10 things that annoy me when playing with new players


Recommended Posts

What are ten things that annoy you when you join a zombies game especially with a player that you meet first time. Not necessarily a random lobby.

Here are mine.

1. When he/she kills my zombies that I am trying to make points of. I don't care if its an untouched zombie but if it's something that I used my pistol ammo to get hit marker points and then I want to melee them for a perfect 250point kill they just steal it.

2. When he/she gets a drop without announcing. But this is a very common case.

Max ammo: You can save a clip.

2x: If end of the round, I would save it and use it next round whenever possible.

instant-kill: same as x

Nuke: wait till end of round

Fire sale: wait until you inform da player and he is at a good box position

Carpenter: Make sure to avoid those for quicker spawn

3. When I go for the box, I don't like being followed or when someone boxes right after I do. I always ask them to either go first or wait until I am finished using box. This really pisses me off. Because I give up my good guns trying to get a gun that I need to so we don't have to wait until the gun is back in the box. I normally pick up what it gives me. But when other players use the box they waste so much time and to wait until they get weapon of their choice. I understand sometimes if you don't have enough time its inevitable to wait until you get a right gun.

4. Some people just don't get the color priorities. No matter how much I explain them they don't care. For example I tell them to please hold the crawler away from me because I am white labelled player and would have priority of being attracted by zombies than any other colored player. It's simple, white, blue, yellow and green with Green player getting least attraction that he/she is pretty vulnerable to zombies thus can take up difficult positions which white or blue player cannot.

5. When I tell them something from experience they just think I am commanding them, and they start telling me stories about how far they made it to and what their high rounds are, and that they are better player than I am. This just makes me wanna troll them.

Also when I ask white labelled player to train they often ignore it. They are too worried about shooting zombies and making points instead of training them. Some green player get offended when I have white /blue players training and they simply tell the color priority is nothing but bs. I let them do what they want to and once they get double back by zombies, they get it.

6. Reviving: Okay its simple, when you come to revive me try not kill any zombies. I know you want to take revenge but your priority is to get the other player up before. Even after reviving they have no sense of holding the zombies until the other player waits to get his/her perks and get set up.

7. Leaving crawlers at end of round: I only ask for crawlers when its end of round. Call me whatever but you don't need a crawler to hit the box at end of each round or to unlock pap room in ascension. If you are half decent at this game and don't care about hogging box for good guns right away when game starts this should be piece of cake. Be a team player.

8. Rage Quit: No.1 on my list is this. People often leave the game when they go down in middle of challenges. Yes, this happens to most good people and they rage quit, I ask their friends why they did that, and they simply tell me it's "Game over for him", they went down. Really? What about rest? What about the 4player challenge? Some People are so clever to unplug their modem or source of internet to trick their friends into thinking that there is a connection interruption or they got kicked out.

9. Lag: I understand every time you host you have good connection than other players in lobby. But people fail to realize that even the host himself CAN lag IF other players in the lobby have shitty/unstable internet. Yes even on 4 bars. Another misconception that most people have is 4 bar connection is flawless, NO. A 4 bar can lag you to death if it is unstable meaning switching from 3-4. Even a solid 3 bar can give you insane lag sometimes. This happens mostly when non-host players have too much load on their connection or if they are using a wireless. It's not always host's fault.

10. Console/ Frame lag vs Internet Lag: Most people that don't play co-op with more than 2 players just don't believe that there is any such thing as frame lag. Last time I told someone that it is hard to get past 30+ because of frame lag they laughed at me and said no, there is no such thing. They told me it's the internet lag and they have never seen anything like this before. Okay so console lag is something that you face when there is too much going on in the game, let's say someone is shooting raygun, thundergun, someone throwing grenades, someone throwing gersches, using traps, 100's of stacked claymores....etc this can pretty much give us frame lag/console lag and also terminate the game with "g-spawn error". Most times when there is frame/console lag you go down before you know you were hit, just like internet lag.

Bonus: When I ask people what they want to play, they always say anything really. And some people say regular game or a high round game. No, please tell me a target round so at least if you want to do a "for laugh game", I know I am not wasting my time here. Most people don't realise that other player are only there to spend limited time with them and to see if they socialize/click with them. They are not going to do an all-nighter if they don't want to. It's always good to know or plan something ahead before you start a game. If you want to a high round game inform ahead what round you like to reach so they can reserve time.

More Bonuses (Last one): Sometimes When I play zombies, I am too tired from work and daily crap so I just wanna kick it and not use mic, if I don't pay attention to your personal stories, may be its time to stop talking. You don't need to ask me who I would choose between Scarlett Johanssen or Jessica Alba to date unless you are Jay. I'd say Both.

Note: Please note that I did not mean to point fingers at anyone by making this thread. I thought this would bring some proper zombie slaying etiquette but keep in mind that these are just my opinions.

Happy Slaying.

Mine are similar to yours, but I do understand we are at the minority here.

I do apologize for poor internet issues, last night and during the Der Riese challenge few nights back. During the Der Riese challenge I lagged so much it was insane. Although my connection was good.

I hate carpenter when training near Windows. I lost count how many times I fuck someone for taking carpenter or board windows when running Thompson in Der Riese.

