can someone explain to me why so many red rank survivors like to self care in a corner of the map? wouldnt it be more efficient if you were healed by someone else ?
Red rank against my will here:
When you're down to 2 survivors or so it's a good way to not end up instantly downed. If its a full map sure find a friend. If totems are still up great inner strength.
It's just reliable. Slow sure, but reliable.
Because my teammates are usually potatoes. That or they're swf and only care about each other.
I feel sorry for those who use that perk. If anything, untrustworthy people are them most of the time. I'm hanging on the hook and I can see the most beautiful of the shows, a survivor who runs away from the killer and 2 idiots who heal themselves in a corner of the map while I die at my first hook because nobody comes to help me or at least tries to put pressure by completing a generator. No, definitely better to heal in a corner with the Mangled Effect and Thanatophobia right? The funniest thing? It often happens in red and purple ranks
I dont anymore. I used to have it on every build but Inner Strength is a way faster heal and is now my go to perk for healing.
Self-Care, Botany, Resilience, Spine Chill + Green Medkit with Surgical Suture and Abdominal Dressing.
That is all.
Its got the same efficiency as a survivor healing you (outside of we'll make it/botany knowledge shenanigans), either i spend 32 seconds alone, or we both spend 16 seconds (which is 32/2)
Of course, efficiency isnt as important as urgency, and self caring is alot of time spent standing still, time that can suddenly become very important to manage. Thats why usually if i want heals I'll bring a med kit.
But say i fancy bringing that flashlight/toolbox, and i want a means to heal myself self sufficiently, then yeah I'll pick self care, you can choose when and where you want the heal, do it in smaller chunks or all at once, 99% yourself for resilience shenanigans etc. Its a decent perk
However, its more the playerbase than the perk thats bad. You need to know when you dont have the time to heal yourself, or when to focus on doing something else, and just be injured
Because I dont trust teammates to do anything properly and they could be using that time to do gens. Half the time they can't even look out for themselves let alone others. Last thing I need is a surv failing skill checks to reveal my location.
Imagine running two bad perks
I play solo a lot and I don't use SC anymore. One of the best decisions I've made in this game. It really isn't needed. I love using Bond, resilience, Prove Thyself and DH.
I'd rather use Bond + Leader.
Personally, I just use self-care when playing Claudette because I like keeping everyone's three starting perks on their load outs. Though, Claudette is the survivor I play most of...I'm not usually hiding in the corner of the map if I know I don't have time to heal myself and save someone. I do play more altruistically though, because I feel bad if I don't help a fellow survivor out, even if they don't return the favor.
Though, to me self-care has helped me in certain occasions. Like during the end-game when I need to heal myself and go help a survivor on a hook if it's just us two left, or sometimes I can't depend on my teammates to heal me because they're busy being chased or other things of that sort.
However, I haven't been part of red ranks for awhile now. I mostly stay in purple ranks, sometimes I make it back to red if I play for hours. But, it just seems like red rank survivors are in it for themselves and not for the "team" if this happens often...?
I dont, its a waste of time
Inner strenght is better and can be used to make some sweet jukes
Only bad survivors use it. Bring a medkit.
Self-Care has infinite uses, isn't affected by Franklin's Demise and uses the same total player time to heal.
Inner Strength is limited to maximum 5 uses, and requires you to be vulnerable in a locker. And tied to a DLC character.
I dunno about you, but the maths is more favourable.
I've run Self-Care and I've run Botany+Medkit. Honestly prefer Self.
You can just use a medkit and addons. Let me guess, you use urban and sb too?
Because they think they are the most important player ever and every killer will drop everything to hunt them. They need to run to the corner of the map and heal themselves while their allies chase them down trying to heal them.
Self care fricken sucks, it wastes so much time, you could be working on a gen or saving someone from a hook, you know how manytimes ive waited till im almost dead from being firat hooked because people are worried about healing themselves, so what if its risky its better if anything to trade hooks, its better for the overall health of the match, on a side note its also annoying when all my teammates use the fountains over and over again against the plague, idiots...
Why would you use a med kit if you have self care on, and you definitely should not be using self care if you have spine chill on,, come to think of it this is the worst synergy i can think of, spinechill and resilience i get it thats perfect, while injured repair faster and wait for spine chill to pop off and run away, if you were joking when you wrote this then i apologize for sounding hostile cause it is funny
Well, I wouldn’t need to heal myself that many times anyway because I’d rather spend my time doing the objective. Being injured is not the end of the world given the abundance of strong loops.
If I could loop like a streamer, then sure. I'm also not running Iron Will.
To help the killer slow the game down. Bonus points if they have thanatophopbia, sloppy or both!
Self care is bad I never use it
I play solo, and a lot of survivors are toxic.
Imagine you dont run self care and come to a gen with a guy, but he refuses to heal you, and works on the gen. Ok, you join in, in hope he heals you afterwards. But i had guys that run away when the gen was finished to work on the next.
But then, if the killer comes, you know why. Because most killer will go for the easy prey that is downed with one hit instead of two. Those survivors even bodyblock you to make sure you are closer to the killer and they get away.
A lot of survivor just see you as a bag of bloodpoints to farm for them. You cant rely on them, and they hang you out to dry if it helps themself. i run kindred and in several games i get to struggeling on first hook while the killer is away, and every survivor has the information that noone is coming. They just don´t care for you.
Yes, and thats why i selfcare.
But i should say that i suck at chases and rely on stealth. i can juke killers, but its harder if you leave a visible blood trail.
Same. And since cleansing totems activates it, you're doing 2 things at once.
I just use it if I play solo survivor (what I usually never do) and dont have any medkits (which is very rare). So basicly never xD
I thought about running it but I often find myself finding a health pack in a chest or am able to get gens done quick enough that I don't have the time to sit around and heal when my resilience pops and get out of there 9% faster.
Rank system is not working. That is why. It makes no sense that you can pip up +2 but not -2. That creates imbalance in rank.
Or just did a gen instead of healing themselves. Increases the chances of survival by a great deal. Healing in corners is likely to get everyone killed
