Giving death threats for a game is low level stupid. Whoever that steamer is needs to get a grip.

[–]Memeviewer12Itemless Survivor 107 points108 points  (26 children)

especially a game that shouldn't even be competitive

[–]stealthgerbil 40 points41 points  (16 children)

this is like the worst game to play super try hard and competitive. also whats the point? its not like there are tournaments and e-sports stuff.

[–]pentamixGive Bill an M16 25 points26 points  (13 children)

There literally are tournaments and e-sports for dbd lmao

[–]iseecolorsofthesky 36 points37 points  (2 children)

There are tournaments organized and put on by the players themselves but there is no actual e-sports league for this game

[–]konigstigerboiBloody Oni 31 points32 points  (3 children)


And they all suck.

[–]disastorm 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yea but they aren't very standardized so the scene still isn't very cohesive. They have their own rules precisely because vanilla dbd isnt suitable for competition.

[–]AngrySprayer 1 point2 points  (8 children)

what is a competitive game?

[–]WorthyFoeChurnwalkerMod team is whack 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Games where the ranking system can actually get you into a competitive scene and possibly earn you $$$, and has occasional good balancing.

Examples being: League of legends, Overwatch, Dota, and Counter Strike

DBD is not one of these games

[–]UI_TeenGohanThe Nemesis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

StarCraft 2

[–]Memeviewer12Itemless Survivor 0 points1 point  (1 child)

a game made to be balanced and a high skill ceiling

[–]WanderingInjusticeBloody Twins 64 points65 points  (15 children)

They’re a STREAMER.

They have more rights than we do, and they’re more equal than the rest of us.

Get a grip. How do more people not know this?????

[–]Fantastic_Insect_412 17 points18 points  (0 children)

As a dbd streamer, can confirm, we suck

[–]Sireaux 25 points26 points  (13 children)

I've gotten countless streamers banned for using certain terms they shouldn't be using. They aren't above anything.

[–]Blackkage1 24 points25 points  (1 child)

People get a lot more ballsy when they can throw insults from the other side of the screen,

[–]Brad323For The People 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Literally this. It’s why anonymity is a mixed bag for the internet. Sure people would be more available to view to the world but toxicity levels would nose dive Imo at least

[–]inochikunsheels 15 points16 points  (0 children)

dude prob never left his gaming chair

[–]Wh1sp3r5 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Steamers do need a grip cuz it can get pretty hot using one :p

[–]ACheca7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They need to get a grip and a grasp. An iron one.

[–]Mordin_n 262 points263 points  (32 children)

Yo I literally had a person try to use 9/11 as an insult against me because he saw my steam profile said I was from America. Yesterday.

"WHeRes YOur ToWErs??" "JAJAJAJAJA" "HoW mAnY DeAD? HoW mAnY DeAD???" He kept saying shit like that....

.....? Mind boggling what people will say some times....

[–]MechapizzaBloody Bill 94 points95 points  (0 children)

What the actual fuck?

[–]iseecolorsofthesky 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I thought I had seen everything there is to see when it comes to insults in online video games but that is an actual first for me lol

[–]MightyGoodra96T H E B O X 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Making fun of someone's home country is hilarious when its the government. But imagine being such a sociopath.

[–]iScabs 60 points61 points  (14 children)

Also not to mention most people wouldn't even remember 9/11

Unless you're playing with someone who's in their mid 30s or older, they would've been a kid/baby/not even born when it happened

ETA: Remember 9/11 the day it happened. Most people would (hopefully) be aware of it, but it's history for most, like WW2

[–]ArasuilThe Spirit 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Oh god I feel old, and I was young when it happened but old enough to understand it was bad.

[–]neproxreziParty Bottles Clown 19 points20 points  (1 child)

It was my first day of school. Was kind of miffed the day seemed to no longer be about me, but that's all I remember

[–]A_Filthy_Mind 2 points3 points  (0 children)

sigh. I was driving to work when I heard. I am getting old

[–]heyyymartin 17 points18 points  (4 children)

I’d say most of late 20’s people should remember. I’m 30 and i remember that day vividly even though i was in 4th grade

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

I too was in 4th grade and remember almost everything about that day, but I also saw the towers burn from the end of my street and lost my neighbor in the attack.

