About the "DC epidemic"

SythalinSythalin Member Posts: 280

Okay, so for those that do not know, no, not everyone is DCing. In fact, a LOT of people are being involuntarily disconnected for no apparent reason whatsoever since the Plague patch. And despite the what the clueless like to believe, you CAN tell the difference.

  • Voluntary DC: The kill sound plays when the icon changes.
  • Involuntary DC: No sound when icon changes.

I've played 10 killer games and 10 survivor games tonight, and have recorded the results for your viewing pleasure.

So there you have it. I thought things were getting better for a bit; I was able to play for nearly a week without so many DCs. But it seems the ######### is hitting the fan again, and I'm out of patience again. I'll try again when dedicated comes out fully, but if it's the same shitshow with these involuntary DCs count me as another "whiner" who will be done with the game permanently.

    The amount of involuntary DCs is ridiculous in this patch, not to mention how many players can't even load into a match, and on the contrary a lot of people seem to be more interested in complaining about disconnected players and discussing ways to ban them while they don't even bother to tell the difference between a rage quit and an involuntary DC.

    I love them involuntary DC's that happen right as the survivor gets downed/hooked/is being carried to the last hook/ is getting moried.

    so when you disconnect through pulling the cable is that also making no sound? and the "leave match" option is the sound option?

    So, apparently we've been upgraded! Now when you involuntarily DC midgame, you're told the match is "cancelled due to a player not fully loading".

    So glad to see stability still isn't a priority based on the latest patch notes addressing literally ZERO fixes.

    Hah, yeah, that happened to me earlier. I went 'wat' when it kicked me out mid match and the not fully loaded notification popped up. :-( At this point I'm pretty sure the only solution is to wait until the dedicated servers go live.
