Haha, as a matter of fact, I still have my original DS and 3DS lying around somewhere.
I'll probably still join.
If it’s cool i’d like to maybe SWF with you sometime. But it’s whatever you wanna do don’t feel pressured.
One of my buds insist on chasing me around puking on me all trial whenever we get a Plague, in case you're wondering about our skill and commitment! :)
I put my gamertag in your activity page. :-)
Damn. Sucks to hear you're not enjoying the game anymore. I kinda got the impression you weren't from some of your posts.
I hope you can find another game that will bring you happiness!
If Pulsar is quitting then I'm leaving too.
I remember the olden days, where online gaming meant dialing up another persons IP number with your modem and paying for it like it was a normal call (back in the days there was no flatline), so you better only played people in your region.
You should make your own decisions, but I appreciate the sentiment.
Added you :)
Truthfully, I haven't enjoyed it for a while.
I've just been pushing myself along with the hope that it's gonna get better.
For real. Just realizing what percentages and small nuts and bolts are discussed about, turned, dialed and patched in DOTA regularly, in order to balance stuff out.
Things like CoH, DH or Ruin/Corrupt wouldn't fly over there for so long. And yet we have some long-standing problems in DBD, that constantly burn out players of both sides, and even frustrate some of the communities best and most passionate players.
I know that people like Otz are "just some streamers" to most, but this people also have a passion for the game and such insights. I bet if BHVR implemented all his "my changes for every killer" and made it a PTB it would work much better then many of the arbitrary (seaming) changes we got in the last balance patches.
The community has many great ideas, yet nearly nothing of it gets realized. Tweaking the numbers should be something that should be done much, much more regularly, like every two weeks, and then furthet tweaked. You will never achieve a such balanced game, that every perk or option sees the same kind of play, but we got So. Many. Dead. Perks right now, that aren't just useful, not even in specialized or meme builds, and that's just sad.
That's what happened to me, until I finally just decided it wasn't worth it and quit.
I've lost most of my faith that the game will get better.
I think most people wouldn't have an issue with bad changes (like Deathslinger's) if patches didn't come out once every 2 months.
Changing 10 perks and 2 Killers a patch was fine when there were 12 Killers. It's just not going to cut it anymore. The game has grown exponentially and the patch notes should reflect that.
You did indeed, man!
It's really sad to see you go. I only got into dbd in November by buying the Strange Thing's DLC before it was gone, and I have digging this game ever since, playing it nearly every day.
And while I don't have the big picture mode of having seen the game evolve over the years, even I have encountered so many problems and felt the killers burnout. I have never encountered another game that punished you so hard for playing good, like dbd. And if you voice your concern, the empathy-less parts of the community throw shade on you, stating that this is your own fault for playing so sweaty.
A lot of the problems could (properly) tweaked by playing with some numbers, but every change comes a long at a glacial and ponderous pace, and every now and then you get comically bad nerfs for already subpar and underplayed killers like Clown or Twins. It doesn't matter if a single add-on might be a bit too strong, look at the big picture, ffs!
But back to you. I have only been part of this community for a short time, but you stood out as a vocal, knowledgeable individual and I always perked up when I saw your name in one of the responses.
Take your time to sort out your problems. It sounds like they dig deeper then just taking a hiatus from this game, but if this game doesn't give you the kind of escapism that you need right now, then look for something else, at least for the time being.
I do understand where you are coming from because I also got attached to that game and community somehow. If that is something good or bad we will never know, however I can ensure you that many old players go through this emotional rollercoaster.
It may sound weird but just like with ppl who can get sick and tired of each other (Married couple is an best example) or a toy for child that just drops it and forgets about it, dbd is also something that will fade and be less attractive by time. This applies obviously to every game aswell.
Just take it easy, dont be too rough on yourself and play something else or just take a break from the PC/Console. Thats the best advise I can give you, wish I could do more but well I am also only human in the end.
They have won, but the cost of losing you is too great.
They win, and everybody loses...
Welcome to the retired killers club 🎉🎈
We have BBQs with chili, puddings as dessert, and we like to play "put the tail to 🐷"
Now jokes aside, its good for everyone to either take a break or not play for a very long time if not having fun. Im a dbd player since 2016 and after playing 2200 Hours... with the current state of the game i don't find it entertaining anymore and its mostly an stressful boring experience.
I used to have neck pain, and it was because of DBD.. but not for playing long hours session because i only have 2200 hours in 6 years which is not much.. but because the game tenses your nerves a lot even if you play only 1 or 2 hours a day. So i recommend all to prioritize their health. I know that i won't play again until serious changes are made to the game but for the ones that are stubborn, if you are not having a good time anymore, just don't play or take a break, your body and mind will be thankful.
Actually nevermind, thank you for being around Pulsar. Have a good one!
People want their game to be fun, if it isn't fun, they're gonna say something about it because they care. You're just negative
You too <3
I'll still play. I wanted to be honest, so I gave the honest answer. My friends play and I got them into the game, so I can't very well abandon them to it now.
I'll probably check out the Ring chapter, but I'm not going to be buying it myself.
I dunno, I'm nothing special, but thank you C3.
Hope things get better on your end, Pulsar. Just wanted to chime in and say that for 1 - you've definitely made the forums a better place in general. You are what I would perceive as a voice of reason in the middle of... usually a lot of unreasonable voices, to put it nicely. Major props for going to bat for console peoples
And for 2 - I can definitely sympathize with how you feel, on all those points. I've been playing on and off since 2018 but stopped playing halfway through the latest halloween event. I still lurk around the forums a bit because I can't help myself, but I'm feeling pretty great about my decision to stop playing. At this point, it's not even that I dislike the game, it's that I have absolutely zero faith that bhvr is either capable or willing to do the right thing on a lot of issues. I'm really looking forward to checking out some of these new asym multiplayer games to see if they'll scratch the same kind of itch
Anyways, I wish you well friend
First off, thank you.
Secondly, I'd like to try some of those games. Unfortunately, most of them are PC-only.
Yeah, that is a bit of a bummer that most are PC only. I will probably try hooking my laptop up to my tv and playing with a controller for VHS, but hopefully that eventually makes its way to console if it does well enough. Ash vs Evil Dead game should be out on console to begin with, although I get the feeling that's going to be delayed a bit longer
Right now, as far as console asym alternatives to DBD, there's not much beyond comp stomping in Evolve or White Noise 2. Although those can both be fun for a little bit here and there. I really could not get into the Predator game at all, for whatever reason
I played Evolve when it first came out, never could get into it.
I think VHS said they want to make sure their game works well on PC and runs well on Console before they release it. That seems pretty good to me.
I'm getting through Far Cry 3 and AC: Black Flag rn. After that, I might play Skyrim for the first time.
