    Co-Op invasions

    Post by Johnthethird on Fri Apr 12, 2013 10:19 pm

    I had an Idea, lets say theres a covenant like the forest hunters or something. I think that there should be a way of invading, with a friend like you summon your friend (part of the covenant) into your world, and you and your friend both put on the ring, and you are considered a group, and you invade together. So that this would stay fair, lets say that you can only invade groups of 2, or if they decide to increase the player limit, 3.

    Co-op invasions would work very well against ganks, but can also be misused. People could gank white phantoms in this state, even if the white phantom isn't a ganker.

    *Like
    BUT only if it found players who did indeed have phantoms with them because then it would just be grief ganking

    Its not so different from how the forest/dark londo works now.

    Griefing can be done just fine solo, fyi, and 2 phantoms doesn't automatically mean griefers.

    I have lots of fun shooting people off ledges in dark londo/new londo/tog. Am i intentionally ruining their fun? No.

    My point is, slapping lables on such a subjective thing out of hand and then judging it based on the lable helps no-one and solves nothing.

    No it's not automatically grieving lol but knowing the community. It will be a rough day when you see "Black Phantoms Xblah1X and Xblah2X have invaded"

    Edit* it would also be very different you can avoid getting invaded by 2 people in most places unless trying to grave lord or just have a high sin. but if it were more common it would be a bigger challenge . Not saying its not welcome, just that if you group invade then i think you should only invade a game with a group equal or higher in players

    I'd say thats good. Helps balance the ease of co-op. Most invaders I meet can't take me alone, let alone me, tarkus and XxrandomguyxX. 2 invaders would offset the advantage.

    The focus of dark souls pvp is not fairness, else there would be more rules in game, the only possible exception being the arena (which is debatable.) Its doing whatever it takes. If what it takes is 2 invaders against a lone host, I'm fine with that.

    The only aspect of the idea I wouldn't like is getting to chose who you invade with. The soul series is lonely, and I'd prefer it stays that way.

    but what if you summon your friend and who are in the same cov and then use an item to invade together. bam lol but it would be cool to use the item alone and get paired with a random fellow cov member and go in and have to instantly work together and get work done
