    Backstab strangeness

    Post by kiwi_commander on Fri Mar 16, 2012 11:43 am

    So I was invading Anor Londo yesterday with my LV58 King Jeremiah Build, things weren't going well as the day before. Encountered several people running havels and casters but had a lot of fun.
    On one invasion I met this caster and his summon companion, I bow and I start dueling with the phantom. I was able to kill the phantom. Then I proceed to take on the host. Somehow I was able to get a back stab on him. Back stab animation starts, he flies off, then suddenly I fly off and he takes no damage.
    I was very confused by this but kept dueling. Later I was able to beat him with some heavy pyromancy.

    Has anyone encountered this random "back stab don't work anymore"?

    Quite often actually, it seems to happen more often when u lagstab somebody and they move just slightly. It's annoying but meh, u can always get the cheap hit in when they stand up.

    That happened to me about a million times by now. I think I heard/read it's some weird mechanic that is supposed to compensate for the lag or something, I don't know exactly. Some of the other people here should be able to explain this a little better silly sry

    ...or correct me if I'm totally mistaken...

    Addition: Btw, it happens to me (meaning: myself gets backstabbed and takes no damage) almost everytime when my opponent manages to horribly lagstab me, while my I'm in the middle of some attack animation...

    I think it happens more if you lagstab them but you get hit aswell (but don't take damage). It is rather odd.

    It always happens to me when I think I've backstabbed them, but instead I go through the animation.

    As far as I know, it happens when you both attack each other simultaneously. One goes for the lagstab, but the other one, on his end, attacked. You'll go through the backstab animation but the hit will have canceled it out, so no backstab damage. Sometimes you'll get damage from the hit though.

    it can happen in 2 different ways 1 a bs on a lagstab n they counter eachother out or 2 if the bser takes damage right as the animation starts no damage will be delt in the bs i herd a rumor that if you perry at the same time as you get bs there will be no damage too but i never tryed it
