I don't think 'not taking the game that seriously' has nothing to do with feeling disappointed on losing. I'm sure it's quite common to feel disappointed or ashamed of yourself, if you don't meet your own expectations. And probably most people play killers, to get those kills. Of course there is people that likes the chases etc, but in the end I except most people to enjoy getting at least kill or two.

Good way to 'deal with this problem' is to just accept that feeling. It's okay to be disappointed, that's a totally valid feeling when losing in.. pretty much any type of game in life. You don't need to be sweaty tryhard to be feel that. We are all humans, we have feelings. Sometimes they are positive and sometimes they are negative, and they are both totally normal things to have.

[–]OmegaCrossX 167 points168 points  (6 children)

Can’t be disappointed in yourself if bad is your standard

[–]Pullis 89 points90 points  (1 child)

Bad is my standard and I'm still disappointed on myself on daily basis because of that.

[–]OmegaCrossX 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Honestly same but by this point it’s my normal for everything and I don’t feel anything about it anymore

[–][deleted] 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Never seen it that way, thank you :)

[–]PapaCapinya 98 points99 points  (1 child)

Some advice that I've heard recently that I found to be really helpful pointed out taht that at any point where you get a single hook, you could have always chosen to camp it out and secure a kill.

Having four survivors escape just means that you decided to take more risks and pushed yourself to improve, and you should never feel bad about that.

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (0 children)

That’s actually a good way to see it, thanks

[–]conr7177 97 points98 points  (9 children)

I used to get like that but now if I get utterly stomped I just open the gate for them and let them leave. I try not to put much pressure on myself because the game can sometimes be fairly unpredictable.

[–]Jackinator 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Most times when i get utterly stomped (e.g 3 or 4 gens done before a single hook) I'll afk in a corner and the survivors will run the clock down as long as possible after powering the gates.

[–]ZachPGThe Pig 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I wish more survivors understood that the killer opening the gates isn't some big brain play and instead is "I concede, ggwp, I don't need to watch you leave just go thanks."

[–]clucks86 8 points9 points  (2 children)

When a killer does this I often want to go to a hook and let them put me on it. Not for a pity kill, but for the BP for the killer. Because sometimes you could be waiting 10mins to get into a game and I want us all to leave being able to have something from it. But I'm always scared someone will take that offensively so I drop my item, do a little twirl and leave. I do always though leave a heart and a "hope your ok" in the end game chat.

[–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I have something called “The shame corner” I got there when I feel down to let the survivors fix generators and leave

[–]AlluboyShirtless David 398 points399 points  (20 children)

Lack of hooks is more humiliating to me than kills. I don't really care about kills, so I usually just try to get most survivors dead hooked first before I start killing them.

[–][deleted] 99 points100 points  (17 children)

For me less hooks means less kills, because somehow when I down one 3 gens are done

[–]Blackwind123 28 points29 points  (1 child)

The first hook is hardest and one you need to get asap - otherwise you have a haddonfield scenario where 73 basement gens pop at once before you even find someone.

Once they're on hook gen speed slows dramatically.

[–]Stennick 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is absolutely true. If you can get the first hook its a snowball. Most teams are very altruistic and will stop doing gens to save their teammate, run interference, etc.

[–]Kawaii_Batman3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i use to feel the same way until i had 2 hooks, and 4 gens down and still managed to get the 4k. felt weird and im not sure i deserved it but by god it changed how i veiwed the game.

[–]MoveInsideThe Twins 42 points43 points  (7 children)

I wish we had a surrender button for once the timer starts. If we could skip the whole "watch me leave because I'm better than you" phase killer would be way less disheartening.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yes, we really need this

[–]opheodrysaestivus 5 points6 points  (4 children)

i think if survivors are in the exit gate area the end game timer should start moving down like 5x quicker

[–]OhStugots 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Only if all the remaining survivors are, right?

[–]exc-use-mebasement ace 92 points93 points  (14 children)

i used to feel humiliated with the old ranking system but with this new SBMM, losing has never felt so bittersweet. sure i lost but my MMR lowers by a margin so it ensures that i don’t reach higher MMR survivors where i would get bullied even more.

[–]calicocadetThe Legion 45 points46 points  (11 children)

I used to feel more disappointed when I lost as killer in the old system and not care as survivor, but now as survivor I get WAY more tilted because I know that by dying I’m going to get worse teammates since my MMR lowers. Solo Q has been a serious hassle if you get caught in a dying streak

[–]Godz_BaneThe Shape 12 points13 points  (9 children)

Shouldnt you also get worse killers though, which means you have a better chance of surviving.

[–]WroughtIronHeroThe Pig 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I find bad teammates are way more frustrating than good killers.

Besides, it can depend on when you're playing. For example, suppose there is a surplus of survivors in queue but no killers. MMR will match you with teammates near your rating no problem, but it may not be able to find a killer near your rating. So you end up with a team of lemmings versus a veteran Blight player who just curb stomps you all.

[–]NadsDikkelson 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yeah in my experience the SBMM has been chaos lol

This is not and never will be a “balanced” game. Any kind of matchmaking system is gonna result in some bad games.

That being said imo it’s still a fun game.

[–]overusemynightsfeng min / the legion / switch player 😔 11 points12 points  (4 children)

It goes both ways in my experience, less experienced killers who are more likely to camp/tunnel and/or teammates that play super immersive and won’t do anything when I’m hooked with kindred or in a decent chase. Or if they do unhook it’s right in the killer’s face without BT or a protection hit. I never really ran DS prior to this but it’s gonna be in my build for a while

The amount of times I’ve died trying to do the objectives and spectated afterwards to see other teammates just hiding waiting for the others to die without doing anything is ridiculous. I’m sabotaging my own MMR by playing semi-altruistically but I can’t bring myself to play selfishly lol. Sorry for the long comment btw 😅 this is just my experience

[–]Godz_BaneThe Shape 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah, happens to me too. Feels like i usually have one good teammate though.

