What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear/think of "Old Dbd"?

For me it's Nurse and Billy being the two most played killers and pretty much the only killers you'd see at red ranks.

    Hide and seek. If you're caught you're dead.


    Nowadays, killers have more and more ways to find survivors, the emblem system promotes chases over stealth, and your teammates will rat you out in an instant if you so much as think about crouching to hide somewhere.

    Meanwhile, if you're caught you're injured, and if you're injured you're Superman and able to loop the killer for another 3 gens before being downed.

    Weirdly lit maps.

    Pre-buff Doc, Bubba, Wraith.

    Billy being an actual strong killer.

    Old Freddy.

    Blight not existing.

    A whole bunch of op perks and items.


    And a bunch of P3 Claudette's imitating Occido.

    Ah yes, those creatures.

    My first ever game was against some of those Claudette's.

    They are why I still despise Claudette's

    Of all things it's actually the moonlight offerings.

    Both the Blendette with darker light on dark maps stereotype, and just how wonderful some maps (like Haddonfield) looked with brighter lightning. They were cool and I liked the offerings, but I understand why they were retired.

    I prefer not to think about old DBD.

    I get more riled up than a perfume seller remembering his old pirate life in some 2000 game about monkeys and islands.

  • RenAmamiyaRenAmamiya Member Posts: 848

    Red ranks actually having good survivors due to bigger rank reset.

    Myers being considered a top tier killer.

    Old DS...

  • GreyBigfootGreyBigfoot Member Posts: 584

    Sabotage from before patch 3.6 (Chains of Hate chapter)

    I didn't play back when hooks were forever broken, but I do remember when you could still bring a hook to 99% and that kind of sabo.

  • FreudentraumaFreudentrauma Member Posts: 1,044

    The horrible pallette vacuum and the times self caring in a corner was a completely normal phenomenon^^

  • Cornpopers_EvanCornpopers_Evan Member Posts: 2,428

  • PepsidotPepsidot Member Posts: 1,277

    I always imagine the image of looking down from old bloodlodge at the immense amount of pallets on the map.

  • SirCrackenSirCracken Member Posts: 1,016

    I am reminded of the post I spent 5 hours creating about Old DBD that was deleted from the forums...

    I still have to remake it from scratch :/

  • HeartboundHeartbound Member Posts: 3,256

    Sabo squads with hooks that don't regenerate. Killer is usually Hillbilly with Nurse sprinkled in. Healing is much stronger. Claudette will always play the darkest moonlight offering and you will not see her even if she's out in the open. Killer could Mori you on first down.

    Honestly I kind of miss it. Now the game is a lot more sporty but the original game was what drew me in. Didn't have the foresight to do a Legacy outfit grind though.

  • DabihwowDabihwow Member Posts: 3,409

    They deserve to be hooked and sacrificed to ur lord the entity

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 4,463

    Thinking of my first excursions into killer, seeing people in lockers with all-seeing wraith, always running nurse's on doc bc you could see the aura of people snapping out of it etc

  • NebulaNebula Member Posts: 471

    Hatch standoffs that were pure tests of willpower

    HybridPanda, the excellent YouTuber that he was.

    Also that it felt fresh, but not without faults such as insta-gen and the impossiblw to escape bear-trap scenario.

  • WeederickWeederick Member Posts: 1,065
