Rancor is broken. Change my mind..

Ive already had countless Moris performed on me as Im running to leave because of this perk. Alot of these times I hadnt even been hooked. Why is there no criteria if youre killing someone out if the game. Its irritating and doesnt seem fair. Last I checked killers were complaining about D strike being op (just cuz u break free and get to run again).. does anyone really think that getting to one shot and instantly kill the obsession even if theyve never been hooked is fair? Shouldnt the obsession at least get to open the hatch without a key or something? obviously the killer will be guarding the gates so shouldnt the potential victim has some kind of way out? Doesnt seem fair to basically have a sealed fate of death. You cant even go to save a friend because camping killers will protect their hook and instakill the obsession. What are your thoughts?

    There are several criteria that need to be met before you can mori someone. 5 of them immediately come to mind.

    It is a fun perk though.

    It's not a strong perk. It gives the obsession aura reading on the killer several times per match, incentivizes leaving the obsession alone allowing them to walk all over the killer, and the indications it gives the killer, while useful, aren't as good as aura reading. Just don't be anywhere near the killer, or in a bad spot, when the final generator pops and you're pretty safe. And if you're not a crappy player who relies on decisive strike, the chances of you being the target is pretty low to begin with. Even when the perk pays off big time for the killer, it's just one kill and they may have to let everyone else go to secure it because a lot of mori animations are very lengthy.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that unlike perks like NOED, Rancor tells the survivor that they are the target of Rancor, so it doesn't even have any surprThe_Manlet said:

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that unlike perks like NOED, Rancor tells the survivor that they are the target of Rancor, so it doesn't even have any surprise factor. You know the entire time that the killer is going to be extremely dangerous at the very end of the match and you have the entire time to prepare for that.

    I dont believe D Strike is op. I never left the obsession alone because of it and never had a problem gettin them back down after they use it on me. Not to mention jugglers are everywhere and you can miss the skill check quite easily or even have to wiggle for it. I hardly play killer and I dont think its as op as Rancor. The obsession sees my aura for 3 seconds when a gen is done. Big whoop. I can get to him when there are two gates to get to. This perk takes alot of weight off the killers shoulder because you dont have to waste your time on the obession until endgame if you choose to. Ive killed countless people whom Ive never laid eyes on at the gates. And as for gambling to go for the obsession.. its not a gamble. By the end of the game you should have killed at least one person and should you choose to not kill the obsession yet because you know you can instakill him, it will be very easy destroying him at the end when there are only two gates to worry about. The mori animation isnt a problem if you just slug him and attack anyone else because you can just kill the slugged guy anyway. I think its very unfair to the one person. Considering they couldve avoided you all game and you can hit them once and their life will be over when the gates are powered.

    It's a counter to pro-surv obsession perks and a buff to anti-obsession killer perks.

    So what if you get moried? they could just hook and camp you anyways since the doors are open.

    It's technically a terrible perk since SWF with OP voice chat can relay the killer position every time a gen is done to the whole team.

    If you don't want to be moried by the perk, don't run obsession perks and then you will have a less than 1 in 4 chance of being moried.

    Exactly, but even better, just hide. Let other survivors open the gates. If you feel it's broken/OP, just adjust your endgame gamestyle.

    “I hardly play Killer and I don’t think it’s as OP as Rancor”. Right there is your problem OP, you don’t play Killer. 
  • EightEight Member Posts: 513

    Going to agree with the people saying it's really not that strong a perk. However, it is fun so I ran it in most of games as Rin last night.

    Didn't get to mori as many OOSes as you might think. Got a couple though, and they were satisfying. :)

  • Mister_HoldoutMister_Holdout Member Posts: 2,475

    So a perk that may or may not snag you a kill at the end is OP?

    Devs changed Moris to the criteria of having been hooked at least once, because they wanted to give the survivor the change to at least play a certain length of time, before being eleminated from the match.
    Rancor only triggers after ALL gens are done. So you already played for most of the match, so no, there is no need for anything more.
    The perks i already not that strong.

    It’s basically the killers hatch. Only reason people don’t like it is because it’s really personal

    Which is the point. The point of Obsession perks was supposed be be the Killer is literally Obsessed with Killing you, to the point of frenzy. That’s why Obsession perks are supposed be be high risk / High reward. 

    Rancor is really the first perk to make DS “high risk” at the end of a match after Mori’s got nerfed. That or tombstone Myers running Dying Light.

    Obsession doesn't mean necessary that the killer wants to kill that person ASAP.
    It is his main concern… maybe he especially want this person to be his very last victim.

    And right now DS has no real downside anyway, so why not add a risk/reward thing to a survivor perk?

    Word, maybe for stbfl or remember me stacks. Seeing how this affects one person end game, and someone gets free sight on the killer, it isn't that strong by itself.

