When I first started playing Dark Souls, I had a few Darkwraiths that gave me a hard time at the Parish. Later on when I realized the amount of souls I could get, I started to White Sign to co-op the gargoyles for the souls to buy the Crest of Artorias. There was plenty of twinked out red phantoms then as well, doing remarkably cheap things. I made two max level characters before the latest patch and I have one just sitting at the Parish. I'm not too good at PvP, but my level plus the gear I have lets me win most of my fight against invading Darkwraiths, who still do things like throw max pyro hand combusts, backstabs and whatever they can get away with. It was only recently that I started to wonder if I still am even protecting new players by trying to deter these twinked invaders.
So my question is; are there really still new players that pass through the Parish that're still invaded, new to the game or just new characters period, that have problems with them? Or am I possibly ruining some low leveled PvP for people that still enjoy to do so there? I'm curious and would appreciate any answer or thoughts on it. Because if I really am ruining it for people that're genuinely fighting there and aren't just a-holes wanting to destroy new players, I'd feel inclined to stop.
