OP  4/04/13 12:30:21 PM#1

So i was recently playing Tera, and i qued up for a dungeon. Me and a few friends just hit 60 a few days ago, and were checking out the dungeons that we had access to. Once the que finished, and the auto match maker created the party, i stated that it was my first time here, and can someone explain whats going to happen or what to expect?

The tank flies off into a rage saying "Dont que up for a dungeon if you have no idea what to expect!" Now this was very upsetting to me and it made me think about where things have come from, and where they are going. I explained to the guy that i refuse to watch a video before even attempting a dungeon. it ruins everything about it for me. We went back and forth and at the end we were on good terms.

To me its a sad when the mmo community no longer wants to attempt to learn things on their own. They all instantly start looking for videos for people who have done the fight before. What about seeing a boss do a move for the first time and being in AWE. How about getting 1 shotted and learning to never do that again. These things are part of the experience to me. Being told to read a guide first or watch a video before even going into a dungeon is lame imo. Its not just mmo's, but people (im not sure if i can still call them gamers) read guides before even getting their feet wet in almost everything now. League of Legends, Console Games, etc.

Has anyone else had an exerience similar to mine, or feels the same way i do? Or do you think watching videos and reading guides before you even take a stab at it is ok?

I hate harcore rage freaks like that. Alas, they are in just about every MMO. Just have to deal with it.

I dont know when this started, but I feel the mmo community in general has almost vanished. Its rather depressing. People do dungeons and dont talk. People dont help each other anymore. Its really sad :(

The problem is, its old content. Just like spoilers with tv, there is a certain point when they just no longer apply, simialr can be said of any content. If you are new to it, when is it ok for you to unduly inconvience them just because you do not want to spoil it for yourself. This is the sort of situation when you should not have queued up, and instead formed your own group so every knew ahead of time what they were walking into.

If this happened in Tera why are you posting this rant in the WoW forums?


Or maybe MMORPG.com needs a "Good Ol' Days" forum so people can endlessly complain about how MMOs arent as good as they used to be.

Closely related to the subject, I too have noticed in the past years that the focus has moved from people and guilds having their own strats and tactics, unique ways of doing things to there only being "one right way" of dealing with each encounter. And you must know all about the encounters before you even try them, which is quite ridiculous when you think about it.

In WoW this is especially true, and while I don't play it anymore, I'd imagine the new Dungeon Journal hasn't really helped the situation either (the journal, as far as I know, goes through the tactics of each boss fight in-game, so that external strategy reading or making up your own strategy is no longer required).

Buzzkill once had a nice blog post about this mentality of there only being one right way of doing things on an enounter, and I decided to dig it up. See the part under "Spoils and emulation": http://manaflask.com/en/article/1142/raiding-philosophy-raider-evolution-the-conclusion

it's a certain group of gamers in every game.
It's not a genre thingy.

Some people just take things a bit too serious.
Downside is that the developers cater to those players and give those groups 'kick' options to vote ppl out.

depends, if it is a casual pug leveling dungeon, I wouldnt mind whipes....if it were dungeons done by experienced ppl, I would, but I still wouldn't rage or go emo about it...it's just a game.

I know, taking 5 minutes of your precious time is just such a HUGE inconvenience right? Next time when you have a question at your job / school, I sincerely hope you don't inconvenience your fellow workers / classmates by asking questions when you don't understand something.

Your attitude is exactly why most MMOs have absolutely sh*t communities. Here's an idea... if you don't want to deal with new people, why don't YOU form your own group outside the dungeon finder? After all, it's the only way to guarantee that you won't end up playing with the rest of us mere mortals!

It sucks it happened to you. My current incarnation in TERA is that of a lancer, almost 60 too. If I do go for a new instance, as the tank, I try to be prepared by knowing a bit about the instance before going in. I don't expect the rest of the party to (it is what it is).

So once inside, first thing I ask is if there are any first timers. Last time I had someone else who had been there before give tips and such at crucial moments.

All it takes is one ass-hat to ruin the mood of the party and sour what should have been an hour of fun dungeon crawling.

At least you got it sorted out in the end.

It happens in WoW too.  Probably more in its heyday.  But yeah, I hate this kind of crap and it's the reason I ever look up dungeon vids, just to try and make someone else's lives easier.

umm not to be a ass or anythign but why is this thread in the WoW section?

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to

As someone already said, it happens in every game.


You can find this crap in Tera, WoW, GW2, Rift, all MMOs.


Just to varying degrees in each one. Pretty bad in GW2 right now, so why not post this in the GW2 forums instead.


The only time people make a big deal about not knowing fights in casual content in WoW is when your ignorance can wipe the group/raid. ie Garalon in Heart of Fear LFR.

I agree for the most part, but in GW2?  Really?  I've been doing dungeons for months and no one's ever gotten in a tizzy over anything relating to the fights.  The only thing I've seen is that some people want you to be wearing a certain armor type for "speed runs", which is stupid and really turns me off from running dungeons as much.  Otherwise, I've gone into high level dungeons with complete noobs and we found our way through by communicating.  It's a lot different than in say, WoW, where one bad move by the tank or healer can mean certain doom.  I would disagree that it's "pretty bad" or ever will be.

it maybe used to be like that. 2 or 3 years ago.  now the only challening content in WoW is raiding.   (and no people,  LFR does not equal raiding)

I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

I'm not going to sugar coat this so you should know that this is the way things are now.  It shouldn't be a surprise.  It's more of a surprise if this doesn't happen.

Content has become so simple and stale that the only fun left for many people, including myself, is to clear it as efficiently and quickly as possible.

I'd gladly trade coasting through crap content while watching TV for high failure rate and difficult content

That's not the community, and people demanded far more of you in WoW, since the bosses followed more rigid mechanics.  GW2's in-game community is still better than WoW's by far, at least outside of guilds.

Besides, I've been to that site already.  Most of these just want fractal dailies or to run CoF for the $$$.  You can find groups in-game as well.  I just find it weird how people complain there's no community left in MMO's but then complain if there's no easy LFG system (not referring to you here, just rambling).  I go to Lion's Arch and see people looking for groups like I haven't seen since WoW: BC.  I don't know, it's kind of nice, but the only groups formed in GW2 are not formed on Gw2lfg.

And let's be honest here, ONE MMORPG conditioned this kind of general behavior for the majority of people who now play themeparks, and it didn't start with a G.
