99ing gates is very bad

Here's a good idea, let's make some perks activate when exit gates open, then give survivors absolutely no incentive to open them until the exact moment they want to leave.

Survivors should lose all progress on the switch if they release it. Increasing the time it takes to power it up is not a solution. Maybe the gate could take 10 seconds to open instead instead.

Either way, If there is anything that survivors should be able to slowly inch open it should be the hatch. Make it so when the hatch can be reopened during end game collapse once it's closed. When survivors go to open it the killer can hear when it's almost open by a rattling sound it makes, but only when in 5 meters of it.

Now blood warden isn't useless, no on left behind isn't useless and survivors don't get undeserved escapes because one of the gates had a billion lockers near it.

    I believe Hybrid Panda speculated on such but opening the gates is slow as it is.

    I'm not sure about losing all progress on the gate switch as you mentioned. I would rather it slowly regress like a kicked gen does. I will say though, I can't even tell you how many times I've died at the gate because of it being 99'd as I run from the killer towards the gate. I prefer my teammates just go ahead and open it. I almost never see Blood Warden anyway.

    I do agree that gates should regress automatically as well (liked a kick gen)l. The two perks that trigger when gates are open, and someone is hooked are completely denied by this strategy, and those perks are already trash/not used.

    You realize having a swear in your title is going to break the quoting system so no one can quote anyone, right?

    Well now you do! I got 99 Problems but The Gate ain't one!

    I'm kind of torn on it. On one hand, it is super annoying, especially as someone who runs Blood Warden. On the other hand, I've actually taken out survivors because they 99 the Gate but that second it takes them to get to the box and squeeze through the gate opening has been enough time to get them killed.

    I don't know if having the Gates regress would be a good idea or not but I do think that having a perk (maybe attach it to "Remember Me") would be a good start. Go from there and see how it works out and decide from there if that is something that would work out well for the general gate or keep it a perk thingy

    I have a perk idea for this

    Killer Perk: Slow Exit, Show Stopper, End Of The Show




    You have a way of making your presence known, even at the end of the show.




    When a exit gate is within your terror radius and left unattended, regress any exit gate progress by 5%/10%/15%


    Activates when exit gates are powered.


    "I always had a way of stealing the show"


    Or


    "It's not over till the fat lady sings"

    I am on board with the exit gate swith slowly regressing when not held down, but I think having to start from scratch immediately is a bit much.

  • BigTimeGamerBigTimeGamer Member Posts: 1,752

    its fine as it is, but if a change is needed: Killers can "kick" door switch for progress and i guess make pop work with it

  • Hex_StalkHex_Stalk Member Posts: 488

    If they let go, after ten seconds the gates progress begins to regress. Boom, fixed 99ing the gates

  • Mr.FlexOGMr.FlexOG Member Posts: 45

    In hindsight, I think regression is a much better idea. But it should regress at the same rate it progresses when multiple survivors are alive.

    Regressing nah. Just 2 options open or close.

  • SolomonkaneSolomonkane Member Posts: 59

    I think they should give Remember Me a gate regression effect. It would buff a more niche perk.

  • katoptriskatoptris Member Posts: 2,475

    Killer going to need to hooked someone for the gate switch then. It should slowly regressed just like mending goes down.

    Regressing gates would make it nearly impossible for the last remaining survivor to escape against experienced killers.

    When there’s just enough time inbetween the killer making their rounds between exit gates, the survivor must open the gate just enough to make some progress before the first, “Hey, someone’s definitely over here!” indicator light is activated...

    (at which point the killer never leaves that area until they find them; especially when EGC is already ticking down to their doom, it’s like a death sentence)

    ...then quickly hide before the killer paces back over to check the gate before returning to the other, when the survivor can then finish opening the gate and avoid being caught in the act, or hit (noed?) before they have a chance to run through and escape; especially with speedy killers.

    To be fair, the gates would have to stop regressing at a certain progress point, or only start regressing if they reach a certain progress point, to still allow for this strategic play.