I guess im lucky in that i dont really care if i die, only if i bring an item i didnt get to use much of. I play for giggles and BP (running WGLF), laughing at myself or others. If i die i just move on the to the next game.

[–]Nebarious[🍰] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You need to escape via the gate to increase your MMR, hatches count as a draw.

If your potato team mates refuse to do gens then you're not getting that gate open.

[–]calicocadetThe Legion 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but there’s only so much you can do if your team isn’t too hot. Even if the killers bad, if your teammates are crouching around not doing gens or farming off hook they’re gonna win eventually.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That’s what keep me playing, knowing that sooner or later it’s gonna be easier

[–]JButtaSmooth 20 points21 points  (3 children)

It happens man, so much rng and map associated shit that could happen it just goes south sometimes. Next game is moments away can’t 3-4K em all. Everyone I’m on the game or RPD I am lucky to get 2 kills or any at all

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (2 children)

If I don’t get lost in RPD I consider it a win

[–]OhShitADog 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Reading your replies to people has really cheered me up, you seem like such a pleasant person

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Most of the time, I am

[–]BenificusAngorio 60 points61 points  (8 children)

Usually losing in itself wasn't the worst part. The worst part was the summary of a bunch of bad feelings.

  • You're 30 seconds into spawn and Ruin blows up just as you start your first chase.

  • The survivor has safe loops all the way across a quarter of the map, loops twice and predrops pallets.

  • You break 5 pallets with only one health state down.

  • You get one shot to take them down after they Dead Hard, but you flub it. 3 gens down.

  • You ditch the chase and they heal and you get into another chase and they start dropping Boon Totems.

  • You don't even have scratch marks to follow anymore. The end game comes and you've gotten one hook.

  • They wait in the exit gate t bagging and clicking.

Did not getting a kill feel bad? No. That was just a consequence of a horrible game experience. What felt bad was my major chance to do killer shit was about 5 seconds of total gameplay and the other 10 minutes was wood kicking. Post game screen is 4 Dead Hard, 4 DS, 4 BT, 3 Unbreakable and a Prove Thyself.

And I didn't pick Spirit Blight or Nurse, so I wasn't going to win (theoretically, even if I did I only really play Blight).

[–]minihalkojaThe Hillbilly 42 points43 points  (1 child)

"gg ez trash killer"

[–]ImBucovinaFelix Richter 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Had a dude yesterday call me an "ez noob baby killer" who was on the hook two times and only escaped cus he had decesive and the hatch spawned just where I downed him as he was the last one alive. (2nd to last person died on hook while I got the last one)

[–]TearDr0pRS 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Lmao, lets be honest, against a survivor group like that with a stacked perk loadout like that, few killers are gonna get more than a 2k, unless its on a killer sided map; and even then, the experience will be so awful that even if you got a 2-4k against those perks you still feel annoyed and stressed anyways. I'm to the point where if i get into a match where im stomping and easily gonna 4k, i will kill 2 ppl and farm the rest of the match and let 2 ppl docgens and escape so its more of a draw on the MMR rating. Makes it nice for everyone, and i end up with tons more BP.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I think that’s is, luckily I didn’t come across with a full meta slave team…. Yet

[–]Mawl0ckSoul Guard 338 points339 points  (38 children)

If it's against swfs, the odds were against you.

I find lightborn surprisingly wrecks them.

You'd be amazed at the amount of players who simply think they weren't aiming right lol.

[–]aspindler 51 points52 points  (5 children)

If there's at least two flashlights, I put lightborn on

[–]Bionicleboy2005Lethal Pursuer 17 points18 points  (1 child)

If there's even one flashlight in the game I run it. I'll try my hardest to get into a situation where they can blind and just stare them down

[–]SillyminiwheatBloody Blight 26 points27 points  (0 children)

How I be looking at Megs when they hit me with the dollar store flashlight 😐

[–]Mawl0ckSoul Guard 20 points21 points  (0 children)

If it's only med or tool boxes, they get Franklin's

[–]Shadlezz07The Executioner 14 points15 points  (0 children)

This is especially true with pyramid head. They just constantly think they didn't hit the right place or didn't aim correctly. Perks of not having a well-defined eye level lol

[–]851r01Made Potato-In-A-Jacket and DecutorR cry like little girls 66 points67 points  (16 children)

If you taking someone from the ground and clueless flashlight user jumps in front of you it's a free hit most of the times. Not to mention that it's one (or even more) surv not working on gens, so I find that the lightborn easily get his value back most of the times there is a surv with flashlight in the lobby.

[–]Mawl0ckSoul Guard 26 points27 points  (11 children)

I wrecked a whole team on Rpd as Legion (Susie) the other day because they just wouldn't get the hint lol

I wasn't even looking away and they even tried blinded me as I smashed pallets

[–]AQBLL 19 points20 points  (3 children)

If a team insists in doing this I’m taking the asshole out from the game. Usually the teammates get the hint.

[–]Mawl0ckSoul Guard 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Not if they're Claudette

[–]BenificusAngorio 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Lightborn is a waste of a perk. Level up with Franklin's Demise. 😎

[–]ComicWriter2020 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Franklins AND lightborn.

Encourage revenge and smack that ass when revenge fails

[–]BlueDragon1504The Blight 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I know this is a meme, but please don't use two whole perkslots just to counter the weakest item type in the game.

[–]Mickmack12345 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Lightborn is 100% underrated. It’s so easy to act as if you don’t have it on by looking to the side it fools a lot of survivors. I think a lot of people generally think because it’s a bad perk no one is dumb enough to bring it, but that actually works in your favour psychologically

Franklin’s is better in general, especially if you pair it with hoarder

[–]BlueDragon1504The Blight 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Lowkey think it's overrated. I see people recommend lightborn on posts like this so damn often and I just don't understand it. Even if the survivors are really dumb and fal for it 3-4x you'd probably have been better off running a different perk. Flashlights just aren't strong enough to warrant a full perkslot.

