Is camping still viable with Reassurance? | Dead by Daylight

  • 게시일 2022. 09. 09.
  • In this video I discuss how strong camping used to be and how that has changed with the introduction of the perk Reassurance. My conclusion is that Reassurance has almost entirely killed the effectiveness of full-commitment camping. If Survivors bring at least 2 Reassurances and do their best not to go down too early (or in basement), this strategy should no longer give consistent good results. However, there are other issues left unresolved...

      @Crowd Control I play with entire teams built to survive and the only times we have ever started to antagonize them is after two of us were face camped to stage two before two gens were popped. Most toxic killers 100% deserve to get blinded every 2/3 of a second.

      @Phillip Evans yeah i'd say It's desperation rather than saltyness :')
      The killer's like "oh god please at least one kill" and they try as hard as they can to secure that.
      It doesn't feel good to be the person who's the secure kill, especially if you've done a lot and deserved to escape after so much work, but yeah... It is what it is i guess.
      I think a killer is only clearly salty when they get looped for 4 gens and then camp the survivor that looped them :') It's so stupid, like, bro, It's your fault for chasing the person you can't catch, you are your worst enemy! Just go for someone else!

      @DerkDurski true I think if they added it to where if the killer is in basement for so many seconds you can activate reassurance partway down the stairs (like halfway) for those hooked in there it would be a good addition to the perk.

      @ZSG Brisingr I can agree that's why I think basement should be a bit longer and wider instead of a small box and have hooks on each wall rather than the middle with the exception of basement entry wall , after all a smart survivor would avoid basement area during chase.

    The painful thing about Reassurance in solo q is that I will use it when I deem it too unsafe to unhook and start running the killer away, only for the other 2 survivors to immediately run behind me and fight for the unhook, forcing the killer to turn right back around. The outline basically means nothing to them and I’m not sure if it would be better to indicate it better on the portraits/hook indicator.
    I also kind of wish I got Altruism points for doing it… too often I’ve Reassuranced a survivor so I can open the gates safely only for another to get the unhook. It’s fine but I now get no credit for the save despite making it more possible and it just kind of grinds my gears, you know?!

      @Glaasse They didn't forget, it just didn't really incentivize that because if someone wanted to win against camping they had to hook trade. Either the killer got 2+ kills, or he got a hook for each survivor and double BP.

    Reassurance is a great tool against camping. That being said, I wish BHVR had gone the BT route and made it basekit to a degree. For instance, slowing/pausing the struggle timer if the killer is within x meters of hook for x amount of time and not actively chasing a survivor

    • DODANG_ 914
      DODANG_ 914 12 일 전

      @Predated O The killer objective is to kill survivors. Defending hook is normal killer gameplay. Its like punishing the survivor for holding m1 on generators. The update was suppose to make unhooking easier against instant down killers and highly defensive killers like trickster and huntress. I think update missed it mark. Like otz stated, he won 100% of his games by camping until reassurance came out which properly addresses camping by not making it rewarding which he stated is around 50%. His changes propose removing hook grabbing while I suggest rework borrow time by making hook grabbing nearly impossible and help the survivor unhook their teammate who is being camped by the killer.
      Window blocking not added to punish the survivor. It was added to prevent god windows becoming infinities. Same thing for breakable walls. Co-op was a bad attempt to balance gen speed. the dev were reluctant to increase gen time until the recent update. Co-op action speed is outdated mechanic. Afk crows is to prevent the survivor from passively leaving the game. It is not tracking tool. None of these are punishments. Most of them are trying to solve particular balance issues aside from the crows.

