    Dueling/Invading

    Post by billy_bayonet on Sat Jul 14, 2012 10:31 pm

    Now some of you may know that dueling and invading are two different things, and we all have different mindsets for both when i invade as a Darkstalker i kill without pity or remorse invade kill invade kill, but during duels i find my self ALWAYS holding back because well if its FC im fighting freinds and nothing is more annoying then getting your bumkicked one side of sens to the other, anyway to my point.

    where is the line between your invading and dueling ive found that if i dont know the person i have no remorse in tearing them apart, but in FC if im stunlocking and the person is just about dead ill stop and give them a breather usually resulting in me getting overkilled cause they are mad you stunlocked them to oblivion which in turn makes me mad for going easy in the first place, i dont know if we can have split personalities in this game Can we go from being ruthless killers, to civilised duelists the next too many times ive wanted to BS punish a parry fisher or when the leave themselves oopen only for me to remember where i am.

    Sorry for the Rant i just thought i needed to get my thoughts out there, the duality between Invader and Dueler is hard to keep balanced. thanks for reading

    It's understandable, I try to be respectful regardless of situation, though if I'm fighting a douche/gankers then all gallantry is out the door and I fight ruthlessly.

    If I'm fighting questers I usually feel them out for a bit and switch to a weapon appropriate to their skill level. Sure, it's killed me more than once but it's how I like to lay.

    Or in duels people could just use the stunlock escape. . .

    I have no problem transitioning from ruthless to reserved, but I do have a problem in changing my fighting style. I find myself having opportunities to BS an invader and suddenly stopping. Then I realize, "Oh yeah, this is an invader lol." if I can get that down I'd be A-1.

    If its one person I follow my honour code. If its more than one, even if its a quester, I go all out.

    That why I can't switch toons too often. One minute I'm a DW fighting gankers, doing everything cheap and suffering everything cheap. Then on the second minute I'm a dueler at burg, I try never to BS and if I feel my opponent is too weak for me, I'll try to not attack so much and give them time to think, then sundetly they BS me with hornets. I don't know if I should feel guilty, angry, or worse, pity

    If I am doing PvE and somebody invades me, I will probably not be too fair to the invader. I will use all sorts of tricks.

    I am usually very aggressive on the forest too, and even double sometimes. I just have the feeling that the forest is a place of lawlessness.

    Other than that I enjoy some nice honorable duels.

    I have a fairly easy time, provided I haven't been invading in the forest. That sort of gets you in the "Kill everything that moves, and everything that doesn't" mind set. But I take a breather in between invading there and dueling. Otherwise I still play personally by FC rules when invading, though I do BS punish. If its a ganker though, or if they taunt, well then the gloves come off and I just kill them. Dueling someone is one thing, but killing almost anyone is pretty easy if you are willing to go that far.

    If I come across a solo host or a quester I'll usually drop a humanity and bow. If they charge I'll burn them to a crisp with zero remorse. If they bow then I'll gladly duel them, using my pyromancy only if they use some magic or bow/crossbow first. After all, it's fun to duel so I try to drag it out a bit.

    My PvP experience is about 95+% organized PvP (or invading into world where people are waiting to be invaded) and <5% invading questers. Because of this, I have a really hard time being ruthless. General PvP playing rules are so ingrained into me, I have a hard time playing any other way.
