We lost our taunters at like 30% and the tank unintentionally got the pathing to act weird, so for whatever reason, instead of just wiping, we chased the stupid thing around for like 20-25% of its remaining health. I would have rather just wiped than do that but a kill is a kill. I think most people don't realize we're a smaller guild and that around 40% of our raid force is a boxed character.
On the other hand, some people are extremely assmad that we killed emp in a dumb 20 year old game so if us getting pixels triggers people, then I chalk it up as a win. Some people take this game way too seriously.
Nah, they know you're a smaller guild. It just doesn't matter. You're absolutely right, the game is dumb and old. Where you're mistaken is that they are not triggered by your killing Emp, regardless of how you do it. There are a lot of people whose motivation for playing is because they are inexplicably hooked on the bottom of the barrel amusement that is poking fun at what someone else does in a dumb and old game. It's easier than admitting they have been wasting their time.
Plenty of crappy mobs that drop orbs that can be done with very low numbers. With instances I would assume that they're split very thinly since getting a bunch of characters keyed is usually a pretty high priority.
