    That really boils my blood, on a server where it is a rule that you can attack the uncap I don't have problem with it, where it isn't then if you cant play by the rules then you deserve all the abuse and kickvotes you get.

    Added to this, when a kickvote is started against the offending player, people vote in favour for them to stay!!!!:w

    Just because they have the highest score on the team..and no one wants to get rid of their highest scoring player...that really makes me red and a good add on Venkman.

    Unless otherwise stated...attack on the uncap for any reason should be against the rules..its common sense..its an unspoken rule..basically if they wanted you to attack it..they would put a mark on your map that says "Attack And Capture Here" not a picture with a cross through the middle.

    What grinds me (all my own fault), when I throw a grenade in BFBC2 and it bounces off something and don't notice that it lands at your feet. BOOOM **
    I also get cramps in my mouse hand because of this... or that could be from banging the desk out of frustration.:D

    what grinds my gear is that the biggest thing they had at E3 this year was a DDR game and a petting zoo game...
    honestly, if you're gonna make a motion controlled gaming system, the least you could do is throw in some guns and explosives!!!!

    oh and anyone notice how the new medal of honor looks ridiculously similar to CoD... with the same flashing red screen when you get shot and all...

    yeah thats true but a flashing BLUE screen would seem a tad weird..unless you were playing aliens vs predator :p
    what grinds my gears is using the mortar strike in bfbc2 and aiming at a big group of enemies..then watch it get glitched on the little bush in front of you and kill you instead.

    What grinds my gears - is people Mortaring the base respawn in MoH Beta. Such an annoying thing.

    You need to increase the levels of calcium(dairy certain vegies), magnesium(cant remember) and potassium(bananas!!!) in your diet, alternatively you could take a multivitamin.

    You know we have entered the world of wonderment when gamers can pop a pill, eat a banana and somehow become super gamers :p

    What grinds my gears today is having some guy from the electric company come down to fix a power pole (and how this happens i dont know) and then he himself..crashes into said power pole..there goes my internet for a week..thank god for neighbours wireless

    Bringing this back after a 2 year absence, little bit older, little bit wiser and quite a lot more things grinding my gears!

    What grinds my gears...Playing a really good game, getting a really high score..then having the server go down and your score not saving. :mad:

    Good to be back Ned,

    I dropped off the map after my old computer died but now im back expanding my horizons by playing games on the console as well as the new laptop :p

    All new, all fresh..which brings me to my grind for the day...Black ops 2..they are experimenting with the future (a la Battlefield 2142) and yet people are complaining about this because they dont want to do near future sci-fi! I'm sorry these are the same people who claimed they didnt like modern warfare 3 because it was just a copy and paste of mw2 and nothing new..then when treyarch try something new they get the same moans and groans that its not what people want..MAKE UP YOUR MINDS!!:mad::mad::mad:

    You kn what grinds my gears, people who are currently playing ARMA II's DayZ mod will understand, spending around 15 minutes to get into a server and then going "yeah gonna kill some zombies" getting stik on the "waiting for server response" section for half an hour!!
