Curse of Fail #3 — 6 Comments

  1. Being a raid leader myself, I can sympathize with getting frustrated and maybe even losing your temper at times… but I know my guildies wouldn’t stand for me yelling at them like a madman. I love the last panel with him stuffed in the corner… I think my GM would do that to me if I went berserk one night.. Good stuff!

    • I’ve lost my temper too when raid leading, but I have to admit that I don’t yell. At least not to my knowledge *lol* I’m just not someone (personally) who yells, and as such I really have a problem with people yelling at me as well.

  2. The comic is funny but … I have to admit … as Acloryn says aboove I’m not sure I think it’s okay for RLs to lose their tempers on a regular basis. I agree that teams need motivating but I think somebody who freaks out a lot is more harmful than helpful. In short, I kind of think if you can’t control yourself you shouldn’t be a RL… :/

    • I agree that it’s one thing to be strict and tell people off – and another to just yell and tell people they suck. I always believed that just telling people they failed isn’t helping them, telling them (more calmly) what they did wrong – and how they can improve it – is more likely to see them get better.

      I’m exaggerating our raid leader’s yelling (slightly) for the comic. But it is a sort of standing joke in the guild that he yells too much (and I don’t like it). His most famous words are “We’re not changing a thing. We’re doing the exact same thing again” (talking about tactics), and I just kind of think.. “what same thing.. wipe?”

      I don’t want to paint him with a black brush though, he’s a good guy. He just really needs to learn to hold his temper. Towards the end he was letting me raid lead cause he got sick of me complaining about his yelling. I guess we’ll see what happens in Cataclysm πŸ™‚

  3. How i understand u Saga πŸ™‚ when our GM starts yelling… headsets off .. and i still can hear him clearly :), great cartoon, sometimes i sooooo wanted to do that to evil πŸ˜‰

    But to be honest i kinda understand him, to the end of WotLK i helped RL some pug’s and some times i just wanted to say “You #%#$%, MOVE u lazy fat ass bast#$#$”.

    Raid leading is not easy we took the time/effort to learn the tactics and trying to explain to people that some times didn’t even care about researching them, and/or simply don’t listen to what RL say’s and do what the hell they want…. it drive’s me insane πŸ™‚

    But in the end, i’m glad that Evil is how it is, it help me grow has a player (Just not to hear him yell πŸ™‚ ), and i really miss our raiding nights.

    • I think my biggest thing about his yelling is that I don’t find it constructive. If he actually said what to do better, it would probably be more helpful πŸ˜› At the moment, it’s mainly yelling hehe
