Dead by Daylight - 2vs8 Game Mode. Streamer played 2vs8 match.

Russian streamer Hellhound made a new game mode. I thought that thing is impossible. How its works I don't know. May be he used a special game build. I would like to play it.

What do you think about that 2vs8 game mode? Can devs make 2vs8?

    Im assuming it has something to do with when the devs accidentally released the dev build with Ghost Face, other content creators are doing similar things like Prop Hunt, adding their own models in game, etc.

    If anything it can be a limited time game mode (sort of an event). Making it a permanent game mode wouldn't do well.

  • KebekKebek Member Posts: 3,676

    This is acually great idea. As much as I would like to play 2v8 from time to time, I don't think it would work as permanent mode.

    Why do people want a 2v8 mode? The game is hardly balanced at 1v4 and swf and another game mode would, at best, split the community and make survivor queue times even longer.

    It could work as a custom game mode. But like others have said, adding a public queue for this would be pure chaos and exacerbate many of DBD's issues (bugs, queue times, balance, bad teammates, etc.)

    What if there was a situation where the two killers were on comms together and using it to co-ordinate their actions? Could be a balance issue, I'm not sure the survivors would be happy about that

    2vs8 would only be fun in a custom game and it feels kinda gimmicky. You don't want the SWF equivalent: KWF; killers being a killer duo on comms. You could coördinate everything and zone the survivors which would mess badly with the balance. An 8 person swf also sounds horrible vs 2 solo killers.

    It should be a limited time game mode during certain events like ARAM in League of Legends.

    people want something new out of the DBD formula after half a decade of the same stuff

    May be devs don't want to make that game mode, because it'll increase load on their dedicated servers.

  • Zeon_99Zeon_99 Member Posts: 263

    This would NEVER work. It would split the already bad queue times and that's assuming that all 10 players stay in the match while it loads. Also it'd be another thing devs would have to balance and they can barely change the numbers on a handful of perks in a year, let alone two different game modes.

  • MysterynovusMysterynovus Member Posts: 318

    Yeah, I'd rather the option exist in custom for people who would want to try it with little risk

  • ukenickyukenicky Member Posts: 1,328

    Ngl that looks so unfun lol

    It would be cool to team up with another killer since that role gets lonely at times but idk.. Otherwise it seems like it wouldn't be that enjoyable in literally every other aspect and 2 killers would be kinda broken

  • Mister_HoldoutMister_Holdout Member Posts: 3,144

    I've always wanted a two killer game mode.

    Maybe the devs at some point could do a special event and let the community test out a two killer game mode. I think it would be fun.

  • MbarrMbarr Member Posts: 61

    This looks like so much fun, I'd honestly play the game way more if this was a thing.

  • MoodyyMoodyy Member Posts: 82

    look at billys animations :(

  • Mat_SellaMat_Sella Member Posts: 2,929

    please let this idea die...

  • _HN__HN_ Member Posts: 385

    Could be fun as en event mod, but there's litterally zero way that thing is even remotely close of being balanced.

  • danielmaster87danielmaster87 Member Posts: 6,151

    I was opposed to it before, but seeing it in action looks too fun. Let's do it. One thing I'm afraid of though is the strength of STBFL.

    I would put the topic a little differently. At the moment, the game has an established 1x4 mode for 4 years, which is the main direction of the development of the idea of ​​the game "Dead by Daylight". But in this example, you can see that custom modes from the community can be supported by the game engine and allow 10 people to register in one lobby.
    This fact indicates that it will not be difficult for developers to introduce such a regime, even for a limited period (Example: The anniversary of the game is 5 years). 
    In conclusion, I will summarize all of the above, the idea is good if it is finalized, but it is worth clarifying that this is not what the game needs in the first place, now the game is full of technical problems that have been accumulating for 4 years and spoil the experience after a long stay in this game , then I want to highlight an even bigger problem, namely 0 work com. managers, because in order to get a clear answer, you have to write to all sources (technical support, com. managers, developers mail, social networks). And after that, they will answer you in a week and write a bonal paste - "Contact those support" (which does not give answers)))). The last 2 things are more problematic than the lack of a regime.

  • The 23 gens 🤣 its the balance the killer mains have always wanted!

  • Lazerboy88Lazerboy88 Member Posts: 517

    I want it mainly because would love some kind of duo mode for killers, killing survivors with a buddy would be sweet.

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 9,611

    In nearly 5 years the devs haven't been able to properly balance their base 1v4 game so no I don't want a 2v8.

    Lets finally get the base game fixed before we think about other modes. With how many issue the games has just in its current state another game mode should be the dead last thing to even think about.

  • ALostPuppyALostPuppy Member Posts: 3,398

    Yeah Idk when this was made but this is the 2nd video I've seen of a custom DbD mode that had Billy's old animations. Maybe it's an old build of the game, but the fact that they still exist and BHVR could revert them at any time is so infuriating.

  • IWasLeft2DieIWasLeft2Die Member Posts: 2,004

    Some killer match ups would be just not fun to play against as survivors

    such as

    Leatherface and Billy insta downs for days

    Legion and oni assuming legions hits would make blood for oni

    Spirit and nurse being everywhere

    Clown and really any of the fast killers

    Hag and pig you'll basically never get the traps off of you.

    Doctor and spirit with doctor showing spirit everyone

    These are just some that initially come to mind and this doesn't account for perks that would make it even less fun for survivors.

    Damn, this is perfect, it is not difficult to implement and here is the example, the developers have to do this game mode, it would be entertaining and competitive.