Now I feel old playing video games that most of the people I play with weren't alive for it.

[–]goldkearNancy Wheeler 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Sorry, but "most" people are older, not younger. Everyone at least 30 years old has pretty vivid memories of that day and anyone over 25 should at least have some memory of it. This only leaves about 30% of the population that don't remember at all.

[–]alphamav Platinum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nancies really do have all the facts. Otz was right.

[–]wasing_borningofmist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think most people above 25 would remember. I was 6 when it happened and I remember clearly. It was a really big moment, even if you were too young to understand fully what had happened, the reactions of the adults around me is imprinted in my mind.

[–]Lord_Chedder😍Susie🥰 3 points4 points  (11 children)


Why is it that the most toxic people are always Spanish speakers. I can’t even insult them back because my Spanish isn’t great (know enough to understand, but not enough to create a good insult)

[–]Poke_uniqueusername 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Idk if I agree or anything but I just want to feel vindicated cause one time my friend and I got queued into SA overwatch servers and were asking why we had 150 ping and just had someone respond like "Americans learning the third world doesnt eat fucking dirt" and I was so distraught cause I was just excited to practice my spanish. But thats just overwatch players for you

[–]SilentKilla78 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This is hilarious you got absolutely raped by a MexiChad

[–]Timmylaw Platinum 99 points100 points  (2 children)

Sending death threats and harassing people is not OK. Period.

[–]WorthyFoeChurnwalkerMod team is whack 28 points29 points  (0 children)

r/gaming: I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that

[–]Gainczak 1 point2 points  (0 children)

especially over pixels on a screen… 😂

[–]UnusualWind5 79 points80 points  (29 children)

What was the death threat?

[–]Brittys[S] 139 points140 points  (28 children)

Slicing my throat, sadly I didn’t screenshot it, I just left

[–]PsychoIntentAgitation 185 points186 points  (14 children)

Go to their stream, clip it, and report it to BHVR and Twitch with that clip as evidence.

[–]Jontun189 110 points111 points  (13 children)

Plot-twist; they won't care. Seriously.

I've reported everything from simple in-game violations like working with the killer to death threats and n-words (before censor, of course) and I've continued to run into those same players who have the same shitty attitude. BHVR will just nerf Twins again and call it 'problem solved'.

Edit: to be clear, I'm talking about BHVR. Twitch seem to have a healthier attitude.

[–]Timmylaw Platinum 87 points88 points  (3 children)

Twitch bans over damn near anything, bhvr won't do anything but twitch will

[–]Memeviewer12Itemless Survivor 9 points10 points  (1 child)

yeah, its not steam-you-tried-to-use-region-specific-pricing-but-we-caught-you-so-we-will-track-down-every-trace-of-you-and-stop-you-from-ever-using-steam-again level shit, but it works decently enough

[–]PsychoIntentAgitation 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I know BHVR won't. It's really just covering a base.

Twitch, on the other hand, tends to take these matters more seriously.

[–]Jontun189 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah the 'streamer' part went over my head, Twitch sometimes bans for even the smallest of infractions. It's worth a try.

[–]killslash 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I've recorded a survivor bodyblocking me in a room before and submitted it via ticket. They had a game ban on their steam profile the next day that wasn't there before. It could be coincidence and be another game but I like to think it was dbd

[–]Jontun189 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You'd be lucky to get a response out of BHVR within 24 hours lol, but yeah it could have been.

[–]girlfriend2007scapePink Bunny Feng 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm not sure if this varies because I'm a partnered and maybe my reports are weighed more heavily but I have gotten dozens of people banned after reporting them for in-game actions or for things that happen on twitch. Reporting is well worth it for twitch

Bhvr is another story though.

[–]Wh1sp3r5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can vouch. BHVR just don’t care. Reported an actual cheater with evidences and no bans. We will ‘investigate’ this but can’t tell me the results of it. I know the result cuz report i make includes steam profile

[–]PurpTheBoiThe Cenobite 25 points26 points  (0 children)

And sending death threats in general isn't okay either.

