Absolutely one hundred percent wrong.
We've been over this... repeatedly.
Gravelord Servant covenant curses affect WHEREVER the covenant member applied the curse in their world. THEY can only apply the curse, while in human form, in an area of THEIR world where the boss has not been killed. But there are NO RESTRICTIONS on the part of the players getting cursed. It applies if you're in Human or Hollow form. It applies regardless of the status of an area's boss. The curse is ONLY broken when the Gravelord Servant dies. They can be invaded as normal, since they're in Human form, but they can also be counter-invaded by the players they've cursed. They can also commit suicide. But so long as the covenant player is alive and online, those who are cursed will REMAIN cursed. You can temporarily avoid this by playing offline, but once you sign back on, the curse is re-established immediately.
