This type of behavior is what has killed So many MMO's and the stifled the urge to raid or do instances in WoW.Thanks for saying what I have been thinking for a long time... it used to be if the instance/raid was doing fine, bosses dying, mobs going down, that the dps/healing meters didn't matter, in fact it was considered obsessive by some to bother looking, but now, there is always someone being attacked for poor output, either in party/raid chat or privately.Guilds that are on the cutting edge have the right to demand players be prepared, geared and produce top numbers... but carrying the behavior to a 5 man or 10 man pug is wrong and only makes the players involved look like... elitists.Let me add one more disturbing trend... the dps crew that is celebrating, yelling in vent how happy they are, linking numbers in chat... when they top the dps list, when they don't it's like a funeral, no talk, no numbers, no happy face.These same players are first to attack others, use them as a scape-goat if the raid fails and belittle others who they feel are competition for topping the dps list. And let me add, this type of person knows all, has the answer to every question (wrong or right), and if you say the sky is blue, they will be first to proclaim it's orange where they are!
