Due to latency issues in the PTB, we have decided to postpone the server hit validation test until after the update releases on the live version of the game. We will let you know when the test will take place as soon as we can. Thank you all for your patience.

Why gen times and ruin changes are fine.

Killers just need to adapt and improve. Didn't you read the patch notes about why ruin was getting nerfed? Its used in about 80% of games guys. Come on. No other perk from survivor or killer side is used this much. Maybe bbq but I'm sure devs will wise up and make it balanced soon. Now don't start comparing DS, BT, DH which are used widely too because they are nowhere near as powerful as ruin or bbq. Regarding gen times, there is already enough counters. Listing few below anyway..

  1. Patrol gens as mentioned in game loading screen. Some maps are really huge for non billy killers but you just need to find a better walking route. Doable.
  2. With just 8 stacks of Dying light, you can slow down the last gen by almost 24% percent. Except for the obsession though otherwise it would be OP.
  3. Thanatophobia is a bit OP (needs to be looked at) but you could abuse it for now. Just need to keep 4 survivors injured most of the time for a game breaking 16% action penalty and there is not much survivors could do against it except to heal (there is a perk) or sit a bit longer pressing m1.
  4. If a survivor is in a strong area of the map and knows to loop, just break the chase and go to the other end of the map. If all survivors keep running to the same strong area, rinse and repeat until they get tired and stop running. If games get done in 5 minutes, you are just bad. Sorry.

That's just a few. I'm done spoon feeding.

Tldr; Devs have stats. Stats don't lie. Also, contrary to popular belief here, devs do play their own game at the highest level so its not like they don't know what they are doing. Looking for constructive comments from people who play both sides 50-50 and have at least 5 k hours.

    It goes both ways, sooner or later good survivors will become bored with the game as well. You know when there is hardly any challenge in it, what is the point of playing? Why buy new content?

    Either no one else understands sarcasm, or I don't. Either way, gg ez

    Another tip

    1. Just learn nurse. Its easy peasy and I have seen nurses slug all 4 even before the game loads. I have done that too without perks and add-ons at rank 1. FYI, the recent "nerf" haven't changed her a bit LOL.

    I will keep adding more points since there are plenty.

    I know the reason!

    the survivor want to have fun!

  • kimukipikimukipi Member Posts: 133

    Except I wasn't. The game is factually killer sided and I was just trying to help and enlighten the killer mains to get better.

    Oh my god nobody understands sarcasm in this community and it's amazing. It's like all people want to do on here is argue and have just become humourless shells, all from 1 single perk change.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 1,913

    Factually? I you mean the kill rate? Please you should read more about it, the japanese community manager stated that these just have to have a red ranked killer in it and that survivor rank was not taken into account.

    So you can have a rank 4 killer go against green survivors.

    Honestly it is quite easy to have nothing but a 70-80% escape rate in this game due to gen speeds. If you escape less i suggest you find yourself a couple of mates that are decently skilled and just go for gens. It is really not that hard.

    I have no idea if they will because as long as people do accept this than they will simply continue with it. But I don't see anything in the near future, otherwise I think there would've been some kind of announcement to lessen the backlash.

    I think we all can agree that there is hardly any challenge left as survivor at least I wouldn't know any unless killer is god himself. Which is so rare that i give always respect to killers who are able to deal with it and outplay us.

    I think it is sad that the devs make dishonest statements about the whole ruin thing, why not do anything about the reasons as to why players actually do drop the game? Check steam reviews/metacritic and yeah they have completely diffrent problems as to what the devs did mention.

    Isn't it a fair and reasonable argument on a CASUAL game ?

    Don't balance the game around the fun factor but keep in mind wich mecanics are detrimental to the good feeling of the game.

    Can you post a video with every killer and map to prove your points?

    As a main survivor, doing trials now is much easier, no need to fear most killers.

    Thinking better, if the community upload more videos the discussion quality may improve.

    As a former killer main… That was painful to watch. My God, this gen speed, but yeah Devs, it's more frustrating for survivor to actually learn to hit great skillchecks. Like, I wasn't even good as a survivor (never passed above yellow), but I could hit 80% of great skillchecks, because I actually cared about learning to play
