This is in A3 Inferno. Enough said

I'll be honest, I jumped in A3 inferno with 13k DPS but I didn't do public games until I brought it up higher. The lack of respect for 3 other players is just simply amazing when people jump into public games with 8k dps.

I didn't think I would lol at your pics, but I lol'd at your pics.

The first one is AWESOME. Must be all based on self-found gear, after all they balanced the drops without the AH in mind, and the first time the devs beat act 1 inferno they had a 400-something dps weapon, ain't that right?

The WD could be using a thorns build. One of his passives gives 100% thorn damage to pets.

Really? What an imba skill! The other skills (and classes) need to be immediately nerfed until they're all as useless as this one. Jay only had 2 hrs for his reddit AMAA because he's busy working on exactly this sort of thing.

Oh, I'm sorry, did I say nerf? I mean bugfix. Bugfix. Fixing a bug. Not a nerf.

P.S. not a nerf

How do you get that far anyway with such a low dps? I cant even get past a few A2 Elites with 35k dps, they just hitch a ride along I guess.

While playing A1 Inferno I do not revive the players that die in 1 hit from any mob.
back to Hell dogs! (pun intended)

Dat 8k shield baba!

Seriously though, its like getting items - just reroll your pub game and you'll be fine. Input lilmit is really annoying if you keep rolling sub 20k dps A3ers though or MF leechers.

Really it's not as bad as people think, I've met some legit players through pubs. Solo gets boring and your friends aren't always on ready to go when you want to go. If they are, congrats you have over 100 friends apparently.

On a side note if I don't see a barb or monk I'll usually just leave since the others are really bad with group buffs and only think about their own e-peening dps which nothing really impresses me anymore, I've seen it all. So save your e-flexing for more group efficiency..thanks.

Important P.S. -

None of this matters because Blizzard is killing public games next patch anyway. No one wants to play on 0 monster power, pointless.

RIP Pub games, from the glory days for 20k (or after count viewing change in June 2.5k not full) to likely below 50 avaliable after patch drops.

I tanked for 2 hrs in A3 Keep PUG Inferno game a couple hours ago, with no sleep with my Monk, didn't die a single time.

YMWV, low DPS, but very high resists/avoidance/blocking and sure some skill on my part, perhaps.

Using an Az... Sword, highly recommended, one with a high chance to Freeze... shop well, I got a good one for less than 500k, and some other good legendaries, none at crazy prices.

I've had pretty good luck with public games, actually. But yeah, sometimes the people you run across have to be seen to be believed. I've encountered way too many sub-10K dps players in Act 3 Inferno. Usually you can boot them without any trouble, but there have been times when I've proposed to vote kick a leecher, specifically citing his 8K dps as the reason for kicking, only to see the measure fail to pass. WTF? Apparently the rest of the group was more than happy to drag a worthless fourth wheel through an entire act. Head-scratching moments like that are part of the charm of public games, I guess.

Thankfully you can usually tell how good a group will be within a minute of joining, and just restart if prospects look bleak.

I had a 40kdps barb the other day in a public game think he as hott stuff and would WW through everything and leave the group behind then struggle to kill the elites. I just simply would stand there and let him struggle. Seriously, if your in a group game why do you take off?

OP, all i see in your pics is legit chars that play the game without abusing AH and RMAH. leave them alone because they are the most honest and legit players we got in this sad excuse for a game

Ran into one of those yesterday. He plowed through the map, leaving half the white mobs behind for the rest of the group to mop up. Then we'd catch up to him at the next elite pack. No idea why people play co-op if if they're not interested in, you know, actually playing cooperatively. Just d-bags, I guess.

I proposed a vote kick, and naturally it failed to pass. Another player actually whispered me to ask why I took issue with the way the other guy was playing. He honestly couldn't understand it, evidently happy to tag along after him, picking up the scraps. Unreal.

Ok it might be all looted and nothing bought, but how the hell do they get that far? With that gear you cant even get past the Butcher in a 100 years. They are legit but they leech on other players for the dps...

I don't care about low dps if they are playing the game, I do have a problem when someone has 700 hrs on their account and is wearing blue MF gear in a pub game, die and wait until the team beats an elite and revives to collect the loot.

so true rolling a pub game is like flipping a coin, sometimes u get ppl who suck and sometimes u dont.
I dont care if someone has low dps cause their gear sucks, they probably have no gold ive been there. but if youre wearing mf gear, ure getting kicked or im bouncin

i got passed butcher inferno with around 10k or less DPS and farmed him and all of act 1 till i got around 33k+ DPS. not impossible unless ur a total noob.

act 1 inferno is a joke. it isnt untill act 2 that u realize u actually need to upgrade ur gear.
