Killers are far too weak, can't change my mind

I know I'm going to get flamed for this, but right now it feels like playing the Killer is like saying, "I WANT TO LOSE THE NEXT 40 GAMES IN A ROW!" On loud speaker.

Honestly, that's how it feels at times. Made only worse by SWF players. The teamwork, coordination, everything makes it far too easy for Survivors to dominate.

I know I know, y'all are gonna say: "You suck, get good lolz noob."

But I've been playing since Ghostface was launched, and it's just getting worse and worse to play as a killer. I have to deal with Boons, fast as hell healing, fast as hell gen popping, and keep track of four different survivors who are likely using coms to keep track of me so I don't know theres three on a gen and next thing I know is Pop, Pop, Pop, escape.

Honestly, I can run perks like Corrupt Intervention, Discordance, Ruin, and so on to only slow them down so much. But when you got a team that can bully you so easily, what is the point in trying?

Hell, I popped into a Twitch streamer after a game to tell em they did good, and all I heard was him and his three friends trash talking me left and right saying I need to uninstall. Bro, y'all got decisive strike, borrowed time, two of you had tool boxes with brand new parts, one had a medit and a flash light. Every time I got someone down, all three were body blocking so the third could get a flashlight save.

How are killers supposed to feel strong in this game with this kind of stuff? I'm doing the best I can and it seems like no combination of perks, killer, or map makes it any bit easier.

Im honestly thinking of just dropping the game for good. Every time I start I game all I can think of is, oh great. Here's another SWF trash talking me on Twitch again.

    Addressing the streamers stacks toxicity: We're all in purgatory here, they're just sharing the experience lol.

    But don't worry, I know you say you've played for a long time. But instead of looking at these 4 stacks as toxic, and try and remember every play they make that hurts you. Then you can read it before it happens when a new team tries it. Either way, keep your head up and good luck <3

    There is a killer that is as strong as survivors, beside that, yes.

    Average power of killers are ridiculously lackluster.

    I find that medicine is sometimes needed for killer. Always remember though, a spoonful of sugar hurts when it’s jammed in your eye.

    I'm not gonna lie. I've been getting 3ks and 4ks a lot lately. But that's with using strong killers like Blight and Artist with strong add-ons and meta perks, and the matches are still close. I should be getting 1ks or 2ks in those matches, but survivors want to do dumb stuff like be altruistic when I have NOED, which gives me a 4k.

    Imagine if I played weaker killers like Freddy or Deathslinger. I wouldn't stand a chance. Oh wait, I don't have to imagine because I've lost so many times with them after their nerfs, I no longer want to play them.

    The rarity of unbeatable survivor teams is irrelevant; the problem is that the game's balance allows them to exist.

    Try not to worry so much about what other people are saying about you in game. I remember once I was playing (it was in a SWF but might as well have been solo as I didn’t know they people I was playing with). I saw the killer was a streamer. I went to say GG. On their stream they were saying “let’s check out this TTV. I bet they are talking ######### about me. I love when they do that”. When he saw that no one was talking ######### he actually seemed annoyed. I think some people develop a complexion about it. It seems you are falling into this trap as even in your post you assume people are going to respond to you in a negative way.

    Keep your chin up but at the end of the day if it upsets you too much take a break.

    On a side note, “Nothing can change my mind” is a terrible mindset to have about anything in life.

    Here's the thing the game is sided by experience and skill. If the Killer has more of that then it looks like it's Killer sided. If the Survivors have more of that then it's Survivor sided.

    Now I'm not talking about maps because we know how heavily sided those maps are.

    I played a Survivor game a hour ago where the Killer had Pain Resonance and it was obviously clear after first hook when I jumped off a Gen to set up a rescue when the Gen popped right after I let go. The rest of my team didn't know what they were doing because Gens were getting blocked all game. This was vs a really good Nemi player, he used his zombois as moving radar dishes and used BBQ like a pro able to set up perfect angles on people. Needless to say it was a 4K even though looping him was easy enough just he kept pressure up easily.

    If all three of us had the experience and skills them it would be a different story.

    ehh,i still got a 2k at rpd,against a hacking dwight as hag

    i feel like the game is balanced if you can get a tie against a hacker who doesnt even try to hide it

  • CleviteClevite Member Posts: 4,335

    Idk, but my experience is over a 2k average running only Trapper.

    My current love.

    But ofcourse he suffers verse Swf, and boons as well. The truth is this game favors experience. But if you are not having fun, perhaps gaining that experience is not worth it for you.

  • NoOneKnowsNovaNoOneKnowsNova Member Posts: 2,455

    I will be honest, from my experience this sounds like a you problem.

    Came back a few days ago to the game and in about 15-20 no slowdown perk Billy matches I'm still yet to get a 0k/1k.

