We need to talk...

I have been playing DBD for quite some time now, and I have always loved this game, until now.. I'm a main survivor (solo, red ranks) and I have to say it's a freaking nightmare..

First I have to wait 5-10 minutes to even get into a match, just to be camped, tunneled, slugged and moried, even before I get to earn enough points not to depip.. An average match takes about 3-5 minutes before all survivors are slugged or killed.. It's just not fun anymore. I am sad having to leave the game, because it's always been one of my favorites, but at this point it's just not worth it anymore. I can't see how this game is supposed to be balanced? In every single match, the killer gets 30-40 k points, while my co-players and I have to praise ourselves lucky just to keep our ranks?

I gave up escaping long time ago, usually I am just trying to keep my head above water, and earn the points needed to keep my rank or pip, but could We at least increase blood-points for doing gens, totems, healing ect. to at least make it worthwhile for survivors? Most of the time I find myself thinking "I might as well DC, because I haven't gotten to do anything" when I am getting tunneled, slugged and moried for God knows which time.. I am not a fan of people dcing, but I can't say I don't understand why they do it.

Something needs to be done, we are not all SWF teams and though they might be OP, we struggle on the solo surv side -.-

    I hope, I will not hear the words "we need to talk" for a long time in my real life... but what dbd matters, you are right :).

    Totems destroying could really give more ep. So would maybe also some survivors learn, that there is a way against all the hex perks.

    I feel you so much. I've given up along time ago on escape but when I needed to do the escape 5 times it was such a hard time. The first match I played with it I was so close to escape but no one was going for the last person so I didn't make it out. At this point I'm just there to protect my teammates and die.

    I'm on level 69 on the Rift, all challenges 1-4 done. Once I reach 70 I am having a break.

    Well, I will stick around for the double blood but having a vacation after that.

    But like to de-pip people. Now I'm sad as a killer.😜😆

    you should try civ 5 maybe?Jokes aside,its like that for killer against swf groups.You just watch as they tear you apart and do gens,and as solo when i play i have 3 minute chases and people do 1 gen.They should just buff solo survivors to swf levels in terms of communication and that would be enough probably

  • MAVMAV Member Posts: 52

    If your average match is 3-5 minutes as a red rank then you are doing something terribly terribly wrong... If that's a dramatic exaggeration, then what else is an exaggeration?

    I also main survivor... Sometimes I'm unluckily... Very rarely am mori'd... And most matches last over 10 mins if not more...

  • KingMyersKingMyers Member Posts: 57

    Ok calm down keyboard warrior it doesn't have to mean they do anything wrong, I've personally spawned into quite a few different matches with the killer literally only needing to take 4 steps to apply terror radius/see me and at that point your fate is at the killers hand, if they wanna camp you it's game over if they have a mori and your team is stupid it's game over either way matches CAN end in 3-5 minutes

    Solo Survivor gets very annoying. The Devs definitely need to buff Solo Survivors, because exactly this happens to a lot of solos. I personally dont have these experiences, even at red ranks, every game, but maybe it has to do with the platform/region maybe? I play on PS4, NA servers.

  • PotatoGodPotatoGod Member Posts: 5

    Imagine actually caring about ranks. Ranks doesnt mean anything. Killers mainly do that because high rank for killers is literally annoying. Everyone gens rush, flashlight and septics. So to have the edge you just do those. I personally dont cause i like people to have fun, also the reason i dont care about ranks and also why sometimes i dont kill unless toxic behaviour. So just dont care about ranks, depip and enjoy like medium ranks. You meet better killer who well are better than most. rank 1 killers and are fun. Also most killers arent like that. Some are just toxic and like people to be salty. Best thing is just depip and have fun but try nor to be too toxic

  • SlimyTacoSlimyTaco Member Posts: 130

    Maybe ranks dont, but getting about 10k points for running the killer around for 5 gens is absolutely abhorrent.

  • Tr0gTr0g Member Posts: 241

    Survivors are OP, that's why few people play killer, that's why your queue times are long. You losing so often is just you being bad. Killers need a buff so people want to play them more.

