This upcoming patch is buffing killers (not much, but its something nonetheless) and pushing the game into a healthier direction. Things take time, so I've got the devs backs.
Glad someone thought of Scooby Doo as well. Because that's exactly what it feels like sometimes.
Too much time.
That's the problem.
Half the stuff that's being fixed now should have started months after the games launched. Now ALL the issues are piling on at once, overwhelming the devs.
This is what happens when you focus on marketing for newer players than try to maintain your current ones.
Listen, mate. I may have sounded like a troll in my first comment but I wasn't trying to. Take a break and come back when you want, if you want. I understand your pain. I hope you decide to come back one day and enjoy killing survivors.
They probably took it with a grain of salt. I mean the game was new and there was [BAD WORD] that they didn't know couod be abused. Now some of them know and I'm happy to see them get to work on it. I figured alot of people would be happy to see good changes start happening.
Better late than never.
Although I still scratch my head when I think about 1.9.2
SWF is not the main culprit. The matchmaking is [BAD WORD]. There is little reason for rank 1s and 2s survivors to play against rank 10 killers. In a normal game that should be considered a fluke or an anomaly. It is the status quo here. Is it even fun for red rank survivors?
SWF just adds an accelerant to the dumpster fire.
"Your survivors ques just got alittle bit longer"
Lol yep. The game will also be dying because you left.
A break is not going to fix anything. If anything it will be worse when he gets back. Out of practice and totally new game to face. With each patch the game changes.
Sabo swf, seal team 6 squads using cheating comms will rule the roost soon. If this is the case i am done as well. I am just waiting it out to see how bad it gets. If sabo becomes meta. I am out.
Killer ques.....any time of the day. INSTANT que....surv que? Be prepared to wait. A long time the higher you go.
I seriously hope they are working on getting bots for you. Cos that is the way this game is headed.
I play killer as well, so no bots needed. It is fine to be frustrated with the game, I have been on both sides. You should absolutely let the devs know when you want to see change, but the OP sounds like they are frazzled 'nervous breakdown' frazzled, and that isn't healthy. I'm not trying to be snobby or sarcastic when I say this game might not be right for them.
Or the other people that have bought this game and no longer play, 5 million copies sold btw, are the sane ones and we are the masochists.
Playing killer...i dont even know where to start. Not going to.
The thing is that far too many people only play this game with the intention of actually bullying the human that plays killer. They have no fear.
They get paired up increasingly with noob killers who have no chance just to ease lobby wait times. The longer this goes on the worse the killer playerbase will become. The survs are already waiting a long time. And to ease the survs suffering so BVHR's bottom line does not get hurt they just shove any old killer in the lobby regardless of skill level.
This has to stop. Really. They are kiling their own game. Quick.
MMR, yeah ok. Prove it. And dont keep rank a secret then.
Understandable. I left for the same reasons. Only reason I came back is the false hope that with toolboxes being nerfed that it's a step towards better gen speeds.
though I do love the line of "tired of these scooby doo loops"
yeah the car loops are the most stupid ones like, how can a [BAD WORD] killer that is faster than a survivor follows them 3 loops IN A CAR, then they drop the pallet and go to another car, AZAROVS is stupid. Tall killers are not tall enough too, survivors can completely see them in loops you CANT EVEN MINDGAME like there are some boxes that huntress hatchtets cant go throught so you have to 110 speed after the survivors without trying to mind game cause they see you, so 3 loops around a box for a pallet or a lucky first hit, repeat it until you get gen rushed for a hook.
These are the kind of posts I hate, from both sides! This community is absolutely the worst. People cry and cry no matter what the devs do. I play both sides equally and don't care whether I "win" or "lose". The only thing I care about is if I had fun. If you're not having fun you're either A. Taking the game WAY too seriously or B. Just not as good as you think you are. Stop thinking you always NEED a 4k. The only time I'm truly upset as a killer is when I don't get 20k+ BP. If you're still playing killer for kills and not BP I don't know what to tell you chief.
At the end of the day crying like this on the forums is ridiculous. If you've been playing as long as you claim, then you would also recognize the good changes the devs have done. I've been playing since there were only 4 killers and I can assure you the game maybe a little wonky now, but the devs always come through. Do you not remember vacuum pallets? Did you forget about sprint burst twice in a chase? Or even worse insta-flashlight?
Give credit where credit is due and stop acting like the devs don't hear us. It may take time but they are also an indie studio. We always seem to forget that. Now if this was EA or Activision handling this game I would be just as sour. But [BAD WORD] guys... Let's all take a Xanax and chill a bit. It's not that serious or that bad.
I don't know how you can say people cry no matter what the devs do, because the devs never buff killer. Or if they do, they take away or add a game changing perk, and give something insignificant back. Lets add a completely broken version of sabo that will be abused, and let trapper reset his traps on the ground to compensate, AND add breakable walls for one map.
I feel ya dude. Its unforgiving. I have a lot of fun with this game sometimes, even if i get my ass handed to me by a team as long as theyre nice i still have fun because this game on a certain level is fantastic. However you run into some people that just ruin it for you. They exist on both sides and they all suck. I try to let them not get to me but that doesn't seem to ever work. Ive had to delete so much hate off of my profile and i have turned off the game and cried multiple times because of these people. The game is broken and it is plain to see which side it favors. I don't know why i always come back but for some reason i do.
