Would you quit the game if you would lose all your progress?

TicTacTicTac Member Posts: 2,168

Everything at zero. All characters at level 1, no shards, no cosmetics, no bloodpoints, etc.

I want to switch from Ps4 to PC. But without crossprogression i would lose everything. Over 2000 hours. So i probably will still play on ps4 and quit when i dont use my ps4 anymore. So i would want to know what you would do if you would be forced to start from zero?

    Honestly, I don't know. I really enjoy this game and 3k hours of progress is a lot of time.

    It depends how would I lose the progress. Did I get BHVRed and they somehow deleted all my stuff ? If so, yes, gone forever or until I get it all back.

    Did I lose my account information and can't log back in or reclaim it in any way. I'd probably buy DBD again and play for a bit (or go crazy and start grinding).

    On the one hand it would be tragic losing all my cosmetics and progress.

    On the other i could be a bit smarter about which teachable perks to unlock and which ones you leave for after every killer has the important ones

    Really hard to say tbh but if I didn’t lose my cosmetics I bought with money probably not

    It's like making a new character from a whole different account.

    It's new experience again and it sometimes excites me.

    I'd quit if I lost progress for sure. Quit and never look back.

    But I did what you are talking about. I went from PC to PS4 as soon as it was available, so I did start over, but back then I didn't have nearly that much, I guess I had a year or two of PC stuff (I was a day 1 player)..

    Short answer, I did it on my terms. But I wouldn't never start over again now.

    No, I wouldn't quit. I already lost all my progress when I switched to PC. As long as I still want to play, I will. Even if it means starting over.

    I would most definetly quit.

    i spent a lotta money and time on this game, if i were to lose it forever i would be GONE. I would not give BHVR more money than its already been given due to people like demi giving new players hurt by matchmaking any dlc they want just so they keep playing in this toxic community (me included)

  • SeraphorSeraphor Member Posts: 3,000

    Hang in there with the PS4 until you can get a PS5. Your progress carries over.

  • LazyPaydayLazyPayday Member Posts: 420

    Yes, without hesitation would leave this game and never look back.

  • YordsYords Member Posts: 5,549

    I would still play, if you lose your progress you can get it back via customer support. If I somehow lost it all for good though? I would still play honestly.

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,578

    I've already started over willingly.

    So no.

  • SeanzuSeanzu Member Posts: 6,736

    You can be way more efficient with what you spend your points on now, you know exactly who you enjoy to play as, and exactly what you want them to wear, I feel like it wouldn't be too huge of a set back, only thing you'll lose out on totally are event cosmetics or rift charms if you care about those at all.

  • Squirrel_ThiccSquirrel_Thicc Member Posts: 2,678

    1,000% YES. I'm not rebuilding 900 hours worth of progress.

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 5,455

    I want to switch to PC, but I too am on PS4. I will never start over from zero. I am not doing that grind again, and I'm not re-purchasing all the DLC. I would absolutely quit before starting over.

    Yes, in a heartbeat. I've already had to do so once, and there's no way I'm doing it again, especially if I've lost my skins too.

    I'd probably cut my losses and move on to other games if I lost everything I'd done up to this point.

    I've been a pretty solid fan of DbD (hence why I'm still playing after almost 3 years) and there's still nothing else like it, but I don't think I'd be willing to commit the amount of time necessary just to retread things I'd already done.

  • ClownIsUnderratedClownIsUnderrated Member Posts: 1,031

    Yeah I'd be done

  • KingFrostKingFrost Member Posts: 3,014

    I switched from Switch to PS4. It was a pain getting everything back again. I don't think I could do it again. But I've already done it once. Starting over it was a bit easier, though it got hard quick when I ranked up and didn't have good perks.

  • ExorExor Member Posts: 235

    After investing 5.4k hours I doubt that I would be able to start over again and get all perks on my main survivor/all killers and P3 them. If I were to restart I would probably keep them at P0 and just get the most important perks, nothing more though.

  • Mr_KMr_K Member Posts: 7,339

    Yes, 100%.

    Losing progress in a game with 2700 hrs invested would make me uninstall forever.

  • FreudentraumaFreudentrauma Member Posts: 1,044

    It would be the final nail in the coffin for me.

  • bm33bm33 Member Posts: 5,962

    I would definitely stop playing. Too much time and money put in.

  • WitasWitas Member Posts: 457

    I would propably stop playing. 5 years and over 2000 hours is not something I'm willing to rebuild from scratch, as much as I love the game, I wouldn't do it, especially now when the game's so rocky and my passion is definitely on it's last legs when it comes to dbd.

  • Alice_pbgAlice_pbg Member Posts: 5,066

    It would take me a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time to be willing to do it again.

    And let me be clear, a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.

    I lost my save file of persona 5 (with about 40 hours of progress, which, in p5, is very little in the grand scheme of things...). Didn't touch the game again for 2 years.

    If I keep all my DLC characters and everyone else suffered the same fate? Yeah, definitely. It'd be fun to have a fresh start with everyone else.

    If I lost all my DLC, then I'm out. And if I were the only one to suffer the fate and BHVR doesn't help me get my stuff back, then I'm out.

  • JPLongstreetJPLongstreet Member Posts: 2,735

    Yep I'd be gone. I'm in the same boat as these PS4 players, there's no Cross Progression and it's not coming for my Xbox either. After thousands of hours rebuying & then regrinding everything is a dealbreaker and then some.

    I'd nope right on outta there.

  • JPLongstreetJPLongstreet Member Posts: 2,735

    I'm curious as to about how many hours you had into the game before restarting, and between what platforms did you shift?

  • ProfeziaProfezia Member Posts: 673

    I already did, though if that happened to me, I'd surely leave the game (even if I got any kinds of compensation possible).
