I snapped last night in a PUG. Not my proudest moment, but I had enough.
I'm leveling up a new Assassin (think I finally found my favorite class) and got into a group for Hammer Station with me as the tank. In the group were also two Mercs and a Sniper. The healing Merc was good, but low level, as was I, so there were a lot of close calls on the pulls. The Sniper said nothing the entire run. Not even when she went AFK during a boss fight, causing us to wipe due to lack of DPS. The DPS Merc, however, was a total pain in the ass. A prime example of a nubcake.
He would constantly give us useless information and personal opinions on the boss fights, like "This boss only has 17k health (VERY EASY)" and would constantly mock the healer because she was having a hard time healing us all. He'd also use his AOE knockback every single **** pull. I told him to stop and he continued to do it. I told him to stop again and he asked me why. I told him in great detail why and he continued to do it. During one particular pull, I managed to round up all the ranged mobs in a clump and tank them just out of aggro range of another group. In comes the knockback **** and we wipe because he knocks them into the other group.
So, we're on the final boss and I've told the idiot to stop being a **** about a million times. You're probably asking why we didn't just vote kick him. Well, I tried, but apparently only the group leader can vote kick (and requeue) and he was the group leader. Bit of a design flaw there, BioWare, but whatever. I tell them to not stand on the landmines and kill the adds when they spawn. After the first wipe, Retardo tells us to ignore the adds because... and this is the good part... they'll just respawn.
I swear to god, I facepalmed so hard in real life, I still have a red imprint of my palm and three fingers on my forehead.
Anyway, I tell him to stop talking about sh*t he doesn't know anything about. I tell them that we need more DPS if we are to kill him, because the healer can't keep us all up forever. Nitwit over there tells the healer to stop being bad, which made me laugh out loud. I told the DPS Merc to shut the **** up and stop being bad at everything or we'd never finish the Flashpoint. During our boss fights, I'd noticed three things about our DPS Merc's rotation that made me cringe.
1. He never used Rapid Shots or Power Shot. Ever.
2. He loved the AOE knockback, even on bosses that can't be knocked back.
3. Instead of Rapid Shots and Power Shot, he used Sweeping Blasters.
That's right, a barely-worth-it AOE attack on a single target fight. He was maxed out on heat 5 seconds into the fight and then just jumped around on the landmines and used a Missile Blast whenever his heat dropped low enough, instantly capping it again.
So, three or four wipes in (lost track), where I had to handle the boss AND the adds because both the Sniper and the DPS Merc would ignore them and they'd run instantly to the healer, I decided that we'd never finish the run. I told the DPS Merc to uninstall the game because he was too stupid to be alive, let alone play a multiplayer game in which average intelligence is required to succeed.
I've never come across so many idiots in my years of playing WoW. The Fleet general chat is full of stupid. It's unlike anything I ever saw in the major cities in WoW. People can't type worth sh*t and when you correct them, ten angsty teenagers tell you to shut up because they did your mom.
Only one question comes to mind:
WHAT THE @#%^?!
