    no one attacks anymore

    Post by XuitusTheGreat on Wed Apr 17, 2013 12:09 am

    hung around in forest, town, and burg and everyone wont attack unless it's for a bs. I get it happening in the forest a lot but even people who are bowing and acting like they want a duel just attempt pivots and rolls, its boring lol just a shout out to anyone who still presses R1 to someones face haha

    Yep, all the idiots have spread everywhere and are taking over. The only current place I can invade at for a half decent fight is the Moonpit, but people in there are just tryhards (no offense to Moonpit PvPers), so I just prefer fighting gankers for the adrenaline rush.

    I don't play against randoms very much anymore. If this style of gameplay is boring for you; try setting up duels on this forum.
    I find playing people I meet here the most enjoyable to duel with because they are very skilled and/or interesting to have as an opponent. You can also agree upon any "rules" beforehand, or give each other advice.
    You on PSN? I'd love a match.

    the only thing you can do is challenge legit pvp'ers or go to fight clubs where they wont just do nothing but fish. I really hate how this has spread, it's embarrassing when someone acts all legit by bowing and pretending that they want a good match only to sircle around you forever and not attack even once but only to bs you

    I hate those fights. Get bs'd once, counter bs, counter bs, counter bs, win. Repeat. So dull.

    I never bow to randoms anymore unless i've fought them before and had a legit and fun fight. These fights that devolve into a bs fest is good practice to counter bs but still utterly boring and stupid.

    Most of the guys i meet that are such hypocrites are those with those standard 'scrub' armor/weapon setup. Pinwheel mask/Giant chest/hollow cloth. Just poise bs all day. Look Skyward

    But the worst are those that will bait you into bowing and attack/bs while in the animation.

    I just get sick of "fishers", the problem I have with them is as their fishing, I stop, swing with my Claymore or great scythe (to hit them, from behind). Or, i stop walk counter clock-wise and back stab them, then I get hatemail silly

    In Dark Souls, attacking usually is a bigger risk than it is worth unless you have like SUPER RIGHT positioning, or if your opponent is bad. Also maybe if you are psychic.

    This does not apply to Dex weapons, btw.

    BS Fishers used to get on my nerves too. The only thing you can do is tighten them up and teach them to be better by counter bsing and kicking their bs attempts. The only way this BS fishing madness will subside is if the more experienced players (forum members or otherwise) teach this fishers the way Dark Souls taught us: by killing the crap out of them.

    I don't blame BS fishers because to some extent its an effective strategy. I consider it my obligation to show them that there are strategies out there designed to counter fishing. Lets all help BS fishers improve their gameplay my friends and lets do so in the most brutal fashion possible. twisted

    What luv2fight said is 100% true. If you don't like something, learn how to beat it. If people keep losing while using a tactic, they're going to adapt and do something different.

    No one attacks anymore....well for the most part anyways because a better strategy is to be patient and counter attack your oppenent (ex. In the middle of their combo or at the end of their roll...if you have slow weapon you may time blows so you tank one but stagger them). I mean havent you noticed that many good players will wait for you to atk then mash their attack to catch you before your roll; you can use this to your advantage though.

    Anyone who rushes their attacks will usely be beat; however you can still go on the offensive with good timing/tricks (dint want to explain that haha)

    Not true. One of my favorite tactics when using a buff build is something I like to call the Bum Ruuuush! What I do is (for anyone interested in learning) I cast my buff lock on, rush them, then right when I get within range to attack I delock and do a running attack that doesn't leave me too open. The reason for the delock is to prevent or at least make backstabs more difficult.

    Ive got no quarrel with your second statement though

    There are fishers out there but i think the majority are just wary of a BS on them, parry or someone poising through their attack. I go very wary when i come up against someone in armour with good poise or is dual wielding.

    Someone mentions kicks, i thought kicks were good until i bumped into a few that were good at using toggle escape and i got parried to hell or pivot bs'd basically making kick nwaf.

    Can't pivot out of a kick stun to my knowledge. It also bypasses poise. They likely just parried you because following a kick with an r1 is a really obvious move.

    You can also unlock and spin to kick away the pivot bsing.

    I ment toggle. can't toggle out of a kick stun, to my knowledge.

    Well jeez man if your getting parried because your kicking then stop kicking with your sword. Seriously don't you know that kicking can neither be parried nor poised.

    I said USUALLY haha. Also your method falls under my other quote where i said that with tricks and timing you can pull of ttacking alot. Which you did since you dont just blantantly attack; you had a plan to trick your oppenent and minimize counter attacks.

    All im saying is that i play with some pretty decent players and if any of them goes to much on the offensive they almost always get destroyed (when facing another good player).

    Though obviously you need to know when to go on the offensive or defensive because every match/player is different
