people fleeing battles

long long dungeons that are impossible to solo and no group finding mechanic

pet training is just wow...

the i need boy i need girl people in wc and the beggers

henchman randomly healing the wrong people (people with full health while i am almost dead)

having to run around to do a quest and trying to avoid mobs you don't need to kill because you know the battle will add 10 minutes or more onto your quest (there should be an invisibility cloak or something you can don in place of a mount

did not collect item quests, the battles take long enough as it is

1. i hate collect quests. and someone had to go there, lol.
2. same with weakness-spamming.
3. death ninja pigs is my most-hated spell in-game, after weakness.

4. i know only one "overpowered" ice wizard; and she's kind of amazing. *pokes quequeg*

5. while i have 2 promethean wizards and am pretty awesome (von awesome), i'm certainly not above helping out the little guys. a lot of high-level wizards forget that we all started off as noobs in wizard city, and being level 90 does not make me better than anyone else... being me does, though (lol).



6. uh, hate to break it to you, but this is a family game. while i don't have kids, the little ones have every right to enjoy the game as much as i do... as long as they promise to be my minions when they're old enough. *evil laugh*

7. pvp is lamesauce.

8. the chat filters are in place for a reason and von does not like people who abuse the system. violators will receive a cookie and a power nova to the face, plus a visit from my army of evil face-eating kittens.

9 and 10, whatevs. i won't cover your backside, but i will give you a one-way trip back to the commons (and ignore-land).

11. avalon is one of my favourites, too. go ahead and destroy marley, mooshu, and celestia. but dragonspyre is mine and you *will* leave it alone. kthanksbye.

12. i hate when crowns are required for quest prog. or when they give a player considerable leverage over someone who doesn't have them. otherwise, they're just... there.

13. the mods are just doing their jobs. if you've done nothing to break the rules, you won't have to worry about them, so leave them alone, k?

14. lag is annoying, so make sure your 'pooter and interwebs meet the requirements.

15. i *hate* crafting too.

16. relying on dumb luck still beats having to pay crowns for the good stuff.

17. once again, this is a family game; those parents are only trying to keep their little ones safe.

as i mentioned, i have no kids. but some of my friends do play with their families, and i respect that they want to keep the spiral safe.

18. based on your other dislikes listed in this post, i'm going to assume that you're someone who curses around the filters and doesn't like being sanctioned for it. while i am not a mod and don't belong to any player movements, i fully support everything such groups do to keep the game clean.

19 and 20. beggars, spammers, and two-faced "friends" are no friends of mine (it's not you, really~ it's me who doesn't want to be friends).

21-24. to say i hate these things wouldn't be fair... you see, hate is a special kind of love we give to things that make us throw up a little.

25. if you have completed all the required quests, you won't have this problem.

26. you just insulted my undead boy-friend; things just got personal.
...now, where did i put those face-eating kittens?

A major issue that annoys me and I think can be improved on:

1. Difficulty in acquiring gold

The Problem: I really love to decorate my house so I essentially "pack rat" any rare items I see in the bazaar, the downside to this is that it drains my gold rather quickly. I do attempt to "fix" this issue by farming 2 of the bosses in Wintertusk , however this can get boring really quickly.

A Solution: Make gear drops more common, they don't have to be rare or valuable, just simply more common. Value I would associate with the level area your in of course, like in Marleybone an enemy could drop maybe two or three items worth 100 or 200 gold each fight.

I will post more as they come to mind.

Adding to my list today after lots of fun having to redo ironworks ...and looking oh so forward to redoing the last half of Mooshu

--People who enter big ben with you and then ditch during a boss battle

--Getting disconnected from server while on the last boss in Shirataki Temple (soloing because your mates did not respond to your request for help, or are afk in the last boss' area) and then reconnecting to find out you've been defeated and back in Jade Palace. (Oh well I was losing anyway)

--Pet aficionados who offer to hatch their pedigree 60+ crown pet with your pedigree 60+ crown pet, and when you start to train the offspring, you get a smorgasbord of surprise garbage abilities that are NOWHERE in that pet's parents' first generation genomes.

--Pet training in general. It is an awful, unfun, and brain-sapping chore in most cases. Unless you just have piles of crowns and don't care what you get you just want it for looks. (See above)

--Dorm gardening

--Buddies who drag you from boss to boss in their own quests so you can help them, but if you ask them for moral support going into a chain of D & C battles, they have other things to do - oh and they are several instances ahead of where you are, so you get zero credit for helping them through these dungeons.

--Not getting the ironworks stray cat and having to do the ironworks again, alone, because you missed it; and none of your friends wants to redo it

--pvp in general, it's an arms race to the bottom in my opinion.

--Buddies who allow their younger siblings to use their accounts, join your battles, waste your traps, flee, etc. If I wanted this I would cast a minion.