    • Predated O
      Predated O 12 일 전 +1

      @DODANG_ 914 I mean, to be fair, the only killer that needs to be punished for using their power for camping is Bubba and maybe Huntress(altho, rework Oakhaft or Flower Babushka and you fix that issue too).
      As for killers using their power near a survivor, the whole issue with that is that there are many, many, many, many hooks where its simply too powerful to do so. You can literally negate Off The Record by hitting a survivor the moment they are off the hook and chase them as if they dont have any endurance effect at all.
      Otherwise you're punishing survivors for trying to play the game normally, which is not a good solution to the problem. A killer using their power to camp and tunnel isnt really the "normal" flow of the game. Survivors are meant to be unhookable, killers are meant to go after another survivor.
      If a killer can camp a survivor for free by using their power, then survivors should be able to teleport away from the hook after unhook.
      I mean, the other anti-camping method is simply moving survivors away from the camping killer like the cages work for Pyramid Head. But that is still "punishing" the killer for using their power.
      As for punishing survivors for playing the game, these effects were added to the game:
      Window blockers(entity ones)
      Window blockades(any window that has wooden planks or wooden boards used to be a normal window)
      2 or more survivors working on 1 generator slows down generator speeds to a point where 2 survivors can fix it in 48 seconds, and 3 survivors in 43 seconds. You're literally only saving 5 seconds by adding a 3rd survivor.
      Standing still and hiding gives you away with crows.
      So why not remove that. If the killer wants window blockades, they should equip crowd control
      If they want gens to slow down, they should equip slowdown perks or Discordance.
      If they want to find survivors who are standing still and hiding, they should equip Whispers.
      So yeah, punish killers for using their killer ability in a borderline exploity way.

    • DODANG_ 914

      @DanDan TSM are you asking for every survivor to have 2 health-states(off the record for free) and an instant killer grasp escape without equipping the perks?
      This is like asking why survivors are allowed to use god pallets like shack and jungle gyms for free? Are you going to give the killer enduring spirit fury for free?

    Something to note with reassurance though is that even though it claims it can be activated once per hook state, if you don’t unhook the survivor between them reaching 1st and 2nd stage you can still only use it once. It’s not really per hook state, but rather per instance hooked.

      @Paul Anthony If a survivor is hooked for the first time and you use reassurance on them, and then they hit second stage because they are not unhooked in time, you are not able to use it for their second state because it’s per “instance”, not “stage” like some people say.

    it's scummy as hell that their bandaid solution to camping is a perk that requires you to spend real life money to make up for inherently bad game design. I think an aura reveal that bypasses undetectable should be part of their anti-camping measures so that players can make more informed decisions, camping benefits a lot from a fundamental lack of basic information in solo q

    I think a very simple fix to this will be having hooks like pyramid heads cages but with a twist. Say once you go through one hook phase it sends you to a further hook if the killer is camping that way your teammates can save you and the killer still gets to hook fairly

    Id love to see the hook timer pause if the killer is within a certain distance of the hooked survivor, or slow the speed of which they die on hook.
    killers could still return to hook to stop unhooking but it stops killers from waiting at the hook to catch someone unhooking.
    TLDR *base game killer kinship*

  • Xanderino
    Xanderino 24 일 전 +35

    The thing about camping is that it's heavily dependant on survors' willingness to go out of their way and risk it all to unhook someone, or gen rush. In paper, gen rushing will oblitarate the killer, but at the end of the day, people don't wanna just do gens, so I get it why many killers get 4k out of empathy from the other survivors. Also, I do not appreciate having perks be the solution to a general problem such as camping. I would appreciate something base to the game fundamentals themselves, but at the same time, camping sometimes is just the best solution/bet in a really tough game, or just in the case of all 3 other survivors stalking the hook like hyenas to unhook the moment you leave, which I think in thta particular case I would understand if the killer just doesn't leave, he shouldn't get penalized for it. So I mostly want behaviour to address camping, but probably having it be a middle ground to "camping = win 100%" and "camping = absolutely no chance of win" kind of deal.

    • bones547
      bones547 23 일 전

      @Markster This is also the reason that meta builds become meta. When you don't know what the other side is bringing you end up picking a build that gives you the best chance of working across the most situations if you wanna win. Otherwise you could end up bringing a niche perk that gets rendered useless by the other side's perks.

