    Several times today, summoned into AL for co-op and the hosts wanted the doors closed. In fact one host closed every door I opened and when I opened the big doors before the O&S fight, he Black crystaled me out. Several others made no attempt to open doors ( shortcuts).

    What's the purpose of keeping the doors closed?
    Is it just me? I open them all.

    I always leave the main hall doors closed so invaders who spawn outside them have to run all the way round and I can just get on with the boss. Maybe they like other doors closed so invaders who can't do the jumps off the stairs can't catch them in the main hall before they challenge the boss happy

    Sooo... One of the SPAWN points is outside the large doors ( leading to O&S)? Did not know this.
    I know one spawn point is at the end of the hallway near first bonfire and another is at the bottom of the stairs leading to the O&S fight.
    Are there others besides those 3?

    I close all doors that lead to my current location. If I get invaded, I can tell where the invader is by the direction from which the sound of him opening the doors comes from. Well, there isn't that many doors, so just the sound itself is enough, no need to worry about direction. Unless the invader got lost, or something. happy

    Also, you're invincible when opening/closing doors, so you can use that as well. A host casted Pursuers and CSS on me in Burg and I just turned around and opened the doors to Wooden Shield balcony. Both spells hit me for 0 damage. He send another wave of the same spells, so I closed the doors. That had to pi...nch the guy off big time.

    I'm not sure if the giant door is closable once you open them and the only reason to have them closed that comes to mind is PvP in Dark Anor Londo. With the doors closed all invaders spawning outside must walk all the way to get to you, or :black-crystal: out and invaders who invade you inside the room can't run outside, because the doors are closed.

    Lastly. Some people may have good manners of such extent that they close doors behind them even in games.

    Yeah you invade relative to where you use the eye I believe, the 4 I know of are by the stairs near the first eleavator close to the gargoyle, outside the main hall doors, on the balcony near the bonfire after the archers and the stairs outside O&S. happy I've heard there is one in the dark moon tomb bonfire but I'm not 100% on that.

    Never close the main door who leads to O&S. Instead, go where the silver archers spawn with your dragongriefer bow. Shoot spears with it. Pwn invaders.

    One other spawn location is the roof with the three staircases (and a Silver Knight archer).
