So is this a thing now? (avoiding the new ban system)

    ah ok. Well all that is pure theory but mby they dont know how to fix egc in terms of that matter.

    Im also still slugging for 4K ;)

    But I wish they would come up with a nice idea to fix that

  • KingMyersKingMyers Member Posts: 18

    Why would you say something stupid like that, the survivors can say they are not here for your experience aswell and you don't see why that's the problem, they see dc'ing as a win for the team any way needed and killers see slugging as any way needed that's why none of its ever gonna change

    I didn't say they weren't allowed to play how I disapproved of, did I? Please feel free to quote where I did. In a twist of fate, though, as luck has it, I play Wraith and tunnel people hard until they quit. Or die.

    I'm fine with either and find ragequitting hilarious. It means I did it right :>

    -[edit 15 minutes later]-

    Also, to me it absolutely is not a problem for survivors to not cater to me as the killer. They're there for each other, and I'm there to f--- up their day. Straight up. Why would I be nice to them? lol

    Ehh, I'll dc for hatch if the killer has been a major dick in the match such as face camping first hook or hardcore tunnels but never from slugging. 100% agree it's a crappy thing to do and I'm part of the problem but at the same time I just don't care enough to stop. I also don't pull the plug, I just leave since it's quicker and I would be happy to take the future punishment it brings me.

    Normally when I dc it's more for memes then anything though and I think I've dced once ever for slugging and that was yesterday because two others dced and I thought it'd be funny to continue the chain.

    Normally if the killer slugs, I'll just wait in a corner of the basement and point till death. I don't try for the door or anything else, I just waste as much time as possible to make the match boring for them. Bonus if it's a swf and at least two can hide.

    Is it wrong? Yes. Do I do it anyway? Also yes. Probably my favorite thing that happened was a huntress with iri head who slugged, proxy camped the slug till almost death then camped the guy on hook. One person dced before that and me and some random both decided to hide and it took her about 30 minutes or so to find me. I dced to prevent a possible bbq stack and the other guy got hatch. It was beautiful.

    I see some "good for them [BAD WORD] you" no, slugging is completely acceptable, if you do it then leave all to die even when in sight then no, but to get the advantage yes, anyone against it needs to git gud

  • LmronbyLmronby Member Posts: 147

    Dude; one is a PlayStyle, the other is a Systematic Offense

  • KenshinKenshin Member Posts: 912

    there is still no DC punishment. it comes tomorrow (if they can fix the game before).

  • BigBubsBigBubs Member Posts: 712

    I slug sometimes and I have some dc too. Thing is ,unlike OP , I don't feel entitled to have survivors stay and crawl for the rest of the game just so that I could get my e pin bigger with that 4k. I can't understand what's so painful in the last guy getting hatch lol. This is not CSGo or something.

  • crabbycanuckttvcrabbycanuckttv Member Posts: 35

    Or earn the 4k thorough skill? Slugging is not skill by any means it is ego. Stop taking tips from salty pro streamers and just play for the fun.

  • bumbewilderedbumbewildered Member Posts: 15

    To be fair disconnecting, either by hitting escape or by pulling your WiFi cord, is a game mechanic. If the devs didn't want us to do it they wouldn't give us the option. And yes these argument look strikingly similar to the slug arguments. Point is, neither is fun. The better way to play killer to maximize your pipping is to "play with your food". You should know that survivors have two objectives throughout the game, repair and save. If you really want the 4k pip let them save each other so you max your books. With 2 left 1 is on the hook and 1 is on the save. If you find the death hook player then give him a whack and go find the one that isn't on death hook.

  • KingMyersKingMyers Member Posts: 18

    No reason to be biased about what is fair or not and to be fair the perks that "can" counter slugging really only work once, yeah slugging isn't against the rules but it absolutely should be and here's why, it's taking the game hostage it prevents the person being slugged from playing and it also encourages the other survivor to not be productive or help the person on the ground incase the killer is staying within range of the slug or so they can get hatch, (mind you I'm talking strictly about the last 2 survivors there's nothing wrong with early game slugging as the other survivors can distract/help) and none of this really falls on players persay rather than the overall game itsself alot of changes could happen to fix alot of these issues

  • bumbewilderedbumbewildered Member Posts: 15

    Alright so if slugging is a strategy and dc-ing isn't because it isn't within the game then why was something like rock climbing something that needed to be fixed? There's a lot of things in the game that were considered "exploits" that were fixed, slugging could be next.

