After reading your replies to some of these comments, I feel your frustration and I hope I can help you.
Anyway, I had it happen to me once and it was against a Spirit (I could see her like 20 feet away from where I spawned), my immediate instinct was to hide and look for the nearest pallet in case she found me so I could stall her and give enough time to my teammates to work on generators. Luckily she didn't see me.
My advice would be to prepare and use your sight to your advantage. If you spawn and already hear the terror radius, hide as quick as you can and look for the nearest pallet immediately. Loop around for a bit until you see the nearest window/pallet and take advantage of it.
I hope this helps.
Yeah and us killers are tired of getting into our first chase and hearing 2 gens pop before you even get a hit.
You might be playing the wrong game if stuff like this makes you suicide on hook. Like, it's DBD, that's part of it. If you don't enjoy it, you should find another game to play.
That's some next level entitlement right there.
Gonna use this as an example map. Lets say I spawn in the bottom left. I KNOW the likelihood that a survivor spawning directly opposite of me (top right) is basicly 100%, however its abit of a walk and often times good to not go directly there right away. While I dont expect anyone to have spawned ontop of me in the bottom left, its pretty common theyd still spawn on the same side of the map as me and would be in the bottom right. Perks like whispers work wonders for verifying these hunches. Its probably like a 50% chance that someone is there and its pretty quick to check upon spawning in.
Correct, like I said, what I would do is beeline to the upper right, but I would be looking as I went in the other spots for any signs of a survivor, If I see a survivor or scratch marks im going to go to that location, if I see nothing then I'm not, as it's far more likely survivors spawned in the upper right rather than right next to me. Those survivors are also more likely to be running freely since they are not within my TR and I can see their scratch marks. The problem with survivors spawning next to the killer is that the survivors can instantly start hiding, not showing any signs they are in that area. If the killer runs whispers, that's a different story.
Meh- there are offerings to help with that- try playing blendette and get used to staying low if you're too easy to spot normally
Apologies. I was highly strung earlier.
Which I clearly acknowledged.
Whispers is often a go-to for me on killers that might not naturally have built in tracking. If I'm playing Legion, I have the killer instinct...so I dont bother with whispers. If Im playing Huntress though, Ill toss on whispers. Between her huge hum range and slow movement speed, its not uncommon for survivors to hide well in advance.
I would rather hear the TR than nothing at all. Its those quiet moments that make you panic.
It's all good. We all get upset at times
Lol. 😂Maybe try a different game?
Did you even bother to read the post?
For sure try to keep as many ppl occupied at once as you can. I was just saying its a good idea to check the close spots first that go straight across the map. If you can spot more than 1 working on a gen at a time, try to pressure both ppl rather than trying to focus on a down from the first person you come across. This is more a conversation about gen pressure at this point though as opposed to just early game tracking.
Most people are bad at chase, but there are absolutely things you can do to get better at chase if you want to. When I started playing, I was like, I could be a Claudette like everyone else and just hide, but I want to actually get into chase and learn the game. I get caught a lot at the start of the game too, and I don't mind because I know chances are, I'm the best person at chase out of the whole team. As a survivor, being good at DBD is being good at being chased. It's not about hiding and repairing gens. I'd recommend watching youtube videos or catching some survivor main streams so you can see how it's done.
You didn’t read my post at all...
I understand, and sympathize, so for your sake and the sake of others with this problem, I'll start running more Stealth Killers/Perks so that you don't have to hear the TR after a few steps. 😉
Okay... I can at least see the funny side to that.
It is so hilarious that the guy advocating for respectful speech in the internet is the same guy that kills himself on hook and ruins the game for his teammates if killer finds him first. That's kinda consistent.
I didn’t say “every time I’m found first”.
Being found first isn’t the problem. The problem is when I’m found first because of this EXACT circumstance: where for all intents and purposes I’m spotted pretty match as soon as the match starts. The killer shouldn’t spawn THAT close to a survivor.
I've had plenty of games where I've literally spawned in an open area, with not a single tile near me, and the killer looking in my direction. It happens, and it really does suck.
Thank you, if only so that others can know I’m not making this up.
I’m tired of the replies here implying “this doesn’t happen, the killer always spawns on the opposite side of the map”
Or “stop leaving scratch marks every where”. Walking doesn’t leave scratch marks.
Yeah, you're pretty clear in what you're saying, tbh.
The map I find to be the worst offender, is Azarov's Resting Place. A few times I've spawned in the middle, outside of the tiles, with the killer spawning in front of me also not behind a wall/in a tile, and they're facing me. Once happened with a Spirit. Game over.
It’s total crap having a match start like this.
Well, why it is the problem? That's basic survivor playing sequence: stealth, generator, looping, hook, rescue, repeat. It doesn't really matter where you start it. Killer will find you earlier or later. Like, if he won't, you are just playing "hold m1 - press space" quick time event simulator, and that's boring as hell.
BTW, I'm not sure, but your actual problem could be not in spawn points. I have a feeling that right now loading into the game happens not simultaneously. That could be a crossplay issue or something.
I did get that as both killer and survivor, as a survivor it was only when the killer used the "all survivor's spawn separated" offering tho and usually was easy to not get spotted since you rarely expect a svv to be under your nose 5m into the game as a killer.
