Anyone dreading the grind next chapter?

D3spairD3spair Member Posts: 651

With one more Killer/3 Perks and two more Survivors/6 Perks getting in the next chapter. As a guys with comeplete characters on both side, I'm gonna hate the god damn grin. Just based on experience I had my Trickters get 2.5 million BPs just to get Ruin which is badly needed in my games. With Nemesis, Jill and Leon. That takes about 15 million+ to Prestige 3 them if you have all the previous chapters or about an average of 2.5 million BPs just to get all the decent perks on them.

Can you imagine the grind then by the end of the year at this rate? BHVR address the grind for people who's buying your crap!

    The grind on characters is why I didn't even buy the last 3 chapters with iridescent shards. I have enough shards to get both the killers and the survivors but the grind for them just doesn't feel worth it.

    I was able to get Jill to 40 and Nemesis to 50 using my saved up bloodpoints, rituals, archive challenges both current and previous, and the Shrine of Secrets.

    Obviously not everyone has the time or resources to have 1700~ shards and a multitude of extra challenges done that they didnt need the bloodpoints for.

    This is pretty much the first chapter for me that I'm not dreading the grind, but that's because I haven't liked any new killers since pyramid head, so I have about 3 million BP saved with old and current archive challenges from the past year. Won't be as much of a pain in the ass when I can circumvent the 1 million BP cap and essentially go into the new chapter with 4x that. Gunna P3 Nemmy pretty quick. Probably gunna pick up Jill and Leon but I never prestige survivors because it just feels like way too much work

    That said, the grind on this game is comical. They really need to just make it so you can select which perks you want to buy from the bloodweb for 50k BP or something. Or let you disable a set amount of perks you never want to see (monstrous shrine, looking at you). Shouldn't have to spend 2 million extra BP to get a handful of perks on top of the insane grind of just getting to lvl 50 and prestiging

    The grind and repetitiveness of this game is absolutely insane. They have added no method to cut it down just a little bit. Honestly grinding doesn't really make people want to play the game more. Some people want the grind sure, but a lot of people don't. The accessibility of this game to new players is pretty much non existent due to the fact that you have to grind for thousands of hours to even remotely come close to unlocking everything.

    Now that you mention the grind I going to be a bit of a chore. I have to level up 2 survivors instead of 1 to unlock their teachable then i have to level up the survivors I main more to get the new perks on them and to teir 3. Luckily I'm a survivor main and I don't care about prestiging my characters so I won't have to work as hard to get the killer perks so it's easier but the people who do care about those things are going to have to work really hard.

    I've been saving BP through Tomes, events and redeeming redeemable codes for the last 6 months so I'm good. I kind of assumed Resident Evil would be the 5th year and luckily for me the recent chapter had nothing I cared for which made it easy to keep saving. So now I'm chilling on 7 million or so bloodpoints. For now I plan on getting P3 Nemesis and Leon which with my current stockpile should get me pretty far down that path.

    With that said though the grind is insane in this game and they don't even do double BP events anymore for god knows what reason. I feel pretty bad for newer players. I've been playing since the start so I've been able to keep up with the grind pretty easily but for newer players thats an insane mountain to climb.

    I stopped buying new characters and try to avoid unlocking new teachable perks for some time now.

    If only I knew that 70% of perks are worthless when I started playing, it would help a lot.

    Good thing they addressed the BP grind on their stream in great detail /s

    Nope, I have decided not to spend anymore money on this game until BHVR solves a lot of bug issues, optimization problems, balancing, and reduces the grind. Since it is a licensed DLC I can’t buy with in game currency, won’t have to worry about grinding out this one.

  • WeenieDogWeenieDog Member Posts: 1,995

    Bro, I haven't leveled any survivors past Ashe and I always lose enthusiasm to put points into them when I see all those lvl 1's.

  • shiffpup2shiffpup2 Member Posts: 102

    That's why I'm using my WGLF & BBQ perk sets right now. Gotta get ready.

  • Nos37Nos37 Member Posts: 2,713

    No because it's a paid DLC.

