What is a "win" to you?

CatbucketCatbucket Member Posts: 335

Ive been seeing a lot of things that have been making me curious, so I really want to ask both survivors and killers. What does it take for you to consider a round as a win? The game itself is pretty loose and open on this subject, and I've actually seen a lot of conflicting answers, so I'm just trying to gather a little information here.

    Pipping/having a fun match.

    Oh and making sure anyone who is a dick has the worst possible match. You sandbag me and attempt to work with the killer? Prepare to get farmed. Your playing a killer in a broken/unfun way (ie legion double mend exploit and other broken ways, mori spamming a guy you tunneled off first hook etc) I will personally loop you for 5 gens and make sure my teammates escape etc. You sandbag another survivor then farm them? Expect to get facecamped.

    But in general so long as the match is fun I've won 🙂

    As a killer, 4K. I can settle for a 3K, but that's not quite satisfying, except when I manage to catch the fourth survivor but decide to give him the Hatch.

    As survivor: I play two different styles. If I play stealthy, I want to escape. Don't care about pips, don't care about BP or how much I helped my team; if I manage to slip out, I'm happy.

    But a little more often, I get my We're Gonna Make It and/or BT, and try to do it all: saves, generators, wasting the killer's time. Survival be damned. That's the only case when I actually care about pips.

    Oh and there is one more thing: I always use Diversion. In any game, if I use it at least two-three times successfully and make the killer lose me in a chase, I feel like a winner, whatever the outcome of the trial.

    3 or 4k is a win

    2k is just average, definitely not a win though.

    Any kill you had to camp for doesn't count though imo.

    Like hypothetically gates are open and I've got someone on the hook. There's basically no reason to leave in this scenario so I don't blame a killer for camping at that point. However if that was me, that kill wouldn't be included in my "kill count" in deciding whether I won or lost.

    I also wouldn't count any kills from survivors just trolling at end game, DC's, or NOED (I don't use it though). All these extra scenarios aren't kills that were earned which is why they aren't included. (Also a reason the devs determining balance based on their kill stats is heavily flawed)

    I couldn't care less about pips.

    Just my opinion.

    My main reason for bringing this up, is Ive started to realise that a lot of killers only consider a 4k to be a win, meanwhile that reaaaaally doesnt seem to be the intention of the game. Similarly, Ive noticed a lot of survivors that will get downright belligerent if even one person doesnt escape.

    For the game to not crash and neither the survivors or killer quit. My standards these days are low.

    Escaping & killing all.

    It depends on what build I am running, but mainly just having fun and getting a lot of points and making fun plays. I mean for example if I’m playing trapper without ruin or NOED at red ranks against good survivors and I get get a lot of hooks and only end up with 1 or 2 kills, I consider that a win. If I’m instasaw billy with ruin and BBQ and a mori, anything less than a 4K I’m going to consider that a loss. Same thing on survivor side, if I get chased the whole match while my team gets 5 gens done and escape, I’m going to consider that a win in my book even if I die because sometimes dying or escaping is out of your control.

    A win for me is getting to do what I set out to do in the match.

    Sometimes that's escaping, sometimes it's not. When I run Santa Claus build and everyone beats me to opening chests I consider that a loss and it makes me want to DC.

    I don't know but I wouldn't mind finding you sometime! Here's hoping you find the happier souls some day haha

    Escaping as survivor and dominating survivors as killer. If I let survivors go as a killer I consider that a win too. I am not a 4k person.

    And yeah if killer lets me escape I consider that a loss.

    As long as I, and the other players had fun in the match, that's a win to me

    well besides having fun, if there have to be a win and lose then it would be for me if i play as survivor, i dont play just as myself, but as a team. so we win as a team, or we lose as a team. If the killer get 3+ kills he wins, if the survivors get 3+ escapes they win. 2k or 2 escapes is a draw. so if all my team dies, but i managed to escape as the only survivor, i still consider this a lose.

    3 kills and at least one gen left. as suvivor to dominate the killer and get facecamped because of it. its so fun and satisfying to see the killer give up on the match and "let" everyone else escape.

  • Name_UnavailableName_Unavailable Member Posts: 123

    having fun with the other 4 players in that game

    games without tunneling camping or gen rushing

    thats enough for me even if i didnt escape or i didnt kill anyone

  • ZerLukasZerLukas Member Posts: 59

    Escape as a survivor

    3-4 kills as a killer

    That's speaking strictly about wins/losses. Having fun is also very important to me but I separate that from the competitive part(win/lose)

  • MochanMochan Member Posts: 2,886

    I too consider that a loss, but I am thankful for the extra blood points.

  • EntitàEntità Member Posts: 1,552

    I desire a long, thrilling trial, a kind of horror adventure. The result is a secondary target: I want powerful emotions.

    Fun, Adrenaline rising, heroic moments, getting out alive when you thought you were dead.

  • SolidusPrimeSolidusPrime Member Posts: 27

    I don't think this game was ever originally meant as a black-and-white, win-or-lose type of thing. There are sooooooo many random factors in each and every match that you just can't help but get hooked sometimes, literally and figuratively.

    I think we were all meant just to dive in and have fun chasing or being chased in this world of darkness.

    Myself personally - I have fun in every match that doesn't ooze with toxicity. I have the most fun when matches are really, really close and that last survivor gets away by the skin of their nose :)

  • CatbucketCatbucket Member Posts: 335

    Thats actually the overall point I was getting at, I think a lot of people view this game as incredibly black and white. I am pleased to see some people that seem to genuinely enjoy just having a good time, and setting objectives for themselves, but yeah, I've also seen a few of the answers I was expecting now.

    2K or just pipping

  • Keene_KillsKeene_Kills Member Posts: 649

    Killer or survivor, I'm just here for the BP and a little fun.

  • PoisonNPoisonN Member Posts: 624

    As a main killer, if the match is healthy it's ok to me. I can lost the match but I didn't camp or tunnel nobody (I use Huntress)

    BUT survivors is always bullying me with tbags and flashlights, saying that I'm tuneller and creating so many excuses to say that I'm wrong so idk, I'm just doing for my stacks (BBC)

    I started having fun when i switched my messages to 'friends only' and stopped worrying about what other people thought about my playstyle as either survivor or killer. I actually find it more fun to try out new killers without having to worry about the salt you get whether you win or lose. Yeah I know i suck the first time round playing a killer, fairly sure i don't need confirmation from people.

    Other than that, anything non toxic from either side, that makes me laugh, I consider that a win, because it's a game, and while I appreciate people should be allowed to have a competitive attitude towards it, I simply don't.
