I like the new system. There will always be offline for those who don't want to get invaded. That reduced health system gives you a reason to collect humanity, or whatever they'll call it, and use it carefully.|
There were so many things in Dark Souls which weren't thought out much at all. Take the stat Resistance or the lightning shield upgrade path, or the elemental weapons pre-DLC-patch - they were way too powerful. Some of the catalyst made no sense whatsoever, only having drawbacks no matter what your intelligence was at.
I hope they take more care this time, like in Demon's, to balance the different styles and aspects of the game. So you'll have a chance against early invaders. They were able to do a better balance in Demon's and this one looks, at least style but also game-mechanic wise like a mix between Demon's and Dark Souls.
I'm confident about the sequel by now.
