After only a few weeks of play, my greatest annoyances are matches where I can hardly get the ball into the opponents half and my complete lack of talent  ;D.
A bit more serious, people who foul "because it's fun"  ::) and people who complain that every goal they concede is all down to bad luck (even if they have a
point, it's all in the game, and it's only a game / way of life).

But it's good to read that gh/gl/sorry etcetera isn't as common as I thought it to be. I almost thought it was just about compulsory to type it even though you're
getting thrashed 5-0 at half time :).

Currect chart:

1. Pressing ESC in first mins after red card or injury! DO NOT DO THIS AGAINST ME! Thanks.  >:(
2. "sorry" for injuries... do we play football game or wacky darts?
3. "GH" by standard... seeing a different game? And what it's worth? A match lasts 90mins...
4. After ooo matches agreed on "y m y m" entering... but opponent keeps entering wrong way...

This chart is still current!
But writing "GH" at halftime is a favorite of annoyance in the future...  ::)

Lately someone even wrote "sorry" after he fouled me for a penalty (no injury happened). COME ON?!?!?! This is ridiculous...

Some things are cultural differences, that much I've learned from my year+ online.
The GH-thing...well some people like it, and I only do it if my opponent does.

My annoyances are a bit different:
1. The "all my players lose the ball if somebody even looks at them", or the "my attackers walk  through your defenders like they're ghosts" matches.
    I don't know why this happens...but if it does, well I know I'm going to lose.
2. Smiley's if someone thrashes you. What's there to smile about? I call it bad sportsmanship....
    Same goes for people who only say GG when they've won (or won by a big margin).
3. In requesting matches no "Hi" etc., just a pm with "ASL" ....
4. People who always complain about luck, start F11-ing messages like "WTF" when you've scored etc.
    Everyone has his bad days, everyone has said something in the past but all the time? Come on!

I absolutely do not agree:
1. For me SWoS is real football. When I play real football (ofc friendly basis) and kick, tackle etc. someone, I would say at least sorry. Even if it awarded penalty. Really it does not related with the ref. decision. This is true for any hard tackle, not just for penalties.
2. When I try to do a nice (or a not so nice) goal, but instead I was given a penalty, it is a very boring way of scoring - for both side. My happiness level is much more higher after a "real" goal, if I score it, or even it is scored aginst me. A sorry is absolutely adequate for me.

I almost agree with your older points, but sometimes you do not have time, energy (or language knowledge) to really talked with someone. So instead we use ritual, polite things. As I learned, in SWoS these are "HF, GL, GH and GG". A ritual is always a bit (or much) empty, but it is politeness. First it was annoying for me too, but I do it now. Totally agree, that a real talk is much much more better.

And also does not agree with R&R's 3rd. It is for me is a technical issue. This is not real chat, just a mechanical way of letting somebody know of something, like a ring of a bell. But after - let's start real conversation.

What's annoys me?
1. When a player instantly hits ESC, when see frozen pitch. (Almost cheating for me.)
2. Do not even answer when a tell him some real word, not just GL, HF - so the problem maybe is not with these but with lack of anything else.
3. On another night one player had too much terrible tackle against me. In 2 matches I have gotten 4 injuries, and awarded me 2 penalties. Some times he said "S", this is not the problem here, but it was too much :) for me.
And agree with R&R's 2nd, it is also very strange for me too. Maybe who do it, does not understand it? :)

But really these do not annoy me. I am waiting my first real annoyance factor.

Idiots pressing "S" many  times during the game.

Typical unfair behaviour of some  users

What I hate while playing SWOS on an original A500 is when I played around 20 career matches in a row and then my mobile starts ringing. If it's to near to the A500 it will reset due to interferences HAHA. No joke, and happened to me a while ago. Made me pissed hihi...

Currect chart:

1. Saying "you're lucky guy", "too much luck for you" or something like that  :-X 
2. Pressing ESC in first mins after red card or injury!
3. pressing "s", "sry" or "sorry" for injuries
4. "GH" after every half  ::)

1. Obviously delay. Especially in ranked matches.
2. Opponent quitting before a match has ended if your lead is too big.
3. Writing sorry if you DON'T mean it after a foul ^^
4. Robotic GH, regardless of the score. Come on..

LOL! I wonder if this could happen with A600/A1200. Would be pretty annoying and time consuming if we had to replay a DIY league at sensi days :/
But in all my years playing offline this never happened so ...

Current chart:

1. a) "sorry" or "s" for injuries... do we play football or exercise in ballett?
1. b) "GH"... GET RID OF THAT!!!! What's a half worth? NOTHING!!

Btw, if you play a row of 4 matches, it should be enough to say once "HF" (before 1st) and once "GGs" (after last).

Do you want to know what does annoyes me while I am playing? It does annoyes me just to think in the potential this game still has, all that could be done and all that hasn´t been done by these morons at Codemasters. If I was millionare I would go to the Codemasters office, I would throw some good amount of money in their CEO´s face and then I would take all that caode back here where it belongs to put it in the right hands and make a proper update like SWOS derserves.

Hm, right now it annoys me when I forget to put discord status to "red" (do not disturb) while playing.
Otherwise desktop notifications fly in on unmuted channels!  >:( ::)

Definitely saying gh, hf, specially gl! And other things like that, is to break the concentration of the contricant.  :D :D ;)
Postscript: I know of opponents who ask you something and start the game fast hahahaha  ;D ;D ;D

Seriously, I understand that everyone does it by protocol, education and friendliness. It's a good thing I think, doesn't anyone else think so?
