10 Warhammer Online Pet Peeves

February 17, 2009

It’s meme week at Metro Gamer. I love memes.

I also love being lazy.

A certain Wide Eyed Newb took down 10 of his pet peeves for Warhammer Online. Stuff that you can live with but can’t help but ignore.

Kinda like that annoying guy at work, an itch on your back that you can’t reach, stubborn bangs on a bad hair day or acute bronchitis.

Waaagh, being the forefront of WAR bloggery and general foofery, has some of Syp’s peeves and anti-peeves. So begins the bandwagon-jumping!

10 WAR Pet Peeves

1. The WAR Client. Because alienating low-end PC users is capitalist! Actually, I just want to be able to play without having to upgrade worth an arm and a leg. Also, getting the jump on an unsuspecting Witch Elf and having your laptop just freeze just gets on my nerves.

2. “In-between Zones.” Don’t you just hate it when T2 open RvR happens just in the middle of Ostland and Troll Country? A dead pause, you zone and suddenly everyone’s gone. Oh, they’re back on the other side! Partially related to #1.

3. The UI. When I set my UI in a certain way, it means I want it saved that way. When I start editing it, don’t show stuff I already hid and don’t put it back in the default place.

4. Unreadable Nameplates. Zoom out and the text for names, guilds and titles just turn to unreadable garbage.

5. Career Whiners. I hope we don’t get to the point where every career is at Archmage effectiveness. Nerf this! Nerf that! My class is inferior to yours, you should be nerfed! I saw a video of class xx dominate xx number of players, OP! Burn them at the stake!

6. Black Orcs. They. Just. Won’t. DIE.

7. Scenarios at off-peak times. Or rather, the lack of it. I haven’t gotten into a scenario in roughly two weeks. Is Ironclaw dead? One good scenario would’ve knocked some of my Night of Murder tasks out of the park but I never saw one pop at all.

8. Fall Damage. Everyone in WAR can shrug off getting burned, chopped, sliced, bludgeoned, smashed, seared, bitten and clawed but falling 10-15 feet is a death wish. It wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for all the places with cliffs and ledges that litter scenarios and BOs.

9. Getting Steamrolled in Khaine’s Embrace. The forces of Destruction have captured Dance of Swords. The forces of Destruction have captured Death’s Charge. The forces of Destruction brings forth Khaine’s Wrath. The forces of Destruction have captured Dance of Swords. The forces of Destruction have captured Death’s Charge. The forces of Destruction brings forth Khaine’s Wrath. The forces of Destruction have captured Dance of Swords. The forces of Destruction have captured Death’s Charge. The forces of Destruction brings forth Khaine’s Wrath. The forces of Destruction have captured Dance of Swords. The forces of Destruction have captured Death’s Charge. The forces of Destruction brings forth Khaine’s Wrath.

10. Logging in 15 minutes before Oceanic maintenance. Oh wow, I got home early. Time for some Wa-FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.

I wonder how many run-on sentences I left in this post.

    I think #9 was the best of them all.

    I’ve never driven a wagon before but I think I like it. I lolled at your placement of peeves number 5 and 6.

    Hey mate, I am from Ironclaw, T2 – Scenarios happen, T3 – Scenarios are more frequent, T4 – I don’t know yet,

    Maybe I should move to T3. What’s your character’s name, Matt? :)
