Stupid Baal runs. Thought I might vent a little about the idiots that populate bnet, in particular the ones to be found in Baal run games. I shall give a couple of examples of the sort of thing that happens: 1) We reach the throne room. Most of the party move quickly ahead towards Baal. One barb and myself prefer to kill the monsters on the way, so we're left on our own. Due to an unfortunate accident we both die. We come back to the throne room and try to recover our corpses, but it's not possible because there are too many monsters (since no one else bothered to kill any on the way). We spend a few minutes running around like headless chickens and I ask for help repeatedly but no one pays any attention. We both then simply run up to everyone else and stand in the corner so we at least get some experience from the rest of the party killing the minions. One of them then has the nerve to tell us that we were leeching! 2) One sorc and myself enter wsk2. Everyone else obviously assumes that the sorc is teleporting because they stay in town. I point this out so some of them come down too. One of these is a barb who decides to run on ahead as fast as possible. He finds the stairs and tells us to come to him, which we do. On entering lvl 3 he runs on ahead again and some more follow him, leaving just three of us by the door with a horde of monsters bearing down on us. One of us dies, the two of us remaining struggle slowly to clear the screen-full of monsters so he can get his corpse back. Meanwhile everyone else is standing at the stairs to the throne room asking us why we aren't following, even though they are close enough to clearly see the corpse. The dead player then leaves just before we finish clearing the monsters, so we tp out and back to the stairs with everyone else. Inexplicably the barb who was running has run off somewhere and died. Everyone leaves. Feel free to share your experiences!
