New Policy: Bans for Bads

edited October 2018 in Feedback and Suggestions

In order to help the community as a whole, the devs should not only be banning DCs/overly toxic players, but should also be removing players that are "under performing", aka "bads".

Criteria: Losing 30%+ of games in a week. Statistically, anyone who is legit trying to play the game will never have less than 30% of game losses, just like they should theoretically never DC innocently more than 30% of the time.

Define "losing"

Survivor: Failing to escape
Killer: Failing to kill 2/4
According to BHVR, these are the criteria for "average" games.

Result: No longer eligible to play in public games, but can still participate in KYF matches.

This would help better players have better quality games overall. People who clearly don't actually want to play the game, but lack the intelligence and/or willpower to just uninstall and move on, are no longer able to ruin the game for everyone else. By being restricted to KYF games only, they can [BAD WORD] off all they want during their games (and also make it impossible to refund since they can still play the game without the online factor - see F13 for reference).

    Leave, you suck at ideas.

    Rofl, and if I don't you'll do what tough guy? It's fine if you disagree with my idea, but don't try to bark orders at me when you a) lack any sort of authority whatsoever and b) lack any way to enforce them. Let me know when you get over yourself and we can have a civil discussion. Until then, please leave your 3rd grade playground bullshit where it belongs.

    It wasn’t some military order it’s what I wanted you to do. You don’t need to do it. Anyone with half a brain would know that

    And clearly I have not. What's your next move now, I wonder? I'd wager posting another reply that will yield the same results - nothing.

    Again, disagree with my wish all you want, that's your prerogative, but just do yourself a favor - save your time and just move on to another thread that may listen to "what you want them to do" because I can't make it any clearer that will not be me.

    I get dopamine from making myself seem better than others. So that’s what I’ll continue doing

    Do you realize this is harsh, right? Besides, what if some has the bad luck to die 1st without touching a gen because the killer is facecsmping or tunneling them in several games in a row? Also, there are people better at hiding than running away in chases. This is harsh and no sense.

    Then they shouldn't be playing public games. We're talking escaping 1 out of 3 games or failing to get 2 kills per game every 3 games. Statistics posted by the devs themselves considers these to be"average" and quite honestly not that hard to accomplish for either role.

    Ah, the art of pulling statistics out of one's posterior nether regions...

    You’ve actually managed to surpass my level of disregard and ruthlessness toward other players infamous in game and on the forum. That is not only incredibly difficult, but definitely not a good thing as well.

    He's not wrong...this is a terrible idea.
    Just think about it, this game would get no new people playing it because of how ruthless it would become. By the way if people are always dcing that is probably because you are playing with lower ranks. Players still dc in high rank but it happens a lot less than with lower ranks. And if you just do not like new players get gud and get out of low rank.

    P.S. Your statistics are an utter falsehood.

    Welp, considering a) you have ZERO influence on my life and b) I have ZERO influence on your life, I promise that I'm not scared/intimidated/impressed or whatever you're trying to portray by this comment. You really should've just moved on because, once again, your response has done exactly... NOTHING.

    So, you want to be able to play with people at your skill level, and not with people who are lower skilled.

    If only there was some sort of..... System... That could... Sort players together like that...

    No, that is not what I said at all. I said people who consistently lose 30%+ shouldn't be a hindrance to everyone else because they refuse to "get gud" as A_Simple_Pig has put it. Which is ironic since when you think about it is exactly what this all boils down to - "get gud" or "get out" - which should really be the basis for any competitive game that has a ranking system.

    But that's just me, and you're welcome to disagree.

    Lmao.

    "You suck at the game, banned".

    I get what you're saying it can be annoying to have idiots on your team who go down 10 seconds into your game or they rush unhooks in front of the killer and ruin it for the rest of your team but this idea just isn't going to happen. You can't just ban people for not winning games.

    wait... better players? But why are these better players in the same ranks as people who lose THAT often.
    Hmm something isn't adding up. Maybe stop deranking into the less skilled player ranks and let people have fun with the game they paid for.

