This game doesn't like new players!
I bought this game a week ago to play crossplat with friends. The learning curve is steep. The game is enjoyable- I really like the perks system, and being able to make your own character with all the perks you unlock over time is something that always drew me into the game to begin with. I have owned this game for only week now, but there are some glaring issues that I wanted to ask about:
-Why is the wiggle mechanic a thing? This mechanic is incredibly underwhelming for a console player, as I don't want to feel like I'm gonna break my joystick trying to get out of the Killer's grasp. Not only this, but the amount you recover when wiggling CORRECTLY is so slow, and hooks are everywhere, why does it even matter?
-There is no penalty for Killers when the BM. So I have to waste my time waiting to bleed out if the Killer decides they want to celebrate a 4 K? Being "face camped" is also a common issue, and when playing with friends who are higher ranks, being the lowest means you're the weakest, and therefore the easiest target. Why would I wanna que with friends if I'm always the first to be sacrifice because the killer rushes me because of how the system is arranged? This isn't something only new players deal with, it's a common issue according to the community.q
-So, until I learn all the maps left and right, and learn every loop, and every T structure, path and find a dedicated team who are just as knowledgeable, THEN I can enjoy the game? I get the learning curve is steep, but are you serious? Solo que is impossible as a new player, because no one knows what they're supposed to be doing. Not even the one's playing for a week longer than you. The Killer at these stages is either a SMURF or also doesn't know what they're doing because they tunnel vision one person and they die within the first 3 minutes. Then most games turn into "Ok who can play hide and seek the longest and find the hatch?" This isn't exciting gameplay.
I know it's a matter of "get good scrub" I get that, this game is very fun for me and I'm sure I'll get to a point where I might enjoy it. But as a new player, these and several other issues make it so daunting that I'd rather have spent that $30 on something I'd actually enjoy.
