PS4 Matchmaking (Devs Please Respond)

12 minutes (avg) waiting time to find one match as a survivor. This didn't happen before the recent update. If you are supposed to wait more than play, why would you play at all? I don't know what it is, but everytime there's a new patch regarding matchmaking, wait times spike up. If things with matchmaking are fine, why do you touch it at all? I fail to understand Bhvr logic. Very disappointed.

    Yup. I had to stop playing. The game literally has forced me to say, "I can't take this anymore." I quit. This has been by far the worst patch that I can personally remember.

  • KhalednazariKhalednazari Member Posts: 1,410

    I feel the frustration. I had to quit after the Plague's release due to horrible wait times. I came back to play over a month ago. Everything was working fine. I was happy with the wait time. Now I bought the Stranger Things chapter & it was still fine. But the last patch just bombed it. Why do you do this BHVR? We want to play the game.

    It gets to a point where I have to close app cause I am frozen on the “ready up” screen

    I've been having issues since around the time you posted this too. Couldn't get a game with Spirit at the time, so went off to listen to music. Just hopped back on and it took me 7 minutes for a Survivor lobby, and I gave up searching for a Killer lobby. Not long before you posted this I was getting Killer lobbies within like, 30 seconds.

    Booted up the game a half hour ago and still waiting to get into a match on PS4. This is bs.

  • BDS22BDS22 Member Posts: 117

    I've never had to wait long on PS4 playing solo as survivor, the wait times are pretty long. Yesterday it was fine for me, what's happening?

  • FactureFacture Member Posts: 192

    Yeah wait times today seem off. Last night wasn’t too bad. But I’m at 12min avg wait time solo queue and my buddy waited 20 minutes earlier and didn’t find a match

  • WINTERSWINTERS Member Posts: 127

    While this bloodhunt is active, during the day, it takes about 5-8 mins for me. But afternoon, about 3 mins and yes I have timed it lol. And then around 1AM for me, queue times are short asf but I get like 2 or 3 survivors and then wait a while for the 4th.

    I do think it's because of the bloodhunt though. Unless it's normally this bad for you.

    Wait times have been terrible. Solo survivor wasnt too bad a couple days ago, around 3-4 mins, but now its been much worse, like 6-8 mins for solo, longer for duoing or having a squad, and even killer queues are dogshit.

    I wanna play the game but, queue times really do kill my drive to play :/

  • KhalednazariKhalednazari Member Posts: 1,410

    Any developer reading these comments? Multiple players are facing a similar issue. It needs to be addressed.

  • BDS22BDS22 Member Posts: 117

    I'm also being put in lobbies with people around 18 rank when it does put me in a lobby (after waiting 10 minutes or so) and I'm a purple rank. I hope PS4 lobby wait times are fixed soon...

  • Warlock_2020Warlock_2020 Member Posts: 1,868

    @Peanits Are ther no players in the U.S. on steam? Every lobby is 15 minutes just to get Eastern Europe players with high latency.

    Matchmaking issues again?

  • CodyJiaCodyJia Member Posts: 37

    Please look into this. Matchmaking ghost is back up again.

    I've only played about 15 SWF games since the changes because it's become so insufferable.

    During that time I very frequently had:

    Matchmaking errors

    Connection errors at random moments when waiting for a host so you have to hope the lobby still works or better restart it

    Network disconnects

    Party joining in a killer lobby without 1 person

    The full squad having to close and restart the game because the lobby froze after an error (happened way too often)

    On top of all that, uninterrupted waiting times for a game was around 10 - 20 minutes. So you got a random error? Nice, now you're back to square one.

    Generally, around 60% to 70% of the time was spent in the lobby. It's barely worth it. When I say lobbysimulator, it may sound cheeky but inside I'm crying.

  • DBDbuildsYTDBDbuildsYT Member Posts: 1,042

    Same, survivors was fine and fast until this morning now it is 4-5 mins and the three man lobbies are back.

    Killer is 7-8 minutes plus 1-2 fir the game to start.

    Overall a terrible update, lots of errors when swf and still the devs are refusing to stop the production and address these bugs and unbalances before adding new content.

  • KhalednazariKhalednazari Member Posts: 1,410

    Devs, please note. Thanks!

  • KhalednazariKhalednazari Member Posts: 1,410

    Hate the fact that it's double bloodpoints and I'm not able to take the benefit of that.

  • LegitAdventurerLegitAdventurer Member Posts: 505

    I already had two different friends delete there copy of DBD. It'd be one thing if the issue was acknowledged and being worked on but as far as I've noticed everyone is pretty radio silent.

    The fact that this happens around almost every event is just...unnaceptable at this point honestly. Waiting 20 some minutes just for a game on either side, survivor and killer. Its just sad, really

  • stonecoldstonecold Member Posts: 31

    They are working in providing dedicated servers which in my opinion will greatly reduce waiting time.. But don't know when they will be available.

  • KhalednazariKhalednazari Member Posts: 1,410

    I agree. Balance threads are given more importance than matchmaking related threads.

  • DBDbuildsYTDBDbuildsYT Member Posts: 1,042

    Did you try the dedicated servers on the ptb?

    They were an abomination, so don't hold your breath for them.

    The code of dbd, is dubious at best.

    Nothing will change because they are just kicking the can down the road rather stopping everything and fix the game

  • BBQnDemogorgonBBQnDemogorgon Member Posts: 3,581

    They're out on switch right now and live build tests on pc begin in october according to the servers delay blog post.

    They'll be here before ya know it. Technically on live servers next month if you count the tests.

  • DBDbuildsYTDBDbuildsYT Member Posts: 1,042

    IF they work, IF they are an actual improvement.

    I played them quite a lot and they are a big downgrade, so I'm not sure what they will be able to do.

    Currently they are abysmal in performance, let's see

  • fcc2014fcc2014 Member Posts: 4,281

    On my sub account at a rank 15 killer i got 3 matches in an 1hr and 40 mins. The second match someone disconnected immediately on the hawkins map so i only got 2 matches.

    ROFL! Stick it to em', bruh! Ya! *Cheers, fists shaking in air*

  • NikkiwhatNikkiwhat Member Posts: 1,127

    It's redunkculous how long it takes...there was a brief period in time when, for myself, matches were popping like Gods damn Pringles.

    Now it takes a fair bit to load into empty lobbies and slowly trickle into loading up...often Survivors leaving as soon as they notice its only 2/4 for them...usually being 3/4 Survivors. And that's on a fast time...hoping someone doesn't leave before the match starts :/

  • AwakeyAwakey Member Posts: 2,858

    I've been having near instant matches on Xbox recently.

  • fcc2014fcc2014 Member Posts: 4,281

    @StupidPallets 2 accounts and can't play on either. Rank 1 and 3 survivor and rank 4 and 15 killer. It is a goddamn joke. All they do is continually make the game worse with every patch.

  • KhalednazariKhalednazari Member Posts: 1,410

    That's bad :/

    Really hoping this gets addressed asap.

  • GamzelloGamzello Member Posts: 821

    After the update my matchmaking was perfectly fine until after about two days later.

    Instead of getting matched with my rank, (green rank) I was put in the lowest rank of them all. Ranks 16-20.

    It really annoys me because I cannot grind for BPs whatsoever, and killer que takes forever.

    DBD for me right now is unplayable.
