The problem with reputation is it can so easily go bad for reasons which are misunderstood.I have come to realise with the new cross-realm instances that some realms Need roll for Frozen Orbs while my own realm Greeds for them. This created the appearance that those players from other realms are ninjas and a number of threads went up to this effect on the realm forums. Although those realms were aware of the issue, it still has a negative effect on that persons rep to be called a ninja.

I wonder if selecting need is something that's a norm on other servers, or if people just figure they'll pick need to get a higher chance to win the orb, knowing that you'll probably never see them again.It's like the old axiom: anonymity+audience=fuckwit. The new cross-realm LFG provides even MORE anonymity than normal.

Easy solution... wait to see what others roll (need or greed) and do the same?or all need and no one can ninja an item that everybody uses... simple as that

@rtm_mike, there are indeed some servers where it's accepted that you roll Need on Frozen Orbs.I play on Stormreaver-US. My guild transferred there a few months ago, and it was initially jarring because we were used to Greeding Frozen Orbs, but this server is evidently one of the ones where Needing them is the norm. It's definitely been a source of confusion in PuG heroics since the patch came out.
