MMOs offer players many, many dumb ways to die
. Personally, I tend to die by grossly
misjudging the safe falling distance. I've learned more about how games handle falling deaths than would seem entirely healthy. Guild Wars 2
just kicks you to a waypoint for your idiocy, while Star Wars: The Old Republic
is kind enough to let you treat it like any other death. Albeit a particularly dumb one.
But falling is hardly the only way to kill yourself and feel like an idiot. You can jump into something harmful and not remember to move. You can pull when the tank, healer, or both are away from the keyboard. You can even go AFK yourself in an area filled with things due to respawn in the near future. And while some dumb deaths are accidents, today we want to know what dumb way you keep dying in your games of choice. Even if yours is also falling.
