Elden Ring Fan Is Invading Games To Make Players ‘Sit For A Moment’


An Elden Ring player tests the trusting nature of his Spotted companions by invading players and simply asking them to sit down and rest for a moment.

Elden ringThe raid mechanic is a continuation of FromSoftware’s previous titles and allows raiders to enter other players’ games to engage in PvP. There is a big element of Elden ring‘s that is dedicated to this aspect of the game, though many players may never engage with it or even find the in-game item needed to carry out a raid. The host of a raid is chosen indiscriminately from players currently in the same area, so raiders never know who they are about to invade.

PvP is the sole purpose of Elden ring‘s hacking mechanics, so hosts have no reason to trust a random player who just hacked them. However, many players use the raid mechanic for other reasons, such as outlandish jokes or experimenting Elden ring PvP tactics.

It is surprising then, for such a notoriously brutal game, that a strangely polite etiquette between Elden ring PvP players are often observed. Before a PvP fight begins, the players involved usually stand a few feet away and make a well-meaning gesture of greeting to each other. Although invaders have only one goal of killing the host, a trust can be formed quickly with an invader when they do not immediately act on that goal. Now, a Reddit user named GizzaCuppaTay is testing his fellow Tarnished’s trust by hacking 100 players to see what percentage would attack them on sight.


Reddit user’s method for these invasions was to make a character called “sit for a moment” who would use the Rest gesture when invading another player. When the host players encountered the invader, they would be faced with an unexpected moral choice to accept this questionably trustworthy invader’s offer to rest with them for a moment, or kill them outright and resume playing the game. According to GizzaCuppaTay, 29 out of 100 players accepted the offer to sit down for a moment, which shows the strange trust that can quickly form between Elden ring‘s invaders and hosts.


Despite over two-thirds of these players choosing to kill the invader, 29 confident hosts is still a surprisingly healthy number of players who have been confronted with an enemy and have chosen not to attack right away. This is especially the case, as most enemies in Elden ring will attack the player relentlessly on sight, though some Elden ring enemies are still more annoying than others. The Reddit user also shared some screenshots of host players who accepted the offer, with most of them still a cautious distance away from the attacker.

When an attacker does something unique or unusual in Elden Ring, it can be tempting to follow along. But many players who get hacked are simply trying to summon a co-op partner, so it’s understandable when they’d rather remove the raider as quickly as possible rather than fulfill their bizarre request.
