    Playing Drunk...

    Post by Noob-of-Artorias on Mon Aug 13, 2012 1:55 am

    I'm normally completely sober, but today was my brothers birthday and we celebrated....and it happend to be open bar.

    6 Mai Tais
    3 Cuba Libres
    3 Beers
    3 Shots of Whiskey

    Now I'm almost completely gone, and I decided to say, "to know what would be fun? DARK SOULS!"

    Seven forest invasions later, I had to turn the game off out of embarassment...I'll see you guys in the morning....If I'm alive...

    I regret... Nothing. :drunken:

    Actually when I play drunk I destroy everyone and relax more. My procentual success when drunk is close to 90% and I'm not even kidding. Drunkness op! This may lead to problems with the alcohol in the future...

    On Saturday night I got totally hammered and decided to invade with my SL 54 in the Tomb. I spent more time accidentally rolling off of cliffs than I did actually giving anybody a challenge. Embarrassing, but fun. tongue

    Reminds of me Super Mario 64; we always wondered why there wasn't any "Beer Cap Mario".

    I don't need to be drunk. All I need is imagination.

    I think what the OP has said has a ring of truth; you don't play better when you're mildly drunk, you play better when you're relaxed and confident. If you're in a tight fight, or you lose a lot of souls that are critical to you, people find it tougher to retrieve it than to lose it, as there's more on the line.

    Being relaxed and confident is key; when you are not, you actually lose your fine motor control skills as the 'fight and flight' adrenaline response kicks in. Your blood vessels tighten so that if you are cut, you lose less blood, and a bunch of other things that I can't remember.

    I believe this is why people in the army are trained heavily to not be afraid; fear will cause them to miss/get themselves killed.

    I also play much better with some alcohol in me -- not drunk, but at about 2 beers. I'm more aggressive and stop overthinking things, and am pretty close to unkillable for that brief, shining Popeye + spinach moment. But it's really hard to maintain the perfect level of buzz for more than maybe 15 minutes, and then I usually get pummeled.

    Yep, seems like people are just stopping themselves. I know I occasionally choke in stressful situations, and mistime a crucial parry or some other mistake that gets me killed. Then, if I equip a ring of sacrafice, I'm not stressed at all and can usually retrieve what I lost without incident.
