Why Hook Vacuum...

Needs to be reworked, or taken a look at, or test anything but it needs some rework.

I was still on her shoulders when she was about to hook me, then my Wiggle Meter stops.
Anyone know if there are any talks into balancing this out?

Or is it balanced? Is this balanced?
I main killer and I wouldn't mind a rework.

    Yeah, lets get rid of it so killers can hook from any angle.
    Body blocking is crap.

    They were testing doing that at one point recently. I thought it went live and have been body blocking from multiple angles lol. Still successfully though.

    I watched the video several times now… when did the "vacuum" happen and please explain me the "unfairness" of it.

    I just saw someone getting hooked. Period.
    Hook vacuum is a survivor lie.

    It causes a lot of collision issues since it actually is a Hook-sliding, not a vacuum.

    I have asked for this several times already. Survivors got multi directional unhooks, where are the multi directional hooks?

    Only if you make the swivel hooks not only swivel for survivors, hypocrites.

    Oh, what's this? Bodyblocking is so much fun, tactical "outsmarting the killer"? That's sad.

    I main both killer and survivor and I find it unfair.
    Needs to be taken a look at definitely.

    Sure mister I have only one post and is probably the OP making a second account so there is atleast a person on the thread that seem to agree with the OP.
    It exist and wont go away because the killer need to be in a set spot to hook the survivor
    Unless you want them to make the hook animation similar to the unhook animation aka multidirectionnal it isn't going anywhere sweety
    By the way if they make the hook animation multi directionnal bodyblocking the hook won't be possible anymore.

    agreed i will be first to admit i dont main survivor i play survivor but playing and maining are two different things also how does one main more then on if maining means you play more than the other? almost as annoying as those who claim to be rank one on both sides

    When killer can hook from any angle, remove it.

    It literally is caused by the animation moving the Killer to position. The only alternative would be swivel hooks for Killers that would also mean that survivors can no longer bodyblock.

    Consider your options and be careful what you wish for or you will have to deal with me saying
    "i told you so" once you start crying.

    WGLF should also include completed generators (as in equivalent not just blasting a 99% gen), give up a slot for double BP as long as you are productive.

    Yeah, body blocking is a serious pain. Its just annoying, and doesn't really fit the theme of the game IMO.

    If I get into a game and get a 3 person body block on my first hook attempt, I usually just drop. I don't care about rank, so its much more time efficient for me to try and get into a game with less asshattery.

    the "hook vacuum" is only there to make the animation look smooth. in reality, the killer has already reached that hook, just from a different angle (similar to the survivors multidirectional unhooking), so the game moves him in front of the hook, as there is no multi directional hook animation for the killer.
    if there was a specific animation for this, you wouldnt get the feeling of a "hook vacuum", but the killer would simply stop, turn the hook his way and hook you up.
