I pretty much say it any time it's the first thing said by someone else in chat, or if it was really close, whether I win or lose. :)
I see... and nice to know you read my discussion @Almo :)
last longer then 4 min and everyone had fun.
From my experience a GG is only said when x side wins. Otherwise you are met with crickets or abuse.
I rarely talk anything in the chat, only when a funny bugs occurs or the game was so well played on both sides.
Otherwise i laughing while reading salty posts on my steam profiles or people fighting each other on the chat
This. Or when I escape against a really sweaty killer / or kill a really sweaty group of survivors.
I had a great time as killer.
I didn't tunnel, didn't camp, didn't use NOED.
I did everything perfectly as a killer would but....
Not 1 GG.
I at least thanked them for the BPS.
This was in Hawkins, that God-Awful map.
If it's a match i say gg.
No conditions always gg to be polite because this community has a toxicity issue. Telling my team/opponent i had a bad time would just add more negativity
If I had fun that match. I don't care if I "lose". Get a lot of points, or depip. I care if while playing the game I wasn't just running in circles, and walking through pallets after pallets after pallets, and windows. Like what's the point of calling this game a Horror game if no one is scared, and we are all just playing ring around the rosie?
I will send a “GG” if I feel as though the game could’ve gone either way and if the opposing side played well.
Just the other day I was chased for a majority of the match, farmed off the hook, slugged, and died. I was a bit upset at how the match went and didn’t really like the way the killer played but I still sent a “GG” and the killer turned out to be really cool and complemented me on the way I played and how long I kept up a chase.
Most games I’m not upset enough to say anything other than “GG”.
You did that on Hawkins?
You must be an insanely good nurse way below your rank or all the Survivors are boosted af. Or both. Nice going!
I GG if people didn't play like turds (constantly humping infinites, tbagging, being cocky at the exit gate, slapping survivors on the hook, etc etc.) Now if you asked how often do I get a gg, only when I lose most of the time.
Thank you, I purposely stay at Rank 16, I don't kill anyone about 80% of the time but I had a daily as Nurse and I got carried away.
With me, it hangs on being a fair game.
If i am highly outskilled from the start because of bad matchmaking, the game is never good. Its not fun just to run behind a looping survivor and never catch him because they simply outskill you. If i finally got them, i can start camping because only one or 2 gens are left anyway.
On an equal game, however, i dont even care about the outcome. you have some chases, you win some, you hook people and go for the rest, you break some gens, they finish some, and its a back and forth where you cant tell who will really make it. Thats a gg for me.
It has to be a competitive match on some level. It doesn't necessarily have to be competitive on a 4v1 level, but at least the interactions have to be competitive. If it's lopsided, it just sound like sarcasm to slap a GG, even if it's nobody's fault really.
No point in writing GG in an asymmetric game. Especially if there is no common sense of what is considered fair play.
the game to actually be a good game. I don't get to say it very often because either my side or the other side seems to get screwed over 99% of the time.
My conditions are:
Just stick around till you can write gg.
I'll always write gg, if I'm not bored and die first as a survivor and have to wait 10 mins for the game to end xd
If I'm still there when the game ends.
Sorry, but if someone thinks me saying GG like I've always done in every game I've played is trolling, ironic or "he actually means git gud!" that's their problem and not mine. They are free to just don't write gg themselves, but if they're typing out some "actually... it was bg" response I've probably already left so that's their time wasted and not mine.
As @Lexilogo explained, it's when the game starts accelerating in an exponential way to its end. You'll recognize a snowballing game when you see gens getting rushed one after another, or when you see someone getting hooked, and saved instantly, only for the rescuer getting downed, hooked and rescued, rinse and repeat hook after hook in just a few seconds. Another high risk snowballing case is the basement hooks.
As a killer i hate when people do multiple hook trades, even if it's technically them handling a win to me. Same when playing survivor and 3 gens get done instantly. I mean if i finish a game in 3 minutes or less, it feels like it was a missed opportunity for a good match.
Of course it's all subjective. I'm the one who doesn't find speedrunning appealing, and i usually play other games at the slowest pace possible (Civilization Marathon speed, for example 😁 )
Biggest issue is I never get games that are close as either Killer or Survivor. 9/10 games one side completely stomp the other side. I've had days where I've steamrolled the opposing team all day and then days I was steamrolled all day.
After thousands of hours I'm not bad at winning more often than losing.
I miss close games.
When crutch perks decided the winner
My conditions for a GG is a non-gen rushing SWF Team 6 and full stacks of BBQ.
I don't mean typing GG at the end
I want to know what makes a good game... stop with the typing bs
I feel like I have had plenty good games but I'd rather not type GG at the end or send messages
What makes go into your next match still remembering what happened in the last match
I don’t GG unless I receive the message first, and I’ll respond if the player who is saying it wasn’t toxic
Regardless of the end result, I always say GG. For me to be personally satisfied with the game as a killer, I have to get min. 2 kills. Pipping doesn't matter to me because I'm already Rank 1 and ranks just don't matter anymore. As a Survivor, I have to get a minimum of 18k points. Even if I don't survive, that's what I'm striving for. I play killer more often to get BP because being a Survivor just sucks at getting BP, especially solo queue.
Both sides have a challenging match and both sides nearly win.
I will say "gg" even if it is not a good game. It's good manners, you respect the other players by telling that the match was good.
Now to really think that the match was good It has to accomplish at least one of the following things:
As a Killer, a GG is a 4k. Anything less is a varying degree of loss.
As Survivor, a GG is me escaping. Anything less is varying degree of loss.
Not that loosing is necessarily bad. If I loose a game that I enjoyed I don't mind at all. But the game's conditions on what counts as a 'win' or 'loss' is foggy, so I just make it very strict and straightforward for my own sake.
So what I learned is that players either extend GG as good manners or as a token to all players skill during the match
Am I wrong in saying that?
