Recent nerfs to survivor
The nerfs to survivors are getting ridiculous. They should leave self care alone. You're lucky if you don't get a tunneling killer -(especially a proximity tunneling legion) at all. I understand that on PC, there are better connections, but on PS4 it's just sad,
I've been biting my tongue waiting for the dedicated servers, but it looks like the devs are going full steam nerf survivor dunce mode before we will get to see how the dedicated servers correct these problems. Getting hit through windows shouldn't happen, proximity chasing by legion, shouldn't happen, turn off the mend while in heartbeat range. No one is talking about the major nerf to borrowed time both in the decreased time, and introducing the killer notification if you fall. They took away the little counter play that survivors had against the legion with pallets. They are bending over to the whining of the rank 1 killers and making the game less enjoyable for everyone else.
Legion actually moves even faster if he attacks while running. Until the recent nerfs, I commended the devs for balancing the game. There should be a 50% survival rate. Killers shouldn't expect to get all survivors. On one of the recent dev streams FAQs they stated how there was a 50% survival rate across maps, that's great, however in reality this doesn't account for farming killers, which means that the actual survival rate for non farming killers is closer to 40% or even less, considering that farming killers often allow 4 escapes which greatly skews this data. I enjoy survivor because it is more challenging, I have to try to survive. As killer I often get 3-4 kills, and very rarely lose, and always get far more BPs! I don't even use BBQ and chili!
The re-spawning hooks is a joke, especially with all the perks surrounding them. If physical items such as toolboxes and med kits don't re-spawn, then why do trapper bear traps and hooks?? Congratulations you've broken a hook, in 2 minutes it will be back. Breakdown, please! Distortion, great, so the first 3x the killer won't see me, however after that he will. So in other words, the first three times BBQ hits, (when you have the best chance the killer won't come after you because the rest of the team is still alive) you're hidden, however after that you're out a perk. It shouldn't work the first three times, but then work the rest of the game.
Aftercare, dismal, it's arguably worse than bond since there is a prerequisite to using it and bond has none. Hit boxes are pretty ridiculous too on PS4 at least, I've seen killers literally facing the other direction swing and somehow it hits me. As I said, I'm hopeful that some of these issues will be fixed with dedicated servers, but I'm very unhappy with all the survivor nerfs, when the game was already balanced (except for rank 1 SWF situations) As it stands if you don't have 3 great teammates then most of you are going down. I'm survivor rank 2 right now and most of my games always come down to a hatch or 4 death.
I hate to see them destroying such a fun game, and that's why I've stopped my silence and joined the forums before dedicated servers to hopefully stem the tide of these game killing nerfs.
Some map fixes that need made. - On the game map, and generally any map where the basement is the third floor down, it is incredibly dark, almost can't see what you're doing, the Badham, and Lampkin lane map, it appears like there are stars all in the air and it's very hard on the eyes to try to do a generator in one of these basements. This only seems to happen when the basement is below two floors and not just one. This happened a few patches back and hasn't been fixed.
I might mention that wiggling is joke as well, hooks are so close together on all maps that it's virtually impossible to wiggle off unless you are very careful in where you go down and if a hook has just killed a teammate. Also Legion shouldn't be able to see your heartbeat in lockers.
If lockers block aura readings they should also block this reading. It's nice to see people acknowledging how strong Legion is, I predicted he would be a top tier killer from his announcement. As it stands he is broken.
