I've been getting disconnected from host and they have given me no fix
I've been given no reassurance this issue is being worked on either
All the time. No steps are needed
My brother i play with has almost the same issue he has no penalty though.
Almost everyday we play with him DBD, and he has severe problems with starting a match successfully.
We both are using the same cable internet, we connect each other, looking for a match, no problem to connect lobby with other survivors, everyone is ready... then we see the offerings no problem... and then after it we need to prey it to load. if the loading line stucked for him then usually it crashes without any notification. He relaunch the game, and then after completing the loading where i can see he was disconnected we try to repeat this action many times till it finally loads successfully. Sometimes it may be even second attempt, sometimes it happens not to load even after 5 attempts even if we both reload the game, sometimes even after reloading our both laptops. And rarely it happens when we can play many times and have no such an issue at all for 7 matches in raw.
It is very annoying, time consuming, and even destructing issue which make us not to desire the next attempt.
i am using Windows 10 laptop
He uses Windows 8 laptop.
He also has this problem even if he play alone as a killer or a survivor no matter.
Everytime the same pattern, no issues till the offerings showcase and the loading screen is everytime a lottery for him.
please see this bhvr set the status to acknowledged
I love this game fix it please
I'm the one who has the issues starting games as well. It usually occurs when I've been idle for a couple minutes and the game suddenly disconnects. This is the only game I have connection issues with. Bhvr still hasn't addressed this issue for the longest time.
I say we go on a sort of strike from this game until they fix this DC issue like seriously we should show them they have a player base and it can be taken away if issues don't get fixed like this
You will not ignore this issue bhvr
I'll give my 2 cents on this. When does the disconnect from host happen? Today I've been getting the disconnect from host as killer, but it only happens in the lobby. I'm not sure if it's survivors all leaving? I've rarely had this happen.
Usually when I'm in game I'll be playing and suddenly everything around me will still be moving and I'll be stuck in place then it'll boot me and say me and the killer disconnected and show me the killers load out as if the game was over even tho it says my three buddies are there
My recommendation would be to run winmtr to see where your connection is having trouble. I'm not sure of an IP for dbd servers that we can test but you can always use google or another game. If you're unsure how to do this Blizzard has one on their site you can use. If you have packet loss on the first few hops then you'll know it's on your side. Basically the internet is a highway, your ISP guarantees access to the highway but since different companies own different nodes, there's no guarantee beyond getting you on the highway. There could be a bad node somewhere between you and the dbd servers. If you don't want to go through all the troubleshooting, you could try a gaming VPN, some of them have free trials. I don't use them since it slows your speed overall but the benefit is that the VPN directs the connection between you and the game, so it ignores bad nodes. If a VPN works, then you can likely rule out a problem on your end.
Hoping they acknowledge the issue
Keep having people like it and get it up there
I turned a VPN on and it actually let me play all night but the ping was a bit worse any recommendations to make that better?
@RatMilkOwO That's good news! It sounds like your home network and area is fine, the problem is somewhere between your area and the dbd servers.
As far as lowering your ping with a VPN, there are a few options. You could find a better route with the VPN client. It depends on the VPN company but they sometimes offer custom routes to different nodes. The higher ping is a result of the custom node route from the VPN, but this is also what is allowing you to play. In other words the direct/simple route you would normally take has a faulty node, which DC's you. The VPN avoids this by micro managing which nodes you use, but this increases the travel time from you to the dbd servers which increases your ping.
I would find a VPN that explicitly states they support DbD. This means they have a more efficient route to the servers.
Do you know have any cause I use nordvpn
it disconnected again
This sucks so much I just wanna play
The Christmas event is soon and I might not be able to play
@RatMilkOwO I don't have a good one to recommend sorry. Real quick though, are you on wired or wireless connection? Also what is your internet speed? When you run a pathping or traceroute, what is your packet loss?
Wireless 263 mb per second and idk
They'll probably never acknowledge this issue
bump comment because i'm banned for 6 hours now :) fix your game devs, acknowledge thissssssssssssssss
Everything I've tried hasn't worked
The only solution I found is not opening Discord. Seems like that was the issue for me at least.
I don't have discord open usually
Try running a wired connection. It's pretty common for wireless connections to be unreliable for gaming. Since the game relies on constant updates between you and the other players, if your wireless router loses connection or drops packets. That might be why you're getting dc'd.
Unless these disconnects affect thousands of players, it's unlikely anything will be done for this small amount of users. The internet is known to be unreliable and the problem will likely be blamed on your ISP anyways. Your ISP will blame the game but it doesn't hurt to try and get them to run a test on your line.
First though, for anyone having DC issues, run a wired connection first.
