Solo survivor is now so unplayable that the only people playing the game a month from now will be four man SWFs, and they can balance accordingly. Excellent work.
I play nothing but Solo and I haven't noticed anything off or broken about it. Did I miss something?
Just one of many who don't understand how MMR works. Another doomsayer who can't accept change. Remember when everyone said if ruin was changed all killers would quit. Here we are with even more players than before.
no actually solo q is literally unplayable and i definitely dont remember "everyone" saying that, just some #########
The new MMR. This post is mostly a joke but the new MMR is funnier.
Yes, pairing players who have thousands of hours played with teammates who are literally playing the game for the first time. I’m the one with a bad understanding of how MMR is supposed to work, clearly.
Solo queue isn't that bad, just run kindred. I can run meme builds and still escape regularly.
Play to have good chases and plan ahead of your teammates and the killer.
It's challenging, but very rewarding when you make good reads and affect the outcome of the match with your own skill.
I see what they mean killers have massive hand outs and if you're solo you get the raw end
It's awful. You either get baby killers or get paired with three brown rank teammates.
It's pretty much the same story as killer. I have like 1000 hours on killer and playing survivors who have 30 hours
I believe the 1st dozen games you play will be a bit messy with the new MMR system.
I think the system will match you with players of different levels while auto running it, until it finds a balance of your skill level.
A similar thing happens with the provisional games at the beginning of each season in League of Legends. As you go through this games the system will be will match you according with your results. Of course the Dbd metrics will be kind different. Not just based on victory or defeat.
I just played 2 rainbow games vs low rank killers. After that the skill level of all players in the following matches raised.
Just give it time and play some games. Eventually you will land in the right spot.
People think that not being able to escape every single game means solo queue is unplayable. They get so used to the free escapes from their 4 man spoon fed info SWF that when they don't have it the game becomes "unplayable".
Nice straw man, but I play only solo and have for months.
MMR is interesting to say the least. Red ranks are just miserable to play at for both sides I think. Now that MMR is working, you are more likely to get red ranks unless you smurf your survivor group, so every game is a sweaty mess. They really need to come up with a casual option or unranked or something. Then there's the lovely aura issue. :(
OP I'd love to hear what specifically you don't like about solo queue at the moment. Can you elaborate?
And before you say it will all be SWFs . . . you should know that that is messed up at the moment as well with having to add folks to your friend list in steam before you can invite them to a lobby. While that doesn't affect standing groups, it does impact new ones. You spend 15-20 minutes getting people connected and then when you lose a team member, you have to start the process again. Lots of wasted time.
I admire your optimism! No sarcasm, I honestly wish I could be more optimistic about this change but my experience has been pretty awful so far.
I play only solo survivor and you pretty much have to play SWF because the killers get so many hand outs on top of 2nd chance perks. The rampant tunneling and camping killers with Noed is just too much
My beef with solo queue at the moment is the new MMR system.
To be honest this post was just a hyperbolic joke, I was frustrated and not being terribly serious. I think the game will probably be fine, it’s just fun to vent.
Another person who makes extreme suggestions based off a legitimate concern. Tell me oh wise one, how do one of these survivors manage to escape then?
I haven’t even tried killer yet, I’m scared to.
I'm a rank 1 killer and have played 5 games today. The trend seems to be 1 red rank and three brown ranks.
And? This same thing has been happening to killers for much much longer. New killers going against red rank SWF.
By choosing to offend OP you’ve entirely missed the point of the post. I’ll reiterate it for you in simpler text:
New MMR is meant to fix disparities in skill, so far, it has not. It has been running in the background for weeks/months now, according to the devs.
The ranks shown have had strong correlation to the players skill and although ranks are all we have proof of, we can see the differences in skill when we’re playing in the actual game. Therefore, the end game ranks make sense as to why their skills are so bad/good.
I understand how the new system works. What im saying though is that this matchmaking has been happening for months, even before they "changed" the matchmaking.
Nothing is wrong. People are just dramatic.
The game is pretty much balanced
Solo queue is unplayable? Seems to be working for me.... 🤷♀️
The guy with no perks wasn’t bugged by the way, he had less than 1 hour playtime of Dead by Daylight.
You missed nothing. Bad players blaming others as usual.
What the ######### are you talking about, blaming others? I’m not blaming new players for being bad I’m blaming the devs for pairing brand new players with people who have thousands of hours of experience.
With an MMR system, everyone should start centering around winning 50% of their game’s and losing 50% of their games. ######### storm incoming. The whole point here is that people will balance out with each other. The system needs to balance itself.
either that or they botched this and it’s not actually enabled.
Anyone who thinks solo surv is playable probably crouches until everyone dies and hops in hatch. Solo players are selfish. Players that dont want to work as a team or cant because they dont know how are boring and unfun to be in matches with. This is why swf is fun. Voice coms have little to do with it. Playing without voice can be really fun if you have good team mates. I can depend on my friends. They know how to run, juke, stealth, save, not waste time healing every time they are injured....
Idk why its controversial to say I want to play with team mates that are at my skill level. No more no less. It's not fun knowing in solo if I want to escape I basically have to play selfishly bc ik the moment I'm on the hook I'm at the mercy of bad players. Ik lots of killers like playing against selfish, clueless randos so they can tunnel them to death and then come for me when they've wasted all the pallets... but uh, it ain't for me.
I watched otz get paired with nothing but survivors with a couple hundred hours multiple games in a row. Meanwhile, when I play killer I continuously get survivors with thousands of hours while performing badly.
So the better you do the easier the opponents get and the worse you do the harder? I really don't understand what BVHR was thinking
"even more survivors" killer numbers dropped.
