Survivors How do feel when you make a Killer Give Up?



  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 6,048

    I usually don't use "cheap tactics" or anything, but when I see that a survivor who suicided on their first hook was a rank 20 or something I feel bad because it probably means they've been having a lot of crappy matches in a row, and I know how miserable that can be.

    I've seen survivors just kind of give up mid-match, and if I'm playing aggressively I'll usually pull back and go easier on them for it because I know when I do that it means I've been having a bad night. I'm usually not playing to kill, anyway, so going easier on them doesn't change much except how much I pressure them to slow the game down.

    Some survivors feel bad about causing a killer give up, some don't. Some killers feel bad about causing a survivor to give up, some don't. That's just people.

    I’ve actually given up as a Killer multiple times. It usually happens when they bring in 3 toolboxes, brand new parts and blast through the gens before I could catch someone.

    And I don’t get tunnel vision anymore, I’ll chase someone for 30 seconds and break away if I feel they’re strong and go for weaker players, then I target someone else and they’re just as good so I have to break away. Target someone else and 3 gens are gone. I look behind me and the survivor is busy t-bagging and flashlight clicking.

    I mean I already feel bad enough that I can’t catch you. I don’t use powerful add-ons since I don’t have the blood points, I don’t have the experience that these teams of survivors do, nor do I want to memorize the location of every loop, pallet and God Window on every map.

    I just want to play and have some fun. It’s not fun getting matched with people who out rank me, so from now on, I will just go protect my basement chest. They want to bring in items to speed up the game and make it harder for me, that’s fine. I’ll help them make the game go faster by hiding in my underground home and protect my precious.

    Truthfully? I hate grinding free points but I also hate DCing for any reason. I usually search out chests and bring all the items to the killer while I wait for the exit to power. If other survivours are dragging it out farming/acting toxic then I'll have to go do a gen myself. On some occasions my offerings have convinced some afk/corner standing killers to come be silly with me.

    Overall though? I don't feel much of anything. I guess I hope they swap to a different game after this match so they can chill and have fun. I don't think anyone deserves to be miserable playing a video game.

    Is this on platforms? I keep hearing that this has happened, but I'm honestly not seeing anything of it. My que times as red rank killer are still 15 minutes plus. My que times as green/purple survivor are less than 3 minutes. The mach making has been crap for months. Heck, during December I was getting matches with all green rank survivors and even rank 19s.

  • Matchmaking has been really terrible lately. I was just on a team of all Red Rank Survivors against a Level 14 Killer. How on Earth is that even a fair chance for that player?

    This. I've been trying to work on my killers and I swear I'm like... A green against reds. I know they're better at the game than me.

    It's obvious in the first few minutes. It's not fun, and I'd rather sit through a 20 min survivor queue where I at least have a chance than have my green rank thrown against people who are rank 4. It's... It's not fun. I've only been playing a few months, match me against people who have the same relative skill. Yeah I know you can AFK your way to rank one half the time, but good lord when it's 4 red ranks against me at 12 or whatever... It just feels garbage.

    I know. You won. You're better at the game. Please leave, you don't need to teabag at me. I KNOW. YOU WON. Congrats. I don't bother to disconnect, I just watch. You're at the exit right at the edge of where you're safe. I can't catch you even if I wanted to. Just take your points, keep your item, and go.

    It's not fun if the killer gives up.

    Annoying af, getting into games takes long enough, then for a team to actually be doing something while im actually looping then they give up/ quit because gens get done is annoying, its more at fault to the ranking though so many people are use to survivors not actually doing anything and then when people go against those that know how to play they just give up. once again they need to fix the ranks and then seeing what needs to be balanced will be more clear

    Yeah, matchmaking is seriously borked.

    I'm not great at killer, so when I chase a survivor who's obviously out of my league (it's not like I can see ranks before a match), then I do one of two things: I ditch them and go back to patrolling gens, or I throw the match and continue the chase. Sometimes I do the second one just for the hell of it, but I do it knowing full well I'll be ending with nearly no points. Unfortunately, inexperienced killers may not realize that continuing the chase means they're throwing the match.

