Dear_Gnome: An open letter community for WoW
You're as much of a prick as the guy your server is named for. I should have known something was afoot when after the fight against the horde of Sha creatures in the Terrace when you said "Each group gets worse every time". I wanted to say "Well then feel free to raid with your guild" but I held my tongue.|
Then (since this was only my second raid in raid finder and I wanted to do it right) when I asked if we were targeting the skull marked boss first (since I've seen different groups do things differently) You mocked me, called me a noob, laughed at me, and asked if I got my character from eBay. I tried explaining it was my first time here (meaning the raid) and you said "First time in wow. Did you get it on eBay?" meaning my toon. I stopped explaining and when a few others joined in, I said 'Fuck this" and left as soon as the boss was pulled.
I just didn't want to do it wrong. Even when I said as much and added "I could have just done whatever and not asked." you were still an epic rare douchemount.
Maybe I did ask a dumb question, but if you waltzed into WoW knowing everything perfectly, then you can talk. Meanwhile, eat shit and die. You and your toadies are all on ignore now, so hopefully I will never queue with you lot again.
Get fucked with a pitchfork sideways,
PS I should also have known something was afoot when as soon as we all popped in, six people suddenly ditched, and we had to requeue. I'm guessing that they ot a dose of your douchebaggery, too.
"Each group gets worse every time".
No, you dickbag. Its people like YOU that make the game worse. Go find a pike and sit on it.

It never ceases to amazes me how many pricks there are on Garrosh. I don't think I've ever encountered a player from there that hasn't been a problem.
As a player from Garrosh-US, I apologize if you are running into jerks. We're not all like that. I like to pride myself on politeness and helpfulness.
I continually run into jerks from other servers too, I ask that you don't tar the entire server by assholes. There's assholes everywhere in the game - so much that I won't run lfr or lfg anymore.
Edit: I've gone and looked up the name and sadly, I don't recognize it. It's horde side though, and I play alliance. I run all my horde from Cenarius, separate servers for factions. Again though, I apologize on behalf all the good and nice players.

Thanks that does help :) sorry to make it seem like I was painting you all the same! I know the feeling: I cringe when someone on Proudmoore is a jerk, because 90 percent of us on both sides are awesome.

I recently started over on Proudmoore and most people are super nice so far. (Ally-side.)
I'm glad to hear it! Horde is lovely there too. Ally is super nice, I have a Gnome Warrior on Ally side there. If you see one named Deedie, give me a /wave :)
Sorry you had a rough time of it, people in LFR can be jerks for no other reason than because they can. And like all bullies, it just gets worse when they know they've hit a mark. Sucks, and shouldn't be that way.
If it helps any, I've played since just after BC launched and in all the time Skull has meant OMG Kill this thing first! X is second... the marks used differ beyond that, usually the only other one I've seen that is pretty standard is moon for sheepage and diamond for banish. I would go with kill / target skull then X unless the raid lead or tank says otherwise.
Good luck, and we aren't all jerks in LFR. I take pleasure in talking back to someone being a jerk in LFR, even if they are "right" (in general, not in your case) in what they are saying there is no reason to be hateful or rude to someone. There are ways to say things and "OMG god you f'n noob, LOL E-bay" is *not* it.
agreed on all points.
Targets usually mean:
skull: first kill
X: kill 2nd
blue square: hunter trap
purple: banish/bind elemental
I've seen some variation but I usually take a marker to mean some CC--and skull and X to be kill first/second marks. :)
Now I've got it solidly in my head how it works. thanks!
