  • I never saw a more absurd claim from you then this. People always claim that 75% noise reduction could as well not exist and that it doesn't do anything, and this is utter nonsense. 100% noise reduction just took away one of the killers main tools and completely cut it out of the game, without any setup, work or…
  • The current tome challenge also has a "sacrifice four survivors" challenge. A mori, even a free and characterful one, is not a sacrifice. Challenges like this will always skew the current gameplay.

  • This is throwing me off so hard, too.
  • At this stage, I can't tell if this is sarcasm or real, and this troubles me.
  • Hello and welcome! Just to make this short, some salty players (especially if they were among those two that got sacrificed) will claim that this kinda behaviour is against the rules and will spurt stuff like "Ya'll got reported. Enjoy your ban!!!1", claiming that its against the rule of "working with the killer". But…
  • I complained a lot about FTP+Buckle Up, which was really disgusting for a two perk combo, due to the lack of any real counterplay when pulled off right. At least in this case here you can drop you item at a safe place, if you really need it for some special occasion.
  • People called me "absolute trash" when I dared to M1 someone with Billy last night, who were running the busted loops so tight that there was quite literally no way of sawing them.
  • Its rough, but 4 flashlights in the lobby is also an amazing slowdown that very few other perks can even hope of accomplishing.
  • Sometimes, the sheer fact that someone saved them is enough to instill in them a last spark of rebellion and they might turn around and give it their all. It happens, and I guess its kinda worth it, considering that the alternative is just a wasted game.
  • I have been running a mostly chase oriented build on my main (Pyramid Head) for the longest time, and it very fun and strong if it works, but the second you make one big blunder and lose a chase/let a survivor escape, it tends to all fall appart, because you have literally no gen regression and all those other survivors…
  • This! Its a well researched and wll though out complained about a details so miniscule and with absolutely no impact that like 99% of the people couldn`t care less about. Thats what dedication to a nerdy topic is all about.
  • I nerver played much Blight, as I a) was terrible at playing him and didn't want to sink countless hours into him, and b) mostly avoided him for the same reason that I avoided Nurse, because they are the designated top dogs of the game and I wanted to be generally good and not just with the strongest stuff. But I also…
  • "Are you sure that they were cheating? Unless you got prove it might just be a skill issue?" Meanwhile the survivors: One of the more aggrevating subtle cheats is the "teleport in front of the killer when they pick up for a timely flashlight save". This one is really strong at gaslighting the killer into thinking that they…
  • One solution could be to group the maps into different colors depending on the main one, like "greenblue" all the forst maps, "yellow brown" Eiry and Dead Dog Saloon, etc. I don't think that we would need more then 5 categories and you could then assign a new color to each one.
  • Basement Bubba would be the only one who got anything by doing this, and even basement Bubbas aren't a big part of the Bubba community. On a sidenote though I REALLY hate it when I as the killer start smack in the middel of the map. You got no real clue where the survivors might have spawend, as indeed they might be…

