That's all I play, I think most people on here don't play it because they have no patience and like fast paced/instant gratification gameplay.  If you get killed in Survivors at the start of the match, your a spectator for the remainder of the match, that's just too much for some people to tolerate.

Nah.

 

It's because the game mode sucks.

I personally don't play it, because in comparison to the other 2 modes, you're playing substantially less. In extreme cases, you either die right away and are forced to watch someone else play, or wipe the enemy team and finish the round in less than a minute.

 

and in most of the "good" games of survivors I played, it turned into a stupid hide & seek  game of look for the coward hiding in a corner of the map for 2 minutes.

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

In the end, Horde Mode is the best mode in the game.

^BINGO^

Well its not that bad, but I prefer SR and INT. Since I have limited play time (1-3 hours a day), I'll play what I prefer. If a teammate wants to play it, I will, no problem. But not for long.

Can Suvivors suck a golfball through a garden hose?

I do play Survivors. Only it's called Supply Raid.

The names and structures of the two modes are the complete opposite of each other.

The only thing people do in "Survivors", is run for the box, to get supplies, in order to craft a molotov. Sometimes two of them. Couple that with a/multiple crafter dudes, and you've got yourself a controller throw in the wall, and a boring'' spectating session of hide and seek. If you're lucky, it sometimes evolves in peek-a-boo. 

And no, playing in a party bares no exception.

Back in the day, before the patches, the losing team was bombarded with parts and supplies because they...were doing bad? Such jokers, these naughty dogs.

Haven't touched it since.

Saying "Survivors" is a mode where you can only win by outsmarting your enemies, is awfully amusing.

"There is the moral of all human tales;
‘Tis but the same rehearsal of the past,
First freedom, and then glory — when that fails,
Wealth, vice, corruption — barbarism at last."

WANT that to be true, I really do. But it's not. It's just not.

I mainly play supply raid becuase I **bleep** hate camping. Survivors and Interrogation is full of camping. Hiding with covert 3 waiting to chuck a mollie at someone is boring. 

 

I would love surivors if they took out all the 1 hit craftable bull **bleep**.  No more mollies, bombs, or boards.
