    The whole "cheap" or "OP" discussion is a bit over-done & pointless, sorry for starting this one off. Mostly I guess it's just about what tactics I find boring, or would make me feel like a skill-less dick if I won using them. For what it's worth, my opinion is as follows:

    (note all relate to 1v1. All bets are off for 3v1 where you're the "1")
    CHEAP/TROLL/SHITTY PLAYER:
    WotG/Combustion spam
    TWoP, especially at spawn
    Spawn jumping or attacking whilst opponent is bowing or doing initial buff
    Pursuers & Dark Bead combo
    Persistent laggy BS fishing
    Running off into the level away from a 1v1 (although it can be hilarious)
    Healing during a 1v1

    IRRITATING/BIT CHEAP/FUN REDUCING i.e. don't do them myself unless the person's annoying me:
    Gold Tracer spam (can be parried, but the risk of missing with that bleed build-up, yuk. Bad weapon)
    Dark Bead spam
    Roll BS spam (involves a bit of skill though)
    WotG
    Darkmoon/sunlight blade and, to a lesser extent, CMW. Makes games over too quickly, not as much fun

    THINGS THAT ANNOY ME ALTHOUGH THEY'RE HARD TO JUSTIFY
    spear pokers
    stunlockers

    I agree that lots of these are arguable e.g. why shouldn't someone use WotG or DMB given the soul investment that could easily have gone on VIT or whatever. That's what makes these discussions so very exciting. *cough*
