    i just can't backstab in pvp

    Post by kejsan on Sun Mar 25, 2012 1:36 am

    I have played this game for +300h and its still impossible for me to land a backstab in pvp. Pve no problem, invading friends no problem there either. Random invaders, *** impossible! Even though im straight behind them i just swing with my sword at them, then suddenly they teleport behind me doing a backstab. There's no problem with my connection, and i know how to backstab correctly. Can it be the distance between the servers, like when a american invades my server (sweden)

    Dark Souls does not have servers. Most invaders just have a bad connection. Also if they are fishing for a backstab, try to backstab them too.

    it's just bad lag or lagstabs if you will, they teleport and bs you, it happens, you just have to get good at it, there's videos on youtube that show you how to counter all that.

    You're just falling for some basic bsing techniques. Its the "circle straff like a ******* moron" technique, the counter bs in one of the videos will destroy those guys. hopefully the videos help you out.

    The only time I ever get back stabbed is when I'm invaded by two people at once, and when that happens, it's backstab-fest 2012.

    "Hey bro, I'ma distract this guy while you backstab him, and when he turns to you, I'll do the same thing!"

    I noticed that a lot of players try to go directly at the person and then try to get behind him. But the key is to keep a little distance and circle your opponent.

    Try this video( this is not the bs counter video)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsD9o0OGPIk

    Its a video dealing with the basics of the BS. I know you said youve got 300+ hours, but you may get something from the vid.

    Thanks guys, I can now (mostly) avoid getting backstabed and win most of my matches, not by backstabs tho hehe. Still find that hard to do without getting counter stabed lol

    if they're counter stabbing you, either you're too obvious, or you're a tad slow about it and they're getting lucky.
