    Challenge in Dark Souls has always been fun for me, even in PvP

    Post by Phoenix Rising on Sat Nov 10, 2012 3:40 pm

    Recently something happened which made me realize why I like playing Dark Souls so much.

    I made a build where i focused on being the most OP possible and tested it. Guess what, it worked! I was crushing people left and right, with some fights only lasting a few seconds. Complete with scathing hatemails and all.

    Then something happened, it stopped being fun for me because I had taken away the one thing that made me like Dark Souls so much in the first place. The challenge! Using something with more form than function and just having fun with it...sometimes I win and sometimes I lose.

    Bottom line is I would rather be the underdog in a match and try to BEAT that OP build, than have that OP build myself.

    Because in Dark Souls, challenge is what I live for. It's a process of learning, self-improvement and overcoming the odds.

    Discuss, Relate, Agree or Disagree...

    If you get rid of your OP build, then your getting rid of the challenge for other people. There are other people relying on you to give them a challenge. lol!

    Also, once this guy beat me. Then I beat him.

    He messaged me, "I'll actually try next time." I replied, "LOL I thought you were trying." He replied, "No, you'll see the difference."

    Then I beat him again. He messaged me, "Your laging bro." I asked him if he wanted to fight again. He didn't reply or put his sign down. 😢

    Like you, I put a lot of research into my build.

    Actually I was just joking. Although I guess it could be a good point.

    I suppose it depends on their point of view. Some people play for fun or a challenge. Some play to win, at any cost. If they don't win they resort to whining and hatemailing...

    One of my friends i came across actually complimented me on the build. But most just hated on it because they lost.

    If you remember fighting me with my PGS, Dark Hand, and GC build, then that is my form of a small challenge. But at times, I just feel like whipping out the Great Scythe to give myself the impression that I'm actually capable of hanging with the best. silly
