Yeah, playing with Manslayer Vet against a non-vet Chainsword player is totally makes you stronger. And when you play on a video game you are actually being stronger, eh. There is no being weaker nor being stronger term in Eternal Crusade. There is being better and worse term here. There isn't even a skill on a rock paper scissors system. All you need to do just guessing your opponent's next movement. And there is thought patterns on that.(like people playing based on those patterns) Just by considering it you can deal with anyone. You can kill stronger opponents, here. You can kill a veteran as a non-veteran even if you both are melee. So losing is not about being weaker. See? There is no power in Eternal Crusade. Because you just control a character, you are not himself. And yes, without Manslayer I still keep my big excuse. Sorry, I've been playing with Manslayer and I know how op it is. I could do 1v3 and could kill some. If you want to duel with me you'd come with equal status. Otherwise it's not a duel, it's better geared scrub vs someone with worse gear. So if you come with your Manslayer Vet against my non-vet you are being a big scrub with 70% lifesteal against 30%. So you can't sell your roleplaying shit to me, kiddo.
