    Every time I parry someone they seem to hate me, and call me a noob. WTF

    if you spam it can be boring but parrying its hard to do specially with the freaking lag, i always send a gg to whoever parries me.

    Its not noobish, its rather difficult, Esp as parrying, like bsing, is avoidable. After the first time i'm nearly parried i start switching tactics and dead angleing to avoid it. I've never been parried more than once in a fight. (only been parried like 6 times though.)

    Stop using mechanics of the game how you are supposed to. Spam WoG and gank people like everyone else. GOSH!

    It can be if you parry in a certain way. If some gets close to you and you parry three times before they even swing, that means you are just mashing the button trying to get a riposte. If the person ran to poke you and you parried once and caught them, then that's just fighting right.

    Well that's just a good parry then, nothing unskilled about it. Maybe a bit of luck was involved but still you landed it and there's nothing "noobish" about it.

    I was parried last night by someone, but then they didn't follow up with a riposte so i managed to win, very lucky.

    To be fair every time there's a parry I congratulate them, it's hard with lag and maybe a bit of guesswork, but it's a gamble to even try it in that situation.

    Lol at that comment. Parry spam can be very annoying, but it sounds like he was butt hurt. BTW, if they are L2 mashing to parry spam, just walk behind them and BS them. You can even set them up for it.

    I love it how unfounded ragers always take words out of context like NOOB, it's like the word itself has no meaning whatsoever it's just spewed randomly.

    It's an insult that's lost all meaning. It's almost laughable now, being so overused.
