I've gotten friends to play Souls with me and they always whine about how invasions are unfair, invasions suck, how it should be opt-in, the usual. Preaching to the choir here but I don't understand this mindset and think it's pretty poor of them to get so salty over an intended mechanic, it's not like the invader themselves hacked their way into the game to grief them with cheats. Maybe it's because they suck at PvP? I'm average at PvP at best but when I watch, one of them is a serial button masher in PvE and predictably gets owned in PvP. He rage quits. The other one seems like they don't quite gel with Souls. I don't wanna be that person who says GIT GUD but I'm seriously wondering how to tell them both "you suck at PvP, get better and you'll stop dying to invaders" without coming across as an asshole.

Tell them to quit bitching because invaders from other worlds is part of the lore. WE are the Dark Soul also tell them the legend of knight git gud.

Jokes aside tell them they just need to take time to find a fighting style that suits them, something they can smoothly use without a doubt. For me it's a mace/Parry buckler or two short swords for close quarters, Ultrasword/halberd + poison/lacerating knives for large open areas and long sword/rapier/spear for tight narrow spaces
Having a secondary shield thats only high magic/element resistant is always good to have too.
They should practice different types of weapons in offline story for a bit.

Yeah that's the thing. Being invaded is an opt-in thing. They've just probably been running through with 2-3 phantoms stunlocking everything. Which isn't even really playing the game.
