    How Far We've All Come.

    Post by DamageCK on Mon Jul 23, 2012 9:56 am

    I was just thinking back on some of my first experiences with PvP, and man I used to suck out loud. Which is not to say that I'm the bomb now, but in just a few months I've come a long way. And I think a lot of players can relate.

    And we all just keep getting better. You can see it from week to week in FC. Builds and tactics are always evolving, and we're playing smarter and more effectively. It wasn't that long ago that I first activated the Red Eye Orb, decked out and fat rolling in all the biggest, heaviest gear I could find because that's what I thought PvP was, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    And look at us now. Some of the best players I've ever fought are on this forum. Rant, Glatts, Forum, Roan, Reim, Wyrm, Billy, Sinister, Mofo, to name a few. Truth be told, I've never fought a player from the forums and thought "scrub". I'm always impressed.

    So keep getting better, guys. And continue helping me improve my game. Thanks for kickin' ***.

    It was just a fluke, trust me you normally would defeat me in a duel. I just landed a lucky few ripostes if I remember correctly.

    Just learn the cholesterol dodge, and you should be good. The timing is nice and easy with the DWGR.

    I've actually never had the pleasure of a Tolvo fight unfortunately.

    I haven't been to FC in a hot minute because I cannot get myself to leave the Demon Ruins. It's even better than the Cats.

    I'm sure THE Forest Hunter has some tricks up his sleeve.

    You can still always check out For the Glory of Alvina, I may not really play much anymore. But my advice is still there.

    And I've been left behind since I haven't been playing much since about march silly

    Seriously, I play most of you now and before I could just about fight you guys and maybe get a win here and there. Now while and can get hits in and get you down to close to death, I never feel like I could kill any of you now, you're all just too good.

    You've practiced hard, my friends Prayer

    That's true. Everyone is getting better and better, and fighting with honor the entire time.

    Double KO's everytime. Haha.

    Just the level of technique and general awareness I see from players now is awesome. Always discovering and sharing new things, and FC/the forums are a big part of that for me.

    Tolvo, don't worry I have fell from glory too... I alternate between being good at handling ganks or duels - at the moment I am crap at the game xD Only people I still beat are randoms, tbf most of the randoms aren't great - though I still beat all the youtubers frequently, I think it could be that I still haven't settled on my style I constantly am changing - I have made over 30 builds in the last few weeks all have been successful for about 5 hours and then I have gotten bored or started playing crap... I can't imagine how bad I will play when I have the 2 week break in Canada... Ah well, any advice on how to do well in pvp guys... perhaps some tutorials winking

    F**k, it seems like I have lost my self esteem and my confidence in pvp. I go into every match expecting the worst Shrug
