Supporting Slacking

Gevlon over at Greedy Goblin brought up an interesting point that the LFD function actually encourages slacking.

I know in the pug groups I've been in, there is quite often one person in the group you could do without. Obviously it's not the tank or healer. So there usually is one dps not "doing their part".

But I assume, except for the new ICCs, these are instances meant for characters in blues and a smattering of purples. I can't expect them to always out dps me, now that I'm wearing all epics.

However, I don't necessarily want to carry people through dungeons either. If I was more of a goblin, maybe I'd be quicker to kick them. Instead I check their gear and suggest they gem, or get something crafted, etc.

For once I actually agree more with the goblin way. If DPS knew they had to perform well and not just auto-follow maybe they'd put in some effort. And I'm only talking about the DPS that make me think I'm at the point I could 4-man instances.

I agree. There is a lot of slacking especially by DPS. 500 dps at 80 is auto attack....maybe. I have seen several dps putting up these kinds of numbers. Inexcusable really.
