After much technical difficulty this week, I find myself with a nice new laptop. Things got up and running just in time to run a couple of randoms with Carrera as she grinds Gnomer rep for her “Peep.” She’s now about half way to Exalted, after visits to Dire Maul and Stratholme. For the most part, times were good though I had a tank who liked to pull everything despite being a bit under-geared. I’m amazed how people still underestimate Dire Maul, I really am. What I’m truly amazed at is the fact people are rolling on everything now. Saw a Rogue roll on Blue Plate gear, a Tauren Warrior roll on Healing Cloth, and a Hunter roll against me on Mail gloves that had Spirit & Intelligence.
With a little digging, I’ve found people seem to be carefree about “ninja” rolling on lower levels. They seem to think people won’t care because they’ll be three levels higher tomorrow. Whether that is actually the case or not, people still need to actually be able to do their part. Some folks are also twinks. They don’t necessarily plan to be three levels higher. They might want to stay at the level they’re at. But most importantly of all, there’s common sense and courtesy. Then again, I’ve heard people more and more frustrated over antics such as this. Is it new players who don’t know better? Is it new players that don’t care? Is it old players that don’t care? It could also be there’s the same amount of ignorance that always existed, only we’re more exposed to them via the random dungeon finder.
What do you think? Is there a reason there seems to be more “jerks” than before and have you encountered many?