I hate long talkers. I know you have a mike but please refrain. Especially music. Who the fuck turns on mike, not say one word but music the whole time?

I hate guys/teams that you meet in random lobbies that make up the strategy already and expect you to cooperate in game. No fucking way, tell me before game starts so I can decide leave or stay. Don't tell me on round ten after I have a great start that you want to do xxx and want me to cooperate. Especially glitchers, warn someone you are cheating, so we can choose to avoid or part take in your performance enhancing adventure.

I hate kill thieves. Come on, if I'm standing two feet away and do not need help in the point building stages LEAVE MY POINTS AWAY. After 10 its ok, its anyone's playing field.

That all I have for now. Too angry to think.

BTW had a game last night with other members of CODZ and someone asked me who i was. I said Jay and they had no idea who I was. With that in mind i vow to post 15 times a day to increase my street cred.

Pre round 10? I take the Carpenter. I don't care about slower spawns--I want the free 200 points! But after that, yeah, I don't take em. A Carpenter when running the alley on Kino is no fun.

I don't really have many pet peeves. Yeah, I'm not a fan of the usual stuff (ie kill stealing early on, rage quitting, etc.) but there's only one thing a few things I can think up off the top of my head that really grind my gears.

1. Don't come through my kiting spot without giving me fair warning.

This is just common sense, people. Especially if I'm green and he's white or blue. OOOOH that just pisses me off. Not only does it take my zombies, but it's putting both of us at risk by running wildly through a pack of zombies like a chicken with its head cut off. If you go down in my kiting area, tough luck. Maybe you'll have learned your lesson by the time you respawn.

2. Opening doors at inopportune times

This is mainly for random games, but it applies in private matches as well. For co op on CotD, I like camping at the top of the boat. It's not that uncommon of a strategy and a great way to build up points and also give you more freedom to roam around the map than going sickle (once you go down the slide, you're stuck there until you open a door). But camping at the top of the boat doesn't work with the power door open. And yet, 75% of the time, someone opens up the door. STUPID STUPID STUPID.

3. Being dumb on Moon (and Call of the Dead [and Ascension]

Don't run a train in NML when there's 4 people in the lobby. Don't throw nades in the labs/spawn. Don't pick up the hacker if you're not willing to protect the base from the excavators. Don't throw Gersches at the astronaut. Don't piss of George. Don't open up both doors at the spawn on Ascension. Just common sense stuff on these map specific things. Come on people!

EVERYTHING Way2g00 said! Pinpointed a lot of annoying things in random games that i'm sure all of us have experienced at some point or another :/

But even if I find the most annoying people to play with in the world who do a majority of these things on a daily basis, I still play respectfully. I still go for revives like a bat outta hell, I still keep that crawler at the end of the round, I still escort downed players to their perks even after being trash talked for 25 rounds. This is for a few reasons:

#1 - Because it's simply the right thing to do. Trolling people back and holding grudges isn't worth the effort for the couple hours that game will last.

#2 - Because I like to think that playing the way I do will teach others how to play the same. Monkey see, monkey do.

#3 - Because players like us who understand the game in ways that average everyday randoms don't can probably play the game to any situation. (I.E. - letting the other players decide which doors to open and what spots to train won't affect the way we play our game.)

While a lot of these things are annoying, they don't make the game impossible to play. Think about it, if every single game you played went exactly the way you wanted it, how much variation and fun would you have in it? I think of little things like players taking my kills and opening up the wrong doors as small challenges that keep the game fun :)

I guess my message here is even though there are frustrating people out there to play with, we should still be calm and courteous :)

I despise players who talk down to you, I mean on Shi No Numa, I bought the Arisaka, they called me a noob... which I'm not, I can get into the mid-thirties on a good game on most maps, and you may wonder why i bought it. I find it useful for headshots. And then in this game, the so called 'noob' had the least downs, and I think most revives, thats the things no matter how disrespectful you are to me, i will help you or guide you. I'm a very forgiving person.

I also hate on Der Riese if in the 1-5 rounds when dreaded double hit happens, I revive that person, after all it happens, I head back to my window, to find somone hoying grenades and generally stealing my kills. It is so annoying.

There's one thing you must always remember though before complaiing: If you don't tell them, how can you blame them for doing these things? :3

I always make sure people tell me or fellow players if they want us to (or not to) do something :D When they still do it, then its understandable of course to get annoyed :P

I was playing on "Five" the other night with two friends. Not complete noobs, but less experienced than I. One of them died at about round 20 or so. The other said, "OK. I'll spawn you in upstairs, next to the box." And I said, "OR we spawn him in next to the MP5k, so he'll be sure to get a good weapon for point gaining and then he can run right down the stairs and grab Jugg." Guess which idea they went for :roll:

Random players are complete idiots 90% of the time. At least on PSN. They're either little kids who shouldn't be playing the game, or assholes. Both of them don't listen to what I'm saying and do the most stupid things you can imagine. They usually act like they know how to play the game (if they have a mic on) but they can't even handle the first dog round on Kino. They don't open doors and they don't revive anyone, but when they go down they either rage quit when they're on the ground (because it clearly wasn't their own fault they got trapped in a corner) or rage quit when they die (because it's clearly my fault for not reviving them). I stopped playing with randoms a long time ago because they always ruin it, even if I'm being a team player. I only play with friends. If I ever decide to play with randoms again I'll troll the shit out them because I just don't care anymore.

