Do not buy this chapter with money

Don't do it. Use shards instead, or wait until they fix the issues.

I have:

  • 1.3k hours in this game
  • rank 1 on both killer and survivor
  • every killer fully unlocked with every perk.
  • multiple survivors with p3 and every perk unlocked
  • Purchased every DLC with money from steam

This isn't a killer vs survivor issue. This is an everyone issue.

I will not be buying this chapter for money. We need to show BHVR that this is unacceptable with our wallets, and show them that they can't do this again. If people just continue to buy this chapter for money, we will be showing them we don't care about this kind of thing and will still spend money.

We need to show them that they can't get away with doing this.

Problems with this patch that are unacceptable:

  • Victor getting bugged on lockers
  • Coup de Grâce getting nerfed before release despite already being a meme perk.
  • The new Hoarder perk flat out not functioning:

Hoarder: The perk currently does not lower the rarity of items found in chests

Hoarder: The perk currently does not spawn 2 extra chests

Hoarder: The notification does not always work when Survivors pick up items in the basement

  • The new Deception perk being almost unusable:

Deception: The feint locker animation may interfere with the rushed locker entry animation

Deception: Various issues may occur when using the perk with high latency

Deception: The UI does not function as intended

  • New power struggle perk just being buggy as hell

Power Struggle: The perk cannot be used immediately if the wiggle threshold was reached before wiggling

Power Struggle: Stunning the killer with this perk will sometimes snap the killer to the other side of the pallet

Power Struggle: Survivors may become stuck inside pallets after using Power Struggle

Power Struggle: The perk can't be used while actively wiggling

  • The killer literally being released in an unfinished state with the following parts completely unfinished:

Victor will be able to interact with lockers and hold a Survivor inside for a short amount of time. If Charlotte interacts with the locker in time, she will grab the Survivor. If the Survivor is not grabbed out of the locker in time, they will break free, killing Victor in the process.

During the PTB, Survivors realized that they can jump in a locker to avoid Victor since he is unable to search lockers. To prevent this, we’ll be giving Victor a unique interaction with lockers. This will take some animation work, however, so this will not be ready for the initial release.

Adding a delay to the Exit Gate blocker when a Survivor is downed with Victor on their back.

Not to mention the continued list of bugs and issues that have existed for over a year now that still have not been fixed:

  • Nurse being completely bugged with so many problems
  • Survivor sound bug STILL not fixed when they are on the ground
  • Dead hard exhausted while on the ground is still a thing.
  • Map generation just being completely broken on a few maps like Haddonfield with random bushes in walls, and dead zones on others.
  • The entire map of midwich.
  • How about that early game warmup you promised a year ago so killers don't lose 3 gens in the first chase, forcing them to play in unfun ways and stack gen perks?
  • How about killers camping the hook?

EDIT: Scott Jund summed up my opinions on this perfectly:

    Don’t worry I’m too tied up playing other more balanced games in the mean time. Seeing these issues absolutely don’t make me want to play the game, much less purchase anything. The only time I’ll play now is if I’m jumping on SWF.

    1.3K hours and every killer and survivor fully upgraded? Impossible. I am in the same position but I only have 1 survivor and 5 Killers

  • NomiNomadNomiNomad Member Posts: 2,680

    Ha! Like I have money to buy it anyways!

    But in all seriousness, this is the first chapter I have about 0 interest in. I bought every killer up to plague with Shards, and from then on have just been buying them with money, but this might be the first chapter I just don't buy, unless they fix it and realize we want them to be better.

    Im still gonna buy because I thought the new killer was really cool

  • Ryan489xRyan489x Member Posts: 1,435

    I'm going to wait a while to buy the chapter, I really can't afford too right now anyway. They had a PTB for the chapter and everything. and still nothing works right.

    I'll get it later when they're finished with it.

    I don't want to buy this chapter for money after what they did on Halloween (sale of new Halloween's outfits 3 days after their release). Perhaps these characters will be discounted in the coming week? :3

    May be, I will buy new survivor for shards later.

    (Purchased every DLC with money too)

    Not sure how that's possible unless you're talking p3. I have 500 hours and already have 1/2 the survivors and 1/2 the killers to lvl 50 with most teachables.

  • ReinamiReinami Member Posts: 2,285

    I'm trying to tell people that this should be their priority as well. If the sales of this chapter are the same, it tells BHVR that they can get away with doing this again in the future. And they will then keep doing it.

    It won't work. They're enjoying the game as it is because what you mentioned is simply not relevant to them.

    Too late, my friend already gifted it to me on Steam.

    Alright devs I'm not buying it but I'll trade you one of my garbage pail kids for it, lol damn I'm old I bet only a few are even old enough to know what they are

  • BwstedBwsted Member Posts: 2,690

    That's rough. Usually, when you get given a garbage present, at least you can regift. Not even that satisfaction this time.

  • The_KrapperThe_Krapper Member Posts: 2,131

    You're not garbage, just still learning... I've got 9000 hours and everyone but charlotte p3 and she's already prestiged once some people have just been here since day 1

    I am 100% buying this chapter with real money. Mostly because I spent all my shards on cosmetics and its way cheaper to snap it up on Steam anyway. Although I'm in no rush to buy it, I was mostly interested in the perks/Elodie anyway. The killer(s)? Not a big draw for me.

  • En3ermostEn3ermost Member Posts: 274

    Real money? I'm not even gonna buy this new mess of a killer with shards 😂

  • Kagari_LehaKagari_Leha Member Posts: 546

    seriously, ive always been on the side of the devs and defending them but there's clearly a difference between failing and having unexpected bugs, and just rushing out the content to just make sure they dont go past the deadline.

    That, and the halloween event, and the release all the time of new cosmetics and archives, which are just money-grabs may i remind everyone, and we get a lot of frustration from even the very dedicated fanbase, seriously, this is some real BS here. BHVR, WAKE. UP.

    I don’t think you need to worry about warning switch players. They can’t buy it because they can’t play. But anyways why did they not fix the bugs that they said they were going to fix? Just disappointing.

  • steezo_desteezo_de Member Posts: 921

    Too late. I'll always buy on day one because the issues this game has is deeper than this release and I know the ######### will get fixed eventually, at least the really bad stuff.

    The day I reach the tipping point isn't the day I refuse to pay for a DLC, it's the day I quit for good. Not there yet.

  • N13hol8sN13hol8s Member Posts: 9

    Switch player here. I play all the time got the game 4 months ago and racked up 500 hours. I play mainly survivor on handheld and killer on TV. Eventually I will get the new dlc but I'm missing a few killers and now 4 survivors. Only have silent Hill I need to pay for, the rest is shard work.

    Useally I just read these post and laugh but just had to say dbd on switch is playable and can easily buy dlc. I just have to play differently and always hope you don't have idiots on your team as always.

    It is weird though that they did bring the dlc out with known bugs right from the start. I can understand new bugs which happen but hey I see bugs all the time in all games it's nothing new. I will keep playing. I will keep reading through posts before I sleep. Night all
