This game is not killer sided

I regret to inform you that I have been shamed and humiliated, and probably won't play this anymore.

Palewater Swamp, I was Nemesis. I did everything I could, I tried every trick to help myself here but it was all meaningless. At least three of them had Dead Hard and genrushed the absolute oblivion out of me. I was running Lethal Pursuer, BBQC, Spies from the Shadows, and NOED, because I just knew I was going to need serious help.

Not even NOED helped me. I was humiliated beyond belief, even standing in the exit gate was worthless because they all saved their Dead Hards for that precise moment. After the trial I was filled with nothing but shame, should I even be playing this game?

This game is not killer-sided, complain about NOED all you want but these Survivors are nasty. I don't even deserve to be salty, literally everything that happened was of my own incapability. I feel like I don't even deserve to play this game anymore after the stunt I just pulled.

    I think everyone knows that the game is killer sided. Anyone who says otherwise doesn’t play killer and therefore should have no business in stating an opinion on the subject. or they’re trolling

    They need to encourage more players to play killer somehow.. like maybe an entire page of a rift that has to be done by playing killer. Killer sucks. Playing survivor I can relax and hold down a button and do a few skill checks while doing a Gen. killer you are constantly at work and then the rage when players tbag, flashlight click, and dm you that your garbage. I hardly ever got any hate mail as survivor… might be because I suck at killer and I’m pretty good at surv but even if I destroyed a team I would get hate mail… hardly ever as survivor

    what people forget is we need killers to have a game. Keep bugging survs and nerfing killers your not going to have a game anymore. Booms and that f up “sbmmr” which is hardly anything to do with skill and just escapes and kills .. this game is turning to s

    and I’m sad because I absolutely loved this game…so here I am b!tchin in a dbd forum

    There should be a little gear wheel/settings icon. Inexplicably, that is what you need to click to see the edit option.

    Yes the maps are pretty bad as of right now

    They even had to stop people from "abusing" them so they took off the Map Offerings for them... but left the maps on (For whatever reason)

    I won't say anything about balance cause I know I have people whom disagree with what I do have to say about it

    In the grand scheme of things, this game isn't Killer vs Survivor.

    It is top tier killer (nurse blight spirit) and SWF at the top, and average killer + solo queue survivor at the bottom.

    If good killer players want to dominate the vast majority of their games they can choose a top tier killer with meta perks and the best addons.

    If good survivor players want to dominate the majority of their games they can join their friend(s) and give themselves a huge advantage.

    Framing it as killer vs survivor does nothing to help the actual balance issue, which is that the top 2 groups (top tier killer and SWF) so greatly outperform the bottom 2 groups (average killer and solo queue survivor).

    You have to be incredibly delusional to think this game is killer sided. Explain how this game works to anyone who doesn't play it and they will probably tell you it's survivor sided by nature. The Math favors gen efficiency. What makes killers kill are weak links and lack of coordination, which can easily be dealt with a Discord chat.

    The game is not Survivor sided- it’s Survive with Friends sided. You killer mains need to join us Solo Que players more often & more consistently. It’ll open your eyes. A lot of the stuff that doesn’t work against SWF works well against solo Que. And the stuff that DOES help against SWF is completely BUSTED against SQ. And that’s what got Wraith’s cheap ass nerfed. Still isn’t enough in my opinion, but I know SWF runs circles around him in his current state so I’ll compromise & take what I can get.

    SWF needs to be removed from public matches. The game launched without it, and personally I believe it was by design- not a time constraint to get the game out.

    It's sad and I'm sorry you feel that way.

    A few days ago I came across a post on Reddit written by a psychologist, it was quite interesting to read.

    They wrote about the game and added 'Killer Humiliation' vs 'Survivor Humiliation'. basically saying "This game is humiliating your adversary".

    I share this post with you if you want to read it.

    I think it's best to do what is best for your health. take a break if you need to or play in the way you are not going to take things to heart.

    Personally I also feel big shame against 4 players and I'm trying my best to avoid certain lobbies and play only 2 games as Killer before feeling this misery.

  • SeraphorSeraphor Member Posts: 4,229

    Hard disagree.

