53,742 Players, probably one of the highest numbers I have seen in a while...

And I cannot for the love of god find a match unless I wait a full f**king hour or longer!?

WHY DO WE GET PUNISHED FOR PLAYING AT HIGHER RANKS! I play a lot of killer.

Not like I got trapped between ranks 1-10 or anything, and while the challenge is nice. I would like to get a lobby some time this fking year while DOUBLE BP IS FKING ACTIVE!

    Try restarting the game if it takes too long, helped me a lil bit.
    I wait around 10 minutes at most.

    Survivor or killer? You could always switch to the other and see how their queue times are.

    Yea ques seem to be right at around 10 minutes or so. I do concur with above though, it sucks grinding BPs on survivor.

    Takes forever as killer. As survivor it’s about 3 seconds

    Killer, sorry I didn't specify. It was bad enough, since everyone wants to play the new killer already. Now this.

    Survivor queue times are just fine. As always. But I have played survivor a lot recently, and only have killer dailies.

    Its a pain.

    In one week, all the survivor mains will retire from spirit and we have normal queues again.

    It didnt help that bp event, free to play week and DLC all hit at the same time

    Probably because of the recent DLC drop. I find when they release a new killer there are much more people who play killer. I am one of them. I main survivor but when new killer drops I spend the first week playing only killer, probably whats happening now, more survivors are playing killer, but it will level out once things settle down.

    I usually don't mind grinding with either survivor or killer.

    But my problem right now is, that for the past week or so I have not gotten to play killer. I have friends that want to play survivor and crap, then a new killer comes out which means everyone plays the new killer, so the queue times are longer. Plus higher ranks, there are way less people, so by default it just takes longer. Add the new killer thing, you might not see anyone for a while, which is the current issue.

    I currently have a bunch of killer dailies that I cannot complete because it takes so long to get a lobby full.

    It feels like a punishment to be in higher ranks. And with the new system in place, unless I DC or play poorly on purpose I will be within the ranks 1-10 consistently. Which once again, is fair and the challenge is welcome. But if i'm not getting any matches then whats the point?

    I hardly have the time of the day to play multiple matches, and if I have to wait more than 20 minutes to get into matches, that is wasted time and I am better off finding a different game.

    It really does suck, specially since there is a x2 BP I would love to take more part in that I currently can.

    I got to play 4 matches yesterday. It sucks...

    It has nothing to do with BBQ. Christ. It's because a new killer dropped and it's a x2 BP weekend and I think the game is free to play. Things will balance out once people get The Spirit to level 40 for her teachables and stop playing her.

    Yes, that’s why I find lobbies instantly as survivor, featuring every killer BUT spirit...

    Suvivors can't rank up as easily cus people keep disconnecting. So it takes ages to get out of where rank reset put you and back up to higher ranks.

    All that would be fine, if it wouldn't effect the x2 BP, but it really does hamper how much I can get out of that.

    But that's the others who DC. What you said here makes it sound like people just give up, which is the incorrect thing to do.

    Every match someone DCs I play like normal, and even if I die, I generally come out with one pip.

  • Swiftblade131Swiftblade131 Member Posts: 2,029

    As I said, punished for playing in the higher ranks.

    Blame survivors who artificially keep their ranks low with constant DCing. I personally don't get it, I always enjoyed ranking up as a survivor because the higher I got the easier the games got but it seems most survivors are just trying to hover as close to rank 15 as humanly possible now.

    Because survivors want to have "fun", but where is the fun in beating someone that you know you are going to be better than.

    Nothing but a bunch of pushovers is what they are.

    What happened to being prideful about beating someone who is better than you?

    Personally I find the increased killer queue time ridiculous for 1 key reason. People said the Spirit would be bad all during the lead up to her release. Now she's here and even worse "whooshing sound" + insta blind. Yet I can't get a lobby because y'all are playing . . .
    . . . a bad killer? Dwuh?!

    No, they're playing their normal killers and spending all their BP to unlock The Spirit's perks.

    Hence way survivor BP profit being too low is a problem, that several people here are denying

    Not enough survivors playing. You can blame BBQ for being vastly surperior to WGLF and WAY easier to get tokens for that.

    Wrong.

    Finding a survivor, hitting them 2 times, and then hooking them is NOT EASIER than a simple unhook.

    How do you think they got on that hook?

    It's been that way since before WGLF and BBQ though. Killers have always gotten more points on average than survivors.

    Your complaint that WGLF is too hard to get tokens on is just silly, though. All you have to do is interfere in a chase, take a hit, then run away and heal. Or just run BT and divebomb every hook. Unhook once and take a hit for the person you unhooked, that's half your tokens right there.

    Yes, chase a chase while no gens get done, lose, and probably get targeted instead once I take a hit. Totally easier than BBQ where you just do the objective

    I think Jack nailed.  Solid game as surv - 30k BP right now.  Solid game as killer - 75k BP.
