I wouldve prefered to get like a BP or shard reward even.
I believe they are adjusting prestige levels to compensate. So a character that is P3 level 50 with all perks might be P6 or higher after the update. I'm not sure how its calculated, but they said prestige levels would be adjusted accordingly and not just for characters that have never prestiged.
I understand it might not be much, especially since characters that reached P3 already have the bloody cosmetics, but it is something.
For me, it was a good change for the most, because i had to try perks i usually wouldn´t use. However, if your goto-perks are not available, it really hurts, so you are kind of right on that.
Yeah trying new perks is something that I always liked doing
But after 15 matches in a row in which you cannot for the life of god have Second Wind to be useful you get tired of having to use ######### perks over and over again, and I'm talking about survivor, try playing a killer you like (so at least decent MMR) with below average perks
Yes, it's very disappoiting to get FU'd by a SWF Squad or a Killer while playing with the trash perks RNG granted to you. For each character at least 3 times! And now we get slapped in our face for our stupidity - BHVR calls this a reward!
