    I am laughing at the description you have for what I do. I sit and wait for someone to engage so I can do something. That something is Spam snipe, I never am in anyone's face, and its because I lack skill that this seems hard. Oh yea, no offense...lol

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yes, yes that's it. My god its so clear now. :) I love how you say this below. This is perfect, its like a well thought out, intelligent flowing piece that essentially says "you suck" but explains the sucking in a clear and concise "suck box" that you are putting me in. No offense of course.

    **There is a reason why you don’t run a normal nb build that doesn’t rely on ganking, because you would not perform as well as you do now. It would require to be upfront on the enemies face and not just far away ganking or behind a group. It would require you to manage your buffs better and to actually work on a rotation to kill people and use more than just a couple of skills. ***

    So, I got work to do. Apparently I am set up so I have no resource management needs they are all fulfilled and on auto-pilot. All I do is sit behind people who are fighting and I wait until they do engage or else my cyro life is sitting still, Ganking/teabagging afk players, Talking mad shi- to resource npc's, and wishing I had more to do than node farming without help. By your description in my style of play I hit maybe 2 skills max. I mean as you say to learn a rotation would be a bit much for me since I choose to play the class that the low/no skill newbies play because they can suck but still outperform their masked, actual "PVP-gutter-skill-level" and kill much superior button pushing elites like yourself.

    I love this game.

    Snipe ganking in No CP is the most intellectually challenging and physically demanding playstyle that ESO offers.



    I had a lot of fun last night on Sotha. My group was trying out a brand new concept and we had a blast doing it. Hopefully we can be on a little earlier on Friday night.

    To be fair to hoff, its alot harder than it looks, BUT it still requires less skill than a duel/1vx, for obvious reasons. The part where the gank requires building/skill is ending the fight before it becomes a duel/1vx

    EP zerging and denying it, AD zerging and still awful, DC nightcapping and only playing when Fengrush is running his zerg.

    What do all 3 have in common? Zerging. 1vX in Sotha is impossible with the slow meta and without CP to provide mitigation. That's why there are so many groups in Sotha, stop complaining about numbers and just play.

    I play on all 3 factions regularly lately. While I do not lament the demise of 1vX in sotha, this is probably the most accurate synopsis of the current situation I have seen.

    Idk if you remember me in game but I remember fighting you and sneaky shawt a lot on my dc and ep toons when you where on ad, I really didn’t mean to offend but that is how you played when you were fighting me and that is how you played when I was on ad and would see you on in cyro, but if you have changed your playstyle since then, then props too you sorry for assuming that’s how you still played.

    Also I have played a snipe spammer build just to troll before so I know how skilless it is to play

    That video is hilarious. I don't think that represents me but I do think its funny as hell. His opponents are not Flame Of Hades level by any means. Speaking of the Devil Fl-Of-Ha I appreciate the kind words and specifically I totally agree that my second most important thing to do is not get into a duel scenario. It absolutely is something that takes more button practice and button skills, cause we are pressing buttons here. Buch of elitist button masters. :) I think I am better at the aspect of engaging with back bar than I was for a long, long time on AD but yea the goal isn't to impress you with my heavy attack weave and animation cancelling. I am not built for dueling anyway. I would say maybe 25% of my kills involve an ambush/surprise/Incap etc. I don't think that is so strange. I have seen some NB that are f=great at f2f stuff like Mik-Mak and obviously others. Bottom line is if I suck soooooo bad and I am outperforming via my class then sweet, look what I can do, I'm killing you. Come and get me. You should enjoy that more anyway. Nothing satisfies like a good "shut him up" virtual lancing.

    But I will say this again. I am old. I don't care if I am not the most feared player in a 2-d universe of orcs and sorcs because my bar swap and light/heavy weave technique is flawless....I mean seriously. LOL. If that is all you got in life and you need that to be amazing and make life fun then cool. (See Shockables stream for this scenario of reporting anyone who kills him and trolling via whispers) I am just playing this cause I have worked hard enough so I can play when I want to laugh at it. I blame my bow fetish on Gauntlet back in the 80's I was always the elf. Always......4 of my buds would go spend all our money (5 bucks for 36 tokens) and sit on that machine and play as long as we could. Speed, survivability, range, all of it. I am a product of society, dont judge me....:)

    Stop thinking the "campaign" represents anything but an extra set of virtual purple jewelry and your pain will cease. Its been fun as hell (last week or so anyway)in the eves between BRK and Sej.

    Lol, @Thogard they did the same thing to our 9 person group at Nik too, was ridiculous. We were up close between porch and postern though so only one of ours got away I think. This was while other DC were capping the last emp keep too so who knows what their plan was besides stealth zerging smaller numbers.

    Also, some clips of ours from last week. Literally my first week on stamden in Cyrodiil so please excuse my terrible play.



    I look at this and just shake my head at my earlier clips. But getting better at least. Fortunately most of us were on their usual characters.

    Our group comp is specifically meant to be able to stay engaged and fighting against a significantly larger force without suffering the “instant wipe.” It’s getting harder and harder to find good small scale fights so we built this setup with the idea of being a pack of wolves chasing a herd of really really stupid buffalo. We lose one or two when they charge us but we recover, and we’ve actually wiped some 16-20 size groups with 5 just by being persistent and capitalizing on their mistakes.

    But I imagine that fighting us is extremely frustrating, which is why they did what they did lol

    Yeah, ultimately we decided to take it as a compliment that they didn't want to take us on head to head in spite of outnumbering us by 2 or 3 to 1. But it was strange, regardless.

    I mean, how long did AD dominate Sotha? A year? I much prefer a nightcap/daycap cycle to a cycle where every keep/outpost/ressource you go to has about 50 players defending in primetime.

    Cowards.

    The problem is, its not farming a faction stack of 200cp players, its getting run over by a faction stack of 200-1000cp players 10-20 v 50-60, and while wining that fight is certainly possible, it requires the 50-60 to be very unorganized and the 10-20 to be very, VERY organized, which is not likely to happen at all
