Why do people continue to play this game?

I want honest answers here. This game has become utter ######### lately, solo que is ASS, and so are the killers as 10 matches in a row were face camping, slugging, slowdown perks out the wazoo. I honestly want to know why people play this game. Do you tell yourself after raging that you won't come back but still do and live like this every week playing this game?

Maybe things would change if people would stop giving BHVR money.

Too bad the community won't do anything to change things. Find another game, take a break, and do other things. There's other games to play, some of you make this game your life and you really shouldn't have.

(I am not attacking anyone but this community is confusing as hell and if people think the game design is #########, then why give them more money and your time when you know they really don't care what you think?)

    Because it's fun, I can turn my brain of while playing killer and just have a fun time chasing people. Or I get a SWF together and play some survivor perk-roulette and have an absolute blast (perk-roulette in general is a blast, even for killer). Overall, things just get better when you stop caring so much about the game.

    That's what I do as Killer is just be silly like chasing survivors but run past them and act like they are chasing me or Hook someone and then step back and nod at the survivor that thought they were hiding to rescue the one on hook etc...

    And tell me Dead_Harder, what is "fun" to you? You like getting facecamped, solo que teammates that do gens, and so on? Or are you one of those players that don't care about these things? Prefer an actual conversation.

  • XaneXane Member Posts: 45

    You did, congrats. Now join the massive uproar of people who said 6.1.0 would be the death of this game and yet here we are with probably the same people still playing.

  • XaneXane Member Posts: 45

    Thank you for giving me an honest answer. I just know a lot of people can't stop caring and they'll continue to cry, and if they are truly against the game, don't play and don't give them money. I think soloQ is ASS and always will be. SWF or not caring as killer is the only "fun" left for me.

  • Z0mbiv0rZ0mbiv0r Member Posts: 31

    Basically it's the most fun I've had in ages. This game is awesome, despite its flaws, and if you don't like it I would suggest you move on and find another game. Expecting people to not play the game because you don't like it as it is does sound like you're making your life revolve around the game.

    There are plenty other games out there you can enjoy, so why getting bitter over one you clearly hate?

    Had Demogorgon not existed, or got removed back when ST left DbD, I would've left and never come back

  • MetronixMetronix Member Posts: 219

    Yep, I can only add to the answers that were already givin. I'm having a lot of fun and (unironically) as a solo queue Survivor main. All the issues that people talk about seem a bit bit petty to me. That been said, everyone has different expiriences and maybe I have just a long lasting pile of luck. But the "problems" with solo queue I encounter are always things, that could be explained by "humans make mistakes. Thats normal" and overall I don't take the game too seriously. Winning or loosing gives me a certain amount of bloodpoint, I make progress, the rest doesn't really matter. And the Rift missions are entertaining (mostly). ^^

    Thats what I'm saying. low mmr and maybe even mid mmr solo queue may unplayable but High mmr won this patch. It's truly fun instead of bad players with perks.

  • Unknown2765Unknown2765 Member Posts: 585

    This ^

    I play both sides, and i have fun on both sides... but i never used DS, so i dont suffer from "i cant play with out DS" syndrome.

  • SonzaishinaiSonzaishinai Member Posts: 6,891

    Because i still have fun and it's one of the if not the best game of it's genre.

    One thing you have to realise is that more often then not is a vocal minority.

    Even if every single person in these forums complained about the same thing they still wouldn't make up a single procent in the total player base.

    Those complaints still need to be listened to ofcourse but also be taken with a grain of salt.

    10 post about how bad soloq is on the front page may seem a lot to forum standerts but on a whole not really anything to go by

  • DroneinthrwindDroneinthrwind Member Posts: 56

    Because friends still play it, but they do it less and less, so do I.

    We searching for other games already because survivor experience after 6.1 went to crap and bhvr can go to hell for selling solutions to problems that should be fixed by them without needing perks or spending money to "enjoy" the game.

    I still play. Less than I used to. I stopped buying auric cells and licensed characters ever since the matchmaking system was changed.

