I was sitting around in Stormwind and LFG trying to get into an easy heroic for badges since my new project is to kit all my alts out in Heirloom items. And just my luck, a random person proclaiming “LF1M DPS for Heroic UK!”
I whispered him. “I’ll go!”
No response for a good two minutes. I refreshed the Heroic UK LFG pane. He was still sitting there with three other group members.
I whispered him again. “No really! I provide massive quantities of shot rotation and even a trap or two, and I’ll also bring this [Lovely Cake]!”
No response. I refreshed LFG. An elemental shaman had popped up, and about ten seconds later, he and the original group of four were gone. I sighed and, admittedly a bit peeved for not even getting a single acknowledgment, sent one final whisper. “Well, good luck with your Heroic.”
And for the first time I got a reply. “Good luck with not being creepy to people you don’t know, you weirdo.”*
So-and-so is ignoring you.
Then I burst out laughing. I told my guild and we all had a good laugh. My goodness. This is what happens when you try to be silly and fun in LFG I guess. My bad for forgetting that this video game is serious business.
I got back in LFG. “DPS LF any heroic. Rumors of my creepiness have been greatly exaggerated. PST.”
Got a whisper from a level 65. “I wish I was a higher level so I could run with you, just for that. That’s all I’m gonna say.”
I said, “I’ve got a resto druid your level. Wanna do something?”
One Mana Tombs later and the druid got a level. All’s well that end’s well.
