I've spent a ton of time on this forum and I've never seen this thread. Ever.
EDIT*** Yep, I just saw it. Was posted 3 hours ago. I was definitely sleeping. My bad.
This is my opinion on this whole thing... You were in a T3 group. You are NOT geared for that... AT ALL. You have 275k sheet dps. What do you think you're trying to accomplish? Being in the middle of battle doesn't mean you're doing the damage for T3. What??? lol.
If your character is doing 350k sheet dps. You're not geared to do whatever difficulty you joined. If it was T3 or T2 you are not geared for that, at all. I'm sorry. You joined a group they noticed that stuff wasn't dieing fast enough, evaluated the situation and realized that person was way under geared.
I do this when I run public matches. I do not care what gear you're in. HOWEVER, if I notice stuff isn't dieing within a reasonable amount of time, something is wrong. It is blatantly obvious to the other players there is an issue when it takes more than 45 seconds to kill a shrine elite someone spawned with nemesis bracers.
In public games, people move fast. If you're joining outside of your gear level, you're holding the others back because you either can't survive or you can't put out required damage. T1 would be fine for someone with 350k sheet damage because I know their actual damage is around 600 - 700k in game. T2 needs at least 600k sheet damage, 900k to 1 mill in game. T3 requires 800-900k sheet damage, 1.2 million in game etc etc.
It's not the fact you can't do the difficulty. It's the fact that you joined a public match instead of getting your friends to do the higher difficulty at a slower pace which you could do better on.
I have 858k sheet damage. I do T2 pub matches and things go great. I try T3 or T4, I notice I need better gear. It's not that I COULDN'T do it and complete it. It's me being reasonable with myself about not wanting to hold the group back.
It's just the difference between, "I'm entitled to do higher difficulty so I'm going to join it and that's just too bad for the group if they don't like it" vs "I know my gear isn't good enough for this difficulty and I know there may be a problem if I join one".
Do the right thing, don't join a public match on higher difficulty with gear you know won't line up with others.
If you want to run Torment, run Torment 1. It's the best place for someone with that sheet damage to be. You'll get set items, the torment only items etc. There's NO reason for someone with rares on to be in T2+. If they are, they are either getting carried to feel entitled to run that difficulty and other players don't feel like carring someone who's dead on the floor wanting revives from getting waxed by white mobs or taking minutes to kill white mobs because their not pulling their weight.
