Do you fear players with auric cell only cosmetics?

Like you look at them and think "if they are willing to pay for auric cells only cosmetics they sure must be good"

If I see a huntress with auric cells cosmetics for example I know it's gonna be a though game

    Nah. Because I'm a newbie by veteran standards, and I own a lot of cosmetics already, lol. A prestige 3 killer might be a bit more scary, but I don't usually notice.

    just because they purchased something with real money doesnt mean they are good players.

    when cosmetics freshly released i used to fear those fully stacked with them, as only those who paid real money or put a LOT of time into the game had them. now, not so much. everyone has cosmetics these days.

    its just like legacys - just reversed.

    back in the day everyone had them and they were nothing special. now, suddenly they are very rare and i usually believe a legacy player is going to be the best in the whole team, if i see one. and then i get sad that i lost mine and then i cry. thats 1:1 how it goes. always. no exceptions.

    No, because as someone who owns a lot of auric cells only items (specifically for Nea), I know that we aren't a real threat.

    No, not really. Cosmetics never determine how well someone plays, DBD is far too random for that. If there was some kind of "higher probability of good/tryhard player" the it would probably go like this.

    Basic character outfic - any different random outfit - literally the ugliest cosmetic combination imaginable - P3 any character - P3 claudette - Legacy

    Nah. Ive bought cosmetics for every killer in the game and about half of those im AWFUL with.

  • UnicornUnicorn Member Posts: 1,687

    No. Lol.

    Never knew that this was a thought that crossed a persons mind.

    I don't fear people with auric cell only cosmetics. If anything, I'm more worried about their wallets.

    I love this game, and will gladly pay for DLC, but cosmetics are way too expensive for what they are.

    It some other games it might be that way, but typically I see the shard or event outfit more.

    The ones I fear the most are the players that come in with the default cosmetics. There's no way to judge whether or not they are playing their favorite character, much less their skill level upon first impression.

    For example:

    You see a Huntress with the complete default set cosmetics, and you think: "Must be new to playing Huntress" or "Baby killer, this'll be easy!" whereas when you see one with a full set of cosmetics your opinion changes to: "This killer must play a lot of Huntress, best be cautious".

    That's what makes the default cosmetics so scary... they make you drop your guard on sight, and you are either proven right to assume it, or you get destroyed by them for being foolish enough to assume they'll be easy to deal with. Default cosmetics are basically incognito mode in this game (or "sheep's clothing" if you will), and that's why I'm extra cautious whenever I see them.

    My brother has more auric cell cosmetics than I do, and I have more than five times as many hours in the game as he does. It's not because he's better at the game than I am (though I'd wager he's definitely better at his mains), it's because I'm still in uni and he's 3 years older with a job in IT.

    All auric cell cosmetics means is that someone likes the game, and they have enough disposable income to show it.

    No. It's like seeing survivors and killers with bloody clothes. Doesn't mean they are good, it means they have played a lot, but it's not the same thing.

  • Mat_SellaMat_Sella Member Posts: 1,611

    I don't even pay attention to whether something is Auric or Shard, it's just "do they look like they're taunting me with their clothes, or are they genuinely unable to coordinate a good outfit..."

    I fear Killers with brain cells.

    I fear Survivors without (if I'm playing Survivor and they're on my team).

    All it show is how much a person is willing to support a game.

    No I actually enjoy seeing the outfits people put together. It gives them some personality. Like bunny Feng's and Claudette in her very unique outfits. The best are the Bathrobe Ace's.

  • deadbyhitboxdeadbyhitbox Member Posts: 980

    No. Money doesn't translate to skill in this game.

  • NightOwlNightOwl Member Posts: 5

    No not really, I don't combine auric cells and skill together. But a growling P3 Legacy Billy can be really scary sometimes xD

  • MarcavecuncMarcavecunc Member Posts: 1,203

    I fear bloodied outfit Claudettes Neas and Megs more than survivors with paid outfits.

    Of course you’ll see a default Nea and think “she’s probably new and she’s gonna crouch around the map with Urban Evasion” and then you see a Neon Nea with the pink hair piece and think “she’s probably decent and gonna be a pain in the ass to deal with”.

    But no I don’t fear them because I wear auric cell cosmetics and I know it doesn’t translate to skill in the game. Just means they wanted to look cute dying.

  • DelsKibaraDelsKibara Member Posts: 2,042

    I don't typcially fear players with Cosmetics, unless they're a P3 Claud, then I just get annoyed because they tend to be some of the most immersed Survivors I will face and play with.

  • KakateveKakateve Member Posts: 287

    No. I don’t even know whitch outfits are cell exclusives. I purchase everithing for them over all both characters and cosmetics.

  • OmegaXIIOmegaXII Member Posts: 1,604

    I fear nothing...

    But that thing...

    (Insert picture with 4 P3 claudette with flashlight and burns oni map offering)

    It scares me

    (Obviously this is a joke)

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 10,531

    If I see a Nurse with the iri cell nurse outfit.....it scares me okay

    But if its an auric cell exclusive outfit it doesn't scare me
