    Reverse Backstab?

    Post by volbia on Wed Mar 13, 2013 2:58 am

    I was running through the undead parish in the church as I made my way to the gargoyles for a NG+ kill when I was invaded by a darkwraith. he was pretty low level and I figured I'd just finish him off quickly. I took out my dark silver tracer ran straight past him reversed and backstabbed him... Until the animation stopped and I was backstabbed by him instead (his player was still infront of me.) a few lagstabs later and I was killed :\

    anyone explain this phenomenon? I've never seen it happen before n ow.
    I'd ask the guy but since his gamertag is in a foreign language, most likely either korean, chinese, or japanese I can't.

    The likely culprit is lag. You guys both went to backstab at the same time and the game decided it was his to have. Its really no ones fault just the result of a slower internet connection on your part most likely.

    Sounds like a really close counter bs.

    He took a step back and bs'd you when you charged, but the slight latency between your games made it appear on your screen that you bs'd him, until the visuals caught up with what actually happened. I see that all the time.

    It's called counter bs, he saw you going for what was an obvious bs attempt and went for your back. Lag made it look like you bsed him, but it was actually his, so your screen corrected itself.
