I definitely think that standing close enough to a survivor on a hook so that you can take 1 step and hit the survivor is way more rewarding than the effort it takes to do it. My biggest win streak, getting 3 to 4 kills, as killer was when I did 50 games in a row, standing about 1 step from the survivor. Near the end of it, I was getting survivors way more skilled than me and I assume I was at the top of MMR since it was 50 wins in a row.
However, my biggest grip is when someone does it from the start of the game and just judging from my games, that has increased a lot. (Also, there's a lot of forum threads about camping and tunneling which makes me think the same).
Today I had the strangest of games. We were against a slinger in Midwich Elementary, and after getting the drop on one of the survivors that one DCed, shortly to be followed by another survivor.
Me and the Claudette did what we did, I got hooked, Claudette unhooked me and then .. DCed. The Slinger cornered me and gave me the hatch, but that was the most sad match I ever had the misfortune to load into.
Source: Trust me bro
I play in a 4 man SWF and tell my other 3 teammates to DC and I still escape 100% of the time.
Trust me bro.
And which oder asymetrical Horror Game with licensed Characters could you possibly mean? Spoiler: There is no such Game which could be even close to DBD at the moment.
All the other Games out there are like a Shadow of DBD, like a bad copy. Sorry, thats my opinion.
To say somebody should just play other games is always a good answer if you don't want to solve issues and instead provide unsubstantial informations or comments. It reminds me a bit of Politicians or marketing representatives... xD
My comment is not meant to be an attack, but to make you rethink. in my Opinion the forum is also there to share one's problems with others and to find solutions to certain problems together.
Fix facecamping,I made a post about this so let me know your opinion.
My comment was more meant to be funny. I joke around in hopes that everyone will stop being so serious and try to have fun in the game, but it doesn't matter playing to win is what's important not having fun. Play something else just means play something else there's thousands of games out there. It doesn't have to be another asymmetrical horror game. If horror is the choice there are tons of horror games out there.
There is no working together to find solutions when killer/survivor mains exist.
I think "working together" can exist. For example: I'm a Killer Main (Nurse) and i played some matches in the new PTB Update and i think Nurse is too strong compared to the live build. That's my honest opinion about this topic and i believe we all can find solutions for new problems which occur.
I also play A LOT Survivor with my friends. We play a few hours every day and i'm aware of the problems which every role naturally comes with. If everyone in the community would play both roles, we could have a better understanding of the real problems i guess. As you have already mentioned, there are hardcore killer mains and hardcore surv mains out there which won't touch the opposite role at all (besides some daylie missions) and this is a problem related to the evaluation of balancing in general. In some cases, it also distorts the amount of likes of comments in the forum and it can lead to a incorrect assumptions, beacuse of the asymmetrical Player distribution in DBD.
Personally, I also had less fun on the PTB build as Survivor than on the live server. Maybe that's just the first impression that speaks from me. However, I had the feeling that the top tier killers like Blight or Nurse were overperforming.
I still have a lot of fun as survivor.
I tried before all I get is arguments. Neutral players that play both sides opinion doesn't matter.
Mains will always pick fights with you for their side. Until the day when they play both sides and see what it's like there will never be together.
"Dbd is a competitive game"
-Devs stat they want an average of 2 kills, 2 escapes per match. 🙄
Lol, exactly. I'm totally sure they're shaking their head "no" at me because they don't want to camp me. /s
I don't see campers all the time, but I wouldn't say they're rare either. And when you do encounter them it's really lame. It's the equivalent of spawn camping/killing in a first person shooter. You're preventing a player from actually playing the game.
There are times and situations where the camp makes sense strategically and is relatively fair to the person being camped. But your standard twitch streaming killer with four viewers is legit just doing it to be a turd.
Once again that comment was meant as a funny
Well, I didn't read all the comments. And with the internet of nowadays you can't really know.
This. If you're not of the extreme ideology there is no room for you. We see this concept play out in the real world all the time too.
Attacked? Where? Wow
Killer mains input isn't useless. Just because someones a killer "main" dosen't mean they never play as a survivor. I consider myself a killer main but i play more swf. If my team is getting camped at 5 gens then we actually do gens. We don't wait around for the next one of us to get tunneled/camped.
I sincerely hope that Off the Record buff doesn't make it past the PTB. Its too much.
rarely get tunneled and when i get, i simply dont care, is understandable, sometimes the killer gets punished for it and i escape, sometimes i dont, survs just need to be smart to see the payoff, no huge deal and a non-issue
Wait... are you saying you face camped survivors 50 games in a row? Yikes...
Gotta cry at least as loud as survivor cried on deathslinger so he could at least get nerfed
Nah, better yet, cry as much as killer did for dead hard and i'll assure You that perk is getting nerfed on PTB, lmao
Please don't try and speak for "most" survivors and stick to your own experience. Hyperbole is a great way to invalidate your stance from the very beginning.
Im enjoying the game still, but sometimes a few killers make me want to just suicide on hook. I'm sorry to anyone who plays these killers, but Pinhead, Huntress, and Nemesis are so boring to me that its hard to stay engaged, nothing wrong with playing them tho. Overall I still love the game, but everyone is going to have things in games that they don't like, its just how it is for games that have so many characters and perks.
