I think their servers have been having issues and acting real flakey for the past 24-48 hours. Simply pinging steamcommunity.com right now will reveal a whole lot of timeouts, with occasional succesful connections. So you could keep trying and you may or may not be able to eventually login. They should probably have things resolved by the weekend.

I tested with a friend who is not using cheat or hack but for some reason we cannot see each other sign. So i think soft ban is present. All the enemy i met in pvp since the update is player who hack. As we can see from unlimited swing of sword sometime even unlimited hp.

I have nothing against item cheat and durability in a pvp fight since it is a test of skills. But seriously unlimited hp?? But I will comment some player whom i fight in pvp without using cheat that i salute them.

I tested another thing about cheating, if you want to keep in a social game and play coop with other just keep in mind to never activate the unlimited health during the game nor when you solo, If you do it you will probably see all the message on the ground ( most of them ) disapear, actualy near ONE hour of game with soul,stamina,unlimited use of all sort and did see all message on the ground , so the only one thing that the anti cheat system in place that can soft ban you is the unlimited health

Hope that will help !

so all my characters are definitely soft banned. even characters i was playing as fully legit.

Do you guys believe the soft ban is for the account as a whole>?

im asking this because im wondering if making a new character will allow any difference as far as playing with other legit players lol

otherwise.. im probably gonna buy a new copy just to play with friends. and this will be my hacked copy.. lame.

edit: meh, nvm. i rushed to the first boss with a new character to test it, and i dont see a single summon sign there. i see plenty of blood marks and messages strewn about, which gave me a lot of hope. i also see a decent number of ghosts running around. but not a SINGLE summon sign.

Increase game difficulty by eliminating co-op functions and increasing enemies and boss's strength and health.

possibility that the above is what removed summon signs, and the ability to be summoned for some users.

When did this game become VAC enabled? it was NOT on the page during pre-order nor for the first few days it was out. I totally dislike when games do this, especially if you are FORCED in to Online play.

They added the VAC badge on the store page when the second (might have been the first) patch hit for PC. I'd give decent odds on that only being on there because of them banning people with vac bans in other games from online play though.

From Software, according to the official Steam support thread...

steamcommunity.com/app/236430/discussions/0/558754259718155271

...indicates that Valve Anti-Cheat is official for the game, but it seems it was implemented poorly into the server due to those who are VAC banned not being able to connect.

So, I think it was not present on the store page due to a bug.

I've actually asked for a refund due to it being sold to me without VAC protection. VAC protection would have prevented me from purchasing this game if they had made me aware of it from the beginning.

Its a good thing i was able to quote a direct link to the situation above in the Australian Consumer Act, I doubt they will be able to deny me my refund.

I'll be pirating this game now instead of purchasing it.
