Do You Miss Anything from Old DbD?

I do. I miss pre-rework Freddy and old survivor animations so much. What about you?

    I miss old Nightmare. He had a high information power that encouraged hit and run. He was actually really complex. People who said he was F tier didn't understand how to play him, imo. I think that in the current boon meta, he actually would've continued to be a viable hit and run killer if you could play him well.

    He did need some buffs, but totally reworking him was a bad call. I still want them to reintroduce his power's concept in a new killer at some point.

    I miss the old ranking/matchmaking system. It was far from perfect, but I prefer it over MMR.

    It’s funny how some of us (myself included) would complain about being a red rank 2 getting matched up with potato greens to vs. a red rank 1 killer, but at least it wasn’t as bad as it is now. MMR is much worse making what I suspect is this but more consistent, along with other headaches to boot.

    I'd love that, but I think BHVR is sick of reworking Nightmare. I know I would be. It's more likely that they'd just want to restart with a clean slate with old Nightmare's power, if they even do want to reintroduce it at all.

    It's hard to remember old DBD things that I really miss, at least for me. What instantly comes to mind is old BNP, insta flashes, insta medkits, old DS, old NOED, infinites, OP mori's, old bloodlust, larger loops and lots of pallets. A weaker trapper and wraith, a very OP nurse. Vacuum pallets + windows, no window blocker. No EGC. Facecamping. The potential for major lag switching. Old forever freddy. How you couldn't heal fully with a common medkit. ETC!

    I DID miss old movement and character models but not anymore - I prefer the new ones. I do miss the old maps somewhat. I miss the old weekly/fortnightly dev streams and the old devs/BHVR employees; Hawkins.

    It's hard to remember the things I miss more than the bad/OP things tbh maybe I'll add more to the list if I remember more things I miss.

    I miss a lot of it. The Older maps, graphics, and animations like grabbing survivors from the hatch mid jump.

    Old map Lighting (the pre-rework realms all had great lighting, the reworked ones all feel a bit samey to be honest), Pre-Overheat Billy, Old survivor animations, and most of all: Old Freddy.

    Old Matchmaking.

    Back then we might have had Rainbow Rank Lobbys. It was chaotic. It was frustrating. But it was also funny as hell.

    No Full Meta Builds every Game. No Genrush every Game. Not the same Killers every Game. And not so much sweating.

    Stupid plays on both Sides. Adrenaline pumping Games. Camping, High Skill and Baby Killers.

    There was so much variety. So many different Games. So many different Playstyles.

    It might have been Overwhelming at first. But some of my best Memories are made back then. The Time when not everything was "the best Strategy against ..." But just dumb ######### that worked 1 in 100 Games.

    That's the dbd i fell in Love with. Thats the DbD i want to play.

    When there was no SBMM in the game but, I do also miss old Spirit and Wraith before he got hit with half a second speed reduction to his uncloak speed.
