Do Killers find the new MMR fun?

DeshDesh Member Posts: 1,118

Killer main here:

Been playing the MMR for a while now and though seemingly the MMR is working since I am now paired more often with skilled Survivors or SWF's, I'm honestly not having that much fun. I'm extremely happy that I'm not playing against a bunch of baby survivors who die within the first 2 mins with no gens done. But trying to play casually just feels impossible. I have to actually try and sweat if I want to take down a team before they get 4-5 gens done within 4 minutes. Not really much time to play or experiment with new builds without getting absolutely smashed.

Anyone else feeling the same?

    I have the best of both worlds. If I want to chill , I have plenty of low mmr killers. If I want a challenge, I can pick Freddy. So yeah, I kind of like that.

    Not exaggerated, Survivors average over the gaeme in ten minute on Japan and Korean severs.

    Survivor like work monster rush gen and rush gen.

    I dont know survs thinking.

    Is it fun?

    I like it a lot, I play casually and I get matched up with players who still challenge me and make the game fun. I finally feel like I don't have to always pick the killers I'm insanely good at, I can just have fun being bad.

    I'm not sure how I feel about it. On brand new killers I feel it doesn't even factor in that. I get matches against sweat squads where I barely got 1k. On killers I play a lot and it has data for my rating it's the same as before sbmm. If I prestige a killer I use frequently it till puts me against high mmr. I have 3 friends that uninstalled the game since sbmm was introduced.

    If you haven’t been on these forums in the last couple weeks, they’ve been full of threads complaining about MMR. A lot of people seem to hate it. I and a few friends haven’t played at all in over a week. My homie who’s a god-level killer has only played a few games. I know MMR is designed to improve retention of noob players, but I wonder how the playtime of the top 5% has changed in the last 2 weeks.

  • I like it. As a casual player, my matches feel way fairer.

    I don't like sitting in the queue for 5-10 minutes when my pre-MMR queue times for killer were pretty much instant.

    I literally had the quickest match today, have no idea how they could be done so fast. I normally complain at 5 minutes completion, this must have been 4 or less as they all split onto different gens. There was no way I could protect them all.

    Still got a 2k, one in the basement that I unfortunately had to tunnel on final gen, and egc killed the other.

    I am either getting way too easy matches or way too hard, there has been no inbetween for me.

    Hm. I'm actually very confused how this MMR system is supposed to be working. I played killer for about 2 days straight; I played my main killers and I got teams that were very good. Very good. Maybe even better than me in terms of skill but not godlike. Then I decided to play a killer I never actually took time to get better with or learn because you know how it was with the old rank system being a purple / red rank killer trying a new killer for the first time...


    I decided to dedicate a whole day playing Doctor. Some of my first games were against most likely players who were not pros and geared more towards noobs who just installed the game and I felt terrible for wiping them out so fast. I got better with Doc, learning the timing of the shocks then I go for a bathroom break while I queue up come back (which was one of the only times it was a super fast queue time) and find in the last few seconds I'm versing a TTV and this group were practically godlike, I got mega nuisaced by the TTV who was playing the fossil Bill Overbeck. I did what most killers would do with a clicky and clicky and ignored him, trying to go for the others who were admittedly, easier targets despite them all being really really good and out of my skill level I felt like. I barely get 4 hooks when they 4 man escape. I doubt it was a full 4 man swf because only the TTV seemed to be the one flexing while the others were just chill.

    It's not so terrible as I thought it'd be. I thought I'd be going against bully squads back to back but no, just more stressful overall. I do see a difference from before but eh, I kinda don't pay much mind to it. I need to not care how things turn out or go if I want to enjoy the games.

    One thing that has been consistent though is the ones around my skill level are all splitting up on gens so by the time I get a down, one gen has popped with 2 being worked on.

    Is it fun? Sometimes. Most of the times? More stress headaches than it's probably worth.

    I don't think new MMR is fun for killers. It's an actual sweat fest, cause mostly u meet swf since people gather up and start grinding their MMR and it's very frustrating to play weak killer vs swf. Don't know how it feels with strongest killers.

  • FeelsBadManFeelsBadMan Member Posts: 335

    Idk cause since the MMR dropped I haven't been able to get in a game as killer at all due to the ridiculous long queue time. I start a game to actually play and not to wait for 20+ minutes to find a match.

  • AxxAxx Member Posts: 386

    If you are a decent killer, you can't play not sweaty and expect to do well as often anymore. You have to try and play to win.

  • As a killer, I don't really notice much of a difference. Before MMR, I was rank 1 killer and faced red ranks every game. After MMR, I am probably playing against the same people.

  • Gamedozer7Gamedozer7 Member Posts: 1,848

    Don't you love trying to play a new killer and the survivors understand them better than you. I also tried oni for the first time and got a bunch of survivors that I would of struggled against with a killer I knew well.

  • EvilJoshyEvilJoshy Member Posts: 5,112

    I think the SBMM puts you in the global average when you play a killer it doesn't have enough data on. Meaning the first time you use a new killer it has nothing to go on. So it puts you in the average hoping that's close enough.

    Hate it, I'm punished for being good

  • Gamedozer7Gamedozer7 Member Posts: 1,848

    I think my mmr is already to high i feel out classed 80% of the time plus I've heard there is only about a 200 difference between your best and since mmr is probably still wacked and not accurate yet(if ever). This is all my opinion though.

  • EvilJoshyEvilJoshy Member Posts: 5,112

    It doesn't factor in playtime, perks, add ons, and more importantly. If the other team is in a swf or not.

  • Gamedozer7Gamedozer7 Member Posts: 1,848

    Like my level 15 legion going up against 4 full meta survivors was a great second legion game.

  • MarcoPoloYoloMarcoPoloYolo Member Posts: 508

    Well, my queue times are longer on pretty much every killer regardless of my playtime on them, so that automatically makes it less enjoyable. Sweat builds are far more common as are SWF, so yay. It's not that I can't perform decently well, but the process tends to be less enjoyable. I guess this is an excuse to master survivor I guess.

    It hasn't been the best thing that ever happened to me or the Scourge of God Himself

    just pretty alright so far.

    Yeah, my matches have been great

  • SchardonSchardon Member Posts: 177

    Yes and no. I do enjoy to not get matched with absolute baby survivors who I demolish before they have even done one gen but I also don't enjoy having to sweat my a off every single game against try hard squads.

    I mean I do enjoy the challenge from time to time but I don't want to face it in every single game since I play DbD for what it is - a casual game. If I wanted to sweat I'd play a proper PvP game like Starcraft or DotA.

    This game is in such a weird state that I've actually stopped playing DbD for now because I don't want to sweat every single game (as I've already mentioned) and I don't want to wait 10 minutes for my queue to pop. 10 minutes of waiting time is just too much for me. I have very limited time to play games and I don't want to waste my spare time by looking at a queue screen. 1-2 minutes are fine, but 10 is atrocious.

    And when I decide to play DbD I just play survivor most of the time now even though I don't even enjoy the survivor gameplay and prefer the killer gameplay way more, simply because I don't have to sweat as much and I have instant queues.

    DbD should either stop trying to be competitive and focus on its casual gameplay or completely overhaul the game and make it competitive as many people want it to be. But right now it's just an abomination of both.