If this is truly your last time playing i wish you the best and hope you find another game you love. I know the devs are sometimes so far away from their own game but i know they're trying on this. If you want to try a similar game i hear that "Last Year" is kinda fun and cheap. I hope you come back though because this truthfully could be such a unique game if they only balanced it better. Keep your head up man.
Sorry for the essay right there. Just some stuff i wanted to say. Also for anybody who wants to watch people play this game but with no toxicity go watch "Not Otzdarva" and "Scott Jund" on youtube. They are amazing at this game and amazing people. They always seem to make me feel better after o do poorly in this game. I hope everybody who reads this has a good day!
Then why are you crying about others crying? If others aren't having fun, maybe it could also be because broken things are still broken, chief and not your flawed, binary reasons. Where is this [BAD WORD] about always wanting a 4K? The emblem system should reflect this 2K average the devs speak on but have yet to implement. The devs listen...to survs. When they listen to killers it's because they want to throw them a bone and gloss over the same longstanding issues. Do they act on killer suggestions? Sometimes. But because the game is less broken than it was in the past does not mean that you ignore issues that still plague it today. An indie studio should be more responsive to both sides equally, not less. Unless they want bots. If you don't like posts like this I don't know what to tell you because as long as there's issues, people will speak their minds.
Because I've seen survivor mains cry about things AND I've seen killer mains cry about things. It definitely goes both ways.
Either way, the devs do listen believe it or not. Like I said before, I've been playing a long time and I've seen the change. Just be patient instead of getting all bent out of shape.
Which killer do you main? If you can't play Billy, Nurse, Spirit, Hag then you honestly shouldn't play killer. The Devs made it very clear they prefer survivors.
It's really not that serious. Like I said if you're playing to get your emblems when it's clearly messed up then you're doing it wrong. Stop trying to rank up when the devs themselves said it means nothing. Play the game to have fun and not "win". Because if you're trying to "win" on either side I can almost assure you you're blood pressure will go through the roof. Because on the survivor side you can get hamburgers with eyes as teammates or get tunneled or get camped on hook etc. It goes both ways man. Just play the game for fun and not "wins" and your life will be a lot less stressful.
The worst part about this thread: the devs don't care. Their tunnel vision right now is selling the next killer that survivors can loop to oblivion.
And not over a game like this. It's not about playing for emblems or rank which shouldn't even be in a casual game like people make this game out to be. I'm not doing anything wrong I just want the integrity of what the devs say to match the product. I purposely do not rank up because I want to have fun but that's kind of hard to do when you still get matched up with tryhard groups in a broken rank system who think they're pro gamers because they have a multitude of benefits handed to them by the devs. I've played some of the most toxic games around and this one easily takes the top spot because people are either sore losers or sore winners and feel compelled to message you after the game is over instead of moving on. If you play for fun with new killers not too tier you're told "git gud, GG EZ, you suck..." and when you play to win you get even worse messages (which I actually get amusement from). Yes, you play the game to have fun but unless you prefer mediocrity, you also would like a fair chance at winning, even in an assymetric game. The perception is that killers don't get the same chances awarded to survs, which is pretty easy on their side. Even with potatoes on my team and never playing with friends, as a surv it's way too easy to stomp on killers with no drawback.
Sorry dude. Killer can be frustrating as it gets. You can always just bring trapper and NOED to enjoy some spicy, salty end game chat. It’s so yummy.
I don't believe it. They gut nurse, gut ruin, nerf freddy, nerf spirit, gut oni, gut legion. Matchmaking is "broken" for months, sounds are broken, hag is broken, nurse is broken, grabs are broken, flashlights are broken, and not a fix in sight. DS is bugged, that crap was fixed in a week, same for the basement bug.
They only care about survivors and cosmetics.
… idk if you looked at the current rank reset bug that happen, but currently a rank 1 kilelr can get reset to like rank 17. It happened to me except I was reset back to rank 13.
Also what hes saying is that he is facing basically red rank survivors after being rank reset into rank 17 or something because of the bug.
Thanks for announcing that you can't keep up to date with bugs that happen.
Thats reason why i play the way i do. And i dont give 2 flying rats butt what survivors think on how i play. But yes i feel your pain man.
Thanks for the drivel.
All that you said there, is of no relevance to my post, at all.
1) 3k hours, means he played when rank reset dropped you around 10 places anyway, so your point fails.
2) Again, if Mr whingey pants and his 3k hours is struggling because his "wrong" rank 17 is going against red rank survivors, then your point fails again.
3) It literally takes 5 games to climb 2 ranks, it doesn't take long to get back into rank 1, while being matched against players that would have lower rank than you previously and especially if you're a competent killer. Maybe Mr cry to the forum, is one of those sweaty players that needs 100 games to pop into red, like most players that come here crying about "SuRvIvOr StUfF iS oP" So another fail
4) I am also glad to meet you, his wife? Coming here and talking for him. Be sure to tuck him in with a bed time story about how the wikkle kiwwer got 4k
Thanks for announcing that you can't read or understand context
Just quoting because this guy gets it.
Yea like the sabo change to make it harder to actually get hooks. Sure the breakable walls are coming but with second chance perks after second chance perks, and the changes to the sabo mechanic it's not like it matters.
