Survivors why won't you farm



  • miketheratguymiketheratguy Member Posts: 2,719

    I've only done it a few times and the players I did it with had a blast. I've also been in a couple of matches as survivor when the killer decided to farm and he helped us all earn something like 50 or 60 thousand BP because of the offering he brought. We loved it, we were all running around with him taking turns doing gens, trading hooks and heals, smacking him with pallets, etc. It was refreshing and rewarding, something different. Everyone had fun. I don't see why someone would jump to the conclusion that doing this should be bannable. If someone is clearly not trying to join in, no one can force them to do so. I mean if the killer wants to be friendly it's not as he can do anything to stop the survivor from completing their objectives and escaping like normal.

    I'm not saying that everyone should just drop what they're doing and join the farming whenever a killer seems like they're going for it, that's totally up to the individual player to decide. They should play the game however they like. If the occasional killer happens to make that easier for them it's hardly the end of the world. The amount of anger regarding this subject kind of surprises me. I mean I can't see myself loading into a match and being outraged and wanting to put my fist through the monitor because a Pig wants to boop the snoot or a Spirit hits me and then runs away to let me heal.

    I enjoy farming but yeah since getting out of low ranks I feel like killers only ever fake farming only to kill us all and just BM the whole time. Wish it wasn't like that. Farming is fun once in a while amidst all the tougher matches.

    I don't mind farming points, as long as its not match after match, when it's just basic earning points I'm not really interested. But double bps or cakes, I'm will accept the offer to farm from killer 🤣.

    I won’t turn down a chance to be silly, but that’s just me.

    With that being said: Some people don’t like farming and that’s okay, even the devs are against it. Not saying you’re doing this, but don’t force people to farm with you, that’s a way to get banned. You also have to make sure everyone’s in on the farming as well.

    Anyways. I’m sure once the anniversary comes around, people are gonna be farming like crazy.

    I won't farm, I'm there to play the game not just simulate pallet stuns etc.

  • JasixJasix Member Posts: 1,195

    I only really farm as killer if there is 2 DCs or people who kill themselves on first hook - as it seems unfair to continue a regular match at that point.

    Every now and then I will get a killer stop in my stream when I play survivor before hand and ask me to help with their challenge - which I oblige generally.

  • JaffycakeJaffycake Member Posts: 56

    because you're holding the game hostage and not playing properly. You should be banned for it imo. Either play the game or don't.

    Any farming killer I've come across I just sit on gens and leave, as as a lot of others have already stated, farming is boring AF and I'd sooner just move on so I can actually join a game with someone that actually wants to play and not screw around for memes/BP

  • Dennis_van_eijkDennis_van_eijk Member Posts: 1,512

    If you're on console then message them immediately so they can still skip the lobby if they don't want to.

    On pc I have no idea how to let them know.

    But farming is braindead boring af.

    I always skip those lobbies when the killer message me to farm.

    If they sent a message and immediately start the match so I can't leave then, we'll good luck cause I'm gonna slam those gens as fast as possible and get out.

    And big change the other 3 survivors will do the exact same.

    Just play the game normally and you'll get the perks you want.

    Okay, having read this, I've come to the conclusion that survivors just want a sweatmaster-5000 to play against instead of someone trying to be chill and have fun. Thanks for the feedback guys.

  • MandyTalkMandyTalk Administrator, Co-ordinator, BHVR Posts: 18,373

    I don't think it's about being chill, you can definitely have fun & chilled games without farming. It's about actually playing the game - farming is not playing the game.

    'people just want to play the game and have fun' where's that quote when people get frustrated about slugging, tunneling and camping?

  • NebulaNebula Member Posts: 471

    I’m curious, in what way do you think farming is fun?

  • tippy2k2tippy2k2 Member Posts: 3,026

    You're taking what everyone is saying and completely hyperboling it and blowing it out of proportion just because you're not getting the answer you want but you know what...

    Yeah, if my options are to waste 20 minutes of my life with boring farming gameplay or play 10 minutes against a sweatlord tryhard killer doing all they can to win, I'd 1000% take the sweatlord tryhard over farming

    There, now you have someone agreeing with you.

    Me personally…

    Farming is really, really boring. I’ve never enjoyed it in any game I’ve ever played. As long as I get enough points to safety pip, I’m out.

  • LumionestyLumionesty Member Posts: 98

    I typically get the same amount of points out of playing the game normally with BBQ as I do farming. Furthermore when I play the game normally I actually have a fun experience meanwhile farming is legit the most boring thing you could do and I fail to see how you consider it to be "chill and fun."

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 13,578

    People will play how they want.

    And if they can't do that (having a regular-gameplay Killer), then they'll at least avoid playing how they don't want to.

    Also, from their perspective, there's the potential of you trying to trick them.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 4,543

    Typical entitled survivor mains demanding the killer try and kill them. Your obsession with mindless violence is ruining this game.

  • JediWithASniperJediWithASniper Member Posts: 640

    I like facecamping Bubbas more than farmers.

  • PepsidotPepsidot Member Posts: 1,293

    Farming is really boring.

  • StarshadwStarshadw Member Posts: 266

    I often ask the same thing - and about Killers as well. Especially when I see them play a Party Streamer. Why on earth would you NOT try and farm points when one or more party streamers are in effect?

  • StarshadwStarshadw Member Posts: 266

    These are frankly, the best matches in my mind. I would much rather be silly, run around, get a lot of points, than go through a sweaty, toxic match that last 5 minutes or less.

  • VolczVolcz Member Posts: 645

    Because that's boring as hell and I want actual matches. I'm not queing up to 'farm BP' with the killer. I'm queing up cause I want to play the game. Also, I don't trust you (the killer) to not turn around at the end and slap me.

  • BjarioBjario Member Posts: 303

    Well, then chase them off the gens! More gameplay for everyone

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,600

    Because its so bloody boring

    I don't like friendly killers, it's boring. I start DBD to PLAY, I don't care about BP. I just do gens as quick as possible and leave. A friendly killer = wasted time.

  • Dennis_van_eijkDennis_van_eijk Member Posts: 1,512

    Everyone has their own way of having fun.

    And don't get me wrong here I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but the problem with farming is that they do it a lot.

    Meaning they get into ranks they are not ready for.

    For example say you play at lets say rank 13, you managed to find many people who want to farm (which there are) and you keep ranking up.

    Then all of a sudden you get people who don't want to farm and you decide to play normal then.

    You get little amount of hooks, stunned and looped a lot.

    Now if that happens to me (which happened more than I like), I don't have fun because you're not a challenge for me.

    I love the trill of the possibility to get downed, and if I know tiles well and you don't know how to counter it well, then it's gonna be a difficult match for you and pretty boring for me.

    And I'm very sure that it's not fun for you too.

    That is the biggest problem I have with farming.

    Cause as killer I don't want to bulldoze over the survivors and as survivor I don't want to run around the map without having to worry about going down.

  • Dennis_van_eijkDennis_van_eijk Member Posts: 1,512

    Very simple.

    I use every type of offering for bp that I have.

    If i use partystreamers doesn't mean I want to farm, I just want a few extra bp and a fun match instead of boringly trying to get the max BP possible.

    It's not something I play the game for, if I want to really farm I'll play some farming simulator.
