Thunder and playing is not a good idea

Google translated thunder observation map above and video of both sides, survivor and killer below. Lost electricity for 1 second and Internet connection for 5 minutes. Closest thunder struck approximately 1-2 kilometers away from my apartment.

Extreme lag switching in Dead by Daylight

As of now all reports must be submitted using the in-game report form, even if you want to submit screenshot or video evidence.

If you are streaming you can’t go to edit the video or else you would have to “pause” or quit streaming first, your audience will just get bored waiting for you to download archive video or find live recording, edit and upload that before continuing forward from the report screen.

If you aren’t streaming and aren’t recording video from each of your games you must first find the recording and start recording, possibly change settings if you haven’t touched the recorder in ages. That can even be too slow to get any evidence.

And not in all cases you have super fast Internet connection and powerful CPU+GPU to;

  • record screen in acceptable quality
  • edit the video (mostly cut out or speed up irrelevant/boring scenes)
  • upload the video to the Internet within the acceptable speed (less than 1 hour)

Then once you do have some evidence of the incident you must write something to the report which can be harder than it looks like. There is a character limit to it! You can’t explain the full game or incident in some cases if you wish to link to screenshot(s) or video(s), and if you have more than two links it could prove to be impossible to fit all that into the in-game report form.

All this because the reports are easier to use if all of them are in the same place. There used to be a Google web form for this with lots of space to write, guide how to obtain Steam ID and so on but console users can’t use that as efficiently as PC users. The game developers, BHVR, have said they are working on improving the report form back in May 3, 2018 but so far since then I personally haven’t seen anything to change with the in-game report form, other than;

  • not opening the profile page if you click the report button
  • showing you if the report was sent successfully (working icon)
  • not opening the report form twice in a row for one click
  • fixing other errors sending reports

Best DbD -rep so far

Dead by Daylight has monthly online ranking reset 13th day of each month. And this month I have moved into a new apartment, played a lot other games and overall been busy with life, so naturally my online ranking has been low in Dead by Daylight, as has been my time for playing the game. You can also see from the screenshot above that I have only played Dead by Daylight for 10.7 hours past two weeks, my profile page is public so everyone can see it also.

I was rank 13 and ranked up to 12 from that game, survivor ranks were 15, 10, 18 and BullyHunter_69 had 14 so that was fairly balanced.

Normally I would be rank 1 but I am still not so sure about this ranking system, haven’t really had the time to play much to see how it’s like or what rank I would be now with the new ranking system. And no, I do not derank on purpose for easier games, I like the challenge.
