No one is kicking and screaming here, so please stop the projection.
What I just realized about your entire argument is that it doesn’t make sense.
If you just accept anyone into your party, then you don’t need to make a lobby. You can just match make. That way, you don’t need to worry about pings and the game potentially implementing a ping to “gatekeep” liabilities from the team.
Nice try. But no.
And you haven’t provided me your server and char name so that my undergeared friends can join you. We will record this session and post it live on youtube for views to see how your raids go.
I don’t matchmake because I cannot guarantee a Glavier and Artillerist, both of which make these 2 legion raids incredibly easy as Glavier has infinite counters and Artillerist just ignores mechanics entirely while dishing out DPS. I do not go in without a Glavier and an Artillerist. This is the only reason I don’t matchmake. If you don’t like that, I don’t care. I play how I want to play, and in doing so have proven that gatekeeping gear and engravings is entirely unnecessary. I’m sure that across my entire time playing I’ve had people with obscene pings, didn’t bother me any, in fact I didn’t even notice because I don’t care if someone dies.
And no, I’m not going to provide you with any information on my character and server, I have no reason to, I play my own game. Your issue is that you believe anyone who disagrees with you has something to prove to you. News flash, I don’t have to prove anything to you. Your opinion of me does not matter to me.
Again kick and scream and attack people all you want, you are not getting what you want.
Yes it is gatekeeping to reserve a slot for 1 Artillerist and 1 Glavier, totally. You are not the first person in the world to be incapable of understanding the difference between apples and oranges. You are also not the first person incapable of understanding that not everyone is a liar who disagrees with you
Well then, is it reasonable to reject a person because their ping is soo high that they consistently fail vykas’s mech and wipe the party? Is that “evil” or “bad” to gatekeep so that you save the other 7 player’s time and resources?
