Did Devs play killer?

"For some time, The Nightmare has stood out from the crowd with a particularly high kill rate, averaging roughly 3 kills per match."

Do you know killers sometimes have ranking +0 result even if they have 4 kill in this game, so that mean if they let one person escape, they usually get the ranking +0, or even -1.

You don't remake the unfair killer ranking system, but you still want to make the killing rate to 50%? fair? bullshit.

Devs never play killer.

Come to Korea server* and play killer to red rank 1, and then talk the balance, devs have no any qualification to make balance, even they are not red rank killer in any server.

*Korea server has the most frequency of gen rush, camp and tunnel, both survivors and killers are strong, this is the hardest server.

    The only reason to care about ranki g is if you are doing it for achievements.

    On the matter of ranking tho...

    It depends on how the game goes not just number of kills. You need to get multiple hooks on people and keep gens up for a while. Kill people to fast without spreading hooks will result in a brutal or displeased ending. The same can be said for only getting hooks/kills in the end game. Sometimes you have to baby the game if you want to pip up. If you one shot down everybody your chaser isn't going to be great. The ranking system is kinda there to entice people who care about rank to play more "fair/fun" for the other side.

    I genuinely don't think the nerf will do much. They just aren't really nerfing him in a way that makes a lot of sense, given the issues Survivors have fighting him.

  • zeldazelda Member Posts: 28

    Cannibal, Hillbilly, or Shape(he is harder), these one hit down killer also has the same problem for Chaser emblem, when they kill survivors fast, the ranking may be +0.

  • NoOneKnowsNovaNoOneKnowsNova Member Posts: 2,281

    I can easily pip most games as Cannibal while joking around, let alone playing properly. Just because he has one hit downs doesn't mean its hard to get a pip with him.

    Besides ranking doesn't matter too much in current dbd.

    Also, regarding the post, do you have any proof of your server having "the most" genrushing, camping and tunneling or are these just claims your came up with on the spot.

    Korea players want to win the game, not just fun, so they need to gen rush, camp and tunnel, and they accept them, so this is why the server is harder than Europe and America, but Europe and America always hate camp and tunnel.

    Chinese have no their server, they are playing P2P with long time, so they usually use VPN to travel global server, they experience different server.

    The article was written by a famous Chinese killer main player, it is talking about server.

    He think the player strength (gen rush, loop skill, camp, tunnel) order is;

    Korea->Japan->Chinese (P2P)-> Singapore (Asia)-> Europe and America.

    However, this article is before the console crossplay version, Japan server are easier now because there has so many console player.

    Actually, bug factory should has data about camp, tunnel frequency and avg time in one round (gen rush) for all server, but they never publicize the data, so I need to rely player experience to evaluate different server.

  • zeldazelda Member Posts: 28

    Oh my god, the system has eaten my reply,

    Korea players play game not for fun, they need win, so Korea killer prefer camp and tunnel, but they also control gen when there are 3 gens with 1 hooked survivor, and survivor need to gen rush and better loop skill to win the killer. They accept camp, tunnel, and gen rush, also accept NOED.

    Europe and America players hate NOED, camp and tunnel, some killer accept the stupid rules which is made by survivors, so why Europe and America servers are easlier.

    Chinese has no their server, they usually use VPN to travel different server, there is a famous killer main player wrote a article to talk about servers.

    The average player strength of global server:

    Korea->Japan->Chinese (P2P) ->Singapore (Asia) ->Europe and America

    However, this article was written before console crossplay, Japan server are easier now due to console player join, and Chinese player has no more P2P now, they join Singapore server.

    I try to google about Korea server, there is feedback of someone played the Korea server.

    Hahaha yeah they do play killer.

    In kyf 😅😂

    But yeah no matter what server, the balance is broken everywhere.

    I have had several games where I got a 4k with 32k points and what did I get for is?

    A blackpip 😂

    So having a "perfect" game (looking at kills and points) is considered as a draw? 🤷‍♂️

    Unfortunately they have little knowledge about their own game, let alone about the balance

  • ZozzyZozzy Member Posts: 4,759

    They clearly don't since they actually put Trixter in the live game.

  • zeldazelda Member Posts: 28

    50%~75% killing rate, killer rank -1 ~ +0.

    Survivors cannot escape , survivor are unhappy,

    Killers cannot rise their rank, killer are unhappy.

    No one happy, but bug factory is happy.

