2v8: The most requested gamemode.
2v8 has been a gamemode that has been requested since...Well, ever since Players started getting bored of holding M1 down with their friends as Survivors and want to try queuing up as Killers together to have an enjoyable experience experimenting with their favorite Killers.
Recently, there was the reddit Q&A, in which, someone had asked why we haven’t gotten this gamemode at all yet. To which, it was replied with a comment we always got about it. Seriously, every time someone asks for 2v8, it’s always shut down due to ‘balancing issues’.
The Deathgarden team, another team that is within BHVR by the by, recently experimented with their most requested gamemode: 2v10. Honestly, even if it felt ridiculous having to go up against 4 turrets or 32 mines, I don’t think anyone was disappointed at all with what they were given. So, I have to ask...
Why hasn’t it been looked into to have a 2v8 PTB to see how the process would go? This wouldn’t hurt anyone at all, it would give the devs A LOT of feedback on how Survivors and Killers feel about it, and literally no one loses anything out of it besides getting the chance to voice how they feel towards the gamemode. Deathgarden has been out for a year, has seen an entirely new rework, and has already been testing the waters of a new gamemode, while DbD continues to keep the same generic mode we’ve been used to for three years now.
Seriously, would it actually really hurt to just...Try letting US, the community, experiment with this..?
