Yes by all means lets strengthen the survivors even more after all the power role right? This game is completely balanced to give all the power to survivors as is, they keep it up there will be nobody wanted to play killer. So tired of the entitled survivors. Killers are supposed to be the power role!!
The devs are still stubbornly holding onto their first vision of dbd. But the fact is, if swf stays they need to buff solos by giving them free information like abilities and rework information perks.
Survivors should have automatic bond/empathy and kindred. Give survivors the number of totems crushed. Give survivors a way to hide their auras from trolling team mates. Buff killers accordingly and bam, the gap between swf and solo is so small it shouldn't matter who you are playing with anymore.
A very simple solution being avoided bc immersion? Who feels immersed in dbd anymore? Game is just a brightly lit race against eachother now. If they want a more immersed dbd maybe they need to just make another game mode that's darker and slower paced. Hey one can dream.
You could just, you know, type out the perks you are using. They already have this ingame.
Except matchmaking isnt a set in stone system, or tied to any competetive nature. It's literally to ATTEMPT to get the BEST POSSIBLE matches at the time. Dodging only causes more issues for other people, and makes you wait longer for a game. That may be worse than the "bad matchmaking" one.
To get perfect rank matches, a large group of people would have to end up waiting 10 15 mins EVERY game at the minimum. Which isnt acceptable.
Nobody should dodge. Period. You hit join lobby for a game. May be easy, may be hard. It is what it is. Play it and move on. Cherry picking lobbies and DCing over stupid [BAD WORD] is childish and selfish. It also says you're afraid of a potential challenge, but hey, some people need easy mode or they wont play.
Please, think before talking. The strongest thing in dbd is 4 men swf group with voice coms and meta perks. But they will already know what perks everyone is using due to pre made team and just simply communication. This, will NOT buff the strongest thing possible survivors can have. It ONLY buffs solos. Swf groups won't gain anything from that. They will not be stronger. So I don't understand why you complain about that
No sorry. I see no point versing an omegablink rank 1 Nurse with 3 other survivors who just bought the game. I will gladly dodge and leave the empty place for you to fill :)
@kid187em LOL You realize we can already ask ourselves what we are bringing right?
This would just cut to the chase instead of wasting time asking.
Also, for those saying “this would cause lobby dodging...” Nah not really.
I’d rather have someone with 1 perk than someone with 4 meta perks who only went in to BM and be useless.
You clearly are bitter about something so lemme explain.
This information is only gonna help soloq and small SWF groups (like groups of 2) in that context, the game is actually perfectly balanced. Since soloq is pretty much a free 4k anyways.
You say killers are supposed to be the power role but to what extent? Is a rank 20 killer supposed to win against a rank 1 Survivior no matter what? Is a survivor supposed to be heavily disadvantaged and forced to outplay the killer multiple times over and pray to god their team actually does something.
You sound more entitled than any Survivior main.
Killers bein able to see the survivor perks would just be broken. Just imagine all the lobby dodging.
That would be really sad if that turned out to become a serious problem. Who the hell would leave a lobby just because other survivors aren't using meta perks? I at least like to believe that there aren't that many immature idiots in the community.
No thanks, I don't wish for people to dodge because I'm not running meta perks
I doubt many will do that. Most people would just accept that you don't have meta perks. Unless you are a Blendette with a stealth build, I don't see many dodging you.
We must not be playing the same game.
Their is already a dc epidemic of people just leaving mid match because they got found first, people suiciding on hook, people verbaly assaulting each other in the end game chat.
I got harrased because I didn't kill myself to save someone, for using no mithers and for playing sneaky
If their is one word I wouldn't use to describe the community is mature
Even when some survivor dodge the lobby (might not even be because of your chosen perks but more because of ping), whats the big deal? It would take just a few more second to fill the lobby again. I would gladly sacrifice some more seconds in the lobby for seeing all my team mates loadout and play more optimal in during the match
Now wait just a freaking second here pal..you do realize that weaker killers are being kept from much needed fixes to combat swf strictly because of solos?? In fact..so many perks, powers, and changes are going withheld for that very reason..they've made buffing solos their #1 goal..to buff solos to swf power..then killers have to bite the bullet until they finally get powered up to match it..and you claim they're AGAINST you? What rock are you living under dude?
I don't think buffing solo survivors to match SWF is what should happen. SWF power levels are much higher.
I think SWF should be nerfed, if anything. Solo survivor is the true experience the devs wanted and ended up caving in to add SWF when people threw their arms up because they couldn't play with their friends.
U can't nerf swf. Voice coms is the strongest tool survivors can have. Watch how Marth88 and his mates were destroying killers with 0 perks and just voice calls.
What else? You want to buff killers to combat swf and let solos left behind to suffer even more? Good luck finding survivors joining you lobby, we already have very long killer lobby Qs.
Also, if you think those buffs in my post would insanely buff solos to swf level you need to activate your brain. That's not gonna make solos op. It's just going to make it less frustating and a little bit more coordinated.
The perks being shown in the lobby should be added.
But the entity legs during chase should not. It shouldnt even be there for the obsession.
Randoms suck..its reality..but your sitting here saying the devs are neglecting you when killers have taken a backseat to solo survivors..its just so wrong
I really don't understand your point. What are you trying to say now?
I already said it plain as day..
Indeed. This is ultimately a good thing for everyone including the Killers.
Also Power role just means the individual members of one role is stronger than the individual members of the other role.
So in this case the Killer should be stronger than a Survivor. That doesn't mean he needs to be stronger than their entire team at once.
If this game is to be balanced then the Killer needs to be equal to the Survivor team in strength, since this makes him stronger than an individual Survivor this also makes him the power role.
Using the "needs to be the Power role" makes sense when discussing the Killer having the advantage in individual chases or other 1v1 interactions such as the hatch endgame. But doesn't hold up when talking about making the Killer stronger than the Survivors in terms of more general actions such as Gen Pressure and saves via multiple Survivors working together at once.
There are other arguments that could be used (for example he still needs to have Gen pressure even if the Survivors do still need to be able to make progress), but not the "power role" argument.
This kind of ally tracking information is one such situation where "Power Role" doesn't work as a counter argument, since it isn't a 1v1 interaction.
Well, Idk what to say if I don't understand it. Bye then I guess.
The worst part is the mobile port literally has this feature in the game. Why can't we get it on the PC version?
Why not though? Swf have that information, it's only fair for solo survivors to also gain at least some of the information that swf survivors have. It's the only proper way to balance this game.
I really wouldn't call solo queue a free 4k though. You can still play quite optimally even when solo queuing. But it's in general much harder, so any information that solo survivors can get that swf have is very important. I mean, if swf have it already? And you can't get rid of swf.
How should they nerf swf though? It seems much easier to buff solo survivors. And swf is very important to the game. You can't blame people for wanting to play with their friends.
basically you want as killer to get all info about survivors. but survivors can't see even wich killer you are... :)) so, what's your point? :)) just because they are 4 ? :)) i would like , as main survivor , to see what killer you are, and to talk with you in that chat :)) but hey, not gonna happen :)) and also , by that image , to see characters perks changes everything ... because you can change your perks to have better build :))
oh... well nevermind, forget what i said before :D
