Apart from the balances, I miss old DBD.

2017 was a blast! I remember coming in when doctor was the newest killer....fun times :/ game was dark and spooky.

    Graphically the games looks technically better but some of the new maps have an unpleasant pallete which makes me think the same as you. Daytime maps give the wrong atmosphere and so do all grey/brown maps.

    But I remember old DS juggling, old ruin punishing newbie me and the hatch standoffs. If you had posted this on Wednesday I would also have said, "and do you remember how you could get a good 3 gen prepared only for three people to effectively DC via the jumping in the hatch and then get bonus points for doing so)

    Also, I would miss the 60fps 4K graphics. I couldn't go back to 15fps again!

    I agree, I think on Ormond it looks fine but coldwind had such a cool vibe before, now it's pretty lame

    I do too. The old atmosphere and feel of the game is gone. Certain old powers like Freddy and billy were better as well.

    Plus some remodels cough David cough end up looking worse anyway

    The look of DBD was way better back then. The Maps looked actually dark and scary. Nowadays you basically play at daylight (even the before Coldwind-Rework).

    I miss times when I didn't get stuck at every little object on the map.

    Yeah the atmosphere now is lacking. I still believe with fog rework and a little bit of lighting adjustment they could make the new maps look great though! They don’t look bad on their own after all.

    but I really really do not miss everything that was broken back then. Infinites, BNP, Moris, hatch mechanic, exhaustion. Then we have QoL stuff like colorblind, struggle not being button mashing anymore etc. They did make so many improvements that go unmentioned.

    Idk tbh graphic is much better I literally cringe anytime I see old dbd video gameplay of how bad it was but I agree in one thing it had definitely better horror aspect and atmosphere

    Yeah, I miss the old atmosphere, too.

    Ever since the fog was removed and the map reworks, the game lost all of its atmosphere and creepiness. The old graphics had their own style, while the new ones just feel empty and generic.

    Really miss old Crotus Prenn Asylum maps' atmosphere. Can't see any dark, gloomy reminiscences on current maps.

    Give us back old DbD atmosphere, fog, and moonlight offerings.

    In 2017 I was doing other things. Never knew this game existed back then lol.

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 7,753

    So do I.

    I miss Old DBD more than anyone does and more than anyone ever will.

    Dbd had such a unique and fun atmosphere like 2-3 years ago. The graphics were mediocre but they were dbd graphics and I grew to love them. Realm beyond has destroyed that dbd feel for me. All the survivors look nothing like the survivors I've been playing as for 3 years now. Same with the maps and hud, the maps make this game not even feel like dbd anymore.

    I ######### hate realm beyond so ######### much
