    I would change running with greatshield animations. It shouldn't look like you are swinging them around like they are nothing cause you don't see that crap with the other high strength weapons, the kind where it's resting on your shoulders. I want to see it braced against the arm or something, but by god not flying around like it's a paperweight....

    Add me to the nerf/remove backstabs column. I'm tired of getting backstabbed by someone who was still in front of me, or 15 feet behind me, or on the other side of a tree, or while I was rolling sideways etc. One option would be to only have it be permissible if your victim is at 20% stamina or less. Otherwise it makes no sense that they would just stand there paralyzed for 1-2 seconds while you wind up on their back. Another is to make it so you can only backstab with certain weapons. Seeing someone get backstabbed with smough's hammer actually made my head hurt.

    Regarding backstabs, I was thinking that a good way to modify them would be to add a stat to shields called "critical damage reduction," or something. So when the shield is on your back it would reduce backstabs by a %. Makes sense, I mean it is on your back, after all.

    It'd also be kind of a reward for PVPing shieldless. It'd make for some fun fights, too.

    And if you wear a shield on your back like the spiked shield, crystal shield, or that one Siegmeyer uses a backstabber could even take damage too.

    Wouldn't you prefer additional stability instead of additional physical defense? IMO, anywhere from 85-95% defense more than does the trick once armor is factored in.

    I'd have them fix the bs so I can't bs anyone from the side anymore. As it stands now I can easily land backstabs on almost every normal mob w/out ever being behind them. Add in lag to PvP and you can land it in front of someone. That's a broken mechanic. I know it can be countered, but it doesn't mean it isn't broken.

    I don't have a problem w/ any other aspects of the game.

    I don't really mind, either tbh, I rarely pvp since I'm a co-op guy, and in the rare pvp occurrence I usually two hand my weapon.

    Yup BS for me as well, I know that normally you can punish backstabbers but all methods put a requirement on you to specifically build to punish them.

    Also even if backpedalling/circling works they will just keep following you around and around until they can get an opening and as soon as you want todo something active you are toast (and add lag to the calculation and you dont even know what your safety zone is...).

    Put most of all I am tired of every match being started with two people trying to see if they can get behind the other. I usually counter circle to keep them in front and then they realise it wont be as easy and they start to buff... its just stupid that all games start with the same intent...

    And also if you are trying to do a 2v1 or 3v1 when they all try to backstab you its just not something you can work with...
