In the past you had to get into the head of your opponent and predict what they will do before they do it. you would pay attention to their fighting style and predict their patterns. it was like playing a chess game where you are trying to out think your opponent not simply react to what you see. when pvp was actually active you had to play smart and be a step ahead of the enemy. you had to know when he was going to block and you had to use BB at the same time they blocked unlike now. now a days all you do is react to what you see. you see them block and you use bb after instead of predicting the block.monkey see monkey do mechanics. clearly people do not enjoy this style of gameplay since the majority of pvp players have left the game and will never come back and the pvp community in general is non existent. if it is not broken do not fix it i say. there are a few who like this style but when we see how low the pvp population is it is clear this is not a mechanic that is working. they need to go back to what works if they can. the game was skill based not reaction based and that is what i want to see. the pvp in the past was addictive but now it is just annoying. people catch delays and think they are good.
