Most survivors are casuals, and casuals don't care for escaping.
Probably wouldn't change that much
...although, I can't say I'm not hoping for better que time for survivors.
You underestimate how many people will que for whatever role gives them more blood points.
I Guess they do. Look at most killers q time
You act like you're any different than sluzzy, lol.
Both of You are biased and thats a fact, just look at your post history and think for a minute, please
BT is basekit + speed buff after getting unhooked, ######### are you talking about?????
Maybe we'll get those old 2019 queues, 15 minute waits on killer with streamers getting snipes from their friends and viewers.
The decent players will adapt and survive. The crap players will wahhhhh about their dead hard crutch being gone and quit.
I got sluzzy twice. Twice they got bodied by me. When I was running basekit tracking blight 🤣. All tracking and no slowdown. Not sure what else you could want from a blight player.
when i play survivor, it's mostly solo. i'm going to give it a chance, because i'd like to believe it won't be as bad as people are saying. but i will say - i'm pretty nervous.
i think sluzzy deserves the award for most dedicated troll on the forum.
seriously, how long have they been doing this for at this point? years?
the survivor part of this community tends to be incredibly overdramatic when things on their side get nerfed. remember the giant outcry when DS got nerfed not too long ago? how that would supposedly make the game unplayable?
as somebody else said, survivors are not going anywhere. it is the easier role in the game and gives you the option to play with your friends, so it will ALWAYS be the more popular role in this game (as it should be, since we need a 4 survivors to 1 killer ratio).
I played against him and smoked him with Trapper. Then I beat on him on hook like a pinata to celebrate after I snowballed into the finish!
Same old bitter people saying the same old bitter things....day in and day out....
Hope things get better for them.
I will play whatever role is available, especially with the incentives.

Thats hilarious actually
Again, survivors aren't going anywhere. There will be no mass exodus of survivors.
Cause DBD is the only game they are good at. They'd get their ######### rocked in a game that actually required some semblance of skill.
This. People play survivor because it's brain dead easy and killer is too hard. 90 second gens and slightly faster kicking is going to do very little with the way the busted maps are
Kicking time is actually negligible in chase (few content creators demonstrated this) unless a bunch of pallets are already pre-burnt.
I don't know the total distance lost from the 'mini sprint' on hit with the nerf, though.
If anyone has the math/difference using Hold W logic (straight line), I'd like to see it, please :)
What affects my que time is a dramatic increase in killers. I see it every time a new chapter releases. There has never been a lack of survivors yet.
Casuals do care for escaping, they just won't sweat their balls off to ensure they escape.
Crap players already have sub 5% escape rate but still playing this game, they wouldn't go wahhh about their dead hard crutch cuz it didn't help anyway.
If they do care, pretty sure they aren't playing this game or playing in SWF, either way nothing really affect them.
So...I'm gonna guess you didn't see all those endurance changes before coming to this conclusion huh?
expect they don't. old graphs released show solo que survival rates vs SWF they don't just look at high mmr. As demon baby had metion, the kill rate was at a lower level then the devs wanted (what level they wanted they have not said or I can't find any info for).
Que times wise as they have started before seems to be really region specific in my area even if I play at ungodly hours or new killer release it has never gone above a min wait time for killer. So for my area even after the patch I doubt it will make a difference.
Killer's easy. Had Otz put all the time in Fortnite that he has in DBD, he would never get placements or earnings. In contrast, a top Fortnite player like Bugha would 4k every match after one or two months of learning the game and role. There's no example of a killer main switching over to CS:GO and playing it at its highest level. DBD is not that hard and the players that try to take advantage of every broken perk or playstyle are probably those that cannot succeed at other competitive games.
Uhh boy, 3days??? The outrage 🤣
Then you play at ungodly hours or in an unusual region.
Playing between 8pm-1am in Eu, on PC, with crossplay on here (btw that's how you give comparable information for queue times arguments) and my killer queue times haven't been above 30 seconds in the last few years.
Early mornings can be 5+ minutes but even on a workday in the afternoon they were 2-4 minutes tops.
pre nerf ruin times were short for me... less than 1 minute... the problem of solo survivor aren't the perks, but your teammates, who are more dangerous than the killer itself. (my last match as solo told us everything: looped a freddy for more than half game with only 2 pallets, once he finally started to think that chasing me was a waste of time since he couldn't down me he went for the others, who did only a single generator in all that time... they lasted less than 30 seconds in chases... in the end i died due to the exit gates too much close, but i did 30000 points while the others barely reached 15000...)
I play North America between 4:00pm - 9:30pm.
You probably haven't played the game for as long as I have, because this happened a few years back. I don't even remember what caused it but Killer queue times became absurd for a while. In fact, that was the moment I switched from purely Killer to half-and-half, because I couldn't stand waiting in queue for extremely long times. Its been several years, but it was averaging around 15+ minutes for killer queues.
It took months before they became normal again and I was playing solely survivor because the killer queue times were unbearable.
My friend, i also play this game since release and am on this forum 2 years as a lurker and made my account over 2 years ago.
And yes i can remember the short time killer queues were incredible long. But survivor queues were even longer at some points, for exampe in the last months before the crossplay implementation on console. And the general notion for queue times for the last 2 years during prime time (aka when the most people are simultaneously playing, 8pm-1am) has been that killer is instant and survivor takes 3-10 minutes.
Your post made it sound as if this 15 min killer queue would be the current state for you. Maybe make it clear the next time.
