I guess you can say... the game is dead...
>Multimedia giant produces shitty triple A game that has huge explosion of players in its first month due to shilling and marketing, but they quickly leave due to the game being trash or shallow
>Dead By Daylight is produced by a small study and is spreading by word of mouth, starting off small but growing bigger and bigger due to popularity and good reviews and personalities endorsing the game
You're a faggot OP.
>Shitty servers that make even getting your key a pain in the ass + crash bugs aplenty + shallow depth
>most people have played and stopped until it's out and more is added
>still breddy good for no marketing, but not exactly amazing no.
Also, I love wrecking people as the Killer. People think Jukes will save them, but smart killers are on to their shit and will go around or fake them out and head them off at the pass.
>alienware just gave out over 9000 keys for this game
I already figured out the way to totally fix this game.
They aren't some indie developer.
They're literally experts at making shovelware:
just look at the thread. the game is stupidly fucking buggy. so buggy infact that theres literally no possible way they'll fix even half of them without making much, much more.
thats not even their worst thing. saves are stored locally. you can hex edit them to have whatever the fuck you want. you want a level 50 killer with all 4 perk slots open and all available tier 3 perks? you got it pal. just hex edit a few values and presto, yer OP as fuck.
i love the game. a lot. just as much as i love evolve. the difference here is that behavior and starbreeze know the game isnt worth $60. it might not live very long but im sure it'll live longer than evolve. the real deciding factor is if behavior is as incompetent as turtle rock or not. we cant tell at this point.
$16 aint much unless you're NEET and if you enjoy the 'beta' then you'll probably get enough playtime out of it to warrant the cost. bite the bullet my man. the game is fun enough to get your moneys worth, minimum.
I should have been more specific.
Basically, make each generator fixed have a 50/50 chance of requiring some gasoline. Gasoline cans are found in the mission area. Each can could probably fill up like 2-3 generators that need gas though, and you could have perks that make this a little easier. (Example; 'Running on Fumes' increases the chance of starting up a generator without needing gasoline by like +3% or whatever)
Gasoline cans in the level are always found in the dangerous/near the middle spots, forcing survivors to explore scary shit. There would always be on in a corner of the basement, making even that a possible objective.
While holding a gas can; your other item magically appears on your character's belt or could be held in the left hand instead. Regardless, as long as you are holding a gas can and you move it creates a light sloshing noise that can alert the killer to your position; especially if you are running.
Why this is a good change? This forces the survivors to search the map more and makes objectives just a little bit tougher. It allows another thing (gas cans) that the killer can patrol and potentially trap. It gives another 'objective' for the survivors to work towards (since it always bothered me that only generators really did anything).
Basically; it fixes the game by giving the killer another edge, since the game is currently unbalanced for the survivor's benefit. I think this would be a great improvement.
Make holding the gasoline take up the survivor's hand slot and/or let it be carried out of the mission with them.
Do I want to bring a toolbox or gas can to my next mission? It would be a good question to ask. It also makes items a more integral part of the game.
>Make ALL generators require gasoline
This one seems a bit harsh on the surface but I'm not sure. Make a chance for a gas can to spawn on the corners of the map, easier to get to, and allow each gas can to fill up to 2 generators. Or make generators require a semi-random amount of gas, so some only need to be topped off and the others require a lot more.
Secondly this is awesome because once you fill up the generator you'd throw down your gas can and run the fuck away since they are noisy, meaning the killer comes back and will see a working generator and gas can on the ground, which is a great horror movie trope.
its a skill check where the bar is right at the start of the check mfw i get it by a pixel on the end
I wasn't saying people will be busy at E3. I'm saying that any press coverage will be obliterated by news spawning from E3 including any hype for the game's launch and/or any launch issues.
>tfw someone comes to help you with the generator, fails their first check and hauls ass.
>tfw hear heartbeat coming closer
>let go of mouse button right when a skill check pops up
How do you feel this game fares against Damned?
It's supposed to be ultra rare but people have been hacking like crazy.
Also you can easily avoid it by spinning around on the ground or hiding in a corner.
