doesn't it ever get old...

...playing with a microphone?  these people bore me to death as killer.  there is no real challenge in playing with 16 perks.  where is the fun in that?

    they think they're hot ######### for doing it too, when in reality they're just being carried by what basically amounts to a cheat.

    I always end up dying in my 4 man swf group anyways.
    So I don't see the problem.
    SFW groups are somewhat too altruistic and so are we.
    Tell me one thing now!
    What is the real problem with SWF?

    I think the main issue with SWF is voice comms. Regardless of whether or not they're considered cheating, they provide a massive advantage due to the ability to share so much information easily. If one person finds a hex, everyone knows it. If one person finds a trap, everyone knows it. If someone dies, all the killer's perks can be told to the others. One of the only weaknesses of SWF is, as you said, they're overly altruistic. But that still means that they have to make the mistake for the killer to take advantage of that.

    What baffles me is how you know:
    a. That they are SWF
    b. When they are on VC

    Or is it just every time you lose this is the only logical explanation you have for your defeat.

    No?

    I play SWF with my best friend, it's the reason why I play the game. When we took a break from DbD, I played Fallout 4 with my microphone on, and she played Tomb Raider. Being able to talk to someone is the fun part of playing SWF vs solo.

    Do you... just not have any friends to make this a relatable concept for you?

    Never gets old. Been playing SWF for 10 months now, and its as awesome as ever.

    Long live SWF.

    The mistake is that they designed this game from the ground up with the idea that the survivors don't know each other, so balance was done with that in mind.

    They realized their mistake after release and added SWF, and it's been nothing but catch up trying to fix the balance.

    SWF will never go away, we just have to live with that fact. Bemoaning that people want to play together is a waste of time.

    What needs to be done is we need to encourage the devs to go ahead and give the solo player the same level of information, so that they can be free to buff the killers to compensate. The devs have already started down that road, we just need to support and encourage them to continue in that direction.

    I don’t even play SWF often and when I do it’s just 2 of us and we don’t use coms, though it’s irrelevant because, these Leatherfaces think everyone is in coms and everyone is SWF.

    They day they want a way to easy ID them but then seem to be able to ID them already so not sure what they want at all

    They want people with friends to have to suffer for their arrogance, mainly.

    Wouldn’t worry they won’t achieve anything. There are voice coms that are third party white listed for the game, they believe everything’s cheating

    Imagine signing up for a job where you start your days by getting bitten by snakes. It's part of the contract and you have to do it. And you absolutely hate this job but you knew what you were signing up for.

    Same goes to you actively readying up with SWF survs in your lobby. You signed up for it. You could have dodged but you didn't! While SWF is literal poison, it's wise to stay away from it.

    The problem here is not every SWF could be considered a "cobra". I have had a few bites from some grass snakes and honestly I can bite harder.
    Some of us Killers are sadistic in nature and a nibble here and there isn't so bad. ;)
