Has anyone else noticed that it's relatively easy to tell within about 5 seconds of getting in party whether or not your PUG group is going to fail hardcore? And that you could do so without the help of any add-on or knowledge of GS?
It's true, I tell you. True!
1. Peruse the names of the people you are grouped with.
2. That's it. You're done!
If the tank is named something like "Greattank" or "Iamawesome" - congrats, that guy won't hold aggro worth a damn.
If the healer is named something like "Retpally" or "Azzah" - congrats, they'll have no idea what the hell they're doing.
If two out of three dps are DK's, you don't even need to read for names like "Darkarthas" or "Vaderknight" to know that they'll just be facerolling the keyboard.
If you end up with my failtank (a pally named Alleluia), run towards the nearest exit as fast as your legs will carry you. I'll understand if your cat is on fire and you have to go. It happens a lot, apparently.
wow, that was pointless.