  • KilligmaKilligma Member Posts: 373

    In my years of gaming I have read some elitist stuff, but this is definitely one of the best. Instead of understanding that people will filter to a low tier skill level, and allowing them to learn by actively playing the game...we just drop a ban on them? LolKThn

  • AlonaAlona Member Posts: 40

    Oh great, following this advice I would have been banned in my first week of playing.
    I think the only way this would help (already good) players is by don't have any games at all because everyone else is banned before they got the hang of it. Sounds fun.

  • sulaimansulaiman Member Posts: 1,003

    They should just make 2 different "game modes": One for casual play (which doesn´t allow swf), and a competetive one (which allows swf). Then you can kick out players out of competetive for being not that good and not in a group.

  • DragonredkingDragonredking Member Posts: 874

    Sorry your ammount of post have been deemed too low to have the right to stay on the forum.
    You will be ban in a short ammount of time.

  • FibijeanFibijean Member Posts: 8,310

    A lot of people are making fun of you (with good reason, honestly) but for real - if you ban people who aren't good at the game, how do you expect anyone to get better? More importantly, how do you expect the game to sustain itself? Not everyone who is good at the game is going to keep playing it forever. If we banned every new player who isn't a video gaming prodigy, the player base would die a slow and painful (but skilled) death.

    Any new players? Rip the 20$ you just spent and got banned because you are a slow learner. LOL

    As it is, killer lobby times even at lower ranks is long. That's because there are less people playing Survivor. Now with this event its even longer lol... I actually lost my first 30 games if i remember correctly.

    If i only play 1 game today and i dont kill anyone, Banned for lack of performance.

    Taking out SWF(and i [BAD WORD] hate SWF) will actually break the game considering people would stop playing survivor more. This will do the same if you split the queue. You'll be waiting hours to play at rank 15 as killer lol have fun.

    I can literally feel him seething through the screen because everyone doesn't know just how smart he is

    DbD is NOT an university examination: players cannot be banned because they are not clever enough. It would be illegal, too.

    1) You need to look up the definition of "literally" and try again
    2) I'm far from seething. I've literally been chuckling, if not full out laughing, at every reply thus far.

    @Fibijean said:

    As I've stated before, I couldn't care less since not a single person here effects me in life in any way, shape or form. Gonna take a bit more than a few internet nobodies disagreeing with me to get me riled up. Just text on a screen to me.

    I've posted my "wish", on the appropriate thread, to which people are welcome to disagree with. The fact that so many have turned their responses from debates over the wish to personal attacks, clearly violating the very first community rule:

    Do not insult, harass or flame other forum members

    ... has turned this into just entertainment at this point. It's particularly interesting that a moderator has chosen to ignore by replying themselves, although their response is objectively debated to the topic itself, still proves they're intentionally looking past the other non-constructive, ad hominem responses. But that's their prerogative I suppose.

    Feel free to lock the thread; I've said my piece, which again can be freely disagreed with, but it's a pretty safe bet any further responses by those who lack the ability to debate objectively will instead continue to attack personally and accomplish nothing for their efforts (see: grisstyl, Jack11803, etc.).

    Game developers can ban at their discretion for any reason they see fit. Players don't own the game, only the ability to play it on their terms. Player agrees to those terms in the form of a TOS, which can be changed at any point and time. Hell, they could amend "anyone who doesn't spend X $$ per month cannot play (also known as a "subscription")" and it's 100% legal, as proven by any subscription based game.

    EDIT: And before anyone pipes up "there's a difference between being banned and restricted access for not paying a sub", reread my original post that clearly states "restricted to KYF", not a full ban from the game.

    Hi, I'm going to ban you from the forum because your posts aren't deemed good enough to be on here, less than 30% of them have had reactions.

    17 unique reactions across 52 posts (including this one) exceeds 30% (33%) so I would be fine. :);)

  • deadwolfwalkingdeadwolfwalking Member Posts: 624

    I'm a killer main. I play survivor occasionally but i'm horrible at skillchecks. I have severe nerve damage in my fingers that makes precision timing painful and near impossible... I usually provide distraction, cleanse totems and unhook with Borrowed Time. I never escape. And even when i have the opportunity to, i opt to be hooked and die so that the killer can get points. Your ban rule is incredibly pompous.
