What was the worst original chapter for you?



  • KebekKebek Member Posts: 3,676

    Funnily enough your most hated chapter is my absolute most favourite chapter of all made, Chains of hate it amazing imao.

    As for the worst chapter definetly Darkness Among Us. Legion back then was the most horribly designed killer ever made and after they "fixed" him he just became M1 killer who annoys survivors with mending if they let him. Ormond even when cool looking art wise is one of the worst maps balance wise. Only positive was Jeff beiing really cool survivor otherwise everything kinda sucked.

    Gonna agree with the masses here and say Darkness Among Us.

    Ormond is one of the least enjoyable maps to play on, Legion(while they were fun to play as on release and while I do like their general design and lore) is to this very day an absolute mess of a character, most perks that came with this chapter are also just underwhelming with the exception of Discordance and maybe Distortion.

    Jeff is pretty neat though and I wish more people would play him.

    Guess I'll roll with chains, the chapter I'll probably never buy. Characters are meh, perks especially on the killer side are a hard pass, it also brought breakable walls. They are improving those somewhat in the silent hill map where some are some very much interesting decisions but I'm still a bit skeptical.

    I like Deathslingers design but he's just so bad. Like he can get downs but he sucks at everything else so playing him just doesn't feel rewarding at all. Playing more survivor also showed me just how annoying he was to play against. You either have a split second reaction or you hope he misses and thats all there is.

    I think Darkness Among us was probably the worst on release since Legion was literally a free win. Of course theres still a few killers like that but release day Legion was the epitome of it. It was a cool concept but it doesn't work in DBD.

    Darkness amongst us, without hasitation. I agree with everything people above have stated. I used to main legion until I faced them as a survivor. I wanted to dc just not to mend for the 18th time in a match. Then I abandoned them, and I despise them since.

    Then there is cursed legacy and oni...man I hate him, hes so loud and ugly! and have you seen the map? Sure you did. Its a joke. A huge damn deadzone.

    Aaand chains of hate. With deathslinger. No comments.

    Nah, she's probably the easiest killer in the game, and extremely powerful. All you need to play her is working headphones, and if you're really tryhard, strider. I can hop on spirit right now, and not lose a single match, because if how badly designed she is.

    I think we were spoiled with the previous killers power being pretty dynamic while deathslinger is almost straightforward and simple.

    But i agree, chains of hate has to be my least favorite.

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 5,294

    Curtain call is up there. At the time I despised facing the clown, I remember thinking he was too strong lol

    However it's actually Chains of Hate.. literally. I just don't find that killer fun to face or play as.

    Favourite was Darkness Among Us honestly. At the time I only played survivor so an easy killer to beat, who also gave me loads of points I loved.

    i will go with "Dakness among us" chapter it gave us killer who shouldnt end up in this game and im not a big fan of ormond as it goes to jeff im neutral on him

  • SemimaticSemimatic Member Posts: 162

    Darkness Among Us because he was advertised as a more disguise or stealth like killer and then we got an abomination of a power..

    Darkness Among Us - Because Legion.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 21,675

    Darkness Among Us (Legion) was the most disappointing chapter. From the name and description, we were expecting a multi-body killer. From the trailer, we expected a killer who could disguise himself as a survivor. Instead, what we got was Legion. Very fun to play as due to his high mobility, but highly inefficient (especially after all the nerfs) and annoying due to their self-stunning power that just makes survivors have to hold M1.

  • SpookyStabbySpookyStabby Member Posts: 621

    Chains of Hate. Western horror just as a concept is lame. Zarina was the only cool thing to come out of that and I'm a Killer main who doesn't even use her.

    Demise of the faithful

    Plague is soooooo boring

    Jane players are always major #########

    And the map on release was awful but now it's ok

  • Squirrel_ThiccSquirrel_Thicc Member Posts: 2,678

    Darkness among us. Legion. And Jeff got very mediocre perks. Plus a terrible map.

    It brought Kate, who I main and adore. But I share your dislike for Clown feel like its the chapter everyone forgets because it wasn't very memorable.

