    To me crossplay is a great feature. Qeue times are so great, with Killer always being under 30 seconds and survivor mostly under 2 minutes.

    ^ I absolutely agree though I will say that in my experience my survivor queues are typically shorter than my killer queues so I'd swap, survivor tends to be under 30 seconds and killer under 2 mins.

    Both however are INFINITELY faster than what they were without crossplay and that is something I appreciate immensely.


    The only problems I have with crossplay is I wish I was paired with fellow PC players more often- just because I have the feature on doesn't mean I want 7/10 games to be full console squads + me. I want to see an even distribution between the players in a match on Console and PC, or at the very least an even distribution across multiple games, if I'm in a squad where everybody else is a console player one match, I'd like the next match to actually be everybody on PC. Unfortunately this isn't what happens, and rarely do I get a full squad of just fellow PC players who I can talk to in pre and post-game match. (Of course this doesn't concern me as much while I'm playing Killer, however for the sake of consistency my point still stands that this is how it should be).


    Which leads me to my second problem, which is that Console players can't talk, I'd like some form of communication enabled for players on these platforms. The community aspect of the game is completely removed when nobody can talk in pre and post game, though it's not something I ever thought I'd miss seeing, the game feels surprisingly less lively without the feature. Especially in pre-game chat I can't say "hey let's stack Bloody Party Streamers" or "I'm running a full looting build, please don't open any chests, I'll leave items in them". Or even just straight up talking about the game, asking for opinions on what they think about "the new chapter that just released" or "new changes that just dropped" that kind of thing.

    I won't lie it's not like I use the chat features constantly, I'm often tabbed out watching youtube while I wait for my next match to start throughout both queue and lobby wait times. Although on the occasion that I do want to communicate with other players or vice versa, it's nice to know that I / they can, but no longer so, especially in conjunction with what I said previously about how I am frequently playing more often than not, with console players instead of PC players. So more often than not, nobody is talking at all which is what attributes to that feeling of loss of that lively communicative environment.


    Certainly these are small prices to pay for just how much better queue times are, still though, it brings to mind the argument about "quality vs. quantity" in this case: The quantity of the number of matches you can play in a certain amount of time vs. your experience about the quality of those matches.

    Crossplay is off for both sides because of how console performance affects playing as Killer and I just keep forgetting to turn it back on for Survivor. My queue times did not change very much.

    Crossplay greatly improved my queue times in both roles, especially when I want to play at off-peak hours.

    I have a slightly different experience to others; survivor queues are usually 1-5 minutes depending on the day, but as killer I'm normally waiting upward of around 10-15 minutes despite having crossplay on.

    Currently playing on console, until at least the performance issues are addressed, crossplay is staying off.

    PS4. I dont want to play against PC players who have an unfair advantage (keyboard/mouse, FPS, etc.)
