So buried further back in the comments a guy claims that this kind of attitude is what makes raiding feel like work, and how we are all d-bags for caring about the performance of a raider instead of just having fun.Here is what i said to him about this topic.""Not to seem like a d-bag, but it sounds like you might have been "that guy" once (maybe you still are, maybe not).So let me explain why people care about performance.Would you like to spend HOURS (literally) trying to have fun and kill boss's, only to have one member of a raid ruin it for the rest of the players?Now (for my case) extend that effort out over the course of 2 years, and extend the size to 25 mans, and think about black temple. Where one freaking guy who cant get his head around the game makes 24 other people spend gold on repairs.Gold they WOULDNT have to go farm where it not for "that guy".Its not about being mean or Judgemental, its about not wanting to have "that guy" in the raid and have him ruini the fun for everyone else in the raid/guild.My guild (the one i run), has a casual side to it.If you ARE "that guy" but you are still a very nice person, you can be on the casual side, and once content is on farm we will drag you through it.You will get to hang around and raid occasionally, we are not going to expunge you from the guild.But we are NOT going to punish the dedicated skilled high attendance people just to see if "that guy" will learn this run, or this run, or this run. etc....""
