I like the community of people who just pop in and out of your world, gesture, write messages, drop items, and try to assist or hinder each other that way without any direct communication. In my experience, the people dedicated to SL are horrible to play with as someone who doesn't want to grind for 99 humanity and use a cookie-cutter Giantdad build or whatever you need to fight them.
PvP in Dark Souls 1 was just a chore and I tried to avoid it. Soul Memory isn't perfect, but I like it much more because I'm free to change my character around, and I don't need to worry about over-leveling, or having to make a second character.
Welcome to Reddit,
I also don't like the idea of the playerbase being split, so I can't connect to people outside of my Soul Level even though we're in the same area. With Soul Memory if everyone sticks to their character they can eventually connect with everyone else at the endgame.
I also think the premise that Soul Level makes things fair because everyone is at the same level is totally false. People can still be at higher levels and get matched, lots of people in Dark Souls 1 had 99 humanity and more to burn. And a lot of the time it's people with finely tuned SL builds fighting against other people who just happen to be around that level but aren't min-maxed.
It's not like the goal of the Souls series is to be fair and balanced anyway. More like the opposite. Soul Level matchmaking caters to one group of vocal players, but it's not good for the game overall. This was a very refreshing read, and you brought up valid points. I never really thought of it like that to be honest, and I always assumed that the meta would be "okay for everyone".

But you know what, you're right. SM is much better than SL, and the levels don't matter. What matters is that you are having a great time, improving your playstyle and being a community. If you stay a low level and try to twink, your SM would have increased beyond most players in your range. However, you could still calculate the lowest level you'd need to invade the higher SM areas. After each need to level up, the player would probably get more distance from the SL-SM range for a certain area, until eventually you need to increase your gear because the SL-SM range there has stronger gear, at which point twinking would be null and a new character would need to be created.
Or a backup from earlier on need to be re-loaded. Yes, twinking would be a problem. I dunno how the soft-bans work, if they would be implemented on an account that made a backup or not, but it would be harder to twink than in DS1. Based on the replies so far i am getting the impression Reddit is more concerned with getting Scholar as a DLC for an affordable price rather than for SL based match making.
I can make the agape ring work for myself it's not a deal breaker for me; certainly can't make a petition alone and it is not worth doing unless we can get names at least. Petitioning video game developers is rather silly compared to the problems the world at large faces. We are always gonna be facing problems. We just need to work even harder to solve all of them.
We can't just put things on a backburner till the "major" problems are solved.
I know there are errors but I was wondering if anyone liked this idea? So do weapon upgrades get an inflated value? If it relies on an inflated value system to be balnaced then you could just trade your weapon and be at low SM with high SL. My thoughts on the matter is that while lvl has a flat effect on SM if you for instance max upgrade an S scaling weapon it would have a direct amount added for that item if you have it in your inventory that way it kind of makes you chose how you want to affect you SM and if you chose to put it in your box instead your SM can go down because you have effectively removed something that you spent SM on.
That is my theory of course this needs a lot of refinement. Well I like soul level based matchmaking. And thanks for your continued efforts to get this stickied. I put out my hand and - just so - made him into ash. Blonde from Reservoir Dogs. This is my final attempt "Because, why the hell not".

The total accumulation of all your souls that you have collected so far. This is displayed in the top right of your Player Status screen.

There is no level range in Dark Souls 2 at all. More information will be added below "Because, why the hell not".

The name engraved ring doesn't seem to increase summon range for me. A friend and I have played through together, but I'm consistently tiers above him, and depending on what it's at at the moment, I have to use the small soapstone to connect to him, even when using the ring. Did they change how it works? I don't see any mention of it anywhere. The thing is, to me at least, Dark souls isn't mainly a coop game. Coop can ease your pain sometimes but, it's not meant to be full coop all the way down.
Coop makes the game easier, in case of dark souls 2, even more. I've been playing dark souls 2and I honestly don't know why they put soul memory in the first place if people want to co op shoot make the happen. What a stupidly and unnecessarily convoluted system to just permit player to play together Little wonder the game is so loathed within 'Souls' circles Cracked red eye orb is down 3 not up 3. The name engraved ring and the cracked red eye orb can stack with each other.