  • PTSD. This perk is forever burned in the collective killer consciousness and any successful DH will just reopen old wounds and dark memories. I hate myself everytime I fall for a dumb, baited DH when a wounded survivor turns midchase and tries to run past me and survivors seem to be starting using it more and more again.…
  • BHVR!!!!! This is important, so listen up! Please make "Decisive Smooch" the gimmick of the next Valentines Day event. Don't question it, just do it. Thanks.
  • It's also mind-boggling that the events bloody eye, ie the BP offering, was bugged from day and they didn't manage to fix it is time. A bug is an bug, we could life with that, but they didn't remove the eye from the blood webs, forever teasing me if it might be worth to get them, just in case the eyes got fixed mid-event.…
  • The thing is that Exhaustion perks are such an important and defining class of perks für survivors, they are the closest they got to powers. Old DH was a severe problem, because it was dominating the game and had insane pickrates; DH was suffocating the whole game. Lithe and Sprint Burst, while annoying, are just the kind…
  • This are all very good suggestions. The BP are an utter joke, I mean it IS a joke mode, but no need to make the BP so painfully low. And I even de-pipped a couple of pips (I am down to zero pips again) before I noticed what was going on. THAT I think is unexectable, like why punish the players who just want a little laugh…
  • Just for your information, I lost 5 pips over the course of an evening, when I was 1 pip away from pipping up, just because how asinine this system can sometimes be. One de-pip was because I dared to play the April Fools game mode. What a joke, literally. This update can't come early enough.
  • Two can play and Shadowborn … try it out ;)
  • Expect it 6 month after they nerf FTP+Buckle Up :P
  • Two can play and Shadowborn is a much more fun combo, imho. You can literally see the confusion when the survivors get blinded themselves and you get a massive speed boost on top. Its just the sweetest form of payback.
  • A Zanshin nerf would be a cute foil to WoO, like you know, one of this perks is the most played survivors perk and the other the least played killer perk. And they literally do the same. Shows of how different value the same information can be, but you could utterly nuke and murder and gut Zanshin, that wouldn't impact…
  • For real! I made a monthly reminder to BHVR to please remove de-pipping for various reasons, and they FINALLY did it! This is soooo cool! I can finally play anyway I like and give cute survivors hatch or whatever, without hurting my progress or fearing to have a couple of sweaty matches afterwards that cost my all my pips…
  • It's the same with Spies in Shadows, you can tell people how great and fun it is and how often your little crow spies will rat survivors out and give you literally eyes in the back of your head, theory crafting will always prevail and win the discussion. I couldn't care less, the less killers are running it, the less…
  • Because the last time we had 5s DS was old dbd. The game has changed much in the meantime and the pressure burned all idle bumbling and doing cute things out of survivors, leaving just mean and lean efficency in its place. Gens are already flying and many feel that tunneling is their only defense, however small and…
  • The hate stems from the robot-like playstyle it often promotes; as the killer you can pretty much tell when someone is just running for the next big yellow blob on their screen, predropping, beelining to the next yellow blob ... there is a reason why some people refer to it as "WoO yellow brainrott". And there is really…
  • I once abstained from the game for 6 weeks, but came back in time to grind out the whole rift I the remaining month.
  • I als dig the news about the new animation, it's just a little thing, but sometimes this little things count. Same within Nemesis vaccination animation, I love that they implemented this, because the general self-healing animation never looked right.
  • I Kinda missed the good old days were I had an alarm clock on my second screen and took notes when someone got hooked, bonus points if they aggressively tried to get in my face, only to be picked up 61s later. Awww. Or when the last survivor unhooked their mate, both went down and stayed slugged for 1min, just to get rid…
  • What if basekit WoO would blend out the closest pallets and vaults, but showed you the farest away. This way you would have a general idea where the dead zones are, but hadn't pinpoint accuracy of all the pallets that are nearby during a chase. I actually really like this idea, it might just be what soloQ and many mid-tier…
  • OMG, I remenber this one time on Dead Dawg I came about 4 Claudettes in bushes, and they had some choreography, where they would BOOP up in sequence and had quite the elaborate dance routine. It was so precious and I nearly shed a tear when I put them on the hook. Just kidding :D
  • Usually when I am stomping and was obviously matched with survivors way below my paygrade or when the last survivor gives up. I want some kind of guesture of submission, like, if you run the whole endgame from my and try to "win" the regular way, then I will accept that and put you on the hook if I get the down. But if you…
  • If slowdown is your whole concern, sloppy still does that, just a little bit on a timer. If they let it run out before healing up, you already got your slowdown or at least a good time in which the survivers where vulnerable and M1 downable. This game is always a give and take, you can't just overburden one side too much,…
  • 30s is absolutely ok, it was the 8s heals out of a medkit with 4 heals total that was a problem. And of course CoH giving everyone cracked infinite solo-heals. Healing already took a pretty big nerf and now most survivors opt to not heal at all but just slam gens with Resiliance enabled and Adrenalin at the ready. At one…
  • I really asked myself what's the point of playing Sadako now? Yeah, she was way overtuned during the time of easy condemn and teleport frenzies around he map, but when BHVR reworked her that last time, they came so close to genius with that "locking condemn in" mechanic, bit failed so spectacular by setting a limit. Two…
  • You called killers who don't want to sweat "entitled" and them not sweating as "slaughtering survivors". This two statements are colored in a quite non-neutral way, and even though you might have meant so differently, it comes off as severely biased and antagonistic and I can totally get what @fussy might feel like this…
  • Especially during Events I play rather chill and try to somehow interact funny with the survivors, occasionally, but this event seems that survivors are dead set on leaving in 4min, if they can manage. Sheeesh, never saw the gens fly faster before. And the SWFs also seem deadset on not allowing a single hook, if they can…

  • I get it that stacking 4 gen slowdown perks is really sweaty and mean, but that part about "Eruption-levels of absurdity" robs your comment of all credibility. You sound like you were around the Eruption-meta time, so have you forgotten how it was back then? Such claims are just utterly rediculous.
  • Bad sportsmanship should affect everyone deeply, its rude and only works, because of the anonymity of the internet as a cover allows people to live out their base character traits. I want the general killer perk "Just Leave" so bad and would equip it on every killer first slot permanently, because I am so sick of the exit…
  • I guess its time to try Freddy out, again... wish me luck in the fog.

  • That's, the ago-old adage of "we are not genrushing/tunneling, but just doing our job". At its lowest level, that might be true, but the game is much more nuanced than that. Actions have consequences and ultra-efficency is often contra to a fun game, where both sides have time to do some fun stuff. @CrypticGirl Yes, the…
  • I would love for that bloody eye offering to be functional again and working as intended. I love playing The Unknown at the moment, but of course that one can only use whatever Bloody Partystreamers that I found up until now, and they are all spend. I know mostly use Moris to compensate all those Sables map offerings. And…
  • Just on a sidenote, I had the strangest lobby occurence as a killer today. I joined a lobby of 4 survivors already waiting, one of them being a mighty p100. Nontheless, I ready up imediately and after a couple of seconds the p100 survivor lobby dodges. After a short while the vaccant spot gets replaced by another, but…

  • Playing killer sure isn't easy or braindead or a piece of cake from my side of the screen. The survivors i usually verse are using every trick in the book and play as BP to the walls as possible and give not a single quarter ... until the next game, where suddenly one DCs 40s into the game, because they went down to a…
  • It depends on the stage of the game. If its at 1 or 2 gens remaining I would slug in order to generate pressure, but if it happens at 5 or 4 gens? Yeah, I'll just hook you, you basically gave myself either a free down or went at least down next to a hook. In the early stages I don't care about the self unhook and dwelling…
