Late response here and it is mainly due to what I just read that I really wanted to respond. To the people who said that VT is that guy and could be a jerk and all that, why would they bring him along at all? One person said noone probably doesn't like him which is why they didn't say anything. Uh, unless you like wiping on the boss, tell him the strat in raid chat. He could be the biggest jerk in the world, but if that jerk is the ONLY person you have (as evident that they wiped 7 times) TELL HIM in raid chat. We don't even KNOW the circumstances on why VT was brought into the raid. If he just came back and everything and started gearing up, it is up to the RL to ask, "hey how is your gear?" cause that is what mine did cause I took a small break from WoW and just came back recently as he needed people to raid. The officer should have known that VT just came back recently and checked his gear out to really make sure VT is ready. I don't like the fact Lisa stated he "barged in there", he was invited in the run. He didn't beg to get in, it was a spur of the moment run. If the the RL invited VT to go with them, it is HIS fault for not asking the guy who came back if he is geared and know the fights. With that all said, I do agree there is a missing chuck to this story cause you just don't invite a guy on a whim, even guildie depending on the situation. Would you invite a guy who just came back to the game who is in the guild, I wouldn't, I would ask, "hey how is your gear?", "did you read up on any of the strats online?" Now if the RL did indeed ask these things and VT said yes, VT on this end is at fault. The RL like Lisa said has every right to be upset. It is rather disappointing to see people say "VT is this", "VT is that", we don't know the whole story to truly judge him. We just know in this case it was a spur of the moment run and he was invited to go. Maybe his guild didn't want to pug another healer and noone else was on in his guild or VT lied about his gear when asked and got in. If I was in VT's shoes, It would be VERY hard for me to apologize to a guy who was acting like a child when I was trying to be mature. Calling names in public, bringing drama to the guild chat when trying to be private? There is no defending the RL's behavior even if VT was unprepared. He went too far. He brought drama to the guild. He handled the situation poorly. THIS is not officer material. That is not how you want your officers to handle situations. I am pretty shocked at Lisa's response to VT and what I considered a light response to the RL and am more shocked how she didn't address on he should handle the RL obviously immature reactions outside apologizing to him. VT talk to your GL about what happened. If he sides with the officer find a new guild.
