See when you keep throwing out cosmetics and new content but have a whole player base suffering from serious performance issues and are almost completely silent it doesn't look good. It makes said player base feel like they don't care and are just trying to get money. The silence is causing more problems at this point than it is helping. IMO
A game that you purchase, can buy cosmetics, can buy a battle pass, can buy DLCs, can buy individual characters, has zero excuse for the current state it is in in terms of optimization.
Your not wrong
I don't care what you've said to me already and I know what Mandy said, however that doesn't change the fact that it's taken 2 years.
I'm sure its not an easy thing to do
No one said it's easy. But it was released on console in a bad state. It shouldn't have been sold at all. They pushed it out instead of optimizing it and making sure it performed well, and years later not only have they still not done it but it's gotten worse.
The state it's been in on Switch from day one is abysmal and they should be embarrassed that they charged money for it.
The last couple of patches seemed to fix a lot of FPS issues I was having. It doesn't feeze as much as it did. They are working on it. It's just taking a while. I'm sure they want it fixed just as much as you guys do.
Don't forget that they still sell broken cosmetics without any warning prior to purchase and refuse to rerelease Rift content unless it can be sold in a complete set for maximum price. So even those things are taking advantage.
For an analogy, say you want your car fixed. You take it to the shop, and they say "Sure, we can fix this. We'll call you when it's done."
It has now been two and a half years, you've given them your money, and they still haven't fixed your car.
We understand that it takes time, but two things have become abundantly clear.
One, they were almost certainly not working on Console Optimization in March of 2019.
Two, this fix will take time that many players are not going to be willing to give them.
Are the devs even listening at this point? I can't be civil when they choose to prioritize pumping out unfinished and buggy content instead of repairing and balancing all the content they still need to. And now they refuse to even acknowledge that console is still broken
That last part is completely false.
Mandy has been here and has assured as that they are WELL aware.
So they've made some small acknowledgement in a forum. Let me clarify. There has been no true announcement, not on stream that I've seen, definitely not on Twitter or in PTB or Patch Notes. There has been no update as to what they plan to do about it either. It's near radio silence.
They have said they are working on a fix.
Go and check it if you don't believe me.
You have a link? Not saying I don't believe you, just haven't found anything myself, and I've been looking. They put out their supposed "fix" which didn't do much of anything and I haven't heard a word since
If only their words had any meaning after all the empty promises.
I don't even know how you guys take them seriously at this point. I don't believe anything they say.
Please don't forget that this forum is our Official platform, just as much as Twitter and that I am an official representative of bhvr - so yes, the things that I confirm here (on this very thread in fact) is official information.
Patch Notes are related to the content in the patch, it does not cover known issues from previous patches so it would not have been mentioned in that. And on Twitter we have responded to questions from players about this issue also.
Alright, it's just hard to find anything is all. Thank you for confirming
Hey thanks Mandy your awesome. We appreciate your info
Holy hell how much freezing on rpd against huntress my previous game.
This is beyond a joke at this point. Seriously. There is no way they will ever make it up to us for enduring this nor they care but I am slowly losing the will to support this game any more. I might not buy anything ever again.
Didn't Plague release in March of 2019? I remember they heavily downgraded console graphics when they released her and it seems like a lot of people said the game was a lot smoother at that time. I could be completely wrong, though.
Prior to maybe Legion or Plague the game ran at 15-20 FPS but it never dipped.
Afterwards, it ran at 30 but dropped to 10 or froze completely
I remember this patch, it improved performance very slightly but it was short lived.
I have been having so much freezing against Huntress on any map, some worse than others but no matter what nonstop freezes anytime she grabs a hatchet or fully winds up. Even get the super fun freezes where I'm running one direction but after freeze I'm going different direction. I think some Huntresses know grabbing the hatchet screws up survivors performance because I've had a few start spamming grabbing a hatchet and canceling while in a chase. I had 3 Huntress matches in a row one night, I stopped playing because I couldn't put up with the freezes any more.
Try crossplay off, I usually have better experience both roles. Wait times are not bad but killers dodging a lot piss me off tbh so I often keep crossplay on surv and disable it for the killer.
I am ps4 eu btw.
Edit: What is weird to me tho on crossplay off and forgot to mention is some people still using dh or perks/killers that freeze the game, not just for others but them too.
I wish there was some awareness on it so we could have more enjoyable games with cp off. But considering how toxic the community is they would probably use it even more even if it messes them up.
I have crossplay off, turned it off after first day they started it because even then the game performance felt so much worse than it already did. I can't imagine how bad it would be with it on now. I'm on ps4 on NA servers and waits are definitely better with crossplay off, I think because pretty decent amount turned it off for both sides. I don't see too much dodging, maybe one or two killers a session but it's really not enough for me to turn crossplay on.
I think players use the perks that trigger performance issues because it's something they can control. Like a survivor using DH knows the game will freeze so they're prepared for the freeze where as the killer and other survivors it's an unexpected freeze. Same for killers using Sloppy, they'll take the freeze because it'll screw over other side too and atleast they are controlling when that freeze happens.
So you had 3 huntresses in a row on ps4. Damn.
For me it is not always bad against her but this one on rpd takes the cake. I think it was the worst experience I had in a while. She wasn't ever near me and I would basically freeze for longer than usual multiple times just walking. It was worse than before that "fix".
I honestly can't remember the time I played any game in such state. Probably never on any console.
This is a bad joke.
Honestly I think its rpd does it period I constantly have issues on that map more often then any other map
Yeah rpd is definitely an issue. And when you combine issues sometimes you get a jackpot like I did.
I had to stop playing for today after that.
Before the RE chapter I had no performance issues against Huntress unless she ran a perk like Sloppy. After RE chapter started getting performance issues against her and they've only gotten worse in each patch since.