>see this offering burnt on match start
There was no such offering
He did some weird trick
Like you know the trick you use to stop survivor from wigling
he did something like that, he was lvl20 killer
and still one shot
>It was probably just the offering that lets you kill survivors when down
>Or he was using the chainsaw which is also a one-hit down.
That could be the case but I clearly saw cleaver... unless the 3rd person model fo Trapper still wielding cleaver even when using chainsaw.
its fine but its not as special as you'd expect given the really unique design. it mostly comes from the crippling lack of content. you play it for an hour and you've seen basically all there is to see.
for some reason a guy in this thread has a raging hateboner about it.
Game is fun, but it's buggy as FUCK.
pic was related (more than 4 survivors being put in a match)
but also animations breaking, bad netcode, teleporting out of the map, falling through the map
and stuff like if the killer leaves, all of the survivors lose their items, etc.
can't tell if retarded or baiting so here is (you) in first case as my condolences in second case as a good bait
>mfw i thought this was a picture posted yesterday but then i realized it really is original
well this is a good argument about why "Beta" means "Demo for audiences" now.
>Comparing a game that gave the beta out to literally everyone to the game that requires people to put forth effort in order to get into the beta
I know it's bait but I'm going to bite it
You need to let one go with scars, to spread stories of your den and lure others.
Mercy is a weapon for the killer.
An assload of people still owned L4D. You have to actually find out about DBD before you can even bother trying to get into the beta. The only reason I found out about it is because these threads started appearing.
>Evolve had a marketing campaign and distributed its beta much more widely
>This led to an increased player count compared to DBD which has no marketing beyond word of mouth
If all of your shit is client sided, on release Im going to just keep spawning the charm that allows me to just execute every downed survivor for a match, play exclusively hillbilly, and name myself "European Extreme"
>rank 1 player gets caught in the first 3 minutes
>rage quits the second being placed on it
It's so the hatch doesn't open.
It's also easy bait.
If you have 2 people, and you sacrifice the last one while the other one is still able to walk, that jeopardizes your chances of sacrifices the other.
If you down one, and then go and down the other one, the first one will have a harder time reaching the hatch once you sacrifice his buddy.
Disconnects should be a suicide animation and give the killer points for it.
If they're hooked and disconnect, they should immediately be sacrificed.
It's annoying when they DC and you get nothing from it.
>set down two traps in the rape shed within the first minute of the round
>dwight steps in one literally 10 seconds later
This has been a great beta
>So many people whining that survivors are OP and Trapper is shit
>MFW I've only lost 1 match so far out of the 8 hours I've put in so far
Rank 1, here we come baby.
I've wiped the entire teams 99% of the time. I've only lost one match where everyone escaped, and 2 matches I had 1 person escape my grasp. Another match I helped a guy escape on his own since he had 4 generators to go and the hatch didn't spawn for him.
I picked him up and led him to the generators.
On the flip side I usually always make it out as survivor, seems like people dont understand how to try different strategies instead of doing the same thing over and over and then wondering why its not working.
It's hit or miss
Personally, I really enjoy being the killer because I know for a fact that I'm legitimately scaring some mother fucker on the other side.
Especially when I start playing theatrics like pretending not to see them when they're hiding, or just starring at them from a distance.

They should really add proximity chat, so that when you're close to other survivors you can hear them, but so can the killer, so if you're hiding from him you need to shut up or he can hear you.
I hate how this fucking game doesn't let you RP as killer.
Give me a fucking "toggle walk" button. I want to slowly walk around where a survivor is, pretending I don't know where he's hiding.
I just want the killer to be able to talk to the survivors, so I can run around saying "you can run but you can't hide".
And then only give the survivors basic voice commands like "over here" and stuff.
I wish there was a stealth mode where you move much slower, but you don't play music. I know there's a perk where if you stand still you're quiet.
Yeah it'd be really fun for the killer to say things.
here's my story from last night
I've never saved my own post before but I want to hold onto this one so I don't forget what happened
Dead by daylight was shilled like crazy on /v/.
