the smelly, long-haired ginger gits that wear illfitting, black, bin-bag-like leather trench coats and hats like the freakin' pirate guy from Time Team, and then have the nerve to think that they and their ugly girlfriends are cool.

i have no idea why there are so many of them, you would have thought that it was such a specific description that there couldn't possibly be more than one. but i know 3 and there's even a picture of one queuing up for Games Day on the GW website. why the hell has no one told them that if they dressed a bit better then people wouldn't look at them with disgust in the street?

seriously though, i number one gripe about 40k gamers is that there are very few good dressers. i was a little upset to find that when i last visited Warhammer World that i was the only person to be wearing a casual shirt. everyone else had turned up in ugly, baggy t-shirts that they'd pick up 'off the market', that came in a range of colours that make a black and white printer look colourful.

its seriously off putting to people outside the hobby, and hardly encourages people from other markets. it wouldn't be hard for GW to produce some decently fitting t-shirts with colourful designs that were excessively nerdy and cheap looking, would it?

oh, and take a shower!

For me its the 60 mile round trip to get to a gaming club or GW although I've met a few mates that play nearer.
But for in game annoyances there was 1 guy when I lived in portsmouth who waited to see your army before pulling out whichever of his armies was most likely to win, would never show you any army specific rules or even mention them until it was time for them to screw over your army, and he generally acted like a dick on the 3 occasions I played him ignoring rules and being generous when measuring distances for himself then checking all my unit coherancy and disembarkation distances to make sure I wasn't cheating.
When I refused to play him it was because I was scared of his army (like little plastic men are a cause for fear) and not because I didn't feel like an hour of being annoyed.
My only other dislike was a really nerdy kid that was a regular at my local GW that always had a tape measure attatched to his belt (He used to get upset when you asked him if he had a Bob the Builder fixation)

When people don't use question marks at the end of questions... Sorry, couldn't resist.

My friend went to a Tourny recently and he told me this story...

(Shoots some wounds into a command squad)
Friend: Ok, so that's X wounds to these guys, and looks like 2 wounds to your Heavy bolters. So what are you going to roll for?
(A-Hole rolls dice, fails)
Friend: Wait, what are you rolling for? You know you have to declare what right?
A-Hole: Oh, those were for my heavy bolters.
Friend: Um... ok, I guess they died then.
(A-Hole picks up normal bolters)
Friend: Wait, I thought you said those were for your Heavy Bolters?
A-Hole: Yah, they were.
(A-Hole continues to roll dice, save some)
Friend: So are you going to remove your Heavy Bolters then?
A-Hole: Yah.
(A-Hole begins his turn, declaring Heavy Bolter shots)

I'm still working on a classification for this guy, but here are some I can't stand...

Rules Lawyer. Doesn't matter what the rule is; it's his way or the high way. Disagrees with the 4+ concept and either RAW or RAI. Will stop the game until he finds someone who agrees with him.

Poor Sport. Either get's angry or very depressed when they start losing. Will often go into emo mode saying life is unfair, your codex is stronger or they need to update his army so he can win once in his life.

One-Upper. Their army is always better than yours; they have more options, better painted models, 1 army more than you do, know all the rules, have 2 hot girlfriends, makes more money than you, drives a nicer car and generally has a better existance.

I'm a girl version 1. I once had a girl say; "You know I cry right?" They will use emotions to gain pity favor. Also uses gender bias; girls aren't great gamers, don't like war, etc.

I'm a girl version 2. Similar to the One-Upper, they will attempt to tear down the gender walls if only to establish their own superiority over you. One wonders why they didn't just punch you in the face to prove their tougher than you are.

I'm a girl version 3. Low cut shirt, push up bra and a wild wind blown hair style. It doesn't matter what dice she rolls, because you're obviously not looking at them are you?

Absenty. This person may or may not actually play the game with you. They might see some nifty book they've wanted to read, start chatting with friends or is distracted by either something shiney, or girl version 3.

Just to name a few... there's a reason I don't hit clubs or stores or Tournies.

Pondering...

I know a local guy that will make you thankful for your cheater...

He has NEVER played a fair game in his life. We named cheats after him. And the worst he has don yet was try to white out a rule in his codex that he didn't like... Yes, he used white out, in the codex, and tried to say he didn't know!

Eyes with out life.
Maggot ridden corpses.
Mountains of skulls.
These are some of my favorite things.

the punctuation was incorrect, but not the way you have suggested. it should have read:

'what' is the most annoying thing in the game.

refering, of course, to the highly annoying use of the word what in every sentence of the core rulebook, irrespective of whether it is a question or even makes sense. such as:

Quote:

Quote:
Originally Posted by 40k 5th Ed, p95
Teleporting what troops are lost in what the warp [...]
and most annoying of all:

Quote:

I dunno what I hate the most
I hate powergamers, cmon! This is a fun hobby, until someone decides to take a tournament army to every game they play, and somehow gets pissed off when you complain about how they're complete glorious bastards
I hate painting commentators. Sure, your painting is better than mine, but painting isn't everything, and I play far better than you >_>
I hate chavs. So far in my local GW:
- I have almost been shot through the ear with a solid shot. Oww?
- We have been stink bombed
- Large amounts of Starter Displays have been stolen
BAH HUMBUG!!!

Dude, I can't even imagine... If that sort of thing were to happen at my game store, I can only imagine the newspaper headlines the following day... "3 shots were fired through the window of such and such games, police say, and suspects have yet to be identified by what the coroner's office could squeegee up from the asphault."

I worry about the owner sometimes.

Level me up! I, too, wish to storm the lands of mortals reaping what is truly mine...but for now, I am but a wee spot of energy...

Clicky!

Opponents who come unprepared. I once fought an Ork green tide army, but the player only had 5 dice.

The game took over four hours....

People that act out of turn. One of my current opponents is still picking up the 5th ed rules, and fired his vindi at some termies through a squad. I meantioned that it'd make them more survivable (4+ cover vs. 5+ inv), so he moved ~4 guys out of the way. I lost an extra 2 termies because of that! Not saying anything against him not having grasped the rules yet, but please learn from it for next time.

I'm sorry, but is this is a problem?
