What's your Achilles' Heel? Share Your Weakness!

I want to clarify: I mean *real* tactics/strategies which are not generally thought to be "cheap."

Bs'ing, lag, WotG spamming, TWoP, gankers, black magic spamming, etc. is not what I'm trying to get at.

What type of player causes you more trouble than any other? What tactics do they employ? Is it the heavy player, fast player, pokey player, or defensive/offensive player? And *why* does this particular play-style give you trouble?

Lag and backstabbing. Some one already said my reason for disliking backstabbing.

Lag makes it easier to get backstabbed...

And pretty much my weakness is everything in Dark Souls...

Yeah my Achilles heel has always been f***ing spear users! I'm just not sure how to deal with them properly. I certainly have a low success rate against the spear.

Lol. Don't worry about me broadcasting fights which end quickly. I know people can get caught off guard by a hit or two, and with my Scythe that sometimes means the end of the duel. I wouldn't post that kind of fight. But don't sell yourself short. You and I have great fights (which are certainly YouTube worthy)!

Same deal. I think we just found a new "cheap" play-style! "You beat me? Wow dude, that's cheap."

Agreed. The only real tactic that I'm familiar with is to poise-up and trade damage (dealing more damage than receiving, of course). -Which is frustrating beyond belief. But this strategy can't be accomplished by all builds, and leaves the weak flippy types at a disadvantage.

The thing that always beats me is when I am locked onto them and they somehow walk through me or something and the camera doesnt change to where they are facing and they backstab me....

Spears guys. I usually run with low poise (53 max) so spears annoy me, especially since they can spam RB and it's fast. Also, the fact that they track easy.
