Why is everyone being so toxic to people playing Trickster?



  • Warcrafter4Warcrafter4 Member Posts: 2,917

    Being honest trickster is so bad he's the first killer I genuinely feel bad for going against as survivor given just how awful he is.

    I mean I have been in more danger as a survivor against brand new player trying nurses for the first time then against Trickster.

    Also I never understood how people can brag about beating the WORST character in a game.

    I mean people solely use dan in Street fighter AS AN INSULT TO THEIR OPPONENT because he's meant to the objective worst character.

    Gotta be honest,

    It's a bit annoying to get BM'd by survivors that you usually easily 4k

    I only played about 6 games against him but everyone on PC was just talking about how trash the actual killer is, not the player. Including the killer players themselves.

    Well you would be wrong. Clean games, I never said anything to them in chat, literally just played Trickster and often lossed handily. Nothing more. The worst offense was camping after the gates were open if I had someone, other than that no tunnel, no camp, and a weak build.

    But yeah, if you keep bullying, being toxic, insulting, harassing, threatening people, yeah that is what happens, you suck all the good nature out of them.

    For me I get over it relatively quick, but others you might just have another killer who doesn't play by your rulebook anymore ever. It only does for me for like a game or two.

    For real though, yeah lol.

    One person said they hoped I would die of cancer, because I got one kill due to blood warden, not even noed just blood warden. The level of toxicity has been mind boggling.

    When a killer's weakness is just holding W you know there is something wrong.

    That's what happened to me I hate the fact they wished my parents dead.

    The unnerving part has come from reading a couple of topics of discussion where people state they find him okay to play, only to be berated by others saying they're wrong or demanding video, as well as calling them liars.

    I mean, that's completely unbelievable how some people are! I don't often see people demanding proof people get consistent 4ks and such. It's saddening proof that it's not about whether you are a killer or survivor whoch makes you toxic, but moreso how much of a dick that person is.

    I tried giving him a chance but honestly I think I'm just going to drop playing him until he gets some buffs down the road. I can't even muster up the energy to level him up either. Most of my games are just frustrating. Frustrating to use his power, frustrating chases and a lot of frustrating people to go up against. People constantly sabotaging hooks in my face, body blocking, flashlight clicking, teabagging and the occassional ggez and whatever other insults they come up with post game. Normally I wouldn't mind these things but the entire Trickster experience has just built up to be a giant miserable pile of pain since release. I gotta drop playing as him, for the sake of my own sanity. I might be a masochist but there's such a thing of pain without benfit, Trickster is just pain and nothing else.

    So far, I either get people that understand he's rough to play, or people that somehow think he's OP and insult me for playing a broken killer. I just laugh it off cuz they got beat by Dan Hibiki.

    Maybe those survivors faced face camping bubbas that are toxic in end game chat before being matched against you...

    I am playing survivor as well, and I guarantee you I am not bullying, toxic , insulting etc. But actually many killers do that to me. Doesn’t mean I have to get to their level though.

  • pyramid_manpyramid_man Member Posts: 1

    I have no issues playing the new killer. I use him to apply as much pressure i can in a match. And if ik imma get caught up in a really annoying chase then I'll just bounce around looking for other survivors. But i do want his speed to be 115%

    It’s natural for humans to take advantage of and gang up on someone weaker. Same thing happens when you play hag.

  • Friendly_BlendetteFriendly_Blendette Member Posts: 2,903

    For some reason I just become a complete toxic ######### whenever I play survivor and trickster and baby nurses are the only killers i am good enough to bully. Yeah I normally try not to be toxic but something about survivor just makes me an #########. Another reason why I should stick to being a killer main I guess.

  • AVoiceOfReasonAVoiceOfReason Member Posts: 2,688

    Its easy to bully him because as a survivor, YOU KNOW you can EASILY beat him. That's why. In a game where its YOU vs. THEM, a weakness is still a weakness. Does the killer treat you nicely if they're starting to lose and no one is dead? No, they'll tunnel you out of the game because that's the best way to win. Same with Survivors. You give them an easy target and they'll ######### on them. Welcome to DBD :D

    Maybe because they are used to see facecamper Trickster players like me, and they are fed up with it :D

    Becayse really, no other way of playing him.

    This isn't a post regarding Trickster, but toxic behaviour in general - admittedly I have never seen much of it, but did today to its full effect.

    To provide context, I am a Rank 4 survivor - I'm not the greatest, but I like to think I am fairly good at this game and know how it works fairly well. Played a game with my mate today and two other random survivors. None of us escaped, we got 4 gens done. I had a bang average game I would say - did a gen, rescued someone, resulted in a safety pip. But the level of abuse I got afterwards was insane. Somehow the team 'losing' was all my fault (it wasn't, IMO - and I'm the first to hold my hands up when I have a bad game), I was insulted for my supposed sh*t performance and being R4 (IMO Rank isn't all that important, but when its coming from two players who were Ranks 9 and 11...), insults thrown at me because I didn't find the hatch and the killer knew where I was, and one vaguely racist insult (despite them not knowing my ethnicity).

    It was just one of those games, I performed bang average and we didn't perform well as a team - you move on. But the level of insults is insane. Why attack a fellow player, and why take it to such extremes. Pardon my language, but its f*cking pathetic. Its a computer game at the end of the day!

    I've got a thick skin, but such behaviour is so pathetic. I just wish there was a way to report toxic behaviour as it really can spoil a good game.

    That said - my thanks and appreciation to all of you out there who make this game a pleasurable experience.

    that's why I feel survivors started the whole toxic thing first I mean it toxic on both side but as someone who plays both side I use to give hatch farm as killer sometime have fun and as survivor I had killer do this for me.

    now tho killers are alot more sweaty and toxic even if someone dc when there 5 gen still will still hook everyone if he can not give hatch

    me playing killer I stilll give hatch farm sometimes but most of the time I play to win if I can

    in other words killers have had it.
