Is anyone changing their main due to cosmetics?

    Oh really? That's a relief lol...I thought it strange as she wasn't even on the block to BE changed.....and my god....her face right now...it COULDN'T have possibly passed by the devs with a thumbs up. Then again...look at OG Quentin and Nea. Hmmm

    ANYWAY, that is good to hear!

    still hoping they do another pass on Claire. At least they fixed her zombie eyes...

  • MrOogieboogieMrOogieboogie Member Posts: 70

    Yeah Claire looks BETTER now, but could still use some tweaks to look more like...well Claire...this isn't a Lori situation where they need permission to use someone's real features XD

    Claudette is such a cutie or was. I haven't looked at her since the update tbh I don't think, not up close. But yeah I rock the no glasses curls she had in her silver dress outfit and her school suit hairs. So I'm prob in the same boat.

    Ooof that sucks. What Kate head changed that went sour?

    The ponytails have been ugly. I think the one black lipstick head has better hair now but they took away the eyeshadow?

    All of Kate's other hairs are still the same other than . . . the Pigtails? But I like the change on those. But I like a mini-bang.

    Moved to Yun-Jin and Nea :)

  • kate_best_girlkate_best_girl Member Posts: 2,148

    Speak for yourself I haven't touched Kate since the rework lol

  • UseTheValveUseTheValve Member Posts: 338

    I already mained Kate,Yui,P3 cheryl,Meg.

    Meg looks awesome now. I don’t like what they did to kate face tho, i have to agree with everyone on that.

    On a side note i’ve now purchased 3 cosmetics for Nea and i’m getting all my perks on her, she looks good now, finally.

    I'm not playing Claudette anymore lol. I like the nose and eye changes, but her hair and maybe something else is bothering me.

  • FancyMrBFancyMrB Member Posts: 1,191

    I enjoy the new models. I can see why people are upset though with cosmetics and such. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so if they don't like the model anymore all those cosmetics may seem wasted.

    They looks like more real, interesting, humans now. Not just shallow cartoon stereotypes. Claudette is my main and I love they did with her ^^ Kate is my second most played survivor and I enjoy her new look. She looks like she has more personality now ^^

    I'm a Jane main,the only thing that concerns me about my girl Jane is her eyes and her make-up plus her smile is barely noticeable..plus when you equipped an item on her,her facial animation becomes blank which she looks very angry but once you unequipped the item,she goes back to her usual facial animation..

    Also in match,especially when your survivor is hooked..once someone comes to unhook you,your survivor's facial expression/animation looks so awful and scary..here's a screenshot of what Jane looked like if you haven't seen/noticed while you be in matches. 😥😭

    Still getting use to her new look which I'm alright with but I just hope they're fixing the survivor's faces and animation.

  • Name_UnavailableName_Unavailable Member Posts: 468

    I play most Ace, Kate, Yui, Jill and Cheryl. The only one survived this is Cheryl so i will foucs on her. Even tho she lacks the skins sadly.

  • justbecausejustbecause Member Posts: 1,521

    I think ppl are overreacting about it her face looks awesome still and don't we main someone because of their character and lore (back-story) not just how they look? I guess different standards

  • SherrySherry Member Posts: 225

    I agree with you on the pigtail look. I think the new one looks much better. The one you like now on Kate, is the one I was talking about. Someone posted a picture here: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/comment/2399197#Comment_2399197

    I really liked the old one. Oh well. Not as big a deal to me though, as Claudette. She was my favorite.

  • ProfoundEndingProfoundEnding Member Posts: 2,298

    I've ALWAYS done this, even before the rework. My current mains are Meg, Feng, Kate, Jane, and Yun. They're all Prestige 3 and I switch depending on what outfit I want to wear at the moment.

  • Hex_LlamaHex_Llama Member Posts: 1,398

    I haven't dropped anyone -- I've added a few to the regular rotation who weren't there before. Kate was always one of my mains, and I've still been playing her. I actually like the changes they made to one of her head cosmetics, by reducing the amount of makeup. I preferred how she looked before, don't get me wrong, but she's still playable for me.

