    youll get better over time. rank means nothing anymore. just focus on improving your game play rather be mad about it.

    look at me. im consistently rank 1 so whenever i want to try a new killer or practice a killer im not good with i have a chance to go against really strong survivors who expect me to play well cause im also rank 1. you just gotta do it.

    I stopped playing. For a while i was losing rank on purpose as killer, but now i dont care anymore. I moved onto other games.

    I agree the basekit was too much that was honestly fine as is. Sad part is the addons that needed to be changed were alongside ones that were useless. Now most of her addons are worse as well with even less being useful.

    I played 3 rounds as killer last night and it wasn't fun at all. If I got a survivor they would DC because they were a poor sport. If I was about to exit through the gate they would DC because they got beat. The developers don't care anymore because they got your money. At least that's how I feel anymore.

    Her add-ons now I disagree with because some of them are just down right stupid

    A bit over 600 hours in this game atm, idk if I have more than 100 hours as a killer...It's frustrating to the point you're getting absolutely sick of it. I play killer only for rituals and rarely to see how bad I am destroyed.

    If you want to play this game as a killer, I definitely do not recommend it, play survivor or leave, but don't play killer, you'll get bullied in the worst possible way. And with the Ruin nerf knocking on the door we may see killer playerbase drop hard, which would shake the entire game...

    I just started Sea of Thieves, the ultimate game pass was on sale and the game seemed tempting. I havent opened DBD is 12 days, so you can refresh your mind with other games

    you aren't playing as a society you are playing as a role in a stupid game, if you don't like it quit and stop making a scene

    Truth is the devs DON'T care about killers, just quit now before you get addicted like me

    Nurse wasn't easy... when u face potato surv ok but against good ones it was pretty hard to catch them. specially for a new nurse.

    and yeah her basekit was strong but not too strong.. the problem was the addons.

    Find a small game where you can pause at anytime.

    Switch to survivor and start searching for a lobby.

    Play the other game while you wait for a match.

    Easy games from now on.

    I played 11 games last night as a rank 10. All of them were against red ranks. I guess the pool of players is even smaller on ps4 or something. Because watching streamers you see red rank potatoes. I get none of those. I am playing against Survivor Team Six. I had a game last night with all gens done in 4:30. Quad escape. I want to play killer but unless I derank down to 15, I am still gonna get nothing but red rank SWF’s. My one game where I up-pipped last night was against an uncoordinated team of solos. At least on PC it seems there are still solo queue games and more potato-y survivors. On PS4, it feels like everyone is playing like their life depends on it. “I’m on t-walls. Get the gen done, I’m bringing him to you take chase. RED TEAM GO!! Now we sit at the exit to make sure he sees us bag. Mission success team. Well done!” Zero fun to play killer against survivors auditioning for the imaginary DBD pro-league.

    I do understand you. I feel the same. When I started this game on PS4 6 months ago, I really wanted to improve myself at being a decent killer over time. Step by step.

    I watched a lot of streamers (I still do), tried to understand this game, played quite a lot and so on.

    I've seen improvements. I was really enjoying this game. I've always been a fair player and played all killers, I never used a single mori the past 6 months or iridescent add-ons.

    I was often frustrated oc but I managed to find fun in all this. I was a purple ranked killer. Now, for the past few weeks, my experience as killer is awful. I feel helpless so many times. I keep facing red ranks players (I'm rank 7-9) and almost every game is a mess. DS, BT, DH, adrenaline, keys, tea-bags.

    This afternoon, I played again thinking "okay, matchmaking is broken. You won't be much of a threat to these survivors but at least, you will learn to be better". You know what? I had a dreadful afternoon and I decided to stop this game once and for all. I wasn't mad at the survivors, I was mad at this game. It took me 6 months to realize that this game (and particularly on console) is a complete mess. Things that should have been addressed earlier are here for way too long. I can't learn such a game.

    Now they remove ruin. Good. Survivors will get used at escaping more often. More and more survivors will looked down on killers. No need to fear them. Just 360 your way out of here. Gen rush. BT and DS will do the rest. Is that a good point for this game? I don't think so. Ruin needed to be changed. But not now with all the flaws.

    That is if you can change the resolution or your font sizing so that when you play your mouse actually registers attacks. I can't tell you how many times I try to attack a fleeing target, and my character just contemplates life because my mouse is secretly clicking on stuff behind the game. It doesn't even play the game in a legitimate "full screen" yes one can argue that filling the border all the way is "full screen" but it's still a window, not a full screen game. When the game is your primary focus and the developers can't get that right, it's extremely infuriating on PC versus console.


    Many of you (mostly PC players) are more than likely already thinking in the back of your mind; "Just go into the files like everyone else who looked this up on the internet and change them to fit your screen completely or whatever it is you have to do. Frankly for you and myself, I can't do that because the version I own is the Microsoft store version, not Steam. So I cannot get into the files because of how Microsoft doesn't want us all modifying our files (Usually I'm not against this kind of ethic, but in a time where developers can't even get the right specs for a full screen... It's kind of a drag that I can't modify the stuff to play better)


    In conclusion to my argument... Your answer to his/hers was more so just another struggle they will have to deal with. And believe me I know this... I have been a Nurse main for a good fraction of my time and even though I have been practicing other killers (To my surprise I'm pretty damn good at a majority of them) it's just not enough if your damn mouse buttons don't register because the game's "Fix my fullscreen bulls***" setting isn't there"


    As most of us do, I very much enjoy this game... But like a fine red wine, you can't sit back and enjoy it if the damn corkscrew doesn't work. Then your just left thirsty and wishing it was liquor lol, I hope the developers work on the many issues that they have. I'm sure they are and we need only be patient... But patience is a virtue that cannot be bought for too long and when you can't even do the very one thing a game is meant for half the basis (attacking of course) then what is the point of anything? (I would like to say that this is not me attacking anyone or the developers themselves, at least not directly lol. Everything has a flaw and as a community it's our job to voice them)

    Killers are meant to be frustrating, what kind of madman plays video games for fun? /s
