The base lore for the entity and certain things are meaningless
Okay at this point DBD lore has no effect on the game and liturally is better if you just make something up.
I mean DBD has its problems that can be worked and sorted out, but probably never will.
(Lest year the nightmare is going to be more sucsesful then DBD)
But the lore is something that needs a rework or something more, we need diolouge and interactions, more then screams grunts and other noises.
(Can we get voiced diolouge from characters reacting to things, like action commends, hiding in lockers, being chased/injured? If the killer runs stridor they will get to here these things and thus make stridor stronger)
Maybe make a kinda story mode you can play on your own (maybe with your friends too) :
You pick a survivor/killer, you get cutscenes, then while playing the game doing gens/hunting, you then get choices that effect what happens next. Now I'm not saying go full fledged until dawn ( Until dawn the next DLC survivor, killer, and cosmetics)
Just make it so the characters say stuff and you stop what your doing when it happens.
And doing gens isn't your only job, maybe the next match (depending on who you are) will have different objectives.
And eventually, you either escape/kill everyone or you fail and so the cycle repeats (NOTE: if you do fail you can try again, but after a certain time)
Not only that, you could make it so you could aquire legacy this way (after completing all the levels of difficulty and during an annual event) and other cosmetics that were "if you didn't get it, you never will, unless you hack"
NOTE: if you play killer you play alone
If you play survivor, you can choose to invite your friends to help out (but you can't unlock cosmetics)
Certain objectives and challenges in the game mode are timed,
Now I bet some of you are like:
Why would they waste their time on this instead of fixing bugs, balencing, and problems with the game?
The Devs can take a break from working on a doomed game mode, and work on something that doesn't have anything toxic.
Unless they are going to rework big parts of the game, I don't see why they can't do it.
Also in kill your friends, can we also have it so up to 8 people can play survivors and we can have 4 people play killers?
I'm not a programmer, but I don't think it would be that hard to make it so 1 killer/survivor is the real host and if they dc the whole thing ends.
Of course there are draw backs I know, but I'm not the only one who feels this way right?
