If you were not allowed to dodge lobbies, would you still play killer?

It's just a hypothetical question: If you could not dodge lobbies anymore (except for bad ping), would you still play killer?

This thread is NOT for discussing why killers are lobby dodging or whether lobby dodging is bad etc...
Please stick to the topic and stay polite, it's a simple survey. :)

    As killer, you can see what the survivors have and make your build accordingly. So, probably. Sometimes it takes so long to get a lobby, I'm not even paying attention to who joins my lobby.

  • LaakeriLaakeri Member Posts: 175

    I would still play killer, but not in weekends. I rarely find myself dodging lobbies in work days during mid day hours.

    So you would DC until you got banned for DC'ing too much and stop playing the game?

    I'm sorry to hear that you already don't play a lot anymore because this game is not fun for you. :(
    I'd really like to see some changes so that more people would feel comfortable playing killer.

    You know when the heavily armed SWF groups are playing, that's for sure. ;)

    I'd still play but maybe like 1 game every now and then, Probably not daily. I barely play anymore as is and see myself playing even less when the new lobby changes come in.

    I'd love to not be bothered by SWF but they ruin the game experience for me, I'm not going to force myself to play something I don't enjoy because of some made up obligation.

    Just no fun atm, either you are genrushed or some toxic SWF wants to make you feel terrible.
    Even if you 4k them with ease, I dont feel like a powerful killer that has achieved sth since I know very well how bad the survivors played for this to happen.
    Also the broken ranking system doesnt help either.

    Amen !

    Honestly ?

    I recently realized that i nearly only played during the halloweed blight event last year.

    Like, maybe 40 hours for the whole 2018.

    Speak for itself, since it's still (sadly) one of my favorite game, but at least i realized it's mostly due to the lack of real competitor for this genre, and i always gave props to their artistic department ( killer's appearance, etc...)

    Still wasn't enought for me to keep the will to still play.

    Pig's release (and all the bugs that came with it, staying in the games for a moment of course) started my break, after Freddy's fiasco and the usual bugged game during the winter, i already got enought of this shits.

    Wanted to go back for Clown's release, he looked cool, Devs promised major changes...

    ...and the in-game store was the last straw.

    Only played the halloweed blight event because the skins looked amazing and only costed some playtime.
    Completed my Legacy I Trapper and took my 3 other favorite skins from differents killers.

    Never really returned back since then.

    I'm glad I'm able to squeeze couple hours before evening hours start in EU. All I need to care is not have lobby full of Russian names and I can most certainly have enjoyable rounds for the most part.

    Nope. Or if I did I'd stick with a select few killers only.

    I would certainly only with overpowered Equipment.

    I mostly dodge bad ping. If I'm having an exceptionally bad day and come across 4 Claudettes or 4 flashligting Feng's I dodge, but in that case I suppose I'd just deal with it or just step away from the game til I'm ready to deal with that kinda thing again.

    Hypothetically speaking, why not? Survivors DC all the time too, why shouldnt I be allowed to do that.

    But all that doesnt really matter since Im taking a break anyway :lol:

    Its up to BHVR to improve a killers life

    Holy crap, for the first time since I got the game, I decided to see what all the fuss was about, to see if it REALLY makes that much of a difference--so I lobby dodged until I knew I was with a group that wasn't a 4 stack (this one was a 2 stack).

    Guess what? The game was actually a LOT more fun. It wasn't over in under 2 minutes, with a bunch of survs teabagging and being assholes.

    Not gonna make this a habit, but the difference between people that are solo/duo vs the people that are 3 and 4 stacked really shows how gamebreaking it is to be able to communicate efficiently over discord. Just wow.

    I have an idea to please everyone without effecting queue times by making them separate. Limit SWF to duos. People can rotate out if they want to play with their friends. This would keep some of the balance, as there are still 2 survs left out of the loop, so to speak, playing the game as intended, without voice chat

    I am really surprised at just how much SWF really does imbalance the game :o

    Yes, I don't dodge lobbies unless it's ping related.

    If people keep dodging for every little thing they dislike a change will happen, they already did that to survivors who used to dodge players who played certain killers and camped by removing profiles from the lobby after the complaints.

    What killers who dodge are doing is no different from the above.

    No. There are tell tale signs of a toxic group. Multiple flashlights and tool boxes. Bright, obnoxious cosmetics (has to be a rule that every player with bright blue hair is toxic). 4 people with the exact same character and look. Not going to deal with it.

  • DarkFox85DarkFox85 Member Posts: 47

    Y’know what? I would still play! But stress will be ramped up for the reasons already stated. So I may need a stiff drink or two before creating a lobby.

    It’s okay. I’ll just roleplay and select The Clown. If I 0k I’ll just stand by the gates like:

    “I and you... friends moving with pallets, in the... the... decisive... in-”

    Or just close the game while in the lobby to avoid DC penalty.

    The hypothetical question was what if you couldnt lobby dodge anymore :wink:
    which DC penalty btw?

  • JoyfulLeaderJoyfulLeader Member Posts: 421

    Stress over a video game is not worth it, I most likely wouldn't play killer if I was forced to play against stress inducing players only to be criticized by then afterwards, I'd probably play F13 instead

  • DreamnomadDreamnomad Member Posts: 1,033

    Well seeing how I don't dodge lobbies and play killer then I'd have to say yes. Dodging lobbies is for wussies.

    I’d still play. You can always camp and tunnel.

    I would absolutely still play, I can equip something OP just as easy as one of them could , I feel like if I don't play with what's intended to be there I'll never get better so I never dodge. 
  • BossBoss Member Posts: 2,856

    Yes.
    Though i'd feel sorry for any AFKers & High Pingers who decide to stay because wat.
