We have been made aware of two new exploits that could potentially be abused to ruin the enjoyment of others. While our team investigates and fixes these issues, we will be banning players who abuse the following (in accordance of our game rules, which can be found here: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/19450/):
- 2+ killers in a match exploit: Abusing bugs to join a public match a second killer
- Legion mend time exploit: Abusing a bug with Filthy Blade and Nasty Blade add-ons to greatly extend mending time

If you witness a player abusing the Legion mend time exploit, please be sure to report them through the in-game report system. There is no need to report the 2+ killers in a match exploit. We have access to data that will allow us to find the players abusing the exploit.

Frequent load screen crashes since the 2.5.3 update

A lot of the times when the game starts loading the map, the load screen freezes and I have to force close it through the task manager. This only started happening since the 2.5.3 update and I haven't made any changes to my PC. I also tried verifying the files but everything was ok.

Someone else made a post about this in the general discussions before that it would always crash for them whenever a rare offering was used, and they mentioned that it always crashes whenever a BPS was used. Sure enough, my last crash before making this post was when a BPS was used, which sucks. It also happened when I used an ebony mori. I'm not sure if this is related to the crashes but I just thought I'd mention it.

Also, would these DCs affect my record in the automated DC ban system? That's the main thing I'm worried about.

    Update: and it crashed again. :/

    Update 2: Aaaaand it crashed two more times, awesome!

    Update 3: Make that three times. One of the survivors in my lobby asked if my game crashed, I said yes and they said it's fine and they were also crashing sometimes. I'm going to stop playing for a bit until this get looked into.
