The Good Old 1v1 in WvW

Balthazzarr.1349Balthazzarr.1349 Member ✭✭✭

I'm not saying do it, or don't do it.

But I'll say this.... I'm running through my home bl... zipping toward south west between nwc and bay and I see two people fighting on the plains where the centaurs are. I haven't seen 1v1 in wvw for ages and I don't give it a second thought. As I roll through (with no words coming from the other person in the fight), I hit my goodies, down, kill, carry on... Hey my team mate was losing and it looked like a stomp was imminent...

lol... so a few seconds later I start getting whisper stains about how SoS can't handle doing anything but fighting other people with bigger numbers... (SoS?... ok)... he tells me they were 1v1'ing and I apologize for the mistake.. and I figure it's over. Then he fires off a few more flames at me instead of accepting my apology... What I say next I'm not sorry for at all... I told him..

Ok then.. remember this.. you can go to OS and do proper WvW 1v1 there... or you can do it here. If you do it here and I see you again, you're dead. As my Soulbeast pet says: If Its Red Its Dead.

Seriously if you want to 1v1 in WvW then go to an out of the way place, not between two keeps and a camp where you don't stand a chance of being anything but pounded into the ground. I will not have mercy, and I don't expect mercy from anyone that finds me either. Come get me.. kill me if you can.. I have wp mastery! Game on!

    meh, I came to simply amuse myself probably. I think people should fight wherever they want, but they better know that if they're in a hot zone they're in danger just like everyone else. It's a little 'tongue in cheek' and not a real big deal. But yes I will say that the message is in my OP... If you are in the way that I'm running through and it's not one of those "known" 1v1 zones... it's a good chance I'm going to hit you. It is the WvW after all, not buddy sit on the stands and watch 1v1 time.

    I have to wonder on another topic you mentioned Strider.... what would you consider a cheese Soulbeast build?

    Thinking just as yours is part of the reason wvw is in such a poor state as it is. But being that you think this way, wvw is great for you.

    huh? Well thanks for the chuckle. WvW is a battle ground with OS there for sparring. Seriously there’s no need to get salty... Nothing I’ve said or done here has anything to do with the negative state of WvW.

    whos salty? i was just stating things as they are. And as i also said, you can't see it cuz, well you think the way you do.

    That people should only fight 1v1 in the places you described?

    Or to come here to vent that you stumbled upon someone out of cooldowns and managed to kill them..

    Welp you found the guy you killed lol

    Lol. Would appear that way. Except I don't ever 1v1 because I know I'm not that good. :blush:

    If i see two guys doing 1vs1 not planned even if my server mate is dying I tend not to interfere.

    To be honest I find very coward outnumber a fight in wvw off objective, it is not conquest mode and the reward for 1 single kill is just almost nothing.

    Unfortunately the good old solo roaming is dead, you just find those stupid broken builds that oneshot people from stealth and at the same time have tons of escape utilies as well. And even more cancerous are those havoc groups of 3-10 people who chase you 10vs1 off objective even for a minute until they finally get you and drop a siege on you and whisper you how bad you are.

    What's the satisfaction of chasing one guy around the map 10vs1?
    I can understand inside a camp, getting a tower, but going 2vs1 3vs1 4vs1 or even more in free zones what's the fun of that? You won't learn anything of your profession if you keep going for the easy outnumbered kill. How can someone survive to 2 power cancer mirages or 2 thieves? It's impossible and pof made roaming completed dead.

    ya I hear ya... but not vent really.. more a little amused but still wanting to remind folks that it is, after all, a war zone. Yes I do agree that it would have been nicer to down then carry on and I'll actually leave it at that.. unless it's a thief... I have a penchant for going after those guys simply because of the stealth. If I can get them I will.. but then again I don't think I've ever seen any thief in a 1v1 in wvw.

    Having said all I've said I will give a little bit on my stance and, if I survive my interference (if when I do it), I will down and not finish.. unless my ally says keeeel himmmm..

