Survivor insults and harassment toward killer should be BANNED

    Report and move on or close the chat? This is pretty normal in every single pvp game nowadays. I like the instant feedback report in league tho so maybe the devs should do that.

    You see it more often with one role than the other but I agree that both need to be accountable for this

    Why are you singling out survivors? Killers do it too.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    I already answered this two times :

    • I said no one deserves to be treated this way, including survivors
    • I said I am talking about the killer experience because I play killer the majority of my time but if you have something to share about the survivor experience you are welcome to do it.

    I said Victor was hungry because I was playing Twins. By the way in this game I did not tunneled only used Victor as bodyguard of the basement. But this strategy is already too much for them to handle and led to a mental breakdown when they wish cancer to strangers on the internet I guess.

    Tunneling is fun because it means you are always chasing. I don’t want to play a gen patrolling simulator. I would rather have a game where I am chasing for 90% of the time and get only 1 kill than a game where I am chasing for 40% of the time patrolling 60% of the time and get 4k.

    It seems that survivors that gen rush when a teamate is getting tunneled, wait for the whole end game collapse time at the gates for the killer to show up (I don’t ever show up, I break stuff instead) and then escape feel frustration and bitterness because they realize how boring it was to hold m1on a gen and not getting chased. DBD is about chasing / getting chase, so if you choose to hold m1 all game instead of saying hello to the killer it’s your choice, don’t unleash your frustration on the killer.

    You literally brought up survivors. How's that not a "what about survivors"? Or is it more like a "also" instead of a whatabout. If that makes sense?

    Sorry for the delay was busy, you clearly didn’t read my comment though lol

    This is the ultimate donowall, I truly witnessed something legendary on this day.

  • drsoontmdrsoontm Member Posts: 1,658

    Starstruck is my goto strategy (when I used to play).

    Works only at medium and low MMR as the high MMR "plays" are usually a spread of the gens done in parallel and no SWF worth a damn goes to a gen or a hook with the killer chasing.

    This is followed by a full bleed-out with the current oh-so-wise change of some survivor perk.

    In my gameplay experience survivors insults you if you camping or tunneling them otherwise they just type gg wp and left the lobby.

  • throwaway79465468797throwaway79465468797 Member Posts: 682

    I wouldn't shrug off an insult just because they said it one time. No one should be a punching bag for insults, because we are not punching bags. Do you want to be a punching bag?

  • JimbusCrimbusJimbusCrimbus Member Posts: 1,013

    All the "but killers do it too!" is nonsense. In my over 8000 hours, most of it survivor, I can count the amount of times I've been told monkaW things, or harassed by a killer on literally less than 2 hands.

    Survivors? I'd need 10,000 hands.

    The scale is way off balance and "but killers do it too" is a nonsensical argument. Period.

  • nicnc82nicnc82 Member Posts: 344

    I am so glad rhe devs hinted that they are working on more ways to punish the tunneling like this. It's low skilled play really.

  • SammehStormbornSammehStormborn Member Posts: 135

    Your play style is, even if you don’t want to admit it, inflammatory in itself. Many survivors don’t like that play style - you tunnelling means you’re playing... well. Especially on one of the two strongest killers (nurse). It also means you could chase someone else if you’re camping - something you say you’re playing for. No, it doesn’t give them the right to say the things they are saying in endgame chat - but you’re adding fuel to the fire and not helping the situation. You’re using endgame perks which means you’d probably get a couple kills regardless - you could camp at the end if you needed to, probably secure more kills with NOED.

    it’s also funny you say you don’t want to patrol gens, you don’t have to if you’re decent at finding and tracking survivors - if you aren’t, there’s enough aura reading perks to help you with that :)

    finally, you seem to be “poking the bear” in the screenshots you’ve posted. You say it’s affecting your mental health, but you respond until they say something really derogatory? Just don’t engage, especially when you can gauge from the first message or two they aren’t being chill.

    like others have said, don’t engage in the chat, close it and ignore it. It seems it isn’t serving any purpose, especially with the way you choose to play.

    if you do want to keep it up, and not find different ways of playing, then report and move on. But don’t keep adding fuel to the fire.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    They have never said that btw. They don’t like facecamping, but proxycamping and tunneling have never been a problem.

