Dueling on EOTM
Yeah I wish people would be smarter about this.
I had people start swearing at me for breaking up a duel – what I saw was an enemy attacking an ally and I’d just come running along so there was no map chat to specify it was a duel. The enemy started attacking me and wouldnt leave me alone so at that point I just had to kill them.
If I see two people doing 1v1, I will just watch. I get involved in 2 scenarios:
1. The ally is an uplevel
2. If an ally loses and the opponent tries for a stomp.
When I stumbled on them it was 2 allies and 1 enemy. Obviously one of the allies was sitting on the sidelines – but how was I to know that just from looking?
Would be nice if they could set aside several small areas for dueling in the area that are advertised as that.
There’s entire GvG happening in EotM right now, and they don’t like others interfering.. It’s making it a bit difficult to just play the mode because my eyes are so bad I’ve got to mash my face almost against the monitor to read guild tags, and by the time I do that, I’m dead.
Isn’t that the point of PvP arenas? Don’t care about the gear differences, that’s the spot for duels else have ANet create an area for it. The issue with dueling on an open map is all the assumptions, which means in the long run you will make a bad call. Red is dead.
Isn’t that why they don’t show us enemy names since it’s suppose to be about one side versus another? Just saying. But sorry OP, will not derail further.
De Mortuis Nil Nisi Bonum.
If you see a 1v1 never interfere, tag the enemy if he gets downed, or revive your ally if he gets downed, but until someone is downed, watch or move on!
Chances are, even if they weren’t looking for a duel to begin with, they’d prefer to finish their fight.
The only exceptions to this are:
- If the enemy is a PU mesmer
- If the enemy is using perplexity runes
Go right ahead and interfere then, your ally will be thankful.
PvP modes are the “endgame” in all MMOs.
Stop failing at PvE, and fix WvW/SPvP. Thank you.
