Any RPGer would probably has already know the casualties caused by status effect.

For me, I hate being confused, as my characters are quite dumb and must obviously enjoy killing themselves *_*

I have to agree with the confusion there. It is quite funny though. I also hate the petrify one, you can't move or even heal yourself, it is rather annoying, then you have to rely on another character that way. Stop is the same...
So basically any status which you cannot help yourself with.

I hate the curse status from FFX, it prevents you from using overdrives. Also silence can be pretty annoying.

The worst status effect I can think of is when your whole party goes berserk in a boss fight and you've got no way of healing them, you just have to sit back, cross your fingers and hope that the boss' HP drops to 0 before the last character's does.

I also hated certain things in the Battle Square in FF7, that halve your HP or your MP. Although that's only for one battle though, and it isn't essential for the game.

Confuse is mega annoying, especially when they go striking themself. Another annoying status effect is beserk paralyze/stop. They won't do a freaking thing and it's especially annoying when your entire party gets paralyzed with one move.

I don't know about the confuse thing, I mean one good pop from either side and they are back to normal. The ones I can't stand are the ones that paralyze your character. Every RPG has at least one of these things and they always seem to affect the worst possible target at the worst possible time...

However, Doom from the FF series it RIGHT up there. I mean what's more annoying than seeing this little clock right above your character's head telling you that if you don't kill off this monster fast you won't have a party to kill it with?

Confuse sucks. Only status effect that usually kills me. grr

01-11-2003, 12:40 AM
Any status effect that puts a counter over your head is definitly annoying. Cause then your rushing to beat the oppenent within the counter. Confuse is also so freakin annoying. Blind combined with Beserk is the most annoying status combo EVER!

01-11-2003, 01:17 AM
Oh I don't know... personally I find the whole dead status rather annoying myself.... I mean look at you... you're dead.... how annoying!

01-11-2003, 07:32 PM
Well for me it's: Petrify, sleep, silence, confuse, doom and poison. Anything that causes your team to die is pretty annoying as well, of course >_<

01-11-2003, 07:48 PM
The Confuse effect is annoying when you have to deal with all these other RPGs... Phantasy Star Online for example. You get confused and you can't walk straight, you tend to end up walking around back and forth in the same place and you'll get killed. XD

Sour Mouth: Most annoying enemy skill...EVER.

For those that don't know there is a big plant like thing in FF6 that uses this, they have a few different names but are all pretty much the same. What they do just about EVERY turn is use this accused skill. What does it do?

Gives you at least 5 status effects in the game, sometimes a party member gets them ALL.

So lets run down the list, you have an imp that has been turned to stone and paralyzed, that is asleep and cant cast spells but also is berserk so he can't do anything but attack (once you get him un-paralyzed and no longer stone) not to mention the fact that he is also confused so he will attack ANYTHING that moves and he also has doom over his head so you may heal him of everything else only to see him flop to the ground anyway, and oh, did I mention that he or she is also a zombie so you can't use heal magic on him or you will kill him... DOES IT GET ANY BETTER?!!!!

01-15-2003, 12:34 AM
I'd say the most annoying in confusion and probably petrify. Simply because they both put the character out of your control (or any control in petrify) but if your character's really powerful and it gets confused, you're in trouble. Especially when it does 9999 an attack. Pray that the character hit itself.

01-16-2003, 10:30 AM
Confusion is always bad, because you're characters turn into a bunch of dumbasses that can't tell the difference in left and right.

Petrify is always bad, because it's not something that can eventually just wear off...such as sleep or slow, which ususally eventually wears away.

For some reason....I keep thinking there was a game that had a Zombie status. Maybe I'm losing my mind.

I personally can't stand poison, just for the fact that it slowly kills off your character, and it doesn't go away without treatment. Either you wait for your character to die, or you treat it. It's annoying, really!

If you're thinking the FF series read my second post, if you're thinking some other series I'm sure there was, I mean lets face it, it is a really really annoying status effect, meaning it is just PERFECT. Come to think of it... I'm pretty sure The 7th Saga had a zombie status effect, though I don't think it was the same as the FF6 version of it... *ponders*

FFX has zombie status effect. Which is also very annoying, especially when the boss starts casting spells like curaga and regen.

Status effects aren't annoying. Actually, I love them, cause they present more of a challenge.

Pong would present a harder challenge than any RPG without status effects.

Status effects make you devise different strategies to different enemies that you encounter, making you use different attacks, or designate different characters for healing, or stock up on items.

:luvluv status effects: :D

I cant stand confuse,petrify or the worst one is [COLOR=orangered]DOOM!!!

01-22-2003, 11:38 PM
my most hated status effect is gotta be zombie or confuse.

Both are very annoying and are a bitch to cure. Confuse you gotta whack your dude and zombie on FF6 kills your char's hp.

02-02-2003, 12:58 AM
Most annoying is either doom or death from bosses.

02-10-2003, 08:32 PM
I hate charm. It is just like confused. Exept They hit you on purpose. Other than that I think the death spell sucks

As for using them agianst the computer. I love it it has helped me with so many tight spots. I have got many items, exp wins and what not thanks to status efect.

I like them more than I hate them

The most annoying status effect, for me would have to be Frog status effect from Final Fantasy 7.
