Why Survivors are not Using Cake Offerings?

I did not played killer so much for this event. I wanted use cakes on Leon before P3 him and i took all crowns on all survivors. Anyway now i am playing killer and on my matches i am seeing max 3 cakes (with my cake). Just why? You can use this cakes with only this event and time limited. Why survivors are not using cake offerings?

    You can use the event offerings whenever you want, they're not time limited. People are more than likely just saving them for actual worthwhile events like double bloodpoints.

    In my experience, a lack of cakes means survivors tend to DC if they decide they don't like the killer.

    Well, i saw some killers did not used cake too but on most of my survivor games killers used cake.

    Once again putting survivors and killers against each other...

    The question should say "people" not "survivors"

    Because in my experience, survivors and killers are using cakes the same amount.

  • Northener1907Northener1907 Member Posts: 3,012

    This is not killers and survivors against each other. Grind is so boring in this game. And event is limited with time. So i just wanna max points i can take. But when someone are not use cake, this is just annoying.

    I am putting all my BP into Killers for this event to stock up on cakes (already at over 250+ cakes across 5 Killers, 2 Killers have over 100 each). I have been playing a lot of Survivor and running WGLF to farm BP for my Killers so I simply don't have the abundant supply of cakes.

    With that said I don't mind playing Killer here and there

    Survivors get way less cakes than killers. During the event i leveled both survivor and killer from 1-50, on the survivor i got 10 cakes and on the killer like 60 or something. And tbh for solo survivors it's almost pointless to drop cakes when theres a DC almost every round and you just get destroyed in a 1v3.

    So yeah, the lack of cakes for survivors and the current DC situation make the event kinda mehh.

    Broken game? Saving for actuall bp event where they will get to use those? Or even lack of it in bloodweb as some players experienced

    A lot of this can be because less cakes appear on the survivor blood webs, probably as they have Event items as well. I've been in a few matches were survivors have used cake offerings but not many where all the players have one.

    I have just started backing out of games if I'm the killer and I'm the only one throwing a cake out.

    I get that cakes don't spawn as often for survivors but do you know what I do if I'm a survivor but didn't get a cake? Use BPS.

    I have tweaked all my builds to get rid of my "killing" perks (like Blood Warden) as I'm taking my foot off the gas in this event and trying to get everyone some wonderful points but if you're not going to do your part and make it worth my while, I can kill 20 seconds waiting for a new game and you can play Lobby Simulator again. I'll find (at least) one other survivor in another match quickly enough who is using a cake for everyone.

    It sucks that there are killers who are specifically going out of their way to ruin the event (not just playing normal, which I feel is absolutely understandable, but maliciously attempting to ruin the event for people) but unfortunately that's kind of the gamble you have to take in a multiplayer game. You can hold onto your cakes but I feel like you're running the same exact risk later (as we hear plenty of stories about people using BPS/Cakes outside of events and killers being jerks about it). Ultimately it is your call but you'll lose out on a "nice" killer during the event if no one is using their damn cakes.

    I'm just trying to get all the crowns, so I don't have cakes with every character. I use the best BP offerings I have though if it's not a cake.

  • tortradertortrader Member Posts: 510

    I am getting matches with three cakes average, and several with five cakes.

  • StarshadwStarshadw Member Posts: 266

    You know, this might be a big clue that perhaps the event items and the event cakes should be in different tables, so that survivors don't get screwed with regards to the number of cakes that show up.

  • HawkAyeTheNooHawkAyeTheNoo Member Posts: 726

    Got hundreds but wont use them, would rather discard them than use them. The less cakes the better the games.

  • SweetTerrorSweetTerror Member Posts: 2,263

    Yeah as many others have already stated, survivors get access to far less cakes then Killers thanks to all the event items they have to deal with. It would be nice to know if at least one node in every blood web was dedicated to cakes.

  • MadLordJackMadLordJack Member Posts: 8,816

    I'm not entirely sure how that's worth any more than using cakes now

    Ive been throwing cakes every game. First 2 days i saw 4-5 cakes.

    Now I'm seeing 2-3 (including mine) for both sides. It could be people did what they wanted to do and want to save cakes now.

    However I am now seeing longer queue times for killer. I couldn't even get into a match yesterday morning, but survivor was almost instant. I don't mind, but I get more BP consistently as killer.

  • Northener1907Northener1907 Member Posts: 3,012

    Unlucky game. I don't understand why people sweating so much if everyone wanna play normal.

  • Freddy96Freddy96 Member Posts: 619

    Cuz killers sweat their butts to get 4k when the difference between 8 hooks and 12 hooks is minimal so survivors are most likely to use cakes while on full swf

  • Freddy96Freddy96 Member Posts: 619

    Survivors are not bringing cakes, that's so rude...

  • th3th3 Member Posts: 1,639

    The spawn rate is so atrocious and it eats up all the bp I do get just trying to get through a single web.

    Had no issues last year using my cakes, this year they are just so damned sparse.

  • KingFrostKingFrost Member Posts: 3,014

    Because I don't feel like giving the killer 200k bloodpoints when they inevitably camp me. I feel bad for the killers who don't do that -- but the ones who do (and it's way more frequent during this event than during normal play) are ruining it for them.

  • oxygenoxygen Member Posts: 2,619

    I'd say the average amount of cakes I see no matter what I play is somewhere around 3, which is pretty solid.

    Survivors have a harder time running cakes constantly as they have more event quality items competing with them in event nodes in the bloodweb. Especially if we assume they're doing level 50 bloodwebs.

  • tippy2k2tippy2k2 Member Posts: 2,194

    I 50/50 (and with the Fourth of July weekend giving me plenty of time to play during the day when killer queues are nutter butters and survivor queues are instant, it's probably more 80/20 survivor side right now) so I am well aware of the pain that is getting the damn cakes for the survivor side.

    In those instances though, I use BPS or something of that nature. If you've got nothing, you've got nothing but my post was more to people who were flat out refusing to use their cakes rather than survivors who literally have nothing they can offer up.

    No point wasting cakes when people are DCing for anything now that the penalty is disabled. I'll throw them out when the penalty is back again.
