Remember when people use to play games for fun?

Its a game, it will never be perfect, it will throw crap your way and it will give you moments of laughter.

Lets stop fighting "Killer v Survivor" and start looking at everyone as people looking to have fun. The game is unbalanced and will never be perfect so move on and just enjoy the fun times.

If you focus on the bad that's all you'll ever see.

Just have fun! :p

    Wait, people played games for fun? That must have been before the internet.

    I agree but my point is towards how much effort people put into arguing they lose sight of having fun. Perhaps its not like this with everyone but I see a point in having passion for something and wanting to see it grow and flourish but also knowing when it rots to accept it as is, or move on.

    If this game wasn't so grindy, it would be a bit more fun. Survivor mains complain when they die since they lose points which is why some use decisive strike, sprint burst, self care, and adrenaline combo in order to try to survive longer. And killer mains want to get 4 kills every game so they use the BBQ and chili, ruin, nurses calling, and noed combo to try to get those kills. If the game was less grindy then people could try out new perks for fun instead of nasty combos to try to "win" and get the most bloodpoints out of each match.

    Competivness breeds arrogance in ones ability to preform well. Arrogance breeds egos, and when egos are on the line, people get nasty. It’s not about fun for them anymore, it’s about dominance. Many people often use video games as an outlet to feel “better than” others at something. Like a junkie, they need the thrill of not only victory, but of power by humiliating their opponent while hey win.

    Take pride in what you’re good at, but there’s no reason to rub it in your opponents face. Everyone’s better than someone else at something. Games are no exception.

    Take my most recent games. I’m playing at Rank 1 on Clown with garbage perks. I’m going to have a rough time against a 4 man SWF Loopers all decked with the meta perks. Getting tea bagged and [BAD WORD] all the time, like I care. If I gave a damn, I’d be using my Nurse. I’m just here to dick around on Clown.

    I still do. If a game stops being fun, I stop playing it.

    People used to play to progress and to have a good time... Now people play to show off to and to gain validity from strangers. As if there's anything tangible gained. Kids these days lol

    Just have fun? Pfft what do you think this is? A video game??

    I would allow the cheaters to have their coms IF they are removed from ranked where they are boosted by their cheating. Cheating to gain rank is an insult to all killers.

    Ask me why i am not playing but lurking here.

    Everytime I read this kind of stuff, it reminds me this.
    It's not like balance and fun are incompatible.

    I agree but far more often than not people do not debate changes but go to full on arguing, using vulgar speech or personal attacks. My point is if the game has devolved to that point for you and you are no longer having fun why spend so much time just playing for the sake of it. Your picture is also a great example of "trolling" that person isn't playing the game to get enjoyment but messing with the other guy for "fun". I think what you posted proves my point that a lot of people are missing the point of the game and making their own fun by screwing with others. You can argue that's still considered "fun" but it fun at the expense of the very thing you are meant to be enjoying.

    People just argue with emotions rather than actual and well-though opinions. As simple as that.
    How many threads there is going like "CAMPING IS UNFAIR BECAUSE I DIED ?" or "SURVIVORS ARE OP BECAUSE THEY CAN RUN" ? Most of them.

    That sounds dull. Easy wins are boring.

    Better than forced to play Nurse at Rank 1, at least on low rank you can play a variety of Killers instead of the main 3/4

    Games are about winning, not having fun. That's a thing of the past ; )

    It's difficult to have fun when some of the core game mechanics are frustrating.

    Thank you, I'm tired of people focusing on winning rather than enjoying their matches and having a great time.

    How can I have fun in a game where my opponents seem hellbent on making every game the worst experience in my life?