    Cheers!

    Knowing Balthazzarr probably better than anyone in game I have to say he is the best person I've ever met in an mmo next to my wife. He loves wvw, is a super supportive community member who is respectful to his enemy 90% of the time which is better than I can say for most. His point is: "its not always easy to know who is 1v1ing in wvw and most of us know this and should keep salty feelings to themselves rather than spew it in a message". As far as 1v2 in wvw...it happens to all of us, and I've died to more 2v1 cheese builds than I can count and so has Balth. Point is its a battle ground. Its there for the fun of the fight. Lets just enjoy it and keep the salt down.

    I duel a lot, and I do it in inappropriate places. But I always keep in mind that I might get interrupted and most of my dueling opponents leave me be when I get attacked by a random cookie, so I slap ‘em and we get back to dueling. Just learn to watch your back and your surroundings and play along. It’s the beauty of it. So a random kitten got mad at you, and so effin what? Crush em and proceed to duel. They ain’t gonna beat you. Worst case scenario they’ll learn something from the interaction. You thought another player something about the game. Take it as an achievement not as a reason to take to the forum and express your frustration.

    P.S. SoS does suck horrendously in small scale encounters, I know, I’m linked with them.

    Why do people keep saying "goto OS if you want your 1v1s" there is no 1 and nothing there, that's like telling you other guys if you want to karma train then go eotm and stop wasteing space in BL or EBG . Even though solo roaming is "dead" (apparently) there still seems to be a lot of cries about about 1v1s happening.

  • Gemnaid.4219Gemnaid.4219 Member ✭✭✭

    Most 1v1s are boring af to watch. Both players build a kitten load of sustain and can’t kill each other. I’ll usually go interrupt it so they have to reset the fight or I just go kill whoever is red.

    Never understood the big deal. Attack any enemies you meet or leave them alone if you choose to do so.
    People can take the "good manners" nonsense to some silly extremes. In terms of duels, with their guilds squads and whenever they feel like they are getting zerged.
    The entire point is as silly as ever. WvW is supposed to immitate a battlefield. Anything else was simply decided by certain groups of players to benefit themselves.
    You get jumped by a player during your duels - sucks to be you, you get help randomly - sucks to be them. Always be ready for random encounters and to watch your own back to be able to disengage or take on multiple foes. That is the fun of roaming in WvW to me. It is not fair and was never supposed to be fair.

    Also, nothing shows you how much you won as when someone goes through the trouble to whisper you in WvW.

    But where is the fun of people going 5 or 10 vs 1 single guy, off objective?

    I can understand if im taking a camp and people come kill me to keep the camp for them, but going 5vs1 around the map in neutral zones is just coward for me.
    How much you get from a kill off objective? 25wxp and a loot bag?

    And those people even siege bm you after they killed you.

    If i see one guy alone vs another guy unless he is getting a map objective i leave them alone to fight and i dont go for the easy coward kill on him because you won't learn anything of your profession if you just kill easy targets.

    That's just my opinion and how i decided to play the game.

    Oh, I certainly agree with you there. It is not fun to me either to run around in a group picking of single players. Never really interrupt duels myself nor do I go in between GvGs to annoy people. It is a matter of your mindset and how you decide to play the game. Many will disagree with this mindset, however.
    Running in groups, backstabbing people - call it cowardly, call it playing smart - doesn't really matter. Never expect people to honor something you decided upon for yourself. I often see player claim silly things such as "you do not interrupt duels", "prime time is for GvGs and not PPT" or anything along these lines. Are these universal laws that the game mode revolves around? No, not really. Players interested in either simply claim it does as they benefit from it.
    I often take part in duels and GvGs but I would never get angry over something like that nor would I go on in length how these guys are so stupid because they do not care about "good manners". They do not play the game any different than you do - they play it the way they enjoy.

