    I actually just followed a link from the thread I linked, I did watch some, just have no idea what is going on.

    Removing weapon switching really dumbed that game way the fuck down.

    i actually never used that shitty mechanic, fucked me over more than helped me :/

    but yeah after playing DFO i can see why a lot of people hated DFUW when the game was replaced with it. one thing i always hated was how awful players could kill top tier players because of builds, nothing like that in this game - plus so much more.

    Oh you mean when the gentlemen used to do this cheatengine trick and change/freeze armor values, then went out in robes while having dragon armor protection, yeah so good.

    I don't think that Luck was ever over hyped honestly. Whether he exploited or not doesn't take away how much skill it takes to beat the players he did in a consistent manner.

    Mages are fucking hard to kill in a 1v1 scenario in this game as a destroyer, especially good ones. Luck was absolutely destroying what are considered really good mages in the game, and that showcases major skill. It's not easy to do what he did, even without being blinded fully.

    Name one other destroyer who could do that, even with the same advantages.

    There's literally nobody else.

    Using combat exploits gives you an advantage in combat, so yes that should taint his overall skill level imo.

    Mage vs Destro was pretty well balanced towards the end, it depended on terrain and the skill level of both players mostly.

    There were a lot of good destros, the fact that all you know is Luck is more indicative of how well he marketed himself. I'll do you one better and name three destros that were good off the top of my head, "Zorak theWarslayer", Magnetic (had shit ping), and Enyx, and I could continue on... Some players would switch back and forth and played both roles very well.

    Those people were also great, but they weren't as good as Luck. Also, what exploits did he actually take advantage of other than avoiding blinds? I doubt bunny hopping counts. It taints his skill, but even with that taint on it, it still surpasses anyone else.

    My recollection is that Enyx was the first "good destroyer" and was as good as Luck or better for a long time, but that eventually Luck started consistently beating him in duels. I could be wrong.

    Enyx stopped playing the game, Luck nerded the game 24/7.

    Magnetic beat Luck in competitions, even with a ping disadvantage...

    Zorak is a doofus, but still knew how to play Destro well.

    Every good destro I played against does the same thing, Luck was no different. He just made a lot of videos, I'm not sure if his record button was ever off. Which brings me to another point about people who record every fight, I think it ruins open world PvP.

    So if it wasn't already apparent this thread isn't about who the most over hyped player is. Its just that you don't like Luck and want to shit on him hoping others will join you.

    Actually, Dim, Zorak wasn't remotely near the top of the destro food chain. The one area that he thought he was unrivaled(mounted combat) was actually the weakest aspect of his playstyle, yet he never understood that. Zorak didn't even go even melee/arch against a lot of mediocre players. Stop trolling, man.

    Oh shit, I've been had...

    * Sintan thinks I have some sort of imaginary beef with Luck
    * Animal's mind is blown, because out of the three names I mentioned he takes issue with Zorak

    Everything I say must mean nothing now, I was found out by these two super sleuths.

    Get real guys, it's okay to have some critical thought that goes against the grain of popular belief. Were talking about hype level versus skill level, I still believe the hype was far greater than the skill (at least from what I saw). A lot of people believed the hype so much, that their own game play would be affected.
