Lol, maybe? 😄 My MMRs on my killers are definitely a spread, I’m a really lousy shot with Twins and Huntress and Trickster and such for instance but I’m a lot better with the basic attack killers. And as much as I like the game I only play a few matches a night so my technical skills at looping are quite as honed as you guys with thousands and thousands of hours. I have my moments though I think!
That does make sense.
Killers didn't "calm down" every time survivors got something useful. Circle of Healing suffered 3 knee-jerk reactions by the devs due to killers moaning and crying. When killers can't 4K with ease, is the reason survivor state is at the worst.
Concerning the patch, this is definitely the worst state of the game. And BHVR is silent because killers are all happy.
The game is so unbalanced right now, it is a miracle any survivor is playing.
It's not like playing Street Fighter or something you can still eat nachos and chill
You're basically describing my experience. The games you posted back in this thread was the story of yesterday evening for me. I don't understand how my games are completely miserable, camping and tunneling through the roof, bad manners (basement camping and being hit on the hook at 5 gens) are at an all time high for me, yet I read here on the forums things like; "I'm having so much fun! My Solo Q team mates are competent, I rarely get tunneled! My nerfed perks are working amazingly!".
Why are our experiences like night and day compared to others? I'm not saying they're fibbing or anything, but it's just not what's happening on my end. I honestly don't think I can play with Solo Q in this state anymore. I guess I'll wait for awhile and see if anything gets any better.
I was watching Ohmwrecker stream (he usually plays Solo Q) and he was having the same Clown world experience. So I know I'm not just crazy or that unlucky.
Jan 25, 2002 - Boil Over was buffed to have a flat 25% wiggle increase from falling and 100% strafe intensity
Feb 9, 2002 (Just 15 days) - Boil Over was nerfed because of the outcry from killers on these forums
It's 10 days and counting after the game was made almost unplayable for solo-queue players...
Anyone else feel like there's a double-standard here?
The devs said that they know about the Sadako issues, and normally it would have been her time to get some kind of update during this midchapter patch, but they apologized for not being able to squeeze her in this time, because of the immense thing that was this patch. It is a bit sad, as I really like Sasako and want her to be a cool and viable killer, but yeah, I think everyone can see that this patch here was special, was really big and was probably more important.
It has been the same to me and I don't understand why. They should at leats have increased the hook timer with gens are longer and someone being camped seens to be a thing on every match now.
Majority of survivors can't even play, yet this needs careful watching for some reason.
No because BHVR doesn't make decisions based purely on the forums as we're a small minority of the larger community and this is a strawman argument.
No, because BHVR doesn't make decisions based purely on the forums.... Let me point out something that was changed because of forum outcry.

I'd argue Boil Over was changed because it was objectively a problem and was being used to force unwinnable situations by survivors who burned RPD offerings, personally.
You have no proof that's why they made the change they did hence why your argument is a strawman you're attributing something to the forums to fit your argument.
Lol who the hell tries to eat nachos while playing street fighter? Not only would your gamepad get disgusting but you'd have sweats hitting like 30 hit combos while you're playing with one hand , it kinda made me chuckle though not gonna lie and I get what you were saying
You have to buy a bunch of skins to be good at the game now.
Firstly, the matchmaking system has been crap since day 1. It's never worked properly, and they have never addressed or fixed it. For some reason after this patch, the SBMM is even worse (on my end anyways, and I've seen loads of people saying the same thing).
I believe Devs tried the hook timer idea before but it was abused by SWF's (or something like that). The problem is that BHVR constantly "balances" the game between Killers and SWF. Playing against a 3 or 4 man SWF is vastly different than against Solos, and a lot of the "second chance perks" were established to help Solo Q out. Like Decisive Strike. Solo's cannot coordinate well as a team. So the game for Solo's is partially one of lone survival. You can't depend on your team mates. You don't know what they're doing. You don't know if they're being efficient, or wasting time and you definitely can't tell them how to play (and they should be able to play how they want within the rules). But that sort of precariousness can make for a very miserable match. Camping and tunneling has always been disproportionately effective against Solo Q. It can almost guarantee a 4k. It shouldn't be that way, but Devs have no interest in addressing it. So in came perks like Decisive Strike. Even Dead Hard (never ran it, but it's purpose was to extend a chase). Is the Killer tunneling you off the hook? Well it will be more difficult for them and at least you can waste some of their time so your unknown team mates can get some work done. Tunneling will come at a cost.
So I think they "balanced" for the top percent of hardcore players and SWF's, because SWF did have an undeniable advantage over Killers. But the majority (casual Solo's), were just an afterthought. We're filler material to BHVR LOL.
We all know what needs to happen; they need to give Solos some basekit info. It's a no-brainer but BHVR for whatever reason refuses to do it.
The patch is good for the game, get used to it.
That opinion is far away from reality.
Calling this patch a disaster based on what? It’s been out for 10 days...
so many cry threads, the first one started literally a few hours after it went live...
it’s been said so many times, the meta need to settle as well as the mmr... it’s way too early to call for big balance changes.
sure there are things that needs to be looked at, tunnel and camping might be decreasing with giving the bp bonus back to bbq.
my time with survivor have been better after the patch, now you have to work for your win, it’s not giving to you. Killers can run many different builds now, which is also a good thing.
im very pleased with the patch so far.
Can't believe Boil Over was nerfed before I was born.
Disagree. The developers make a bunch of knee-jerk reactions. Look no further than the slew of mediocre, non-meta perks that received nerfs for no apparent reason.
Honestly for me I don't mind the changes this patch, I just don't understand the reasoning behind making perks have 0.5s windows to use them when the game is so laggy.
I'd enjoy this game a lot more if the servers were a bit better honestly.
You should become a comedian.
Now Im feeling old
From what I remember they only tried pausing the hook timer when the killer was camping but it was pretty easy to abuse. Overall I'm pretty okay with the changes on this patch, my only problem is with the excessive tunneling and camping since the patch dropped, If they made these strategies non viable I would be happy.
Forums reality, maybe.
But its not. I´ve seen many experienced survivors that play perfectly fine and don´t try to ruin the game of everyone else by suiciding on the first hook.
As it was already said, this leads absolutely nowhere. So instead of throwing a tantrum, how bout trying to adapt? There won´t be a backroll of the patch, so suiciding brings you nothing.
I played both sides when I was playing and currently I'm enjoying and having fun playing a competitive game that is actually fair. You probably want to respond to whoever is saying that survivors are suiciding-on-hook and DCing, since that's not happening. Let me see if I can find the person that said survivors are collectively suiciding-on-hook and DCing.
I found it for you, you should talk to this guy, because he believes that survivors are collectively suiciding-on-hook and DCing. Since they're not doing that, you should correct him.
The reality of people with neutral gamesense.
