I'm usually peeved by those who reel in too much drama, behave in an immature manner, and chase around the server's population of male characters. I'm heavily peeved by a large amount of carcasses hanging around, somehow. To me, it just makes the server look polluted. Since we cannot eat more than we need like we used to be able to, it especially gets on my nerves. Don't know why--its sort of like litter in my eyes.

After multiple times of saying I don't want to do anything like that anyway she was like "Just do it anyway!" ._. Like nah. I'd rather just play the game for what it's there for. Not for mates.
I should've been there... I would be dying out of laughter...
Part of me wanted to laugh, but the other part I was like just glaring at my screen as I like flew across the map just to get it over with. Then I sat down when we were almost back so I didn't 'win.' lol.

I think most of my peeves have to do with mate beggars. Just yesterday I was in a game with SolitaryHowl while they beta tested and such. Then this Luna chick or whatever pops in and is like "Who wants to be my mate?" literally everyone was like "._. Srsly bruh?" she quickly was like "Haha just kidding." and left. Then proceeded to send me a message trying to get me to go to a private game with them. In my head I was like "Nah honey, but I will report you. c:"

Edit: Another one I have as of right now because I've run into it twice. People don't seem to understand. The emotes that aren't bowing and wagging tail DON'T HELP RALLY. They see the rest of us bowing and wagging and they sit there rolling around.

RANKS. How many times have I joined a simple wolf roleplay to find I'm taking all of my time explaining to the host how terminology such as "Alpha" and "Omega" are outdated? TOO MANY TIMES. I wish it were clearer in the game that there is no hierarchy, as I see this mistake waaaaaaaay too often!

I don't find them all too bothersome since I usually participate in semi-realistic wolf RPs where hierarchies are alright. If you're in a realistic wolf RP then I see the issue, but otherwise I think it's fine.

Something that kind of bothers me is pups (really young pups) being loners and somehow surviving. When they mention "first hunt," I imagine something like hunting grasshoppers or something. Then they go into detail about hunting elk. These pups are magical.

That or really, really lucky.

Also, yum, grasshoppers! (I'm actually terrified of grasshoppers in real life though)

I think the lack of a hierarchy only applies to classic wolf packs (a breeding pair and their offspring.)
Packs of unrelated wolves do have hierarchies, which is why the alpha terminology came from a scientist studying an artificial pack in captivity, not a natural family pack.

The unrealistic aspect of most RPs is not the alpha terminology, but the fact that unrelated wolves are forming a pack together in the wild.

A big peeve of mine is when you join a peaceful roleplay, and have a good roleplay for awhile until someone brings up a topic and everyone else on the server will stop roleplaying and just chat about that topic. Another one is when your on a XP Hunting server and nobody is hunting.
I don't like any of the Dragon, Human, or fantasy roleplays because theres usually people there who make themselves the ''special snowflake" character.

Please be aware that my opinion is not fact.

If there's something that mildly annoys or at least confuses me it's seeing all the completely-un-wolf-related rp servers or ones that aren't even canine related. I'm not judgy but I just don't understand why anyone would use a wolf game for things that aren't wolf- or canine- related. Another one is emote-spammers; it's kinda amusing if the whole group is purposely doing it just to be goofy, but when that's not the case, people that use the growl one excessively are irritating.

A 'timeless' one is people who don't appear to know how to rally and just stand there...not to be rude but there's literally a pop-up on your screen that says what key(s) to press.

The rally one is a big one for me. The system is simple. All you have to do is bow, wag, or howl twice in any combination. Just twice per wolf, but for some it's unmanageable and I'm not sure why.

I also dislike characters with mental disorders because in my experience it's usually either to cover up the fact that the person can't create an engaging character, or they want to be the center of attention.

  • When people roleplay as humans or teenagers, it makes absolutely no sense to me. Or when people make an exp farming server and just stand around chatting. Then there's people who ask you to be their mate and you're like my dude I just wanna chill.

    edit;; I also really hate when people join and purposely kill the pups, that happened in a game I was in today, my poor puppy got drowned :c

- When people are just plain rude for no apparent reason.
- When hosts try to force others to be their mates or claim that they are mates with another who clearly didn’t state they were
- When that one arrogant little person joins a pup raising server and somehow manages to begin a rp...I don’t get it, rping with pups I find is very annoying :/
- Pup killers/Trolls

Players who are extremely rude to others!! Makes me so mad.

For example, I was in a XP Hunting server and we were trying to rally. One of the players wasn't really joining in, and instead of politely asking "Hey Player x can you please join the rally?" everyone immediately starting yelling at them in all caps and threatening to kick them. I mean, who knows if that player was a newbie or a kid? I've seen this sort of thing happen on multiple occasions- players get yelled at and kicked for making mistakes and it really bothers me. If someone seems to be doing something wrong, it's not hard to politely correct them or give them some guidance.
Public games are for all ages and all experience levels. I get it can be frustrating to have players who seem inexperienced on your server or who don't do what you want but if it bothers you so much then create private servers with your friends.

Oh my gosh, the list goes on and on and seems to be getting worse.
For me, it's quite a few:

Trolls (i.e. repeated play bowing, growling, spamming of the chatbox, and followed by random silent players)
Being excessively kicked off of various servers though you've done nothing wrong
Individuals claiming an entire territory for themselves (when really it should be 2 or more)
Claiming to be 'prettier' or 'stronger' than others
RPer's who don't know/unwilling to RP in a specific RP server (don't want to or don't like it? You shouldn't have joined. Simple as that)
Vulgar/rude users, RPing or not
Restricting one's range to roam on maps
Powerplaying (excessively strong/unable to die, claiming to be 'godlike')

I have more and I can go on but I'm going to stop my list there. I've had my share of RP's both public and private and that's why I host my own private servers now, often alone.

Since I don't rp or join/make rp servers, many of those aren't a problem, but I can't stand growl-spammers, and, no offense to people who do, people who howl during rallies (as in, when the bar isn't full and few players are bowing, so the bar is increasing really slow and the timer is running out). It's like...no. Everybody bow a bunch of times to get the bar up, then y'all can howl or wag or whatever. Even more than that though, people who don't rally at all (whether on purpose or by 'not knowing'). For some stuff in the game, not knowing how or what would be an excuse, but it says the friggin key you're supposed to press at the bottom of the screen in an obvious picture of it by the rally bar.

I don't really RP in-game myself; I always join XP Hunts, so there's not much that ever goes wrong. However,
I do get a bit bothered by some things !! Like when no one's talking in-game -- I get it that we're all trying to attack the elk and some people are super shy, but it feels a bit awkward to just be playing with people who won't bother to talk to you, hehe. Also, when people decide to rally while another player is AFK and they start getting yelled at, for example, is a huge pet peeve of mine! It's just as easy to hunt down the bull elk we'd be aiming for with or without extra strength, seeing how many people are usually in XP Hunts. No reason to attack anyone about it.
