    How FROM can master 'LAG'

    Santa monica has outdone themselves! FROM needs to come up with something like this, even with the addition of servers.. Also COD Prostration


    I can picture it now.. DksII & beyond- no lagstabs, teleporting invaders, and even better jolly co-op Sun

    I've been playing DS. ( dedicated servers) and they seem to be just as glitched as DkS's P2P system. Failed co-op summons, disconnecting at end of boss fights, etc.

    I swear I have less probs with DkS online play.
    As for lag.... Seems like if I'm on 1.5mb DSL. and you are on FIOS (7mb?). There will always be lag. No way around lag.

    I've played the multiplayer beta of the new GoW today and it does have lag. The other guy was hitting me before I even saw his attack and I hit him with delay, but unlike me, he could defend. It was actually pretty similar to DkS.

    DkS doesn't lag per se, it's more like a latency, a delay. If you co-op and none of you has lag, you can notice you hit the mobs with no delay and same to your host, the delay happens only when two players fight each other and I still believe that it's there on purpose, so that you can't fight each other like you fight mobs.

    With the GoW example, I can instantly block, parry and punish everything that happens there. However, unlike GoW, you got only one life, one chance to win and the combat is quite different, so without the delay, all PvP would just be outright turtling, with waiting for the other guy to attack, so you can parry him. Without the delay, you could parry players, just like mobs, meaning that the PvP would need to be seriously reworked, or we would just parry each other, or spell spam like crazy.

    It's the same reason why shield rebound doesn't happne in PvP.

    That's my 2 cents at least.

    If From decides to replicate the utter disgrace and trash that is adding 500+ ms ping to players in CoD I will not buy their next title, and I love Dark Souls. This game should never be compared to a game that deliberately makes the game easier for crappy players via network-based skill equalization. Please do not bring that garbage into a good game series. Enough good games have been ruined already.

    I see a lot of complaints on lag. Crappy 1.5mb Verizon dsl here and during my many forest fights and co-op , I see some lag and connection related issues ( hosts skating, instead of walking). Never a big deal, and most times I feel it's the other guy's connection as it happens on such a low percentage of plays. Lag can be reduced, make sure everybody in the house is not streaming music, video or downloading files. Remember your windows computer downloads updates behind the scenes too ( like last night windows downloaded and installed an update here)
    Test your speed at dslreports.com
    Tweak if needed.
