I usually don't mind lag, but it's been really apparent and pretty game breaking in the PvP department. I've gotten and performed back stabs from at least 10 game feet away from the person where I or the host are magnetically teleported back and suddenly a back step animation occurs. One time i was in the middle of a sprint jump where suddenly in the middle of the air i get taken back because i've been 'back stabbed.'

anyone else think the lag is just so unbearable that it's not worth playing PvP at this point?

I dont invade, and I dont care about PvP at all, but I usually run as humand and dont mind getting invaded, but I hate it because I usually lose by chain lagstabs.

I get lagstabbed once, ok Ill roll away or something, but midroll or even running after a succesful roll I get sucked back and stabbed again.

Bah.... w/e

Pretty much my experience. With all this lag and poise it really turns into a slug fest or fishing for backstabs.

well i'm glad to know people agree, i was positive i was going to be flamed. I probably will be later on in the day, eh w/e.

but yeah...super disappointed. i remember that lag wasn't such an issue for PvP in Demons souls. is it a p2p issue? i'm guessing dks doesn't have servers?

I never noticed any lagstabs at all until I took an arrow...

I was lagstabbed across the hall in Anor Londo. As in He was at the big doors and I was by the stairs to the O&S fight.

two word: stop complaining. the game's online is FINE the way it is. More often than not it's a serious lack of skill on your part and all the other complainers in this topic. It's closer to a story you're conjuring up to feel better about getting owned.

do every1 a favor, quit this game, and play in that mode called 'offline.' let the big boys play the PvP

Flamed? Everyone knows lagstabs are the cancer of this game, if someone dares to flame you, chances are he's just a lagstab fisher that's mad because his loved exploit is being attacked.
