I'm curious what do you see a win as killer/survivor

I want to know what people classify as a win as both a killer and survivors as many have difference ideas to what classifies as a win.

I personally feel like as a killer 1k is a loss, 2k is a draw and 3k to 4k is a win.

And as a survivor 1 escaping is a loss, two escaping is a draw and three or four of us escaping is a win.

    For me the only clear win condition for killer is a 4k, anything else can be heavily debated.

    For survivor there is a VERY clear win condition in surviving.

    As a solo survivor main 95% of the time:

    20k bps or more per match - enough to have done some significant gameplay and feel challenged yet have fun.

    Escape or die is no consequence to me unless there's a challenge for it.

    That's basically identity V standards of win/lose, that's how I take it.

    I don't count kills at all. You can have everybody on death hook and no kills. I don't think 8 hooks is a loss.

    I'd probably say 1-5 hooks is a loss for getting less than half off the objective done.

    6-8 a tie for getting half of a little more of the objective done

    9-12 a win. Any escapes by that point are by the skin of your teeth.

    This is also coming from a player that attempts to 3 hook everybody. If I played meaner I'd probably focus on kills more.

    As a individual i personally feel as long as i escape i win .

    I feel like it's a win if I was able to achieve something. The only thing I really rate as a loss is being so completely and utterly outmatched by the opposition that you can't do anything. For example if you encounter a good nurse as survivor or a decent swf as killer. There is just nothing you can do in these situations except accept the 4k/4 man escape of the other side and move on

    Usually just making the better play then the opponent. Sure it normally leads to 4ks. But its all about being smart and effecient

  • BingBongManBingBongMan Member Posts: 631

    It's funny that we even have to speculate what the win condition is for each side.

    If the devs just said something it could clear up a whole helluva lot of stats and statements.

    as a killer, getting 3+ kills.

    as a survivor, escaping. though dying and still making good points / pipping is usually considered a draw for me.

    of course there are some nieche scenarios for both sides, but those happen very rarely

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 3,173

    If I pip I win in my book even if I die. Escaping means nothing to me if I get enough BP honestly

    As for killer, 3k is a win, usually with pip and a bunch of BP as well.

    Some people will tell you having fun is a win, but in DBD fun is not something optional :)

    I agree with this as survivor. Even though it's a team game the whole winning part is my own escape, although I will try to get others out with me too if possible. I never use keys or moris though, don't like them at all.

  • CluelessClueless Member Posts: 246

    As Killer, 10 hooks+ or 3k+.

    As Survivor, 2 or more Survivors surviving.

    Alt win condition for both sides, getting a belly laugh out of a game.

  • ChurchofPigChurchofPig Member Posts: 2,121

    As killer?

    4k/3k (if hatch escape) - win

    3k/2k - tie

    1k/0k - loss

    As survivor

    Safety pip or better? - win

    lose a pip - loss

    They're different just because I'm so much better at killer that if they both went by pips I'd win every game as killer except on the occasion.

  • WazzupWazzup Member Posts: 88

    I completely ignore the pip system.

    So as a survivor I feel that a gate escape is a win, a hatch escape when the gates are opened is a good win, a standard hatch escape is a draw and a death is a loss.

    As a Killer 0 or 1K is a loss, 2K is a draw and 3 or 4K is a win.

  • Dilif69Dilif69 Member Posts: 125

    30k bp or 3k

  • Edgars_RavenEdgars_Raven Member Posts: 1,236

    7 + hooks, 3k or pip. Im happy with any of those

    Survivor i dont care. I just play. Whatever happens happens

  • Nos37Nos37 Member Posts: 2,135

    For me, a win is completing the match without freezing and crashing

  • WeederickWeederick Member Posts: 1,065

    Exit gates opened: Survivors win

    Exit gates closed: Killer wins

  • WexlerWendigoWexlerWendigo Member Posts: 1,867

    Escape for survivor and 3k for killer

  • van9684van9684 Member Posts: 433

    As survivor I just want a chance to play the game and get some blood points. It’s becoming almost impossible to do in solo play. I’m rank 5 right now and last night I lost 8 out of 10 games. One legion let me escape. The rest were try hard killers who slugged and camped/tunneled. Lots of devour hope too. It was extremely unfun, and map rng was awful too. Just a bad night. I consider that a complete loss.

  • EQWashuEQWashu Member, Mod Posts: 1,394

    For me its kind of the same for Killer and Survivor: if I enjoyed the match, if I felt I did a good job or did my best and learned how to improve my gameplay, I'd happily consider that a win. If its a killer I'm new with and learning, I may also consider a win condition to be a 1K (or at least a few hooks, especially depending on my loadout, the killer power, maps, etc)

    Did I have fun?

    Whoever gets the most points is the overall winner (can be the killer or one of the survivors.

    2 KIlls =Draw

    3 or 4 Kills =Killer Wins

    A survivor can escape and have a personal win, but if at least two others don't make it the team lost.

  • RenAmamiyaRenAmamiya Member Posts: 646

    Killer = 3k+hatch or 4k

    Survivor = finishing all gens and at least 1 survivor escaping through the gates. Doesn't have to be me.

  • UncleStabbyUncleStabby Member Posts: 837

    I got out of bed and found the strength to que up for killer. That's a win in my book.

    For survivors, I really just try to have fun.

  • gilgamergilgamer Member Posts: 1,811

    As killer if I got a 3k or more its a win for me, if I get a 2k its a draw and obviously 1k or less is a loss. For survivor it works mostly the same but I add that if I survive then that's a win for me but if I'm the only one to survive then its still a loss for my team. A key escape I just consider to be a waste of time and don't consider it a win or a loss on either sides.

  • Hektic3000Hektic3000 Member Posts: 631

    Killer: 3k with a hatch escape or 4k

    Survivor: Any match where i have fun.

  • Squirrel_ThiccSquirrel_Thicc Member Posts: 2,679

    Same as you for killer. 0-1k is a loss. 2k is a draw. 3-4k is a win. As survivor same applies, except if I'm the only one to escape I count that as a personal win and not a team win.
