On my pally tank, I got in a heroic Halls of Origination, which I hate anyway, because you always end up fighting about skipping the extra bosses or not, but I decided I'd go ahead and do it. 3 of the group members are in a guild, and then there's me, and a pug hunter. The healer starts off the run saying, "Hunter, you're healing, right?" I give a lol, thinking he's joking, ask if they're ready, and pull the first group. The healer starts dpsing, doesn't toss out a single heal, and they don't target my target, so everyone's dying off. I use LoH, thinking the healer will, ya know, heal. Nope. Everyone else dies, I run out, and I ask the healer why he didn't heal. He says that the Hunter was supposed to be healing. While I'm half-heartedly arguing with him, one of his dps friends pulls the mobs again, and again we die. They proceed to try to vote kick the Hunter "because he's not healing". *sigh*

I've had experiences with Guildies who decide to run dungeons and just 'troll' people for fun. It's disgusting.I was in Shattered Halls once and had this Paladin Tank who was wearing everything from Cloth and Mail to Spirit Gear and an Agility sword! He was in with a dps guildie, and kept pulling massive groups then losing all aggro. Needing on everything he could even if it wasn't good for him and spent the entire time arguing with me, the healer and the other dps about idiotic things, like stats and claiming as a druid I should be wearing cloth because his main is a druid and he knows.The next day I checked his character on the armory, he was fully clad in the appropriate gear and stats now and I realised he was just dicking with us the entire time.I don't know what's more disgusting, players and guilds who act like this, or the fact Blizzard let's them and even punishes us when we try to name and shame these people!

I definitely believe that's what was going on. I've had it happen to a lesser extent before, but that was the worst one. I've also had it happen, typically with a tank, where they want to get vote kicked so they don't have to wait for a debuff for leaving a dungeon they don't like.

Well since you're a pally tank, if you noticed they're trolling, you can get your revenge a little bit by:1. Pull, bubble, bring them near the group2. Leave groupYes you'd lose out the queue time of 10 seconds that way, but you'll teach them a lesson
