Level a tank job and see if the ULTIMATE POWER of the instant-queue doesn't go to your head.
This has gotten to my friend and it's been really ******* me off. More so because I decided to hold off on leveling a tank in this game until he's ready to level his alt, WHM. I chose BRD, with support/DPS in mind, because as PLD he wanted to be "the ultimate holy knight". Therefore "I should level DPS and when it is time to level my alt he can level a healer". It's gotten to the point where I'm leveling CNJ up to 12 then PLD to 50, just because of what the instant-queue has done to him.
For instance, he was running Amdapor's Keep the other day until the second boss, and if he didn't receive the drop he wanted then he'd leave the instance and re-queue, totally stranding the party. Later on, when we finally did a Wanderer's Palace run that day, he dropped after the first wipe because the healer couldn't handle a pull of all the mobs to the group before the first boss, stranding ME as well. (Thankfully an awesome PLD came to save the run...I felt so bad for the other members on account of my friend's behavior. He was never like this before!)
A MNK dropped a WP run after not receiving whatever he wanted after the first boss (lol), and his response to my jest --that the MNK pulled a princess move-- was "well at least his role isn't important". Ultimate Holy Knight my ***. Nothing ****** me off more than a princess tank, and here it turns out someone I'm close to has been corrupted into such a tank, by the power of the duty finder instant queue. What happened
to you o' friend of friends!?
I cannot wait until I get my relic for my BRD so I can immediately begin leveling WAR to prevent this kind of douchebaggery. Thank goodness my FC is awesome; it is nice not having to rely on a princess for stuff like capping weekly myth. We still are running dungeons and doing all the primal/relic battles together, but I can't continue to be the victim of behavior like this. Will the same thing happen to me when my WAR becomes level 50? I really hope I can resist the seductive malevolence of the instant queue.
Apologies for the rant; it felt really good writing out all of my frustration. GNU's post inspired me to speak up about this, and the way it has personally affected me. Edited, Dec 5th 2013 4:13pm by fatpolomanjr
