    Yeah I remember you from DFO, you played the same way back then :p And while melee does take some skill, stickybacking is more about ping and race. And just endlessly running towards someone mashing left click just looks silly tbh.

    Thats why any players worth his weight "Who likes melee" uses magic as an assistance to push melee. The only time id ever charge in a straight line towards someone is if their back is turned or they are casting a long cast time spell

    To be honest in the majority of your fights most of what you do is just straight up force melee encounters again and again. There are very few magic trades. I'm not criticizing the way you fight, i'm just saying it looks silly. I think melee needs an overhaul to make it more intuitive than just white hit spamming. Power attacks should be more efficient to use for one. Granted I don't want UW style combat where you have abilities that look half magic/half melee either. https://forums.darkfallriseofagon.com/threads/more-dynamic-melee.2360/#post-42494 I made some suggestions which I still think could play out nicely, but unfortunately didn't go over that well with most.

    melee can easily be avoided, it's nice to see different playstyles.

    I agree, I just want to see melee that's more than what it currently is.

    You're making no sense.

    You should try to find the beauty in simplicity.

    my shitty ideas. I'd like to see something like that. When I stickyback someone to death I feel cheap about it, it's not satisfying to me. I'd rather feel like I earned killing someone in under 10 seconds. Granted I get what you mean by simplicity, cause on the other hand it's damn satisfying to land 8 arrow hits in a row and kill someone. But that's because that takes more skill imo.

    shit when i sticky back someone i get outa my chair and high five myself. Go look at the idiots on DND forums and i think you'll think twice about proposing changes. Ego babies like adun east who want to ad peddle around and shoot a bow and win fights are all over those forums. The vast majority of players in mmo's want to grind their way to victory and play tab targets / assisted aim bs and call it skillful. I find it funny they don't acknowledge the total blunder fuck that was DFUW.

    So those times back in the day when I simply tried to change weapons and it spammed system with paperdoll lock for 5 straight seconds, and I died because I could not do anything were just me mashing my buttons too quickly?

    Good vid.

    I was helping 3 brand new players with binds when Lars came along. Went from 0 to 100 real quick, and honestly I underestimated Lars as 4 years ago Lars. Won't make that mistake again :p Annoying to watch you melee me through that eye rot from your perspective.

    Thank you for the fight :) Was very respectable that your people allowed me to gank, and did not interfere, When servers pop up, We can go at it again :)

    2:12... Why even include this clip? PVP should only be performed between two consenting adults.
    5:58... Seriously, what the hell? This dude didn't even fight back! This is like watching the wrestling team beat up the chess team. And guess what? Nobody cheers for the wrestling team bro.

    That Jedi Academy video is mind numbing.

    Aristos is still president of the I Hate Melee club. Love you man, but having flashbacks to endless post duel conversations with you and Chersk about why melee and knockups are cheese. (Just embrace them!)

    I've always been under the impression that yes, if you get locked up it is because the server is still processing your previous input.

    One of the ways to become an insane pvper in this game was to not only know exactly how your client was responding to the server with your ping but to feel it and compensate for it automatically. You could always tell when someone had it down, they were the ones always a step ahead of others in ranged/melee transitions.
