    Then keep the lobby as it is but hide survivor profile names..

    Because? There's a reason that hasn't been removed: Killers do not dodge nearly as much as Survivors did back when they could.

    lmfao, killers dodge all the time.

    and because people get harassed. I've had to change my steam name due to harassment more than once.

    And yet, not as much as Survivors did back when they could see Killers' profiles, or else the devs would've removed it from both sides. Time to face the facts.

    If you're being harassed without justification, that's what the report system is for.

    The report system is worthless and you know it.

    Stop defending everything killer sided as always ffs. All I'm hearing is "I wanna see their profiles so I can dodge if I think they're SWF or really good".

    The report system is not worthless, and you'd know that if you'd actually used it. Peanits has proven time and time again that reports are looked at.

    I don't defend anything. I'm explaining why Killers still have the ability to check Survivor profiles and why the reverse isn't true.

    If you're hearing voices, you should see a doctor (not Herman).

    I asked for this too. I had to change my steam name due to people holding a grudge. No word from Behaviour at all.

    Well considering your name did you per-chance raid their village under the guise of his holiness?

    Haha no, I called him a camper for....well camping all game. He somehow got salty over it.

    So you harassed him first. Why am I not surprised?

    The OP never said he never wanted to play against killers that beat him. Harassment is the issue, not winning or losing.

    And this feature would be (ab)used to avoid Killers who beat you (not you specifically, I mean it in the general sense). It's how these things always go.

    And we know it to be true, since a long time ago survivor discovered that they could see who was the killer throught steam recently played with user and people where literally getting dodged for having nurses related achievment.
    But for some reason when the dev decided to fix this they did a 360 turn and added the name of the survivor the killer was against as well as a direct link to their profile in the lobby for some unknow reason.

    Killers have always been able to see Survivors' names in the lobby. It was never removed because Killers do not abuse this nearly as much as Survivors did.

    No
    Not in the lobby atleast.
    Hell even survivor didn't see other survivor username either until the game started or if they used the chat

    Wrong. Killers could always see them. It was only Survivors that got the ability to do so later on.

    No they couldn't

    Interesting. Seems I was wrong. Killers did have the ability to see Survivors' profiles, though, of that I'm certain. Back when infinites became widespread, there was even a blacklist with Survivors who abused them (as you can imagine, it was a very, very long list).

    They saw survivor profile the same way survivor saw killer profile
    Throught the steam recently played with list.
    I can't really blame you for not remenbering, it was like that for like the 4 first month of game release? maybe 5
    Killer have been able to see survivor username for almost 3 time longer than they couldn't see them.

    Yes, remove the names of all the people in the lobby. That way, survivors can not team up in voice chat with randos at the last moment.

    Survivors themselves will later ask to get the change reverted.

    Calling a camper is harassing? As if he didnt ruin the game by standing next to the hook repeatedly hitting someone. Probably a legit strategy in your eyes.

    Get off your high horse. All you do is defend killer side no matter what. Its pathetic. Really wish this forum had a block button.

    Camping and hitting someone repeatedly on the hook are not the same thing. You accused him of the former before you harassed him (yes, it's harassment), and said that he did the latter after you'd harassed him. If you'd actually said everything from the start, then I would've supported your side.

    Get off your paranoid horse.

    Its not the only case ive had. Had 1 killer who teamed up with a survivor to take me out. Had a go at him...get him later and it happens again.

    Had to change my steam name.

    Seriously get lost. Not joking. Theres no good reaosn why anyone should have to constantly change their username due to ingame harassment. The fact that you defend this is [BAD WORD] pathetic and just shows what a toxic little man you are.

    Killers shouldnt be such snowflakes anyway. "Omg he called me a camper....guess that means i need to spend the next game tunneling him down and making him bleed out/hitting him repeatedly on the hook/mori spam"

    Report such behavior and wait about 1-2 minutes until you queue up again, to avoid getting into lobbies with scum like that multiple times in a row. That's what I do in HotS, should work for DbD too.

    I'm not defending anything. Like I said, get off your paranoid horse.