    The one thing I don't like is that there seems to be a move toward making the hair look good at Ultra and... kind of not seeming to care how it looks on Low. I've never heard of anyone playing this game on anything other than Low.

    I mean... Yeah. When I first played this game, I latched onto Kate as my main survivor. I found her super neat and the songbird look really fit her. But now? She looks less songbird and more.. idek what kind of bird. I was very disappointed with her rework, it's not my Kate. It just doesn't feel the same. At all. I've played her a bit to see if I could get used to it but no such luck. I also agree her cosmetics are very hit or miss. I don't know what it is but lately all her cosmetic releases have been very meh or just mega misses. I don't like the Greek one at all. I agree when someone said she looks like a housewife of New Jersey. Or Palm Beach. Not my taste.

    I'm shallow, if a survivor isn't visually appealing to me or if I'm not interested in their licensed lore I'm not interested. The remodels changed a lot in terms of my survivor choices when it went live.

    With that said, these days I mostly play / main Claire, Elodie (but only the reindeer onesie Elodie), Nancy, Meg and Quentin. Sometimes Cheryl. I used to main Kate but for now I've retired her which sucks because I spent a ton of money on her. I also used to play Dweet but since his remodel, his hair really just says no for me lol idk he looks weird. Luckily I only bought one cosmetic for him so no real loss comes out of that.

    I'm absolutely in love with Quentin and Meg's reworks though. Meg just looks so much smoother and Q's glow up? *Chefs kiss* and yes, I did play Quentin a bit before the rework but admittedly not a lot. Now? Def my fave male survivor beside Tapp & Chris. Thank God he got the glow up because it hurt me how goblinish he looked compared to his on screen counterpart. You know the survivor is a true golum when even the actor was displeased with his looks but rest assured Mr. Gallner, a golum he is no longer.

    I got off topic but tldr; yes I've changed mains and I've retired Kate because I do not like her rework. ✌️ #NotMyKate.

  • ViciusaurusViciusaurus Member Posts: 185

    I'm a Felix main, but I've def picked up on Jake and Nea since their rework. I think they look much better now

  • KweenPleaseKweenPlease Member Posts: 266

    Ah yeah. I used to love the goth head. I love Tiffany from Bride of Chucky.

    It looks so poop now, partly due to her face change. Like the hair itself looks better ( can't see it in that picture ) but all her waves and curls are smoother and not fried and crispy looking. It just looks softer and more dimensional.

    But while you can see eyeshadow on the map it looks like they left her eyes bald AF at campfire. Like she needs some lashes or something.

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    Nea has always had the best cosmetics for an edgy goth/emo type girl. I just found her original face to be far too harsh. I don't exactly think she's pretty now but she's a lot more feminine and on certain heads she looks a lot better to me than Kate's botched rework face so... Here we go together, I guess! I'd love to see if you put together any great Nea outfit combos!

    My biggest issues with Kate's rework are her puffier cheeks, her miniscule mouth, the massive bridge of her nose now. Her nose is an inverted triangle now which combined with her tiny mouth and her visible front teeth she has a very rodent-like appearance to me. I told a friend of mine she looks like Taylor Swift and a mouse cartoon character mix. 😥

    Flower in the Dark is absolutely one of her best. The head and top from it paired with her original denim shorts is a very cute look and is what I used to use the most for sure. And I'm with you on her Goddess one. I actually like the hair (probably because it covers most of her botched face) and her blue liner, but I'm reeeeally iffy on her dress. And the fact that you can't break the pieces up is a hard pass from me.

    Kate's outfits are something else for sure. Tokyo Headliner is rough. The rockabilly one has a cute top but even then there are things I want to tweak on it. She has another one, I think it's called Moonlight Rider or something, it's the one with the nose piercing and the white hair which is cute. The pants and head on it work really well with other cosmetics in my opinion.

    But now all I see when I look at the vast closet of cosmetics I have on her is wasted money because I highly, highly doubt she'll get reworked... ☹️

    Edit: Grammar fix.

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    Like I said in my original post beauty is very subjective and I'm genuinely so jealous of anyone who likes her rework. 😅I really wish I could relate to that because I've spent a great deal of money on Kate.

