Not nice to backstab a autorunning Thane that is chatting
Well all i did was to face and use the mastah key q. Made me miss about 6 hits due to strafing, but i also had 18 blocks in a row. And yes I used ip cause he got half hits off while i was typing and stunned.Vae said:
How can you refer to normal strafing as abuse when it's a working feature of the game which has been there since as far as I can remember? Many people consider it lame, yes, but that's a individual thing, just like BB resists, Dragonfang and whatever else is the hot topic of this months complaints.Vae said:
Man, get a clue! All this talk about abusing strafe is actually about people who intentionally cause their client to lag when strafing. This makes them "jump" in the way fafnir described.Vae said:Normally I have respect for Fafnir but I'd say using strafe to get 19 out of view messages counts as abuse whether or not it is a feature of the game.
I don't know if Alby plays on 56K or not but I guess his lag could have contributed to the out of view messages.
Anyway gloating on here because you can strafe more than the enemy is kinda uke:
I despair that this game is now heading from who has the L337est group to who can abuse strafe the most now. You have only to look at a couple of the other whine threads on this board to see that.
Well I dont see this as abuse, saw someone comparing to rl in another thread. All I can say is I've trained Kendo and have done so for about 6 years now. And strafing as its called in this game, works similar in rl. Makes it harder to land a hit that gives a point, same happends to your opponent.Vae said:Normally I have respect for Fafnir but I'd say using strafe to get 19 out of view messages counts as abuse whether or not it is a feature of the game.
Actaully assassins can do it. Yes we can rarely get it in between weapon swings, but we have such high dex that we can absorb the strafe "to hit" penalty and still hit most of the time.Jeriraa said:Man, get a clue!

Using the normal strafe keys has nothing to do with abusing a bug or an unfair advantage. It even gives you the penalty of missing your swings when you do it at the wrong time. You have to know your chars swing speed very well to do it with the right timing. Thats why assassins cant do it. They simply swing too fast to strafe between the swings. However strafing has been a tactic used by skilled players in 1 vs 1 fights since the release of the game.
Vladamir said:I know Alby pretty well after playing alongside him for best part of a year and a half, he probably doesn't know how to strafe . Although i must say Faf to kill an unbuffed rr2 infil being a rr5+ tank using IP must be a strong achievement. All hail Fafnir uke:
Hmmm not a popular guy with The Midguard Stable Owners Union i would imaginRoo Stercogburn said:Its the constant diet of horsemeat that makes Fafnir so tough. Its kinda like Popeye with his Spinach. If you ever see Faf glug a potion in RvR its not a potion, its just a handy snack size bit of horse gyuk gyuk gyuk
Its not like it happens everyday a thane kills someone.Aoln said:It's a sad world when a Thane has to make a thread every time they kill someone
When i started this game savages where not even a glimpse in mythics eyes. And i doubt i would have rolled a savage then. Cause i love my thane even if he is gimped compared to most other classes.Vladamir said:If he wanted more damage as a tank he should've rolled a damage dealing class like a savage or warrior .
since when are thane's "tanks" ?Vladamir said:Although i must say Faf to kill an unbuffed rr2 infil being a rr5+ tank using IP must be a strong achievement. All hail Fafnir uke:
