    I bow all the time...except in the forest. I've been attacked, backstabbed, kicked, soul spear/arrowed. I still do it as a sign of honor. I can't figure out if people do it to be jerks or just out of impatience. I'm guessing the latter...

    Using the Great Club if I sense a player is fishing I'll only use roll-r1's,
    if you do it right players can't back-stab you. You need to play 80%
    back-stab evade (dwgr) 20% roll-r1 & be completely unpredictable.
    I don't recommend using r2 as it seems pointless when the jump attack
    does pretty much the same damage & at twice the speed, r2 should
    be considered a punishment for a failed jump attack.

    i care more about how i fight then how they fight, i always bow, if they BS me, shoot me with magic or what ever, i flip away to safety heal up, and try to either shrug, face palm, or bow again. and get ready for a anything goes fight.

    Are you bowing for yourself or them?
    If its for yourself then you already know why you are bowing. If its for them then you just have to be careful when you bow.

    proper bow is quicker than the reg. bow. Bow only from a distance. bow after each fight even if dissrespected. Keep the fight as fair as possible.

    As I said in another thread, I rarely bow since it's become such an empty gesture, and has become a very robotic thing for people, so it has no value to me anymore. I only use it after a fight that was hard and well fought, in fact, I'll send the player a message telling them how much I enjoyed the fight and whatnot. People bow after they spammed WotG, fished for backstabs, ganked, interrupted a duel, etc., etc., the list goes on. It means nothing, as far as I am concerned.

    Nothing wrong with not bowing, I prefer people to but I don't find it rude if they don't return the gesture to me. And yeah, I do love to exchange messages with people after fights in the same way, sometimes offering tips if I notice the person seems to be lacking useful information.

    Last night in the burg I was hosting and the summon bowed just before I did...because I summoned him I didn't even think about getting BS'd while I bowed....

    He got his BS in and lined me up for a chain....I did a wake up parry and nailed him with it....I then gave him a wake up BS after the RPSTL....I waved after that one.....