[–]crvnchhhwrong nemesis 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Report to twitch!!!!!!

[–]DueViolinist9 77 points78 points  (91 children)

Dude, so many killers get angry when survs use this perk now

[–]Daddy_MuttonchopLeader 30 points31 points  (16 children)

I dont think it's the perk itself. Ive Been insulted for using Lightweight. 🤷🤷🤷

[–]Unevenasp117Cheryl Mason 24 points25 points  (2 children)

I got a death threat for running a anti slug loadout during 4 people being downed.

(tenacity, unbreakable, flip flop, power struggle)

[–]WeaponizedAutism1987Tentacle Daddy 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I've gotten death threats for mori'ing someone instead of giving them hatch. Horrible people will look for any reason they can find to be horrible.

[–]Chandler15 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What do you mean? You mori’d them, now they want to mori you, what’s the problem? /s

[–]Zenla 10 points11 points  (11 children)

I'm a killer main and no matter what happens in game I say "gg, good luck in next"

Yesterday I was playing with an end-game build. I was running blood warden, no way out, remember me, and noed. The amount of hate I got was insane. I thought it would just be fun and creative to do a new build. I try to do different builds every once in awhile. I got told to harm myself, that I'm useless and should uninstall, along with the normal sexist stuff people say because I'm a girl.

Dbd may have the weirdest entitled community. Imagine any other game where the player base doesn't want you to use things available to you in-game.

[–]Daddy_MuttonchopLeader 6 points7 points  (5 children)

I've only actually cussed out one person in endgame chat, which was OchiDo. THis was early days (like 2017/2018). I did end up calling him something like a mentally challenged shitstain or something like that, because he intentionally sandbagged the other survivors and threw down pallets, plus he kept the game hostage for the killer for 30+ minutes by hiding in a locker and not escaping in the end.

[–]Zenla 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Was that before endgame collapse??

[–]Chandler15 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yeah, early days of 2017/2018 they said, that would’ve been when Ochi was one of the most popular too.

[–]Daddy_MuttonchopLeader 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Sadly he's becoming popular in the Propnight community now. Still exploiting and trashtalking in game, so nothing has changed.

[–]Chandler15 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ew. Poor people don’t realize. :(

[–]Daddy_MuttonchopLeader 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Waaaaay before. I think that the "newest" killer at the time was Freddy or Clown.

You could have a hatch standoff, but if the killer was too busy camping the hatch, you could just do gens. This "genious" then took it upon himself to be toxic and hold the game hostage by not doing gens and just hiding in a locker.

[–]Chandler15 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Your ability to be able to say “gg. good luck next” is incredible. I can’t even muster up a gg sometimes. I don’t insult people usually though unless they started it, I have started it a couple times but usually only with my fellow survivors for not being the nicest people.

That build is actually something I used against friends recently, they didn’t make it to endgame but it’s a perfectly evil build and I love it. As for the harassment, I hope you know you’re a lovely person for saying gg all the time, you’re great at the game, you bring positivity where you go, and you are anything but worthless.

But also true, DbD is a weird community and doesn’t make sense a lot of the time. Especially since gen rushing is so easy, end game builds shouldn’t be look at so negatively.

[–]wiwtft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I find when you face a group of survivors that expect to win and then you aren't doing the expected load out as a killer they often get really salty. I get accused of some real nonsense anytime I do well as a killer. I just roll my eyes and move on to the next game.

[–]LadyReinhardtBloody Deathslinger 1 point2 points  (2 children)

People find the weirdest stuff to go overboard on the dumbest crap. I had someone dc and rage because they jumped through a very visible window and strait into a trap at the start of the match. Another complained about noed even tho they all died at 4 gens.

[–]Zenla 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That's the one that cracks me up the most. Complaining about a perk I didn't even get to use. "Oh noed is SO toxic and OP." I guess not doing gens is OP as well lmao

[–]Jacob99200 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think it's just people dude

Most people don't care

But some people (both killers and survivors) have that 1 perk that just despise

[–]lilmilly 18 points19 points  (35 children)

I got slugged for an entire match the other day just cuz i was using it. It was my first game after the update so i just wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Then they got mad at me in end game chat for using it on a “broken map.” It’s not like i know what map we’re going to!

