Do people get any reward for beating Blue Phantoms?

Because I am only doing the Forest Covenant just for trophy's sake (trying to get those 10 medals), and in about 30 summons so far, I have won one battle. So just curious if people are winning anything for humiliating me.

I only have a Raw +5 Claymore, Magic Weapon, and a +8 Pyromancy Glove with Combustion. I'm only wearing the Cat Ring and the low HP = Higher Defense Ring, and some Crimson Armor.

I'm going up against people I am barely scratching.

Yes, they receive a random piece of 'loot' that Alvina has decided is salvageable. I've actually gotten a titanite chunk, so no complaints from me. That was also off a kill that earned me some ridiculous amount of souls though, so I think the players level has something to do with the reward.

Forest defenders also receive the Ring of Fog, and ascending rank in the Forest Covenant is based on kills, so yeah.

When God gives you lemons ask him, "Why lemons...why not billions of dollars or a room of sexy, non-diseased ladies?"

I'm Soul Level 36... Am I fighting people also around SL36, and if so, what the heck am I doing wrong that I can barely dent people and I am getting one shot?

I am the invader... I just want my 10 medals so I can leave the Forest Covenant. I am getting by people who are Summoning me to fight them.

I am wondering if they are getting rewards for beating me, because I am giving up a lot of deaths to them lol.

nope, you will be fighting players with SL of all range.

I sat in the forest at SL 197 and never got a summon but I did get invaded by forest covenant players. People in the forest are decked out for PVP. As far as I know they get the standard for defeating a blue phantom, souls and humanity.

I love when people yell "throw it!" when a player scoops up a ground ball in baseball, like the player isn't aware of the fact they need to throw it.

They get souls if you have a large amount of them.

But otherwise no, they don't get anything.

And it's very likely you're invading people who are far far far above your level. At SL90 I was fighting people who were in their 200's (and winning off and on) but even then, it was very difficult.

Your best option is probably, when you invade, keep away from the host until other invaders show up to help you. See if your new found allies can do some damage. If they can, you can kind of 'leech' off them and throw in support where possible. You only have to participate in the kill, not actually kill them.