  • RaSavage42RaSavage42 Member Posts: 4,324

    Yea Players have to inflate their egos... it's sad but true

    And be on display for anyone to watch

    But like others have said... don't let that bother you

  • TiufalTiufal Member Posts: 1,252

    The only thing i hear on loud speaker is killer players crying their ass off on this forum. Never seen any playerbase being so whiny while performance its all about their own skill level.

  • ZachcjjjZachcjjj Member Posts: 479

    why even post a discussion thing if your mind cant be changed seems pretty much like a waste of time

  • PredatedPredated Member Posts: 2,727

    I mean, it depends on what tier survivor you face as what tier killer. If you play a D tier killer and face B tier survivors and consistently winning, you're really good with that D tier killer.

    Its not that killers are too weak, it's that people expect a different balance. You should not be facing survivors who eat Plague for breakfast when you're playing Ghostface. They are a different tier. If you can keep up with A tier survivors with a C tier killer, that means you are really good at that killer.

  • Yep, couldn’t agree more.

    The game is in a seriously bad state. I mean it’s always been bad, but we’ve sunk into an even newer, more disgusting, revolting badness of bad.

    Like layers of an onion falling away as the core becomes more exposed. It stinks big time and causes further tears to flow.

    The developers need to sink their hands deep into the mess and muck, destroy suffocating game design clogs, and finally fix this f*ck!

  • fulltononfulltonon Member Posts: 4,397

    There is no comparable skill between killers and survivors.

  • VikingDragonXiiVikingDragonXii Member Posts: 2,407

    There is actually.

    Mindgame Skill vs Mindgame Skill

    Running Loops Vs Chasing Loops

    Heck even Skills able to play certain Killers, I play alot of Vommy Mommy so my skills playing as her allows me to have skills to handle her so that alone is good comparable skill between Survivors and Killers. Just because most Survivors just do a hold W or M1 meta that didn't mean they don't have skills or you can compare both sides skills.

    Just like my example I used of the Nemi match, he had more skill and knowledge on how to chase through loops and not get fooled by 360 spins, which I have good skills using just not a expert at it but enough to get away from the Killer or keep them busy for a few Gens.

  • fulltononfulltonon Member Posts: 4,397

    Skill caps of those things aren't high, just play safe and that's it.

  • VlarianVlarian Member Posts: 119

    It's impossible to win a game casually with any killer other than Nurse, Blight or Spirit with disgusting add ons. Any other killer needs the strongest most META perks money can buy to even stand a chance against super passive "second chance" survivor perks.

  • SluzzySluzzy Member Posts: 3,131

    All killers are strong, some are too strong in fact. Just because one or more escaped doesn't mean "Killers are far too weak". You can't win every game. An organized SWF will always be harder to beat.

  • chimera3chimera3 Member Posts: 52

    This post SCREAMS entitled survivor main. If you think Clown is strong.....I don't even know what to tell you. The issue is swfs are too strong and killers like Clown at high MMR are abhorrent to play as.

  • ZozzyZozzy Member Posts: 4,759

    So for you to think the game is fine you need to play a killer that just bypasses everything or one that exploits to bypass everything.

    My build with Blight - Perks: Brutal Strength, Fire-up, BBQ and Chill, Bamboozle . Add-ons - Adrenaline Vial, Blighted Crow

    90 percent of my games are at least a 3k. I also do not tunnel anyone out of the game.

    Blight is absolutely the strongest killer in DBD, a bit stronger than nurse and a lot stronger than spirit. If you're playing Blight with strong perks and add-ons, and you're not performing well, well I hate to break it to you, but you have not mastered Blight. But to be fair, it's hard to be really good at Blight. But it's not hard to be above average with Blight (when compared to other killers) Because you can use his mobility and then play him like an M1 killer.

    I really really feel like Blight should be a 4.4 m/s killer. He'd still be insanely strong, but he would be weaker for people who can't use his power to land hits. Bad Blight players who can't rush are doing well if they understand the basics of M1 gameplay, which should not be the case for a killer with as strong a power as Blight.

    if you want to have fun you can't play half the game. GREAT

    "Everything is far too easy for survivors to dominate"

    So do you not think there is anything the killer can do to dominate? Because that is so incorrect.

    Your post honestly sounds like a lot of complaining because you had bad matches. You provide 0 evidence of what YOU yourself did, to even begin to give you proper feedback. Simply saying "Killers are weak because survivors bring these things" is not enough.

    I am totally sure scooching up to an object and looking down to remove collision was heavily discussed during Blights development.

  • chimera3chimera3 Member Posts: 52

    My mistake, thought you were referring to Nurses ability to go through walls. Please learn how to put detail into comments
