    A special thanks to the Community that gave me so much.

    Post by Chaos Spectre on Wed Aug 22, 2012 2:11 pm

    Hello. Many of you on this forum know me as the leader of the User Covenant, The Followers of Izalith.

    Over the past almost year, I've gotten to know you guys and become friends with many of you. My very first thread on here was about the Egg Head, and the mysteries behind it. While I still firmly believe it has secrets, with the help of the people of this community, we unlocked its multiplayer purpose.

    I don't play Dark Souls as much as I used to, but I always make sure to come back here to keep up with my covenant and see whats going on.

    In the time after I dropped off Dark Souls, I joined a well known game called League of Legends. While I enjoyed this game, I came to a realization. Any game I enjoy, I want to get involved with the community. I don't know why it took me so long to realize a big reason why I started getting depressed, but I see it now. The LoL community is terrible, utterly terrible, and when I came back to this forum yesterday, I realized something.


    You guys are practically an arm of a gaming family to me.

    From Tolvo putting in some great jokes and helping the community, to ViralEnsign writing some of the best covenant lore I've ever read, or even WyrmHero managing one of the biggest and most popular covenants on this thread. And of course, I can't forget the ones who run this joint. Fex, Emergence, Befowler, and the many other Mods and Admins I don't know, thank you.

    I've never in my whole time of gaming gotten so close with a community. I've talked to multiple game developers, gotten my ideas put into a couple games including a triple A title, and even gained a large amount of real life friends that I never knew before gaming became involved. Games are my life, I want to make them, but more than anything, I want to share them. Communities like LoL and the shooter community only want what they want. They are selfish, there is no sharing, there is no care in the world, its just selfishness. But with the Dark Souls community, there is so much more than just sharing, and I have to thank the game for that.

    You guys have made a very large impact on me. I mean, hell, I never touched skype till this recent war got started, and even then, its not a hate war, its a lore war. We are all excited for it, and its enjoyable to know that even though we are attacking each other, its all in fair sportsmanship and we enjoy the idea behind it.


    This community, these people, they are important to me, because unlike most other communities, this community it built around the idea that the true enemy is not other players, but the game itself. From its weapons of unexplained lore, intense and strategic combat, a lonely world that never truly is that lonely, and all the small things that make it great in between, I think this game did more than just be good.

    Thank you, to everyone here. My covenant, the people who run this forum, Tolvo for being one of the most helpful people on this forum, and everyone else. Thank you for giving me a place I can call my gaming home.

    I agree whole heartedly. I know I'm very new to the community still, but even in my short time here I've yet to be trolled/flamed. Those are things you generally want to prepare for when you join any type of wiki/community/etc, but I haven't had any problems here so far. I read a lot of different threads even if I don't post in them, and probably 95% of all replies are helpful in some way. Definitely the rarest of the rare as far as forums/gaming community goes!

    I always think we are all like this big familie that cares and supports each other.

    ...And that's why I think we should hold a big party over at Tolvo's house!

    Wait, there are pvp properties to the Egg head?!?



    I'm not quite yet a "part" of this community in any spectacular way, but I agree, it's a very nice place to post.

    I'm glad the rest feel the same lol. I agree on the party at Tolvos house though. I'm sure wrestling would be involved.

    That I am. I have big plans upon our victory. The only real request is that I am the one who gets teh last hit on Wyrm. Which will have to be in an RP sense because I'm on xbox

    Lol, without a doubt the best community around. Whether its here, or the Prepare to Die forums, everyone in dark souls knows the true enemy is not each other, but the game itself.

    And for that, we work together in a respectful manner to defeat this boss that many of us know will never be beaten.

    Which with those three, we have seen something even bigger blossom in this community. Adaptation

    Gankers? There was a new Karmic Justice post not too long ago. The perfect Anti-Gank weapon

    Griefers? Well, thats a bit of a hard one. These people normally are hackers, so not much we can do besides try to kill them. All the more lulzy when we do though lol.

    Glitchers? The more advanced players have learned to counter them. I have actually seen a boost in BB glitch assisters recently, including myself, to counter those who wish to use it for easy invade kills. But on the advanced tactics side, those who BB glitch and then just spam spells are no longer that deadly as the invincible frames in a roll have been discovered to counter these people.


    While all three are still a problem, most of those people aren't actually playing dark souls for the game itself. Most of the time, these people never show up in the community, and are just more or less there to play a game casually like they would CoD.

    Still, its impressive to see our community find counters to the 3 G's

    Yep. Awesome community. Heck, you guys moderate yourselves. You keep doing that, and I'll be out of a job. silly

    Seriously though, very few communities have this, and it is awesome.