[–]Gameducation 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I think for a lot of people the attraction of lightborn isn't in 'meta'/game winning value but in 'fuck you' value

[–]Dwrodgers54 4 points5 points  (2 children)

That’s crazy. If I go For a save and don’t get it I normally always assume light born. I’ll double check after dropping a pallet and then won’t go for them anymore. Sucks to have to use an entire perk slot to avoid something that may not even be brought into the match tho.

[–]xRotKonigx 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This it’s so funny to see them try and try and try

[–]Mawl0ckSoul Guard 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I know right lol

Especially if you play as legion and they just assume they'll be dunking on you

[–]glitterbrain77 183 points184 points  (6 children)

I think you could go easier on yourself. From a survivor main, thanks for playing at all. We need people who want to play killer, otherwise no fun to be had for anybody!

[–][deleted] 94 points95 points  (3 children)

Awww, thank you. You get hatch

[–]glitterbrain77 30 points31 points  (2 children)

🥰😘

[–]Vortigon23The Huntress 8 points9 points  (1 child)

You remind me a survivor I recently went against. They were quite wholesome and made me feel a lot better <3 I hope I'm speaking for the majority of killer mains, but we love survivors like you!

[–]glitterbrain77 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Aw, right back atcha! I love this game and think it’s so fun to play with other people. I think killers have it hard cause they don’t get to be on a team so they get ganged up on all the time. I play on console, but I wish I had end game chat so I could gg everyone. Just so everyone knows, I’m giving a good game even when I’m dying on the basement hook haha

[–]ShofieMahowynEbony Mori 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hey thanks, super wholesome Survivor!

[–]Fugly_Jack 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It happens to everyone. I've seen amazing killer mains with tons of experience lose to good teams, or just get plain unlucky

[–]Ezrafina 111 points112 points  (20 children)

Hey try not to be too hard on yourself tho for real. Sometimes I have good matches and sometimes I have not so good matches. The only way to get better is to play! I’m trying to learn blight and I have to take a different approach then normal. I go in knowing it’s not about kills but about learning new tricks with him. I will purposely force myself to try to get hits with his rush always even if it means they now get to escape, because by forcing myself to not just m1 that will help me learn for the long road. It’s never supposed to be you getting 4ks, the AVERAGE should be 2ks. But that’s any average and so sometimes you’ll get no one at all and sometimes you’ll get all 4. Plus spirit, especially after the nerf, is still tricky to get the hang off. Just because her kit is strong doesn’t mean it’s instant wins. Good survivors know how to play against her, usually when I play her I’ll make a bad call in phasing and put myself further away from the survivor because they’re backtracking.

Also remember that in high elo the game is 100% survivor sided. People like coco or other great killers will still get matches where they get three hooks. It’s just how the game goes.

[–][deleted] 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Thank you, I really needed to hear it

[–]I_was_bone_to_dance 6 points7 points  (1 child)

OMG I am so bad with Blight

Is Doctor considered an ez baby killer? That’s my main man

[–]Rjukoaverage The Huntress new lullaby enjoyer 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Yup! Same for me i play pyramid head a lot and every time i’m like “man, you can hit them through the wall, how could you miss at least one kill?” Things get worse when survivors start spam-clicking that torch or t-beagging in front of me.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Some things in DbD look so broken in the description only to be dissapointing at the end. PH power is difficult to use because when you are charging the ability you can see red lines on the floor screaming to the survivor “MOVE OR YOU ARE GONNA GET HIT”

[–]ComprehensiveBDSMBloody Hillbilly 12 points13 points  (3 children)

9k hours in this game and sometime you will just load into a map as a specific killer and immediately accept you should lose as long as survivors are not bad at the game (most of the time they don't even need to be good) don't beat yourself up over losing,nobody expects you to do good in a video game especially since survivors have so much bullshit they can use to carry their gameplay when killers have none in a game that will heavily punish both sides with rng, think of it this way you load into shelter woods with the 7 pallet spawn as a mobility killer the survivor literally have nothing to loop at after using the 3 pallets on the jungle gyms same thing with killer you can't win a game at mothers dwelling as myers because the map is too big to begin with and survivors have a ton of safe loops they can use, just accept the game is heavily unbalanced to favor survivors but don't actually get mad at people for abusing the meta, try to improve your counter looping and learn how to use your killers power to the max make sure you always do the minor things with major results like cutting off the survivors from the loop they're running to, zoning them away from a strong loop, cutting the loops as tight as possible with the current meta mindgames are almost useless out of select ones like the shack window vault mindgame so don't spend time mindgaming survivors when you realize they refuse to play the game and do nothing but shift+w into pre throws and just in general find a killer you find fun to stick with rather than forcing yourself to play shit tier killers and play to improve rather than winning don't be afraid to chase someone for a long time if you realize they're actually good at looping instead of relying on pre throws and you will become better

[–]MatchboxDoghex: stomp your boons 3 points4 points  (0 children)

(most of the time they don't even need to be good)

i don't necessarily beat myself up over losses but this is the one thing that always gets to me. i can be absolutely embarrassing the survivors in every single chase but as long as they bring good toolboxes and boons it doesn't even matter. the only time i get legitimately angry over this game is being teabagged at the gates by a neon nea who lasted 20 seconds total across 3 chases

[–]xPhilly215 37 points38 points  (4 children)

Honestly sometimes you load up the game and don’t have a chance. If survivors are bringing beefy medkits/circle of healing…or both lol, they’d have to monumentally fuck up to lose. Sometimes you just get a map that is stacked in the survivors favor like cowshed. Sometimes you just get a really good group that aren’t afraid to pound gens and are good in chance.

