  • Begging. Put Crowns on your Christmas list, maybe Uncle George will buy them for you.
  • People inviting themselves into fights without asking. Everyone has the right to play with whomever they wish, even if it's by themselves. You pop into a fight and the person in "First position" now has extra enemies targeting them. Ask first, the choice is not yours!
  • Friends popping into your home or into fights without asking. It's RUDE!
  • Lack of common courtesy. i.e. "Please", "Thank you", and "Sorry" go a long way.
  • Someone asking more than once in 60 seconds to be friends. If I said "No" the first time, I probably meant it. If I have to say it again, I will mean it even more!
  • People "Ordering" you to "Port". Yeah. I'm just standing around waiting for you to need help. I don't mind helping if you don't mind being nice about it.
  • Jumping in on my fight and telling me how to play and telling me you got the boss. Seriously?
  • Oh, and last but not least...................... People who wait until after you've done all the work and the enemies are 99% dead to jump in to collect what they need.

When fun little glitches that don't really harm or break the game all that much are fixed/patched, such as the out of battle glitch for example.

1 of the things that annoys me and a few others I know is when your trying to turn in a quest and you have to go around some mops and cause the walk way isn't wide enough you get pulled in and you don't want to fight cause all you wanted to do was turn in a quest.

Aw, Cyrus isn't all that bad, he just gets annoyed when I'm still alive after I come back from spell quests. And other quests ... And he kind of insults you whenever you talk to him ... But when you survive to the higher levels, he's all like, wow, your awesome cause yah managed to live this long!

  • "Spinners", idle wizards who use a Ctrl-key trick to spin their wizard around endlessly so they won't be kicked out after a time of inactivity. Particularly annoying when you're trying to look for items at the bazaar and the clopping sounds interfere.
  • "Ditchers", the high or low-level wizards who stand around instances or dungeons. They join you on the sigil, then quickly back out at the last second. Or the vice versa, where you're trying to solo a dungeon and some low-level wizard appears out of nowhere and runs onto the sigil at the last second.
  • "Battle Baiters", wizards who join your battle and drag more enemies into the battle ring, them promptly flee or uses Esc + Exit or does nothing, leaving you with more enemies to deal with by yourself. Sometimes they also just leave their computer, leaving me to have to deal with a full thirty-second countdown before the turn goes automatically.
  • "Shield Wasters", wizards (often low level) who ruin your stack of traps/damage boosts by using some 1-rank or wand attack. In high-level worlds, they also often trigger cheats.
  • And, most of all, mobs using Tower Shield/Weakness!

"did not collect" missions by far the most annoying thing in the game.

earthquake and weakness (and any spell that gives it like death ninja pigs)

ice minions and bosses (really, they needed ice version storm spells?)

Stun (does medusa really need to do 2 turns? does stun really need to be in the game?)

"dating" in the commons and begging. (not much KI can do about that)

the overboard cheating bosses. some is neat and adds flavor, but most... and get rid of any cheat that removes traps (or dont consider conversion a trap, one of the two)

no auction (non-crown) items

Wizards who, either accidentally, or on purpose, join into a battle (especially when you are almost finished or almost dead); cause another opponent to join - and then they flee = leaving you to either die or fight the additional opponent.... !

1. The amount of times Dragonspyre mobs casts weakness on me.
2. When people join my battle when I literally just about to finish them.
3. How I am about to kill someone with and Efreet or a Serpent and then they cast a fire shield, tower shield, weakness, or plague.
4. The large amount of noobs that continuously add me when I say "stop adding me" or "please go away".
5. When I am doing a fun little practice PvP battle at someone's house and then the one guy that I am battling turns out to be a max level Warlord with full PvP clothes and equipment and a decked out pet. LOL.

1.)Beggars
2.)people who join your battle then flee
3.) people arguing in the commons
4.)Openchatters who haven't heard of how to speak in text chat mode to their text chat friends
5.) "The Singing Mandrake Root Quest" a myth spell quest, which annoys as well as amuses me
6.) Some particularly needy friends who feel they need to beg for help every 5 seconds
7.) My need to scream "The sky is falling!" whenever I go to Azteca
8.) The inability to know what my wizard's voice sounds like
I guess that's all for now.

ever heard of pierced? they do so much stuff to get immune and lose so many important stats for it and then we easily pierce through it with new gear and shadow magic and 50-70 resist that's really no big deal considering every school can get around 90..........................

I agree about that, but I also hate towers and weakness. Especially weakness because my skeletal dragon can hit good with tower on enemy, but not with weakness.

"MMO" does not mean "license to be inconsiderate."

It also does not mean "everybody in here has to want to play with me how I want to play whenever I want to play."

In fact, quite the opposite. We have customs of courtesy in society -- including online society -- precisely so that people can get along with each other in a respectful way.

Asking before you join a battle is simply showing respect and consideration for people. The more people have to deal with each other, the more we need to learn to be considerate. And even the KI programmers show this courtesy is expected -- they put it on menu-chat!

Thinking you can just jump in whenever and wherever without asking is selfish and inconsiderate. If you want to do that, go find a game you can play by yourself. If you want to play with other people, then learn that you really are with other people, who do not necessarily want to do just what you want to do.

MMO means there are a lot of other people playing besides you. Part of the game, therefore, is to learn how to get along with those other people, and to play in a way in which everybody can have a good time -- not just you.

So people who jump in without asking can be annoying -- especially when they have a selfish attitude, and most especially when they jump in just as you are about to finish a battle, and most very especially when they jump in, get you more enemies, and then flee!