  • XelarangerXelaranger Member Posts: 10

    This should be a simple fix since slugging literally makes it so survs cant play the game anymore, either take away hatch and let survs kill them self without dcing or punish slugging if it takes too long so even on a 4k no double pip.

    Seriously if your slugging and your good it's not so bad its just the ones that are not take literally forvever should be punished for killing everyones time.. See what I did there? But seriously it is a boring strategy that inflates game time for no purpose other than a few tryhards getting a 4k and maybe a super niche build here or there. But you need to reward the good ones and punish the bads ones because as is there is no downsides for the killer maybe it's diff at red ranks.

  • TheHourManTheHourMan Member Posts: 989

    This makes me ferl proud that I'm not an [BAD WORD] when I play surv.

  • supersonic853supersonic853 Member Posts: 1,082

    Other times i let the last survivor go after hooking the 3rd survivor it just depends on how the survivors play.

  • YamaokaYamaoka Member Posts: 1,695

    Again: There are perks for and against slugging. If you can't deal with endgame slugging play a different game. People should be grateful that I'm an anti-camp and anti-tunnel Bubba main who plays without NOED and without basement builds. That's OVERLY fair especially for a Bubba.

    Instead they're still crying because of endgame slugging. Get used to it, run Unbreakable and/or Tenacity or quit the game. I will always slug for the 4k. No 0% skill-escapes for bad survivors. Either outplay me or get sacrificed. Simple as that.

  • Bravo0413Bravo0413 Member Posts: 3,328

    Rock climbing was fixed because because it was an exploit... there were certain rocks that the killer couldn't climb or hit the survivor (this is something that should never be in the game) it was also a means to make use of BL when it was in an area that it shouldn't have been able too be used...

    Now we go to slugging, slugging has always been intended to be in the game, it's a means of slowing down the game without other perks and even then slugging is only useful against solo players like everything....

  • CarryGodToWinsCarryGodToWins Member Posts: 2

    In my opinion as a killer main myself ( Huntress) hard tunneling is a HUGE dick move, it's not bannable and the dev's have gone over it saying it isn't. Although it's not fun for the survivors and you get punished for tunneling through DS. I like to play fair which in my opinion is: Not camping or Tunneling (could differ to others). Now if the survivor is purposely being annoying like flashlight spamming or fast vaulting etc. then go ahead they asked for it. But it's your style of playing the game and could be considered a bitch move or toxic.

  • DepressedClownMainDepressedClownMain Member Posts: 888

    Not really, and they probably dc because they are tired of existing when a survivor wont pick them up because they want hatch. When slugging someone, go to where you know the hatch is to avoid it

  • DepressedClownMainDepressedClownMain Member Posts: 888

    I cant deny, but you shouldn't complain about 4 toolboxes with bnp and swivels

    Yep, more words. Specifically, the latest words are along the lines of "currently working on testing a fix for the basement bug, which will be implemented as part of a hotfix as soon as possible".

    Soon, they'll be saying words like "the bugs have been fixed".

  • NuclearBurritoNuclearBurrito Member Posts: 5,020

    I'd complain to the devs about that. Not to the Survivors.

    Just like my view is that Survivors SHOULD gen rush and that gen rushing should be nerfed. These are not contradictions, since something being OP is a valid reason to use it as much as possible.

  • MegaWaffleMegaWaffle Member Posts: 3,243

    Slugging for a 4k isn't breaking game mechanics.

    Disconnecting to spawn a hatch is.

    Now if I'm incorrect and BHVR is actually going to claim that they designed the game with "DC tech" in mind I will literally stop playing right now, buy a plane ticket to Ottawa and smash my head on the glass outside their offices until the sense being knocked out of me falls into their heads.

  • SukiSuki Member Posts: 2

    Although I think the idea -or the reality to some people- of doing anything by using game mechanics (including DC for hatch) to be appropriate in anyway is totally wrong, i think slugging for 4K at the and of the game should be no harm to the game rules.

    Imagine if a killer is starting the game and do nothing until the end everytime to degrade their killer level. I think this totally ruin someone elses gaming experience and shall be a reason for a reasonable penalty. But anyway i see slugging in any point of the game is more a strategy than being dumb or noob. That is why there is also a perk like Unbreakable and a mechanic like dying by bleeding out which is not considered as a kill.

    Its very likely its an unlucky crash. Usually the DC's w/o sounds are crashes, as pulling the plug does make the DC sound iirc.
