LOL, this guy must have a terrible day job. Some of this is pretty funny though...

I think he's a tad serious about raiding, but at the same time, he isn't wasting anybodies time. Having led numerous BWL and Naxxramas raid groups, I can entirely understand where he's coming from.

Lol, thats how I should educate my raid groups xD

"What? You didn't want to draw aggro on the pull? You're a tank. Well I'm sure you'll be happy with your raid job when you're living in a VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!"

Sounds like someone could use a hug.

To me, if you take raiding and/or this game that seriously...get a life. One of his comments is he's been raiding for 8 years...wow. That's not something to cheer about dude. "RAWR!!1! I R L33T RAIDR ME NO ALL RAIDZ IN WOW U RESPEK MY AUTHORITAH!!1!!111."

But he did say some funny shit. I'll give him that. :)

Everquest. A lot of the hardcore raiders in WoW transitioned from Everquest

Oh! Evercrack!
Now all the "van by the river" comments are COMPLETELY justified. :)

Lol, I can see what you mean about taking it seriously, this guy is a bit intense.

As I've said before though, he's not wasting anybodies time. It doesn't apply so much anymore, but back when 40 man raids were the thing, you did have to drop 4 or 5 hours a night if you wanted to progress, and one simple mess up (like a miss pull or a missed heal) can screw the whole raid. Wiping is expensive and time consuming. What a lot of people don't seem to get is that yes, WoW is a game, but its a game you play with other people, so when you agree to join this 40 man effort, its a COMMITMENT to other people, and if you don't take it at least a little seriously, you're wasting your own time AND their time. Simple courtesy, really.

But Sebudai is like the god of super-hardcore serious raider xD

I'd also like to mention there is a REASON he's freaking out xD
Can you imagine how BAD these people must be?

Oh I can imagine how bad they are. I've never been in a 40 man raid but in the 10 and even 5 man raids I've experienced my share of stupid people. Doing a 40 man raid is like taking all that pain and multiplying it by 10. Screw that. If I wanted to torture myself I could find better ways than WoW 40 man raids.

But, like I said, he said some funny shit. For that he gets cool points.

Lol, 40 man raids take a lot of patience unless you've been raiding with the same guys for ages. I was lucky enough that when I was doing it, I knew the people I was doing it with and they were pretty experienced too (which made Naxx FAR less painful). I actually think the new raids are FAR more stressful though. Karazhan was just a lesson in pain for me ("What do you MEAN you've never run a heroic?" talking to one of our DPS about why I was beating him on the damage charts as the main tank), and Gruul the Dragonslayer is like slamming your head into a brick wall over and over and over.

I'll post some of my moments later x3
