LotRO --Travel. Travel in LotRO is slow, tedious, and monotonous in the extreme -- unless you are a warden or hunter.

WoW -- Grouping. There is so much great instance content in this game, but I still hate the grouping mechanics, so I end up skipping most of it. I wish they'd offer versions of their instances scaled to group size.

GW1 -- The fact that it's being discontinued. GW2 sounds very good, but in many ways GW2 is less appealing to me than the original game.

Who said GW 1 Was being discontinued? Anet said the game servers would run as long as people would play it, and in fact the achievements in GW 1 Will retroactively enhance your GW2 game-play in some way.

What I hate:
WOW: The immature community
LOTRO: Radiance Gear
GW: The immature community

@MrsAngelD

I meant "discontinued" in the sense that GW1 is essentially dead in the water, with really nothing new being added any longer. Simply grinding for achievements = not fun, imo.

Tom.

GW1 is NOT being discontinued. GW2 is a new beginning 250 years into the future. GW1 will continue to work it's storyline towards GW2's beginning. It's simply going happen at very slow pace because there's a small but dedicated group of developers working on it. They brought "War in Kryta" storyline.

As for me, I love GW1, but my biggest grief is the lack of persistence worlds. I want to join in battles that are in progress.

Typical comment from someone who has nothing to add to the conversation but pretends to.

I agree with Evan. Cool story, Knob...

...but you my want to check out the other comments in this post about WoW if your looking for something more specific, instead of being an annoying trolling asshat. Most I suspect find WoW great, but it's not without its plethora of issues. I believe that's the point I was trying to make. /shrug

I love WAR because there's a piece of the game in every Tier. I don't feel like I have to wait to play the game like I did in WoW. The problem is that nobody plays in T2, and that makes it incredibly difficult to want to level.

Don't know when you were playing but T3 has been the solid leader of dead zones since Land of The Dead was released.


Love the RvR, hate the terrible PvE. Awful story for the entire PvE experience.

LotRO, Traveling and the fact the game seems very slow paced for the beauty that it is.
STO...big trek geek, but yeah.............
EQ2...for me seems the quest never flow from zone to zone and have to research on where to go next
RoM... the lack of what to do with your 2nd class to level it
CO...Everything after the character creation screen..

WoW: Gold Farmers, i know its not unique to WoW, but the problem is especially bad here
FFXI: requires TOO much time
CoH: can't hold my attention for more than a few months at a time, not enough endgame depth.
Global Agenda: not enough chat features

I love Eve online but hate CCP's inability to actually finish anything. So many features are half finished and it seems to be stagnating at the moment as they are failing to live up to their own mandate of 'we provide the tools, you provide the content.'

As I see it what I hate most is EVE's insistance to always look forward at the new and reluctance to go back and fix the old.

Additionally I wish it had more soul. EVE is still a chat room in space. It's all about social interaction, which is great but sometimes i hanker for the game to be driving corporations along some story paths etc.

My real pet hate is space combat. It's bad. It really needs a re-think. The lack of feedback makes it difficult to get to grips with and it's that kind of indifference that results in the drop rate of so many players.

Don't even get me started on PI. They should have bought out cities XL and saved themselves the time. or made PI a facebook app as it lacks depth. Put it this way there is no fear of drowning in the complexity of PI and the benefit of it? FA overall. POS fuel costs aren't being majorly hit at all.

What I dislike with just about every MMOG - not enough immersion, dynamics, and epic events along with a story to keep my attention from beginning to whatever end there may be.

LotRO: Having to click "dismount" to dismount and gather ore/wood. I am spoiled from auto-dismounting in WoW.

WoW: The end game badge grinding.

YES. Auto-dismount would be wonderful.

The one that really annoys me though is the lack of auto-facing in LotRO's combat - having to have the target in an arbitrary cone centred on your character's face is just a little silly, especially if it means you simply stand there and fail to react to an unexpected attack.

S4League has a ton of problems with it's anti-cheat software allowing for people to go on using cheats with wild abandon.

Although APB has it's three slotted weapons, which make a game of skill a game of gear.
