SWF ruining this game

SWF groups are ruining this game so much. When is the issue going to be address by the devs to make it fair for the killers and also solo survivors?

Why are new players being punished by being put up against the pro SWF groups?

Where is the balance in this game?

    This is exactly what DCUO did when their game died. Put any player with any player because of the lack of players in the actual game.

    Even as solo surv i no want to play with three people SWF. SWF potato can't run out from EW1 Myers and dropped god/save pallet. One minute after i'm dead because this potato dropped pallet, for nothing. So i accept my lose and suicide on first hook, let them fun.

    Hang in there- I think the devs will address SWF at some point this year. It's getting out of control and everyone is complaining. I believe there was a newly posted SWF complaint thread posted above yours, around the same time- yesterday. lol

    Gen rush is a pain in the ass , so imagine if any of the guy play with show what you can do he just has to be with one guy to completly destroy all the gens while the other loop the killer , its clairly Unbalance right now .

    I had to take 3 penalties yesterday because of SWF groups being to over powered. A 3, 4 and a 13 minute penalty. After the 13 min penalty I turned the game off and didn't play again last night.

    Come on today and choose killer to do a daily challenge and it puts in a SWF group againt. I hit a survivor and they disappeared, I then hit a 2nd survivor and they disappeared. 1st genny has just popped and boom I DC'd out the game again because am done giving these pro players better stats. I've not got a 14 minute penalty for it.

    Why do we have to hold out because the devs refuse to look into balancing the games.

    If all you get when playing the killer is SWF groups, I don't think it's worth actually playing as the killer in this game.

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    Just DC'd again as the killer because of an unfair SWF group once again. Wow! How bad can this game actually get? 30 minute penalty this time.

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    Wow! Another ban for 30 minute ban for DC because it puts me in with yet another 4 man SWF group. Cmon this has to be a joke now? This SWF group is killing this game off.

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    I just dcd out of a game because of another pro SWF lobby and didn't get a penalty this time. get in there.

    Maybe stay out of Red and Purple ranks? This is a social game, people play with their friends. Killing SWF could actually stop this game. Remember, just DC and let the survs have a laugh.

  • LetsPlayTogetherLetsPlayTogether Member Posts: 2,117

    In your case SWF isnt the problem. At first its the matchmaking, cause youre obviously much worse than those SWFs. Second, obviously your mindset isnt suited for playing competitive games, if you DC just because the other side is better.

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    Obviously the other team is better. If they're rank 1-9 red and purples with thousands of hours of game play compared to me rank 12 killer with maximum level killer at 15 with green perks and about couple days worth of game play.

    How can it put me into SWF lobbies like this?

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    Fair enough if people play with their friends but SWF is to over powered to go up against killers in this game. There needs some mort of buff to killers or nerf to SWF when people are playing together.

    I DC as killer and get a penalty because of unfair SWF lobbies all the time. Why should SWF lobbies get easy matches to pad their stats, why is it the SWF lobbies only be put up against rank 3 killers for once instead of us rank 12 noob killers.

    I've resorted to tunnelling the same survivor and face camping just to get at least 1 kill in the game. Is it fun for me? No, it's not fun for me having to do this. As soon as I go after someone, I get led around the map lopped over and over again by the SWF groups. So camping and tunnelling has became my only option now.

    Quit dcing you will never get better by giving up. I was a rank 12 killer getting stomped on not to long ago but didn’t give up and it made me a better killer. I’m rank 4 now and still have a bad game every now and then but mostly 2k or 4K every game. As for swf they usually have one sometimes two good loopers who will follow you around and keep you chasing them. I go for the ones doing gens first cause they usually can’t loop very good just watch for the flashlight saver hiding near.make sure to pick them up facing a wall or something if you can.

    I;ve just been in a lobby with yet another SWF group and guess what. [BAD WORD] game again that I had to DC out of. Another 30 minute penalty because the game puts me in another unfair match. Wow! How can this game hate new players and solo players so much?

    Dead game

    Are you a meme?

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    Has SWF lobbies been nerfed yet? Not been on game for a few days and played one game with 4 swf, played a 2nd game and just dcd out of it because it was another SWF groups again taking a 4 minute penalty.

    Why am I being punished for not wanting to play unfair matches?

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    After the 4 minute penalty was over, I tried to join another lobby. Never guess what... I could already tell it was another SWF group so I just turned the game off. No wonder this game was free on PS+. It's not very well balanced.

  • ThatbrownmonsterThatbrownmonster Member Posts: 1,641

    Don't worry devs are buffing solo survivors soo everyone is op

    If every survivor is op, no one is op!

  • Mat_SellaMat_Sella Member Posts: 2,559

    lmao, SWF is the only reason this game is still alive.

  • APoipleTurtleAPoipleTurtle Member Posts: 1,200

    SWF is the strongest "role" available in the game, mostly because communication is extremely powerful (making a lot of team and killer tracking perks unnecessary in a lot of cases) and killer will have to lose a lot of time dealing with 4 competent survivors running second-chance perks (mainly DS, Unbreakable and Dead Hard).

    The problem is, balancing killers around these good SWF players will make the solo survivor experience really rough (it IS the weakest role of DbD). Most players actually still do play by themselves with random teammates.

    If they boost all survivors to have the tools of SWF by default (probably by just enabling gamechat), then the argument against balancing killer around this powerful side falls away and would hopefully be a step towards making killer feel more capable in these trials.

    ...Of course the maps themselves and the matchmaker's map selector will also need some attention, but it could be a start...

    Wraith got 3 kills against swf on comms. Tru3 is just bad. The game starts at 55:21.

  • AnnoyedAtTheGameAnnoyedAtTheGame Member Posts: 539

    The SWF lobbies are absolutely ruining these games now. I'm only just scraping by at rank 10 killer and getting put in with ranks 1,2,2 and a 3 SWF groups. How is this possibly fair? Why are the devs allowing this to happen? When is this going to get fixed?

    Why should us new players be punished like this? Does the devs not care at all about new players? Balance the game out.

    Should be a box you have to tick to be put up against SWF groups because I'm about done with this rubbish now.

  • LetsPlayTogetherLetsPlayTogether Member Posts: 2,117

    You would even lose against solo players of these ranks. Your rant is completely unlogical.