    • Xanderino
      Xanderino 24 일 전

      @Slim Shady My main point is that if you go for the unhook the very moment the killer just hooked the survivor, he does not deserve getting punished for it. That just teaches the survivors to be careless because the worst outcome would be trading because killer just doesn't have his M2 or his lethality option. That said, if the killer start being there for a while for no reason (20 seconds or so), then yeah, when near the hook they should get his M2 or his lethality addon or whatever restricted, but not right away. If someone got hooked, give the killer incentive to leave and also some room to check the nearby space so he can check there is no one before leaving. If you want to rescue someone right away without giving incentive to the killer for leaving, then yeah, in those cases you should have to face the chance of being downed too before even the rescue. But again, if they camp, sure, penalize the killer.

    • Slim Shady
      Slim Shady 24 일 전

      @Xanderino It really isn't in their favour if they tank hits for no reason, unless im misunderstanding the scenario. The most optimal thing for survivors to do is keep 2 separate people on gens, 1 goes for a safe unhook and possibly heal.
      In most cases you can still trade with M1, which is a good thing for killer if they are instantly at the hook, or if in the I suppose worse case scenario that you suggested a SWF come to the hook tanks multiple hits to rescue someone infront of you and they leave with no downs but multiple health states, thats still not bad, you have pressure and the information that they are not on gens.

    • Xanderino
      Xanderino 24 일 전

      @Slim Shady It is in the survivors favour if they tank M1 hits. You should give the killer an incentive to leave. After some time, if he doesn't, I would penalize the M2 if you will. But snatching his power away because Survivors are nearing the hook the instant he hooked a survivors SHOULD by all means punish the survivors, not the reverse. It can happen that they body block for each other and unless you have STBFL, they just leave with 3 injured tops.

    • Slim Shady
      Slim Shady 24 일 전 +1

      If survivors are all hanging around a hook, that means they are not doing gens and giving you free hits & trades. You don't need an M2 Chainsaw to punish them for that.
      I really don't see the argument for allowing chainsaws to be used near hook. Either a) you're facecamping/proxy camping b) The survivors are in fact around the hook, which is not in survivor's favour anyway, and using M1 is still a viable way to punish survivors playing around a hook, M2 isn't necessary.

  • Iliad
    Iliad 18 일 전 +2

    The change I would make is simple and works great. Make it so you can unhook yourself 100% of the time while in first hook state, but it puts you into the final hook state unless you have deliverance. The built in BT can help you get away etc or you can bring off the record etc.

  • Luke Lovell
    Luke Lovell 24 일 전 +27

    A change that I think would help against camping. Would be while a killer is in a certain radius of a hooked survivor, the timer for the hooked stage is granted a extra % of time. For example a killer is next to a hooked player, they have -5% drain rate to the hooked stage until the killer moves out of the radius!

    • Luke Lovell
      Luke Lovell 24 일 전

      @Potate yes basically, but in a small radius and much less significant %.

    • Luke Lovell
      Luke Lovell 24 일 전

      @Smocky Tubers the radius would have to be small to mainly counter face camping, and not a large radius for teammates keep the killer in. This idea I had is mainly from my experience with the game, and suffering being face camped after looping killers a lot.

    • Luke Lovell
      Luke Lovell 24 일 전

      @Bungo Dunko it’s just an idea I had, but the radius around the hooked survivor would have to be quite small and just enough to help counter face camping.

    • Smocky Tubers
      Smocky Tubers 24 일 전

      I feel like just like Otz' proposition for draining Bubba's charges, this would change a hooked survivor from a zone other survivors run away from (so that others can get the save) into a zone they run toward. Why loop near anywhere else if looping near the survivor on hook just gives your team one extra bonus?
      The numbers for radius and reduced drain rate might be tweakable in a way that what I'm afraid of just won't be significant though. If nothing else, it would be worth them testing. Game's been out for 6 years and they just can't come up with a way to stop people from facecamping.

