The 3.6.0 PTB is now live on Steam! For full details, click here:
We are aware and looking into the issue which caused players to have their rank reset further than intended. If your rank was not reset at all this month, this is a visual bug and closing and re-opening the game should fix it.
We have updated our Forum Rules. Please take a moment to read through them:

The "good killer" rules book

    Certainly seems that way. Had a match yesterday where I felt like giving up entirely after the toxicity of the survivors. Started EGC after they refused to open the doors (they were hunting for totems and chests). They ran about and tea bagged, but then I laughed myself silly when I found the last (injured survivor) who could have got out with the others but was evidently hunting for the hatch, gave up and raced to the still closed exit but ran out of time and got swallowed by the entity. Serve them right!

    OMG! This is actually true! I had an easy match yesterday where survivors kept running towards me by accident whyle me being Michael Myers and I got almost no bloodpoints for killing them way too fast! WTH is going on with this game! I like playing by the rules I posted in this topic, but that match got me mad!

  • DoccyDoccy Member Posts: 102

    Oh my god, stop making up rules. Just play the game and do whatever helps you win.

  • Mister_xDMister_xD Member Posts: 3,746

    here is my rule:

    4° dont give a [BAD WORD] about the first 3 rules and play the game the way you want to play it. if your succesfull, it worked, if your not succesfull, you might want to change your strategy.

    now, regarding the first 3 rules:

    1) camping: i agree that its not necessary to do so, but being within a 32m range to the hook (base TR size) is not camping. camping is when you stay very close to the hook with the intention to not let the survivor escape.

    2) tunneling: as sad as this may be, this is literally an requirement for any low - mid tier killer to stand a chance in high ranks. dont tunnel and get genrushed. yes, you may have 3 ppl on their deathhook and kill one of them when the gates are powered, but that does not reward yo uwith the needed emblems to win.

    3) yeah, because its my fault this dude can not accept a defeat. i can agree on giving the last one the hatch, if the game was fun, but just allowing them to do a gen? no.

    do me a favor and dont try to tell players how to play this game. you can do whatever you want, some things pay off and some do not. if you want to play with that rule set, no problem. but dont tell others they have to play with it when they want to be a "good killer". thanks.

    A rule should be pay attention to the survivors. You never know what's coming your way especially at the end.

  • LirulinielLiruliniel Member Posts: 2,432

    I have my own personal rules I follow as killer no camping and no tunneling, but generally the only one that's broken is the no tunneling since when I get back to the hook if your the only one still there well imma hit ya you dont get a free pass. Same when I play Pig your RBT does not give you a free pass if I run across ya.

    My biggest rule is if everyone, but you in the lobby is ready you got 10 seconds till I bring a mori and I'm happy to use it.

    You dont need to play by these "rules" if you want to pip. Here is Trapper gameplay without any crutch perks like Ruin, NOED, etc. You need to play efficiently, that it. Ofc you cant have pip in all games, but playing by your own rules raise your chances a lot.

    @Carlosylu Maybe you'll find some useful stuff in vid for yourself.

  • martin27martin27 Member Posts: 643

    When i first started playing DBD you could play as this so called "good killer" as still have a good time. If you avoided toxic gameplay as killers the survivors would do the same and you could exchange nice messages with each other. Not anymore the number of times i've tried to send a killer a nice message after the game had ended only to find that they've turned off messages. Don't camp get called a camper, chase your first survivor and get called a tunneler, let the last guy leave and be told you suck, drop down some BPS and everyone runs to infinite loop points. People have ruined this game like we ruin everything else.

  • AStupidMonkeyyAStupidMonkeyy Member Posts: 718

    If 2-3 gens pop and BBQ tells me the other 3 are on gens, I'm camping. You just ruined my ability to 3 hook everyone. 2 things can happen now. 1. They finish the gens and I kill the hooked and another before everyone leaves or 2. Everyone swarms the hook, I get repeated hooks and by the time someone gets away, I just killed 2 people and now will probably 4 man because of pressure and hunting down the 3rd while the 4th looks for hatch. Camping is a legit strategy and I'll do what I need to win. Either way, that team will talk [BAD WORD]. At least it's because I crushed them instead of being a whipping boy for their "fun".

  • LapisInfernalisLapisInfernalis Member Posts: 586

    @Mänzel Oh yes!

    And never Tombstone the * who wait for you at the exit gates. They just want to say Good bye!

    Never use Franklin's Demise. This damages a precious Item!

    And of cause: Never ever bodyblock. Especially with Billy, Bubba or 99% EWIII Myers.

  • TeaLeafTeaLeaf Member Posts: 205

    "who gets 3 or 4 out of 4 kills per game and DOESN'T GET HATE MESSAGES AFTERWARDS regarding his gameplay style " those two things don't go together... something in this doesn't belong.

  • CarlosyluCarlosylu Member Posts: 2,106

    Me... A lot... But it may be cause I'm rank 12, I don't know about higher ranks...