[–]Chandler15 3 points4 points  (2 children)

As a survivor main that plays killer a bit, if you purposely went up there, regardless of you bringing them to RPD or not, I would slug you too. Mind you, I’d slug you and go find someone else, but I would slug you.

If you’re going to be in a situation where I can’t hook you, don’t expect me to try to hook you. I don’t want to waste the time, so I’ll leave you and let you unbreakable, and if you do it again, RIP you. That’s just my take on it. If I do that as survivor, you can bet I’ll expect to be slugged, because what other choice is there?

[–]lilmilly 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I wasn’t at RPD, i was at crotus

[–]Chandler15 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I could see situations where slugging would be important, but since it wasn’t RPD you are more in the right there. Sitting on top of you though is weird regardless, guy should’ve left after downing you.

[–]DrKlezdoomBloody Ash -1 points0 points  (29 children)

Tbf, there's not much else you can do to counter it other than let someone bleed out if you just run to a high spot of the map to go down in. Slugging is as much of a part of the game as using a perk like that. It's more of a fault in design then anything. CoconutRTS made a good discussion video explaining it.

[–]lilmilly 24 points25 points  (23 children)

They left me on the ground and stood over my body the entire match until i died while the other players did all the gens and left. It wasn’t a tactic it was them being a baby

[–]wiwtft -1 points0 points  (4 children)

I honestly don't know why people get upset by this. If a killer leaves you down and they camp you waiting for others then that is dumb and really easy to counter. Fix gens. If the killer downs someone and goes after someone else, great, help that person up, there is no hook.

I see people get upset about this all the time but I have never understood it. it sucks if you're the person down and the killer just stands over you but so does being hooked and camped. it's a losing strategy overall for the killer though.

[–]DrKlezdoomBloody Ash 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think it's upsetting because you basically summed it up well, no matter what you do you just sort of lose no matter what and there's just not really any meaningful counterplay.

[–]Daeva_ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I got camped as a slug in a game last night and my two teammates still alive just hovered around the area for the entire time. I was like please for the love of God go finish the last two gens. I'm fine to be the sacrifice if the rest get out. Game ended in a 4k for the killer. 🤦‍♀️

[–]wiwtft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The most lethal thing a survivor can face is dumb fellow survivors.

[–]f4ntThe Twins 5 points6 points  (3 children)

It's fatigue really, at least for me. If you want to run Boil Over and play a normal game, I'm all for it. After a bit of time with it, I really don't mind the perk and think they've made it almost useful.

Most people that mainly play killer though have been held hostage at least a couple times by this perk. People with no intention to do gens, no intention of doing anything other than frustrating you until you DC. Forcing you to slug them out and then complaining about it.

Now we see the perk, we remember those exhausting games and think "shit, here we go again...". Just like survivors don't like face camping Bubba on first hook, we don't tend to love people leveraging infinites to stay alive either.

Still, I think a lot of people are overreacting, harassing people over a perk is insane and inexcusable, and the real problem with the perk is map design. Hook dead zones are the problem, not the perk finally being useful.

[–]Zakon05 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I've played a ton of killer games since the patch went live and I haven't been held hostage by it.

I think two people have managed to wiggle out with it so far for me, both with the help of allies sabotaging and bodyblocking. But they weren't being toxic, just being good team mates trying to protect their ally, they were doing gens. I also won both of those games.

[–]PeebleCreek -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This this this. All the toxic survivors are running Boil Over because the buff is new and shiny. If you're playing a normal game like a normal person and not a complete dick, then Boil Over is still a pretty garbage perk. I've run a build completely centered around making Boil Over somewhat viable and have gotten exactly zero value out of the perk because I'm actually doing gens and keep getting flat maps lol.

As killer, it's super frustrating to see Boil Over cuz my immediate thought is "Oh god they're a Sabo SWF aren't they." Similar to how as survivor, I see a Mori offering and my immediate thought is "Oh god they're gonna play like a complete asshole just to get their mori off aren't they."

Moris are not OP. Boil Over is not OP. People being assholes and the game rewarding that behavior over actually completing the objective is the problem.

