    Senty's PvP spam, rant and other amazing stuff

    Post by Sentiel on Mon Jun 10, 2013 1:43 am

    After some time...two months perhaps...of being away from Dark Souls, I decided to dust off my copy of this amazing game and go straight for some Burg PvP. I also decided to stop posting my PvP stories into the Fight Club thread and rather make my own thread for my PvP spammy spam.

    I did exactly 25 fights yesterday and another 25 this very morning. I mostly tried invading, but you know how the game is, so in the end I ended up hosting most of the fights. Dragon's Dogma has a very different control shceme, so it got me killed a lot in the start, but I got quickly used to Souls controls and our beloved PvP lag.

    My build underwent some changes, most notably changing RoFaP for Hornet RIng. People hate on it, but it's their own problem. No need to concern myself. The loss of extra carrying capacity made me swap my beloved Shotel for Composite Bow. Oh, how I wish to have three weapon slots!

    Off to the fights!
    From those 50 fights, I met three very nice guys, right off the bat. We talked a bit, exchanged tips and strategies and my general faith in gamer humanity was slightly restored. A few jumpers later it got back where it was before. Well, since I don't bow unless it's a summoned fight, jumpers kinda fail in my case. Even if it's a generally accepted PvP area, since we're invading, I see no reason to indulge ourselves in pleasantries. In the end, all we want is to gut the other person, right?

    I met two highly comical gank attempts and one successful. Didn't expcet three high poise gankers at the spawn point. Not much to do against them, especially with Rapier.

    Somebody here said that people tend to wear hatemails as some sort of badges of honor, so I shall do that as well. Sounds like fun. Too bad I can't screenshot them and share them in here. Got first hatemail in the first 15 minutes. Hornet Ring hate, as expected. Got another one, which was a lot longer and lot harder to decipher soon afterwards, in one of my first few invasions. Divine Blessing hate. The host chugged in his Sunny D after I roll bsed his Claymore, so I chugged...or whatever you do with it...one of my last Divine Blessings (gotta remind myself to restock later ). I see no reason for hate on the poor item. It's much more effective than Humanitites, thanks to the speed of the usage.

    I met one very cool guy, with whom I had a nice Dark Hand fist fight. It's nice to see guys like that.

    Another host, a male host, with Dusk's set, minus the chest. It looked...disturbing.
    Guy had 0 Poise and used DSS and EF and I must give Kudos to this person for utterly obliterating me with this set.

    I was also invaded by a twink. I poked him with my Rapier for third of his HP bar. That kinda gave him away.
    I gave him the look...
    Spoiler:
    ...and he knew he's f***ed. Sweet revenge! twisted

    Overall, I won most of the fights, which I think is good, given how rusty I still am.
    It was a good day.

    I'll try to get rid of the rust before trying to fight one of you PvP maniacs in here. No offence, but I know most of you guys are beasts that laugh in face of three man ganks.

    Cheers and expect more Senty's spammy spam PvP stories in the future. o/

    It was funny. It was also the only guy I met with no piece from Havel's set. People tend to go for function over looks, so I prefer to look at a man in woman's clothes, than another dirty, torn up hollow with shiny armor and magic sword. Both look equally ridiculous and silly, but the guy in a dress is much rarer to find.

    I haven't used a piece from Havel's set for PvP since my first.

    Oddly enough, I also went to the Burg today for the first time in a long time and was disappointed. I certainly haven't gotten any better in my absence, but I won nearly every single one of my fights, even invading max level trolls. I was defeated by a laggy DMB bs fisher, a pair of gankers who I suspect were hacking but couldn't be sure, and one astonishingly skillful Gravelord who handed my *** to me with DWGR and the Chaos Blade- Just those three people out of 20-30 invasions, which is kind of sad because I don't consider myself that great at dueling. Moonpit is looking better in terms of challenge but the Burg needs to step up its game, it's too easy as it is.

    I have to admit that I don't like Moonpit. Dealing with those trees and Stone Giants on NG+ is a chore.
    If the invaders is a ***, he can aggro them on you and you're screwed. That doesn't happen in Burg at all. I man yeah, they can aggro hollows, but those are ******* even on NG+7.

    I had a lot of Japanese players today. Boy those guys must have ten fingers on each hand. They're so fast. All of them use stuff like raviolli, fight unlocked the whole match, spell cancel WoG into bs and more. Oddly enough, my noobish locked on style with Rapier wins most of the time. I even don't use Shotel now and I'm sure it would allow me to win even more, because some of them have 0 Poise. Not really sure why though...
    Well whatever. ^^

    Moonpit tends to have the best players and the worst tryhards. A lot of the time it's not so fun there since the fights are so tense and the opponent cuts you no slack with bs punish, tickstabs, etc. Everyone fights like they have something to prove, it's like MLG in that place and it annoys me.

    I thought we changed the name to FlutterPit? But i do remember having fun times in the pit against the known DkS players that used to be top of the book of the guilty.

    Hmmm
    Met a modder, or hacker, or whatever the cheating scum is called.
    Full Havel's + Giant Legs, with fast roll. Some shield, not sure which and Crystal Sword (one handed). Did a bs worth of 1300 HP and a R1 for around 700 HP.

    I met the guy before. Shouldn't have deleted him from my Block List.
    Kinda hoped those guys went extinct on PS3 while I was gone. :/

    Essentially a tickstab is when you break the opponent's poise and then bs them while they're staggering. Some weapons are better for this than others and WoG is supreme at it, as are UGS r1's and greatsword dash attacks. There's no reliable way to escape it either.

    So that's what it is. I know that. I died to this many, many times. Just didn't know it has a name. happy

    People often do a running 2h R1 with a greatsword and combo it into a bs. It made me so mad that I now sport 62 Poise, so I can tank everything. Even BF.

    It takes two to make a fight tense, personally that's how I like fights tense and full on, 'trying hard' as it were, otherwise it's just dancing. I hosted and vaded moonpit, burg, township and the forest yesterday and the moonpit is the best place for duels the township was ok too.

    A tactic that will fish for hatemail almost as effectively as for backstabs is to use force instead of WoG, and run hornet ring + dagger or rapier.

    You stagger them, preferably while unlocked and not too far way, then basically just pivot BS.

    Bonus points for doing it with a chaos zwei on a giantdad and using it instead of the grass crest shield while 2 handing and hitting them with a tickstab unlocked instead of a 2h r1 unlocked ^_^. People adore such tactics.

    Even more fun since force will deflect things itself and is supremely spammable; the threat of a tickstab on it for 1/2 someone's health is simply obnoxious, not to mention a decent counter to toggle-escape at times.

    That. Full on "tryhard" or I may as well be playing saints row instead.

    @TheMelnTeam it works better with wog if your good about it (ie patient). Use it to win a trade for 500, right before a rapier bs for 1300 and an instant victory.

    I agree, but there's something to be said for utterly spamming people and doing something so nasty off of virtually no stat investment.

    It has been three days since I returned to Dark Souls. In these three days I met three guys with hacked Crystal weapons, who OHKO'd me. Before, if I met one of them in two months, it was a record.

    What the hell happened to the PS3 version while I was gone?!
