Making it possible for the survivors to see the gamertag of who they will be facing due to grievance

So I have had someone harassing me on this game for a year now and nothing has got done. In the lobby the killer can see the survivors gamertags.. but the survivors cant see the killers. I would like for that to be changed so that I won't have to go into a match with a killer who I've known likes to spoil the fun of the game. Please Devs make it possible for the survivors to see the killers name on the screen, so that we can choose not to go against someone that likes to harass us.

    The whole direct link to peoples profiles should have been removed a long time ago. DBD is the only game I know where people actually put their profiles on private because of the harrassement and dodging.

    Even if the gamertag or whatever you Xbox people play, they can still go to "Who You're Playing With" and check out the names of the people that are currently in the party.

    If your set to private or offline they cant. But like I said they can see our names on the game sooo there is no hiding in plain sight from someone who wants to harass you

    I asked for this too. I had to change my steam name due to people holding a grudge. No word from Behaviour at all.

    "i want to never play against killers who beat me" is that what you're saying?

    That way people will just Dodge someone they know plays Omega blink nurse for example because they don't want to deal with him.

    No it's "I don't want to be singled out and mori spammed  or hit repeatedly on the hook because this manchild is upset that I called him a camper 30 minutes ago where he facecamped all game".

    This was already present at one point and abused, which is why it was removed.

    And for those who are going to complain that the Killer can still do it, yeah, there's a reason for that: because Killers don't abuse it as much as Survivors did.

    The OP never said he never wanted to play against killers that beat him. Harassment is the issue, not winning or losing.

    And this feature would be (ab)used to avoid Killers who beat you (not you specifically, I mean it in the general sense). It's how these things always go.

    On PS4 you can hold the home button down and you can see who the killer is, and it also shows if they’re appearing offline if you look from the home screen in the now playing section and select view all.

    Because? There's a reason that hasn't been removed: Killers do not dodge nearly as much as Survivors did back when they could.

    And we know it to be true, since a long time ago survivor discovered that they could see who was the killer throught steam recently played with user and people where literally getting dodged for having nurses related achievment.
    But for some reason when the dev decided to fix this they did a 360 turn and added the name of the survivor the killer was against as well as a direct link to their profile in the lobby for some unknow reason.

    Killers have always been able to see Survivors' names in the lobby. It was never removed because Killers do not abuse this nearly as much as Survivors did.

    Hell even survivor didn't see other survivor username either until the game started or if they used the chat

    lmfao, killers dodge all the time.

    and because people get harassed. I've had to change my steam name due to harassment more than once.

  • OnionthingOnionthing Member Posts: 469

    yes.. lets give survivors the ability to duck skilled Killers, and stomp on "EZ" killers even worse. No this wont get abused, truuuuusssttttt theeeeeemm.

    And yet, not as much as Survivors did back when they could see Killers' profiles, or else the devs would've removed it from both sides. Time to face the facts.

    If you're being harassed without justification, that's what the report system is for.

  • HellDescentHellDescent Member Posts: 3,428

    if the person is grieving you send a report ticket with video as proof

    Wrong. Killers could always see them. It was only Survivors that got the ability to do so later on.

    The report system is worthless and you know it.

    Stop defending everything killer sided as always ffs. All I'm hearing is "I wanna see their profiles so I can dodge if I think they're SWF or really good".

    Well considering your name did you per-chance raid their village under the guise of his holiness?
