New Series: Battle Ground Jerks

We’ve all been there, its 600 points to the Horde’s 1500 in Eye of the Storm. Most of the team is more concerned with running the flag and farming kills in the middle than capturing the bases and we are going to loose because of it. There’s one person who has been shouting out in-comings the whole time and trying to make the other 14 people focus on winning the game. Then, something inside them breaks. The BG chat is filled with expletives and racial slurs directed in every direction to who ever will read it. Other people get upset and all out war of words is being waged in the chat while the Horde takes an easy win.

Or maybe its Arathi Basin and we just can’t keep that 3rd base for very long and someone explodes about how bad the rest of us are. How we should all just quit the game right now because we are (insert profanity here). Perhaps we are in WSG and the one person with any resilience gear decides to run the flag and gets chewed out because of it.

In any BG there will almost always be a jerk that thinks they can control other human beings and make them do what they want. If not, they develop a horrible case of nerd rage and ruin everyone’s experience.

In this new series, I will be chronicling every jerk I run into in BGs. The amount of jerk to rational people ratio has shifted dramatically to the “jerk” side of the spectrum these past few weeks. And frankly, I’m tired of it. These people need to be held accountable for their bad behavior and yes, I will be calling people out by name and server.
