What is Satisfying in DBD?

MaxFiGuyMaxFiGuy Member Posts: 56

I want to know what anyone gets a good feeling out of in DBD. What is satisfying to you? What is something you really like and would want to achieve in a trial? Do you want to get max bloodpoints each time you play? Are you a survivor that likes to keep the killer's attention in a chase while your team can work on other things? Do you like to sneak up on a survivor and make them not know what hit them? Do you repair generators like it's your day job? Do you like kicking a generator to keep those pesky survivors within The Entity's arena? What do you enjoy doing? What is your main source of fun in DBD? It can be that cheeky feeling when the killer can't find you. It can be the success you feel when you sacrifice a survivor.

What is your goal in a game? What do you want to accomplish in a game? What is a win to YOU?

    I enjoy face camping survivors who think they're cute.

    Injuring and Downing a survivor in seconds as trickster, especially if they vault a window.

    Being able to Crow a survivor and injure them in one crow flight send off.

    Trapper when he works.

    Stunning a Spirit out of phasing.

    Gen grabs, just in general these days.

    Don't know.

    But that might also be one reason why i, despite playing this game since release, have still only 297 hours in it and stopped playing it after the mentality of many players got more competitive since implementation of SBMMR but the hoped for according balance changes didn't happen in the first 7-8 months after that and as an result the game became even less fun.

    • Getting a Flashlight or Flashbang save.
    • Long-range Huntress hit.
    • Really long chases as a survivor.
    • Perfect Nurse blinks.
    • When survivors run into my stupid bear trap placements.
    • Double hits as Pyramid Head.

    Just to name a few xd

    Big chains with Legion.

    Swiftly hitting 6 knives as trickster and then perfectly predicting when the survivor runs around a corner to hit the 7th one.

    Or if the 7th one is from long range.

    So satisfying

    Yknow there are a lot of things

    Hitting a double hit as Artist...

    Hitting a nasty curve as Billy...

    Hitting 12 knives in a row as Trickster and mowing a Survivor down...

    Looping a killer for several gens only for them to have a deep look into your soul while youre on the hook...

    But there is nothing that gives me more serotonin than making a Trapper stepping in his own trap..

    Honerable mention: kicking the ######### out of Victor

    Using both bottles to hit a cocky survivor at a loop as clown

  • drsoontmdrsoontm Member Posts: 2,388

    The most hilarious games are playing Trapper. Nothing to do with winning but with how many times a survivor gets trapped in a funny way. The T-bagger or frenzied clicker who feels safe behind his pallet while the killer simply stands only to see him runs five meters to step into a trap. It's comedy cold.

    Long range hatchet crunch noises.

    Managing to self-unhook and survive.

    Hiding in plain sight next to the killer.

    Mind gaming a survivor on a loop and as they round the corner straight into you, donking them in the face with Plague's censer so hard they flip over backwards. Most satisfying M1 in the game imo.

    Victor pounces

    Pyramidheads Final Judgment

  • Plsfix369Plsfix369 Member Posts: 481

    4k Slugging with Hag.

    NOED triggers, NWO starts ticking, then gets the final hook on someone as Bloodwarden secures the kill.

    Game, Set, Match.

    Crow Snipes

    Picking up survivors as Sadako

    Destroying annoying clicky flashy attention seekers

    Actually do a decent chase as survivor for a change

    Smacking down survivors right before they get to their pallets/windows

    Bear trap triggers as Trapper

    Acutal decent Teammates

    Succesfull mindgames

    Going tier 3 right in a survivors' face as Mikey and then giving them the stabberino

    Sadako's pickup animation...wait did i already mention that one? :D

    I main Killer so it almost hurts to have to type this, but as a survivor:

    Spawning into the map directly in front of a Hex Totem.

    As killer:

    Trabby traps in unusual places that still catch people (kind of a bet; 'if I were a survivor, where would I go and not expect a trap').

    "Cosplaying" as Mr. X when I'm Nemo and the map is RPD. Bonus points for a surv catching on and playing along.

    Zombies actually being useful and injuring+downing a survivor.

    Hatchet hits across the map as Huntress (I suck at the whole hatchet throwing thing so when I hit someone at shack from main-boat on the swamp map I did a big happy dance).

    A survivor going for the boop the snoot without hesitation. They get the boop. And they get five seconds to scurry off.

    As survivor:

    Somehow getting a rescue with facecamping Bubba (/other insta-down killer - It's usually a Bubba though).

    All three swarming out to find NOED, getting NOED, going for the rescue & 4E.

    Ridiculous-hatchet-throw practising Huntress. - Not always a fan of farming and stuff but a huntress throwing a match to practise some insane shots makes me want to throw too and play the role of target.

    Seeing a sky/space Billy in the flesh (RIP T-T you will be missed T-T)

    Now. Most of those have meme-character. The one thing I consistently enjoy in "a standard match" is confusing a killer with the insane reset speed courtesy of a really good med-kit, We'll make it, Botany and Desperate Measures. And there's an extra level of satisfaction when it happens right under the killer's nose.

    Seeing new cosmetics in the store 🤑

  • CarrowCarrow Member Posts: 500

    The most satisfying thing that I can think of is 3 random SoloQ survivors working together to save the fourth person trapped in the basement with everyone getting out. It's incredibly rare, but man does it feel good!

    The second most satisfying thing is 4k-ing a bully squad.

  • ViskodViskod Member Posts: 828

    Any activation of Blood Warden.

    Getting the Mori prompt on a survivor downed in the exit gate that was just barely not close enough to crawl out.

    Harpooning injured survivors in the exit gate as Deathslinger.

    When an injured and infected survivor is downed by an Exit Gate Zombie.

    Hitting people with Flashlights while using Franklin's Demise.

  • ViskodViskod Member Posts: 828

    I was going to list off some more Nemesis zombie scenarios but basically anytime your Zombies have hilarious RNG and end up working out for you.

    Nothing like seeing someone status on the UI go from Injured to Dying because of a Zombie.

  • Zeon_99Zeon_99 Member Posts: 384

    Getting the Legion 5 hit down in the very beginning of the game. Just insane pressure right out of the gate and people usually DC now so its even more satisfying.

  • ViskodViskod Member Posts: 828

    After the patch came out my second or third match as Legion where I was going to get a down from a start of the match Frenzy, I lunged at the last survivor I had just hit and I missed and went into my cooldown and thought "did they just do a 180 Dead Hard backwards through me?"

    Turned around, nowhere to be seen.

    Oh wait. They disconnected.

    Coming back from a snowball

    Awesome endgame plays

    Photo bomb ghost face when he's taking a selfie with his mori animation.

    Getting a long snipe as huntress due to me being mediocre.
