    Repetition

    Post by Soris Ice Goldwing on Thu Mar 14, 2013 11:00 pm

    I think I'm suffering PvP repetition. Ever since I finished my new 100 things got boring for me. I'm not sure if it's me or the people I've been fighting. My wins have gone up dramatically and this toon has proven to be quite something with my tactics. I've been hosting by myself a while and after awhile I notice that some fights are cut and paste. Even in the forest and that worries me. I think I'm looking for a fight that would push me into the corner or a fight where I know I can't win unless I really go at it. But I'm not sure.

    Anyone else get days like this?

    Yeah. I setup duels with people I know are awesome at that point. The masses tend to suck.

    I do have days like this. I'd suggest invading/hosting in a different place than your usual spot, or messaging people from this forum for good duels. Phoenix Rising (| Aim v Here | on the Xbox), Juutas, Rynn, and anyone in the Neowraiths come to mind.

    We also haven't dueled in a while. I'd like to see to that soon.

    I think part of it comes from the fact I like fights to drag a bit. Some people are so quick to kill and be done with it and that's boring to me. Some people I fight twice or more are really good and get a good minute out of it.

    I wonder how the Royal Woods are...

    I prefer it to last, but I don't hold back to make it so. If they screw up badly enough for me to end it, its over.

    I run into a lot of gank squads outside of Kalameet, but otherwise there are a lot of PVEers around level 55 to 99.

    It is harder to kill them if they keep healing. Just died to the usual str tank who would just keep healing after I parried him 3 times, two of which were in a row. Jeez the prick had the nerve to "celebrate" by spamming . In situations like that I either kill them fast as I can or die where I can get my souls easy.

    Also thanks Sneezer. I might still try it but if it doesn't work I'll see if I can get a 1v3 in the forest. Always wanted to try that.

    ^Invade as a Dark wraith and not a FH. I've said it before that I went months without facing a 3v1 in the Forest until I switched to the Red Eye Orb.

    Where have you been invading as of late?

    I invade in the painted world and the township mostly and on rare days I'll try the area outside the forest entrance. I host in those areas and also the forest. Also X I meant I wanted three invaders against me. Every time I try that as an invader I die because the host goes through every flask he/she has. Last time the host went through all twenty because I nearly killed both the phantoms he had four times.

    Gravelord if you want 3 invaders.

    How long has it been since you've been to the Burg?

    If they heal first, I heal and they'll never kill me. (I have blessings, 198 of them)

    The Burg is slow, but it seems to contain what you are seeking. You seem to have bad luck with the Township, by the way. I get some awesome fights while both invading and hosting.

    So do I X. Most nights the township is great but sheesh I hope I don't deal with that again. The burg may have the challenge. I'll head there.

    Yep this turned out exactly like I knew it would. In the past hour only two people I fought actually did give me a challenge. A pyro in the burg who pryomancies kepted me on edge and a fire effected uchi weilder in the painted world who healed a few times. Oh got spawn gankers there too....I'm not mad by this just disappointed. No fun or challenge.

    Walk over to the undead dragon before starting invasions. You'll spawn next to the red soap stone.

    I've totally camped up there and watched a gank squad run around looking for me for a good 10 minutes.

    Yeah they left. The host took me as an idiot and thought I didn't know about the phantoms (I check the recent players when PvP) in the end he went though 99 firebombs, some arrows and flasks just trying to get me to chase him.

    Also I think I found the greatest katana wielder I ever faced. That fire buffed uchi can certainly dance through hits and deal quite a lot of damage. Considering how the fights went we were trying to predict and counter each other step by step. That guy was defiantly what I was looking for in a challenge!

    The thing thats been frustrating me in township is the seemingly increasing number of gankers who cast TWoP the second you spawn. I do what I can to roll out of the way as soon as I spawn, but generally I cant avoid it. Its such a cheap tactic and I cant think of a way to avoid or counter it. Its not the 2vs1 that pisses me off, i I have fun with that... its the immobilize you and smash that frustrates me. How is that even fun?

    I know how you feel. That's why I don't even use my spear build that much. Usually I only use it for when I need to vent or to prevent rust.

    If you want an interesting build, you could try doing my skill test challenge. You should have a lot of interesting fights when you're switching your weapon and equipment every fight.

    lol,like i said in my "Gank the World" topic.

    thats how it is. and it sucks.

    i guess i understand today this ppls mind.

    i think all they "really" want is. cheers to= WIN. :face: .

    the second reason is "revenge" somes just do the same that happen to themself to others.


    and after they done with you,you see nearly everytime this. Shrug Well What is it Point Down Proper Bow Bow Shrug Prostration Beckon .

    the worst thing on all this is to see always the same.

    :mask-mother: :mask-father: :mask-child: :mask-averice:

    last but not least always wen i kill an guy with a mask or a helmet that hides his face...always i hear a "girl voice". my god how that is annoying. rly frustrating.
