Banned from Dead by Daylight Steam hub

Well it finally happened..

The evil hacker got banned from Dead by Daylight Steam community hub, me.

The question I answered

My first reply, which also got me banned

My second reply on the topic, which got deleted because of my previous reply

There is a rule not discuss exploits on the official forums but I don’t see how simply answering this question is bad or even against the rules. The moderators just locked that topic without answering it in any way.

For example if someone would ask “What is speedhack?” would I get banned if I answered that by explaining what it is and how it works?

And how are you supposed to report let alone spot cheating and exploiting if you don’t know what those things are?

This specific exploit isn’t described or documented anywhere and only mentioned by name in the game rules on official forums, https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/19450/game-rules-and-report-system

So only the people that can spot it knows what it is, others might blame their own Internet connection or more likely the game since nothing is their own fault ever. And also was popular go to accusation when someone lost while this game was peer to peer, I myself even got a Steam profile comment where someone accused me of using this exploit when I wasn’t and I wrote a blog post about it, Lag switching accusation with a red ping in DbD, nearly an year ago. Which goes to show that there is some confusion about this which needs to be cleared to avoid reporting when nothing wrong is being done. Even if people report anyway for whatever reason they want and wrongful reports lead to being discarded.

My post did not give explicit instructions how to perform the exploit itself. Even if you would try attempting anything I wrote it would do you more harm than good. Because that’s not how you actually perform the exploit in question, even if it were that doesn’t even work anymore altogether because the game has moved from peer to peer connections to dedicated servers several months ago.

I would never give out instructions how to cheat or exploit in multiplayer games and have worked in volunteer project which once were a big blacklisting plugin to stopping cheaters in Source Engine (Valve, Counter-Strike: Source) games called SteamBans.

So in conclusion don’t go on Dead by Daylight Steam hub or official forums telling people that what cheats are, let them be confused about words they might have heard elsewhere and are looking for more information about what the word means in relation to the game itself. All games have common buzzwords that people like to repeat and abbreviate without explaining others what that word might mean. I personally haven’t for example heard this word being used in other games within the Steam platform and always try to look up the meaning of certain words and phrases used to know what people are talking about. And have done a lot of research for this word in the past so I just tried to help out someone else doing their research into a subject that I have some knowledge about.

This exploit no longer works in the game, not when I get banned and not when this blog post was written. This blog post is for those who are still researching the subject of Dead by Daylight and lag switch or switching and to warn that you will not get an official reply or any reply really if you try to ask this question on the official forums or Steam discussions.

Angry DBD player ragequit and profile comment

Another day and another ragequitter in Dead by Daylight.. However this one posted “kill yourself” to every survivors Steam profile page that they could, one profile was private.

And even during double bloodpoints weekend they ragequit just as the survivors were about to escape by pulling their Internet cable from their PC or otherwise shutdown their network connection.

The match wasn’t overly unfair to the player who got angry in the role of the killer. One of the players, lastik, had Object of Obsession perk and kept running away from the killer around all looping areas of the map. No one blinded the killer and the killer mainly only chased that one player instead of guard the generators from being completed or exit gates from being opened.

Overall this shouldn’t have caused the killer, Glühwürmchen, to react this way. Not to mention this is never OK anywhere, not even on online games where you don’t see your opponents face to face or in general know them in person.

Translation of those profile comments are;

fuck … please die …

stupid cunt. please die, you retard

I wasn’t streaming or recording this game myself so I had to grab recording from lastik’s Twitch to show what happened in this particular game of Dead by Daylight.

Funny dbd profile comment

Umm.. That’s not how Steam works at all.. You have to go to All Recently Played first and then check each game from there. Steam profile only shows total among all games played within a two week period.

Which in reality shows this at the time of the comment..

I am sorry that I haven’t played that much recently No0btellatoast, and also.. I never derank on purpose, in any game including this one. But thank you anyway, I will forever hold your comment on my trophy section of my Steam profile page.

Lag switching accusation with a red ping in DbD

I wonder what ping means..

 

If your ping bar icon is red (250+ ms) that means you will most likely to have moderate to high lags in the game. You are also free to leave the lobby if the ping doesn’t suit you.

He accused me of lag switch but.. If your ping is stable how is it switching?

In Dead by Daylight which has been peer to peer game from release date to somewhere summer 2019 the killer acts as host and can lag on purpose to make a hard time for survivors to navigate the map without running into walls or just limit network connection to the clients to stop them from moving completly.

On top of whining at me for his own laggy connection he ragequit as soon as I downed him for the first time – less than two minutes into the game. Other players had OK ping and didn’t complain, or lag in-game.

No idea why his ping was that high, according to his Steam profile game review he speaks Turkish. Didn’t check his ping or country so can’t be sure. As for my connection during that game I had 50 Mbps upload speed which is more than enough for Turkey clients/survivors connecting to my game server.

Funny -rep comment

Well here we go again, Dead by Daylight player whine comment on my Steam profile.

First, he commented on the wrong profile.. Nearly an hour after we had played together. And then he doesn’t even know about the biggest bug happening right now where lots of people (including me) have had their game freeze during loading screen (more about that here). And the list goes on.. I was the killer in that game, where he was playing in a full SWF team with his mates..

His Steam profile for reference: Juu.

Alcohol and Dead by Daylight doesn’t mix well, remember that kids!

Tried to help him direct his hatred against the intended target but he just deleted my comment and ignored it. Didn’t delete the comment from my profile either.

Dead by Daylight Not Today

How many got this achievement only 6 days after release date?

Was I first?

EDIT: I was only the second to get this achievement according to my research..

The first one was MugaiZM who got it only 10 hours before I did.
