When you win or lose, do you say GG?

Title says it all. Goes for both killers and survivors. When you win, you say gg. When you lose, you're probably dead silent. I'm sure this doesn't apply obviously...but do you often say gg?

    I say gg whenever I can as survivor (I play on PS4, so a lot of people have their messages closed). As killer I won't go out of my way to message gg to survivors unless they message me.

    I do. I try to send gg :) every game. Win or lose.

    Not if I don’t mean it. If the killer or survivor plays optimally and does their best to respect each other, then yes I do, even if I get pallet stunned all game.

    My choice is to use “gg” as a sort of “cheers 🍻” for the player doing very well in the game, otherwise, I’d like to keep value to the term as it’s tossed around to casually these days.

    Honestly, no. I stopped the GG thingy in Dbd some time ago. Its rarely appreciated, often seen as a taunt or salty message. I would rather stay quiet, check everyone's loudout, and then move on to the next match.

    GG really doesn't mean that it was a good game. It's just something you say. Like the winner of a boxing match hugs the guy he just knocked out.

    Edit : I say it no matter what

  • ImmoralImmoral Member Posts: 25

    It was always tossed out casually, way back to when we played quake 1 2 and 3

    I say gg if it was one. I'm not into lying just because it's a social convention to do so - I'm the kind of person who will answer honestly if you ask how I am, and not just say "good, thanks" if I'm not doing well.

    So when it comes to the gg thing, if it was a good game, I'll say so. Win or lose. If it wasn't, I usually just won't say anything. Cause I don't want to be mean, I just don't want to lie.

    I say gg but usually add the peoples names that said it back, or aren't being rude or complainy.

  • snozersnozer Member Posts: 776

    Only say gg if it is an actual good game.

    If we destroy the killer, it was not a gg for that killer

    If we go against iri huntress with mori, it was not a gg.

    I do if I don't feel the other team was scummy.

  • JC316JC316 Member Posts: 693

    Always, even if I'm being salty afterwards.

  • Colton147Colton147 Member Posts: 523

    I keep quiet. I'm not much of a talker.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 1,500

    I have disabled all messages so I can't write to anyone and they can't contact me. Did not even know what gg means 😃 I don't play other online games so.

  • NMCKENMCKE Member Posts: 7,381

    Some people who lose, take "GG" as "Git Gud". That's why I type out the full, "Good Game" as opposed to "GG", so players can't bait me. 😁🤗

  • Doc_W__HOLLIDAYDoc_W__HOLLIDAY Member Posts: 2,347

    If the game was fun, gg. If not, I have nothing to say back!

  • sulaimansulaiman Member Posts: 1,564

    In this game, gg usually means "i won. you lost", because in 95% of the cases i encounter, its used from the winning party if they just destroyed the other side, like a 4k, or a 4 escape. Sometimes the guy that escaped through the hatch gives a gg.

    So i think gg is mostly used as another taunt in this game, so i dont use it anymore unless it was a real good game, but then i am not only saying gg but also give details of why i think it was one.

    For my own enjoyment of DBD I keep the post game chat comments always closed. There are too many times when others bring bad feelings from inside the game to afterwards and it can be toxic, especially from entitled players.

    I prefer scrolling through the stats, seeing the build layouts used, then going to the next game, all the while being oblivious to what other people are writing to each other. Yes sometimes they are genuinely nice to each other afterwards but it's not the rule. I might be missing positive things going on, or people expecting praise as a courtesy, but in my mind I've moved on by that time.

  • raulblideranraulblideran Member Posts: 225

    Yes I do. When there were way better survivors than me and played way better than I did as a killer, yep I say all the time and sometimes even: "well played guys". Although in real life im sweaty as hell and probs about to break my desk, I know that it was my mistake.

    As a survivor yes as well even when I get against a killer that camped or tunneled, sometimes since I play killer a lot I don't judge their decission.

  • IceCreamPrincessIceCreamPrincess Member Posts: 225

    Its just a reflex for me now, win or lose, close match or stomp, toxic or completely chill, i will always say "ggs" in the post game. If i got more to say then yeah I'll add to it, but theres always that ggs

  • Johnny_XManJohnny_XMan Member Posts: 3,305

    If teammates dc at the start, no.

    It wasn't a real match to begin with.

  • GH0ST3DGH0ST3D Member Posts: 93

    As survivor I say gg as long as I got a fair chance of living. As killer I say gg to the ones who don't tbag. Winning isn't everything to me.

  • TalmeerTalmeer Member Posts: 1,435

    If it was a match in my favor, or a normal match, or also a "normal" lose, yes.

    However, if I feel cheated I mostly leave the endgame screen as soon as possible, or leave the endgame screen with a "would like to catch you guys 1 day alone" or something like that^^.

    I insult no one, but I also don't hide what I think.

  • CakeDutyCakeDuty Member Posts: 556

    I say gg whether I win or lose as killer. If I play survivor I don't stay around to say gg if I die first or second. But if I escape or survive doesn't matter. I'll say gg if the killer didn't intentionally act like an idiot.

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 11,968

    My chat is closed by standard, so I'm silent, even if I 4K/escape.

  • PrettyFaceKatePrettyFaceKate Member Posts: 1,704

    I say gg when it was really a good game. As a killer, it's usually the case win or lose, unless they play super immersed, bait-and-switch keys in the lobby, or taunt me. In the last two cases, I might say gg if I destroy them, because I have a blast when that happens, so I say the truth with gg.

    As a survivor, if I go against let's say iri head+infantry belt+ebony with proxy and tunnel, honestly I don't see a reason to say it's a gg. Stuff like that is in the game, so I'll just move on. However, in all honesty, it's not a good game for me, so I see no reason to lie.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    I write"gg wp" after every match. If i playes against nice people they get my positive vibes and if i play against toxic twats they ger annoyed by my positivety. Everybody wins.

    If no one was toxic and the game was actually decently long without being a curb stomp on either side it gets a gg. A "gg" is for it actually being in fact a "good game". If those aforementioned things happened then it wasn't a good game.

    SWF will "almost" never get a gg aside from the occasional really friendly group. There's nothing "good game" about playing a game against someone using unbalanced advantages of which you have no counter.

  • oxygenoxygen Member Posts: 2,014

    I always say gg as long as I'm there at the end. Not gonna wait around to say it if I die early, but to me it's just drilled into me to say it after a match after playing multiplayer games for decades at this point.