  • dkyguy1995dkyguy1995 Member Posts: 45

    I think the devs seriously need to consider the amount of BPs survivors get. On PS4 it takes like 10 minutes to find a survivor game and they get half as many points as the killer. Killers find games nearly instantly. I think the problem is Killer needs a huge incentive to play just because it takes much longer and is much harder to get good at compared to playing survivor. I'm not sure there is an easy solution

  • dkyguy1995dkyguy1995 Member Posts: 45

    Yeah being hyperbolic doesn't convince people you're right it just makes it sound whiny

  • DiamDiam Member Posts: 50

    Yes they can end in 3-5 minutes. Yet how often does that happen? Rarely for me when I play survivor. And if they do I say ggwp, go to the next game, and not even consider complaining on the forums because I lost a match.

    As a killer main swf stomps my ass every time. I have noticed that although killers do get alot of bp not alot of pips.

  • MAVMAV Member Posts: 52

    Read his post and it states the AVERAGE match is 3-5 minutes... Never said a 3-5 min match is impossible, but to average 3-5 mins at red ranks (or any rank) is highly improbable... So perhaps before going all "keyboard warrior" yourself... You should read both posts

  • hammertimehammertime Member Posts: 51

    I feel the exact same say. I lose matches on purpose so i don't have to play annoying survivors and i dont care for rank i play for fun.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    How do you buff solo survivors without buffing SWF as well?

  • danielbird11danielbird11 Member Posts: 149

    I am sick of entitled killer mains always saying this sh*t it's not true. Survivors lose so often because there is nothing we can do to counter what killers do. Killers have been buffed to the point where survivor is near impossible to play right now. Unless you play swf which good killers can still demolish if they play right not to mention most bugs in this game favour killers over survivors. Killers just need to stop corrupting this game by complaining and just git gud and accept that wins are not just handed to them on a silver platter.

    As someone who's red rank on pc and ps4, I feel you. The higher the rank you are the longer the queues (red rank is almost 10min, green is almost instant on pc), and the sweatier the games. The game is being adjusted as "killers vs. SWFs" whereas solo survivors just get screwed. The kindred buff is the first time I've seen solo survivors buffed in a long long time.

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 3,007

    Why is it fair for a survivor to have equal BP to a Killer? You understand the reason people play Killer is mostly because of the BP difference. Would you like lobbies to be 40 plus mintues while everyone fights for the few Killer mains after the difference between Survivor and Killer blood points is exactly evened out?

    A Killer has to deal with multiple people while juggling them has to deal with keeping Gens undone while keep pressure on the map. A Killer is by themselves so they don't have to fight for points except against the survivors.

    Survivors have to loop a killer, be a little altruistic, and sit at gens to put pressure on a Killer. With 4 people doing this you fight for the points. You have a limited amount of gens, healing, totems, chest, unhooks, pallets, and doors throughout the entire trial. With 4 people actively engaging in these to obtain points.

    Also if you deal with mass amounts of slugging you put Unbreakable on. Seriously change your build for what's happening. Like I tell everyone a build should cover your weaknesses. If Slugging is prevalent at your rank and games it's time to adjust for that. Meta builds are Meta for a reason, but not learning is a mistake many players commonly make on both sides.

    DCing is a issue. If your DCing or debating it then your also part of the problem or becoming close to it. Chances are if your not gonna Pip or safety then you haven't figured out what you need to do for Pipping up and getting a Safety.

    Also the Cap for BP on both sides is 32k unless a event makes it possible to go above it. So if a Killer or Survivor is using a perk slot for BBQ or WGLF they are attempting to get BP quickly. While BBQ has a aura effect as well that helps most people are using it for BP. It does help, but it's not as game changing at high ranks that people act or think like it is.

    Mori it might feel bad, but did you ready up? Bring a Key? TTV streamer in your lobby? Many factors go into why a killer could of brought one. Remember that the killer is another player as well. What happened to make them want to bring one?

    I feel like if the game was that bad you'd just stop. Instead of whining here. It sounds like you're justnot good enough for the high ranks. Which is not an insult. Im not either as a survivor. Which is why i stop playing survivor once i hit about rank 7. SWF is a lot more common than you think. So high rank killers have to be efficient. That's just the way it is.
