It might have been useful for you to tell us what class you are playing (as opposed to the 2 you aren't...unless I'm misreading here). In general, I'm going to bet that it's not what you say, but how you say it.There's a big difference between:"Hey guys, this is my first run of Ramparts, so if there's anything weird I should know about, please give me a heads-up"and"Never ben hear b4, jus' tell me wut 2 stab k?"I've found it not uncommon for people to ask pretty early "Who's been here before?" or "Is this anybody's first time?" I have yet to be kicked from a group for being a n00b. Usually you can just wait until the boss fight to say "Never been this far, anything special I should know about this fight?" but early pointers on what to CC or who to stand away from and which guys have fear effects or which rooms are particularly dangerous might prevent you from accidentally wiping the party on a trash-pull, something that usually gets you more bad-karma from your teammates than admitting you've never been there before.
