As for mob mentality… well, it’s mob mentality. Trying to enforce sanity in mobs is equivalent to stopping a train with a slingshot. Its what makes the age-old statement “If everyone was jumping off a bridge, would you?” funny, as the answer in mob mentality is ‘yes’.

It’s a rehashed picture from half a year ago, but somehow remarkably appropriate.
Only three or four people did -not- follow the commander off the high cliff into too shallow water. They had to rez the others.

Lemmings indeed. That’s taking “following your commander till death” very literally. 😛
I’ve seen that happen fairly often in WvW. People get to a point where all they are doing is following the blue Dorito without thinking at all. I’ve been one of them, although only once have I fallen to my death as a result. Mostly I’m one of the smartarses rezzing 😛
