First off, I want to make it clear that I am not trying to complain just because I lost at PVP tonight.
But I’ve been playing this game for a wihle now and never seen anything like this. I’m suspecting it’s lag but it could be something else.
I was in a PVP fight vs these guys that could hit me from very far away with their spears. I ran away a little, turned around and it looked like I was 20 feet away from the opposing player and he swings his spear and it hits me, nowhere near in range, not even close. Usually running away is guaranteed escape, but not against these guys. This is a new server I’m on, my last server I just left it because the population died and I’ve never experienced me getting so dominated in PVP.
I don’t think these guys just have extreme superior skill than me, not when it was clear their spear had about 10x the range of what it looked like it should have had. I think it’s the server or these guys doing something with connections. Even when you try to run away, you can’t on this server you get hit from very far away. On the other server, running away was guaranteed escape every time for everyone.
So what causes this? My internet is okay, it’s not super great or fiber or anything. But its hard wired to the modem and about 40 download and 7 upload and my ping is usually low. Maybe having bad internet or wifi gives you a clear advantage in this game? Or maybe this server is screwy, because I have notice that this server comes with different bugs than the other server so I assume each server has different bugs. Like for example whenever I log out in this server, I die no matter where I am, it wasn’t like that on the other server. On the other server I get a free mind wipe every time I log in and have to redo my stats, but not on the other server.
So what’s the deal with getting hit from 20 feet away when and getting that dominated in PVP unlike I ever had?
