People voluntarily go against preferences all the time, which I illustrated. Incidentally I expected the same thing the forum rules do, you to simply clarify that you're unwilling instead of being insulting.
I mentioned that. Only attack once each time you attack. No combos, no spam. Only if you're spriniting and if anyone is attacking while someone sprints forward, they deserve to lose (and even the the DWGR dissagrees). It's not mind games, it's a simple set of rules that if adhered to by a patient player make any and all other melee obsolete and futile. The 2 melee weapons that can handle it (if they're lucky) aren't using melee to do it.
Except it also works while the other person buffs or as a precast while you spawn, or from just around corners if you fall for it and chase them. WoG trades are also a thing and then you get bs'd while you're stunned, so not only is it not useless but even if you do stop twop and they make a mistake and allow you to close on them you risk losing half, or all, your hp and them simply casting twop while you recover and repeating the process until you die or returning to kiting range.
I haven't seen anyone do it properly in a while, it's usually unskilled players or ganks, but it's the Akuma of dks. If they're any good and follow the rules, you don't win.
And what part of me saying I don't want to change my setup gave you the idea I maybe did? Just because I didn't specifically refuse? While I may not have "specifically" refused to change my gear, I did "specifically" indicate what I "wanted" to do, and you still gave contradictory advice.
Here is the original quote: "Is there anything I can try? Outside of gearing up differently
? I'd prefer to overcome these challenges with my own skill, and not just a different item setup.
What conclusion do you draw from that? I shouldn't have to write "Oh, by the way, I'm also unwilling just in case it seemed like I was on the fence about it, now you know." for you to make the reasonable assumption that I didn't want to change my item setup. That's a pretty far-fetched assumption on your part.
If you still think it's an unreasonable assumption, then I'd say you're lacking a basic mental skill, sincerely. Call it insulting if you want, but like I said, I'm working with what you've given me. Nothing more, nothing less.
Even if it is a simple set of rules, the rock, paper, scissors aspect are called mindgames. That's basic, why are you arguing this? But let's say they aren't mindgames for a second, let's say they are just rules you have to follow, guidelines perhaps. They can still be followed by both players, and the better one wins. Period. Items don't matter except in closing the gap between a less skilled player and a more skilled player. Items grant a diminishing advantage the better both players' core skills are.
taking words in their usual or most basic sense without metaphor or allegory.
unnecessary, especially through being more than enough.
