I killed a guy who was bowing once… not by a backstab but because I waited, started charging and attacked while he began his animation. Otherwise, I don’t attack people who bow to me, and I rarely bow to an opponent.
The bow usual means this.Hey I would like a fair duel.No ganking or running away to survive.would you agree to my challenge.if the host/invader agrees than the battle starts. you don't need to do it.and i've had my moments where i was desperate and low on health so i just raped the guy while he bowed. 90% of the time I don't cheap shot. you don't have to do bow back,but in my opinion if you haven't ever bowed back or had a fair battle even in the forest than it just shows how much of a noob or tryhard you are.
Also if I just ganked a guy or cheap shot every time that it would make me feel like I have no skill.
If your fine with seeming desperate to win because you probably want win many battles that thats on you..
I stopped blowing when the arena hit. There's no use for bowing anymore. If you want a 1v1 duel, go to the arena. That's what its for. I'll bow after the arena fight as long as you didn't run away for 2 minutes or TWOP me as I fall down after a loss. Just to be a good sport.
If you invade, then you are just another MOB. I WILL NOT, however, hit you while you are mistakenly bowing. Because I am not a dbag. Not in real life, and not in a video game. I'll wait until your animation is over and proceed to try and kill you in the best possible fashion.
Besides, I always hated the elitist attitude of the honor police. It's just as bad as the trolls and the gankers in it's way. Everyone trying to tell you how you should play, what's allowed and what isn't.
