2 perk archetypes that are pointless against good survivors
I'll try to keep this short. What I've found playing as killer is that some of the things I used to put value into, I don't anymore.
The first thing is info perks. Everybody loves to run BBQ. I don't, never really did. Whether it's that perk, Discordance, Surveillance, I'm All Ears, the information doesn't matter if the survivors are pressuring you enough, or if you can't get them. If you remembered survivors pushing a gen, and you come back to find it almost done or popped in your face, what did that info perk matter? What did it matter that you saw the aura of someone on the other side of the map? For chase info perks like I'm All Ears, what's it gonna change at a jungle gym for you to see the survivor's aura if they just wait at the corner and react before you even get close to them?
The second thing is gen defence. To me, survivors give your gen defence perks value. There's nothing you can do that makes your gen defence perks work. Whether it's Pop, Ruin, Surge, or Pain Resonance, the survivors have to get downed often for those perks to work, and against good survivors that just doesn't happen. Pop is notorious at this point for you getting 3 uses out of it all game, because survivors do gens in your face and do all the gens before you can cash it in. Ruin just gets destroyed, and survivors can push gens all the same even when it does get left up. As soon as survivors see Surge go off, they'll just hold forward to the other side of the map during chase. Pain Resonance doesn't have the worst activation conditions ever, but its regression can be undone in like 10 seconds. And base regression sucks, so what's the point in defending gens at all unless you've got these fruitless gen defence perks on?
That's just my take on those 2 aspects of killer. That's why me and some enlightened others are using Corrupt/Deadlock/No Way Out. Guaranteed slowdown. Gen defence and info don't matter, but these perks do somewhat matter.
Edit: Corrupt and Deadlock are more like gen delay than gen defence, because they don't regress. Just to push us away from that argument and focus of the main one.
