    The idea is to stress you out. You are, after all, about to die. Seems like it's working.

    Well, I did suggest skill checks instead of the struggle button.

    @Doc_W__HOLLIDAY

    how am i the Troll here at least i tell the Devs waht pisses me off while you say useless crap like "Triggered much?" just dont talk if you dont have anythign to say Forum Troll. sadly i found 2 Forum Trolls super quickly.
    pls only talk in this Thread if you have somethign usefull to say but i guess you dont have.

    You're crying over a feature that's set in the game to purposefully stress you out. Should being slaughtered by a killer and fighting off an ancient evil trying to consume your soul be a simple walk in the park?

    ill guess hes a non swf and probably newer player to the game . The mechanic is designed around having a lost killer not being close to a hook and you having a small chance to escape his grasp , then if you factor in a killers iron grasp which makes it 75% harder to struggle free . Now , survivors have DS (wich is a skill check)and with the addition of kate (don't remember the name of her basic ability) there is also a counter to iron grasp .

    almost everything a killer can do or has the survivors have a counter or tool for , its just about getting the right setup for the killer you face . What MM uses is different from the nurse which is different from the huntress , so its hard to gauge a setup to struggle free based on one killer . Plus you have to consider that struggling free isn't supposed to happen all that often unless the killer messes up . Think of it like slippery meat its a small % chance based off what the killer does while he carries you .

    As far as the button mashing goes , watch the meter the faster you push them isn't always the better . each press adds a certain amount to the meter , it also takes x amount of time and thus hitting the next key doesn't register if hit too fast , its a timing thing .

    ... he was talking about "on the hook" struggle

    Also Boil Over sucks

    I took it that he was talking about the struggle free concept since he said bashing his keyboard . Default comp settings are keyboard to struggle free and to unhook is mouse . I may be wrong on what he meant but that is how I read it .

    Thank you for naming the ability I couldn't remember . The more I think about it I hope he was talking about the carry struggle , on the hook without slippery meat you only have 3 chances so there wouldn't be any keyboard bashing involved .

    Boil over isnt the popular build but like I said it counters iron grasp , and combined with ds it would make for a easier struggle free . But I also agree with you in the fact there are better abilities out there for other things . I don't run it myself , I worry about the game outside of the struggle free mechanic .

    I've broke free 3-4 times 1 match before I knew it was a thing a killer kept trying to take me to a hatch for a gg release and I thought I was gonna die till they dropped me at it with my last catch with beartrap
  • ricecrackerricecracker Member Posts: 17

    @Grimbergoth you talk about Wiggling .... i talk about Strugging....
    Struggling is jsut mashing Spacebar for 1Minute and then die anyways if you are unlucky , and if you let go you just hurt the Team, and every one is pissed because the guy on hook could have given some Time by Struggling but he decided to let go and i can completely understand it because its probably the most unfun mechanic in the World. IT HAS TO GO it cant be so hard to remove it.

    they could make so u hold spacebar like with the selfunhook if you decide you want to die. that would be something for the start even tho i disagree with the suicide mechanic in general.

  • GrimbergothGrimbergoth Member Posts: 293

    I don't know why I overlooked that entirely , and yes that is tedious at best . Though I think if it wasn't a somewhat easy skill check that most players would die if they went that rout , especialy when they are newer players . At least with this method you get bp for the struggle . I don't find it all that difficult myself, annoying , but not difficult .

    Thank you for pointing out I was talking about the wrong thing .

    I'd prefer holding M1 since your keyboard is already getting destroyed as it is.

    Are you one of those who think you need to press the button like crazy till you hurt your arm? You poor thing.....

    Just needs a steady rhythm. It's nothing to stress over.... I don't think I tap more than 3 times a second myself an always get nearly maximum points per struggle.

    Yeah, was quite obvious you don't play  much as a survivor, otherwise you'd know when they are taking you to the hatch.

    If it's like wiggling, twice per second will do.

    Huh I have never been given points for struggling only a escape that why I take people to my basement as much as I can so they can get free though one time I used it to give hatch to somone so they wouldn't bleed out (unless swf team and I'm being ruined lol)

    Every time I play survivor my game lags do bad I die with the killer 30 feet away (if it was a huntress no biggie they got good aim) but with a trapper no were near me me looking behind me as I run to falling down and them walking over to me from the distance I ran from them at makes it really not fun to play sirvivor
  • GrimbergothGrimbergoth Member Posts: 293

    You probably didn't notice it , once the legs , spikes whatever you want to call them come down on stage two and you struggle , when you give out you are given points according to how long of a struggle it was , max I think is around 800 .

  • SadonicShadowSadonicShadow Member Posts: 1,146

    how on earth is this a problem. You dont have to mash your keyboard until it breaks. All it takes is a consistent, steady pace of taps.

  • redsopine1redsopine1 Member Posts: 1,437
    Ah if its stage two then yer I can get that I just meant struggling while being carried
