It will go wrong

I never had a slice of bread,
Particularly large and wide,
That did not fall upon the floor,
And always on the buttered side.

You must be wondering if I've gone insane, because this verse doesn't seem to be related to WoW. But if you think of it, Murphy's Law does apply in this game. How? Just think of all those days when your guild just can't down a boss because of a bug. Or because of disconnects. Or because of any other possible reason. If any of these happens on any of the raids I attend, I just say to myself "Anything that can go wrong, will you go wrong". It doesn't change anything, but it does de-frustrate me a bit. Why? Because that's just the way it is, even in real life. Those days when you mustn't be late for something are the days you're most likely to be late. You're focusing so much on the "I must not be late" idea that you neglect the whole process required to not be late, and there you go, Murphy's Law applies.

Think of this as a way to ease your frustrations. If it can go wrong, it will, and there's often nothing we can do about it. You can't expect that things always go right. It will (more often that you probably expect) go wrong, sooner or later.

  1. Rolling is a perfect example of this for me ingame..
    if anybody else wants thesame item I always lose,
    if I'm alone it mostly doesn't "seem" to drop

    on the other side: this seems to have a "don't care,get it" part aswell:

    - my offkit is better then mainkit cause nobody needs it so I win with high rolls on it..

    - I was AFK troughout the weekend and my DMC: 90str card got sold for 6.3k while I didn't bother with wanting to sell it.

    when I stop caring about dungeon loot cause I got myself an upgrade via badges, on that same day I will have a very high chanche of finding that dungeon loot dropping.
