Message to people with 1k hours or more

There is 0 excuse once you have over a thousand hours to not know what all the perks and addons do. No reason whatsoever. It's amazing to me how many survivors with 3k hours or even more don't know what killer addons do. That tells me you never play killer. Im a big advocate for playing both sides due to this. Playing both sides makes you better at your main role. There's no excuse when you have 1k hours to not know what nurses calling is (Got called a wall hacker by a claud with 4k hours). Same goes for killer at 1k+ hours you should know what BT,DH, Ironwill,etc do. Anyway you get my point. End of rant.

    It isn't that much effort to know everything. I don't even use half the perks in this game but when I see them used I can name what perk they are using. It's just about paying attention to the descriptions.

    I have just about 1k hours. Ive played a lot more killer then survivor but played enough survivor to know what perks do what and items and addons. Good post, people need to educate themselves on either side to have a proper understanding of the game in my opinion.

  • HR_HeliosHR_Helios Member Posts: 178

    None of that had anything to do with my post. I don't "sweat" In this game I play to have fun. It just baffles me how you can have that many hours and not know what all the perks do. Even if you don't use them it's insane to me.

    or just have fun and when someone says something that is somewhat ignorant just say GG <3. It really helps :)

  • HR_HeliosHR_Helios Member Posts: 178

    When I said addons I mean the ones that have a great impact on the game mostly. I don't expect everybody to know the add-ons that take 5% off of specific action. Cause that's so miniscule it might as well not matter. But stuff like Barbs glasses and Black heart more recently on demo should be known cause it makes a great impact on the game

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 12,439

    I've got well over 3K hours and I know pretty much every item/add-on

    It also helps that I read fast.

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 3,593

    I learned a lot just from reading perks and add on descriptions in the endgame screen. I never used 70% of them but I know what they do

  • HR_HeliosHR_Helios Member Posts: 178

    THIS. That's all it takes! Just being attentive is all it takes

  • GrimmGaliardGrimmGaliard Member Posts: 258

    That requires you to see them all in action and remember them. For example: I didn't even know The Twins perks existed until last week, because I've only gone against two. I've fought maybe 4 Demos, I can't tell you jack ######### about what all his add-ons do. Same for Trickster, Blight, Nemesis probably some others.

    Because it's not that serious. Sure, I'll get surprised every few games and someone like you will go rant on the forums, but... So what?

  • NeamyNeamy Member Posts: 221

    I remember the first time as a survivor that BBQ was used, I was hiding I thought and he ran right up to me and got me. Was totally like #########, till I saw his perks after

  • HR_HeliosHR_Helios Member Posts: 178

    You should know he has an addon that can increase it to 70 though it isn't super impactful so I'd honestly let that one slide.

  • HR_HeliosHR_Helios Member Posts: 178

    When it comes to addons I mostly mean the impactful ones, like the ultra rares, and things like Barbs glasses and black heart for demo. Things that if you know them you can play around them

  • Torsti56Torsti56 Member Posts: 259

    So you count every blade he throws? I'll call that stupid and unnecessary thing to do. Same goes for Clown's Smelly Inner Soles add-on. Are you like "OH MY GOD, he is faster when he is reloading". Let's be real, people should not learn what EVERY add-on do, perks and best add-ons are enough.

  • humanbeing1704humanbeing1704 Member Posts: 6,611

    I was definitely confused the first time I went against a iridescent seal plague considering no one uses that

  • OmegaXIIOmegaXII Member Posts: 2,060

    It's hard to know every single perk and add-ons in the game to be honest.

    I mainly play killer, and I don't even know half the add-ons killers have because I don't use any LOL.

  • BioXBioX Member Posts: 1,378

    just to point out a flaw in that logic, you could have had that 1000 hours in the first year of the game well before all the other dlc and new content was out that you wont have any knowledge off.

  • Aven_FallenAven_Fallen Member Posts: 11,507

    True, even tho, you cannot play around Add Ons when they simply make the power of the Killer better without any other effect.

    However, it would be nice if Add Ons would have meaningful ways to be detected. Like, I can see if Billy uses his Chargetime Add-On, because he is slower.

    However, when I look at Spirit, neither of their Add Ons gives ANY indication. Like, I can never see if she has a fast Power Recovery, if she has a fast Power activation... I cannot even see if she is using MDR (which would mean I am allowed to run), because her power is designed in a way to give no information, which makes it impossible to guess her Add Ons.

    (Just another thing which adds how stupid this Killer is, if people actually know what her Add Ons do but have no way to detecting them)

  • ZozzyZozzy Member Posts: 4,459

    You would be shocked at how many profiles i have looked at that have 3k+ hours and don't even have the 100 kills achievement or even half way into the 1000 kills achievement

  • gendossgendoss Member Posts: 2,199

    Well if you were genuinely called a wall hacker by a person who has 4k hours I'm just assuming those hours were faked/idled. Nurse's Calling is like a perk that literally everybody learns about when they have 10 hours, let alone 4 thousand.

  • BronzeHandModelBronzeHandModel Member Posts: 114

    Maybe you ran into a very stupid or toxic surv, who cant stand loosing. But i never played against survs with 1k + hours who doesnt understand the most used killer perks

    I do know what every perk does but you can't expect people to know every addon

    This is obviously a post from someone who must win every game and t-bag and click a flashlight everytime the killer is close. If the team loses there will be no faulting the op on their performance in the trial at all as they did everything correctly.

    As a killer there will be no misses at all with the swings and every match below a 4k is an utter defeat. The survivors will never use the perks as intended because the op will never let them.

    Op is perfection personified, the king/queen of all role models for the game and everyone must follow their example.

    This post comes across as toxic to me, or even more so as though you are scolding a child. We all cannot remember every single perk and add ons that has and will ever exist, the meta ones yes, the powerful ones yes, the average ones are a good possibility but not guaranteed. The junk ones not worth anything but a meme build, forgettable. All the info will be in our minds but some of them we may not be able to recall, especially the newer ones until we get used to them and imprint them into our minds.

    Maybe Claudette did know but was just acting dumb to either get you riled up, which obviously worked, or was sour that she lost that she blanked it from her mind.

    We can't all be gods at the game like you and neither should we be expected to be. A lot of people play for fun, not for 4ks or escapes every match, not training to be part of a pro team. Escapism and fun is all a lot require to enjoy the game.

    End of rant

    There are a grand total of 179 perks and 544 add-ons (not including event and decommissioned add-ons), plus 24 killer powers. If you, OP, are so certain that you know them, then write them ALL down, from memory. No checking any online resources or asking for help. And yes, I want numbers for everything, as well as what the icons look like.

  • ToastfaceKillaToastfaceKilla Member Posts: 574

    Back at 1000 hours I probably did have every perk and add on memorised. Now i'm at 3.5k hours I simply don't care that much anymore.

    I just play to have fun/progress the rift now, tha's it. It's the correct way to play.
