    Something strange about the arena

    Post by TheWarriorBeard on Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:46 am

    I'm not sure if it's just coincidence or not but every time I've entered the arena in human form I am not matched against ANYONE. Though as soon as I go there hollow I am matched at most every 5-10 minutes.

    It could be a glitch or as I said it could just be coincidence but I found it strange enough to mention.

    which level are you?

    I'm facing problems to find opponents on the arenas, it takes several minutes to find someone and then i'm continously matched agains the same person over and over.
    My connection is not good at all but on the ps3 i at least could find players to fiight.

    The game seemed pretty dead to me compared to the PS3 version...
    The ps3 game has been out for a year and the pc version was just released after a big petition so I thought it would be more crowded... I think i got invaded only once while not trying to pvp and invasions via red orb take really long...
    I also had the cat covenent ring on for like 3 hours without getting summoned.
    Maybe gfwl has some connection issues or there arent enough people playing yet, but with the reduced lag compared to ps3 I hope pvp will be easier to find.

    I think it is just that there are some connection issues going on. Just like there were at the release of it on consoles.

    Usually when I check on steam it's the 10th most played game, with 5,000 - 10,000 ish online at once.

    How about NAT settings? are you playing through a router?

    The guy who released resolution fix is not working on other kind of problem.

    I don`t know about nat, i don`t have problems playing other games.

    When did anything about that guy enter the conversation? Lol.

    Depending on online methods used by other games it may not matter.
    Are you playing through a router though?

    Yeah that's what I thought lol, no worries.


    Could be NAT settings then. Do you know how to go to your router settings?

    NAT is enabled?

    Could you clarify that a little?


    Generally enabling UPnP is enough to fix NAT issues. So check if that's enabled.

    Okay those settings are all good, only other thing to do with UPnP would be to make sure that it is enabled on your computer as well as your router.

    Such as, steps for Windows 7:

    - Open Control Panel.
    - Network and Internet.
    - Network and Sharing Center.
    - Change advanced sharing settings.
    - Make sure Network discovery is on.



    If that is also enabled then I would assume your NAT is fine. There could be port problems, but I doubt it. Most likely it's just the game currently has connection problems.

    Network discovery is enabled as well, the problem must be with their servers, on ps3 if i put the forest hunters ring i'm summoned almost instatly, sometimes it lags a lot but at least we can connect.

    It might also be because everyone's not at the arena.

    I have the PC version, but i'm only at the gaping dragon yet. There could be a lot of other new players who don't have a PvP build yet.

    I agree. This is probably a part of the reason you're not seeing many pvp match ups yet. I bought the PC version the other day and have yet to even be invaded anywhere in human form. I invaded someone myself to check it was working and it was fine (They didn't seem to have a clue what was happening so I didn't kill them, just left them a present and BC'd out). I'm thinking it's down to new PC players not really knowing how pvp works in this game. They would be new to the souls series after all, unlike PS3 players who would likely have played Demon's first. I don't know how quick the xbox users picked it up.

    As for the arena, I couldn't even access it until I'd beaten Artorias in the new content. You can't get to the new content without getting to Dukes. You can't get to dukes without getting O&S down. I know my first playthrough ever took me 90 hours and O&S were a huge wall for me. So unfortunately it's probably just a case of giving the newer players more time to get there, let alone building a decent pvp spec ^^;

    You explained it a lot better than me silly
    Yeah, we shouldn't believe that everyone's a master at DkS PvE and can make a build in 4 days. Most PS3 players had up to 40 hours before they beat it IIRC. If not more.


    And welcome to the forum big grin

    Everything seem to be working now, they may have improved the servers, i think the game has sold way more than they expected.
