If I'm in a premade and any pugs that slip through aren't following directions, they get marked as AFK. If they can't read and follow simple directions, they're as good as AFK to me.

You, sir, are a douche.
Now if only there was a way to report douchebaggery at the comments...

@George: There is; it's called down-voting.

You run 40 man premades? I doubt it. Who died and made you king of Alterac Valley? As long as someone is doing something, he is contributing. Reporting him AFK because he is not doing what you "order" is ridiculous.

This is the reason I stopped running xrealm premades. The first few times we all managed to get in as a group but then the next few matches there were some pugs who made it in. The leader of the premade instructed everyone to immediately report the pugs as AFK so the rest of our group could get in. This was the last time I ran with them and I agree, this was douchebaggery at its worst.

Oh yea, I remember you.You're that guy that spams chat with how you're the only on that knows what the hell is going on and everyone else sucks.Hey Blizz, what we need is a vote-kick abusive players option.

Agreed my man, last thing a premade needs are people not following instructions.

You are abusing a game mechanic and should be properly punished for it.

Wow...control issues much?

I nominate cheese rations for a douche award... seconds?

@Cheese RationsIt is people like you that ruin the BG experience. It seems like the ones that run around, complain and tell everyone else what to do, are doing the least. Sure, AFK ers in the battle grounds are bad, but D-bags are worse.

Though I've never ever done it, I've always wanted to report people like *you* AFK. You know who you are. The person who stands in the battleground ordering everyone around while doing absolutely nothing yourself and QQing the whole fight about how everyone sucks. Usually inserting those complaints with a bunch of swear words.I will gladly listen to someone in a battleground if I think they have actual knowledge and experience to back up what they're saying, and they're polite. I will not listen to people who simply think they're king of the battleground and get off on ordering everyone around. Just because you're in a premade doesn't mean you have the run of the entire BG. Save that elitist attitude for the rated battlegrounds in Cataclysm.

I used to really hate people like Cheese Rations, then I discovered that you can ignore people from other realms, it just won't last once the bg is over.

I've only done Wintergrasp because it's so chaotic it's easy to figure out where you should be, and just start wailing away. All these other BGs scare me off because I know there's people like this waiting to just tell me how much I suck, and my time is too important to even want to subject myself to the possibility that I might run into the Cheese Douche mentality.I've often thought of starting a guild of people who've never done BGs, but have always wanted to try. If Blizzard put in a kick vote option at least then we could toss all the idiots and just enjoy another aspect of this great game.

Agree with others who say that it would be nice if Blizzard implemented a way to get rid of players who spend their entire time bitching in BG's about how other people suck. Also, if you are making your premade via a mod and not because you are actually in a group, then QQ more. You are the one who is not playing the game as intended. If premades would actually que as honest premades and not abuse that mod I won't mention, then it wouldn't take a gazillion years to get into a premade vs premade match. Oh right, you're probably using the mod because you suck at PVP and can't handle fair competition.

You remind me of that one WoW comic, I think it's on the main site even, with the guy yelling instructions and insults at everyone else there...and when he gets ganked, his own side cheers for and celebrates the ganker.I'd cheer for whoever ganked you.

While Cheese Rations may indeed be a douche, let us remember one thing. Cheese can mark you AFK until the cows come home for whatever reason he sees fit, douchebaggery or no.His marking you AFK doesn't mean JACK ALL unless you are actually AFK. If he marks you AFK for not Rushing RH with him "LAWLS alterac blitz, alterac blitz! cmon guyz, alterac blitz" then who cares? You are probably fighting Galv or getting IBT. You aren't going to get kicked. Remember the golden rule of the internet.Don't feed the trolls. Getting mad at him for marking you AFK only makes him want to do it that much more. Getting marked AFK isn't the scarlett letter. You and Pearl don't have to go live in the woods. Just relax, do what you are supposed to do, and liberally use your ignore list for the children.
