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.

Anyone else having these weirdly ranked games?

Been having killer games where the ranks are heavily skewed like this. Doesn't affect survivor games.

    Occasionally. Feels bad destroying a full group only to learn later they were 3 rank 12-s and a single rank 3.
    I always assumed that quickly filling lobbies is a priority over putting people of similar ranks together, which is btw not such a bad thing: I remember I didn't mind at all being pitted against higher rank players when I was new. You learn faster that way.

    One thing bugs me much more: I don't know why, but the matchmaking algorithm often puts a full team of Japanese or Koreans in my lobbies. Makes no sense, I'm from Eastern Europe, so my ping with them is well over 300. I can't imagine why, you'd think location based filtering is the simplest thing. Quite annoying, really.

    Ughhh this happens to me all the time! & once I reached red ranks, I started getting like.. rank 15 survivors in my lobby and I'd look like, 'I was WONDERING why they were all more potato-y than usual.'

    Something like this never happened to me. But usually I have some SWF that have like two rank 2, one rank 6 and one rank 10 to go against lower rank killers

    It's a miracle you even destroyed them. Good job.

    You might want to cover the names, these forums have a rule against naming people.

    Stuff like this happens if there are no other killers they can face. After some time, killers from other ranks are considered for matchmaking. Guess the killer population is dying slowly.

    I get matches like that all time when am not a high rank but I don't mind it too much as you can kinda already guess what perks are been used within first min of match starting an what kinda survivors your playing against depending on your rank where its 20-15, 15-10, 10-5 an 5-1

    There's not enough Killers for them at their rank. I'm impressed that you managed to get a 3k. Games like that usually end in the Killer being dominated and getting either a 0k or a 1k.

    Seems like people are started to get fed up with the current state of the game for Killers.

    I've had rank 1 ones with low rank SWF buddies in my matches before but nothing like this, this game truly is amazing
