Guys. It Has Been Less Than A Day. Stop Saying Something Is Too Strong Or Weak

The PTB has been out for like 4 hours, you can not say for sure whether this killer or any of the perks need a buff or nerf.

Now let me make this clear, you can absolutely think the killer might be strong or might be weak. First impressions are big and can absolutely be right. But come on now, the load of pish some of you spew is disheartening.

But I've seen too many people say something like "WHAT WERE THE DEVS THINKING? THIS IS DUMB!"

I've seen some people even say that the devs shouldn't even release the chapter because of how broken The Twins are, which is dumb.

So please, don't jump to any conclusions will ya?

    That's what I'm saying. It's only been a couple of hours and I'm already seeing post like "KILLER NEEDS A BUFF" Give a few days

    Pretty sure you should know by now how the forum works.This post isn't gonna do anything.It's a waste of time unfortunately.

    A new chapter reveal / PTB is simply not complete until several people have declared that the DBD sky is falling because of reasons a through z. At the end of the day i reserve judgment until its been tested, perhaps adjusted and then put into play. 9 times out of 10 most of the complaints end up being about very niche situations that turn out not to be half as concerning as people think.

    I've already seen nearly a half dozen threads of people claiming Power Struggle is OP - after having never used it.

  • CrowmanCrowman Member Posts: 5,591

    It's the next For the People. People are overreacting at the idea that a perk has a strong effect and ignoring everything else about it.

  • GodDamn_AngelaGodDamn_Angela Member Posts: 2,213

    This reminds me of the release of:

    The Blight, The Deathslinger and, especially, The Oni. Hilarious.

    This is normal first day PTB reactions. You might as well tell people to stop complaining about DS or Noed.

  • SCP_FOR_DBDSCP_FOR_DBD Member Posts: 2,416

    My head hurts so much I can barely read the replys lmao. The ist of it seems to b e that this is normal, and while tht may be true I still think we oughta make it clear thaat most people don't support these rash decisions.

  • TerroTerro Member Posts: 1,171

    Eh it's the ptb. Ppl are going to leave their feedback. Then there are the people who are commenting based off videos that they've seen without playing the ptb at all. Yeah they might have good reasons why they can't access the ptb but it's still kinda weird to leave feedback.

    I confess, when people say This is OP This is UP, 95% of the time it's incorrect. People take one look at something and come to a conclusion. However there is that 5% where something people said would break the game actually ended up breaking the game.(Old MoM or Patch 1.9.2)

    But it's the PTB. Is that not the point of a PTB?

  • KateDunsonKateDunson Member Posts: 714

    Its early but the fact that victor cant do anything if a survivor goes into a locker needs to be changed for sure

  • SCP_FOR_DBDSCP_FOR_DBD Member Posts: 2,416

    Not what I’m saying. I said not to draw any total conclusions. Not that you can’t talk about anything balance wise. Its simply to early to definitely call a killer unusable or busted based on at the time 4 hours experience. That is way different than saying something like “Victor is hard countered by lockers.”

  • KaliniktaKalinikta Member Posts: 702

    Not really, it is just more concrete and useful to state it like that. It is a conclusion, it is drawn from just seeing a couple of matches played. It is stating that aspects of Victor are way to weak, I just specify exactly what those are in a more civil manner.

    Not everyone is a wordsmith or goes into details. Instead of shutting them down you should promote dialogue with them to understand what their concerns are to provide better feedback to the developers. Even their brute manner is valid feedback and that is what a PTB is for.

  • Xbob42Xbob42 Member Posts: 1,118

    The PTB is there for people to give feedback. Threads like this are actually what we don't need. Feedback can be useful... threads complaining about feedback serve no purpose whatsoever.

  • SCP_FOR_DBDSCP_FOR_DBD Member Posts: 2,416

    You seem to misunderstand me, I’m not saying drawing a conclusion for something is bad. What I’m saying is drawing a definitive conclusion overall is bad. It makes complete sense to say something “Victor is hard countered by lockers” as that is something you can catch onto quick. However, saying something like “this killer is a mistake and the devs are stupid” is not a smart conclusion to make after just 4 hours experience. If you gave someone 4 hours and then asked their opinion on nurse, do you expect them to say “shes the best killer in the game”?

    A prophecy fulfilled.

    And the legend will continue in another 12 weeks time.

    ...and another 12 weeks time.

    ...and another...

    You may cant say he's too strong or weak yet, but that doesnt mean you cant list any problem yet. (Like the locker ,,counter" to victor.)

    If Charlotte isnt close enough there is NOTHING what you can do about it.

  • Hex_StalkHex_Stalk Member Posts: 488

    Soooo the ability for survivors to take away the twins power completely isn't broken? The ability to hide in a locker then hop out just to punt Victor across the map isn't broken? Victor Misses? Just punt him. Killer is controlling Victor? Just complete the gen right next to Charlotte because they have no idea you are there.

    The Twins have major potential. But it depends on whether the devs will capitalize on that potential, or just push them out with minor/pointless tweaks.

  • SCP_FOR_DBDSCP_FOR_DBD Member Posts: 2,416

    Nope, you absolutely can and should point those out; thats the point of the PTB after all.

    I'm saying making a concrete claim like "Power is worthless" or "Power is OP" is dumb when people don't even have a day of experience with the killer. Its basically hat @JustChangeIt above you said.

  • Ghouled_MojoGhouled_Mojo Member Posts: 1,862

    I’m looking forward to it all. I think this is going to be fun all around. I hated blight but this is looking on the up and up.

  • DaKnightDaKnight Member Posts: 720

    I mean c'mon, you can read the descriptions of some of the perks and know if they are gonna be good or bad. As far as the killer's power itself that's a bit different.

    For example, double items from chests? That's gonna be really good. One guy with plunderers and a purple coin can get like ~10x chances for a key.

    Notifications for people opening chest? Laughable, if good for the memes. Devoting an entire perk slot for something that might give you 4-5 notifications a game, that you might not even be able to act upon, is a meme.

  • MadLordJackMadLordJack Member Posts: 8,815

    Normally, I would agree. However there is no escaping the fact that the killers entire power gets negated in too many extremely common scenarios, and that in turn lead me, someone who is usually very cautious about labelling something weak or strong in the first week, to call them the absolute worst killers in the game in their current state.

    I'm not even kidding, it is actually better to not use Victor at all, because of all the no-brainer counterplay and massive punishment.

    The new killer proves that dbd is dying...
