Why is this happening to me? Is it wrong to only want zerker people in my party?
I usually kick people under 4k account points, most necromancers and rangers (unless they have a high account point). This method works really well, and i rarely get bad feedback. I do realize that there are very skilled players under 4k AP, but the whole point of a 'filter' is due to its effectiveness.
When a player clearly shows lack of experience, don't chew them out--just give them the silent boot. Its more respectable than saying 'wow your bad'. I usually only call people out who fail multiple times under specific instruction.
I honestly don't see how it gets any clearer than that and everyone wins so I don't see why anyone would possibly complain. The ones who actually meet the requirements get extra gold in exchange for carrying the extra dead weight through the dungeon and no one has to deal with grub summons. I guess it might be annoying for the guys who get kicked but it's their own fault for not reading/listening anyway and they did get a bunch of free dungeon loot for basically doing nothing. It's not like these are people who would be able to do Arah on their own anyway.
You know why people scream and rail and send PM's that suggest you do anatomically untoward things? Because all of these actions are elitist. 'If you can't do X, get out' 'If you don't have Y gear' get out.' If you are running classes A, B, or C, get out.' You're being elitist for whatever reason, be it efficiency, or fun or frustration - and you are doing it in a public forum. People will call you on it, and even hate on you for it.
I remember playing GW1 after Factions came out. I had just started playing and rolled Assassin. I didn't finish the main plot for more than a year, because if I wasn't playing when 3+ friends were on, I was left pugging, and every mission lobby was full of "LF 2 monks, no sins" "LF 1 more, no sins" "LF 4 more, no assassins." It was frustrating as hell. If you want elitism - don't do it in a pick up group. Pick up groups are just that - whoever you can grab. By booting people who don't meet your requirements, you're telling other players 'You can't do this content.' 'Oh,' but you say - 'they can just get another group and do it with them, I just don't want them in my group.' And when EVERYONE is calling for only zerker gear, no rangers or necros, nobody under 4k points? You've locked them out of content, and they have every right to feel bitter and resentful over that. Feel free to require everyone in your guild to have an L80 [class] with [whatever] gear and the paths memorized, but leave that out of public groups.
All this crap - this requirements for gear and classes and knowing exactly how all the bosses function in a dungeon I've never been to - it sucks the fun out of the game for me. Your elitism is literally killing my fun. It makes me not even want to TRY dungeons. It makes me want to ignore an entire portion of interesting PvE content because of the jackholes I will have to deal with in attempting to get there.
I get that the reverse is frustrating. That scraping together a group full of idiots only to fail repeatedly and waste hours of time is not fun. But letting people join, try, and fail before booting them generates less hatred then excluding them entirely.
