Does your Rep affect online play?

i started with 3 stars, and now it is 2 stars. all i did was teaching newbies on how to deal with pursuers spell in blighttown and sen's fortress.

one of them, probably his 3rd build or something showed me how to deal with that spell. i was impressed on how he did it.

anyhow, lately i have been getting a lot of "failed to invade" message. i wonder if it has something to do with it.

I have less than half a star, and I've had no problems until recently. I think there is another factor giving people problems right now.

As far as I'm aware, Rep has no mechanical influence. It's an incredibly flawed system though, and usually better player (or expert trolls) end up with lower reps.

Make sure your NAT type says Open in Network Settings. If it says Moderate or Strict, that's your problem.

Try to get summoned (as a red or white, whatever).

Invades seem pretty gimped at times, either there's no one on when I'm on or something.

Red summons were good though, for some odd reason.

I also wonder HOW others may rate you or how one is able to rate another...?
Guess it's something only gold members are able to do.

There are so many people I would like to rate for being nice or cheating.

^you don't have to be a gold member.

click on players tab, click on their name and go from there.

from what i understand it is also the only way to block players. although it does not working very well for me. i invaded a gravelord servant with infinite hp 4 times in a row, and i blocked him on the first encounter.
