I am lucky enough to have never had this issue. But I usually play in the early morning, when it seems all the bad players are in bed. There is one thing I don't understand. After several weeks of the new dungeon finder being available, I think everyone would notice that if they sign up for dps and tank/heal, chances are about 99.9% that they will get the tank/heal job. There have been many, many times where the tank or healer has to switch spec and gear because he/she was expecting to DPS. If you really want to DPS then why not just sign up for it? Queueing as tank/dps won't get you in a group as dps any faster. Has anyone signed up for multiple roles and actually got picked to DPS?

I haven't had it happen at 80, but while levelling my holy priest often gets to lolsmite dps.

I'd say maybe once every two or three days, my chicken/tree gets in as dps when I check dps/heals, especially if someone in the first queue afks out of the ready check.

All the bad players are in bed at early morning? Not quite.I remember running HoL once during 3.2, trying to get it done before the instance locks expired. The two DPS besides me were mostly in blues and did less damage than the tank, and the tank was a Leeroy. We wiped once on Ionar, then twice on Loken, then the instance lock expired and the group disbanded.

Yeah, I know there are bad players playing at all times of the day. Just seems like a lot less when I usually play (between 5 and 8 am eastern).In addition to my first post:I have a DK alt. When I want to DPS, I check DPS only; when I want to tank, I check tank only. I think these people that are queueing as tank/DPS and showing up in DPS gear expecting to DPS (and in Rossi's situation, not changing or responding) are just looking for the short queue time.