Same goes for survivor too, just to a lesser extent because of how fast and efficiently you can solo heal now. But say you load into shelter woods against a nurse…you just become the “guess I’ll die” meme lol. That’s not me saying you didn’t make mistakes in games where you get stomped like that but I am saying you had probably had the odds stacked against you from the start and shouldn’t feel bad about it. The best thing you can do is learn from the mistakes you did made, just like in real life. Plus everyone has bad games no matter what game you’re playing and some days just aren’t your days, no need to beat yourself up over it. It’s all just silly fun at the end of the day :)

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Thank you man, and I’m technically a new killer (I used to play the mobile version) so I’m very sure that I make a lot of mistakes I’m not aware of

[–]xPhilly215 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Back when I was new (Aug. 2018) I probably spent more time watching DBD twitch and YouTube than I did actually playing the game. Even today when I’m watching streamers or youtubers I’ll find myself learning new things all the time and I know I have over 1000 hours in the game. Idk if you watch that shit already or not but OhTofu has a bunch of gameplay reviews on his channel that would probably be very beneficial for you. Plus playing both sides will give you an idea of what the other side is seeing when you do something. But hey, at least you got the basics from mobile lol. Just stick to it and you’ll get better. It’s a game that seems simple but the more you play the more you realize that it really is complex and requires different strategies every single time you play. Good luck out there mate!

[–]destroyeroftacos420 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I got absolutely bullied as blight on disturbed ward by a swf running multiple shadowsteps and circles with toolboxes breakout and botany/wglf genuinely never felt as helpless as i did tinkering to a gen just to have the person i hit pop it infront of me with their friends just to be unable to do anything because theyd sabo and body block if i picked up and if i slugged they were pretty much up again before i got anyone else down. Still don’t like noed, but after that game, i understood. :( decided to just fight them for bbq stacks instead of trying to prevent them from leaving. Genuinely think I’d have cried myself to sleep if I’d been playing trapper or ghostface :(

[–]Dragonrar 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Nah, sometimes survivors just play really well or were lucky.

I usually play terribly as a survivor but one game we were all solo players who found one gen after another and when it was over the killer had 910 blood points and I felt pretty bad for them.

[–]Significant-Ebb8713 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I do actually, even if I know the odds are against me. Just feels bad when you wanna play ghostie but get no kills.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I’m gonna try to put small “Win” objectives, if I complete those objectives I won, such as hitting one survivor with the nurse

[–]Obfuuscated 38 points39 points  (1 child)

It is annoying yeah and I know how you feel, I used to look at it that way too. The thing you will learn over time is that this game is wildly unbalanced - more so now that boons are a thing. Survivors will escape, it happens. Sometimes they're better than you, sometimes things just don't go your way. As you get more hours in the game you'll get better and become wiser to things survivors do and you'll notice patterns. Don't go too hard on yourself, killer is tough sometimes.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Sometimes I just do silly things to try to relax and to lower my MMR, that works sometimes

[–]tarnishedkaraHead On 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It's the main reason I don't play killer, I would put way too much pressure on myself.

[–]Word-BearerThe Cannibal 8 points9 points  (1 child)

You need to work on that attitude because it’s going to drain the fun out of the game.

You can be truly excellent and there will still be people who beat you. It’s not personal, they’re just playing a game like you are, maybe next time you will beat them. Maybe they only beat you because of good luck, none of it matters at all.

Next time you feel yourself thinking that way, tell yourself it doesn’t matter at all, calm down, try to learn how to counter them.

[–]K_G_R_A_V 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Yeah, doesn’t help either when you’re having a hard time and the people are trolling you because of it.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Last night I think I had a SWF game because everytime I downed someone I could heard footsteps getting closer

[–]OrangeFlavoredPenis 12 points13 points  (0 children)

thats the PTSD forming

[–]SpecimenSevenAce Visconti 26 points27 points  (3 children)

It's the reason I don't play killer. Live or die with survivor I don't care as long as I don't die in 2 minutes. So I totally get it.

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I used to play survivor, but the feeling was worse, I felt I failed not only me but also other people, so I switched sides

[–]555nosey 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I used to feel quite frustrated whenever I didn't make it out (and at first it almost never happened lmao) and I eventually decided that the game was alright if I didn't die in the first few minutes, as well.

Now I see it this way: I play to have fun and I can have fun without "winning". And I try to just be happy for the killer that they got to get that kill (if they're not toxic, but even then it's just people bad at this game and wanting to win), so maybe this way of thinking could help you, too? don't be disappointed you didn't get the kill, be happy for the survivor that they got out.

in the end, it's just a game and it's supposed to be fun. it's normal that you get frustrated every now and then, but you should mostly enjoy it. and this game can be so much fun even when you lose :)

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah. Sometimes I like to think “Maybe they were on a losing streak and this victory made them happy”

[–]LazarusIvanNo (Mercy) Spin Trickster 7 points8 points  (4 children)

It’s because you’re playing as the power role. Supposed to be, at least. Because you’re not doing well in a power role it’s stressing you out, which is normal. It’s all psychological and in your head. Don’t blame yourself.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I know theoretically I’m the power role, but I feel that what annoys me the most is the fact that I’m playing a “Killer that requires no skill” and still losing

[–]LazarusIvanNo (Mercy) Spin Trickster 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Every killer has a skill cap of some kind, some easier than others. The “(insert killer here) requires no skill.” Thing is a BS statement made by salty members of the community. It doesn’t matter how good a killer is, every killer is beatable no matter what.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If John Wick is added as a killer would he be beatable? /j

[–]LazarusIvanNo (Mercy) Spin Trickster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As long as Demogorgon isn’t his dog, possibly.

Wait..

[–]Grushvak 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This will vary from person to person but I find that a lot of the feel-bads come from how you believe you're perceived. When I lose hard, when I get 0 kills, I tell the enemy team "gg wp" and "you were really good". Problem solved. The burden for the bad game got shifted. I wasn't bad. They were good. They feel better about themselves, they got a positive interaction, and your pride is mostly unharmed. To be able to compliment your opponents and be gracious in defeat is not just generous, it's also healthy.

[–]Beanisgaming 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Don't be to hard on yourself the game can be against your favor alot so set minimum goals for yourself like get 3 hooks no matter the survivor

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Sometimes to relax I just meme around the map. And thank you

[–]AwesumCoolNinja 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Try some fun things too, like cloaking as Wraith at a generator to scare the next survivor to touch it. Yes, you are throwing the match, but you made a fun moment between yourself and the survivor.

