Can crutch perks carry you to rank 1 (as killer)?
A streamer I like always talks about how a lot of rank 1 killers get there simply because the undying + ruin combo carry them to that spot. And I wonder if that is possible. I play with that combo a lot on Nurse when I play during (PC) SWF red-rank (mostly) primetime and notice it does put in a lot of work (the games are much slower). But when I play (what seems to be) solo survivors and/or rainbow ranks, I'll swap out ruin for devour hope (, which kind of isn't the best use of 2 slots w/ undying and probably is better with some other perks, but its fun). I tend to 4k these matches a lot, but the Red rank (SWF?) squads I won't 4k really (maybe 2k). I also play Legion at rank 1 and tend to 4k a lot (unless against all red-rank SWF) with the ruin+undying, as well as a play style where I just make games take forever and survivors use up all the pallets until they down. Both killers I run add-on less. Are these crutch perks carrying me ? lol