  • Caz2018Caz2018 Member Posts: 83

    Nope - I rarely get anyone complaining about my gameplay style. Even had a few 'GG'. But then I don't camp and try to avoid tunnelling if possible - though if the unhooked survivor is daft enough to hang around they go back on the hook. I've only ever had two salty comments when playing as killer: one calling me a Noob (which was accurate) and one complaining because I initiated EGC and managed to hook him with half the time bar gone. He still got rescued, and escaped - and as they'd been a royal pain in the butt the whole game, I really didn't care.

  • ReikoMoriReikoMori Member Posts: 1,308

    Yeah I'm not doing any of this because that isn't my job. We are killers. We are the bad guys, the villains. I want to have the feeling of being a vicious murderer and they typical don't do things that make no sense. That's my power fantasy when it comes to playing DBD.

    As a person who enjoys playing competitively and winning I prefer to base my skills around my record and the fact that I use every thing the game provides me. I expect my opponents to do the same as to expect anything less than that is unrealistic to me. I refuse to impose limitations for the sake of "fair play" in this game when I'm not being unfair to begin with and when I did play by these ridiculous rules I still got [BAD WORD] talked. I played through games doing their "fair play" rules and they certainly didn't play in the same "fair and fun" way.

    This stuff is just low grade brainwashing to keep people who want to play killer limited to what a vocal minority of survivors feel they can easily handle. The worst part is it works extremely well because you have other killers blindly repeating this stuff to new players and making them feel like their going to get in trouble or that they won't get better at the game by just playing the game as it is. Just play as your instincts and skill lead you to play.

    @ReikoMori That's why I see this thread as a satiric post.

  • LapisInfernalisLapisInfernalis Member Posts: 586

    The Killer's 10 Commandments:

    1) Thou shalt not let Survivors unhook their mate for free.

    2) Thou shalt not honor the 4%.

    3) Thou shalt not give the last the Hatch.

    4) Thou shalt not have mercy upon a recently unhooked Survivor.

    5) Thou shalt not let them tell thee what to do and not to do.

    6) Thou shalt not be afraid of using strong Killers or builds.

    7) Punish toxic Survivors, for they are not worthy to get more points.

    8) Thou shalt Mori them.

    9) Thou shalt not let the Survivors' salt spoil thy games.

    10) Thou shalt not let them escape.

  • AvilgusAvilgus Member Posts: 254

    1- Don't use two green/purple/pink addons

    2- Mori are good for collection so don't use them

    3- Don't play ruin with top tiers killer ( Nurse/Billy/Rin)

  • HunterKiller456HunterKiller456 Member Posts: 2

    It's totally bullshit this survivors's rules for killers, made by survivors who doesn't wants to lose. I'm a killer dude, so what do you think i'll am? the thing which make me diferent it's me i'm mercyless. I'm playing mainly RP and if i'm a killer(mainly the case) i'll be mercyless and crual. Example for you guys, i playing the hog-main and i love give to survivors a little bear game and watching out their game. If they failed one time to free up, they're hooked up, otherwelse, i let him for a moment.

    And i remember one time, survivors had real fun with me, 'cause i'm a great killer (great for me and for them) 'cause i bleed out them and i let some hope for them.

    Remind this comrades: here my rulesbook for killers:

    1-Death isn't the real reward, as a killer you must sniff the blood's smell of their wounds.

    2-Don't camping 'cause otherwise you block their hopes. And a killer don't destroy hope, at least not in early game. A killer drink survivors' hopes.

    3-If a survivor succeeded to escape you, let him go for a while, to give him some hope and go chase another one.

    4-Prioritizes altruism's survivors, they have the most hope in them.

    5-If it remain only one survivor while the gates are closed, Let down him, and see him crawling and searching some hope

    6-And the last one, let's have fun !!

    HA!! I LAUGH!! (Idc if you killer mains are getting sick of me saying this sentence because I always say this sentence when something is heavily stupid).

  • Chaddad2169Chaddad2169 Member Posts: 748

    I know you're banned but...

    You're dissing Carlosyu for not getting out of Rank 10 yet in the image you are literally rank 9. Ah I just love hypocrisy.

    Also, wow... good job you got a 4k with the most broken thing in the game and you insert said image of 4k to brag about it.

    But meh, survivors are OP

    I replied to the other person who was saying to you "maybe try to get out of Rank 10".

    I was replying to @Frozenscum 's post.

  • xEaxEa Member Posts: 902


    I reached this so called certain level of skill (im usually red ranked) and i see it the same as the OP and pretty much follow 2 of his rules (no camping no tunneling at all). The only thing i do different is his #3, whe some1 has a dc in the very beginning i simply farm with them.

    Why? I know It is very hard to play against really good SWF and then not camping or tunneling at all, but why should i want to have it easy?

    The Challange is what drives me, not the Rank or Bloodpoints or whatever other reason. Some of you guys have to step back and see it as what it is: A Video game with 5 people, where everybody wants to have fun.

    And the most fun i get out of this game as a killer is to have many good chases and eventually many hooks. Short: A lot of great gameplay.

    Who cares if you get stomped very once in a while or only get the 2 K instead of 4? Sometimes you get destroyed by the SWF 4 Man squad with instaheal and stuff like that, but again, who cares?
