I’m talking about standing pallets.

Give it a massive cool down for all I care, or a token system like Coup De Grace. SOMETHING, PLEASE!

But some loops are so infuriating with how it’s possible for “just out of reach” survivors can get in 4, 5, 6+ laps before they drop the damn pallet. It’s really aggravating that there’s a base Entity mechanic to stop Survivors abusing the same vault, but nothing that can stop Survivors doing this many laps around a loop with a pallet if the survivor has favourable spacing.

THIS is the problem in this game, not gen times. Looping taking absurdly long times In comparison to how much repair time that can be done.

    The entity blocker might as well not even exist. Idk if you've heard of shift tech, but I used it on Shack, and it became an infinite. I never got in chase, so I never got blocked.

    Also, I don't think that that would be fair. You could just create deadzones, even with a cool down. Use a perk like that in a three gen and they have no chance.

    I mean Hex: Blood Favor blocks pallets from being droped if you hit a survivor. That's something.

    They really need to fix the pallet rng. I can play on Midwich and have to go through 24 pallets and then play on Pale Rose and go through 5. It's not much fun to have chase someone as pig through pallet city or get ran down by a killer because there are 0 pallets around

    Fine, just give it 3 tokens, and that’s it. Loop giving you a real problem, spend one token to break the pallet. Can only do it 2 more times.

    I'd rather the perk allow the killer to pallet stun the survivor, even if just once a match, for the lol's.

    How about you earn a token each time you are stunned by a pallet. You can spend a token to drop a pallet.

    Maybe 1 use per 3 hooks? That's maximum 3 uses.

    The only way they can do this is if they standardize the number of pallets that spawn, which they should do too. 10 feels like the right number.

    The only problem with pallet looping is that the huge hitbox killers have is a disadvantage in general because killers who are supposed to be 10 or 15% faster are artificially slower due to the fact they can't take turns as well as survivors can. I don't think a perk could mitigate that. In fact I don't even think it's a problem that needs to be fixed ASAP, you shouldn't be getting looped 4~6 times in a single pallet.

  • TheClownIsKingTheClownIsKing Member Posts: 6,278

    This can happen with some loops, against survivors with good spacing that also keep their cool.

    This sounds like a band-aid fix at best and a really bad idea at worst.

  • MadLordJackMadLordJack Member Posts: 8,815

    I mean, given that predropping pallets and holding W is such an effective strategy, I think that the gens really are the problem and really do need a rework for everyone's sakes.

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 7,097

    Perhaps we could go for an unlikely alternative solution: revert the maps back to their old versions. And not just the graphics, but the loops too.

    Maybe giving players some of the old structures back will motivate them to return to a different mentality, as we've discussed before. That might be a fix for this problem.

  • MadLordJackMadLordJack Member Posts: 8,815

    Maybe for really casual players, but if we're being perfectly honest the damage has been done. You'd need to wipe people's pre-midwich memories (I think that was the map that made everyone go "Oh, sprinting forward is really strong!"). No team doing the old predrop-and-W strat cares about having fun chases, not when they're prethrowing Jungle Gyms and Shack, and now everyone also knows the importance of just doing the generators too.

    I honestly feel that the only way is to completely rework how generators are repaired. Then we could potentially set every map to Cowshed levels of insanity because those kinds of chases would be way less impactful.

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 7,097

    It could work for veterans and long-time players. I mean, I am sure we all remember how to run Old Ironworks of Misery or Torment Creek.

    I prefer to have a general change, not using perks to fix the problem. However, we can have a perk that interacts with pallets just for the fun of it.

    Death Fury

    Losing all patience, you use the Entity to your advantage.

    After hooking all survivors once, gain 4 tokens. When a survivor passes a standing pallet without dropping it, the Entity will block it for 6/8/10 seconds while consuming a token.

    Best Blood

    You won't let defenses get in your way.

    Hooking a survivor will cause all pallets within 12 meters from each survivor to be blocked by the Entity for 40/50/60 seconds.

    Best Blood is disabled upon sacrificing a survivor.

  • KingFrostKingFrost Member Posts: 3,014

    So basically just erase shack pallet from the game?

  • TattooJakeTattooJake Member Posts: 158

    If a survivor is getting 6+ laps on a loop you are either worshiping the pallet or you are not hugging the loop close enough and allowing them distance. STOP RESPECTING PALLETS!!! Slap on enduring and eat them all for lunch and hug loops as tight as possible. Do this correctly and a survivor MAY get 2 rounds before they either get hit or are forced to throw the pallet.

  • van9684van9684 Member Posts: 433

    Well that’s the point. It takes a while to get good at looping so why constantly penalize survivors who practiced to get good at game? They can’t hit back, are slower, and have abysmal perks used mainly to combat tunneling.

    killers have become so used to easy 4K games and have made that their definition of fun. It’s too bad as it really makes the game unfun.

    They have already tweaked most maps into having less pallets, dead zones and weak loops. Some loops are so weak that even if you stun the killer he can still catch up to you within a few feet from the loop, all that combined with the fact that most killers if not all have a way to hit you over a pallet makes it ridiculous that some players still complain. I have almost never been looped 6 times while playing killer myself, it's usually 1 or 2 if you mind game and know what you are doing (only exception being one of the few god windows still left on the game on haddonfield) at this point you probably need to get better at the game.

    Picture is where I spawned (using windows of opportunity) pretty much a free hit, at this point behavior is treating killers as babies who need to be spoonfed free hits.
