    Players making excuses

    Post by Samurainova on Sat Mar 30, 2013 12:27 pm

    Hey guys, i havent been on forums in a long time mostly because ive been very busy with the real world, anyways heres a list of some of the most frequently used excuses for their actions on the battle field. They are in no particular order.

    10. Im new i didn't know that it was wrong. ( I accept this, we arent all seasoned veterans so i try to help these people happy )

    9. I dont like your build so i stopped trying.

    8. You were lagging ( Lag happens both ways by the way. Happened recently on my friends livestream on twitch.)

    7. I was AFK.

    6. I was testing out this new build.

    5. I havent played dark souls in a long time. ( I do not accept this a legitimate excuse. I have head this atleast a thousand times and i jut dont feel its true. Dark souls is either in your blood or isnt and i have gone and comeback several times while retaining the same level of skill. )





    4. Your weapon is OP. ( First of all, dont be hatin on the baller swag sword, swag sword be hatin on you. Second, if its so easy to use, why dont you grab yours and fight me with it? You cant tell me something is OP if youve never used it. )

    3. You are better than me. ( Props to anyone who would ever say this to any player. But no, every dark souls player is made equal, im no better than the guy ganking in the darkroot forest. The only differance between me and the scrub ganking in the forest is the path i chose to take. Choose yours wisely happy )

    2. This isn't my main build. ( I dont care...either you lose or you win if your not giving it your all thats your choice not mine. Fact of the matter is...you dead.)


    1. I dont like the way you fight. ( Just because you dont like how someone fights doesnt give you the right to start chugging divine blessings. That makes you even worse in a sense. If you want to prove your better show them with your skill, not supplies. )

    This video in particular angered me, I saw nothing that the player really did that was TOO bad, and it seems alot like the invaders friends ganged up and bashed the guys video with dislikes. But hey, thats just me. Anyone with veteran level of skill could have beaten this guy, if your hindered because you chose to fast roll in low poise armor thats YOUR problem not your opponents. Anyways that sums up this most let me hear excuses you hear as well. Thanks.

    11. All you do is spam the same tactic. (at least it works)

    did you not see that host was sl 200 in that vid? invader chose to fastroll in low poise? no! he deciced to follow community establised level caps and host didn´t thats why "rules" never existed in that match. i dont agree with using divines gotten through non legit means but i would have no problems healing against that guy

    I find players who complain of others who use excuses equally as annoying and self-righteous.
    I see no reason for this other than to look down on others.

    Just play the damn game.

    So the excuses are all PvP based, what's your excuse for posting PvP thread in the General area?


    On topic,
    'my controller died mid fight so I pulled my internet'
    Oh really? So it wasn't the fact you were down to 10% health and I was unhurt! Maybe you think my sack is op so im cheap.

    From personal experience of not playing for months at a time, then coming back (doing this about 3-4 times now), 5. Is a legit thing. I am nowhere near the player I was, at PvP in the very least, though i can still hold a candle to most.

    I feel your comments on 3 are a little stupid. (sorry to say that) Dark Souls has a massive element in skill, luck and lag also, but mainly skill. If a guy admits you're better, he's probably right and to be honest skill makes a difference. Though in the same way playing like a dirty ***** just because someone is better than you is a bit low. Go down with honour is my motto (it happens a lot silly)

    I also concur with Mildred's statement.. Come on guys, sections are not hard to sort and use right? :|

    An SL 200 Gravelord: When Gravelords infect players that are lower level then them exclusively...

    Seems legit to me. You don't want to be SL120 as a gravelord, you want overhead because as a gravelord, you risk a 3 v 1 fight, can't use grass, power within, or other body buffs, and can't fight the boss, summon phantoms, or warp anywhere.

    I have to respectfully disagree with you on points 5, 4, and 3.

    5. As a busy student I have not been consistently playing Dark since the New Year. Thus, my skills have dropped. I don't know what kind of god you are, but we regular mortals experience this thing called "rust." It happens in real life too. Don't expect a retiree to perform on the same level with his peer who has been actively competing for x amount of years.

    4. Weapons are not created equal. Charles Darwin right there, folks. Admittedly, skill is still greater than any "OP" weapon, but some weapons give you better leverage over all others.

    3. You are probably "better" than I at playing this game. Is not the mighty "SamuraiNova" some kind of Japanese Angel-warrior who was born in the carcass of a exploding sun? After all, only a god like he could keep his skills intact after a long break.
    A better person than I? Debatable. Created equal? No. Definitely not.

    Another excuse:
    I can't lose, I'm too good, you are obviously hacking.

    Once I was level 110 and got owned by a level 5, and he never had to heal. It was a really one sided fight. Also, I beat about 50% of my opponents, so it wasn't because I'm a bad player. It was because he was a great player.

    Having a high level character does not mean certain victory.

    That's universal across all games.

    "I was bowing, yet you backstabbed me." (So what? Bow when not in the middle of a fight.)

    imma have to side with samurai on this i was off DkS for a few months then i bought DkS for myself and was still at my level (which wasnt saying much as i was FAR worse then). but i can say for one excuse i use every now and again is " i had lost a lot of souls and hum so i had to use my cheap tactics" though i do apologize for it after win or lose. i think since its on rare occasion its ok but hey idk.

    I agree with you for the most part, except for 5 I think it differs for different people.

    You've already stated that you can go a while without playing and still maintain your skill within the game, I cannot. If I go even a week without playing the game I normally spend hours working on getting used to the controls and my builds again when I pick the game back up.

    I don't make excuses.

    I win some and lose some.

    Only time I message someone I've lost to is to say GG or to laugh at them if they are a terrified hacker.

    I just pretty much suck at PVP, end of.

    However, I'm a Sunbro, I'm not gonna spend all my time training for PVP. If I get backstabbed/wrath of godded/parried/eviscerated in general by a phantom, I don't mind - as long as the host lives and gets to the boss and away from the phantom that's all good.
    I've even accepted challenges from honourable invaders before - one bowed at me from a distance away in the burg, in the open bit near the bonfire, and we just duked it out whilst the host and another guy went to the boss. Died horribly, but was cool and we got what we wanted.

    If you think Lag is equal on both sides, you don't understand networking. My connection is excellent and I can't stand when people choke their connection and have all kinds of packet collisions for a choppy Tx to me when my Tx to them is great.

    I avoid most frustrations by chucking plenty of lloyd's talismans otherwise almost everyone I invade heals at every chance they get. The only really annoying thing I come across are people who try to set up an ambush and disconnect when they realise i'm not stupid and nearly kill them. I don't really care about getting 1-shotted by pursuers, etc. I don't lose anything (darkwraith).

    I do hate it when people hide though and I will generally black crystal pretty fast so they don't get the satisfaction of wasting a lot of my time. Got some hatemail the other day calling me scared for black crystalling when he was hiding... Why would I be scared if I'm invading you and haven't even seen what you look like yet?... You just mad.

    Does me saying "umadbro" to hatemail count? big grin
    I've never felt the need to excuse any cheapness,if I heal or BS,it's simply because I think the other guy is being an A-hole so I won't play nice,I'll be like them.
    Trying to excuse any bad behaviour is just stupid,if you do something wrong,accept that you made an *** of yourself.No point in trying to get approval or understanding from some random player at the other side of the world.You either play nice or you don't.

    There is no right or wrong in this game, but as I've said in the past there is respect.
    I'm not going to be impressed by cheap gimmicks and I'm not expecting people to need my respect either, but that is all I have to give.
