    So this have been happening a lot today.
    Someone summon me and get invaded, the host sees the invader so does the other white phantoms, but not me.
    Is this a lag or something? Is really annoying me

    It's a fairly rare glitch. Happens about 1/200 in my experience.

    I've had that in the forest the other day. I had a friend summoned and when we were invaded, he couldn't see the guy. We're invaded while I was fighting the first guy and he could see that one. It seems to only happen with about every other blue phantom. He had no problems seeing the red ones though.

    All last night this kept happening with Yesuurd, Rant, and I in the Btown pit. Every single time Rant and I couldn't see each other, boy was it a royal pain.

    This happens to me sometimes as well, while I invade mostly. From my experience, the pivots are still active but can't be detected neither them can detect us invaders. Once I just kept on fighting the host while monsters nearby kept on dying so I was like wtf then I realized what was really happening.

    Seems to be getting more common, and we've been having it happen with darkwraith invasions too. Sometimes the phantom eventually becomes visible (often after killing someone), sometimes they never do. Worse, the invasion messages are also often delayed or absent so you seem to randomly start taking damage and then fall over.

    This was happening to me yesterday all the time, at the darkroot garden and at the bridge in anor londo.
    There was no invasion warning either, i could just see the host locking on and taking damage so i started to attack everything, tho i dont know if i can damage them

    I am wondering if it has something to due with the host lagging. Because I noticed that Yesuurd and I don't have a stable connection, there were definitely times where issues came up. When doing duels with others I never had any issues seeing other phantoms but with Yesuurd the only one I have connection issues with when he is hosting I couldn't see the other person. Maybe some of us should just mess around with summoning and see if there are any common factors?

    I don't think so. At first I was playing with a friend, he could see my white sing but it failed a lot, when we finally made it there was this problem. I disconnected and tried with other players, there was this invisible phantom thing and I got sent home for unstable network.

    What strikes me as really odd though is I'm unaware of any recent patches, yet this has only been happening to me recently.

    It kinda disappoints me. Online gaming is full of glitches, I don't remember having problems with demon's souls, makes me think that having an asian version would be better, at least most of the glitches would disappear

    Not sure it's related since I usually encounter this when I get invaded, but last night I had a really funny lagged summon of a sunbro. He joined and started moving around, but all I saw was an extremely slow animation of him appearing while doing the "praise the sun gesture" -- which moved around as he walked. There was a stretch halfway through the animation where it looked like he was flying because his arms were stuck out sideways and he was gliding around through the rooms. PM'd him and he said he was in California (I'm in DC) so that may have been the issue. My completely invisible invaders are usually Japanese players near as I can tell, so it could just be a milder version of that.
