Challenge: Improve 1 perk
DbD is full of perks, some good, some decent, and some... well... bad. If you could improve 1 perk to make it more balanced, more viable, or just better than it's current version... what would it be, and how would you improve it?
As an example, I'll start this with 1 perk that I feel deserves this upgrade from its present iteration:
Spies From the Shadows:
Current: The Crows found in the world can communicate directly with you.
100 % of the time, cawing Crows give you a visual cue when you are within a range of 20/28/36 meters.
Spies from the Shadows has a cool-down of 5 seconds.
The Crows in the Entities realm are your allies.
The Auras of all Crows are revealed to you (in yellow) within 20/28/36 meters, they no longer respond to your presence, and Disturbed Crows are 100% louder in volume within this radius,
Explanation: This gets rid of the godawful loud BANG noise the current version has, the silly 5 second cooldown, and instead lets killers see crows as little signal flares leaping into the sky when disturbed as well as being more audible for the killer so they know which direction to look, Plus the killer doesn't disturb them any more so there's no false signals. It's still completely countered by Calm Spirit and Urban Evasion, and a large number of maps don't have too many crows in key locations (Rotten fields for example doesn't have any crows in the corn field despite the lack of a scarecrow) so its not an overpowered tracking tool, just a far more useful one with this change.
Feel free to give your Perk, Current effect, Ideal Improved version, and Explanation below. Remember... We're aiming for balance in the current version of the game above all else with these ideas, so please, refrain from suggestions like bringing old Borrowed Time, Mettle of Man, Unrelenting, or Decisive Strike back into the fold. Keep this in mind when you submit an idea, and have fun coming up with creative ways to either update or rework a perk you feel deserves a change for the better. I look forward to your creative input!
