I'm interested in hearing which kind of losses/games that angers you the most. Both as survivor and killer. Also, what makes you feel like you lost without deserving it?

    As a survivor, whenever a killer acts as though they outplayed me when they just get lucky. For example, I'll 360 a killer just to get stuck on nothing and the killer gets me with the very end of their lunge animation and then act smug about it (shaking / nodding head etc).

    As killer, when multiple survivors escape and teabag at the exit gates when I played fair, without annoying perks and tried to make the game as fun as possible for everyone else.

    Dying on first hook in a solo survivor match.

    I hate the feeling of losing Devour Hope right after downing someone, cause now I can't kill.

    On the other hand, I love losing it after I start the kill, cause it's like: "Oof, just too late!"

    Both as survivor and killer: When you get a strike of unlucky events one after the other during the whole game for some unknown reason. And you pretty much know if you didn't get so unlucky the game would have gone in a completely different way. Instead it feels like the entity decided you had to lose before the game even started. 😅

    This includes a mix of unlucky events, technical issues (that frame drop the instant you had to press the button to dead hard, get the last skill check to finish the gen when the killer is going for you, grab a survivor, hit the survivor vaulting the window or dropping the pallet, etc). 😡

    Thankfully it's really rare... but damn it's annoying when it happens.

    When the match is genuinely laggy.

  • Mister_xDMister_xD Member Posts: 7,494

    when people DC.

    as a survivor it sucks the most, since you get put into a HUGE disadvantage immediately, as a killer it sucks, since i feel sorry for the rest of the team that gets left behind, just because one douchebag decided to quit immediately. i also get put in a big bloodpoint / emblem point disadvantage.

    Getting downed by Spirit, because there isn't much you can do to prevent it anyway.. like pre-patch Legion.

    Took Iron Will because of how many times i see her so i won't have to DC every single time (even though i'd still like to but it sucks for the remaining survivors).

    When the killer uses scummy tactics and acts like they outplayed me.

    As a survivor:

    Being moried in any way (except cypress and ivory, I can take those. And maybe Rancor) because I feel like I didn't deserve such an early death that guarantees me losing a pip. Also when I am left to die on hook. I get even more angry when I have kindred equipped. I also hate being tunneled to death, because it guarantees me losing a pip, not able to do anything about it. I also hate it when someone on purposely suicides or disconnects in the beginning of the game, because you just ruined people's days when you do that.

    As a killer:

    When survivors are so cocky, they heal and walk in front of you like you are a noob killer. I also hate seeing full team Claudettes (or any coordinated toxic swf) that are toxic and infects the post game chat. I hate when anyone disconnects, suicides, or is left on hook to die. Then the survivor that left other survivors to die will also die. >:(

    I also kill anyone who tries to point out someone in a locker, people like that are jerks.

    I feel like I am forgetting something, but that is basically everything. :)

    As a killer

    I can deal with butt dancing

    Pallets stuns and flashlight blinds at every pallet don't annoy me

    A lot of the things survivors do don't really annoy me however if there's 2 things that gets on my nerves and turns me into a petty douche.

    Last second switches: honestly I don't care what you run ( be a P3 Claudette with a flashlight if you want) but if you try to cheap it out yeah that's going to definitely put you on my hit list. You want to pull a dick move like that then I'll tunnel or camp you.

    Flashlight clicking: it's very annoying and as I've always stated if you want all my attention so badly I'll give it to you however nine times out of ten I'll mostly give it to you when you're on hook

    As a survivor

    Farmers: I can never actually get mad at the killer for taking advantage of it because it's their job they shouldn't pay less efficiently because my teammates are potatoes. Have some common sense if you don't have a plan don't save me also unless an exit gate is open and within reasonable distance borrowed time does not mean you didn't farm me.

    Being left on hook: Yeah when The Killers on the other side of the map you mind helping me before I had second stage so I don't know me have two shots at life. It only makes it worse when about to hit second stage and all I can see you doing is urban evasioning your way over here.


    People who won't leave: this annoys me as both a survivor and a killer.

    As a killer it's incredibly annoying to have you stick in the match for an extended period of time whilst end game collapse has mitigated this it's still annoying when people wait out the time until the last second.

    As a survivor well it often isn't as relevant since the change but before it used to be super annoying when I had a reverse bear trap on and survivors were just being piggy instead of leaving so I could get hatch. Before you make the argument that they were staying behind to help people even when I got hooked they would just stay at exit gate to teabag so they would just doing it to bm

    It absolutely infuriated me when I’m playing as a survivor and I seem to be having a perfectly normal game but as I leave the exit gates and move into the area which would usually mean an escape, I am met with no transition, my survivor just continues and I cannot escape.

    i have seen others suffer from this and although it seems rare, playing the amount of games I play and how often I see it I find it unacceptable for survivors to be completely robbed from perfectly fair escapes

  • CasmCasm Member Posts: 61

    Let's see. I'm solo survivor when I play survivor so my games tend to end up more on the frustrating side. Dying on my first hook because survivors are too afraid to go for rescues are a pretty infuriating loss. Though almost as infuriating is when I run the killer around for a fairly lengthy time only to ultimately get downed and see that each of the other survivors are crouching around the map not doing gens or literally anything at all. So, it's always a priority to get out of the low ranks asap.

