    Also, you will never fight someone "5x your SL" in the forest. I know that this is an exaggeration, but forest invasions are the same as summons signs so if someone is too powerful or gives you an unusual amount of souls, then they are hacking.
    That's not entirely true.  Sure, the average is closer to your soul level.  But, you can invade up, and by a significant amount and often.  And, no they were not hacking. Here's my proof: http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t22160-forest-invasion-sl-ranges

    And, please do not jump to the generalization that someone is hacking without absolute proof (such as a never ending lifebar or fast rolling with armor too heavy even with maxed endurance.

    Here's my last opinion on the forest.  As a catbro, you are charged with defending the forest against the trespassers.  All of your forest buddies (the NPCs, sorcerer, mace, knight, etc) attack on site.  It is reasonable to assume that you were meant to do the same.  That was the game's intent; how it was intended to be played.  You are in a war against the trespassers.  IMO, it is dishonorable to not treat it as such.  (That doesn't mean you have to be a dink after your victories by taunting though.)

    http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t14670-all-of-the-exact-level-ranges-matchmaking-formulas-for-the-multiplayer-items

    A very useful thread about all the souls levels. In either case, as a host, you still will never fight someone that much higher than you.

    Edit: and when I say hacking I mean things like when you are at level 50 and fight a flipping havel with DMB and CSS. By unusual amount I mean over 200,000 souls for levels well below what they should be.

    And, as it says, you can be matched with people much higher than you. In that thread I linked, it has data from 600 invasions (the ones I won). As a catbro, I regularly invade people much higher than I.

    cheers I can't read! cheers'


    lol! Sorry I was mixing up this and the belief that Forest Hunters can invade all the way to lvl 1.

    Still though, you won't be invaded by someone that much higher than you.

    Can't argue that. I've logged on a grand total of about 1 hour as a forest host. Hated it. Went back to catbro-ing.

    FYI but I think on Ps3 and definitely on xbox you can see recent players as soon as you establish a connection to the person you're invading.  You can then know if you're invading just one other person, or 2-3 others.  You still have to observe to see which end of the 2v1 you're on or if it's a 2v2 or 1v3, but knowing there is host + someone, and only seeing the host for example is a dubious situation.  It's possible the 3rd is an AFK hunter or something, but most of the time it won't be.  Keep your eye out.

    On the PS3, I can't see that. I can only see the host I'm invading.

    Everything in moderation. I don't have a problem with a host summoning a phantom in the forest. If they don't it can end up being a 3v1. I do have a problem with them TWoP/WoG/Dark beading on spawn though, or summoning 2 phantoms so it's always a 3v1 against the invader.

    In the same vein, it's fine for forest hunters to 2v1 the host. That's what they're there for, to protect the forest. I treat forest invasions like any other non-dueling-area invasion. If we both bow and decide to duel, that's fine. But don't expect it.

    Just some people venting. The Forest can do that to you. It can be stressful at times. Some good discussion of what constitutes as honor in the forest. As long as it stays mature like this, I'm for leaving it open.

    I often summon one person at the beggining of the forest because of this very reason. I do not gank, but I do have a right hand man since I often find myself faced in a 1v2 dark bead and pursuers spamfest. The other thing I will do in the forest when I just want to collect items and kill sif is equip WoTG and and other powerful spells and spam right back. I figure, if they are shameless enough to do it to me, I should be shameless enough to do it right back.