    And sometimes I do get bored with all of it and just go wait for the match to end so I can move on to the next one. It's not like I'm sad or upset I'm losing--I usually play for BP and let everyone escape, anyway--but I just get bored with running in circles or the scratch marks being crap on whatever map I'm on or grabs failing for the millionth time or survivors running through Plague's vomit unaffected... -sigh- There are so many bugs in this game.

    I feel you man I have never disconnected or started AFKing but sometimes its tempting I'll have a number of matches were I'm completely outclassed flashlighed and teabagged into oblivion. Its frustrating to lose is absolutely infuriating to 4 survivors butt dance all the way out of the exit gate or 3 at the gate or one at the hatch. Then some to rub even more salt in the wound will message you to gloat and tell you uninstall the game.

    Makes me sad because they're less likely to play killer now.

  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 4,188

    Well, if a survivor DCs on final hook I treat it like a normal death. If they dc on first down I let the team farm and escape.

    But if I see someone using all meta perks... it makes me a little pissed at their lack of originality.

    Hurts to see them give up mid-match or DC because of you. .-.

  • Stitch7833Stitch7833 Member Posts: 632

    well itll be down to ranks, while a bunch of people say ranks doesnt matter it use to mean something, iv played the game a long time, im one of those survivors that know all tiles, loops and could even hit ruin everytime so im a strong survivor but because so many survivors are now red ranks even though they cant do half of the things i can theres no gradual adjustments for killers to learn/adept to higher skill and in chase i will say this guy isnt a high rank, not in a mean way but you can tell by their movement etc. but i also get teams that no matter what you cant win with them because they shouldnt be at that rank, they will go down in 5seconds, be scared to do gens etc. which is why ranks important, it not only teaches you to get better before ranking too high but balances the survivors to killer better

    I feel bad.

    I wasn't even bullying I swear

  • Since I am not responsible for anyone's actions, I don't care if a player feels the need to quit/DC or whatever. Be it a killer or survivor.

    If I am a survivor and the killer goes afk, then I am taking the best the chests have to offer, clearing all totems and generally doing all I can to maximise points.

    If I am a killer and someone DC's, then I kill 2 other survivors and let the best survivor player take a hatch.

    If afterwards I see the contributing factor being the evil mistress matchmaker, then I will message them if they don't have ######### settings enabled, as that was unfair.

    Otherwise, I take a slight pleasure from knowing I caused you to have some kind of irrational emotional response that most likely caused you some discomfort.

  • KurosujiKurosuji Member Posts: 27

    Depends on the situation. If they've been ######### the whole time, I'm gonna do everything in my power to give them a bad time. But if it's a killer that genuinely isn't that good at the game I do feel bad, I'm not going to let them get a free hook but I dont want to make them upset and want to give up.

  • hammertimehammertime Member Posts: 51

    They don't care. They still do the humping ######### around your character. Most of the time I'm doing a challenge once I get it I'll stop playing, go on my phone, and drink a beer, but from the corner of my eye I see them doing #########. Sometimes I'll just chase survivors and not hit them very obviously and they still troll. Goes to show you that bullies are idiots. Probably voted for Bernie because everything has to be on their way. You may have this game survivors, but Donald trump will still be your president in 2020. ;) in fact, they should make Donald trump a killer in this game and Nancy Pelosi a survivor. Donald trumps mori could be him hammering a trump 2020 sign on the survivors head. His ability could be that he closes any way to exit through a gate because you can't escape him as your president. Perks? Liberal tears. When a survivor sees the don their action speed drastically declines. Another one? Unimpeachable. After the last generator is repaired, they all break again. A third? Sure. Witchhunt, if a survivor stuns the don via DS or what not, the don yells witch hunt, and the survivor becomes stunned instead. This rant was brought to you while I stopped playing the killer midmatch and waited for survivors to win the match. Lolol.
