I have one acquaintance who likes to start every conversation with an in game achievement that I couldn't care less about. I don't know why this bothers me so much, I think it's simply an incompatibility in our personalities. One issue in particular that annoys me is he is a 45 CON, and claims to be completely oblivious to the fact that the way he leveled could very well get him banned. I told him about the situation and he begins acting very smug that since he didn't know it was against the rules, nothing will happen to him. I kind of hope something happens to his account, just to bring him down a peg.
At this point I should probably add this is not a real life friend, I've never met him before. It's just someone I started talking to about a month before FFXIV launched and we decided to play on the same server. So when I don't wish him the best, don't think of me as a complete jerk =p
Another group of people that tends to bother me is the 'know it all's' who actually get information wrong quite often and spread it around as fact. I see a lot of this in my linkshell right now. I also dislike people who say 'Congo rats', which I disliked back in FFXI also, but they're not quite as bad as the others. Lastly I dislike the people who take every opportunity to brag about recent accomplishments, as if their entire self worth is entwined with the success of their virtual character (Kind of like the first guy I mentioned).
So do you guys ever just have people rub you the complete wrong way in your online gaming experiences? Do you tend to just ignore them? Do you call them out on their BS?
