Why do people open up gates straight away

jamally093jamally093 Member Posts: 805

This is in a survivor view if you notice a teammate is injured or on a hook why open the gate because if that injure teammate isn't near by they can go down and if the killer has blood Warden congrats you've just screwed yourself. Isn't the point to help others you can rescue and block to prevent any problems the killer may cause why open up the gate straight away instead of 99% it.

    Depends on the distance from the gate to the hook. Last thing you want is to get downed after opening the gate. If BT will get them out, you should open the gate 100 percent. or if you're worried about noed

    if the game has been boring and we've done gens wth thje killer only having 1/2 hooks I'll just leave to give the killer a chance

    inexperience... obviously they never got hit with blood warden unless they just open it to leave immediately.

    If I 99% a gate or not really depends on the situation. The smart play is always to play to what is happening and not some preset ideal that you must do someone always a certain way.

    It was not unusual for me to open gates straight away by mistake.

    Far too used to the lack of EGC.

    HA, HAHA... the killer running BLOOD WARDEN...😂😂😂😂, What a joke

  • RyuhiRyuhi Member Posts: 2,576

    you died to hoping the exit gate would be open even though you had zero evidence it was. More often than not, you'd even have evidence that it ISN'T open if there is no EGC. Instead of evaluating your routing and game sense, you're blaming other players. Work on that and you'll be in that situation less often.

    Even then, just bring dead hard and a antiseptic or any of the other second chances and you'll still win out. Even with the changes to conspicuous actions including the exit gate there will still be ways to endurance out the door after opening it if your timing and spacing are on point.

    Honestly I think its more about the timer than blood warden. The EGC puts a limit on a lot of tactics like hook trading, so preventing it from starting as long as possible increases survival chances across the board. And if you're one of the people who thinks 99ing kills more than it saves, you can always 99 the exit and sit there waiting for the grizzly death defying chase to come and just tap the button and body block their way out.

    Yeah, that's fair, but OP was worried about BW... hence the comment

  • RyuhiRyuhi Member Posts: 2,576

    When you think about it, BW could have extremely strong synergy with the EGC timer, but the wild thing about 99ing gates is that it nullifies both at once as an action any player can do, which makes taking a perk for that situation that much more unappealing. Part of the reason BW is such a meme is because people are constantly countering its existence at the same time as they're prolonging the EGC timer. Otherwise you might see more endgame NWO/BW builds on killers with less gen defense/mobility.

    or i'll just open the door whenever I can and not do any of that, better for me that way

  • FeryGENFeryGEN Member Posts: 451

    I am a solo player, if I ran the whole mathc from the killer or repaired 4 gens, then this is my right, each match is unique, but I can say about some of my escapes like this, if you ran to save someone and became a victim, your teammates will not do it for the sake of the same in 90% of cases. So I run and let them die.

    ...and worse for your teammates. Im sure you'll appreciate when others do the same and immediately leave and let you get killed on your first hook because there's nobody left to make the save. or they open it immediately and stay, and either get trapped by BW or don't have enough time for everyone to heal up and make a bodyblock congo line to save you. Either way you're not making a very educated play if thats how one dimensional you perceive it.

    I am constantly doing tomes and often it's "use x perks and escape" etc so often I am not endangering my tome challenge for another persons escape, without challenge i try to help though

    I was on RCPD against Myers. I came up to the gate in the back where Nea had 99'd it. I kept my distance from the gate and waited up top by the crashed helicopter ledge looking over the gate.

    Sure enough, the injured Claudette comes running through the doorway and goes down in front of the gate. Myers quickly recovered with STBFL, hits Nea as she runs to the switch, and downs her immediately after she opens it.

    I dropped down with balance and got out of there.


    All it takes is for Myers to turn the corner, quick-stalk, and then down everyone with Evil Within III, which is why I kept my distance.

    I always open the gates straigth away. 2(4)mins is plenty of time to get everyone healed up, organize a rescue atempts and even trade a few hooks. If the killer has Blood Warden, at least they get some value out of it instead of it getting countered by a tactic that anyone can use without nearly any drawbacks and it turns the egc a bit more interesting instead of just a dull twerking and flashlight clicking fest before zooming off.

    I leave when I want to - Solo Queue Privilege ;3

  • TotemSeeker91TotemSeeker91 Member Posts: 1,821

    Yeah, I get that, if they did something different with ECG, I'm sure BW would see more love

  • BranBran Member Posts: 1,693

    Because they think 99'ing is stupid (someone else besides me).

  • FancyMrBFancyMrB Member Posts: 1,230

    99 has killed me more than just opening the gate. If we as a team cannot get the unhook and escape when the gate timer starts we deserve to die. The timer is very slow...

    As for bloodwarden I have been hit with 4 times... And I have been playing since 2018. I will take my chances!

  • PirscherPirscher Member Posts: 573

    I do it for the extra blood points - late unhook, late healing.

    Also, Blood Warden is easy to play around because it can only last a minute.

    I've been playing since 2017, so I know what I'm doing =)

  • BrimpBrimp Member Posts: 1,661

    Idk why does someone 99 a gate then leave it. That probably screws people more than blood warden.

  • UnknownKillerUnknownKiller Member Posts: 2,277

    Becuz depending of what surv lvl you playing with you know the outcome its gonna be favorable to killer so I pass to gift hooks to the killer
