These new damned battlegroups

If you didn't see this one coming....poor you.  I am a fan of the dungeon finder, at least when it comes to the ease of getting into lower level dungeons.  The battlegroups expanded in the last patch, taking more servers and throwing them together.

The queue times are varied, and not much different than they used to be, at least not in my group. Granted, I have a lot of patience, so waiting 30 minutes for a group on one of my dps has never bothered me.

What does bother me? The idiot fucking dps and sometimes, the tanks. The DPS love to run in and hit anything that moves.  That wasn't a big issue before the talent change patch. Now DPS run in, hit anything, and cry when they get aggro or die.  You ever try telling one of those kids they are doing it wrong? They get offended, tell you silly things, and either kick you or drop group.  I actually take an immense amount of pleasure at pissing those kids off by telling them the way a real DPS works is by attacking the tank's target.  Apparently, no one knows how to target the tank and hit the "f" key anymore. 

Some of these kids love to rush through things, and wipe and then wonder why. Tanks like to think they can barrel through and never die, even when pulling an entire room of dragons that do knock-backs. Sometimes, it works, assuming the dps is attacking the right target and the healer is on their toes.  Most the time though, in my experience, I end up fading, dropping an earth elemental, or tanking shit with my voidwalker.  In just the last few days, I've had to use my Earth elemental on bosses because no one knows what the shit they are doing.

Any one else have these types of experiences since things have changed back to the more "old school" style of tanking and dpsing?

WWTD? He'd kick you out and then show you how it's done.

Illidan, and a tiny ray of hope.

So BlizzCon.  There's all sorts of videos and press releases, just like every year.  There's also that red shirt guy. Anyway.

Even if it was only some developer muttering his personal feelings, what he said was awesome. He said he likes a good redemption story, and Illidan would be his candidate. Oh yes please. I don't know that Thrall would really care much for this, but he's going to be too busy making little "brown babies" with his lady friend somewhere. (Seriously, they called them brown babies during BlizzCon.)

Speaking of Thrall and doing things, I hope he has a nice vacation while the rest of Azeroth, and the horde, fall to shit. See what kinds of things happen when Thrall leaves?  This should be a lesson to him- You can't take vacations.  I'm going to have to take extra care to not try and punch Garrosh, and end up just punching through my monitor.

OH, after like, a year of waiting....we got our Thrall figure from DC.  Hooray! Now he stands tall on top of the highest point of the computer desk.  I'll take a picture some time.
