  1. Where are all the classes?

    I m a blade dancer and I m sitting at 1833 ELO and have fought a few along the way! Though assasins and destros seem to be very very common. Where are you getting that info about FM? FM has to be the rarest class I ve encountered on my way to almost platinum
  2. Hmm I ll try that out even though most of the time they end up outdmging my burst :( I can get out of the roots with my spin but the dmg is still pretty brutal. I m looking forward to more suggestions so keep em coming guys :)
  3. Summoner VS ForceMaster

    Why are you asking him about soul shields and weapons? Gear (yes including soul shields) does not count in the arena
  4. Hello people! As you can tell from the title my main class is the Lynn blade dancer. Now, lemme give you some background on me. I m sitting at lvl 42 right now just a bit before hitting 43 and have managed to climb to 1821 rating in the arena sitting at a 25 difference between my victories and defeats (with victories being ahead of course). Ok so with all that being said, through experience and talking with friends, I 've pretty much found a way to play vs every class but the summoner at higher ELOs. As soon as I stepped into the 1700s my games have been getting a ton more intense as people know what they are doing and I am enjoying pvp quite a lot and having a blast. Destroyers and assassins have to be my hardest matchups followed by good KFMs and rarely some good FMs. But my hardest match up so far has been the summoner. Mind you I am not complaining about the class as I have defended the balance of the game's pvp several times on these forums. I just think the way I m playing vs the summoner is not working at higher ELOs. Normally before hitting the 1700+ bracket I d try to go for the cat and burst it with an aerial and lightning draw ani cancel combo. This seems to not be working so great anymore since the cat seems to survive with a little bit of hp and going into defensive stance in which occasion the summoner just proceeds to pound my face XD. Unfortunately none of my friends play a summoner so I can't practice with them either. I ve also tried popping z and heading in with an X aerial followed by a crash to stun em both and go for a V pull into a lightning draw to deal some heavy dmg but usually this won't work either because if one of all this gets evaded he just proceeds to wreck me :P So I ask you fellow arena pvpers and blade dancers, what is a good way to play against a summoner? I ve heard summoners say lbds can counter them better than other classes but I haven't gotten around to figuring out just how yet. I imagine those 3 extra talent points will also help me so getting to max lvl should be a priority. Try to include everything you know including ability specs in your explanation! I thank you all in advance ^_^ NOTE: If your post is going to be about how I can't counter summoner because summoner is OP do not bother posting I want to deal and discuss with more serious people that have gotten to the higher brackets. If your post is also about how blade dancer is OP then don't bother replying either but rather spend that time in learning how to play.
  5. Yep blade master total trash. That's why a blade master took the world championship twice. Warlock got one championship and is probably the closest to being OP and LBM has won one.
  6. Ι know they do. I dont consider it OP but their dmg is sky high
  7. "Sin dmg is pathetic" Second best burst in the game along with blade dancer right behind the blade master.
  8. Ι can't even :'D I don't know how anyone can seriously reply to this. No wonder you guys are having trouble against summoners XD
  9. The real WHY summoner is OP

    Well he isn't the best but hes certainly up there on the top! I wouldn't call him your average player for example
  10. The real WHY summoner is OP

    Don't really bother trying to help the ones who keep whining they ll ignore you and call you names instead of taking constructive critiscism.
  11. The real WHY summoner is OP

    You ll eventually learn how to play against them dw :) Some classes definitely have it a bit easier against certain others but there are definitely no hard counters in this game so you ll eventually find a way to play well against these 2 as a summoner.

    Also heads up. All the whiny little kids that dont bother learning take an example from a world class pvper like bahjeera playing one of the "OMGFTM classes destro SO UNBALANCED PLZ NERF" and getting absolutely destroyed by a KFM. Notice how he takes it like a pro and doesn't complain ONCE throughout the fight but rather laughs it off and even mentions at 2:50 that "the reason why he gets wrecked by KFMs is because he doesn't understand the class"? And this is coming from a world class pvper. Learn a bit from his attitude wont ya?

    Allright lets give you a heads up shall we? Assuming you spec correctly both your dashes as an lbm are on a 30-35 second cooldown. I wouldn't call that chasing forever. Lightning draw is also on a same cd so there goes your burst if you somehow miss it. You can spam spin a total of 5 whoopin times before you run completely dry of chi in which case you either need to do a soaring falcon or a force grip if you ve left yourself with 2 chi both of which are ridiculusly easy to counter (you can exit force grip with z or tab and soaring falcon moves slow as *cricket* so you have plenty of time to defflect and deny us our chi). A chi starved blade dancer can do absolutely nothing and will most likely get wrecked in seconds. It's probably the classes biggest weakness and the best way to beat an lbm is to count their chi as it is very easy to lose count of it and spam your spin to oblivion sometimes. Again I will repeat that once the spin animation starts playing IT ONLY PARRIES FOR 0.5 SECONDS and I m puting it in caps since you dont seem to understand this or you re willingly ingoring it WHILE IT HAS A 1 SECOND COOLDOWN so you have another 0.5 seconds to weave in a cc during the animation before we can effectively parry again. Also you cant spin when you get stunned wtf you can only remove snares with it... you can only trinket out of a stun as an lbm stop spouting bullshit. I ve layed down all the weaknesses of the class and I m very willing to help you learn how to counter it but you dont seem to want to listen/learn and would rather just call it op.
  15. The real WHY summoner is OP

    You can't spin 24/7 learn to *cricket*ing count chi and time your cc. The spin only deflects for the first 0.5 seconds and it has a 1 sec cd while eating 2 chi every time. Wait and use your cc on the 2nd half of the *cricket* skill or be stuck in silver forever cause you can't be bothered to think or figuring how you re going to beat a class.
