The event they gave us 2 years ago was a lot of fun. Dumb yes but fun all the same. They even gave us 2 sets of cosmetics rather than the intended 1 to appease fans who felt a little disappointed by the prizes.
Fast forward 2 years and now we get....a rift. Yay another rift. With its repetitive and grindy challenges.
Its easy to slap out a rift than to create a good event and more importantly it makes more money. There’s no money in having good events.
Pay for some boring grindy missions and pay to unlock new costumes.
The direction this game has been going is not good. Its like they’re so scared of the company being a 1 hit wonder they’re milking DBD for all they can get.
Your last sentence is really what I think is going on. This is especially noticeable when we look at Deathgarden and there aren't many more "good" licenses left to get in my opinion which means they're left to their own creativity with new killers if this game lasts for a few more years.
Rant away Coconut, I often disagree with your conclusions, but at the same time it´s interesting to follow your reasoning. I like taking in different views and opinions.
I heard roomer there was going to be a re-emergence of the legendary hallowed blight skin for Nurse?
I cant even find a screenshot of her outfit online any more. It's like I've shifted into a parallel dimension here it never existed lol.
Take my money damn you! I want this XD
Oh wait, never mind here it is:
^really want this
I played on ps4 last event and pretty much every event since the bbq event(since I started), I rarely saw any bps during the last halloween event, I moved to pc on the covid 1.5x bonus so I'm not sure how often pc survivors put bps during the halloween event.
There was an add-on for survivor's medkit as well. It was called refined serum and it moderately increases the speed of the survivor for 20 seconds.
What the #########?
I called this all the way back when 2.0.0 and the cosmetic store launched.
$10 for a cosmetic is absolutely insane, but I accepted it at first because it probably wasn’t cheap to make all those cosmetics and release them in a big patch like 2.0.0. But as time went on, the devs realized that people would eat up anything they threw at them, so they continued with the overpriced cosmetics and then introduced the Rift and Archives with their repetitive and grindy (and sometimes just straight BS) challenges. The lore is cool and it’s nice to have another way to earn BP, but they had to lock cosmetics and charms behind them and your only other option is to spend money. Now I only buy cosmetics if they’re actually worth it instead of just buying whatever. I wouldn’t be surprised if BHVR becomes the next Activision in 2021 or 2022. It’s sad, but not very surprising.
Well, I was not talking about the bps in general, just to compare. Each special gen gave 4k extra BP and each hook I think 2k
Meaning each side got round about 8-12k extra BP per match. So that's not what I would call a small bost. The 4th year anniversary was small, where you only got 500 for collecting and whatever for escaping on top, which was not the case every game. But gen BP you also got while dying on hook for example. We were like "nah, just finish the event gen before I die"
Well, every time they try a new mechanic for events, everyone hates it. Lanterns, crowns, pustules. All hated.
Nice constructive commentary you got there.
You completely missed the point that the OP was making. He wasn't complaining about what was being given, but HOW it was being given. Maybe next time read through the post a few times before jumping down someone's throat with a knee-jerk reaction.
Points 1, 2, 5 and 6 are correct. Points 3 and 7 are partially correct.
There will be a new cosmetic for David on the paid track of the Rift, but they confirmed that there will also be other blighted cosmetics available that haven't been revealed yet. I'm not sure why you would assume that auric cells will be the primary or only method for obtaining the event cosmetics, unless I misinterpreted what you said. There's certainly no precedent for it - every other Halloween event so far has offered a means by which to get at least one or two event outfits for free.
Also, there is no new flashlight, just the normal Halloween one and the medkit, but there will be new event add-ons for medkits and flashlights. The "Broken Bulb" they showed on stream was just an example of one of those.
This aged like milk.
I actually miss the year we got the plants! I thought that was really fun and of course the Chinese New Year event with the lanterns was great. I wish they would just bring back those events every year to change it up. I'm so bored of the Archives.
This is true, but at least DBD has regular content atm. There hasn't been any non-skin content for OW in like 7 months. And before that, it was 6 months. It used to get new content in the same week as DBD did, every 3 months.
I dont miss anything, people are complaining that they get free stuff and sutff you CAN buy. Its optional. Why would anybody complain about skins that cost money? Makes no sense to me.
I know... this is the forum, where the top 1% complainers are summond (including me complaining about complainers) but do we really have to discuss about free stuff and a event which does not have to occure? Take the medkit, be happy and run and if you dont like it, leave it.
I mean what else do you want to do unless you want them to go back to people doing the most scummy stuff possible to get serum and then suiciding on hook once they got what they need
this thread pretty much started just to find things to complain about instead of getting all the current info about the event.
we dont know if the serum currency is coming back, and leaks show that the currency isnt in this event
most likely, we cant get any cosmetics for free this year
I did not notice that in my games. But if they are too concerned for Plants, they should let Serum be available via Gens and Hooks. Then both sides only have to play the game and still get Serum.
Well they said there will be login rewards and also other skins put out via social media which I guess will be a hidden code. Hopefully they won't be on a first come basis like the last ones and everyone can get it once found.
I do dislike making the events part of the rift itself as it feels more grindy and these challenges well we will have to see what they entail but I am skeptical as it feels like more rift promotion than an event.
Instead of these special offerings for gens I would quite frankly prefer a dbp event so people can play other offerings instead since they are solely about bloodpoints the reward isn't that great since they normally cost 3k to buy you can earn max 17k extra if all 5 gens or hooks are done and everyone of course plays the offering.
Events are a bit underwhelming after the inclusion of the rift. I used to take the time to play as much as possible and really enjoyed them but now well I just play as I do now and don't put in the same effort as they feel less rewarding and more grindy.
Completely agree. If the Offerings only give BPs, they should just do a Double BP-Event. My SWF-Mate and myself will burn every Cake or BPS we have left, so we will get a lot more BPs with that.
And btw., last year, the Event-Offerings only gave 3k Bonus-BPs for a Hook or Gen.
Look at the OP. All he does since years is complaining that the devs are ignoring the BIG issues and instead they focus on Skins and other uesless stuff... and now suddendly, he wants to start a rant because they dont do enough skins and events. HOW can we blame the devs that they wont take us serious if we have people here who act like that? Tell me.
Well thank heavens hes capable of making a second video on the topic when the event comes out right?
I understood why they put the serums into the Rift last year; since it was the first Rift, they wanted to ensure we would play the new content. But with the lack of mention of the serums, I fear they will simply add some of the Halloween skins to the Rift and split them among the free and paid tracks. Not only that, but without the serums, we can't use them to by the older Halloween skins.
That he is
Really you think that way?
So, if you dont mind, can you tell us what the big difference between now and then are? Not by saying "in the past everything was better". Just what exactly was better? Where do you see the entertainment value and where do you see now the engagement?
And why should that be important?
Also, it is not that i dont like the individual we were talking about, its just that he is only complaining for the sake of complaining. I mean ######### apparently the games problem are devs wasting time creating skins, now its the opposite? Where is my facepalm meme picture?
