Changing Adept Killer to 4k

I have gotten many 4k's with The Ghost Face but never got the Adept achievement. I am almost always a pip away from double pipping and I never achieve merciless killer. Survivors get the Adept achievement through just escaping so it would make sense for killers to get it through getting a 4 kill.

    Just have to go m1 kill, don't use the stalk at all. That's how I got it.

    But to your point, you're right. At least lower the threshold from merciless to ruthless.

    I tried to get it with Trapper the other day and it was just pure misery. I guess I should have done it a while back or maybe not play for a few months before I do it again.

    And here I am, still saying the Victory Cube was one of the best changes for Killer QoL

    I've got the Platinum trophy on PS4 and when I did the adept killers unlocked some of them by getting Ruthless killer but with 4K.

    I haven't tried getting adept Ghost Face yet, but am curious to see if they've changed it.

    Honestly? The Victory Cube was simple and made sense. It rewarded skill at the game's central goal, and actually sorted people according to their ability to achieve that. The new pipping system is overly complicated, obtuse, and has very little to do with actual skill. I'd say, without reservation, that the new pipping system is a failure in every aspect.

    yeah.

    at least you didnt depip with 3 kills there.

    compared to the current state of the emblem system, the victory cube was pure perfection...

    @Patricia can we get a look at reintroducing the Victory Cube?

    I still find it strange that a Killer can 4k and not pip, likewise, I find it strange a Killer can not get a single Kill and still pip.

    Same goes for Survivor.

    I'm cool with you guys making a few judgments here in there, but there is one thing that needs to stay true in all cases.

    If a Killer 4ks, no matter what, he should always get one pip. If a Survivor escapes without going down, they should always get a pip. The other pip can come from performance based measurements.

    Just because something is complicated doesn't mean it's good. The more simple a ranking system the better it is. The current system imposes a lot of arbitrary nonsense that forces people to play outside of their desired playstyle, which is not good for a rank system. There is a reason most games with ranking simply go with "win or lose" conditions.

    Besides, if the game is balanced around the 2 escape 2 die mentality, why don't you guys track pips? It should be 2 pip, 2 depip. Dying isn't a loss when you still gain a pip.

    I mean, we just had rank reset. Aren't you still around green ranks or even yellow? Should be quite easy to get the double pip.

    But I understand where you coming, I personally would prefer to change it to 4k aswell.

    Not really. At green ranks you have to get three Iridescents and one Gold or four Iridescents to double pip as Killer. In my experience, red, purple, and green ranks seem to mix together (or I’m finding Survivors who are intentionally trying to not rank up). Also if you could climb the ranks pretty quickly if you tried to before yesterday.

    The Adepts would work a lot better if they only required a 4k. That way you don’t have to play a certain way and pray that Survivors don’t do something to screw it up.

    If I could give this post a 1000 Vote Ups, I would. I've been beating this drum for a while now. I hate the killer emblem system. They have put a ridiculous amount of time and resources into a system that is just worse. Bring back the victory cube for killers!!! I don't really care what they do on the survivor side.
