Survivor insults and harassment toward killer should be BANNED



  • OldHunterLightOldHunterLight Member Posts: 3,000

    They are not, I still find the same person who told me to kill myself in chat, even when the other 3 randoms said that they reported them because it is just a game.

    They are (or at least they used to be), but it's not permanent. I remember someone getting suspended a few years ago for making some off color remarks when we were in chat. Next time I saw him, he said he was banned for BS and laughed about it.. and he still talked ######### in endgame chat.

    If BHVR's system is like most other online games, offenders are given multiple chances.

    The whole spectrum of wishing harm to somebody ('s family) should be an hard ban of several weeks at the very least.

    Any other kind of comment is to be ignored.

    I generally close all chats. But one day I opened it and saw that my teammate wishes me death 2 times because I didn't unhook them in the EGC. Tbh, I was not offended, but funny.

    I really don't understand why they do it.

    If I were these people who insulted you I'd write to you: "I hope you get tunnelled in your every game ❤️" or "Dear killer, I wish you get 4 SWF tryhards in your every game <3". I usually imagine killers and survivors as bots, but I also have bad days. You have the right to use dirty tactics, but other players have the right to say unpleasant things to you within the limits of what is permitted. If they upset you, close your chat and profile.

    Btw, there are people who like salt. You can begin to enjoy ruining someone's game and collect salty massages. Why not? :)

    Because I am not trying to ruin anyone game. I am simply playing the game. I am not here to collect any salt, just trying to win and do my objective as killer : kill the survivors.

    The truth is : survivors hate loosing. They are 3 main strategies in DBD :

    • Hit multiples survivors to get many people injured and try to get downs fast enough so they don’t have time to rescue, heal and do generators at the sale time : this strategy is dead since the introduction of circle of healing. Now that any survivor can heal himself, you don’t have enough pressure.
    • Gen regression : again, with the introduction of circle of healing your totems will be cleansed extremely fast again good survivors. It’s not working anymore.
    • Snowball with starstruck : this strategy is strong on nurse, trying to get everyone exposed and down them all. But it is very stressful after a while because messing up 1 starstruck can be the difference between winning and loosing.
    • Endgame : with no way out + noed. This strategy is to tunnel 1 survivor and kill him fast. This guarantee at least 2k, and more if you can kill someone else before end game or if they fail to hide during no way out.

    See all I am doing is evaluating my options and trying to win. I don’t have to receive insults or death threats for it, I am just playing the game. The goal of the killer is to kill the survivors, not babysit them and give a great time for everyone.

    Players can use any tactics, but they need to be prepared for the fact that people will be unhappy. And they can express their anger in an aggressive way. If insults affect your mental health, just close the chat and profile. This is fine. Private settings will save your nerve cells. I do it. It works! Really.

    A lot of American/English/Aussie culture is banter. That's just our culture. It's also kind of odd to expect cordial conversation when you've played in a way other plays don't necessarily enjoy. If you're gonna play like that you probably want to close the chat.

    If you're on steam and their on steam, they will be perma banned if you report them via the form and in-game. Check their profile(s) a few days later and you will see a game ban on their profile.

    Source: I reported someone a few days ago that said they'd be "pleased" if I offed my self. Their 3000 hours of progress is now... gone! All because they lost a game and had to type a few inappropriate words. Be nice, guys.

    This is s not OK. This person acted disgustingly and has no right to write these words.

    You have 2 ways. You can report them. Or you can close the chat and profile and don't read this trash.

    Just click on this icon in the endgame chat.

  • SeanzuSeanzu Member Posts: 6,897

    when me and my friends vs each other in games we constantly trash talk each other, teams in football, rugby etc always talk trash to each other, it's always been part of vs games.

  • IgbylucyIgbylucy Member Posts: 36

    This is true. I’ve never in 2 years have gotten a gg from a killer. Just harassment.

  • OldHunterLightOldHunterLight Member Posts: 3,000

    They were still playing 3 days in a row and being matched against me, so I doubt they got banned.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    Another game with BBQ, Pain Resonance, Noed, No way out. Same strat tunnel someone and kill the rest with no way out / noed. They didn't last more than 3gen left. Also I forgot to mori anyone but it doesn't matter because it seems I should DIE because I have a gay flag on my hooks and I play nurse and blight. Yes, death is what I deserve it seems. Thanks DBD for your awesome moderation.

  • GuyFawxGuyFawx Member Posts: 1,818

    Lol its as simple as turning the chat off why read it if you dont like what they say? Its a VS enviroment your bound to make some enemies along the way. Thick skin is often needed in life and asking for players to be banned doesnt solve the real issue. Which if you havent gotten it is you as this is a mature rated game its bound to have some mature language from its audience.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    Sure, if you are gay turn off chat and let the homophobic players own the place.

  • GuyFawxGuyFawx Member Posts: 1,818

    Looki live near west hollywood so ive seen the love and hatred often in its extremes. Please dont take my point as advocating it just that you are bound to stir up more trouble by asking for bans. Let me apologize for you being hurt it wasnt my intention for to dismiss that. Its just that when you typically silence these type of players you only end up infuriating them all the more and their attacks escalate the situation. So again my apologies i didnt mean to come off the wrong way.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    Well, take Overwatch for example. If you are saying these kind of thing you will get reported and then if that's very often, you will have a first warning within 24h, then a season ban, then after multiple season bans a permanent ban. The result is that voicechat and textchat are very clean, when people are mad they leave textchat or voicechat.

    Dead by Daylight is the only game where I see this kind of hatred speech. I am all for freedom of speech, but not in a video game where you little brother of 14 yo can play (despite the game being 18+, some do) and be exposed to this. As long as it is that common (because trust me, it is 1/2 game minimum I get death wishes) I will ask for a change.

    Do you get season bans for that? It's been a while since I kept up with those things. I remember they did just flat out gag you if you were reported for abusive chat enough times.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    In OW yes you will end up banned if you trashtalk. Even in 2022 I spoke with a "smurf" who had to create a new account to be able to play the game over a permanent ban.

  • GuyFawxGuyFawx Member Posts: 1,818

    I do get it as it can often breed hatred in the younger audience without them realizing it and then it manafests without any warning so i get that. The difference with overwatch tho now is that blizzard had that massive drama going on with their company so they needed to save face asap. This game is not nearly as bad as ive seen WoW be in the past with p0rnshire but the hatred will always exist and you will only amplify it more by banning imo.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    Wishing cancer because I don't follow the survivor rulebook let's go.

  • steezo_desteezo_de Member Posts: 948

    It's possible that they didn't get banned right away since devs have said before that they're swamped with reports. Maybe they got banned the 4th day, or the 14th day. *shrug*

  • gilgamergilgamer Member Posts: 1,926

    There's a lot of things in the game that should be bannable offenses and many are, the problem is that they just have such an ineffectual report system that it doesn't matter

    Simply don't look at the end game chat and turn off steam profile comments.