It's a shit game though, I mean there's a killer who is slightly faster than the survivors, and the survivors basically set up generators that occasionally force you to press left click before escaping.
It's a really bad game. I dunno how anyone is having fun with it after a few hours ofp laytime.
They've shown all of 1 alpha video that was like 60 seconds but from what they've talked about it should be good. Last Year is the one I want the most because I REALLY like the killer mechanics but I have a feeling its just gonna be vaporware
There's going to be a thousand Twitch streamers playing this because "omg horror", it's going to be fun tearing them apart in front of all of their fans.
>I just want the killer to be able to talk to the survivors, so I can run around saying "you can run but you can't hide".
Even though I only play as survivor, I think this would be pretty great.
>the survivors basically set up generators that occasionally force you to press left click before escaping.
Confirmed for never playing/knowing nothing.
>Not modulating your voice into the moonbase alpha voice
Nice shilling you fucking retard. You literally run around as a survivor looking for generators and then pass a "skill check" which requires you press left click at a specific time, otherwise it makes tons of noise and is visible to the killer for a few seconds. Then after you've gotten enough generators setup you can escape through the door after opening that.
Or you can just be the last survivor and jump into a hatch.
Game has no depth.
>survivors die one by one by trying to save people in the basement
Reminder to not go into the basement lads
>tfw you herd a survivor or 2 into bear traps and hooks.
>Blast the OST to Splatterhouse as the Killer through voice chat
Get spooked niggas
Evolve sucked because they charged you $60 and then had the balls to charge you even more after for a game with no content.
The concept of the game itself is fun, but if you're gonna rape my wallet, it better have a lot to offer up front.
Dead by Daylight is easier to swallow for me. The game is cheap enough that I'm willing to forgive it's faults.
>Someone runs into the basement to free their friend
>Stand in the staircase
>They both run up, stop, then turn around
>One of them actually tries to hide in a closet
Why is everyone trash?
>6 games as killer in a row
>kill all 4 in all games but 1
>each time within 5 minutes
>playing mr. chainsaw
>hear a survivor hiding in a closet
>walk up to it and casually rev the chainsaw until they get out
>chainsaw him up while he's still doing the "get out of closet" animation
If they made it so there were specific toolboxes for either repairing generators or destroying the killer's shit, the game would be far more balanced than it is now. You also should only get about 5 charges, not 410 billion and taking down a hook requires 2 charges.
Fucking faggot killers.
>Kicking his ass
>Constantly saving friends by working together
>YOU HAVE ALL BEEN SACRIFICED
We even saved people from the rape basement, several times.
>faggots go around breaking all my hooks so by the time I finally grab someone I can't even get them into the rape dungeon before they wiggle free
>they manage to get the exit open in the meantime
LOOKS LIKE YOU JUST WASTED YOUR ITEMS, FAGGOTS.
You actually can. Look at the bottom right of any thread
less than three posts per person
>"SHILL SHILL SHILL SHILL"
That's what discussion looks like, you fucking retard. Yeah, the gameplay is a bit shallow, but it's enjoyable and some people like it. I'm sorry that this somehow bothers you
no I'm not
If you don't like it, literally why are you here instead of doing something that you do enjoy. There's almost never more than one thread at a time, and even then the second thread never lasts long. These threads last for days so they don't even need reposted often, and it's a game for which the beta has only been widely accessible for a little while. Several other games have gotten significantly more attention because they're also new, so why don't you go shit on one of them? Oh, wait, someone at the dev team did something mean to you, didn't they? No, that's not it. I got it. You're a rival dev mad that someone else's game is getting attention. Yeah, I recognize a shill when I see one. So what shitty game is your bump ass studio working on, Hoss? Don't be bashful. You can tell me. We're all friends here.
>survivor thinks you have only one jukeshack window trapped
>they're both trapped and they step in one after teabagging
>dance around them as they're crawling on the ground
survivors aren't the only ones that get to have some fun
>first minute of the game a speed hacking survivor runs up to me
>proceeds to run circles around me
>runs away and gets caught in a trap i placed earlier
>no one came to save him
It's why I always put traps on alternating sides. One on the inside, one on the outside. Makes survivors cocky when they disable the first one and immediately run into the second one.
