Hi everyone,

I play a Magicka Necromancer. All my skills are aoe's that are so tiny and so small it requires you to stand still in order to hit you.

Even my blast bones can't seem to track you when you run around.

Can you all please stand still for me while we PvP?

Much appreciated.

Thanks,

-Your friendly Necromancer

    Thanks bro appreciate it.

    I mean these corpse skills aoe range are so small. Boneyard can easily just be moved out of after taking just one tick of damage. Heck even my wall of elements aoe is only one sidestep to the left or right to get out of.

    And seeing as it's impossible to slow or immobilize anyone for the duration of any aoe it's great to know you'll stand still for me.

    Thanks!

    But all the stamina builds out there seem to not require that.

    Stamina ranged users can just spam direct damage to their hearts content.

    Stamina melee users can leap into your face and just spam heavy attacks and win easily.

    Magicka users, specifically Necromancers, seem to require people to stand still to do any damage to them!

    So please stop moving around!

    Yeah that's how this game is - everyone zipping around like they have ants in their pants as if anyone could actually move around like that in armor. Though I can't really blame them because standing still on this game pretty much = instant death....

    This game's PvP feels more like a game of deadly ping pong than actual medieval combat. It's pretty stupid.

    Why would I just stand there? That makes no sense.

    I bet you are also the guy, who bunny jumps in real life gun fights or run up towards your targets to go in melee fights while shooting with your rifle. And if you get hit you reload your body armor with an energy capsule or drink?
    This an MMORPG and has combat wise not much similarities to any real combat situation, same as all those battle royal shooters are nothing like gun fights...

    One of the reasons i don't PvP in this game or any others...

    The combat animations just look and feel silly. Toons sprinting sideways jerking their staff...

    It's not really the lack of realism that annoys me. I just added that for effect. It's the stupidity of it. It looks laughably dumb and it doesn't play much better. As I said: the PvP on this game rarely feels like actual combat. It's more like a deadly game of ping pong where everyone is zipping around like mad people desperately trying to land their stun/bursts before dying instantly or nearly so. It's intolerably lame - especially when you include the grotesque amount of lag.

    I honestly don't know why I put myself through it. But yeah: a lack of realism is the least of this game's problems when it comes to its PvP.
