I'm this kind of player. Idk how you'd classify it but I win games and was rank 4 last season
Legit this will make people more reliant on slugging and watching them bleed out a survivor dying in 1 min on the ground will be more reliable then face camping, proxy camping, tunneling or even hooking
You legit realize you can replace ONE of ether the fourth and third to have ether Detectives hunch or unbreakable?
Btw one of these perks are part of the current meta
Oh okay, so you don't know what you're talking about when it comes to balance.
You think NOED and slugging are OP, but somehow DS is balanced. ahaha
Legit though, you're new, you have no room or experience base to talk about balance. So stop. Your comments scream "I'm a no0b3 wannabe and just bought this game 3 months ago!". You need to actually get some experience, play killer above brown/yellow ranks, and then tell me how OP these things are. However, if you can't win without meta survivor perks, I don't think you could win killer at red ranks with the most OP killer perks in the game.
As for your rank 4 flex - with the way rank reset has been the last 2 months, you have zero credibility for claiming you got to rank 4. It's always been piss easy to rank up as survivor, and it's been easier since the rank reset changes happened. Case and point, rank reset happened a few days ago. I'm already rank 1 survivor again; and I was reset to rank 11.
Happy now? Idk why you all want to invalidate my opinions as me being "bad"
If the devs reduced the bleedout to 1 minute it would actually BUFF slugging. People that slug don't care about points and pips. They care about killing. One minute bleedout means I won't even move as soon as I down someone. I will just sit on the downed survivor for a minute and down them again if they get back up.
One minute later it's a 3 vs 1. Easy win. Remember two hook stages is 2 minutes in total.
Okay, all gen speeds are increased by 200% to compensate then, because that just cut killer pressure almost in half.
Rank 4 means nothing. Ranking up as survivor is crazy easy, as I said. Survivor rank is a participation trophy, not a factor of skill. Even the DEVS said in the matchmaking notes that rank doesn't translate to skill.
So no, rank means nothing, and if you need meta perks to win, you're not good at the game.
Bring the perks if slugging is so frequent for you.
Oh, but they aren't meta perks, and if you don't run meta perks "you don't win" according to this guy.
I need self healing and decisive. That's it. I run plenty of "off-meta" perks in the 3rd and 4th slot. Alert, Balanced Landing, Better Together, Prove Thyself, Quick and Quiet, Head On etc. But all of those are for fun. Unbreakable doesn't even get used half the time. And Detective's Hunch is an expensive perk to buy on an otherwise unremarkable survivor
"I need self healing and decisive" Thanks for proving my point.
Also - If unbreakable doesn't get used half the time...why is slugging such an issue? As well, Balanced Landing, Prove Thyself, Quick and Quiet AND Head On are ALL meta perks.
Again, get better at the game, then you'll have credible opinions on balance. Until then, you're just an entitled survivor.
Take the L, bud. You don't have perks to help you win this debate.
I bet you could get rank 1 only using No Mither right? LOL stop acting like Perks aren't a core game mechanic and are unnecessary if you're "good"
Slugging is a tactic, but like most it can be used in scummy ways, it works well, so they will use it time and time again, there's already a penalty for letting a survivor bleed out so maybe if they were to make it harsher that would help, but if a player (because they are not a killer if they are playing like that) is just slugging to be a d bag then the points don't matter to them so its just something you will have to deal with, unless a fundamental change is made to certain systems
I've never tried - but I have gotten to rank 1 with no perks and only bloodpoint offerings, and have won with no mither MANY times.
Anything else? I'll shoot everything you say down. You have nothing.
You are literally insane
This is not a good idea and here is why ;
Huh it’s almost like slugging cuts survivor productivity by 25% and is natural slow down stop acting like it’s a bad thing it’s just the next evolution in killer play style ther is nothing to nerf or punish unless you want to start punishing survivors for completing gens too fast
B8 isn't supposed to be THIS obvious, m8.
You know, if slugging is that powerful, there is a Perk out there that almost completely disables the Killer's ability to slug you and the only trade-off is being in a one-hit chase instead of a two-hit one.
Just my two cents.
Oh, but I addressed that with OP, and he simply mewled that "It's not a meta perk, and if you don't use meta perks, you don't win".
Meanwhile, I really do be out here getting use out of Any Means Necessary, Babysitter, and Fixated, but hey, I guess off-meta Perks are nonviable, right?
No more killer nerfs dude. You act like this game isn't a bully the killer sim. When we get at least 6 killers that are viable in all ranks then maybe you can complain.
Meanwhile, I play half my games only running the pebble perk, because survivor is easy, lol
This right here! The DS meta is what has made slugging a new killer meta. I see an obsession I assume everyone has DS so after first hook you're staying in the ground for a while
I'm just not a big fan of the color orange, so I avoid it
thats dumb af. It’s the survivors fault for getting slugged in the first place. Wanna counter it? Stop hovering in the same area with teammates and go do gens.
slugging only works against dumbass survivors
Slugging a single person is a fine strategy and not the problem, slugging an entire team is a troll ruining the game for other just for lulz so as long as its not a entire team slug then it doesnt apply to my statement, but as i said if you would read all of it and not focused on just the part that triggerd you, is it can be abused by douches who are out to troll, without unbreakable or no mither it reduces productivity by 50% at least, i love slugging a person and going out to hunt the one guy doing gens and not saving teammates be altruistic in my game and you may survive, be selfish and you can ask the entity why you died first lol
