New to these forums ^^, so if I do something wrong I'm sorry, I can't find the terms and conditions of posting here, if there is one. Anyhow, seeing as how this is a great topic to start, why not. Sad I didn't get listed at all though (as a good guy anyhow) lmao
Yes, Vex is someone with attitude problems, and can't really face what's happening. Sorry if anyone knows him or 'thinks he's just a great, misunderstood guy,' but, plainly put, he's annoying and really knows how to make you mad.
I am the one he was insulting as aforementioned by Shini. I don't blame your friend really, it was kinda my fault that I had to mention Vex -.-; Here's the story (sorry if this will get a little long, and it's been a while so I'm just recalling):
The pt was doing fine in CN, everyone was doing their jobs OK, and everything was going smoothly, especially considering the setup was 2 SMNs, a BLM, a NIN, and 2 MNKs, I was MNK, he was SMN. Anywho, we had one little mishaps, can't recall exactly what happened, but Vex ended up dying. Something weird with hate during a Musshu-w/e scorpion fight, I believe the NIN couldn't get off Blink and therefore got knocked around compulsively. So Vex healed him, and the mob ran at him, NIN didn't get voke off in time, one attack he was gone. Now, I can understand he was mad, and I thought he was cool because he saved the NIN, but the streamline of swears and insults ticked us all off, taking it like a 3 year old, that's what really turns you off. It wasn't entirely the NIN's fault, but Vex kept yelling at him. Everyone just sits there (well I imagine), and tell him to chill.
Another hour in, we're going ok, Vex hits lvl. Then THIS happens (sonething like this probably happens to a lot of people): we pick up an Exoray Mold. We all go through it and lot, Vex so far is winning. I lot and end up with a 900 something higher than his lot, everyone knows I'm gonna probably win. Vex threatens to kick me, so I just pass on it, next guy does too, and he gets mold. A little after, the NIN DIES. What does he do now? He blames the other SMN for not saving him. I'm thinking "wtf.. he likes to blame other people.." I start talking to my LS about this guy and sure enough it turns out we all have some bad recollection of this person. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure he could be a half-decent person (maybe) in real life or once you get to know him, but not in parties, and he doesn't lay off.
Anyhow, then the whole MPK thing starts happening (don't even know what it stands for). I already saw it coming because I was out helping to pull, and I start panicking, telling everyone to get the hell outta the Secret Room. Vex sits there, for w/e reason, and attempts to fight one of the scorpions, we all join in. He ends up dying reason being the other mobs in the room, we're not sorry, but we say it. Actually, we all die so what am I saying lol (Thanks Terria and the whm in the other pt next to us at the time for raising) He screams at us shouting wth we were doing, moreover the NIN, who was busy avoiding the trained mobs. We all tell him "getting away from the godamn mobs that we told you about 5 minutes before were coming." He ditches us, pt disbands. I think it's over, but no, he has to start /telling me crap. He says something like "sorry I left, but that NIN was really annoying me." Remember, folks, what's really going on....... I don't want to start anything with him, so I say w/e. Then all of a sudden he gets in my face (not literally), and says "well unless you're gonna be on his side," without all the explicit words. I tell him to chill, but NOW he starts the 'gimped' thing. He calls me gimped because I subbed THF for the pt. Now I'm not an expert on what's the best sub for MNK, but THF isn't bad. Point is, why the heck is he telling what to do? He told me I wasn't hitting for as much as the other MNK, and I admit it. However, he's a godamn Elvaan with WAR sub and 2 lvls higher. He still keeps going on and on, and I'm relaying all this to my LS. Unexpectedly, they told him off for me (sorry I can't defend myself u.u), and he says he called GM on them for harassment...... I say some nasty words back at him and immediately /blist him. And that's the story.
There was a reencounter when I died in Sauromugue by a Tabar Beak and someone kindly enough shouted a raise for me, and Vex ran to me. I don't know what he MIGHT've said, I blisted him afterall >.>
Anyway I thinkz..... it's not nice to really judge someone on just one action, especially if they're sorry for it (doesn't apply to Vex -.-;). I saw some names on the bad list that I kinda knew and thought how in the world they ended up there lol I partied with RooRoobear several times in CN and Citadel and he was cool, made a few mistakes and had completely weird suggestions IMO, but we all do -.- Kinda the same with Reso. I heard a lotta bad things about him, even though at the time I was already his friend ^^ It all started when I loaned him 1k O_o And I kept tabs on him and somehow it all became history (I don't really care for 1k anyway lol). He can really rub it in my face how he gets more pts than me though lol.
I dunno the Pergo thing, it's all a matter of who's on who's side and first encounters. I mean I'd be mad too if he stole something from me, but always try to see from the other guys' eyes. Now, if he's just a meanie and didn't apologize, that's different... Anyhow, just a game and not like I have a real grudge against anyone (cept Vex, quit harassing me >.<). Just listen and don't do anything to upset this guy and you're golden.
Again, sorry for the long post lol. Anywho, most of the GOOD guys and girls on my list have already been mentioned, whether they're awesome in parties or just great people to talk to, a shout out to you all! Heck some of them posted here in this forum ^^
*Shimei - Fun to be with, can relate a bit, a little... I dunno, twitchy at things? But for good reasons at least. A great help when I need it most..
*Terria - Same as above lol
Kasume - I dunno, you're friendly O_o
Arani (I get that right?) - Same

*Hemlocke - Too smart! And to top it off you always back Shimei up with that deadly scythe of yours >.>
*Miols - If you ever come back ; ; I didn't really know you, but you helped me out a lot and the LS sure got a kick outta you sometimes.
I KNOW that's probably only like .0001% of the list so sorry lol, I'll remember and mention you most notables as I see fit when I get some sleep after hunting Lizzy -.- Btw, I saw Eka while I was out there lol, funny guy. I was shouting about the Wayward Worms and said "ooh now I know where these guys come from" (which btw is a little annoying part of the new events taking place, where you hunt for Overturned Soils before the gobs on chocobos do and grab the cards (unsure the purpose atm), these will Bindga you ; ; Got some screens of them gobbies lol ^^), and he (or is he a she? btw) said this little funny thing, you can imagine. Yeah, props to Sanghi and Vortan for help with Genkai items and pokes to Fask for safe journeys.... yeah I think that's it lol
