What sight makes you instantly dodge a lobby?

    As survivor I only leave lobbies when I recognize a teammate's name

    You have to be remarkably toxic or garbage for me to have remembered your name without friending you

    As killer: when all 4 survivors have tool boxes. I played against this once and they were all using BNPs and Prove Thyself. Gens FLEW and I felt really dumb. I'm simply not to the level yet where I can deal with that.

    As survivor: when another survivor has a key or someone has a name like: "morimeplz" bcuz EVERY time they do the killer brings ebony mori and tunnels and moris everyone and they end up being unfun matches.

    No, because a match isn’t yet committed to. May as well not have a lobby then. Just search match and instantly load into a game once it’s found enough players.

    As survivor: when there are more than one console player in the lobby, since "console player" is most often is a synonym of "bot".

    As killer: keys, 4 medkits, 4 toolboxes, many flashlights if I'm Wraith, obvious sweat squads that make it obvious from the lobby.

    I'm usually never dodging as survivor since the wait is so long

    As killer, I pretty much only dodge if there's a legacy survivor skin in lobby. They're either a hacker, or they have 4 billion hours in the game and will be absolutely miserable to verse. And also blendettes, because I don't feel like chasing the invisible woman

    My game also mysteriously crashes almost every time a map offering is used. Odd how that works

    The new survivor models.

    They destroyed everything we love about Dwight. Bring back classic Dwight!

    I don't know if this counts as lobby dodging since I only dodge during the loading screen but if I see a busted map offering (survivors bringing haddonfield, killer bringing léry's/Midwich or something) then I dodge. I almost never bring map offerings myself on either side because I think that's unfair, busted, and simply boring and opponents who bring offerings like that tell me their true intentions and I have zero interest playing games against people like that if you have to try that hard to put a game in your favour. No more ruin undying no ed Scratch Mirror Myers or sweaty survivor builds on haddonfield or badham :). If any of this happened by RNG though I'd play it out, but I always check offerings during loading or beginning of the game to ensure.

    Also something I've noticed is that killers tend to play in a really douchey way when they bring stupid offerings like cut coin, which 99.9% of the time has no purpose. They bring sweatiest add ons and build and then insecure camp when they lose their pressure. No thanks.

    As survivor if my teammates are all default fengs or megs or if someone has a key. As killer if I see a key or there aren't any survivors I like in the lobby. I'm picky like that.

    Used to dodge TTVs before I knew what I was doing because I didn't feel like getting embarrassed in front of an audience or any toxic comments towards me.

    I also used to dodge any lobbies full of people with bright/neon clothes. Now they're just easier to see.

  • lauraalauraa Member Posts: 2,286

    from my personal anecdotal experience, identical survivors are not full 4 man SWFs. One of them is usually a random at least. Usually it'll be a pair, and somebody else decides to join in and the 4th guy says ######### it, why not.

    I love it because you can see how fast you are burning through killers. They see 4 Davids and panic. Then you get into a game and you all die at 4 gens because you're all just potatos having fun.

  • C3ToothC3Tooth Member Posts: 4,326

    If you can already feel the sweat from the lobby, you leave.

  • SadsnacksSadsnacks Member Posts: 673

    I just go with my gut.

    First instincts are never wrong in this game.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,586

    Ping, and maybe if someone has a name claiming they'll DC for XYZ reason

  • 1miko1miko Member Posts: 262

    as a solo survivor: 2+ FL, keys and high ping

    as a killer: 3+ toolboxes(if its 2 and a key and a map user i will usually get out too), 4 medkits, high ping and if i would ever check steam profiles if i see someone with 6k+ hours i would usually leave because i dont feel like facing someone that has 10 times my time in this game having that I feel I've been playing this game for ages.

  • Squirrel_ThiccSquirrel_Thicc Member Posts: 2,678

    Because many killers will bring things such as Franklin's or camp and tunnel due to the key. I don't want my matches to be ruined cause of that.

    Also solo queue teammates with keys often play really selfishly.

  • EntitySpawnEntitySpawn Member Posts: 3,196

    I avoid flashlights as survivor not killer, killer is just keys and bad ping

  • JagoJago Member Posts: 1,418

    Okay, so why in *real* competitive games such as LoL or Valorant, dodging is punished ? If you're ready to find a match : you'ready. Then you adjust your perks and addons.

  • ZonkyWizardZonkyWizard Member Posts: 568

    Bad ping & toxic trolls.

  • Patrick1088Patrick1088 Member Posts: 587

    2+ flashlights, especially when playing Wraith lol o don't have the patience for it lol

  • sqmuxlsqmuxl Member Posts: 52

    dwights. im sorry but they ALWAYS bring the [BAD WORD] killer to you

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 5,263

    Just keys. Everyone can agree in their current state they're broken. Maybe if

    I'm not playing a killer I'm confident with or I'm not playing a proper build I might skip 4 med-kits or toolboxes. It takes a lot for me to realistically skip these games. Otherwise I don't dodge.

    Legacy Cosmetics and Keys

    most of the time legacy cosmetics are cheaters who hacked the game to get them and the other times someone who’s genuinely been playing that long so i don’t fancy playing against either of those.

    I shouldn’t have to really explain why keys are a instant dodge

  • GrimoireWeissGrimoireWeiss Member Posts: 1,142

    Bad ping, legacy.

    Sometimes I dodge some popular SWFs that I know on my region because they never want to play actual DBD but ring around the rosie with flashlights.

  • DwarvenTavernDwarvenTavern Member Posts: 2,493

    swfs with horny names, I always tend to dip from those

    As a survivor: tech issues, if the other 3 survivors are carrying flashlights (usually means a SFW that want to be dicks and I get caught in the crossfire). If another survivor’s username has “troll” or “meme” or something like that in the username, I’ll consider dodging. Got into a lobby once with a player whose username was indicating they made trolling videos for YouTube. Sure enough, they worked with killer the entire match. Once bitten twice shy.

    sometimes legacy

    i dont wanna risk it being a hacker since most legacy is hacked in now anyways

  • nutmilk420nutmilk420 Member Posts: 153

    I don't I'll change my perks to light born or something if I see a bunch of flashlights but never dodged a lobby. The way I see it if ur not willing to challange your self you'll never get better at the game. I don't care if a group of swf with 3 flashlights an a key want to call me trash after they hatch escape I still did my challenge 🙃.

  • RenRenRenRen Member Posts: 1,119

    Usually the thing that makes me leave both as survivor and killer is keys and swfs. Keys are honestly not fun for both sides imo, I don't see how people like bringing them. As for swfs, for killer it's pretty obvious why I don't like them but as survivor, I usually either lose cause I get abandoned or I win without feeling much challenge unless it's a spirit, blight, or a really good nurse in which case isn't much of a challenge but more of a how hard is the team going on the gens.
