I think match-making has been fixed!

    I was playing as Clown and usually get good results.

    A few minutes in and I could tell the survivors were above average. I was rather shocked to see THREE rank 1s


  • MikeasaurusMikeasaurus Member Posts: 1,820

    Tell that to my last match of a Rank 18, Rank 16, Rank 12 and Rank 2. May have been SWF but they each came in alone so I think they were solos. Needless to say, no mercy was given!

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,677

    Yep. All sorted. Having a whale of a time.

    Well, I don't think that load out is right for a green rank.

    At this point a rank 10 killer could really be a rank 4 killer because it’s nearly impossible to pip up as a killer and it’s too easy to pip up as a survivor.

    and then there’s the ever other way that maps are unbalanced.

    at this point if 2 gens have popped before I get a hook I just DC. Sweet skillchecks guyz.

    This is the only saving grace, I play against red rank survivors and still demolish them because red rank is full of potatoes. I’ve pipped up from 13-8 playing against red ranks in about 90% of my games.

  • johnmwarnerjohnmwarner Member Posts: 3,793

    If true I agree, no sympathy. If you’ve depipped/smurfed so you can bully weak survivors you’re getting what you deserved. And if you are only low rank because “I haven’t played in a while,” you should still be able to perform better than this.

    Mori 1K

    Darn, you had me with the title.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,677

    Thanks for that.

    Anyway, I've never been higher than Survivor 6 and Killer 7. Never close to a 1.

    The reasoning for the load-outs is to complete challenges.

    But I'm glad it makes you glad.

    I've been doing Survivor most of today and tried a couple of killer games. Sadly, they weren't fun at all. The Survivors were, as expected, completely abhorrent.

    But quite frankly, I wouldn't expect anything less from a modern gaming community.

  • MikeasaurusMikeasaurus Member Posts: 1,820

    I'm having no issues gaining pips as a killer. And DC'ing because 2 Gens went off on 1 hook? Good luck finding a match that it doesn't happen in.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,677

    No. That was a completely false accusation by the forum member.

    Never de-pipped. Play regularly. Just not a fantastic player.

    To be honest, the last few weeks I have had been vs vast majority red survivors for some reason. The only killer I seem to have respectable results with against reds is Doctor.

    Bold of you to share your thirsty builds lol.

  • korean_zombiekorean_zombie Member Posts: 430

    usually I average a hook per gen. If 2 gens have popped and I still don’t have a hook, I don’t need to give you 1 more BP from our match. I don’t even try to pip anymore. Frankly I wonder why I even play killer anymore. The in game experience is terrible. And the studio nerfed the single best slowdown perk in the game?

  • MikeasaurusMikeasaurus Member Posts: 1,820

    Single best? Really? There are more perks to slowdown than just Ruin. Honestly, if you think Ruin was the best ever slowdown perk to go to, you need to try out more combos. Ruin isn't the end of slowing down perks.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,677


    Enjoy them. I'm usually a Surveillance, BBQ&C, Deerstalker, and Pop kind of guy...but challenges against red ranks with Clown and Bubba are a wee bit irritating.

    Just had another one (I'm trying to get the Dwight & Jake 'Leatherfaces')...my goodness...they play likes it's a military operation with added dance moves.

    Think I best get stuck in with my other interests. This is a right headache

    This was a post to show the absolute shambles that is DBD match-making. Red ranks shouldn't be matching up against greens. Especially rank 1s.

    I'm getting this a lot, as are many who have a killer game on PS4. It's really out of control.

    Naturally when killers can expect a complete lopsided match, they're going to use things like NOED and Moris. In the two instances above I was going for challenges, but I have used NOED and Mori more than I used to recently due to the utterly insane match-making. I end in matches with a large amount of individuals who seem to revel in antagonizing the killer. And this is coming from someone who has played majority Survivor recently.

    This has nothing to do with Ruin. Was never a big thing for me personally. And whilst I enjoy playing Survivor (and I don't mess about teabag and click etc), playing killer is just a disappointment sadly. Hands up: I'm not a 'pro-gamer' who streams on YouTube/Twitch to showcase their finest troll moments. I do not live and breathe DBD. Nor do I enjoy taunting others with unoriginal internet memes hijacked from Reddit etc.

    But unfortunately, this game can be a crude mixture of bad match-making, unbalanced gameplay and player 'toxicity' (hate that buzzword).

    I would like to be playing against players of my ability level, not getting slaughtered each match and having a bad taste for using cheap perks and add-ons.

    But...it's only a game.

    Business as usual

  • johnmwarnerjohnmwarner Member Posts: 3,793

    Really? I’ve had plenty of games where 2 gens pop super quick and no more the whole game. Survivors blow their load and then get phobia ass soon as they hear the killer.

  • SylorknagSylorknag Member Posts: 760

    Why does it seem that killer are the ones having this problem more prominently?

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,677

    That's it. That's the sad truth these days.

    We will continue to go against game-obsessed comedians who have a "VICTORY ROYALE!" wallpaper on their PS4 profile.

    I enjoy playing survivor, but playing killer is just crap these days (with the exception of Doctor, who is fun to play as or against for that matter).

    Oh well.

  • MegMain98MegMain98 Member Posts: 2,575

    I don’t struggle too much against most survivors unless I get a bad map or bad RNG.

    It can be brutal to learn a new killer though. I tried Nurse today and I got two survivors with No Mither who had Boil Over and sabotaged all my hooks. I also play on PS4 so Nurse is not forgiving if you suck with blinks, which I do. Not a very pleasant feeling to see them butt dance at the exit gates because they think they’re amazing that they did something special by beating someone new to Nurse :/

    I also played Oni and got my cheeks clapped but he’s a bit more forgiving though.

    You win some, you lose some. It’s a game. Doesn’t affect me personally. Can be annoying but I’ll forget about it the next day.

  • Flarefire_XxFlarefire_Xx Member Posts: 353

    I just generally get unlucky as a killer and get dc’s and lose a pip or black pip, also because it is hard to rank up as a killer if your not grinding 24/7, I am Rank 9 I can 4K a group of 4 red rank friends

  • namjuunnnamjuunn Member Posts: 43

    am rank 5 and got into a game with rank 3 killer, other survivors were rank 12, 8 and 15. also lmao the killer just camped me for the first 5 minutes of the game. Fun as I say

  • Hail_to_the_KingHail_to_the_King Member Posts: 153
