Is this "tech" bannable? @Peanits
Someone got reported
Why would it be?
Don't really see why it would be.
If the survivors want to waste their teams time sitting under the hook like that while nobody is doing gens, i'd welcome it as a killer honestly. These poor killers just don't know how to punish disrespectful play like that.
No? Why would it be?
im pretty sure is not something supposed to happen, and is there since the last update, thats why im asking
Bug abusing (?)
It’s the BT’s player dream and BVHR has nothing against it. Move along.
No, it's not. You can hit them immediately after.
Was the removal of the old unhook tech intentional?
It's a consequence of a different change, so yes and no. No, we didn't set out to specifically remove it, but yes we know it's gone.
Bring it back, please :(
Then the question is are you guys planning on bringing it back?
Not planned at the moment. I'd love to see it back, personally. The little bits of tech like that really help separate the average players from the good players.
Well, yeah like hell <3
Honestly though, why would the killer even try to go for a hit there? Just camp. You have 2 players pinned down and there is no penalty since there is another survivor in range.
Not bannable in any way.
Good Lord, that must be the most obnoxious streamer I've ever seen.
Oh well, just another unfair exploit tech for "skilled" players to abuse and make killers want to uninstall.
"Is this tech bannable"? Is one of the most whiniest things anyone can ask, dude what the heck, why do people complain about nothing! They WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING?!?! idk man i dont think youre old enough to play this game young blood
Bumping this old thread to add follow-up question..
What if the survivor stays there for a minute or two in order to waste killers time and allow survivors to repair all generators?
It's not taking the game as a hostage since they can die on the hook and the killer can just leave to defend the generators.
But the killer cannot hit anyone but the hooked survivor in that situation. There is no way of hitting the survivor crouched there.
In my previous game I encountered a survivor who either checked if they can get hit or to tease the killer just by staying there for extra seconds before unhooking. And even after unhooking got away safely thanks to dead hard, so it's not a guaranteed that the killer gets to hit them and gives 100% safety to the survivor who unhooks.
Here is a video of the situation with player names hidden;
To repeat, this is a question of a scenario which no one has done before as far as I know, not even in this video. This is not to name & shame anyone, I didn't have an issue with what happened and had a fun game.
Oh sure, insult the guy for asking a simple question in a game where the Devs have already removed and punished players for doing pieces of tech similar to this in the past.
Please bring it back.
I share the same concern - I copy a reply that I made a few hours ago to @MandyTalk which was somehow comparing this tech with the Harvester one:
those two techs are not really comparable. The Harvester tech is a mobility trick that allows the killer to reach a position more quickly, but the survivor can still manage to move around the Harvester - in other words, neither the killer nor the survivor are stuck in a situation where if one of the two parties don't make a move the game is (momentarily) stalled for them.
The hook tech instead is a survivor making himself untouchable by the killer. This situation can, and will, be abused in several ways, the most dangerous being to troll the survivor on the hook: just use the tech and hope the killer will stay there to camp the survivor, while the two others go on doing generators. Eventually, the survivor using the tech will run away (maybe by using sprint burst, to avoid any hit whatsoever) and the team mate being trolled will die on hook. And no, that's not the same as "not unhooking a survivor anyway", since in this latter case the killer is free to go pressure the map and/or hit any other survivor.
Even if you don't want to troll the survivor, it's still something somehow similar to a hatch standoff: the survivor has always the upper hand, either the killer accepts the loss of the survivor on the hook, or he has to accept that possibly 3 to 4 generators will be completed by the time the hooked survivor die (...admitting the swf team don't manage to save him last second anyway).
Every situation where the game can be stalled with no counter play other than "ok, you won, I'll do something else" should be promptly addressed, otherwise let's just put back the first iteration of Legion online, it's the same thing: trade a lot of time for a hook.
Anyone that thinks this is remotely ok doesn't really care about the health of the game.
