We all know or have witnessed it. Someone who shield bashes the legged, rhino hides, throws late shots just to the hit. How do you deal with such a fighter?
1. Tell a herald, explain it yourself, take extra measures to protect yourself. When I get some dumb**** barreling down at me when I'm legged, I'll slide to the side or put my shoulder into my shield and check him in the knees.
2. Put more stank on it, stab them in such a way that they "make the noise," tell a herald, or get friends, and then tell people around you to watch you kill that guy. The dozen people saying, "Oh, wow," "bulletproof," and "geez, dude" usually get it back in line.
3. Keep defending yourself, especially in tourneys. I had a tourney fight in April in which I killed the guy multiple times in the same fight, and the last one was such a no-doubter that I lowered my guard and went to reset. Then I got hit. So keep defending yourself, and then after you block the late shot, hit them again. They'll say, "I was already dead!" and you'll say, "Then you shouldn't have been swinging at me."
