    [spoilers] sl 99 pvp in PTD

    Post by fujiphoenix on Wed Aug 29, 2012 8:04 pm

    Why do I see people saying the new pvp cap is going to be 99? If this is true, I'm going to have to remake every. single. build that I have. It probably has something to do with the arena, in which case I stand by my belief that it will be the worst thing to happen to dark souls pvp yet.

    I dont think it's the arena.



    Spoiler:
    the arena has a 50, 100 and 150 group.

    So the only option if you don't want to fight players that can do every thing with their character, sl 99 is the way to go :/ That sounds like the arena's fault to me. Because it's 50-99 I think, which means if you go up to 100, you could be fighting people as high as 150. Am I mistaken on how the arena works?

    You're correct, some people have 1-50, 51-100, but some have 1-49, 50-99. This is unfortunate news I feel, I really liked 120 and I think it does hurt PvP, especially classic PvP

    I would hope it doesnt work like that. I think that the +-10, +10% is still in place.



    God I hope, lol.

    Yeah but I can't find a soul to play with, which scares me that everyone went to the PvP arena. I also tried it, waited 15 minutes and gave up. Classic is where its at haha

    Actually, the SL brackets in the arena are 1-49, 50-99, 100-199, and 200+. It's clearly stated on the wall of fame. I have no idea where people are getting 100-149. So, the "new" PVP SLs would be either 49, 99, 199, or 200+

    Great... That's way worse. Once people get to 200, it makes all the builds way to similar. Why couldn't they have made it 99-120. Then 121 and up. They know what the whole community uses as the agreed upon level. Why screw with it?

    i think it will be good, sl 99 gives enough points to make a good themed character without being an all rounder. the arena will be fun for a while then die a horrible death, but its sl 99 legacy will dominate.

    I'll repeat what i posted somewhere else:

    The arena brackets are:

    1-50

    51-100

    100-200

    The 10%+10 formula still applies

    --------------

    I was capped at 99 until yesterday. Finding very few pvps, no invasions or people to invade, no white sings.

    On top of that Summoning/Invading keeps failing except rare occasions (GFWL fault for sure imo).

    So i decided to level to 120..and i got perma invaded.

    Note that even at 99, in the forest, i couldn't find an enemy no matter what.

    At 120, i couldn't even get out of the forest cause of the fog that appears when getting invaded.

    Might be my connection or whatever, but it takes some time for the enemy to appear..as soon as so you see the white fog it takes 2-3 minutes for the phantom to spawn...but still...it's something.

    So 120 is still busiest for classic PvP? If thats true I could kiss you!

    i'm not too worried about what happens to pvp when ptd comes out on consoles. i mean the brackets will suck maybe, but it's a good chance to hav some other builds as well as 120.

    to be fair i imagine the pc population to be much smaller than the consoles, and i think that pvp as we know it now at sl120 will still be hugely popular and applicable even after the dlc.

    I'm going to give SL99 a chance for a while after the DLC comes out, maybe try a couple new builds. But if things aren't looking too good I'm definitely heading back to 120.

    Wait... the -10%/+10% still applies? So I can keep all my current pvp toons at the level they are at? I just don't want to be a sl 120 going up against sl 200 players...

    wow why is everyone overreacting becouse of a little change?
    Reduce vit/end/str/dex by 5 points on your build and youre good to go... its not like you NEED to have your main stats maxed and your enemies will have the same reduced stats as you do.
    A little adjustion goes a long way - theres no need to make a big fuss about it.

    SL 120 had its flaws too: everyone could do a hybrid build with maxed dex or str and still enough to buff their weapon with the best miracle/sorcery while ninja flipping in havels and having a good amount of HP.

    On a sidenote it seems like the pc version has some serious network problems as everyone is having trouble invading/summoning others and it takes ages to find a match in the arena eventhough thousands of players are playing all the time

    The forest invading has no sl cap, at 99 you can get invaded by any level and at 120 you can get invaded by any level so a chande in connection like that is close to impossible. Unless you got on your sl 99 stayed at the forest for 5 sec and chose to level up... :|

    If the +/-10% holds true, I dont think 120 will go anywhere. I sure hope sl99 still has some play too. I just finished one that I really like!

    Seriously, that is the most useful thing about the DLC,I have read yet. If it is truly confirmed, it should be in all caps and shared across the land!
