Okay devs, facecamping is definitely a “legit strategy”

    And mmmm don't forget about salty SWF hate messages guys. That crap never gets old. I even get em just for having a clutch perk, good ol NO ED. Lol literally some ppl unhook someone in front of me W/O borrowed and thats a crime apparently. Lol 😂 Yeah it seems like survivors just want killers to give em a free pass .

  • leslie4445leslie4445 Member Posts: 44

    True bruh but its situational . Especially if you dont have good perks youll end up losing most of em.

    Body blocking to take the game hostage or grief (as in survivors blocking eachother in corners) is bannable.

    Body blocking to take hits for another survivor or blocking someone in a corner to chainsaw them is not bannable.

    Especially with killer without terror radius. I mean BT counters all kind of camping? Oh right forgot...

  • TuckzysGayMengTuckzysGayMeng Member Posts: 72

    Borrowed time. 100% fair.

    ruin gone in first 5 seconds. Impossible.

    “god” loops are counterable and are indeed not on 70% of the maps.

    being DS’d is fairer now. It’s a lot more fair to the killers than it is for survivors.

    3 gens in 80 seconds is your own fault for focusing on survivors more than the gens.

    these types of killer mains is what really get me. You know it’s not the killers job to kill right!? It’s to prevent. Stop wasting your own time hunting down survivors you clearly can’t catch. And stop them from doing the literal ONE objective they have to do. It’s not that complex.

    want ruin to last longer. Run thrill of the hunt. Look after your totems better. But frankly. It just keeps going back that you just need to patrol gens better.

    literally no point you made was valid and most of it was false.

    so think of that before I’m called a sweaty survivor main like usually happens on here and Reddit. Because I’m really not one.

    Do they still punish for this during the EGC or not updated that? I mean, what else can the killer really do... just let a BT save? Gotta change that aspect or fix BT during endgame.

  • leslie4445leslie4445 Member Posts: 44

    Guys! I really would like casual match optionas lol or AT LEAST a customizable match option where we can choose what ranks to go up against!!! 😀😁🤩😍 I dont like going up against sweats..they make me try hard 😅

    The ONLY reason i do is cuz the goddamn rank system . Im lvl 12 and i don't want to go back to lower rank cuz the load time to get into a SINGLE match is horse crap . 😫

  • FibijeanFibijean Member Posts: 8,343

    Yes, the killer still receives an emblem penalty for camping the hook during endgame. They're basically trading chaser points for devout points.

    People deadass still complaining about bodyblocking and facecamping in 2019 smh

  • Lol all this drivel has counterplay.

    -Its not fun to be looped around the entire map and have 3 gens pop back to back

    Don't be chasing a survivor that long. Run perks that slow gen progress

    -Its not fun getting hit by pallets over and over

    Don't run through pallets. Run enduring, spirit fury

    -Its not fun to get body blocked by three people while you're trying to hook someone

    Hit them! Run mad grit, agitation, iron grasp

    -Its not fun to be blinded by two or three people after you finish a long chase

    Pick up a survivor while facing a wall/tree. Run lightborn

    -Its not fun for a killer to have to deal with borrowed time

    Don't camp!

    -Its not fun for killers to get repeatedly flashlight clicked or t-bagged over and over

    This is just crybaby nonesense

    -Its not fun when a killer finally catches a tryhard and they DC because they can't handle getting hooked or killed

    I feel this, I hate that too. At least it's becoming punishable

    -its not fun for a killer to be doing a good job through out the whole match and the survivors escape with a key

    If you're doing a good job, they won't even see a hatch.

    -its not fun when survivors hide through out the whole match and barely try to do the gens because they're too scared to do the gens and don't want to get caught

    Get out the potato ranks (by not camping)

    -Its not fun when survivors dc because they don't like the map

    As previously stated

    -its not fun when survivors dc because they don't like the killer

    As above

    -Its not fun when survivors suicide on hook because they're angry babies

    Survivors tend to when camped

    -Its not fun when a swf on comms coordinate to repeatedly loop and locker stun the killer

    Yeah, swf is brutal. Git gud

    -Its not fun when a killer is trying to hook someone only to find someone broke the hook

    Honestly, how often does that really happen?

    -its not fun for Trapper to find out his trap was broken

    They regenerate

    -Its not fun to play Plague because her power depends on the Survivors actions

    I like playing plague, survivors are either 1 hit down and I get to down them at distance

    -Its not fun to face a group of survivors that have 4 toolboxes and one or two brand new parts and power through all the gens in 5 minutes.

    Franklin's demise, corrupt intervention, ruin, Thana, dying light, pgtw, surveillance, overcharge.... it's ALWAYS the killers fault if gens get done in under 5 mins

    So, what's the counter for being camped/face campes and tunnelled?

  • StrickxNyneStrickxNyne Member Posts: 230

    Just allow DS to reactivate every time the miler stays within 15 meters of the hook over 10 seconds, easy peasy. Those saying they don't tunnel and camp have no worries of a DS that let's you hit the killer every time they down you after a hook of they stayed on the hook.

  • Kalec84Kalec84 Member Posts: 487

    You are assuming thet killer dont want to depip and go against lower ranks survivors...

    There Is a challenge to kill obession 4 or 5 times other than that i don't know. But yes Is lame if there was no reason. But Is legit he wanted that kill and mover on.

  • TalmeerTalmeer Member Posts: 1,520

    Have today facecamp one myself, the third time in my complete "dbd-career".

    That guy needed to run purple and second chances perks, while I was on the the with a nearly fresh and new Legion on rank 17. Also he had acted like he was a god and full of selfesteem...