  • ManyAchievablesManyAchievables Member Posts: 646

    Chains Of Hate.

    I hate the map, the Survivor is bland and has lazy perks, Killer has bad perks and is a mediocre Killer.

    Say what you want about Shattered Bloodline or Darkness Among Us, at least those brought something that gave an impact in the meta for perks. Deliverance and Spirit Fury are great combo perks and Discordance is really good in general.

    Also Darkness Among Us has Jeff, who is hands down the BEST Survivor that the developers have ever made.

    As much as I personally loathe Chains of Hate (it's the only original chapter I haven't spent real money on) for being boring and uninspired, I'll have to say Darkness Among Us.

    Release Legion was horribly designed (they also nearly killed the game) and was Ormond broken on release (playing it crashed the game) and had to be removed for quite a while IIRC.

    Also I hate Distortion and how it counters aura reading. Nobody runs it, but when they do it's an annoying thorn in my side.

  • StardustSpeedwayStardustSpeedway Member Posts: 829

    Legion for sure.

  • edgarpoopedgarpoop Member Posts: 5,105

    Darkness Among Us or Chains of Hate. Nobody likes Deep Wound.

    Chains of Hate, bland cliche-riddled survivor, killer who doesnt really fit at all (a zombie cowboy? who tought that?), Survivor perks were bad (ive seen For the People backfiring more times than being truly useful and the other 2 are just awful), Killer perks were nothing special either, I only like the map but its repetitive as the tiles are always the same with gens in the same spots.

    While Darkness amongst us brought old Legion with it and a broken map (I dont dislike Ormond but it crashed the game) it brought Discordance which is great, Jeff who has one of the best backgrounds and looks for original Survivor and Distortion and Aftercare are nice for newcomers (not so good for veterans but they help newcomers which have been forgotten by a long time).

    Demise of the faithful. Because I abhor plague and Jane is awkward. Please stop making porn sounds.

  • AlifyAlify Member Posts: 346

    Curtain Call: only 1 actually good perk, lazily-invented clown power, no new realm. Devs could come up with a very interesting and unique power to the clown, but they made a very uninteresting ability to throw bottles, seriously? it has nothing to do with anything clowning at all, I really hope that in the future devs will come up with a really interesting power and new mechanics. Although in fact you can understand, since in this update the developers changed a lot in the technical part and tried hard to balance the game so maybe they didn’t have enough time to come up with new interesting perks, power etc.

    But if anyone can use her and do well with her, even when we're all apparently not playing her "properly"...then how easy is it to win with her when you do play her properly lmao. She is objectively a very easy killer to play and get good with. It's not even a bad thing, so idk why you'd even want to try and defend this because even the hardest killer to play, The Nurse, isn't very demanding at all. This game was designed to be a very simplistic and accessible game and it works well in that respect.

  • AlifyAlify Member Posts: 346

    Game for the spirit depends on the quality of your headphones, if it is good, then it will be very easy, if not, then it will be just easy lmao

  • TheStabbiNAngeLTheStabbiNAngeL Member Posts: 1,264

    Hey you're right Legion is trash tunneling it really isn't so bad,Legion's a bad ass killer only if the timer ran down during chase's also we'd be unstoppable other Legion.

  • SporkSpork Member Posts: 122

    When the Legion first came out, it was hell. They've definitely fixed them though, buuuuuuuuuut I'd still like to see them changed. I'm just not satisfied with their current state and I feel like there is SO much potential with them.

  • TheStabbiNAngeLTheStabbiNAngeL Member Posts: 1,264

    Me too where if you didn't like the killer's design, their backstory may intrigue or one of their perks is salvageable, it's always something there for someone. Regardless of the dislike for the chapter it self and the spotlights are always dope.I didn't much like the Oni until, I read his backstory and saw the Spotlight and that was 4 months after his release, don't get me wrong after the release, I played with him and warm up to him ,but when I read his backstory that's when I truly appreciated him.
