Douchedik - CrushridgeFollow

I was in a dungeon with him--he was the Tank, and I was DPS--and I died. I saw the Healer just ahead of me before I died. I politely (because I'm also a Healer under my Restoration Druid) asked the Healer to resurrect me, which should've been easy since she was right there. Douchedik, the Tank, replied with, "No. Walk." I asked him why he didn't want the Healer to just resurrect me when that would be faster than me running all the way back to them (we were almost finished in the dungeon). He said, "We're not losing much damage here anyway with you gone." and etc. Then I was kicked out of the dungeon while dead. It was ridiculous and a waste of my time. He was bashing me for no reason at all other than the fact that he's just a miserable person.

Blizzard should make it so that if someone is removed from a dungeon group while dead, they're teleported to their location prior to entering the dungeon. Otherwise, jerks can just f you over because they're losers with no IRL happiness.

Wait, you're complaining about the behavior of a guy named what? Report the name and move on with life.

So what? Grab your corpse or deal with the 10 minutes of being somewhat disabled, and move on. It's only a video game. Jeez.

Don't stand in the fire and get your dps up a bit, problem solved.

He won't even remember you're name, meanwhile, you're logged out of the game and unhappy.

If this is your first encounter with a' douchedik', consider yourself lucky, especially if you've been playing for a while. IF you're a new player you'll find that the game is full of 'douchediks.'

Have fun

I really can't understand the mentality that drives someone to go to a forum that isn't the primary venue for a game and post shaming threads about someone it's likely none of us have ever even heard of. I mean, I could kinda understand it on the Oboards... not agree with it, but understand it. But here, it serves less than no purpose.

Edit: On the other hand, I think Crushridge was where Untouchable Sage was located. So, thinking about it, there's the possibility that this might in fact be the correct place. Smiley: tongue

Give the dungeon finder a break. Too much time in there can turn even the most cheery people in vengeful harpies. (and not the **** kind either... Smiley: frown)

I read that as "Vengeful Herpes" and was wondering how sick you had to be to think there was a **** kind. Smiley: laugh

So basically you suck and you got booted from the group and now you're crying?

I would have done the same thing. Learn to play. You shouldn't be dying in a regular dungeon. Ever.

This.

I level a LOT of toons through dungeon finder. If somebody isn't doing much but isn't causing problems, I'll throw em a rez. Healing is dead easy in these though, so if somebody has died, it is likely their fault. If they have been pulling stupid stuff the entire run and have been warned, ya, I just leave them dead. From 15 to, oh, 70 at least you only really need 2-3 quasi-competent people to do a dungeon somewhat smoothly.

If there's a tank and 2 dps pulling 400 each and the bored healer is throwing down 200 dps as well, do the 4 of us really need to keep stopping to rez the guy doing 76 dps who keeps running off to tank his own mob or standing in the one spot of fire in the whole place?

Plus, I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that since you are the sort who will create an account on a general forum to publicly call out a random dude from a leveling run, that you're also the mouthy sort who was complaining/bragging/yapping the entire run anyway.

This is not a good way to make friends. Or progress.

To be fair, we don't actually know if it was a regular dungeon, and we don't really know if the OP was at fault here. I've had my share of dungeon runs over the years, and if there's one thing that I've learned, it's that it's not always the damage dealer's fault for dying.

The vast majority of damage dealing classes in the game lack a way to reset the fight, especially in PvE where you can't just leave combat. Unless you're a Hunter or Rogue, you're **** out of luck if you pull aggro and the tank/healer is AFK.

That being said, naming and shaming is petty and does not belong here. In my opinion, of course.

I broke down and did an armory look up on Douchedik. Anyone would have pulled aggro off of that guy, he's barely wearing any gear, and much of what he's wearing is well outdated, wrong stats, etc etc.

Given he chose such a **** name, and assuming he's dressed similar to how he was when you met him, my suspicion is he's doing it on purpose and you just got trolled.

