    On topic (I witnessed this today);
    Wasteful people.
    I hate it when people drop things that can be traded, like dyes. They could of given it to a friend or something but they dropped it instead.

    I hear you but it's not like they can't get more of an item. It is just pixels after all. Also they might not deem the item worth the time and effort to set up a shop to sell it. Like all those remote coupons people can get from the daily advanced play thingy. Or cheapo accessories that only sell for 1k if you are lucky. And some people might not have any friends to give them to.

    Also it annoys me that dying is a gated thing. In other MMOs I've played, you just went to a tailor and picked the colors you wanted on your outfit. The end. None of this trying to find enough of the same color dyes to make your outfit match.
    It would be so much better if untradeable garbage didn't sit there on the ground for days (like an item with an NPC value of 10 million or something). They should have an NPC value of 0 so they despawn in a reasonable amount of time. ~ Take for example the ocean of Combo Cards in Dunbarton Square.

    I thought the Combo card graveyard was in protest of how utterly insane the random cards are, thus making them actually worthless.

    Just a few things:
    - Gacha sellers that try to get the same price that were around when the item arrived for the first time in the game. I understand the desire to get the max out of it, but really asking a huge price when the item itself is aleady sold for half his price, makes me wonder why they try sooo hard (and maybe this is why I don't buy gachas?)
    This one makes me really difficult to not contact that person, as I deem it a petty try-hard, but that would be extremely disrespectful as this is my personal view of it and I have no rights to say anything to anyone related to how they want to play their game and sell their things. I'll just avoid them if they sell something I'm interested in, hoping them good luck on the sale.
    - People spamming the chat because they want to "pvp" with you, you refuse and they get mad.
    There's a reason I have 0 pvp battles: I don't like pvp, I play MMOs to have people to talk to, not to fight with. I never really cared as I don't think Mabinogi is based only on getting stronger and stronger and beat players just to show them they're stronger. I understand asking just in case, but insisting and being mad at me because I gently refused isn't going to be help.

    People who hate on the new dungeons way too hard, old dungeons were the stupidest most pointless and completely irrelevant thing...
    Wasn't this due to the fact they revamped the dungeons without changing the CP of the mobs inside them? People complained a lot about being stomped by a "weakest" rat or something.

    Scumbag bullies that come into an area where you are skill training, steal a bunch of your kills, then demand that YOU cc to cater to them, then follow you when you cc anyways so they can continue to kill steal you.
    Oh, I thought I was only unlucky to have found someone that was bored/angry/needed to vent and actually decided to use me as a punch bag, following me. In the end I just stopped doing whatever I was doing and ran away.

    While we're on the topic, another thing that annoys me is how guild chat, notes, and whisper all ignore blacklist. How is that feature supposed to prevent harassment when it doesn't block the majority of the games communication channels?
    This was a real hussle for me in the early years of playing as I found someone that really liked to tease me, bully me and insult me, all while the whole guild laughed at it and tossed it aside as "simple joking around" when I complained. After a few months, I changed guild and after X time, some old friend from the guild told me he was kicked out of the guild because of bullying and harassing (after "losing" me, he took it with every other player in the guild).

    Exactly. 'Weakest' enemies shouldn't hit me like trucks. CP was made useless in that update.

    IMO, they should dump the whole VIP/Premium system or whatever they call it, OR massively update it ALREADY.
    There is many features in the VIP/Premium system that should really be available for the public, offline housing being one of them.
    They already milk the players enough with gachas anyway.
    ...
    I feel like the Premium system is a holdover from the older days where the game was pseudo-subscription (pre-G4 didn't have free rebirths among other things). Anyways...

    It looks like the game finally bypasses nagle, or I just have a decently low ping, so that's a plus.
    -Dunbarton is littered with Combo Cards. It's insane.
    -Obsolete old content. Why even bother running the dungeons outside of AR/Thunder/IS/FB pages and story missions? Otherwise, it's a waste of time, or worse, a complete money sink if you aren't very good. In fact, I don't see people running SMs for Shadow Wizard anymore, when that used to be decent money. PS: now that I think about it, it's more economical to buy the AR/Thunder/IS/FB pages when you think of time vs. earning payoff.
    -Somewhat of a nostalgia point: no active EvG in Dunby anymore. Granted, it was a massive money pit, but it was fun.
    -Dead zones. Somewhat related to the obsolete content. You can go pretty far without ever seeing someone, unless it's some sort of hub.

    The game does not "finally" bypass Nagle. It doesn't bypass it all. - If you have better ping; blame your ISP. :)

    We still have to disable Nagle's Algorithm manually - no TCP_NODELAY here -- nope, not on this ancient game ..

    If you don't like the game and its "obsolete" content; there is nothing stopping you from playing another. :)

    It's one thing to be annoyed about something;.. It's another to be wrong about something you find annoying.

    What. That shouldn't happen if you have armor and the mastery...

    So what if I'm not strong? (Die in Alby Adv.) By a Weak enemy, I believe.. Wait.. that's not the point.
    I've been on weaker characters, easily the same level as most newbies, and seen Weakest/Weak enemies that should be labeled at least Strong or Awful. Am I seriously the only one who has been noticing this?

    It's really only two things:

    1. People who are trolls, and that do not leave you alone even when you blacklist them. I hate it when people just cause trouble for the heck of it, what's the point of ruining the game for someone?

    2. Getting stuck when I use the Focused Fist skill -3-

    Things that annoy me?

    - Graphics (targeted too much to weeaboos.)
    - Unwillingness to fix issues, no matter how trivial the solution is.
    - Lag created by old programming paradigms and poor design decisions, with no attempts to update.

    Mabinogi without "weeb" graphics would just be... Vindictus. I think Mabinogi 2 (which I don't think exists anymore) did the same, and never caught on as a result.

    Aside from 7daystodie which I'm only interested in because roosterteeth plays it from time to time, I mostly distill modern, unstylized graphics into two categories. Realistic, or " bad artist trying to replicate cryengine graphics in a game with terrible assets " . Realism is really starting to bore me.

    Keep the faith though! I'm glad there are (still) people in this world who aren't afraid to openly hate things ^_^

    This ^^^. I just don't like that too realistic graphics. My eyes get tired of them too fast and also anime would look too weird in realistic graphics. Just my thought.

    I completely agree about the lack of an auction house. I'm willing to tolerate a lot of this game's outdated features but it really needs to get with the times as far as player trading goes. It's at the point where I throw out a lot of stuff simply because the hassle in selling it isn't worth my time.

    Enemies who cast fireball. I play a really tanky giant who laughs off most enemy attacks, even bosses. But one minion whips out fireball and I fold like a lawn chair. In fact, that's a problem in general. Everything in this game either can't touch me or kills me instantly. Nothing in between.

    The cooking dungeon. I actually grinded adventurer seals to bypass it. I hate it that much.

    I am cursed when it comes to guilds and finding friends. Every time I join a guild, it dies. Every time I make a friend, I never see them again.

    The musical direction of more recent generations. I mean, the orchestral stuff isn't bad, it just feels kind of generic and same-y after a while. Bring back the synth and electric guitars. Give us more of the bouncy energy of the Gairech Hills theme or the face-melting intensity of the G1 Final Boss theme. :D
