The 3.6.0 PTB is now live on Steam! For full details, click here:
We are aware and looking into the issue which caused players to have their rank reset further than intended. If your rank was not reset at all this month, this is a visual bug and closing and re-opening the game should fix it.
We have updated our Forum Rules. Please take a moment to read through them:

I’m tired of trying to kill higher rank survivors then me

I keep getting purple rank survivors and red ranks while I’m in green ranks they aren’t survive with friends either I was getting red ranks to start out with before I hit green ranks

    You've got to get better, watch some streamers if it helps. Otherwise, it will happen. Just try to adapt to their level.

  • Foxfire47Foxfire47 Member Posts: 111

    I'm in yellow ranks and have gotten purple and red. Believe me, it's a pain but this is a good opportunity to learn from these survivors and adapt to them. If you want to climb up in ranks, you're going to have to get used to the survivors and learn from them. Learn from in game experiences or even watch streamers/youtubers.

    Again, it's frustrating and a pain in the butt but it is useful in becoming a better killer. It will be satisfying later on that you can take on higher ranks than you with ease.

    I shouldn’t have to play that rank when my killer isn’t that rank

  • CloakedDagger1CloakedDagger1 Member Posts: 181

    I love the game but I’m casual player because I play other games too but they need to fix their game for sure because as a casual player I play the game a lot sometimes then stop playing rank rest happens go back to playing it’s a little here and there then rank reset so it’s frustrating

    After I got my rank 1 achivement as killer, I stopped trying to kill the optimal survivors. Killing them just isnt fun and aint worth the sweat in my opinion. I let them finish their gens in peace, open the gate for them, and move on to the next match.

    I've stopped trying to rank up. Now I'm just playing for memes and for practice. Why rank up to red when I'm already facing them anyway?

    Just play for any reason besides rank

  • CloakedDagger1CloakedDagger1 Member Posts: 181

    Ehh I get that it’s not me ranking up that I’m worried about though it’s the unfun games because of me constantly getting people who shouldn’t be ranked with me 🤷🏻‍♀️

    That's the ranking system for you sadly

  • MisterCremasterMisterCremaster Member Posts: 581

    Rank 12 vs 4 rank 2 just now ... There must just be no killer players on PS4 and I can understand why. This isn't fun. I'm not a masochist, I have other games to play.

    Haha this.

    I only play for BP to prestige other characters because attempting to play a killer with a level 1 yellow perk at green rank is brutal.

    You are absolutely correct.

    When I bought this game I never knew anything about it. Dived right in. That’s how any game should be for the most part (with the exceptions like Darkest Dungeon).

    I only watched a few videos just to get an idea on how to handle loops and such, which I didn’t even know was the point of the game. I just thought you chased people. Didn’t even know what “tunneling” was.

    But anyway back on point: I can somewhat understand facing better people , but the problem in this game is facing 4 better people at the same time.

    Take any other multiplayer game or even a sport and most of those games you have pros and rookies playing together on the same team.

    That is how every match should be here especially because it’s 4 vs 1.

    It is not fair at all for 1 person to go up against 4 that are all equally or better skilled. Not to mention all the issues with the game (large maps for example) which only compound the issue.

    So yes and no. But more no (meaning it’s more unfair and unbalanced than a true challenge on an even playing field).

    Same with me. I got into this game because Ohmwreckers video somehow got into my YouTube feed, and I don't even watch people play games. I checked it out and it was entertaining. I assumed all matches are like his videos, never knew about tunneling, camping or looping. I just saw him trying to run away from the scary killer.

    He isn't even that great at looping, but when he is matched with equal skill killers, it looks fun and that's what I thought this game is.

    I think my problem is that I spent a lot of time on this game since I started and don't just want to quit. But the more I look at DbD videos and the more I see its history and how the devs let some crazy crap into the game, the more I think that I need to try new pastures in the world of gaming.

    Didnt know that. Wish it was that way for PC. Cause high rank on PC just sucks as killer thus getting the achievement for it.

  • GamingHulk123GamingHulk123 Member Posts: 145

    But you can't trust that the devs, will do everything right. Let alone quickly fix this problem. To be honesty, I learned how to play killer this way. I was always a killer main, and I had to learn how to deal with certain survivors. I see it as; you learn more ways to cope with toxic survivors, or wait for the devs to fix their problems. With all due respect of course.

  • AvisDeeneAvisDeene Member Posts: 1,383

    Honestly, the problem with game developers and gamers is that gamers are addicted to the games and the developers know this. If gamers would protest by not playing then that would light a fire under developer butts. Instead, players just suffer until they can't take it anymore.

  • GamingHulk123GamingHulk123 Member Posts: 145

    I'm just saying, The Devs know what needs to be fixed. Meanwhile, we should enjoy the game because of how unique it is. Everyone is always talking about the game problems, instead of enjoy what make us keep coming back for more. All I see in discussions are complaints about the game. No one talks about the great things of this game. Its basically, "I got tunneled and camped, the devs need to remove this, they are not doing their job". Give them some time and please release the pressure on their shoulders. With all due respect of course.

  • AvisDeeneAvisDeene Member Posts: 1,383

    They had more than enough time to fix matchmaking. People have been complaining about it for months, at least 8 months now actually. Matchmaking is not hard, pair up people of the same or plus/minus 1/2 ranks.

    People don't play games because they're unique, they play them because they're fun to play. The uniqueness can make it fun, but only for so long. There will always be complaints, Tunneling/Camping/NoEd will always be hated and cried about. Devs know to ignore those, and most players do as well. They deserve all the pressure they get. It is their fault that their is a lack of Killers and why lobby times is long for many people.

    Make killers stressful and unenjoyable, lose players. Hence why they refuse to fix matchmaking, because any appropriate fix would reveal how low the number of Killers truly is and people in higher ranks would be waiting forever. So now, you're going to get hidden ranks so they can bandaid it. Just recently they it was leaked that they were going to hide ranks in the tally screen but had it pulled because of the leak. Now they're just going to remove them completely.

    Make the game fun, more will come, more will stay. The worse it is, the more players should leave.

    So, I logged into my fiance's steam account. She's basically all around rank 20 in everything. I went as a perkless Wraith and got to rank 10 (before went back to my account to play Doc and Ghostface) in like 3 hours...from rank 16 to 10, I faced purple and red rank survivors.

    Want to know what's funny? They played no differently than the rank 15+ survivors I was facing. It's so easy to rank up as survivor, potatoes exist at all ranks.

  • SpannungsstoßSpannungsstoß Member Posts: 977

    The best you can do at this point is wait, devs have announced a "fix"

  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 2,611

    Same for console, except a lot less killers on console, so if you’re a high rank survivor, you’ll be waiting 20+ minutes for a game just for them to dodge you (if you piss them off, they can recognize you since there are so few players on console in general).
