Waiting over 15-20 mins to play killer in high ranks. Difficulty having fun.
I submitted a ticket first in the off chance they could de-rank me, but as expected that's not an option. Anyway, 'Errol' suggested i share my thoughts here so i figured why not. Didn't want to have wasted my time typing out my thoughts about this. Speaking of wasting time typing out my thoughts, i had already attempted to post this once and then it disappeared after i made an edit for some approval bullshit. So here is my second attempt.
I have only been playing about a month or so, but i am apparently too good at killer and now i ended up 3 pips from rank 1 the other day...
The reason i am not happy with this is i have to wait at least 15-20 mins just to find a match now...I just want to queue up solo and play killer. It's a ton of fun and i have put a lot of hours in so far and unlocked every killer, however now that i can only play 2-3 matches per hour it's really become disappointing. I have to queue and then wait, and by the time i end up in a match i forgot i even queued up and feel like it catches me off guard. I have to turn the sound off in the background because i do not want to listen to killers breathing and grunting for 20 minutes.
I understand there's probably few players that end up in the red ranks which makes matchmaking slower and more difficult, but i feel somewhat punished for being too good at killer. I just want to play and have fun and kill survivors. I don't particularly enjoy playing survivor; i ultimately bought this game to play killer. I simply want to continue getting in matches in a reasonable amount of time. It kind of sucks to otherwise just let survivors win and play poorly so i can lose ranks intentionally. Not only do i have to wait long, i have to wait long so i can play poorly and not have fun in order to attempt to re gain what is apparently a privledge - to get in game faster, play normally, and have fun.
Do you have any pro tips on how to lose ranks efficiently while still giving survivors a hard time? I definitely have no intention of disconnecting. I was thinking i should just hook one and camp them the whole match until they die because i know scoring was updated so that you lose points if you camp hooks too long. Otherwise if i just run around and chase until they win they teabag the whole game and get cocky and it just feels bad, because i can't convey that i want to lose on purpose to the survivors.
Why is there no way to play solo matchmaking games without rank so i don't have to wait so long? Perhaps some sort of addon or offering that prevents rank gains? I know there is kill your friends, but i don't particularly enjoy friends and i want to play alone and get bloodpoints...I hear that ranks reset every month but it only took me like a couple weeks to get up near max rank because i didn't drop low enough the last time the ranks reset (which was the first time for me since i started playing) . I tried playing freddy but i accidentally got a pip one game.
Sometimes it is also just hard to resist killing the survivors when they are teabagging all game. In which case i end up getting too many points and not losing a rank. I really want to have fun, and i was, but at this point it is ruining the game for me because it's become a waiting game and i feel like i am being punished for playing too well, as though the devs want me to stop playing killer or something.
Thanks for reading.
