Will adept killer be easier now?

I'm sure this has been raised before somewhere, but under the new MMR system if we are new to a killer then we are matched with low skill survivors. So theoretically won't it be easier to get the adept achievements now?

    Been trying as Bubba and in 7 games they were all super sweat squads with maybe one random newer player thrown in here or there. But I've also heard of the opposite happening for people so who the hell knows.

    It should be easier now. I already managed to get Adept Oni and Adept Pyramid Head, but the prerequisites for getting Merciless Killer are still difficult to get. To put it this way, it's more difficult to get it the higher the rank you are because the pips are spread out more. The best advice I have is to intentionally leave people on the ground a few times to make the game last longer. Dropping chases by just injuring survivors and leaving them helps too. Try making the game last longer than 9 minutes to earn more points in the Gatekeeper emblem while still having a fair amount of generators left in the game unfinished. Try hooking the whole survivor team a total of 9 times or more. If a survivor suicides on hook, this will make getting this emblem as iridescent or gold more difficult. The Malicious emblem is easy. Just keep them all injured as much as you can and keep hitting them. Finally, for the Chaser emblem, just play out the chase as you normally would. Hitting a survivor during a chase awards big points for this category meaning that if you're playing as an insta-down killer, you'll get less points so consider hitting survivors twice instead of going for the insta-down all the time. Also, camping the hook makes you lose points. I recommend staying at most 16 meters away from the hooked survivor to not lose points in this emblem. Think twice if a survivor trys to bring a chase towards a hooked teammate. It might make you lose points (IDK if this is confirmed).

    I highly suggest reading up on this for more information to have a better chance at getting these achievements. Good luck. https://deadbydaylight.gamepedia.com/Emblems

    I had the same idea. Sadly I'm at rank 1 and play enough to stay there.

    Rank 1 you need all 4 emblems at iri. Gatekeeper and devout are both entirely dependant on survivor behaviour--if they get a decent rush you're on gold gatekeeper, if they start Dcing/ hook suiciding you'll be on gold devout. By far the worst is chaser though- as far as I can tell the only reliable way to get this to iri is to drag out the game to a painful degree. Occasionally this happens naturally, but the vast vast majority of games result in a gold emblem. This is before we get on to killers who underperform in the emblem system by actually using their powers...

    If you're at literally any other rank than red it should be viable though!

    For me yes, I'm abusing the bad mmr to get adepts, I don't feel like sweating again to do them again on a different platform.