    NOED is better in every single way, imo, for a late game perk.

  • PeasantPeasant Member Posts: 4,105

    @jacowwow

    Rancor does the following:

    During the main game

    • Reveals the aura of the survivors to you for 3 seconds
    • Reveals you to the obsession for 5/4/3 seconds
      During the end game

    • Exposes the Obsession AFTER the last generator has been repaired

    • Grants the ability to kill the obsession after downing them (without any hooks needed)

    Honestly, I don't know where to begin with you. Rancor is subjectively a bad perk, let me explain why.

    For the majority of the trial, Rancor will do almost nothing to help the killer. It's survivor aura effect is ripped straight off of Bitter Murmer which tracks better. The only difference is Rancor effects people even when they weren't on the generator for a much shorter time. It's main redeeming quality is how it exposes the obsession and let's you Mori them. However, this is not flawless. You can only kill the Obsession if they are still alive and you can find them. Assuming that you can't find them you essentially wasted a perk slot. Furthermore, if you are killing the obsession all remaining survivors are escaping. It should be noted being exposed doesn't mean jack if you can't hit them, as the instakill only applies to melee attacks. Finally Spine Chill can reveal your intent and give just the speed needed to get out the door.

    Her perks are all revenge based. So Rancor makes sense tbh.
    Spirit Fury? Revenge for all the pallets to the face.
    Haunted Ground? Revenge for touching my damn totems.
    Rancor? Revenge for getting D-striked (most times, the obsession has DS, it's just that common).

    It rarely gets used as killers often end up killing the obsession (or everyone) before gates power.
    As the obsession, you still get to live through the entire match so you already likely pipped and got a fair amount of BP. Hell, the killer might have even actually LET you live that long because of it instead of killing you early (who wants to lose out on a sick mori). You even got a free upgraded perk all game!(better version of Dark Sense since you don't even need to be the one to pop the gen to get the aura).

    Counterplay? When that last gen pops bring out the stealth and get out ASAP. Don't wait around end game. Doors open? LEAVE. Just go. Abandon the team if needed, or accept the risk of sticking around. Doors not open? Be the stealthiest MF around, even if it means losing out on gate opening points. Let that Ace open the door like a gentleman and run out once it's open and there's no heartbeat. Honestly if the obsession decides to not do this, well they made a bad play and are punished for it. Fair enough.

    It's really not hard to avoid. Only time I've died to Rancor was by choice (I love getting moried, dont judge) or because I was an idiot and stayed at the gates to throw a pebble at the killer because I'm a jerk and paid the price.
    Adapt and play accordingly if you want to live as the obsession vs this perk. It's far to situational to be OP in any sense, and rarely sees use against competent survivors,

    Rancor + Save the Best for last is pretty broken, you ignore the obsession until the end then mori them lul.

    no killer perk compares to the hatch , simply because they are a perk
    i had give to up something that could help most of the match for something that only works in the last 1 minute of the game in order to have something similar in effect to what all survivors start with

  • BossBoss Member, Trusted Posts: 10,142

    I agree it's broken in some way...

    It shouldn't allow the Obsession to disconnect when all Generators are repaired. ;)

    It shows their location when gens went of like a doctor's shock, not live feed like bitter murmor.
  • FrenziedRoachFrenziedRoach Member Posts: 1,630

    It's not broken because.....

    • You get a warning the killer has it. If you see the killer's aura after doing a gen, you know they have it, you're prepared to take action against it.
    • There are literally 2 to 3 different exits you can take, killer cannot cover them all.
    • Even if he does catch you, you got to play the entire game and rank up

    That is why it's balanced.

  • TatsuiChiyoTatsuiChiyo Member Posts: 215

    I use Rancor, and I've only "used" it once. Seeing images of Survivors is all it's really good for, and even in that it's weak since if I'm on the other end of the map it's really useless. The exposed part doesn't help me much since I tend to just kill all of the Survivors before they can repair 5 gens. Only once did they get all five, and the game wouldn't even let me mori my obsession.

  • xxaggieboyxxxxaggieboyxx Member Posts: 498
    Don't use ds so you aren't the obsession if you have trouble surviving without ds I recommend you see doctor GIT GUD. Play stealthy and you can see the killers aura when a gen is done. It's not that hard 
  • Jack11803Jack11803 Member Posts: 3,930

    Rancor doesn’t have any bugs, thus isn’t broken. GET REKT

  • thesuicidefoxthesuicidefox Member Posts: 7,483

    I've used this perk about 5 times now at end game between Spirit and Freddy. I got the obsession ONCE, and only because I chased and downed them with 1 gen left and stood there, for at least 30 seconds, to let his team do the gen so I could kill him. The last 2 got out (though I almost got one of them still). Every other time the obsession slips away and escapes the moment the gate is open. It's not really that great, just play immersed until someone opens a door and leave.