  • jesterkindjesterkind Member Posts: 4,238

    Throwing my own "because I enjoy it" into the pile.

    Outside of people leaving a lot (which is admittedly very annoying, but seems to be passing now thank god), my solo queue experience got better after the most recent patch, and the same goes for my killer experience. I'm enjoying playing this game and think it's heading in a very healthy direction, no self-hate here.

    The game's not actually bad, gang. You're just frustrated with it.

    To crush your enemies. See them driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of their women.


  • VikingDragonXiiVikingDragonXii Member Posts: 2,401

    That was sarcasm Xane I really don't believe that in one but. I do agree they may of over nerfed a few perks but overall this is a good patch. What truly is making this patch bad are the whiners and quiters who are ruining the SoloQ experience by DCing or refusing to actually play the game normally. I yet to face one of these many campers that are apparently rampant that everyone is talking about

  • drsoontmdrsoontm Member Posts: 2,924

    Insulting players who enjoy the game because of your ineptitude and/or dissatisfaction will not give you any points.

    You don't like it? Move on. Hey, there is a free 4vs1 available right now. You have the choice waiting forever as one of the 4 or play the utter mess that's the 1. Enjoy.

  • Zen_but_not_ZenZen_but_not_Zen Member Posts: 230

    The game can frustrating in solo-q, but i still enjoy the majority of my games, you obviously come across survivors or killers who will annoy or do something to antagonize you. If i get say 3 or 4 straight bad games, i'll usually take a break thinking 'yeah, that's enough of that', play another game, or do something else entirely. I can't imagine anyone consistently playing back to back games if they're seriously frustrated or in a bad mood. I would like to think the general consensus is, games are meant to be fun. I know fun is subjective, but if you find yourself not enjoying something, stop, take a break, do anything else. Why torture your mental health.

  • HugTheHagHugTheHag Member Posts: 1,802

    I only play survivior with friend.s so that's an excuse to spend time with them.

    And I don't generally have a bad time when playing killer, so I still do sometimes.

  • BranBran Member Posts: 1,817

    I don't doubt people enjoy the game and being real I could get back into playing it, but bhvr will have to keep making good changes.

    Imma be real. Dead By Daylight will get no praise from me. It has survived the test of time and has a devoted community, but the game itself is subpar at best.

    The only reason I still somewhat care for the game, even if I rarely play it, is because I have some hope the devs will make it better.

  • Huge_BushHuge_Bush Member Posts: 3,923

    I’m definitely in mid-MMR(if not lower) and I’m finding my teammates to be pretty okay. Sure, no one is looping the killer for 5 gens, but many know to get on gens.

    While I do see a lot of tunneling, I don’t see much of the camping people whine about here. Maybe 1 out of 8-10 matches someone gets camped, unless it’s endgame camping.

  • SeraphorSeraphor Member Posts: 5,226

    Because I don't take it too seriously.

    Because I'm not a sore loser and expect to lose roughly 50% of the time.

  • GloamGloam Member Posts: 651

    I actually like soloQ, yes it's frustrating sometimes but if you play for points and not escapes it's extremely doable to finish with 20k+ almost every game. I just wish the matchmaking was better when I get a team where we're all at least 1.2k hours escaping still isn't that hard but when I get teammates with 300 hours I know I can't rely on them and I have to play for hatch. I can't even offer to take chase because they act allergic to gens and follow me around with a gd flashlight. So yeah a lot of ups and downs but overall enjoy it.

  • RatbasterdJrRatbasterdJr Member Posts: 702

    Just because you don’t have fun, doesn’t mean the other 99% or the player base doesn’t. I love DBD, and still have tons of fun playing it. The survivors I go against most of the time put up a good challenge. I usually play blight and just go for crazy 180 flicks.

    Solo q isn’t as bad as the forums make it out to be. The forums represent 100 players out of 50,000. Majority players aren’t on the forums complaining, they are on the game having fun.
