    Question for you, have you ever tried playing hag and only running Hex:Haunted ground? (Maybe with Thrill of the Hunt?, or seriously with other hexes) I really wonder how useful this perk is on a killer everyone expects to have hexes.

      Yeah I run Haunted, but I found the slowing effect of thrill to be more effective for my playstyle. it's more about time with the hag. I run it on spirit with ruin and devour, and have success.

    I knew people used “meta” wrong but I had no idea people changed the meaning. All you need is a quick google search to see the meaning.

    As far as the Fog Whispers, at the end of the day they are streamers for a very niche game with a very niche community and player base. And don't let their numbers fool you. Many of their viewers aren't necessarily players of DbD nor people looking at maybe buying it.

    I'll explain.

    In the 8 months I didn't play DbD, I still watched some streams when I was bored, had no errands or work to do, and didn't feel like reading or watching Netflix. I preferred the smaller streamers. I would meet people in chat all the time that didn't own or play DbD, but watched the streams because watching the Survivor vs Killer hide-and-seek horror aspect of the play was fun to watch. And it was. I found out that I was having more fun watching DbD than actually playing the broken game.

    Even the large Fog Whisperers, they're viewership is a mere fraction of the actual player base. People talk about OrchiDo or whatever the hell his name is all the time. I have never seen a single stream of his. I don't watch Jen, or Scott, or Edgar, or OhTofu, or Truetalent, or any of those guys. I don't find them nor their Streamer-Personality entertaining.

    Despite the Fog Whisperer title, they're still tiny streamers broadcasting a tiny game compared to the Streamers out there that can actually influence a game, and are paid upward of $1 million just to stream a game for a few hours (As EA did with them for Apex Legends). They aren't Ninja, Shroud, Dr. Disrespect, KingRichard, and the like.

    Just ignore the Fog Whisperers. Toxicity in DbD existed long before any of them built their little streams. Just as it existed in games like Overwatch long before streamers like xQc were toxic. They don't influence the player base the way people think. They aren't nearly larger nor influential enough, except with people here at the forums.
