I would like to choose if I want to play against a swf team (toxic) or a team which does not really communicate a normal team not between friends

    How would they implement this though? There's no way the game can tell if someone's chatting through Discord or whatever.

    Don't we all.

    If you take more than a minute to think about it, most people would choose not to for the sole reason that it's on average, easier to deal with groups that lack communication.

    Not all SWF's are sweaty bully squads. Yes, the information is very useful, but not everyone can utilise that info well. There are some pretty efficient squads, but what can you do other than try your best?

    Choosing if you could verse grouped Survivors or not would not end well for matchmaking and it would kill wait times for higher ranked Survivor who literally just want to play with their friends. I know it's preferable that bully squads don't ruin the fun for Survivor groups who just want to survive together, but they do, and we get requests like this.

    Sadly, with freedom, comes people who abuse it. In this case it's people abusing SWF and the ability of communication to make the opponents game a living hell. Just remember that not everyone is like that and remember them when you think about this kind of topic.

    This game isn't worth playing without communications just saying learned it on hard way but I did I would rather go dig sand in summer outside whole day than touch solo queue ever again

    There's a difference between an swf and a bully squad. Most swfs are just friends looking to have a good time, whereas bully squads are out to be as toxic as possible. We all know that swf gives survivors an advantage that killers just can't compete with, and having a bully squad mixed in with that makes for a really lousy experience, but most people don't fall into that group.

    I sometimes play the game with one or two friends so I suppose that makes us SWF, but I've only been playing for five months and they've got maybe three months combined. All of us enjoy casual, chill play. None of us are hardcore play to win guys. So while we do chat and laugh and say stuff like "HOLY ######### DID YOU SEE THAT" or "careful, he's coming your way", etc., we're not "play to win" people. We basically just talk about the game, make jokes about random stuff, react to what's happening in-game. It's not a coordinated key / map / flashlight / meta build WoW raid scenario with us.

    I'm pretty sure the game can tell who joined via the SWF lobby.

    Yes let's assume all friends who play together are toxic - eyeroll.

    While they are at it they can make it so survivors can see the killer-their perks-and addons - because no one wants to go against a sweaty killer.

    Generalizations are about as useful as a man who can't get it up at an orgy....

    Recently saw a community manager comment about how they go through all of the threads on here..if so, could you keep a tally on how many people keep saying they don't want to play against SWF's or about SWF's in general then reply here saying how many we need before you guys will forward our complaints to whoever can make a change happen?

    That search filter that filters out SWF's sounds like a good idea.

    Can survivors then also get a queue against non-campy, non-tunnelling killers?
