The Reason Behind The Toxicity
We have all suffered some sort of BM, be it at this game or another.
One side suffers fromthis issue more than the other. Of course, Killers.
Yet why are survivors so toxic sometimes?
Well, if we look at it, they don't start out like that. At least not all of them.
If You watch streamers, you'd find that most survivor main streamers are Extremely toxic. Maybe not in words but in playthrough.
So let's say Individual X just purchased this game. He searches up some youtubes, finds some decent playthrough videos not promoting toxic, tries them out and either : fails horribly because of his being A newbie / the match making trolled him with a full perk so ewhat experienced killer.
Or if luck smiled, he wins and escapes.
Now in any end, X will continue playing, until the dreaded moment comes where X decides he wants to watch streams.....
And X sees the toxic playthrough, and how easy it is. Plus, It's the 'Pros' way of doing it. So of course X will switch to Toxic Easy-Mode, thinking that he's playong like the pros. And when he wins, he believes he's joined the Pros. So any time he'll lose, X will get angry, as X thinks this is the optimal play. Pair that up with streaks of wins and escapes,so anything that breaks this streak is bound to nail in a tantrum.
@weirdkid5 Also mentioned something very important : Mob mentality. When Three more Back you up, you feel right and justified.
And now to add some psychology, as I saw another post taking this route.
Few human egos truly accept their weaknesses. Everybody likes to be the strong, the superior.
Here's the contradiction : You'd think they'd play killer then, right? But well, this game promotes itself as A survival Horror.
Even in survival horror, You're the one who escapes the Nightmares. This still brings in satisfaction. And in those games, losing isn't as Painful as in Multi player games, where it is kind of humiliating.
To get back on track, They play survivor and lose. They think ":Man! I can't fight back!! "
"I can't fight back" : If you see the meta, it allows full on confrontation.
DS: get caught, laugh at his face
SB: He ain't catching U Fast Boi
SC: MMORPG heals
Adrenaline : Yeah, I'll just get in this last chase for some points.
BT: Save, farm, he/she might live or not, who cares, Killer gonna run after the injured
Flashlights : The devs stated this is a 'weapon' for survivors. What more would you want (other than a gun)
BMming is also literally looking down on your opponent. It's saying ":I'm better, stronger, and smarter than you" And the human ego loves that.
In summary, Toxicity Starts very early, from people not understanding the base of this game and hiw it is supposed to be played, to The streamers promoting Toxicity, survivors Are exposed to This a lot more than normal, decent playthrough.
Anybody else got any explanation (other than it being 'fun' aka appeals to Sadistic needs)?
