After 2 years not playing the game...
Since everybody including many former DBD content creaters are now playing TCM, an old game i played for thousends of hours a few years ago came back to my mind:
The (often not so) good old DbD.
2 years is a long time to fix things, so i thought i give it another chance. After 3 days of trying it out, my conclusion is pretty straight forward.
First the good:
-- Bloodweb is now more confortable and you earn more bloodpoints.
-- Nurse and Spirit seems to be tuned down a little bit, especially the addons. Still 4King with them every single game tho, besides beeing extremly rusty.
-- Some perks like Hex: Ruin oder Deadhard are now more fair.
Now to the bad:
-- The new maps look all aweful. Maybe its just personal taste tho. Those strange colors are a big turn off for me.
-- Way to much fog. I know, Horror game and so, but i personally and probably most others wont get scared by that game anyway, besides beeing in an intense chase.
-- Most maps got reworked and are now absurdly killer sided. Even less pallets then before (i counted 6-8 in custom games, more 50/50 then before, lack of playable loops, more deadzones. Strange choice.
-- Instead of reworking the extremly boring main object, they added another 10 Sekunds to it. Really? Thats the best these developers came up in 2 years?
-- Beside massiv survivor nerfs (less distance after hit, maps favour clearly killer, longer healing time, longer gen repair time) killer became by design even more oppresive. This might be a bit early to judge, but some new killers like the alien can do everything at once. Teleport, ignoring pallets/windows, beeing stealthy and still 115%? Seriously who came up with that?
-- Something is wrong with fast vaults. Is this a bug or intentional?
Overall, it feels like the devs are aiming for a 70% killrate for whatever reason. Stats show that 60% rate is already reality and those were apparently before some majore survivor nerfs. Why?
I will abandon survivor for a bit and see how killer is going but so far i feel i will also jump on TCM hype train and see how this plays.
Thanks for reading.
