Due to latency issues in the PTB, we have decided to postpone the server hit validation test until after the update releases on the live version of the game. We will let you know when the test will take place as soon as we can. Thank you all for your patience.

Why do killers get punished when survivors dc.

    I think the devs need to sit back and ask themselves a very important question now that they have dedicated servers: Do we want to sit here and justify people disconnecting all the time and say that we can't implement it because it might have been a loadscreen bug, or a crash, or their internet went out, or a this or a that? Or do we want to say that we have to do something about it, regardless.

    The fact you can sit here and read a bunch of people doing just that, justifying disconnecting for lag or for this or for that, proves that people think it's okay because there is no punishment - and they believe there shouldn't be. They'll find any reason they can think of other than something that was even out of their control to justify them leaving the game.

    The lag is normal. All online games have it to an extend. Though admittedly DBD has it worse off than most.

    Nobody is condoning any of the other bugs though.

    Like I said... if you don't like it, stop playing. We're all waiting for BHVR to get their act together and fix it. But we've weighed our options. We like the game enough to keep playing.

    If you don't like the game because you want a "skill" game then stop playing.

    Survivors lose the possibility to win the match. Unless the killer is actually new to the game, you won't win a 3v1 with 5 gens left. And you won't be able to 'grind' points at all, because you will be under constant pressure from being in that 3v1.

    I know this game pretty well mate. I've played this game for over 2 years at red ranks so I know exactly what I'm saying.

    Your trying to say a disconnect doesn't make much of a difference to a survivor team but your wrong. At any rank only having 3 survivors is an easy win for the killer, unless the play bad. I've had games where a survivor has disconnected and escaped, but that's because the killer was useless and we played really well. On the other hand I've had games where a survivor disconnected and the killer killed us because he was decent.

    The funny part is you literally don't acknowledge any of my points. If a survivor disconnects at the beginning of the game your really trying to tell me that punishes the killer more than the other survivors?

    Ok so you don't pip as killer, big whoop. As survivor I don't really care if I pip or not, same as killer. I'll still make it to rank 1 in a week so I don't care if I get a few black pips in that time.

    If I created a mini rant discussion for everytime a survivor has disconnected and I've black piped because of this then I'd have over 100 discussions.

    I stand by what I said, survivors are punished more than killer when a survivor disconnects. You should think more before you speak lad.

    Jeez i leave the discussing for one day and come back to everyone trash talking eachother bout dcs, now let me sum it up with what i ment:

    As a killer with emblems, it's harder to even pip so to say when it comes down to red ranks in terms of survivors dcing, I.E you hooked everyone 3 times, But the dced, but since the guy dced, you're not even gunna get any emblem score at all. Even though you hooked everyone else 3 times.. but you could still get better scoring with the other emblems of course but, it would still barely blackpip you or even derank you because of One dc, that changes how it would affect you ranking up (Not that rank matters but still) And sure, Survivors get punished harder for it...But most likely won't depip because of it, whereas killer..he would depip / blackpip reguardless of what happened,

    TL:DR Survivors do need to compensate for when others dc, but they needa somehow fix it so it can favor both sides, not just "Oh...we're screwed"

    Sucks on both sides.

    Survivors lose everything when killer "unplugs"

    Killer loses mostly everything when survivors DC.

    All BHVR has to do is reverse engineer the DNA mutation that has these kiddies feeling the need to DC and re-inject the proper DNA back into them so that they may evolve into functioning adults later in life.

    exactly what i was gonna say when i read post. it's very bad for both killers and survivors.

  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    yes in most cases but sometimes survivors do it for know reason, one after the other.

  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    i have seen it where killers still get more bp than survivors, some cases can hurt the survivors more.

  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    i went through a phase where i always got found first, hours of play a day for months. never changed game play before or after, yes it was annoying but i never dc.

  • bomb1720bomb1720 Member Posts: 428

    when a survivor dc in the beginning, then once a killer gets somebody else on hook, more than likely killer will get the upper hand.

    I just stop playing if its a 3v1, its not fun for anyone and its not really fun just to steamroll 3 survivors who won't be able to do gens.

    Because without dedicated servers they have no way to effectively grant the killer the full bonus effects of a survivor disconnecting.


    I don't really care about pips in a game where I end up at red ranks pretty quickly anyway, so it makes no difference to me other than the fact I don't get a lot of BP. But then neither will the survivors I suppose.
