lol. I only know what DPS and Tanks are from League of Legends. Even on that, people go apeshit if you're doing something fun. These guys usually take things too seriously and virtually take the fun out of the game.

I worked with a girl one time years ago that was an absolute knockout. I mean this woman was a 10+ easy. We went to lunch a few times and had a couple of casual dinners together after work but it never turned into anything because even though she had a young son, she turned really Christian and was not gonna have sex until she was married again, which was an obvious dealbreaker for me. Anyhow, this chick was so obsessed with Warcraft that she would bring her laptop in and play on our company wireless network. She would literally have her laptop open next to her work monitor, and play that poo all day. It was simultaneously the weirdest, and downright sexiest thing I've ever seen in my life.

Here's a sample behavior study of the 20% of the players I mentioned that makes Internet gaming (especially one as micro-coordinated as WoW can be), hard to handle.

Haha, well, half those videos are fake.

The game is different now though. They made it super casual. Maybe I'm just lucky though, the guys I play with are all adults with fulltime jobs and families, or in college,etc. No one really freaks out like that haha.

I've never played Wow or anything like that, but some people got really pissed off in Halo: Reach when i played that. One guy sent me an awful message about how i wasn't a man and a pussy because i was using amour lock too much?

I played BF2 a few months ago when i was just looking for a game to play around with. I pretty much just tried to stay out of the way out of fear of annoying the hardcore people with my noobishness.

Nerd rage is sad, it's a game. It should be fun even when you lose. Disappointing but not raging.

Here's the thing...if you let me know you're a nerd and will rage over poo like this, I will seriously fug your game up. Got invited to another dungeon instance today and this nerd got super pissed at this other guy who apparently wasn't healing fast enough. We all died and this person (not the same one as the other day btw) was rolling on the insults. So what I did was when we went in again, I immediately attacked a mob and ran over to him. We both died super quick. I wasn't even fighting though, I was just hopping around this dude's character like a madman. LOL. Good times.

The "Random Dungeon Finder" should be renamed the "Random Asshat Finder".

Since our little group is still leveling up our alternate characters, me and one of the other people who have max-level characters tried our hand at random groups. I think I ran 10 or so dungeons, and out of those, 3 of them ended in pissing bitch fests by angry nerds.

After the last one, I told my buddy "Dude, you can cancel random queues from here out. We will just need to get our little group leveled up." My enjoyment of the game immediately improved.

Besides, there is SO much you can do besides dungeons in WoW at max level. Trade Skills, Gold making, Secondary skills, the Argent Tournament (which yields some pretty awesome rewards even in the new expansion), and of course, PVP.

(BTW... is it WoW you're playing stan? I think we've been assuming this, but I don't think you've specified. )
