    Post by MsCherryBlossom Sun May 27, 2012 7:42 pm

    So I been recently becoming more active in this wiki and noticed how much I am able to make an individual whine about my choice of playing on Dark Souls. So I decided to try out the "honor" jazz people rave so much about (even though I thought of it to be maybe the dumbest thing ever).

    I chose to use my low level toon at level 15 for this experiment.

    First invasion, I see invader and im quite sure he is able to see me. I do the bow gesture and he does as well. I then wait till he is close and use great combustion. I then get a mail getting called a cheater. Where's my respect at? I did the bow thing.

    Second invasion, I bow to the boy or girl and then I legit beat them. I get tears over using a hornets ring. Where's my respect at dude I won fair and square.

    Final invasion I bow then win legit again. I drop a prism stone on them and run in circles as a mean of me celebrating. No mail from this person though.

    During my time playing as a honor person I was extremely bored all I got was called a cheater. So I think my original style of play is just well suited for me. The well what is it gesture and prism stone dropping is just too fun to give up for that.

    But at least I tried..... and hated it. Proper Bow

    There's a cool bow icon for you ^^

    well least you tried it, but as far a playing with "honour" goes, if you dont actually enjoy what your doing your not gna have a good time and honour is subjective its different in other peoples eyes , just prepare yourself for some form of argument on this topic soon

    well for me to actually say anything, you would have to elaborate on exactly how everyone knew you were using the hornets ring. bowing and then bsing isnt exactly whats considered honor.

    But, you were not bored because you bowed before the fights, you were bored because you killed them all in one or two hits. With all respect, where is the fun in doing that?

    Make a SL120 and a build that don't kill anyone in one hit, host some matches and then come to tell your experiences. I believe 100% you will feel much better

    @ noodlr
    Where is it going? Im not mocking anyone nor is there any flaming. How about you just not read the thread if you dislike me giving this wiki's playstyle a try and not liking it.

    @billy
    I don't see why there would be any argument, I at least gave it a chance.

    @Barry
    I bowed at the people and didn't act "rude" when I won.

    He said sl 15, with a full pyro glove, bellowing dragon ring, and Oolice helmet, GC does around 700 or 800 damage.

    Well, you gave the 'ole college go. I say play your way and enjoy. It is your $60 after all. Honestly, without different playstyles, pvp would be stale and unexciting. I would be down to duel you in your own environment anytime you wanted. happy

    I understand the subjective ideals of honour. i also understand the subjective ideals gamestyle. However, this post only brought thing to mind when i read it, and it is not against playstyle:

    hmm never really used it that often, and like i said honour is subjective, you have to find a group of people with the same views as yourself and play with them, for most of us on the wiki thats the FC, and give her credit she did try the whole bowing thing and didnt enjoy it

    No problem man/girl. You see, its all matter of persective, as everyone says. If you enjoy one shot builds, I respect that, and if you invade me, I will bow and fight you. If you win, no matter how, I will send a GG.

    Thanks for reading my opinion I tried playing like everyone else  3510096238

    You said you dropped prism stones and ran in circles.. that if that isn't rude I dunno what is.

    Look, by your description, you weren't playing really as "honourable", or at least what I see it as. I don't BS unless i get BS'd and NEVER use the hornets ring

    dunno what the guy was on about with combustion.. maybe you just spammed it? Or you had a ascended +5 pyro glove at SL15, which people would presume you BB glitched hence why..

    You need to do proper honour at SL120 to get it, at SL15 there's nothing but BB glitchers and noobs for the most part, the worst SL to PvP at in my opinion.

    Thats the thing, I TRIED doing the whole not attack while they bowed at me, not doing rude gestures. I can slightly see how it appeals to some, but not for me.

    @Acidic
    Was that some attempt to insult at me? (It was horrible if it was)

    @Cloud
    Im nearly there just preoccupied (Dragon's Dogma) and if I even do fight you I wont go by any rules you might want to put forward.

    @Serious
    This is a new one, whats proper honor dueling?

    I you can easily tell if you opponent is a BB glitcher or a newbie by equipment and play style. Newbie normally wears starting or underated gear, drake sword or lightining spear, aways have a shield raised and almost never ninja flip, and often spam spells like fireball or soul arrow

    Unlike BB glicthers with lightning katanas, Full Giants and infinite amount of divine blessings I tried playing like everyone else  2707236321

    Well for one, not BSing, not using weapons that are beyond sensible means of your opponents (like seriously max pyro glove at SL15?), and generally not being rude..

    I think it's a bit strange that you feign ignorance to a concept that's blatantly obvious.. I think really you're doing it on purpose.

    I don't like the Katana's and hate the way the giants look. I use a broadsword

    I used my BB toon but the people I fought im quite sure they did too. The guy I BS was wearing the Brass armor with a Quelaags Furysword so it's not like im hunting noobs.

    As for your last bit that I literally laughed at, excuse me for not learning about your precious concept of "proper honor" playing. Im not sorry if I don't know how it's "supposed to be done". I think you're just upset someone is different and doesn't share same ideals as majority.

    I respect you trial and error, at least your opinion is informed. Really it's just your tone.