    • Memito
      Memito 24 일 전 +1

      @Bungo Dunko that would be solved easily, if the killer is chase near that radius then the drain rate is gone, that way the killer isn’t very punished if someone is near but very punishing if they are just camping

  • Evil Dragon
    Evil Dragon 24 일 전 +21

    To be 100% and fair bbq still being one of the best perks sort of was that bonus to hooking multiple survivors instead of tunneling/camping! Each new survivor hooked you’d get that 25% increase to BP and was very beneficial as it gave you information plus BP per different survivor hooked. I think removing that bp stack was a bad choice personally. Really the only reward for hooking multiple survivors now is the perk No Way Out and not every killer can utilize it to its max potential.

      Exactly, im willing to bet 50-60% of killers accused of camping are just punishing bad decisions. I got unhooked right in the face of a Wesker just the other day right as he hooked me. He wasnt camping. But why let that shit go for free. Why arent killers allowed to play strategically or try and give themselves an advantage.

    In VHS if you hit different surv you get a special empowered attack that gives you the ability to one shot someone but I think something like this can't work in DBD because there is this killer that has the power to teleport and is usually dress in white so if they want to encourage killers to hook different surv they need to be careful with the buffs that killers would get.

      Chile Anyways 24 일 전

      The issue with Nurse and that enrage mechanic you suggested is that her blink accounts count as a basic attack, so e.g. Instadown hits apply to her blinks. They just need to adjust that so blink attacks are special attacks like Blight's rush attack and she'd be a bit better to go against, but still disgustingly broken - she ruins dbd in so many ways balance wise that interesting mechanics that could be in the game, can't, because she doesn't play dbd, she plays the "nurse gets to win" game and no one else has a say. Of course I'm grossly exaggerating but yeah

      Problem arises if survivors abuse it. Bubba hooks you by killer shack, flashy clicky nea loops bubba by shack knowing he won't have his power in the chase because it's too close to hook
      Bubba would have to leave the shack and let the nea get a free no consequence save in his face.
      The idea could work but it would have to be VERY carefully tuned both in the meters is activates within and the time the bubba has to camp before it punishes him.
      For killer incentives just give them old BBQ base kit. Trust me they will go and leave the hook for some nice BP stacks. I myself as a killer main plenty of times left a survivor I could have easily tunneled out alone because I saw the one guy I didn't hook yet for my 4th BBQ stack.
      Survivors could then get the same treatment with altruism. Taking hits, unhooks, pallet saves, flashlight saves, healing others all give survivor one stack up to 4 to double their BP
      This would encourage more fun gameplay on both sides. Without punishing them
      As for helping killers with big maps we should make it so survivors ALWAYS spawn all 4 together. Like if a survivor used that offering shroud of binding to spawn all together when the game begins.
      This would allow killer time to find his first chase much easier and not worry about survivors each spawning in a corner of the map separated all nearby a gen instantly doing them the second the match starts.
      Make it so it spawns them all together on the furthest possible point from the nearest gen (and killer obviously)
      This wouldn't completely solve the big problem issue but it would absolutely help with the early game on those big maps. The survivors on say, mother's dwelling would actually have to travel that massive distance to do a solo gen giving killer a chance.

    If they add this they need to be careful with the anti-camping area of the hook to be a circle not a sphere so you don't get affected in some specific situations, if you are chasing a survivor downstairs in a area and you go back and forth the hook survivors upstairs shouldn't be able to trigger the anti-camping affected , amazing video as usual.

      @Daniel Erland it guarantees the killer a kill, not a win. Unless its an inexperienced team. It's very easy to loop a killer for the remaining 1-2 gens once a survivor is camped to death given every pallet is still on the map along with possible pallet doors. If the killer has Rancor just have the obsession hide until its safe to leave

      @Gavyn Sorry to say Gavyn,
      I’m not sure if that’s actually true,
      Hear me out I play both sides pretty equally 40/60 A bit more survivor,
      But most of the times and of course this is map dependent, there are certain killers that are actually more often than not are rewarded for not doing anything.
      Even gen progress doesn’t really affect them, if the killer before even entering the game bring perks such as corrupt intervention deadman switch and or deadlock, then they are pretty much assured a kill and probably three or four, because of the imbalance in the game as soon as one survivor is out of the game when there is any time left on gens and A survivor is died then the game heavily swings in the killers favor. Which means the two minutes the killer has to wait for survival to die and the three minutes that a survivor how to finish the generators basically guarantees a killer win.

