Need to do use it 1 time only because surviviors like to abuse this.I think killer don't know what distance need to go from hook that this perk not will activated.So will better if surviviors gameplay will be difficult...the more SWF! ur thought?

    @indieeden7 if u was caught its only survivior's troubles then play stealth's....rework need that survivors use it when it necessary but not abuse it every time...survivors like abuse all things and borrowed time specially! :D

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 409

    @Sasori_puppet surviviors can talk to toher surviviors through discord "hey he stay with insidious don't go"

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 409

    and surviviors not feel fear because they know that for example borrowed time work more times...why need scare if u know it?i think need rework and adrenaline too adrenaline for example delete 150% speed...that survivors feel fear little bit and play not for fun play with careful

    @NoShinyPony 15 sec so long and u know it

    You could prevent them from abusing it by not tunnelling

    Borrowed time only activates when someone is unhooked in terror radius. So if it activated on you, it was by your own decision to stay that close to the hook instead of pressuring gens. And that you come to the conclusion someone had it on them, is only because you decided to tunnel the person on the hook instead of the rescuer. I dont feel ever sorry for that. Borrowed time only activates on people who play back to the hook plays and complain about gen rushing. Everyone else, who tries to play normally, dont encounter BT so much. Bt is a result of your own play style. Just like Noed is the fault of the survivors not cleansing, Bt is the result of killers fault to hook camp and tunnel. Deal with it.

    @LordGlint I idint tell that is bad perk I only said that need this perk will make limited because surviviors abuse it

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,220

    If you go into every match always assuming survivors have it...it'll never surprise you. Between BT and DS, always assume a survivor who was freshly unhooked has it. Like I said, I think BT is in a good spot. I play killer like 95% of the time, and it really never bothers me.

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 409

    @LordGlint ok but u remember why for example Legion was nerfed because devs said "more players complain that legion always abuse frenzy and it made him unbearable" but why survivors can abuse perks and killers no...for example myers can not abuse play with food because they complain to this perk that killer abuse it and go fast nerf it...

    Dont tunnel if you dont want to be affected by borrowed time or just wait 15 seconds during a chase with the previous hooked one before hitting. Borrowed time is fair.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,220

    You can do wonders with play with your food if you know what your doing.

    Have an example:

    Making use of BT isnt really ABUSING it, but rather just giving a survivor a chance to get to a safer location that they otherwise might not have the time to get to. BT more or less buys the unhooked survivor 15 seconds of time.

    As far as your comment on Legion, Legion was changed due to the fact that his power took any sort of counterplay in chases completely off the table. Chases against old legion were more or less just a matter of time on when the survivor he was chasing would drop. While his killrate wasnt high, the fact that as a survivor, you pretty much were never going to actually win a chase made him pretty dull to go again.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,220

    Meh, even if you get around BT... your asking to eat a DS if you pick the guy up. I find it best to either leave the guy to mend or slugged if you can chase after the unhooker after getting a hit in.

  • phantasmalphantasmal Member Posts: 143

    So if it activated on you, it was by your own decision to stay that close to the hook instead of pressuring gens.

    Eeeeeh, that part is not really correct. Survivors can very much force BT to activate. Like save instantly before the killer had a chance to walk more than 2m. Or baiting the killer back to the hook by leaving a scratch mark trail for them to follow.

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,220

    Typically if theyre unhooking THAT quickly, theyre asking for a quick grab. I cant tell you how many times Ive grabbed survivors who think theyre being sneaky by unhooking as soon as the hook animation finishes. By keeping awareness of your immediate surroundings, this wont happen.

    As far as what you said with the scratch marks...hit the guy leaving the scratch marks, lol. By all means, hit the freshly unhooked guy if its easy, you can waste his time by making him mend. Ultimately though, your sights should be set on the guy who was leaving the scratches though. BT or not, picking up ppl who were just off the hook is ASKING to eat a DS.

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 409

    @Pigster what is mean not tunneling???ahahaha maybe u mean nit to catch surviviors? :D

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,220

    They mean instead of aiming to rehook the person who was JUST on the hook, try downing and hooking the rescuer instead.

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 409

    I need to choose who I will catch...problem with BT only that SURVIVIORS ABUSE IT EVERY TIME!why u not hear me????

    And everyone else in this post is saying that you should go for the unhooker instead of unhooke.

    Do you think DS is a problem?

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 2,494

    If I'm in a chase and they lead me back to a hooked survivor, I assume the newly unhooked survivor is protected by BT and continue after the unhooker. Sometimes I'll the unhooked one just to force them to go mend (or possibly get a slug, if the unhooker was an ass without BT), but it's best to assume survivors have BT. And, if there's an obsession, play like every survivor has DS.

    As a survivor, BT is very useful for when the killer camps hooks, and it can make for some great end-game saves. As killer, if you play around it, it's usually not a problem.

    Stop camping.

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 409

    @Milo no DS not problem for me because surviviors not abuse it...only 1 time can use it...but BT its abusing and bait this every time

  • MiloMilo Member Posts: 5,828