Ahh, pre-Northrend dungeon runs. I remember when I ran a dungeon in Outland with a Fury Warrior tank. He was wearing cloth pieces because they had more stamina than his old plate armor pieces. Good times.

OP, it sucks when you get into a group with idiots, but that's MMO games for ya. Shrug it off, put the guy on ignore and get back in the queue. Trust me, you'll stop caring eventually.

Smiley: nod

Then once your soul is a shriveled lump of coal you'll be ready to try your hand at tanking or raid leading. It's all part of the natural progression of things. Smiley: wink

Yes but that only works if you actually care.

I was running my 40-ish monk healer a few days ago. Got Dire Maul, zoned in at the start but there was already conversation in progress - the pally was complaining that the tank was in Arms and was going to be terrible. I inspected and found that, besides Arms, he was wearing a mix of INT and AGI mail . .yay. "Not eligible to be kicked." I told them just let's go. Mistweavers have that cool dps=heals thing anyway. So me and the pally basically tank/healed/dps'd our way through a good portion of it with the others saying nothing really. Without ever intentionally healing the "tank" my [dps heals nearest target] deal kept him alive anyway on accident . .great.

At some point, he finally ran down one of the hallways by himself and died quickly. I wasn't going to rez him but he started running back anyway. Finally, like halfway through the place we were able to kick him. We 4-manned it up almost to the last boss before an actual tank showed up.

An hour later, after I had run another dungeon, I got put into Dire Maul again with this same warrior ><

Point is, it's not a big deal. The way LFD/LFR works usually is he who speaks first gets support. Had you been the one complaining about the tank being bad they probably would have refused to heal/rez him instead. Somebody complains, nobody else really cares enough to argue, just move it along.

If everybody here made a thread calling out every bad player/situation they encountered there would be hundreds of threads a day here. If you are fired up about a bad level 24 run, I wish you the best of luck in this game.

You should have put him on ignore. Saves a lot of headaches later.

Eh, probably. I have never used the ignore thing. Didn't even know you could do that cross-server honestly. I usually just laugh it off anyway.

You put em on ignore and it stops pairing you with them in the LFD.

If you use LFG, you will eventually be paired with some idiots, that's a guarantee. I've been playing since mid-Vanilla. I'm a good healer and a solid dps. I've been kicked from groups by people who had no idea what was going on. I just shrug and go on with life. It happens.

I'll only tank "current content" dungeons with friends. I'm a pretty decent tank, but it's not worth the hassle to be constantly dealing with idiots pulling, so I just won't tank current content in LFG. (Old content is so easy that it just doesn't matter.)

I haven't tried much tanking in MoP yet, but...

In Wrath, I found that most groups, I'm willing to say 85-90%, were OK and most stuck to the "rules" of proper dungeoneering.

In Cata, near the beginning I tried Heroics and I kept seeing undergeared idiots. They played "meh", but their gear was so low that we just couldn't bring down the bosses, usually wiping on the first boss. That's when I gave up on Heroics. In Normals, those are so easy it doesn't matter, though I remember wiping a couple times on Erudax because everybody has tunnel vision.

Near the end of Cata, when End Time heroics came out, I'd have to say at least 90% of the players were OK players. Some awesome, some "meh" but very few actual retards.

Haven't done much in MoP to be honest, part of the reason is I'm not sure I like how some of the tanks "feel" now, but then that might just be me being used to how Cataclysm felt. Since they hugely nerfed tanks' solo DPS, I haven't been questing as tank specs, so I've fallen out of practice... I did HH with my Paladin tanks, and I didn't like how squishy I felt. But then again, I was wearing Contender's gear at the time and they made his pumpkin soldiers retardedly hard to kill, so you end up getting 3-4 groups on you before he dies.

Can't comment on tanks since I don't play any but heroics are so easy right now that it is really difficult to find a group that will wipe even once.
