What was your biggest comeback you ever made?

So i queue'd up a game with Legion but something happened irl when the game was loading

By the time i got back i saw i was already in game. 3 gens were done and a survivor was farming chasepoints of me

So i waited until she got close again and out of nowhere entered frenzy and started chasing. Probably gave them a good scare : P

Managed to get them all with not a single gen being completed from when i started playing

Do you people have stories about a game you thought was lost but you managed to completly turn around?

    Feels kinda scummy, but I use to run NOED and Class photo on old Freddy. Had times with it when all 4 survivors would still be alive, only to end up having 4 slugs before they could open the gate.

    Infinite Tier 3 Myers with Bamboozle, Brutal Strength, Play with Your Food and Nemesis on the Cowshed map.

    That's all I need to say.

    Quite common, I adore the End Game, as Trapper, pre-trapped exit doors and basement, focused on trapping more than hooking, it was a tough map for Trapper, I only have 1k, last gen pops, no NOED, BOOM! as soon as the 1st survivor falls into a trap Ragnarok begins for them ending in a 4k most times

    I had a match yesterday, I messed up pretty hard early game and only got two hooks.... Until endgame when I downed everyone as they tried to unhook people, they 99’d the gates and I closed the hatch so I killed everyone.

    I lost a pip but god was it satisfying.

    I got my adept Freddy in a simular fashion. Not with Noed obviously but all 4 survivors where alive when the last gen got done

    managed to catch someone and one bloodwarden minute later all of them were down and i managed to pick the last survivor up several feet before he made it through the exit gate

    Felt so satisfying

    Really bad start with demogorgon.

    All gens get finished and I have 1 guy on basement. I go away because of reasons.

    Teleport back at the right time. And hit the rescuer.

    All the survivors realize I just got my 3rd stack of devour hope.

    I end with 3 sacrifices

    Was playing the game with a friend while we were both fairly new (probably around rank 16). We loaded into a game where the other 2 survivors didn't connect. It was Haddonfield against an obviously new Huntress. She was really bad but it was still extremely stressful. We managed to both get out. Still the most intense match I've ever played.

    Actually pretty recently. 4 survivors still alive and exit gates opened. I was playing as Wraith. One survivor escaped, I managed to hook one of the three remaining survivors (Claudette) on a hook.

    The Jake pointed at me to get me to follow him away from the hook. I had a hunch he was just trying to distract me from the hook so that the other Claudette can unhook the hooked Claudette. I rang my bell towards him as if I was going to chase after him after I uncloaked, then used the burst of speed after uncloaking to go back to the hook where sure enough, the other Claudette was trying to unhook the hooked Claudette. I hit her, she ran away. The Jake pointed at me again and I managed to hit him before he vaulted a window, then hit him again to down him.

    By then, the other Claudette managed to unhook the hooked Claudette, I hit the rescuer Claudette to down her. I noticed the Claudette that just got unhooked was hesitant to run to either the exit gate or heal one of her teammates. I managed to down her before she could decide what to do.

    With three bodies down, I hooked one of the Claudettes, took notice that the other one was crawling towards a corner trying to get as much distance from the nearby hook as possible. I grabbed the Jake and took him to a bit of a farther hook so that I can save the closest hook for the Claudette crawling to the corner, hooked him, then went back to hook the Claudette in the corner.

    All this while the exit gates were opened and at any point any of the three remaining survivors could’ve escaped. Definitely one of my favorite moments in DBD and it wasn’t even a 4K :D

    Trapper on the new map that came out with Oni.

    I basically just got owned, no hooked by the time 5 gens popped. Opened on door and went to the other side and trapped the second door. Caught someone, assuming they tried disarming trap but because the game has crap for priority, they walked into the trap.

    Before getting that person, I placed two other traps, went and grabbed this person and hooked them. 1 of the people left at this point. As I was hooking 1 person, a second walked into a trap, but was freed by the third before I could get them as I went to reset the door trap.

    I get there just as they are freeing and hit the 3rd survivor, so all our injured now. They rush to pull the person off hook. I hit the rescuer. The saved person walks into one of the previous traps and the 3rd person gets caught in the door trap.

    Basically I went from hooking no one all game to a 3k.

    This was a few years ago (2018 is a few years, right?), so I may be getting some things wrong.

    I was playing Trapper on one of the farm maps (I want to say Thompson House, but I'm can't remember). I had a really rough game, and it wasn't until the last generator popped that I downed Bill. I brought him to a hook on a hill, with the exit gate about twenty feet away. However, before I hooked him, Tapp got trapped right on a pallet (probably going for a stun since I was right there), so I hit him and carry Bill off. Meg saves him and he crawls off as I chase her. Then I see Claudette run for the hook (gate was open at this point, no EGC), so I go after her, and Meg takes over. This repeats until I downed one of them (can't remember which one). Bill was either dead or stage two by this point, and the only other Survivor got trapped at another pallet (I think I trapped most of the pallets). I hook them both, find Tapp, and hook him.

    Surprisingly friendly endgame chat, realizing they were a bit too altruistic.

    I'd say that was one of my best games I've ever had.

