    how Active is PVP now?

    Post by Razielthemanslayer on Tue Apr 30, 2013 8:45 pm

    With the graphic flickering glitch in dark souls, I'm planning to play
    Demon Souls for a while, but I gave switched games with a friend and he
    doesn't really play it, is the servers really active these days or is it
    as empty as it was before?

    think of a graveyard, then subtract the body's, THEN you have how alive PVP is

    The last time I went to 4-1 SL 120 it was plenty active, just like 95% scrubs. Which if you don't have a lot of PvP experience might be fine to you.

    Elsewhere, I get plenty. The game is actually pretty active last couple times I've played outside of SL 120. I invaded almost non-stop in 1-2, 2-1, and 3-2, and got a handful of people invading me whenever I went through the PvE.

    I don't know about random invasions, but there's an active eu fc that i've been enjoying for the last two weeks. Some of them are vets, but a few are new to DeS pvp like me. It's been really fun. Some things are so much better in Demon's souls.

    I consider 5-2 a Forest. There's quite a bit of wood there.

    I always considered it a swamp... but, that's just me... Shrug

    edit: also, I thought that glitch was just me! Good thing I didn't throw my PS3 in the trash. silly I should pay more attention to the general section.

    I see, last time I played (long time ago) SL 120 was empty outside of fight clubs.

    So what´s the best SL for almost constant PVP Action now?

    I got TONS of invasions at like SL 15 in 1-1 and 1-2. Elsewhere at higher levels it was a little bit slower, but if you're not into low-level PvP probably 25 to 40.

    Keep in mind I haven't done any PvP outside SL 120 4-1 in a couple months. It might've died down a bit, but reports I've heard from other people more recently have remained positive. The Christmas PSN release along with being free on PSN+ I think has reinvigorated the game. TBH I have to give Atlus an A+ on it.

    Thanks everyone for the help, I'm gonna try lower SL, A build would be somewhat complete at SL 40 in Demon Souls.

    I've put up demon's souls pvp videos recently. I got enough invasions to make some montages at least, but most of them were in the boletarian palace stages for whatever reason. Some at SL60, some at 105 or so. This is the north american version.

    Actually had a very good PVP session in 4-1 this past Sunday. Quite a few names from the old days. (NA server)

    Tell me more pls - where, when, SL Range, rules

    Asian Version is as busy as Dark Souls imo, and lag to japan is nearly the same for me as the lag to NA living in EU.
    But i also own the EU Version and think of buying the Atlus Version...if i would know for sure, that they don't shut down the server with the DkS2 Release....

    In the US they gave away the Atlus version of the game for free to ps+ subscribers in April.

    Fortunately owing that Version i was really surprised how active it is atm when i played the last time. I think it was last weekend or so....
    Almost constant invasions in 3-1, 3-2, 1-2, 4-1 @ sl 25... I only played random invasions and some coop sessions, so i don't know anything about FC. I even got summoned several times for old monk boss fight.

    Didn't try any other level or sl, but i was very pleased with the results.

    I sure hope it has the same servers as the retail version which I have XD
