2 Days playing 2.7 patch and...
My friend and I have played the new patch update for two days on PS4 and here are some thoughts. Take them as you will:
I LOVE the fact there is no longer hatch stand offs. It's about time. It needed to happen. I also like the CONCEPT of the EGC. The main problem with it is now a double edged sword.
The EGC makes jerks leave, which I like. However, it removes a killers ability to get more kills late game. There is no incentive for people to come save some "bait" from a hook. They just leave and get their rewards (BPs) which leaves the killer kinda screwed with no BPs to show for it. Where is the killers rewards for making up time at the end?
I can already hear some of you saying "Be a better killer and prevent people from getting that far". That's all well and good and I "GIT it" but sometimes it's just not possible. Sometimes you just get boned by a SWF group or some very well-coordinated solo players. Sometimes you are trying to learn a new killer just released or you just bought etc. Regardless, my point is the EGC removes late game kills and I haven't decided if it's a fair trade for getting people to leave sooner instead of taunting you at the exit gates or not.
The only other big issues I encountered were when playing Legion, to see how he felt now (Slow... he feels slow). SO MANY DISCONNECTS! Holy bawls. Multiple games and multiple DCs. I know it's "chic" to do that against Legion so whatever but DCs rob the killer of their points. I want to see DCs give killers a crazy amount of BPs (unless you are in KYF so you can't just farm BPs thru DCs). I assume when/if dedicated servers happen it will be less of an issue or some such, but it's happening NOW and it's irritating and feels like a waste of time.
