Player Scav Names

Recommended Posts

xgent3

When getting killed by a player scav it was very confusing for me when the player's name was not listed. The Scav name was displayed instead and I was incredibly confused for a long time. If we could use player names when playing as a scav, there would be less confusion. This is just a small quality of life suggestion. Perhaps even keep the scav name and have the player name in parentheses. E.g. Anatoly Zaitsev (BoldFacedJoke)

I think its meant to be confusing. Youre not BoldFacedJoke, YOU ARE Anatoly Zaitsev. Anatoly just seems to have a contract from BoldFacedJoke, to get him some stuff.

I like the way it creates this situation where you cant really tell who killed who sometimes. Makes investigating bodies more interesting and you need to deduct and figure out what has happened yourself, the game wont just hand you this information on a silver platter.

Right, i have to say i kinda agree with both sides here. I love playing as a Scav. I love the fact that i can act as the AI and confuse other Scav players. Player Scav's names should be hidden only until the end game screen. The names should be shown only for one simple reason: Scav anonymity is a great way for cheaters to escape the only form of reporting players in this game at the moment.

Lets be clear here, i am new to the game and i only have a limited amount of games behind me. During perhaps 15 games played (Scav games mainly) i have only once encountered a cheater in Factory. I wont go in to details as it is irrelevant in this topic but i can assure you that it was 100% a cheater. I'm not the type of person to just yell cheater every time i get outgunned. That being said the player was a Scav and i know that Dev's require a user name so i straight up deleted my ShadowPlay recording as i figured "What's the point".

Lets also add this: I know that the Dev's have better things to do then to look trough videos of suspected cheaters. And i have to compliment them for making a game where i have only encountered 1 minor bug thus far and its in beta. But in the long run it would be in the developers interest to deal with this issue although it is against their vision.