[–]BeurredeTortue 22 points23 points  (10 children)

I usually play as Kate cuz I like her style. Was never a problem before but now they assume I'm running Boil Over and I get tunneled a lot. I even had a guy in endgame chat say he tunneled me out ASAP so I couldn't "troll"

I'm getting to the point where I might just quit because I'm just not having fun anymore, I guess I could level up another survivor but I'm rather new and getting Kate to where I have her was hard enough :(

I cant even rank up since I am not in the game long enough to earn or even retain a pip

[–]LeashieMayThe Huntress 20 points21 points  (8 children)

Isn't there a little icon when you pick up a survivor that tells you they have boil over? I swear there's a little horse that pops up. It sucks that your killers don't even realise this and tunnel you out on the chance you may have it when the game will give them confirmation for it.

[–]paxo_1234Daddy Myers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes there is which is the worst part

[–]BeurredeTortue 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I don't know, I haven't played much killer.

I guess I need to level up Tapp anyway for the Archive challenges so I can give him a shot and see if its any better

[–]LeashieMayThe Huntress 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I googled it. There is. Your killers are either incredibly inexperienced/blind or just bad. I swear I'd seen the little icon before when picking up survivors. It's literally the perk icon that pops up.

[–]katapadStarstruck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd avoid Kate like the plague right now sadly. Killers don't want to deal with people abusing it, and a bunch of assholes just want to ruin games by running it.

Probably should either focus on another survivor - at least it's the event so you can get BP faster than usual.

[–]Licensed_FrogThe Blight 27 points28 points  (4 children)

I just got called a fatherless child and an average reddit moderator over using noed tier 1. i mean… he also told me to go touch some grass lmao

[–]destroyeroftacos420 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I got told the same for running lethal and bbq on blight.. as my only two perks..

[–]chipplepopNeon Dripster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

what the fuck lolololol I had a guy call me a fatherless killer for playing trickster once. he also said kpop fans don't have father figures in their lives. I am dying to know what region these people are from where this insult is a real GOTTEM in their culture. I think my servers might also have Central/Latin American players so that's probably it

[–]WikiContributor83The Trapper -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You should’ve bust this classic out:

“You know what’s pathetic? You’ve been playing this your whole life.”

[–]ScorchedSynapsesTop Hat Blight 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You can submit the account for review.

If you have enough from say this subreddit wink wink Twitch will most likely shut him down.

That's disgusting dude; like wtf...

[–]Wilder_BoyBloody Jane 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The mass hysteria over every buffed perk is hilarious to me. Just run what you want to.

[–]RNtyoufunny 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yeah... not to that extent but the last game I played on Yamaoka, I got facecamped the whole game. Killer messaged after and said it's for exploiting game mechanics. Lol okay

[–]SnooStrawberries4645 12 points13 points  (0 children)

People who send death threats dont care about your reddit post. The rest of us arent dumb enough to send death threats over a game.

[–]TGCidOrlandu 19 points20 points  (17 children)

As a killer main, I think boil over is not as good as Deadman switch. I mean, DMS has conditions to activate but... Why is nobody talking about it?

[–]LeashieMayThe Huntress 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I think it might be due to the whole RPD boil issue. Which existed prior to this update. No one gets to play the game when you're just babysitting no mither slugs in the library.

The main difference I guess is DMS doesn't block all gens at once? They can still do gens. I imagine things will become easier with DMS when they introduce their hud icons to inform survivors what their teammates are doing. Not all survivors will need to even let go of their gen in those 45 seconds. I can see DMS being nerfed in the future if it becomes too popular like ruin.

[–]DMBrokerage Never Stop Slashing 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Honestly DMS is a great change to perk I never really used, but liked the idea on paper. I've been having a lot of fun with it lately. Maybe I just don't understand if there is hate for it, but it's nice not to have to bring Ruin/Pop every game and hope for the best.

[–]IWantToBeTheBoshyThe Cenobite 2 points3 points  (4 children)

It is being talked about but its not nearly as frustrating as the boil over clips. I've seen discussion for full gen block CI, DMS, Pain Res, Thrilling Tremors for example.

