I do my best to be a patient party member in group content, but I am not perfect. When we get to the point when the group is just not getting something, that’s when I get frustrated. And then I usually, well… go quiet. I don’t start yelling at my party members or anything, but I do tend to get a bit of stone-faced frustration going on. It’s not entirely to my credit, and it can make certain runs in games like Final Fantasy XIV particularly unpleasant.
Of course, this doesn’t come up all the time. Nine times out of ten, even in World of Warcraft, your group is good enough to do the dungeon and then go home. But every so often you do wind up with that group where everything just keeps going wrong. So how do you handle your frustrations in these group scenarios? Do you start giving orders? Yelling? Getting silent and glowering at the computer screen? Just flat-out leaving?
