We've finally trained our guild's main tank into chain pulling and it makes such a difference.Poster #1 says: "I play this game for fun, not to win a race.". Well, I play this game for fun too, and I have a lot more fun when I'm playing than when I'm waiting.IMO it's not the slacker DPS's "fault" that they're alt-tabbed, it's the tank/raidleader's "fault" for not pushing the pace to the point where the DPS feels like they can't be alt-tabbed. Obviously everyone has to pull their weight, but chain-pulling is self-reinforcing: less downtime = more attention = less downtime. In fact, we've found that an early trash wipe is quite good to get us nice and awake. You don't have to rush, you just have to not stop when it's not necessary.Now, that's not to say that only the way I raid is correct. If you find yourself in a guild where everyone would rather spend four hours getting to curator with 10% of their attention on the game, instead of three hours clearing the instance with 100% of their attention on the game, that's ok. Not everyone has the same goals, and not everyone likes to play in the same way.However, I don't have enough time to play this game. I'd really prefer that the time I *did* have was spent *not* standing around waiting on someone coming back from the loo.
