Killers, do you dodge lobbies based on specific skins or items?

Yesterday I got dodged 3 times in a row (I asked why) and the killers answered it was because "I am a toxic Nea tryhard and they know it because of the skin I'm using"

As a killer, I NEVER dodge lobbies, it's just not for me, I do like a challenge...

EDIT: On XBOX, if you're in SWF or just see your team's names you can go to "recent players" to check who the killer was

    Do you happen to use Neon Nea pants with the pink hair and mask? Beanie and the jacket?

    Those two for Nea are usually a bad sign.

    I don't ever dodge a lobby unless I know that one of them in particular is an awful person

    I had that happen to me a lot, I'm a p3 Nea main and when I get into a lobby with one or more other Neas the host closes the lobby. I personally never dodged a specific player or character despite the many times I got my ass kicked by survivors. :)

    Only once. RNJesus gifted me with 4 claudette teams 3 times in a row. All wearing the dark brown skins. Didnt have whispers. Decided it wasn't worth it.

    I tend not to dodge unless i see some real bad pings. Although i can across a lobby where to people were called toxicnea & toxicmeg, i was not really in the mood to deal with that.

    I used to as I didnt want to get involved in rounds that would be "un fun". These days if I see I'm going against un fun survivor group (all swf during weekend due the upcoming insta heal nerf) I just play Spirit with Prayer Beads, Amulet and Moris.

    I really enjoy playing killer during weekdays during work hours as there tend to be less toxicity.

    If someone quick switches and I'm not in the mood for bs, I might dodge.

    What's funny is if I see maps, keys, flashlights, on everyone I won't dodge, but if you quick switch, now I think you're kind of scummy and I'm not going to reward that type of behavior.

    In this game clothes do not make the man (or woman) when it comes to skill.

    I normally do not dodge. But I dodged a lobby with 2 L3 (Face only) Survivors with +3k hrs which claimed to be survivor mains. No thank you. (I had about 1.4k back then and play both sides)

    I expect Nea/Meg/Feng with masks to be toxic as hell, so I am careful with them or I take a Ivory Mori just in case. It's more fun to demolish these people.

    Usually in my experience cosmetics means nothing. I dislike ruin and dont use it so seeing multiple toolboxes worries me though.

    Do you stream or anything?

  • VampiroxVampirox Member Posts: 383

    i had a full Legacy Meg and Nea in my group once both with flashlights. Broguth my Franklins downed both next to each other because they were trying to Flashlight save then they dc'd together =/

    Quick switch is when they change their item exactly before the 5 seconds timer so that the killer can't change perks or addons?

  • SnapshotSnapshot Member Posts: 893

    Of course when I see a 100% swf with map, key and two insta heals. Why wouldn't I? The game is not balanced for this at Rank 1

    I’ve never dodged a lobby except when I’m playing survivor and the killer has insane ping. Even when I see 4 flash lights, I just say a prayer to the entity. I know what you mean though, anytime I am pink haired Nea I seem to get dodged a lot, and if not dodged they try and tunnel. I don’t take it personally, it’s funny to me a skin has such a bad rep.

    If all four survivors have items I usually dip, especially if most of them have toolboxes or keys.

  • sensualsatansensualsatan Member Posts: 92

    The only time I dip out of a lobby, regardless of being a survivor or killer, is when the ping is really high or unstable. That's when people start "nursing" around the map and the hit-boxes get really dodgy due to latency.

    There are certain players or SWF squads that I'm just not in the mood for sometimes. If I really want to play Ghostface, there's not much point in staying in a lobby against a 4 man that I know runs 2 OoO from experience.

  • RatedRCriddlerRatedRCriddler Member Posts: 14

    I don't play the game seriously at all. I'll play any group of survivors with any add ons. If I'm able to keep up and somehow win, great. If not, that's fine too. As long as people are having fun.

  • If I’m not in the mood to play super sweaty I’ll dodge keys. Or if they swap last second to a key, camp/tunnel them until they die from it.

    Just use a shroud of separation and watch them scat like flies.

    As a Killer, I don't dodge based on trollbaiting names or flashy cosmetics.

    Killers who do that are chumps and are probably the ones who flood these forums with tears about getting "gEn RuShEd."

    HOWEVER, as a Survivor main solo queue player... if I see ANY of the default cosmetics - including non-license DLC characters, I leave.

    Survivors in the free/default cosmetics tend to be newer and/or casual players with a solo player mindset and selfish interests. They usually backfire gens, unsafe unhook, crouch in a corner of a map, or crabwalk around the map.
