    Backstab question

    Post by ScaryPirateDude on Sat Aug 04, 2012 10:08 pm

    I was invading as a darkmoon blade and somehow, when I was fighting a dude, he back stabbed me while he was facing me. Is that a glitch or a poor internet connection?

    Lag. Judging lag is very important, on his screen he was behind you when it happened. Gotta think a second ahead.

    Front stabs are really hard to predict, even if you are thinking ahead. Frustrating, but gotta just move on.

    dude... standing behind the player pressing r1 and getting backstabbed to have both of you get backstabbed.

    weirdest thing i've ever seen. we both stood up and were like wtf just happened? he then proceeded to teleport around again.

    The counter bs has that effect if you're not quite fast enough to land your own bs but are quick enough to stop theirs.

    I hate when that happens...... I end up calling people lag-stab noobs. I guess I should realize thay dont know what I am talking about when they reply saying "what?"

    I got mad once in the burg and I kept invading the same guy taking advantage of it. He would wait in the corner and when he was about to lose teleport behind me and backstab. It seemed too intentional because he taunted after matches and did this everytime I faced him while he was low health.

    That person probably had a lag switch. You'll see them stop for a bit, then suddenly appear directly behind you for the BS.
