Killers Lobby Dodging

I'm curious how often Killers dodge lobbies and why?

I know I will occasionally dodge a lobby if I catch a whiff of the "griefer team". You know....key, map, 2 flashlight, and they're all steam friends or private profiles or console players. I mean, honestly, killer queue is so fast it doesn't really matter to me. I'll be done with a game before they're even in one.

    Last weekend i had a rough patch of like 5 in a row that were just awful, i think i dodged about 15 straight lobbies after that for a suitable match.

    It's honestly depending. I know people that refuse to do it no matter what the lobbies look like and others that leave if there isn't at least one default skin present.

    Last weekend was rough. I depipped 2 ranks from 9 to 11 because I kept getting matched to red teams.

    Me, survivors looks too noob or bringing key.

    I like facing swf, it's challenging.

    I’ve always been curious when killers say that. How can survivors LOOK like a “bully squad”?

    I don't really dodge unless I have to go to the bathroom.

  • Mileena_KahnMileena_Kahn Member Posts: 600

    I just don’t see how someone can judge a team of supposedly being a “bully squad” by cosmetics. 4 flashlights maybe? But I normally hear the first reasoning, which is, having something to do with cosmetics.

  • offwhiteknightoffwhiteknight Member Posts: 172

    Cosmetics that require lots of iridescent shards, multiple flashlights, keys, friends on Steam, all identical skins (gotta make sure the OoO is hard to pick out), all cross-platform. This may not be 100% foolproof, but I don't need it to be. You have 2 or 3 of these things, I'm out.

    If I'm on Myers and there's a Key, I am not sticking around. That's pretty much it though.

    If I'm not being super memey, I'll often ditch a lobby if two or more survivors are playing the same character. It's too difficult to keep track of during the match.

    I was in a Solo queue that got dodged 12 x’s consecutively. It’s possible that some of them were the same killer.

    I had a map, so I’m guessing some of them were bringing Undying/Ruin or other hex perks.

    We were in that lobby for almost 10min

    Oh I have and will continue to do so. I only do dailies at night and if I see excessive toolboxes/flashlights and a key. Matching names that look like an obvious team... 4 p3 blendettes I’m moving on. Also if the loading screen comes up with a map and hatch offering, I’m out.

    I don’t want an easy game but if the daily to feral frenzy x4, blink hits, etc I just want to complete that quickly and have a chill game to try and max points which results usually in everybody doing well.

    I lobby dodge because the ONE time I decide not to is when a key & a hatch offering is brought.

    The only time I lobby dodge is because of keys, and that's because they're unfair.

    Oh yeah, I dodge 4 P3 Claudettes too unless I'm doc. I always feel like I'm seeing things when playing against them.

    approximatelly outta 10 lobbies i dodge like 2 or 3. if i see 3 toolboxes or a key and map

  • RittihilattiRittihilatti Member Posts: 124

    I dont care about survivor levels, ranks, skins, items, offerings, until the point im sure it is NOT an SWF.

    Check player profiles. SWF? Dodge.

    I get 90% SWFs when i try to play killer, so i let that go.

    Actually, after 3k hours...the game is currently uninstalled...for the first time in the history.

    It has a good chance to stay like that; for a great cut of the playerbase the next update will be a critical point that might determinate the future of the game.

    Only time I'll dodge is if I see a combination of 4 medkits/keys & I'm doing a meme build & I dont have time to change my perks

  • EntitySpawnEntitySpawn Member Posts: 3,622

    Keys, and certain countries. Keys aren't fun and playing with people say from Russia connections can be pretty bad, I have nothing against anyone but lag isn't fun, keys are unbalanced. Probably would dodge 4man swf I play for fun and honestly a 4man meta that can ruin any fun... not always but swf does need a look at (dont hate 2/3 swf just want a little balance, it's fun with friends just not balanced at high level play)

  • When I played killer if I saw three or more of the same character I dodged

    Lobby dodging is for people who care way too much

  • oxygenoxygen Member Posts: 2,851

    I'll try to find a new lobby if I somehow ended up on a server where I have bad latency.

    But that's honestly the only thing I check before just tabbing out until I hear the sound of the start-of-match camera spin.

  • jrinkwaterjrinkwater Member Posts: 314

    4 people with the same identical skins

    multiple keys

    3/4 toolboxes

    All PC players with multiple TTVs (not that I can't beat them because I do often, it's just they tend to make it feel like a trolly game fighting perks and not players)

  • kaerukaeru Member Posts: 1,556

    I only dodge when ping is 130+. And I may dodge if I have kill/sacrifice challenge, and there is Dwight in my lobby. I can't force myself to kill Dwight.

    I don't care about any outfits and items, so I never dodge lobby prejudging survivors.

  • OniWantsYourMacaroniOniWantsYourMacaroni Member Posts: 5,898

    This thing was THE worst.

    You sometimes had to wait like 20-30 minutes if you wanted to play with friends and then boom,killer dodges the lobby because we are a SWF and then you would have to wait for a new lobby again

  • JasixJasix Member Posts: 1,225

    I have never dodged a lobby as a killer. Why would I? If I am going against a 4 man SWF and they beat me - oh well. If I am going against a 4 man SWF and I win - cool. I don't play to win - I play to have fun.
