I bought somehting at GW and was taking the bus home, then I noticed the man next to me had a GW case and a GW bag (like my own but bigger). We talked for a bit then I asked him why he didn't stay for the mega battle. He said there was too much shouting (There was maybe 20 kids and 2 staff in a room with as many square feet as a class room) except there, they we all around 2 4X4 tables.
That made me think, very loud noises annoys him (I like it maybe once every 2 games when its in context, like the time I put pause on let the bodies hit the floor then blasted it out once i sweeping advanced him in CC, about 3 weeks ago to my friend) what do I find annoying.
The on Warseer there was a thread about people getting mad and throwing a tandrum. It did get moved to the payer only sub forum BUT. I would like your oppinions.
What are the best tandrums you've seen and what did other people do to annoy you or sumthing?
This is what I would of posted on the other forum:What do u guys have?I think him(and another kid about 15 I think) gives bad names to teens at GW, because I don't see what I do wrong (ok ONCE I did something, but I had a reason).
-Ask me if he can have my converted (2nd fav model) necron lord's arm, to make a dawn blade, to make one of his crisis suits Farsight. I said no.
-He trew his mesuring tape at me over my army, because I needed it, I just hit it away from the table (I cannot, catch stuff), went and picked it up, the he told me to stop trying to break his stuff(I didnt mind, he then droped it on his hammerheads)
-Still laughs at me because in our first game, he 1 shot killed my monoltih in the first turn. He does not realise I never lost agaisnt him, and the only ties were when I felt bad for him (read, I didnt want him to become irritating) so accept to surrender for a draw(once in the new necron codex incident) and the other I killed his whole army but 1 Immobilised and weaponless railheard, and his commander was still in reserve, he killed a grant total of 1 necron warrior (who made his WW.
-Lacks respect for him models(I don't care) but also his opponents. (He put his tanks (4 devilfish chasis) in a tower, to see how high they could go. He also lets the models he drops on the ground for up to 10 minutes, and gets a "bitch fit" when someone steps over(happened twice to kroot).
-Got mad at me for touching his stuff when I picked up one thing that fell under a table and he didn't see it.
-Argues that all his Suits are str 5 (this includes Stealth Suits), all his models have WS and BS 4(they are like necrons) and that all squad leaders have 2 wounds (for FW and SS) and gets mad at me for asking for his codex(I knew he was right, but I knew more he wouldn't take my word for it), then becomes angry when I showed him the real stats.
-Just lacks (In french you say, savoir vivre) which means he doesn't know how to live(like I don't know, open the door, when your hand is empty adn the other guy is carrying 2 cases, or not pretend to drop his monolith and laughing at the face he made saying but it WOULD be funny)
-First(and last) time I left my models at his house he left them on a shelf the cat goes at night, the cat proceed to push my box with 2500pts of necrons off a 6' shelf. The next day at school, he says, "HAHA you will never guess what happened last night" and "you know what would be funny? If one came next to my bed, it would be like what was that? *stand up* CRUNCH haha" and yea you got some broke guys (he broke my favorite model, my destroyer lord) "I guess necrons DON'T get back up".**
That army took me 4 years to get with my 5 (that went up to 10) bucks per week, thats 21 weeks for a Battle force BEFORE tax, Plus all those Birth days and X-Mas.
*:He was supposed to give a ride to the guy to his house so he coudl teach him to paly 40k. Being a crappy tactician and not knowing the rules, I wanted tob e there to make sure he didnt form our "recruit" to become like him, so when he asked me if I wanted to come, I said sure, so he said, ok come in lets go, aren't we waiting for "recruit"? "No, I can play with you instead" (I didn't feel like playing, but I did anyways(this was yesterday) and I think "recruit" had to walk home. (its winter in Canada) he lives like 35 minutes walk from school.
**:I felt like I got dumped by a GF, that litteraly how down I felt that day, and he was making fun of me and said thank god I don't put my models there, I put them in the GAMING ROOM. Luckily I didn't bring my monoltih to his house. This also made me quit 40k for a bit.
Wow, this IS a long post...
analyise this and analyse that were great moves. I splelt that wrong. twice. I even spelled spelled wrong. I also said move instead of movies.
My gaming group is like 3 people all very close friends to me, I can't really say I get irritated we're all trustworthy and we're all fair so say it's my turn and I do something and I say my interpretation of the rules, we just play with that interpretation as we play... So no squinting through the rulebook/codex to dispute eachother cause we still play all fair games, in the year we've all played 40k together I can't for the life of me recall one moment where we've had a major dispute (the minor disputes are all number crunching and are pretty civil)
Ahhh the good life
Btw if I had that friend you cited I would not stand for it. I'm sure his school probably has a wargaming club and if not he could just start one... Then find someone with a little respect for other people.