There are numerous annoyances in zombies, which mostly happen only when you play with people found through matchmaking.

-Stealing your kills in first room

-People not opening doors

-Hugging box when it has been found, usually they just refuse to buy any wall gun/Juggernog, just Bcuz i can haz raygun!!!!!!!11!!

-When electricity has turned on and way to Juggernog is open, they still refuse to buy it...

-In Kino, when your ready to go to Pack-A-Punch, its all linked and round has started, I don't want to go there alone because they might want to come with me as well, but no they still aren't coming to teleporter so I'm forced to go alone :roll:

-Not protecting Juggernog in Ascension from Space Monkeys because they are busy on shielding PhD/other less useful perk

-People going down in early few rounds, I consider that to be marker saying "You will have alot work on reviving them this game"

-Not reviving someone whos downed while they are slaying zombies next to him and I'm coming from other side of map

-Ragequitting because of getting downed/dying

-Mates who dash for power ups, for example Max Ammo after dogs/monkeys just because they have weapons already reloaded, screw other 3 players...

For Box huggers I have solved problem. Just throw grenades on box slowly when they open it, they either go down by trying to throw it back -> I wait until weapon is gone and then revive, or they just can not pick that weapon from box. Maybe that teaches them to get first wall weapon and/or Sickle/Jugg before spamming box.

And of course to people calling themselves pros at zombies and yelling at others when they don't do what he wants(most of time its something idiotic), get good lesson when I revive them again and again, they will probably go quiet at this time. This is extremely fun when you have Quick Revive + Jugg and they happened to get bad weapons from box and start to going down... fun begins 8-)

But best advice you can do to them is being good and helpful to them and ignoring their lack of skill and/or stupid words.

Famous quotes from the noobs CODZ loves to hate:

1. Come and revive me I have a raygun!!! If you don't get me I'm ending the game!

3. Why shouldn't I just buy an olympia on round one? It's so good!

4. Oh sorry, you should have told me you hadn't reloaded your thundergun before i got that max ammo, even though you were on the other side of the map!

5. Shut up and stop telling me all of your crappy "trains", I am really good! I've made it all the way to round 19!

6. Hey, go link the teleporter, I'll wait in it for you. *bee-bump* JK! YOLO! *BZZZZTTT* hey, why did you go down noob!

7. Hey if you shoot 4 times and spin around you get the thundergun first try! WELL THEN YOU DID IT WRONG BITCH!

9. Hey dive on me so we both die you get free max ammo!

10. I am not reviving you bitch, just for stealing my thundergun! It WAS mine! I mean, you saw me spin the box 40 times while you got it first try! It's only fair you give it up!

17. What is up with those dumb soda machines?

18. Ha! I got the raygun! No need to conserve the most valuable ammo in the freaking game, let's just fire four mags in a circle out of excitement!

I'm positive that the people I play with are in some kind of cult that worship the Mystery Box. I think I've been able to learn some rules through observation.

THESE ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF THE ALMIGHTY MYSTERY BOX.

1: Thou shalt not open any doors unless I await you.

2: Thou shalt worship me, and only me, as the key to your victory. These beings known as "Perks" and "strategies" are false prophets, and following them can only lead to your destruction.

3: Thou shalt bestow all points upon me, for by this tribute your faith in me is proven.

4: Those who deny me shalt not be revived.

5: Giving points unto other beings, such as the False Prophets, shall lead to your destruction.

6: My bounty is plenty, give unto me any weapons you do not desire, for you will surely get a better one next time.

7: Follow me, and only me, wherever I may roam.

8: And unto those who have been overtaken, and are not followers of the Almighty Box, who have refused it's ominescence and Forsaken themselves in doing so, offer no help, and no pity.

9: Thou shalt spin around three times, dive to prone and shoot all four corners.

10: He totally stole that Wundergun from you.

I know we can't give brains anymore, but I'm gonna give you six and a half anyways [brains]

I realize it's impossible to get into a good game with randoms. That's why, I play with randoms as a challenge. Just to see how far I can carry the team.

Last week I got into a game with three other people. Only one had his mic in (I didn't have mine in), and he could not have been more than nine years old. He was obviously a member of this Almighty Box cult. He kept going on about getting the Ray Gun, then freaked out when one of our teammates got it. The teammate with the Ray Gun went down, so I went to revive him, and the kid with the mic said "NO, DONT REVIVE HIM, HE HAZ THE RAY GUN!!!11!1"

And then I performed one of the most well-deserved facepalms of all time.

And thou shall NEVER receive the thundergun, unless you pay a proper tribute of all of your remaining points, to the third power. Then shall your sins be forgiven, and thou shalt be forever freed from the false prophets in all their terror.

By the way, Tankeo, you should start a community thread where people add on to passages of the mystery box cultists bible! Put it in the off topic or forum games sections. I would live on that shit!
