An invader is supposed to dragonslayer bow snipe you off cliffs and stuff.
They are supposed to run away and wait until you get ganked by 5 enemies and then run in.
Invaders are supposed to hide with camo and backstab you as you walk by.
Why would this limit honor dueling? People who are intent on honor dueling won't use the buddy summon covenant. And no honor duel will last long enough to run out the timer if its of a reasonable length for normal invading.
What's completely stupid is babbies summoning their twink patrol to clear the way for them while they stand back and heal them with Estus. This is an improvement in every way, you can still summon phantoms to give you the edge in tough situations and at the same time are not capable of carrying your ass the entire time.
And for the twinks, me wanting to play with friends should suffer? Yeah thats fair. Really was there no other way to fix twinks outside of screwing everyone over? Improvement my ass.
You aren't supposed to play with people you know in any of the souls games. Otherwise there would have been an invite player function. This change is literally only affecting people who try to cheese the game or place restraints on it that weren't intended in the first place.
