Kick-Voting still rampant in WoW?

I haven't been kicked or witness a kick other than for a long-term dc since MoP dropped.


Honestly this is my experience in MoP as well; people are generally just rushing that nobody cares as long as you are not doing something outright stupid.

True and sad, since Al'Akir used to be a really good realm when it first came live.

Rarely see it to be honest. Think the only time I've seen it in recent times was a Hunter doing about 10k dps at level 90. Reason to kick was "Al'Akir idiot". Vote passed pretty much immediately. Nobody likes Al'akir-EU.


You can votekick based on server? I am so doing that whenever Aman'Thul (US/Oceanic) comes up.

I haven't seen any LFD vote-kicks since Pandaria dropped, and the only LFR vote kicks were for people being complete idiots (like tanks not knowing boss mechanics that wipe us) or for people who were AFK for an extended period of time.

The only kick I've seen this expansion so far is one I started and it was because the person dced.

It's really bad in LFR. A single wipe and they'll look for any excuse to use it. In dungeons not so much.

If you wear blue/green gear in dungeons, you WILL be kicked.

I pretty much never votekick people unless they disconnect or go AFK. I mostly heal, so even if people are terrible I can still sort of carry the group.

The other day I did BRM on the monk healer I'm leveling. The tank was pretty bad and used consecrate on the final boss. I tried to taunt the adds (and other DPS tried to peel them), but with him hammer/consecrating we couldn't get them off so he died and we wiped (in retrospect I should have just HoP'd him or something). Then he tried to votekick me according to my friend I was in Vent with. My friend obviously voted no, and another DPS voted no and said "heals is fine." Faith in humanity restored!

On the other hand about a week or two before MoP dropped I was leveling a hunter on a realm for which I had no heirlooms. I was in the upper 30's and rolled on an agility mail helm. I was told to "give mail to the tank" who had the heirloom helm. I linked the armor skill from my skill page in chat. They said "you're not level 40." Then I was votekicked essentially for rolling on agility mail as a hunter. I guess people STILL hate hunters.

I've seen an insane ammount of kicks myself. My friend was doing his first heroic, tank in raid gear pulled all trash before first boss and my friend only did 20 or 30k aoe dps, so they kicked him. The first week of mop i must of been kicked from every 2nd or 3rd heroic because tank or healer were plate too and my dk was needing on dps gear, never mind I was doing top dps by 5 - 6% they wanted that damn OS gear lol

Soooo

BRM isn't a thing, unless you mean BRD, and the fact that the tank was doing his job and you were too busy trying to taunt off of him instead of heal him leads me to believe the kick was justified.

Consecrate is a threat generating ability and part of a tank's rotation for keeping AoE threat.