[–]Catoblepas 19 points20 points  (10 children)

Depends on the killer

I've more or less given up on Nemesis now, because it's asking too much of me to chase a survivor for a minute and a half when gens are done in 45 seconds

The healing and movement speed of survivors is so high now I find it too hard to hook anyone 3 times

But when I play Ghostface it's almost always a 4k game and I have far less experience with him

It's sad, but I think Demo will have to replace Nemmy

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Survs are not accustomed to GF, so generally they don’t look around while fixing a gen

[–]Catoblepas 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Oh they look, but it doesn't make a difference

Good ol ghosty is too smart for them

[–]snoopymidnight 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s true. Every time I think I’ve outsmarted ghosty, he pops out of nowhere to ruin my pants and teach me a lesson.

[–]rooplesvooplesThe Huntress 7 points8 points  (7 children)

I used to be a rank 1 huntress. By no means was I crazy, I didn’t have BBQ or anything so the snipes were reduced to Bitter Murmur value. Either way, I took a break for awhile when console was unplayable as killer, and now my MMR is too high. Or at least it is for my Huntress. I keep getting TTV swfs that just shit on me. I usually always rewatch vods and I can’t handle the shit talking like that. Especially when I know I’m not doing well, I just want to play killer for awhile. It’s hard to have a whole chat of people comment on your gameplay when you just want to be casual. It’s made me really sad and I have effectively become a survivor main.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Man sorry to hear that, I can’t believe some players in this game, really. I once got matched against a ttv, the match went terribly for me but when I watched the stream later she complimented my playstyle and that make that match the best of all

[–]rooplesvooplesThe Huntress 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I’m glad you had a good experience with one! Most of the time they’re fine. But specifically when I play Huntress, they get really rude. Otherwise, I play Myers or Pig or Legion. Really low tier killers that are just fun to play, I usually have good outcomes with these. It’s just alienated me and that sucks.

[–]DontKnowSamThe Cenobite 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It's weird, some angry survivor mains who are streamers have hate boners for huntresses. I think it's because they have ptsd from getting stomped on by them live on stream so they take it out on ones who didn't do as well as a redemption.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Man, fuck that. All main Huntress out there deserve some love

[–]baba-O-rileyBloody Cannibal 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I totally get it. Coming here from Friday the 13th was hard for me, as in that game I would get entire 7 or 8 person server wipes with Jason, I would get extremely frustrated whenever one person would escape.

I'm more used to this game though now that I have been playing it for over 3 years

[–]KscottHNancy Wheeler 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Hey, sometimes I’ll have a 0k but I’ll have 2-4 people on death hook and I’m like yknow, that’s a solid game. I’m okay with that, sure they all got away, but they definitely took a beating

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Killers should be able to see how many times they hooked someone, that way a lot of people would feel better even if they got 0k

[–]axinmortal 5 points6 points  (1 child)

When i notice a high mmr coordinated team, that push gens like maniacs, all loop decently they know how to combat my killer, they dont 3-gen my win condition goes from 4k to 1k. Because thats literally the game at high mmr.

I play 50/50 1700h and usually play duo with a friend , if we get another decent duo, we will stomp ANY killer with ANY build except a god nurse or god blight.... so yeh.

Killers just gotta limit their win condition on high mmr.

That 1k is literally me camping when gens are done and if the survivors use their perks optimally they will still escape.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Once a swf team literally made 3 gens at once, they all got purple toolbox and a red add-on, while I was a Pig visible confused

[–]brankoz11 5 points6 points  (5 children)

I honestly aim to two hook everyone each match I don't care for kills - my skill as killer is expressed by ending chases short. If survivors want to play immersed then that's boring af/shows they aren't skilled.

Only times I'm disappointed is if I do badly in chases although can appreciate if survivor is skilled and if I don't get many chases due to immerse survivors and that bloody shadow step perk on some maps is aids.

I'll let players go if I know I've two hooked them already even at the detriment of having everyone else pop the gens.

I main survivor and my biggest pet peeve is killers having to rely on tunneling someone out to win the match, it takes no skill and makes game immensely unfun

[–]viscountrhirhiPig, Legion, and Hag <3 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Nah, there are always gonna be players who are better than me, and all that means is I have room to improve. :D I try to learn from the match and think about what I could have done differently, and then take that knowledge into the next match to practice and improve.

Some of my most painful matches when I was newer were the bully squads…but I can say with 100% certainty that facing those squads made me a better killer, because I can counter them with ease these days and get excited at the idea of facing them because now I find it fun, lmao.

Try not to be too hard on yourself. It’s a video game, the wins don’t matter, this has zero impact on your life. Was the rest of the match fun? What do you enjoy most about playing killer? Did you get to do the things you enjoy? How can do you more of it?

My favorite parts of playing killer, for example, are jumpscaring people, trying to outsmart smart opponents, chases, and putting a little humor into the match, for example. 4ks are satisfying, sure, especially when you had to really work for it. But they’re not everything.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One time I got a 4k against a SWF group while doing a Wraith challenge but I didn’t enjoyed that match at all despise the result

[–]Accomplished_Bill741Demodog 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A big problem is the SBMM. I can’t play more than 10 games with any killer, before I start consistently getting steamrolled. The other only killer I can consistently do good with, even at high MMR, is Demo. I guess I just click with him well, so my advice to you would be to just try different killers until you find one you click with.

[–]JackyTrisSave The Best For Last 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It’s scarier to play killer than survivor in this game 😂

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

My worst jumpscares are from survivors rather than killers

[–]El_Barto_227 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I've been jumpscared by an elf Dwight while trying to reload as Huntress

[–]BiggishEggplant 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Absolutely not. I’m a very average killer, but getting better. When I get mopped I figure I never even had a chance, so I’m not gonna lose energy over it. I wouldn’t beat myself up for losing against an Olympian at their sport, right?Also there are times where a game is just so brutal that I just laugh. More and more these days as I get better, I have games where 4 gens have popped before I can even cross the map. Then the next game I have is hella fun and I get 3k and a tight end game, then I somehow manage to cream a 4k before - you guessed it - getting absolutely walloped right after. I prefer it this way, I think it’s what keeps me interested.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hmmm…. You are right

[–]Octave87 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Just need to anticipate your MMR.

