We've been made aware of error messages when attempting to purchase the Rift pass. The team is currently investigating, and we'll post an update as soon as we have more information.

UPDATE: This issue should no longer occur. Players who were affected may still be missing currency and/or unable to spend Auric Cells. We are working on a solution to resolve this and restore missing currency, and will update you as soon as possible.

  • First step for BHVR is to come to terms with the fact that the current course of action they have been taking to deal with cheating is mostly inadequate and worthless. Instead of dealing with the actual source of the cheats/hacks, they've seemingly been putting more effort into dealing with cheaters and hackers. But at the…
    Раздел: Any chance for a new Anti-Cheat System? Комментарий от knell 13 янв
  • Well, obviously you've already made up your mind that BHVR is withholding the skills rating information to "hide bugs" or have some other nefarious reasons. Of course, it could just be that they want players to just focus on their matches and do their best to escape/kill instead of focusing on some numerical value assigned…
    Раздел: Pretty sure the sbmm is broken Комментарий от knell сентября 2021
  • Is it a problem? Doesn't seem like it to me - like I said, the system seems to be doing exactly what the developers are wanting it do, regardless of whether it's what you or I want. And yeah, patience is a virtue. Compiling data takes time. So why should the developers listen to reactive players' handwringing when they're…
    Раздел: Pretty sure the sbmm is broken Комментарий от knell сентября 2021
  • Sure, but I don't like throwing out random conspiracy theories on what could happen without substantial proof. And I don't see the point of all the handwringing on the first day of bringing out a new system - personally I'm willing to wait several months at the very least to form an opinion. And even if you were right and…

  • They aren't lying. It's still easier than the old system to play a brand new killer if you were in the high red ranks, but probably not as easy as most of us thought it would be - after all, they are aiming for a 2K2E average in the end. Though I do agree that in my personal experience, they had probably overshot the…

  • It was your first match since when? Because if this is an extension from the last test, the data is compiled from the last several months. So if you had a run of multiple wins with ANY killer is the last half year or so, it had taken those samples as a consideration to place you, even if your old "ranking" indicates that…

  • From the "Skill Based Matchmaking Recap" News from June 14th, 2021 "Halfway through our test, we were seeing many reports of high-skill Killers being matched against low-skill Survivors. At around 1PM EST on Thursday (around halfway through the test) we enabled a system that would assign unrated Killers a starting Rating…

  • "And our current system doesn't [BAD WORD] over new players?" Yes, the current Ranking system is awful for new players. That's the entire point I was making. "Also, BHVR literally said they'd get 60 FPS on Xbox One and PS4 2.5 years ago." I'm talking about the SMMR system; not their failure in the optimization…
    Раздел: Do You Want MMR in DBD? Комментарий от knell августа 2021
  • "They don't have to address anything. See optimization." True - I guess they don't. But I believe the whole reason why they are taking these steps is to address these issues. Why else would they be doing this? "They could've just updated the pip system, but they chose to make a mystery MMR system." Updating the Ranking…

  • "Basically though, if you want good teammates as Survivor, you're going to play against Nurse and Spirit all day." If that's the case and what you say is true, SSMR will show the reason why - that certain killers (in your example, all killers not Nurse or Spirit) cannot seem to make progress after certain rating no matter…

  • Of course I do. I want to play against players of equal skill level. Not a fan of curb-stomping newbies or being stomped on by players who have thousands of more hours than I do. All game designers should strive to make their game fair for everyone.

