My NOED Rework---An Earned Power Play
If you get 8/7/6 hooks before the last Generator is completed a broken totem will be rebuilt into a Hex totem granting you a 4% speed boost and gives Survivors the Exposed status effect until the totem is broken. Once the totem is destroyed the Collapse begins. If no totems have been broken during the trial a random dull totem will be selected.
No One Escapes Death is a problem for Solo Survivors, like myself. The main problem we/they have is that no one knows if anyone has been breaking totems, they can break 2 but can't find the others and pray that someone else did them. My idea turns this problem into a counter, if 1 Survivors breaks maybe 2 totems then at the end of the match one of those totems comes back in the form of NOED and that Survivor knows where those totems were and will instantly go back to see which one it was. If all the totems were destroyed then, again all the Survivors know the locations of the totems so they can go back and search each one. Now if the Survivors were lazy then they run into the same problem they have now and not know where NOED is and that's their fault for lazy.
Now on the Killers' side a lot of players don't like the perk because it's not earned, it rewards bad play, you lost the game but you got a huge reward and to some that feels cheap. Others don't like that it's very powerful or too common so they steer away from it. This change makes sure that you have to earn that power, you need to be at least decent in the match in order to get that Exposed status. [BAD WORD] Killers who can't win without this perk will no longer be winning because they need to git gud, they need to show the Entity that they are worthy of that ultimate power.
Now I also added in that the Collapse starts when the totem is destroyed as a bonus. The Collapse is meant to push out players who won't leave and this perk is about no one escaping so I thought it would up the intensity of the last moments for the trial. Sure your totem was destroyed but that doesn't mean you got completely dominated, the Collapse starts and they need to leave. I don't think it's overpowered because a lot of people open the Gates when they see NOED is active anyway because it's really dangerous to stick around. I was debating to include that 30 seconds was taken off the timer as well but thought it might be too much.
Also please note that I have nothing against NOED, I love the perk and salty Survivors who complain nonstop about it disgust me. But I am not naive and I do know that Solo Survivors have a difficult time with getting all the totems because they have no information like SWF do. I also did this because I like doing it, it's really fun :)
