I gave up running dungeons of any sort because of all of this nonsensical behavior. Tanks blame DPS, DPS blames Tanks, Healers gripe at both, all because:1. Different people have played the game for different amounts of time, often switching roles to find what they like to do and either feel proficient at, or what they would like to improve their performance on. This means that not everyone is equally capable at their given role.2. Different people have different degrees of investment in their gameplay. Some prefer to meticulously calculate every possible outcome to every possible scenario that could be encountered and match spell and ability cooldowns to kill orders in specific dungeons, and some people just like to go in, burn down a target by spamming one spell over and over again. This means that not everyone plays the game in the same way.3. Everyone thinks that the game either revolves around their playstyle, or it should. This means that everyone has an opinion about how the game should be played, and in their own mind they are not only correct, they are then obliged to tell other people how they should be playing their game. This behavior is only exacerbated in the PUG system, since the matching system provides and guarantees anonymity. As far as I'm concerned, when I hit level cap with my toons (and I have several) that means I win WoW and can go PVP. At least I know in advance I'll be dealing with juveniles who measure their self esteem in E-peen there, and can reduce my expectations about dealing with other human beings accordingly.