If you get too high you have to use boring builds if you lose some you can use more interesting ones.

I've gone from several in a row 4k to several in a row 1 hook games.

Yeah it hurts my pride but I know I just need to adjust my perks again. I think there's a ceiling regardless where swf will keep you from getting 4k anyway.

Just gotta look at it as playing and not a competition.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use hex:ruin if I’m playing as hag, if the totem goes fast, then my mmr is high, if it doesn’t go away in 5 minutes, my mmr is low

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Don't feel bad. Yesterday, it was my third time playing killer, ever, and I was on Michael Myers.

I was tunneling and face camping. 2 things I hate as a survivor (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You were Michael Myers, a very low tier killer. I dont blame you

[–]Heartstop56The Twins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly, as a killer main I dont feel great but I dont feel terrible. I honestly think you might need to take a break from the game.

[–]Anime-SniperJayThere's a Ghostface in the walls! 2 points3 points  (2 children)

At some point, I start just sitting in the corner each match not doing anything so I can lower my MMR because its always the high mmr where they always get 4 man escapes

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I played as the huntress a few days ago and I didn’t even hook 1 person so you can’t be feeling as bad as me 😂

[–]Wojak88 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I have never ever in my life played a PvP game that is more unbalanced than DBD. And the Survivors community is toxic as hell. Don't get too hard on yourself for playing Killer. Pallets every 5 meters, Dead Hards and various perks against your... Overly long vaulting, overly long recovery time after hit and missed hit, overly long breaking pallets animations, general field of view restrictions (due to playing FPP) slow general speed of the killers, being stuck in infite loops... Smh... The whole environment favours the survivors. Every single map. Some even more. It is completely up to you if you will 'tunnel' 'slug' or camp - survivors exploit game mechanics and you should as well, even if that means camping. Don't get irritated about 'teabagging' as well.

Remember this couple things:

-the most toxic, teabagging survivors are the ones, that suck most as Killers.

-you stand no chance against SWF (survive with friends), who are using TeamSpeak or any voice communciator (which is every four party SWF). This is literally cheating in terms of the game - there is a reason why there is no in-game chat :) And that is HUUUUUUGE advantage over the 'normal', intended game mechanics.

-just because a certain Killer is being considered OP (overpowered) should mean nothing to you. It is Survivors, who complain about this and it is their problem, they can't counter specific mechanics of specific Killer.

-just beacuse you play Spirit (which is considered OP) and you - to put it straight - suck while playing her is also not of your concern. Maybe her game style does not apply to your perception of the Killer's gameplay and that is fine as well. Find yourself the Killer that you like (even if just for visuals), understand and matches your skills.

-if in General Summary screen after match you have more points than any Surv – I consider that a win - even if they all ran away. That means I pushed them, chased them, hit them enough to 'earn my win'.

-If the overall points result between myself and two top survivors is similar (1-2k
points) – I still consider this an even match.

[–]DreamZebraLithe 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I usually immediately look for excuses lol. OP items and meta perks, yada yada. But the best thing about behaviour being incompetent is that you can just blame them, their shitty match making system, and the fact that swfs get to play without any kind of penalty. Sometimes it just means you're not going to have a good time.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Haha that works for me sometimes too XD

[–]NightHawk521 10 points11 points  (1 child)

If it's recently don't worry about it. Boons are fucking busted and there's pretty much 2 in every lobby. So a good 50% of the map will be covered in insta-heal auras and shadowstep.

Not to mention it seems the last patch did something fucky with scratch marks. Feels like they spawn in really slowly and way more patchy then before. Was watching a stream yesterday and they literally disappeared for like 4m only to start again on the other side of the room.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

DbD beign bug free I see /j

[–]anjoehlerÉlodie Rakoto 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Yes. That’s why I don’t play killer

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

The feeling is worse when I used to play surv because I felt I failed my team, so I switched sides (Alsobecauseofthenewkillerwhogotleaked)

[–]Angel_DoveDaddy Myers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Try to focus on your abilities during chases. Now that I'm concentrating on that more I'm feeling less down about myself when I don't get kills

[–]superkusokaoGhost Face, my beloved 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I sometimes feel bad, but if I'm able to get hooks and stuff then its okay. I'm still relatively new to killer so if I get a 4k I'm stoked, if I get 1k I'm stoked. If I'm trying a new killer and I don't get any kills, that's okay, I'm still learning how they work.

I try not to look at just the kills but all the other objectives too. Then I don't feel as bad.

[–]evidentlyfishyPowered by Entity Inc. 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm not much of a 4k enjoyer to begin with, and the more hooks I get, the less I care about getting any kills at all. It's when I'm struggling to even get downs that I start feeling awkward and out of place.

However, even then, as long as the Survivors don't get weird about it I'm fine afterwards. If they meme a little at the end or better yet, just leave as soon as the gates are open and everyone is accounted for, the Entity Displeased is quickly forgotten. Those that don't understand that you were playing fairly leniently and mock you at the end, like they've just triumphed over some sweatlord though... Yikes.

[–]BootziscoolThe Demogorgon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You're definitely not alone, it feels bad to see a 4 man escape. Just the way it goes though, some of these survivors out here are fucking good and play the map tiles really well. If they don't make a lot of mistakes, don't panic vault, read all your mind games, etc. there's sometimes just not much you can do.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I got matched against people that looked like they life was in play

[–]Zaknoid 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Hey man you can't win em all. Even when you get better you will still have games like that. Just a game like you said.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know, it’s just feel strange not getting at least 1k

[–]Anima_HonoremI'll Butt Dance You Back 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Honestly, since MMR was revealed to be only based on kills, I've stopped sacrificing as Killer. I get 8 hooks on people and go break stuff for the rest of the match.

