Throwing a fight to go for a character moment instead? I've done that on both sides of the screen, and the players always react like this, even the good ones. It's the idea that they are all fighting tooth and nail for their goals, and they will know if you are holding back even a little on your punches. Even good story beats need to be earned and not forced, otherwise it leaves everyone feeling unsatisfied.

was wondering on how he'd handle this scene. where she just happens to look like his dead childhood friend. certainly something that cory would not do.

as for who's right and wrong well if your doing pvp and you prurposefuly lose for "character moment" then i'd have to side with the other guy on this. besides as the Winner they can dictate how they win. for example if he does not want to deal with this i'd let him just say he knocks her out/she passes out from the wounds.

Hmm... maybe I should’ve made it clearer that she didn’t throw the fight... >_>

Maybe wait until after the 'session'?

People getting heated during a game happens, and them calming down and talking afterwards is normal for interactions.

Honestly, I think it's fine having a degree of ambiguity (which is provided by Luke bringing up 'her voice gets all weird when she's serious' which suggests there is at least reason to doubt.) By having at least a little ambiguity it means that Cory doubting her makes a lot more sense. There's still room to make it clear for the audience that she wasn't holding back.

Disagree: Players don't "always react like this". It might be the system, your players, or your group's playstyle.
My group does a lot of stuff that might not fit perfectly to the rules; setting or the characters, but if it makes for a better story, it's fine. But when this happens in my group, it starts with an "Hey, I have an idea. It might not fit that well, but wouldn't it be awesome if..."
I think that's the biggest issue here: The players have an idea on how the scene "should be going", but aren't willing to communicate with the other. Instead they're trying to brute force their ideas through.
This feels oddly similiar to what the current FiD storyline was about.

i think the issue here is more that Cory is a competitor, so for him, being sure that Phoebe was playing at her fullest is more important than how the scene go. meanwile, Phoebe want things ro make sense in-game, so, if Zoro is walking away, she want a reason why him, not his player, would do this. Especially with fact that she really was'nt trying to throw the fight.

i threw a fight once. It was a ¨PvP, and my character was in a situation where he would logically kill the other in case of victory,and i did'nt felt like doing this since i wanted to see him keep playing this character for a bit.
But instead of showing signs of anger or annoyement, he called the healer, told him to get both of us at full health, and attacked again while telling me to do it seriousely this time.

In the end, no.
The 2 party members that had been separated from us caugh up to the group while we where in the middle of the fight, since i was gaining the upper hand, what they saw from affar was me hitting him as he lyed on the ground.
I took a arrow to the thigh and another to the wrist.
