Worst Types of Dark Souls PlayersWhile this game is among the best of its generation, there can be some really bad types of players. These are the Top 10 Worst Types of Dark Souls Players.
The Top Ten
They're EXTREMELY common in Dark Souls 3, and they're very annoying. The worst types are the ones who run away while summoning another phantom. - MKBeast
Please they need nerf if you solo
Can't beat em join em
More bane of the ass if your geting 3 user dark sword they give you stun lock where no way to get out
I've had one encounter with bad hackers and they were both also gankers so yea it sucked and I raged almost as hard as I did after the pontiff whooped my ass 14 times - Spiralcore
Good hackers provide some humor in their craft. These ***holes, on the other hand, will ruin the experience for you. These guys can be categorized with infinite health, stamina, poise, etc. - MKBeast
God. It's one thing to deal with gankers, but imagine this combined with ganking! You're screwed, no questions asked! I don't mind mages or archers one bit, but when all they do is run away spamming crap, it's extremely annoying. - MKBeast
I don't mind it when it's a game that both of you can heal in, but in Dark Souls 2, they can be the absolute BANE of your existence. - MKBeast
Its not fair for the invader when in a duel with the host and neither is it fun for the host when the red noob starts chugging
It's unfair because the host has double the estus of the invader so they have quite a bit of health advantage
What's wrong with healing?
I usually don't heal unless the host allows me but if I'm a host, I heal and allow my invaders to heal and even allow it in fight clubs. But seriously what's so wrong with it. It makes the fight more complex and makes you think of a good strategy. I've been doing it since Demons' Souls and even in Bloodborne (where EVERYONE hates it).
I mean the ones that don't heal their red phantoms or even attack them when hosting a fight club. While not very common, it can sometimes result in everyone turning their attention from the fight to gank you, but some red phantoms are actually good guys and help you against an abusive host. - MKBeast
I consider myself a good fight club host but there was one where he attacked me in a duel and didn't say sorry whatsoever so I got revenge and got ganked.
These guys just can't handle it when you kill them. They sometimes spam you with hate mail, racist messages, etcetera. - MKBeast
Once in a duel the red phantom I summoned kept healing and returned home before I killed him. Then he kept sending hate mails to me and even went to my YouTube to harass me. what!
This can involve anything from spoiling the next boss to trolling you. Best example of trolling can be done in Dark Souls III, where you can block the host, but if you do, you could get booted from his world anyways. - MKBeast
People that go rogue in fight clubs
The ones who just straight up attack you are a bit annoying, especially if you bowed to them, then they just charge you. This can also mean healers in fight clubs while they're still fighting, too. - MKBeast
Dark souls for me revolves around honor and these people are always a fresh kill for me when I have gundyrs halberd or the gothard twinswords - Spiralcore
People that don't bow,
I have nothing wrong with healing
I don't mind parrying, since it actually amuses me when someone can beat me like that, but I'm talking about the ones that hug your back like no tomorrow! While not too difficult to deal with, this combined with gankers makes it a nightmare. - MKBeast
Its difficult to parry so I guess you deserve to win if you learnt how to do it but on the other its barely any counterplay at all against it unless your a mage.
These are basically cancerous tumours.
This weapon is the very meaning of cheap! I hate it so much, and I figure that everyone agrees with me. The strong attack can double hit and generates an ice spear when used, which is why it's so cheap - MKBeast
They should nerf this weapon - Spiralcore
This is to all the dick who just sit back with a great bow and snipe you then hide after being summoned.
They are so fast that I just can't keep up with them that is probably just me Plus they get so far and projectile spam and is extra annoying
They are begging to be parried and get salty if they are. I learned it AT THE FIRST MOMENT that the third R1 is almost always parried. That's what you call gittind good. Learning from mistakes.
"Many people in PvP especially Dark Souls 3 have a tendency to R1 until your dead. The worst part about this is that specific weapons such as the Dark Sword will stunlock you to no end. This is one of the reasons I find Dark Souls 3 PvP to be the worst in the series. It's nothing but gankers, R1 spammers, hatemail senders, it's pretty much everything BAD with the Souls community. Demon's Souls may not have anyone playing it but at least it was fine while it lasted, Dark Souls was enjoyable in PvP, Dark Souls 2 had very fair PvP which made not hat the game overall, Bloodborne probably the best only problem being invaders hardly have any health whatsoever but then again it's balanced by the low damage you take. But Dark Souls 3 doesn't have any of those things making it for me the worst PvP AND game in the entire series."
The kind of people who are incredibly arrogant and walk to you when you're trying to brawl em' out. They act like their the damn boss or something and they are think their superior when in reality, they probably suck. People who also use 'Quiet Resolve' gesture or 'Legion Etiquette' need to get out of this game because it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, Legion Etiquette isn't as bad, but Quiet Resolve- get out.
Armor, Weapons really don't count in this game for being "Edgy" purely because everyone says everything in this game is super-weabo-anime-like so... if everything is edgy, nothing is.
It's worse when u get ganked by 3 players, and when you die they point down as if they are skilled or something.
They're the bane of everyone's existence. The sword needs to be nerfed. - MKBeast
People who trow knifes at you if you had 100 hp left to kill you very cheap and respectless
Isn't the point of invasions to pursue and kill the host? - MKBeast
These guys will never stop chasing you no matter how far you've ran, enemies? They'll run right past them just to get to you, it's so annoying
People who get OP or late game gear right before Vordt. These people are hard to deal with if you're doing low SL invasions. It makes them worse if they are also gankers because then, double the trouble.
I mean... it's boring for both the opponent and the spammer. And the duel become too long if the opponent dodges everything.
Poise machines at heart, a Havel Monster doesn't phase me too much, but when they're mixing up some of the other archetypes on this list (Projectile Spammers, Ice Rapiers), it combines for some annoying ass players.
I can agree, but there's always a weakness to these tanks, which is usually speed. - MKBeast
Nothing too bad. If they use heavy weapons, dodge (don't try to parry two-handed ultra weapons). If they R1 spam with light weapons, parry on the third hit. - MKBeast
