And in a 1v1 with me but I have to chase you all the way back to your spawn point because you need some help, you need to quit the match. It doesn't matter if you and your boys kill my character. I had to chase you knowing you were going back to your group because you couldn't handle a 1v1. Just log off. Quit the match and apologize to your team for needing to be carried.

    I mean, I understand hiding around a corner to get your resources back. But when you run all the way across the map back to your spawn point because you need help, at least acknowledge that you're being carried by your team. I think a lot of these people feel too good about themselves when they win 510-40-30 and the like. But if they can't win a 1v1 against me with my non-meta build, I would be ashamed of myself if I were them. This has happened a number of times. Im like, come on dude. Are you not ashamed?

    My favorite bg build with my magplar is Slimecraw/Julianos/War Maiden/Maelstrom resto back bar, light armor. I do a ton of dmg from range, get the most kills usually, but obviously I can't kill most people 1v1 because i take 6-9k dmg from every hit. Needless to say if you try to 1v1 me, i'll kite you to my team and you'll end up being the easiest kill we'll ever get.

    You need to be smarter, bgs are 4v4v4. If you want 1v1 you can duel. That's all i got to say.

    I'm using Julianos and Innate Axiom but I think I'll have to drop Julianos. I keep getting CC'd. I need more stamina. Maybe I'll try shacklebreaker. I hate it though because I've invested a lot in crafting this gear.

    Go Shackle, don't know your class but if you already have the damage on your tools tips change to shackle. It does provides a lot of damage with the stats it gives plus the stam for CC.

    I play magplar. My spell damage was probably over 2000 and I had a base 40% critical chance with my build but now it will probably dip back below 2000 and I will lose a lot of crit. But I'm losing many fights simply because I can't break free so Shacklebreaker here I come.

    I was playing this one BG yesterday. I think one team was premade ( or just really organized ).

    One character was named something like, "Oreo Frosty" and he would freeze me and then I was basically dead. I always tried to stay way from Oreo.

    Well I spent most my time chasing an NB around trying to kill him. Every time he ran from me, guess where he went? He ran to Oreo Frosty! and I would die.

    If you want a friend, get a dog.

    The NBs are guaranteed to run back to their team if you can decloak them. :)

    That's cool if you have to do that, just don't act like you're the sheet when you know you have to double or triple a person to kill them. Stay humble. They team up four against one and then jump around like they're happy they got the kill. No, you should all be humbled.

    If a player is in an organized team and we 1v1, and he kills me without a carry set... hey, gotta give credit where it's due. Turn around and run back to his team though? Nope. He better take the walk of shame.

    I got so bored of bg's last time I played because of people doing this. I searched for a deathmatch because I thought it would have the most action and I was so wrong. Every single time I found a fight they would just run the tnrire map back to their friends instead of fighting me. I found much more action in chaos ball, at least they are forced to defend/attack the ball so can't run for 20mins lol :)

    The spell dgm I hope is unbuffed and in the back ground you have Innate Axiom which will not show in character sheet but does effect your tool tips.

    If not already you need to have a nirhoned weapon works really well in PVP. Plus think about interesting things you can do with jewerly traits, you can get some pretty nice things from them that work really well in no CP / BG.

    With major and minor sorcery buffs up you should be able to make some pretty nice build. I group with a magplar, no idea what his build is but he is good and gives me minor sorcery and I give him major sorcery works really well.

    For me 4K+ spell dmg with shacklebreaker as 1 of the sets is not out of reach at all (this does involves procs like the spell dmg enchant on my weapon).

    I can't play chaos ball. I always just end up fighting people and completely forget about the dang ball. Same with capture the relic. They can have it. I just want to fight. XP

    I'm thinking of switching some of my jewelry from arcane to infused. I have one in protective already and I don't want to lose that. I'm just worried about losing more magicka by switching to infused. I'm already losing crit. All because ZOS refuses to address CCs. Now I have to build for stamina.

    You always need stam beside CC's. You want to be fast and agile that already requires roll dodge and sprint. I do think the cost of break free is way too much.

    Good luck, creating a good functional build for Non CP mag like BG I find is really satisfying and shackle is for sure always the main element or bright boast with the tri stat drink ;)

    Not sure but in term of BG rules, you got outplayed. He survived and you died and gave his team points :)

    I could have not chased them and lost to their teams anyway. That doesn't change the fact that they ran with their tail between their legs from a 1v1. Maybe they were being ordered to retreat. They're still scrubs that can only step up when they outnumber the opposition. Nothing anybody says to me is going to change that.

    To be clear, I'm talking about the ones who run, not those that can hold their own peanuts.

    Who says taunt/aggro doesn't work in PvP?

    You can put any vehicle you want on the racetrack that is ESO, just don't blame anybody but yourself if your VW bus gets passed by a Ferrari.

    There are always going to be 1v1 situations. If a player can't handle a 1v1 even in battlegrounds then what positive spin can I put on it? I understand declining to duel in open world. But running from a 1v1 in PVP is not a good look. At least recognize you're being carried by your team.
