Venting about the game

I just gotta uninstall this game now in all honesty. I miss being new and the game being hide and seek with a twist. Looping all the time is just straight up boring even if i do it great and so many things are just straight up annoying to deal with. Like, I wish the game tried to stay with the idea they had at first, yea it was a travesty back then but, what if, I always get those 2 words in my head, what if. I just can't patrol the same area and loop the same old loops and gyms for another 200 hours, it's just monotony and just peaks my patience. So, time to wait months and months so I can play Ghostface or something and actually have fun again, I don't even wanna win or anything, I just wish survivors didn't have the chance to be so so aggressive and active all the time and for the killer to be such a pest just lingering around until they find someone. Pretty done with this game unless I make a hide and seek build out the random and use that until I get to rank 8 or 7, I guess this is just a vent post, really just sad that the hopes i used to have were met with doing the same thing over and over expecting new results. I miss the DBD I had in my head, a hide and seek with objectives other than just gens and gates, with more stuff for hiding and not just, running and throwing/breaking pallets. Anyone else feel the same way? Let me know, I wanna see if any other people here feel the same way. I'm not bashing your game BHVR, I think for what it is, you guys have done a good job so far trying to work this game as best you can, I'm just venting my frustrations, getting it out to a community that most likely understands. Don't get me wrong for a while I really REALLY loved this game! Now it's just, it's lost the honeymoon phase.

    Also before comments happen folks, please keep it civil, don't attack BHVR, they get enough as it is, they don't need more blind hate, give them criticism, I know i'm not really doing it here but again, this is a vent post, keep it civil

    Thank you fam, I'm doing my best, outside of this game my mental health really has just been terrible, I've began showing symptoms of psychosis and that's getting in the way of very important things in my life and this game always just giving me no source of happiness really just sucked. I'm planning to get a professional soon though, hopefully things will pick up after that. Thanks for looking out

    As killer I hate hiding survivors. I'd rather chase someone for 5 gens and lose with everyone escape than trying to deal with stealthy survivors.

    Last 2 days i'm playing awful for both sides. I don't know what happened. I just unlearned how to play. But I still like to play for some reason.

    I hate hiding survivors with how current DBD is, but I also hate the looping into exhaustion perks then hearing gens pop left and right and then everything just going down, it's just a really frustrating experience to me, especially if survivors start bodyblocking mid chase just to extend it or do toxic things in general. I'd rather play hide and seek at this rate, it'd be a breath of fresh air rather than the same old same old

    I get tired of getting matched up as a low level killer with clear killer hit squads. it shouldn't matter when you play either role as to how the matches go. and No "It's always like this at this time should never be an excuse for poor gameplay style.

    This, I've had two games where the last two survivors refused to do gens, and they would urban evade with iron will around the entire map together no where near the gens. The maps were one of swamps and midwhich. Awful experience.

    I completely agree. The whole looping thing is just really weird design choice. I've played a fair few asymmetrical multiplayer games and none have had such a weird design of interacting with the killer. Closest I can think of is F13 running from cabin to cabin but even then that wasn't as odd as this game's.

    I remember watching the old trailers and thinking the game was going to be like a life or death hide and seek like you said. Which is certainly what they alluded too. But really it's just run in a small area, drop a pallet on your head, move to the next one, repeat. It's not a terrible design choice but it's definitely a strange one.

    I wish the game was more like the original trailers with a hide and seek design to it mixed with the looping because just looping is very boring. I find it more exciting finding my prey when they're hiding. And hiding from my pursuer, sweating my pants off hoping they don't figure out I'm in the locker right next to them. Feels a lot more tense that way imo.

    Yea and if they went that route I really wished the killers would be focused around which ones can find survivors and which ones can anti loop. I don't hate looping entirely, but the fact that's 80-90% of killer gameplay is very frustrating and monotonous. Like if they made looping like a 1 or 2 loop thing I'd be fine with it if they made hiding better and loops shorter. Trailer DBD had me going, real DBD just has me bored and sad. I want survivors to run more, when a survivor just starts straight up running from me it feels great, when i play survivor occasionally I also just straight up run after a loop or two, it's more exiting to be in a proper chase, not a tie your shoe tutorial portrayed with a legitimate murderer and some random person