Nobody really annoys me, if they do I don't put up with them. Luckily it takes an awful lot to push me that far - but one or two people have managed!
So I guess what I'm saying is that it's not like you have to stick with him cause there's no one around to play the game - There are gamers EVERYWHERE just that most of them are closeted, start up a club and you'll get some bites.
The most important rule in the 40k rulebook is to just have fun. How are you going to have fun with someone who blatantly cheats and snidely laughs at everything you do?

Hmmm, I don't think i've got anyone like that in my gaming group. I'm generaly quite blunt and if anyone was acting in that manner i'd throw them out lol. (literally if need be)
But yeah i've had some weird times in my past, Working for GW gave me a good selection of weirdo's lol.
I played one kid, i beat him and he started balling his eyes out and having a total hissy fit, throwing his models around. THEN his mother came to pick the little darling up..... THAT was fun explaining why her son was crying........
Other than that, possibly the worst person i've played for cheating and being 'mr Charisma' was my old Ex GW Manager. Go figure?
I can sorta relate to the guy in the first post... Fun is fun but 20+ thirteenyearolds all screaming and generally being 13 is too much for me too. I like a lifely game with mates, but a shouting match is not zema's idea of fun. I tend to avoid the younger gamer when he manifests himself in groups.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

Nah, there ain't anyone like that at least at the store I frequent at.
Something about the OP statement made me feel sad, about the 20+ kids shouting. Around 1995-2005 GW products were essentially non-existent in the city where I live. There were GW products before 1995, just that around that time period no store stocks them in, until now. The result is the frequent/experienced players are older people -- 20-30+ year old, even 40s. Everytime I go to the store, there are no kids around, but grown men. I feel old everytime I'm near GW stuff. Moreso if I'm in the store.
Just saying the differences between here and you guys across the continent. You have mostly younger kids in the store while we here have older people hanging around ...
I've been at a semi-local GW store from time to time to talk 40k stuff, occasionally buy an item or two. One day, there was a group of 12-13ish-year-olds in the back of the room, who began hooting and hollering to the point where the red shirt stopped his conversation with me, glanced to the back of the room at them, glanced back at me, murmured "Muppets!" and went right on with the conversation. Ever since, I've used the term to refer to any overtly obnoxious tweenie players, and even some who are "old enough to know better."
Now, feel free to skip if you've heard this story, since I'm pretty sure I've told it here before, but if you haven't, probably the most childish tantrumlike behavior I've ever seen was at this same shop. They were going to have a mega-battle one Saturday. I didn't have time to participate in the whole game, but I thought I'd drop in to watch some of it. A couple people were doing quick pick-up games beforehand, including a fella who seemed to be a good 5-10 years older than me (I'll be 36 next week). He seemed very knowledgeable, comfortable with the game, and had brought his marines (just one of many armies he owned, or so he told me) that were built and painted well.
So when the mega-battle started, on three tables at once, I decided to watch the table where he was playing. He sat there with at least five other players, split into teams on either side. One of his opponents was a nid player who also seemed "old enough to know better." He wasn't my age, but clearly no younger than 25.
As the game began, right away there was an argument between the two over stuff you could do, stuff you couldn't. Certain rules were nullified just for the game (no deep strike, scout moves, etc.), and something the nid player got to do that the marine player didn't, well, that didn't go over well with the marine player, and an argument broke out. The marine player kept insisting that this condition existed, that one didn't (I've long since forgotten exactly what they were fighting over). First off, this seemingly mature man went from a guy old enough to be the father of some of his teammates (did I mention the rest of the players at the table were teenagers and younger?) to someone who could have learned something about manners from my two-year-old niece. All this in a game that no one paid to get involved in, and had no prizes available to the winners. Nothing at stake here except an afternoon of fun.
The nid player was no better, at one point leaning across the table, smiling from ear to ear, and shaking his head with a provocative, childish, "Um-um... um-um, no you can't. No, you can't." Heck, *I* wanted to punch him, and I wasn't even playing!
Eventually the volume rose to the point where a GW staffer came over to mediate. The staffer made a quick, clear, level-headed ruling that partially favored the marine player. The marine player then, I kid you not, leaned across the table, and half-shouted, half-whined, "I'll EXPECT your APOLOGY now!" Needless to say, the nid player did no such thing, STILL arguing. Finally, the staffer practically dragged the two out of the store into the shopping mall to lecture them about manners.
As they left, a 16-year-old player looked at me, and mouthed, "Wow!" My thoughts exactly. I didn't stay for the rest of the game.
