    Software's punishment on people playing Dark Souls early

    I recently stumbled across this and loved it. In order to punish any people that got a copy of Dark Souls a day early, Software had people playing as lv 145 (Max level) Black phantoms invading other players worlds. They would constantly invade their worlds so that no progress could be made. They managed to do this so that their black phantoms could invade players no matter their level.

    I think this is great and hilarious move from Software, Its such a better form of punishment then just simply dropping a banhammer on hundreds of people. In a way its almost preparing them for all their upcoming deaths What are your opinions on this?

    and cheers to you software!

    Instead of stopping them altogether, ruin their time playing it to make them wish they never had. GENIUSSSS

    hahahaa that is great, although I would have found it very annoying/slightly funny that I was getting bullied for the game arriving a day early

    I wonder how many people Rage Quit or started cussing screaming "This is BULLSH*T!" I bet you a very small percentage even had the brains to just well you know. Log of The PSN and play offline. Yeah because that would have made too much sense...
    On the other hand. The fact that Software did this was hilarious. Why Ban people. When you can just make their lives a living hell for a few hours. Me personally, I would have had tears coming out of my eyes. From laughing so hard if I was one of the lvl 145 Software guys. Just owning lvl 5,10,25 people. Would have been like throwing a spit ball at a Battleship.

    Old news is old. I knew about this before the game was even released in Asia, which was 2+ weeks ago now.

    Nevertheless, just one more reason to love FromSoftware. A clever and funny thing to do.

    Oh lord. Troll the dudes who got it early.


    Thou who seeketh the King's sword!
    I am the Old King.
    Show me thine strength and the strength of thine souls.
    Prepare thyself, brave knight.

    everyone who got owned by this payback deserved it. but i wish they would have gotten something else done to them. maybe ban their records from ranking online. then those who got a jump on the rest of us, won't get credit. also those that have early save data banned from online rankings. so they would have to start over... just to be completely fair
