Dude it's just imposible play survivor cause someone get down and them dc like #########!!!!
I've heard they disabled because of a DC bug that's going around right now too; where you can just be kicked from the game for no reason.
So yea, not only is 'DC'ing because you're angry' back, but 'DC'ing because the game just decided to kick you' is back.
It's almost like we've gone back in time to the release of Darkness Among Us.
take a chill pill my dude
I wonder what's making them take so long to address it. Both killers and survivors are just being so blatant about their DCing. They can't even make it seem accidental.
One of the survivors I'm getting grouped with starts the game and immediately runs into the killer and gets hit once? DC.
I run the killer around a couple tiles and they can't catch me because I just outplayed them, resulting in the final gen popping? DC.
It's like... People whine about having to deal with DC penalties but with the penalties currently removed it just shows the difference between how it is now and how it was when they implemented the DC penalties. People will complain about how they should get to DC because "what if I'm stuck in a troll game" or "what if I get slugged" or "what if I go against this thing I don't like" but then the moment people are "allowed" to DC, you see it left and right for the stupidest reasons.
actually, as far as im aware, the DC penality system was disabeled due to an exploit in the system allowing certain individuals to give others who didnt deserve it a lengthy timeout (happened live on stream with Tru3) for literally no reason at all.
to prevent that from happening, the devs disabeled the system for now and are working on a fix for the problem.
after said fix has been made, the penalities will be back.
the problem you're on about is also an issue, but i dont think its the reason why they turned it off. we had that before aswell and the system wasnt disabeled - though it would certainly be nice if they fixed that too!
I wasn't aware of that - the only things of Tru3 I've seen have been videos on this forum and clips of him in that old montage video about all the problems DBD had that made it Survivor-sided.
Fingers crossed they're able to fix both of the issues, sooner rather than later.
I’d rather they didnt bring back dc penalties until all the hacking is fixed. It seems to be increasing.
I’ve just had a match where these 2 tryhard Ace’s both DC’d within a minute of the match because they tried to bully this Huntress and failed. Leaving me and a Tapp with 5 gens. I laughed about it with the killer at the end of the match. Why come into a game to try and make it hell for the killer and then DC like a baby when it backfires? Lmao
It's probably because you play Freddy, the most hated killer at the moment. If you play a more fun killer to face, you'd probably have less dc's.
i mean, thats basically an impossible task.
you can not just "get rid of all hackers", as they too will find new ways to beat the system and improve.
i totally get that this sucks and i definitely agree that there has been an increase of hackers lately (ive seen 3 hackers in the past month), though when i compare the amount of games that are ruined because of hackers to the games that are ruined because of DCs, id rather they reactivated the DC penalities as soon as they can.
as i said: 3 hackers in the last month. that number doesnt stand a chance to the amount of DCs ive had in the same time. ive had 3 people DC in a single trial! and ive experienced many people acting all toxic now that DC penalities are off aswell.
stuff like getting picked up, being carried to a hook and then DCing right in front of the hook, just so the killer wastes as much time as possible with you, but wont get his BBQ stack or the hooking points (both bloodpoint wise AND emblem wise).
thats another thing with DCs, they cripple my emblems! if i had 2 DCs i basically know for sure this game is going to be a safetypip AT BEST, from a game that could have been an actual 2 pip, had they not pulled the plug as soon as something happened they didnt like. (that applies to both sides)
for now, i feel like DCs are the bigger issue
Id rather not be forced to sit in a game and be a hackers plaything.
Im not too fussed about disconnects. Before it was 1st hook suicides which wasnt much better. Game was thrown either way.
This. I've only seen 1 DC all night. 4 Survivor games and 7 killer matches so far. Not exactly a plague. I'm playing in the red ranks with mostly red rank survivors as well. (Which is strange! Usually a rainbow of survivors)
I hate all the people DC'ing. I really think they need to at least reimplement the penalty against those who choose the Leave Match option. 15 minutes every single time. Day ban for 4 or more within 24 hours. Other methods can stay for now because of hackers and random disconnects.
How about we get a better noticeable indicator of it for those left in the match though? I can barely hear the tone right now. Throws me off when it happens during the pickup or carrying of a downed survivor.
they disabled it because it got hacked and people were being given dc penalties that they didn't earn. it will return when they lock it down and rework it.
I can't wait for DC penalties to come back. It's terrible trying to play as solo survivor. Can tell when matched with 2SWF because they'll both DC at start of match or one will die on 3rd hook and their buddy will immediately DC instead of trying to finish the match. Atleast with penalty they would've distracted the killer for a minute to be downed and hooked.
they can't do much till they fix there back door hacking of enforcing DC penalties to players.
All would be fine if they just had Streamer Mode.
