    BEHIND YOU!

    Post by Lmaousine on Thu Jul 11, 2013 1:51 am

    Does anyone besides me actually look behind themselves after receiving a message like this?

    No lol.  In-game maybe, but I've probably already looked.  This isn't the kind of game where you are OK not knowing that something is behind you, even if you have a good headset.  Every once in a while you get a guy with slumbering ring or is otherwise quiet and that can end very poorly.

    I have been playing Team Sneaking part of Metal Gear Online for two years. In this game, you fight an enemy team that is completely invisible, but they have a shadow, leave footprints, their footsteps and other actions make a faint sound and you can see their weapons, if they have equipped any. Thanks to this game I developed a habit of always knowing what is in my immediate surroudings, check corners and dark places as I walk around them both in games and irl.

    So I know if there's someone behind me even before receiving such message.

    ...I should see some sort of doctor to help me get rid of this...

    I'm normally looking around corners a lot and using the camera to see if the invader/host is ever trying to get a BS in before the fight.

    No.

    I am usually the one sending this message.
    Have yet to do it in Dark Souls though.

    Never received a message like this. if I did get one, of course I would check behind me, as long as I know that there is an invader in my world.

    Get into a corner or somewhere where your back is, turn up volume, safe open message and the moment you hear metal....close the message and block with a shield.

    No guarantee you'll hear metal though.  Hush, slumbering, or light equipment and you can be completely blindsided.  Best to stay on guard and ignore such messages outright.

    These messages are best for non-3rd person view games like call of duty vs campers.  That's probably the funniest time I've seen it employed.  As soon as they turn around knife them, or send them a message saying "don't move" after planting a claymore behind lol.

    In DS though nobody is going to allow such easy cheapshots unless they're AFK or so new that it'd be more fun to troll in different ways happy.

    I haven't received one of those but I wouldn't look behind me and here's why:

    As soon as I see/hear the indicator that I'm being invaded I will go the nearest easily defensible position and wait for them to come to me.  Battle, whenever possible, happens on my terms.  If I'm the one doing the invading, until I've sighted the host, I will move while almost constantly swinging the camera around. If you're good enough to get behind me in the very brief window you'd have time for it, you deserve the win.  That's not a knock on players. The way the game is set up, it's very difficult to sneak up on anyone with experience if they're using their camera to it's full advantage.  


    With that being said, I can say from my forest explorations (particularly with my foggy glass cannon  runs) that many people have their blinders on.  I've actually cast power within AND sunlight blade while the host was oblivious to me being right behind him.

    No. As sentinel said, I almost always know my immediate surroundings. A combination of snowboarding, wrestling/jujitsu and general waryness taught me the value of always knowing where I am and where other things are in relation to me, even if I cannot see them.

    I do it in games just out of force of habit.
