    I don't want to assume the worst of the killer you faced, so maybe they just went AFK at the hook to take care of their pet or go to the toilet or something, and then came back to see that you had DC'ed, then thought he made you salty by chasing and hooking you.
    But some people are incredibly desperate for kills (at the cost of both their and your enjoyment), or maybe after the chase they thought you were too good to be caught again so they wanted to take you out quickly.

    I'm kinda confused though, how did he tunnel you if he camped you? People who get camped are 9 times out of 10 going to die on that first camped hook.

    i got unhooked he hit the person unhooking me and went after me i was able to get to a pallet nearby

    Camping isnt fun.

    Usually killers camp if they cant have fun in the game or if they want to make survivors suffer.
    Really hard to tell what was going on in the match, but I assume somone looped him or sth and he was just sick of that. There are only very few killers that camp because they like that "playstyle".

    One thing you need to be aware of. If you dont follow the "killers codex", then they might see no reason to follow your "survivor codex" :wink:

    no the game had just started and he decided to go after me and didnt want to leave i hate killers like that because i cant climb back down to low ranks.

    killers camp for 1 reason and you probably wont like it. its because in high ranked matches or any game really the amount of hooks a person can endure is too much therefore one of the best strategy is camping survivor until hook phase 2 to ensure they dont become altruistic when rescued yeah its no fun but it is required to win against sfws

    im a solo surv and i almost never see swf

    Almost every game has at least one SWF group now. :wink:

    recorrect your statement to PC. on xbox there isnt a SWF around every corner

    the guy literally messaged me saying "Lol papa myers making kids salty" after the game because i just dced after he tunneled me after me being camped and because of his lag i was teleporting and he caught me.

    Why am I not surprised.
    Stop throwing in random terms. If he camped you, then you woudnt have get tunneled, you would have died on the first hook. Then another classic lagg excuse and the classic ragequit in the end.

    it was actual lag i literally teleported from one spot to another one that was more than 5 ft away also heres for the other part> @TheLegendDyl4n1 said:

    let me just state when i mean why you camp i mean why do you camp when i 1) have not done anything to deserve it 2) the game started not only 1 minute before i was the first person you found 3) i ran you around for maybe 1 minute with no gens popping and i didnt teabag or have a flashlight.

    most people are talking about camping with gens done i understand if you camp and only one gen is left or the exit gates are open or certain other situations.

    I don't need a reason to camp, if I feel like it I feel like it.

    If you don't like the fact that ur being camped just ######### on the hook and move to the next game.

    Camping is an allowed strategy according to the developers. As much as it's boring to do, sometimes it helps the Killer win.

  • TreblucFayleTreblucFayle Member Posts: 73

    This post is the primary reason people camp "without reason". They want to see you upset about it. They're trolls, and posts like this make them feel justified.

    I am 100% certain that if people stopped complaining about camping it wouldn't be as big of an issue.

    I'm not trying to say it's not a problem for the game, because it is. It sucks the fun out of the game. But it IS a valid strategy for killers who want to just get kills, and the game is built to allow it. But camping always favors the other survivors. They will probably all get out if the 1st person caught is camped. Unless they feed the camper.

    And I'm not saying to, "just ignore it" either. Just don't keep posting about it every time it happens. Add to the existing discussions instead. And try to be constructive instead of just flaming killers. The constant threads popping up about camping (or punishing campers) is just making more people want to camp. They love the salt and think it's funny.

    The Devs know people hate camping, and they will do what they can. But unfortunately there is no way to "fix" camping.

    Dear Survivor mains, camping is just as much unfun to Killers as it is to you, but thanks to how fast gens are done, how little time Killers have and how overly altruistic you guys tend to be, it often pays off.
    Maybe gens get done fast because the killer is too busy camping to put pressure on the survivors?

    Go watch rank 1 streamers play killer. Notice how they're too busy chasing someone every second to be camping. You don't need to camp/tunnel to win games. There's a mental barrier around purple ranks that people struggle with in this mindset.

    Camping is basically a killer saying "well you guys are too tough for me, I'm done, I'm just gonna get this guarenteed kill instead".
    And depip. Thank you for your input, meaningless but enjoyable. As Doc said sometimes pay offs so much because you guys are overly altruistic and that's true. When you see they tend to do Instagram unhooks its obvious he stick around

    Just get better at hiding. After they hit you few seconds pass for cleaning the weapon. Usually I hide in that time and I'm just done. I still don't get it now you struggle against killers before reaching red ranks

    Even then stealth beats almost all of them.
    "Guaranteed kill" like it would give 6k bp if hada good long chase then depip and get 1 kill out of 4.Just be less altruistic and you'll survive a lot more. Save it you're 100% sure he is in a chase or away. That's it, wow so complicated I know

    You could always do what your teammates did and just not get hooked in the first place.

    If you're tunneled, find a loop.

    If your hooked, you didn't play well enough.

    Easy as that.

    please... I get campers every other match and my survivor rank is like 12

    I keep hearing excuse after excuse... .
    "It's only in low ranks."
    "It's only in high ranks."
    "You must have deserved it."
    "Their last match was probably awful."

