    Next time summon 2 whites, wait till someone invades then suicide off an edge. I've always wanted to do this in the forest.

    yes this is the conclusion i have come to i generally tend to never judge someone until i have been in there shoes so i thought well maybe there is some upside to ganking but alas no, its a fools ideal

    I did a run with a group in the Kiln and posted my results what seems like ages ago. I was there helping with Gwyn in my first run through the game and got summoned by a group. I stuck around awhile and saw some upsides but, and this is the key, only if the group abides by a few rules. Primarily every fight should start honorably with a chance at 1v1. The only time I felt a group battle was acceptable was when invaders chose to engage all of us simultaneously. I did see a large number of persons looking to fight a group. I'm ok with that. I always gave an option. However, my "compatriots" broke this rule and attacked a guy while I bowed to him. I let them get slaughtered and bowed to the invader as I let him kill me.

    Why did you have to do it in the Burg?

    Dark Anor Londo, the Kiln, the Forest... Why the Burg??

    Good question. Of all the places, why the one that's still a reliable 1v1 spot?

    Good, you're one of the few people who actually tried it before condemning it. It is dull isn't it? The only reason I can think of doing it is soul farming.. But other ways are faster than this so I fail to see the point.. :|

    Just sore losers playing in the only way they can win, i guess.

    in ye olde demons souls you'd run into parties of three who would 1v1 an invader with the phantoms going first and the host acting as the ref/ match starter guy until he was alone, then the host would duel, sad it doesn't happen all that often anymore.... and i've experimented this way as well so i know what your talking about, the only times it was really profitable was in the forest when a lvl 600 or so showed up and got killed.... frankly its more fun to run naked through the forest and then just pull the invaders along all over the place...

    I played with two other friends once and we killed several invaders together while on our way to Quelaag. Are we in the wrong for not wanting to wait to fight the invaders one by one wasting our time?

    Unless you're speaking of just waiting for invaders to come, I see nothing wrong with 3v1 since im some cases people are actually trying to progress in the level and not exactly wait for an unlucky invader to try and spoil our game.

    As an occasional Darkwraith invader I wouldn't take offense to being ganged up on if it looked like you were going through the level. As a forest hunter I've seen two people.....and that's ever......going for Sif. Neither had help. I take some offense at the camping but not a lot since I know a good deal of strategies to turn the tide. 3v1? How about 10v3? Mwah ha ha haaa

    Not all gankers are ganking just for the joy of it.
    I had a conversation yesterday with a few friends of mine. They were trying to reach level 105 so we could co-op... and I was hearing some strange things over the mic.
    "What are you doing?"
    "We're in the forest"
    "....together?"
    "Ye- FLASK! The bastard bacstabbed me!"
    "...."

    EDIt: I've also personally been accused of ganking on several occasions, since by NG5, I refuse to take on sif without two heavily armored players, and getting summon signs to work takes time.

    I think everyone is talking about the 1v2, 1v3 where guys are just waiting for you, that's the definition of ganking. I've only been playing DS for about a month now, a latecomer, but I like to play as an invader in the forest covenant because it's a somewhat good skill builder and maybe 1 out of 5 times you get a decent duel.

    Of course it's difficult sometimes when you have two guys who sit at the spawn points with TWoP set to go or both guys are in full Havel's armor flipping around like they are on crack, while spamming Wrath of God.

    I like the dung pie idea I'm going to have to start doing that once I collect some more from Blighttown. Right now the best I can do to annoy people is keep acid surge loaded and ready to go when I spawn in... I've had gankers actually message me to tell me using it is cheap...

    the whole idea of this was to see what the point was and i cant see any, if you need souls just host some FC for about an hour, i messaged the guy who got ganked and apologised for it and explained what i was doing i then offered a 1 on1 duel and a titanite slab if he won, he didnt but he dropped a sign again and i game him one anyway

    Using acid surge will break their talisman so Wrath of god won't kill anything. Due to the summons, the can't go back to fix it.

    i can deal with gankers i can easily take down 3 people if needed i think you missed the point of this im not complaining about gankers, i wanted to understand the appeal of it, i could not find any

    the point of ganking is either A. To troll piss iff people and get hate mail for the lulz. Or B. To get fast easy souls to level.

    Usually A.

    yeah but why A there has to be reason for it, is it some sort of warped twisted sense of humour
