That's it. I quit killer. Uninstalled



  • Hex_OblivionHex_Oblivion Member Posts: 27

    The game gets better in some things, but whenever they “improve” something, something else breaks. They don’t know how to fix things without breaking something else. No game is perfect, but I’ve never played a game that is so infested with bugs. They talk about balance, but seems to me they don’t even know themselves how to balance.

    REALLY?! Playing survivor is a cake walk? You must either be getting players that have a clue or playing with friends on mic. I play solo que on the Switch and am lucky to get a survivor who has 100 hours of game time played. I normally get players who can't do a gen let alone think about even cleansing totems. I have had teams where 3 of us are on a gen and they pop it so much the gen is worst then when they joined me.

    I can play killer and make mistakes and still get at minimum 2 kills if not all. I guess maybe the Switch Version has not caught up to the problems the rest have.

    I know many survivors inclauding me start to play more killer, and it really fun for me and survivors i play against.

  • WylesongWylesong Member Posts: 610

    I agree they should take all the second chance perks from the survivors. I mean after all there is 4 of them and 1 of the killer. DOWN WITH THE SURVIVORS! They should not LIVE ....or have fun. lol I mean it's only fair that killers had Hex Ruin for how long? Then NOED to stop a game dead in its tracks if the game gets to the end and they missed a totem. I mean dang those second chance perks. lol

    They should just take away all perks and let you play the most basic of games. lol jk jk

  • WylesongWylesong Member Posts: 610

    This could happen because the player pool is bad at the time you go to play. I have had games around 3AM on my Nintendo Switch and I was Rank 10 and had a few survivors with me 14 and lower ranks. The killer was rank 4 but I was not to upset because at that time of night I was lucky to even get players. I mean yes the rank system might and probably is broken but you also have to put into account the player base. If they have no one around your rank would you rather not play at all or just try harder. I mean it is suppose to be a game so have fun and if you need a break take a break. I have my problems with the game very much so but I also know it is just a game. I think maybe if they finally did Cross Play the player base would be bigger and getting matched with the right ranks might be easier.

    No one truely quits this game. You'll be back eventually.

  • The rank system is definitely flawed.

    When I'm against similar ranked survivors, I do really well. I've been playing for about three weeks

    I got all the way down to rank 11 last week, then all of a sudden.... Entity displeased or brutal killer yet both scored me a rank loss.

    I'm back to 16 and facing rank 4-6-8 survivors

    Gens are done in five minutes regardless of the fact that I knocked them all down, hooked three out of 4 and killed 2....I still end up losing a rank chip Mark or gaining a zero progress on rank

    I've decided to give up on rank

    Been having a lot more fun just trying to kill the perky bastards.

    Camping used to work when I was new, I have learned that hunting and pressure on the survivors is the most successful strategy.

    I do feel you, the reason i quit playingg killer, and "IF" i play, only survivor with such god toolboxes, and help other Killers to quit also.

    I dont have a single point, i dont agree with you. You spoke out of my heart.

    It can go both ways. I have seen experienced killers with seemingly overpowered perks positively steamroll over survivors. Honestly, if I was that good I’d probably get bored and switch to a different game. When it stops being a challenge for me, I’m gone.

  • ThisGuuy83ThisGuuy83 Member Posts: 1,303

    Okay the fact that you started with "I play on Nintendo Switch" made me ignore the rest of your comment... How bigs the player base there? And how many hrs do you have playing? Yeeeaah, thought so... Come try on ps4 and lemme know all about it.

  • FrankieFrankie Member Posts: 807

    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.

    You will care as your wait times keep increasing!! I’m sure your one of the survivors that come in with your toolboxes and your toxic swf that has memorized every loop and pallet, then exploits the game! There seems to infinite exploits to the game that you and your swf team seem to have. Then complains when your tunneled. I can tell this by your arrogance and the way you respond. Your that player that has ruined the game and the community!!!

  • Gamer29Gamer29 Member Posts: 26

    It also doesn’t help that developer that is hired to balance the game is one of those entitled little survivors!

  • Gamer29Gamer29 Member Posts: 26

    I call BS on your a——! You only play survivor! I love when someone like you responds with “I play killer too lol” I have a platinum in this game and I agree with the OP 100 percent!!! I’m someone that actually does play both sides. You kind of have to be able to do that when earning a platinum. Im sure your next response is “ I have a platinum too”! Lol either way fking learn to lose the killer and not spiral them into your broken loops that you have memorized with every pallet ! Stop exploiting the game!!! Maybe then you wont have longer wait times. It’s survivors like you that have ruined the game and the community. Your responses just shows that!

  • Gamer29Gamer29 Member Posts: 26

    Oh look another entitled survivor! I have a platinum and I did “git Gud” I agree with the OP! Why don’t you do us a favor and stop exploiting the game! Maybe then you won’t have longer wait times!!! Congrats on ruining the game and the community! Btw- git Gud playing survivor and learn how to play how the game was supposed to be played.

    I have recently considered uninstalling the game too.

    Just to be free of all the crappery that comes with DBD.

    I enjoy horror more than I don this actual game, and have spent a great deal of money and time on it, but at the end of the day it's having fun that matters.

  • LetsPlayTogetherLetsPlayTogether Member Posts: 2,117

    Youre so far off with your conclusion, its just showing what I said.

    Actually, the game is very fun. At least to me.

    Dont speak for everyone just because you're sour about something. 🤷‍♀️

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,723

    "Actually the game is very fun." + "At least for me."

    Ok is that the way we do things now? "In my opinion"/"for me"/"I personally"...these should be tagged with any statement which has an opinion expressed but could be, in the eyes of some, seen as fact.

    In that case, here goes:

    The game is not fun. At least for me.

    Oh sorry, nearly forgot:

    Killer is easier now than it was at release. Killers nowadays are so soft.

    Well at least you finally understand that one person doesnt dictate fun for everyone. Those who are having fun, enjoy it. Those who dont should leave and not bring everyone else down. 🤷‍♀️

    I think you ACTUALLY got my point, even if you want to hide it in synicysm and snyde remarks.

    Glad I got through to you though.


  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,723

    "Those who are having fun, enjoy it. Those who dont should leave and not bring everyone else down."


  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,723

    Sure, here's one:

    If people have spent money and supported it for years, they're invested in the game.

    But there could be various issues that have now made the game an experience that is not fun.

    And the same people would like those issues addressed so the game could again be a fun experience.

    They shouldn't be required to leave if they don't enjoy the current state of the game.

    That doesn't prove anything I said wrong. Were not talking about who paid and invested. At all.

    But okay, let me rebuke: if you pay for it, invest in it, and then find it not fun, what are your options?

    A- continue to play, knowing it has faults and you wont have fun, and then complain about it bringing everyone else down.

    B- dont play, either because you're not having fun and dont want to be a spoil sport, or because you're sick of the issues and want them to fix the game.

    Nobody is required to leave, but staying, knowing you're having no fun, and just being unfun to people because of it is childish.

    Both options lead back to: "enjoy it if you want, leave if you dont enjoy it, but dont drag others into it."

    Nice attempt, but it's obvious youre stubbornly sticking to the fact that because you paid for it youre entitled to every change you want, and everyone elses fun can [BAD WORD] off. And I'm not gonna waste time arguing with that.

    Hope you start enjoying it again. Or at the very least stop making everyone else bothered by your bitterness.

    Good luck in the fog!
