A bad habit is a negative behavior pattern. What are your bad habits when you're gaming? I'm sure everyone has at least one including me. Well, while gaming, I just hate the newbies who comes to me and bugs me then asks me for money as if I owe them in the past life! Seriously annoying. I don't care how much they need but isn't it better if you earn your own money instead of begging other people who might talk bad about you behind you? I'm not mean, they are for making my life more miserable than how it always has been. Besides ignoring newbies, I also hate them when they're asking me questionS. Note the plural form. It's okay if they ask a question, but it's NOT okay if they ask a several ANNOYING BASIC questions. Go read the F.A.Q., I'm not your walking F.A.Q.. Furthermore, I also run to the back when wars starts to avoid me being killed. Not that I'm weak, okay maybe I am, but I'm sure I'm not THAT weak. It's because I hate going back to the revival point then run to the war spot again. It takes time!! I was just saving my time .I think that's my bad habits when I was gaming! And I think I should really quit all that because it's bad, really bad. Except for the annoying newbies part, hehe.

Anyway, I've posted a topic on MMOsite forum where I wanna get opinions from the fellow MMOsiters to get more idea on this article. Click here to go to the forum thread. Sometimes, being lazy too is a bad habit. Only for sometimes because lazy is in our nature :P Some said when people asked them to craft something, they said they're busy and immediately turn on the ignore mode while some said they're the first one to charge in battles and they turned out to be the first one dead[which is why I prefer to run to the back when my hp gets low low low low]. I too, ignore my guildmates requests sometimes because it's annoying how they don't want to do it themselves and ask the others to help them instead. It's really hard to make a decision between laziness and them saying that we're not united in the guild enough. United in the guild doesn't mean the guildmate demands the other guildmate to do whatever stuffs because of unity in the guild. Bleh.
One of the worst habit is pking low levels and stealing their kills. I know they're annoying when they're asking questions. I know they always asks for money. I know they're weak but you don't have to do that to them!! No offense, but do show some seniority. I mean, it's not like you get anything from stealing their kills because they're low levels and they kill low level monsters. In the end, you get nothing. Why not be nice to those low levels who are less annoying and doesn't asks for money? ^_^ But, I will definitely pk low levels and steal their kills if they're annoying. Sorry.
Not only pking low levels and stealing their kills are bad, spending too much without thinking is bad too because you don't manage your money in games properly. When there is a promotion, you spend and spend and spend without thinking what's gonna benefit you because it's so cheap that you need to grab them so badly! I actually do this too and what happens? I got no money left in game to buy what I really really need. So, gamers, make a list and see what you really really really need and if you really really really need it, don't hesitate and buy it! If you don't, bleh, leave it. It won't do you any good also.
There are also some crazy bad habits when gaming I found when I'm google-ing. Some of them said "When someone talks to me while I'm playing then I lose or die, I shout at them or sometimes hit them for making me lose/die.", "swearing every time i get killed", "I swear when things don't go my way", etc etc. Honestly, I don't think that's a smart bad habit to do when you're being killed or you lose. Here's an equation for you.
you swear = rage/joy x headache
So what do you get at last?
NOTHING. Yes nothing.
So, don't get mad or swear when you're being killed or when you lose in the game because that's not gonna make your character revive back or it'll let you win. Best idea? Be happy about it and you'll get luck in the future! I'm not kidding you.
Since swearing or yelling isn't gonna bring you benefits, do you think throwing a fit over your controllers and keyboards will bring you any? If you think so, well, think again. Think hard. I'm sure your controller and keyboard or whatever costs money, and are you going to burn your money by throwing a tantrum over a game you lost? THINK HARD because no, I guess nobody would because it's really a waste of money if you spoil your controller or keyboard by losing a game. Why not try again harder the next time?
Best idea of stopping all these? Rehab. Nah just kidding. Go left in the picture, don't go right to the bad habits.Try to stop them because none of it will really benefit you except for the annoying newbies part. Hehe. So, think hard when you're doing something! Thanks for your time to read this article, really appreciate it ^^
