We are aware and looking into the issue which caused players to have their rank reset further than intended. If your rank was not reset at all this month, this is a visual bug and closing and re-opening the game should fix it.
We have updated our Forum Rules. Please take a moment to read through them: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/87004/

    Do you guys plan on fixing Rank Update Error in 2020?

    Hello. I am writing to ask that you look into revising the rules and making them more explicitly clear. 

    This is your forums you don't need to make up arbitrary rules in order to ban someone. You can just do it. But (unless I am wrong) it seems like you try to be fair and reasonable(???), giving people chances etc. Making rules clear will help those that do not want to break the rules able to not do so, and also allow for the mods to have less work patrolling the forums. 

    I recommend not doing things secretly, and actually communicating with individuals. Like "hey we don't like this, can you not do it". The person will most likely stop as it seems a good often they weren't aware of it, especially when you see others doing the same things... Double standards are understandably confusing to people.

    But like "Hey we deleted stuff, but you keep doing it and we are upset that you didn't stop, so here's a warning." That seems kind of crazy? Like you could of just said from the VERY beginning. Such as I did not know posting direct forum link posts was not allowed on the forums itself. The mod that deleted that could have told me from the very beginning, I am a reasonable person. Even if it wasn't a "rule", but I was asked to stop, I would have stopped. I try to be respectful towards others as possible. Just simple communication could have resolved many issues and confusion (such as I thought the link was too long and I used the shorter one etc). These things just are not clear at all. And I understand it may seem clear to you or others, but there are people it's quite confusing too still (even now I am waiting on clarification for things). I suggest not to secretly delete anything, let the person know.

    When you have several people coming to the forums in search of information and you have mods saying it is "common sense" that they should already know, or that they should find the information on "social media" and other peoples "streams". and not directly answering them... It's very confusing. Like why can't "you" just say what they are? And if you don't know how should a player reasonably be able to? 

    Players were told to make themselves aware of the rules and find the rules themselves etc, but when asking for help to do so, they were met with opposition. I understand it's your rules your site etc, no one HAS to be lenient. I'd like to think people can be at least reasonable... I guess..

    I recognize the fact that rules can change, and new things can happen that make it reasonable for things to change, that's quite fair. But punishing someone when it isn't known or making a rule to fit the "crime" after, doesn't seem right to me... Sorry. It's very frustrating and confusing. And I know others feel the same way. Especially to those that don't like breaking rules. If the rule is clear, people that don't like breaking rules, won't break them. And I believe it will also help the mods as well, not having to manage the people that follow the rules and want to follow the rules, and maybe even pride themselves on following rules.... Just some feedback, it's not meant to be rude at all. I really hope you see this and take it into consideration. I have so many questions still.

      I have examples, and many were deleted with maybe no way of retrieving... however. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/505914768863920128/678351822712340495/Rizzo_advertise.png "self-advertising is not allowed here" - That's not listed in the rules, and is also said in the rules you can advertise in the appropriate sections (apparently twitch only, I just found this out) and only in the media lounge. These types of short, non-clarified responses confuses people. Is there a difference of what is self-advertising vs just advertising? What distinguishes the two? etc.

    Can you detail how many people a single balance change has to go through before it is considered to be put into a patch? And has this changed since 2018 as if it is the same as then.....well...then I'm sorry but if the gameplay balance team allowed the changes to flashlight and pallets releasing a survivor from a killers grasp back then are still using those same mentalities now....the balance team needs a reshuffle.


    I'd like to further talk to you about your perceived balance of the game if you have the time, I would make a discussion but they always have people telling me my opinion is invalid because I main killer, a role that is getting more and more frustrating to play due to the abundance of safe, chainable loops and the dependence of a killers strength coming from survivor mistakes that any half decent survivor won't make. And if they do they have a plethora of second chance perks to give them a free loop or in some cases a free generator due to how long the chase has been going on.

