Excellent post and article! Ever since Classic WoW and a ZG raid gone bad, I haven't had the courage to join a 5 man run, 10 man run, or even 25 man run...it sounds silly, but really, as the article says, "you're 1/5th of the group's success." It should be all about having fun and enjoying the game, and while we're all in a dungeon with a job to do, it's intimidating to get back into the swing of things. My bad ZG run back in classic WoW was caused when we repeatedly wiped on the panther boss, and I didn't understand the directions given to me, and I died pretty quickly. I got screamed at over vent, demoted to the lowest guild rank, and humiliated on our website and server forums and whatnot...I'm in college, am the manager of my town's beaches, and put up with people far scarier and with more balls than this old guild of mine, so it's funny why I am so afraid to disappoint 4 virtual strangers, but not angry beach go'ers trying to sneak into my beach! All in all, great read, and thanks for the 'pat on the back'...maybe I'll get back into grouping/raiding soon!

What? You stop people going to the beach! What kind of evil-land are you from? /cower
