Lobby Dodging VS Disconnecting in match (would love a Dev response)

    Spine Chill.


    Which helps against EVERY killer.

    Good try, though.

    I have done google search after google search after google search on this. Have never found anything other than blocking chat. Please tell me you aren't yanking my chain. If I can block certain players you don't know how happy this would make me.

  • mmainmmain Member Posts: 430

    Against most killers I have no need of spine chill. We can play this stupid game all day.

  • Cable2486Cable2486 Member Posts: 245

    Actually, mmain is exactly on the mark. DCing affects an in-progress game, which can drasty alter it's outcome on both sides. Lobby dodging does not. Sure it sucks to have to wait longer, but it's still better then having your teammates just up and abandon you because they arbitrarily decided it's no longer worth their time, or wasting time chasing a Survivor, only to have them DC because they realize they can't escape and automatically claim you're Tunneling.

  • mmainmmain Member Posts: 430

    I will try that as soon as I can. Why the ever loving freak have I never come across this? I have blocked people in chat situations, but they still show up in gameplay. Would have loved to have known this a long time ago?

  • McLightningMcLightning Member Posts: 949

    Spine Chill increases repair, heal, and sabo speed while also hard countering the thing that makes Ghostface strong in the first place (and providing you of a heads up for all killers). This isn't useful?

    Okay then. haha

  • Cable2486Cable2486 Member Posts: 245

    Well than I stand corrected, at least where PC is concerned, though that does seem rather odd.

  • mmainmmain Member Posts: 430

    Yes it does all those things. But there are other perks that are much more useful to me personally against every killer other than a ghostface. Everyone has their own strength and weaknesses. I readily admit I am weak against a ghostface and spine chill would be a welcome addition when playing against one. At the same time I don't really have need of it against other killers. There are perks more advantageous to me against other killers. So ha ha all you want. It doesn't change the fact if I played spine chill it would basically be for those times I play against one particular killer. That's fine, but doesn't change the original point I was making.

  • McLightningMcLightning Member Posts: 949

    Okay, then use the other perks then. That's your choice. The point is, these perks do these things, so your entire point was invalid.

  • Cable2486Cable2486 Member Posts: 245

    No chain yanking. Promise. Blocking someone's profile on console prevents them from appearing in online play modes for the majority of titles. I'm sure there may be some exceptions (nothing is perfect) but it's kind of like Facebook. The matchmaking pulls from PlayStation Networks online resources, since it doesn't have it's own internal save database. It relies on the same pathways, so blocking a profile from all interactions also extends to encountering them in gameplay, since there can't be any guarantees that in-game communication doesn't exist. It's ment to be a protection against harassment. Of course, if a game has dedicated server-sided saves, it could be possible to get past that by using a games internal communications database, which I assume is why, as Lightning just pointed out to me, profile blocking doesn't work on PC, or so I would assume.

  • mmainmmain Member Posts: 430

    Glad you think so. I see your whole input on this thread as useless and invalid. Guess we will just have to agree to disagree.

  • mmainmmain Member Posts: 430

    The next time I am in front of my PS4 there are 5 people that will get blocked. Thank you. This bit of information has made this whole post worthwhile.

  • McLightningMcLightning Member Posts: 949

    Yes, my input of "you can't penalize for this for this valid reason" was less pointless than "omg why cant survivor see the killer before the trial". I participated. All you did was say "nuh uh". Guess we'll just have to agree that I'm right.

  • mmainmmain Member Posts: 430

    Would you feel better if I just stroked your ego and just said you're right? I mean I'll do so if it makes you feel better. I'm all about making you feel validated.

  • iBetClaudetteiBetClaudette Member Posts: 299

    Let 'em dodge. Eventually a killer who's not afraid of survivors will play.

  • NicholasNicholas Member Posts: 1,096

    No it does not, you're just luckily not running into people you have blocked. However blocking someone on PlayStation is strictly so they can't send you messages or add you as a friend, it has nothing to do whatsoever with the matchmaker.

  • woundcowboywoundcowboy Member Posts: 599

    I play plenty of survivor, and I don’t have that experience. It does take awhile to find a lobby, but once i’m there, even if the killer quits the game starts soon after.

    @mmain Unfortunately not true, you will still be mm with blocked people.

