    Discuss Your Co-op Experiences (PLEASE NO SPOILERS!)

    PLEASE NO SPOILERS, as I haven't yet encountered any of the new material.

    My co-op experience yesterday was really strange on the PC. I started right away in the Burg and would get summoned in 1-3 minutes or so. Then it completely stopped. I'm used to that so I moved on and came back later. Still nothing. So I leveled up to 17 and went to the Parish. Got summoned 3 times, then nothing.

    That was it, I couldn't get summoned one more time at ANY location (up to Quelaag) for the next several hours.

    Please share your experience with PC co-op, whether similar or different.

    I've had mixed experiences. Most of the time I try to summon someone, I get 'summoning failed'. My guess is that it's due to 3 reasons:

    1. Too many people playing. I saw about 10 or more summon signs at the parish last night. This leads to your sign not being visible or people simply choosing someone else.
    2. Too many people dying. People put down their sign, then go ahead & die, so we get 'summoning failed'. I noticed this quite a bit in the garden & moonpit (this was the FIRST time I saw a white sign at the moonpit actually).
    3. Code optimization issues. Perhaps the code is not well optimized for the PC? This might be in conjunction with #1 (too many people playing & poor optimization).

    When I have summoned (or have been summoned), it's generally been ok, but there are certainly a lot of new players around (darnit, stop rushing into the parish zombie room when I am not done killing the summoner!).

    I bowed to a host outside the bonfire at the Burg, and I assume he tried to go into his menu to figure out how to bow back, but instead he backstepped off the edge.
