I completely agree with Lisa on this one. If VT was in fact having vent troubles, the onus lies on him to either fix that problem or be able to do the raid without requiring the use of vent. Don't give me the crap that the guild isn't racing for realm firsts. Whether you're from Paragon or Random guild # 2778, as soon as you step into a raid, your goal is to down bosses. Wiping repeatedly is not fun for anyone involved and if you wanted to spend time with your friends that can be done in other less forgiving settings like heroic dungeons.We also have to remember that we are only hearing one side of the story. A side that is likely biased and is likely to omit any of the details that might explain why 9 other people in the raid did not bother explaining to him. It is more likely that Vent troubles was doing something wrong compared to the 9 other people in the raid being insensitive douchebags. My theory: Vent Troubles is either the unprepared guy (always asks for boss strats, flasks, food) or the entitled guy ("You guys owe me cause I helped you progress in ICC"). Both the unprepared guy and entitled guy usually get ignored when they say anything in gchat or raid chat (boy who cried wolf effect).That being said, the officer could've handled the situation better. Instead of going off on this guy, a simple silent treatment (no more invites to raids) would've worked infinitely better. Both parties were wrong here, and people shouldn't be siding with Vent Troubles just because he is acting like a victim (9 other people who wiped repeatedly were victims too)
