    Just the player who goes around trying to 'group' everyone because he has his own agenda of quests he can't complete solo and has to go when all of his are done.






    What do you mean by trying to group everyone?


    Notice (Insert player's name here), wants to group with you. Instead of asking in chat first.



    Oh, I get what you mean. IMHO it depends on what the invite was for and what he does afterwards...if its just a random party invite and he goes "come help me with this quest", then yea its annoying. But if someone is inviting you because one of your friends told him to (they don't always check with you first) or something like that, then its pretty normal I think.

    Same signs you should stay away from people in RL - immature, self-centered "me me me" people.






    What are some signs of this?



    They only talk about themselves. Every conversation is about them and their needs.

    Self centerdness is very obvious

    The General:

    Cannot relax, even on the simple raids.

    Feels the need to be the Red Ranger for every raid.

    The chat filter is constantly updating with his instructions

    Awkward raid; everyone else is quiet, most  likely laughing or shaking their head behind the monitor.

    Nobody follows his lead and you still win, but he still complains.

    Cannot grasp the concept that failure is an inevitable part of an MMO.

    A wipe is catastrophic, then they rage quit while they were no better than anyone else. Which is ironic because the leader or general does not abandon their team.



    There's failing a raid because someone made a mistake or was new, and then there's failing a raid because someone decided it would be hilarious to replicate leroy jenkins without getting the party's approval.

    Or the party enters the dungeon...to discover that someone had unequipped all their gear right before entering, because he thought it would be hilarious. And then he goes "Nah, we don't need to restart, you guys can handle it! I will just cheer you on from the side!".

    Oh and the classic : Failing a raid because people refused to drink pots. Like...why.


    General spotted

    Nah I am messing with you man.

    If someone did the Leroy I would laugh so hard

    Generally, if someone is intolerant of the uniqueness of every player, I move on.

    It's stuff like this that tip me off to people not being a actual friend in real life. Sometimes you just have to let 'em go because they're more trouble than they're worth.

    I don't know how games are working nowadays but City of Heroes let you assign "personal" player ratings to global names so you could always find "the turds" and avoid them. It's a great feature that all open world MMOs should have.

    If you can program for the Hero engine, and can spare some of your time on a regular basis, come on over to Heroes and Villains and help us build the next great spiritual successor to City of Heroes. Come help us recreate that old magic and get former players back in the game.

    I think the "constantly blames his incompetence on others is the worst type.

    Someone that isn't good and know it is fine, I can help him/her improving, but the blaming other type who sucks and don't know or admit it, people like that wont improve and they wont stop with the accusing whining on other players that actually does what they are supposed to.

    Kicked and on "ignore".

    Same goes for anyone generally unpleasant (you know, racial slurs, calling the healer useless because the player is female, insulting to the others and similar stuff.

    MMO beggars for instance is slightly annoying (not the RP types trying to score a silver for a drink but the ones who wants gold and good gear) but I don't bother putting them on ignore unless they spamm but I ignore all spammers.

    Spammers are rather annoying but still nowhere near real jerks.

    The people who just suddenly quit in the middle of a long dungeon without a message are truly annoying (but I can accept a whisper later about technical difficulties, that happens) and those I wont group with again. I would put them on ignore but for some reason do my list tend to get on the large side so I put worse offenders there.

    Besides those groups there are a few minor offenders but they rarely bother me. I generally get along with most players but I expect people I group with to be civil to eachother or at least be silent an d emote a nod to show they understand the groups instructions for any harder stuff. People don't have to be polite or anything, just not rude or they can find someone else to group with.

    Like those people who argue in favor of p2w aspects and packs in games because they don't have time for gaming anymore so everyone should be affected by their lack of time for a certain activity instead of said person manage it's time or stop doing said activity. Yes, totally agree.

    Honestly if other players upset me enough to write a maifesto, I would just invest in a good single player game. 

    EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests

    ^ that is called a 'ninja invite'. It happens quite often for parties and guilds. I personally consider it rude and will ignore them every time. At least PM/whisper me and ask before just spamming the invite button.

    if you group with someone you dont know and they use the term hun/babe alot..with the conception that they are female..you get along..then you realize the way the person is talking in chat in a full group is really a guy just by the mannerisms in the way they talk in chat..like they are bouncing back and forth..is it a guy or girl?should i be not talk in a perverted manner? should i be nice and respectful? ..its confusing like they are a transgender..or just playing the "part" just to get good gearz or loot drops..with ADD i cash out of  small grps alot early if i dont know the person ..trusting is not my strong suit , exceptionally in a pvp environment lol

    When a player is advertising that they're looking for people to play with...with the stipulation that it be a girl with voice chat.

    When the group pre-decides to greed everything and they need on the first valuable thing that drops.

    If they have a shitty name. Like Sasugay.

    If they say anything about Groot.

    How about always going for nice and respectable? It tends to work fine.

    Flirting in a MMO is something you should stay clear of unless you gotten really good friends and learn to know the person first, if you want to flirt with random people I suggest going to a pub. Or at least go a pub in the game and RP being drunk and obnoxious. ;)

    Some people do flirt for gear and gold, and yeah, they are guys with a female avatar.

    Spam invites, spam duel challenges if I'm not standing in a dueling area especially if the dude is higher leveled. I love duel auto-decline.

    After a while it gets obvious which people you should play with and people you are better off avoiding. Nice and friendly people ends up on the friends list, loud and obnoxious players gets placed on the ignore list.

    As for flirting, nothing wrong with going on skype or webcam with someone you know a bit...unless you are married or a politician.

    People continually making negative posts/comments.




    Especially when it's known the game/guild/community is harmful or troublesome, yet the player keeps going back and wondering why it's happening.
