(PLEASE READ) Making DBD More Fun for Everyone
Hi, you're probably reading this and thinking I'm just some random DBD player. And you're definitely right. But I am a random player who has a lot of time into this game. 1000+ hours and consistent rank 1 killer and survivor. As I continue to play this game, I constantly feel like the game can be much more fun on both sides given balance and gameplay changes that would help both sides feel more fair. I understand balancing the game for the top end of the game is not good, but I also understand that balancing for rank 20s is also not good. At the optimized end of the game, only the spirit and nurse consistently win games. At the low ranks of the game, the nurses and spirits are extremely bad typically, in comparison to the overall potential. What the game should be balanced around are the middling people, while still accounting for potential craziness at the lowest and highest ends of the game. I think DBD overall, does alright at this, however, there are numerous issues that should be addressed. I hope that this document outlines and gives potential (and I hope good) solutions to the majority of the issues given. I will address Balance, UI, Bloodpoints, etc. in this post. Remember, time is the most valuable resource in DBD. (Be warned: I am really blunt)
This post would have been far too long for the forums, so the documentt below is public view. I thank you for reading the document in advance, and I hope to spark discussion among the community with the numerous changes proposed. In turn, hopefully, the developers will see this and potentially utilize some (or all) ideas listed. Thanks again :D
