Everything pisses everyone off. If I beat someone with the Drake Sword they'd call it cheap.

They are boring. I had a SKS vs SKS fight in the forest and it ended with the host disconnecting after 15 min.

Absurd reach, relatively fast, good poke damage.

Apparently, the Japanese dueling playerbase has similar feelings about long spears.

Are you backstabbing them? Those are unavoidable and cheap!

But really, Spears allow you to basically poke all day long without getting hit yourself. Like a short range bow without the draw time. Not unbeatable but they certainly require more effort.
If you build your shop in front of an arrow trap, sometimes you are going to get shot by an arrow.

Look, if people don't want me to thrust my long, hard spear into them, maybe they shouldn't provoke it.

I have a spear based build. He's pretty good I guess because I win with him in PvP a lot, but it's just not fun, so I don't use him anymore, except for co-op occasionally. I mean just poking people down without them being able to reach me is just boring. Every fight is the same.
