do you tunnel every game?

i used to play "fair" however since ruin is GONE i now tunnel every game when in the past id let survivors heal and then kill them over time. i feel this is my balance now to what has made the game very hard for killers. i cant be the only one that is doing this

    Only if it gives me pressure. I slug much more often now, though.

  • LofepramineLofepramine Member Posts: 163

    I still don't because I also play survivor and know how unfun that is. I still play fair unless they're being toxic.

  • RobMeister88RobMeister88 Member Posts: 351

    I only tunnel if I know the person is a weak looper, and I often try to hook them in a dead zone if I can or near a gen that's close to being done. I won't tunnel someone who goes to a safe zone right off hook, I'll find someone else and tunnel them while trying to maintain pressure on the gens. Either that or I'll try to make survivors 3 gen themselves but gen lock does nothing against swf so tunneling/slugging seem to be the only options to apply pressure, unless the survivors are potatoes.

    No. DS makes it pointless as you lose all pressure but it was never good before that anyway. Tunnel one and ignore 3 others and you get genrushed. Tunneling only works at low ranks.

    I “ tunnel” when somebody decided to waste their DS just for being “toxic” and already have enough pressure to justify eating it

    it’s like “hey bitch, remember that DS? Yeah, you don’t have it anymore”

    they want to BM me with their DS, I just return the favor

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 7,318

    Same. Want to use your DS outside of tunneling situations? Fine, but you won't have it when I tunnel you.

  • McLightningMcLightning Member Posts: 949

    If they have a key. Yes, they will die a quick death.

  • RuncoreRuncore Member Posts: 328

    Yeah, because tunneling is just imaginated phrase based on non-existing rulesbook. Its just doing objective and instead of X chases I prefer delete one survivor after one from game.

  • kidmaxxkidmaxx Member Posts: 57

    Before ruin nerf I tried not to tunnel because 'ethics'.

    Now I do it whenever it's the best move because I'm pissed. That said, there are a lot of times where it isn't the best move.

  • KycerKycer Member Posts: 337

    I usually only tunnel after getting a bs DS but that’s only on the right time of course. Some times I just eat the bs ds and ignore it because I really can’t afford to tunnel or else I’ll lose the game.

  • LaakeriLaakeri Member Posts: 833

    I still play "fair". I just dont play anything beside top tier killers as I want to keep my play style.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 4,143

    I usually do. The faster I can get rid of the weakest link the better.

  • SlamadamSlamadam Member Posts: 48

    based on beeing ds'd i sometimes tunnel 3 people at once.

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536

    Killers "yeah I tunnel"

    Also killers "Why is DS so strong??!"

  • SlamadamSlamadam Member Posts: 48

    survivor "if you need ruin you have to get good"

    also survivor -> runs ds unbreakable dh every game.

  • WaffleyumboyWaffleyumboy Member Posts: 7,318

    I never ran ruin or ds. Unbreakable and DH are fair and balanced.

  • McLightningMcLightning Member Posts: 949

    Survivors: DS is only for anti tunnel.

    Also survivors: Look at me with DS parading around in front of the killer who isn't tunneling cause he can't do anything about it!

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536

    That makes no sense. What a ridiculous comparison. Ruin and DS/Unbreakable are completely unrelated.

    Rampant tunneling is why DS was made like this. Rampant slugging is why unbreakable came along. Just like how survivors abusing infinites got them removed, abusing window vaults got them changed, swf abusing instaheals got them nerfed.

    If something becomes common in the game and it affects the enjoyment of the game for a lot of people then a solution will come along.

    DS exists the way it does because all the noob killers tunnel everyone to death.

  • SlamadamSlamadam Member Posts: 48

    ye thats why it has no trigger condition, you can jump in a locker and be invincible for a minute, i can chase down and hook someone else, come back and still get ds'd cause that obviously just tunneling amiright?

    Dont bother if they find tunneling fair or not. If a person doesnt know how to hide or simply stays at the hook even though you patrolled 5 different gens before comming back, the first person you find you will chase it. It does not matter if that person was the same you just hooked. If you get tunneled as a good survivor you win the match for your teamates, if you are a bad survivor you just need to get better.

    No one seems to get bothered when they are "tunneled" and 5 gens pop. Because that's what will happen if you tunnel a good survivor most of the time. When they are outplayed they dc or cry "why you tunnel"?

  • DwinchesterDwinchester Member Posts: 961

    If the game is going ok, I won't tunnel. If I'm being gen rushed, yeah I will tunnel just to give myself a chance.

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536
  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    No it depends.

    Depends on what? Probably the survivor who did unhook, if he is going to be a coward that just hides, fine by me. I dont care as long as i put somebody down.

  • fleshboxfleshbox Member Posts: 494

    Sometimes i am like a mindless zombie killer who just tunnels anything to death. Yeah, sometimes i do tunnel. If others get in my way that just makes me tunnel even more cos i know what that hit means to them if they are willing to take one. That sometimes backfires with protection hits. Its a game. They must know i tunnel and provide worthy of opponents at times that can deal with a killer that can and will tunnel.

    There was a period of a few days last month where i was getting DS after DS. This is the result of tunneling. What made the games even better is that i recovered and still got them. DS just pisses me off. I dont use it as surv. Never will.

  • SlamadamSlamadam Member Posts: 48

    guy is called clickyclicky. prob just the guy jumping into a locker with ds ready every time the killer spots em. just vs tunneling i swear.

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536

    If you're getting hit with DS often then you need to look at how you play. It's very rare for me to be hit with it.

  • McLightningMcLightning Member Posts: 949

    So if I hook 2 other people..and go to a gen and find the person who was hooked ages ago, and they still have DS...that's my fault?

    Broken logic.

    "If you're getting owned by Billy so much, stop letting him down you hurdur"

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536

    So you're downing 2 survivors and hooking them then walking halfway to the map chasing and downing another survivor and they still have DS?

    Stop using Hillbilly 😉

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    That is because you rarely play killer at all. When you do you get hit by it, seems accurate.
