What I can'i stand are people who want to throw all dice at once. If its a hero on a hero in Warhammer then I've got no problem with it but if they're playin a unit with a ridiculous amount of attacks say four per model and their are 20 models resulting in eighty dice rolls break the damn rolls up up into groups of 10 or 12.
I had someone pull this on me in a 40K tournament. When I mentioned it be easier if he broke up hi dice rolls he flashed me dirty look and roll them all at once anyway. All it ended up doing was mess up my figure placement, scatter the terrain everywhere and have approximately half his dice end up on the floor. When he tried to do it again I told him flat out to roll in groups or have the referree watch his rolls. After some grumbling on his part he finally did the sensible thing.

POLL DESCRIPTION

A die dropper is the guy who feels the need to test all of the available dice at the gaming table, looking for the "lucky" ones. When his turn to roll dice comes, he takes his time rolling each die individually, dropping them in "just the right way" to get his desired outcome.

On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is no problem and 10 is a major problem, how annoyed are you by die droppers?
