In the end, you'll still play dbd

Let's face it.

We can complain all we want, we can say we are not playing the game anymore or let our wallets speak. But the truth is that we all will play untill BHVR shut down the servers.

Its simple, there is no other game out there like dbd, we all have a Love-Hate relationship with it. The game gets 50k players on steam as we speak, and we had the most discussed patch ever come out.

We also invested too much time into it to walk away from it.

New players dont know the bullshit, casual players will overlook the bullshit.

Yup, You sold your soul to the entity without even knowing it.

    yeah but it'll go from 10-12 matches an evening to 4-5 then 1-2 then a long break and this game needs more killers, but its the killer HUD that is turning me off it.

    I actually will not play survivor anymore, and doubt i'll even play killer. this update ruined the game.

    Not me. Delete.

    True, I will crawl back anyway. The thing is, it doesn't change the fact they're breaking their own game.

  • IWasLeft2DieIWasLeft2Die Member Posts: 2,004

    They'll do a hot fix soon, patch stuff again in a bit and give out free currency and everything will be forgiven by most players.

    For the meantime I'll still play but if its on The Game ill very reluctantly play as killer and may just have fun with survivors

    Not always true, my friends and I stopped playing two tomes ago (around Halloween last year). I check in now and again to see what state the game is in, which only reaffirms I made the right decision to quit.

  • ShenshenShenshen Member Posts: 228

    I highly doubt that. I played League of Legends for 7 years and once I had enough I just deleted the game. Sure I spend about 4.000,00$ on skins and stuff but money is just paper with numbers on it.

    demonstrably untrue, i'd be playing now except for the bugs and survivor movement / hitbox changes (bugs hopefully)

    To be honest with each update as of lately I find myself talking about DBD more than actually playing it. This update is a prime example.

    I am taking an extended break but no guarantees to permanently stop playing but at the same time I feel like I'm not missing out on anything. Worst case scenario I'll just wait until they're done reworking all the maps and see what the game has to offer then. Maybe then the UI won't look cluttered.

    I haven’t played for 3 weeks, I’ve been popping in to the forums to see if anything changed about the HUD and survivor animations between PTB and the patch going live and of course it didn’t so I have no interest in coming back.

  • FabsRinasFabsRinas Member Posts: 169

    I play once a month at most, just to see if it improves through a miracle

    I'm starting to think miracles aren't real

    No, limit has been reached.

  • Ryan489xRyan489x Member Posts: 1,435

    If a game like Friday the 13th comes along again with the amount of care and respect to the franchise it represents I'll stop playing this game in a heartbeat.

  • chadbeastofpreychadbeastofprey Member Posts: 433

    nah, i haven't even updated the game and am not planning on doing so until there are some changes.

  • Ô_boroÔ_boro Member Posts: 51

    Same here, I uninstalled the game. Enough is enough.

    Speak for yourself. I have lots of games in my back catalog, still have 3500+ hrs in Smite. Play Sea of Thieves, Gears 5 online. I have no shortage of other stuff to do. DbD is not some end all. It's barely relevant. Just because it's a unique type of game doesn't mean it doesn't have competition. I went from playing about 3-4 hrs a day up til twins patch to playing only 2-3 matches a day. After trying this last night with the new HUD on my 65" tv it was impossible to tell what was going on through both matches and I have no interest in further wasting my time with this company that blatantly launches stuff EVERYONE tells them is Broke or unwanted. Like Mathew (Cote?) Can't be bothered looking all over for his name much like the awful UI famously said. " Play something else " and I will and am.

  • BaldursGate2BaldursGate2 Member Posts: 994

    Wrong, many people stop playing, maybe not forever, but for weeks or months. But new players get lured and trapped in to the game and after they realised what a steaming pile this game is, it's too late, they have allready spent their money.

  • BwstedBwsted Member Posts: 2,715

    Well, I've already stopped, but thanks for your input.

  • MeltingPenguinsMeltingPenguins Member Posts: 3,435

    I don't see a reason to play right now.

    Sure, there's some cute stuff I'd like to have on the rift, but with this match of a patch I won't be able to get there anyway. so...

    anyone up for Among Us?

  • SkerpiTwitchSkerpiTwitch Member Posts: 327

    No you didn't, you still here roaming these forums. You should not have any dbd thoughs at all when you stopped. Like i said, you'll be back

  • ExerlinExerlin Member Posts: 1,217

    I don't know about that.... The new UI is an eyesore and it's a pain to check the status of survivors and gens. The gen counter is super small now. The bars next to survivors that are hooked or in deep wounds is so small that I barely even notice them most of the time! The time it takes to get information from the UI changed from quick to slow. Everything is spread out too much, key details are simply too small, and for what? Features we have yet to see? The only new thing the UI has added are the Clown's gas colors in the bottom left, but that could have easily been added to the previous UI right next to the power icon. Sure, it wouldn't take up the ENTIRE CORNER of the screen, but it's still a brightly colored animation that is easy to glance at.

    There are only two benefits the new UI brings, and that are the hook counters and the survivor icons. If the devs wanted to have everyone's names completely visible (which is honestly not important in the slightest in the middle of a match), they could have lined it up vertically at the bottom left. Keep important information in two places, the bottom left and the bottom right, not in four places, the bottom left, bottom right, top left, and top. It is just a bad change that needs to be addressed.

    It is a pain in the ass to read it quickly and makes the gameplay more tedious. They ######### up big time. I can not recommend the game to anyone at the moment.

  • gemjasgemjas Member Posts: 105

    No, actually. I can't play it anymore. Not because of some protest, but because the new UI actually disorients me. It's uncomfortable for me to play.
