A term used for a technique used in the video game series Dark Souls, where a player continuously side steps around their opponent in an attempt to get a critical hit. It is a way to cheese an opponent quickly with high strength and/ or dexterity, albeit it's not being done to you in which it is absolutely frustrating beyond belief.. This technique accompanied with a laggy internet connection on your opponents behalf (during pvp) will never fail to work. Also, it will never fail to piss people off.
Player 1: *begins circling player 2* Player 2: *targets player one in defense* ; *both players refuse to attack* Player 2; What the fuck! He's just Backstab Fishing, this is annoying as shit! *gets backstabbed and dies* FFFFFFFuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!