    Guys like him, I will always facecamp -when I am in the mood for it- no matter how many blood points/ep or whatever I would lose for it.

    If someone plays like a jerk, he has to be punished. That is just the natural order.

    Survivor who act not like jerks -that is the overwhelming majortiy to be clear- I sometimes let go or just play normal with. Without facecamping and all that crap.

  • TalmeerTalmeer Member Posts: 1,520

    *was on a new prestige legion with a nearly fresh...

    Damn guys... Why I can't edit my postings here anymore ? :(

  • NoShinyPonyNoShinyPony Member Posts: 4,570

    One thing I immediately notice: You complain about the camping killer. You don't complain about your teammates who farmed you twice in a minute.

  • Mak0Mak0 Member Posts: 250

    No they have said so many times camping is a strategy a bad one but a strategy and wont ever be punished stop complaining and move on to the next game. P.S with your logic they should also make it so if you body block or camp a hook for a save you get 0 bloodpoints. And immediately sacraficed.

    I can tell you don't play killer lol or at the very least are terrible at killer lol know what gives it away "it's always the killers fault if gens get done in 5 minutes"

    That statement right there along with the fact that you don't k ow what counter play actually is pretty much makes this whole post invalid. Almost everything you said has already been addressed and explained why your wrong or you literally don't even make a point lol

    Counter to tunnel called body blocking, and team coordination. There is no counter play to face camping its literally just hope you have the perks to deal with it. And you can coordinate well enough to get the save then escape .

  • StrodeWinsStrodeWins Member Posts: 274

    Just for clarification:

    im not in a potato rank. i’m rank 1 (which is weird to have a killer camping everyone on hook)

    -it’s not that i’m “bad” enough to not keep a chase. chases don’t last forever, and we can all agree on that.

    -camping isn’t comparable at 5 gens to body blocking at all. it’s way too early in the game to camp, and there’s no reason to do so if i didn’t teabag or be mean to the killer.. right?

    -camping at 5 gens is also not comparable to ruin getting blown up in 5 seconds, as this doesn’t not “ruin” the game for a good killer (no pun intended).

  • BingbongbongBingbongbong Member Posts: 202

    The problem with a lot of the challenges is that they don't take into account how games usually play out. Usually you don't have much spare time to focus on a challenge especially as killer so you end up being forced to throw the game.

  • Bless you for trying 🙏

    Ok, so when in a random match, team work happens yeah? All the time? Nice drivel 👍 of course there's no counterplay to face camping, it's why bad killers use it and why survivors find it frustrating.

    As a killer that plays with all killers, at rank 1 i sometimes I even run no perks and add ons just for the fun of it. I have NEVER had a group of survivors smash out gens in under 5 minutes. So yeah, that only happens to bad killers

    I am using counterplay to mean that there's something realistic that can be done about it. In this game, that comes down to skill and/or perks.

    So well done, for being *not allowed to say because of rules*

  • StrodeWinsStrodeWins Member Posts: 274

    but one thing: body blocking doesn’t punish a particular survivor. you can just punish the body blocker and hook them instead of tunneling the one you originally hooked. this method works perfectly.

    camping, on the other hand, ruins the game for a particular survivor, especially if it is so early in the game that 5 gens are still to be completed. by being facecamped, it insures you can’t play that round, a guaranteed depip, very low bloodpoints, and a general overall boring after status.

    camping is justifiable in some cases, such as in endgame, or when a survivor disrespects a killer.

  • Warlock_2020Warlock_2020 Member Posts: 1,868

    It's these azzhat posts that I find sad. Not the survivors fault for being camped and unless they are part of an organized SWF, they are not getting free. Unless the killer is pure crap or the survivor is the best of the best, once the killer is on you, it is a matter of time. Myself, I won't chase for long in the early stages, I'll peel off when near a gen being worked on. That said, if I'm on you and determined to put you down, it is only a matter of time.

    Blaming the survivor for getting camped is absolute ignorance. Face camping when there are 5 gens is pure toxic. That killer is no better than the 4 man hit squads who derank just to bully killers. Both are what is wrong with this game.

    I face camped one time and it was during EGC vs 4 man SWF. There were three survivors left. Got one hooked and had to stave off the other two. End result was I slugged one, downed the rescuer, the hooked one got away and other 2 died due to EGC. That is where a hard camp is strategic. Not vs 4 solos with 3 or more gens left. If you need to camp vs them, you should get better at killer.

  • Negan4891Negan4891 Member Posts: 53

    I play both. But im a killer main tho. But the killer does get punish enough. They get punish. There bp takes a big hit.They discourage camping or face camping. But some of these killers dont care. Like me. Cuz we will do ne thing to get our kills. I tunnel at when the match first starts. Why? To make it harder for the survivors. I dont care if you got ds neither. But this game is ment to be unfair. But punishing the killer more by his bp to 0 for the whole match is delusional. Then if the killer face camps or camps. Lets make it where the killer and survivors bp becomes 0 for the whole match. But im not compling. This is how the devs made ther game tho. But to me both sides are unfair.

    Lol ASYMETRICAL if you can't get your team to coordinate that's survivors fault not the killers. Clearly someone never played evolve and you definitely don't understand what the POINT of an asymetrical game is.

    Survivors should "just do gens" if someone is getting camped or learn how to lose the killer and actually not get caught. See I can make up stupid points too lol.

    Yeah basically your whole 3rd paragraph is a lie in some form or another you either DONT play killer or you are lying about how good you are with killer lol. Put up a stream of you playing as killer I'd be more than happy to watch a pro prove me wrong 😂

    Like I said you don't know what counter play is.

    Right back at ya 😘
