We have been made aware of two new exploits that could potentially be abused to ruin the enjoyment of others. While our team investigates and fixes these issues, we will be banning players who abuse the following (in accordance of our game rules, which can be found here: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/19450/):
- 2+ killers in a match exploit: Abusing bugs to join a public match a second killer
- Legion mend time exploit: Abusing a bug with Filthy Blade and Nasty Blade add-ons to greatly extend mending time

If you witness a player abusing the Legion mend time exploit, please be sure to report them through the in-game report system. There is no need to report the 2+ killers in a match exploit. We have access to data that will allow us to find the players abusing the exploit.

Question from thatmugshot

Would you ever consider changing the 'press to struggle' button which seems to punish players who experience a dip in connection with their death. A possible change could be 'hold to give up'. That would also avoid the people who spam the button before finding out about the change.

Answer

There is different opinions about this in the Design team. It's not planned to be changed soon.

    Question from hoxton888

    Any plans to nerf swf groups? Reduced perks, no addons or something else for 3 or 4 Player SWF?

    Answer

    Design team answer
    The plan is still the same, level the field between solo players and teams along with changes like hiding the killer's perks and addons from the end game tally and giving more information to the killers on the survivor's hook states. This is still all at the idea stage.

    Question from zip-zoobidy-bop

    Why was the pallet vacuum implemented and why has it not been removed yet?

    Answer

    Design team answer
    Pallet vaccum was a fix for getting stuck in the pallet. You will be happy to know that we are testing the new pallet interactions right now. There is a lot more to do on this but it is already looking great!

    Question from nightkiller291

    Can you please rework totems and hex perks please,because they are found easily and destroyed instantly by survivors.

    Answer

    Design team answer
    Along with other spawning issues / testing, we are testing the totems placement and spawning on maps. There is also a discussion about making them less obvious (color, fire)

    Question from TheMeowKiller

    Can we expect new items in the new store such as emotes, item skins and new moris?

    Answer

    Production team answer
    The store is a cosmetic only store. The cosmetics will not impact the gameplay; they are aesthetic additions.
    That said, we are also exploring ideas for store items such as the ones you mentioned.

    Question from geoxhon

    Quick question about the emblem system, when an unhooked survivor gets down within 10 seconds the unhooker basically looses 30 points but if that survivor escapes the killers grasp (flashlight/pallet saves, ds or wiggling), are those 30 points refunded to the unhooker?

    Answer

    Design team answer
    The unhooker will be losing their 30 points. If he is the one making the action to save their teammates by ''escaping the killer's grasp'' he will be rewarded for it but he will not get back the Benevolent points from the intial unhook.

    Question from Arcieth

    Is it possible for there to be a bloodhunt event more frequently? As the poll from the winter event showed, it's what the community wants and likes the most. Maybe a monthly weekend bloodhunt event?

    Answer

    Design team answer
    At the moment, the game economy cannot withstand a bloodpoint multiplier event.

    Question from umbra_bug

    Any details on the ladder system changes that we can expect in the June update?
    Will there just be an extension of the 1-20 range? Or perhaps a system with ELO being depicted by a multi-digit number and a handful of ranks to correspond with specific ranges of that number?
    Currently on the surface, it's impossible to determine skill gaps between players of the same rank

    Answer

    We are not including the ladder system in the June update.
    We need more work to be ready to say anything about this, but be sure that the Community will be the first to know!

    Question from Soarent

    Sorry if this has been asked but in the roadmap you showed it shows chapters quarterly but it doesn’t say anything about new maps for already existing areas or realms (not sure what they are 100% called). Is that still something we will see once in awhile?

    Answer

    With every chapter, a new map will come.
    We cannot reveal which realms they are going to be part of!

    Question from [deleted]

    When/why did you make the decision to have the Emblem system only reward one particular, very aggressive style of play from survivors, and when/why did you design it so that survivors have to fight each other for points rather than working together?

    One of the things I enjoyed about this game was the capacity for teamwork among strangers, but now everyone has to fight for generators, unhooks, heals, killer attention etc. or else they won't pip up and there's no incentive whatsoever to work together on anything.

    Additionally, are there any plans to change the Emblem system so that killers face camping or simply refusing to play at all doesn't make every single survivor depip?

    Answer

    We are currently gathering a lot of feedback from the Community. (Lookout for the Community Feedback survey tomorrow!)
    The first step in the Emblems changes will be bug fixes, then we will start adjusting.

    Question from Maczeeftw

    Same question as a month ago but there were no streams that week

    Do you think this game is becoming less cat and mouse and more cat and dog?
    What I'm trying to say is survivors used to be a lot more potent of stealth with less use in a chase but after a slew of anti stealth mechanics (BBQ , freddy , Doctor) and killer confronting mechanics (desicive strike , dead hard , BT) survivors feel more encouraged to start chases in place of sneaking?
    This isn't helped much by SWF where you can actively know when a killer is busy or not and rendering aura reading perks worthless.

    Answer

    Design team answer
    We always been encouraging meaningful interaction between players in the game.

    Question from cocosdoritofantasy

    Any plans to fix the Hag's lunge post teleport?

    Answer

    Design team answer
    The short lunge past teleport is caused by the fact that you are standing still after you use the teleport. You have no velocity and the long lunge isn't available to you until you reach your top speed (0.22s). That said, this is something we want to look at.

    Question from TheGreatRelate

    As a survivor could we get a button while we're in a hook that keeps others from unhooking you? Like a kicking animation so no one can hook farm you

    Answer

    Design team answer
    This is not something we are exploring right now.
