Some people probably noticed me today executing the hit-hit-hit-hit-hit-hit-hit-etc. strategy. Here is why. (Sorry for questions category, but it's not an idea, and not a bug.)
So, after ragequitting several times dying to the strategy I described above, I decided to have a little experiment, with the following rules: ruins map, melee weapon, only use hit, move, dash, run, charged and special attacks (i.e. no block, kick or roll), no using items except health potion. I used a sword.
The experiment has several intriguing conclusions:
0. Reflexes make the experiment hard to execute.
1. The difference between a dangerous and a harmless noob is that the dangerous one can and will click the left mouse button very rapidly in succession.
2. The difference between collecting few and many bones is whether you heal before fighting or you just attack recklessly. (This is obvious, the point is that it applies to noob level as well.)
3. You can pretty consistently collect 10-20 bones.
4. You can collect 50+ bones occasionally (and that not by being lucky to be on the spot when someone with 100+ bones dies, but collecting it by hard work).
5. With good maneuvering, the clever use of dash, and the careful choice of when to fight and when to run, you can beat low-ranking pros 30% of the time. (And then they look incredibly frustrated when they are trying to chase you down, and when you kill them again, they tend to disappear... so now at least I know I'm not the only one to ragequit when killed this way.)
6. No chance against ranged opponents.
7. Most deaths happen when you get surrounded by many opponents. NOT when a pro blocks your hit and tries to kill you. Other spam-clicking noobs with speed potions are among the biggest threats, too.
So I suppose there is something wrong with the game? The results I achieved seem to be a bit too high for someone who doesn't even know half of the controls. And beating pros should be out of question. I saw them as they knew what they had to do, and then I managed to stab them in the back twice because of a clumsy move.
I encourage everyone else to try this challenge. There are some players way better than me, I'm especially curious of their experience.
