I know it may not seem like a big deal anymore in groups to point out one player and just make fun of them. This is happening more and more and I for one do not like it.
Was doing just regular Halls of Origination and of course I was on my mage Mizorie http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/moon-guard/Mizorie/simple. The other two dps and tank were from the same guild. The hunter kept calling me garbage. I could not figure out why and just thought he was jealous. Right before the last boss, he finally told me why he kept calling me garbage. I am almost fully geared in LFR gear and was not pulling more then 21k dps.
He thought I should have been pulling 40-50k dps and he was also in almost all LFR gear and he was pulling about 14k overall. I tried to point out that 20k was good enough for regular and no one died at all. He did not want to hear any of it and I had finally asked him why didn’t he start a vote to kick on me. He then proceeded to tell me he did not want to wait for another group member. Of course that makes perfect sense, call me garbage but don’t kick.
I really see this more in LFR though. One or two people will make fun of someone who may be the lowest dps or asks how a certain boss encounter goes. It gets so bad that most of the time the group wipes and wipes and people leave. Vote kicks go out on everyone below 15k dps. Most of the people below 15k dps are there for the gear because they really need it from what I have been able to see.
I read all this talk about name calling in schools but what about online games as well. Granted Blizzard is making it easier to report swearing, spamming, and all that but they forgot about name calling. Most of the name calling I see is normally involving swearing but not to the point where you can feel justified in reporting it. Is there any options besides ignore?
