Previously, I bemoaned the completely silent Pug. I am reconsidering that. A completely silent pug would be preferable to some of the things I’m hearing in party chat lately.
Now, the frustrating thing about the dungeon finder, for me, is that you don’t get payout unless you actually finish. That is, if you’re going for VP. So there is nothing worse than having to drop group halfway through. It’s a complete waste of time.
I always have the option of sticking it out, but my conscience and, let’s be honest, downright rage makes me unable to continue on with those assholes. Kicking the offending player is one option, but if it’s more than one (like they’re in the same guild) you’re sort of screwed.
But, I’ve decided, if they just BROADCAST that they are assholes from the start, it is probably more efficient to just cut my losses, drop group, and do something else until I can requeue.
How do you know that they are assholes? Here’s the handy list of “warning words and references.”
- Any reference to genitalia. I should have known I was in trouble when the tank whispered me that his friend was “jizzing himself” over my gear. Uh, thanks. And stay away from my gear with that.
- The “n” word. It’s just an auto drop for me right there. No good can come of that.
- Spamming, including chat spamming or emote spamming. Last night, the morons were repeatedly /rolling, cluttering things up so I couldn’t even inform them that I was abandoning them to their own idiocy.
- “The last healer sucked.” The last healer probably did not suck. The last healer probably got fed up with you morons. Chances are, I will too.
- “FFS”. This never fails to point out the asshole. It’s like required training in asshole school that “FFS” must be appended to any obnoxious statement made.
