Whenever somebody tells me to "gogogo" or something similar, I reply with a "brb" - wait about 10-15 seconds, then ask if everybody is ready. I've also flat out typed that I don't put up with that bs. I used to listen when people say "gogogo" but it gets old.I don't tell dps what to do unless they are asking for guidance. I want the same courtesy, but sadly, I don't expect it. Yesterday, I was tanking a pug heroic in grim batol. It was myself and 4 randoms who were all in the same guild. They all had the "gogogo" attitude, but I took my sweet time, and they put up with it. Then we get to that one boss who has the fire add who explodes upon touching its target. Turns out the dps was so bad that they couldn't kill/cc the add quick enough, and to top it off, they ignored the fire ring which indicates where the add would spawn. Instead of blaming them after we wipe, I said "What could we have done better?" The healer throws up the recount and not one person was over 6k.

On the contrary, I had an minimally geared group on a heroic and they were great to play with despite the low dps. Nobody was quick to rush me. They were patient. For one, they knew the mechanics of threat generation allowing me to get a good amount before going all out. For two, they were easily coachable with regards to cc. The instance was a breeze even though it took a long time to get through because of the low dps. One of the most enjoyable pugs I've ever tanked for.
