How would you feel if DBD ended?

I mean in a worse case than Friday 13th, say it all went to pot and the games servers shut and there was no more Dead By Daylight. How would you feel?

I am actually seriously contemplating retiring from DBD. As I have mentioned in various posts: I just don't have fun anymore. In fact, I feel frustrated and irritated, usually after a single game of DBD. So if it all ended tomorrow, I wouldn't care. I would be a bit miffed that I had spent a considerable bit of money on DLC, but it wouldn't be the end of the world.

I am not buying the Premium Pass for Tome 2. Main reasons being that the challenges are too time consuming and the unlockables are subpar. I don't want to be sitting on my backside for hours on end in the hopes of completing a frustrating challenge in order to unlock re-coloured cosmetic items. Sod that.

But I guess there are those who still find it fun and invest in the game. But if you didn't have it...would you be bothered?

    I would very much like to see a game with gameplay similar to F13 but a choice of original horror characters.

    I took 9 months off from December 2018 (Legion launch) until August 2019. Took me until about December to be burnt out again. Now I’m on another break.

    I would be elated. I have 5k hours in the game, and ready to see a new champion reign supreme.

    I spent maybe a total of 40 bucks on this game. Been playing since October, so I feel like I got my money’s worth. It’s not the end of the world if it shut down, plenty of other games to play.

    I'd be fine with it. It's a decent game at best in a genre where everyone else manages to somehow be mediocre. There are plenty of other games in different genres that I play that are well above the standards of what BHVR puts out, we just need someone to do that in this genre.

    Unlockables are subpar?? Somebody really be sleeping on that Elephant clown cosmetic..

    In the first place it's really cool that community creations are beginning to find their way into DBD in some form or another, and to read you disregard that completely just kinda rubs the wrong way.

    Desperate for any kind of human attention, simple as that.

    To answer @Dr_Loomis probably sad about it but also relieved.

    His "issue" is that he's a shill, he joins the forums and on the very same day starts hyping up the paid battlepass system, and gets a dev response. Might be a plant, might just be some dude who's unhealthily obsessed with the game.

    I'd still like at LEAST 5 more years of DBD....It still has an allure and fun factor that I cant replace currently.... It literally ia the only game where I can stalk and kill others as notable Horror Movie Icons, as well as some great original characters. It having a nice lore/backstory going on helps, as well as having the fun aspect of Perks and builds....

    It just needs the right hands to iron out all the issues & BS that weigh it down....if it just ended...Id be pretty bummed out :/ eventually Id be over it....but I feel the game can have a lot of life to it still.

    I'd love to tell you your issues but I ain't going to.

    You can figure em out yourself and they're pretty clear

    I wouldn't really care and if it died I wouldn't be surprised.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,675

    Pretty much the same.

    I have always loved horror, but this game is just a stress-fest. I'm not going to stick with it just because it's got all (or most) of my favourite horror characters in it. That's what caught my eye about DBD, the announcement of Michael Myers' inclusion on PC. When it came out on PS4, I couldn't wait to play as Myers.

    But now, 2.5+ years later, I can't be bothered anymore. It had it's moments but now I want to do other things.

    To be honest if F13 was still going strong with DLC releases, I doubt I would have played DBD after Freddy was released.

    I actually watched all of the SAW franchise and Stranger Things because of DBD.

    I hope people enjoy DBD in the future.

    I bet in a few weeks a Friday 13th chapter will be released 😂

    I feel like if a genuine competitor in the asymmetrical horror genre emerges then DbD will suffer hugely. Predator: Hunting Grounds and Resident Evil: Resistance are both around the corner so time will tell

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,220

    I updated afew games I use to play before DBD and have just been hopin on those more when DBD stresses me out. Ive gotten rusty at Overwater and theres aton of stuff to grind for on Warframe now that I dont have.

    Hi. I was referencing the Premium Pass. I thought Elephant was on the free pass?

  • USELESSUSELESS Member Posts: 1,151

    I think that I was going to have a lot more time to do things
