Here's the latest from the Dum Dum Girls, Bedroom Eyes. Dee Dee Dum Dum (one Miss Kristen Gundred) used to be in a San Diego band I adored, Grand Ole Party; but, like most bands I discover before they hit it big, they broke up after their first album was released. The Dum Dum Girls are a way different animal than GOP, but at least their latest album is an improvement over the first, which sounded like it was recorded in a public bathroom.
This morning, I queued as healer for heroics on my pally alt. After the first pull in GB, the group told me to leve or they would kick me because my gear sucked, my pally is 342 equipped, which is plenty to heal heroics in. (On my disc priest, I've been healing heroics since everyone was 330 or so) I've had similar occurrences happen to me, my friends, and pugs. My question is has anyone else noticed a rise in hostility in the LFD recently, or have I just had a bunch bad luck in my groups?
Hard to base trends on anecdotal evidence. There will always be jerks in the Dungeon Finder, just as there will always be guys who AFK to smoke, or mages who roll on spirit gear, or tanks who run in full resilience gear. It's the facts of life, the facts of li-i-ife.
