    Really?

    This will save me some serious time when I upgrade my hard drive. The guy I know who's done it has had issues, but that's probably just his flaky SSD acting up.

    Thank God.

    I have BC+Wrath on discs, but I got Cata as a digital purchase and having to redownload that shit would've been the worst thing ever.

    Steam, too.

    Reinstalls are actually pretty painless now, it lets you log in fairly quickly and a lot of of it gets downloaded in the background

    A note to the terrible pug DK in my ZA just now:

    Please don't pull an extra pack with Howling Blast then claim the tank is bad for not immediately having threat on everything. Please stop standing in every aoe on hex lord, without a thought as to idk, popping AMS or IBF. No, we actually CAN do something about the lifebloom on the boss... No, we have no purge, you are correct. Check your unholy tab in your spellbook for a thing called "Necrotic Strike."

    Nope, you're correct, I am a terrible healer for not keeping us up through the 9th set of Spirit Bolts. Yes, I should understand that you don't have the gear to do more than 6k DPS and I should be commending you for the .3% more damage you're doing over the tank. On a single target boss. As a Frost DK. (OK, he topped out at 7200 DPS Hex Lord. I had to know.... So in PvP Frost, on my DK, *naked* other than the 359 PvP Axe... I can do about 7k on the target dummies. And those target dummies can't get away thanks to desecration.)

    Oh, now that the instance is complete you admit the TRUTH.... You were "trolling" us the whole time. You aren't actually really, really bad, you were just PRETENDING to be. Mmm hmm.

    So yeah, overall, your normal asshat in an instance. The thing that terrifies me though: I'm certain that the kid honestly thought that he wasn't the problem. I probably wouldn't have even noticed if he hadn't been flipping shit in party chat the entire instance. Nothing was ever his fault (or the ungemmed, unenchanted boomkin doing 2/3rds the overall damage of the tank; "boomkins are bad right now." He's hopping around and occasionally moonfiring)

    So here's a brilliant idea that will speed up DPS queues; Let me kick more than one person per run.

    Wait, how on earth did this guy even get into ZA anyway?

    You grouped with Scrubbymgee and you're shocked he was a scrub? I mean, Ish, he was advertising his fail. He warned you prior to your combat engagement that he was a scrub. You have no one to blame but yourself.

    Quoted for fact.

    Kicks need to be a swift and brutal fact of life for bads, until they quit random queueing.

    Well see, I knew Scrubby was a scrub from the get go, but his buddy was just idk, drunk, high, afk.... Possibly someone just poured catnip on their keyboard and let their cat go to town while they went afk, idk. There's just nothing you can do in that situation.... Kick the mouthy goose or kick the terrigoose, it's lose-lose. There was the hope that he'd follow his buddy, but no luck.

    It just sucks. As soon as you boot someone, everyone else has permission to be pantsonhead retarded the rest of the run.

    Only if it's a tank I think? Possibly tank & healer.

    It was a countermeasure to prevent the pricks that would "sell" tanking queues when they were about to log for the day.

    So, after taking advantage of Call to Tanks malfunctioning, and queueing a couple of times for the sack as a healer, I have come to a conclusion:

    Healing randoms through heroics is terrifying.

    In their defense, if you queued as a tank they probably assumed you were already geared as such. I know I would have. Not an excuse for starting a fight before all are ready, but still.

    what

    no

    come on, it's really not uncommon for people to swap their gear to the right stuff out of what they use for soloing when they get into an instance

    and it certainly doesn't entitle someone to just rush ahead and basically start pulling a boss

    impatient dps are shitfaces who need to learn how to wait and not act like they're four

    Yes. As I said, it doesn't excuse them from not waiting until everyone is ready, but if you're already queuing as a tank, you have an insta-queue anyway. There's no reason not to just have your gear swapped and be ready ahead of time. It's no different than everyone zoning in and saying "afk bathroom" or whatever. Be ready if you queue, that's all.

    That is the silliest assumption.

    Lots of tanks solo in an offspec.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with the point. You have an insta-queue as a tank - taking two seconds to click your tank set button in the equipment manager before you hit 'i' isn't asking too much. Of all the randoms I did, and I did I shitload, I can count on one hand how many times I had to wait for a tank to gear up after we zoned in.

    Stop it.

    I'm surprised not one person agreed with me about guild banks last page. I would just rather manage my own finances than trust strangers to do it for me. I'm also not going to donate things I earned to the bank for people who did not earn them to mooch. I do not want to be someone else's gold farmer. I have played this game since beta and have never seen anything good come from the bank of any guild I've been in, but apparently I am not preaching to the choir so I will drop it.

    Considerate is when I don't kick a dps for being an idiot and wiping the group due to impatience while they try and chew me out for their incompetence. Considerate is covering for the multitudes of little errors dps make to top the meters which put us in danger every run. Considerate is dragging 1-3 mouthbreathers through an instance.

    It's not too much to ask you stop for 10 seconds in exchange for that.

    Yes it actually is. Especially depending on the kind of tank, if you're a paladin, we now have to wait for you to recover your mana as well post-switch. That's time that doesn't need to be taken. Like I said, it's no different from having someone go afk to go to the bathroom right after zoning in.
