I started having fun when i switched my messages to 'friends only' and stopped worrying about what other people thought about my playstyle as either survivor or killer. I actually find it more fun to try out new killers without having to worry about the salt you get whether you win or lose. Yeah I know i suck the first time round playing a killer, fairly sure i don't need confirmation from people.
Other than that, anything non toxic from either side, that makes me laugh, I consider that a win, because it's a game, and while I appreciate people should be allowed to have a competitive attitude towards it, I simply don't.
I'm a Killer Main (80% of my games are killer)
3k is a win. That doesn't mean I can't have a fun match if I only kill 1 or 2 but I didn't win.
As a survivor an escape through a doorway is a personal win. But for a survivor team win you need to get 2 people out.
Gates opened: Survivors win
Gates closed: Killer wins
As killer it's more about knowing i did well. If i get a 2k against a SWF team then i'l be happy, but against a bunch of rank 20's id probs be very sad.
As for survivor purely depends again on how well i think i've done. If i die early on i'l be very annoyed
Being chased for 5 gens only to die to a noed killer and lose 1 pip.
It's a win for me ;)))
I would personally like a win to be "the game tells you that you win."
Killer wins for hatch escapes. Its a quick way to end the game, it doesn't feel like a true, earned escape.
A “win”for me is escape. Just because i won though doesn’t mean it was fun and visa versa. Win or lose is secondary to “was this match worth the 15 minute wait to play”. If I get insta hooked first thing and then die having spent more time waiting for the match than playing, I’m annoyed or upset. If I get to participate in the match, contribute to someone else’s escape, and/or get over 30k BP I am very happy even if I do not escape. If I do escape and do got to actually play the game, I am thrilled. probably screaming or laughing as I escape.
imo: pip = win
I guess it falls under "have a good game", with some special exceptions depending on what build I'm using.
If I'm running Devour Hope I've already won in my mind if I get to mori a single survivor with it for example, and if I get 4 stacks of BBQ&Chili I might still lose, but the defeat sure tastes like a win in the end 😄
For survivor I often sacrifice myself to save someone else, but if I'm running a plundering build you better believe I'm out of there if I found something nice. I guess I indirectly play for pips as survivor as trying to do multiple things (saves, gens, chase, stealth and so on) tends to give decent emblems and BP.
Bottom line is I'd much rather have a game with lots of action and kill 2 survivors than get a 4k with 5 gens up because they just rushed the hook and all got smacked down, just like I'd rather die as a survivor with 20k points than annihilate a killer I clearly outmatch and get 11k points.
Having fun and memeing with the killer
I like to get survivors killed or sacrificed by any means necesary, I don't care if the Entity gets displeased or not. But my ultimate prize is getting a salty comment from a dead survivor in my Steam profile. That means I made someone so mad, angry and miserable that they wasted time writing those hatefull words trying to cleanse themselves from those feelins to no avail. I call those "My trophies" <3
I like to escape as a survivor, I am not very good at it ;-)
Survivor its escaping and as killer its getting a 4k or 3k.
4 bbq stacks i could care less if they escaped
well i don't know for sure... depends how i feel at the time when i play. sometimes i have fun only being first killed as survivor , or playing billy and being bad at nurse... :))) sometimes i play just one match then i close the game for 3-4 days...(yes, i have fun by not playing the game sometimes.... sometimes minecraft is better <3 )
4 tokens of bbq or wglf~
Got at least 1 pip or got more than 50k bloodpoints per round = win
Great chases and mindgames coupled with lots of BPs. It's what I love most about the game.
3+ kills as killer or 3+ escapes (does not have to include myself) as survivor
3k or 4k is a win. 2k is a draw. 1k or less is a loss. If I got hit with multiple MoM or Adrenalines and got 1k, I don't really beat myself up too much over it because those perks are broken when multiple survivors have them together in the same trial. I don't care about pips because it entirely depends on what killer I chose to use. I depip on a 3k half of the time with Trapper.
As a killer getting 25k points + all my bbq stacks. Dont care if the survivors escape or not i just want my time to be worth it.
Same goes for when i play survivor. I dont care if i live or die. If i can get all of my WGLF stacks + 20k - 25k points i am happy.
Points are all that matter to me. I will be pretty upset if i dont get enough points to make my time worth it.
Wrecking a 4 man SWF sweat fest then ignoring them in post game chat for a good 5 minutes while they rage, then simply say.
And close the lobby.
Adrenaline is broken aswell nowadays? Come on lad lol
"those perks are broken when multiple survivors have them together in the trial". As in, when survivor A has MoM, Adrenaline, etc., and survivor B has MoM, Adrenaline, etc., and so forth.
Competitively, at least one pip.
Casually, successfuly having fun. It's harder the higher you climb.
@Weederick blood warden tho
Ok everyone who's saying that winning is "having fun" or "playing well" or whatever. That may sound great and all but inevitably makes absolutely no sense as a wincondition. Like try applying that logic to other games.
In league of legends if I have fun then did I win? If so then does having more fun than the other team mean I should get the prize money from a tournament even if they destroyed our base every time? If so then clearly all of these tournaments are doing it wrong and everyone is lying/wrong about their win/loss records. If not then dead by daylight wouldn't be any different. And if "that's different" then prove it.
As a survivor: being in a scenario in which whatever stupid meme build I'm using actually does what it's supposed to do (even if I still end up dying)
As a killer: Getting t-bagged for less than 100 crouches
