Okay I have to share something. First DS3 playthrough here. My experiences with PvP so far have been... mixed, to put it gently. Okay let's be honest : I get destroyed and humiliated most of the time. The only reason I look into multiplayer is because I want the plat trophy and From decided it was a good idea to link that to obligatory PvP, or hours of painful farming. My first PvP encounters against gods of lag control on one side (not blaming the people who learned to work with it, just... if you want to include PvP in a game, try to make it work ? And I know this'll earn me a number of inevitable "Git guds" and other niceties, but nothing will change my mind about the fact that lag compensation shouldn't be a skill you have to acquire in order to be able to play, let alone be competitive), and me stupidly blurting out things like "that should have hit him" on the other, had me resigning myself to hours of painful non-PvP farming, becquse it still wouldn't take as much time as successfully invading or defending dozens of times. And then I got invaded by two Aldrich Faithful while I was battling the twin NPC Drang after Pontiff Sulyvahn. Went "Well, here goes another humiliation..."
They let me be, watched me duke it out with the two Drang NPC a**holes and didn't interfere. When I finally won, I bowed to them in thanks for not ganking, and they dropped hundreds of embers and champion souls for me and left. Probably enough to double my SL in one go. Couldn't believe it. Actual nice people in PvP.
So to those two of the Aldrich Faithful : as far as I'm concerned, people like you are the ray of light in the otherwise depression and cancer inducing DS3 PvP experience (seriously, I'd rather take my chances with radiation at this point). Especially after reading through this comment thread, which seems to confirm my general opinion about PvP. For the next couple of minutes before the next sweaty gank invasion, you have restored my faith in this community.
So I *Toast Gesture* to you, and Praise the Sun !
