Killer need 5 perks slots

Most of the combo killer have need at best 2 perks and don't leave room for different builds and a new way to play, and no killers like Doc, nurse etc will not be OP with one more perk slot.

    Nurse with 5 perks slots would be pretty much impossible to beat and a Billy with 5 or even Spirit with 5 would be broken.

    First only killer will get 5 perks and second tell me the ultra combo nurse and bill ( the top tier killer) will have with 5 perks?

    Bitter Murmur, Tinker, Rancor, M&A, Sloppy etc because any 5 perks on the top tier killers would be broken.

    And why should only killers get 5 perks?

    I mean... If you want to use certain perks, you have to do without other perks. Its the same, for killers and survivors.

    @powerbats i don't know about tinker but yes the other perk is good BUT if you want to play to win a killer need 1) ruin 2) bbq 3) maybe sloppy and this is the meta right now you only have 1 perk at best free and besides if the nurse or bill is better than you, they will still win even without perks.

    @Aven_Fallen like?

    The whole point of having just the 4 perks, is to balance what you really need. You don't need to run meta perks, as it is completely possible to win the game without them. Saying you absolutely need to run ruin, bbq, and sloppy, isn't true. Are they helpful? Of course! But that's like saying to play survivor, you need to run self care, some form of exhaustion perk, and maybe something like borrowed time.

    They help, but it's possible to win without them. BBQ is completely unnecessary. I run it mainly for the stacks, the tracking others is a plus. You don't need to run ruin, either. You'll just have to put a lot more pressure on survivors. Sloppy isn't even that good, in my personal opinion, unless you're running a build that it's main focus is slowing things down.

    And I still don't understand your point of only killers getting five perks? Why not survivors? It would make the game unbalanced, and favor the killer.

    No this is a terrible idea.

    I don't think this will make the game unbalance. I really think is one easy way to balance the game because
    1) Killers don't get buff ( at least without same nurf for no reason )
    2) They will only nerf the top perk ( work only for killers no the other way) and when buff week perks they make it work with same stupid way.
    3) Even fun/meme build can work with 4 slots, many of them need at least 3 in order to work correctly.

    Well yeah killers would be blatantly overpowered like @powerbats said. This would destroy everything the game has been working on so far and Solo survivor would have absolutely no chance of working. I play both killer and survivor and this is the kind of suggestion an ENTITLED killer main would make. Most sensible killer mains at least have some way of making it fair for survivors

    I have 2
    1) only solo survivor get 5 perks
    2) Solo and killer have 4 but the swf have 3 at best

    There ya go. That's something sensible. Only solo survivor gets 5 perks is actually overpowered but the idea 2 is good. I'd give solo survivor a built in kindred to make it equal to SWF and give killers buffs to catch up to solo and SWF.

    I don't have a problem to give a suggestion to make it balance but in order to do it i want someone to point out. You see the point of this post is to see how far killer and survivors will go.

    You actually don't need Ruin and you will actually do better without it because it's a crutch like DS since it rewards you for being less skillful.

    I mained Spirit at rank 1 and never used it and still could do well most of my matches but with Ruin you depend on it staying up way to much.

    To me it's a wasted perk slot like DS is since it can be used or not depending on the circumstances since as a killer it can get cleansed. But you can also have survivors that hit great skill checks and power right through it.

    As a survivor the killer may never go after you so it's basically a wasted perk slot, you can run into a Doctor or another killer running UP. You can get dribbled or dropped on stairs into the basement or slugged etc.

    If it was a hex slot only maybe... but that sort of idea would break the freedom of build variety so devs wouldnt do that unless they make hexs super strong and not make hexs like huntress lullaby

    I think killer need 5 perks too because I want to install ruin as a standard.

    Gotta disagree with this, killers are in a good spot. Also giving killers 5 perks would mean survivors would need 5 perks and it would just completely break the game balance in my opinion.

    Killers being in a good spot would be correct if your not in red ranks cause without ruin you can usually just do all the gens before first hook if your against a decent full 4 because there are still to many pallets in the map. killers are better then they were 2 years ago but not by much.

    I definitely feel ya dude, when I'm not running Ruin I feel like I'm putting myself at a big disadvantage

    I've never run Ruin at red ranks still do just fine in most matches.

    Yes that's what I made it for so use away to your hearts content.

    I disagree.

    The solution is to fix the core problems of the game and not forcing us to use perks to fix these core problems

    But devs either don't know how or don't want because will ruin the "fun".

    Or they are too lazy (hex mechanic e.g.)

    No this is the ideal way to "Balance" the game and give the killer a change.
