I love the new Resonance Perk.
Scourge Hook: Resonance is such a great perk in my eyes. I absolutely despise Pop since I hate kicking gens, and Pop forces you to kick gens to get value from it, not to mention you usually have to decide between starting a new chase vs getting value from Pop.
Anyways, for just 5% less regression than Pop, you can just continue the usual flow of killer of hooking survivors and passively slowing gens down. Going for 12 hooks is so much more fun than slugging and playing "unfair".
This perk combined with Now Way out allows you to go for the 12 hook playstyle. Granted, if you want to 3-4k every match, you will need to play more ruthless. But after coming home from work, I don't want to sweat, I just want to put up a good fight with good chases, and these perks let you do that.
