Make killers pass a minimum 50mbps upload test

If you want to give killers host every single game force them to prove their internet can handle it. No killer log in without passing a minimum 50mbps upload host average. 9 out of 10 games I'm either lagged out and deranked or cannot do anything because I run across the screen to only teleport into the killers arms. Cannot struggle because you cannot tap A because of lag. It's not an unfair request, or even demand at this point. Host isn't hosting for themselves they are hosting for 4 others. 10mbps per player isn't a hard demand to fill. Everyone should continue to report lagging killers as lag switching until this is fixed. A killer wouldn't be happy going against a survivor lagging the match out, why should anyone have to deal with it? I pull gig up gig down but never have an option to host unless I'm killer. Fair is fair 🤷‍♂️

    I have a constant 1gb upload speed, everyone who connects to me in gow has a 32 ms ping while me as host has 23 ms ping. I understand there are variables etc. Something has to be done because this isn't just happening to me but literally every random and teammate I have from the UK, Sweeden, US and CA we lag insanely bad. When I get host in dbd the average ping to me is 68 ms a higher ping with really no rationale. This game is the highest ping I've ever had someone connect and still haven't had anyone lag as killer. It's just unfortunate to derank when you have no control over the issues such as lagging out or not being able to move. I know killers have to notice the person they're hooking just isn't wiggling etc however I'll notice they see no wiggle and walk across the map to the basement 😂

    I've had 3 cool killers so far who noticed it bad and let us do gens. On escape you don't escape you go to a field and fall off the map then die from the entity

    Still the thing is that problem is not that common. I see it here and there, but overall most of my matches are quite consistent. Even if people had to pass a test then it would be a requirement on both sides and substantially start to impact the game and push people out. I've had horrible ping survivors who wont leave a lobby and they had well over 200 ping while the other 3 had amazing ping.

    Also not sure why your trying to brag about your wifi.

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    Survivors cannot see the ping. Only the host/killer can see ping.

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    It's not a wifi brag, it's a statement of what I have and dbd being the only game that raises ping. If any tech folks are here they can see what I'm running, what ping is and make an assertarion over it. I didn't say, haha I've got the best routers, cat 99999 dropped through my walls darn noobs can't afford internet did I? Don't be so upset you're likely one of the lagers if you have such an issue about me wanting fair matches.

    Me personally, I'm bored of this happening in the gif as a survivor. Maybe you're okay with it? Some folks need free kills others can get them fairly ☺

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 2,966

    Survivors can see it. It's quite literally just above the DBD icon when you ready up. Least pretend you know something about this game.

    It's a bug not a ping issue your pointing out in that gif. Just like cant be healed on occasion. Those are confirmed bugs.

    Some people can't even get 50mbps, where I live (a cornfield) we've got 1 provider and the most they offer is 10mbps up and 20mbps down.

    Yikes on bikes dude calm down. I didn't know you could see your own ping, host gets to see everyone's ping. After reading this I have a 60 ms ping to the laggy matches tonight so it's definitely not ping at loading 😂 😂

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    I also thought the same and went direct ports, new cords etc. Checked after each match and killers said they knew they had bad lag but wanted to play. Just seems more or a game pass, I know I have lag but I'm going to murk you anyhow situation.

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    Would it be unfair penalization or would it be fair to all players? Seems a tad unfair to grab host spot knowing you cannot handle it honestly. The minimum specs to play online is 5mbps so even if we went with minimums for all 5 players per Xbox reccomendations, host couldn't be had under 25mbps.

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    That gif only happens when there is lag in a match. Has never happened on a clean connection. Bug = lag in this scenario unless you can point out the exact issue.

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    The biggest thing I'm reading is, "I cannot get internet over 20mbps that would be unfair". To that I say, remove host, can't have host and want to host laggy matches, that's unfair to 4 other people. Should 1 suffer or 4? Sounds like the weight of fairness falls for the 1 currently 😔

    You know your network card is probably no more than 1 Gbit/s?

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 2,966

    Clearly you just believe its Lag despite people who have played this game saying it's just a bug. No I cant point out the exact issue otherwise I would be developing the game or another one.

    See of well over a hundred matches from both sides I have encountered this on both sides only once. My friend has encountered it a few times. It's a bug not a connection issue. Find a different reason to blame your death or find the route issue and contact the dev's with the correct code to fix it.

    I have 8mbps, and can play most online games (Dbd included) just fine. Who the [BAD WORD] nedds that fast Internet to play games?

  • CarlosyluCarlosylu Member Posts: 2,879

    Or how about you leave an unstable lobby to begin with...

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    Host never has a "bad game". You could be on dialup, it'll be "good" for you every time.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 3,066

    It's more than just the host connection. I stream in HD at 60 fps with a 6k bit rate, have never dropped a frame, and still have people accuse me of having [BAD WORD] internet.

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    Oh no, I had no idea. That's insane. So it just falls on needing dedicated servers? The reason for my skeptisim is I see so many saying they've never encountered lag or bugs here and I'm liek, wow what kind of horrid luck do I have? It's honestly keep me more out of killer roles when everyone is connected to my network because I didn't want people thinking I was lag switching if everyone hits my network mid game and bogs me down lol

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 3,066

    I'm centrally located in the US, but it's not out of the question that someone on one of the coasts could experience 200+ ping to my location, especially if they're in Canada. Matchmaking usually goes off of region first, but it gradually expands if there are no matches in the immediate region. I think what happens is people get a game against someone one state over with no lag, then the next game against a host on the other side of the country, and they perceive the second person as a lag switcher.

    The OP doesn't really know what they're talking about and seems to just be throwing out 50MBPS as a random number :-/

    Edit - After reading the whole thread, their levels of both ignorance and cringe are off the charts, haha ;3

    Ping arises primarily due to the physical distance the information has to travel. You can upload however much information you want per second, but the speed at which the information travels will still be equal to or less than the speed of light. This is physics.

    100% OP has the [BAD WORD] connection
