Sometimes people do things that are dumb in MMOs. We know and accept this. Sometimes people think that dancing on a mailbox in World of Warcraft is still fine or Leeroy Jenkins jokes are still funny or whatever. Again, that’s fine. And then sometimes you have your tank at level 120 and in decent gear stand in the obviously wrong spot, die, get a battle raise, and then immediately do the exact same thing.
There’s a point where it feels like something passes beyond being bad play or mistakes and into the realm of outright absurdity. It’s not even limited to causing deaths; I’ve seen healers in Final Fantasy XIV casting a lone healing spell and then casting nothing else, not even damage spells. I’ve heard tales of Rogue players in WoW with only one weapon equipped, nothing in the off-hand. It’s just self-defeating for no purpose, and so I ask you today, dear readers: What’s the most jaw-droppingly absurd behavior you’ve seen in MMO group content? The stuff that’s so far outside the realm of reasonable behavior that you move past anger and straight into confusion?