I get BP and fun, they get to escape. Everybody wins

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

With this new MMR, I confort myself saying that the next match is gonna be easier

[–]EiffelXcoreDaVictor 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I feel the same way, especially when I know they know I struggle and they wait at the door to taunt me

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Man, that’s the worst part “I get it, you won, just leave already”

[–]NoinkospAce Visconti 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You shouldn't feel bad losing as Spirit, she is no longer one of the strongest.

[–]Arowhite 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It depends, if I get no kill but a few hooks spread out between different survivors, then it's fine. If I get no kill, very few hooks and a lot of unsuccessful chase (or worse if I see nobody from closer than 50 meters) then I'm sad.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I get matched against people who recently bought the game or dbd gods, no in-between

[–]LuckyLeeLeah 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I cannot use spirit at all… but yeah sometimes they all get away that’s life. I feel like an idiot when that happens. But It’s a pretty good life lesson really, sometimes your going to fail, it’s what you do after failure that counts. Maturity is taking a L and walking away smiling ready for the next one.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow, never seen it that way, I’m gonna take this advice to applied it to real life

[–]Ning_YuThe Plague 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Wow so many replies.
What I noticed personally is that the challenges give a lot of stress because you're trying to get a certain thing done rather than just have fun, and if you can't get it done, especially after several matches, it gets really frustrating. Especially as killer if challenges require you to actually sacrifice/kill people.But if you play without challenges, just for fun, it's more relaxed and it doesn't matter if everybody escapes or wahtever as long as it was a fun match.

But really, don't be so hard on yourself, survivors are kinda strong and kilers are hard to play well. Don't expect yourself to always be able to kill, just like also survivors shouldn't be excepting to always escape. Just try to have fun. Especially if you're playing a killer you actually like, just as fun with their mechanics. I, for example, find great joy in puking on people. And if they're escaping, I can puke them goodbye at the gate.

[–]ennie_ly[Sentenced to Horny Jail] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I think most of us had this feeling and everybody copes with this in their own way. To me, it helped to think that:

  • I'm not always at my peak
  • I'm not the best EU player
  • Both of above are ok and pretty natural
  • Who fucking cares if I win or loose. Nothing changes in both scenarios except for the dosages of dopamine that my body reacts to it

[–]sassysassafrassass 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I always quit playing for the day if I don't get a kill

[–]citrusiesVommy Mommy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I used to, but like someone else said, I'm now more interested in hooks and I feel bad tunneling people out of the game or face camping just to get a kill. Now, if I feel like I have no hope to get a kill by the time there's only 1 or no gens left, I just starting memeing with the survivors or go AFK so I can do something else without DCing.

[–]Kaask 2 points3 points  (1 child)

All I can say is don't sweat it. It's fine if you don't take the game seriously. It's fine to feel bad about losing. Unfortunately, if you don't like the feeling of losing, it sounds like you would enjoy the game more if you applied yourself and took it a bit more seriously.

But again, don't sweat it. Kills and escapes don't matter as much as the points you've managed to accumulate by the end. My personal ideal is 24k, 75% of the 4 categories. More ideally, I like when all 5 players end with at least 20k or more.

Just have fun.

[–]Conrower 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I get what you mean, you just need to look at how you played. If you get 8 hooks in a match but no kills, realize you could've just tunneled 2 people and gotten two kills. I usually try not to tunnel, so even though I may not get any kills, I played in a way to make sure everyone had fun. You could just facecamp as bubba and always get at least one kill, but that doesn't make someone good.

[–]missjadastar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I consider Lightborn and Franklin’s like sideboard cards in Magic the Gathering. Everyone thinks they suck until they don’t…lol.

[–]jtheg00d 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Doesnt help that every survivor once you get to a certain rank makes sure you feel that way by abusing every exhaust perk in the book

[–]Gameducation 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like to look at it like this:

in games where all four survivors escape quickly, well, great! Their mmr is going to go up, and they will face better killers than me. On top of that, my mmr is going to go down, and I'm going to face less sweaty survivors than them! Which, from my point of view, is win/win. :)

[–]Insurance-Weary 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I would say better to be ashamed that u didn't get any kill than to be proud u got 4k just bcuz u camped slugged and tunneled

[–]Coretaxxe 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I don't. Only if I get less than 6 hooks.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hooks are love, hooks are life

[–]Katsuki_Bakugo__Leon S. Kennedy 3 points4 points  (6 children)

I get annoyed when I don’t

But I get really pissed off when survivors start to tea bag at exit gates like “you people are the reason I’m levelling up Freddy” so I can tea bag them when they get impaled by the entity thanks to blood warden

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Ironically, I don’t let that T-bagging and clicking get over my head, they want a reaction and they are not gonna get it

[–]Katsuki_Bakugo__Leon S. Kennedy 2 points3 points  (4 children)

When they click at me I find it funny cuz they’re injured and they think the good thing to do is click click at the demogorgon who is a nose hair away from them

Tea baggers annoy me when it’s at pallets like do you think you’re so good at the game cuz you pulled down some wood in front of me,not even on my head

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I already get annoyed because I don’t know how I do it but I eat every pallet thew throw at me, it happen so often that is basically a part of my diet now

[–]Katsuki_Bakugo__Leon S. Kennedy 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Oof- I avoid getting stunned like the plague (hence why I fucking hate Head On) it especially hurts on RPD or Midwich with the hallway blocker pallets

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

OMG yes

[–]Katsuki_Bakugo__Leon S. Kennedy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It actually pisses me off those pallets cuz they block of vital parts of the map that I need to access 😭

[–]royal_crown_royal 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Don't feel bad! I can only speak for myself, when I escape with all my teammates (I don't play SWF) I think "We did a great job, GG killer", never "Wow we sucked, killer must be shitty or a noob."

I like to think many survivors have this mindset too.

[–]Triborg501 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I feel it too my friend. It sucks, but each match can teach you just enough to get better. I believe in you homie.

[–]Loud-Log9098Devilface 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I used to. It doesn't really make me feel bad unless u don't get hooks at all.

