    Will there be any way to play on the old hospital map after the update? Even if it’s only available in KYF it’d still be nice so that you could see what the map used to be like.

    Now that Hex Ruin is more in line with other Hex perks in the sense that its impact is not immediate/it is a late game perk, will you do anything to make Hex totems harder to find? Most Hex perks are weak due to the high risk they get cleansed before they have impact.

    do you have any plans to alter gen speed?

  • bortolinhobortolinho Member Posts: 1

    Was wondering if there was any plan to change the delay of attacking after using shock therapy. Just my thoughts, but I think its kind of awkward in its current state. If you want to keep it though, what if the more madness levels the survivors are afflicted with, the cool down to attack decreases (if more survivors are affected with madness, the shorter the cool down). This would reward the killer for using their power effectively.

    If Ruin is in need of a tweak or change, would you consider making it like NOED? (ie. Activating after a condition is met) Or make it's power related to the number of totems left on the map. (ie. 5 totems up = 350% regression. 4=300%, 3=250%, 2=200%, 1=150%).

    Sorry I know this is long.

    What was the decision behind leaving the Doctor's Calm Affliction unchanged? In my experience, the most common reason anyone brought the Calm add-ons was for the increased TR, and not this effect. Even somewhat experienced players can tell if it's fake either through not seeing the Doctor visually or via the heartbeat not changing in intensity.

    Glad the Scrapped Tape is gone, Iridescent Queen is way better than the donut ring! :)

    Due to gen speed being quick in red ranks, are you planning on adjusting the timer? If so, from the statistics shown by killers performing better than survivors in red ranks with the current gen speed, do you have any ideas of how to balance it out for killer’s and survivors?

    Hello. Why didn’t they strengthen the “Overwhelming presence” and change the "Maple Knight" addon? Will they be changed in the future?

  • SupaSlay3r20SupaSlay3r20 Member Posts: 139

    Some of the people in the community are creating their own chase music for some killers. Is their any chance that you might use some of these in the game.

    Why were The Spirit, Doctor, Jane, and David chosen for the next Rift? What was the motivation behind those 4?

    Considering the recent designer notes about ruin, "The passive nature of the gameplay pressure it provides means that there is a huge amount of potential with very little effort or risk on behalf of ..," when will keys be nerfed?

  • RickyRickRickyRick Member Posts: 5

    Will the archives ever have lore/cinematics for the realms and maps, Like something about how Lery's became the place it was before project awakening?

    Greetings, my question is the following:

    Seeing that from the outside of the Lery's Memorial Institute there is clearly a second floor, why wasn't the map redesigned to include a whole second floor? I indeed know about the second floor on the treatment area of the map but I mean a second floor apart from that.

    With the Ruin changes causing gen speeds to increase do you have any plans to change keys due to how uncounterable they are in game? even if you dominate the survivors almost always two survivors can escape with little to no effort. For example even if you use franklins or just kill the person with the key it will always stay present in the game.

    I'd love to receive an answer about this, after the new ruin will pop in the game, it Will be matter of days (if not hours) to realize how unbalanced will turn the game.

    So if this will be the case, in how long time you would eventually plan a patch to re-balance it? because i am 99% sure that there will be an urge to fix this.

    Why change the doctor at all? He is a character you wont even find in red ranks. As I can see the changes to ruin itself might be geared for endgame was the design of its reform made to apply more pressure to the survivors because with most killers I notice they always keep a tight loop to that totem and that makes me wonder how haunted ground will be effected since it seemed very much to go hand in hand with ruin as a clever Russian roulette. Survivors break the totem ruin usually when another player gets hooked to put pressure and potential hook guarding off of the one on the hook so I as well as a few others that can see both sides of this coin are I'm sure curious as to how this will effect overall gameplay and not make killers feel as though most of their Perks are becoming useless.

    Are we ever going to see the killer & survivor hinted at in Tome I of the Archives?

  • underlord99underlord99 Member Posts: 1,030

    Now that you've tweaked one of the most common perks used by killers will you be tweaking any super common perks used by survivors?

  • AGMAGM Member Posts: 386

    Could we get a mid-chapter patch that focuses on tweaking some weaker perks?

    Some examples:

    Buckle Up; It doesn't help you heal downed players any faster so that you can even take advantage its aura reading often enough to make it worthwhile.

    Camaraderie; It seems like it would make more sense if it paused second stage entity progression for up to 34s if the killer is with 16m of the hook, as opposed to another survivor (because currently the killer can see the progression timer paused and knows to look for another survivor near the hook).

    Monstrous Shrine; Why does this perk still exist?

    Overwhelming Presence; Franklin's Demise is much better at denying item use, so could we get this perk reworked as well?

    Thank you to everyone at BHVR for this amazing game!

    Will killer updates include updates to their respective maps just like Doctor with Lery's?

  • Reaper_xxReaper_xx Member Posts: 173

    Have you ever consider using fan made music for the killers' chase music?

  • StardustSpeedwayStardustSpeedway Member Posts: 789

    With the addition of custom music to killers, what's going to happen to the current themes? One of the most exciting things for me as a survivor is the mystery of who the killer actually is, but with custom themes, part of that mystery goes away for me. Don't get me wrong - I love the custom killer chase themes and support them 100%, but I hope the current themes don't go away.

  • Spirit12B4Spirit12B4 Member Posts: 5

    Do you plan on buffing the louder killers like Oni and Demogorgon whose constant loud sounds and noisy cues tell so much information to the other survivors? Because their problems seem to come from the amount of noise they make with even their footsteps making it hard to mind game loops and the fact that Demogorgon has add-ons that don't really help him out too mich besides 1 extra portal and increased shred movement speed.

    Are you going to add more killer chase music?

  • EJmurdermainEJmurdermain Member Posts: 109

    Is the Gatekeeper changes working out and will there be changes to other emblems?

  • KernelzillaKernelzilla Member Posts: 58

    Why Snap Out Of It has priority over mend yourself? this gonna change in the live version or this keep as it is now? 

    (this happens in the old and the improved doctor's power)

  • FairP1ayerFairP1ayer Member Posts: 483

    With all Killers getting their own chase music soon, what will happen to the all the chase music that randomly plays for Killers and Survivors?

  • RepMetalRepMetal Member Posts: 6

    What are you guys going to do to help Set-up Killers like The Trapper and Hag now that Hex: Ruin is changing. What about Power-up Killers like Myers and Oni that have less time to build charge in the game?

    Are other maps going to be getting changes like the Lery's rework or will they be like the Badham rework?
