I appreciate your attempt at theory crafting, but once again, you're assuming the templar is way below your skill level. Many have a basic understanding. The means you suggest would not work.


edit: to give an example, Iron Skin will remove blind. If you don't silence bury, they can easily use Iron Skin. If Silence is part of your bury, they can pot it and then use Iron Skin. If Silence is after blind, and not buried, they can pot off the blind and go to town.

Sorry, but many do not have a basic understanding. I hate to say it but you're overestimating Templars on NA Retail, and like I said, any temp who iron skins on a sin, I don't feel bad for losing or having a hard time. If the temp needs to iron skin to begin with you probably already out skill him

I used to buy that none-sense (not intending to sound crude to you, I realize it's your opinion) but as someone who mained and built a Templar for a few years and learned not to depend on iron skin and stance paired with UD vs a sin, I stand by my original point.

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't blame the Templar for using iron skin, but my opinion of his abilities would be influenced by it and thus my consideration of the outcome would not be the same as if he had fought me like an advanced to skilled Templar would. I'm not saying this from a Sins perspective, I'm saying it from a Templars. Like I said, I'm not a good sin in the least and I'm only learning, but I am pretty familiar with Templar. I don't consider myself the best or very good and I always ran the risk of making mistakes that could quickly find myself with an L, but it was by far more challenging and rewarding and skill-building to not crutch on the insane tool kit Templars have. That opportunity of loss is sort of what I think sets good temps and average temps apart, VS Sin. I don't expect that or this WoT to make a difference in your opinion, I just hope it turns the page from the archaic and basic mindset that if you have skills use them. To reiterate, I wouldn't rage about it but I'd form a pretty solid opinion about that players abilities and, again, any temp who needs to or consistently pops IS vs a Sin is without a doubt on a sub part to below average level of player. This isn't to say Sin is weak either, I think we're pretty powerful even Vs plate. When you put us on an even tier like respectable players would (not to assume that people SHOULD play this way, it's their game) it's truly 70/30 or even 60/40,not the 80/20 or 90/10 people make it out to be. Even 70/30 is a pretty big chance to complete the kill at a high tier level.

But my advice was, again, for average and below average sins looking to get a step up and advice here really should be given relatively, I think anyway, as again, the people seeking advice aren't good to pro or even average to advanced and they need basic tips to put their foot into, I think... Let's be honest, they aren't going to stand up to Meyoh or... Whatever other good Templars are left on NA/Retail.

Anyway, I think I digressed and ranted enough. Hopefully you get my points as I'm not too good at explaining them and hopefully I took what you said correctly, or else I will look like a greater fool to you than I may already.

If you think NA templars won't know what to do when Silence or Blind buried then your arena rating must be terrible.

Korea has their arena ladders available to view where as NA doesn't, but if you have never seen Meyoh or B2O in discipline then I would question your own gameplay.

I think they do, I think many of them don't know how to preserve themselves for that situation.

So tell me, as a Templar what would you do

Waterform and Barricade their Oath of Accuracy and then dance on their corpse.