    Yesterday I played with Demogorgon and all survivors were alive when finishing the last gen, I downed one and hooked him. All survivors went in to save and there was a mayhem with me in the end slugging all of them and hooking them one by one into a 4k.

  • MrsGhostfaceMrsGhostface Member Posts: 260

    Four survivors alive, one gen left and killing them all. I get those once in a while and they’re satisfying

    so i played Legion (i currently play him a lot, idk why) and faced this super toxic SWF. like, multiple flashlights, an OoO guy with a clicky click and all in all just extremely annoying.

    they were also pretty solid on gens and did 3 of them by the time i got one of the toxics down (not the 1st hook, but finally the guy that was staring at me with OoO all the time). he crawled into shack pallet, i picked him up and heard footsteps rushing towards me.

    i was able to dodge the pallet stun however and downed the person that threw the pallet.

    uppon hooking the first guy, another one ran into the shack and started healing their friend. i broke the pallet and they went down super easily. i now had 2 slugged inside the shack and one hooked at the corner hook in the shack.

    long story short: i had 2 hooked and one slugged with no intention to leave this area, as it was super obvious the 4th was just waiting around to go for the save. i thought i heard crows at one point, so i went away from my proxy camp and checked, whoch allowed him tp slip past to get the OoO user from the hook - who immediately ran at the other guys hook. i downed him right in front of it and had no intention to pick him up within the next minute, though the 4th also got the slugged up, so i had something to do. i injured the 4th during this process and reslugged the 3rd.

    the hooked guy and the OoO user both ragequit (endchart revealed both had DS btw), so i hooked the 3rd guy, found and closed hatch (which i discovered earlier when i got looped by the OoO guy). found feng at an gate and ended with a 4k.

    the moral of the story?

    you are not the only ones that can be toxic, dear survivors. piss me off and i wont let you go once i got you.

    When I was afk while I was looking for a lobby as Plague, I came back after 4 gens were done, I managed to infect everyone really fast because just protecting last 3 gens. Then I managed to down someone after last gen popped and adrenaline and then I hooked him into the basement. I could slugg all 4 and ending up getting 4k.. but I depipped xD Gatekeeper and chaser were both at black. Because they died so fast.

    I had only been playing the game about a month. Had a match where I managed to escape the killer a few times and he was salty about it. He had actually sent me messages while still playing about how he was going to get me. This was before EGC was implemented.

    We had managed to get enough generators for the hatch to open. I ended up being last survivor and heard the hatch. The killer was fairly close too. Thought I would be able to beat him to it. Just as I made my jump to go down the hatch the killer caught me mid air. He hung me on a hook right next to the hatch facing it.

    He hit me 2 or 3 times and sent me another quick I told you so message and calling me a few names. He then stepped just 2 or 3 steps away to break a pallet. Despite only having a 4% chance when I held that button to unhook it happened. I landed right on the hatch, hit the button and made it down before he could get there.

    Sent him a quick message that said "Better luck next time"

    A really good team was looping me quite well.

    I downed them a few times, but it was obvious after the 3rd Generator pop that they were all gonna escape.

    I get my 3rd hook and the Generators were done.

    Fortunately for me, there was one thing about them that was consistent all the way through the match: They were altruistic as hell.

    When i hooked Survivor #1 and downed #2 who was injured & nearby, wanting a quick unhook, #3 then quickly unhooked #1.

    Surprise: I now had 3 Tokens on Devour Hope, since #2 wasn't too close by.

    I pick #2 up and #4 stands in front of me, trying to blind me, not trying at all to evade my attack since they think they can tank it.

    #4 goes down.

    I hook #2.

    Barbecue & Chili told me the location of #3, i easily down them.

    #1 goes back to save #4, but i down #4 again.

    #1 goes to unhook #2, but i down #1.

    Then i down #2.

    Which was all made possible thanks to the looping they did: There were just no Pallets left at all.

    I didn't get to kill anyone with DH, but damn did that feel good.

    Totem must've been hidden really well, cause whether they cared or not, once the 1-hits started coming, they literally had no chances anymore.

    Loving these stories. Clutch victories are the best kind of victories

    I only had two hooks as Pig when the 4th gen was popped, but two people had Traps on (one active). As I go to put the third Trap on someone, the last gen pops, turning on the 2nd and 3rd Trap. I immediately open the Exit Gates and hook the person in the basement, forcing three people to get active Traps off with the EGC timer going. By the end of the game, two people were on a hook, one person died because the Trap timer ran out, and the last person died because Borrowed Time had them go down in front of a box via Deep Wound, and they chose to crawl to the Exit Gate where they were immediately killed for trying to escape with an active Trap.

    Not a big comeback, but I was happy. 😊

    A game where against Ghostface, he kept bouncing between Survivors being too altruistic, eventually my 3 fellow Survivors were slugged and I was injured....down to 2 Gens left....I was able to maneuver around the map and get two of them up, finish one of the Gens, sadly he got one on death hook and the other bled out.

    Ghost Face found me, was able to loop Ghost Face well enough for him to lose track of me, hid in a locker (bonus points as Dwight) that was next to an Exit Gate, last person (injured) finished the Gen....I got the gate open and they ran towards my general area, was able to take the hit and the two of us escape. Was almost a sealed desl for the Killer to get a 3k or 4k
