DC, suicide, DC, suicide...

I can't have a normal game through all my teammates DCing or murdering themselves on hook, please make it stop.

    Over half my games today have had a suicide and/or DC (or both).

    Best game design! 5-minute bans and playing with potatos. Try a new game or movies.

    It does, partly. Whenever this "match cancelled" situation happens to me as a Killer, I just want to wrap it up ASAP and get into another game. As a Survivor, you get to choose to go to the next match by killing yourself. As a Killer, you are being "held hostage" until you win your game of cat and mouse. At least 3 times. Up to 9 if survivors just want to get 3 hook stages as you are mentioning.

    Not skilled enough to beat 3 vs 1?? Down the MMR ladder you go.

    But seriously yeah it's frustrating but what can you do besides hope for better matches.

    That's why this game should never remove DC penalty. This community can't handle something like that and not completely abuse it. Heck, I'd abuse it like crazy if I ever go against a Pinhead or Nemesis.

    I only ever suicide when I notice my teammates when I'm on the hook are doing literally nothing. Solo que just sucks sometimes. Edit: Sucks most times

    Pinhead is not so random. People allergic to the lament configuration have always despised him.


    Nemesis is a bit strange. However, he kind of has a tunnel orientated reputation and he invalidates the two things survivors love most... Pallets and windows. So I wouldn't say it is left field.


    Legion is one of the ones I will never understand. They say mending is boring when they created an alternative meta around healing. Like, bro?

    I can't describe how much I despise those who DC or suicide. Especially when everything going ok. I had a lot of 3v1 games where we was about to escape. A lot of games ruined by this hysterical ######### that can't handle being downed or hooked.

    When people do it for no apparent reason or because they're the first to go down, that's annoying as hell.

    However, if someone's getting insidious camped or hit on a hook - can you really blame them? I know people say you should just stay put so that your teammates can push gens, but at the end of the day, nobody owes anyone anything. Time is precious, and if you don't want to spend minutes of your life having a killer camp you on hook and play skill check simulator, that's fair enough in my eyes.

    I must admit I sometimes suicide myself because so many of my games have been catastrophic and I'm no longer in the mood for yet another frustrating one (though I don't DC). One of the last days I was playing for 6-7 hours and escaped only 1-2 times the entire time, and even those games weren't fun because for once I got decent teammates of my level and we completely stomped the killer (one of these escapes, the killer got so little done he got less than 5000 bloodpoints, the other killer got 6000-something).

    The longer I have to play one frustrating match after the other, the more likely it is that I suicide on hook if I notice I am yet again matched up with bad teammates who put up a shitshow while no gens get done.

    Right now I'm on the third game of the day, and every single one had at least one DC at 5 gens. My motivation to play is going rapidly down already now which means the more crap like this I'm getting the sooner I'll run up to the killer and kill myself in the following games if I don't like how my teammates are playing. Right now I'm still/already in the "I don't suicide and do stuff, but if the killer finds me I won't bother running away" mindset. Normally this would take me 10-12 bad games in a row.

    I'll start looking for an SWF this week. Nobody cares about solo players.

    I still say an increase to DC Penalty to 10 minutes or start at 15 mins should slow people from DCing, in my opinion. As for first hooks death? no idea, that's hella annoying as well.

    I have yet encounter a game that has a 5 mins penalty tbh, not to my knowledge thou.