  • Balthazzarr.1349Balthazzarr.1349 Member ✭✭✭

    It's an interesting and sometimes polarizing topic isn't it? What I didn't mention in my OP was that by habit I typically do NOT interfere people when I know they are doing a 1v1 duel. But also as noted, if you are dueling in a HOT zone and not out of the way you are seriously at risk.

    The other point about say 5 people going after 1? Hey if that 1 person is a roamer who is going to take a camp and let's say we see him.. of course we're not going to let him just to get the camp... it's WAR... he must be sent back to his WP. That's life in WvW folks. Not mean, not ignorant.. not fun for the receiver... but part of the game. As has been noted above.. I get ganked all the time when I'm roaming as well. I curse at the !@#$!@#$ that killed me... but not in anger.. just because they caught me. Then I go out again.

    My bottom line is if you duel in a hot zone you are bound to get killed by a person or people running through, period. ;)

    Accepted... and please understand that there's nothing that I've posted that should invoke anger, in my opinion. It humoured me a little that someone came after me even after I apologized. So it then prompted me to start a discussion and remind my friends and frenemies out there that it's 'war'. Hopefully fun war.. but war nonetheless. :)

    Moderators don't need someone to flag a post to issue a warning hun. Like balth said lets just keep it all friendly. In wvw we all need teammates as much as we do our enemy to enjoy the game mode :).

    If you're unsure and you want to be considerate to both parties, attack the enemy a few times and see if your guy backs off. Worst case scenario they start over, best case scenario you saved your servermate whatever that's worth.

    I just disrupt 1v1s whenever I see them. I doooont care about my BM and the rage whispers just fuel me harder. I love seeing dueling circles, they're just targets for my party. Too often duelers forget that people started dueling when they're bored and there's nothing else to fight in WvW. Then 3 or 4 of them from each server start gathering and I'm like y'all stupid or something, just fight each other already instead of circle jerking.

    Huh.. Well salty people are everywhere. Just smile and wave. No wait.. Got to keep it traditional. Drop a siege on their corps and then jump on it! I mean as much as i respect 1v1's myself. It is and remains a public battleground. You ALWAYS have the risk of getting ganked. If you cant deal with that, then you shouldnt enter it in the first place. Even in OS. Recently had one myself. If you are interested. you can read it here. As a side note. It was just me sending that person to the mists. Not wait.. you're already there when you play WvW. Anyways, remember kids. If you dont like to loose. Dont play WvW/PvP

    (Oh i wise we could Name&Shame here. But that is against the policy of the forums unfortunately)

    Most 1v1s are boring af to watch. Both players build a kitten load of sustain and can’t kill each other. I’ll usually go interrupt it so they have to reset the fight or I just go kill whoever is red.

    you dont have to watch, you know? just go on and let them have their fun

    solo roaming is not what it used to be, just like someone above stated, you get chased by bigger groups of ppl even if you arent even around or on a point

    and ppl who say that wvw is to immitate a battlefield, in alot of wars ppl had respect and didnt mutilate their foes, fighting pilots where even honored by their enemies

    yes. But they didn’t have wp’s to revive on and come back again and again.. kinda different in the... game :)

    as for respect, many times I bow after taking someone down.. esp if he was outnumbered and fought hard.

    I remember when (pre Feb Patch) I was in EB. Met an enemy friend dueling. We chilled and whispered as he laughed at the failed attempts of his server linking.

    Anywho, we were dueling (I a condi mirage and him a holo) as I needed practice against them and one of his allies comes around (DH iirc). I ignore and continue dueling and he interrupts. I get some distance and see what happens. He chased me so I fought him and downed him.

    I backed off and let it serve as a warning. My friend threw siege on him (his ally lol) and let him res. He immediately came back after me and I downed him again. I was backing off but my friend told me to finish him....so I did

    He knows I always down as a warning...unless he told me to kill them, to which I complied lol...all while he threw siege on them.

    Some people didnt learn and kept coming back to give me more bags.

    Servers were relinked since but I still whisper him from time to time.

