    Voted for "Other": That guy inviting you to a party or wanting to join your party who doesn't say a single word or show the slightest reaction to anything written in the chat. In general: People who dont play together but along each other even if they are grouped.

    TBH, I hate most MMO players.

    FPS players are mostly okay as 99% of the time they have some sort of social life and know how to socialize. MMO players on the other hand, well, most of them are one of the following:

    1. Fat geek in basement: They can't socialize because they rarely ever go out and they spend their weekends raiding instead of shagging or getting drunk with buddies....simply by default (they can't).
    2. Scrawny geek in basement: Same as above, I don't know which one has lower self-esteem though.
    3. Fat guy that's married with a fat girl: Now this is one of the most annoying types. They think they broke the stereotype but still spend their weekends on a computer instead of chilling with friends. The two married each other for one reason and one reason only: neither could do any better. But they let the whole world think that they're the happiest people alive (only to paper bag each other during sex).....and their kids will probably be fat as hell.
    4. Wannabe Gangsta: This is the guy that shit talks a lot and calls people out. If you find out they live close to you and you call them out for a real fight, all of a sudden their balls shrink.
    I'll edit and think of more when I can...but seriously, most MMO players SUCK at socializing. The exception I've seen exists only in EvE Online and MMOFPS games.

    Stereotyping gets you nowhere. Just sayin'.

    On topic, they're all bad besides new players. My vote went to AFK'er only because it could destroy a good group.

    Just the very fact that sub 1% voted for the noob says leaps and bounds about today's gamers. Look if you want to use Gamer lingo, just learn it! Nothing hard there :)

    Anyhow I voted for "the noob", because 100% noob would be a person who does all the other things. Stubborn elitist that flames and trolls? Check! AFK/leave because party does not look good enough/not enough Gearscore? Check! Rude? Check! Bunny hopping? Check! Racist/chauvinist/l33t? Check! WoW obsessed? Check! 

    Keep in mind that the "noob(or n00b)" and the "newb" are 2 wholly different things. The "newb" is simply a new player(really the Word Newbie comes from words New and By) and you can't be angry at those. On the other hand is teh "n00b"-a horrible Troll and a horrible person who refuses to learn. All the other choices in this thread/poll are actually skills that when fully mastered you become T3H N00b...

    The Know-It-All/Braggart

     

    I played WoW with a guy who knew everything about everything, and was happy to rub your face in the fact that he knew everything about everything.  Always with a smug voice.  Not quite "The Rude" guy, just an annoyance.  After I went back for the beginning of Cataclysm, thanks to the account friends system thing, he found me, friended me, and proceeded to let me know that his guild was clearing this mob and that, and his gear score was this, and blah blah blah...

    How are "most FPS players" better than most MMO players? Whenever I play an FPS I see and hear far more immature chat, racial slurs and ridiculous behavior than I do in the MMOs Ive played. And you think those people don't exist in your FPS games? Seeing as how a large part of the population of this forum complain it is actually the "console kiddies" that ruined MMOs.

    You assume they can't, which is pretty presumptious of a persons lifestyle. They may not have the same values as you and what if their good friends don't live near them anymore hm? Why not socialize with them online. Really you're worse than any of those you listed.

     

    Also for number four how do you "call someone out for a real fight" online? You pretend to be a big tough guy that totally does MMA and sleeps with so many hot girls you don't even know, so you could totally take them?

     

    Edit: I think what I'm trying to say here is how is it sad they don't think the best form of entertainment or spending their time is drinking and shagging? That's a far worse outlook than theirs in my opinion. Though I'm betting by your vitriol that your response will be that I'm one of the four?

    Four types:

    The person who feels general chat is there to bitch about EVERYTHING and ANYTHING especially about things that simply ain't true or that even the most basic "lets try before claiming it can't be done" would solve. 

    The person who feels general chat is for holding private conversations especially if they then throw a hissy fit if others make fun of them.

    The person who never EVER is aware of anything. A new event can be mailed, posted on the login screen, posted on the loading screen and STILL they do not know. But they expect everyone else to give them a full briefing.

    The who person who expects everyone to wait for him, organize a raid, he asks to hold it next week because then he has time... no?

    ---

    Actually there is just ONE annoying type of player: Those players who thinks other people are their content, entertainers, tech support, confedants, hooker, sugar daddy and nursemaid.

    MMORPG's are about playing together, NOT about others playing for you.

    Interesting.  What other groups of people do you hate?

    Other. The expert in all fields(this is more general than MMO related). He knows everything about politics, economics, science, planets, he knows the univers, the black whole, he's the smartests of all, he knows every game mechanic, he knows every class, he knows every fps, etc, etc, etc.

    Most of these players can be avoided. The players that annoy me are the ones that afk every five minutes. I dont want to spend 3 hours running a 45 minute to an hour dungeun while you breast feed or fight wiith your spouse lol.

    the Uber PVPer that thinks he is better than everyone because he can press buttons better than other people. oh wait that goes for all PVPers not just those in themeparks.

    How else could him be better in PVP? There is no games controlled by the mind yet.

    Im not sure if its sarcasm but in any case I don't think my post was as clear as it could have and thats my fault, as that attitude bothers me. I think it could be summed up as "How is he any better (or even different) than #4 if he challenges them a fight IRL" since he is engaging in the same behavior?

    Other(s).

     

    "The Expert"  -  In individual with inflated self-opinion who feels personally responsible to pull you into whispers then tell you why you are playing your toon incorrectly.  Often found giving unwanted advice not appicable to the desired playstyle.

     

    "Social Goddess"  -  Usually found in chat demanding to be the center of attention.  Has very little interest in the game, but uses it as a method of access to a captive audience to her (or his) social needs.  Gets quite upset and rants if those needs are not met.

    Voted Other, the reason is because IMO the Elitist, Raid centric, World first player is the biggest detriment to a communities health.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    Well obviously him and his drunk buddies are the ones who go and pick on the 4 categories he listed, because they don't socialize to his standards. Whatever he does in life, it seems to end up leaving him with a lot of hate. I guess getting drunk and shagging a lot helps with that, but I won't continue because getting called out to fight online is pathetic image
