Pre EGC strategy
With EGC now seemingly a permanent addition to the game, I sadly have to let go of a strategy that served me well for months that was both fun and suspenseful. It was a strategy that would allow me to jab at the killer once before leaving. Let me explain.
This Strategy only works when these three Variables are present
•Every survivor except you has died
•The Killer has found the hatch
•There's seemingly no change of escape
I'm not a horribly good survivor. I'm a gen jocky for the most part, and I am absolutely awful at running the killer around, but my teammates are usually the opposite. Anyway, all my teammates are dead and the only way to escape is the hatch, but the killer found it first. My first game using this strategy was against a trapper, and he was standing directly over the hatch and Naturally, it was completely surrounded in traps. I spent about ten minutes trying to figure out how to escape without getting caught, then, I figured it out. Now I don't remember the name of this perk, but basically it's the perk that allows you to see the killers aura for five seconds after finishing a generator. The plan was this. Make the trapper think I was going to fix the last two generators instead of finding the hatch, and while he's away from the hatch, I run towards it and escape. I memorized where the hatch was and I went for the generator furthest from the killer. I finished it fairly quickly and, using the perk that let's me see the killers aura, ran in the opposite direction of the killer. I made it to the hatch and jumped in just as the Trapper was passing me to check the other generators. It was the most suspenseful and fun game I have ever had in Dead by Daylight. Needless to say, I used this strategy over and over again. It got to a point where I loved doing it so much, I hoped and prayed for everyone to die so I could use it again, but now because of EGC, I really can't use it anymore. I'm sharing this strategy now because it's virtually useless. It was fun while it lasted...
