*sigh* PvPers in battleground chat griping about how much we all suck.Just, dammit, I want us to try my best and win, yes, of course, everyone likes winning, but if we screw up and lose the BG, we still get honour! Just not as much! So all we have to play a few extra battles to save up for that trinket or whatever, no biggie, right? But gawd, the cursing and the whining and the insults and the belittling.... And we never lose because the other team is GOOD, it's always that we suck. I enjoy PvP gameplay well enough, but the unrelenting negativity gets me down too much to do it often. I /ignore liberally, and I've consider leaving BG chat altogether, but I worry I might miss important info about where to go and what needs doing (because I really -do- want to do well and win). I remember the first, last, and only time I saw a friendly, upbeat, laid-back, encouraging raid leader in Tol Barad. My god, I was like "I WANT TO BOTTLE YOU AND CARRY YOU WITH ME ALWAYS."

Ah, this is a tough one. Who deserves more hate: the guy who complains how bad our team is before the battle begins (and of course, through the entire thing, and can't get off it even if we win: "Wow, I can't believe you idiots actually won this, you all suck so bad.")... or or the guy who activates Bloodlust or Heroism before the gates open?

yeah, this. I like playing BG's as much as the next guy, but it really grits my nerves that instead of rallying people to do better, the best players (decked in heirloom gear or w/e) just sit there crying about how they're stuck with a terrible team.
