    What do you mean by pvp?

    Post by Animaaal on Mon May 06, 2013 5:47 pm

    I've noticed a lot throughout the past year, that someone will ask for some advice about pvp in the most general way possible.

    Then, a couple well informed vets will give their 2 cents. However, the translation is sometimes misinterpreted, because the people giving the advice have a certain point of view.

    For instance:
    -Burg 1 vs 1 pvp.
    -Forest 2 vs 2 pvp.
    -Invasions / dealing with invaders / ganking or gankers
    -Arena based (recently of course)

    Now obviously the op could be more descriptive in most cases, which a lot of them are.

    But the question is this:

    When someone says, "I need advice on pvp."...how do you automatically interpret it?

    Me personally, its almost always forest play oriented. Something I need to start taking into consideration.

    What about you guys?

    Now that I think about it, most of my tips tend to be centered around duels in the Burg and randoms in the Township, as most of what I speak about it experienced there. That and Anor Londo.

    I just kinda assumed since they are good PvP spots.

    I tend to think of random invasions in general.

    When I think of advice on PVP I think random invasions.

    I think of it as how to deal with random invasions.

    Most all my advice if from the viewpoint of "kill this guy no matter what cheap thing he does" since I mainly invade places like Anor Londo or the forest, where everything is kind of screwed and you kind of expect to get ganked and have the host run and heal.

    I either give general advice or stuff that helps against cheap players,hackers or gankers.I find there is no good advice when it comes to dueling,that's something you just practice by yourself.

    Me vs another player. The core essentials are the same, no matter what type of PvP you are doing.

    I tend to think along the lines of the forest as well. I'd be there either to duel the invaders or as a back up if two invaders go ballistic. If it's advice I tend to assume it's for a pvp build or intentional pvp of some sort. I guess I hardly ever consider the possibility that they need help questing. Look Skyward

    I tend to think along the lines of invading, since that's normally what I do. It's been a long time since I've been in the forest or Burg.
