Dying Light Rework

You become obsessed with one Survivor.

Your Obsession's altruistic action speed is increased by 50/44/38 %.

Hooking your Obsession, applies to every Survivor a penalty of 19% to Repair, Healing and Sabotage speed for 30 seconds.

When a Survivor rescues the Obsession from a Hook, the rescuer becomes the Obsession.

The Killer can only be obsessed with one Survivor at a time.

    Sounds kind of cool, though it does gives every survivor a semi 'we'll make it' as a side effect as it's written.

    @ChaosMaster130 The altruistic action speed works ONLY for the current obsession.

    Well, it is technically to counter the penalty that affects everyone due to the Obsession being hooked. The mental process should have been: Obsession gets hooked, survivors suffer the penalty, the rescuer heals the unhooked, the rescuer is your new target meanwhile the game got slowed down a bit just for you to find or another survivor or the rescuer directly.

    Sounds reasonanble. Just a question... why 19%?

    The current version of Dying Light features penalties percentuages of 19/22/50 %, and it was specifically in harmony with the actual altruism speed up of the Obsession, which is 38/44/50 % respectively (The double of the previous in a nutshel).

    As I evaluated the possibility to actually simply revert the variables and give a 25% as the debuff (sounded quite way too strong, even for 30 seconds), I decided instead to not risk on making it overpowered or rather unfair and went for the lowest value.

    I would dare to say: at tier 3, the perk gives less advantage to the Obsession in terms of altruistic actions speed, so better to lower the penalty a bit as well in order to balance it around.

    Okay. I was just curious why not 20% tbh.

    But yeah that explanation makes sense.

    A rework of this perk seems nice to me because last time I was against a killer with it, the obsession disconnected and we lost because of this

    I saw lot of killers with dying light and a mori for their obsession.
