To the Twitter post where according to you they implied that NFT was created outside of their control.
I'm going to correct you about this: no thread has been removed then or now, people that got warned or banned, did for breaking the rules, not for discussing the topic.
You can go back and find the threads yourself.
Karu has not been banned for discussing the topic, his thread is still up, he knows the reasons of his ban.
I don't understand the hoohboy.
Isn't this really easy?
Plant a Boon on a Totem that's close to a Generator that a fellow Survivor is working on.
Do that 50 matches or less and you're done.
Imagine a mod coming to disprove the banning/removal of posts but NOT the NFT stuff XD kinda sus man ngl
Sorry but I'm no CEO.
Never said you were, but you would think with all the bs the NFT stuff started BHVR would give enough of a flying **** to tell their mods how to address it or address it themselves. The silence only proves these claims right but I understand where you are coming from
Big man on campus coming through!
I wish I could give you some words of comfort in regards this entire situation, but sadly I cannot, the best we can do is to keep sharing our thoughts and opinions on this thread, this is the kind of feedback we need to put out.
I understand people are upset and angry, don't blame them and they have the right to be, we still have to do our job here, because as much as we discuss, there are people whose life depends on the game and they cannot stop working on or with it, so let's try to be empathetic.
Yeah, can we not get angry with the mods. If some developers were blindsided by this news, I highly doubt the forum mods were part of these shady dealings.
Well... Read it again...
Like many people you don't understand correctly what they wrote...
Agreed. It's not the mods fault. They are only doing their job.
I mean I know and don't blame you guys but is there anything you guys can do to show your discontent with the decision of the higherups? A protest? A walk-out? Maybe nothing that grand, but at least SOMETHING to show that the devs and mods are either on our side or are at least making some grumbling sounds to the higher ups about this.
If I were a mod on these forums I would honestly step down due to this situation with NFT's.
the mods are in a tricker position than most. They have their own opinions which most likely conform to what a lot of people feel right now. However they still have to moderate the forums in a way that those same people will see as opposing. I don't evny the mods right now, however I dont blame them either. They're the same as anybody else.
Sorry everyone, I won't be reading the entire thread.
I was taking a break from dbd, because you just gotta sometimes, but I came back because I wanted to say, this game has been fun.
I had a great time playing this game, I played it daily, several matches.
I love how it's basically the smash of horror.
The community content that comes from this game is some of the best I watched.
I looked past several issues with the game, because I understand they are things that happen. some things might have taken longer to look past than others...
but I can't look past this NFT business. I saw the tweet which heavily implied they had nothing to do with it, and I gave bhvr the benefit of the doubt. only for that trust to be broken later.
I wanna say again that I really like this game, but I can't in good conscience endorse it anymore.
even with all the issues, specially on console, I never actually even considered uninstalling the game. now I can't see myself playing it.
The last time I ever felt this way about any franchise, is when JK rowling did... the things she did and does. Granted, what she does is way worse and hits way more personally to me than any nft ever could. but dbd ain't no harry potter either.
So I just came to say this. and that I uninstalled the game from my notebook and ps4. but I didn't want to create a thread because I'm not trying to get any discussion going. I'm just giving my 2 cents.
I am just wondering why I didn't see such an outrage when the boss of a certain electric car company was promoting cryptocurrencies. Maybe I just didn't read the correct forums. Anyway... the car sales didn't drop.
That's a bit of a red herring there bud. We aren't talking about Elon, his Musks, or his Cryptocurrencies. We're talking about Dead by Daylight's want to have their cake and eat it too. Not only that, but cars are also VERY different from video games.
The outrage is about NFTs are bad because they harm environment. Well cryptocurrencies are exactly the same...
That is a false equivalence. Saying they are exactly the same is misleading and outright false. Cryptocurrencies are just that, a currency. NFTs are images or gifs that have a receipt saved into a server that uses up more energy that it is currently worth. For instance, say one buys an NFT for $250. The server used to keep your receipt valid costs over $2000 a month to run. Of course all of these numbers are made up, but my point is clear that NFTs waste way more money and energy than they need in order to stay active.
That's the element that's getting the most attention. The other element is that they're pretty much a scam and BHVR is now actively advertising for a fairly shady company (so much so that people were convinced this whole thing was a prank before it got the official announcement) that is making them. In a vacuum, this is not ok, and the whole Lawyer speak about trying to calm the community about this NFT situation while not explicitly denying that they were doing them is kinda disrespectful to the consumer. They were hoping people weren't reading between the lines, and many clearly didn't. Regardless, there was an element of deception in that the clear purpose of their statements was to convince us that this was just the license holders doing their own thing. It isn't apparently.
Musk has pretty dedicated 'hate clubs' - you gave your own answer there. Tesla stock, though, provably dips most times Elon talks crypto.
as much as I wanna get in on this bandwagon about mr. Musky [redacted]. Lets try keep this all relevant and not too politcal, yeah? 😅
NFTs are not scam, but many try to do scams using NFTs. If someone doesn't understand NFTs or they are not interested in an NFT which says that "you own pinhead according to bossprotocol" (or something similar) then they simply just shouldn't buy it.
Ok, here's the thing. The idea is that it's a limited collectable that may or may not pay off (depending if you have another sucker to bye it from you). The scarcity of an NFT is completely artificial, and the content that you "own" with an NFT is easily mass produced, so yes, I do consider it a scam.
*pyramid scheme intensifies*
Sorry, but your whole understanding is wrong...
The whole "environmental damage" of NFTs comes from the fact that they are stored in a cryptocurrency database and building this cryptocurrency database (blockchain) needs a lot of computing power, i.e. electricity, i.e. cheap electricity, which is made using fossil fuels.
Pyramid scheme is something different.
IGN put out article about DBD working with NFT company and fans being unhappy, this was how they ended the article... 😂 😂 😂
You say that it is a scam, because it can be mass produced. It would be a scam if you didn't know about it and someone would sell you while claiming the opposite.
Btw I guess even if a lot of NFTs can be created for the same stuff, most likely the first one will have the value for people. But I am not an expert on this.
Note: I would also not buy NFTs, I am not interested in them.