    It’s the opposite, the new dead man switch makes it way easier to tunnel. And tunneling is mandatory if you want to have a chance at high mmr because there is no way you can win a game doing 12 hooks while preventing them to do 5 gen against very good survivors. That’s 1 hook in less than half a gen against 4 survivors. It’s impossible. Anyone at high mmr knows that, killer or survivor.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408


    I don’t remember saying I was camping ? Camping is not smart if you want to tunnel because they will not rescue and smash gens instead. A good tunneler will make survivors believe he is chasing someone else so that a 3rd survivor will come for the rescue and only 1 survivor will be working on a gen.

    Now you are going to ask me, why don’t you commit to the chase instead of tunnel the person that was hooked ? Because let’s say you down that survivor and hook him, the other survivor that was saved in the first place will be healed and nowhere to be found (we are talking about good survivors here, they know how to hide and to counter BBQ). So you will have to chase another survivor (a third one) splitting your hooks on the team while gens are being worked on. And if the survivors have half a brain they will make it so everybody take turns being hook buying enough time to complete all 5 gen and get a 4 man escape. So to solve this problem, the easiest solution is so tunnel the first survivor (while pretending you are not tunneling so they rescue him fast) until he is dead and you are in a 1vs3 that is way more manageable.

    Why not injure multiple survivors instead and applying pressure so they stop working on gens ? Circle of healing allows survivors to heal themselves so no time is lost, and the rest of the team don’t have to stop working on gen, find the survivor and heal him.

    That’s why tunneling is the only consistent strategy to win. You may no like it, but it’s the meta at high mmr. Of course before skill based matchmaking, trials were so unbalanced you didn’t have to tunnel to win, and sure they are professional streamers playing 10 hours a day that can win without tunneling because they know the maps so well they could draw them with eyes closed with all the pallets and gen location but for everybody else it’s the most efficient strategy.

    Face camping doesn't exist anymore. It hasn't since back in the day.

    People call any camping face camping now. They would be incorrect.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    Still wishing death in DBD because I park Victor next to a hook.

  • CharlieChatBoxCharlieChatBox Member Posts: 258

    A lot of this thread feels like:

    • Killer does scummy tactic
    • Survivor responds with unjustified death threats
    • Killer is surprised and upset by said threats or pretends to be

    I don't think their reaction is appropriate, but I can see why they acted this way. I'm not sure why you're surprised.

  • YatolYatol Member Posts: 1,404

    Typical DBD community excusing its degeneracy by trying to shift the blame into impersonal behavior that is done solely to achieve a win.

  • HexDaddyissuesHexDaddyissues Member Posts: 327

    devils advocate here: i've gotten heinous messages from killers all because my team and i clean sweep with CoH and other less than favorite survivor perks. I agree, end chat is toxicity at its finest, but at the same time, if tunneling, camping and what have you are viable strategies, yall gotta realize Coh and DH are viable as well, albiet annoying.

    I say we just nuke the end chat all together. no toxicity if theres no chat.

  • MurgleïsMurgleïs Member Posts: 408

    Yep, I said nobody deserves to be treated that way, including survivors.

  • LucentLucent Member Posts: 209

    The game is toxic because BHVR is toxic. It won't change. If they wanted to do something about it then it would have happened a long time ago.

  • TheShapesMixtapeTheShapesMixtape Member Posts: 4,224

    I feel the same way dude. I would play with bots if i could but i cannot.

    Ultimately the situation comes down to three choices:

    • Block Communication (close endgame chat and private profile) and play optimally
    • "Play Fair", or realistically, play for others enjoyment at the expense of less in-game rewards.
    • Play how you want, open communication and enjoy the salt. The people that do this, i commend. I personally cannot because that stuff gets to me.

    I personally think endgame chat is an unfixable concept and should be deleted. The developers of VHS decided to delete theirs early in development because they realised it was a breeding ground for toxicity. You can hide endgame chat but if you are like me it's hard to resist opening it up every now and then. So it's not that realistic.

    I am of the mindset that you should blame the game, not the player.
