Why are you playing killer?

EtsuharaEtsuhara Member Posts: 52

Is it for the challenge or for the power role fantasy?

Maybe you'r just a slasher/horror fan and like to get immersed. 

Personally its all of the above.

How about you guys?

    I'm a horror addict, and I've honestly always identified more with the killers in movies like that. I'm always cheering for the bad guys to win. Chucky and Michael were my heroes as a kid.

    Becuase I stream the killer side. I probably would of quit the game otherwise.

    LOVE Chucky, I have a Childs play marathon every halloween. Would love to see him in the game someday.

    I like the challenge and I like my 60k-80k BP a match. I'm also a big horror fan so that helps.

    Because survivor gets boring after a while.

    I find it more fun then survivor sometimes. And personally find it less infuriating then Solo Q although that could be changing

    I like the role play.

    Sometimes I like to be dominant, the one who decides what happens.

    If I have bad games as a Survivor I switch for a match or two.

    But yeah... it's not fun when I don't feel in charge but it's a different story 🙂

    I don't play killer much anymore.

    However I use to because killer is what brought me to the game. Also the licences of myers, bubba etc. Was just so exciting and amazing I just wanted to play as them

    Sadly I don't enjoy killer as much anymore, and I'm just put off the game alot by the lack of content I see. I see a small few killers and all survivors tun the same perks etc. But that's another issue

    BHVR killed the fun. Not me playing it for a job.

    They've added broken boons without a care. Nerfed a lot of killers that were once enjoyable to play. Doubled down on making just terrible disgusting maps.

    It's more of I'm the only thing to blame if things don't go the way I had planned (yea.... I'm talking from the gaming perspective)

    I do like Horror and Slasher movies... but that isn't the reason I stuck with the game for 2-3 years

    I like the stress and the micromanagement of the role. I like having the responsibility all on me, instead of on 4 people, and it makes me feel like my losses were my fault but also my victories were entirely me, too. I like that feeling.

    Also survivor is a ######### hellscape and I despise it so I play solo for about 3 matches and then either play killer or beg a friend to come on.

    I simply find it fun.

    I know, not a shred of objective truth or anything in saying that. But it really is as simple as that, when I spend time playing killer it leaves me thinking "That was fun, I'm happy I spent my time doing that".

    I like to smash people with my kanabo

    I like the difficulty of it. I do play both sides, but with killer the role can be much more challenging.

    The only complaint is playing killer had been, for some time, like playing the good guy. It feels like the person who was beaten and left for dead is going back for revenge against a group of bandits, Clint Eastwood-style. I'd prefer it to feel like the role it's meant to be.

  • EtsuharaEtsuhara Member Posts: 52

    Haha ,When i come across toxic survivours I usually picture them as gremlins.

    Nothing more satisfying than a microwaved gremlin.

    Just like I imagine the potato I give hatch as Gizmo. xD

    As a killer main i just find playing killer more fun then survivor idk about bp i just want to smack every survivor in the back of the head lol

  • BwstedBwsted Member Posts: 2,674

    Because I'm not masochistic enough to play soloq.

  • hailxsatanxeveryxdayhailxsatanxeveryxday Member Posts: 328

    I never played Billy personally, but he used to be an absolute terror to go against. Other hand, Michael's recent buffs bumped him up quite a few more rungs than people like Otz are giving him credit for.

    What don't you like about the new maps? I hated the changes to Coldwind and Gideon's, but they've been doing better more recently. A lot of people complain than RPD is too survivor-sided, but I still always get excited when I see it pop up. Aesthetically, it's great, and it's a hell of a lot of fun to play on. The newest map is also a lot of fun to look at (like something from a New Orleans cemetery - I wondered when we'd get a cemetery map), and I seem to 4K most of my games on it.

    I played Killer because going on chases with Survivors is fun.

    I'm not playing the game anymore.

  • SunsetSherbetSunsetSherbet Member Posts: 1,292

    I don't anymore. I used to because it was fun.

  • Lochnload_exeLochnload_exe Member Posts: 1,252

    I've put way more practice and time in killer than I have with survivor. As killer I'm in control and I have fun. As survivor I usually play solo queue and it is self explanatory. I don't like feeling like nothing i do in a match will matter because the feng thinks doing boons instead of gens is how we win.

  • Tr1nityTr1nity Member Posts: 4,848

    I want to poke the survivors with a sharp object.

  • adam1233467adam1233467 Member Posts: 422

    How I am gonna play killer if my dbd is uninstalled??

  • AdjathaAdjatha Member Posts: 1,011

    Played killer to enjoy using my favorite horror icons and played survivor to play with friends.

    All my survivor friends quit because the survivor game was so repetitive, easy, and boring.

    Quit playing killer after this newest wave of killer nerfs, ignoring hit bugs, and the endless stream of survivor buffs.

    The latest Developers Notes did nothing to assure me that anything was going to be changing, so I'm still firmly checked out.

    Yeah, I'm reporting this forum to FBI tips.
