    Region selection is a great idea. I can say from experience that it works fantastically well in Guild Wars 1&2. So I can play with my buddies across the pond (with a bit of lag) if I wish. Or play more competitively on the EU server with minimal lag. It's just that extra option that's really useful.

    This is great that you've worked in this contact with ENB. He's probably the most respect YT in the DkS community.

    Hat's off to you, sir.

    Well through Twitter you can easily contact him so it's not that I put so much effort into it, I've just found some things that would interest him and sent them his way.

    Plus he is also responding to people discussing ideas about Dark Souls on those videos currently so everyone is getting to have their ideas shared and thought over.

    Thanks for posting these Tolvo. I'd meant to check back in to see if he responded at all, but it just slipped my mind.


    He makes a really good point about the DeS tendency system. Kind of made me realize I was looking at it the wrong way almost all along. My first playthrough I didn't use the internet at all, I always try not to on first plays, so I kind of just blindly groped my way through it, but then for my second play I researched it and learned how to manipulate it and I do feel the result was my focus becoming more on making sure I experience every single event and got every single item, as opposed to allowing it to flow naturally and let the game surprise me. That would have been better.

    I liked a lot of his ideas, most of them at least. My wish list, like if i had complete control.

    -Improved net code/ region selection: not knowledgeable enough on this, i just want MUCH less lag

    -Co-op changes: Bosses get a much larger increase in HP, host does not heal summons, can summon friends, can keep co oping after bosses. I do understand this would subtract from the reclusive feel of the games, so idk.

    -Invasions: Can heal with estus(like Demon's except estus, everyone heals themselves), more varied/intelligent spawn points(prevent from spawn ganks).

    -Covenants: I agreed with ENB a lot, i would like maybe just 4-5 but have them be a lot more meaningful. A duelist covenant, with an arena would be great. Having the game differ greatly depending on what covenant you belong to would be great.

    -Bosses: More challenge, DLC actually was nicely done. I would like the DLC area to be equivalent to a mid level area in the next game. Also agree with ENB on having incredibly overpowered optional bosses, kind of like many rpgs like Final Fantasy.

    -Upgrades:A mix of Demon's & Dark, except trim the fat.

    -Magic: I'm biased, i would prefer magic/miracles be very minor/support offensive tactics. What i want wont happen, lets just leave it at that. Would love to see weapon buffs go.


    -Armor/Weapons: More, some more, then some more. I agree with ENB again, have the armor be more about the class of armor. Each set in the same class would be more cosmetic differences. Would like if it was like Demon's where you didn't need to upgrade armor. Weapons, i think they are doing a great job. I personally don't like that crazy weapons with AOEs, i liked the weapons in Demon's more that had special effects.


    Humanity/Character Tendency: Didn't love either. I like that in Demon's you didn't need to farm humanity in order to have better defense for PVP. I don't think you should have to farm in order to improve your defense to be on par with other players.


    World/Story: I prefer Dark Souls connected world, i hope it returns. I hope there are more NPCS. I liked the minimalistic style of the storys of Demon's and Dark, but i think they need endings that mean more to your character.



    I don't know, so much to think about. It is hard to really get my true opinion of everything out, i would REALLY need to sit and think. These were just real quick.

    Wouldn't it be amazing if you just spawned where you used the Red Orb in your own game?

    I have no idea what kind of programming feats would be needed, but this would make invasions that much more terrifying for the person on the receiving end, as they would have no way of knowing where you were coming from.
