Do you really not see the irony?

Does someone have to spell it out like "we have not added 8vs8's before, just to get mezzed while running by or getting run over later. Don't blame us for being upfront and taking a chance when you are engaged, blame your other 8mans for being bad and creating the situation."

The dilemma is older than humanity. What came first? The adding smallman, or the chasing 8man? You have to ask yourself what kind of person you wanne be. Not look at other "baddies" (in parenthesis because that is just the current label for 8mans-zerging) and try to justify behaving just like them. There's no justification. There is also no reason for justification, unless you somehow dislike what choices you made for yourself personally. If you run down smallmen and soloers with your 8man, then you are a 8man that desn't care about good fights as much as it cares about fucking over other players without them standing a chance. That's fine though, but man up to it...well or don't and hide behind meaningless justifications ;)
This is true, but it’s not going to stop happening. Small mans and solos will continue to add so we will continue to roll them, it’s a never ending cycle. Maybe if we saw a certain small man run by a fight and not add we would give them benefit of the doubt, but that has yet to happen.
Then where's the challenge in rolling a solo or smallman in your "uber/1337s" 8man? Just be honest and say you're doing it for the RPs. If a crappy soloer or smallman adds in on your fight you should be good enough to take them AND another 8man if your group is even halfway decent. THEN remember the adding bastards and then roll them THE NEXT TIME.

Rolling a soloer/smallman won't get you on anybody's respect list. You can roll them, they can't roll you. Start by showing respect to the little guy who can't compete with their numbers and you will gain respect far faster. Like the poster above me said in so many words, act like a dick get treated like a dick.
Part is when it’s a 8v8 and a decent match a adding 3-4 man can really mess you up. Specially when it’s 3 hunters all plucking your support, you have to disengage and address the issue. That’s where you get caught, if the other 8 doesn’t pull off your going to get caught by them and rolled. I could easily take a 3-4 small man and add any 8v8 and what ever side I add will win because I’m going to hit the characters that matter.

I get that. When it's 3+ Hunters adding your fight all bets are off, get those bastards. It's probably the same 3+ Hunters who are rolling solos. I HATE stealthzergers, because nothing will push newer players from the game faster than getting stealth zerged. If you see a stealth smallman, then by all means, roll them. More than likely they are on their way to set up to roll solos.

A little anti-stealth zerg video. It got so bad that we would go out and do nothing but hunt stealth zergs on live with duos/smallmans, and occasionally with an 8man (when the stealth zergs were literally 12-20+ stealthers working together). Just watch the intro, from 0:01 to up to about the 1:00 mark to see how bad it got on live. It's not like that here, but if it gets that way again the only thing to do is to hunt them mercilessly.
