Is anyone else getting bored?

    I know that I am biased. But after 900 hours of play (not including playtests at work, which are on a seperate account), I'm not bored. I always find some new situation or some weird thing happens to keep it fresh.

    I get bored of chasing Survivors up stairs so I just stopped doing that. Umm...I can't think of anything else, though. Playing Killer only is a joy.

    If you are tired play something else for a week, try Civilization or something for a refreshing change.

    I'm in the same boat. I play both. Usually hit rank 1 with both sides. But have always considered myself a killer main. I take long breaks. I go away for three months, come back, pick it up. Play for a month or two and then have to take another break again. I've never seen a problem with that.

    Lately I've preferred survivor. But for whatever reason the game went from killers sitting in long queues to survivors sitting in long queues. Which is kinda weird. But it makes me not want to play survivor. Kinda weird to sit in queue for 50 seconds and get 1 hooked every game because I play solo always.

    Think I'm about to take another break. Oni comes out tomorrow. So maybe that'll catch some interest. But it's surprising that in three years there haven't been any changes to the game. Everything's the same. Windows and pallets. You would've thought by now they would've come out with something else to make it different. But new killer, new survivor, new map. That's what they offer. Games still pretty good. Just gets boring.

    Nope. I just play on and off. Was playing Pokemon all last week. Still kind of am but am also playing DBD. Playing too much I do get bored but right now I'm fine.

    I get a bit bored playing against the same killers over and over again as survivor. Other than that, the game is still pretty fun.

    Hey uhhh, no-mend legion is a challenge you do as a survivor. It has nothing to do with being legion, you just try to manage your mending timer by being in different states where the bar doesn't decay

    Honestly, for me it's the rift that's done it. In the past I would take breaks for a few days up to a week when I was getting bored. Now I feel like the rift has pushed me into playing a lot more than I normally would, and I'm completely burnt out. I've played maybe 3 games in as many days.

    In fact, i'm way less bored thanks to the Archives.

  • kisfenkinkisfenkin Member Posts: 141

    I blame grind burnout. The rift in particular has caused a significant increase in grind, and because of that I've played much less in between finishing the challenges of each level.

    The challenges have also drastically decreased the fun of each match, because everyone is going for a challenge and if you aren't helping them or are getting in their way they just want to get on to the next match.

    Yeah DBD has been boring af for me as well. Not even KYF is nice now

  • PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 5,165

    I've been getting that feeling as well. Except I've been playing both sides, game has gotten stale for me, I cant play for more than a few matches now, especially at high ranks, its just not enjoyable at all for me.

    I still play the game but I just dont really have fun anymore, I get SOME fun rounds here and there but most have me sweating and just not having fun. So I've stopped and only play a few games every now and then. Then I move on to playing the game I've actually been enjoying for the past 3 months

  • TigerKirby215TigerKirby215 Member Posts: 604

    This is why I play Survivor Roulette. My friends get pissed at me for playing random Survivors with random perks but it gets boring to play the same Survivor every freaking match time and time again.

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 1,036

    I always get addicted to one multiplayer game at a time. I was first Call Of Duty Zombies, always played one map for a few weeks then switched to another one for a while. Recent years it become the multiplayer from the new Call Of Dutys, from about advanced warfare onwards.

    However I've been consistently playing dead by daylight for two years now. I had a short break for two months during the summer last year but since then I've been on since. I wouldn't be able to play this game if I wasn't playing with my mates, since I love to talk. I would've stopped playing a long time ago if I was playing killer.

    However I'm also getting a bit bored of the game. It has nothing to do with the game since there is more reason than ever to play this game. I just want to have a nice few months break but I have nothing to replace it with. If they remastered the old Black Ops 1 or 2 games then I'd definitely be having a break.

    This is why I say make a new chapter that gives survivors some core new abilities (Not with perks)/adds some new objectives

    ...but I’m fairly sure we’re gonna wait till next gen consoles until this can be a thing.

    what if proning and climbing were added as examples? Opens more dimensions for new perks and killers.

  • TangledNoodlesTangledNoodles Member Posts: 112

    @rd_dex LOL love the reference, yeah I've been doing civilization for a while now 😅

  • FibijeanFibijean Member, Trusted Posts: 5,991

    Fun fact, originally survivors were supposed to be able to climb things. That's why there's no collision on the shack roof, and a hole through which you can drop down into the shack. They decided against it, though I'm not sure of the exact reason - perhaps because they didn't want survivors to have the ability to get out of reach of the killer.

  • GodDamn_AngelaGodDamn_Angela Member Posts: 1,063

    I have some huge issues with battle for neighborville. Most notably the lack if rewardatron updates since release (ie. None) and the weird balancing but it's fine. Glad someone is getting enjoyment out of it. Lol

  • VLightVLight Member Posts: 49

    That's the problem with the balancing of the game. It would be nice to not see every Killer run the same builds, but I don't blame them for always running Ruin. It's very rare for me to go against a Killer who doesn't have Ruin, and doesn't get gen rushed, if they're not playing Spirit, Billy, or Nurse. Ruin just seems like a necessity for most Killer players, and I'm pretty tired of seeing it every game. But, once again, you can't really blame them.

    As for BBQ, who doesn't want double BP's? :)

  • dont_ask_me_againdont_ask_me_again Member Posts: 489

    Cool to know... I hope they don’t close off the ideas for the future... proning into small holes at tiles would be a new way of evading etc

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 1,494

    This is what I've been saying for quite some time, killer gets new playstyles new perks new builds.

    As survivor, hold m1, learn new loops and that is it. Nothing changes. Yeah I do feel similar, i didnt buy the dlc and think i will not. Right now I am just bored af, remove nurse and get fun killer like forever freddy.
