    XBOX Cross Community Fight Club ~ Wiki + GameFaqs

    Post by Bowdownbe4me on Sun Apr 28, 2013 12:03 pm

    Hey everyone! As you may or may not know, I'm new here. But I'm a long time contributor on the DkS Gamefaqs board, and I figured that it was time that I help each community get to know each other better. So here I am!

    Tonight I will be hosting a Cross-Community Fight Club starting at 8pm EST in the Moonlight Butterfly Forest. Place your signs in the puddle before the first stone giant.

    This means that both the Wiki folks and the GameFaqs folks will be there. There will be no rivalry. This is more of a friendly meet-up.

    Here's the thing: the folks here tend to play with the "play-for-fun" style to a far greater extreme than even the most "play-for-fun" types on the GFaqs board. From what I've seen over the past night, you guys are used to having a bunch of "rules" which you follow, such as "no bs's," "no aoe," etc. The thing is, the GFaqs folks *don't* play like that, and depending on the person you're facing you may run into any number of things that you consider "cheap."

    On a personal note (displaying my GFaqs pvp mentality), any of these things that may be thrown at you will have counters if you're willing to learn them. If there were an "end-all be-all" unbeatable tactic in dark souls pvp then we would have seen it by now.

    That said, I certainly am overstating this warning if not entirely for the sake of avoiding salt between these communities. The GFaqs folks are very friendly, and I can assure you that there will be no bad blood between you, no matter what you do.

    So that brings me to this:

    Process:
    -Bow
    -Allow buffs
    -Allow grass mid-fight when applicable

    Rules:
    ~SL 125 (below is fine, please don't bring above)
    -No TWoP (it has it's counters as well, but the learning curve on them is impractical to expect from FC folks)
    -No chain bs (yes, even this has an easy counter, but chain bs's have the tendency of invoking salt, so they're banned)
    -Other than that, no rules

    Oh, actually, one more rule: NO SALT. If you didn't enjoy your fight, please don't send your opponent a negative message. That does little to help our communities grow together.

    SL 120? or SL 100? I'll show up, though i'm not great at dark souls, i'm more of a slightly above average player, but i'm sure i can hold my own. Also, i've never seen a fightclub that states "No Aoe, No Backstab" i'm not sure where you got this, perhaps in the past but not now. We're pretty leaned back i like to think.

    Sounds great! What SL range will it be at? I'm at the awkward in-between in skill level, where I'm better than average, but no where near amazing. silly

    Also, do you need any hosts to help out with summoning? I could probably do that for a couple hours or so.

    Welcome to the Wiki and forums! We have a great community here, thanks for setting this up. Bringing folks together is great for the at large community and I think you'll find a large majority of the fighters here are more open regarding rules than it may appear. Our Forum FC which is a 24/7 matchmake and our monthly big forum wide events all have minimal rules and dozens show up and things go off without a hitch and nearly no salt. I think both communities will enjoy palying together for sure!

    I'll be keeping an eye out to make sure our community members represent us with authenticity. No flaming, no salt as is customary for this place!

    I'm basing my perception of the community on a single night's FC, so I realize that's not exactly fair. (It was a no bs, no aoe FC last night).

    Also, I just remembered that this forum is cross console. This event will be on the Xbox 360. I notice you have a PS3, but I hope you happen to have a 360 as well, as I'd love for you to join in!

    And thank you for pointing out that I didn't specify SL. SL should be roughly 125. Anything under is fine, but I'd prefer people don't go much higher.

    Ah rats, I'm PS3 only. I would have loved to stop by with my Strength Cosplays and get murdered to death.

    Well in any case, good luck and I hope you guys have some fun.

    I can probably be there at the time. Odd place for a PvP event, but oh well. Better specify to people to kill every enemy first so that a duel isn't suddenly ended by a surprise tree hug.

    I'll be there. Judging by my experience last night, I'll need a bit of practice. What time does this run up until?

    Thanks for the reminder. That usually goes without saying, but at the same time it's better to put it to words. This is a friendly get-together after all. Not a cutthroat competition.

    -And as I've been dabbling in the most tryhard tactics lately, it turns out that chain-bs's are easily countered by either: 1. standing still when you are recovering from being knocked down, or 2. rolling directly at your opponent. (Just a tip).

    The FC will run until it dies down. No time limit.

    I never chain bs, but are wake up attacks after getting up from a bs considered try-hard? Like a combustion or wog or something

    How should we communicate? Should we just wordlessly summon people to fight all night, use the forum before hand, chat invites, chatroom thing....? Just curious.

    Also, just recruited about three people that will take part. They aren't part of the forums, but they might be prompted to join after this.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. There will only be a few designated hosts (1-2, maybe 3) including myself.

    *PLEASE: do not grab people's signs!* Put your sign down and wait to be summoned (you can also invade, if you'd like. But remember that you are risking invading worlds which are not designated hosts).

    If people start grabbing others' signs then 1. it'll be harder for the designated hosts to find signs, and will leave multiple people "hanging," and 2. There is no way for the rules to be enforced without a host to watch over it.

    P.S. I will be recording tonight's event and posting it on YouTube!

    I just joined, so I sadly knew nothing about it. I have been a member of Chatango for 6 years, so I at least know a bit about that. You or Bowdown could get the chatango thing going and I could see if I can get more people to join, unless you all don't want dozens of signs littering the place.

    Puddle in front of the first Stone knight in Darkroot Garden, I believe. The place with the Moonlight Butterfly.
