They have said a lot of things.
I'm certainly not a great Pinhead player, but I think he can be pretty good. I wouldn't mind him receiving some small buffs, though.
Yeah it hasn’t been too fun for survivor either imo. All I get is either insanely good blight’s nurses and spirits or a fresh install wraith who thinks he’s playing Friday the 13th
Did BHVR seriously think they could pull this off?
Maybe its a region thing. Playing EU.
Didn't they say they wanted games balanced around 2 kills and two escapes?
Which seems nuts to me because who wants a survival horror where 50% of the game is destined to escape by design. The play seems to represent this too...
When I play survivor I often don't even interact with the killer as they are hard tunneling two other survivors because if they don't we'll all get out, so you get 1-2K and 2-3 escapes aparently that's balance.
When playing killer I sweat like a beast to get close to a kill or two or I just have to meme around and accept that there is no threat to the other players at all from me.
Its almost as if matches are now designed that only 50% of players intereact for the game and you can choose to play it an dprobably die on hook or not to play it and just sit on gens till you walk out the door. Its an odd design and not much fun.
Also playing on EU. EU West to be precise.
From the looks of it its either horribly bugged or they decided to remove it for whatever reason.
Given the developers actions they probably removed it on purpose without telling us...Again
I also play EU West and at the evening. I get my Killer matches with around 4-8 minutes maximum usually its just 2-3.
The problem seems to be the lack of individual MMR for the Killers on Pulsars side. This is just bad and ruins the fun especialy when you take the Feddy example. Also there seems to be little to no decay in MMR when you let people escape and this is bad too, MMR should adjust downside a bit faster to get people to play more again.
Or another theory: The MMR of Killers is just higher overall when you are good with one Killer and survivors tend to have a lower MMR over all compared to Killers. Example: You best Killer is a 10, you "new" Killer get a 8 and survivors only have a 7. This would place your best killer against the same survivor as your worst Killer. Thus explaining long que times and bad matches.
I welcome you into the "retired killer main turns into survivor main" group
It was a lie, dataminers found out that if you, let's say, play only nurse and are godly with her, your MMR with other killers will also be higher.
Sorry you’re having a frustrating time with the game. I’d really recommend taking a break, I got really frustrated with the game a few months back and stopped playing it for a while and when I came back it was much more fun. Try out a different game, I think DBD has a tendency to suck people in and become the only game they play and I think it causes a lot of frustration.
That or switch to survivor for a while. I’ve done the opposite, gone from 60/40 survivor/killer to 70/30 killer/survivor because I’m having a lot more fun playing killer than survivor at the moment.
Can I still be in this club even if I've actually just come full circle from survivor to killer to survivor?
100%. Killer is vile to play at the moment. And i agree with you about the MMR.
I've played around 100 killer games in the past 2 weeks, averaging around 7 per day id say. 40% playing Pinhead, 40% playing Pyramid Head. 20% other killers like doctor, freddy, wraith etc.
Pyramid Head is a character before MMR came in i usually got a 4k on. I literally cannot remember the last time i got less than a 3K on him. Yet in the past two weeks ive had occasional groups who go full sweat gen rush and thats fine....but im also getting at least half my games against survivors who play like they're extremely new. They cant loop, they cant dodge my POTD, they get caught out by such silly things.
This would all be fine except on Pinhead, Wraith, Doc and the others, i continually get matched with survivors with a total combined playtime of around 20K hours, if not more (30k in a few instances). These are killers i average out as a 1-3K when i dont tunnel/camp and yet i get better survs playing the killers im obviously weaker at.
So for me its
Play the killers im stronger at = Get potato survivors
Play killers i dont do that well on = Get 4 stack SWF sweat teams who average out at 8K hours each.
Hate to say it, but you are really setting yourself up for disappointment playing on the Series X with a high MMR right now. The content in your post speaks volumes as to why.
I'm sat at the killer mains club right now, its just me, on my own, eating all the sausage rolls, watching the survivor mains through the window partying next door.
I'm with you, bud, the killer role blows. I, too, am finished with it.
I'm still hanging out here too! It's just very close to the door and every day gets more tempting because they have cows, there, Mr. Jaws. Cows.
I am not on the Series X.
Just figured you were because of the long queue times, but in that case I suppose it would be the high MMR.
Then i don´t know whats the problem. Yesterday i had a killer queue of 3 minutes when i started playing at 17:00. Which got lower the later it got. At 19:00 i had a queue of 1 minute.
It is individual but difference is very tiny. Like -200 from your current mmr so u still face strong survivors even if u never played certain killer.
100% yes, especially since it is you.
Funny cuz sometimes I think about becoming a killer main when I play solo queue. 😂
This has literally been me seeing no one on a gen as I am on a hook after running the killer:
I'm just gonna take this as a compliment?
It benefits low mmr killers a lot, and lets just say there is a monetary incentive for them to keep it that way. Believe it or not, new players don't enjoy 4 man flashlight sabo squads trolling them the entire duration of a match.
Don't get me wrong, experiencing those clowns inspired me to get better quickly. But I am not your average new player. Most of them just gave up which is WHY I had to play against those red rank swf as a green killer in the first place.
Maybe you can make a comparison between your main killer account and the alt killer account. If you notice no difference, then there might be something wrong with the mmr altogether.
Like I understood it, your mmr should be high for a killer you play a lot, and really low for a killer you never play.
Example: Your blight is 100, but a killer like trapper (just saying one of course) you never touched, should be 0.
So if a brand new account, after 20 games or something, is not different than your main killer account, then there might be a problem with mmr.
Of course you should play a bit less good then normal, so if there are really new players, you can give them a chance.
My mmr is not that high, so I think I would not see a difference.
I hope my post makes a bit more sense, I'm really tired and can't concentrate too good this moment :)
I know how you feel, but well we all know what we are up against, its BHVR. I stopped playing dbd pretty much anyway and play it just rarely a few games a week and I am happy like that, maybe you should also take a steb back.
Here a friendly recommendation, 7 days to die will release soon a new big patch with tons of new content and graphic updates, its a open world zombie tower defense survival game with crafting and block based building, so its alot of fun playing and building with friends and since the new patches they bring out with clear intention to support the game with alot of effort I have a way better time then I ever had with dbd.
"High MMR" isnt really that high
Dataminers have shown this new system is basically just the old one, but just like the beginning of the old rank reset, (Im talking about pre Plague) itll only be a matter of time until the potatoes reach it
I don't mostly play killer because I just don't wanna deal with longer queues, which this game has like millions of players playing which is sad.
It's same for survivors don't give up of what u have fun with because of bhvr ######### up for 8439 time
My love for the game has been slowly leaking out. I'm not even 100% sure why either. I don't think killer is that much worse than it has been in the past for me (although that might be part of the problem for it's like you said early in the thread; every game seems to be either getting your ass handed to you or handing the survivors asses to them with very little middle ground any more).
But I feel like maybe that's just the ultimate destination of a game like this. The killer has to ultimately become the punching bag as low level survivors need the killer to be like that so they have a chance but this comes at the expense of high level killers as high level survivors know all the tricks to make the killer look silly. If you adjust it, low level survivors get frustrated by being constantly stomped and you lose out on all that sexy new player money. Old vets have already given you their money so them leaving out of frustration is negligible as long as new blood keeps flowing in...
