I agree with Lisa, noone wants to type out all that stuff in chat, if your vent isn;t working and it;s causing repeating wipes just respectfully leave instead of being such a handicap.

Also, don;t act like it;s the Raid leader;s fault because he didn;t see your messages and try to lecture him.It would have been a salvageable situation if you didn;t tell him how to lead, you have no right after failing so much yourself. You deserve what you got in the end.

Can't agree with Lisa at all, the fault isn't just not on Vent, it's on everybody else in the raid. 7 times and nobody, not one person, can bother to type something as simple as "stnd bhnd tail"? I can type that while slam casts! If they wiped 7 times, there was clearly plenty time to type a lot more than that. Maybe Vent hadn't seen anything about the strategy, but I can't count the number of times i've been in a pug or even guild run where the RL thinks they know everything and repeatedly try a failing strategy and refuse to listen or try other ways, and That Guy definitely sounds like that kind of guy. "After 7 statements about not being in Vent, isn't it obvious that nobody particularly wants to handhold you by typing strats into raid chat?" What should have been obvious is that Vent is playing with a bunch of unhelpful and uncooperative jerkwads.

Emophia isn't entirely off. While this is a game, there is a system of Officer/Subordinate in play and Mr. Vent was out of line. The subordinate failed to recognize his own faults and make a proper attempt to correct any problems. He then proceeds to tell the raid leader how to do his job. Mr. Vent is the catalyst for the drama not the officer.The conversation would have gone better if Mr. Vent just stated the fact he did his best to communicate his trouble and wasn't given the attention needed to sort it out.Next time try this... "Hey, I tried to communicate my trouble but no one would speak to me or give me a chance to sort it out. I'm sorry for my part in tonight's frustration. I'll sort things out before the next raid and prove myself to be a good raider."In three sentences, you've stated your problem, resolved your own mistakes, and confidently asserted yourself without being offensive.That being said the raid leader that night was in fact lousy. He/She should have approached Mr. Vent to discuss the trouble. If not when Vent asked then after the first couple of wipes.Both sides are at fault but Mr. Vent is "That Guy"
