also 3 week playtest with a bonus 2+ weeks to wait on the map we are supposed to be able to play on. If it's not ready don't put it out and excite everyone to disappoint
Yeah let's not ever hold a company responsible for what they do. (Insert sarcasm). I am sorry but I am a console player and the lag is so bad. I didn't just pay 15 dollars. I have 4 other people in my house that are also console that I bought every chapter for plus some cosmetics. If i fork out that much money I expect us to be able to play. Yes I understand there will be some issues but come on.
What about those of us who have bought all the DLC?
How much are we allowed to complain? We pay them for a product and if it isn't working how much are we allowed to complain until you decide it's too much?
Most people on the forum ARE complaining about the crashes, the bugs and them not working. Do some of them need to reel it in? Yes. No one should be be insulting the devs but trying to shut down complaints based on your blanket idea of who is complaining and what they are complaining about is ridiculous.
If a "free update" made my game unplayable, am I free to complain?
Yes there is a lot of complaining and yes some people are very hard on the devs.
A lot of the complaints are valid tho, especially regarding bugs and optimization.
People care deeply for this game and want it to be:
1. Functioning (especially when they buy a brand new dlc)
I have been apart of many forums and DBD community is one of the most passionate I have seen. Yes there are a lot mean comments thrown around and those are unacceptable, but there are ton of really good critiques and suggestions from the community as well.
I am sure the bugs and such are just as frustrating for the devs as it is for us. We just don't see it.
I really wish they would host monthly community chats/ q&a. There use to be a lot of those but they have decreased recently :<
This is like any forum I have been on... People mostly come to these to complain.
Further I think it's worth mentioning that my girlfriend plays DbD on PS4 or better said, as many of you have, used to play, because now as soon as the game starts the PS overheats to the point it restarts and we clean and maintain it, just like I do my PC. However, even then, the money she paid for this product did not guarantee her entertainment without problems, which is important to say, are being worked on. Yes, you are free to express that they take too long and it's annoying, but demanding them be done faster is not helping.
I would like to also comment, with very little detail I admit, on some things:
Having a few bugs here and there does not make the game "unplayable", this word means something completely different.
Crashes and instability are unfortunate and I believe you if you say it happens to A LOT of people, but given how many still play I think it is very, very likely it's some kind of compatibility players are experiencing which is not just the devs' fault.
A lot of people seem to twist the "don't demand" "don't be rude" parts into "don't complain". If you have a better idea of how I could edit my post to reflect that better or improve it, honestly, please do let me know.
Don't try to defend BHVR. This community is full of whiney little #@$%es but there are plenty of things they are in the right to complain about. If you don't understand that then you are either new or your on BHVR's pay roll.
Is it possible a "Candyman Chapter" was postponed bc of the pandemic and due to that the twins and the trickster were released earlier than anticipated hence the bugs?
Maybe it's the fact the company as had difficulties trying to adjust to no longer working in the office together?
Nah, it's most likely bhvr dropping their standards and not the servers being overloaded with new and returning players with the popularity of Resident Evil Chapter/ Anniversary.
Anyways, I passed on "a binding of kin" "all-kill" and "Chapter XX" as I already have the best perks the game like Babysitter, Better Together, and Buckle Up but I wouldn't mind an anniversary sale.
I'm sorry that I wanna be able to enjoy and play the game I paid for.
I demand the ability to play the game that I bought!
You're allowed to complain as much as you'd like. I disagree with your assessment of the posts on the forum.
That's very justified, yes. That is not what most of the posts on the forum are complaining about.
After 3 years of a poorly performing game, 2 years of broken promises and 2 weeks of a virtually unplayable game during an event no less, no. No i wont stop demanding they fix this.
Watch these clips and try and placate my problems more
And ive got dozens of those. Its every single game
