So, he's fury now. I've been running some raids, but I've lost rolls on every 2h weapon drops to dirty ret pallies who roll on warrior gears.
Did you guys see the blue note on Grand Arbiter Rufino Fizzlebang, the new gnome NPC coming in 3.3?
Grand Arbiter Rufino Fizzlebang is a level 80 NPC located at the mezzanine level of the Violet Citadel. As his title suggests, Rufino is an advanced AI arbiturartion mechanism we're implementing to improve the gaming experience of smart, metro-sexual, and sophisticated players. You may report any act of stupidity observed in instance runs or trade chats to Rufino, who will assess the merits of your complaints and punish the reported stupid accordingly.
I logged on to PTR to check out the new NPC and test out the cross-server LFG. I found a group pretty quick and we were off to H UK.
When we were at the first boss, the mage in our group started explaining the fight.
"He's really easy. Just dps and remember that 4x7=27."
"Uhm, no, 4x7=28," I corrected him.
"/sigh... trust me, 4x7=27, k? I've done this hundreds of times. Let's pull."
"No, hold up. You're gonna wipe us. 4x7=28!"
"Dude, it's 27. Can we go?"
"Dude, I just refereced the Elitist Jerk's arithmetics thread and used the product function in Excel to verify that 4x7=28."
"You're an idiot."
"You're the idiot. I'm reporting you to the Grand Arbiter."
"Well, I'm counter-reporting you. You and me. To Rufino. Right Now."
After hearing our cases and engaging in a brief contemplation, Rufino presented his verdict... I was so giddy thinking about how badly this scrub was gonna get owned.
"You may go mage; your charges are cleared," the arbiter spoke. "Jong, I hate to inform you that your account will be suspended for three days on the grounds of your stupidity."
"WTF? Rufino, you got it mixed up. That guy is the idiot."
"No, I'm pretty sure you're the idiot. You're the biggest idiot I've seen all day."
"You're arguing with a guy who insists that 4x7=27."
My guild has strict mandates against getting into altercations in trade chat, pug runs, or forums. Irrespective of who's at fault, getting into pissing match with anyone is grounds for gkick.
Adhering to the policy has given me a piece of mind.
The other day, I ran toc daily on my warrior. The group consisted of four guildies + me. This one guy told me I was a fucking idiot for something I'm absolutely positive wasn't my fault.
"My bad I won't let it happen again." That's all I said, we moved on, and I got my quest item.
The way I see it, if you look at my guild tag and still say shit like that to me on THIS server, you obviously have no clue. There's no reason for me to argue that 4x7=28.
