I haven't been on the game for over 2 years and decided get back into it. I'm a fresh level 80, so where 3 other people in the dungeon, alongside a very high level player. This was my first time in this dungeon too, I asked 2 others and it was theirs too.
We got through the first half fine, a few deaths from all but it wasn't so bad thanks to the hl player. The hl player didn't say a word or communicate the entire time we was just following and figuring it out as we went along.
It then got to a part where he wanted to skip for a shortcut, he set up a portal as we was being swarmed by enemies and we all missed it. He them sais something about how did we miss it right in front of us and that it's crazy obvious and so on. I then apologised and said "Sorry didn't see it" and he then proceded to insult me and say indirect things to me basically saying I'm stupid. That 'I should know what a portal looks like by now," "your a mesmer come on" and more. I explained it I know what a portal looks like I just didn't see it and apologised again. Regardless while this was going on we had to take the long route without him because he refused to come back down to help the team.
He was insulting us the entire time comparing us to children, ect. "Don't reply to me in that tone" just acting very supirior.
He then started to say we should be thankful he carried us and that he refuses to help finish as we are capable to do it alone. So we proceded on and the other 3 teamates decided to kick him due to being afk while spamming us with ,"you guys can do it" "you can do it alone go on"
(I thought maybe harsh to kick but they all agreed that he was just being rude at this point)
We contuned on and finished without him regardless of what he said that we "needed him to carry us" he said "this is what I get for being a nice guy" and sending messages to everyone like so afterwards.
Just in general it made the entire thing depressing, even after an apology multiple times he would not let it go and decided to "teach us a lesson" by making us do it alone. But I never asked to be carried, I just wanted to play a dungeon, I don't understand why players like this who claim they are "nice people" and want to help low level if they're just going to act like theyre supior and treat us like garbage while we kiss their ego, then if anybody replies they get mad because we are not showering them with thanks for helping newbies?
Like I am greatful for the help but that doesn't mean it's okay to talk down to us like we're nothing? Just teach us the right way to do it and move on, that's what any mature adult would do in the real world.
He also said normal players would kick imidiatly, but regardless I would just que up again and start again. It's not about other players it's about you as a player, it was his attitude that made the entire team feel bad for being new. You cannot act like you are being the nice guy if your actions are the complete opposite.
