The 3.6.0 PTB is now live on Steam! For full details, click here:
We are aware and looking into the issue which caused players to have their rank reset further than intended. If your rank was not reset at all this month, this is a visual bug and closing and re-opening the game should fix it.
We have updated our Forum Rules. Please take a moment to read through them:

Killer is too easy - Ruin change was necessary.

Just a friendly reminder that most red rank matches are by far too easy as killer and the Ruin change is for the better.

    Devs made sure to change the rank reset system to flow low rank survivors into high ranks. All that so people say "see? You didn't need ruin after all!"

    My channel is flooded with games just like these some of which ended in 1 minute or even less than 1 minute but okay.

    Apparently tons of games uploaded throughout the year are all meaningless and killer is stressful and difficult at all times.

    Anyways this thread expresses my opinion. That's what a forum is for. I feel like killer gameplay is a total joke these days. If you and most killers on this forums think otherwise that's totally fine.

    @Yamaoka You are on Xbox correct?

  • Shirtless_MyersShirtless_Myers Member Posts: 82

    It depends entirely on the killer you're playing. Some killers really needed Ruin, while others are over performing and far too easy to get a 4k on. Freddy is an easy example of this.

    Imagine you see here a killer main with 3k hours that dont use ruin but still thinks the Ruin change is awfull and dumb.

    I think he wants to show us how strong leatherface is, maybe he has some potential and is top tier killer???

    You also acknowledge that the video you used for your prime example (I say its your prime example because its the one you showed to the thread as your example) was against a super altruistic team (and a dim one at that, as they ignored the free basement unhook to try and save the second hook).

    threads like these dont prove anything. I could give a sampling of games where I was gen rushed to hell and create a thread doing the same thing, but in opposite.

  • YamaokaYamaoka Member Posts: 1,756

    Yes and no. The forums are usually flooded with people acting like every other game ended in 5 minute because "gen rush" so I wanted to remind people that games end just as quickly in killer's favour and pretty often at that making it seem fairly easy to play killer as opposed to how people talk about killer gameplay most of the time.

    The vast majority seems to say killer gameplay is just stressful and difficult all the time when most games are VERY chill these days. When I started playing killer survivors had pallet vacuums, exhaustion regression while sprinting, more pallets and more windows in general etc. so after all these changes killer gameplay seems fairly easy which is going to change now with the Ruin change.

    I'm looking forward to the change as it will be an actual challenge to get a 4k and not just the "typical outcome of a killer game".

    Again: The clip contains multiple red rank matches in a row and my channel is flooded with matches just like these. Kept posting 1-2 minute 4ks over the course of 2019. Only VERY FEW matches are actually difficult and due to the new rank reset it's even easier to dominate at red ranks.

    I appreciate this greatly. I remember starting as killer in mid 2017, and all the bs that was available back then. I can’t even imagine some of the stuff that was there before that.

    I feel a lot of people try and push some narrative, like gen rushing or camping, but really doesn’t happen often. Most people are just playing for fun and are pretty chill. Bad games happen, but they’re the minority, at least in my experience.

  • YamaokaYamaoka Member Posts: 1,756

    I believe the guy that DC'd was on death hook as they dc'd after getting downed towards mid game. As for Ruin helping mostly against survivors that would have lost anyways: I TOTALLY AGREE. In fact that's what I said numerous times myself. You just notice it too often that people who run around like headless chickens because of Ruin are the same people that go down in seconds.

  • KharKhar Member Posts: 106

    So, because you chain-instadown people with infectious fright, red ranks are too easy for killers and ruin is better off nerfed? I can't really buy that this goes for all red rank killers' experience.

  • YamaokaYamaoka Member Posts: 1,756

    Same haha I remember when I started off as Huntress back in 2017 without Ruin. Some matches just felt hopeless with multiple sprint bursts or dead hards in one chase, all the safe pallets and windows, the old brand new part etc.

    DBD certainly has come a looong way and is actually quite enjoyable at this moment compared to how things were.

    Doesn't really prove anything, so I assume it's a bait thread?
