Noobies Getting Shafted by Matchmaking
About a week ago, I was playing a normal Killer match as Freddy, and I notice one of the Survivors in my match is just not that good. This Feng Min, she's running into open, empty spots, not even trying to loop. I down her and hook her, and continue the match. I go on, kill 2 more Survivors with 4 gens still up, slug the third, and go find the Feng Min standing again in the middle of a field. She stands still and lets me down her. I go and hook the other Survivor, and pick up Feng to find hatch. I close hatch (Because of that challenge) and let her have the gate, and let her go.
I get a message afterwards from the Feng, thanking me, telling me how she just got the game because a friend told her and she's constantly getting put with high ranks. I tell her no problem, and that I'd love to do anything to keep new players. DbD is very unforgiving to new players.
That was probably one of my favorite moments I've ever had playing this game. Helping a new player survive and letting them know there are good people that play the game, and that there is hope to get better and have fun.
It just sucks so much that these players are having this happen to them. If when I played in 2017 and only got red ranks, I would've quit. How did matchmaking get worse over the span of nearly 2 and a half years?