    Well thought out experiment and data collection. I'd be curious about other camping data you could get. If you played ten matches as a camping killer with:
    1) No add-ons/perks affecting camping (you basically did this here) against survivors with Reassurance
    2) Add-ons/Perks that specifically reduce hook times against survivors with Reassurance
    I think that would round out your experiment here. Still, good stuff, very interesting.

    This may sound silly, but what if instead of removing unhook grabs entirely, they just resulted in the hooked survivor becoming unhooked and the hook itself becoming self-sabotaged as a result of too much weight and force pulling it? Adds a bit more strategy and mind games on both sides.

Plague needs to get her power from somewhere at the map. Myers an Ghostie need to stalk and so on. Leatherface should need to get fuel for his chainsaw that gives him a time of recharging his charges and when the fuel runs out after a little time the chainsaw should turn off until he gets new fuel.

    I love this video and all, but when you compared the win rates of the old patch and current patch (with reassurance) and the win rate was halved, but this could’ve been a change in MMR - despite it not usually working but you get my point. Another factor we weren’t made aware or was if reassurance was even in play any of those matches or not - not because it wasn’t identifiable in-game, but it wasn’t in the video, only Otz knows if it was used at all or not, so I think that maybe this needs revising, simply because it may not be consistent

  • Aussie DesoDawg
    Aussie DesoDawg 24 일 전 +5

    Just completely disable the chainsaw within range, because they could probably start a chainsaw out of range and close into the hook within range. With your example if it's 8 meters, just rev 9 meters away. That solution might help in some hooks, but many deadzone hooks will be a minor inconvenience to camping I feel.
    As for the complaint/argument of survivors playing around hook, it's really not the end of the world to just use M1 and if survivors are messing around the hook they are not doing gens and are throwing in your favour as a killer.

  • MistplayzOP
    MistplayzOP 23 일 전

    I love almost all the suggested changes, I think they are some good ones. However I do respectfully disagree with the healthy grab mechanic. While it sometimes can come down to latency, I find a lot of times its just due to one of the sides making a mistake. Playing the hook grab game I find is fun and is a type of mindgame but sides have to know and learn. I have 4.8k hours and play both sides and only rarely have ever got grabbed due to latency as survivor. As killer, I love the mindgame personally. If they bait me really well I make the mistake and they win, if they don't, I win.
    It encourages 2 man saves more I think which I think is important if the killer is right there. That's just my take on it. I can see why you would like it to be changed but as I said we just disagree on that point! Everything else though Otz, spot on man 🤗

  • Алексей Иванов

    I wanna talk about last part of the video. "Killers have no reason to hook multiple survivors."
    Imagine base kit, applied to each survivor. After being unhooked receive something, that buffs you in chase, like movement speed bonus and/or vault speed, let's say +4% movement speed. This buff lasts for a long period of time - 90 seconds, 120 seconds or even infinite amount of time. After second unhook you get more bonuses, like +6% movement speed instead. That forces killer to chase different survivors.
    In addition to chase buff for survivor, they receive debuff for doing stuff for same period of time. Something like -10% for repairing, healing, cleansing etc, etc. And after second unhook they get something like -15%. That benefits killer for hooking multiple survivors.
    So, we end up with 2 ideas that work well together and gives both team good experience. Killer still can tunnel if they want, but it's less efficient.
    P.S. I think infinite +4/6% movement speed can be too painful for late game chases, so may be combine something like 90 seconds of additional movement speed, and infinite debuff, I don't know.

    • Алексей Иванов
      Алексей Иванов 23 일 전

      Also I thought about even bigger change, that fixes both tunneling and camping problem. Imagine that game isn't end for dead survivors, so you play whole duration instead of leaving immediately after death. I imagine something like turning survivor into a ghost, that can help a bit other survivors by buffing them, debuffing killer or giving info. I think you need to reduce their vision, so they won't become maphack in SWF. They can't see characters and objects, but have ability to turn normal vision for short period of time or something like that.