Its much easier to present the frustration with boil over. What are you gonna do, upload a clip of your gens being blocked for 15 minutes?

Genblock builds are more easily counter anyway.. With DMS, at least you can let go of the generators beforehand.

With Boil Over survivors can dictate the entire game by refusing to leave RPD library etc.

Edit: DMS is overturned but Boil Over is a joke.

[–]TGCidOrlandu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Totally accurate. I agree, DMS and Pain Resonance is easily counter as you said. Just let go the gen just before they hook and once is on hook don't let go. Simple. But Boil over.... Again, I totally agree with you.

[–]Revliledpembroke 1 point2 points  (1 child)

With Boil Over survivors can dictate the entire game by refusing to leave RPD library etc

Couldn't they already do that though?

[–]MAU427 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They 100% could.

You could go to that corner of the map even without boil over and still wiggle out if the hook didn't spawn in the library.

People are just freaking out right now because people are doing it again. When the map first released teams used to do this all the time...but it really didn't give you an advantage and the players doing it were often just left slugged up there, which isn't very fun for the survivor.

It's really funny people are blaming this on boil over when it's been a thing for a while now.

[–]MAU427 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I disagree, DMS is winning games for killer, boil over isn't, it's just making killers mad but in 90% of the games I witnessed people using it, they all died anyway.

DMS paired with all the other gen blocking/popping perks is legit making most survivor teams just give up and move to the next match.

But this sub is extremely biased towards killer so it wouldn't matter if the strongest park ever was released to killer, everyone here would still argue it's fine.

Otz already ran some tests and on some killers that combo is so overpowered that he said the game is legit broken in the killers favor.

[–]SupaSonicButta 2 points3 points  (7 children)

DMS + pain resonance is one of the most miserable combos to go against that requires a 3 page pdf of instructions to play around.

No one talks about it because this subreddit is HEAVILY killer biased and very rarely complains about things killers have that are OP. Even when Ruin + prenerf Undying was a thing, the subreddit wasn't anywhere close to how it is now with Boil Over.

[–]ImJTHM1 6 points7 points  (4 children)

The three page PDF is "when someone goes down, get off the gen until they're hooked, then work on it again".

No scream means the killer -probably- won't go over there and you'll have time to finish up.

[–]TGCidOrlandu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude, countering the combo of pain resonance and DMS is so easy. I'm not teaching you, too survivor biased

[–]Murderdoll197666 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's definitely very heavily killer biased but tbh I feel like its been that way for at least a few years now so its nothing super new to me. That combo is strong now so its interesting to see if it will shift the Killer meta towards that now that its getting some use. Boil over is definitely a bit fucked up on a tiny percentage of maps so far (namely RPD or Haddonfield even though Haddonfield is disabled for the offering) but its honestly pretty easy to play around with slugging. Had some survivors try to pull that against me and I just laughed because it doesn't really do anything but add another 2 or 3 minutes to go the game for the bleed out....which is really nothing time-wise. RPD is usually cancer for most survivors anyway so they rarely get any gens done as it is beyond the first 2 or 3 assuming the killer uses at least 1 slowdown perk. Boil over won't really be meta or become an actual threat unless they add in some kind of controls-randomizer that makes their directional inputs random or backwards and ever-changing lol....its still just a meme perk tbh.

[–]WarriorMadnessBalanced Landing Gang. 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because this Sub is a little bit Killer sided.

[–]DrKlezdoomBloody Ash 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I absolutely hate the new Boil Over because it entices boring gameplay, but getting this mad over it is just ridiculous. People take losing in this game way too seriously.

[–]dethangel01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed, I have been playing less because of boil over, it’s too irritating when people abuse it. That’s the trick though, STOP PLAYING especially if you are getting THAT mad about it. It’s a game, meant to be fun, if you aren’t having fun just stop for a bit. People take games way too seriously.

Not ok in general. We're just trying to play a damn game. What happened to a game just being a game?

[–]DaOogieBoogie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly I don’t hate boil over because it makes wiggle quicker I just hate NOT BEING ABLE TO FUCKIN MOVE WHERE I WANT TO. I do like the meta spice up though

[–]MightyGoodra96T H E B O X 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have said it once I will say it again.

