Boon: Exponential allows survivors to recover 90% faster at Tier 1 and survivors can pick themselves up from Dying State.
I may just quit playing killer once this goes live. 🤦🏻♂️
Hm. Seems pretty irrelevant. Super conditional version of UB, with extra counterplay, don't anticipate that getting much use.
Should’ve named it boon unbreakable.
I think is a good idea Im starting to see what they're going for, this is their way of breaking the meta up and forcing survivors who run boon perks to run perks complimentary to them to get a desired effect and in doing so breaking up the same ol build survivors always run, sure a few changes could be tweaked here and there but overall I like what they're doing
So a better unbreakable?
Seems like boons will just be better versions of existing perks
Free unbreakable within a 24m area? Yeah, super conditional…
Well if they're near this boon totem, you are also in that area. So it shouldn't be too hard to hear/find the totem.
I'm more worried about the killer perks tbh.
It’s really not broken. It’s situational if killers just don’t slug.
It's works only within range and it broadcasts itself. Seems pretty bad actually. If the survivors goes down in the AoE, chances are they got chased there and the killer heard the boon. It's getting snuffed out before standing up.
Considering Unbreakable itself is -actually- free, as opposed to requiring a 14+ second investment that could just get snuffed before you can get up.
If you get UB'd more than once by this thing, that's 110% on you.
It is conditional, though, you have to be on the ground in range of the totem.
Or snuff the totem when they slug, they’ll probably hear it if it’s it range.
Oh no, killers have to hook survivors instead of leaving them on the ground...by a boon...that had to have been lit previously with a 14 second action...in a limited range...with an audible cue.
So killers can't injure everyone to slowdown the game and they can't slug to slowdown.
What are killers supposed to do know when survivors rush gens?
Wait until you see her power. You can scout and even injure people working on gens from across the map. Also, hold W meta times 100. Looping is a death sentence. Hilarious.
This is a very situational Boon unlike the other two big overreaction
Everyone have said this about CoH. "it's not a big deal, it's not even strong enough to be meta" and it's META, deeply, more than any other perks lol.
So now, someone that has CoH + this new perk will offer a better version of self care to the whole team and an equivalent version of unbreakable for the whole team but ye it won't be OP...
Some people just don’t think about the ramifications.
Even if they do it's still bad. Either you are already in the area of its effect when you are downed, in which case the Killer can likely hear it already or will when they leave the area to leave you downed, and then they can just break it. Or you need to crawl into the area, during which you can't recover unless you also run Tenacity.
Third option is that someone activates it near you, but in that case they could just heal you up normally instead.
I don’t see myself running this perk, seems useful but if i’m slugged far away I gotta crawl all the way to the boon radius.
Imagine a high MMR trial with two survivors equipped with CoH and the new boon... Half the map = unbreakable + self [email protected]%.
What a joke. BHVR devs clearly don't know where they are going.
They are clearly killing the game, mark my words. On this track, next summer the game will be dead without any killer left.
Without mentioning that the totems were a tool for the killer to gain some time and now it became a survivor tool as no killer runs any hex perks anymore lol.
So they don't need to cleanse them but now they have OP perks with them 😂
Yikes. Are you kidding? o.o This game is really survivor sided. I struggle now trying to have fun while these survivors are playing everytime with meta perks. Ds, dh, unbreakable, circle of healing. And if they die=DC. I don't want to be forced to play with meta perks, I just want to have fun. Still, this boon is ridiculous lol. And I play more survivor...
Apparently they REALLY want to encourage the killer to hardcore tunnel
Yup, i'm starting to hate those devs' decisions, a really deep hate :
I won't say more but believe me, i have many unpleasant things to say.
Yep. I predict a heavy increase in "killer tunneled me off hook" threads. Once this goes live.
The devs probably know what's coming. So they preemptively gave killers a new perk that incentivizes hooking everyone once to get a 30 seconds gen blocker. But survivors will just use that one time block to relit their boons/refresh their items in a locker.
How often do you get to use UB?
Seriously, how often does a killer down you, and then not pick you up to put you on the hook?
Now imagine that you need that to happen -while within range of a totem you blessed beforehand-, without the killer just stomping on the totem before you can get up. (Or before catching you and chasing you)
I just really don't see how this is supposed to compete with UB itself, which is the same effect but without -any- prerequisites.
Welcome to the new meta where killers are going to hardcore tunnel any boon totem user, i find it funny that survivors demand changes so killers dont tunnel as much and seems they instead do the complete oposite
A better perk would’ve been, each individual hook blocks all gens for 15-20 seconds. That incentivizes hooking everyone but you don’t have to wait until 4 hooks to get the benefit.
But yeah, why would I want to slug now? Survivors will just pick themselves up for free so might as well continue tunneling and facecamping with Bubba.
You down a survivor in the area. He has DS.
Three choices :
But ye it will be situational, that kind of situations happen like 1 time every 5000 trials isn't it ?
you don't snuff the totem and wait, the downed surv has unbreakable = you loose
Hey, if you're waiting there, and he gets up and you just let him walk away, that's still entirely on you, boo.
you take the survivor = DS = you loose
That's assuming you just tunnelled a survivor off hook, as opposed to going for -literally anyone else-.
This is all what needs to be said. 100% correct.
