    Boring PvP

    Post by Tristan on Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:59 pm

    I joined the darkmoon's last night on my role play character and holy f****ing S*** this is getting incredibly redundant. 99.9999999999999999999% of the time everyone goes for a back stab. 55% of the time someone has a white phantom to help them back stab. This is getting so boring. In various areas there were at least 3-4 bloodstains where it shows the character who died, dying with a back stab. On one occasion I counted a total of 12 bloodstains with back stabs.

    In most cases with me being around SL.50ish and having a charcoal resined +10 laito and power within I can out pace these guys by a whole lot, but when all it takes is one lagged and/or glitched back stab the game gets incredibly repetitive and boring. I don't even go for back stabs and find it boring and predictable.

    2 out of every 3 players I invade go in for a back stab. usually with an elemental weapon. This tells me that there is something very fundamentally wrong with how back stabs work in general and how PvP plays out.

    My Solution= Take BS out completely and make a riposte the only critical damage available.

    The best Solution= I'm not that far yet.

    While a lot of these percentages are made up they are based around my actual experiences lately. For instance, everyone I fought last night went for a back stab though some of them back out of it once they realized I wasn't going to let them do it so easily. 3 out of the first 5 matches had white phantoms and 1 out of those 3 was a dragon/bow glitcher.

    Why is no one talking about this?

    No point, we all know people do it. Removing backstabs isn't a good idea though. Heres why.

    The fix for me has always been just making it harder to perform backstabs, other than that connection is connection.

    Change your play-style. Learn to attack in such ways that don't leave you
    vulnerable to being back-stabbed.
    The best way to learn this, would be to practice with someone who is good
    at back-stabbing, and for them to just keep on going for them.
    With practice, their will come a point at which they simply cannot back-stab
    you any more.

    @Forum Pirate

    I assume you wanted me to read Vageta's post?

    @Tolvo

    Yes, that could very well fix the back stab issue.

    @omega elf

    With all due respect sir I did not say that I was being back stabbed.

    It's sad but that's the reality of random PvP. Backstabs are way too OP and easy to perform.

    We shouldn't have to create pvp groups. It should be something we want to do. Do you agree?

    It is slightly annoying when you are standing inches in front of someone and then suddenly get backstabbed when you are face to face with them.

    no. backstabs have been apart of the souls series from the beginning.
    and when someone tries to backstab you, they leave themselves open to a backstab.
    punish them for trying and don't go for them yourself if you feel it's a problem.

    So now you are going to troll me? If you need to say something to me or want to discuss differences you can always pm me to clear it up. I really would rather keep personal quarrels off the public forums.

    because Forum Pirate disagrees and provides relevant information each time it makes him not a troll. Because you don't like my opinions and bring up irrelevant or repeated information makes you trolling right now.

    This is a heated topic which has been discussed ad nauseam. Please keep it civil, or this thread is getting locked.
