What made you fall in love with your main?

    Wraith because he was my first killer back when in 2017 when he sucked and at one point I switched to Amanda but, than I went back to Wraith love his playstyle and I love sneaking up and scaring survivors as him plus he scares me a lot when I end up vsing him

    What makes me love legion is sometimes you can be constantly on the move injured survivors one by one.

    Billy was because of his map pressure while having the ability to Instadown someone when in the right hands. I'm sad they changed his base kit. The base kit never needed to be changed.

    As for survivor, I started out not knowing about teachable perks so I picked Ace cause I thought he looked cool. A year into the game's release on console I had Ace prestige one and noticed he was a rare main so I enjoyed the fact I had a rare prestige.

    Spirit's design, and the power to secretly leave your body. I've wanted a power like this for awhile.

    Pig: The ability to kill Survivors through what is essentially a minigame

  • LooneyLooney Member Posts: 16

    Feng has been my main since I started the game (I bought her dlc with the game) because I loved her design and someone told me she's one of the best starter survivors which she honestly is. I also main

    Yui because her lore is so good and her design as a badass motorcyclist is so cool.

    I also main huntress cause I love her playstyle and her hum is nice to hear as you progress the game.

    I enjoy catching nice and young ladies in rusty bear traps in the wild forest ... so maining the Trapper was something natural for me

    Blight, ever since I discovered LilithOmen and the crazy flicks and techs you can pull off with him, Blight has a high skill cap and every time you pull off something with him you feel rewarded. It's also so good to finally have a main that can run non-meta perks and still destroy teams unlike my former main Wraith. Wraith feels kinda sluggish when cloaking and uncloaking, with Blight you can just ZOOM

    Ace because he smiles and wears sunglasses even though he's stuck in basically hell. Also because he isn't quite as noisy as some of the other survivors

    I don't really have a main killer, but I do like having zombies as Nemesis which is something I've wanted for a long time. Too bad they're super dumb and you can't really do much with them

    Let's do that chronologically :

    Firt I didn't main any surv, I didn't like anyone of them, but I imagine I did main Meg, because I had Sprint Burst and Adrenaline basekit (I didn't want to spend too much BP in other surv, in the beginning, Sprint Burst/ Lightweight/ Adrenaline /Kindred was all I needed)

    Then came the Silent Hill Chapter, I loved the PH them so I immediately bought the chapter, and tried Cheryl.

    Who has a fabulous voice imo. And since this chapter, I main her, and I even bought Cybil Bennett, who is my actual main. She's a badass woman (daymn she rides a freakin chopper), I like that, plus her style is uncommon in DbD !

    And killers.... I mained Nurse. I suffered. A lot. XD starting the game by wanting at all costs to master her. I'm a pure lover of hard gameplay, a real masochistic player. I love Doom Eternal in Ultra nightmare, I love Ultrakill, I love StarCraft 2, .... That's my passion, eating good and (maybe too ?) hard games in my face.

    That was an absolute error, but now I main her like hell, and, as I said, I love PH theme, so I'm playing him sometimes when I want chill games !

    Survivor: Meg. To be fair, when I started playing, there were only 4 survivors, and Meg is the first I unlocked all the perks on. Right now I've added Cheryl and Felix to the mix where I have 3 survivors I can play pretty much whatever I want.

    Killer: Doctor, he was the first killer to truly change the looping mechanics(you could argue Nurse, but there wasnt really any looping mechanics against Omega Nurse, just hail mary's). Myers ended up being my second killer to main, purely because he is one of the few killers with mechanics that will actually (jump)scare people. It's quite fun to see someone run into the corner of a wall because they threw their mouse away after a spook. Doesnt happen too often, but it's absolute gold when it does.

  • CornHubCornHub Member Posts: 1,864

    Oni, Felix, & David because I think they're the coolest characters design & lore wise

  • lolololollolololol Member Posts: 106

    Fell in love with doc because I could find survivors with ease on any map with out having to aimlessly look around since I can’t see scratch marks very well, but since they finally added color blind mood I can branch out a bit. But doc will always be my number 1.

  • Lochnload_exeLochnload_exe Member Posts: 1,252

    The killer that got me into the game was Freddy's release, and I loved playing him. Took some time to get good but I learned quick how to play him good and that he didn't play like other killers. The only one I've found that is close to him now is wraith. I also main Leon, I used to main ace because pilot cosmetic but Leon is my one and only until I get a native American rep

  • JacksonWiseJacksonWise Member Posts: 621

    For survivor, I main Jeff.

    He's a metal head like me and I love that the metal head community has some representation in this game. He's also described as a gentle, caring dude despite that he may not look it at first. I, and I'm sure other lovers of heavy music, find this VERY relatable. Needless to say, I love all of his cosmetics too.

    For Killer, I main Oni.

    I pretty much love everything about him. His lore is cool, his aesthetic and cosmetics are easily my favorite, and his power is really strong. Whenever I lose as him, I always feel like it's because of a mistake I made and that I could have played better.

