    Is the DLC Battle Arena bugged?

    Post by MosquitoPower on Sun Nov 10, 2013 8:21 am

    I know its about as fun as falling down a flight of stares, but every once in a while I swing by to see if its possible to get a 1v1 match at the BattleArena in the DLC... and it NEVER works.
    I see the red rings from other fools like myself testing it out also... but the match never starts.

    While working on another project I just left the game running with me standing on the host box.
    One hour, no mach, on a Saturday.

    Makes me wonder if the arena still works.
    Does it?

    Lev 10, 50 and 120.

    I have tried the 1-50, and the 101-200 zone mostly.

    Thought that being 125 was sort of the main game's PVP zone that the 101-200 would be the "hot spot".
    Guess not =P

    that's only correct for demons souls. thanks to scaling stats capping 10lvl earlier and the ring of favor and protection that literally just gives you 20lvl for free (10vit and 10end) a dark souls char is capable much earlier and imo only the laziest/greediest players still level to 125 for PvP.
    lvl100 is where it's at!

    You just called 75% of the playerbase greedy and lazy. But yeah 99 would probably be best for the arena.

    if greedy and lazy is the worst that the low end of 75% of the playerbase gets called they are getting away pretty easy, no?
    on a serious note: there has been a mayor shift to lvl99/100 since the release of the DLC.
    (and there are really only a few concepts that "need" a higher lvl than 100 f.e. full scaling quality weapon with a major buff/good spell support; full scaling heavy weapon with 76poise, fast roll and 1700+ hp. and the need for those are all contributed to an unwillingness to compromise... or as i put it: laziness and greed.)

    It depends on what build you are making. A dex cookie cutter build will be fine at SL 100, but if you're making an abyss greatsword build, you need SL 120. This is the case with a lot of other builds, too. I prefer SL 120 because it gives you more room for build diversity. Also one of my main gripes with dark souls PvP is lethality, I feel like attacks do too much damage. This problem is worse at SL 100 pvp as people usually have less HP.

    Thanks for the responses, I have a lev 90 somthing on a friends account and noticed that there seemed to be a lot of summons for co-op and invaders.

    It makes sense that pre 100 would be the zone for the Arena also. 

    Waaaaay back when the DLC arena was brand new and there were a ton of people there my 125 would always get pounded down in the 101-200 bracket by level 200 guys.

    Im with you CaligoIllioneus on the damage output situation. I have always been horrible at PVP... and its even harder to learn when it takes a long time to find a mach (be it ARENA or main game) and its over in one hit.

    That is why the Arena seemed like a good idea in a wired way:
    "Even if its just the player getting killed 40 times in 2 minuets, its still 2 minuets of combat experience.
