Dodged

Trying to squeeze a solo survivor game during halftime of the super bowl. Literally dodged 6 straight games. Pathetic.

    I'm not normally that fussed but yeah it's not nice when survivor queues can take minutes. Especially if there is seemingly no reason to dodge.

    I think dodging SWF is cheese, but I understand why weaker players would want to do that. Dodging any lobby with a solo player is so lame.

    A 3 man swf can be a huge pain in the butt, too. That means the solo gets unlucky.

    Its ok just do like all these killers arguing  how they dont have to play with certain things do and derank yourself, the ques are instant and you never get dodged people can shame it all they want but I didn't pay for lobby master 3000 I paid for dead by daylight and as long as I don't DC enough for a ban then who cares whether they have fun, do you think they care about ruining your game? Do you think they care if you  have fun getting dodged for sometimes 2 hours at a time only to get some laggy match where some poor guy gets face camped right from the start or the killer dc ? Putting me right back in lobby master 3000..... No I'm fine and  I don't care a bit if they're miserable because that's the way they are to me and as some of you have said before when survivors complain " it's not your opponents job to make sure you have fun"

    Some tips...

    Ready up asap. I dodge people who don't ready up fast enough because too many idiots make a last second switch to a toxic loadout.

    Don't have toxic in your name. I'll gladly send you back to the waiting queue.

    Don't be a Squadette.

    Only time I leave or "dodge" is when a survivor has above 250 ping

    Because instead of doing what I do and leaving when I have crappy connection as a survivor, they decide to stay and whine at the end for some reason. Just leave the lobby, I am not going to drop my killer lobby for 1 person.

    I dodge for clones and ping over 300.
    I've had many games where it was sub 300 and the survivor will still start teleporting away even if I should be in lunge distance and they uses their exhaustion perk on 2nd or last hook.

    Most of these 6 dodges were insta. I'm not running any items. I'm running Ace with casual clothing on. It's just nuts how wimpy a lot of these killers are.

    I dont personally dodge. If it's all toolboxes I'll throw on hangman's trick. If it's flashlights and medkits I lose all interest in the conventional definition of winning and play leatherface with Franklin's Demise. I give a chill game and let anyone who isn't toxic go. Anyone who is toxic gets camped.

    This is true. It's far too likely for the SWF to be toxic. Sometimes they're nice, but a lot of time you hear things like "the random sucked" or they gang up on you 'cause how dare you stand up for the killer.

    This. Too many times survivors are fooling around switching characters, outfits, items, back and forth, or stay in a 700 ping lobby hoping for some magic to happen.

    Aren't they openly complaining about queues? Ready up asap before joining and game on! If ping is over 300, leave right away, don't wait until 10 secs are left. You bug the lobby for the other players.

    They most likely dodged because of the other guys in the lobby. Don't forget that killers dodge for a reason and not because they want to play lobby simulator.

    Because of the high population of survivors currently (easier to get points), some get matched in lobbies that they shouldn't. These mismatches have high pings, which is a very valid reason to dodge when people don't leave themselves. There are 3 other survivors in that lobby, it's not necessarily you, that the killer is dodging.

    Here's some more..
    2+ toolboxes means its either genrush mania time or a sabo squad. Neither is fun for me, so that's a dodge.
    If all survivors got 150+ ping, I might consider dodging based upon how bad the "top ping" survivor's ping is.

    I do play killer. My daily was a survivor daily. Thanks for the "advice" though.
  • malloymkmalloymk Member Posts: 537
    Lol. You killers are so toxic. You act like survivors deserve to sit in lobbies for ages, because the game is designed a certain way. Grow up. It's a game.

    The sweet irony is all these stories on reddit about killers disconnecting so survivors can't get out with their lanterns.

    I don't endorse it as it's not nice however there is some kind of karma at play here. All killers wanted for years was for survivors to leave the game once the gens are done, yet they would try to stay in as long as possible making sure the killer sees them tbag, or delaying the game for another 5 minutes because they wanted to go look for the hatch rather than using the open exit gates.

    Now survivors are begging killers to just let them go straight out of the gates :lol:

    Some do.

    You come into my lobby with "toxic" in your name, I click on your profile and see you're part of Ochido's group then you go right back to waiting. Nobody wants to play with idiots like that.

    The sweet irony is that during the whole event, not a single killer DCed against me, survivors however...... oh boi.

    Funny now that you mention it I haven't had a killer D/C either. Most games we arent winning because solo players aren't doing gens but still, the ones we did win no d/c.

    But yeah survivors seems worse than ever. I can understand the solo players who d/c because they're pissed off nobody comes to rescue them (though if they're already on hook they might as well just get sacrificed), but the sheer amount that d/c just so you cant get the hook for the lanterns is astounding. Really [BAD WORD] petty.

    I had several SWF DCing in groups since they didnt want to verse certain killers (happened with spirit, doc and hag)

    Then I was blamed by the remaining plebs that I didnt let them farm..... just lmao :lol:
