Should be base change my mind
Shouldn't be making new threads for nothing.
Change my mind
No you're right, but since it's not it better be like Deja Vu where it happens after every Gen.
But yeah this should be base game, no reason not to.
She was just announced along with everything else!!! Give it time!!! (Even though it would be nice as base)
The perk is powerful enough to be not a base feature.
Gen rush needs something serious not a band aid, and when we get that stuff, this base will be too powerful.
8 Gens at the start of the match, minus 3 you got 5 and if all Survivors are spread out there is 1 Gen with no one on it and if the Killer finds that first then the Survivors have time to hide when they get close. This isn't powerful if it's just the start of the match for maybe 12 seconds, this fine if it was base because it's maybe 12 seconds.
As a perk I hope it's like Deja Vu and activates after every Gen, if it doesn't and it's just the 3 at the start, this perk sucks and needs to change.
There are 7 generators in the game, not 8.
Depending on the timer, something like deja vu after every generator would be overpowered af. The last 3 generators will not even be repairable for a time.
Everything depends on the timer, if it is something like 20-30 seconds, it is a wasted perk slot but if it is something like 60-90 seconds, it is a really good early game perk. There are killer like the hag too, you will be able to close those 4 generator area.
This would totally be good for killers to be base like trapper and hag so they can set up traps at the start and not worry about being gen rushed at the start
Thanks for the correction, so that means 4 Gens are potential targets instead of 5, I can see how powerful that would be early game. And like you said if the timer is too long and it was like my idea it would def be OP. Well I'm excited for the perk now, hopefully it's longer than a ######### 12 seconds.
From the look of it on the stream, assuming I'm understanding what it does correctly, it seems like it would last at least 60 seconds at Tier 3 (it looks like it took a shade under 15 seconds to go from a sliver of red to a quarter of red).
Just change it so it doesn't affect the last 3 generators. Boom easy fix and the perk is more useful.
It must be longer then 12 seconds or it gonna be a trash perk
Listen to this man devs
It's great too see in the game... there were multiple threads of this idea and I'm so glad that bhvr recognized that this was wanted.......... and you can do multiple things with this... you can turn it into offerings... one could be an ultra rare where the last 3 gens were blocked by the entity for 60 secs..... this is a subject where you can go crazy with almost endless possibilities.......... this perk is what I call the "practice child"
This practice child needs to age fast
I think the farthest gens should be locked till at least 1 or 2 gens have been completed, then they could be free
Make it a 3 token based perk that whenever a generator is at 85%, the entity blocks it from being worked on any further for 30/45/60 sec, which it should be highlighted white for being blocked and yellow once it's free. Once a gen is blocked, you lose a token. With this, it would synergize well with Tinkerer and other perks.
The time length will be everything. It needs to be long enough that just waiting isn't very viable but short enough that survivors can still prevent a 3 gen strategy. Won't place it now but this can easily tip one way or the other.
It has to be a min or more
I agree with any others. It has potential but that all depends on how long it lasts. It needs 1 min at minimum just to even be considered. 1:30-2min we start to look possibly good. I feel we'd be lucky to even get a minute on it though.
From the look of it in the stream, I think it's going to sit at one minute.
Unfortunately at 1 minute it won't be worth the slot
Maybe an added:
Everytime a gen is completed the farthest gen from you gets blocked for a minute.
That with the initial minute for 3 at the start would make this actually see some play and be viable. Also doesn't leave it as a dead perk after the start.
How about blocking the most progressed generator for 60 seconds upon hooking a survivor?
That works great too. Doesn't sound OP but is good enough to be worth running. Currently just a minute for 3 at the start is trash.
They could indeed add a "per generator completed"-effect. The duration wouldnt even be that long because it triggets multiple times. Could have a little regression tho.
Survivors who sit around during this time are squite stupid. This is their NOED/Ruin-bandaid similiar to how BBQ was for camping.
In case you did not notice, this perk makes kilers kill any hexes themselves.
Edit: it seems i oversaw the redtriction which generators get blocked, doesnt matter much tho. If you want to do specific gens, hunt totems while it is blocked
I guess it boils down to how long the generators are disabled for. If it is just for 5-10 seconds.. why even bother using it?
It's not just about having them blocked off. It directly dictates the area of play.
If the furthest 3 gens are blocked then the survivors have no choice but to begin work on the closest 4 generators. This immediately gives the killer more map pressure because now he/she doesn't have to travel to the furthest ends of the map to pressure survivors.
Once a survivor has started a generator they are unlikely to switch to another one. Not unless the killer is hard camping their gen. We've all seen how far they will go for the gen they've already put some work into.
Picture Yamoaka for instance. Huge map. If you start near the shack then the 3 gens around the house at the other end are blocked off, meaning the survivors now have to come closer to you. This saves you time traveling as survivors that spawn there cant begin work on the gen straight away, they now need to spend time traveling down the map too. On top of this you know that they'll all be on gens on your end of the map now, meaning you've cut out a huge chunk of the map for a while.
I think it will be a decent perk as long as its over 30 seconds. Any less and it would be easy to wait out. I do think it has some advantages for survivors too, an example being groaning storehouse. Those distant generators should really be left until last but a lot of survivors don't. This would force that perhaps depending on spawn points.
Its good for killers who need that early game to be slowed down, like hag and trapper.
Once the traps are placed you want survivors to go to the area where your traps are, obviously.
Besides pushing them from the back gen patrol, you have a perk that does it for you.
I see this perk beeing better then ruin on hag and trapper.
Gen Rush does not exist. Survivors have only one objective, fix gens. Are they supposed to run laps around the map just to give the killer time to find them? Thos is a silly made up notion. Maybe we are also supposed to follow survivor rules and close our eyes while counting to 60 after hooking someone. Nope.
The problem is we get used to bad survivors who hide and don't hit gens. We form bad habits of tunneling down one survivor in a 3 minute chase then scream gen rush. Be unpredictable and get them off gens. That slows it down more than anything.
Honestly, this will likely hurt Trapper, at least the way I play him. I need the first minute or so to set my chosen area of the field. Usually close to where I started where 3 to 4 gens are located. I keep pressure on those gens without dedicating to any chase. I set the area with traps, then pushed them off gens on the other side to come play in my yard. They usually get 2 to 3 gens done, depending on ruin and the survivors themselves. But now I can take control.
This perk would be a huge monkey wrench in that strategy. I often have to adapt due to a good SWF refusing to work all gens on one side, but that is rare. This perk guarantees a delay in my ability to clear my side without travelling further in the beginning. Won't be running it, damn sure don't want it as base.
