    Default When DPS is bad in LFG PUG

    Im an honest person so I don't like to have to lie to people , I run a parser so I know when DPS is bad.

    I usually say , sorry group DPS is low can you please kick me and find another tank.

    usually this results in terrible insults .


    So what do you do when you get a group with the worst dps ever ?
    Use the ninja disconnect?
    Log out ?
    Tell them your dog just got run over and you have to go ?
    Fake a heart attack ?

    Just leave, dont worry about what they think, they dont know you in real life so who cares. And im sure the queue to find another tank is close to instant anyways...

    Maybe you could try....
    Guys dps is a little low, is everything ok?
    Maybe that will work if not just tell them, sorry dps to low for me I am off.

    Dont ask for a kick, just leave.

    The reson you are getting insulted is the way you ask.

    Maybe you should just grow a pair and leave.

    Agreed, why should they kick you? You clearly think that you are better, insult them and then ask them to do you a favor?

    I really have to think, if you're so pathetic as a tank that you have to random queue LFG, you deserve whatever you get.

    C'mon folks, heading into the 7th month of this game. If you didn't suck, you'd have a friends' list, guildmates, etc who'd be happy to group with you.

    I rarely see a random where we can't make it past the DPS checks. In the rare event that you have tried and tried and can't get past it then call it. If it's just taking longer than you'd like to kill things and you end up dropping or having a fit then you're part of the problem that is probably worse than someone lacking with DPS.

    We all started near the bottom at one point.

    Some of us are in guilds where no one still needs T2, and find it kinda fun to putz around with some random people.

    Personally I just politely ask someone why their DPS is so low/note it in party. If I don't get a response, or get a defensive, nub-like response, I either try to votekick or stand there 'till they votekick me. If it's an instance without a DPS check (ie anything but CC or DSM), and they're at least nice about it and are trying, I'll just go along with it unless it becomes a problem.

    Why doesn't Rift have damage meters again? Oh yeah, because there are tools like this.

    It does have them (3 different ones in fact!), and it's tools that waste my time with crappy dps that make me mad. Also, with addons, we'll have loads more.

    Some fights are a definite dps check and wiping over and over is no fun. If you want to leave because the group is not pulling the dps you think is needed then you should just leave and not expect them to kick you. Just eat the CD since you are technically deserting your group by choice. If there is a dps check boss in the random you were put into a little talk with your team may have helped them improve or understand they were not ready for that instance. When you sign up with the LFG tool you take the chances of being put in a group with people that are not up to your standards. If you are struggling in the dungeon due to low dps and you absolutely cannot get past a boss then I understand the need to have a talk with the group but if you are basing it purely on a parse, you are in the wrong.
    The other day my group had a really bad tank in XRD. He wanted to get the water saga part done and was by no means ready for a tier 2. A dps in the group who usually tanks asked him if he had a dps spec to switch to so we could move on past the first couple of trash pulls without dying again. The tank did not have a dps spec but the group was pretty nice and let him stay and do really bad dps (I was pulling more dps as chloro) while the other dps switched and tanked the remainder of the run.

    With Addons it'll be much easier though.
