Everyone will drop a group at one point or another. I don't think they're out to punish people who leave an average of once a week, but rather the people who do it on a regular basis (ie once a day on average). There was a guy in my guild who, in an attempt to get Needle Encrusted Scorpion for his DPS set, ran Forge of Souls once then queued for randoms as a tank until he got placed into Forge of Souls again. If it wasn't the right instance, he dropped group and hopped over to a bank alt until the (at the time) 15 minute debuff wore off and tried again. THAT is exactly the kind of douchebaggery they're trying to prevent. And yeah, I've been in your exact place before. My resto set sucked, but the Enhance set in my bags told the dungeon finder I was geared enough for Heroic HoR and ported me in. You have 2 options. 1) Throw out a quick apology/explanation and leave or 2) give it a shot. Worst case scenario, you wipe and you can ask the group to kick you.

Seriously, screw this terrible reply system. Was supposed to be in response to michael.doucet on page 1

Ironically, judging from the last "Daily Blues" Bornakk may be among those being stung by this. It's a little disheartening when one of the people behind-the-scenes talks about dropping LFD groups because "I'm not here to completely waste my time for people who are super behind in gear and hopefully they understand that". :( One would like to think he'd be interested in refining (if possible) a flaw in the tool that players have been pointing out for months rather than grousing about it.

I have to agree with you, TR. I feel badly saying it, because I like Bornakk. But, when I read his comment about that, I was actually a bit shocked and surprised. I guess it's easy to put the blues on a pedestal, but when it really comes down to it, they're just people like everyone else. I could never bring myself to kick someone for their performance, if I know they're genuinely trying. And, I would never desert a group based on someone doing a poor job, either. I will stick it out, regardless of how long it takes. Because, I know that the person who's not doing so well probably already feels embarrassed and mad with themselves. I would rather lift them up, than bring them down. The only time I'd ever desert a group is if I had to, due to a real life issue or because my internet dies or I get dced.
