Which do you prioritize? Playing to win or playing to have fun?

Play to win - whatever it takes to secure that escape / get that 3K or 4K. More likely to tunnel/genrush/use meta perks.

Play to have fun - play the game for pure enjoyment regardless of the outcome of the match. More likely to meme/give hatch.

    Where is the option to get rid of tome challenges no matter if I win or have fun in the game? ^^

    I play to win but without using scummy tactics such as camping or hard tunneling. I give hatch often.

    Yep... same

    I play killer very chilled and let a lot of survs go.

    Surv i have to play normal. I play solo Q and a bit offensive so i die often.

    I'd say play to have fun - but man, that would be setting yourself up for being extremely frustrated and in an extremely bad mood.

    ... Though, playing to win is just miserable too.

    Atm I opt to play with friends while hanging out in vc... which I suppose is playing to have fun? With the friends, that is. Not with the game.

    I play to win as survivor and I'm playing Survivor basically all the time, but when I'm killer I play for fun

    It's tricky because I always go into a trial to do well, but my aims change each trial. Perhaps the randomizer has given me a rare perk I want to learn and get some use out of, a challenge I need to complete, or even for the fun of watching the endgame screen of a 2-3k where everyone has meta and I have Deathbound or a selection of other weak stuff. Sometimes, if the trial is way too easy because of mmr I'll 2 hook everyone then let them all escape.

    Whatever I choose, it's fun first, always. Even when I go into a trial with the intent of a 4k, it's never going to be through tunnelling and camping as the majority. There is nothing fun with that; only stress.

    Playing to have fun

    As long as I get a decent amount of blood points, I don't really care if I win or lose.

    I like having fun... but a 3rd option would be even more preferred: win or fun, it doesn't matter, just not toxic.

    I don't really care if I win or lose as long as the match is fun and the opposing side isn't being extremely toxic.

    I play however the Survivors do. If they're competitive, I'm competitive. If they chill, I'm chill.

    There pretty much is no such thing as "Play to win" for the solo survivor anymore. Since you will just be tunneled out of every match anyway, playing for fun is the only way to go.
