    ...all summons failed. ALL OF THEM.

    I can invade just fine so i don't know what the problem is.

    Both yellow and white signs keep failing. Any tip?

    Well, i tryied to summon at least a dozen people, but just one worked :shock: , and i got invaded once, it's really refreshing being invaded in a low SL by someone in the same gear as you

    I find when summoning, if I run to the sign as soon as it appears it works more often then if i let them linger and I choose who I want. Which makes me think that the "failed" attempts are just people that have been summoned already and I was too slow.

    But for getting summoned it is rare for me, and the few times It did work it was a bit laggy.

    If you're summoning people, stand on top of they're sign after the initial press. When it says you can summon them again do it quickly. That usually works for me. Being summoned on the other hand... Wait a while.

    i have been having summoning difficulties also. keep getting fail fail fail, my computer specs and internet/router are all top notch too.
    i have been invading in anor londo lots too and on most invasions the host is alone attempting to summon, or they just go summon solaire?? i have fought him more than anyone. happy

    Yeah I think summoning is bugged. I can host in the arena fine but summoning just does not work.

    Yeah, that's becoming a fear. Maybe things are so focused on the Arena that it's affecting the rest of the online experience. I hope not, althought the Arena is freakin' awesome.

    Well first there's the issue where people need to have their NAT and UPnP or something both open and available in their GFWL settings.

    Then there's the fact that most of the time, summon signs can be around thirty to a full minute old. And it's possible that by the time you see it, the phantom has either been summoned by someone else or they removed their sign.

    I get summoned just fine, and I don't have that much problem summoning people (though I do get a fair number of summoning failed)...port forwarding helped me a lot.

    These threads are a good read:

    I can't summon others very well either, which bums out my Dark Souls enjoyment a lot.

    Whenever I get a summoning failed, I assume it's because either the phantom didn't set up his GFWL as I mentioned a moment ago. Or the sign is outdated. I just have to keep trying but remember who didn't work and only try them again if I do a full cycle.
