    Did the servers just go down?

    Post by LarsHimself on Sat Jun 16, 2012 12:51 am

    I'm trying to write messages on the ground. I haven't seen a single message on the ground. Has it finally happened? Is DeS finally offline?

    Say it ain't so... I just bought the game hoping for an experience similar to DkS.

    Maybe this'll cheer you up. Sun

    To answer your question, no. To the best of my knowledge the DeS serves should still be churning. But I can't confirm it as I can only play DeS at my friend's house. (No PS3 of my own...)

    They say that they would be extended indefinately. I think that they would've sent out a message bout them going down if they did

    I've run into this problem when I try to play as well. This is all speculation, but I think it's because of the server rotations that were programmed in. Back when everyone was playing Demon's Souls and the servers were populated this was no big deal, and helped prevent you from being grouped up with the same people over and over. But since it seems you're only connected to people just as you start playing, then I've come to theorize that you start in the most populated server, and actually get rotated into an unpopulated server. When you aren't connected to anybody else, then the game won't allow you to leave messages and acts like you're basically offline.

    Long story short; whether this is the actual issue or not, it seems you are only connected to people for the first few minutes of playing. After that for some reason it becomes a ghost town. Just restart the game and you'll have a few more minutes of connectivity.

    I get this issue all the time. Quit game and go back in.

    Unfortunately it has never "fixed" itself for me before, so I think it may be connection issues with the server. Again, Quit and reload (the game, not the save file).
