    Bump to get back on topic!


    Do you feel like unplugging your internet/system mid invasion, whether you want to be invaded or not, is ever justified?

    Well... it's up to the player...
    I've been invaded and killed in critical moments, and was quite mad about it in the past...
    I remember one time in anor lando, I had many souls (around 300k), just meters away from the next bonfire and couldn't use it because of the invasion.. Got killed by a lame chain lagstab... and killed again while reaching for my souls.. lost 300k because of that mofo... And was stupid enough not puting on a sacrifice ring before getting killed...
    but hey.. that's the game...

    I only unplugged once while invaded by a runner who refused to fight... I hate that... in Anor Londo again.. the guy ran right to the huge elevator platform and made it go up... I didn't want to follow him... generally, I wait for them to come back to me.. only he never did... 20 minutes later, I unplugged..

    You really believe that?

    I feel like being disconnected mid match should count as a death. 95% of the time the person is intentionally leaving because they don't want to be killed. The other 5% maybe it's a legit power-outage or something, but it's kind of ridiculous IMO.

    I used to play the UFC game, which is a 1v1 game, and there was an influx of people who would quit when you won, before the win/loss actually went towards your record (record being the leaderboard essentially), basically screwing you out of the past 5-20 minutes you just worked hard at to win. I can't imagine anyone defending that type of behavior, and to me, unplugging in Dark Souls is no different.

    Yeah, I hate when I get disconnected from a host. I feel that if they don't want to be invaded they should just play offline. If they want to summon people for a boss, play offline until you get there, quit, and come back online to see if there are summon signs. Unplugging because you got invaded or you're losing is just being a puss.

    If I invade I always bow, and so far I've always received a bow in return.

    Disconnecting is lame, when I get invaded I usually know know I'm going to lose so I just try to get near the bonfire so I don't have to run far. It's just a game I don't see why getting invaded is such a big deal that you have to hard quit.

    I think anything (aside from glitching) is fair in PvP, use any of the tools the game gives you to win and i expect the same from my opponent...

    My only gripe about PvP is startign a new toon and getting invaded in undead burgh by someone with fire uchi.

    Sorry didnt mean to get off topic

    I never see any of these really awful tactics (black crystal, etc.). To me, PVP honor is about not double or triple teaming, not intentionally invading people at a vastly lower SL, and not intentionally invading people without gear. In other words, its about not darkmooning tongue . Other than that, basically everything is fair game.

    had the black crystal thing happen to me... he fire tempested my phantoms and me on our way to the gargs, we dodged and had him within an inch of his life then suddenly attacks don't connect and then he disappears, not even the kneeling animation to show what he'd done...

    So are you saying you consider disconnected to be fair use of a tool in the game?

    Also, I've never seen the black crystal thing happen, I'd imagine they'd have to get some distance on you though huh?
