Ha I never expected to get quoted in this, let alone before the cut, so EVERYONE would read it!To clarify: not only am I a tank, I have a druid tank as my main, a paladin tank as my alt, and an up and coming warrior tank (she's 70). This comment was, in fact, directed to the crazy tanks who think that just because they're the tank, they can say jump and everyone else in the party says "sir, how high, sir?" Because sometimes, I just want a break from the pressure of it all, a break from setting the breakneck pace for the "GOGOGO" dps, and just want to mindlessly heal or DPS. Those are the times that I, invariably, get stuck with an elitist tank and have been many times kicked from said groups not for underperformance...but because I dared speak out against them.I once got booted from a group because I asked him why he was voting to kick another player. His reply was simply "Because I said so." The next thing i saw was a loading screen...Of course, we're not ALL BAD. And it is a job that can make you very bitter, very fast. I hve nothing but respect and sympathy for the decent tanks left out there. But after it's all said and done, I do enjoy it, and I think that's why these whiny tanks annoy me so much... because I now exactly what they're going through, and I know that kind of attitude is wholly uncalled for.
