    Ranks literally don't do anything anymore in the new MMR system..

    ..but its still a good designation for how much a player plays DbD. A rank 20-17 player has either 1) Taken a long break and used rank reset to fall that low or 2) are a completely new player who've not managed to get out of the grey ranks yet.

    This is like day 3 of the system supposedly being in place??? I forget what day it actually started.

    But I'm sitting here with 2300+ hours as a rank 2 survivor (Morid out of rank 1, thank god)

    And I just played against a Baby Myers. And that's not an assumption. He was rank 20, had NO perks, and tried to chase me around Ormond in TIER 1, I assumed he had scratched mirror or something but he finally hit tier 2 as we were opening the exit gates. No one got downed. No one got hooked.

    Every survivor was red ranks except for 1 who was in purple. There's no reason any of us should have been playing that killer. He has to have just bought the game to not know how to play Myers correctly.

    I'll take them off your hands, 2 hooks each, and then letting them all go to hopefully not spoil the mmr too quickly while rift challenges disappear like cells in biden's brain.

    From my experience I can understand your position. I'm main killer and I experienced to play vs red ranks a lot when I was rank 12-8 killer. What can I say It's that even if is frustrating you will learn a lot about both micro (looping, chasing) and macro (decision making) game.

    I've had a lot of frustrating moments but then I learned and today I can handle better red ranks, even if they still often wins (I'm actually rank 4 killer).

    And by the way, winning against low ranks survivors is not funny at all.

    So just don't give up and take the loss as an improving moment.

    yea my case happened but my friend is suffering

  • Madahala_Madahala_ Member Posts: 10

    im gonna tell u my ranking plan that would make the game better: 100 rank/xp would be given to players, being bronze medals worth -10 to high ranks and -5 to below 17, silver giving 0 to high ranks and 5 to below 17, and the gold giving 10 and red 20 to whosoever wins it. that way, a full iridescent match would be much more rewarding, and 2 matches at most would mean rank up. i think it would be much more dynamic and fair working alongside the new mmr system

    Oh, I played against you yesterday I think. sorry about that.

  • HumanHuman Member Posts: 40

    Multiple moderators have stated that it's not working and they are fixing it. Soon TM

    It looks like the match was made for a duel between you and the killer.

    They're in uncharted waters. I really wish they would just spend the money to bring specialists in to advise and set it up if possible.

  • MozzieMozzie Member Posts: 618

    Hahaha. I know the feeling. I played a game last night where i kited the killer around the entire map until all the gens were done. Killer didn't even bother to camp and I died on first hook. Nobody came for me. Was incredibly annoying.

    The entire MMR system they tried to build is obviously an out-of-season April Fool's joke.

  • RaSavage42RaSavage42 Member Posts: 3,233

    Nothing is perfect the first go round...

    I hope the Devs are working at it though... Cause I doubt the playerbase can handle much more

    not every single lobby, but most of them are. Take it from somebody that has spent close to an hour too many times quickly browsing profiles dodging lobbies because of that harsh truth. mmr ceilings will only make it worse in time knowing not a single one of them will ever be potato again nor will a rando int he lobby ever be. I guess ina fe wmonths they might do something about swf finally once the kilelrs have had enough time to hit their mmr ceiling, and face the fact their lobbies and experiences are all ######### and had been for a while by then lol. Cause a lot of them will start losing interest. and daily quests aren't gonna make any of them wanna play killer again lol. they'll be sitting on three dailies forever.

    Sometimes "We're working on it" is enough. The lack of solid communication is what's driving a lot of people nuts about this. Not everyone reads the forums, the Q&As, the patch notes, etc. so the information should be in-game. The whole player base should know what's going on, and they don't. That's a big problem.

  • NeaMainNoobNeaMainNoob Member Posts: 21

    OK so What I am definitely not a fan of the MMR system it is absurd for newer players in between R 20 and 15. My sister for example just started playing (R 17) and is pretty good for a newer player but she is facing insanely good players which means she is getting annihilated and barely getting blood points I don't really like this tbh

  • Chaotic_RiddleChaotic_Riddle Member Posts: 1,953

    MandyTalks stated they're looking into everything right now regarding it. We can only hope a fix comes soon, but I'm sorry your sister is having a hard time. I think the best thing is to just hold off on having her play until the MMR is fixed, or seeing if she can play with friends to be able to increase their chances of being able to enjoy the game more.

    Players with 1,000 hours, 4,000 hours, against a killer with 40 hours only on survivor. This new matchmaking system really isn't working at all. I've gotten killers who can't play at all and want to get off because of how poorly matched survivors are with killers.

  • Ghouled_MojoGhouled_Mojo Member Posts: 1,704

    How do disconnects factor in? Anyone said anything about that?

  • 28_stabs28_stabs Member Posts: 1,474

    DBD devs are terrible at balancing their game, because no other dev would allow the very top players (I talk about our red ranks "1") to stomp new players (I talk about 20-15 ranks). We can debate about the middle players - ranks 15-5, ok, but the top should never meet the bottom. Yes, its a free slaughter for red rank veterans. xD

  • vectorvector Member Posts: 177

    i wonder why im rank 1 killer with many many hours dont get such teams against me since the update.

  • TricksTricks Member Posts: 957

    It's behaviours grand plan to alienate their new potential player base, cutting off any new prospective revenue streams to stop any new content development in it's tracks in order to turn existing players away and deter new players from even bothering to buy in to dbd so that we end up with a legendary empty lobby simulator.


  • RaSavage42RaSavage42 Member Posts: 3,233

    To me it seems to be an issue of the newer player being matched with and against players whom have put a lot of time into this game

    If they found a way to make that not happen then we'd be good until those players get used to playing this game (getting perks, Items, Addons and Offerings)

  • Ghouled_MojoGhouled_Mojo Member Posts: 1,704

    I wonder if they could’ve sectioned it off a bit by either using player hours as a base start or even rank as a starting point for the MMR to start its mapping

  • TheForgottenTheForgotten Member Posts: 60

    I honestly just hate this game now. The MMR was being changed when I started and this "fix" has only made it worse. I get matched against all red ranks every game. I'm only a rank 10 killer. I straight up DCed from my last match because they finished 4 gens in under 3 minutes. I didn't even have one hook yet and had only hit one guy. This game is the biggest load of a**t I've ever seen and incredibly biased towards the survivors who, btw, are some of the most toxic pos I've ever seen in a game community. F*** this game. I'm out. It's hot garbage. Let it die.
