Take a break and then come back.
I feel you dude. I end chases in 16 seconds and gens still pop yet these devs want you to “pReSsUrE GeNs” I doubt MOST of them play their own game. And when they do it’s not high ranks. They don’t understand that gen speeds even by themselves are too quick even without toolboxes. Thankfully the new resident evil coming in a month is releasing their own 4v1 asymmetrical, and I can see a lot of this fan base leaving to their or other games (which has already happened)
Man I wish I knew why I never experience all these issues.
Except matchmaking recently. But that's being fixed.
What rank are you playing at for a 2k hrs player? I don't mean to sound overly rude, but this sounds like someone who has intentionally stayed at low ranks and is now getting a comeuppance. How many real rank 16s have you tortured throughout the years?
Personally, I think they should stop rolling back ranks every... what - month? Two months? Either way I'm tired of going up against Smurfs. Like, if you're new to the game and playing survivor then the killer is usually new too. And new killers ALWAYS camp and tunnel, because that's all they know and it's frustrating going up against them and then next match going up against red rockets that just got back from vacationing outside of the fog so they can come back and sink their toxic little nails into the mid ranks. Just, stop resetting ranks, it doesn't make sense to me.
Player numbers on Steam are still stable last time I checked.
There are no real alternatives seeing as how bad F13 and Last Year turned out to be.
And Resident Evil... I wouldn't put smoke up a game's arse that is not even released yet.
Also the game keeps improving steadily for years now. Yes the matchmaking is [BAD WORD] at the moment. But they are working on it.
The only thing for me is to protect the few gens next to the basement. This alone often guaranteed me at least a 2k in late game if not more. Also there is no toxic playstyle. Anything that helps you win is OK. If survivors flame you, just ignore them and move on. Too many killer players play too passive and nice but then complain they can't win.
Amen. Perfectly summed up the bs that is playing killer in this game. Take away all these goddamn 2nd chances. They already can take 2 hooks and they still get rewarded with ez heals, insanely fast gens, and ridiculous perks plus hatch so they have "hope". Dont even get me started on loops.
That's what I believe up until the recent patch notes, but instead of nerfing survivors they buffed toolboxes, made keeping items easier, and then buffed sabotaging. Now Gen's are done even faster - tested with my friends. In the time it took for Clown to walk across the map - not 2 gen's were done, but 3 were done and the 4th was half done - all because they each went to a different gen with a yellow toolbox Socket Swivel, and Wire Spool. This was on Thompson House. Then i've been testing the new sabotaging update, and I NEVER had this much power as a survivor in matches. I am not kidding. In the PTB of all things, I am forcing Killer's to dc, afk, camp, tunnel, slug, and flame in end game chat just because THEY CAN'T HOOK ANYONE until they eliminate me from the game.
I find it very ridiculous that if I chase a decent survivor for a minute or two a gen gets done. Whenever I play survivor it's way easier and more relaxing then playing as killer.
I feel this pain. I'm Playing as non mobility killers like Plague, Bubba and etc... it's so painful and stressful to play, especially against three+ SWF or longest pallet heaven maps with god loop/window combos...
Also trying to play with thana/dying light combo. 4 injured, 3 stacks early game and gens still "flying"...
Usually Im sympathetic towards posts like these as I know how unbalanced the game is if survivors play optimally, but when you are still yellow rank killer with +2k hours this might actually be one of those cases where "git gud" is in order.
I just got this game a week ago because it looked fun. I figured being the killer was just hard at first due to having to level up. But the more I play I can definitely tell the survivors have a huge advantage. Gens done in 10 sec or less (4 complete within the first 2 minutes of the game), instant sabotage on hooks, the Scooby Doo chases you can't win, 5 sec full healing...it's ridiculous. Plus being ranked 17 or 18 and matched up against 6's and 10's with all purple perks when my killer is at level 10. Makes for a seriously aggravating time. This game is broken and definitely not fun as the killer which should be the best part imo. I'll stick to COD unless this POS makes it out of the trash it's currently in.
At this point the game has become a caricature of bad game design. Like if you wanted to describe a joke asymmetric game where you had a 1v4 game but gave the 4 every advantage, you couldn't do better than dbd.
I quit about 3 weeks ago. The toxicity and stress from playing this game was too much. My mental health has really improved, and I have no desire to return to it.
This is a common trend among (mostly) killer players, but it's something that mainly affects survivors. No reason for someone to see this post and say, "Bye then!" when this impacts us all.
