I can blame them for actively ruining the game for everyone else involved.
True but it's rated m for mature is it not?
Also, the devs chose to make changes they thought would help the game in the long run. It's really too early to tell if they were successful.
Dc'ers are purposely ruining the game for others out of spite. See the difference?
The breakdown bug happened last year i think if you had the perk equipped instead of breaking the hook and it coming back after 3 min i think they were gone for the rest of the match so if you doubled hook everyone then you would be down 8 hooks, survivors abused that perk but killers didn't DC over it they kept playing the match till the end and if needed they let the survivors bleed out, So not only a game breaking bug but one that made matches very boring and not any fun for the killer.
So survivors DC because the game got a bit harder but not game breaking, still able to escape and still can loop the killer sorry but there is no good reason for survivors to DC they are just not used to being the power role which is meant to be the killer the days of any one wanting to bully the killer are gone, if they can't handle this then they need to move on to a more easy game and not have people like you defending people that DC for no good reason.
A lot of killers are still slugging at 5 gens, camping, tunneling. The game is very rigged against survivors at the moment due to so many survivor nerfs, hence the dissatisfaction.
The game should be fair and balanced, not be a power fantasy for a killer.
I will say survivors will make a bigger impact on the game if they don't play at all. The devs have actually admitted they don't count DC'ing in their stats which is absurd because that is the greatest indicator of a problem.
As long as survivors continue to play, the game will continue to get worse and worse.
games like this a asymmetric type i.e 1v4 or 1v8 the 1 is meant to be a bit stronger then the 4 to give them a chance as the 4 have more perks and items to help them to win plus teammates if your injured they can heal you a killer has no help they don't have someone come hook a survivor for them.
If you think this game as bad go play F13th game and see what it like when you die in the first 30sec to a 1min and thats it you don't come back your dead, this game you have 3 hook stages, perks to help you and items.
The cause? The cause is that DC penalties aren't harsh enough and the downside of throwing is minimal.
Once BHVR fixes that, these kids will have to deal with it or stop playing.
It doesn't make sense to blame people for not doing generators when generator time has increased. It doesn't make sense to blame solo queue teammates when survivor perks have been nerfed. It doesn't make sense to blame people for quitting when the game has become completely unplayable and not fun at all for them.
It does make sense. You know that gen times have increased thus by clicking 'Find match' you're doing it knowingly and meaning that you want to play the game regardless of that. The same goes for the perks people used to use, nerfed or not. If you don't like it, don't play the game. Don't ruin it for 4 others that DO want to play the game, despite w/e issues anyone might have with w/e aspect of the game.
We are not focused on loss and win. We are telling you that you and all the DCing children overreact a hella lot.
Also "all of that killer stuff sounds fun" tells me that you never played killer and even less on a decent level. So maybe try to see the world from all sides and accept that killer got a little room to breathe and survivor got just a little bit harder, not unplayable.
And if you "don't care about any of that" from the other side don't expect any sympathy for your pleas.
And finally again, DCing is a ######### move no matter what (except for real life problems).
Closing this up here; as this conversation is quickly going around in circles and comments made by the OP to those responding.
Please remember the encouragement, endorsement, or admission to Unsportsmanlike Conduct (i.e. DCing) is against our Forum Rules. And while comments did not fully tread into this territory, its probably a good moment to bring it up as a note. While I understand some changed elements feel "unfun" to many, when you ready up to play, as Killer or as Survivor you are agreeing to play the match to the best of your ability, and DCing should only be reserved for worst-case scenarios (i.e. IRL emergency, game-breaking bugs or issues that you literally are unable to play the game).
As with any changes made in the PTB and live game such as perks and gen speeds, it is monitored by the Team, and community feedback is collected and noted.
