What would you guys think about having a Legacy Event?
To start off, I love this game. I'm currently approaching 1000 hours played and admire everything about it, even if there are still bugs and issues. I've grinded my ass off to get p3 - all perks on a few of my favorite characters and still enjoy every bit of that hard grind. It honestly feels like I've earned what I've worked for and that feeling is quite rare in today's video games.
I want to talk about legacy, not just the outfits, but how the game was. I started this game in late 2017, and played heavily near mid 2018. I've been looking into the past through Youtube Videos and the game seemed A LOT different back then. Animations were different, Perks were different, even the Atmosphere seemed darker and had a more horror tone.
Granted, the playerbase was a lot newer so even if there were twice as many pallets and survivors had the ability to pallet warp, it would be pretty cool to somehow experience that for people that have gotten into the game recently or may want to revisit what Dead by Daylight was. The game feels like it has grown from a little middle kid to a college student. That's NOT a bad thing, but it just looks like a completely different game.
Would it be possible at all, in the future, to have an event that we are able to play pre-patch 1.3.0 and experience what the past was even if the game wasn't perfect? We could maybe have a possible option to grind out at least 1 full legacy set using the old bloodweb, which would take a REALLY long time from what I've heard. Would there also be a way to integrate it into the main menu to switch between current DBD to Legacy DBD for people that don't want to participate in the event? I feel like this kind of reminds me of Vanilla World of Warcraft in which the way this game is progressing, the old version is basically a game that once existed and will further be distant with time.
Side note: I know they're bringing Classic WoW back, I just wanted to make that a reference since it fits quite well in what I'm trying to get across. Sorry for the wall of text.