This is one of the worst attempts I’ve seen at trying to get the devs attention to make your side easier with an absolute nonsense retirement bit. What’s even worse, are the people falling for it. “Maybe he took a break”.. lmao what a comical reach. 2-3K hours and facing ranks 15 better than him. Far more likely that he’s full of [BAD WORD] and went way too far exaggerating his story. Seriously, I’m sorry but how stupid can people be?! I guess bias tends to cloud judgement.
Welcome to war kid. Everyone is having a bad time playing killer even the ones who swear up and down they aren't. In a 4v1 match no matter who has the power it's a simple numbers game. More chances of survivors either out playing you or wasting your time to get 5 Gens done and open the gates by your 2-3rd hook. Even if you are some godly killer that usually gets 3-4k per match the survivors (especially red ranks) will harass and berate you to no end and the devs are no help. The ones who know don't care and the ones who care don't know.
So you also have 2-3K hours and are tired of facing survivors 15 ranks above you? If you are agreeing, then i assume it must be true. Otherwise, maybe we should discuss the fact that he’s clearly lying? At least acknowledge it? Either that or he’s a horrendous killer with entitlement issues. Take your pick. It’s one or the other.
You know if you want to call me stupid for taking in account of the matchmaking being [BAD WORD], have the [BAD WORD] balls to tag me next time.
@Mc_Harty If you don’t see the the bs behind a player claiming to have 2-3K hours and wanting to quit due to facing players 15 ranks above them, then yeah, you are stupid. Sorry. Don’t hand me the bit about “maybe they played survivor for 1.9K hours”, this wouldn’t be posted if that were true, THINK. The entire post is nonsense. Only made to fuel killer complaints under the silly guise of “I quit”. As if that makes everyone, including devs, take notice. He didn’t even do it right though, that’s what is weak.
No, you think.
It's entirely possible for someone to take a break for a couple of months and be rank 15 when they come back. Add on top of the matchmaking system CLEARLY NOT WORKING, it's NOT that much of a stretch to believe.
It would be better if all killer just leave the game like you, If survivor mains start playing killer the game will be much more fun.
So someone with 2-3K hours experience, takes a little break, and then wants to quit because they are being matched with survivors they wouldve been (unless they were GOD awful) matched with in all their previous hours of experience? You aren’t thinking this through...AT ALL. If you reached ranked 3 in a game, took a few months off, and came back to face rank 3 opponents in some games (don’t even pretend it’s all)...you would quit? Lol. 99.9% of players would be aware of the fact this was the caliber of opponent they played previously and want to return to that level, which shouldn’t take long. They wouldn’t quit, thats ridiculous. Did this player retain NOTHING in their previous 2-3K hours? They are completely back to rank 20 level apparently. See the gaping hole in the story, man.
you really think survivor mains are just gonna start playing killer?
I would quit because the game has become a [BAD WORD] show, not because of survivors being a higher rank than me.
To the OP - I understand your frustration. I really do. HOWEVER, killer isn't impossible. Or rather, not as impossible as you make it seem. I hate to be this guy, because I usually detest the guy who says this, but there is an element of "git gud" that does apply here. I will confess right now, I didn't read your whole post, because it seems like I've seen it all before.
I get it. Killer can be frustrating, and even when you are better at it, you'll end up still getting smashed upon at times (though, significantly less), but that happens to even the best killer mains. That all being said, even when you do get better, more times than not, you're going to have to sweat to get the job done, which is the main underlying issue. Killer isn't fun for everyone, because most people don't play a video game (especially one like this, which for all intents and purposes is basically a party game) to play super sweaty mcsweatlord.
If you take the time to get better, you'll lose less. You'll never stop losing no matter what, because sometimes a team is just so well coordinated it's crazy (though, seal team 6 coordinated teams aren't that common); but when you start to win against better and better teams, it is EXTREMELY rewarding; and it's a feeling of rewarding and accomplishment that playing survivor (don't @ me, cause I'm right) will never get you. Simply because survivor doesn't take the sheer amount of strategy and good plays that killer does.
Take a break, but don't quit my dude. Get better, and serve up a heaping helping of [BAD WORD] to survivors in the future.
This never ever happens so far on the Switch then again we do not have SWF so far that I know of so most matches the killer wins and rapes everyone. I hope we never get SWF teams because I find it very unfair for the killer. I play both sides so I am no in favor of killer or survivor but when I see a SWF team bullying a killer on youtube it actually makes me mad for the killer.
