    My fall from glory...

    Post by TehInfamousAmos on Mon Jul 23, 2012 4:18 pm

    Well guys some of you know me as that **** *** that beats a lot of people... 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

    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 But seriously I either suck arse at pvp or I am playing retardedly good players and my internet can't help me... it was similar with other games - Fighting games on LAN I would always win, when it came to online my internet would let me down and not let me pull off any of my tricks or skills...

    Anyway, I am starting to lose motivation to play this game because constantly losing cause of my connection is frustrating - don't say try fight club because no offence I just cba with it anymore... It will just further lower my self esteem and turn me into a steaming pile of crap.

    Well - I am in your hands now

    Jason.

    the same thing has been hapening to me, i was ok at best so i dont care about it much but i think we're just getting bored of the game, its hard to enjoy a game as much as the first day you got it. i would say just take some weeks or months off, maybe it'll help, i did but it didnt help much so i got new games instead whichs holod be coming tonight, hope that helps.

    Evening Amos. Rant is right, a change is as good as a rest. Drop the PvP, scale back on your DkS playtime, and devote what time you have to co-op and PvE. If this doesn't work, drop DkS altogether for a month or so, play a completely different game during this time, and I'm sure when the time feels right you'll come back refreshed and stronger than ever.

    It's always a terrible feeling to lose skill at something you used to do well, I'd be thankful it's just a game. My advice is to take a break, wait until the DLC comes out and jump into it with some enthusiasm. You might have to relearn a bit of PvP but you might also find your skills just needed a break and it'll come back to you.

    Did this maybe partly come about from watching Pep's Twitch, and seeing him kick *** with the most ridiculous weapon set-ups lol? I felt rather outmatched after watching him do that, and decided to up my game with completely new builds. Maybe that could help you? Find a niche in something you don't see often and try and make it your own. I think there's still a lot of room for individuality in the game, and that helped me when I got fed up as well.

    I usually invade exclusively when I'm tired of dueling. All of a sudden the game rules again. I just wander from spot to spot, none of the regular PvP zones, and goof around.

    It is only a game after all. Sounds like it's time to take a break and try something else.

    I think it's fine. It might be a rough spot, though if you're not having as much fun anymore a 2 week vaycay in Canada may be just what the doctor ordered.

    Depends on the YTer. (Edited) has definitely stepped up his game. Watched a vid he just posted and he's got the skillz.

    Yes, it's true oftentimes YouTubers aren't the gold standard.

    Case in point:

    YT ID's aren't gamertags. Not only that, but they're already public and I really doubt they'd frown upon the notoriety...

    I'm referring more to such youtubers as D_Invader, JBlackmel, Jahames, NikOfTime, sometimes Bushido, Caroso and KnewGaming. Not James xD though his playthrough was funny to watch silly

    I lately had lot to work and only hosted the 225 on wednesday, didnt played much cause of the work. And recently i had an accident so i was in hospital. Now im started again making new toons,trying other weapons and stuff. Begore i was mostly one of the strongest players who wields the great scythe and claws, but when i started back i got punished in so many ways so im pushed niw to get better. All here has earned some serious skills now. The easy win duells are over now!

    But it motivates me to get better and i love that feeling

    I saw you fire whip Knew. That's exactly why I always use Chaos Fire Whip on all my pyro builds. The damage potential of that cast is insane.

    I think the reason why I'm sucking is because I try so hard to have an individual build and look etc; xD

    I'm doing the same with my pyro build. Blue skin, Balder leggings, Silver bracers, Dusk Crown which I swap out for Thief hood against buffs or MLGS. Bare chest. Looks awesome, but it's hardly maximized. Only got 1489 hp also. I figure it'll kind of force me to up my game 'cause I'll get tired of dying all the time pretty quick.

    It's a hell of a challenge, but I think it's helping. When one hit from pretty much anything rips through at least a third of your health, it'll change your playstyle real quick. Haha.

    Amos, hope you have a good time in Canada. In my opinion take your two week break and eat poutine, it will put hair on your chest and revitalize your game winking

    A pitcher or two of maple syrup couldn't hurt either
