The only true VS's that you should even care about are what bankin said.
Equalized gear & you can use anything you want.
I mean honestly...someone losing against you because they say you have better item or you used a certain skill?
Block whispers & town it and go back to eslant/emc/ardream/ronark/ do whatever you want.
It's pointless to even talk to those kind of people because someone who can't take a loss shouldn't talk.
When I used to play on my BP, I beat every single person in the clan RiseAbove (when there was only 8 people and they were all full of baba).
What did I have?
Fabric +8 strength.
Ok so first thing we did was I had fabric +8 STR and buffed myself.
Then whenever I beat one of them, "nononono you can't buff".
Wtf? I have like 1.4k hp without buff and I'll get 1 hitted wth.
"Okay put on HP set?"
Okay I'll put on +8/15 HP set. No more buff.
Now this time when they lost "Why use heals man? Pots only wow get good".
Okay, pots only.
Since I only used pots, I had to malice him or else I'd get owned.
Maliced, combo'd his ass to hell to like 10-20% hp and died.
Well obviously super low damage from gay items, +8 HP set and ii7?
I was hitting shit damage and they still had trouble beating me.
So I come back and say this is fcking shit why cant I use heals thats why I'm a BP -_-
"Okay okay use heals"
At this time I was vsing Master something forgot his full name (mirage sword +8, chitin 8, WP and quest accessories he said was his gear)
He lost and said lol bs hacking combo no way you perfectly timed it every time.
tl;dr : When people lose they cannot take it and they have to make an excuse to make themselves feel good. To do this they make you feel like you're shit and they say you're only good becauseo of this and that. Don't pay attention to em. If you beat em, you're good. You have skill, they don't.
But if you do see them make a mistake, and they say it, give them a rematch.
Don't be a jackass and say you got owned and leave....Like one time it happened to me I vs'd a lvl 69 sin named 1vs1 (lol my ign was 1v1). He hated me because he said I "stole" his name...w/e
Level 69 orc sin w/ rentals and then when he lost he said he accidently used hp pot 2 times instead of soul when his MP was 0.
So I gave him rematch and he destroyed me -_- I only won last time because he had no mp to hit me with
Anyways, a fair VS would be use ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. If they cry? Don't VS em.[/b]
