6 Killer Reasons Why MMO Players Suck Big Time
Nothing beats the thrill of teaming up with fellow heroes to defeat the most powerful dragon in the land.
Nothing tops the excitement of plunging into a Death Star’s deepest craters alongside your A-list gaming buddies, laser cannons blazing.
Nothing can ever match the frenzied hollers of party excitement as the ultimate boss finally meets his demise thanks to a combination of cunning teamwork, tactical gaming, and store boosts sufficient to fund a military coup somewhere like Denmark.
An irritating gamer be in thy midst!
You know those guys — the ones who ruin every gaming sesh with their unique blend of pain-in-the-ass persona, WTF agenda — and seriously IYF bugcraft talents.
Like the least effective multiclass characters, these game wreckers come in umpteen unique downer blends of LOSER.
But MMO Dwarf has his beady eye on these fiends — and I hereby chain them to the dungeon wall of MMO Articles Incarnate so that they be revealed in all their grisly horror and primed for a well-deserved public spanking.
When MMO Players suck, it’s bad news for everyone — and they’ll trash your game if you don’t boot them out on sight.
So here’s my Top Six Pure Strain Sucky MMO Player Culprits.
Get ready to Spot …
and BOOT …
When MMO Players Suck … Culprit #1
No Ears afk Piker Guy (disconnected)
I have no problem with gamers taking time out to answer emergency phone calls, fix a drink or empty their bladders, but MMO protocol demands teamwork.
Without the Massively Multi part, MMO gaming powers down to player — whereupon said player logs off and heads over to FaceBook to overdose on LOLCats, fake news, and imminent social demise.
So why does No Ears afk Piker Guy (disconnected) tag along for the ride?
Deal is a simple 3-way WHAMMY.
1) They seek to level up without effort.
2) They seek to bag the all booty without commitment.
3) They seek to multitask the piking strategy on three other open games while testing the visuals with an FPS program so they can simultaneously post to an overclockers forum about their kickass $2000 vid card.
The worst part about this waste of space gaming lifestyle is how No Ears afk Piker Guy (disconnected) shows up over and over, armed to the hilt with ever more powerful equipment and boasting upgraded superpowers specifically accumulated and tailored to help them become EVEN MORE USELESS TO THE TEAM.

When MMO Players Suck … Culprit #2
They’ve played every quest every which way using every available resource — and they know their way around the game you’re desperately trying to play like a supercomputer knows pi.
For these guys, every story arc is instinct, every puzzle or encounter is a watch me watch me watch me memory feat, every second of gaming time is merely another spin round the ESP Completionist loop.
So ask yourself a question here.
Do these guys really need you and your party around to solo it?
Either they’re attempting to invoke the Singularity by assimilating the game code into their DNA or they’re running second place to some other freako on a speedrun forum leaderboard.
Trust me here — you don’t need this superdetatched interaction.
Even the most pedestrian and predictable MMO should throw up surprises, and the player interactions that spark from awkward klutzes and spectacular victories are what keep all the best games on their toes.
ESP Completionists tick all the quest victory boxes bar precisely the ones most mortal gamers truly value.

When MMO Players Suck … Culprit #3
Trolls have only one objective in mind — and it’s nothing to do with your favourite MMO game.
So while AngryWJack might seem like a perfectly lovable soul whose ultraviolence-oriented character is the epitome of aggro and verbal assault, in real life he’s an unrepentant racist intent on stirring up trouble for everyone.
Sexists, Marxists, militant vegans, eco-warriors, sadists — all these guys play your favourite games.
But they also play plenty of games you don’t, and in those other games (and their respective forums) — guess what?
It’s the same weaponised garbage spewed at random.
Unkind of word, immodest of deed — and infinitely pain-in-the-assier than a solid oak pineapple, the troll exists only to spoil the fun, wreck the game for everyone, and (critically) grind the grisly gears of their own warped agenda.
Whenever they show … the action stops.
Whenever they speak … the story ends.
Whenever you engage them in their miserable quest to defile and despoil and destroy, you unwittingly level them up into even more wretched monsters and embolden them to trash more games, more teams, more fun.
We don’t need them, we don’t want them — and we don’t have to tolerate them.
MMO Dwarf says … butt the heck out of our games, foul trolls!

Sorry, pal — game’s up.
Your boss has worked out the link between your zealous MMO gamer compulsion and the brain-dead zombie shuffling ineptly around the workplace from day to day whose careworn inertia saps morale, trashes schedules and projects, and loses the company billions in cash each week.
Worse still — you’re now a member of your boss’s Guild.