Even in max MMR half of the time survivors aren't even a SWF. If you're telling me every survivor team you go against is an impossible match for you.

      @asdasd maybe you should get better at reading because I literally never said that. I only said I don’t like camping and listed a clear reason why. If you wanna tunnel, at least they can even play the game. Sure it’s harder depending on what killer you’re playing but camping at 5 gens is by far the lamest way to play the game. Nowhere did I say anything about playing a low tier killer but whatever. As someone who plays both, yes if I don’t have someone dead by 2-3 gens, I might tunnel one out but that’s the only time I do it. I main legion and ghostface and consistently get 3-4ks so don’t even start about low tiers. If you’re that mad about getting 4 outed, get better at the game instead of crying about it.

      @David Perez Vazquez since when was playing a lower tier killer "being outplayed"?
      Let's be honest, most chases are gonna last 30-60 seconds against okayish survivors so unless you tunnel (soft or hardcore), you're gonna have 4 people alive by the endgame.

    • asdasd

      @ReavenM1911A1 the problem is that if you're not playing nurse, blight or spirit and the survivors are at least slightly competent, they're gonna do all the gens in about 4-5 minutes and you're gonna have less than 6 hooks by the endgame (Assuming 1 chase lasts 30-60 seconds).

    This in a sense is giving survivors even more tools.
    They get multiple hits from 2nd chance perks, they'd get safe areas around unhooks. They can still annihilate gens by the time your first chase is done.
    Camping isnt healthy for the game, but its been a tool used by killers who have too few options overall; against the survivors who have so many options.
    Which in turn will push killer mains away from the killers they want to play, and more towards meta killers they feel they have to play. Which pushes survivors towards playing the loadouts they feel they'd have to play.

  • Anastrophe This
    Anastrophe This 23 일 전

    I know it's a larger change and would entail a lot of perk/interaction changes, but honestly I think hooks should all work like Pyramid Head's cages. Once hooked, if the killer camps the hook there could be an animation of the entity dragging them away and they go to another hook far from the killer.
    The downside is you basically can't camp even when it makes sense and you don't get any info from survivors unhooking without perks like floods of rage. The upside is if you hook someone near an exit gate at endgame, they'll get teleported super far away, and the game can start getting balanced around camping not existing.
    Maybe in some setups the exit gates will spawn frustratingly, but what else is new?
    Obviously this change couldn't be made in isolation (and won't be made at all): It's a pretty severe nerf to killer since you no longer have info on survivor whereabouts when someone is unhooked, and you can't 'guard' your hooks... But that's the point: Guarding and camping are just different extremes of the same thing. As long as 'guarding' a hook is a viable strategy, camping will be too (IMO as a professional idiot).
    I can't think of any killer buff that would directly replace the info you normally get from unhooks and the power of hook guarding, but I will suggest something totally off the wall (IE, I don't necessarily think it's a good change, but since I'm spitting cruelty at killers, let's do the same for survivors): What if you DIDN'T see the aura of your hooked teammate outside of a small range? When the killer hooks someone they have less info, but they get more game delay because now one single survivor can't say 'I'm going for the unhook' - everyone has to search. The place they get sent to could be random or pseudo-random (IE, random but never spawns close to a survivor/killer when able).
    Final note: This won't ever be implemented, but in the hypothetical world where it is, can't you just imagine BHVR telling any unhappy killer players "Just bring floods of rage"?

    What if a killer camps a survivor for at least 15 (or 30 seconds), there hook timer will be slowed by 1.5℅. I think this saves at least 15 seconds for the hooked survivors. This could be helpful because the survivor has more time on the generators plus the hooked survivor has more time. Another idea was every killer power wouldn't work if they been around the survivor for 15 or 20 seconds.

