Today's Warcraft is a complete turn around. I hate healing. Heck I hate random groups in general, merely for the reason that everyone is so incredibly hostile. I'm tired of smashing through dungeon after dungeon with players who do nothing but bicker, point blame, trash talk or act like they can solo everything all the time - and the rest of the players in the group are just a minor setback to them. Four out of five times I tell my random groups to stop, then leave and take the 30 minute dungeon abandonment debuff. I don't want or need to deal with the hate that spews from everyone, even if it's only for a 20 minute dungeon.
I know there are plenty of things I can do to get around this issue. Number one I usually attempt is to completely ignore party chat. I can also run with only my guild, or, like normal - just deal with it. It saddens me that it's coming down to the point where it's no longer a team of people vs. the game content. It's now a hostile group of people vs. one another, just in a dungeon setting. I see more people focused on tearing one another down than tearing through the game's challenge. It really does make me question whether I want to continue investing myself in WoW anymore. I don't care about gear, or mounts, raiding or PvP if everyone I meet is going to do nothing but bring misery to the table with their sour attitudes.
I find it incredibly ironic that the MoP theme is the Sha and how hatred manifests itself and out of all the expansions - I'm seeing the serious trend of hatred. In the past two weeks I have only run with one party while tanking on my pally where the players didn't have an attitude problem with one another. In two weeks time - I've probably done 40 dungeons. One in forty is a pretty sad number for the track record.
So. What do other players in the general community find is their experience? I know that complaining about it isn't going to change it. However I am curious to know if it's something that affects anyone else's playing style/habits, or make them consider quitting the game?
