first stop to buy content
2nd ask for response
be it in streams, on the forums, twitter, facebook whatever really
only ever consider to purchase anything again when they fixed what you ask for.
still dont buy stuff since nurse was broken.
I would be grateful if they held their hands up and said console optimization is not happening, rather than blatantly ignoring us.
Sounds good paying with our wallets is the only way I suppose.
I was going to say this on the main thread but it was closed before I could write it: from what I've gathered, most of the frame drops that aren't map specific happen when you get the little icon on the right for bloodlust, undetectable and perk related (ie hexes), if anyone has more information, please add it to this
I hope things don’t get worse with these new graphics.
Was nice meeting you.
When someone completes a gen/gets hooked it can cause your frames to drop which can cause you to miss skill checks or die in middle of struggle.
If anyone knows any video game journalists please let me know.

You promise your console playerbase 60 FPS, 1.5 years later things are actually worse and people are a bit annoyed. How do you respond?
1) here's that 60 FPS we promised, sorry about the delay!
2) Optimisation has been more difficult than anticipated but it is a priority issue and we will keep you updated regularly. We appreciate your patience.
3) Our goals were unrealistic and we can no longer promise this level on current consoles. However we will still try and optimise the current generation as best we can, as well as ensuring top-quality performance on the next gen. We're very sorry.
If another survivor gets by a killer running sloppy butcher my game grinds to a halt causing me to miss a skillcheck whilst working on a generator.
To be honest if i got banned right now it wouldnt even upset me.
I spend to much time and money on DBD as it is. I have all the killers all the survivors pretty much all the cosmetics.
The game isnt looking to get any better for me as a console player.
My experience as a console player is steadily going down hill and i honestly dont see it getting any better as i feel like performance issues will continue to plague the console community even with next generation consoles or at the very least we'll be waiting another year for an fps update.
Yall pc players keep enjoying the game as its really fun to play.
Ima head back to gow and r6 and f13.
You forgot number five.
Shut down the thread, say they'll delete others like it, sink threads, and merge discussions.
Ah yes, the wildcard option 😄
Good luck with gears 5 it's better but no where near the old games.
I think we the players deserve an apology from BHVR, their response to the console performance issues has been absolutely terrible.
By doing that, they thought they were putting the fire out with water, but it was gasoline
Mike Wilson at Bloody Disgusting writes about DBD alot. His contact info can be found on his articles there.
I don't have hard time playing thing is my ps4 overheat sounds like it about to blowup.
I half expect my ps4 to tell me to fasten my seatbelt in preparation for takeoff
That too, my ps4 sounds like it will take off any second
How can that be normal and how can they release a game that almost screws your platform?
bro they just merged my thread with yours, wth? they really don't want their discussion flooded with console optimization threads because it would give them a bad rep.
but yeah console needs to be heard!
and now I wait for my comment to me edited by """"me"""" (Taking a screenshot of my reply right after this so when they do edit my reply, ill have a laugh)
hey really don't want their discussion flooded with console optimization threads because it would give them a bad rep.
Or maybe other people would also like to discuss things besides console optimization without having their threads buried.
I lol hard on this so true.
not sure why I'm scared of the new update I have this game on steam too but my pc suck hard so I main on ps4 but witht he new update I don't know may not be able to play at all.
Would it be a good idea to spread this topic to twitter with a #?
It would raise even more awareness on how bad the issue is, and it would be harder to censor that
Edit: and it would help with the problem Orion talked about
We had one very nice and civil thread going buuuut they decided to close it. 🤷♀️
True, but the front page regularly has multiple threads all dedicated to one specific perk or killer that are allowed to flourish seperately
...Because people kept bumping it, which is against the rules. Why did you omit that part?
Yet they shouldn't be and it is, in fact, one of the main complaints on the forum.
Out of 35 pages, how many were bumping it?
They honestly don't have a clue when it comes to console, but they're more than happy to collect money hand over fist from console user's.
I get it the architecture of current gen console is outdated etc. But you can still get a game to run smoothly still look at R6, it runs at 60 fps on PS4 Pro and is graphically superior to DBD, there are plenty of games that look amazing that run 60fps because they are OPTIMIZED.
DBD for what it is, a simple 5 player multiplayer game with questionable graphics should have no issue hitting 60 fps on console if they had the right developer
