Thank you for mentioning Darkfall. I recently returned to the game and have been supremely impressed with the direction they're going in. See you in game!

The marathon guys, and I know I've been one, are often grinding rep or trying to get a piece of gear.  They just have different goals from the guy who's casually doing the content and wanting to take it all in.

Why talk when you'll never meet these people again is one reason people don't talk.

Note that all 5 types can be mitigated by getting into a good guild.

Good guilds solve almost all problems.

I hate that there are so many people that, when it remains anonymous to their real life personas, act like douchebags all the time, like is an a-hole what they wanna be like IRL and are just to scared to talk crap the same?

  The Marathon Man should be #1, because it's currently the most vocal annoyance that is also ruining the genre.  It's made everything into a race to get to "end-game", see all the content, and then rush to the forums mid-transformation into a Troll just to complain about "lack of content".

 

It's also kind of funny that Marathon Man is pretty much the *insert crickets here* type that doesn't socialize because that takes time away from maximizing XP gain or whatever.  It's also sometimes the Know-It-All who only talks to a team by telling them their build is wrong or the best way to kill X by exploiting Y just to finish the content faster.  Disgusting.

How do you know they're not an ass hole in real life too ?

I don't care what it's called, but I really dislike the one who strives to be the most obnoxious. This seems to almost always be a kid who wants attention and doesn't care if it's positive or negative. And will often escalate obnoxious right into noxious and cruel, earning a report for offensive and an ignore from me.
 
 
This one is followed directly by the elitist jerk who takes license to be nasty and cruel and get others to jump in on the action.

  • Players that lacks basic understanding of their class and role.
  • Players that don't know how to avoid fire.

The mortal enemies of the marathon man, elitist and know-it-alls.

Yeah but how about the self described "casual player"  who dislikes *any* time consuming or difficult content and thinks that everything in the game should be just handed to them because they only have 5 minutes a day to play  but their sub entitles them to all the shiny things  that guy over there has? 

 

 

The problem with your point is, asking for casual content, isn't the same thing as asking for what you're suggesting. A good example of this is the recent dialogue on WS over the last month or two. This is the way those folks are being painted yet it's not close to what they're actually asking for or suggesting.

If anything I think such misrepresentations should be listed under the Elitist types in the original article.

 

 

 

To be clear, I was not talking about all casual players just as I assume the person I was replying to doesn't think all hardcore players act in the ways he was suggesting. In both cases it's a small vocal minority. Most  players just want content they can enjoy. On both extremes of the spectrum, it's the ones that throw a fit about anything in the game which doesn't match their playstyle which cause the problem.

Ah gads the marathon man is the worst, and usually they are elitist.  The warning signs are easy to spot:

- They complain about being slowed down.  They expect others to want to run through an instance at the exact speed as them.

- They refer to people as noobs, use the term 'casual' as a negative. Their advice usually revolves around being 'faster'.

They complain because about a player not knowing tactics after 1 half arsed attempt to explain (if at all)  If a mistake is made they show 0 empathy.

They say things like 'OMG',  'WTF' and 'You are wasting my time' a lot.

Three of these things are the same player on different days.

Now the worst kind are players that think your time is valueless.

 

Lets invite this guy to our party!

Five minutes later

Oh you have to take out your laundry? Oh you need a smoke break? its dinner time? look at that you got a text message from your sister. awww look at that kitty video.

You either joined to play the game or not don't throw other peoples time away.

# 2 is spot on for me.  I truly think they either don't ever look at the chat or they turn it off.  What human being doesn't respond to a question or something stating their name?  It makes no sense.  Even someone language challenged will try to respond in way shape or form.  I truly think these type of players, and there are TONS of them, just either ignore chat altogether, can't read, or turn off the chat window.  Otherwise...it just makes no real sense whatsoever.

I agree with everything on the list.  But I can say with a fact I am one of the cricket players a lot of the time.  The only exception I will make about anything that I say following is that I do not do this when in a group for dungeons etc... there communication is the key to success.

 

But if I am running around doing quest etc..... by myself and I am guildless there are probably two reasons.  One I am new to the game or two I just want to be left alone and play on my own for a while.  The first one it is nice to have people to talk to, but if I am in the second category I probably just want to be left alone.  I will usually say hey or wave back to people but if I am out questing I don't want random invites from people to do quest or talk.  Sometimes even though it is a multiplayer game I will play by myself.   

 

If I am guildless running around doing my own thing and all the sudden I start getting guild invites without a person ever attempting to talk to me.  That is a straight ignore from all future events with me.  I don't want to join some random guild that I have never heard of or played with.  I am probably guildless because I am taking a break and playing alone for some me time by myself on an alt.

 

Maybe I have just gotten older but it seems most of the time I play alone or with close friends not random people.

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

I hate: The Mutes

 

It's an online game. Say something!

Just report them as bots, because that's all they are if they don't speak.

The ninja really bugs me. The guy that can't wait his turn or tries to take something you've obviously fought to clear a patch to.

 

I dealt with one of them the other night.  Those people are seriously obnoxious. 

 

I was killing my way through a tunnel to get to a main enemy for a quest line. This person was following me but sorta hanging back, trying not to be seen. I noticed them at first, but thought they were maybe just standing there, momentarily AFK, checking on their quest log, or whatever.

 

However, as I continued, I noticed they were following me, but still hanging back.  I went on and killed a few more... sure enough.. there they are, trying to seem inconspicuous as they followed me. 

 

I caught on to what they were doing (it's happened to me before), thought "oh hell no", and, being a rogue, put myself into stealth, hit Sprint, and dashed past the next 5 or 6 enemies going straight to the main enemy I needed.

 

I cleared the normal enemies out when I got to the main objective area, then stood there, still stealthed... a short distance away from the main target. I waited 'til the guy had cleared the final normal enemy on the way, and came running into the room. They didn't have ranged attack, so they had to run up to to hit it with melee. Right when they were about a second from reaching it, I sneak attacked it, and then killed it in front of them. 

 

I timed it that way deliberately, so the regular mobs would have been spawning back by the time the main guy was respawning. This would-be leap-frogging ninja would have to deal with the regular mobs in addition to the main guy, making his task that much more difficult.

 

Satisfied his attempt had backfired on him... I waved and ran off to kill the remaining normal enemies I needed.

It's my right not to talk to you, nothing says I have to.  Sometimes I just want to play by myself but in your logic, I have to play how you want me to play.
