[Other] Quick "Hi DPS" rant

148 Upvotes

EDIT: Ok, so from what I can see there's massive differences between EU and NA (NA playerbase is a lot smaller AFAIK, but it might be outdated info). Also I might need to clarify if you politely ask "Hey, can I also join as DPS?" I will let people stay if there's still room and plan around it. I'm SPECIFICALLY talking about the people who blatantly join with "hi dps" and either go radio silent until raid start or argue that it was ok for them to "skip the line" since I "needed" them anyways. They don't know that. I might also be waiting on some friends and wanted to have the supports sorted beforehand, knowing my friends could only play DPS atm.

Ok, all of us know the problem. The constant people who don't read the goddamned group description, and just join as DPS, even though you haven't asked for one.

Yesterday I organized a quick W1 pug, because a few friends of mine still needed the Gorseval drop for their legendary armor achievement. So my friends join the squad and we've got 7 slots left to fill. Great! So I fire up the LFG tool. "W1 | Know Mechanics | 2 Heal, 2 Quick, 2 Alac", since I want to encourage people to not only play HAM or HFB. I mean fair, I wasn't feeling like playing a support role that day, my one friend only has a non-support power daredevil, and the other didn't feel like doing quick either... but I'd say we have the privilege of having made the group so who cares. First a quickDPS joinc, nice! Then a alacDPS, perfect as well! I modify the group description to account for the two support DPS and it begins. Roughly three people insta join with "Hi (c)DPS". I've somewhat had it with these people doing that at this point. I don't mind if people join saying "I could do xyz, but I'd prefer to do dps today if you don't mind". All fair. But just joining and saying "Hi dps" annoys me to no end if that wasn't what the group was looking for.

So I just ask "Did the group description mention us needing DPS at this point? Must've been a mistake". And this guy just goes "Well you'll need DPS anyways. What's the issue?"...... I'D LIKE TO HAVE MY SUPPORTS AND IMPORTANT ROLES SORTED OUT FIRST, THAT'S THE GODDAMN ISSUE. I wouldn't be so pissed about all of this if these people would at least show a BIT of politeness or willingness to fulfill a different role if necessary. Is that already too much to ask? (I mean it seems so).

But then again it's probably also my fault for not just instantly kicking these people. Kicking someone always leaves a bad aftertaste in my mouth.

Resist your urge to hard carry players by giving them max boons and free gold.

Let them make mistakes, fail, and learn from deaths.

Provide them with knowledge and guidance but don't coddle them.

Thank you & have a nice day.
