    what do you perfer while in a duel?

    Post by isthefridge on Wed Aug 01, 2012 11:30 am

    Ever try to trade blows against a weapon buffed with SLB or DMB?

    Ever have an awsome duel and lost but felt compelled to msg the person and thank them and give them a big GG?

    Ever go into a duel going for complete domination?

    How do you duel? and what do feel is the perfecxt fight?

    My favorite duels are ones where I end up shocked. The first time I saw MLGS+Velka's for WotG I was flabberghasted that I just got Wrathed by this guy zoning me with mlgs and HCSM, and it HURT.

    I enjoy the variety these sorts of things bring. Sure I've been against mlgs+hcsm before but I hadn't yet had my roll punished by wrath from them. Or the first time I got to experience a fat rolling ultra vit.

    When I duel I don't want it to feel "scripted"

    I mostly buffed because almost every build I have is a hybrid. But now I buff if they buff, or buff if my weapon is very weak. (Hand Axe or rapier).

    Aim it puts a smile on my face each time we invade the same world as FH. GG sir...GG

    Wyrm - I have grown to be wary of anyone wielding rapiers Hornets ring goes hand in hand all to often. But if i saw you buff a hand axe i believe i would take that challenge.

    I like to have a duel with full buffs on me and full buffs on my opponent. More tense and like Bushido blade.

    I prefer a challenging opponent.
    My best 3 fights have to go to Her Evil Panties. Her Evil Panties is a level 230 forest hunter, ranked 18 in the book of the guilty. She fights with the Large Club, Rapier, and the occasional Shotel for opponents like me.

    She beat me 1 time, and i beat her 2. She DOMINATED me the first time she beat me, barely took off a fourth of her health, the other two times i won with like 50 HP remaining. Very good duelist.

    She responded to her loss by saying "Thankyou master Rynn, i will train harder till we meet again". An epic person they were.

    I prefer a lot of different things, sometimes you just want to beat the turds outta people, sometimes you want to have the turds beaten out of you (as you stretch your limits), but I always go with the intend of not only winning, but destroying my opponent, even though it is unlikely to happen, its a good mindset to be in.

    fighting people in fat looking armor. The most halariosu thing to see a guy in one running around....also everyone i have met wearing fat armor tends to be an awesome guy....even if they arent the best players XD

    other: don't really care as long as they're not teleporting across the screen from lag or healing.

    if they heal ill just divine bless myself anyways and its ds all over again.

    to me... all i really care about is having a good fight. i'll start out with your basic "good manner" rules but i don't really care what the rules are as long as we're on the same playing field. the fun is out thinking them and countering their tactics, even if they're considered cheap.

    to me, rematching a player who does something "cheap" and beating the bejesus out of them the next time with their own tactics is pretty awesome imo.

    I have nothing against OP. but there are times where it just doesnt seem necessary. I'm running around with a darksword. I was summoned in the Burg this player was using a washing pole buffed with Sunlight blade. So im already beat in range and attack power. Also theres a good chance he is higher in level since i dropped my RSS. I got a few hits in before i died in 3 or 4 good strikes. Anyone picking up RSS to OP an opponent should arent looking for a duel all they want to do is beat the piss out of the opponent. then send a GG.

    people will enjoy the game in different ways.

    I have done that before only to get into an arguement over xbl. Its best just to fight them and get it over with.

    I respect every opponent that don't use backstabs, that's really lame considering some ppl got little lags.
    And Best fights are chalenged ofcourse, I'd rather try to match to the opponent, using magic/buffing only againts stronger foes.

    Any Gravelord/Dragon Invader got my special greetings!

    you can counter their attempts at backstabbing you... if they try a roll stab and you're not attacking just pivot parry while unlocked. or whatever you want really, hitting them works too.
    if they try a running stab stay locked on and back peddle and move to the left/right, you'll swing behind them.
    if its just plain old strafing just kung fu kick them and unleash r1 fury spam.

    you've been backstabbed and they're going for a chainstab? either roll into them if they're waiting on top of you. if they're trying to predict your roll, roll away from where they're running too and if you feel you'll be trapped or they're sprinting into you.. don't do anything at all. you're character has a second of backstab invulnerability if you don't do anything, so you can just trade blows. or poise backstab them if you have it stacked at all.

    why not try to learn a game mechanic thats been with the soul series from the beginning, rather than playing around it?

    heres a video of what i'm talking about.

    Nice video, I will try those method to defend for sure, that will bring much of variety from standing close to wall all the time.

    Also slowing spells/weapons work fine from preventing BS

    I enjoy a ganker situation every now an then. Last night on Xbox i was participating in a FC in Demon Ruins. The same two gankers kept picking my sign up. After three failed attempts to kill me, the third attempt ended with the host running to ceaseless fog gate. I helped him through with a BS. that was the last time i got picked up by them last night.
