The patch details, posted on the developer’s website, have been translated on Neogaf, but apparently list just a few examples of changes planned, with more details to come soon.
It's sad how they have these issues. I recall Demon's Souls being a much better experience in this regard Glad to see the Matchmaking getting a reconsideration, but what a way to screw those early buyers who may have already finished the game. Multiplayer in general has taken a step back from Demon's Souls. Is Ring of Fog the one that disables lock-on? If so, that should be removed completely
Agreed. I think Namco are the blame with their shoddy servers.
Ring of Fog is indeed the "lol-u-can't-lock-on- to-me" ring. They just need to get rid of it. Lock, stock, and barrel. I love owning the unsuspecting noobs that think just because I can't lock on they've won. My lightning zweihander +5 thinks otherwise.
wtf they have a ring that does that? thats ridiculous haha. the multiplayer is fine, but they do need to fix it. barley ever see players for me to summon. and the LAG sux actually, you think you can backstab someone but its a lie, you just get pummeled for even trying
I don't even see soul signs anymore! Also, they really need to fix the fact that you have to stand near your sign to be summoned! I should be able to continue at least pharming until I'm summoned! Just ask, "someone is summoning, do you still wish to be summoned!"
Crossbreed Priscilla's gaping dragon left a ceaseless discharge on the 4 kings bed of chaos due to pleasure from a pinwheel and iron golem's centipede demon
Frame drops like a mofo.
Glad I picked this up on release day, got to experience the crappy multiplayer before it was patched.
"Unlimited uses of magic and items", that might be a mis-tranlsation, but I like that fact that magic is limited, makes you use new and different stratergies. Might make some parts easy. Hope 'From Software' aren't caving into pressure from gamers to make the game easier.
There's currently a glitch that allows for a magic glitch, PVP'ers are mostly using it to grief. This isn't to make the game easier, it's to remove broken parts.
I've only put about 10 hours in to Dark Souls so far and I've only been summoned 3 times, the world just feels so empty compared to Demon's Souls! I've never seen a sign for me to summon anyone and even just seeing someone's ghost is a rarity. Shame, the co-op aspect was what I was looking forward to the most as it worked really well in Demon's Souls, couldn't go 5 mins without being summoned in that! Get it sorted FROM SOFTWARE!
"the world just feels so empty compared to Demon's Souls" wait till you get to Zens Fortress or Anor Lando I started thinkin Demon's Souls was the better game but Dark Souls DOES get better, ive been really likin it
The decision not to have dedicated servers killed it for me.
