This Has To Stop Now

I see that matchmaking is so broken the devs hid ranks saying it was a mistake they could be seen. There is no way a rank 5 should be getting ranks 10 lower, I was playing solo (rank 15), and the matchmaker is supposed to stop at six ranks higher (rank 9 I guess). The other option is to remove SWF from ranked matches. If players "want to play together" they can do so using KYF only.

Its bad enough the stupid rift challenges are making it impossible to have a normal game as Killers are desperate trying to get 4 kills in the basement today.

In future rifts consider challenges that dont cause players to ruin the match for others be they killer or survivor. Personally I would like to see more skill (less luck) based challenges. Example escape the match using no perks, escape the match using only No Mither, for Killer sacrifice three players using no perks or addons.

    I concur. I guess its possible they qued solo based on region and the matchmaker did its best to match them, but it is a fail for everyone else.

    That actually looks like a decent matching. Most of mine I get all colors of the rainbow for ranks.

    And I'm going to disagree with 'escape the match using only No Mither' as a suggestion for challenges that don't cause players to ruin the match for others. I can just see loading into a game and seeing three other survivors with no mither. I will likely just give up right there - even one no mither tends to make me sad.

    I've been trying to get this stupid 4k in basement today and i get the 3rd done then the last one will dc im so over this bs

    Bro they could of been part of a party. The party system uses the higest rank and match makes that.

  • kid187emkid187em Member Posts: 102

    Couldn't agree more, the dcing that prevents challenges from being completed is just BS. If the DC it should count as a completion. How is the killer supposed to counter that?

    What's the issue here? You should be grateful a purple rank was in your lobby to carry you.

    Same issue, everyone is white ranks except for me. I play solo survivor. As killer it's the other way around. I get red/purple rank survivors and I'm rank 10. It's actually so annoying when your team mates and the killer are literally rank 20 and I'm not lying about that. Most my games are with rank 20s.

  • StrayDogStrayDog Member Posts: 25

    Aren't you being a little dramatic? I'm rank 8 but because I play with my rank 16 gf I end up in matches with killers closer to her rank but it's not like that makes the matches a guaranteed win for me

    Honestly the best way to get people to stop complaining is to remove the ability to see your opponents names and ranks. Basically make it anonymous, people are going to send hate messages for their poor preference no matter what. Might as well take away the candy from the children who can't hold their tongues. Just let people play however, even if you get waffle stomped, use that as motivation to play better.

    I'd pay a whole .50 cents to have my rank reset back to 20 so I can have a more carefree feeling while playing. Either that or a rankless casual mode.

    I don't really care to get good at the game, nor have I ever for any other game. I personally would like to be Rank 20 again just so I can get some of the more difficult/tedious achievements and Tome Challenges. I play games to have fun. If I win, cool. If I lose, I generally don't care if the game was fun. As for the broken rank matchups... If Behavior wants to fix this, do something like what Overwatch had done: Make it so higher rank players can't que with players X number of Ranks lower than them and have the Killer search be determined by the highest rank member of the group. So, let's say you are rank 6. You can't que with your rank 13 friend, but you can que with your rank 10 friend and get a Killer at roughly rank 6. If none can be found within 6 ranks (3 above and 3 below the highest player), then you just gotta wait. It'll be annoying to wait, but it's what needs to be done to allow SWF but not allow games where any given Survivor is drastically better than everyone else.

    You got more blood-points than the rank 4, use your rage to play better if you want to kill them next time. No one goes into a boxing match and asks the referee to have your opponents hands tied behind their backs just because they have been fighting for more years than you. You probably wouldn't have had any issue if you killed them all, but received less blood-points. There isn't enough players who play dbdl to always have survivors at your rank. So basically pick your poison. Do you want to wait 30min for a game? Or would you rather just play a match or two against some people who have a lower rank. You won that game, you got a lot of points. Also side note, those people who have lower ranks, you can learn something from that encounter to play better. No one likes a sour puss.

    BHVR is looking into it. They stated as much in their Q&A.

    "In future rifts consider challenges that dont cause players to ruin the match for others be they killer or survivor. Personally I would like to see more skill (less luck) based challenges. Example escape the match using no perks, escape the match using only No Mither, for Killer sacrifice three players using no perks or addons."

    Have you read the Forums at all? People are losing their minds over how "Difficult" the current Tome is. Imagine wanting to make it harder.

    I would like more challenging ones myself but many players seem to find even Tome 2 too difficult which is hilarious imo.

    I seriously doubt youre old enough to play this game if youre complaining about a few higher ranks, no adult would complain about nothing

    EXACTLY i dont understand why swf gotta do killers dirty amd on top of that ..unfairly. they can totally take their toxic bullshit to KYF . Cuz frankly im sick of the rank concept. Actually no. It wouldnt be a problem if players werent toxic try hards. That then make killers try harder lol

    At this rate id rather be rank 20 as killer. Cuz i get swf left and right its exasperating

  • leslie4445leslie4445 Member Posts: 44

    You cannot compare the game like that . Theres levels and styles to this [BAD WORD]. But some ppl would like to play casually. If you wanna test your skills then yeah the ranked matches are fine but not everyone likes the idea,cuz how fast ones enjoyment can disappear with swf. If someone is constantly calling out the killers moves. That takes no skill and it kills what little horror the game has left to offer.

  • leslie4445leslie4445 Member Posts: 44

    Yeah no one likes a sour puss. I think what were getting at is that we need casual option. Cuz this is just a game not real life like your comparison to boxing. Yeah i get what you're saying about getting exp by getting wrecked.

    The whole point of any game is to enjoy and have fun. This game is not always fun and laughs. For both sides.

  • lamekillerlamekiller Member Posts: 23

    I had to stop playing just now because if this I'm a rank 17 killer why do I have to face three rank 11 and one rank 13. I actually get this alot and on lower player nights I'll face even worse a few weeks ago I had two red ranks drop in and destroy me. How am I supposed to move up myself if I keep getting matches that are over in a few minutes and I dont even get a chance.

  • DanteMorelloDanteMorello Member Posts: 142

    Yea surely the game will be so interesting only with solo queue...

    If they ditch it then I'm out. Playing with friends is the only good mode where you can rely on people and don't get randoms in your team who don't know how to play.

    Just had myself (8) with three survivors (4) (9) and (11) against a cocky level 2 Freddy. Was great fun...

  • SleepyWilloSleepyWillo Member Posts: 981

    This is literally matchmaking as intended. Its designed to be +/- 6 ranks. If the killer is rank 9 they would get survivors between ranks 3 and 15. This is actually matchmaking working perfectly.

  • SleepyWilloSleepyWillo Member Posts: 981

    This has nothing to do with SWF. If, for example, a rank 5 and a rank 15 are in a SWF group the killer is supposed to be matched off of the more skilled rank - the rank 5. So in that example the killer should be between ranks 1 and 11.

    This isnt a SWF issue. This is a match making issue. If you have an issue with SWF then please post that to a different thread so this one remains on topic. Thanks ;)
