Most Annoying Online Experience? Oct. 2nd, 2012 @ 12:48 AM Reply

Any gamer who has had any online experience has witnessed those annoying squeakers , trolls , overall bad players , ect.
But if you were to pick one moment in your online gaming lifetime , what one thing really ticks you off , or puts you off the edge?

For me .
Mics. Or rather many of the people behind the mics. Or rather the things that these people say into the mics.
In no particular order, the variations I sincerely dislike:
Mumbling nonsense.
High-pitched nonsense.
"Skip"-spamming when the map is not to their liking (not to mention the people who abide, grrr...)
Verbal brawls that degrade into simultaneous screaming, often with the added flavor of being fought by people with at least one of the two first annoyances listed.

Seriously, I've met maybe 5 people who have been able to use their mics properly while playing online. And two of those are friends of mine.
Lets say that I've yet to see a reason to use my mic outside of playing with my friends.

Also . Stupid children who I always hear yelling " STOP UZING DA NOOB TUBS " . The weapon was put in the game for a reason . I use it to get kills , using a gun that i cant receive kills with in a game were the objective is to get kills , makes no logical sense.

LAG LAG LAG LAG LAG. That is all. Oh, and the fact that my computer has trouble loading anything more complex than an average Flash game. Anything in 3D, like Offensive Combat or Gotham City Impostors, and I'm booted off the server within milliseconds... unless I somehow get in, in which case the game runs like it's in molasses.


Nothing short of seven flavors of awesome sauce... with some extra-violence glaze on the side!

People with laggy connection and shitty mics should not be allowed to play. The fact that servers let people in with such shitty connectivity is unacceptable. Why let them ruin the game for everyone else?

In CoD: MW3. Repeatedly shot by an aimbot. I had suspicions, but when I saw a killcam where he was literally right behind a thin piece of steel, which is NOT seethrough, and he got a headshot, I cracked the shits.

I don't play CoD anymore

People bitching about things that are part of the game.

I'm playing Soul Calibur and I ring a guy out. He then proceeds to scream at me about how ring outs aren't fair.

Dude, it's part of the fucking game, pick a stage without ring out if you have an issue about it.

When I used to play FIFA online, I hated it when, if I was 3-0 up within twenty minutes, the other player would just quit. It's unsportsmanlike and a real pain for the guy who's winning so well.

My biggest annoyance I can remember was when I went 4-0 down within the first half, then battled back in the second half to 4-4, then 4-5, and when I got to 4-6 with about three minutes of the game left, the other guy quit. Absolutely pathetic.

I think microphones are generally the thing that annoy me the most too. To be honest I've never really encountered any people who start screaming or whatever, but the thing is that most people just have a really shitty microphone and all I often hear is a load of noise and mumbling and vague comments.

What also tends to annoy me a bit is people who keep whining about noobs and their team being full of noobs when they lose. I get this really often in Team Fortress 2. It's just a game for crying out loud, everybody was a noob at some point and some people (like me) just like to have fun rather than trying to be a pro.

I don't play much FIFA anymore, but I remember my brother saying that that sort of thing happened almost all the time. They should just show on people's profiles how often they've done a rage/quit. That'll probably make them think twice about signing off all the time.

I hate it when I am playing a game and my plugins suddenly crash. To be fair, I do play with a ton of tabs open, so I guess it is somewhat my fault, but I still don't like when it happens. Mostly that only happens when I play the Bloons Tower Defense games though. Too much stuff on the screen I suppose.

People being unable to humbly accept defeat. I might make a mistake or lack the skill of my opponent and as such get bested, it is the way of online gaming and even the best players aren't perfect, and in the end someone always has to lose for another to win. Yet so many people seem to be unable to grasp that fact and whine endlessly when losing blaming their team for the loss and generally being annoying. Our team got outplayed by a superior team, that is how the matches work. Yet so many people refuse to accept the fact they were bested and instead whine about it. It gets very obnoxious. I actually refuse to play online matches against other players most of the time now as I don't want to have to deal with such people.

If there is truly any way to make the online experience bad is to have people ruin it in such a way. Games are about fun, enjoy them. Even if you are a hardcore gamer and play to win there is no reason not to humbly accept defeat if the other team outplays you.

Shit like this is the reason I don't bother playing online games.

And also because most online games are just repetitive "who can shoot the other guy first" cliche's. Seriously, I can remember team-shooting games from 2000 that today's equivalent games look (and play) almost identical to. If I wanted to go shooting people, I'd get my paintball gun and go out to the range. At least there's no-one whining about lag there.

People don't like to loose that applies to any game. You might as well get use to that, or just play with friends. Personally I find it easy to ignore the over competitive or peg em down a notch. And there's always the mute option.

The large majority of them turn out to be black guys but basically whenever you join a lobby with these guys:
You know, ghetto kids or whatever.

Do you know how annoying it can be when people quit halfway into a match in a game like Civ V? Oh my holy god. Three hours into a game and the guy quit... I will find him.

For me it's probably running into somebody on Street Fighter 4 that just absolutely destroys you, completely. Mostly my fault for not being good enough, but it's never fun to get stomped on.

Playing Dota is the most annoying online experience. Shame, cause I like the game but the community is full of xenophobes, irritating "teammates" who instantly hurl abuse at you for making one tiny mistake, yet they fail to even realise their own mistakes, mic abuse, etc.

Dota to me is the epitome of a bad online experience. It has everything that I absolutely detest about online gaming.
