Some of the player base are complete and utter asshats. People play at different levels. Some are hardcore raiders. Some are just casual players who like to run the occasional instance.
I got to see first hand why some people probably quit this game. People can be complete douchebags.
The other day, my wife, a buddy, and queued up for the new Heroics. My wife was bringing along her Paladin who had not been in them yet.
We get Sylvanas for the first boss. She has never done that fight before.
We end up wiping because the tank goes to a differnt ghoul than he said he would and we get exploded.
We run back in and the Warlock is complaining about my wife's and my friend's DPS. "You aren't even above the tank".
I reply...."Neither are you."
Then he goes on a rant linking a few of the blue items my wife is wearing. Last I checked, you do not need full epics to get into the instance.
He just kept going and going. Unforunately, the vote to kick was on cooldown because we had to kick a tank who DCed immediately after we zoned it.
It is not like they were doing terrible DPS. They were both doin between 12 and 13.5k DPS, which is more than enough for these instances.
The whole situation literally made my wife cry. In real life. This is the reason why I never had her do LFG instances. People can be douchebags. It was a new encounter, her gear and DPS was plenty sufficient, and some asshat decided that it was his mission to make someone feel like shit.
If it was real life, I would have punched the motherfucker in the mouth.
This is the reason why we cant have nice things. What if someone gets into their first ever instance...YAY!!!! Part way through, someone starts talking shit and saying nasty things to them despite there being no problems clearing the instance. That person may say...."Fuck it, Im going to play Skyrim". Not only do you lose a WoW player....you lose a potential future MMO player.
One of my buddies who is hardened to it had a situation that seemed somewhat similar. Tanking an instance on his 50 something warrior, a mage is running ahead and pulling mobs. He asks for the mage to stop. Mage continues to pull. Friend says "I hate impatient DPS who dont wait for the tank". The DPS replied "I hate slow ass tanks". My friend did what I would do. Vote to kick for being a douche. He was out and the instance goes on. Unfortunately, this kind of behaviour my spell the end for players who don't feel the need to be insulted by 15 year old boys who are alt tabbed playing CoD and calling people faggots.
WoW needs and occupy movement....Occupy asshats. Do not put up with them. Flex the vote kick.
