I was trying to get ranks in the Brotherhood of Blood covenent, but I think I'll abandon the idea, I'm getting sick of PvP.
Online, you encounter always the same thing :
- Buffed katana's and their laggy thrust of doom
- Buffed greatswords and their laggy thrust of doom
Now and then, you encounter some guy with original playstile, like this one using dual rapiers, not powerstanced, hitting with one, then the other, having somewhat better speed than if attack with only one... Or this guy with Ironclad armor two handing Havel's shield (which was annoying, but refreshing at the same time). But that's rare exemples. Other rarities are those who find ways to cheese their way like this guy and his buffed dagger, ALWAYS lagstabbing. The magic spammers seems to be less prominent, but those who still resorts on spells are so good at it you must be really cautious.
Before I knew it, I was myself resorting on cheap technique to try and climb the ranks. I think the "-1 killcount" is actually ruining the stuff, because it makes people use cheap tricks to win... actually more than they would without it. When a guy has a glowing aura, you know he will kill you in two or three swings, roll under all your attacks and/or lagstab you. Add to this the modded characters of doom you encounter from time to time and it makes the PvP a sad mess. Guys who PvP for fun seems to be non-existent.
Am I the only one to feel this way ?
