 I love LOTRO, life time sub, but I completely agree. It seems like they didn't have any real ideas on how to obtain these deeds, so they just came up with a crazy time sink and grind for those deeds in order to make up for their lack of creative ways to acquire those deeds/traits.

Here's mine, in two words        Leeeerrooyyyy Jeeeenkins

 

This is a player thing, but one I seem to experience frequently but more along the lines of TOO many players pulling mobs. Most recently in LOTRO, I was in a group where there were WAY too many chiefs and not enough indians, three people took off and each pulled three different mobs, and adds, almost everyone wiped.

EQ - the amount of time it took to kill mobs

DAoC - 15 minute wait to go back to emain

WoW - The boring "classic" areas. I still get bored thinking about it.

We need an MMO paradignm shift.  Though my first MMO memory is within 5 mins of starting Everquest mistakenly attacking a guard and dieing and having no idea what happened.

Those were the days. It felt so magical, didn't it? I miss that feeling of being clueless.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

DDO - repeating the same quest to get a sliver of the exp needed to level

WoW - the fact that I played the game... it made me understand what "Mind-numbing" really means

Questing in any WoW clone like WAR, LotR, AoC, EQ2, etc. I mean, questing in WoW is alright.. atleast until level 50 when I had to force myself to get to the end-game, but questing in those games are just second rate versions of the same exact thing.

 

I don't think I've ever seen anything funnier than someone calling EQ2 a WoW clone. Like umm, did the 2 part throw you off?

Yeah, EQ2 isn't even a good EQ1 clone....

Of course, since launch, EQ2 has BECOME more and more of a WoW clone.

This is exactly what was awesome about EQ.  Chance could make you fizzle until you were out of mana, an element of danger.  You had to be resourceful to survive.

On a similar note, I've seen people mention meditation(staring at your spellbook to recover mana, essentially blind) on this thead, ...also awesome.  I remember meditating in the Oasis of Marr and if your fellow adventurers didn't warn you of a nearby Sand Giant, you get squished.  I miss the sense of community and danger.

Today's MMOs.... Log in, press 'GO'.... 'WIN'

Like music, movies, and books... Everything is dumbed down to achieve mainstream popularity.  Go Capitalism go!

Walking from the zone-in to the Ghoul Lord in lower guk without encountering a single mob, just group after group after group... all waiting for something to spawn.

The morning sun has vanquished the horrible night.

AION - Fraking Grind, After lvl 25 or so I ran the Fire Temple instance 17 times in a row .After the 17th one I deactivated my account.

 

Darkfall - Macro against the wall , macro against water, wall of pain ( those who played  will know) and actual PV that lasted 40 seconds.

 

 

STO - Loved the space combat but ground combat was enough to deactivate account

"Really officer, they're herbs."

I can list so many it would take hours to put them all down, but these three really stick out the most memorable.

 

AC2 - trying to keep the furnace stoked to rebuild a city.   This is cringe worthy.  

Vanguard - Unicorn Mount Quest Line - cringe worthy...so cringe worthy that I didn't finish the quest because by the time I made it that far I hated unicorns.   I use to go out of my way after that to kill them.  

WoW - grinding faction points - any faction.

LoTRO - pvp  A player taunted another player whose mother had passed away.  They then followed them around for an hour using the a laugh emote.

EQ - Sony made boss mobs virtually immune to fire and ice nukes.  It made evocation build druids useless.  With over 900 AA levels at a time when AA levels were earnt the hard way, it turned me permanently off investing a lot of time in a single toon.

EQ1 - Getting on the boat to Kunark in Butcherblock Mountains and lagging off the boat into the water of Timorous Deep and watching the boat sail off. Oh and no maps.

           Running from South Qeynos to Greater Faydark and getting one shotted by a red before you can rebind.

Lotro - Grinding hundreds of (insert mob) for deed, to then go and get another in the next area for the same Creature. 

           Playing a minstrel felt like playing a bard in eq (irony?) strumming keys 1-8 repeatedly every fight.

Eve - Going after some cheap items in a nearby system my first week, and getting my ship and capsule destroyed AFTER purchasing the items. Great  learning experience.

