Just a reminder that just because you/your SWF want to goof off/meme...

…it does not mean that the Killer does (and has no obligation to join in) and you have no one else but yourselves to blame if the Killer just plays the game and kills you all and moves on to the next match. You forfeited your right to complain post match.

    As times gone on, I've come to be quite glad console has no end game chat. Whether you get dunked on or you dunk, you never have the drama, and the temptation to take the bait isn't there.

    It sad to miss out on the nice messages, but usually when you let someone go, the in game behaviour such as giving a little wave with an m1, or a little nod, says all you need to say, and is the reward in of itself.

    Because they whined about me not playing along in post game chat.

    Ok? Just go on and play the next game then. Really they only make themselves look bad and I'm pretty sure most of us would agree. That is not some super controversial take.

    It's a game, it's not that deep. I think you're taking things a bit too personally. People memeing around don't usually care if they die. I actually think they expect to. So sounds like a win win for everyone.

    If I had fun and make it to the exit line, I'll turn around and gift the killer my item.

    Nintendo Switch doesn’t even have the option to ‘reach out’ we are truly in solitude.. a bit lonely to be honest, sometimes I might even welcome a good old trashing message as acknowledgment lol

    I once had a match against a twitch streamer whose video I watched back after the game and I was quite shocked that they considered my character toxic!

    I am quite possibly the most feeble, skill-less and general potato in DBD but they didn’t like that I finished off a gen near them whilst they chased another survivor. Then when that survivor got downed, I used For the People (not with. Buckle Up) because that survivor was on death hook.

    I mean of course I can understand it can be frustrating for killers in that situation but the game is full of frustrations - but I don’t think these necessarily equate to being toxic so was take aback honestly. I finished the gen off because it was close to completion, I used for the people cos I had health states to spare where the teammate could have been sacrificed so used the perk at disposal.

    Playing to win is valid on both sides. Playing to goof is valid on both sides.

    The problem is there's no real space for the goofs to hang with just the goofs, and the comp people to play with just other comp people who wish to be serious.

    Then there's people like me in the middle who play some Killers/Survivor builds ONLY to be silly and have fun, and some Killers/Survivor Builds in a SWF ONLY to be competitive, and neither jive well with what I want. When I'm playing Shred-Only Demogorgon or a silly meme build as Nic Cage, I don't want to go against the sweaty 10k Hour Blight Main or SWF Team Six. When I'm trying to have a serious Cenobite round or play my aggressive generator build with my SWF as Nea, I don't want to go against people who only have 100-1000 hours and are still learning or running meme builds. That's not fair to the other side.

    I feel like the Modes are the solution, it's really hard to actually truly Sweat too much when the game says "no perks/no items/no addons" or "we choose these things for you". It evens the playing field. Did people sweat in the modes? Absolutely, but not nearly to the same calibre as I see in regular matches of DBD.

    I would just like my games to feel balanced and fair. I'm not THAT good a player. I'm maybe 1.3k hours. I'm not phenomenal, I'm not Ayrun or Otzdarva, I just want to be able to play what I like and still have a chance. And more and more, it feels like without the Modes? I never stand a chance, no matter how well I play.
