Default Biggest annoyance during Online Play?

Hey all

Just wondering what your biggest annoyance while playing online?

I play a fair amount of COD4 and for me these are:

1) Air strikes. Not the for reasons you might think though. I don't give a shit if I die. No biggy. I tend to snipe a lot now I'm at Level 55 and don't want kills as much so its bloody frustrating when you are looking through the scope, a enemy player is just about to come into the crosshairs... and some idiot from your team calls down a airstrike right near you so you get rattled and the shot goes off.

2) Spawn Campers. Oh. My. Fucking. God. Especially in Free For All games on certain maps (Vacent, Creek and Overgrown especially). Might as well not even spawn. Your kill death ratio hits about 1:3 sometimes, and theres not much you can do about it.

3) People who bitch and moan about "noob tubes", "LMG noobs", "P90 noobs", "marty noobs", "last stand noobs", in fact people who complain about "noobs" full stop. I have a really hard time not telling them to fuck off. Certain things like Martyrdom and Last Stand are designed to remove Spawn Campers, they don't make the game unbalanced if you watch what the hell your doing. People who bitch about them just need to remember its their fault for running into it. As for "noob tubing", you get killed like what 3 times a game by a weapon that only has 2 shots and requires reloading in between? You've got to be pretty close to use it as well. How is it different to using a grenade?

4) That one prick who is always being racist/homophobic or spouting of shit they think is intelligent. Yes because when I go online I really want to hear about your personal problems with a race of people you have never met and only think the way you do because the media tells you all people with brown hair are baby eating, sheep shagging mongolians (sorry if you are one of them btw no offense ment). No when I go online I want to put a R700 round through your head and then have you G3 me right back. But hey thats just me


Yea... so your thoughts

Ahhh i play cod4 on the xbox myself and i hate people from mainly america (not all of you are bad im not saying that) but mainly american teenagers who start insult me and my friends because we're English. I mean yesterday one person said to us "at least we don't drink tea every morning" my mates and i found that hillarious.

I also don't like the fact that if they do win they go "we owned you're arse" Ummm yeah... it's a game calm down. Or they fact where they go "in real life i'll kill you" .... are people so stupid or they trying to sound big in front of people they don't even know? But apart from that xbox live is great

Im an avid COD4 player, biggest annoyance, LAG! you can empty a clip on someone, and they still manage to down you with 2 shots, when watching the death cam, you see yourself stood there staring at them with your bollocks in hand!

I'm a big tf2 and battlefield 2 player, and my main problem is people who clutter up the mic with shit. Not so important on tf2, but on BF2, when you're trying to coordinate a squad or your entire team for that matter, having some dumbass spouting insults at another player is damn annoying. Oh and yeah, not so important on tf2, but yeah, players pumping music through. Argh that drives me insane.

'course my other main problem is everytime my phone rings, I lose connection...but thats my own problem

But yeah, pretty much everything already said has baan a major annoyance at some point, especially the british/american discrimination thing.

These are all based on Xbox 1's Xbox live.

Online gripe the first: Alright, this isn't meant t be insulting, but simply, American ten-eleven year olds whose voice hasn't broken! Most are nice blokes, but you get these babyish, squeaky ones that shout at the screen "YOU F****** SNIPED ME! WHY? WHY!!! WAH!!" and so on. Granted, I am thirteen, but please, if you have nothing nice to say, or nothing that's going to help the team, DON'T SAY ANYTHING. Please.

Online gripe the second: This specific to battlefield 2: Modern Combat (and possibly Battlefield 2) and is aimed squarely at the idiots who control EA's servers. When particularly busy, games eject people randomly, which is really, really shit. Especially if it happens to you. You can't get into any of the other servers, as the same thing has just happened to them. Occasionally, you can't even get into EA online full stop! EA, one of the biggest game manufacturers on planet Earth, online system implodes when more than 40 people are playing, whereas Novalogic (a much smaller, less well known game manufacturer) can run about 10 50 player games at once, without the slightest of stutters or lag! What's wrong EA?

Gripe the third: Halo 2's mute system. It is extremely easy to mute someone in the lobby, via the friends list, but when some nutcase starts spewing obscenities, it takes ages to shut him up. You have to go into the pause menu, select the friends list, cycle to recent players, find the aforementioned tart, whose right at the bottom of this list, and when your about mute the tart, your eject from the pause menu to see your corpse being teabagged by the guy you were trying to mute in the first place. AHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, I need a lie down now, and possibly not play Halo 2 for a couple of days....

CoD4 Online: Whiners about "n00b" weapons, racists, rednecks, Americans, people who scream into the mic, people who eat while playing, teamkillers, spawn campas, M16 whores, RPGs, the "Eavesdrop" perk.

Halo 3 Online: Elites have a bigger "headshot" window then Spartans, since I play as an Elite, this bugs me to no end.

Some Jerk: Dude! Ttlly headshotted ur n00b ass!!1!

Me: Yes, because my "head" is twice the size of yours. Have fun with that.

Rainbow 6 Vegas 2: The fact you die out of nowhere.

Ace Combat 6: Poor reality, no skill required. Point and shoot. Online, at least. The AI is rather good.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

In xbox live

Kiddies talking shit, I really don't give a damn, and I really don't wanna hear it. Also what the hell is 'Lick my Balls' meant to mean, its the saddest most pathetic sounding put down I've ever heard.

Moaning in general in Halo 3, especially by winners, you've won, why the hell are you moaning about how we played, the fact we dared kill them a few times or run them a close match is an insult???

People taking the mick of my name 'fuzzy spiral' when they are called Hanphar2366 or some bollocks, I mean at least mine blinkin means something. Okay to be fair that only happened the once, but it makes me chuckle considering the names he had, can't remember it exactly but it was on those lines.


In WOW

Griefers who gank lower lvls - go away, your pathetic, if you think having a lvl 70 killing lvl 20's is awesome I can safely assume why your not in the BG's, as your obviously a crap player. Also all the folks I know who've had that done to them just relog to another alt. Its just a big waste of time, and I'm glad to see it won't be a big problem in Warhammer Online.

Constant whining about losing BG's by some players, yet having a static unmovable plan that doesn't work 8 times out of 10, but because it does those two times it must be awesome. Anyone criticising said plan must be a noob and should be ignore, laughed at or taunted. And aye, my main is Alliance.