    The specifics of what I don't like are... (quoting from another post of mine) "My biggest issues with Kate's rework are her puffier cheeks, her miniscule mouth, the massive bridge of her nose now. Her nose is an inverted triangle now which combined with her tiny mouth and her visible front teeth she has a very rodent-like appearance to me. I told a friend of mine she looks like Taylor Swift and a mouse cartoon character mix. 😥"

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! I had the same head that you were talking about with Claudette, I think! It's a silver dress with some odd choices in long strips beneath? I have the gold variant from a previous Rift and I had that paired with the last Rift outfit (the yellow jacket and sweatpants) and while I've never been a Claudette main I thought she looked cute for when I needed to play as her as a challenge. When I went to check out how she looked I was... Surprised to say the least. They botched her really badly. Claudette, Kate, and Yui got the worst of it in my opinion. Some characters like David, Jake, and Nea look much better so it's a shame that it wasn't a consistent upgrade for all.

    It's so frustrating to have spent the money on the outfits. I mean $5-$10 per outfit isn't cheap if you have 3+ outfits, in my opinion. I've probably spent $60+ just on Kate in order to continue to support for the game and now it feels like... I hate to say 'wasted' because I still love the game and have no qualms with spending money on it but... Ugh.

    Zarina's noises are rough. Iron Will is a must when playing her in my opinion. I feel like new Zarina looks like she aged up 15 years and hasn't slept in just as many.

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    Did they remove Freddy's claw marks on his P3? If so that is an absolute travesty. I think that they could have reworked Quentin and improved him but kept the sleepy look which as you said was his whole character, but now he just looks like a very average high schooler to me.

    I'm saddened to hear that you're playing less DbD! You've been such a constant on these forums that I hope you're not leaving the community or game, I always enjoy your posts!

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    This is a fantastic point. It's not even just that I find her face really offputting to look at, it's that she doesn't look like Kate anymore. Kate is supposed to look softer and more conventionally beautiful. She's literally an international celebrity. Of all the characters to make look harder and gritty that is not the one.

    Like you said those descriptions are charitable at best. I think 'rodent-like' and 'ugly' are more fitting, but beauty is subjective.

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    I'm a product of the 90's so I can relate to some degree with that as well! It is sad to see things change or degrade in quality, but change is inevitable in all things. With DbD the old characters did need a graphics rework to be brought into the same quality of the newer characters. What people are upset about is that it was less of an upgrade and more of an entire rework into something different.

    I've been reading people's posts and I don't think anyone here is saying it's the end of the world. What I said (as the OP) and other people are talking about are their frustrations with having spent money on something to then feel like these changes were so drastic that they are no longer getting what they paid for. And we are talking about who we are switching to to replace the mains that feel ruined to us.

    I don't think anyone is 'obsessed' with their characters - this is a forum dedicated to this hobby and past time that people invest hundreds or thousands of hours into as well as money. I doubted anyone in this thread is having this conversation in person with strangers or rambling about this offline. This is just the place to vent these frustrations and to seek solidarity with people who also care about this game. Some attachment is to be expected! 😊

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 7,098

    Yes, they did. His P3 was easily the best in the entire game, and now it is garbage. Quentin is not Quentin anymore.

    And thank you so much for your kind words, my friend. Someone liking my posts is not something that I see every day. Sadly, when it comes to the game itself I believe my time is past. Not the happiest outcome for someone who has been surviving and killing in the Fog since 2018, but if DBD will never return to be the game I once loved then I have no reason to stay.

    However, I can assure you that I will not leave the Forums, or the community.

  • Kate_Main_01Kate_Main_01 Member Posts: 504

    You're so welcome! I have always appreciated how you seem to try to bridge the gap between Killers and Survivors and are a positive, helpful, and informative source here. I'm glad to know that you're going to stay aboard the forums and while I don't wish to derail this thread too much by asking about what is removing you from the game I will say that I hope that future changes will bring you back. We've both been around for about the same amount of time so we know this game has highs and lows!

    It will get better!
