Changes to Matchmaking?? This is HORRIBLE, Please NO..
Hi Guys, this is going to be a bit of a "Complaint / Concern"
Sorry I haven't been paying too much attention recently to whats been going on in the DBD world, I did read a message logging into the game that on some days there will be some MMR/Matchmaking Testing going on, and I saw a YouTube video buy a popular streamer I follow recently posted titled something like "MMR is out and it's great again, finally listening to players" or rather...
Anyways, the point that I'm trying to make is that I have no idea what is actually going on, but I am really really really worried if whatever THIS that is happening right now is going to end up being the "norm" moving forward and am completely blown away if people are actually okay with it.
Please, I would like some insight of what is happening and what your experiences are because I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one suffering right now, but who knows I could be wrong.
So, I recently dumped a ton of BP into Sadako because she looked (and is) fun to play, I have read many threads about how she is "weak" but I tried her out and I enjoy her playstyle, it's one of the more fun killers to creep up on survivors with sneak attacks.
That being said, I finally have a few decent sets of perks on her so I've been testing her out trying to learn her playstyle and for the most part, despite what I am about to say, I have been enjoying myself actually...
BUT - Enough is Enough - and this "change" that I have noticed have really MOSTLY been occuring ever since I read the post about "matchmaking testing" going to take place.
My Last 30 Games in a Row ended in a 0-1K. These Survivors are "GODLIKE" and I am using that as an intentional exaggeration because I have faced better survivors before, BUT ONLY on my MAIN Killers that I myself would be considered very very good at, and are MUCH stronger and more viable than Sadako is.
I can tell from the way they use their exaustion perks, and how fast they pop gens, and heal each other, and run perfect loops, that I am CONSISTENTLY facing the Top 10% or better Survivors in DBD over and over again, and it is honestly just TOO much... They make it look SO EASY, I feel completely useless and powerless every single match, testing out multiple different perk combos that I know should do well on her..
I don't know, all I know is that getting 30 matches in a row of mostly 0K and 4 escapes, with occasionally 1K but ONLY if I tunnel the weakest link out of the match.. which I NEVER used to have to do before, is just not right.
If Anything, Shouldn't my MMR DROP already?? How many complete utter losses does it take to finally drop my "MMR" enough to start facing more normal Survivors again? Am I just stuck in the top bracket somehow? Every new match I play I keep thinking to myself, MAYBE these next survivors will finally be more my level, but NOPE they crush me just like the last multiple teams did..
I agree with most of you on the Forums that Killer matches DID get more difficult after the initial big "MMR Release" that came out a little while back, but I got used to it, and for me personally it wasn't really all that bad.. I DEFINITELY didn't make a thread about it to complain back then!
I have been fine with the MMR system actually, on Killer, despite having to sweat really hard, I usually was able to obtain an average of 2K for a while, occassionally more, and almost never less. 2K was a solid average for me since the big MMR changes came, and knowing that is the "Goal", I have been completely okay with it and accepted the fact that is what I should expect.
But now, this 0K 80% and 1K 20% of the time stuff has got to go, if this stays, I'm finally actually going to quit DBD for real like the many others that already have.. and I swear until this moment with this "new testing matchmaking system" I have never ever felt that way before and always thought that no matter how hard playing Killer gets I will always be able to put up with it..
One of the reasons that I am making this post now, is to hopefully draw some attention on whatever changes they are trying to make being a dangerous step in the wrong direction, no matter how much they are trying to do this to please the "players", it is much worse than before!
I apologize for the rant, thank you for reading, please share your thoughts and feedback if you have any for me, because whatever this is, was not working for me, and I would like to know if I'm the only one or not, thanks!
