Has anyone actually been able to log on on PS3 yet? Officially the servers are supposed to be down tomorrow but not today; haven't had any luck getting online at all.
Dark Souls 2 online not working? (PS3)
I played for about 6 hours today...but was unable to summon or place my summon sign. Every time I tried I got "Failed to place summon sign" instantly. Couldn't even see any pc summons signs when human....could see blood stains, messages and plenty of ghosts running around though. Ended up turning it off cuz i got so bummed that a big portion of the game was unavailable to me for no apparent reason. Hope that gets cleared up quickly.
I am playing on PS3 and have not had any issues summoning or being summoned. Sometimes you get a lot of "summoning failed" messages, but I am assuming that is because someone else grabbed it before you did.
EDIT: Although, I have never been invaded, and my little brother said he tried and it did not work.
Played all day and it worked well , except summoning somehow it is either still a bit busted (did manage to sumon a few) or people are dick and just lay summon signs for their friends or something. Invasion tho worked really great , I joined a certain covenant and was a nonstop series of fights >:3 so no they servers arent busted for me (im in Mexico by the way)
i can see blood stains and messages but theres no summon signs and i cant put one down either no matter where i am in the game what the hells going on ?
If you are in the Company of Champions covenant you can't see summons signs and you can't use your own. You basically can't co-op.
Hasn't worked for me at all. Something about maintenance today, but I didn't get the message firsthand. Regardless, didn't see it work online yesterday either. Wish it was up and running though, it'd be nice to see this shit functioning before I get too much further. Also, never got the DLC pre-order bullshit that was promised when I bought my PSN copy. Whatever.
Network status page currently shows "normal", for whatever that is worth. Probably not much. It does indicate an upcoming PS3 maintenance window beginning at 11pm PDT tonight that is scheduled to last for three hours.
Dark Souls II server for PS3 will be switched off for a short maintenance during the following time frame because of the PSN server maintenance.
March 13th 3:00pm - 6:00pm JST
March 13th 8:00am - 11:00pm GMT
March 13th 2:00am - 5:00am EDT
March 12th 11:00pm - March 13th 2:00am PDT
I can't click the " go online " option in the menu, but I seem to be online anyway since I see players running around.
Same here, and I can seemingly read player messages with varying numbers of votes. I assumed that maybe their servers were running in limp-home mode and only serving messages and incidental phantoms (is that the term for non-summoned phantoms that fade in and out?). In any case, the scheduled maintenance is going on now so I guess I'll try again tomorrow.
@hatking: The game has worked fine with me , done invading , summoning white phantoms etc... I dont get the complaint
Edit: I stand corrected good sir , apparently the servers went bonkers just a little while ago it seems , funny not 30 minutes ago everything was fine and dandy :/
@aetheldod: Maybe they know I was trying to play and shut the servers down. Is this some Truman show adaptation of Dark Souls? I'm going to have to trek to the Namcobandai offices and turn the servers on, personally.
I don't know, I like the game a lot, I'm just getting a little bummed that my first real Souls experience is being hindered by this issue. It'd be nice to see the online bits functioning because they do seem to be a pretty big part of the experience.
Still not working for me since launch. Over 300 sum attempts and all fail. If I put my sign down it will get picked up in 3sec but quickly fails and then I'm kicked offline and have to quit and reload the game to see blood and messages again ( also soapstone and all online items get grayed out after fail unless i reset the game)
Last night, I noticed that I would get a fail error when I tried to summon other people quite often. I don't know if that's a connection issue or it's because so many people are playing and they're beating me to the punch more often than not. Still, I was able to summon after a handful of tries and it didn't take longer than a minute or two.
Well, submitted a CSR report, got a response, did everything they told me to do and tried a few other things as well; it definitely isn't on my end. I feel like this game will be played for years and years and eventually I'll be in a situation to play it reliably but launch stuff is usually pretty entertaining.
I received this information in another email:
"We received some additional information from the development team... they recommended you try deleting the save data for the game and creating new save data as it's possible it may have become corrupted and may also be causing this issue with your connection to the Dark Souls II servers."
Yeah, let's just lose the past 55 hours.
I can confirm that somewhat of online functionality is working. I can summon phantoms and be summoned as well, but if I try to invade a guilty person's world as a blue phantom, I get an error message. And the whole time with the blue Sentinels I've been wearing the ring and not been summoned. And I still have yet to find out what "go online" actually means.
Well it's definitely not my save file, went to a different house and the connection works. Hopefully I can get 30 Bell phantom kills in the next 3 days to get the one thing you can't do offline; the oh so valuable hidden weapon spell. As long as there's no level cap a la forest covenant I should be able to smoke almost anyone.
@demoskinos: Man, some of the BP NPCs in this are just absolutely nuts.
Outside of it not working on my other connection the game's been doing quite alright on virtually every front; bloodstains everywhere. There's a room with 0 enemies that had 7 bloodstains of people falling off a ladder.
You have access to infinite souls online thus the game is inherently easier, to counterbalance this there's several bosses that are much harder with other players (including the Last Giant).
