How should I have handled it?

Last time I played PvP yesterday, at the end before I stopped playing I was taken down twice by the same player. Each time he messaged me wanting me to take a screenshot so he knew how much damage he did to me.

By the time I got the message I had respawned anyway. I wasn't with a group so there was no prospect of waiting around to be resurrected. I felt a tad annoyed by his requests thinking, you just killed me twice. Do you think that puts me in a mood to want to drop everything to help you? Later I thought, in the end it is just a game and not personal. We are playing on different teams and I would have killed him too if able. Maybe I should have just given him the screenshot. After all I have characters in all alliances. He could have been someone I make friends with and play alongside when playing in that alliance.

I still haven't really decided how I should have handled it. Would it have been a lot of trouble to take a screenshot? Is it unreasonable to expect help from someone you have killed repeatedly? I don't know. PvP etiquette.

    There are addons that would have told him the information he wanted to know. Don't worry about it.

    Well, I don't see why you shouldn't help him, considering he asked nicely unlike 90% of the people in Cyrodiil.

    Sorcs are the real Pokemon masters. They can summon a zubat, a mankey, and for their ultimate, a super-charged snorlax.

    IN that case... troll him and tell him to 'git gud' and go parse dps on PC. :open_mouth:

    If I had looked I would have sent him a message sayin how much. No screen shot, just text, then ask him to lrt me kill him to see how much damage I do (and a sneaky free AP)

    That Snorlax comment tho! Lmfao, maybe it's time to name a Sorc Ash...

    Perhaps the sad thing was that I was only on PvP as an experiment to satisfy my curiosity.

    I was in an under level 50 campaign and went in at level 49.9 ish. I wanted to see what happened if I turned level 50 while inside an under level 50 campaign. I levelled up and my champion rank was unlocked. I didn't get booted. I had crafted some champion level gear in advance ready. I was able to equip it. I still managed to get killed quite easily so maybe my gear had no effect or was scaled anyway.

    I was playing with my primary crafter character so most of his skill points were pumped into crafting. Not a character optimised for combat so I wasn't really surprised I kept getting beaten. I still don't know how well the game balances the vast differences in abilities in the 10 - 49 level range.

    It will be interesting when I have a strong combat / PVP alt levelled up to play with.

    @carljokl you didn't get boosted because you already had CPs allocated (and prob experienced a slight decrease because of the battle leveling went away)

    But what's your CP level? If he killed a lvl 49 or a low level CP then your death recap wouldn't be an accurate portrayal of his strength.

    This happened to me just under a year ago and has only happened once (keep in mind I live and obviously die in pvp)
    I died to a sorc and got the death recap request message. My guild erupted into ''no don't send it blah blah''
    He was (and still is) an op player and had killed many of my guildies over and over again lol
    Anyway being a rebel I sent it and long story short he made a toon on our faction, I made a toon or 3 on his faction and we now reek havoc all over Cyrodiil (in my mind anyway)
    With One Tamriel on the horizon this will happen less often but there will always be one of those random kills where you wonder just exactly what you hit that particular persons build for, it's a game people are learning all the time.
    You may even find yourself wanting to send that request in the future.......

    There is Scrolling Combat Text, they know what damage they did, no need to be their secretary or photojournalist for them.

    Because, say you take the screenshot, then what do you do with it? You have to post it somewhere, then give them access to where you posted it, then tell them where it is posted, make sure they typed the URL in correctly etc etc etc. (I have not done this on the consoles, it might be easy, might not be easy to do)

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    There's combat text that shows the damage dealt. If it's too fast for him to read, he just needs to shout "Xbox record that" after a kill and then go back and look at the replay later.

    Its analogous to having someone stab you and then him asking politley how much blood you lost. Nothing about that scenario feels right.

    :D

    In all seriousness, it's up to you how you want to handle it. Send it, ignore it, it doesn't matter really, as long as you don't respond in any way that goes against the Terms of Service.

    I would probably ignore it unless I knew and liked the player, or unless the player earned my respect with a fun sort of duel or something. But that's me. I won't think less/more of anyone who answers.
