    Default Annoying WF behavior.

    I'm not talking about failing to target healers etc.

    I'm talking about the guy who, when the teams starts losing, starts yelling at everyone about how bad they suck.

    I'm talking about the guy who complains in raid chat about no healers or not getting enough heals.

    Almost inevitably, it is a loldps who wouldn't roll a spec where they had to throw a heal or support if their life depended on it. Also, when you look at the scoreboard, they haven't touched an objective. Their only concern is their dps and kb total.

    So don't be that guy. You want reliable heals, roll a healer, you want to win games, shut up and focus on objectives.

    And don't be that guy, you are annoying and aren't contributing anything.

    Actually I mainly play a bard. Have another toon I either play as a dom, or a chloro sometimes when there is not enough healing. My warrior is a Beastmaster. Have yet to roll a cleric.

    But in any case, don't be that guy. You want heals, roll a healer, you want to win, focus on objectives.

    From my point of view, I roll a Warrior for DPS and to Tank in Dungeons.

    If I want to heal, I switch to my Cleric and/or Mage and heal and from a PvP stand point, I am always healing and near enough topping in the 50's bracket with my healers. I don't DPS with my Mage or Cleric, I heal.

    So when I am playing my Warrior, as a DPS setup, I don't expect healing but at times I honestly get frustrated by the shear fact that the main healer type Classes, e.g. Clerics and Mages, DPS only.

    What's more annoying is when the opposing team has 2-3 or more healers and your team has no healers yet has mainly clerics and/or mages in it who won't switch roles. That's the annoying factor that people ( DPS ) have a right to get frustrated at.

    And i'll just add, the objective(s) for a Warrior DPS is to do damage and get kills, on healers and any strays. They are suppose to do that whilst from how I see it, a Rogue will do the objective, snatch flags, or a Healer will take a Rune and so on. But that's my view. Not saying I always stand by that myself, I grab runes and do objectives if need be as my Warrior.

    this is commonplace in any competitive environment look at pro sports there is always someone blaming someone else on their team after a bad loss. I dunno why it bothers people so much, wf chat is boring without guys like ownage and the likes.

    Let's pretend I was healing a WF and I looked at the scoreboard and discovered that my heals and that of my teammates was no. 1 and no. 2.

    Then I look at the score ordered by DPS and found that my top two team-mates were no. 5 and 6.


    The conclusion reached by my team would be that I am bad and it is my fault that they died, not the fact that they are undergeared, over-extending idiots facetanking the enemy team in stupid specs.


    This is Rift.

    I haven't had a bad outburst in awhile, but I had one last night.

    Same old crap. Wardens and healers in pve gear. People wondering why we are losing. Players not rotating around codex and fighting for nothing but dex. And all of this happened around primetime.

    So people who are honestly bad at this game, ruin it for people who are actually good, but it's okay. I just have to take it like a champ while I attempt to carry everyone else in the WF.

    I think I will just start calling everyone filthy mouth breathers. (Thanks Mire.)

    Or I could just stick to playing in the morning (Aussie/Oceanic time).

    I especially like the rants post WF while looking at the score board as if it will make any difference people should have focused XYZguy after the match has already ended.

    Had a warfront where the other side had mired, I think, some cleric anyways. Well being a nice guy, and our team being short healers, I went chloro.

    Ten minutes into that KR, the score is 2-2, we've been fighting by the last point on our side for like 6 of those minutes. Only two people on each side are messing with the power sinks in the middle, if a third guy from our side went down there we could probably just walk our way to victory.

    That was the first issue.

    Since that wasn't happening the only other option is to break the stalemate by the power core. I mention in warfront chat that mired(or whoever it was) hadn't died yet, and had barely taken any damage at all.

    Some dude (ie rogue who was like 5th on dps) responded "oh is that so special, like not dying makes him so awesome right". To which I responded "no, but given he is a healer and you haven't touched him I'd say you guys' target priority is bad". I'm sure his response, which i dont recall, was witty, well worded, and not full of expletives at all, and also mentioned how maybe my "target priority was bad"

    The match ended in a draw or loss, forget which, that cleric still never died, that rogue still did atrocious damage.

    Tl:dr our dps was horrible, ignored objectives, and blamed the healer for not killing the other team's healers

    Basically, it was an average warfront

    Darn edit timer I wanted to throw this one into my reply as well.

    I agree with this 99% and even had the exact same scenario you described play out for my bard yesterday, but there's one critical thing you're missing. In my scenario where the healers were rockin and DPS looked abysmal, it wasn't entirely the DPS's fault. The other side was VERY heavy on healers with multiple Puris. This will artificially make DPS look horrible on the score boards due to all the negated/absorbed damage. It doesn't excuse them for saying our own healing was the problem, in-fact, healing IS the problem just not the way it is being presented here.

    Even with lay-z marking, there was just too much cross healing to make a lick of difference for either team. Since DPS cries the loudest when they don't see big numbers on the board, naturally healers are to blame. Very few ever take shields into account on how they affect the score board. It's the ultimate way to troll egotistical players when your shields make their big numbers suddenly feel like a hot dog down a hallway.
