I guess first I should say that I have nothing but respect and admiration for guilds like Vox Radix, Exodus and The Church - guilds that have completed some of the difficult endgame content and persevered through wipe after wipe after theorycrafting after .... who knows what to get to where they are.
I would appreciate it if someone from one of these guilds would post something describing the adversity they faced and the number of wipes they endured to achieve victory IN some of these difficult encounters. I think someone from Vox Radix could tell a long and insightful story about defeating heroic LK. How many wipes did this take?
Encountering some who have the mentailty of - "oh we wiped, I give up, and btw you guys are awful" is discouraging.... I hate I ABSOULTELY FRIGGING HATE PUGGING. Grow a spine, play this game like you have something to accomplish and think of the negatives as a positive - "we wiped, but what did I learn?"
I guess asking for end user consensus on how to react to difficult situations is impossible.
