Everytime a survivor complains about anything they get harassed by killer mains who call them entitled,crybabys or toxic and tell them to git gud instead of just discussing why they disagree with the survivor. Can anyone tell me why? Killers call survivors toxic over everything but insulting someone for there opinion also sounds a bit toxic.

This thread is old please ignore

    Yeah just do your best to avoid engaging with them as any criticism of the match a lot take as you 'attacking' them and bruises their ego. You do get some who are open and honest about unfair hits/glitches or 'unreasonable play' and will discuss it normally though. But if you do start getting 'ez' and 'git gud' comments back just leave them to it and don't pander to them

    Because killer gameplay feels way more competetive. So the people mainly playing killer are more focused to win (4k/pip) than the survivor side.

    I dont main any side but i do play more killer cos i am far better at it. I suck as a surv but am better than avg at killer. Plus i like the extra bp

    Hey now, let's try not to generalize all killer mains as toxic people.

    For a lot of multiplayer games, players come to the forums mostly to complain rather than give thanks and compliment, so it makes a lot of sense that killers in green/purple ranks would come over here and complain; It is pretty frustrating in those ranks. (mostly due to matchmaking but you get my point). Or simply people who have experienced bad matches, or have had many bad experiences with certain perks.

    You can ask the exact same to survivor mains xD. Alot of survivors call me for no reason toxic, camper, tunneler, slugger (As oni how dare I slugg as oni!!) or they insult me personally because I killed them.

    I'm talking about the fourms but yea Im game survivors are toxic alot

  • Kalec84Kalec84 Member Posts: 487

    I'm not really "mean" but i have to say, as example.

    Just got a match at rank 1 with oni, played as far as possible, got away from hooked ppl, didint slug too much (is oni) didnt tunneled,got 2 kills, the surv were good, nice game you will say.

    Nope, in the post game chat one of them literally said:

    -Rank 2 #########? You are #########!

    Now, if i win being an a-hole you insult me, if i play fair you insult me wile laughing cuz you escape...

    you can say not all survivors are like that, but how can i know from time to time?

    also, disable end game chat, i do that some times, is relaxing

    There was a post about infectious fright needing a nerf ( i think its balanced) and some people were telling him about calm spirit but others were just insuling him

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 4,090


    Alright in that case that is weird, I never meet ppl like that here, but it seems that alot of ppl here are passive agressive. I mean with that, they write often replies that seem to call you negatively out or your opinion but they hide that in a wording where it is not that bad than it should sound. I made a while ago a post about unbreakable, that the perk can be very strong if it works. Then once someone answered with "Devour hope, if it works its too good LUL".

  • KwikwittedKwikwitted Member Posts: 641

    Because it's obviously a situation where said perk just hurt him in one game so his overreaction is to complain and ask for it to be nerfed, which is insanity.

    This is the kind of stuff that makes survivor mains or survivor-sided players look out of touch and frankly stupid, whining about a perk on a whim when killers tend to be bringing up issues they see in EVERY game.

    They deal with a lot of toxic survivors so they have to stand strong playing alone against gangs of bullies in some games.

    Will posts like this ever end?

  • HeartboundHeartbound Member Posts: 3,256

    If I had to guess its because you really only see killer mains in three scenarios.

    You were the last to die and you're sitting there with a person expecting you to attack them.

    You all 4 escaped and you're having fun with your survivor friends and the killer is pouty because he displeased the entity.

    The killer got mad enough to make a forum post.

    Most killers 4k every game (and sometimes 5k) and never feel angry in the slightest so there's no reason to post about problems.

    Just don't complete any generators and make sure not to crawl away from the hook like an entitled survivor main and you'll see killer mains are quite kind. They may even give you the hatch if you're a really good boy!

    I completely agree with this, there is an equal amount of salt and toxicity in the forums from both killer and survivor.

    Survivors moan about camping and tunnelling and will get responses like "git gud", don't get caught in the first place", "oh you must be rank ##" etc

    Killers moan about gens going too fast and they're met with "git gud", "pressure the gens, it's not that hard", "oh you must be rank ##" etc

    You get the point, but as above post said ignoring one side and pointing the finger at another is just plain silly.

    It’s not an opinion it’s fact and if killer mains explained to every crybaby why, there would be no time to even play the game. Why would you explain in full detail why their stupid a hundred times over. You need to copy paste or just call them stupid for not researching themselves with logic and experience. Honestly it’s frustrating because devs lean towards lower rank complainers. It’s so easy it’s actually gotten boring a bit as survivor in swf.

    Put very simply, the people who are rude and abrasive to each other on this forum, understand that there is no real consequence to being an ass to someone over the internet, in a way that most of them wouldn't dare to in real life. Both sides are as bad as each other for this, because you don't have to be killer or survivor to treat people like cr*p, its a personal choice.

    And all over a video game. Christ I must be getting old, because i just don't understand it myself.

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,752

    I mean, survivors do it too

    I don’t do it that often

  • thrawn3054thrawn3054 Member Posts: 5,274

    Honestly both sides can be pretty hostile towards each other. Though I would agree on the average the killers seem quicker to be hostile.

    Years ago it was decreed that all killer mains must smite all those that have the will and hope to survive. They was told to do the enititys work to drain these so called survivors of all hope and that certain plucky will they have...

    Unfortunately I really don't have a clue I am a proud pig main but also play suriviour. Unfortunately it works both ways and this war with each other really stops the actual improvement we all desire.

    I will always listen to views on how to improve this game unfortunately some will not. And the trolls that like to insite petty baits and insite reactions are the worst offenders. Nothing will change unless we change and drop this behaviour.
