DCs because of unresolved issues
There has been an influx of DCers and hook suicides and I don't blame them. This game is relentless towards the survivors and if you're against someone who isn't doing any of the below and still kills you, it is still a good/fun game. But DCers aren't typically leaving games where the killer is being respectful. Here's a few reasons you've heard a million times over, and my solutions:
slugging. If the killer runs off to find other players to get everyone on the ground, no one can heal each other. These killers will come to check on their bait and find a survivor because healing takes long enough a killer will make it back if or if not finding another survivor in the mix.
Solution: If one player is already on the ground and the killer knocks another person on the ground, that other survivor should be able to pick themselves up the rest of the way. Killers still have deer stalker and nurse's calling.
Face camping/extreme camping. What do I have to say about this? Well, first off if you're here to tell me face camping isn't an issue anymore because swivel hook- I'm describing their actions. If they're in your face and they're sitting there. They're face camping or whatever you want to call it. It upsets me everyone assumes you're playing with friends and they can tell you the killer is face camping them. When you're playing alone (and this is a team based game for survivors, none of this 'oh why did you even check' BS) you're going to waste time running up and seeing the killer is refusing to let a person go. It's cheap, boring, unfair, and mind boggling this issue has not been fixed. Swivel hook is nice but
Solution: If you're not chasing anyone and you're near a hooked survivor you should be losing points after 15 seconds. This game isn't just made for killers, and with this specific issue it really makes me wonder if I should keep playing, because there's a lot of DC's going on, and the best solution would be to fix issues like this.
The hatch. The killer has killed 3 people. There were enough survivors who fixed enough gens to open the hatch. IF the survivor finds the hatch and the killer found it too, there is a long boring stand off and generally no budging on either end until what I've seen, 99% of the time the killer will grab the survivor out of the hatch and get their 4th hook.
Solution: If the last survivor is due to everyone else making it out (or at least 1 person, which means all gens were completed) the killer should I suppose be able to grab the survivor out of the hatch. If during the game everyone else has been sacrificed I believe the killer should not be capable of grabbing the survivor out of the hatch if they do or don't hit them. Again, they already are getting a TON more points than the survivors and have already killed off everyone else.
Killer can see who you are, if you're bringing something, what character you're playing. But we don't even get to see their name. The reason this is a huge concern of mine is, if you played against someone and you didn't like their play style and god forbid the devs think all of the above isn't important. I'd like the opportunity to leave the game to play with someone else. I don't need to know what killer they are, or what perks. I want to know who I'm playing against.
This game has a lot of flaws, but these I think most survivors can agree are the biggest, besides certain broken abilities. There are a lot of people who also hate tunneling, but firstly I don't know what you would do to fix this specific issues and secondly the chase is a huge part of the game. If these issues above were taken care of I believe tunneling would be slightly more difficult leaving more room for recovery and a good time for everyone.
I don't blame DC'ers I blame the game. I've played plenty of PVP games where there's the occasional DCer but this game is getting bad... really bad. And it's hard to stick around with the game feels so unbalanced.
MESSAGE TO KILLER MAINS: Pallet looping still takes skill, my heart goes out to you I still think it's rough and I have experienced this playing as killer. Don't assume I don't/haven't play killer. Killer has way more advantages and control over the game, and though I think they should have control, the game gives the above unfair advantages too, however you can still have control/fun/kills without using the above tactics. Gen rush isn't a thing, if you're a good killer some games you get everyone super fast, some games the survivors are better than you and will get gens super fast.
