I logged on about 10, I've been getting constant invasions since. The first 10 or so battles were nice 1v1's. I had about an equal share of wins and losses. I begin invading groups cleaning the level and win a ok share of the 2/3v1's. Then about 1130 things get bad.
First was a guy who I'd love to share his psn, but I cant. I invade him and we have what I though was a good duel. I end up stunlocking him and killing him. He sends me a hate message calling me a fing noob like everyone else does. He then says the next time I invade him I'm going to die. Well he was right. I invade him, as I'm walking up the stairs he casts TWoP and then spams Combustion until I die, not much I could do but hope I stunlock him again. Problem was he put on full havels between invasions. Over the next hour I invade this guy at least 7 times and he does the same thing. I begin black crystaling out because there's no way I'm going to win this fight. He then sends me some hate mail again calling me chicken. I just avoid him.
Second was a gravelord. I have no issues with gravelords. What I have issues with is another flipping mask tank using the bkga. To make matters worse I was lagging horribly every time I fought him and was unable to get a parry. I ended up invading through his sign instead of my blue eye stone and killed him with 2 other invaders but the feeling wasn't the same as I spammed emit force while the two greatsword wielding invaders went at it.
Next was a group of farmers, two guys. I invaded the first time. The host was in the circular room. He bowed and I bowed. Then his buddy came out of nowhere and bsed me, then chain bsed me to death. I invade the second time and cast force from the other side of the door to the room to bring his phantom out of hiding. I then nearly kill the phantom and the host heals him then comes down from his perch to kill me. I pull a pivot bs on this guy because I can and I'm frustrated at this point.
The next guy was a flipping mask tank. He bowed when I invaded. I bowed and the fight commenced. Turns out he's a pivot bser. He pulls two on me and I die. I invade him again a short time later and its the same story. -________-
I'm not even going to get into how many times I've gotten the "well what is it" gesture today, or times I was bsed by groups with the bkga.
I tried hosting a few matches. I got one good fight. Count that. One good fight.
I then decided I was going to blast through the level. I summon a phantom and I'm on my way. Guy seems competent at first. Until I get invaded. I let him and the invader duke it out for a second. The invader then runs through the level a bit. We chase after him and end up over by the undead dragon. My stupid freaking phantom decides its a good idea to split up here, despite the fact that we both saw exactly where he went. The invader them comes out with his weapon dark moon bladed and 2 shots me through my shield. Phantom then comes up right behind him.
I've come to the conclusion that the higher in level you go, the worse the pvp gets. I've had my best time in the demon ruins invading at sl 50. since then its been complete and utter crap.
