Ran into these fine fellows, who are apparently slightly elitist. Got kicked not once, but twice from their group, which means they went through the entire list of dps who were queued solo for ToT. Now I understand, they wanted to try and get all three bosses down, but this seems a bit much. Is this an accurate representation of the server or just one guild?
I'm not angry or anything, just passing time in queue to hopefully get into their group once again :P
After grilling my members, there is a reason why you were kicked. The policy in our guild is that cross-server people may be kicked, but if the pug is from our own server, they are not to be kicked.
It pretty much means if you're cross server you'll be inspected, but if you're from Serpentris, you'll not be inspected-- in fact, you'll just run with us. That means that if a lesser geared person from Serpentris came in after you were kicked (you're from Blightwood I believe), that the Serpentris person would not be kicked under any circumstances.
So, bad on you for being in Blightwood. Come be on our server, it's better.
Im sorry, but I dont understand why you would be kicking anyone from a pug group just for being undergeared?
Clearly they have a high enough ilevel to join the instance matcher as the game decides this for us.
It does sound like you're being a little elitest to me, and also really unfriendly.
Im a new 60, I have the item level to do the 60 instances, but the reason I haven't yet is because of stories like this, where people are kicked for not having high enough gear.
Where else are new 60's supposed to get it from?
Im from serpentis Isle and I love the server, but I dont approve of this behavior at all.
Everyone deserves a fair chance and the reason most people will use the instance matcher is because they are not in a guild to run these instances.
So, how about being a little more patient with players from other servers and show them why we are known for being a great server with great players, rather than dragging our good name down!
Brizzy has always seemed pretty decent, so I'm going to chalk it up to poor wording for the time being = )
Hopefully that rule will change and people from other servers will start being viewed as humans who deserve the same respect/chance as people on SI, even if they can't vote.
