    Bad day or bad lag?

    Post by Espada Muerta on Thu Nov 01, 2012 12:25 pm

    So I was doing really bad at the Arena the other night, getting BS and blind angled left and right and I could not get anything going until I switched to a 2 sword style which I haven't used since the RoF days lol. But it seemed that people where teleporting behind me and BS me but I still was able to win because I slowed the game down some but still anyone get lag? and how fair do you guys think the arena is? the state of the Arena and how much of a joke the leaderboards are like the 2 on 2 leaderboards are.

    My builds that I started with and did bad.

    The switch I made to it and did better with.

    Tell me your thoughts on the Arena and the leaderbords.

    Ya lag has always been a problem in dark souls pvp. It's just something you have to deal with. Some nights are great some are super laggy. As for the leader boards, I don't even pay attention to them, I just play to have fun.

    Overall I like the arena though. It's no risk pvp. You can go in and fight a few people then step out with no lost humanity or souls.

    Was playing arena last night, deathmatch, and pretty much lag free. There were no Dark Magic spammers, people were polite and very good at PVP. Was really enjoyable experience.

    Lucky you, I gave up on the arena. Plus I don't see any of the good PvP people making any arena videos really so it just tells me what I already feel lol.

    yeah, alot of people that REALLY wanna win go to the arena which sucks since its because of al the streaks and leaderboards bs. just so you know the leo ring only affects physical damage so its not as good with elementals.

    this is my warrior(quality build) http://tinyurl.com/ax8wznz the halberd hits like a damn truck while two handed, about 1k per counter hit. you can also use the partizan or other rapiers and weapons with thrust damage like lucerne.
