I'm "the whore" type cause i call the hog nearly everytime :D
the other types are not really fitting to me,sure i was some of them once or twice,but not permanent.

I had a friend who was 100% "the vanisher",we invited him,he talked with us,game started,he was AFK :x
was sooo annoying.

OK so this happened last night and I won't name names. 3 of us are playing swat. We are having one of those great runs like 11 of 12 games were won. At the end of a game some one on my friends list automatically joins the party... like they were eager to play with us right. They immidialty start trying to ask us to stop the countdown so he/she could invite others. The rest of us are just silent not because we don't li the said person who joined or who they were wanting to invite, but because we knew it would be the end of our swat pilaging. We were soon locked into a game and such said person starts groaning about "oh I don't like swat". IF YOU DID'NT WANT TO JOIN OUR GAME THEN WHY DID YOU. There is a reason why there are multiple options one being join player the other being invite player. Don't party bomb us to go play something else, then complain about what we're playing. It clearly states what game type we're playing in. If I get invited I know I might be playing any kind of game type. But if I choose to join up with a team who is already in game I know what I am going be playing before I get in there.

Still I enjoy playing withsuch player regardless, and by the way I like your inclimate weather :D

I know the feeling, Solo. Here's my solutions to that issue.

  1. Set Party to Invite only
  2. Set party max to the team size of the playlist you're in (8 for BTB, 6 for Invasion/DLC, 4 for SWAT)
  3. When they join, reiterate that you're playing the playlist you're in.

Sometimes, we're too polite for our own good. If you don't wanna change playlists, don't let them invite more people, and say you were just trying to play SWAT. If they don't like SWAT, give them the option to bail. Everyone will be happier in the long run.

I do the Officer and the Griever from time to time but mostly, if I'm a bad party member I tend to be one of the following:

The Under Achiever - Assigned a role and accepts it gladly but somehow always manages to fail leaving the enemy one shot on their X, usually with a power weapon or 10 skulls...
The Shenani-Gunn - (a Variation of a Mudkip) Herps/Derps with Armor Lock, Bubble Shield, or any other AA that annoys their teammates and contributes little to the team. However, the Shenani-Gunn does tend to draw the enemies attention and can, at times, go positive in spite of not wearing his or her try hard pants. (Side seat Plasma Launcher anyone?)

=elitist, thief, betrayer, and rouge. At the end of Halo 3 i was the ULTIMATE destroyer... lol

elitist- i really enjoy playing alone, so if I'm getting wrecked because I can't fit in with a party (not necessarily losing games) I respectfully dip out and go play invasion.

Betrayer- Sarge and Pilot are my two favorite peeps to play halo with, if I get an invite or they get online, I usually go play with them...

thief- not even gonna justify it...my bad..

Rouge- I just do not like hemorrhage. I vote for maps I can actually play, much to the distress of hog lovers everywhere....
If you think we're a rolling double kill.. come get it.

You described a lot of different behaviors there.

I think you need one more though:

The Breather: This person breathes.

Occasionally I'm "The Griever" because you have no control over whether someone accepts an invite. Your party is down a man and they want one more, you say "I might have someone", invite said someone, and then that someone (not you) decides whether or not to accept. If they decline YOU look like the ass.

Not a lot of these describe me in a party. IRL, I'm definitely an officer; I boss people around to fix mistakes in order to try to make things work, and forget to commend them for what they did right. :(

In the party, most of the time I'm "The Silent"; I don't say much, 'cause I don't have much to contribute to the conversation. I think I will add one more that I am, though:

The Fool: Tries to make jokes to get laughs, but the jokes fail and just annoy everyone. ::FAIL::

I have a hard time figuring out which one that doesn't describe me. Oh, BTB, what have you done to me...