  • mcNuggetsmcNuggets Member Posts: 767

    Thats part of the game.
    It should stay like that.

    Gives killers the opportunity to equip a specific loadout.

  • DinaqmaDinaqma Member Posts: 35
    I agree. We as survivors should get to see who the killer is.. just reason 183774738291 that this game is unbanalced and favors the killers. 
  • DinaqmaDinaqma Member Posts: 35

    if the person is grieving you send a report ticket with video as proof

    Please tell me how to submit a video!

    Survivors had that right a while back and abused the hell out of it, breaking lobbies everywhere.

    Then take it away from the killers, they dodge a lot of lobbies. Fair is fair. THIS.GAME.IS.BROKEN.

    Clearly they don't do it as often as Survivors did, or the devs would've taken it away by now.

    You can see the killer's gamertag just by holding down the ps button go to where is says dbd you'll see currently playing with and if the killer or you aren't offline you'll be able to see it

    If anyone is playing in offline mode, including the killer, they will not show on this list. Sony did this the stop the harassment that was going on fromplayers abusing it. Also, all games are required to use the block list, so if you don’t want to play with someone, just block them. It can take up to an hour for some games to get your updated list.

    Unless they joined as SWF, this should absolutely be true. Give the randos a name like “Player A”, but lock out all profiles, especially on the scoreboard, until the match has completely ended.

    So I have had someone harassing me on this game for a year now and nothing has got done. In the lobby the killer can see the survivors gamertags.. but the survivors cant see the killers. I would like for that to be changed so that I won't have to go into a match with a killer who I've known likes to spoil the fun of the game. Please Devs make it possible for the survivors to see the killers name on the screen, so that we can choose not to go against someone that likes to harass us.

    How exactly are you harassed/griefed?

    Please report that specific player and the devs will bann him. By lobby dodging him, you will just let him harass other players like us. Please remove him from the community, thanks

    Reports do nothing.... I get tunneled and harassed by killers a lot.. and devs don’t care.. they all play killer anyway.

    I actuky got tired of the bs and called Microsoft from now on me and my friends will report him. And he will get permanently banned.

    And how do you know that reports do nothing, exactly? Maybe you're just defining "harassment" as anything you don't like them to do.

    All of the I've been banned threads on here, Reddit, St4eam forums etc would say otherwise and @orion isn't defending it simply because it's killer sided. Since there's 4 survivors to one killer the chances of it being abused are higher on the survivor side.

    Since it would only take 1 person in a lobby to dodge and thus screw the other 3 survivors over along with the killer. Once dedicated servers are out all info will be hosted server side and thus profiles of any kind won't be seen until you're in game.

    At which point anyone that dodges will get flagged a lot quicker for basically rage quitting allowing their account to get caught much quicker .

    Yea because a rank 20 knows sooo much about what goes on for a survivor , you say they abused it but killers abuse it every day and it sometimes takes forty minutes to find a damn match because of it, I can’t wait till you cry babies get your lobby dodge taken away, this game will be in such a better place than it is right now , killer mains are the whiniest bunch , survival rates under 50%? Well we blame people who dc once in a blue moon for that but all that farming that killers do with survivors doesn’t count towards the survival rate , Ive literally seen this logic on here ; oh and if you are more knowledgeable than a rank 20 survivor isn’t what you’re doing called noob stomping when experienced players stay at a beginner level?
  • OrionsFury4789OrionsFury4789 Member Posts: 637

    yes.. lets give survivors the ability to duck skilled Killers, and stomp on "EZ" killers even worse. No this wont get abused, truuuuusssttttt theeeeeemm.

    But it’s ok for killers to dodge anyone that’s beat them before? Your bias is showing , I’m ok with seeing my character to prepare for items possibly but my name should be hidden till the end , I shouldn’t get harrased or dodged with a [BAD WORD] message because someone played me before and I popped in their lobby

    1. I'm not a Killer main
    2. You don't know why I dodge
    3. Survivors DC very frequently, to the point that even other Survivors are complaining about it
    4. I don't play at rank 20
