Think you could fix crashing first? I've had multiple games where Im automatically disconnected I lose all the points i made that match, items, addons, and a pip I don't need to also be locked out of matches for 5 mins
That's why we only tested DC penalties before putting it live permanently. They won't go live until the game is in a more stable state and that these things won't happen.
When will that be, and what is meant by a more stable state? I think DCs are a huge problem that has been recognized for a long time but is never deeply discussed nor addressed.
ETA: DbD 3 release :P
"Dedicated Servers will help determine if a DC was intentional or not" - not a direct quote
Clearly dedicated servers have no indication of DC being intentional or not.
Sure their could improvements made, but their will always be a way for those who DC to do so without being punished. Making it appear as an unintentional DC, pulling the cord ect.
At least make a game crash nonpunishable . . but then players who insist will find ways to crash their game on purpose.
