What is the most annoying thing in a game

I have a questions to all warhammer 40k players out
there. What is the most annoying thing in the game,
Do you have any bad 40k players and noobs at your
local hobby shops, games workshop stores or the
gaming clubs that are power gamers, cheating in
the 40k games, bad mouth and talking negative
about your nice painted armies or half painted
armies. Do have any whinny players and noobs
at the table top annoying you because he or
she losing a game with toy soldiers. Finally do you
have problems with rules lawyers?. What's your
experience with the very awful 40k players and
noobs?.

My Warhammer 40k Armies

1.Aurora Chapter Space Marines
2.Imperial Guard Cadians&Catachans
3.Daemonhunters&Witch Hunters
4.Emperor's Hawks Chapter (Future Project)
5.Chaos Space Marines (Future Project)

I very much dislike the sales people at games workshop - its not their fault but its the false friendship they load on you and how they keep weeding in 'buy this' in their conversations. Very annoying. If I want to buy something I'll buy it.

Game wise maybe arguments - but in some games thats half the game its self. Haha.

MVL.

I particularly despise people who come to play a game (by nature a competitive enterprise) and then spend two hours telling you they don't want to win.

Fuck off then!

true story
player X "no, he has toughness of 5"
me "are you sure? last time i played i am sure it was 4"
player X "oh, i dont think so"
me "well lets have a look in your codex"
player X "i dont have one"
Me ".........................................right... ............"

If you come to play punch in and bring your "A" game, i am not saying be a power gamer but at least have the fucking codex of the army you have.

Also read the rule book

Please listen to my PODCAST

There is a group of 3 twats that come to the local shop to play in the RTs, there a bunch of crying little bitches and they always manage to kill the fun in any game.

The hole day is consumed with him trying to show off his girl friend and bragging about how "awesome" his army is and how he would get a 7-8 for comp in a GT. Then we all counter with "We don't feel the need to show off, some of us actually have lives away from Warhammer" and telling him he is a fraking moron and that the crap he is playing would get him a 0. Mostly because hes a crying little girl.

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

You know, you shouldn't berate 12 year olds, it is completely uncalled for. But I must say that playing with young kids that aren't exceptionally chilled out can be a real pain, especially if they play spess mehreens. Other than that, the only people that really bother me are extreme rules lawyers and those who bring a GT cheese list to a friendly game.

Rules nazis kill all the fun in a game. Yes there are rules but for the fun of the game they need to be broken sometimes. For example why quibble about 1/2 an inch with shooting or charging?

Also sore loosers/winners. Its only a game, get over it...

The dice god's! there so fickle.

But seriousally people that are so serious take the fun out. And people that pick cocked dice up and re-roll just because its not in their favour but then dont re-roll when it is in their favour. And people that comment on your moves that arnt even playing. Esspecially when its the right one!!! But in all fairness these people that can "spoil" the game are thankfully a small minority in my area and most players play fair and take the good with the bad.

I dont so much have a problem with power gamer's so long as i know then ill make a power list also. And sometimes you do have to practise even with power list's

I can defiantly relate to this one lmao... its so stupid... sad really.

The one thing I really hate is the LoS I always get players that say something like "You cant see my tank because its behind a crater" or "a shrub"... THAT MAKES NO SENCE....A crater is a large hole so unless you in it it will provide no f'ing cover what so ever. As for the shrub... sure you can have a 5+ cover. "

That kind of crap blows my mind.
