Scott Jund's Trial Warmup, FIXED!

While Scott Jund's idea has merits, it is fundamentally BROKEN!

Why is it broken? Because the chase mechanic is 100% unreliable. Why do you think Mend no longer uses it. Instead, change the mechanic to PauseEnd when a player is downed. When any downed player gets up, the mechanic Resumes in full effect. The only way to permanently End the effect, is to hook a survivor. Once the first survivor is hooked, and the Pause/End phase-out is over, the game plays as it currently does.

Pause/End should linearly phase-out the mechanic over 15 seconds, while Resume should phase-in the mechanic within 1 second. That is how you balance the mechanic, and there would not be any possible way to abuse it.

EDIT: It appears that many people aren't able to think outside the box. Stealth play is greatly enhanced by this, but people like Scott aren't able to comprehend stealth play. Removing the hooking requirement and changing to just the first down, is an option that only 1 person has voiced, and is a perfectly viable option. Scott's idea depends upon fallible conditions, that are not easy to compute. This solution depends upon binary conditions, where there is no possibility of mistake.

    Yeah chases are super buggy, making it so it just straight up lasts until first down or hook aside from the timer would be pretty decent.

    Gen speeds are fine. You only get gen rushed if you are chasing 1 survivor for minutes at a time and refuse to break chase.

    If it is taking them minutes to go down, they are better than you. If you can't find a single survivor in the whole game who you can down in a reasonable amount of time, the entire lobby is better than you, and you deserve to lose.

    Simple, really.

    Scott is a huntress main so it's no wonder he is complaining he can't slap on the braindead ruin and now actually gets punished for mis-positioning his 110 killer on the map.

    You obviously didn't read what I posted. Once a survivor is downed, the effect is Paused. This will have not help a slugging killer in any way, unless the survivors play poorly. In which case, you're going to lose anyway.

    The top killers still absolutely demolish almost any solo Q team, barring a really unfavorable map.

    Killers still have so many crutches they can put on. Be it add-ons, entire characters (freddy, nurse, spirit), perks, moris, hawkins/lery offerings, etc.

    This system is also completely flawed. Killer brings a mori, tunnels that survivor and gets a free win.

    Otherwise I get downed immediately so I don't waste anything. Then the good survivors just proceed to loop the killer forever. That early hook will make absolutely no difference in the end if the killer isn't good enough.

    Scott's suggestion isn't great either. The game needs to incentivise survivors to do more than just gens.

    Good fix man, nevermind, Scott made me look braindead

    Again, you don't seem to understand game mechanics. I don't care that you're a professional streamer, but you might want to think outside the box every once in a while. Your so called method of slugging and reviving, would be a bad play by survivors. But then you don't like stealthy play. Sorry, but you don't know everything, and neither do I, but I do know that this is easy to implement, and would be fair.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    Yes, make the effect go away with the first down.

    A billy/nurse/oni with IF, would almost have a free win from there.

    Got any statistics on that?

  • KornySon10KornySon10 Member Posts: 103

    A proper build and play-style on any killer can mitigate it greatly. Killers like demo, hag, trapper, etc are all incredibly good at hanging onto a 3 gen. Someone like hag/demo might even be too good at it, if you have cleared out all the pallets nearby.

    Someone like huntress has no map pressure but you ignore half the loops in the game so that is the price you pay.

    It's like people playing M1 killers complaining about god-windows when there is a perk that completely shuts down almost all god-windows, the shack, cow tree, and almost every single jungle gym if used correctly.

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 3,638

    Yes an early hook makes a massive difference to the game but it all depends on the quality of the killer or if they are using a mori. If they get that free hook then they can tunnel down the survivor and get someone out of the game before the team has really any chance to do anything.

    But on the same note I think just giving the killer a free hook before any pallets are used doesn't do a lot. Solo teams could have a few problems but a coordinated team I still believe won't get too badly affected by giving the killer a free hook.

    Your chase idea I like the thought process behind it but I don't think it helps against a good team. If this was implemented one member of my team would go get the killers attention, then we rush gens. If the killer gets a free hit then it all depends on the killer if they can somehow down the survivor. I've personally had games where I got injured immediately and proceeded to loop the killer for 4 or 5 gens and that was before the change to ruin.

    Maps need to be reworked immediately. Keys and moris need to be nerfed at the same time. Adding your idea would help a bit but not enough, especially against a good team. It's a bad sign atm where my team escapes and we say we were dominated. We know the killer was really good, ended chases quickly but just couldn't get any kills because of the balance of the game.

    Sorry this is really long, just wanted to explain my points.

    It's a interesting idea but some killers would get a bit too much of a buff from this. Plague could have everyone broken before commiting without worry, Pig could just follow people with active traps until they die, Legion could also get everyone injured before commiting. Oni could just wait until he gets a perfect snowball from his power by letting slugs get back up if he only gets a single down. The same could apply with Billy or Nurse. Myers becomes the most OP killer in the game using his infinite tier 3 tombstone combo since he has all the time in the world now. Even just standard infinite tier 3 would be busted.

    Some perks would see a major boost such as save the best for last since you could get 8 stacks before commiting.

    I think this would actually encourage slugging as well. You'd slug one person and go find someone else on a gen, the slug gets up while you're chasing someone else, gens are now awful and you rinse and repeat until everyone has bled out. When survivors notice the killer is slugging and never hooking, they will only focus on gens and probably just let the guy bleed out on the ground since it's the most effective strategy at that point. It'd become the equivalent of getting facecamped. Sucks for that guy it's happening to but it's gen time now. Worst part being you could do this with any killer fairly effectively. You could also simply never down anyone and get every pallet thrown on the map which becomes very unfair for survivors once you start to actually play.

    Even if it's changed to where 1 down will end the effect for good, killers like Plague and especially Myers would become pretty annoying and unfair to play against.

    Honestly, I agree with this. I have instances especially in the Cornfield start because apparently the game registered a Claudette pixel in the distance.

    I'm sitting here wondering whether hell the game managed to find someone as I can't see any scratch marks or any indication that people are around.

    Game: hey, I found a survivor, time to initiate Chase.

    Me: Hey game, I'd love to, only downside is I'd love to find this mystical survivor myself because from my point of view all I can see is corn

    Nah I'd just prefer it to end with the first down, not resume until they get hooked cause that can be exploited to the killer's advantage.
