So much negativity in this post! Cheer up!
Ok, think about this:
Tomorrow Imagine that you are main killer (I don´t know, maybe you are) and you want to play, for example, Pig. Its event, a lot of survivors are on coms with their friends, you get one of this Squads, 4 Dead Hards + 4 DS + 4 Unbreakables + 1 COH + 1 BT + 1 Sabotage + 1 Boil Over (Classic Premade).
They rush you, lets say in 5-6 mins and you can manage to Make maybe 6 hooks (I am being generous and thinking that you can abuse SWF altruism). If everyone dropped a cake you will get with luck .... 50-60k BP, something you can earn a normal day dodging this kind of players or having a several stomach problem just in the moment you start the game against that swf (Wink, Wink)
Are you going to drop cakes for being stomped and give free BP to that group of people abusing you? I dont know you, but not in my case, I will take the BP and move on, farm some cakes and keep it for me.
Unless you are playing on SWF, dropping cakes is a waste of time and bloodpoints during events. Killers are going to suffer for a low reward and SoloQ players will suffer more than killer for even less rewards, so sorry, But IMo is not worth to drop cakes.
How about... NO
I felt this
Cakes, Blood rush and the upcoming overhauled prestige system will just lessen by a really smol amount the grind this game has. It seems like a huge amount but if you think about how 1m BP doesn't even bring 1 Character from Level 1 to Level 50 it's just awful und demotivating. So those people who hoard those kind of offerings just want the illusion they lessened the grind. Don't hate the player hate the game.
Moris still do something?
yep, it will be painful.
Absolutely not, I'm not giving Nurse mains a single more extra BP than absolutely necessary.
I do tend to use them, but only when I've stock piled them as survivor. In previous years the cakes were really rare in the bloodweb and as a solo q, sometimes I'd be the only one in the lobby burning them and absolutely get tunneled out of the match. lol
What magical time are you waiting for where this will not be the case?
This was especially infuriating when Moris were available after first hook, it was one of the main reasons I stopped burning BPS and anniversary cakes as Survivor.
I'm almost affraid to bring a cake because when I do, the survivors will finish the gens in roughly 3 minutes, teabag me in the gates before escaping with 10k BP each and then proceed spending the extra BP on their next Brand New Parts so they can repeat this very engaging gameplay in the next game.
I will never understand to be honest. Once I realized that BP offerings don't only turn a great BP game into a fantastic BP game, but they also turn a meh (think like 10-14k) BP game into a decent or better BP game depending on the amount of them, I no longer really cared about maximizing points while using such offerings. No matter what, I'm getting at least double BP gain efficiency, while some weirdomax people go out of their way to play more "anti-BP gain" the more cakes they see the majority of the time the match would've gone the same way no matter if there's 0 cakes or 5 cakes anyway, with the exception of a lot of cakes increasing the odds of straight up farming being initiated.
I'll save them. Eventually, there will come a time when I'll need a lot of bps fast and since we can't stockpile bps, it's pointless to burn cakes now when I know I'll need them later
If I am playing with friends and guarantee a replacement? Yeah, definitely. If I am playing killer and basically just have to fart once during the game to get a replacement cake? Sure. If I am playing solo survivor with the risk of being facecamped and getting 500% of 5k and not even being able to replace that cake with a new one? No thanks, I rather save it for when I play with friends.
The way I see it its not about my BP gains which for me mean little, I have the characters I want maxed out right now Im putting BPs on Killers I unlocked with shards because they were laying around and I didnt have their useless perks, its about not giving a BP increase to someone who will behave like a [insert bad word here] out of spite because thats how most games go during events, especially when they see BPS or cakes.
I would burn every single aniversary BP offering if it only affected my side, either as Killer or Survivor but burning a 106% BP increase only for some chumps to suicide on first hook or DC to screw the offering or some animal to facecamp because "lol they wasted their offerings while Ill benefit from them tee-hee"... nah, as I said, Id rather destroy them than giving trolls bigger reasons to troll.
Burned once, twice shy.
Me and my friends call this "The Curse of The Bloody Party Streamers". If a survivor brings BPS they will be the first to be found and tunneled/camped out of the game immediately. That player will not get more than 5k BP in the round.
Doesn't this happen every third time a killer can get a 4K? Lots of slugs on the ground, all hooks in the vicinity taken, but the last survivor struggles, until the killer drops them and everyone got to waste 4min till the bleedout timer runs out. When the game is over, I don't hide or struggle, just hook me or give me hatch, but I don't want to waste everyones time like that. You can argue "hur dur I will always fight to the last. And I have won so many clutch games by this!!!111", but my claim still stands that this is just bitterly denying the killer their 4k and trying to spoil it the last second. Especially if you just crawl into a corner and bleed out.
And the same mindset sometimes leads people down the road you see here ^^ "No cake for you, you undeserving ****"
I agree and with all the standing around at the exit gates wasting my time i won't be either.
I'll also be on Holiday for 25 days in India so i'll miss out but that's besides the point.
Nah. I’d rather save them for a new chapter I like. Still have 96 of last year’s ones on Jane
hahah I'm defo going to be stealing this phrase.
You've summed it up perfectly lol.
I would have to assume that this event will actually encourage survivors to just leave. Thats the best way to maximize bloodpoint gains
There's no point in stacking your cakes up if you're not going to use them. Just be cordial an use them.
I'll wait as long as I need to. Or if my friends ever decide to hop back on and SWF.
I've been mostly solo since mid 2019, it was never as bad as it's been this year.
Are you new to these events? They're easily the worst games of the year. I won't play during them anymore. I sure as hell wouldn't burn a cake if I did.
To each their own I guess.
No I’m gonna hoard them and keep them as collections. 😉
Idk how Ultima online was but final fantasy 11 was and still is inventory nightmare a example would be for a pld you would need a 50 dt set a 50 mdt set 2 to 3 weapons skill sets a enmity set then possible cure potency set o.o yay macros.
Just a friendly reminder that this is your reward for using your cakes. USE THEM!
I hope DBD Devs choose to make them expire so that people will stop being annoying about it.
LMAO. Flan is already disabled. I hope just because of a coding error and it not giving the proper blood points and not due to toxicity. ^^
