Would you prefer devs to fix the game instead of getting a mid chapter or a chapter?

so the current state of the game is not the best so would you guys like to see the devs skip a mid chapter or a chapter just to fix the game itself fix hitboxes, servers, maps, balance and loads of other stuff or not?

vote up as well ;)

    As is my understanding, does jobs are done by different teams so it's irrelevant what we think about it because their independent things. What you are asking is more or less like this:

    Do you prefer the mechanic to fix your car instead of the tire company to release a new tire for it?

    The mechanic can fix your car and the tire company can produce a new type of tire for it at the same time. The difference here is that both teams work for the same company but they have independent tasks. What about asking for behaviour to hire more bug fixing people or improving the bug fix team?

    true i would love if they could improve there team to make the game better

    And its that last line I was intending to type about. I understand different people do different tasks but it seems (my sole opinion) that the cosmetic department must be getting a bit more financial funding because they make more money for BHVR. Even though this is a different team it still leaves a poor taste in your mouth when you have bugs from 3 years ago seemingly being shoved behind six new jean brands for survivors.

    In that case, yes, I think they should improve the bug fixing team and divert more funds into it.

    EDIT: I don't want, however, the creative team to be penalized for it... I also enjoy new content.

    If they SAY they are skipping a chapter to do a project health then no.

    If they actually can and will pull it off then absolutely yes.

    We've already lost our events for bug fixes that never happened (and got a Battle Pass instead). Fool me once!

    I mean, I would be completely fine with them taking a large amount of time to fix issues with the game but also, going like 6 months without any new content would be disappointing and could probably be worse since that’s 6 months without something new to keep people interested in the game. Could go either which way really.

    Every chapter or mid-chapter comes with LOADS of bugfixes or other type of improvements. Read the patch-notes.

    This is a pretty loaded question, considering the devs already do both. To say otherwise is just straight up naive

    Honestly I don't think the two things are mutually exclusive. I doubt them not doing a chapter would really allow for more bugs to be fixed than would be otherwise. Maybe a few, but not enough to be worth it. Part of the problem is that each update brings more bugs with it, so people think bugs are never getting fixed when they actually are, it's just that bugs are basically inevitable. Same thing with balance, everything added to the game affects the balance, and considering it's an asymmetrical game it is especially difficult to balance and people are going to have massively differing opinions on the same things no matter what the devs do.

    Also the addition of new killers (and perks to some degree) is one of the few things that sustains my interest in this game (still waiting for a main-worthy killer to be added, none of the current ones are "up my alley" enough yet unfortunately) so if they skipped a chapter I'd be super bummed because that's one less potential killer that could satisfy my wishes

    I think they have plenty of time to fix the game, the teams have different functions, so no, chapters should remain as scheduled.

    Skip a chapter, we already have too many characters in this game. It won't die if BHVR prioritise bugs and balance over marketing for a couple of more months.

    It's not a case of this or that, increase staff to improve product.

    Chapters bring money in, fixes help prevent players leaving

  • BunnyTheHuttBunnyTheHutt Member Posts: 1,772

    Yes. Even Last Year has Bi weekly updates, and they try and make changes that the community wants. BHVR just releases rushed content for money and only ever fixes the most broken things, so exploits that are found are just left in the game, which is just dumb for a 3 year old game.
