OMG it stacks with Resilience!?! Thanks for the informative and non-defensive reply.
LMFAO talking about not knowing where the Killer comes from xD
But seriously this is clearly an edge case, sick awareness by Feng.
And by these screencaps, you can clearly see you had no problems with it i.e 4k every time. Calling for Spine Chill changes is absurd.
In these cases I blame it a bit more on matchmaking. Not all of them were high level (not rank) players, else they wouldn´t have lost so hard to a Myers with only tacky earrings.
What I wanted to address is how prevalent it actually is. I´ve seen a post today with perks tracked of a thousand Survivors, SC was in the top ten whereas UB wasn´t for example.
My main complaint was never that it doesn´t have counterplay - it does, obviously, but it´s way too harsh, especially for Stalkers. Given how strong the perk is I think a nerf or some form of limitation is justified.
Thanks to @The_Krapper I´ve been made more aware of why it is so prevalent and I understand the reasoning behind it. I use SC myself.
My point stands though that it does what it does too well.
Spine chill is better than premonition because first of all, there are no false alarms with it, second, it has a shorter range as well which is good, third, it has no cool down, and fourth because it makes you do things faster.
No. The perk stays the way it is.
SC wasn't even a problem against EWI Myers back then. But since they added Undetectable status you are miled away before he's even there. Just give him his Detection Immunity back for EWI. Problem solved.
And they said "Having 0m TR all the time will benefit you more" at a time where 80% of Myers players ran M&A.
Smaller skill checks, uses a perk slot. Perks aren’t meant to have downsides other than not being able to use more perks or if their effect is extremely powerful
