Survivors have zero respect for the killer

And no I don't mean it as a "Wahh they are so mean! they tick the flashlight and teabag!".

I mean they have zero fear, zero worries, you're literally aproaching them wtih the intention of killing them and they won't care. You can approach them while they are doing a gen and they will just laugh it off and keep doing it, specially if they are about to finish it, after all, why would they even worry when they can just use one of the 9999 pallets near them if you hit them or if you hook them someone will just unhook them.

Killers are as scary and threatening in the game as a flower. Hell Survivors will even keep doing gens with no worries even while having deep wounds.

    This is why I main Pyramid Head.

    He's actually scary and oppressive, especially with stealth perks.

    That one Steve who I drew smiley faces with using Phead must be pretty mad right now

    Depend on the killer.

    Against your average team I agree but his entire being is hardcore countered by pre-dropping pallets and holding W and it's really sad.

    There's literally nothing to be scared of outside your first 20 hours or so. It's a video game, and not a particularly scary one.

    I am way more scared of the survivor player who DC's or suicides on the hook for no reason than the killer. This has been happening so much more than it ever has which makes the game unplayable for the most part.

    It's almost like after a while you get desensitized to things...

  • skkkskkk Member Posts: 1

    It's because this is real life. There is no reason to be afraid of killers after you play for a long time. You are not scary because you are not the actual killer, you're just a person playing a video game so they have no reason to be afraid of you.

    Jump scares will always make you jump, that's still a bit scary. There are no uber dark maps with little no vision, no close quarter maps, killers have a terror radius also. Game could be a little scarier, maybe more tense instead of fear.

    I’m sorry, but it’s just commitment.

    If I’m about to finish a gen in three seconds and the Killer is approaching, I don’t mind sacrificing a hook state to get it done.

    Nothing against the Killer at all.

    It’s just me and the stubbornness that can get me killed sometimes.

  • ZixologyZixology Member Posts: 1,062

    And I get told the same by killers when I decide to play survivor. What's your point?

  • lassfroobynoolassfroobynoo Member Posts: 56

    It's literally just a game to survivors. Like you're actually just a person playing a game, you have no actual power over anyone lol why would they be scared? They're gonna play just like you are. The way to make them "scared" in game is to apply as much pressure as possible. If you can't do that in the game then just try and get better. Most times survivors don't feel threatened it's because you're a weaker killer (like trickster or legion) or you haven't really given them a reason to be scared all game. Maybe baby survivors will be scared, but there's really no reason to be scared and you don't need to scare them to kill them. Just play the game and get over this weird power role fantasy you got going on

    Yep its true, even with a ghostface that is devour hoping everyone they just t-bag, clicky clicky with flashlight etc. But well atleast if you are playing with a top tier killer you can give them what they deserve 😜

    But it also have to do with the fact that this is a game not real life and if you played it for thousand of hours you wont even blink when the killer is coming. So they do all that stuff to not getting bored after playing over and over the same game.

    Still there are some stealth killers that can give you a little jumpscare in some maps, and thats immersive.

    Respect is earned, not given.

    If you don't pose a major threat, why should I be scared?

    If you are slaughtering me and my allies, producing massive amounts of pressure, hell yeah I'm playing the game differently.

  • ExcessumCamenaExcessumCamena Member Posts: 11

    The real killers are the friends we made along the way.

  • MoundshroudMoundshroud Member Posts: 4,460

    Respect isn't a given; it must be earned. If you enter a game and find the Survivors don't respect you, it is your honor to teach them the error of their ways. My favorite Survivor pull is a Bully Squad. These guys do not respect Killers at all. They come into the game with one win condition, i.e. to make the Killer quit. Pulling one is like my birthday and Samuin all rolled into one. I get to teach them the meaning of the word respect.

    If you don't have the chops yet to instill respect, use your matches to cut your teeth and get where you need to be.

    I mean, its just a game. Now this is coming from someone who plays both killer and survivor (and I've been playing killer more lately). When survivors know they can juke you and outplay you and mind game you pretty easily while busting gens like their's no tomorrow, then they aren't going to be scared. After all, we're just humans playing the role of a frictional killer. There is nothing to be scared off. Its not the killer, its the person playing the killer. I experience this a lot with red rank swf's. Instead of expecting survivors to fear you, outplay them, outsmart them, and beat them at their game to annoy them and make them DC like the champs they are. But sadly, this is easier said then done. But it takes lots of practice to do this, and I haven't gotten there just yet.

    since when is it disrespectful to finish a generator in front of a killer's face? lmfao

    our objective is to LEAVE, not prance around pallets and feed u downs every 10 seconds.

    god i thought i heard it all until this post

  • MinibeastyMinibeasty Member Posts: 52

    This really. I doubt a toxic player playing survivor will stop being toxic just because he/she switched to playing killer. Generally there are only two kinds of people, good ones and bad ones.

  • oliviaaoliviaa Member Posts: 102

    this is so dramatic please

    no one is obligated to 'respect' a virtual killer (whatever that is supposed to mean). and those bully squads u talking ab are just insanely coordinated swfs. yall have destroyed the meaning of 'bully squads' and it shows
