Killers Need to Stop Taking Chases so Personally

I swear every game where I manage to do well in a chase, more than half the time I get a killer who will sit there on me, teabag me, shake their head frantically like they just won the E- Superbowl. I'm sorry that it took you eight chases to finally down me, but it's not my fault, dude.

It makes me not want to get better at chases. I'd rather be knocked down in 15 seconds and hooked, than to do well in a chase for a minute and get slapped around and told no like a bad nanny for an extra minute. Yeah it's good for the game but it's certainly not enjoyable to experience. I'm already high adrenaline from managing to somehow survive a chase for that long, now you want me to take a beating I didn't deserve?

    I hate when I get found and get that awful lil dance of victory followed by slashing on the hook. My poor, pink Meg... crying on that hook with a slashing camper... I can't even think about it!

    Yeah everytime I do well I always get camped even if I don't tbag or click because I never do those things. I think if you do good in chase a lot you just have to have DS so you can do something once your unhooked rather than just go right back on.

    I try not to complain on the forums because:

    A.) If it's a balance or feedback complaint, the devs won't give a flying f**k what we think (they don't even listen to their own Fog Whisperers)

    B.) If it's a community/behavioral issue, people don't give a s**t.

    C.) If it's about literally anything, people don't care. The only thing we can do is say "hey, this is an issue" and hope people gain more than 2 braincells within their lifespan.

    Also, not trying to provide a counter argument. Just trying to say "I hear ya, but everyone deals with it and no one seems intent on stopping it, so why we bitching." 😞 It's a shame I have to say that. This game and it's community has gone to s**t. Shame too

    I see a lot of "counter" arguments here, which basically sum up, "Oh you think X has it rough? Well Y has it rougher so your point is invalid!"

    I may have read it that way, my apologies.

    Well y'all seem to think you're about 60 IQ above me when you Dead Hard for distance off of a generator, click your flashlight macro, and then jump into a locker with DS, so forgive me if I celebrate when I manage to down an ######### like that.

    I find it really amusing when i'm doing pretty well in a chase and because the killer finally manages to pull off one good play, they celebrate like crazy.

    Well it's to be expected. You've made them lose the match (ofc on basis that they decided to chase you) with your superior chase skills thus they're salty and want to get back at you. If it's annoying you that much, you can either go down early on purpose or improve at juking (losing the chase) so that once you've wasted enough of their time in chase you lose them and survive.

    It's the same as tunneling someone off early if they suck at chases, survivor gets salty for losing because they weren't able to evade or outchase the killer and take it personally. Both sides could take a chill pill if they lose insted of beiing sore losers, taking it out on the other side.

    Have you played during the insta blind days?

    I love it when killers do this. Knowing that I was such an annoyance to catch that they’ll throw the game to kill me is basically the biggest compliment I could receive. If I can get a long, fun chase I don’t even care if I escape most of the time.

    You have to see the funny side of it and not take it personally. That person is mad at you because you played better than average and made their game difficult.

    I wish I had more time as a killer to entertain chases but due to the nature of the game I can't afford to do that. I find chasing survivors my favourite activity but unfortunately I know I can not invest much time in that action.

    I need to protect my gens get my happiness helmets on people and try to get my hooks where I can.

    I have seen the frustration from the survivor that is doing extremely well in a chase as I abandoned them they normally show frustration in loud vaulting noise notifications.

    I'm sorry yes I was having fun but if I stay on you it's game over for me not personal or anything. I am hoping to keep things going longer so next time I can maybe give you more time in the chase.

    It's kinda sad for me as chases to me are extremely fun. Time is not a luxury killer has.


    BTW I enjoy those that show knowledge in the game make me learn and become better with my killer play.

    Some might even mean it as a compliment. Some nurses will nod if they down you after you mind gamed the hell out of them for like a couple gens for example.

    On the other hand I'll oink at a survivor as pig if they got downed after doing as otz would say "A big brain play" like deadhard into a wall or something.

    My point is I wouldn't take anything too seriously, you don't know the person really, try not to overthink it.

    Two bad behaviors doesn't equal a good one. That's what immaturity looks like.

  • VolfawottVolfawott Member Posts: 3,894

    The same thing goes to them they don't get immunity just because their Killers.

    I'm not going to pretend like I'm a saint and act like BMS doesn't annoy me whether I'm a survivor or a killer however it's usually a bit of annoyance during that match and then I move on.

    I really consider that there no need to message the killer / survivor afterwards or make a forum post about it.

    People bm it's annoying in the moment but that's it

    Relax, you'll get your selfie

  • Terra92Terra92 Member Posts: 583

    I don't bm. I find it incredibly worthless and I already suck at chases, why would I want to goad the killer into making my game a terrible experience?

  • ohheyitsbobcatohheyitsbobcat Member Posts: 1,282

    I agree they shouldn't take it personally but I also kind of love when they do. If I've led a killer around for a while and they facecamp me and BM then I've already won. I don't care if I die or they kill the rest of my team, they've lost and are straight up admitting it.

    And to OP: it annoys me sometimes but mostly I just roll my eyes or laugh. IMO, if you run a killer around for multiple gens and they shake their head at you or hit you on the hook, it just shows how insecure they are. Rather than take it personally, I just feel bad for them

  • Terra92Terra92 Member Posts: 583

    I don't take it personally, I just see it often and I'm wondering why they take it personally. Like my skill in the moment is some sort of offensive slur towards their own.

    Like I said, I suck at chases, so I know that when I do well, it's either some big brain moment or(more likely) the killer isn't great at chasing and I happen to be in a good chasing spot on the map.