    I get it... there are SOME legit reasons to camp, even though as a rank 10 killer I've ONLY camped because someone was trolling their own team OR teabagging. 

    please stop making excuses for these trash players.

    If someone teabags you shouldn't camp, its a bad mindset. I used to have it back when I was an average killer (myers) trust me stop that habit it ruins ur games since they just do gens.

    there's a difference between those who teabag to distract and catch your attention, and those who do it to celebrate a minor victory like stunning you. 

    I won't waste my time on distractions, but you're going to strut around all cocky over 2s stun... I'm going to make sure you get a reminder about who runs the game.

    i find that i usually am the first one found since i actually work on generators and not running around looking for chests or totems so when im the only one on a gen it becomes a problem. and i usually do loop them but sometimes like my first game of the day im not so good and dont survive

    This is just reason enough to end the argument. If it's not against the rules, deal with it. As good old bricky says, killers don't have to follow any made up code of honor. Either because the context of the game seems to make it pay off or you just freaking want to, Killers shouldn't excuse themselves for this. Same us it's pointless asking survivors why they do one gen after the other.

    Ffs, it's a two sided multiplayer game. One side is not "responsible" for the other's "fun". It's up to oneself.

    A killer will only camp if there bad, or it's late game.

    I don't believe anyone ever camps for no reason. 

    A while ago, I watched a YouTube video offering tips on killer.
    One such tip was to never let the first person you hook live. 
    The line of thinking is a little sound. 
    1 less person doing gens. Anyone doing a rescue isn't doing gens and can get caught, and maybe killed. That means even fewer doing gens later.
    That means no immediate gen rush, and that means less people doing gens later.

    Of course the counter to this is just do gens, or gen rush, pop 2, or 3. Apply pressure on the killer to leave the hook. Rescue just before struggling.

    Of course, depending on the time spent hooking the first person, that could mean 4, or even 5 gens are done.
    Last gen gets done, then there's basically no way the killer will leave the hook.

    This leads to the gates being open. Gates done means who ever is on the hook is going to get secures.

    So, obviously the make sure the first hook dies tactic can backfire, and the video I watched didn't cover it backfiring. 

    Of course there the idea of altruism, and bait. Lure in several survivors, knock down more than the 1 originally had.

    And chaos. I can't count how many times I watched the yellow auras go into panic mode once I got hooked. Neither rescue, totems, or gens were being done.

    If you run around a killer too much, or make yourself known to be dangerous in a chase by killing their time, they may prioritize you leaving the game. The nail that sticks up too much gets hammered down first. 

    Of course there's just people that do it to make others mad, etc.

    Tl:dr the reasons are many, and vary as much as killers. Trying to make sense of it is kinda folly.

    There are no rules genius. Killer's do not have to abide by the Non-existent "Survivor Rule-book". IF you got hooked, you got hooked. Learn from your mistakes so you don't get hooked next time.

    i stated in the post "WHY do you camp" not "Stop camping because its against the rules" meaning people who argue that this post should be taken down because i said camping was against the rules are FALSE because i never said that. i asked why do you do it like what are reasons for camping and because you want to is a good option i was asking why not that anyone is wrong.

    I do not personally do it but I would put it down to simply they are bad. Sick of trying for 4k games so they end up just going for at least a 1k. Or, they run into hook jumping teams so know that instead of going hunting, the Survivors will just come to them. Simple as that imo.

    i will not have done anything to deserve it like teabaggin or flashlight clicking but you still camp me when im the first one found and 5 gens are still needing to be done. i want to have fun and get bloodpoints but neither of us get alot if you sit thier and camp me on no gens done. this causes you to get gen rushed and everyone else escapes because you decided camping was a great idea so please explain why you sit thier right next to me and ignoring other people except you pull them off and drop them

    Camping Critera:
    1: Are there any gens left?
    2: Did BBQ locate anyone?
    3: Did 3 survivors bodyblock and attempt flashlight save?
    4: Basement hook?
    5: Am I playing Leatherface, Huntress, Trapper, or Hag?
    6: Was this survivor being toxic and do I have a Mori?
    7: Was this guy in a locker?
    8: Did this survivor have DS, Deadhard, and Adrenaline?

    Under these conditions I typically camp or patrol really heavily it also depends if I have to do a Sac daily, typically killers don't camp unless the survivors did something (gen rush, bodyblock, flashlight save/pallet stun).

    I always camp with Michael. I run scratched mirror, with M&A. I'm all the way up in the red ranks, you'd be surprised hoh many people just come running in to save just to get screwed over. Oh and I also run PWYF+STBFL on him. Be as hyper altruistic you want to be. Either way you're making me stronger by letting me build up tokens just standing there, while the rest of the team try to run and save etc.
  • CrowSCrowS Member Posts: 67

    Also, what people call "Camping" is all over the damn place. Some consider EVER checking the hook to be Camping.

    I like to take a loop, just to the edge of my terror radius, and circle back from another angle. I almost ALWAYS catch the unhook in the middle, and immediately down the "saved" survivor. 2nd Hook & 2nd Stage coming right up!!!

    Then I chase the "savior", and double back to the first victim. They die, and I'm getting back to the 2nd player right in time for them to be "saved", too ...

    Lol.