      I'm still a very new surv main and "Safe chainable loops" do not exist for me. I watch a lot of very successful streamers and videos and they talk about God loops and infinites. In many of these areas I see only dead zones with no where to go.
      I have been a part of 18/20 4K groups every reset (I think 3 now) and regularly escape maybe 15% of the time including the time I escaped 6 matches in a row. I have seen these constant 4K's from all ranks. Then when many killers don't do very well they DC about 100% more than I think is tolerable. Survivors, too, though.
      I think the thing that bothers me almost as badly as the whiny DC mentality is the mentality that "Survivors are op". I'm now in ranks 7/6 (I think incorrectly ranked per my skill) and nothing about the game has gotten "OP" on my side to me in any way, not even ruin which I was fine with even when it had the difficult skill checks. I usually see these complaints when 3-4 of us escape. I don't know how many 4k's or "wins"-completely subjective-are needed to pacify so many killers but seeing what I see, as often as I see it, is pretty disheartening. I think what keeps me playing is the fact that this is a skill based game. I'm not really sure.
      Regarding survivors getting more and more benefits over killer I understand that as well. There is a massive shortage of killers in this game because it's absolutely more difficult. I understand the ideology that killer buffing should happen more frequently as well but until killers start having 4 people escape 18/20 times I don't think they have much room to complain about how "OP" I am.

      Thanks to you devs for trying, and having the courage to try, even when a massive amount of killers complain so much about how horrible a perk is that they will discontinue using it and, after the "Nerf", they still habitually use it, complaining all the while. You guys put up with a lot of gross behavior. No pun intended.

    Hey brother. Can you DM me real quick? I need to talk to you for a moment.

    Can we get stats similar to the ones posted in november? Now that ruin is gone, it would be nice to see how the game is behaving, maybe it could help clear some misconceptions.

    Why is the place where all the cows sleep on coldwind called Slaughterhouse? I thought Moo Moo and their friends are just having a sleepover.

    look at my tickets :c it's actually almost 5 months cause first time i texted the support was around 3 weeks in the error. it's where it got worse. from 30% of queues being Host Unreachable up to 50-60% and sometimes literally 9/10 queues being this error.

    January 28
  • niemniemnieeem

    i really want to play the game but it's been over 4 months now since Host Unreachable(now infinite loading screen which is worse). i can't get a game without VPN and with VPN+already not so well working servers it's a crapshow, near impossible to play - get hit by killers from miles away or miss hits on people for no reason whatsoever - and that's on top of constant rubberbanding on the map, delayed progression on objectives, no possibility to grab or blind/stun people(therefore impossible to complete certain challenges), etc. Patricia around 2 months ago said she'll inform dev team but nothing was fixed and no official information. support cucks us too by replying with generic answers or completely forgetting about tickets. please, give something, some information.

    Could you please make an official post explaining WHY does Skill Rating (rating that new match making will be based on) have to be hidden?

    This looks like a good oppurtunity to create worldwide skill ranking system and a great way to judge how well do you play compared to other players.


    Being able to see if the new matchmaking really works or not is also important (if not the most important) issue. You cant just expect all players to blindly believe that it "just works" without any proof, right?

      One of the main reasons why hidden MMR is a good thing is because it stops people from being able to game the system. If we don't know exactly how the algorithm works, we can't employ specific strategies to rank up, and we can't employ specific strategies to intentionally derank either. Having the algorithm hidden from the players contributes towards making the system a more accurate reflection of player skill.

    I bought purple key into the match only for it not to work on the hatch! Is there something wrong with the key? Pretty frustrating I tried and tried till I was hooked.

    January 25
  • Cable2486

    Soooo you guys maybe wanna look into the fact that wiggle time is now DRASTICALLY slow and doesn't seem to induce path changes or signs of struggle? It's constantly reacting like all killers have iron grasp.

    i have 1 question about this patch note

    'Fixed an issue that caused The Wraith and The Spirit not to have their re-appearance lunge speed burst.'

    This issue was just spirit skill bug right?

    not the spirit add-on bug Wakizashi Saya

      @Masantonio too bad he's 100% correct. All the devs are bad at this game and the balance is insanely survivor sided. The Ruin changes are just so poorly thought out.

      The forums as a whole are going to be getting a facelift soon. There's some more details here, if you missed it: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/110394/

      But those specifically are just for devs and mods, so people can find official responses and information a little easier.

    Peanits the new background trackers for Mods and the big boys at BHVR looks so good!


    I am curious however, to you have a no background version of the tracker, I enjoy doing photoshop and wanna do some things with it

    Wait a minute!

    If your BHVR then why does the site say you've only read your posts 4 times, despite making 4.7k comments?

      This might be just a joke and you already know this, but just in case, BHVR read isn't actually for when devs view posts, it's more like a tag that they manually apply to a post to show that they've read it, a bit like an upvote.

    Question, sir. How come you guys stopped doing the posts announcing all the upcoming cosmetics ahead of the patches? I miss them, it wold be so nice to actually see official promo photos instead of the leaks that are bound to happen every update :(
