@ Algorithm said..."Second of all: say what you will about people offering things to the team. The truth is that people entering battlegrounds at low levels are being selfish. You want to do what you want to do when you want to do it. A small degree of patience, and you could be 8 levels higher."You're entire post is so full of irony it's hilarious. You're upset because to you, these people who are having fun (and happen to not be playing their character the way YOU think they ought to be played I might add) are basically "taking away YOUR time and YOUR win" and they are the selfish ones?You seem to forget that everyone who pays their subscription fee is entitled to play the game in the fashion that provides them enjoyment, however that may be. If you allow the fact that lower level people do battlegrounds while you are in them destroy your fun, that is entirely your issue.The only time I have an issue in a BG is when someone starts screaming at other people (for example, you suck, you're too low level get out, why did you do action A instead of action B, why DIDN'T you do action A instead of action B, etc.). Usually when this happens either a. we all wish they would shut up or leave as they are being more of a detriment than a benefit, or b. we all cheer the minute they /afk or leave the BG for another one."Since people seem to have an issue with the whole concept of winning and losing in an MMO, let’s look at it as if it were another game. If I joined a Warcraft 3 game, and my team mate was building a smiley face out of farms, I would be upset. Sure, you paid for the game, but you’re ruining my experience. I can’t trade you, I can’t win against moderately competent opponents: I have every right to be upset."The only people who seem to have an issue with "winning and losing" would be people of your type of thinking. To take your example, who do you think is the only person who's experience was ruined. Yours. Because you ruined your own experience. Your teammate was obviously having fun, your opponents were obviously having fun, much more likely having a hearty laugh at the smiley faces. That is what a game is supposed to be, fun. You suck your own fun out the moment winning and losing becomes everything to you.The game world is run by numerous algorithms controlling different aspects of gameplay. I thank the gods of Azeroth that you (and people of your way of thinking) are not one of them.
