Without corrupt I'm starting to think there isn't a way for me to slow down the gen rush
Corrupt and pop is really the only way right now. Ruin is useless. Thanataphobia is only really half way decent on Plague or Legion.
not without perks. Basically pop ruin bbq are sadly a must on every red rank killer if you want to have a chance of winning.
Prioritize getting survivors off of gens over getting downs in the early game. Helps a LOT. It seems counter-intuitive, but it works.
Correctly predict the spawn locations of the survivors and head in that direction.
You will still likely lose a generator, maybe even two, before you get a down even if you're doing well.
This is why any good build will include 1-3 slowdown perks. Your early game is so dogshit that you need to make sure the later gens go slowly.
Without those, tough luck.
Not true. Pop yes. Rest no.
Okay. This is gonna sound weird and counter productive. Slug some instead of hooking. If you slug one then one has to come off gen to heal. If you get in a chase after you slug thats 3 off gens theoretically of course.
Also. Try to get a 3 gen scenario.
Lastly and most important. Learn when to drop chase and when to commit. Just cause gens pop doesnt mean its over.
I would highly recommend running Discordance. It's the best perk to prevent gen-rushing.
You want a slowdown build? Thanato + Sloppy B + Corrupt Intervention + PGTW. Now, add Freddie's addons to slow down and you've got a no gen rush Killer who is gonna make the game boring AH for survivors but you'll get the 4k
Do gen pressure.
I mean choosing OP killers with meta-slowdown perks like Corrupt, Pop / Ruin, Thana will help :D
Me a myers main when someone tells me to pick a different killer:
Discordance helps but a good swf will always 2 man gens because you can't get much done in 45 seconds.
Yeah because literally I got like 2 downs and hear 3 or 4 gens pop. Literally couldn't do anything because I'm myers on Macmillan so that match sucked in general. Then the matchmaking gave me red ranks as well who I no doubt think is a 4 man. It really wasn't fun it's the reason why I slowed down on playing the game. As soon as I hit purple everyone starts gen rushing like crazy
I see no problem
Lol no problem nice bait though
It really does depend on your killer, Assuming you're myers corrupt is about your only real option to stop gap those first few gens from going off while you build your power. Thrilling Tremors is a slept on perk in combination with Ruin. And it'll give you free information on who's working on a gen while you're hooking your first few people. If you don't want to crutch Corrupt you can swap it out for tremors+ruin its not as strong as tremors in the front half of the game but usually by mid game its still pretty powerful. And Don't sleep on thanatophobia plus dying light.
If slowing the game down is a priority any combination of those 4 perks is enough give you some gains. But as Michael you got it pretty rough at the start of the game not gonna lie.....
All jokes aside, try to play the long game and perhaps do a 3 gen?
I'd say note down a few gens that are extremely close and decent them at all costs. Make sure you slug when you get to 3 or less gens left if you need pressure. Pop is an excellent perk and on some killers like Legion and Doctor I find it works extremely well with Ruin.
I'd also say on instadown killers bring Infecrious Fright and Save The Best For Last on ability killers like Demo, Deathslinger and Pyramid Head. This way you can chain downs extremely quickly which will help you get lots of pressure.
Ok for starters I'm a myers main. Secondly I have no teachables other than ruin, pop,monitor,bbq,agitation,brutal,stridor. And I have every base perk and teachable i have tier 3. So those perks that band aid issues aren't really helpful. I am trying to get corrupt because my m8 said he would game share as long as I had the bp to instantly buy the teachable which is about 800k to 1 mill
3 gen strat aren't that fun unless they 3 gen themselves then its hilarious.
Same thing I said to killer main
Are you facing survivors that see you and run and hide for the next 5 minutes? Because a smart survivor will run until he's not chased any more, and go right back to the gen. I regularly repair gens in the terror radius of killers when I know they're chasing someone else because there's nothing they can do to stop both of us
Mainly it's the early game I have an issue with if I get tier 3 99ed before yall do 3 gens it's over since I'm making sure one of you die before that final gem is popped. Last game today I ended the game at 3 gens with a merciless. It's mainly if they starve me or if they gen rush me is when I get destroyed
I faced survivors who played stealthy all game until I found one. Then they hopped on gens and just held m1 in groups. By the time of my second down 3 gens had popped and the 3 gen strat wasn't possible. Might I mention it was myers so getting to the first few gens was a trial on it's own. Really I think I'm not gonna be able to slow it down until I get corrupt intervention
I mean it sucks don't get me wrong, for any killer right now that needs a strong early game wind up we're stuck with using corrupt. But I will say this though you're maining Myers you could technically bank off the fact that you see a team rushing and drop in a NoED, the haste+the second wind on exposed....if they don't all book it out of the gates you can cause some serious damage. Or hell maybe even change it up a bit and bring knock out for quick slugs assuming they aren't in an SWF. Pop Goes the weasel is always good for mid game. Its tricky. I don't play Myers atm for some of these very reasons, but if you can get a decent snowball rolling by mid game and can consistently lock [BAD WORD] down at 2 gens, thats the sweet spot....if we only had 5 perk slots.....
Yes, a smart survivor will run until he's not chased anymore. And then he'll either waste time healing, or he'll work on the gens injured, and be an easy down later when you run into him when he's not in as good of a position. You have to spend your chases wisely.
it dumb when people say that I mean what the point in having all these killer if only 3 can handle a match.
I do thank you all for your input but I also wanna say this. When I play survivors my rank I do not get gen rushed as much. Only when I play red ranks is when everyone starts gen rushing hence my first 2 games of the day. My last match was against people my rank therefore I wasn't gen rushed as heavily.
Thing is I play more red ranks than purple ranks
Try out some gen perks or just pressure gens don’t try too hard with winning chases they don’t matter as much
