: from the information given, it sounds like you were all around 19k dps (probably a little lower). That means that the minimum amount of time the fight would take is around 10.5 minutes. That's a really long time for a FTA raid to wait for you in the first place. Put yourself in their shoes and imagine waiting that long.
They werent waiting. There was no "line" at that time.... we were about 2-3 mins into the 2nd attempt and boss around 85-87%.
When we started the 2nd attempt...there was no other raid group. Just us.
So i think it rude they barged into an already engaged fight...and take it for themselves.
I didn't say it wasn't rude, just that I can understand why they'd want to reset it, and that it wasn't such a ginormous inconvenience that you are forever wounded. They were likely already grouping up during those few minutes, as FTA raids tend to do before each faction leader, so they were also probably there longer than you realized.
And you were still a little under 2 minutes in based on my handy dandy calculator, which really isn't that long.
Really, I would say the guy who scammed me when I was 14 and stole all the gear off my very first Diablo 2 character was more of a %!**. Still remember his battle.net username. I learned my lesson from that, at least. Never got any sort of compensation, just had to go beg in "free" games to get enough gear to keep playing.
There are definitely worse things than that too. Just be glad that the boss resets on a predictable basis.
