I have done vanilla legion for a few weeks before.
1) This game is not COD. You really REALLY do not need the precision of a mouse to be effective with killers, except Huntress and Nurse. Additionally, WASD has nothing on a stick. I can moonwalk while hugging a loop super tight with a stick, looking in any direction I want. You can't exactly do that with a digital input that only allows 8 directions. As for survivor, there is no difference. You don't need mouse precision at all for anything, and it's easy AF to turn your camera in a chase and keep running in the direction you want.
2) Irrelevant at this point. I have friends that have almost 5k hours. One friend has almost 12k escapes. Another has almost 13k kills. The first year the game was out this would be a valid point, but the game has been out so long that the extra time the game has been out on PC makes no difference.
3) This is a valid point. However, killers that overcome this limitation can be said to be more skilled than their PC counterparts. Also generally speaking the frame rate is not that bad. It's only very specific things like notifications or certain actions or killer abilities. Bloodlust causes frame drops too. But take any player that has been on console, put them on PC with a consistent frame rate I guarantee they will outperform majority of PC killers even with a controller in their hands.
4) You obviously do not play on Xbox. Xbox is FULL of sweaty try hards in every PVP online game. People that don't play on Xbox refuse to accept this but red ranks is like 70% 3-4 man SWF groups. Just scroll through the DBD page on Mixer. Every. Single. Survivor. On. Xbox. Is. SWF. And I know a lot of the best players on the platform, there is literally ONE person that plays solo at red ranks regularly, and he is considered by most of us to be the best survivor on the platform because of it. If you seriously think players on console, specifically Xbox, are casuals you are just being elitist pure and simple. This platform is full of sweat, it's part of the reason people choose Xbox to play online against other players. Your statement may be true for low ranks, who would be casuals on ANY platform, but is definitely 100% false for red/purple ranks.
PS. Note I'm talking specifically Xbox. I've heard PS players aren't very good, IDK how true this is, but I'm only speaking on behalf of Xbox players. Maybe a PS player can come and validate my points for their platform.
So does wingsofredemption. It may not be by choice.
Suicidefox, red ranks is pure SWF on PC as well, the difference is that they are brutal to deal with as a PC player unless you play the broken killers, or use regular-powered killers and use broken add-ons, like hag with mint rag+shackles. I would like to see some high ranked console killers gameplay as I know people that play killer on console and say its not meant to be played that way.
It is not possible to win or even have fun without ruin!
I too am satisfied when I completely let go of my standards for what should be a fun game and not a *stress inducing* game
I truly envy you guys. I play on PS4. Was rank 4 as killer before I uninstalled last week.
I agree that challenging games are fun, but having completely pointless matches against broken SWF, which the game isn't balanced around, is infuriating for me.
I don't mind losing to strong survivors if know I put up a fight but lost cause they played really well and it was a close game.
But going against a massively buffed team that wasn't supposed to be there is a no no for me.
That's your experience............ It can't change the reality.
No, it has been proved time and time again that PS players are the strongest overall, while I hear that Xbox players are not that good.
I tip my hat to you, fellow r/pcmasterrace user. Thank you for your service. Wholesome 100 breathtaking 100
