Fellow killer mains what do you see in a lobby that makes you no longer play nice.



  • UseTheValveUseTheValve Member Posts: 338

    Nothing but when i suspect it’s a sweat lord SWF, if i see that they mostly have 3k hours i just dodge and queue again. Killer queues be 2 seconds at night.

    Clan tags. If I see multiple people from the same gaming clan; I know it's a SWF and they are 99% of the time going to try to swat-team my butt. The gloves come off, in that case.

    I just bring starstruck and everyone behaves no matter what they bring, it's a really magical perk, if they got 3+ flashlights I'll stick a lightborn too, really helps swf chill out.

    Everyone's a gangsta till they got the exposed status.

    Given my experience since a break, there's literally no reason to ever play nice.

  • OldHunterLightOldHunterLight Member Posts: 2,975

    Honestly, 2 things make me not play nice.

    1. Map offerings with the exception of mcmillan maps or azarov.

    2. Last minute switch, if you do that in my lobby I will not give any kind of mercy nor care for your fun.

    Excessive clicking and t-bagging is really the only thing to make me taunt back or play rudely.

    I don't really like playing "nice" though. I have been kicked in the teeth by too many groups to ever want to take it easy again. I won't tunnel or camp, but if you were just unhooked and I can't find your savior, that's not my problem anymore.

    I have a tiered list of how much I am going to sweat based on what I see in the lobby:

    Bloody Cosmetics - I'd take the game a little more seriously, but I wouldn't really sweat.

    Bloody Quentin/Dwight - I'd actually start considering using powerful add-ons since no joke, these guys tend to be the best loopers in the game with the best game sense in the entire planet.

    Keys - Cracks knuckles

    Keys, Maps & Hatch Offerings - I'm going to just fully camp the person with the key. At that point I'm not really going to have fun, so why should the person who brings the key?

    Multiple Toolboxes - I'd be more focused on creating a 3-gen. The first two generators are basically free at this point so I wouldn't even try to defend them.

    Multiple Medkits - I'd change my playstyle. No need to hit someone if I could get a down instead. That goes for people trying to bodyblock during chase.

    Haddonfield Offerings - I just don't. I'm leaving the game AFK for a while. If they really want to win that badly, I'll just give them the win. But without the fun. The difference between this and Keys, Maps & Hatch Offerings is that with Haddonfield, God House and House of Pain is just... no.

    If I get the map randomly, I'd play it. But if someone brings me there, I just refuse.

    If I see more than one survivor in the lobby I lose my goddamn mind. No more Mr Nice Guy

  • TheMadCatTheMadCat Member Posts: 1,913

    If they have a name which is insulting, heinous, etc. I mean, I dodge, no matter what role I play.

    Outside of that... I play as usual. As I'm an inexperienced Killer, I feel nervous if I see paid cosmetic/old rift cosmetic, but it doesn't change the way I will lose.

    (Matchmaking is always rude to me, but having such good Survivors to go against started to teach me things instead of getting me upset.)

    last second switch to a key : i'll focus the key holder.

    If they also burn offerings that prove they are SWF with the key holder : i'll just turn into monsterloo and show no mercy.

    Happened yesterday : last second switch to key + offering for hatch + offering for luck + offering to Asarov... that last one as i was nice an burnt a cake, was the last drop ahah

    Key? = Franklins.

    2 or more flashlights? = Lightborn.

    Both served with complimentary NOED and a side order of Mori.

  • kate_best_girlkate_best_girl Member Posts: 2,153

    Only last minute switches or multiple flashlight P3 SWF lol

  • FrndlyChnswSalzmnFrndlyChnswSalzmn Member Posts: 705

    This man knows the perfect anti-######### play. Exposed status makes 'em act right, every time.

  • TruEternityTruEternity Member Posts: 284

    Nothing, I usually ready up once I’m in a lobby without looking at the survivors. Most likely I have a tab open watching YouTube or browsing some website, like these forums.

  • burt0rburt0r Member Posts: 2,493

    Normally nothing. I play for BP and action for the survivor anyways.

    I use the minute in the lobby (because there is ALWAYS one that does not ready up) to check profiles for swf. Not that I would change anything because of that.

    But a last second switcher or excessive attention whoring in game gets people on my ignore list. Inverted tunneling so to speak. I hope they have fun clicking their finger sore or sitting on gens but when I ignore them completely than their skill is irrelevant. Except I have bbq eauiped then I will maybe try to check how good they are to get my stack, if they are way better than me in looping then back to ignoring.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,586

    Mostly keys, but 6 second swapping to anything annoys the hell out of me. I dont even care WHAT you swapped in.

    As a survivor, if I'm put into a lobby with identical neon Nea's or a lobby with keys, and if I see killer after killer leave, then I quickly book it.

    A) Time wasted waiting for a killer

    B) I don't want to face such a killer who feels confident enough in their skill to face them, as it usually means extra sweaty/scummy plays, and solo queue is already hard enough

  • Nos37Nos37 Member Posts: 2,474

    If I'm spending Bloodpoints and then swapping to the survivor I had originally intended to play with, what time should I make the switch to not upset killers who react this way?

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,586

    Sooner than 6 seconds. People who do those last second swaps just send the message that they're trying to trick you at the lobby screen. Having your stuff in order well before that point is ideal. Swapping in at 20 seconds sends a whole different message than swapping in at 6. Being able to swap at all is kind of a survivor privilege since Killer selection gets locked in.

  • burt0rburt0r Member Posts: 2,493

    Yeah btw does anyone remember exactly when they put this switch lock in place again?

    I know it is in preparation of sbmmr and makes it easier to get data when killer and matched survivor are made to correlate but it feels like years now.

  • unluckycombounluckycombo Member Posts: 579

    For me, it's 4-Mans that all have the same cosmetics. I'll usually try to play nice and not tunnel people out of the game and such, but if all 4 people are running the exact same cosmetics, I can't tell you apart from your buds and I can't gurantee you won't suffer an accidental tunnel because of it.

    Idk man, if you guys all wanna be matching and stuff like that, that's cool and all, but if I can't tell people apart as Killer, it makes it 10× harder for me to play nice because it feels like I'm just smacking the same person over and over again all game.

  • ArialArial Member Posts: 131

    four survivors using the exact same cosmetics

  • Friendly_BlendetteFriendly_Blendette Member Posts: 2,356

    Sometimes I find matching but like they arent a SWF or toxic in any way like it is just 4 default megheads or if a new skin came out sometimes I see lobbies of 4 of that. Usually when its a mix of cosmetics from different sets then it is probably a SWF

  • Friendly_BlendetteFriendly_Blendette Member Posts: 2,356

    They should really make broken keys look different but they can also be really annoying with blood amber.

  • JacksonWiseJacksonWise Member Posts: 621

    It's a combination of things really. Keys don't bother me per se, the survivor may have an Archive challenge like "escape through the hatch". It's when there are one or multiple keys with a Haddonfield offering and the survivors are obviously very good, they just want an easy match or to bully the killer.

    Offensive names and last second switch to an item.
