To everyone won't play killer anymore

Okay look if you stopped playing killer just because things have been getting "harder" for the killers (apearntly it's an actual reason for no longer playing killer multiple people said this) literally if u want to win almost every match just patrol the three closest gens, and hook survivors on your patrol route to help discourage saving. You should get at least 3/4 kills every time

    Yeah, and Red Rank Killers get matched with lower Rank Survivors as well. It goes both ways. Like, there are a lot of Streamers in my area and since they changed the Matchmaking of SWF-groups, I almost never went against one of them. Even if they are playing at the same time like I do.

    The only time where I got a Streamer I played against on a regular basis before was Lefti a few days ago. Other than that - none. And they did not stop playing Killer.

    "The only way a Killer can get 4Ks is if the Survivors are bad."

    If you are talking about low Rank Killers vs Red Rank Survivors, this might be true. In general - no, not at all.

    Keeping hold of certain gens is certainly a good tactic. It doesn't necessarily need to be a 3 gen strat but you need to be mindful of which gens exist and which you're willing to let go and which you want to keep. I don't go for 3 gen strat straight away I usually do a few chases and as the gens go down I look for a good area with 3 or 4 close by or away from a god loop or in an area that has previously been cleared of pallets. You want to ensure the survivors don't get the last few gens spread mapwide basically. I do fine this way.

    It only sucks on maps like mothers dwelling where even gens are miles apart no matter what (seriously that map is ridiculous).

    Yea, red rank Killers would get matched against low rank survivors on Weekdays when there are less people playing overall, or when the survivors are in a mixed rank group. From what I understand, matchmaking may put red rank Killers against lower ranking Survivors if the Survivors were in queue for a while.

    And yes, in general, Good Killers can only win against Good Survivors of equal skill only if the Survivors screw up. If the Killer makes a mistake, they get punished for it much more than Survivors do if they make a mistake.

    Why do you think it got harder for killer? Just because they changed a perk that was cleansed within 30 seconds anyway?

    Nah, i stopped playing both side cause i'm already addicted to play other game

    Considering my killer que times on PC still suck, I don't think there has been a mass exodus of killers. I run into the same survivors over and over in matches, and wait way too long for matches, which tells me the ratio is still out of whack and there is proportionately more killers than survivors.

    Killer is still the best way to grind BP and is waaaaay easier than it was 2 years ago. Heck, even a year ago.

    There is lots of biased whining about a perceived survivor bias, but those whiners ignore the significant survivor nerfs over the past 2 years. It's nice not getting DS'd 4 times before your first hook. Or watching the survivor self care on the other side of the pallet because by the third one they are healed.

    Yeah, killer is harder than survivor, but not that hard at all. 3I is still the average, possibly closer to 3.5k.

    I play on PC and I get near instant matches when I play after 7PM central time. I instantly get matched on weekend nights.

    I have to wait when I play survivor, but it’s not as long as the people on the forums make it out to be.

    Patrolling a 3 gen from minute 1 and not committing to any chases might be the most boring way to play. Sucks for both sides.

  • DehitayDehitay Member Posts: 1,723

    This is one of the easiest strategies to counter if they figure out you're doing it in time. You absolutely have to compromise and leave at times risking losing your 3 gen or the same thing will always happen. In the end game, you'll be left with all 4 survivors alive and your 3 gen setup. Then after realizing you always leave them alone when they get far enough away, the survivors will split up and keep rushing away from gens when you get close and right back to them on the 2 further gens cause there's plenty of survivors to do this with. As long as the survivors are moderately intelligent and skilled, you're most likely never even going to get a hook if you never leave your 3 gen.

    It sounds like it isn't something that should have changed all that much, but the speed of matches has clearly changed drastically. Like, matches where the Killer did not use old Ruin, were never over as fast as matches are now. Survivors just don't give a ######### anymore, and just get on those gens from second 1.

  • A lot of the people who stopped playing wasn't because they were not winning, it's because they were not having any fun at all and found the role unfun and stressful compared to survivor, and decided to just stick with survivor.

    Playing killer right now with the matchmaker as broken as it is, some people get bullied by SWFs WAY out of their rank range, and can lose like 10 or 20 games in a row with zero kills at all. That isn't "Not winning every game" that's struggling to even squeeze some success from any game you are in.

    Then those ones are often stunned a lot, teabagged at every pallet, etc etc....

    This assumption that people don't want to play killer out of pure selfishness is a bit of an oversight as there have been legitimate reasons and issues pointed out by people, in a fairly rational and civil manner.

    (There of course people who ARE acting entitled , but that exists on both sides always anyways)

    It is hard to understand for me, why so many killer player have these problems now somehow.. well not really tbh, but i am suprised that many of them dont realise what they are doing wrong, while it is so obvious. As a killer, I got genrushed once since ruin change (as Leatherface on lerys, and i wanted the Chainsaw so bad because i got bored), and that was totally my fault. I guess, people just want to fully tunnelvision every single survivor peacefully.

    And this is not just my imagination or just a random assumption... the ammount of times where the killer is chaseing me for minutes is absurd.

    How is Bhvr supposed to balance a game, when a really potent killer actually can have a almost 200 4K streak in a row when he is playing his role correctly? Some here say DbD is ballanced for potato or new players.. so why can good killers get 4Ks all the time, and not so good killers are coming to the forum and complaining nonstop that they can not get any kills at all? Makes no sense.

    You can get banned for that 3 gen strat if you drag it out too long or do it with a doc where it is nearly impossible to get gens done.

    Imagine getting banned for doing what the game requires you to do. Stranger things have happpened

  • fleshboxfleshbox Member Posts: 494

    As well as having to sweat your hide off to get even one or two kills. At two the game snowballs if you have enough gens left. But after sweating that much you need a shower after every game.

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,112

    Everyone just needs to split up when the killer three gens, this is always how I beat the strategy.

  • MigrantTheGreatMigrantTheGreat Member Posts: 1,254

    I simply stopped playing killer because it is too stressful, and no longer fun. I shouldn't go to click on killer and my palms and face sweaty simply because the only way for a killer to have fun is to play in a way that pisses survivor's off. I think it's time to accept the fact that all the high rank and veteran killer's only play survivor or have left the game

    Survivors want to be in the power role v a single killer and thats why theres so much salt