    Going back to his cosmetic look, can I just say how awesome it is how he changes when he transforms? The glowing parts of his body, the different horns and other parts that grow? It really makes his outfits feel that much more special and worth the money. :D

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 3,651

    Looks, voice and in case of killers, the nature and mechanics of their power

  • PhasmamainPhasmamain Member Posts: 9,415

    Oni’s rift set might be the best cosmetic in the game honestly. I really wish more people played him

    Amanda (Pig)

    Massive Saw fan and Amanda is my favourite character so yeah no brainer

    Feng Min

    I've dealt with similar issues that she has:

    Family not believing in your passions.

    Becoming the black sheep of the family for pursuing your dream.

    Pushing yourself way too much to try to impress people.

    Spiralling into a bit of a sownward spiral when you feel like you disappoint people.

    Honestly I read her back story and I was immediately like a vibe with you so hard. ( It's not the best backstory out there. It's still somewhat clunky which is why I really want them to give her a tome but I still vibe)

    She was also the first survivor we got lore wise that was pretty selfish with her interactions in the Entity's realm a lone wolf that didn't really didn't care that much about the other survivors

    (Unlike Yun Jin she's not the type to step on people to get ahead. However she's definitely the type to see other survivors as lower priority in comparison to what she's doing)

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 7,098

    As a killer, it was my pre-existing love for Freddy and how unique he was when compared to the rest of the roaster.

    As survivor...it is hard to say. I don't know what made me main Claudette for a very long time, but I am thankful for it. She was an amazing character, always there for my survivor trials.

  • ThatOneDemoPlayerThatOneDemoPlayer Member Posts: 3,982

    Killer: Been a fan of Stranger Things so maining Demo was a no brainer for me, but Blight is a close second

    Survivor: Steve, just look at this man's hair

    Oni. I thought his design was sick and wanted to main him based on that alone.

    Good thing he's fun to play as well. :P

    As for Survivor: Leon because RE 4 is epic.

  • lmaoolivialmaoolivia Member Posts: 6

    For survivor I main Steve and Yui. Steve just cause I love stranger things and think the scoops ahoy outfit is so good. Yui because shes super cool and strong.

    For killer I love Oni. Cursed Legacy is by far the best original chapter imo. Both Yui and Oni have great lore and I love the way they look. Oni also has AWESOME chase music that I never get sick of.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 21,675

    I mained Nurse back in the day because I liked the playstyle (predicting survivors' movements through terrain, having to be precise with blinks) and the fact that she's the only killer that instills fear on every survivor (at least until they get their wish and the most unique killer in the game gets nerfed into the ground).

    I mained Jake because of his perks.

    I main Felix now because he's hot.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 4,519

    I guess blight is my mainest main 

    It's because I pretty much always have fun, I can lose but if I've got some spicy rush hits in I'm satisfied.

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 2,236

    Ace: That smile. That damn smile.

    Myers: I just like spookin' folks.

  • Jade_MerrydownJade_Merrydown Member Posts: 5

    Survivor, 100% Nea, started playing as her for survivor right at the start, I love her lore and I adore her design and lore. Also her perks are super fun imo

    Killer, I'm currently a Huntress main, her backstory and visuals drew me in and then the play style kept me I'm actually making a coseplay of her at the moment!

    Another killer I love is The Pig, I love Amanda from the Saw films so it's kind of a no brainer for me.

  • MilesMiles Member Posts: 455

    Wraith. As a fan of stealth games something about playing a stealth killer felt suiting. Being invisible sounds cool, the "Bell warning the incoming danger" gimmick is also great, his backstory was rather tragic and his look seemed nice.

    No, im not a freddy main who swithed to wraith, i have been playing him during the time wraith players prayed for buffs.

  • TerrorUnleashedTerrorUnleashed Member Posts: 497

    He runs fast.

    And the other one electrocutes people.

    And the last one is just plain garbage.

  • dweetmaindweetmain Member Posts: 50

    Dwight for the relatable character and Jane for her attitude and thicc.

    Clown cause the look wraith for the fun

  • PureDoctorMainPureDoctorMain Member Posts: 341

    I main Doc, no surprise there I imagine. I was originally going to be a ph main but I didn't wanna use money that week so when the game came on game pass it came with quite a few killers so I decided why not build up some bp so I can level the character I like the most. And when I played I played a couple games as wraith first ( pre buff) and didn't like him. Did the same with trapper didn't like him a lot. Saw hag as just trapper but again and said no. Didn't touch nurse or billy and that left doc. When I tried him something just immediately clicked. I like this character I thought. There was just something about him that just made me think this is it this is my main. The first time I blocked a survivor from dropping a pallet and just going through and smacking them gave me a type of rush like I'd never felt before. For the first time since playing the game I thought " HAHAHA I AM IN CONTROL NOW". The power to stop a survivor from doing things and slowing the game down to where I could run around and do stuff as I saw fit, absolutely mind blowing. Plus I was never the type of guy to be sneaky so the idea of making your tr bigger for a better effect really appealed to me. It really helped shape the type of player I am to this day. It helped that when I did the pallet thing Doc laughed at the same time I did. Made that moment all the sweater.
