Randomly Disconnecting from game!

JoakimGrDayJoakimGrDay Member Posts: 105

So now I have this issue that whenever I play I will randomly disconnect from any game! It's not my own internet I am 100% sure, even updated network drivers, checked for registry errors. Nothing else to do really! I will soon get banned for disconnecting lol

    This happens to me as well. I was playing with a friend and thought the Killer DC'ed, but my friend said I was the only one that left. It happens fairly frequently, and I am worried that when the dedicated servers come out, it will cause me problems since it looks like I am DC'ing to everyone else.

    It's apparently "a thing" going on with many folks for a bit now. Having this happen every blue moon, as well. Kinda' has me on my toes for the same reason as the above mentioned... hopefully they'll have things sorted out for dedicated servers, or at least be able to tell the difference so it won't be held against those who've been DC'ed against their will.

    Would be nice to get an open clarification on it, though. Ease some minds.

    This happens to me too, at least as a survivor. I have come back from a long break and haven't played Killer yet so I don't know if this affects only survivors.

    But I'm still concerned people think I'm rage quitting and report me and then the ban hammer comes... X_x

    I'm having these issues as well and I did what OP has done, checked drivees, made sure my connection solid and everything was great, but yet it still happens. I really hope they fix this soon because it's almost unplayable for me, it seems like every other match I'm DC'ing randomly and running into errors. Dedicated Servers can't come fast enough.

    Okay, I think it happens as Killer too.... X_x

    The random disconnects may do have something to do with the killer's connection.

    I have noticed that when I play killer and my ping jumps, let's say +10ms, whereas it was constant before, it may happen that one of the survs disconnects (you don't hear that typical dc noice so that means they got kicked).

    If I am correct and has something to do with lag spikes on the killer's side this should be fixed once the dedicated servers are there.

    Not the killers. Because then the killer would disconnect. I think it's mainly the Dead By Daylight servers connection, I mean there are rules in the pc which makes the timeout less/more. If you make it update more frequently it could solve the issue! I haven't tried tho because I switched to my other PC and I don't have this issue anymore thank god :)

    If you're on PC, it can also be bad network drivers.

    Because Windows 10 LOVES to update network drivers. On my old laptop (which is now the wifes) I keep having to reinstall old, known working drivers because windows wants to be helpful and "update" them.

    Except the new one keeps causing loss of internet on both wired and wireless.

    It's super annoying, even after I've told windows never to update my drivers, it used to do it anyway.

    Think I finaly got it to behave on that front.
