Idea for the next game to remove back-stab hating:

Give players a brief window to parry a back-stab. Think about it: less back-stab abuse, less rage over cheap victories, and further more, help punish unskilled players who know of no other strategies.

What do you guys think?

Yeah, introduce an entirely new humanoid species that has a 3rd hand on its back to allow for parrying. Otherwise there is no f***ing way you can parry a backstab. Even thinking about it is silly.

Well, it could be a pretty cool animation with the player turning backwards swiftly while doing the parry animation.

And something unrelated...
Yo, Aneed are you a bangladeshi and are you studying in QED?

Wrong. The TC is talking about tails. Bosses have awesome tails. I want a tail too.

Would not consider that parrying, closer to mauling tbh.

I like the idea. Guess what? You would think it was impossible to teleport and backstab someone, then be able to abuse the backstab again the moment they try to get up, but it is on Dark Souls. Parrying a backstab can be then too, if they ever decide to make it happen.