The internet box isn't in my room I don't really have what I need for a wired connection I've seen them try to say that'll help but I've seen people with wired connections still dc every other post on here has been disconnected from host and I never used to get disconnected on a wireless connection it's definitely not that it's something with dbd
And fact is I don't DC from any other game so definitely not that
I see what you're saying but every game has a different tolerance for a bad connection. The purpose of going hard wired is to rule out any possibility, in order to properly troubleshoot. Even if it's just temporary, if you get some 25-50ft cables and just jerry rig it for testing, you can at least rule it out.
Also make sure to run a winmtr/pathping/traceroute to the DbD servers. If there's no IP for the DbD servers available, use another game you play to test it and see where you are dropping packets. If it's on the first couple hops, it's your local network. Since VPN worked for you, it's unlikely to be you, but still good data. Hoping devs will prioritize 20 people DC'ing is not going to work, you need to do as much troubleshooting yourself as you can, and then raise this problem to your ISP so they can fix the nodes if that is the issue.
They said they knew about the issue and are gonna fix it to me and to look out on Twitter but wether or not they just said that to shut me up is a possibility lol
So I used winmtr and it didn't say I had any lost packets but when I entered dbds IP it was also spammed with no response from host
Mine was also there as a connected one I had no loss I just don't know why it was spammed with no response from host
So I used winmtr and it didn't say I had any lost packets but when I entered dbds IP it was also spammed with no response from host things
Update: Now I get DC'd much often. Not opening Discord seems to not be working anymore.
BHVR won't acknowledge it because that would be admitting they screwed up with their update and would have to temporarily remove DC penalties which they don't want to because it is their baby.
just got booted from a game and now im locked out! GREAT GAME
I can't even play cause it's an unsafe juggle on wether or not I get booted
Gonna have my isp test for any faulty nodes if they come up with nothing then idk
They didn't find anything wrong internet isn't it
I might be out of options
Any help bhvr
Sorry I had to take my Final exams and quit gaming for a few weeks.
No response from host is pretty typical for some servers. Thats just a defense mechanism to avoid people pinging intentionally to cause harm to the network.
Did your ISP come out to your house and hook up to your line and run the tests? If not then they might be BS'ing you over the phone. They have a device thats basically a mini computer they bring out with them and hook up to run traceroutes to diff nodes to test the hops.
Did you test winmtr with a stable connection like google.com ? And you said your first few hops were 0% packet loss? If so then yes your internet is good, it's on DbD. The problem is unless more people have the problem, it won't be fixed and even if so, it might not be in their control.
Since nodes can be owned by tons of different companies, for instance when I was constantly getting lag spikes in a game I'd played for years. I looked up the IP and they were owned by a random company in India. I can't call the game company and say hey, fix this. Because they have no control over the internet. No one does really, it's a crazy wild west sort of thing. The best they can do is (maybe?) and I'm reaching out of my ass here. They could blacklist that node from connecting to their network and force a reroute. I don't think this is possible though, since they likely don't direct connect to that node anyways, its a daisy chain of node a,b,c,d,e and then f is DbD servers. Then you have to consider they are renting servers from Company X and have no control over how the network is managed.
I'm not trying to go into detail to show off but just to emphasize how wide the gap is in terms of solutions. It sounded like you got the VPN to work, albeit it was slow. I think this is your easiest solution. Shop around and use those free trials, until you find one with the fastest connection to DbD and just keep hounding your ISP. Ask DbD customer service if there is an IP you can run a traceroute to that won't be kicked back.
This last part is tricky, because (no offense) you sound new to some of this. But you can open ports on your router, FIRST google how to do it safely. This is dangerous because it bypasses the importance of why we use routers, which is to deny external devices to connect to our network. It's literally like forcing open a little gap in your defenses, to allow anyone with an ID of X to enter. This is rarely a solution either, I'm just throwing this out as a hail mary option.
Step 1: Google how to open ports
Step 2: Ask DbD or find a reputable source for which ports DbD uses.
Step 3: Log in to your router via whatever address it comes with. Most are usually a standard IP issued with the router, or a name (ex. "www.asusrouterlogin.com"). That's a made up address but you get the point.
Step 4: Find the settings for Port Forwarding.
Step 5: Make a new rule for the TCP/UDP specific settings for the ports given for DbD.
Step 6: Enter the number given: Such as ports: ~12366 - 12399. Save and your good.
This will rule out DbD getting kicked off your network because your router is (for some reason) blocking DbD. The reason I say this is a hail mary play, is because most modern routers have plug n play ways of managing ports easily for whatever game. It's not common for this to be an issue but if you have old hardware, it might work.
I've been through this a lot and I feel your pain, so I'm trying to help but please do your own research. I'm not a professional.
I am having the exact same problem. I keep getting disconnected from the host, either while loading in or in the middle of a game. I contacted BHVR, did all of their troubleshooting (which was basically just reinstalling the game and other, similar steps). Nothing worked. They basically said, "Sorry, it's probably your system." But this only happened recently, and it doesn't happen with any other game, and my internet is also fine.
