Just did 3 survivor matches and i guess this screen perfectly sums it up it's been 3 days now and i'm still again and again teamed with new players this is annoying i cant do a single match because of that
Now thats some good tunneling
Matchmaking and ranking has much bigger problems than the rank reset.
It's broken on a fundamental level.
Honestly, if I was BHVR I would make getting crossplay top priority so the queue times go down significantly, and then overhaul matchmaking/ranking right afterwards to be more fair and specific.
I know but it started AFTER that rank reset for me
Since it, I can't play survivor anymore because the game puts me again and again and again against and with new players all the time
So even if matchmaking and ranking systems are bigger problems, for me it's the new rank reset system that broke it.
Yep, I don't think they will ever have an answer for matchmaking.
It's been doing this to me since before the rank reset.
I do. Get cross play working with consoles, narrow matchmaking to be like within only 1 rank, remove rank reset entirely, make it so it only slowly degrades when you are not playing; make it much harder to rank up in general, so it should be staying where it is SUPPOSED to be.
Then, work on all the small pip related changes to make matches pip and de pip when they are supposed to, things like Mori' and keys will have to go, since they mess up the pip system a bit.
That's very optimistic. Not gonna happen, especially cross play.
I think it's because now plenty of players have similar rank after reset, so matchmaking fill servers with similar ranks and the other players are pushed to play with the rest.
Aaaaand, if you can't handle rank 17 killer it's something wrong with you maybe, no offense.
They have expressed strong interest in adding crossplay with consoles at some point down the line; I wouldn't rule it out entirely. They don't think PC players would be at too much of an advantage, and have forwarded multiple requests for it to the development team... So they are at least looking into it.
Or left to die on first hook, which is more likely.
I can handle them perfectly fine thanks, but the rest of the team wont do anything even if i get chased for a whole hour (the screenshot i sent was just me getting sandbagged right after i got first hit, then left to die on first hook)
i just want to play with players of my level so my efforts are not in total vain
another example is how today i got chased for a good 5 minutes on the last gen by a hag in hawkins, and when i got downed, the last gen wasnt even touched they were crouching even tho they could see the obsession was getting chased the whole time. That's what i'm talking about. New survivors are TERRIFIED of the killers. They wont do anything, at best they will safe-care the whole match and that's all.
You should give playing killer a try. Its fun to get matched with 2 colours of ranks above you^^
Matchmaking is broke i got in a game rank 6 6,17, 15 and a killer 18
the bad side of getting in higher ranks is waiting longer for matches and going agains low rank killers that camps and tunnels cause nything to them will give a pip
actually i'm more of a killer main, but since im already in red ranks, i cant tell- it's the usual "those red ranks are bad / those ones are godlike" matching for me
but clearly the matchmaking sucks right now
I constantly go against 4 man red ranks when i'm just green rank
And i'm called noob player..
sucks you have to go through such toxicity, older players should give advices and tips to newer players not be idiots who dont care for your fun and insults you right after just to stab deeper
i really hope the matchmaking gets fixed a little after the next patch/update
I used to play red ranks too. but since 2 months I play more survivor so I dropped really low as killer. Sure nothing changed if you always play in red ranks, but all the killers that hit rank 10 and higher get often matched with red ranks. I think its really rare to encounter a surv team on your rank or lower. Seems like theres only rank range +6 for killers.
That's the big problem, you end up with lower ranks players because the game decided, you cant even tell your teammates are low ranks, and if you dont let the killer have fun they'll facecamp you/ tunnel you because, well, they are low ranks too, they dont like feeling destroyed by someone. So you end up in bad games where neither the killer neither the survivors do something concrete, it takes an eternity, and all that for another 10+ minutes queue with again the same thing happening
Happened to me too dont worry, right now i cant tell if it's even more broken than before but sure i can tell you it's awful.
Feels like there's a shortage of killers in most regions, making survivors queues longer and longer (especially solo queues) and matchmaking more and more inaccurate
just a theory of mine tho, i didnt check the stats at all, dont even know if such stats exist
the day this game gets matchmaking is the day I'll probably be 100 years old
Well lately I get faster queues as survivor. But almost always lower rank than R1 where im at. It doesnt feel fair on both sides atm. Tbh I can understand people pushing killer aside for the time being, so did I.
I agree. I also feel like it will get even worse. Its the first *new* rank reset and I already see negative outcome. And that ofc adds up with the matchmaking. Honestly I would prefer the old one.
Omg its so messed up. Makes me sad even thinking about it
I lost count of how many times ive seen rank 14 killer playing again ranks 6-7 only many times in a row xD
Meanwhile I just finished a killer game at rank 9 and went against 3 ranks 3
glad to see everyone agrees the new rank reset is going to explode even more, not even talking about the fact that eventually everyone will end up in red ranks making lower ranks queues atrocious and match making even more tedious
i hope they change back to the old system soon, it's still better than having to play in a thousand unbalanced games with 10 minutes long queues (not even talking about how awful it must be on console)
the system clearly failed at making the matchmaking better, and will eventually take off the monthly goal off becoming a rank 1, with longer queues for new players
this was a bad idea, i hope they got it, and will go back to the old system soon so they can work on a new system that would actually work
I always try to see things positive. But its really hard in this case.
Well maybe if the majority of the playerbase is red ranks they will balance around that. Would be something new xD
yeah but balancing around the 5% best (even tho with the new system it would soon be the 20% bests) would be pretty horrible for all the casual gamers and of course the new players which would give them even less reasons to play it, so well, that's definitely how you kill your game
It was just a joke ^^ sorry for baiting you.
There are so many thing wrong atm and all piles up. I understand that bE introduced a new rank reset and matchmaking system to improve the queue times. But it really worked out bad and im sure it will worsen. I think its good to balance around the majority of the playerbase. But on the same note you feel left behind if you are in the 5%.
BP amounts suggest them dying on first hook (or killing themself on first hook) not tunneling. 🤷♀️
if you guys are all debating about how many bloodpoints i got yes i died on first hook while 2 survs were crouching around and the last one got downed during self care
