Thank you, I was starting to wonder if anyone understood why we actually talk in groups anymore.Personally, I hate "Silent Bob" types, and if I'm the leader of have any sway over the leader at all, I kick unresponsive players. It's not just phat lewtz for you, it's a social thing in a multiplayer game. I don't want to regale you with stories of what I put in my toilet this morning, I just want to have a decent time.Cutting off all communication removes the possibility of saying things like, "Nice job picking up that add," or "Good heals," or "Hey man, you might want to turn viper off," or "Pass/roll or Need/Greed?" or even--god forbid--"Sorry, that wipe was my fault, won't happen again.""How do you tell someone that their tanking is so awful you'd rather let the hunter's pet be the main tank? [and so on]"It's not really that hard, Adam. You be open, honest, frank, and mature about it. "Tank, could you please try to pull one group at a time instead of three groups at once? It's really stressing our healer out." The group member in question is bound to blow and wtfnub all over you, but if you keep at it in a calm and friendly manner and simply learn to handle people, the group will see that you're being reasonable and he's not. Offering up a replacement will help as well.Making your solution to potentially hard group conversation the cutoff of all communication whatsoever is a cop-out, and as someone who likes to see what I can solo all the time and hardly likes to pug anything I rarely say this, but you belong in a single-player game.
