So sad that people actually justify playing swf

MemeMeme Member Posts: 275

I get it, you are insecure about your own skills as a survivor,but always doing swf is so sad. Like my god can someone please tell me what the point of playing killer is if I'm versing 4 perfectly coordinated survivors.at least during the event I can dc so they don't get there 25 lunar points.

    I try to play solo when I can. Sometimes my friends want to play though.

    Regardless, you have tools to your disposal to avoid SWF if it bothers you so much. Not to mention killer queues are instant right now due to this event

    SWF groups has a higher chance of winning against killers. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that all SWF are good. I play with my bf on PS4 and we’re like average. We still have our moments of losing or dying mid-match.

    Just dodge if you see a 4-man?

    The devs are going to change how lobbies work so all 4 survivors load in at the same time no matter if they’re 4 solos or a full SWF squad.

    Dodging will be useless soon. 

    That's not even a reliable way to judge SWF right now though. The best way is to check the survivors' friends lists. If they have their lists privated? Dodge

    There’s nothing wrong with swf, other than the fact that they have an advantage with voice communication.

    I think swf should have a downside to it. I suggested before that swf should be limited to their perk load out. Unlike solo players, swf can not use the same perks. This will increase the team to be more diverse with their perk load out.

    I play with my friends a lot but we actually play. We’re not trying to deliberately make the killer miserable, we just want to play together. Which is how it should be. If they outright took swf away, I think it would be bad for the ps4 where a lot of us play with friends and solo equally. 

    What is NOT okay is the groups that do try to make the killer miserable. Body blocking. Dsing. Blinds at the pallet. Wantonly tea bagging. 360ing. REFUSING TO LEAVE THE MAP AFTER THE GAME IS OVER AND GATES ARE OPENED. etc. And that needs to be resolved.

    This is exactly what I've been saying. SWF should be about team builds, not 4 solo builds with comms.

    Show me games which are multiplayer that don't let you play with friends?

    It's unbalanced but until the devs see fit to do something you will just have to deal with it, maybe instead of crying you could come up with something constructive on how to help solve it instead.

    Either that or try playing another game that doesnt cause you to rage post on the forums and make yourself look silly.

    The devs are going to change how lobbies work so all 4 survivors load in at the same time no matter if they’re 4 solos or a full SWF squad.

    Thats already the case btw.

    What do you mean with dodging will be useless?

    The new matchmaking system will cause all four survivors to appear at the same time.

    I usually play solo. When I play swf is because I want to play with my friends

  • BigBubsBigBubs Member Posts: 683

    Why anyone has to justify playing with friends?

  • Rebel_RavenRebel_Raven Member Posts: 1,654
    If SWF played like 4 solos normally would all the time, I doubt anyone would have a problem with them.

    Thing is, they don't, usually.

    It's not SWF in and of itself, it's all the enhancements to their gameplay survivors love to tack on.

    I play SWF and we out-right suck when playing together.
    We're far too reckless and stupid. Plus we talk a lot, and don't really coordinate perks. Killers usually have a field day when playing againt us. We lose 8/10 matches

    No.... he was right. It’ll be useless. Any killer that does it more will just never enter a game. From that update on, dodging will only work for items, which last second switch can counter

    Survive with friends is fun if you're a survivor. It's a load of dog poop if you're a killer.

    The game is already weighted against the killer but SWF gives survivors a game-breaking advantage.

    One of the difficult aspects of playing solo survivor is that you don't always know where the other survivors are, what they're doing, or ask for help if you need it. In a normal game survivors can't talk to each other - they can't tell each other where the killer is, they can't come up with a plan of "one person pallet loop him for a bit and the others rush gens", they can't tell each other where the killer is and send someone to the other side of the map to do gens, not to mention the fact that SWF get a free 'Empathy' because they can just say "I'm here, come heal me".

    It must be difficult for the devs as they obviously know that SWF is ridiculous in ranked play. But because it draws people into the game they can't change it because without it a lot of people wouldn't play. Sadly, it all comes at the expense of a lot of a killers enjoyment of the game and will ultimately deter good players from the game.

    SWF is here to stay but one way around it to make it sweeter for killers is to make it so they don't lose rank when playing against SWF and get bonus blood points.
