[Skip to end if you want the quick version]
So I joined a behest last night with a full part of 15 people. I said to myself, "This is going to be awesome! We're gonna own this."
And then the chaos ensued.
Even though we were told to /assist the party leader (and i'm not even sure there's an assist macro yet, and if there please do let me know), people began fighting two monsters at once. The monsters died within 5 seconds, making it virtually pointless to try and keep up with everyone else. Regardless of this, I still fought at least one of the two monsters that were claimed. So what's wrong?
Some a-hole in the party decided to call me out about attacking the wrong monster, along with the other half of the party. The other 5 people doing the same thing did not get called out. So here I am, trying to do a behest and actually function by killing stuff instead of standing there and letting them power kill stuff, but I'm being heckled and cussed at by some pretty severe language.
Yes, I understand that if you kill something that doesn't get claimed you don't get SP. Which sucks, and I hope they fix that issue or find a way to make the monster be claimed.
And Yes, I understand that I was in the wrong by not following the same instructions set forth by the party leader that a few others were also not following.
But I REALLY don't like it when I'm the one called out on such an issue.
Long story short, does anyone here ever have problems with crazy power hungry leaders trying to run a behest party, when a 15 person party under the current battle system and target-unfriendly environment makes the whole process utterly ridiculous? It just stuns me to no end that people would puke profanity to such a degree at people that are trying to accomplish the same common goal :-(
