[CHEATER REPORT] Obvious lag switcher.

In-game-report-system is not easy to use. There is no easy way to attach a video proof of someone cheating, so I decided to report player on this forum.

This guy was mad because I looped him around fence, and he was standing for like 1 minute (he was configuring propably sofware). After 1 minute when he woke he did 4 kills in maybe 60 seconds, because survivors was standing in 1 place due to lag.

Everything is in the video.

PART 1:
DELETED (we are not allowed for naming and shaming)

PART 2:
DELETED (we are not allowed for naming and shaming)

sorry for my bad commentary in english, but i was mad.
This is his steamID: (u can see this steamID also in video)

DELETED (we are not allowed for naming and shaming)
Notice, that he has a lot of funny comments under profile, u can see that on my video also.

Do with that what you want. I will fight with toxicity.

    Dude I get you want to stop them but we can't just name lag switchers and stuff
  • rafiksomrafiksom Member Posts: 50

    @redsopine1
    Better do anything than nothing. Devs don't care about that and I dont believe they will do anything, but u know, I dont want to left that without any action.

    I know the feeling but my game has such bad lag as a survivor I have no way to call out any suspected switching heck I got accused the other day despite live broadcasting my vids which showed people moving all over I just got lucky with a long range throw suddenly I'm a lag switch for using my power (sorry minor vent there)

    We're not allowed to name and shame anyone. You could get into trouble for it. And yeah, it does look like lag switching, but a lot of times I get random lag spikes with different killers, so it might just be an internet thing.
  • rafiksomrafiksom Member Posts: 50

    Ok, so if we are not allowed for reporting players, good luck in the future, when everybody will start to trying lag swith and other stuff. Sorry for naming and shaming a player with "random" lag. I will edit post.

    Please send a report and video to the ACM and Support team. Their link is here:

    https://support.deadbydaylight.com/hc/en-us


    As redsopine1 stated, name shaming is against forum conduct. Use the in-game report system, and the online support page to report grievances and bugs.

    If you have difficulty doing so, at least send a message to a friendly Moderator or ACM staff, and they will make sure to point you in the right direction.

    Also lag switching will never be bannable because u can always say that you have problem with your ISP. Great.

  • rafiksomrafiksom Member Posts: 50

    @ceridwen309
    I did it.
    They sent me a automatic reply that I should use in-game-system to report players and thats all.

    The games have lag recording's for lag switching and dc amounts I know its a bucking pain not calling them out on it but until the devs have enough free people to fully monitor complaints and review the game nothing to be done just constantly broadcast any games as survivor or killer no matter how long they get then look through for the moments where switching happens so you can give the devs the time it occured

    I can confirm that they do read and check through the online reports. They may not personally acknowledge anything right away, but I believe they will get to the bottom of it when they can.

    I believe they also cannot discuss ongoing investigations and reports that they have received.

    Lag switching will be here until they put out dedicated servers which will never happen.
  • rafiksomrafiksom Member Posts: 50

    @ceridwen309
    I am pretty sure they won't do anything, because half year ago I reported a streamer who was using cheats to bug himself in a locker forcing killer to dc. That streamer is streaming to this day. I sent them video proof, link to clips and shots from his twitch profile.

    Trust me, @ceridwen309 they don't give a single ######### about players reports.
    Write to me on private I will sent you link to this twitcher.

    Yes, douchebags have rights to.

  • JedJed Member Posts: 254

    I'm a noob and I already hate these lag switch people. I understand why people keep asking for dedicated servers because it happens way to often.

    Anyone have a link to the videos? Anti-naming and shaming policies are bullshit if you have blatant evidence like that.

    The name and shame rule exists because of mob mentality. Justice is not equal retribution and people aren't guilty just because it looks that way to you, no matter how much knee-jerk reactionaries want to believe otherwise.

    Sorry, can't hear what you're saying over the sound of "BURN THE WITCH".

    As opposed to you showing the video and nothing happening because players can't ban other players. You filed a report, the team will analyze it. If people weren't abusing the report system, they'd get through it a lot faster.

    The fact that you apparently got the wrong steamID tells enough already.

    And no, you cant change it

    Do you want me to show a video of every DCing survivor? Be prepared for some serious spam though :wink:

    There is no point in this xD i dont even think lag switching is a perma ban offense.

    This! More often than not it's someone playing on a hot spot (on console at least). Jumping to conclusions doesn't help and yeah it sux but @Orion is right.

    The forums aren't the place to report people. You can link evidence by sending in a support ticket at https://support.deadbydaylight.com.
