Hemorrhage affecting survivor recovery - Why I think it's a bad idea
[Since this is now confirmed as intended by design, I've rewritten my initial thoughts]:
So, let's start with the tactic of slugging and why I think this not only heavily incentivises and rewards it but also forces survivors into lose/lose situations
1) By default survivors cannot move and recover, meaning they have to make a choice the moment the killer decides to slug them - crawl away from the area and not be recovered I.E wasting more of their teammates time or recover on the spot and THEN begin crawling toward their teammates for a pickup.
2) A survivor who is in the dying state is essentially out of the game without certain perks, which effectively turns a 4 v 1 into a 3 v 1 temporarily, this is why anti-slugging perks are somewhat commonplace in coordinated teams as it is the most time effective manner of dealing with the tactic
On paper, against some killers this change isn't a big deal as they lack the capability and more importantly, lethality/mobility to fully capitalise on the pressure however I feel the need to point something out:
Insta-down killers & the high mobility killers such as Nurse/Blight now have an even easier time slugging an entire team to death because now slugged survivors either stay still and recover (aka the killer can't lose them) or they move and have to wait a long time to be healed which quite frankly won't happen against these high pressure killers
One of the big risks when it comes to slugging as a playstyle is the fact that you can lose your slugs, this mechanic essentially nullifies that. The other big risk is anti-slugging perks. It's a gamble.
This will be a boon (no pun intended) to the killers who already excell when slugging - Oni, Twins, Blight, Nurse, Bubba and will help the M1 killers who can easily capitalise on survivor mistakes by slugging without going out of their way to do it but I really don't think the stronger killers like Nurse or Blight need something like this to increase their pressure.
If this change makes it to live (which It could - I'm not demanding people get the pitchforks out or anything), anti-slugging perk stonks will be through the roof which I'm sure the killers not running hemorrhage related stuff will not appreciate.
