MMO things that grind my gears

10 things that grind my gears when playing MMOs:

  1. porn site advertising by players who don’t play
  2. people who reply “yup” to everything!
  3. people who call “I get last hit!”
  4. people who try to emphasize their amusement by typing, “LOLOLOLOLLLOLZ” (always with a “z” at the end)
  5. voluptuous female art that attracts people to play games, when the in-game models are fugly
  6. game trailers with superb CG animation, but in-game graphics are “meh”
  7. people who correct others for misspelling “owned” with “pwned” (lighten up!)
  8. chatting about the polls, “who did everyone vote for?” (none of your bizness, pal)
  9. getting a temporary ban for something I did not do.
  10. having to change my name when I join a guild

I’m done for now.