Tabula Rasa - I took a trial on November 10, 2008. I bought the game on November 16 2008 and added my key immediately. On November 21 2008 the closure of the game was announced :(

Warhammer - Buying the game, finding the exe didn't work and the game wouldn't install. Trawling the web, finding a solution, downloading the exe from the demo, installing the game and getting to play it.

Warhammer - Doing all the above and then finding out the game was a WoW-clone that didn't even have the decency to copy the things WoW did without fekking most of them up royally.

Eve - Playing the game. Utterly, unspeakably, spirit-crushingly tedious. I'd rather play Warhammer. If I could get the bastard to install again.

Planetside - I lived in the sticks and only had dial-up. Yeah... No idea to this day if it was good or bad but trying to play it was.. painful.

 haha i remember the falling off the boat days! i was playing on my awesome computer with 64mbs of ram and using AOL dial up. zoning took me centuries. and i usually always ended up in the water watching the boat sail off. but i actually got a lot of entertainment from that

and i liked the long runs then getting raped in the face right before my destination. it made me very very wary of my surroundings when i traveled.

now in any mmo out these days i can just run from place to place without even worrying about shit because even if a mob does agro me it will just fall off after a few yards.

Thought it would be interesting to see what people absolutely hated/despised about their MMO games to the point it makes your brain scramble to GTFO of your skull before being made to do that again. Here's some of mine off the top of my head.

  • EQ2: Heritage Quests...
  • EQ1: Camping specific species of animal to extinction, or at least what should have been extinction.
  • AC1: The death animation and sound effect followed by the portal...permanaently scarred with both the humour of it and the pain of knowing I had no idea where I died...oh and finding my last taper...
  • WoW: Quest hubs...I swear to god I'm never playing another game where I have to run around mindlessly clicking ! people to then just follow waypoints.
  • Allods: Bag raid...! hubs...
  • LoTR: Killing wolves...in every...freaking...zone...
  • DaoC: c...r...a...f...t...i...n...g.......b...a...r...........

AC1... Oh lord, can I get back down there with the extra sets of armor and weapons I have in the vault, or do I have to write it off...Again?...

WoW PvP server... These clowns HAVE to get bored of this nonsense eventually(while corpse camped by groups of MUCH higher levels with high end gear). They also had some of their buddies spread out around the rez spots. It got really unpleasant.

Eve online (early years).  Crash to Desk Top...Ok what ship did I lose this time?  But thats been happening less and less over the years.

LOTR... Why did it have to be wolves?(face palm). Not to mention that since one of their graphics upgrades, I can't run that or Dungeons and Dragons online without getting a BSD 116 error(even with the most recent drivers).  This has gone on for more than a year and a half now.

Anarchy Online... One of the absolute WORST launches in major MMO history. The game wasn't even playable for the first few weeks.  What sticks out in my mine about later, when it could be played was someone yelling "Train!!"... And everyone runs like hell.

The HORRIBLE grinding of the all too many Asian F2P games I've tried over the years(eyes bleed just from the memories).

Last but certainly not least(I've played WAY too many MMO's to go into here)  SWG NGE.  If there is ANY justice in the universe, there is a nice "warm" spot in the Abyss with dear old Smed's name on it.

WAR : first time ever I paid for a game (a preorder) I could not play at all, while my friends were starting a guild... all this due to the crazy stuttering and Mythic's poor engine optimization.

 

WoW : I grinded to the very top stuff like 2-3 times, but two months ago it's gone and you have to redo it all. I cant take it anymore.

 

Aion : L2 pve was nothing but chain bashing mobs, it was fine when I did it because it was my first big MMO 6 years ago, and pvp & politics were crazy back then. But since then I cant chain bash mobs anymore. Last time I failed at this was in Aion.

 

WoW leveling system : solo questing. It doesnt encourage grouping, actually it pretty much promotes solo only as the most efficient leveling path. And also seeing more and more games each year taking this direction (Champions online for example that would have been so much better as a team focused game like CoX rather than a solo questing game).
