Daily DBD Question #8

Most of us have a main in this game. And some of us have a story behind why we picked that character. So my question to you today is: Why did you pick to main the character you do now and if you were new to the game, do you think you would pick the same character as your main?

My Answer

I'm a Kate main and have been since 2020. My store is honestly super lame, but I picked Kate cuz Otzdarva said that she was the amount the quietest and shortest character in the game. And I was hella stealthy so she was perfect for me.

Would I have picked her if I were new to the game today? Probably not. I would probably be either a Felix or a Nea main. Why you may ask? I'm simping for Felix and my Nea skin is comfy.

    My main right now is Meg. Picked her first for sprint burst, pick her now cus she’s still the most beautiful survivor rn. I main Pyramid Head cus I’m a toxic tunneling ######### and I love that PH has built in tunneling mechanics.

    Oni because he go fast and snowballs and he has great cosmetics

    Steve for stranger things, but I switched to PC recently so I can’t get him, so I’m playing Dweet because I relate to being a socially awkward loser, Jake because I have the slightest resemblance to him, and Yun Jin because she’s cute

    Yui - I like her story and default outfit.

    If I were new to the game I would probably choose her again, because I like her character.

    Sooo I was watching a streamer casually play DBD, she was playing with one of her friends who was really good. Said friend was playing Feng Min in her pink bunny outfit. Two thoughts came to my mind: "this game looks fun" and "i also want to be a pink bunny".

    I got the game, turns out Feng Min isn't free, and her pink bunny cosmetic isn't free either. So I just choose the first free character that I like, Meg, and find a lobby. Everyone is either Dwight or Meg, but I want to be unique (and i don't like it when there's multiple people that are the same person, unless we're all the person bc it's fun in that case) so I picked Claudette, I was planning on playing her until I got enough shards for Feng Min, but then I reached lvl 50 on Claudette and prestiged her, losing all my perks like an idiot. Rather than play her without perks I played Jake and discovered the oh so sweet iron will, which made me realise how loud the others were so I didn't play anyone else but Jake for a long time and I've been maining him since. (I did eventually get Feng Min and do play her a lot but I like Jake more he's just a chill dude in the woods).

    Basically it was an accident. I was scared and he was quiet and had clothes that blend well in the environnement.

    Considering it was an accident, I would maybe not want to main him if I started playing today, however if I'd probably gravitate towards playing him again when I find out he has perks that make you quiet because I was a terrified baby survivor and Spine Chill, Kindred, Calm Spirit and Iron Will were my lifeline

    Huntress ( or most of the ranged killers) because they can hit over loops.

    That's an awesome story. I also planned to play Feng because that was the first character I ever played. But then I wanted to hide all game, so I picked Kate instead xd

    I'm a Bill main. I wasn't always a Bill main though. Probably with the first 6 months I was between Nea then Meg. Back when I started, I was the stealthy scared survivor who Urban Evaded when my premonition went off as Nea. I would use Urban evasion to avoid getting chased. I then evolved into being a meg main who would greed a gen with my spine chill going off and sprint burst away in the killer's face. After 6 months though, I started to play Bill. I always played altruistically and I liked the reputation that Bill would sacrifice his life for his friends/teammates. So that's why I main Bill, I usually will always go for the altruistic play and body block for my teammates. Sometimes I die because of it, but that's okay. I enjoy playing the loud old man. Probably I would still main Bill if I was a new player, but I might have chosen Felix because he has some cool skins. I would even main Jeff or Quentin if I wasn't already a Bill main.

    When I got into the game originally, I went with Claudette for one of the sappiest reasons: I wanted to help others and lift them up however I could and her perks were perfect for that! :> A thousand hours later and I switched to pc when I did nea for a bit thanks to her sick hoodie and I mained legion. Still do, mind you and now I main meg because of that mask and the outfit I have for her! I know it's highly improbable we'll get any legion outfits for survivors but it wouldn't hurt to dream. I've changed the pants one to zoey since it's grittier and fits better.

    for me, i technically got two mains that i play constantly,

    But now i believe i can say i got three official mains,

    Slinger, Doctor, and Mikey, Have been my mains for a hard while when i need a literal win / sweat match,

    (That and i'm also tired of looking at titles such as "Top 3 'Insert Main here' and not playing them correctly,' So of course i took that mantle up,)

    Whenever my game finally fuggin updates i'll post what they look like

    I main Ace because there's no real character I relate very strongly to, and I find Ace's larger-than-life, ridiculous personality and cosmetics funny and it matches my mostly casual, non-meta-perk-using playstyle. The closest to my actual personality/values might be Nea with her anti-establishment values, but I feel like she's just a skater-rebel stereotype, rather than a real activist for meaningful change for the better. If a vegan character/activist (non-stereotyped) would actually come out, I'd main them for sure.

    Trickster, but I main ranged in general. I just like the different playstyle you have with them since you have to loop differently and have good aim to be rewarded. It is a nice feeling landing your shots with any ranged killer. I main Trickster specifically because his power is fun for me to use, but I also like his story, cosmetics, lobby & chase theme, and his laugh. He has a very different personality from the rest of the cast that I enjoy playing with.

    I played Bill and Feng when I really started playing. Bill because he's Bill and Feng partly because she's Chinese, but also because she has the bunny fit.

    Now Id usually play Jeff or Jonathan skin Steve. Both are just cool characters.

    If I don't feel like looking for survivors I will fallback on the good, old reliable Doctor.

    Original main was Nancy, because I found this* game thanks to Stranger Things. While I still consider her one of my mains, I really dropped her, lol. Now I play more Cheryl, Jill, and Feng than anyone. Aesthetic reasons, really, and I'm a old timey Silent Hill / RE fan.

    Killer wise my first was Legion. Now it's a toss up between Pig and Legion. Legion goes zoom, and Pig is just fun, plus boops.

  • Kira4EvrKira4Evr Member Posts: 2,025

    It's funny, I was reading this in a survivor queue. And the killer I got was Freddy lmao

  • MarigoriaMarigoria Member Posts: 5,944

    Survivors: I started by being a Meg main because of her perks... then I mained Nea because I liked her alternative look.

    I main Quentin now and have done so since I watched the NoES remake some years ago. I think the remake isnt as bad as people make it out to be. I really like his character in the movie.

    Killers: I started by being a pig main because I've always been a SAW fan and I like her stealth ability. Then I switched to Freddy (still old, old Freddy) and again, his stealth was one of the things I liked the most about his power and I thought it was really unique.

    I still main these 2 now, just because it's what I'm used to.

  • Phantom_Phantom_ Member Posts: 425

    Survivors: I switch between Meg and Leon. Meg was the first survivor I played, because of her perks. And Leon because I'm a sucker for RE and him, also I just love using flashbangs 🤷

    Killers: Wraith because he is fast and everything in this game felt SO SLOW (mind you, I started playing this game after MGS Rising) 💀 and now I mostly main Nemi, because he is amazing at vaults/pallets and I love that he straight up punches survivors 😂

  • GreenDemoGreenDemo Member Posts: 256

    My first mains were doctor (because idk) and claudette (because blendette).

    Now I got ace p3 for the sweatier games (he's really quiet if you crouch injured), and am jumping from character to character. I wanted to main Steve because I did decide to get the jonathan skin, but idk. Maybe if I get better perks for him.

    What character would I choose if I started now...... Idk ^-^; Most likely stealthy peeps, like ace claudette zarina or adam.
