Is annoying as hell to deal with as killer
The only time I ever see bodyblocking as annoying is when the person with Borrowed Time is blocking me from chasing their savior. You're just asking to be hooked again.
Otherwise it's just a free hit & I usually don't mind.
What do you mean? The fun is in the challenge, and taking a calculated risk to protect your teammates is the heart and soul of the game. I'm not sure I follow your logic.
Running behind someone isn't a challenge you're literally just annoying the killer, how is that calculated at all
It's either being altruistic or trolling literally all a survivor can do to protect their teammate is take the hit.
Wait. What's wrong with taking a Protection Hit?
It's literally one of the ways to get tokens for We're Gonna Live Forever.
My save the best for last addiction thanks the person willing to take a hit with bt.
Bodyblocking's just great teamwork, when it's done right.
Lol yeah. I always have a hard time running STBFL because I can never resist hitting the obsession even with 8 stacks.
If they are running "behind" you they are not body blocking. The Killer is faster than Survivors. Let's get something straight. Your job is to kill as many Survivors as you can. They are your objective. The Survivors get points for getting out alive, and to do that they need one another. Begrudging them one of the ways they can take protection hits shows you to be a very poor sport.
I'm not saying it's like cheating or anything I'm just saying it's annoying af you're the one trying to be victim
The only thing I have against body blocking is when the gates are open, everyone else is at full health and I am trying to secure my only kill. Granted at that point I already lost but I hate how the survivors complain about me tunneling when it is impossible to down someone else before they get out.
I've yet to see someone body block a chainsaw.
That's what made me make the post in the first place, got bodyblocked by 2 full health survivors guarding 1 injured, it's so annoying and I don't wanna pick instadown killers all the time just to get them out the way
Depends on how you look at it. To me it is a free hit; and I never look a gift horse in the mouth. Chances are, if they are trying to body block there are a couple of things going on:
I'm not arguing just for the sake of argument. I'm just trying to understand why body blocking would bother you. The only time it is lose/lose is situation #1 I list above. And let's be honest, if you are in situation #1 above, you have pretty much already lost the game. Every other time it is a win/win for the Killer.
You must never play killer because it usually happens all the time regardless.
I play killer all the time, it is rare for someone to jump in to a chase to take aggro, unless that person is on their last hook, but usually even then they don't unless you're tunneling the f out of someone. Taking a hit at the exit gates is common, but if that's what this guy is annoyed with yeah its annoying but who would expect them to do anything else?
Try and unlock mad grit. Nothing is funnier then downing the other three survivors all thinking they are going to sabo the hook. Then still hooking cause they have essentially frozen the struggle timer.
If they are bodyblocking they are not on gens. Noed at end of game. If its out of the blue its probably their looper, hit him if u can or ignore him and tunnel the F out of your original target for having D bag teammates. It will annoy them alot more than the bodblock annoys you.
I only see bodyblocking during EGC. Sign of a good/smart survivor.
This only usually happens when you're tunneling so yeah, stop tunneling.
" it is rare for someone to jump in to a chase to take aggro"
You're lying through your teeth or you don't have experience.
When I run STBFL I will throw games to keep stacks.
It's even more annoying to deal with as Survivor.
Heaven forbid survivors try to help their teammates.
I have, lol. Im just like... you didnt think this one through did ya...
CHAINSAW GO VROOOOOM
I am neither lying nor do I lack experience, you're a testy one aren't you? Chill out
It's a play. It's frustrating you because they are probably doing it at very good times because there is a matchmaking/ranking/skill difference and you probably shouldn't have been paired in the first place. You'll have to just learn to deal with that kinda thing.
It's one tool in the survivors arsenal to use against you. You can use it against them too, catch someone in a corner as an instant down killer or plague or something and RIP them.
Once you get better; it becomes less and less of an issue. If you are really having a hard time try taking agitation or mad grit or something for a while.
Yeah That makes sense if a killer is getting stomped why not screw with them i guess.
What? It's not about screwing with the killer it's about protecting your teammates.
If they are not protecting anyone then just hit them and take the free hit that is helping you out?
Body-blocking is a legitimate strategy. If you don’t like it, toughen up buttercup.
It's like a killer tunneling or camping during EGC. It's the only smart play really and the opposing side has no right to complain.
