Get into a group that has a tank and healer from the Kel'Thuwhatever server. Tank is chain-pulling, healer only heals him, I die and they keep on moving, ask for a rez (It's steamvaults, so it's a long run) but they keep on going. When it's clear they aren't going to stop, I run back, meanwhile the other two dps are dead as well, and they are still going. So at this point I just tag along, far enough back that I get xp but I'm not in aggro range. They notice, and start dragging bosses to me. Soulstone ftw. We complete the dungeon that way, meanwhile they continue to make comments "they asked for a rez, that isn't in my spellbook, perhaps they meant a res?... " and so on.

Is the rest of that server like that?.. They really are full of themselves.

But at least they cleared the dungeon for me, :lol:


Aside from 'trolls be trollin, mon', I don't understand why they wouldn't just 2 man them by running in, since they'd also get all the loot that way.

Heck, I'm having a blast soloing stuff.

Because travelling to instance entrances takes effort, just like healing people other than yourself and your pet tank.

It's rare, but still distressing when people in random groups behave like complete jerks. However, the vote kick mechanism does provide some social sanction. The three dead dps could have kicked the trolling healer and tank. The social norms in WoW are actually quite strong and often you'll find people agree on what behaviour can be characterised as that of a complete jerk[1]. It's when you are the minority in a group of 3 or 4 from the same guild that you have be careful. Even then, your ignore list can provide protection against being subject to the same trolls again.


[1]A loud mouthed shaman kept pulling in a Stratholme PuG, refusing to follow the group in clearing out some bosses - that had to be cleared to get to the end - and comically dying/rezzing when left to his own devices. At one point, the healer asked people to wait and the shaman piped up "Why? Are you trying to kick me?" The healer said wearily "If only...". That got me thinking, so I instigated a vote kick - reason for vote kick: "If only...".

When people are behaving like that they'll almost certainly be making sure never to leave combat long enough for a vote kick.

This. Usually, in my experience anyway, folks who are trolling and know they are likely to be kicked will do this. Folks who are just poor players will often have some pauses.

I've also seen a tank and healer team with one dps to kick the other two dps, so more xp could be gained. Works pretty well considering the amount of damage a good tank does in a leveling 5-man.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Piracy is a gray area. I do get some content thru dubious means, including comics and shows, but I end up buying them later on unless I totally dont like the show.

Sherlock BBC? torrented, but now own the Blu-Ray
GoT? same.
Transformers comics? Get them online, then buy the trade paperbacks.

I dunno, without it I'd have missed several series... series I later support by buying the actual product.

I know I'm not the only one. Even the guy that owns the local comic shop is of the same idea. Go figure.

I haven't straight up pirated anything in a very long while. Hell, I just ponied up the 130 or so for a legit copy of Office 2013 and I couldn't be happier.

Anymore these days, a combination of having ample disposable income and an extreme aversion to the amount of work it takes to acquire illicit digital stuffs just makes it so if I want something, I buy it through legit channels.

I've been buying games ever since steam made it so stupidly easy and cheap to do so. Only recently though did I begin buying software and music.

If you like something, support the people who made it. If you can't afford to do so, maybe you should budget your funds better?

It's grey when it's not enforced, or there is no legal avenue to view/acquire. My wife watches a ton of Thai TV that's all uploaded to YouTube. Apparently the producers don't care, because she's never seen it taken down yet. And while we subscribe to Crunchyroll, there are other anime that she watches through other sites (or YouTube) because they aren't available someplace else (especially Thai dubbed).

Now sites that have unauthorized manga online, that would certainly cross the line, since you can find shops here that carry most of them.

Meanwhile... the UK is legalizing the theft of images. http://petapixel.com/2013/04/29/uk-passes-controversial-copyright-act-may-yield-a-firestorm-of-litigation/ What this means is that if an image doesn't come up in a Google image search with a definite creative source, it can be stolen by the big image libraries (Getty, etc) and resold.

So, the corporate entities can steal, but we can't?.. :wink:

Neither of those makes it grey, in fact the second one is close to about as far away from grey as one can get.

I hit that moment earlier today where the former raider brain finally says 'Why am I still bothering to worry about upgrading my tank set first? It's not like I'm going to be tanking anything really.'

I hit that wall this past week where it was "why am I killing myself to cap valor when my raid team is still in T14?" so now it's gonna be do the 3 or so ToT LFRs and kill a few rares, and if I don't cap, whatever.

I realized the same thing last night when I was valor capped and went "wait.. there's nothing I can even buy that's an upgrade" and then I spent it all on offspec shit.

The problem comes when (in my case) I don't even need offspec gear and I'm few valors short of cap :(

Yeah, I've been having some fun on my monk, not sure how long that'll last. My fury warrior can do the ToT, but doesn't have much reason to (i'd started gearing him in case I needed 2 toons that could do MSV). I figure at this point, I'm sticking around for garrosh. I still like playing prot, but between the choice of tanking LFR on my pally and not tanking, I chose not tanking (outside the occasional 'need another tank for nalak, oondasta, etc').

Oh, I could use some of the gear, at least on my spriest (bought the trinket last night, still need bracers and cape). The issue is with the other off-set gear, which really isn't better than 502 tier once you factor in the set bonuses, except for the "extra" piece, depending on what you get lucky with.

Glad I'm not gearing a druid....

I'm in the same place. T14 raid group, not capping, don't know how bothered I can be to cap.

My big deal is that I still have a damned blue weapon because I just can't get the LFR weapons to drop (although I have 6 head tokens at 483 level). Do I buy the BS one which is only an increase from #12 to #10 a far as Mr Robot is concerned, or keep hitting my head against a wall trying to get a proper one?

Last xpac we killed heroic Deathwing; this one we're way behind.

I'm getting to the same spot as well - I gave up guild leadership a couple of weeks ago. I'm preparing to go back to school hardmode, and I seriously cannot be arsed to bust my butt between work, school, and gearing for raids that may (or may not!) happen, despite people signing up (even as tentative), because we sometimes scramble to fill 1-3 spots.

It's just one less headache for me. If the new GM tells me to go get on someone to do something, and I can, I'll do it. If I can't, I won't.
