I can see why nobody wants to be killer.

If you were told that you were going into a game where the cards were stacked against you and the opposing team was coordinated and toxic you'd be a survivor main after that. I bet 10-1 ranked killers have saintly patience. All it takes is someone to just grief you or be toxic and you'll get tilted and then play poorly which will snowball into a bad time. Currently I can only log 5 matches in before my patience runs dry and I know I'll play poorly and get even more frustrated. With all the tech survivors can do to evade being hit or get injured or downed it's a wonder anyone plays killer at high level.

    It's all about having a plan beforehand... as well as a backup. If you're going into a game at higher ranks without one, then you'll have a bad time.

    Survivors usually have a plan, killers should have one of their own. Granted, a lot of them may not work... but you have to try.

    The best way to win as a Killer is to have no plan. Just find Survivors and down them. It’s worked for me so far. I net 24k BP on average per game with no strategic plan. It’s really all about your hunting instincts and toxic perks.

    That never really works at higher ranks. Most of them are more than willing to take advantage of you with their combined strategies, and it rarely turns out well for the killer.

    But then, maybe running like a headless chicken after survivors works for you (with Spirit Fury/Enduring). Keep playing how you want to. But for most killers, you need an element of strategy to win.

    Meanwhile you have survivors whining to have literally every Killer nerfed into the ground. The Paradox should destroy the universe.

    Killer can be frustrating and difficult, for sure. It seems like a lot of people still enjoy playing it, though - at least in my region, killer queues generally take 5-10 minutes, while survivor queues at the same time of day are practically instantaneous.

    I wish they would make the killers a lil more stronger. I mean, you have supernatural killers that are " suppose " to have the power role, but it seems reversed. Seems survivors have all the power(perk wise) , and the killer is always playing catch-up and either looses perks during game, or has to wait half the match to even utilize them. Coming from BOTH sides, killers need to be more terrifying and survivors SHOULD be afraid of them.

    I can't plan around their perks if I can't see them, I can't do much if they all run item except equip a niche perk (that wouldn't help me win anyway) and the map is random but some can destroy your chances at killing like that damn farm.

    their quick for killers cause most people want to survive since it's easy, for survivors it's slower since few want to be killer. I highly doubt those numbers since if it takes that long they wouldn't want to be toxic and risk their queue time being longer. Also you're a survivor so it makes sense why you'd say all that. Killer is horrible under the right circumstances since you can only capitalize on mistakes and if they make few if any mistakes you've lost and they have the ability to be toxic in ways a killer can't match. So no, no one wants to be killer.

    I feel like they should be allowed to kill a survivor, if they're toxic it'll make em think twice and make the doors not open when the last survivor is alive and it'll make being killer funner.

    Well, you should try making a plan they have to work around, not the other way around. I understand if people don't play the way I do though, since I play more strategically.

  • FibijeanFibijean Member, Trusted Posts: 2,804

    So you're just calling me a liar because the queues in your region are different, and because I prefer to play survivor so obviously I'm just making things up?

    I'm... honestly speechless.