Don't do that
If you feel that this discussion isn't going fast enough, remember that there is always a thread at /vg/ that you can check http://boards.4chan.org/vg/thread/145019120/
I'm not trying to be a fag. I'm just tired of the mods getting pisses at these threads. Every time we keep it small and (mostly) civil like this, they leave it alone.
not too late, man. The official Steam forums always have someone giving away a key, and you can easily get one within a half hour from the beta site (just leave the browser window open until it asks for date of birth and/or Steam profile link)
Really? Nearly every game I play, everyone but me tries to be a hero.
Unless the killer is clearly not camping the hook or is busy trying to hook a second survivor, I don't bother.
Help me out!
After playing this game, I kind of want to get into classic horror movies
>find the hatch
>3 traps placed over it
>can't select the option to escape through hatch because all that I can see is "M1 TO DISARM TRAP!!!!"
For fucks sake.
it's really fucking fun and pretty fucking spooky, even in the beta with 1 killer and limited maps. already bought a few copies of it.
problems it has? pretty buggy, though i've only noticed it in the main menu for just cosmetic stuff (people standing around in the menu scene occasionally t-pose or duplicate).
doesn't have many players in the open beta in my region, but hopefully some mental jobs like pewdie will open the floodgates to it (i don't care about the people he brings in, the game has no chat outside of the waiting lobby).
as far as i know it's all only one gamemode, and one set of objectives for that gamemode. maybe the devs will add more content, maybe they won't. no way of knowing til they do (or don't).
$15 isn't much, let's be honest. that's like, 2 pizzas. this'll keep you entertained longer, i've already had a few days well spent on the beta.
In The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (another Starbreeze game) There was a mode called Pitch Black where everyone is thrown into a dark hole and one players gets to play as Riddick who gets to kill everyone else, the other players play as soldiers that have to kill Riddick. Riddick gets his ulaks and his Eyeshine but the soldiers get guns and flashlights. If you killed Riddick you got to play as him until you got killed.
As Riddick you could press a button and he'll say shit like "Behind you." and "boo!". It was fun to mess with people like that.
Not being able to magically bypass a game mechanic that keeps you from instantly winning is "absolute stupid bullshit?" Just disarm the traps or fix more gens, bro. Play. the. game.
>start-up 3 of 5 generators, passing every skill check with "great"
>help a fellow survivor back up onto his feet and then heal him
>get out and escape
>come last on the team
Where the fuck are they getting these points?
holy shit i managed to swap out my bear trap for a chainsaw with cheat engine, about to test the invisibility one now
Ha, if only idiot teammates were that bad.
I had an idiot teammate who did nothing but hide in the corners of the map for 15 minutes. We just needed ONE generator and we'd be home free, but I couldn't do shit on my own with the killer constantly cycling between generators.
Fuck you lorzeno, you spineless faggot.
I had no idea where he was until I got caught. Honestly, I was kinda hoping he was being a dick and was waiting for me to die to go down the hatch, but he was just bad at videogames.
I'm pretty sure that's the general consensus
>Release game for full price
>Hide a bunch of content behind another paywall
>Offer a Season Pass
>Season pass doesn't cover all the DLC
I seriously enjoyed the game and bought the beta.
I have no doubt that the game will tank and the population will dwindle shortly after launch, but I'm going to enjoy the fuck out of it before it does.
I'm not having another Killzone 2 situation happen.
>mfw I was desperate for the beta and got it today, but didn't even bother to download it
Is it really fun? My internet is shite and don't want to download it if the game sucks nigger dick.
The game has a few animation bugs you'll encounter as the killer, but it's pretty fun. I suggest watching a stream or two to figure out some mechanics, because if you try to play the game blind as a survivor you'll instantly die after getting hooked.
Also, the beta's ending soon so if you want to play you should start downloading immediately.
