Not at all.Being the top level of the game I fully agree that people need to be sure of their own skills and also realise this is not just about them, that there are other people on the team who are going to end up with a wasted time investment, frustration, raid locks and huge repair/consumable costs.My PoV was to the author of this post who gives every indication she took members of her own guild into a fight that she should have known was too hard for them, but then rather than admit she was wrong decides to publicly call out the huntard on WoW.comAs others have said, including you, gear checks are a pretty good starting point here, especially as the complaint is NOT about the style or ability of his play but that he was putting out only 1800 DPS and didn't know he could do better. In a guild only situation then you also should have an inkling about the player if not from grouping with him in heroics then from other guildies.Nope, I hold it is Amanda who is the elitist/incompetent one. She even says later in the article "Part of the Guild Master/Raid leaders job is to lead their team into appropriate content. Do a reality check for your team." but she hasn't in this case, and then had the nerve to write a column about it.Go back and read what I wrote with that in mind. This is *not* a PuG 25 man complaint the author is making, this is a complaint about a guildie who got invited to something he couldn't handle and is then called out about it on WoW.com
