Quit nerfing killers for the wrong reasons

Can devs please quit nerfing killers because some green rank survivors are salty because they suck and call every killer that wins OP? It happens everytime man. Make killers great and fun again. Give us more of a choice besides nurse, Billy, and spirit! I've already heard the whining about a nerf for Freddy already. At least let us console people enjoy him for a week or 2 before you nerf him to unplayable. This has got to stop though. We want more viable red rank killers. Am I wrong or do you agree?

    I dont think there has been a patch where survivors didnt got nerfed since the release, but when killers get nerfed (?) them killer mains go crazy. just nod and smile y'all

    Check out the steam global achievements for the proof.

    The figures are exact though as only 25% have levelled a character to 25 so going by that 25% of killer players may have in reality reached rank 10 and 40% of survivors rank 10.

    It's not exact as it depends on how long they play for overall even after reaching certain achievements.

    Out of the 90% green, 30-40% don't understand how to play the game, play stupid, or don't wanna learn how to avoid the killer, die, and complain that the killer is to OP, and that's when the first nerfs come. Then it goes live, and those percentages grow even more. How is that fair balance?

    I got to rank 9 fast, I highly doubt the 10% to 5% ratio.

    How is that? Because I'm asking them to quit nerfing killers into the ground? Go play legion then. Go play wraith. Go play pig. Go play leatherface. Tell me I'm wrong. Try any other killer in red rank besides spirt, nurse, or Billy and let me know how well you do trying to main them with all the nerfs. I'll wait..

    Keep in mind that only 25% of the community earned more than 1 million bloodpoints. So only 25% or less are active players. If you take this you can basically, say that around 40% of the ACTIVE players reached at least rank 10

    Wow, thats quite surprising, how many survivors have reached rank one?

  • mcNuggetsmcNuggets Member Posts: 767

    The game on rank 10-20 is just facecamping, tunneling and hiding in lockers.

    Also the killers are smurf accounts.

    So they really didnt' do their job good at this one.

    Just wanted to post this since y’all posting things

    Already done that thank you and I can do well enough.

    Wraith had a buff and at red ranks he can be strong in the right hands. Pig was a nerf to traps when egc was active which was needed but her main power the ambush and stealth not the one which is designed to slow the game down before that point and not kill. Leatherface well he needs some love probably a rework to gibe him some map pressure but I can do well with him in red ranks. Legion is another story his problem is DW is not a punishment he needs a complete overhaul.

    You see how I posted the above? It's not crying or calling one side out saying its unfair it's called feedback without being overly dramatic and acting like those you claim to be at fault.

    to be fair that's the global achievements of all players ever, Probably including people who played on free weekends or people who picked up the game for a while and dont play anymore.

    The Devs should have the actual stats around the average daily player bases and their rankings.

    The problem is in the definiton of what killer mains define as red rank viable. they say that nurse billy and spirit are those who are viable, but as survivor side they are not viable theyre just op cause they outplay different game mechanics you as a survivor cant counter. killer mains are mostly just biased that way. and because of that killer will get nerfs untils theyre out of those three mentioned. playing against them with redrank are most unfun games you have besides those "jerks" who just camp and tunnel the whole game.

    Well, with the right Legion changes, you guys would make me play the game again. I would lie, then I would not say, that I am waiting for it. So at least one would for the right balance changes log in again :).

    That's also the reason why I read every news I can get from dbd and also why the game is still installed - so I get instant the news^^.

    Still... I would love to log again into dbd. But seeing the Legion in this state is too much for me :(.
