Not everyone FL clicking is using a macro. I sure don't I just do it for meme potential and when I'm bored.
If a person is triggered by flashlight clicks in a video game... he's a child. Or an adult with the mental and emotional capacity of one.
If the devs are removing my ability to spam Pig's dash attack roar, then they should remove flashlight click spam, too!
... What I meant to say is, please don't remove my ability to spam Pig's dash attack roar.
Anyway, flashlight clicking can be annoying, but it's not really a big deal. At least if they're clicking their flashlight they're not working on gens. Over time I've gotten used to a lot of this dumb stuff and it bothers me less.
in general they need to do something about noise spam.
flashlight clicks arent that bad, you can get away from them very easily after all, however someone jumping in and out of a locker repeatedly is nothing you can just ignore, its always this annoying explosion on your screen that makes it freakin hard to concentrate on the chase you are currently in.
thats just annoying and nothing else - and needs to be reworked.
The Frisk is BMing? Butt Munching? Xx
Devs removed that irritating ringing sound from Hag's disfigured ear deafening addon because of complaints it was aggravating people with tinnitus. (myself included) Now the disfigured ear still deafens you (It muffles sound to almost zero for a few seconds) but it doesn't have this ear-splitting high-pitched ringing noise as if a flashbang went off directly next to your head.
I feel flashlight macro's ought to be tackled in the same way. There's no reason to use a flashlight macro other than to be toxic. HOW it should be changed I am not sure (Half or quarter second delay between clicks so even with a macro it's just clickclickclickclickclick? Charge being used up when flashlight is activated so macro spam rapidly drains it?) but people using external software/macros to click thousands of times per second following you around the entire match with the audio cutting through itself has flat-out no purpose in the game. Every macro-user I have ran into is also the type of survivor who'll teabag and macro-spam after every pallet stun thinking he's the most radical, awesome DBD player in the world and will trash-talk in post-game. Give up and try to ignore 'em and chase other survivors? They'll follow you around with it on.
I do play the game at a normal volume and have a ton of hours. (Over 1.5K) I'm not dropping the game over a few bad apples. I just think the flashlight auto-fire should be addressed. People only do it to be [BAD WORD]s. Rapidly clicking to get the killer's attention is fine but when it's being done so fast via autohotkey or something it's downright painful to some users maybe it should be addressed.
Isn't that working as intended, though? You are supposed to drop palettes as a distraction, as evidenced by the tooltips.
Though I do agree perhaps infinite spamming of a locker needs to be addressed, similar to window vaults. I wouldn't mind seeing an entity block on a locker spammed 3 times in quick succession.
They didn't say if wasn't garbage behavior. They said to learn to roll your eyes at the idiots doing it. Bming only works if you let it.
As for your air horn analogy, that would be causing actual harm. If you were punched in the throat for it. It would be warranted.
there is a difference between "making some noise to lure the killer over here" and "spamming the fastvault so the killer gets a noise notification every .5 seconds until he is so annoyed that he comes over there, hooks and facecamps me because i was an annoying little [very bad word]".
i dont mind them trying to lure me over to them by making some noise, but noisespam is an issue that is just annoying and really has to be addressed. devs themselves said they kept the cooldown on Diversion so long, because they wanted to prevent possible noisespam with it.
just put a buffer in, so the noise notification will only be able to play every 5 seconds, if performed by the same survivor on the same object.
they can still make noise to get my attention, but they wont annoy me up to the point where i will bring a mori next time i see them and heavily focus them down.
Edit: i got the name of the perk wrong xD yeah, Distortion aint gonna make a noise spam. its Diversion i was talking about xD
It's always because, you know, having big balls behind a monitor. That's the main reason why such BM thingys even exist.
They are both annoyances, that's why I compared them. Also keep on being toxic, you're doing Ochido's work.
It's an annoyance no matter how you look at it. Much like Mr. toxic over here (Mochan) you're trying to justify toxic behavior by "don't let it get to you, hurrlul people who are annoyed by it are children" etc. Whatever, both of you keep being the reason why this community is horrible.
Btw 55% of playerbase is killer but ok
If you mess up flashlight save timing, a flashlight click saves it and you can get the save
Lmao, you are hilarious buddy. Do you actually compare him/her to someone that plays the game JUST to bully killers?
What they are saying is absolutely true. It is 100% your fault if you get so mad over teabagging or flashlight clicking. Yes, it is annoying, but just get over it and move on.
By the way, let's also disable killers ability to nod to survivors, mori spam and the ability to hit survivors on the hook since it's "toxic behaviour" and annoying.
I am not understanding why it's BM ? Is it the noise that bothersome? Dev's can alter that.
As far as I am concerned survivors waste their flashlight by doing it. They aren't getting flashlight saves, and its not blinding the killer effectively at all.... Seems like its useful/benefits for the killer.. I've seen people waste them like that.
And as far as the noise, it just alerts me to their location if I didn't know already.
I am happier with them clicking vs blinding me... so /shrug.
Yes, that. Lets do that.
At what point did I try to justify it? I said to get over it.
Thank god someone has common sense. I know someone in a Discord who wanted to remove the Survivor moonwalk, calling it an "exploit."
You can use clicking to follow up a chainblind or correct a misstimed FL safe attempt. It has all rights to stay in the game, get over it.
Have you looked in the mirror yourself lately?
I love hooking a clickity click prick, don’t you? 🖤 Xx
I directly ignore the clicking of the flashlight. You have no idea how annoying that is for those survivors. I've had people follow me around trying to get my attention then I turn on them as soon as it's in a bad place for them. Just roll with it man, it's on them.
Oh and they did remove the Killers ability to hit on hook as far as I saw. Swung in for a wap on a save and bounced off the hooked guy like a wall. Weird, but I had Unrelenting for once in a meme build so it worked out.
"both of you keep being the reason why this community is horrible."
Clicking a flash light = being the reason why the community is horrible 👌
Oh yeah, I had an Ace do that on Hawkins with the lockers. They had burned a strode offering but I had burned the Hawkins and it favored me for once. I ignored him, got him to come closer by hooking a friend of his. He was good at looping, had BL for the jumps there, but he was first dead. I wonder why... well prolly cause he'd KEEP doing the locker spam. Caught him outta there twice and that was that.
Not gonna lie, I'm glad you can't. No offense of course, but your views are often rather extreme. I think it wouldn't go well for any ONE person to be in control like that anyway though.
That’s type I bring noed for on my legion..that’s if they live long enough :3
