You're a part of this community, too. You have you say in these things as much as they do. Show them what you're worth and make them talk. :)
If it's a recurring problem, find a casual group of friends or guild to play with. That will help your experience a ton.
I logged in to reply to your idiotic comment.
The problem is, your M.I.T. dropout Diablo 3 developers have created what is known as a crappy spec. Now pugging in this game is what WoW has become, telling someone to ignore pug groups, because 90% of them will do this, is terrible advice.
How about you go to the devs, slap them, and come back to post how things are going then.
Insulting us is getting you real far, eh? Enjoy your vacation. o/

<span class="truncated">...</span>I appreciate your concerns. But asking for buffs here is a bit off-topic, and we've deleted multiple of your posts already.
Being insulted for playing your spec means there is a stigma across the community that your spec sucks.
02/13/2017 03:06 PMThis thread was discussing the implications of feeling "insulted" for playing your spec, and is not a place for individuals to ask for buffs.

Which plays DIRECTLY into the problem you're trying to pin point here.
Might I suggest actively providing intelligent response to our community instead of the jargen you spew at us now.
What "intelligent response" do you want? I'm not sure shooting to insult my intelligence here (for no reason, I might add), is really going to help this conversation or whatever your point may be.
Like . . . you guys can't change human nature. Some of your responses Ornyx are asking for the entire community to up and change their behavior in a pretty significant way.
It's one thing to work towards less toxic behavior in terms of aggression/name calling and such, but expecting people to fundamentally change ingrained human behavior is kind of a bit much don't you think?
Also, just to point out, 10% difference between top and bottom isn't bad per se, but when you're measuring dps by the hundreds of thousands that 10% is pretty alarming when you see it in game.
And not to put too fine a point on it, but you (blizzard) are the ones who design the content. If you eliminated any and all dps checks, then you would see the playerbase soften their attitudes. You guys are the ones putting stuff like Krosus, Tichondrius, enrage timers, immediate threat adds, etc in the game. As long as these exist, people will default to "only top performing specs are good" mentality.
I don't really think that's true. The behavior here is very much learned, and didn't exist before folks were staring at damage meters and 'gear score' to try to gain leverage over others. It's a bit much to ask that we divulge from that entire path, as its very much a part of WoW these days, but I don't think its much to understand that low DPS may not be the players fault, and that they don't necessarily deserve the blame or treatment they may get.
But yes, we (Blizzard) as designers also have an obligation and a hand in on the bargain here. Again, feedback is being sent along relative to this. Most of the watched discussion on balance topics now it happening on the Class Development forum so I suggest chiming in there if you get a chance.
Let's keep this on topic, and avoiding insulting each other. Thanks.