--Good friends and good players who only have a month subscription and then it expires

--Having the local transformer station get zapped by lightning while you are in Pagoda after waiting for 45 minutes for the dozen or so players the owner invited to decide which teams will go in

--Getting your power back after #1 and finding out your plants are all dead

--Players with big wallets who lecture you on what clothes you should buy and their crown gear is not as good as your boss drop gear and their pedigree 63 crown pet is still a baby

--Dungeon pad hoppers and people who won't listen, in general

--Quest buddies who refuse to be added to a group, and then when you finish a battle and have to go report to an NPC, they have already done it and moved on to the next battle and nag you to port to them right away while you're still going back to talk to the NPC yourself. Usually happens after you've tanked most of the damage, and had to go refill mana and health in the commons, and they skip ahead.

--Players who tell you when to use your attacks, as though you are a human howitzer for them to aim at enemies. This is a big problem for storm because non-storm players don't do the math in their heads before yelling at you to tempest, or to wait another turn. Likewise players who scold you for casting storm minion because they don't want to wait the extra two or three turns it takes to stabilize the match. (these are also likely the guys who have only pixies and no sprites)

NPCs who lead you into mortal danger and then say "good luck, see ya on the other side of that gauntlet". Not only that, but to reach them again to report progress, you have to run another gauntlet of steroid-charged monsters with giant invisible hitboxes that overlap sidewalks. Hi Marla Stinger, this is about you.

The number one thing that annoys me is school of balance, after that its accidently skipping/losing quest, and finally training pets and not getting what you were hoping for.

Well... I don't mean to complain... but...

1. People that join your battle, sass at you and FLEE.

2. The bazaar's LOADING process.

3. Beggers. "Can you gift me?" "Does anyone have any tc I can have?" "Can someone gift me some crowns?"...etc

4. Collecting quests.

5. People who bail on me in Waterworks.

6. People who bring menu chats to my house... Oh how I hate chasing them around the house and sending them...

There's probably much more I just can't think of at the moment.

ok these are the things that annoy me the most
being called " child" and "young wizard"

when several people join my battle and I only need to defeat two of the monsters I am defeating

emergency sounding script during quests

the hall of ice ( I have to do it again and I have to do it again sometime)

having to go to the same person at almost every quest

noobs

weakness spell ( everyone has it)

gold houses don't have any secrets

you usually don't collect the things that you need on defeat and collect quests

ice bosses ( hey I'm ice! chose fire or something)

my life spells always fizzle

how hard it is to lvl up

seeing noobs dorms

people with menu chat that want to be my friend

people that want me to gift them (they keep on wanting to add me once I delete them)

people that say help! help! ah only got fourth health left port!

people in the commons that say " need a girl\boy"

boy\girl friends that break up with you

people that want to get reported etc.

Note: this is not in order of how much it annoys me (if it was, Mega Ra would be at the top)

1) collection quests
2) people asking for a boy/girl friend
3) clicking something in the bazaar and even though the quantity says it's 1 or more, it's sold out
4) weakness
5) weakness
6) weakness
7) did I say weakness? especially when I'm on my balance wizard and they use weakness against me....bye bye traps and blades
8) when pets interrupt battles right before I'm about to use an awesome spell
9) earthquake right after I just put on a blade
10) Mega Ra *shudder* (Beloq [how you spell his name?])
11) Mega Meteor Strike *yikes*
12) people asking me for crowns and then cursing at me when I don't have any or will refuse to gift them
13) ^^ cursing around the filter

What annoys me? I have a list...

. when my spells pop up and I do not have enough pips for anything and I am forced to pass
. when I cannot buy something with gold in the crown shop
. dungeons
. boats ( It's a long story)
. fizzling
. houses being really expensive
. Fire enemies ( I am a fire wizard and most of my spells are really weak on them)

On the other hand, I love it when my opponent turns out to be ice.

People who extort gifts from little kids before letting them play Pagoda. I saw a level 90 balance doing this yesterday. He spammed chat with "gift me" and took one or two much lower wizards into Pagoda with him. (one of them was a friend of mine who came to me afterwards almost in tears because of what happened next.)

Along the way, he would let them take horrendous amounts of damage and then continue applying pressure on them to gift him things so he "would teach them how to not be a noob".

He said awful things about their gear, their spells, telling them they messed things up, and when they were sufficiently demoralized, he would finish off the enemies with a crit nova or ra and then say "okay well there's something I need..." and then blatantly asked them to gift him a crown pet "with healing". All this time, his pet Judgment was spriting him between every round and he had the nerve to ask that.

I was thoroughly disgusted with this behaviour and it should be instantly reportable, but it's mostly their word against his, and there's no rule against gifting someone a pack just for asking.

I've no doubt this guy's superior crowns gear and mount and pet were probably the net result of this extortion scheme. He's abusing his position of experience and the whole concept of Pagoda as a means of intimidating and conning players under pressure of abandonment and defeat inside with the large bosses.
