Japanese players were for the most perfectly fair, the end of my session was against Americans only, and it was the worst, I had everything, backstab when I'm bowing to them, 3vs1 on spawning point, 2vs1 + TWoP on spawning, taunt, sure this is not all the players, but hell it was a majority of them.
I sure prefer to face someone with a lag issue to deal with, than someone making the pvp of this game useless.
This thread is in no way supposed to be about who acts "more fair" in pvp. It is about how lag that is caused by long distances can be a big problem.
I personally would never
like to have lag issues rather than an "unfair" fight.
And doing everything the game allows you to to win in a fight is never unfair! The game makes the rules, not the players! (I would never try to kill someone as he's spawning though)
Lag is unfair! Because it is never supposed to be there! On your screen it looks like your opponent is teleporting behind you, on his screen it looks like you were just standing around, not reacting in time, like you would be just bad at the game.
I'm just helpless when a japanese is invading me. For example, I get invaded, we do a bow and everything and then we run towards each other. I'm dancing around with him for like half a minute being so scared, but then I try to hit him with my demon spear poking from behind my shield, because that seems to be the safest way for me to engage laggers. But I just can't hit him, altough it looks like. Then I decide to just poke him like mad, holding the spear in both hands. It looks like I hit him on screen and the lightning animation is there, but nothing happens to him or his health bar, instead he's suddenly teleporting behind me. After I managed somehow that he could not pull off a second backstab, we are dancing around again for like another minute. With like 5% health left I'm thinking I should better run now and try to use an Estus. I start moving backwars to get him as far away from me as possible. As he is about 5 metres away from me, I turn around and start running for my life, but, you guessed it: stabbed again! Seemingly out of nowhere!
This is like every fight goes for me with a japanese. And it could
be so much fun...
Didn't you ever experience it like that?
