    As you may have already guessed from the title this thread is indeed asking you, "what is your strafe pattern?" So if you don't know what strafing is already, it is a simple tactic used in PvP which can make you harder to hit by your opponent. You basically move around your opponent leading to some good combos. Although it seems easy, it is tougher to learn than you would have ever thought. Strafing can also be used when having a bow/arrow fight, where you move side to side to dodge your opponent's arrows. So, Its easier to hit an arrow on a player who's strafing side to side, so you need to mix it up a bit more.
    Sorry if this thread is kinda stupid, and there is probably gonna be a lot of similar answers but nonetheless that's not the point.

    My Strafe Pattern: Left, Left, Right, Left (repeat)

    PS: Your Pattern can be longer or shorter than 4.

    My pattern: hit, jump through them, turn around, hit, repeat.

    This explains why I have 0 wins in SG.

    I have a few . . .

    Heads, shoulders, knees, toes (might repeat last 2 to shake it up)

    Run, run, run, run

    Anyway to dodge an attack with dance moves( cha cha slide works well )

    All jokes aside, I just jump through them, turn around and hit : P

    I run.





    I'm a nub at PVP, so I don't actually use a pattern. Just shoot/run and hope for the best

    I don't care what my pattern is. I just move all over the place and hope.
    Which is probably why I've been really bad at PvP nowadays.

    I have no pattern, just one rule: Never run in a line
    I'm always doing sporadic movements to evade!

    I adjust and change my strafe style depending on the other player's style.

    I do not really have a set strave-pattern. I suggest everyone having atleast more that 2. Doing unexpected things and having the "suprise" moment is one of the biggest advantages one can have in a fight. With this your enemie never knows when you are going to strave and how to counter one. I also suggest not jumping while straving. That makes it easier for your enemie to get combos on you. Hope I could have help you out. Have a nice day :)
