    Facepalm moments

    We have all done something in game that was a self facepalm moment.

    Either your telling someone how bad a certain player is only to realize you sent the tell to the person you were talking about,or thinking your sending a tell to someone thats really personal or just dogging someone only to see that you typed it in guild chat,raid chat,or even worse...trade chat.

    What was your facepalm moment?

    Re: Facepalm moments

    Mine's just like what OP mentioned.

    When I first started playing, I was in Teldrassil and I met up with a female rogue or something. So I suggested we quest together. Eventually we come across some young player, around the age of ten (he admitted to it). This boy for whatever reason thought he 'liked' this girl. So I attempt to whisper said girl about it. Instead I said in party chat, accidentaly, "lol, this dumb kid loves you."

    I felt so bad. The worst part?









    I was 13.

    When I read this one thread where someone typed "whipe" instead of "wipe"

    I the proceeded to laugh my ass off thinking of Stewey Griffin pronouncing all the "W" words with "Wh"

    I then realized that even the simplest of web browsers contain an automatic spell checker, which in turn, made me stop laughing.

    I finished with a face palm and was like, "these people are complete morons"

    No shit, it happened like 5 minutes ago.

    Ghost wolves taunting ony = Cleave + breath all over my nice little cluster of melee...
    I sent them to taunt the whelp that was eating the healer behind me, didn't think their taunt would work on her aswell.

    Wiping on Northrend Beasts in a 25 pug.. With Icehowl having 4k HP left

    And:

    My friend and I were looking for people for HoL HC or something like that, and I got a few whispers from DPS. I decided to take a mage, since he seemed like an okay guy. He suddenly started speaking our language, which surprised me a bit, but I guesed he might have just looked a tour guildname and figured us Danish too.
    We met him at the summoning stone, checked out his gear, and my friend told me he had been in a VoA with him before, where he was doing 1500 DPS or below. So he wanted to duel him, since it should be easy for him to take him down. He refused, and after a while I kicked him, then ignored him.

    Then after a minute or two my friend, on VT, was like "Oh shit.. That mage right?"
    "Yeah?"
    "He's an alt of one of the officers, and he's just wondering why you kicked and ignored him"

    ...fuck

    I was in a VoA 10m last night out of boredom.... after the 4th wipe on Koralon, the RL suggests we do an easier boss (standing in fire = hard boss). A couple of people didn't want to because they didn't want to be saved and not finish Koralon. RL goes into explaining how you are only saved to the individual boss. I almost broke my nose.

    Nerf teabagging!

    Re: Facepalm moments

    Similar to what some other people said:

    Back in TBC me and my brother were going to MgT Heroic, bearing in mind that my brother was a rogue at the time, we got a full group together and were on our way there when I realised that my brother had about 2k less HP than the tank.

    I promptly /w my brother telling him that this is going to fail. I said something along the lines of

    "This group is so shit, we're never gunna be able to do this, you've almost got more HP than this shitty tank -.-" But yeh, it was in /P. I felt like a right douche bag.

    No one really said anything to me, but never the less, we didn't get past the first boss.

    Re: Facepalm moments

    a friend needed a healer to fill in for ulduar10 yesterday for freya hard, so i decided to sign in.

    it went by just fine, he got his proto drake, shits and giggles and what not. only weird thing was that i pulled nearly the same healing as the holy priest as disc, but i didnt put much thought into it.

    next we go to mimiron, and oh god...

    apparently some of the people in the raid hadnt done it before. but they didnt only die to fires, oh no.

    this tank apparently had no idea how plasma blast worked. dbm's timer only shows the COOLDOWN, not precisely when he'll cast. so this guy would pop shield wall a while before the timer ended, and mimiron would cast it only after his shield wall faded...

    lots of fun. really. but it gets better...

    for some reason i cannot comprehend the other priest decides to go disc as well, which results in my rdruid friend having to put his ass on the line to keep the raid healing going. p2 becomes a nightmare, and during p3, when wed miraculously get there, the tanks would let the robots one shot people...

    but the biggest facepalm moment goes to the mage, for dying to the fire because he didnt want to break his evocation.... silly arcane mages.

    moral of story: being in a good guild doesnt necessarily mean you're a good player.

    Re: Facepalm moments

    level 60 ZG run at hakkar. For people who don't know the boss you had to pull an add every so often and stand in the poison cloud it gave and so when hakkar drained your life he took damage.

    Our healers all died but 1 and most of our dps hakkar was really low so the raid leader tells us to ignore the poison and nuke. He drained life with 44hp left 44! and then proceeded to annihlate the remaining players

    Re: Facepalm moments

    I remember way back in Vanilla WoW, during a LBRS run. Remember how you used to jump down certain areas to avoid mobs?

    "Ok, were all here. Let's get ready to pull."
    *Angry Trolls being aggroed*
    "What's that sound?"
    "Um...Ach? Where is your pet?"
    "...Oh no..."