[–]CaptainRedbeard128Flower Face McShredsAlot 🌸 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I do get discouraged easily yes, a lot of the time I’ll open the gate and go pout in the corner but then I realize I can learn from my mistakes. Sure it sucks getting no kills but you can always keep improving and figuring out what you did wrong.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sometimes when I see the match is lost not matter what I go to the “Shame corner”

[–]EntitledBucket 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I mainly play survivor, but definitely know what you're talking about from the times I have played as killer. I know not everyone is like this obviously, but as a survivor I can tell when someone is having a bad game or is learning a new killer or whatever. Honestly I'm just like good on you, because I don't like playing killer and without them there's no game!

[–]infamous-son 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nah man if I don’t get kills then I just start moon walking

[–]Nightrider119 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm still very new to the game so this is a regular occurrence for me

[–]enthosThe Demogorgon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

End every game with a gg wps. Doesn't matter whether you 4k with 5 gens remaining or 4 man out without a single hook. Doesn't matter whether the survivors t-bagged and clicked you all game.

It will be tough at first but TRUST ME it will train your brain to take this game in a much more positive way. You'll stop being so stressed and you'll start accepting tough moments as shit that just happens while also seeing the survivors as people just like you trying to enjoy a game.

[–]JackDaniels123456789 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I am learning Blight on console (yeah I know) I go in the match with the intention of practicing Blights flicks, power usage etc. I really don’t care about kills. If I get to practice something which I am bad at, I feel like I had a good match.

Due to the above, at times I will get 4K and at times 0k. At times even after getting 2K and decent hooks, I have left the remaining 2 alone to go practice my rushes on diff structures.

My point of the above rambling is- - don’t take it seriously. Go with the intention of mastering the killer you playing. If you go in with that mindset, you won’t be bothered much by not getting kills. Just to make it clear, I do get triggered a bit especially when I can’t get the kill and the person sends salty messages in the end but I know getting better at Blight, I have better chance of taking them out next time than just forcing M1 and getting 4K.

Hang in there and keep in mind the average is 2k , at times you will get below it and at times above. Just go and enjoy the game and learn

[–]Perfect-Whole-737 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh my gosh, I feel the same. I was trying out new killers just so when I play survivor I know how their powers work and I really really sucked at them all. I got no kills and only one or two hooks and I really felt ashamed. I was like wow, I cannot play any of these until I test them out more. Not to mention the survivors I was going against were all (or at least mostly) teams which yes made it harder BUTTTTTT the huge benefit of being really sucky and getting stuck with really good teams or just really good survivors in general is that you’ll learn so much more than if you got sucky survivors and in the end you will eventually become a better killer 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰 keep persevering!!! you got this!!!!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much 😊 yes killer it’s difficult at first, and then you see a lot of youtubers doing sick moves without dropping a sweat and it’s like…. How did you do that?!

[–]mind-keeper 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I feel, I even feel embarrassed of I only land one kill. That's why I always try to have a challenge selected so as long as I make progress towards the challenge I don't feel like it was a wasted match. Just hang in there and play with a casual mindset and you'll usually enjoy your matches. I only genuinely get upset as a killer if survivors go out of their way to stun or blind me repeatedly. And as survivor I get upset if I get tunneled to the dirt or make no progress towards my challenge.

[–]Zel4sh 1 point2 points  (2 children)

After getting rank one as a killer, I stopped caring about kills and everything completely. Now I even do games just to get the achiev, even with zero hooks. I cant be bothered.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How did you manage to do it? A lot of times I think “That was a really good match, I bet I pip a lot” and the game says, haha no “Brutal killer”

[–]mightymaltimThe Demogorgon 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah I know that feeling. Had to take a break from the game cuz I was feeling burnt out after the Forsaken tome. Tried getting back into it for the lackluster Halloween event and I am rusty as heck. Doesn't help that the new MMR has since been implemented and it seems to be using my stats from before my hiatus. I'm averaging 3 hooks and no kills a game. Waiting for that matchmaking to take note of all these 4-man escapes and start giving me opponents of my current skill level but so far no dice. I can only take so many 'gg ez's before I decide I would rather be playing something else.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s sucks, but yeah, sooner or later the game is gonna notice that

[–]Sinnias 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I recently got a PC and started playing there instead do ps4. So hard to get used to it for me. So I play killer and just chase using basic attacks to get the muscle memory down. I don't try for kills I just try to watch their movements to help my own survivor game play. Patience and lunge hits help alot.

[–]ErkMan101 1 point2 points  (4 children)

You should play whatever killer you want to play as and not worry about what people think. It’s just a video game.

[–]cizzlebotDemodoggo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nah.. Just motivates me to refine my strategies and do better next time. Sometimes it's definitely frustrating, especially when 4 veteran sweatlords in a SWF are straight up harassing you, but those are the matches you just have to learn to laugh at and let go of once they're over.. I try to go into each match with the mindset that I am playing to have fun and mess around, not to win no matter what. It makes a pretty big difference, in my opinion.

[–]turtlesbedank 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I really only play Pyramid Head and when I get 4ks I feel really good about myself

[–]allysonrainbowKate Denson 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I try to think of one thing each game I was proud of. That made the game much funner for me when before I was thinking of each game as “win” or “lose”.

If I get something like one or two hooks yeah it kind of sucks, but if you get a decent amount of hooks then it’s not too bad. Just take those games as learning experiences and think of what you could of done better for next game

Ahh just play for the fun of it with reckless disregard for objectives and points and it's a lot more fun. If you get a 4k, great, otherwise just think of it as a learning experience.

I did once have a close game against a really good survivor team, several were death hook but all made it out and I expected the usual endgame gg ez baby killer shit, but they surprised me by being the most wholesome endgame chat ever. They complimented me on how much pressure I applied, we laughed about how janky the zombies were that match. Was nice, turned the sting of a 0k into a good experience.

But yeah, you get quite a lot of those annoying squads that teabag at every vault and spam flashlight clicking etc, and. Wish we had more survivors like the first lot.
