DBD has a 60 FPS cap on PC. Anybody with more than that is manually editing the INI. 30 FPS vs 60 FPS isn't that big of a deal. It obviously looks less smooth at 30, but that extra <.02 seconds of reaction time from the extra frames doesn't really do anything in a game like DBD.
Console killers are usually going to be weaker than PC killers, but since the survivors are all comparable that console killer weakness isn't a crossplay problem.
Someone actually still playing PC Nurse lol
I play a lot Xbox Nurse, and they say PC Nurse is even better so..must be very strong? Would be strange if PC killer did not play Nurse.
I think a lot of people stopped playing her after her rework, so you don’t see her AS often anymore. At least that’s what I’ve heard. I only play ps4 & nurses were never too popular on console from what I’ve seen.
In other games the experience for opt-out varies greatly. Some punish you by only allowing you to play against/with other opt-outs which means a very small pool (long queues) as most opt-in some games by default. Some only allow one choice, some allow you to opt-in to cross-console play but not PCs. I wonder which version DBD will have but I'm guessing it will be the all or nothing.
Hopefully the way it works is that if a lobby with opt in players just so happens to not include players on other platforms then opt out players can join it too.
crossplay will not be optional. if you opt-out you will never find a game. i tested it when windows store crossplay came to pc.
Yeah, have fun with forever queues if you opt out of the thing that 99.9% of players will stay opted into. 🤣
It should be the opposite. The default to should be cross play toggled off with players that want cross play to have to opt in. Better yet. No cross play at all. There are far better things to put their resources into.
That sounds like a grand ol’ time 🙄
I didn't say anything about the default. And crossplay helps with que times, which is one of the games more serious issues and thus is worth solving.
There's no way they would do this, because most people just won't know it's there either way -- you have to assume that most players just don't keep up with game news or read those in-client alerts. From an adoption standpoint, it makes way more sense to leverage it as an opt-out system rather than an opt-in system. It's also way way better for the majority of the players, because the upsides of a stronger queue vastly outweigh whatever edge-case downsides a small number of players are going to experience.
No, I've played a lot on both console and PC as both killer and survivor. Survivor experience is the same on both platforms. PC survivors don't perform any better than console survivors, regardless of the fr. FR doesn't really matter when it comes to survivors.
Killers, on the other hand, it does matter for. It's a bit harder to aim on console as a killer and you can get 360'd, especially when the frames drop.
Basically, the survivor experience is the same for both platforms but the killer experience is a bit more difficult (at least for me) on console due to a higher frequency of missed basic attack hits. The end result is that no one is going to tell the difference when crossplay comes, except console survivors who rely too much on abusing frames against console killers and will finally have to go against killers who can hit almost 100% of the time.
So, only console survivors will potentially feel any difference, and that would only be because of laziness on their part.
Crossplay is confirmed, but it needs to be held back until maybe the fifth year anniversary. The game is plagued with so many balance and sound issues as well as fps issues on console (especially PS4), that allowing different platforms to play together would be catastrophic. Lets not forget that Switch is supposed to be thrown into the crossplay fiasco, meaning balance will be out the door.
She's still really strong, but I for one just don't like playing her. I feel like I'm constantly fighting her power, like, you're constantly on cooldown staring at the ground... sometimes it's just nice to be able to hold W.
If I'm crossplaying with a PC player, do they get to talk in postgame chat but I don't?
That’s...a good question 🧐 How would that work? I quite like console having no toxic chat honestly lmao.
