Im on xbox and i rarely get gen rushed at red ranks. Most games i get put with 2 decent survivors and 2 rank 13s i play ghostface,myers,hag and billy without op add ons or any gen slowing perks
On PS it is a thing, even though the devs say that gen rush isn't a thing, I was playing a few min ago, and it was 1 down for 3 gens, matches often end in 4-6 min on ps4 the easiest way to not have that happen is using spirit, billy, oni but I don't blame it on survivors since that is their objective, I blame the big maps and pallet placement, I knew that I messed up for chasing 1 survivor but it wasn't that bad before.
Gen rush is more like a "bad killer needs an excuse" thing.
im on xbox as well and I see it on both sides
Im on xbox and i see more half baked potatos than anything.
I only get rushed if I let them.
Sometimes its really crazy how fast gens get done. I remember one match on coldwind with huntress. I spawned and immediately found an afk survivor. downed, hooked him and a gen popped. like wtf...
Sure you have games where you get genrushed because its the easiest counter to every killer, but its not that often everyone claims it to be. At least not for me. Because of all the boosted survs and the matchmaking, chances are high you get some survs doing nothing the whole game.
Its just a very frustrating feeling if you get a group dedicated to gens and they get carried by the speed although they are bad at playing the game. So you tend to remember the unfair games instead of the games you dominated.
People play XBOX!?
To be honest, it doesn’t really happen. It feels like they are gen rushing you but in reality if you aren’t running a viable killer or got a bad map they are going to finish a gen. Also, letting a chase go on for to long can make it feel like gen rushing.
I only consider it gen rush if there's at least two tool boxes. Even then I'm not sure I'd consider that gen rush anymore given how useless toolboxes are now.
Sometimes I like to go into a game and see how fast I can do a gen and trust me when you go into a trail and actually try to gen rush it’s insane..the fastest I’ve done a gen was 20 seconds but in the PTB a gen was done in 14 (with the new toolbox’s) the only people who say gens don’t go to fast are the people who want an EZ game as survivor or survivor mains ..I play killer and survivor 50/50 so I’m not as biased as someone who plays only one role and I think gens need to be looked at they go way to fast especially with toolbox’s ..people say they got nerfed but I personally think they got buffed (yes you can’t use them as much) however you can do gens a lot faster now with them
i have only gotten gen rushed a few times most of my games are 4ks against potatoes at red ranks and i personally don't think theres anything wrong with gen speeds the only issue in my opinion is that few maps are a bit too big or are too safe
I'm not a fan of the term "gen rush" but do survivors prioritize gens all the time on PS4, no. Does it happen sometimes on PS4 absolutely.
When I play survivor, I am one of those "toxic gen rushers" I prioritize gens over almost everything else either solo queue or duo queue with my buddy. I've been in games with like minded survivors and I've been in games with "crouch masters"
When I play killer, I'm all about "juggling" or "split pressure" whatever term you want to use. Obviously, Non mobility killers can struggle with this play style though.
Killer cant do [BAD WORD] during the first minute of the game most of the time 2 gen can poo before the killer can see a survivor
Then use discordance
True at least you know which gen will pop before you can make it there so you can prepare youre 3 gen strat right away and if by some miracle you make it there you can only chase 1 survivor the other 3 will finish those gen before you can hook the guy you chase
Is face camping and hook camping a PS and PC thing? Hm. You’re gonna get gen rushed if you hide in the shadows waiting for your next victim. You just mentioned you play killers that can be good at basically baiting hooked survivors because of either undetectable or traps that you can just teleport to (like placing about 1 million of them on a hooked survivor) So of course teams are gonna see that and just hit gens off. Learn to do gen control. The game literally tells you(And rewards you) via certain perks To go get someone else.
It does happen on ps4 but not often from my experience. As survivor, it is mostly no but can happen every so often. As killer, it feels like it happens more often.