    Remake the killer ranking system as soon as possible, don't let red rank survivor meets the green and yellow rank killer every night.

  • ShroompyShroompy Member Posts: 3,362

    Any killer that just kills all survivors within 5 minutes of the game starting will not pip, not just them. Just like when survivors finish the gens in 5 minutes and leave, they dont gain any pips either

    Pips and ranking in this game are kind of a joke though so I really shouldn't worry about it, unless youre trying to go for the achievements

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,754

    I'm not gonna go to the Korean server and have a balance between 190 ping and 400

    Peanits I know for a fact plays killer, same with Not_Queen, McCote does play DBD as well but doesn't stream it anymore I believe

  • SwampofferingSwampoffering Member Posts: 384

    The last time that a dev played DBD, a Korean premade stomp him and call him Noob Killer at the end Game chat.

    In that moment, they buffed hag trap speed and nerfed insta flashlights.

    So no, they do not play their game, they "Balance" the Game following the cries of 1000 hours premades survivors, not Fog whisperers or veteran players

  • Northener1907Northener1907 Member Posts: 3,012

    Nah, they have not any idea about playing killers.

  • SwampofferingSwampoffering Member Posts: 384

    That "Noob Killer" at the end game chat destroyed Mathew World xD

  • Warcrafter4Warcrafter4 Member Posts: 2,917

    They do have a dev who plays killer...

    Its Almo... You know the guy who nerfed huntress' lullaby then tried to gaslight the community by saying it never said it worked on all skill checks(Despite saying it worked on all skill checks prior to the nerf).

  • Dennis_van_eijkDennis_van_eijk Member Posts: 1,564

    Hahaha yeah i don't think he was smiling after that anymore 🤣.

    That's why they only play against lower ranks so they feel like they're doing a good job and can avoid another embarrassment like that hag game 😜😬

    But on a serious note.

    It would a very wise decision from them to have a good talk with higher skilled people from dbd.

    Preferably people who play both sides, or an equal amount of people who play just killer or survivor.

    That way they will get a better understanding of the game and it's balance.

    And can make better adjustments accordingly.

    But that's just my opinion and I would be very surprised if the devs actually do something like that, cause I don't believe that that will ever happen.

  • ClownIsUnderratedClownIsUnderrated Member Posts: 1,031

    They focus way to much on STATISTICS, also if a killer gets a 3K or 4K way to much then that means they overperform and need a massive nerf. That's the reason why Billy got a massive rework, which still to this day nobody likes.

    Waiting for the rat liver logic to come to trapper. "We noticed trapper bag was used in 90% of trapper matches so we made it so instead of holding 2 traps and starting with 1 you start with 1 more and can hold 1 more" (reverting the buff from long ago(

  • SodaheadSodahead Member Posts: 99

    I know of two devs that play killer on twitch.

    They both camp and tunnel while survivors are on the forum saying please fix this. LMAO

  • SwampofferingSwampoffering Member Posts: 384

    They have Fog whisperers, But they dont listen them or their advices.

    We have a spanish Fog whisperer, main survivor with +8000 hours played with a lot of good ideas to improve the Game, and BHVR just ignore him.

  • ShadowRainShadowRain Member Posts: 607

    Obviously don’t because they wouldn’t nerf already bad killers or keep releasing weak new killers

  • OldHunterLightOldHunterLight Member Posts: 3,000

    I really don't want to be that guy but peanits is actually pretty decent and does play killer a lot.

    The other dev that I know that plays killer........ Not going to point out names but facecamped an OoO with an Irri hatchet after telling us regular players to just "ignore them"

  • Dennis_van_eijkDennis_van_eijk Member Posts: 1,564

    Yup and that is one of the thing I agree on with Tru3.

    If they go of statistics, then where is the buff to nurse?

    Cause statistically she is under performing and thus in for a big buff 🤷‍♂️

    They can't use statistics for 1 er and throw them out the window for another.

  • ClownIsUnderratedClownIsUnderrated Member Posts: 1,031

    Also where's the Pig nerf, STATISTICS say she's overperforming.

  • Dennis_van_eijkDennis_van_eijk Member Posts: 1,564

    Yeah that's one of them too.

    I just think they have a clue what they do or what they want.

    I think they just look at killers they don't like, especially with the comment on of the devs made during a Q&A about the doc.

    Where he literally said "and then I was thinking which killer do i not like to go against?"

    I don't mind devs aren't that good at their own game, but you can't make changes to your game just for you to get a bit easier.
