its not being tunneled, or teammates leaving on hook. its these freaking insecure killers that check every profile before the game starts and when they see someone with under 100 hours they tunnel the hell out of them and then the rest of the team gets screwed at 4 gens, and please dont be one of those copy and paste killer mains who are like "but they have base-kit bt!" explain how the hell 3 seconds of endurance is supposed to stop hard tunneling

    You can't check every profile if someone is on console i cant check how many hours they have in the game, the real problem is like mooks said its the lack of info to make teamwork better, if they had something even if it shows next to there name i.e working on gen solo q will be a lot better.

    Have 5000 hours in this game and I did not even know you could see others playtime? Or is that on PC? I know where to find my own playtime, can PC players and others see mine?

    Solo problem is lack of info and bad teammates.

    I wonder why you cant scream as survivor to gain aggro from the killer.

  • NeprašheartNeprašheart Member Posts: 302

    Probably because certain individuals would've used it as a tool to sabotage their own team; Solo Queue and the mindset „whenever things aren't going my way, you're gonna pay“ is the best example I can think about.

  • ausanimalausanimal Member Posts: 531

    I'm on PC and if another player is using steam then i can check there steam profile and see how many hours they have, if its any other platform i.e epic or they are on console i can't check it i can only do steam.

  • NeprašheartNeprašheart Member Posts: 302

    And that is, if the user has public profile or publicly visible hours on record; Valve has added a feature to make them hidden. Also, it's not like the majority of players do play with private profiles due to how immature players do play the game nowadays, eh?

    How hard is it for solos to just bring Kindred every game? Should be a no brainer.

  • NeprašheartNeprašheart Member Posts: 302

    You'd be surprised, but it seems to be one of the most difficult things in the entire game.

    I do seem to be the only one, who ever bothers running the perk.

  • YOURFRIENDYOURFRIEND Member Posts: 2,272

    I'm on gamepass. I can't check profiles so I have no clue what you're talking about.

  • KatzengottKatzengott Member Posts: 613

    Not even just Kindred, could be any team/aura perk. But many solos seem to play very egoistic, for some reason.

    On the other hand, MMR (when it works) helped my solo Q exp a lot. Like almost everyone does gens now, at least.

  • EntitySpawnEntitySpawn Member Posts: 3,712

    Gonna have to disagree.

    Most games I lose will be due to DCs, people giving up or a massive range of skilled players (people that dont touch gens or able to loop while versing obviously skilled killers)

    Sure info and stuff will help but that's not the biggest issue for me, it's the DCs and bad matchmaking

  • RatbasterdJrRatbasterdJr Member Posts: 568

    They can only see other steam player’s play time. I play DBD off the Xbox app so I can’t check, nor can mine be checked.

  • ausanimalausanimal Member Posts: 531

    By giving solo q a way to give out info on what they are doing over time they will get better and matchmaking won't be as bad because solo q know that they can tell there team what they are doing i.e someone says going to save you don't have to leave your gen, Unlike now all other 3 survivors could get of the gen to come save you.

  • rvzrvzrvzrvzrvzrvz Member Posts: 528

    They just made survivor incredibly unfun end of story, why would you play solo Q when you can play killer or any other game, it's pretty clear with these queue times no matter what this killer sided forum is saying, give me double/triple BP and maybe I'll play solo q again the grind is atrocious...

    honestly played other games for a week and I already feel better, if you're playing long solo Q sessions like I used to do the game is not fine, it's anything but fun

  • WesCravenFanWesCravenFan Member Posts: 1,579

    Are you one of Xavier's students?

    How do you know Killers are checking profiles for tunnel bait? You a mind reader?

  • SimfelizSimfeliz Member Posts: 2,508

    It used to be a staple for me when I played solo. Got sick of people totally ignoring it. Don't run it as much now.

  • ausanimalausanimal Member Posts: 531

    And how many times did killers have to suffer though something that was incredibly unfun over the years like DS or DH before they both got changed, a lot of streamers that played this were able to play music and talk to people in chat while playing survivor but now they can't as much because they had to adjust how they played the game.

  • rvzrvzrvzrvzrvzrvz Member Posts: 528

    Well I disagree solo Q teams were typically weaker than a good killer BEFORE 6.1, for casual/average players and solo Q it hasn't been survivor sided for a long time, playing killer was fine even with DS and DH and more importantly most wins felt good because it was pretty hard, now beating your average solo Q team is kind of a joke

  • dugmandugman Member Posts: 9,019

    I find it hard to believe anybody intentionally checks profiles just to pick who they think might be the weakest player to target beforehand. If a survivor is actually significantly weaker than all the others it will be immediately obvious almost as soon as you get in a chase with them, there’s no reason to bother trying to guess that’s the case beforehand.

    Now that said I wouldn’t be surprised if there are some killers who look at profiles to, for instance, see if the survivor has a lot of complaints about them in their profile or whatever and maybe dodges lobbies in that case? I’ve never looked at a profile personally though so that’s just speculation.

  • NekoGamerXNekoGamerX Member Posts: 4,711

    I never look at profiles see how much time someone got in game,I mean what the point?

  • RudjohnsRudjohns Member Posts: 335

    Nowadays its not even necessary to check profiles. Killers are tunneling survivors with a low prestige number

  • AndyKukyAndyKuky Member Posts: 83

    The problem with solo queue is bad players, and there’s nothing BHVR can do to fix that.

  • VeinslayVeinslay Member Posts: 1,280

    Those darn insecure killer players, refusing to chase the 8,000 hour looper that has all the maps memorized and never messes up instead of giving themselves a chance to win by going for a target they can down before 3+ gens are done. What pathetic losers

  • StarLostStarLost Member Posts: 6,565

    It's not.

    It's there to give you enough space for your team to step in and disrupt the tunnel.

    Also - which killers are you referring to? The tunnelers I run into generally go after whoever they hook first. Wandering the map searching for one specific player is a good way to be down 3 gens before you can blink.

    The biggest problem for me is the matchmaking which doesn't work at all.

    It should actually work that way that you play with players who have a similar skill. For example, if as a survivor you lose almost every match because you are not good at looping, you would need to be paired with a working matchmaking with killers who are also not that experienced and strong.

    But I have to say I have the feeling that since the last patch, where killer's basekit was buffed, there hasn't been any matchmaking at all.

    When I play survivor (which I absolutely hate these days) I escape maybe 5% of all my matches. I'm a better killer player, but queues are too long and I don´t have that much time to wait. I never was a great survivor, I've never been good at looping and staying in chases for long. So my survivor MMR is dropping rapidly.

    The only thing that seems to work about matchmaking is that after the mmr goes down you get weaker teammates. But your opponent (the killer in this case) is way above our skill level every time. They know all the mindgames, they know all the anti-loop tactics, and it's crystal clear that we should never be paired with players like that.

    When the matchmaking tests were done back then, I had the best time I've ever had in DBD on 2 days. Surprisingly I found out at the end that these 2 days were the days when the old matchmaking (grade based) was done. And I've only been playing the game since October 2021, which means I doesn't knew the old system at all. Still, I had the most fun with it in testing, and I hate SBMM with all my heart.
