Dark souls II shouldn't have backstabs.

I mean, every match i do with randoms ends with a bs, and then there are these ''bs fishers'' who OHKO you every time, and then think they have some sort of skill. I mean, the parry system is fine, but the backstab system needs to be nerfed or just completely let out. Same goes for the hornet ring.

1 Split second of lag resulting in your death doesn't has anything to do with skill.

Simple solution. Remove the backs.

Or there should be a system that you can only bs if the host isn't locked on to you.

They need to make 'em better.

Increase the damage.

Add frontstabs.

Then we take out the fronts too. Your character will be made completely out of sides.

BS is immensely important to this game's combat. The system needs a rethink to be sure, but removal would do more harm than good.

I'm pretty sure those already exist if you're lag is high enough :3

Backstabs are an important part of balancing the combat. If there is not a method to punish players for using lengthy animation moves when it is not safe, what is to stop someone from healing or casting Firestorm? removing Backstabs removes the ability of one player to punish another player for making certain mistakes.

I'd be okay with removing it if something else were added for compensation. However, I don't see a need to change it at all I'd like to see a way to reduce or remove back stab fishing, because that's tedious and doesn't offer a lot of counterplay, But I think removing BS all together would be worse.