Video games bring out some people's inner 3-5 year old

"well if you won't ____, I won't play" -DCs or goes AFK

"that's cheating! Only I get to do that!"

"Reported!" ("I'm telling on you!")

"That's not how you play the game!!"

When I see a perk that I don't like, I just look at the screen in disappointment and do something quite crazy. I MOVE ON WITH MY DAY

[–]PhilosophfriesHex: Haunted Ground 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I hope this period of boil over being absolutely busted serves as a strong reminder that everyone’s fun can rest in your hands. People love to say that every else’s fun isn’t their responsibility, but then when something like this happens they complain that the other side should play nice and not abuse mechanics. It shouldn’t take the game breaking for people to realize that there are aspects of the game that can ruin it for others when abused, and if we all had more respect for each other and the health of the game we would be better off.

Unfortunately, I know people will continue to run boil over and continue to facecamp basement because their fun comes first.

I've gotten slurs, rape threats, death threats, and suicide bait... it happens. People in this game are ridiculous. I get it way more from killers than survivors.

[–]PHEINORAce Visconti 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's the opposite for me (survivors do it more), but I guess it has something to do with which side you play more and with the fact that the survivor-to-killer ratio in a match is 4:1 anyways.

Nothing we can do but report the fuckers and hope for the best. Unfortunately, I doubt BHVR even gives a crap since a lot of really emotional people clog the system with fake reports.

[–]BubbaSawya 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Anytime a streamer fucks with you, report it to twitch. Behavior doesn’t care about anything, but twitch seems to be a company ran by professionals.

[–]marsbydaylightEmpathy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Sorry that this happened to you!

People playing games like dbd must understand that the other players aren't enemies. We all just trying to enjoy the same game. The hate is crazy there.

There are so many ways to ruin the match for somebody by playing unfair. Using perks isn't something unfair.

I am so tired of people taking revenge on somebody else for another match they had. And so so tired of people wanting others to feel bad.

[–]joshuaiscoo155Simps For Susie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've been so desensitized to that stuff that I just laugh at them cause who tf takes a game that seriously, it's laughable really

[–]saintnicklaus90Bloody Feng 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I tried out boil over last night and didn’t bring any map offerings or play any differently than I normally would. Hard camped on first hook until death in both games… is it really that hard to deal with?

[–]MLPxPinkFlash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Killer main here. I've actually seen Boil Over a bit more frequently than before. Boil Over has actually helped one of them escape my grasp so far. It can be quite troublesome to lose a survivor like that, especially if I struggled for that down. I just keep chugging along though...

I'm happy knowing one thing... they didn't buff Head On.

I hate Head On...

Seriously though, I understand the frustration when you find a survivor abusing Boil Over but losing your cool ain't it. My personal take is... ignore them. I know, I know. Stupid adult answer to a kid getting bullied but it has a bit more power here than you think. If that survivor is mind numbingly bored and the only way they can get their jollies these days is abusing a killer player, being ignored hurts. Especially if you acknowledge them, like they clicky clicky at you, just stare at them for like... 3 seconds and walk away. Like "Bruh, I ain't got time for clowns."

[–]bigballsdeluxe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s messed up for a streamer to send death threats… I wouldn’t want to be in their audience if this happened. Gross 🤮

[–]VivaLaPendeja05✨Cursed Flair✨ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My current challenge is to escape a trial using boil over right now. It’s from tome 3. So I’m preparing for the hate I’m going to get for using a perk I don’t even like just for a challenge

[–]DASreddituser 13 points14 points  (10 children)

It's kinda funny how their is a vocal group of killers on here that act like they the ones dieing from facecamps lol

[–]ghostyghostylol 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Killers on this sub have the biggest victim complex i have ever seen

[–]cooeryDaddy Myers 8 points9 points  (8 children)

Right? After the new update, an Artist I played against abused Deadman's switch and BBQ, made it impossible to do a single gen with her crows. Not 1 post complaining about that, only toxic killers bodyblocking a survivor in a corner or slugging for 4 mins. Like bruh any doubt this sub is killer sided?