    I mostly play survivor solo and I escape more often than I do the times I play with friends. Ultimately it comes down to how skilled the individual survivors are, and how they work together. Solo just means you can end up with anyone, including potatoes.

    So SWF comes with benefits, you can choose your teammates, and you can make up for some mistakes with good coordination. But that coordination isn't guaranteed, your SWF could be awful at communicating even on voice.

    The game might have launched without SWF, but it was added for a reason. Take it away and people will just lobby dodge until they end up together anyway, like they used to.

    Like it or not survivor is a team game, and to make a good team you need communication.

    I spent last night finishing off my Pinhead and had a god awful time.

    First Game - Ormond...Got Mikaela to death hook at like 4 gens but instead of removing her I targeted else where (Only reason she got hooked 2nd time is unhooker dipped out). Then got a chase with meg and Pallet/Drop/run from loop, get caught out of position/DH/Pallet, process restarted. I was Ghostface (ritual) and it's not super fun being m1 right now. Got t-bagged at gate messaged by the Mikalea EZ. I responded with killers are tunneling/camping left and right and you talk ######### to one who don't.....Makes sense should have killed you at 4 gens.

    2nd game - pinhead - Red forest ....Pretty much identical to first game but killed one with 8 hooks.

    3rd game - Pinhead on RED FOREST again...6 hooks no kills

    4th game - Pinhead on Swamp.....Ok ######### this game it's on. This game I eliminated the death hooked person at 4 gens and won the game with 3 gens remaining. Got bored and switched to survivor.

    5th Game - Survivor - Tunneled....off hook twice by a Plague. Logged off.

    Seeing how I am having 15min-20min que times as Survivor and nearly instant ques as Killer (sorry low mmr survivors I can't make your lobbies faster). Also 4 of the 7 games I had today the Killer left.

    I am sure they can at least see it in the stats.

  • NAERUUUNAERUUU Member Posts: 385

    First : don’t speak about dead hard and meta perk if you use chili BBQ and lethal pursuer.

    and dude … toxic player are everywhere … I know this is painful but … block him and go next

  • TsulanTsulan Member Posts: 12,670

    They probably see that, but who knows what they do with this data.

  • Leatherface1990Leatherface1990 Member Posts: 707

    Killer sucks play SWF and teabag.

  • VolczVolcz Member Posts: 681

    I had a similar match as a survivor against Nem on Forest.

    We all gen rushed and the killer seemed to struggle in chases with some of us, he broke off a chase with me because I guess it was taking too long. Game was over in about...5-6m (at most) and I could tell he was frustrated because he opened one gate and then gestured for me to open the other one. He had very clearly given up and just wanted out of the match ASAP. Felt bad and told him to keep his head up.

    And yea, of course its not killer sided. We got SWFs with full comms and call outs, we got boon totems, were on a 4 man team versus a solo Killer, we have exhaustion perks for second chances, DS to avoid 'tunneling', BT to make sure we get a safe unhook, etc. I think most players have realized that survivors are the power players, not the killers. A person with only 100 hours can see this just like someone with thousands.

    Your MMR is extremely high. Play a bit and it will go lower. I was playing Twins yesterday (haven't played her in a while) and I guess my MMR was crazy high with them because the survivors were decimating me for 3 games. However, if I play Pinhead, I usually just mess around with the survivors because they obviously just started learning the game. I assume it's because Pinhead didn't have any pre-data on him.

    Yep...this game is so survivor sided that right now I had a game where I've been facecamped by a huntress aiming a hatchet at everyone and I died with 2k points. But let's pretend killers have a hard time

  • RainehDazeRainehDaze Member Posts: 1,293

    "I had a bad game. This proves everyone is wrong and talking about nothing."

  • RainehDazeRainehDaze Member Posts: 1,293

    I guess that's that, then. All balance should be directed towards this one guy's vs Huntress game.

  • Having a bad game every now and then is not the end of the world. Nor does it mean that killers are weak... it means you still have much to learn about the game and playing your killer. Not every game is winnable and not every game is lost either.

    It's all about finding a good strategy that works for you. Keep in mind though, going into a game, that you should always have more than one strategy in mind. One strategy doesnt work for every game so make sure to come up with several strategies your killer can use based on their powers, perks, etc to get the most out of them.
