Idea for Buffing ALL Killers

I have an idea that I feel could #MakeKillersGreatAgain. For the record I'm not a killer main or a survivor main. I play both sides equally. I've been playing since there was only 4 killers and seen the game change a hell of a lot. I honestly don't think killers keep getting "nerfed", I just think people have gotten really good at the game and it's time to change with the times.

With that said I believe all killers should have a 5th perk slot. I know, I know, it sounds ridiculous. But hear me out.

1. The whole point of the game is to be terrified of the killer. Not for survivors to feel overly confident because of a perk they have.

2. Imagine all the new gameplay and tactics that open up for killers. Tons of new builds to try out

3. It will slow down gens! I really don't think I need to explain why. But just imagine having some perks that slow gens AND still make you viable in a chase or tracking.

4. And my final reason is... You're a killer. Why do you have the same slots as a survivor? I get it, for balance (I guess?) But that "balance" is clearly NOT balanced.

At the end of the day I'm just trying to make all the killers have a fighting chance without picking the same 3 or 4 killers. I know it will kill the devs to balance that out because sure some killers will be OP. Some add-ons will be OP etc. But I do believe that some kind of 5th perk or floating 5th perk (something in the middle like you can only have a green perk there) is a step in the right direction.

    Honestly, I think it would be a decent step in the right direction to make killers more frightening and dangerous to go up against instead of being trolled. Apparently, the Devs are also interested in making all gen-slow-down perks unable to synergize with one another; so this wouldn't allow gens to be super-slowed by gen-specific perks alone if they go through with this attitude.

    Survivors have 4 perks -- and 4 people; that's 16 perks going against the killer and their 4 perks... and the Survivors perks are overwhelmingly 2nd chances or aura reading -- so giving the killer a 5th perk slot wouldn't 'break' the game, but would make it more difficult for Survivors to toy around with the killer as is the norm for many players.

    This guy gets it. You nailed it buddy. With all the perks, loops, coms, 3 hooks etc. I honestly feel like a 5th perk is what's needed at this point. If the devs are too scared, start off with a floating 5th.
