I'm done maining killer.

i'm really angry and frustrated rn.

how much ridiculous can this game be? it's so damned unbalanced and survivor sided and, since you released this new MMR system, it got even worse.

i keep meeting TRYHARD SWFs all the time. gens pop in a blink and even if a chase lasts 20 secs, 2 gens already pop, even with slowdown perks.

playing killer has become for me really frustrating and sweaty to play, i can't literally have fun on it, i played like 20 matches in 3 days and i only got more frustrated than i already was, no 4k anymore though.

just tryhards with decisive, BT, unbreakable, DH and click click spamming.

funny thing is, when i play survivor, i meet people hiding behind trees, dying fast or literally doing nothing.

this game has become terrible, i might considering taking a break from playing killer or playing the game itself.

i used to enjoy killer, as a killer main, but i just feel angrier, frustrated and more stressed when i'm playing it, everyone tryhards and i start tilting already when 3 gens pop out of nowhere or a chase lasts longer than it should.

    There's no benefit to playing when these are the emotions doing so brings out, so I definitely recommend you take a break.

    It became a meme for no reason, when whichever dev it was who said it was just completely correct: try survivor for a bit, or maybe play something else.

    How about Civ?

  • NuKeDNuKeD Member Posts: 193

    CIV 5 is definitely better than killer mode rn... unbalanced as hell.

    ok lol

  • NuKeDNuKeD Member Posts: 193

    i try to have fun, but i keep meeting tryhards with decisive, click clicking and teabagging and gets more frustrating.

  • NuKeDNuKeD Member Posts: 193

    thinking they're good thanks to those meta crutch perks.

    I get it... Getting 0k's gets so frustrating

    Sometimes getting 1k gets to me... cause i think of the game as a whole all of my mistakes, misplays, missed reads

    I reccomend back 4 blood for your horror needs right now😁

  • FancyMrBFancyMrB Member Posts: 1,189

    This exactly. Doesn't matter if you are a god killer. 4 half decent survivors with meta perks, items, and coms will always have the advantage.

    I play both sides but I always found killer more fun ^^ I have accepted that even when I play my best it doesn't mean I will win. Heck sometimes I hardly get 2 hooks for each survivor ^^" It can be rough but I just remind myself of the above. It is out of our control really and all you can do is you best in this chaotic game.

    Take a break for sure. Games should make you happy and relaxed ^^

    Playing surv : ######### garbage team, 0-1 gen, leavers, suicides

    Playing killer: Cheaters, swf or swf with cheats <3

    Feel for u man, this ranked system and balance is total bullS

    I understand, I personally don't mind DS, I'm not a big tunneler so I rarely get hit with it, and if they have it, they can't do anything for a minute.

    Tbagging and clicking are tactics used to unnerve you, try to see it as that and not take it too personally.

    But you can always get some friends, SWF and enjoy the game on EZ mode.

    If the op plays killer he gets rolled by survivors all the time because they are so op.

    If he plays survivor, the survivors get rolled all the time because they are trash.

    I am not saying that this SBMM is good or the game is perfectly ballanced, but if you get rolled on both sides, it might not only be the games fault you are loosing all the time.

    Its even worse for those that play slow start killers like Oni, Trapper and Shape. As Oni, in playing really well and only getting 1 or 2k. Not had a 4k for well over a week now. I was rank 12 before the update, so my games were quite balanced, some hard some easy, now its just coordinated teams who don't make any mistakes. If I make a mistake, they all escape.

    If every survivor is a try-hard, then it probably means you were a try-hard as a Killer.

    If you play for fun, your MMR will adjust, you'll just suffer loses until it does.

  • YamaokaYamaoka Member Posts: 4,165

    Honestly I find Back 4 Blood really boring.

    Played it last night and felt like... No excitement at all. Maybe it's because I played Left 4 Dead back in the day (a lot!) so it just feels like playing an old game.

    Maybe that's just me, though.

  • SumnoxSumnox Member Posts: 313

    The issue is just the following:

    There's a lot of 3-4 man SWF sweaty teams. Someone has to play against those, and it's likely going to be people who play killer regularly obviously.

    Then, we have the solo queue or 2men groups (not nearly as powerful), and those get destroyed.

    So, your solo queue experience will be trash most of the time.

    And your killer experience will also be trash, very often.

    How do they balance this? hardly. Because any "solution" you introduce will have consequences. You could let killers know they're going against a SWF group. But then everyone would dodge those. This game can't afford losing thousands of players who play in groups.

    If you buff killer too much to compensate. then you absolutely destroy solo queue. It's a nightmare to play solo surv already, so.

    Only solution I see is buffing solo queue to the point of being close to SWF, then balance around that.

    Agree with most but I'm not done with it... I'll keep playing but it's true the killer role is meh rn

  • SaitamfedSaitamfed Member Posts: 1,453

    Probably is the key word. Why people act like the new matchmaking is perfect, the devs make mistakes and it's fine to make mistakes as long as you realize they're there.

  • NuKeDNuKeD Member Posts: 193

    i'm glad some people in here could relate with my "outburst" and understand what i went through.

    i still like DBD, i spent most of the time there when i'm bored, but you know, after a strenous day, all you want to do, is to open your favorite game and have some fun, but it gets sweaty and stressful and all that happens is you getting angrier and frustrated.

  • shane32shane32 Member Posts: 383

    Yup I feel you. been getting nothing but sweat fests every game. The other day was sent to Haddonfield 4 times in a row vs these death squads.

  • NuKeDNuKeD Member Posts: 193

    lol, same, but i got sent to coldwind like 7 times in a row, i think it was cowshed, which contains good long loops with safe pallets. that was frustrating as hell.

  • CleviteClevite Member Posts: 4,335

    I'm am not worried about pipping, myself. Freedom of playing over 4 years I guess. All my goals are met.

    But, I understand those that still desire to.

    This is not okay what you are writing and I will explain why. I conclude the following from what I have read. You are supposed to meet only Tryhard SWF's ? Sorry, but no one will believe you..... and even if it would be so, then you are just so good with the respective killer, that you just belong there. (each killer has its own MMR). You write: it has become frustrating and sweaty for you than it was already without.....man recognizes quite clearly that if you do not make a 4k, you are not satisfied with yourself. In the end, it's up to you and just because a survivor plays with metaperks doesn't mean he's tryharding.

    Just like someone who has 5000 hours.... he/she is more experienced yes, but it doesn't mean he/she plays better and at least 80% of the people here forget that. I am firmly convinced that the developers will come up with something in the future. However, one should give the SBMM and everything that still comes, a chance instead of directly claim: Do what Devs or the game will die..... DBD will not die and people like us supposedly always know everything better than the devs. You should remember that too. So why don't you come to the forum and create a frustration release thread instead of something like this one ? "The game will die, do something Devs".....

    oh man I really can't hear it anymore, sry.

    54% average killrate. i will just leave that here and you can try to make your own conclusions about that.
