Is there a chance killers will spawn closer to their hex totems, as survivors still spawn closer to it than killers which makes it impossible to protect.
The new Hex: Ruin changes will affect killers with low map pressure the most, making big maps even more challenging. In your current roadmap there is only two map reworks in a year. Is there a possibility to get minor changes to problematic maps faster than that so that low map pressure killers would not be so much at disadvantage without Ruin?
For example shrinking the map size and removing some tiles in maps like Ormond, both Red forest maps and Thompson House or reworking the main buildings on maps like Disturbed Ward, Rancid Abattoir and Ironworks of Misery would be relatively small changes while making them more manageable without Ruin.
Will the largest maps in the game (ormond, mother’s dwelling, most cold wind maps) be looked at to bring them more in line with the more balanced smaller maps now that killer pressure is going to be more important considering a lot of killers are incapable of putting enough pressure on those maps?
One thing I have noticed that has evolved is the sound design of maps. Hawkins has ominous background music and the “pulse” from the room into the upside down. This is something that has obviously carried over into Lery’s. Water drops, etc. It makes the maps more fun and gives them a more immersive feel, like you are in a place and not a map wearing a “new skin”. Has that become a stronger focus for you guys?
With the new Hex: Ruin changes sounding like they may have potential in an ideal setting, there is still a concern for it remaining as a hex perk and being broken early into the game. Have you considered perks, similar to Corrupt Intervention, that may block totems from being touched for a set amount of time in the beginning of the trial? Or even have this as a passive for killers?
With unique chase music on the rise, will we ever have the option to choose the classic chase music instead? This Poop wants options!
I understand you had to do something against "pop+ruin" combo, especially for top tier killers like Spirit and Freddy that can easily kill all people with 3 left gene as soon they had 1st quick chase.
I guess you also reworked ruin for several reasons (new players, passive power) and did not touched pop because this perk design is awesome ("you do your job as killer, you get time reward / you fail as killer, this perk does nothing for you").
However, do you plan to add another short objective for survivors before they can start fixing generators (e.g. finding a tool, 20-30 seconds "wasting time" at start) ? Some low tier killers, especially trapper (fun to play btw), do need something like this.
Bye, see you on twitch :)
What are your plans to fix matchmaking? Right now it is a cluster of a mess. I think your nerfs to your top skillful killers and now the most popular killer perk is about to be nerfed has caused a lot of chaos around the red ranks in particular. Also, are you still planning to add crossplay between PC and console gamers?
A lot of players, specifically killer players, are upset with the Ruin rework because of how fast generators can be powered on during the early game (killer has no pressure early game). Therefore, is there any plans on reworking the survivor objective system? 😁🤗
Preferably, the reworked survivor objective should be fun while giving the killer more time to get sacrifices.
Can you make it possible to select 1 survivor and 1 killer challenge at the same time?
Since use rate and matches with less experienced players are being used as the base for changes, will there be more nerfs to the meta?
Would it be possible to change the new Hex:Ruin to only activate a dull totem after 2-3 gens are completed? Or even just one gen? This will help it have a higher possibility to survive until the late game. And if not, would it be too OP?
why did you nerf ruin when it was obvious killers were using it to slow the game down and NOT because of gatekeeper?
Ruin was one of the only perks killers had to slow down the early game. Now that it no longer serves that purpose, will you look into buffing other perks that can serve that purpose or will you be moving away from a slower early game and towards a longer late game?
What is usually your ideal mindset when making reworks to killers and buffing them??
Why was the decision to nerfs Ruin rather than tackle the underlying problem of generator completion speed?
You did very well with Demogorgons and Onis chase music for example but tbh the Doctors one sounds quite bad compared to all the others. Will you change or improve it a bit?
What was the motivation to having a cooldown after hitting survivor with shock therapy? In the PTB it feeled like a poor and annoying feature.
Why was the decision to nerf ruin now? I'm curious on the timing of things and was hoping that you guys could let the community in a little on how you guys prioritize some of these decisions?
I believe that game health and player experience dictates this but I'm curious In terms of short term and long term visions.
Can you guys give a brief explanation on how you guys try to put this puzzle together?
Are there plans to slow down gen speed now that ruin has been changed?
Why would you keep it so that you need to Snap Out before you Mend considering the goal is to make Doc less frustrating to play against and this is one of the most frustrating aspects of the killer?
With the ruin changes some killers with less map pressure will struggle more due to some maps being big and by the time they go across a map to find a survivor gens can be 70%-100% finished. Will you be reworking maps to be a more viable size anytime in the future or are the maps staying as is?
With the idea of the changes to Ruin being "ripping off the bandaid," if certain Killers ARE shown to have been reliant on Ruin for success, how quickly would we see changes on those Killers to help combat their new lack of ability to passively slow the game down?
Love the Lery's visual changes (design team has been knocking out these reworks) but the doctor chase music seems a bit lackluster. Is there any chance you will be changing it? A youtuber by the name of Mr. Envy has made music for several killers including the doc and it's really good. You should check it out and maybe get in touch with him.
How do you guys decide which killer (including their add-ons and perks) is up next for rework? Do you guys base it on community requests/feedback, do you base it on your own opinions about a specific killer, or a mix of both?
Are the upcoming Tomes now going to be related to 4 main characters every time? Or is there more lore related to secondary characters coming soon, too? (PS: Hoping for the return of some objective-based Events in the future!)
Are gen times going to get changed?
Why did you choose to focus the new Tome on David and Spirit mostly? Why not go through the 4 OG survivors and 3 OG killers then the rest? Is there a system behind the final decision? Also, I hope you're working on fixing the 'Dead Hardy' challenge.
Will you guys be changing the ways gens are completed, to make it more interesting an fun for both sides? Since people have a problem with both gen times and the monotony of completing them, there should be something to address both of these.
Why keep ruin a hex totem when it's no longer has powerful effect that warrants it being able to be taken away at any point
