Oki'm in the mood for a nit of a rant so i've started this thread one of my pet hates is gamers who immediatly say an army is broken if they cannot immediatly see a way to beat it i'll give an example. Last year i was chatting to a friend of mine about chaos, now he plays sister of battle (or rather would play sisters of battle if he could be bothered to find and paint up the minitures he owns) an was rather annoyed (and i mean annoyed) about the close combat potential of Khorne or all the extra bonuses i could give my daemon prince. I'd better mention now that i was discussing creating this army and the strop he got into had to be seen to be believed (its lucky we're good friends).
Thinking about this got me wondering what are other gamers pet hates, what about rules lawering, bad in itself, but being rules lawered by someone with only a partial painted army ( i have nothing against unpainted armies i am a slow painter myself the one thing i hate is a rules lawer)
Why do you people always do this? WHY!?
Next time you feel like ranting about...ANYTHING.

Leave the modding to the mods
I'm not 'modding'.
I'M annoyed by people always complaining about a cheater/bad sportsman/GW price hike. It really gets at me to even see the title when I click 'New Posts'...
Hmmm seems like someone has found a subject he likes to rant on may I humbly remind him of some words a wise man once saidOriginally Posted by GamesmasterZ
I am pretty mellow when it comes to gaming, its for fun so its good to know who your opponent is, I play against my brothers mainly. One of them loves to play to win, I don't mean that he gets annoyed if he loses but he sees the game as a WAR game (and it is) so he is in it to win, thats fine because then I can take the same attidute we both pick an army to annalihate the enemy (Some would call these armies cheese but anyway) and its great fun taking chunks out of each others army.
As for my other brother he prefers campaigns and narratives to go with the battle which is also great then you can take themed armies and see what happens.
Probably my biggest pet hate is cheating when making an army list. In my mind there is no such thing as Cheese as long as it is legal, but if it goes over the points or you start choosing things you aren't allowed that winds me up a bit. (unless it has been agreed before hand of course). I guess its because otherwise it just becomes an excercise in dice rolling.
Agree wit ya 100%. I play Skaven, and nobody has ever accused my army of being cheesy, but I am sick to death of hearing about how broken Skaven is. Heck, I've played against a supposedly "cheesy" Skaven army ... and lost! Big deal! I had fun, he had fun, we all had fun. Done and done. Now I can work to figure out how to beat him.Originally Posted by Berny Mac
Stop whining about cheese and change your tactics.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

People like gamesmasterz another one of my pet hates you didn't have to read this thread if you don't like it that ain't my problem, so why don't you just go away and find something else to bleat about.
I think this is a bit ironic for gamemasterz

Anywho, onto topic. The thing that peeves me the most about wargaming is the scrap who will write or bring different armies or list that are tailored to beat my army once he finds out what I'm playing.
ie, He'll normally have missile launchers, lascannons and meltaguns in abbundance in a marine army, but as soon as he hears I'm playing my Dark Eldar, suddenly, the heaviest weapon he's got is autocannons, and he's got a lot of them.
Or if I decide to bring my Guard/Tau on a Saturday, he'll suddenly have two jump pack squads led by chaplains and very little in the way of heavy armored vehicles.
I don't mind tailored lists, but tailoring on the spot once you know what you're going against is just unsportsmanlike in my opinion.

General tailoring knowing your playing guard and so picking certain troop choices is fair enough it gets nearer to cheating if he knows what your exact army will be and then picks his armylist.