    As a killer, this seems to happen to me a fair bit but the survivors will get down to 1 gen and I'll have 1 survivor killed and several others on death hook. I'll patrol the generators like a good killer should only for the remaining 3 survivors to instantly escape through the hatch that was nowhere even remotely close to where I was patrolling, using a key that was either found or brought. Just feels like I got cheated out of what was otherwise a pretty good game up until that point where everyone was playing well but either got lucky or simply 'cheesed' a victory. Or that's how it feels anyway. Though I will say, if I notice a survivor bringing a key, I'll slap on a green mori and save it for that player. Other than daily rituals, that's about the only time I ever bother to bring a mori.

    As a killer: when survivors abuse ridiculous map structures like the Ironworks window, or when I go up against 3 or 4 instaheals plus 4 Adrenaline. Games where it feels like I didn't get outplayed but still lost. Just blatantly unbalanced stuff.

    As a survivor: The typical solo survivor frustrations

  • csandman1977csandman1977 Member Posts: 2,280

    As killer, going against swf teams with survivors 8 ranks higher than me. The whole time tea bagging and pointing. I get it. You are better than me.

    And actually survive with friends in general. Kinda wish that they would implement a voice communication system that wouldn't just go through headsets. Like whatever you say is spoken by your survivor and can only be heard from a certain distance. And the killer would be able to gear it too. Off topic sorry.

    As survivor, spawning in and turning a corner into the killer. Happens all the time. Ive been burning shrouds lately just to be able to play the game.

  • blue4zionblue4zion Member Posts: 2,422

    As Survivor, it's losing an offering because the killer dced at the start of the game/ early game. This is absolutely infuriating and I cannot believe there's no safeguard for this type of crap.

    As killer, I try not to get pissed but sometimes it just feels like you can't do anything against a team of survivors who are cranking out gens left and right. I feel so helpless as the "power" role and it's frustrating.

  • MewMew Member Posts: 1,695

    As killer, having people get flashlight saves on me when i cant even see them on my screen. Also syringes when im playing a pure m1 killer (usually wraith.)

    As survivor, moris and the usual solo annoyances. Also annoying add ons like Iri head and prayer beads (and kinda spirit in general, i find her very boring to go against and I barely have any fun against her.)

  • Atrushan88Atrushan88 Member Posts: 2,083

    Being unhooked right in front of the killer's face only to get downed again because they decided to unhook me without borrowed time before the killer even had time to walk away from the hook.

    As killer, I'm more disappointed in wins with the same conditions. If a survivor unhooks another survivor right in my face, I feel pity for them because their teammates are either #########, or idiots, and either way that's leading to my win. It's not my victory, it's one they handed to me. The only type of loss that infuriates me as killer is when a red rank SWFs with a bunch of rank 16-20s for an easy win, and even then I generally get at least 2 of their friends. These games are just ridiculous because the red rank survivor will either annoy the hell out of me by fast vaulting consistently until I come after them, or just be extremely annoying in general by trying for flashlight saves, pallet saves, etc every time someone gets down, forcing me to slug their friend, chase them away, and then the other friends try to heal them up while I'm chasing them off. Incredibly annoying games like that.

    Before I used to get angry, but these days I get frustrated.


    1st hook death hook!

    killer tunnels r20 team mates

    Urban Evasion team mates

    Prayer Beads, Insta saw, 1 shot hatchet or omega / multi -blink Nurse

    moris as that generally means someone (or everyone) will get tunneled off the hook.


    Survivors that keep running "Matt Walker" windows

    4 man cheat with friends that use OoO, gen rush toolboxes and insta heals

    Med kits during evening hours or weekends as they are almost always insta heals. My first game this weekend had 3 medkits so I prepared for that and surprise who would have quessed?

  • KiskashiKiskashi Member Posts: 1,043

    Both of these are so accurate, especially the killer one, but also a random key find in a match I was otherwise set to win in another minute or so, had it happen a while ago with pig, 1 gen left that was half progress (not that hard seriously but they all sucked at running me) and 2 last survivors went immersed for 5-10 minutes only to find a key and find the hatch. That was probably the most annoying key play in existence purely because of the 10 minute immersion game, really wish I had whispers on my pig that day...

    As a survivor, teammates who hide near the hook and don’t save until second phase due to crouch walking or “hiding from nothing” then only save you just as the killer is returning and then take off leaving you to die...even with kindred, just...the worst thing aside from normal “teammate” issues. Those killers who instead target the unhooking deserter are my absolute favourite beings.❤️ Seriously makes my day when the killer destroys them for it and gives me a second chance in a game that otherwise would have been over.

    What angers me the most is when the game ends and it crashes/loses connection causing me to earn no bp and losing my items and offerings.

    But thankfully that barely ever happens.

    I also get really grumpy when I die very early in a game (Mori, Tombstone Myers, not getting rescued...)

    Clicky flashlight muppets and group hook blockers. Hideous.

  • KabuKabu Member Posts: 926

    What frustrates me the most as a Killer is when I see two to three survivors and go to chase after them only to have jump into the hatch. T bagging on the way out.... Man, it's infuriating when anyone gets out via key.

    I'd advocate for mori's and unfair add-ons to be removed (prayer beads, iridescent hatchet etc). With instaheal and keys being removed in exchange. The game would be so much better. I don't mind rancor and adrenaline or even ds but instaheal and keys need to go.
