Unfun & depressing playing as Killer

It seems to have gotten so bad lately I just want to uninstall and never look back. I kept going against red ranks and getting mercilessly trashed with 0-1 kills, gens all being done and egc in an average of 6 minutes and sometimes getting less points than the survivors. Now I'm rank 15 and with the reset still going against pretty strong 5-8 ranks that were probably purple or reds. I stopped using ruin so I can get used to not having it, and never camp or tunnel. I have more fun as survivor but can only play survivor in the late mornings and then it becomes a 15 minute average wait. I play Trapper, Clown, and Wraith.

    Yeah and tbh člen is pure [BAD WORD] now and worst killer, wraith without good perla and addons is a real pain and trapper still needs some buffs and you need some slowdown perks with them as Well.. But i love trapper hra good but needs some little love

    Killers are 3/4ths of a person here.

    It's not just the survivors it's also your choice in killers. If you play killers like clown and Wraith expect a much harder match.

    Why they're doing this to us?? (killers)

    They did that with Nurse.. she was already really hard to master.. and really stressfull to play as..

    now she is even harder.. more stressfull and really frustrasting to play as.

    I was learning well with her.. after a good time practicing i was doing well.. now i dont really want to learn her anymore.

    Survivors needs to fear the killer.. not the oposite..

    will they continue with that? just killing the killers ?

    please devs.. lets make this game great.. listen more to all your players.. not only cryvivors..

    Nurse was easy back then. The change to her basekit was unnecessary but the add-ons werent.

    Im sorry you have such an experience, I've been there too, in this state I would recommend to play survivors, it's quite casual now to play as solo survivor

    It's a tale as old as time.

    I think once I get the sacred Wounded Healer trophy, I'm on a Dead By Detox.

    Funny thing, about that, killers who slug, camp, tunnel ruin the fun for survivors, so why should they care if you had fun? It's a vicious that killer has more control over than the survivors. That being said, they still need to fix match making as it is pure bull when a green killer is up against all red ranks.that needs to be addressed still. When your skill level matches you against those in the same skill range, games tend to go better.

    That was a good toilet time read. I can respect a good Nurse player, I remember it was the first killer I picked starting out because she looked like a creepy nurse from Silent Hill. Only problem was I didn't know how to use the blink power. I tried chasing a Claudette but I never caught up. Then there was a pallet she dropped and I ran around like 20 times trying to catch her. I tried using the blink several times but just tapped the button long enough for nurse to scream and then go into fatigue because I didn't I didn't know you had to charge it. I was like, this is it? This is her power? Is the scream supposed to scare them into quitting? Lol. Then I started playing Trapper because I liked his big menacing presence and he could run faster than nurse and set bear traps.

    Speaking of Clown I finally got my Adept Clown trophy last night but I really had to sweat for it. I used the redheads pinky and was getting lucky hits with the bottles when I would catch a chase. Ended up hooking everyone 3 times and as a rank 13 now against rank 8s and a 14 it felt pretty satisfying. All the survivors except the rank 14 got high 20k blood points, and I actually got a compliment for once from one of the survivors. It's matches like that that keep me hanging on.

    You should try Spirit ... after 3 (maybe 4) games, you will rekt these "purple" people !

    Take a break like I did

    Haven't played for over a week

    It's going to hurt a bit at the start but you'll see you'll become happier and less stressed

    Hell I got more productive when I stopped playing dbd, I still love this game, and the effort the devs puts into art creation but as the game stands in terms of balance is impossible for me to have fun

    You're running Clown and Trapper, strike one.

    You're playing by survivor rules while the devs cater to them, strike two.

    Playing as Hag in low ranks, I have to ease up frequently because the Survivors I'm playing against just aren't very good. This includes the multiple purples/reds that get thrown into the match with me. Happened while i was leveling Freddy, Demogorgon, and the Pig as well. The majority of Survivors I'm seeing there, even with the trash matchmaking, don't have the skills to compete against a decent Killer.

    Within the first minute or two though, I can usually feel the SWF and go all out against them. Those matches I find fun though because it helps me get better at my own game, and I would like to hit Rank 1 this season if I can get enough playtime. You will never get better playing against potatoes though, so the 3/4 man groups I play against, getting rekt frequently, give me a chance to work on rusty skills and better my Killer game.

    That being said, if you're having issues pipping, especially at low ranks, you need to work on the basics and get better at them. This is why I never use Ruin on any Killer, because it supports you heavily at low ranks and doesn't force you to get any better at the basic skills ALL Killers need to survive in the Reds.

    This is something I think will happen frequently now when the nerf goes live. Killers who literally got supported by Ruin through the ranks will drop quickly back into the yellows/greens. Killers who only use it as a tweak to their gameplay will be mostly unaffected. Much the same way Adrenaline, DH, DS, etc etc can carry a Survivor to the red ranks with them learning nothing along the way, Ruin has falsely propped up the Killer side and made it easier to pip and/or get kills.
