So i had taken a break for a bit, normally i play alot of survior and killer to farm points basicaly, so I just played a game against a 3 man SWF running that combo, they werent very good and I killed them all at the end but they basically got like 10 free saves and BT.

Why are you allowed use those perks multiple times like that? It seems very op.

I have the clip but not sure how to upload it from PS4 , it was pretty funny but its so abuseable how is this a thing?

Edit: They also used WGLF, check out Aryun's newest vid to see how broken it is

    A) Wait 8 seconds before smacking the Survivor who got FTP'd

    B) Smack the Survivor who is now Forcibly Injured for roughly 2 minutes (90 seconds + Getting Healed)

    C) Option B but you notice the Survivor who got FTP'd is trying to Bodyblock for the other Survivor, swap to Option A.

    D) Play Vommy Mommy (Plague) 24/7 and cripple/invalidate their healing perks. :^)

    Lol D will make them stronger, they can heal up very fast because they dont need heals

    Ok, didnt think this was relevant they also used WGLF, completely forgot it got buffed. Aryun did a video showing how broken it is. You can basically pick someone up from the dying state faster than the killer can hit them, it is broken. Check his video all you need is soul gaurd and WGLF. For the people aint necessary i mae a mistake in the OP, Soul Gaurd and WGLF is broken

    there is another abusable combo but you wont win with it. get a swf all running soul guard, botany knowledge, and desperate measures and the killer can't stop you. meet up and just keep picking up whoever gets downed then have them take the hit to keep healing the next downed player. you pick up survivors at the same rate if not faster then a killer can down you all provided its not leatherface.

    New WGLF isn't broken lmao, infact I recently did a build with this perk where I used all healing perks

    I still couldn't pick up a dying state survivor fast enough

  • Jed_OlsenJed_Olsen Member Posts: 256

    I agree that is true, its not broken.

    But if 3 or more people run WGLF+Soul Gaurd that alone is enough but in my case they also used for the people. Those 3 perks used by 3 people simultaneously means unless your Bubba or PH the downed person can never get picked up. Do you not see the problem with that? I highly doubt they were intended to be used like this

    I never said WGLF is OP. You could at least read the post's before commenting something like that.

    Please people just watch Aryuns vid, im not trying to promote that gameplay but it is quite clearly broken when used like that

    Ayrun's video should not be used as justification for your nonsense. That was clearly a meme game as anyone would know by a minute in. Not that it matters for the specific combo they were running, but the Billy was using a speed limiter for chrissakes.

    It reminds me of old sabo squads. Annoying, but the objective is rarely being pushed by the survivors effectively.

  • Jed_OlsenJed_Olsen Member Posts: 256

    Your right, it is nonsense that i must down someone 5 or 6 times or slug the whole team to secure one hook, what happened in his video happened to me. It aint balanced one bit. It is funny tho but it is broken, lay your bias to one side and open your eyes, im a survior just like you, i only play killer for bp

  • aEONoHMaEONoHM Member Posts: 208

    Good lord... What you're crying about requires all 4 survivors to be swapping downs just to keep unslugging each other until they all basically bleed out. No gens are being done. Yes, maybe it's harder to get hooks but killers always win wars of attrition. Just enjoy smacking them over and over until they bleed out. A killer losing a game like the one you're mentioning should really stop and think about their lives.

    But then this seems like a stupid troll post. You can't be this dense.

  • Jed_OlsenJed_Olsen Member Posts: 256

    My last post on this i know it is ridiculous, but it only takes 3 survivors to pull this off. They had a random doing gens. It is very possible to win like this. I suck at killer i know, but i am speaking objectively with an open mind this is 100% unfair on killers at all ranks. Im done now lol

    the way they all just ignored the main concern in your post... I wonder if these are the same people that stan Decisive Strike.

    People have already said Soul Guard is a bs perk and they're gonna pretend its not.

    Someone on the ptb feedback was talking about this, how the new WGLF would make it difficult for the killer to get the downed survivor after smacking someone, before the other survivors got them up. I love the "just wait 8 seconds for soul guard to wear off" those 8 seconds are enough to heal up a downed survivor with WGLF, especially if there are two survivors performing the heal.

    I'm really interested in seeing what changes they are planning to do to deep wound. Maybe this'll make abusing multiple soul guards stop.

    How is it broken? It requires 4 survivors and even then, the killer can go for the one who wasn't picked up or wait 8 seconds after they figure out what the survivors are doing. If no gens are getting done, it doesn't really affect the killer.

    Nothing wrong with ds and it's been changed multiple times maybe it's time you git gud.

    eh, i dont think its op with ftp

    everyone using soul guard + wglf + botany + desperate measures though? you can literally double heal faster than the killer can hit you for most of the roster

  • Jed_OlsenJed_Olsen Member Posts: 256

    Did I explain this wrong or do people not read the thread?

    It REQUIRES only 3 survivors.1 to be downed 2 to heal

    Very important note here,in order to pick up a downed survior being healed the killer can only interupt survivors healing a dying survior is by hitting them. Keep that in mind,

    The 2 healers jump on the survior to heal ,by the time the killer hits them twice the downed player is up (They now have 8 seconds BT),

    Now all 3 are up so you down one of the others, and hit the other 2 while they pick up the person who just got downed, the person who just got up now has BT so they can safely heal one of the 2 downed players. , who will also get BT. ( whether you wait 8 seconds or not they still have enough time to pick up 1 survior, and yup you guessed it by the time you swing your weapon twice 1 is up )

    Once you've finally hooked a survior the others heal and its literally rinse and repeat

    Meanwhile the 4th player is grabbing gens while your out there downing each player 3-5 times to secure one hook

    To be clear im mot saying any of these perks individually are broken.

    If anyone reads this and still thinks its not broken then I am sorry, humanity failed you

    They CHOOSE to ignore your points. Literally Ayrun and JRM's videos are sufficient proof of why this needs to be addressed. WGLF Healing boost should be decreased to 50 / 75%. Or survivors preventing pick up by healing should be removed.
