Damnnn the maps, the loading screens, the cosmetics, everything looks so good 😍
Fun, simple, doesn't have a huge impact on the flow of the game. Good event.
Since everybody uses the forum mainly to complain, I would like to give positive feedback for once. =D
The event is awesome, it's so fun. I love it. I usually don't care if an event has a big or small impact on the usual game. I care about if it's fun and if it's something you usually don't have. (That's why I dislike 'fancy gens and hooks only' events a bit.) And the snowmans are so much fun and generate so many funny moments. I love it, great job boys 'n girls!!!!!
If you need constructive feedback: Since the snowmen give survs an extra hit, and I as a killer also want to goof around a bit with the snowmen, a check box "Disable Rank Progress" during the event would be nice. So I can waste time being goofy a bit but don't loose all my rank progress for it. But I don't need it, I love the event anyways!!!
Your event is to promote gameplay that makes the killers need to hit the survivor an extra time for a down and makes survivors hide in snowmen most of the game thereby most likely killing them as objectives don't get done.
Regardless of the strength or balance surrounding snowmen, I am firmly against the design decisions of this event.
Events should let BOTH sides participate.
The survivors get to play around in snowmen and do stupid #########, but the killer's entire event is just hitting survivors an extra time to not injure them. That's a joke and it really does say a lot about who BHVR want to keep happy and who is just the punching bag there to do it.
there is a bug for charms ? ATM i'm 9/10 cant unlock Christmas Inferno 'charm . 3 time i ve should unlocked it but it didnt. plz devs check it out
Worst event of the year (as killer)
If survivors are just running around as snowman, they're not on gens. So what's the problem?
You won't get genrushed that way and then it's not okay again? Then I don't know what is, tbh.
Care to explain why? Because I don't have any problems with snowman as killer.
Should not respawn it. I hate check it by M1.
And can easy switch chase member.
From a competitive standpoint, since the Survivor is not locked into an animation that stops all momentum such as when jumping in/out of a Locker (where if the Killer whiffs a hit you still don't gain distance), If you can line it up you can jump into a snowman mid-chase and essentially gain a free "hit" where the Killer has to hit you and have the hit slowdown whereas the Survivor is able to just Sprint out no issue.
The solution would be to apply a small hinder to the Survivor that would negate any distance gained, if the Killer performs a successful hit on a Survivor in a Snowman. Survivors could still set them up in loop points for a pseudo dead-hard in Vault loops, but at the very least that requires setup. (And if made so that it's less desirable to hop into a Snowman that is out of position, it becomes a better hiding place, as the Killer wastes time just running around pre-kicking the Snowmen). Also if the Hinder is added, probably want to make base snowman movespeed a bit higher so it's actually feasible to set them up in loops.
At the moment, the Snowman is an improved Tactical Locker, as absurd as it sounds.
However, the Snowmen do provide an interesting possibility for what are normally considered "dead-zones" that have no loops. Perhaps this current iteration of Snowmen could become shrubbery (!!!!) that Survivors could hop into in places like sparse tree dead-zones zones in Autohaven instead of just the same-old pallet loops.
Hmm, though watching gameplay it does look like they've addressed this by using a very slow jump animation that eats up time in a chase. However IMO this is the worst option: It feels slow on the Survivors side and if the Survivor successfully jukes the Killer with it it feels like you got robbed in all instances, in-loop and in dead-zones. Whereas if a hinder exit was applied with a fast entry, it would at the very least feel fluid on the Survivors side and feel less like being robbed on the Killers side when done in the open.
However that does leave on the field two types of Interactable versions of Survivor Concealment:
Slow entry-time that provides defense, mostly static placement in dead-zones (Current Event Snowmen (that don't spawn in places like Killer Shack) and suggested Shrubbery (!!!) base-game), and a fast entry-time that provides a short-term delay that can be moved into loops (Lockers and the suggested tweak to the Event Snowmen)
The snowman only respawns if you (as a killer) break an empty one, if you break one that a survivor is in, that doesn't respawn.
They should totally make a redbubble account. I mean, they already have the 2d designs. Just got those on redbubble and profit immediately.
I'd buy something, I'm sure.
Plot twist, they're gathering analytics of the most used Charms in order to maximize short-term profit on the Charms perceived as having the highest demand and will be releasing them later (Presumably after a marketing poke of an array of "Which one would you, if you could?" in order to get some early production for an easier release based on demand)
...and they profit less than anticipated since there are many pride pins on the market.
Yep, hence the Social Media poke to attempt to filter out "noise" (if not just common sense from marketing).
I was just making a joke about how the most worn charm is easily the pride pin (in my experience, at least), so if they only used analytics, they'd have trouble.
Oh yeah, as soon as I started typing about analytics I was like: Well the Pride Charm is likely one, but very independent of DBD
that was my joke.
sorry for being obtuse, I should have been clearer.
Oh not at all, I'm very obtuse as well when it comes to Jokes that actually have relevance.
They could try to differentiate themselves from the market by pasting the DBD logo on a Pride charm, but that just comes across as being tone-deaf and money-grubbing.
But, they could make the Charm a DBD logo with the color gradient of the Pride Flag, (Though that might be just as tone-deaf, as I might be tone-deaf given I'm a straight guy and not that active in that scene)
I'll play only doctor...
eh, pride coloured stuff is fine.
I don't think anyone would have an issue with a BHVR sticker with pride colouration. it's different when a bank or something does it, but BHVR is clearly an ally, so it'd be fine with company stuff.
plastering a logo on pride stuff may be off colour (pun intended), but I think it'd be mostly inoffensive.
Pretty sure doctor shock doesn't count because you don't get event bp/sparkles from that. I think by breaking with survivor in it it has to be hits that would produce the 400BP and sparkles.
I believe thats the killer charm so it wont show up up on survivor side.
If a survivor can jump in before you can damage them, that same survivor could have ran and jump into the nearest locker too.
Let alone that movementspeed is slower so you only lose distance.
The only scenario I can think its good against, is instadowns, but again, you lose distance, and losing distance against an instadown is never good.
wait you can prob trap a survivor in a snowman forever if you camp it
this gives me ideas.
it involves rancor and nemesis
you chase somebody til they drop a pallet on you and boom they are the obsession then camp them when they jump in a snowman until they leave it in the endgame and down them with rancor and mori them MWAHAHA
I've been having problems getting the rewards for the event on both killer and survivor. I've done all the required things in order to get the rewards for the event, I can tell because I'd get the blue glow effect that you receive for either hitting a survivor out of a snowman, or being hit out of a snowman myself. Is there a period of time for getting the affect that will allow you to get the reward. However, after almost all of my games I have gotten nothing. Is there something to the event that I'm missing? Perhaps someone could enlighten me on what I'm doing wrong.
The pop-up of what you got is shown in the tally screen at the end of the match, you may have skipped through it.
If you got the sparkles, you got the unlock, maybe check the characters if you got any of these cosmetics:
Please keep in mind there's a survivor only charm and a killer only charm if you don't find them.