    @Cable2486 Interesting because Blizzard revealed that Sony didn't allow them to access your blocked list so they had to create their own in-game "Avoid Player" option to do that. That was ultimately removed bc ppl were blocking players they thought were too good and it made a mess of the mm. So you have proof that Behaviour is accessing our blocked list and filtering the mm accordingly? Ime I still get blocked players in my games.

  • Black_FenceBlack_Fence Member Posts: 294

    Urm no. At least on PC you can ONLY block COMMUNICATION on Steam. It does not stop that player being matched with you there is currently no way for block a killer/survivor built in to DBD therefore the only way to avoid playing with that player again is only playing Killer and Lobby dodging. This is what survivor mains think is "unfair' you can be harassed to no end by 1 killer and not be able to do anything about it other than DC and hope you get a lobby quick enough that that killer doesn't get you again. DC penalties are fine if survivors are allowed to lobby dodge by knowing the killers username.

  • HuffHuff Member Posts: 1,347

    I know people run some crazy setups sometimes but realistically I'd say that's not a majority of players. That being said, I wish people didn't have the mentality that if they don't like a certain thing, that means they dodge. It just makes me a little sad because I don't want to bring in like a brown toolbox or something, or a broken key just to try out some of the addon combos, and have the killer think I'm bringing in some OP toolbox or purple key to try to get EZPZ wins or something.

  • Aura_babyyAura_babyy Member Posts: 583

    I dodge poor ping lobbies.

    Healthy habit

    So actually killers are subject to genrush and Survivor to be camped and Tunneled. Why killer can dodge lobby and us survivors cant see killer's name (Id steam not the killer's char) d/c penalty is fine but i want to see who i play with (because issue with some killers) or remove d/c penalty

    DEV Answer plz

    Why do killers not have a choice to play a solo queue as opposed to being forced to play SWF?

    You know.. if half the people that are complaining about the queue times when the killer lobby dodges would go play some killer games, we wouldn't have an issue with queue times.

  • AdelooAdeloo Member Posts: 771

    Punishing lobby dodging would be stupid.

    I lodge as much as survivor than as killer.

    • If i see a streamer i know or a TTV name : because i'm not the an excellent player in any sides and i don't want to be laughed at in anyone stream
    • If i see multiple toxic hair neas : because you know that the game will be super toxic and as killer i don't want to be bullied for no reason and as survivor i don't want to help the bullies to escape by doing gen while they bully the killer.
    • If i see 3+ toolboxes : as survivor it means killer will be merciless and usually tunnel and even tho i don't bring anything this tunneled survivor can be me and i don't want to suffer because of others behaviour, as killer i know how powerful toolboxes are and everyone knows and bringing one is just spitting on the killer face.
  • NoShinyPonyNoShinyPony Member Posts: 4,570

    Punishing killers for lobby dodging wouldn't solve anything.

    If players had to accept every lobby with 3+ toolboxes, even less of them would play killer (hello, longer survivor queues!) and those killers who would continue to play would resort to tunneling, moris etc.

  • KuromiStarwindKuromiStarwind Member Posts: 325

    Yes, let's find MORE ways to make killers not want to play so that our survivor lobbies are even longer. Lobby dodging doesn't do anything anymore since the lobby stays open and you're placed in front of the queue. You have no reason to complain.

  • RuncoreRuncore Member Posts: 328

    You are waiting 30 min for fill lobby because killers are leaving game. No one loves constant whipping from developers every patch to pamper survivors.

  • rhodamiarhodamia Member Posts: 273

    I think a key difference is that being able to know the killers name would be a lot of information for survivors. They might learn that "oh yeah! That guy always plays this type of Hag" and could build to counter the player.

    However the killer can do this with survivors as well (although much less helpful since most survivors run the same perks and have the same playstyle in higher ranks). But that's beside the point.

    Perhaps in an effort of fairness, the killer could be unable to see survivor names as well. If a survivor was so toxic that you would dodge them in the future... Then perhaps there could be a "toxic player" report option at the end of a game that makes it so you can't play against them for a week or so. Same thing for survivors to killers. Be able to remove that killer from your games for a day/week etc.

    This report would not negatively impact the player as it's not a bannable offense to piss people off. But if you don't mind waiting longer for lobbies in order to avoid certain players that you really don't want to play with/against. Then this would be a solid option.

    And what if 4 gens pop in those 2 minutes? You can't fool us with your "git good" attitude. Matches need to be longer, so more chases can happen. Why, as a killer, do I have play hit and run every single match to stand a chance against THE SURVIVORS?
