A possible fix to 99ing exit gates
I see a lot of people complain about 99ing exit gates and survivors avoiding the EGC entirely. I had an idea about how to change the gates to be a bit more fair to everyone.
- When a gate is between 0 - 95%, you start adding charges to the gate immediately upon pressing the action button.
- When a gate is between 95 - 100%, the gate only gets charges after a longer version of the pulling down the lever animation plays.
- The animation does not play if you are already holding the switch down as it enters 95%.
- When at least 2 survivors on your team are dead, this animation is removed and you immediately add charges like before.
The exact numbers are not final, maybe the animation should start at 90% instead of 95% or maybe only 1 survivor on your team needs to be dead to remove the penalty, but those are besides the point. The point is that you can still get gates very close to 99%, but if the killer was chasing someone to the gates then the survivor would suffer a penalty to opening them that could get them killed. As a result of this, 99ing gates would be more of a tradeoff instead of the survivor getting all the benefits of a open gate and none of the downsides.
What do you think of my idea? I really appreciate any feedback.
