    So...

    Why is R1 spam bad?

    If you're turtling behind a shield, it counters the shield turtling.

    And if it bugs you that much, parry him.

    I can agree stunlocking is stupid, the whole poise concept was kind of stupid to begin with, but a guy isn't going to just back off when he's attacking you.

    The way Dark Souls currently is, R2s almost always get you backstabbed.
    Lets take a look at some of the most used weapons to prove this:
    Uchigatana: The R2 is a thrusting attack with a slow charge up, all they would have to do is see it then side step and backstab you.
    Zweihander: The R2 is a slamming attack, if it misses, you're getting backstabbed. Period.
    Balder Side Sword: Although strong, all someone has to do is roll behind you for the backstab, assuming they aren't hit by lag/phantom damage.
    Claymore: Very easy to sidestep and punish.

    Then again, all these attacks can be extremely useful is you combo from R1s, but people are too lazy for that.
    You ever seen a Gold Tracer user who is actually using the Gold Tracer? Very rarely.

    Once people begin finding new overpowered weapons, R2s may come back.

    i mean i always do at least the 2 hits then back off thats just how most people who are not R1 spammers play, its either the good ol 1 or 2 punch then back off. and i really hate that golden tracer because not a single person uses it skillfully its R1R1R1 bloodloss R1R1 die lol its just lame. i like to be creative and R1 and R2 thats just me though

    With the ridiculously bad connections I've seen in game, you really think I'm going to open myself up for a backstab like other posters above have mentioned?

    Heck I get backstabbed sometimes when someone is RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME and I'm circle-strafing him. Last thing I want to do, is use an R2 and then miss (because of lag) and then I'm dead.

    Sorry, OP. If I hit you with, say, a Gravelord's... well, you're getting hit a few more times after that too. I don't care if you think it is "skillful" or not...

    What would you rather have, TWoP+WoG? DLC magic? Ninja-Flipping people in Havel's?

    I'm just not understanding what the OP thinks is "skillful" play.

    I love R1 spammers! cause i can parry them and teach them that they suck at the game. Just practice with a friend and get the parry times down, that's what i did with a friend here on the forums.

    They are easy to parry and get hits off when they run low on stamina. Simple, and they can be toyed with for a while.

    That awkward moment when you die to a Scimitar.

    Most true R1 spammers aren't smart enough to do this, i'm not talking about people who attack once or twice and back off, those aren't r1 spammers. And when i find out they are smart enough to do this, i change my course of action to counter it. Simple, really.

    I wasn't either. I can and do run up with a zweihander, dead angle twice and bs the toggle parry attempt. Thats 1700+ damage. Fights over, I win.

    I can and do run up with a katana, wait a second to throw off their parry timing, and r1 spam 3 or 4 times (how lomg it takes the parry's to catch up)

    Try sparing people your judgement huh?

    Fair enough, but you forget that i'm not always going to parry when you run forward and try to dead angle me with your zweihander, its all depends upon the situation. And regarding what you said with the katana, same thing, i can just swing my greatsword at you when you think i'd parry, boom problem solved. It all depends on the moment, i can't say for a fact i'd do that, but i also can say that it is possible i'd do what i said above. And that kind of thing only works on an opponent once, and i doubt i'd fall for it again. And i don't think i came out as hostile, so i have no idea why you added in that last comment.

    Also, i don't think you'd be able to get 4 hits out with a uchi, maybe 2 but i don't think 3-4.

    Edit: Ah mate, i reread what i said and i didn't explain what IMO is a 'R1 spammer'. In my book, a R1 spammer is someone who just mashes R1 with no stratigent intentions. He does so because he doesn't know what else to do. What you said is what i would call a stratigent move. You think your enemy is going to parry, and you punish it, that's not the same as just running up and mashing R1. Though i still think my previous argument still stands.

    Healers are easily countered. They're going to do one of two things.

    Either:

    A. Pop an Estus right in your face. In this case punish him with a BS

    B. Try to get away from you, so he can safely pop an Estus. In this case don't let him run away, just keep him close enough for you to BS if he tries to get a quick heal. Just watch out for Talismans, because WoTG is very popular amongst people.

    I forget nothing. If I've ever seen you toggle before it 1 hit+bs to avoid you escaping. You also can't parry dead angles (why I'm doing it)

    Unless you have the target shield/buckler, it takes 3 hits to catch up to uchi r1 spam if you miss the first parry. If one knows to stagger their timing, they can ditch that 3rd parry and repeat the process indefinitely.

    As for "people not good enough to do anything other than spam R1" those are noobs, and thats not how OP defined it, thus not the definition I was refering too.

    Presumably he'd be upset about being stunlocked to death by a zweih or GT, because it "takes no skill," to which I say it is fair and counterable. if you (you being anyone) then lose to it, look in the mirror before you tell them how much they suck.

    Forum Rank, every certain amount of posts you make you get a new title. And then some mods or users have special titles given to them.

    I stunlock, so to that i agree with, stunlocking with a str weapon takes skill because we can't slash 3 times with an greatsword and not be punished, opposed to the uchi. All your points are valid, but you can't indefenitly say that all these things would work on someone. People act on instinct, and that instinct during that fight might be to roll to the right and just avoid you altogether. Oh and when the OP said r1 spammers, i think of gankers, and gankers are generally speaking bad at the game. (I'm a forest hunter and i invade gankers, and normally win. unless i'm on my smough build, then i tend to lose, but oh well, its a joke build)

    I'll say you won this debate, good job, i always find you bring up valid points. Though i do think that 'Sparring people your judgement' comment was uncalled for, because when we think of r1 spammers, we don't think of good players. Perhaps we think of boring to fight players, but i know i don't think of good players.

    Edit: Oh and on the topic of dead angles, i hope they are gone in dark souls 2. Nothings more annoying than someone who dead angles me with wrath of the gods (Now before anyone says ****, i know i can roll through it, but its still freaking annoying on narrow bridges). Plus i think it looks stupid when someone clearly hits my shield but i take damage, if anything just add in a grab attack to get counter turtles.
