Why have I got so bad?

PoweasPoweas Member Posts: 5,873

As survivor I've got worse then I used to be. I used to be the type of survivor to put up a 2-3 gen chase and do well but ever since I've started playing killer, I've done much worse in my survivor games and I don't play as well as I used to. I die to mindgames, fail to juke a killer correctly (except the window juke I'm still good at that) and I've started to do so bad on the newer maps with finding pallets and window loops. Can someone give advice for me to git gud. Or should I just start running windows of oppurtunity and learn the pallet locations? I still put up a 40 second chase but I do much worse nowadays :3.

    Maybe your subconscious is trying to avoid that you let others suffer from that playstyle you started to hate as killer.

    You are just out of practice.

    Record your matches and see what you fail at. But honestly, giving to the killer a 3 gens run nowadays means that killer is simply bad (and of course you should be good as well). Some time ago i gave a 5 gens run because the killer refused to break the pallet.

    I think.

    So It's because the killers I'm facing are much better then the old ones and that I don't have the same old crutches I used to have? Right now I run Sprint Burst, Iron will, Self care and Urban evasion. So I haven't got worse? I've just changed my style and I try not to make others suffer. Thanks guys. Btw @Vietfox I know all I suffer in is, Mindgames at T and L walls (when they keep backing up and then u eventually run into them) and Legion/Hag. Thanks a lot guys. Thanks for responding btw @popoles and @BeanieEnthusiast

    Lol I never got why people don't trap the ends of a dropped pallet after downing or losing the chase as they run over and get smacked by the hag same with trapper tarp dropped pallets and they waste time to free there loops or end up in a trap

    Well, killers are in a better spot than before, some killers need to be buffed yet but overall it's gotten better. Also some maps have been reworked in favour of killers.

    About perks, if you haven't been playing as survivor for long i advise you to check again all of them and see which ones really suit your playstyle. Many people use the typical "meta" build (or part of it) because that's what they see on videos and stuff, but not everyone know how to use it. IMO there are kinda unused perks that are really nice. But as i said, best way to improve, or to tell if your are failing at something, is to record your own matches and watch them again.

    About to make others suffer... as long as you are playing fairly it's fine. Flashlights or pallet saves might be annoying for killers but it's a damn game feature.
    In case you wanna know these are my builds.

    Solo build: kindred, bond, open handed (along with kindred shows killer's aura when within 16 meters from the hook >:)) and small game

    SWF build: i change it depending on what the others are running, but borrowed is a must IMO.

    Lithe suits my playstyle completely. And I'd totally run it but I haven't got it because of it not appearing in Shrine and I don't have Fengs DLC. Once that comes in shrine, I'm totally getting it. I had 600 hours on survivor on xbox (yeah double checked it yesterday it turns out I didnt have 300 like I thought I actually had double) and I know a fair bit about perks. I just need Lithe and Alert or maybe Botany knowledge to help me get back with nice builds. I got the alert teachable it's just that I've been levelling Billy a lot recently. Got 136 hours on PC and half of that is dedicated towards killers. Yesterday someone saw me in lobby and said '136 hours? #########' I'm guessing he didnt expect to see me at rank 7 lol.

    That seems like a chilled out build. I'll try it at some point.

    Yeah I used to run it but the healing nerf really annoyed me and I've been running botany knowledge ever since.

    Really it's 4 seconds why do people find that as a nurf when good medkit addons counter it and if you use sc run distortion to avoid it for as long as you can

    It's 8 seconds when you selfcare. I don't like to use items too btw. I do sometimes though.

    What playstyle is that? Escaping from the killer?

  • redsopine01redsopine01 Member Posts: 1,269
    Oh to clarify I ment calm spirit not self care