    If I had to grind out 27,000 Iri Shards for 3 new original characters I would be dreading the coming grind, seeing as I just spent a bunch on cosmetics and have very few Shards left

    You guys want everything put in front of you.You have to play the game to level up your characters.

    They should just remove perk tiers.

  • miketheratguymiketheratguy Member Posts: 2,719

    No offense but I don't understand why so many people see this game as a grind. I'm not saying that it ISN'T a grind - it is - but I mean, you get no special "win" state or super bonus for prestiging characters or making them adept or getting your favorite perks, etc., you just keep playing games and keep getting bloodpoints.

    My point is, if the main point of playing the game is to hurry through the grind then what's the point of playing at all? I don't mind the grind because to me it's a secondary component of the game, something just happens naturally on its own as a side effect from playing. I don't see a new character or perk and think "aw man, now I have to grind that", I think "hmm, maybe I'll switch to that character for a while now".

    Like I said, I'm not trying to insult anybody, I just don't understand why, if the game is all about grinding by playing, so many people are focused on the grind instead of just enjoying the play. It reminds me of the South Park Warcraft episode where the characters go through hours upon hours of grinding so that they can beat a particularly skilled player, then when they do they're like "great, now we can play".

    I play less at the moment, so right now not all my killers have tricksters perk. But normally i get the new killer p3 all perks, the perks on all other killer, the new survivor lv 40 and the perks on my main survivor before midchapter.

    With every chapter i need to spend 300k bp more (one more killer). Thats almost nothing compared to the bloodpoints i need to do for the listed things above. So i dont think new chapter would be a problem, if i would not play less.

    The extra survivor means for me only 1,3 mio BP more, so i should be able to handle that. Imo the grind is bad for new players, but its ok for players who only need to level the new chapter.

  • ElenaElena Member Posts: 2,188

    I'm only grinding Jill's bloodweb, or technically Claire's if that becomes a legendary skin c;

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 19,903

    I have 15 survivors to get all the perks on, as well as wanting to P350 all perks both Jill and Leon. I also have about 8 killers to get all perks on and wanna get Nemesis up to P350 all perks too.

    So yes, I'm really looking forward to this!!

  • JasixJasix Member Posts: 1,225

    I don't consider it a grind - maybe because I enjoy playing the game?

  • gibblywibblywoogibblywibblywoo Member Posts: 3,773

    I kinda like all the perks for once so it'll be a pain. Really hoping they just remove perk levels soon. No perks are even worth using at level 1/2 anyway.

  • OniWantsYourMacaroniOniWantsYourMacaroni Member Posts: 5,897

    It's really annoying yes,but at least we will be able to save up a ton of Anniversary Cakes

  • bigbeefynachobigbeefynacho Member Posts: 351

    Nope. I actually enjoy working for something and feeling satisfied that I completed a tough objective. But then again I grew up with games that didn't hand you ######### on a silver platter because you felt some sense of entitlement to receive something for doing little to nothing to achieve it. 😉👍

    Nah, a relaxing day or 2 and i'll have the Perks on Wraith.

  • KebekKebek Member Posts: 3,676

    No as I'll have fun doing so. I've already P3 Nemesis on the PTB and that's without almost any BP offerings or BBQ. Survivors I don't P3, just get their teachables so I'm not worried at all.

    Still, devs could do something about the grind again. It's been a while since the last grind changes and again we've gotten so many more characters that it's startint to become a problem again.

  • malloymkmalloymk Member Posts: 1,411

    Yes. When they said there were going to be two survivors, I was actually totally disappointed.

    Reduce the grind please.

  • malloymkmalloymk Member Posts: 1,411

    I'm 38. I've also played difficult games "back in my day". Too little reward for too much work in this game though. Perk levels should have been removed two years ago.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 2,846

    The only problem is the cap of 1 million BPs. I could have saved 10 millions for this chapter but have constantly to spend BPs somewhere when I don't need it. I already have all perks unlocked on all survivors and killers.
