How To Express An Opinion Without Being A Dick II

Dear Children Masquerading As Raiders And Even Officers In My Guild,

Can you grow the fuck up?  Look, I realize that So and So has an opinion you don’t agree with.  I realize that he has all the tact of a 16 year old in the middle of an emo fit with his parents sometimes.  But that doesn’t mean that you have carte blanche to turn around and act 5, instead. You can damn well put your epeens away and cut out the snide remarks.  It doesn’t help, and it doesn’t make you look better, nevermind right.  And when two of you are officers and in the middle of a raid, you really have no fucking excuse.

God damn, people.

Maybe said person needs to be removed from the guild, maybe he just causes too much strife because we’re not a good fit for him but, damn.  Again, not permission to act like children yourselves.   You can take your dodge/parry/stam stacking bloodshed somewhere else, and not during raid time.

RAWR.

    Have you seen the healers? Particularly the author here? Yeah. There’s your blame point. *nods sagely*

    Rule #1 of raiding – never make your healer mad… ever. It won’t end well for you.

    @Rivs – Couldn’t agree more! :P

    @Arrens – LMAO!

    @Cel – I’d rather just ignore people than get along…

    @You – Funnily enough we almost did wipe because one of the said tanks wasn’t paying attention and at least one of the healers *cough* wasn’t either which nearly resulted in a very unpleasant, albeit humorous, wipe.

    Any Aussies in the guild available to hack never ending crap on the offending raider? Or are the Aussies the offending raider? If it’s the later either learn to laugh it off and call them a wanker at every opportunity (so much as side stepping into fire should warrant this) or save your self the trouble and boot them now! Aussies tend to be a vocal lot… I should know I am bloody one!

    i say we go with option C, whatever that may end up being :P

  10. #10 by ekinara on December 2, 2009 - 5:20 pm

    option C involves suggesting they are a Kiwi (despite knowing otherwise) at any opportunity until you cause an entertaining rage quit usually :-p
    Or liberal use of the words Tool and bugger (calling them a tool and acting like an aussie)

  11. #11 by evisceratespam on December 2, 2009 - 6:01 pm

    bloody hell, i think we’ve found or option mates!

  12. #12 by ekinara on December 2, 2009 - 6:07 pm

    Now repeat after me.

    “Bugger off ya tool!”

    One thing I think would help stupid Vent chatter is if people realized that everyone in the raid is judging the people who talk on Vent, and more often than not, sharing that judgement with their friends in the raid via text chat.

    Keeping that in mind, a VERY good way of figuring out where opening your big yapper during the raid is a good idea is to ask yourself the following question…”Are the other 9/24 people in this group going to think I’m a complete tool if I say what I’m about to say?” Speaking as one of the raiding masses, I gotta tell ya, a lot of the time, the answer to that question is yes. That goes for all you 16-year-old-or-might-as-well-be-know-it-alls-who-knows-exactly-what-we-should-do-despite-standing-in-the-fire-and-dying-5-seconds-into-the-fight. And that goes double for the people who respond to that 16 year old, giving him further opportunity to yammer on with sentences starting with “no, dudes…”. Seriously, we hate you. A lot. And believe me, we are mocking you mercilessly in whispers and private channels. And if we’re the healers, we’re debating letting you die next fight.

    And I should know, I used to talk in Vent WAAAAY too often. Then I started applying the basic rule…is what I’m going to say something everyone else in the raid needs to know RIGHT NOW. If not, I shut up.

    My guild(that I’m raid leader of)recently had to kick someone very much like your drama causing douche. Everytime she spoke it was with a bitchy tone and it was always a whine or complaint of some sorts.

    When it got to the point that raids were started 40minutes late due to her “issues” she got a very swift /gkick. And everyone in the guild has been SOOO much happier for it.
