Give me a good reason to continue to playing this event

This event is ######### especially as Killer. All it is just Survivors bringing cakes and then sweating their asses off. I don’t like playing that way. It’s not fun at all. I’ve already gotten Nemesis to P3 50 with good perks and add-ons so I don’t have anyone I want to prestige. What is there to stop me from not playing while this shitshow is going on or trying to derank?

    When things are particularly sweaty or i feel im trying to hard, i throw on blood warden, noed, stbfl, bbq on fred and just forget about the gens. Focus on juggeling 2 then whatever happens happens. Rare i dont get at least 2. Its a mire chill way to play

    Unlike some of the others, this even hardly provides fun by itself. It is useful if you have a character or two to level up, but if that is not the case then there is very little reason for you to keep playing it.

    Keep playing, especially if you are actually getting people who use cakes, and use those bonus bloodpoints you otherwise would not have gotten to keep grabbing cakes as Nemesis. Only don't use your cakes. Save them so that you have easy double bloodpoints to level a future killer faster!

    Nah, if you aren't having fun, best to just chill. This event is basically only for log ins, which are already done, and bloodpoints.

    I know it's crazy but both sides are gonna try their best to win. PvP games are always gonna be competitive especially when rank play is the only solo queue option.

    Im a killer main but have been playing both sides during the event, both sides are equally awful, getting face camped to second stage or death hook to survivors bringing badham and BMing their asses off. Neither side is making this event enjoyable.

    Just don't play.You don't need the Game to tell you to play it, you either want or don't want. If things go south then stop your play session, do something else. I had the exact same thing happening to me, 5 Cake game and dumbasses just gen rushed me to the point i had Tinkerer going off in 3 different gens when i was at 2 hooks. I asked them why do they do that if there's 5 cakes in the match? They answered bro you're playing Ghostface, you're gonna get genrushed, i wouldn't if you weren't gen rushing but sure now it's my killer choice that's the problem.... I guess they were happy with measily 100k points when we could all get 250k plus if they just let me play too. It's the same thing as Gen Rushing on PTB's... why? You don't get anything from PTB's why are you ending the matches ASAP?

    I can only conclude people don't like playing DbD that long, they want quick EZ wins and that's it. Thank God i used Steams Summer Sale to get some games i can use my time on cause playing DbD is just frustrating no matter how manny chances i give the game.

    I just play regular as usual and assumed everyone else did as well. I don’t think I can turn on the juice like Bane and get better at the game. Maybe all the top tier players who don’t usually play as much, are on more often- grinding the event. I imagine to them, they’re playing like they normally would.

    1 good reason? Uhhh

    I got nothing

    If you're not having fun just stop playing. It's that simple. You're not obligated to keep playing this game no matter the circumstances, nor do you need to make a post for us to tell you if you should keep playing or not.

    It's never been this bad though. Usually it's a mix of chill and sweats (and even then they aren't that sweaty). This time it's just a bunch of players sweating hard.

    I'm not asking for people to stop trying to win and I understand that PvP games are competitive, but I wish they didn't play like it was some kind of tournament or there's a big prize on the line.

    I never thought about that. They probably don't think they're playing differently.

    The only possible reason I can think of for playing like that on a PTB is to see how the new content works with their playstyles.

    if there is nothing left you want to level up, there is no reason to play.

    idk, maybe stockpiling cakes for the future?

    I can not understand! should cakes make me play to lose? Should I get hooked by the killer to get him to score points? Should I make a survivor flee to score points? but why don't you think about playing instead of writing bullshit?

    Cakes enough said, if it's to sweaty depip n chill with the bp bonuses

  • dspaceman20dspaceman20 Member Posts: 4,265

    I think the reason why survivors are sweaty is because of the crowns. All killers have to do to unlock their crown is to find one and play the game. Survivors have to find one and escape meaning they are going to play sweaty in order to escape and unlock it.

    Can't escape to unlock the crowns, Switch performance is stuttery and laggy so I go down quick in a chase, 95% of the time when I attempt to throw down a pallet nothing happens. God forbid I burn a cake, then I get tunneled out first thing with fewer than 4k points at base.

    I wish I didn't want to unlock the crowns or level up any characters, I'd prefer to just not play at all right now. But this Switch account is new, I have nothing in terms of cosmetics and perks. :(

    The crowns need some other requirement than escaping, something reasonable. If I survive to escape, I can't find a crown. If I find a crown, the killer can spot me from across the map and I don't survive to escape. It's frustrating as hell.

    I think that only covers part of it because I'm also seeing licensed Survivors and Survivors already wearing a crown play that way.

    I think bringing back the style of older events (Scorching Summer BBQ, Lunar New Year 2018, Hallowed Blight, Moonrise) could be a good idea.