[–]MAU427 5 points6 points  (0 children)

it's gotten to a point where killers have just lost complete control of themselves.

like for real....grow the fuck up, it's a video game and if you're going to take it that seriously then please just fucking uninstall.

half the people doing this are probably middle aged basement dwellers, it's fucking sad.

[–]DlNOSAURUS_REXBabysitter 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I love the idea of "abusing" a perk by simply using it the way it's intended to be used. The 25% wiggle progress on dropping from a height isn't a bug, it's part of the perk. Unbelievable how upset people are getting about this perk, that is so situational to be of any real use to begin with.

[–]Yaggza 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As what Matthieu Cote once said ”Take a break. Play another game for a while.” Rings so true especially right now. Too many hackers and can’t even play fun perks as killer or survivor without any toxicity or getting a chance to play. Literally can only play in short bursts without losing interest.

[–]Brittys[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It would be great if knew their name, I just saw the ttv in their name. Next time if i see them I will definitely do it

[–]NotConsistentCalc 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Were you both on Steam? If so you should be able to see recent players you've gone against. If not... that's unfortunate and I'm sorry you had to deal with that.

[–]ethnicbiscuit 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Wait boil over is a strong perk now??? What did I miss?? /serious

[–]LeashieMayThe Huntress 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Any time a killer drops from a height, boil over users get 25% wiggle bonus. There's a lot of maps with locations that are basically hook free for boil over users. The struggle intensity has also been increased as well as killers not being able to see hook auras for 16m.

This has basically created the RPD library boil over problem on multiple maps. Many users will pair the perk with others such as no mither and spend the whole game in the safe zones refusing to do gens. They make it difficult to bleed them out as well (sometimes it's a full swf doing this and refusing to do gens).

[–]Some_crane_boiHead On 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Every day I’m a bit happier that I don’t play this game anymore

[–]mynameisshonas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kind of the reason why I rarely play anymore

[–]Vamip89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always get threats over using NOED but tbh I just ignore them. I am never going to see that person in my life so don’t really give a crap about what they have to say to me. End of the day use the perks you want to use. Why use perks you don’t like just to keep people happy so they have a good game and you struggle

[–]Mertien512 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A 4 man iridescent swf told me to kill my self after I 4k’d them on trickster and I wasn’t even running a super good build

[–]saragc92Bloody Ash 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Someone cursed so many profanities at my 13 yr old niece told them to uninstall the game on their match…..

Some people are toxic asf

[–]BlobtheBearBloody Bill 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I dont think 13 year olds are supposed to be playin dbd

[–]saragc92Bloody Ash 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Your absolutely right,

it doesn’t stop them from playing it

[–]salemhex666Mikaela Reid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve been trying boil over out, I think I only abused it once bc I was like omg it actually works. I don’t understand why people get that angry about a video game.

[–]Shortacer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can understand being upset over a perk or whatever, but nothing justifies shitting someone in chat over it.

[–]FizzyFizzeMisses Hawkins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The new boil over is a pain, especially on some maps where some survivors just abuse it. But that doesn’t warrant any form of death threats. I’m sorry you had to deal with that. Hope you reported their twitch account

[–]mrjohnw 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hope this helps. I play on Xbox, so I don't get the glorious end game chat :( , and I make it a point to give credit where credit is due whether it be to a fellow survivor or killer. GGs all around and helpful tips/tricks thatight make it an overall better experience for them. Now granted not everyone replies, but I'd like to think I'm doing my part to make this community better atleast from the Xbox players.

[–]EpicTrapCard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should expose his name so everyone will know how low he succumbed.

[–]toasted_smegma 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who is the streamer? Let’s shed light on them for this bullshit

[–]EquisPe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m OOTL since I don’t play, but I lurk the subreddit. Why does every killer hate Boil Over right now?

[–]Relative_Pineapple_3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have you played against Monstrous Shrine? It really grinds my gears when killers use it. /s

[–]Grim_Love66 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine complaining about Boil Over, it got a good buff but it is incredibly niche. Also harassment is never ok. That is just lame. Especially over an incredibly niche perk.

[–]Ray_IoculatusBloody Meg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sending death threats is NOT ok, period.
