I am not a dedicated raider, but I love raiding. Since I can never commit to the raiding schedules that guilds require of their raiders, I am in a constant state of pugging. When I'm not actively in a pug, I am scanning the trade channel looking for one that will have all the qualities required to be successful- gear, experience, patience, and maybe a little bit of luck. When I find such a group, I'm ecstatic. But more often than not, I face group after group of impatient, inexperienced, and under geared scrubs who simply want to be carried to the final boss so they can get their [EPIC LOOT] Those groups often end in a way that everyone who has ever pugged is familiar with- people getting frustrated and leaving. But every now and then, there is a group that fails so bad, the fail is almost a win, in and of itself, for being such a unique level of fail.

Those are the groups this blog is about.

I'm too sexy for your vent

Too sexy for your vent, too sexy by far!

That seems to be the mindset of at least half the members of any pug. In a guild run, that nonsense just isn't acceptable- you'll quit your whining, join vent during the raid, and be happy about it. But pugs are different- they generally lack a solid hierachy, and certainly lack any disciplinary actions for members who refuse to conform.

Most of the non-comformists won't even bother giving an excuse. Occasionally, there is a legit reason for not joining vent- sometimes their computer is such a hot mess that it would burst into flame if it had to run wow and vent at the same time.

However, usually it's someone who is overly self richeous and entitled and simply can't be bothered to join vent because it's far too much work. They'll state "it's old content- we don't need vent," then wipe, and promptly start bitching that everyone else is a noob. Some mistakenly believe that their guild vent is more important than the vent of the group that they're with. Others still are watching TV and would hate for their show to be interrupted by somebody screeching for MORE DOTS.
