We are aware and looking into the issue which caused players to have their rank reset further than intended. If your rank was not reset at all this month, this is a visual bug and closing and re-opening the game should fix it.
We have updated our Forum Rules. Please take a moment to read through them:

hey guys :) would you like to be good at the game? Are you trying to be better and have some fun while maybe escaping more? you came to the right place.

RULE NUMBER 1: forget self care, or at least learn how to use it. Self caring in the corner is how you LOSE games, trust me. You lose so much time you don't even udnerstand how bad it is. Sometimes healing urself is good, but not all the time . Try to search for teammates, try to do a gen in a safe spot so that if the killer come to you, you can loop him/evade.

Learn to know where people are, so you can search for them and get some heals, don't be afraid of being injured and don't hide all the time. hiding is good, being in a bush all game kills your teammates.

Got it memorized? :)

    RULE NUMBER 3: If you can't find teammates, it's best to have the perk BOND so you could find your teammates so they can heal you.

    wat? that's the opposite dude. People with self care can't be injured for half a second, i usually spend most of the time injured, and that can be a bad thing obviously, healing is [BAD WORD] important. im not ranting for no reasons, im simply tired of seeing two of my teammates self caring with no real purposes in the corners of the map. Im not syaing self caring is absolute trash, im saying that u can wait and heal where it's more efficient and spend the rest of the time rescuing people/doing totems gens and so on and so forth.

    For your interest, if i run around injured, do something, then find you at another gen and you heal me the team automatically gained time, which is the key

    If you are a player who enjoys getting chased (but maybe hasn't figured out all the best map safe spots) take Self Care.

    If you are a player who prefers to stay hidden and do gens without being caught (you better be doing gens!) just take a med kit as you most likely won't get more than 1-2 heals off in the match anyway.

    I'm a player who prefers to avoid conflict simply because I enjoy getting things done without ever being seen (I am the ghost) and typically don't get hit. You can still get boldness from cleansing totems.

  • _LC_LC Member Posts: 103

    People took this at a personal level haha wow.

    My point was to give an advice to newer players that waste a lot of time and don't know what's efficient and what's not, hope you got it

    Use self care, no problems. Waste a [BAD WORD] ton of time and screw up the whole team by always being somewhere else selfcaring, that's a problem.

  • Arturo990Arturo990 Member Posts: 6

    @MegaWaffle oh god typical claudette p3 main with urban and sprint. Chase start: " go down instantly" "every single pallet down in 1 sec" u are that kinda a player lol the worst :)

  • Mister_xDMister_xD Member Posts: 3,751

    considering that we are talking about NEW players here, this is not a good piece of advice.

    yes, high level players win like that. i know that. new players on the other hand are neigther good at looping, nor at hiding well, so telling them to be oneshot AND be louder for the rest of the match is the wrong advice. chases would just end asap and they would get comepletely dominated.

    and yes, if there is a mate around they should not selfcare but instead heal with their friend, definitely. but if no one is around, there is nothing wrong with selfcareing.

    also, if they have adrenaline and there is only 1 gen left, they shouldnt selfcare and instead fix the gen, agreed.

    your strategy only works on survivors who are at least decent at looping. new players however dont even know that looping is a thing (at first) and are really bad at it, once they do find out about it. being injured is just a hinderance for the min these situations.

    TL;DR: good strategy for decent - good survivors. some points i agree on (healing with a mate instead of both selfcareing next to each other, fix the gen if you have adrenaline), but overall this will be a hinderence for newer players.

    Lol, yes, don't ever bring self care. Also, don't heal against Legion or use fountains against Plague. All excellent survivor advice.

    I run self care because 1 person off ges is better than two off gens to heal. Plus I run BT and I prefer to be healthy when I go in for the save.

  • SadonicShadowSadonicShadow Member Posts: 1,138

    I am slowly starting to move away from self care aswell. Ever since i got DBD back in September of 2017 selfcare has always been in my builds 99% of the time. Only recently have i uncovered the true glory of not healing. Just run Adrenaline and slam the gens as hard as you can. I also make it a point to run We'll Make It. Practically instaheal your team mates off the hook so you are ready to go. If you must heal yourself in a pinch you can always bring a medkit with you.

  • MiloMilo Member Posts: 4,682

    @ClogWench You know how many times i regret not taking Self Care at the 1v1 before EGC?

    But at the same time i'm getting injured 24/7 soooo

  • BithardBithard Member Posts: 406

    Or just run what suits your play style. Self care helps a more independent solo player that cba putting up with crap randoms.

  • SchwiftySchwifty Member Posts: 70

    Alert aura reading to ping the Killers location + keep switching gens once the previous gen you tapped goes off = never have to mend so don't need self care.
