Killer DC should has other punishment but not a penalties

For the god please.

I am waiting here like nearly 20mins to find a killer to play with.

When you punish a killer by penalties you are punish four survivors in the same time.

Please!give them some other punishment instead of that penalties.

    No, time penalty is fine.

    What? Queue times are fine if you play during normal hours. Queue times are longer at night because you need four survivors and one killer for every match. There are far fewer people playing.

    I believe the DC penalty should be removed for both survivor and killer and replaced with something a bit fairer.

    Because there are many reasons a player would D/C its doesnt always mean it is a rage quit.

    For example. as a killer if you get a hacker in your lobby then you have to either wait untill they get bored or d/c but then your punished for that despite a hacker basicly forcing the D/C

    You could have internet issues - This is often a common reason for a D/C. I myself have had this issue were my internet suddenly goes down thru no fault of my own and i come back to a time out penalty. I know this was address by the devs in a post before but them simply say "ensure you have a stable connection" is a bit bull because even a stable connection from router to PC/Laptop/Console could still go down because of your IP.

    Overly aggressive and bully squad survivors - I wouldnt class this as a "rage quit" as such because there are teams of survivors out there who don't play the game (i.e doing gens) but instead just spend the game spamming head on combos and flashlight combos with no intention of doing gens. As a killer the last thing i wanna do is be in a match like this as i see it as a way to basicly hold the game hostage untill they make a mistake.

    And of course you have the rage quit disconnect that is the one that does deserve a punishment.

    Unfortunately as there is no way to determind why a disconnect happens they have set a standard punishment across the board but a penalty time out shouldnt be it. Especially as the more you disconnect the higher the timeout is (when it could be issues not rage quit).

    Maybe instead of punishing with timeouts punish with loss of BP or Irridecent shards or something along those lines.

    Maybe also mention region and the exact times you define as normal?

    In eu peak times would be between 6pm and 1am and then there is a surplus on survivors and they have to wait atleast a few minutes in queue. Which means there are TOO MANY survivor for NOT ENOUGH killer.

    I have to admit that's one of the funniest takes on "no DC penalty please" that i have ever read.

    But it does seem logical and from that point if view, if survivor queue times are longer than 5 minutes, it seems that the occasional killer ragequit with 5 minute penalty is really more punishing for survivor than the killer themselves XD

    Fun fact, there’s this super easy solution. It’s called… drumrolls please, “Don’t DC.”

  • SmukSmuk Member Posts: 735

    90% of killers are facing timeout penalties.

    It makes sense why so long queues

    Mystery solved

    As I said on other topic, killers should not have penalty for d/c, most of the time killers d/c because they actually d/cd. Even in matches you are getting owned you still try to end with a 1k and its usually possible.

    On the other hand, survivor d/c sould have penalty based on gen progress. the more gens, the more the penalty, as a survivor d/cing late game has little to no effect in some circunstances, while a survivor d/cing in the beggining, is basically impossible to come back from.

    Everyone should ‘suffer’ from dc penalties.

    Have you seen how bad it gets without ‘em?

  • AsherFrostAsherFrost Member Posts: 2,340

    So play some matches as killer. Redress the balance. Be the change you want to see.

  • HexDaddyissuesHexDaddyissues Member Posts: 327

    why though?

    just so you're not waiting as long?

    lame reason, try again.

  • CarrowCarrow Member Posts: 500

    The game has such a broken spaghetti code that it can die on itself for no particular reason, there are still multiple thousand of hacker accounts many of which can just crash your game by pressing a button and giving you a big fat penalty at the end, the last thing we need now is the time penalty for killer DCs. Yeah, I'm sure some people would just not put up with getting bullied for ten whole minutes and DC out of frustration, but maybe people playing survivors would realize that their dolls they want to see dance to their tune have agency of their own and develop a sense of minimal decency. It would, ironically enough, lead to a healthier game.
