View Full Version : Ow shit

This is just a post about what happened today in Molten Core.

The short version: I completely messed up because I was too stupid to actually read what was in my chat log and took a purple in Molten Core that was still undecided.

The longer version: At Magmadar, a purple belt of medium value dropped. After the usual confusion, it was asked who's interested in it. I was one of a few who were interested. After some further further scrolling through the chat window - not really made better by some tell private tells, I somehow read the item was assigned to me. Most people were leaving Magmadar so I took it, fully convinced I should.

That conviction lasted only for a very short time until the tells came in asking if I'm drunk? Ninjaing some drop in Molten Core! What kind of idiot does that - either go for the good stuff or let it be!

Well, I have to agree with all those friendly people pointing out the error of my ways and the proper etiquette for these kind of situations, and to my defense I don't have a lot to say. I can't event blame being drunk, which would have made things easier to bear. I was simply too stupid to read properly my chat window. Back in elementary school I was tought that words are written next to each other on a line and skipping lines is cheating, so I have no idea how I came to read across the chat window and see things that weren't there.

So before slinking away like a drowned poodle, I wanted to ask if there's any possible way to fix this kind of blunder and get a second chance. It really hurts me, that after coming back from Wow-burnout to a guild with so many reasonable people, to be kicked out on my second day for my own stupidity.

If there's a second chance somewhere, please point me to it and I'd hop in it's direction to find it.

Thank you,

The problem goes beyond ninja looting some piece of crap from MC sir.

The real issue is that during a trial period, we are not looking for people who can OMGWTFPWNZZOR (our age limits tend to filter those out anyway) , but we are looking for people who can pay attention, understand instructions, and follow them.

And no point did anyone explicitly tell you to loot the item, and there was a clear indication from Heph that a few people were interested. If you draw a wrong conclusion from a simple situation like that, then how can we be confident that you will pay attention and understand tricky encounters like Twin emps or Naxx?
