Lag affects everyone...some people just have it worse than others... so yes there are those who are luckier because they have superior connections.

As for 1v1, you can only fight in a close battle if your opponent wants it as well. But what I really wanted to say in my previous post is that 1v1 with 2 good players is going to be more based on their connection speeds and luck more than anything else.

1v1 in dragon arena is just as good a measure of skill as normal scrimmage 1v1 is for gvg. It's horrible, flawed in countless ways, and almost completely irrelevant to the actual game.

It happened to me quite often that someone's ego came up and wanted to 1v1 me. I flamed them back quite hard and shot them in the face. Anyone who thinks 1v1 is a measure of skill in dragon arena is retarded and already bad at the game .

Any situation other than a 1v1 in Dragon Arena amounts to field awareness and keeping track of other people's skill cooldowns. Granted, there are really only two to keep track of (Orb and Winds). These are elements present in every GvG, if at a vastly simplified level.

1v1 is almost entirely a matter of your ability to dodge projectiles at a close range. Against two good players it becomes as much of a mind game as it is in counting cooldowns. Of course, dodging projectiles has practically zero application in GvG outside of a split situation. And even that's a stretch.

A good GvG guild member is likely to be a good DA player. A good DA player with no GvG experience would be likely be terrible at GvG. Of course, nobody cares about how strong the correlation is between the two - DA is enjoyable not only because it's a simple diversion from the regular game types, but it's also the most balanced PvP format in this game.

13 hours...ok...I am not saying you should get a life, that is rude but you might want to reconsider the ones you have. I fail to find 13 hours in a row where no friends/girlfriend, family members or newly known people want to see me or do something outside (to clear that for you...outside as in outside the house...not outside town in an explorable area) let alone 13 hours that I have nothing better to do. And I am considering the last 10 years when I say that.

Still...good job on the endurance. It is pretty stupid, useless and you do look like complete nerds (especially because of the fact that you proudly start a thread to tell the world you played dodgeball for 13 hours) BUT...I have to respect your endurance. No clue how old you are, heard Lee is 14, so keep it up and show the same endurance in kindergarden, school or your future jobs.

That being said...please go outside and enjoy the weather.
