Please read DEVS!!! All survivors join the game at the same time

I don’t have all day to be on my ps4 all day. When it takes a half hour to find a game for the killer to just disconnect because they saw four people join in at once (survive with friends) it makes me not want to waste my time. I’d rather just play another game like Fortnight or RSS because I can find a game instantly and actually enjoy the content. Please make it so all survivers join lobby’s at the same time or a similar idea so killers don’t disconnect because they don’t want to play with SWF even though the game is 100% a team based high level of team communication type game. It doesn’t even make sense that there isn’t even game chat.

    I hate to break it to you, but this game isn't supposed to have high levels of communication precicely because there is no voice chat.

    The game isn't supposed to be 100 percent team based either because, and I quote:
    Mathieu: It is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where you can live in the world of these 70s and 80s horror movies. It’s anti-social multiplayer where survivors have to collaborate and cooperate up to a certain point. The old saying is that you don’t need to be fast than the killer, you just need to be faster than your friends. Whereas the people playing as the killer, they just need to straight up murder everyone.

    That said, killers dodge because the game isn't balanced for how you think the game should be played.

    There's a good chance that if all 4 survivors popped in at the same time, you might just get dodged more.
    Toolbox? Dodge.
    Med kit? Dodge.
    Laurie? Dodge.
    Squadettes? Dodge.
    All the "dumb" reasons people say killers dodge for will be closer to the new standard because there are less clues.

    Killers getting slammed with random difficulty spikes will leave in droves, most likely. 
    With some indication of if the opposition is SWF, they can at least prepare for the difficulty spike.

    You're so busy trying to stop dodging, you probably haven't considered why they dodge.
    Could not have said it better myself. I get that survivors want to play survive with friends and you go in with the intention of winning easily, but survivor mains fail to understand that killers dodge because they know the game will be highly survivor sided. Especially when you see a Quadette team all wearing brown shirts with flashlights. Its simply not fun for the killer. Like you said, having a heads up if a team is SWF is all a killer has.

    Here’s a thought. How about letting the killers toggle yes or no if they want to allow SWF groups to join their room? Problem solved. Low level killers get solos. High level killers can choose to play against the higher difficulty of a coordinated team.

    Yes, I know, most killers will just keep the toggle “off” all the time, but maybe SWFs will learn to behave a little better if they want more rooms to open up for them. 4 survivors out in the open, spinning in circles while hyper teabagging wastes the killer’s time just as much as screening lobbies wastes the survivor’s time. The solo survivors are the innocent victims of all this. A toggle switch would significantly reduce toxicity I think.

    How about a significant bloodpoint bonus for a killer toggling on and playing against swf?

    How about playing killer yourself?

    Oh wait, then you would have to face that unbalanced SWF, mhm yeah thats not an option.

    Maybe go back to fortnite :wink:
