Wow, so this is what hardcore raiding is like? While I guess I could understand the need, I never knew fun had to be taken so seriously IMO.

Reading a five minute strat definately means you need to quit your day job. If you can't READ and PAY ATTENTION, you need more help than playing too much.This post doesn't perpetuate stereotypes at all. I don't even know how you can think that.

If reading a simple strategy to better understand what you're doing in a complicated and/or complex encounter counts as "too much" for you, please don't raid. don't try to raid, don't PUG in a raid, don't join a raiding guild. It's not for you. Further, it's disrespectful of the time and effort everyone else puts into it, if you're not going to do the same. If this is too 'serious', then stick to something else. It's not a lot to ask of anyone at all. It saves a lot more time than trying to baby step you through it when everyone else is ready to go. The game is not simple enough that you can just show up, press 1 1 1 1 1 2 and repeat it over and over and just get some epics. There has to be a little more to it, otherwise it's real boring, real quick and therefore... strategy becomes important. it's not hardcore raiding, it's just raiding in general. That's how it goes.

I was speaking more about the consquinces. To me the seem alittle extreme, but like I said I guess I couldunderstand the need

what do you suggest they do? Hug the people who don't read the strat? Some people seem completely incapable of understanding that in a raid there are OTHER PEOPLE behind the other toons. They've set aside time and made some effort and it's flat out rude to make them wipe because you won't read a bit. So the consequences are fine... it's saying "you don't care enough to read a simple strat, so you don't get to raid with people who do and possibly cause them to wipe."

Chess is a game. It's played for fun...unto a point. Beyond that point lies the vast field of the upper echelon, the ranked. These people play the game because they love it. They still have fun, but they understand the need to study and train. They memorize counter moves for the counter moves. They read up on their opponents. They put forth a massive amount of effort that doesn't even involve them touching a chess piece. By the time they sit down to actually play, spectators are ready to watch a game; the players are ready for something else entirely.