  • Balancing at the top is one of the most basic tenets of any 'vs' game design. It doesn't matter how asymmetrical a game is or whether they are played competitively or not. There is no such thing as 'balancing for the average players.' Good game design is ALWAYS balanced at the top. The reason why a game must always be…
  • ? Is my post not showing up in its entirety? I've already mentioned other ways to keep matchmaking times sustainable without breaking the balance of the game.
  • To me, any advantage that breaks the overall balance of the game would be considered "unfair," regardless of whether some people think it's only 'slight' or not. Like I said earlier, you can always manipulate the proper 4-1 ratio by rewarding the less played roles with some thing (BP, etc), and increasing the reward…
  • "I don't see how match making can be healthy though if there isn't a very slight net advantage given to playing survivor on account of match making." To me, that just seems like an assumption on your part. What I'm saying is that the 4-1 ratio for matchmaking can be maintained without needing to give any advantage to one…
  • This assumes that players only choose the Survivor role based on how powerful they are. Maybe players choose roles that are more "fun" to them, and not because they are easier to win. Maybe they simply like the characteristic of that role (e.g. - being chased vs chasing, playing alone vs playing with others). Maybe they…
  • Let's say that in a fighting game, a tournament level player finds that a certain character can pull off an infinite combo that none of the other characters can do, but only the top 0.01% of the player base is skilled enough to actually do it. Should the game designers of said fighting game then just ignore the infinite…
    Раздел: Truetalent vs Oracle team, what do you think? Комментарий от knell июня 2021
  • And I've already stated why it's not an exaggeration and why my main point still stands. I've even altered the analogy to make it simpler for you to understand. You wanting my point to be a false equivalence and repeatedly calling it so doesn't make it one. And ultimately, even if it was one, it doesn't make one tiny bit…
  • Like I said, my analogy is nowhere near an exaggeration when you are simply comparing the massive differences in players' experience level in a given match, and the obvious outcomes that often follow it. You poking holes in situational differences seem to indicate you don't understand what analogy is. Kindergartners can't…
  • I'll just ignore the run-on sentence since I still have no clue what you are referring to about the 30 year old woman. In many of my matches, the skill level difference between players are unbelievably vast to the point where I think it's more than fair to compare these matches to a basketball match between toddlers and…
  • Then that's a problem with their balancing philosophy, if what you say is true, and not the problem with MMR. Regardless of the difficulty level of attaining the skill ceiling for specific characters, they should all be viable at the very top. It shouldn't matter how easy or hard the characters are to learn, they should…
  • They'll be forced to balance killers when (or if) they see that top survivors' MMR scores are much higher than the top killer-types. The reason why it appears that they currently don't care is because of how they are interpreting the data they are getting from the Ranking system. Did you know that the "Red Ranks"…
  • You're right; I do equate it as the same. That's because I think your (not just you personally, but those who have continually spoke against the MMR system) "enjoyment of the game will go down with the MMR system" BECAUSE you won't be able "to curb stomp babies." Or at least, you won't be in much control of whether to or…
  • If the top SWF gen-rushing teams on comms continue to dominate against the top Pig or Shape killers, then MMR will show that. SWF's score will keep rising while these killers score will bounce back and forth, maintaining the same level overall. That in itself will show that balance changes will need to be made for those…
  • We'll continue with this basketball analogy. How does beating up on a bunch of kindergartners in basketball make you feel like you are making any self-improvement? As more and more baby players join, you have more and more opportunities to be matched against those who have less experience than you - players you are able to…
  • How about you? If you are playing a game of basketball, would you be more or less satisfied winning against a bunch of kindergartners 20 out of 20 times, or being able to win 10 games out of 20 against people of equal caliber? Ultimately, whether you are for or against this MMR system will tell you what kind of a person…
  • "And aaaaaaalll this text is useless, because you could get a 4k within 1 minute and derank. Therefor, the goal to sacrifice as many survivors as possible simply cannot be the win condition. Winning doesnt make you lose progress. So there are other things you need to balance it out with." I've already stated that ranking…

  • "You play against each other, but one player winning DOES NOT mean the other player lost. Hence, the game not being competitive. I agree that the setting FEELS competitive, but its not. Who loses if everyone won? Again, the only winconditions that COULD make the game competitive, are all arbitrary." There is nothing…

  • Oppositionary games arent always competitive. Party games arent always cooperative. I think you just don't understand the definition of competitive games, despite most people here trying to explain it to you in the simplest way possible. Perhaps you just don't want to understand. Any and all games in which one player is…
