The bow usual means this.Hey I would like a fair duel.No ganking or running away to survive.


Seen plenty of people who bow then resort mid-fight to ganking, running, healing, et cetera... Unless I missed the memo, there is no general knowledge or informal agreement of what bowing means exactly, except the culturally common code of expressing some form of respect.

While I think bsing someone during a bow is an ass move, I never bow unless my opponent does it first. That way I know I won't get backstabbed. I think people who bow to invaders are idiots.

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.

Is this directed at me


Using the term "tryhard" robs of you of any and all credibility. And pretty much makes you look like a tool.

To me anyone who actually uses the term tryhard actually is a tryhard. Oh no now I'm a tryhard.

If that was directed at me, I have had fair battles in the forest and when bowed to always bow back and fight fair until they start healing or summoning phantoms mid-fight. Those who fight fair in the forest, even out of those who are fighting alone, are the exception to the rule.

Or die horribly while the winner drops "Hello" repeatedly.

One thing that pisses me off are dumbsh*** that talk about showing no mercy to invaders when they are sitting there waiting for invasions.

If you are trying to PVE and just kindled a bonfire, OK. Otherwise, you're a bad person.

I'm a backstabing SOB. When the opposition shows weakness like bowing, I will go in for the kill. I have no honor and proud of it.

If you're going to be an @ss to your fellow players because the game refuses to hold you by the hand, good on you. But some people still like to play fair towards each other when it comes to PvP. Cheap shots should be reserved for the cheaters and bosses.
