Is it bannable to farm even though some survivors dont want to

I just played a game of survivor with my friend and we got into a game with a nurse that was not very good and i was looping her on a pallet and she gave up and started farming even though me and my friend wanted to actually play and she wouldnt play so we went with it even though it was boring but we dont want to de pip so we farmed and at the end she downed us all and tryed to kill us but i got out is this in someway bannable?

    Nope. It's frowned upon by the developers but farming isn't bannable afaik. Neither is pretending to farm and then turning on everyone. Jerk move but also hilarious at times.

    No? Just finish the gens and leave the game if the killer's farming and you don't want to. Ignore the killer completely and maybe they'll start to play normally.

    Unless they change the rules in the future, standard farming isn't bannable, fake farming isn't bannable and farming for trophies/challenges isn't bannable. It's just heavily frowned upon.

    Targeting a specific player and farming with everyone else could get you a ban though depending on the circumstances.

    But you did. If you didn't want to farm, then finish the gens, and walk out. I don't know what you're complaining about. Your story doesn't add up. She was playing legit and losing. So she started farming. You didn't want to farm - so started farming. Then she turned on you, and now you think she should be banned for farming in the first place? What about you. You also decided to farm. It's childish to just "She decided to farm first!" expecting any lesser of a sentence. You both did the dirty, you both are in the clear - now move on with your life.

    If you run into a farming killer again, just finish the gens and escape - ending the game.

    I wouldn't say it like that but, that's basically what it boils down to.

    If the Killer farmed and turned on you... than it wouldn't make sense to report them if you hypothetically would be banned for farming... since you would get banned as well since you got involved.

    Despite not wanting to do it, you got involved. But what they did isn't bannable, and turning on you last second isn't either... since farming in-general isn't really looked well on anyways. It isn't bannable from what I've seen on the game rules and records of it... but it's frowned upon by BHVR.

    In-general @Popsos360 I'd just move on from this.

    @Pythonheir how is it my story "doesnt add up" plus "just do the gens" i went in to play the fkn game not farm i didnt want to farm because its boring.

    Edit. I dont think she should get banned the reason i posted it was because i didnt know

    It isn't bannable, but what happened at the end really f***ing should be. Devs would never do anything about it, though.

    Well farming in-general is frowned upon by BHVR, but the act itself isn't listed as a bannable offence.

    Regardless, it's an unspoken rule, it's up to the Killer to ultimately stick with that rule or not.