    Good times (have recordings of it too lol)

    Typically I down and back off (after a /bow out of respect...which I always do after a good fight) unless you killed me first then its do or die lol

    I agree... and I truly don't make a "sport" out of breaking into 1v1 fights if I recognize them. In this particular case it was pretty fast paced and I really didn't expect to see someone 1v1'ing there. My server mate was already down and it looked like a spike was imminent... I didn't have, or take, time to sit back and ask.. As I was running through I just hit the power and hoped that yes his cooldowns were still resetting so I could finish it and get caught up with my group which was way ahead. Typically I will bow to a single person especially if we stop him at a camp and he fights like a beast. I know a warrior "Hitman" on BG. Nasty guy.. (well real super nice guy)... but I can't beat him if I'm alone... ever!

    Three of us fought him at north camp for a while until another one or two came and we ground him down. He shot me a whisper (not a mean one), and I laughed and said Hey man.. I can't kill you! I gotta bring help. Much respect to that guy. I've seen him nuke multiple opponents at times that made it look like he was hacking... but he doesn't hack.. he's just that good. I'll still fight him if I see him.. and die... but maybe one of these days I'll figure out how to beat him... not sure if I can... these old 60 year old action/reactions just aren't what they used to be! :)

    Nice to see people admitting to cross realming here. Duelling is cheating. Duellers should be ganked on site, and are on my server.

    Dueling is cheating? really?

    Duelers are on most, if not all, servers. Some people frown on them, however to say its "cheating" is kind of nonsensical. Dueling has been a part of WvW for years. Doesnt necessarily make it right to some, however it makes it known. Getting ganked while dueling happens. Most of us are used to it lol.

    Also I have no idea what you mean by "Cross realming" here so excuse my ignorance.

    I'm not saying do it, or don't do it.

    But I'll say this.... I'm running through my home bl... zipping toward south west between nwc and bay and I see two people fighting on the plains where the centaurs are. I haven't seen 1v1 in wvw for ages and I don't give it a second thought. As I roll through (with no words coming from the other person in the fight), I hit my goodies, down, kill, carry on... Hey my team mate was losing and it looked like a stomp was imminent...

    lol... so a few seconds later I start getting whisper stains about how SoS can't handle doing anything but fighting other people with bigger numbers... (SoS?... ok)... he tells me they were 1v1'ing and I apologize for the mistake.. and I figure it's over. Then he fires off a few more flames at me instead of accepting my apology... What I say next I'm not sorry for at all... I told him..

    Ok then.. remember this.. you can go to OS and do proper WvW 1v1 there... or you can do it here. If you do it here and I see you again, you're dead. As my Soulbeast pet says: If Its Red Its Dead.

    Seriously if you want to 1v1 in WvW then go to an out of the way place, not between two keeps and a camp where you don't stand a chance of being anything but pounded into the ground. I will not have mercy, and I don't expect mercy from anyone that finds me either. Come get me.. kill me if you can.. I have wp mastery! Game on!

    Well if you had the pleasure of playing vanilla GW2 you would remember that there was a CODE for 1v1's and duels , back in the days of Obsidian Sanctum people would duel for hours on end and players roaming through WvW in between camps wouldn't chase you with 5 people across the whole map just to kill you and jump up and down on your corpse.

    The problem is this community went down the drain in terms of skill , respect and will only +1 you every time they get while cheering at how "good" they are which in return killed roaming and scouting in WvW.

    I logged back in PoF after a huge brake and seeing how bad the situation is nowdays on a T1 server made me bail on it pretty fast , I have around 2K hours clocked in WvW had some of the best times in this game back then. Not anymore and it's not due to balance issues it's this kiddie snowflake community that cannot man-up even for a 1v1 anymore :)

    I am a bit annoyed when players are 'dueling' near Stonemist Castle, leaving the SM waypoint contested or 'dueling' on a dolyak route and killing the dollies on the way.

    And then start complaining when I start shooting Stonemist's cannons at them. Go duel somewhere out-of -the-way or go to one of the 1v1 PvP servers.
