Why don’t Killers like looping anymore?

gatsbygatsby Member Posts: 2,339

It seems like most Killers don’t like good old fashioned looping anymore. They’ll leave you at the drop of a hat if you’re playing good and camp you like crazy if they can tell you’re playing bad.

Killers with anti-loop spam that stuff so hard it’s like they’re allergic to looping normally. Huntress, Doctor, Pyramid, Freddy and Billy players will go around and around for ages trying to use their power, when they could’ve just looped the standard way, ate the pallet and moved on. It’s actually crazy.

Are most Killers unconfident and rusty with their traditional looping now or what?

    Learning the ins and outs of your power takes time and a lot of failure. Just keep playing as well as you implying you’re playing and hopefully the killers who inspired this post learn from it.

    It is the game. Maybe take a break when feeling like that. Losing really badly because you just don’t participate in basics and ignore fundamentals is not going to relax you as killer.

    This is highly incorrect. This might work out against some Tournament Squads (but I know, every Forum-Killer goes against them all of the time), but not in regular DBD-Games, even with SWF-included. Dropping Pallets immediatly and not killing the team by doing so would work at max on Ormond.

    Most Maps dont have many Pallets, even tho they are safe, which creates some bad situations (and honestly, there should be way more Pallets, but less safe ones) where god Survivors can run around Killers who need to break the Pallets and bad Survivors throw the few Pallets on the Map so that their team does not have any ressources left.

    Like, I regularly have games where Shack Pallet is gone at 5 Gens. Like, just thrown, who needs it anyway. So saying that Survivors can just play safe and win is not correct at all. This only works if your team is actually doing stuff AND you have the right Map for that, but I can assure you that at least the first point is not given that often.

    But a solution for that would be that instead of having 8-12 safe Pallets, every Map has like 20+ Pallets where like 2 or 3 are safe and the rest is quite unsafe. But sadly something like that would not work out since Bloodlust exists.

    people try to do fancy stuff with their power because regular m1 looping is actually pretty boring its when you start throwing these abilitys in there which is where the excitement comes from

    Because it is boring for killers, but as survivor to loop is the only fun part about the gameplay. And the only killer that can cut loops to non existant is so hard do play, that most ppl give it up after a couple of games.

    Anymore ? When did they ever like looping :D

    @gatsby the process you're describing ends with "eating a pallet and moving on" rather than "getting a down," so that's why. I think most people would rather mess around and see if they can actually get a hit out of it rather than commit to running in a circle with no reward.

    Because the game fundamentally incentivizes finding one or more bad Survivors on the the team ASAP and taking advantage of those weak links, and a loop is probably the best way to determine who the weak players are. A good Survivor will eat up a lot of the Killer's time on loops whereas a bad Survivor is likely to eat up not as much time. You'd rather have a good Survivor holding down M1 on a gen (since in most cases, they won't be that much faster on the gen than a bad Survivor) and a bad one trying to keep you occupied.

    If they say it's boring then they must be lying cause they're still playing the game for fun lmaooo
