Dark Sense Challenge is Unhealthy For This Game
So I just had a 5 minute match, maybe. TL:DR below
I spawned near Ruin that was right next to a Gen, you know a typical match, and the Gens flew hard, really hard. Everyone was going on those Gens as hard as we possibly could because we had the Dark Sense Challenge, I'm assuming they had it too since everyone was teaming on the Gens. When someone got chased we all just sat on that Gen, hid when the Killer came by, went back on it a second later, I was being chased and I went near a Gen that was almost done so the Killer switched targets and I finished that Gen. Right afterwards I ran to the Gen I was previously working on and raced 2 other Survivors to that Gen that thankfully had a spot for all of us and bam, game over, Adrenawin on everyone but me because I don't have faith I would get that far to use it 😅
We were like flies on a pile of crap in that match and the Killer got 2 hooks.
The problem with the Dark Sense Challenge is that it basically tells Survivors ''Yo, if you don't get that Gen done you won't get your prize, you better do ALL 3 ONE TIME''. Survivors have to race to finish Gens before other Survivors do them first, the challenge forces Survivors to not just do gens but RACE to do Gens, it makes finishing Gens a competition instead of just the goal. This Challenge encourages Survivors to Gen rush by proxy.
To further explain why this challenge is bad lol If we all have to do 3 Gens then we are competing with each other. If one person is getting chased I will finish their Gen for my Challenge and that leaves that person with 1 less Gen to finish. That Survivor is pressured into finishing a Gen before anyone else so they can do their challenge, they are pressured into doing it FAST, fast so no one can steal their victory. If Survivors feel they are racing to do the Gens before everyone else then they are as a matter of fact, rushing the Gens, that is legit Gen rush; Gen rush made by a Challenge.
This Challenge is unhealthy for the game, it doesn't matter if the Killer is skilled it matters that Survivors are encouraged to compete with other Survivors over the main goal of the game, it makes us speed run. We want to problems to fix Gen rush not make it worse yo.
TL:DR---The challenge is influencing Survivors to compete over completing Gens and unintentionally encouraging Gen rushing. Gen rush may exist normally in Red Ranks but the Devs are making the problem worse by challenging us to do it.
