Huh? What?



there's a special place in hell for four person all red rank swfs who all bring purple flashlights with iri bulb and purple lens with the express purpose of gen rushing while 1-2 of them constantly blind the killer the moment they down anyone or attempt to chase them off a gen

yes this is very specific and yes i am a little mad that SBMM decided that was a fair matchup on a killer i've barely used and didnt even have any tier 3 perks on yet

I'm still convinced that they didn't actually put an MMR system in and just used this as an excuse to hide ranks.

Yeah its in. Every single "Rank 1" match I have now is try hard without exception. I miss having one or two games chill before going back into the swf killsquads.

Running lightborn when I see 2+ flashlights has become a routine of mine. Works wonders at making them waste their time for the first attempts.

Bonus points if they resort to body blocking and I have mad grit on.

While franklin's is a funny one to bring, it feels more worth it when there are more flashlights than medkits or toolkits. Or do both, with a green hand offering, just to tell the survivors that they're playing your game.

Running Franklin's for toolboxes depends on whether I'm thinking they brought a lot of Brand New Parts.

The problem with Franklin's vs toolboxes is that survivors will spawn on top of gens and use all their toolbox charges before you get there. It's wonderful for robbing people of their medkits though. Games go much smoother when everyone doesn't have a free health state on tap

Medkits are almost always mathed out to being exactly X health states, so even a nanosecond on the ground fucks the survivor. It's great.

I do kind of wonder how survivor MMR is calculated, since I just envision my typical game as survivor (do 3-4 gens on my own, get downed, get left to die through two hook stages) as the game declaring I am Bad and those other three who profited off me as Good

So after just a little time now, multiple streamers I talk to have pretty much all said, SBMM has made survivor more fun feeling mostly, while killer feels way shittier than ever and that mostly checks out lol

One guy I watch a lot last night just got game after game after game of super sweaty last second key, toolbox etc. switching whole rooms and sounded like they wanted to die by the end of it, like good lord.

It's brought the survivor advantage at high level play into sharp focus for sure.

Yes.

i think itís a perception thing, but itís loving with my head how it feels like it takes forever to catch up to survivors when they run in straight lines vs. how long it takes killers to catch up with me when iím doing the same.

iím just now starting to play survivor after being rank 1 killer with 400 hours, thinking that i would be able to use the stuff i learned and it turns out i was so wrong.

Just bought DBD, as well as the meyers, ghost face, and pyramid head dlcs which were also on sale. I'm really excited to dig into the game. I've been watching a ton of videos and I think I have a decent grasp on how to get started, but man this game seems obtuse.

Buy Leatherface. He's an easy killer to use, has a perk that is beneficial to anyone else.

It's definitely a game that's been like, built vertically without ever expanding the base much. Also yeah Leatherface is a pro buy nowadays, he used to be purely a perk battery character for BBQ & Chili, but he's actually fun and usable now too.

Screaming is the only useful thing that we can do.



I had a rough time as killer, never thought I would ever click with it - then I bought Leatherface a few days ago. After I done well with him I even switched to The Huntress, Spirit, Hillbilly and Pyramidhead to get some dailies and owned bones with 4 kills on all of them. I suppose part of it is the luck about which survivors you get but I don't feel like I'm being punked any more. The Spirit seems like a real tough one to get the hang of.

I want to get to Rank 70 on the archives in 29 days - currently at 30. Don't think I'll make it.

Once there was somr unclaimed purchase notification bug that randomly handed out $10 worth of auric cells to a fuckton of players.

We even got to keep em... though likely only cause BHVRs wasn't competent enough to tell who got what & separate accidental from intended recipients.

Different, but there was also somewhat recently this wonderful graphics glitch that allowed players to mix and match their cosmetics outside of their "sets."

Naturally the fuckers worked hard & fast to fix any means of activating this awesome, harmless bug everyone prefered over the dumb, often arbitrary restrictions.

Hell, they even fixed it before addressing some major game ruining issues going on at the time. Can't remember exactly which set of major game bugs it was though. Maybe the always hitting though pallets thing?

I think the outfit "good bug" had to be fixed quickly because they have pretty strict appearance contracts for their licensed characters. But that said, there's zero reason to lock outfits for their original characters.

Boy I sure hope they fix Legion soon playing them feels like dogshit right now because of how bugged they are

(for those not aware Frenzy accidentally had its FOV shut off so there's no illusion about how slow you actually are while in it and its just. legitimately disgusting feeling lol. Also there was apparently a bug where sometimes you'd down people with frenzy but they hotfixed that poo poo. ...also sometimes your killer instinct just doesnt work right.)
