    Only read part of the first page, but wanted to share my relevant experience on the PC from the other day.

    I ran an sl 7 through NG and did about 10 hours of Burg co-op. Made somewhere around 45 humanities, and my host was only invaded 4 times. All 4 had uber weapons (Lightning Shotel, Fire Gargoyle's Halberd). So of course griefers are still there, but so far very few.

    The greatest thing though was that my fellow phantoms never used anything stronger than the Drake Sword vs. the engine. I love Burg co-op, but the OP helper phantoms ruin the game for me even more than the griefers, because at least griefers can be killed. (Though I did get a glitch-phantom killed by the Black Knight on purpose once.)

    You're on the pc, they haven't had as much time to establish themselves and the population *seems* lower so of course there are fewer.

    Right, that's why I said 'so far.' To be honest I think I'd miss them if they were gone. It's like Forest Hunters that hate gankers but have grown to need them for their entertainment. They'd miss the gankers if they were gone. Some would, anyway.

    Even though the BB glitch can be bad in some circumstances (like getting invaded by a BB glitcher at SL 5), I think its good points far outweigh the bad. The BB glitch is solely responsible for all of those guys who carry an infinite amount of titanite Slabs, Divine Blessings, Sunlight Medals, etc. That's why it's so much easier to get such items via trade. In a couple weeks, the glitches will be gone and everyone will be holding onto their slabs like a prude. Want to upgrade that +4 Chaos Zwei? Too bad, you'll have to do a New Game and get back to Lost Izalith!

    In terms of rolling new characters, the BB glitch is extremely helpful. However, they added new warp points, so leveling up a new character without the BB glitch will at least be easy since you'll be able to warp to key areas for farming, blacksmiths, etc. instead of having to run all over the place.

    Ive kinda changed my stance on this I believe people should be able to do what they want. But as some people know me as the Invader Trader they will come to me for items and I no longer need the glitch Ive made ten characters with the bb glitch got to the burg got the box and saved it ti my computer so I have loads of items and classes to choose from

    The BB Glitch is bad news, all around.
    I don't have much time to play the game anymore, and i still think it's bad. We play games to get what we want, and it sweetens the reward when we get there. A build just given to you (BB.Glitch) does not have the same reward, and it's my opinion it should not just be given to you. the BB.Glitch makes dark souls far easier then it needs to be, and then it contributes vastly to griefing.

    I've already expressed myself in this topic, but i believe my opinions might have changed or simply that i didn't succeed in explaining myself. I do kind of like it, because i've gotten used to it, but that doesn't mean i like it. Honestly, i believe it kind of ruins the game. Kind of being a mild expression for it. Like Rynn just said, it's only bad news. I do however understand that people may like it, as it can simplify lots of things in the game, like trying out builds quickly, for example. But even then, it's gotta go. Shrug

    The bottomless box glitch is just that, a glitch therefore it should never be used by anyone unless they're willing to say "I'm a glitcher". There's no middle ground.

    Sorry, I should've explained more than I did.

    By "There's no middle ground" I mean no excuses. You're either a glitcher or you're not. You can't say "Oh I glitch but it's ok because x". You're glitching and you're not playing the game the way it's meant to be played so it's cheating.

    Wasnt this locked ? Or am i mixing things up again ?

    Either way the glitch will be fixed so i see no point in discussing this weary topic anymore . Everyone has a different Opinion on it and we achieve nothing but unrest debating it .

    Please let this topic die

    I agree that one is either a glitcher or not, but you have to admit that some of these "glitchers" have made weapon upgrading so much more accessible by putting more slabs on the trading market. I don't personally know anyone who doesn't appreciate a free slab, let alone 90 (a really nice player once did that for me).

    "Give a man a titanite slab, and he'll be happy for a day. Teach a man to dupe his slabs and tell him to teach others, and the whole community will be happy until the patch comes!" (But seriously, almost everyone wants slabs whether or not they agree or object to the glitch.)

    That totally throws off the balance that From Software had intended when designing the upgrade system. It might make people happy, but that doesn't mean it's a good thing. Was it not better when you had to make a serious choice about which weapon to max upgrade? You could say "No, because it was too easy to make a mistake and effectively ruin a character until NG+" but that's all part of the learning curve of this game.

    For newer players, that sort of a learning curve does add another dimension to the game, so I agree with you there. But after several playthroughs, it's nice to have the freedom to try out many fully upgraded weapons. At that point, the effectiveness of the learning curve has really run its course.

    Then I would say that you're still having a negative effect on the online balance. How do you know what all the players you give this stuff to will do with it? I'm sure you now what I mean; It still upsets the balance.

    I understand what you are saying. But I have to note that I felt that it was unbalanced to begin with in that slabs are so rare.
    Furthermore, slabs are not like weapons in that when BB glitchers (including me) do the glitch, it doesn't really negatively impact PvP.
