    Unless I know the host is trying to be "honorable" and not gank, there is no way I'm allowing him to clear the level. The vast majority, and I mean the vast majority of hosts are not trying to set up duels. And, trust me, they have a large advantage here. They can summon 2 phantoms (and if they do, then you are on your own, no backup), they can instantly heal their phantoms. They can set up traps. In most cases, when I've invaded, the level is clear and the host and their phantoms are already set up with their jumping/ganking plan. However, as soon as I invade, I have to quickly pan the camera, check the trees or my back or the fog gate and hope I see their health bars. Then, I've got to see what they're setting up or estimate what their builds are and come up with a plan on the fly.

    Catbros may be able to do spur of the moment ganking (when the opportunity arises). But, hosts can do preplanned, organized ganking. And, from my experience, that happens in most cases.

    And, all of this is great. It is what makes the forest fun and exciting. It is both expected and wanted, IMO.

    So excited to take on some gankers today! They will feel the wrath of the forest happy

    I will say though- being ganked is actually one of the reasons I love being a forest hunter... Dueling is fun- but I think it feels too safe sometimes- Dark Souls is supposed to be about rising to the challenge- think about it- if you online played the game offline, the only "invasion" you would potentially experience as the invader is when you invade the world of Lautrec- who has 2 summons with him! The game is practically telling people to expect gank!

    And I think few situations bring out the best in my playing (and bring out the adrenaline) quite like invading into a ganking duo... Sure- I die lot- but it's the best feeling when you finally kill both of them... It's like killing a boss that's frustrating you....

    I think that due to my limited time an extended wrath of the forest must be felt, I will continue the slaughter tomorrow morning as well.

    Its like invading to kill the other invader, lol!

    How am I ganking?
    I've been helping people beat Sif and everytime I get a ganker,I just use chameleon to turn into a tree every time they get invaded.The only time I ever attack invaders is when the host is a new player and is actually going to the boss.I don't see how that makes me one.
    In fact,the worst thing I did was throw prism stones all over the forest and the host and I both used chameleon to follow the hunters around for laughs.
    As an honourable Darkwraith,I hate gankers and would never help them.I'm barely more than a noob at PVP and even I have had to kill 3 people at once when all I was looking for was a simple duel.

    Okay after two weeks of not playing this game, a good dinner and going against logic on the night before bloodwork I have this to say: Prepare to die mother*****! Been too long since I had the fun of invading!

    I think they're trolling us, the forest has been surprisingly quite for me today.

    Well some people do look for 1v1's in the forest and have a phantom as a back up for when another invader pops up.

    I wish I could've joined you guys, damn flu it really picks its moments doesn't it?

    I was looking for you man! Overall, its was a successful event. I had a friend with me who wasnt on the forums, he ended up doing more successfully than me. Funny how that works out right? He had alot fun with this event and is probably getting more into DkS because of this event, so that pretty successful right.

    Well, i am hosting...
    Mostly with 2 of us (never 3!), giving everybody a chance...
    Hunt the hunters, or get punished...
    Never on spawnpoint!

    When invaders bow i let the phantom dual...
    But when i am alone i get ganked... Always
    So its about luck imo...

    Still, wish i was the invader type, i wish i could defeat a gansquad of 3!
    I guess we will meet...
    But i am not that good at all!

    I am bad but not the worst, lets have fun!
    I do respect ya all!
