Does the community exaggerate the bugs of DBD?
I started this game a little under a year ago, and since I've started I've not encountered many bugs. When I first started in the game there was the bug where you could not move if you got downed at the corners of rocks, but since then really the worst thing I've experienced was the de-sync issue with the Twins chapter I think. It's not to say throughout the game's history that there have not been debilitating bugs en masse, but it's mostly to talk about bugs in a relatively current/current time frame of DBD. Overall for me DBD has been a pretty smooth experience.
When I see videos/posts crapping on BHVR (e.g. "i think we did a pretty good job so far 'meme' ") almost 90% of what they showcase are BS hits due to bad ping, most likely due to bad internet connection. I have really good internet and good ping and I don't encounter this often and when I do, it's very easy to tell why most times, generally due to someone's crappy console wifi or using a hotspot. Or because of their lack of understanding of hitboxes complaining about being hit by huntress hatchets when it was valid. I don't think BHVR can do much about someone having ######### ping and/or a ######### connection and it seems like people refuse to blame players for a lot of "bugs" that happen in this game.
