This is more of a PSA than a question or anything like that
I have recently returned to the game and started gearing my main back up, and I’ve seen the usual levels of impatience and toxicity trying to do stuff in pugs at max level, thankfully I’ve found a guild that runs mythics non stop and does alt runs that I might be able to get in on, but that’s not that this is about.
I also joined back because my friend has always wanted to get into the game and after hearing about the double XP buff he decided there would be no better time than now
In his first ever dungeon, the tank vote-kicks him for not doing enough damage
Please bear in mind that he is the only one not wearing heirlooms and is literally only hours from having picked up the game for the first time
Luckily everyone else in there happened to have at least half a brain and didn’t vote to kick him, but I proceeded to call him out and I’m fully expecting him to report me for what I said but I don’t really care, because this is the kind of toxicity that is preventing new players from wanting to play this game and it is one of the biggest things keeping the game from being as popular as it once was
I understand wanting to level fast, but if YOU THINK you are SO GOOD at this game that you deserve to kick a CLEARLY NEW player from the a freaking ragefire chasm run, you better be 12/12 mythic because that is so unbelievably bad for the game and so toxic that words can’t describe.
This really annoyed me, because suppose that was a completely new player that didn’t have someone of 10+years experience in voice comms with them, they walk into a dungeon where they are the only one not wearing this really powerful gear that they likely don’t understand they can’t possibly get, and some idiot tries to kick them just for doing slightly less damage, probably making the dungeon slower by less than a minute at this level
He then proceeded to try and defend his actions by saying he was “not there to boost your friend”, which any normal player of this game knows is one of the most ignorant and STUPID statements you can ever make. I asked him how he expected new players to ever get into the game or get good when they come across people with attitudes like his and he had no answer.
Well, I’ll finish off my rant by saying if you happen to agree with the actions of this guy, you do not deserve to complain about this game, because your toxic attitude is objectively making it worse, and if you can’t drop that even in a level 15 dungeon then you don’t deserve to trash this game at all because you are actively contributing to its decline.
