For your own protection, do not sit too close to the monitor. Just watch in awe as a truly masterful PvPer demonstrates the complexities of the snipe playstyle.

    Top tier gameplay!

    What's this though - mblg2e.png - Kill counter?

    EDIT: I've just realised the other numbers are your score and kill streak, nevermind.

    Those are the killing blows and deaths, as well as the medal score.

    This is still nothing compared to that DK video or DKs in general. He's still squishy and has to hide and also contributing very little to the group other than just getting the last hit for killing blows. Merely a distraction.

    The reason why hes getting so many kills is because no1 is smart enough to focus him. Tho im not suprised he lost, snipers never win Bgs. Must be a fact at this point.

    Had you faced me, i would sit on your ass all game, usually my main goal in pvp atm.

    As a Bowblade myself i run in those easy low skilled player BG's myself sometimes and i feel myself *** by easy kills on players who doesnt have any clue about PvP mechanics.

    But most BG's will be much different.

    My bowtard is in the high MMR brackets now and it is definitely a lot harder to get kills because my opponents stay together. I need to pick off liners and the high MMR matches usually don’t have loners.

    That doesn’t mean I don’t do well. It just means I have to wait much longer in between attacks.

    I mean if you’re welcome to try but we both know that wouldn’t work out for you. If you have wings and are trying to spawn camp me I’ll just throw on my dizzy bonk build, kill you, and then go right back to the snippity snips.

    Stam sorcs are my greatest weakness when I’m memeing around on the bowtard, but they’re very vulnerable to me as well. The only thang I can’t counter by swapping my build around are good players who know proper bg positioning and teamwork... and because those are the only type of opponents I actually value fighting, I’ll never make a stamblade, despite how OP they are against unorganized opponents

    Actually being able to get out of combat in a Battleground must be nice. :'(

    But yea sniper builds in the high ranked BGs are a mixed bag. They're able to really wreak some havoc adding on to fights with huge burst damage + major defile, but survivability can be a real problem.

    Im not a DK. But killing a sniper is the easiest *** you can do. I doubt you wearing heavy armor or any defensive set, so a deep fissure should deal close to 7k, my dot keeps you out of stealth, my shimmering shield blocks any "sniping" you can do. Other than that, no dizzy will kill me before i kill you. I can duel if you want.

    You understand that I’m in cloak so I can swap my build up to hard counter whatever I see you in, right?

    NB is OP not just because of cloak’s defense but because of the build diversity that disengaging from a fight can provide.

    Aren’t you DanklordOG in game?

    This.

    Especially now that when one is NOT nb, the in combat status lasts ages and hard to switch setups on the fly.

    Painful at Cyrodiil the most with not getting everything that needs in quick slots.. i wish that change was reverted.