    To address the tunneling and or to incentivize the killer hooking different survivors perhaps they could add a base kit mechanic where if the killer manages to hook each survivor 2 times, the endgame timer is halved or somehow plays out differently. Idk maybe that would be too much but it would be nice to see something in the game, other than a perk (RIP BBQ) that encourages killers to hook every survivor and not just want to get a survivor out of the game. I know how detrimental it can be to survivors to get a kill early in the game, but I find I have more fun in games when I chase everyone and get as many hooks as I can.

      @Punky Doo but the point of the perk isnt to have a huge effect on camping that is what you dont understand

      @Avy The complete bs is you assuming my thoughts completely. Over 400 people understood what I meant compared to the 3 people commenting opinions like yours. The concept is simply relying on a perk to achieve X, no matter what that thing is. Its not deeper than that. My 4k hours does not need to be told about the prestige system changes. Reassurance is a cool perk, but for it to have any real affect on camping, it would have to become meta, people would need to rely on it every game. Thats my point. Thats it.

      @Punky Doo this perk isnt necessary also theres a second reason why bp boosts where removed from them, they changed completly how prestiges works and amount of bp spend to get the perks, now everyone would be running wglf and bbq because everything is so cheap, i dont really think so the comparision u made is good, fixing camping is a tbh pretty complicated tbh, this perk is just help for survivors. You thinking that bhvr added it and thought that camping is fixed is complete bs

    I think simply pausing hook progression while the killer is within, say, 12-15 meters of the hook takes care of camping for the most part.

    So basically, as long as you're willing to pay actual money for a licensed character, camping isn't that strong
    That's still unacceptable and needs to be changed

    Could a system be implemented were the Entity becomes angry at the killer for camping and lets the survivor off the hook if the killer stays near the hook for too long?

  • Glaasse
    Glaasse 24 일 전

    Yes it's still viable because no one runs that perk (saw it twice out of my last 50 games, so that's 148 survivors without it). More people used it when it first came out but not anymore.
    Even if you run it, the fact that you need to stop what you're doing to go proc it and that your team doesn't know means it's mostly useless.
    This is a good perk for teams, serves no use if you solo.
    Something that needed to happen was an increase of hook timer proportional to the increase of gen time. If gens can actually pop while the killer is camping then they get punished for camping. Right now you don't have time to do all gens while they camp.

    I'd make the range more like 12 meters of a hooked survivor but I agree that killer insta-down powers/add-ons shouldn't work in that range. It's really sad that hooking 1 survivor and camping is usually easier and better than going for multiple chases.

  • SLAVIK #

    The issue with changes such as this is that it can’t be implemented without being abused for unintended features. For example what if u go near the hook and use reassurance and the killer just continues to chase near the hook but he loses chainsaw charges because the game thinks the killer is camping? This would force an M1 so the survivor can escape chase or get a longer chase for free by abusing mechanics

      @Daniel Cope Wouldn't be a hard loop. But every second counts and Survivors deserve to be punished for poor plays they incur themselves. And there are hooks INSIDE tiles too. Where the looping does happen in close proximity so. No. Not every hook is that hook in the middle of nowhere.

      @CozyEnby 1 patch that is truly killer sided and survivor mains are back to crying, it's so funny to see honestly. Not only that, you're coping by saying "Killer is easy". What, is pressing space every now and then while mirroring 1 person harder than managing 4 people and mechanically mastering a power 😂😂 the dbd community never fails to sound dumb.

    • Daniel Cope
      Daniel Cope 24 일 전 +1

      @Nat-ural Disasterpieces the proposed change was set to 8 meters. You were arguing that survivors would abuse it and loop the killer near the hook. but if you're getting hard looped within 8 meters of the hook thats a skill issue

  • TheArcadio
    TheArcadio 24 일 전

    I would like to see the range on Reassurance extended enough to reach the basement. I think that Myers/Ghostface 99’ing and waiting by the hook can be problematic too but that is only for basement hooks or hooks that in an a wide open area.

    Personally I would just have the hooks teleport similar to cages. Camping should not be the main way killers play the game. Part of the fun of the game is chases and predictions etc. Killers should be rewarded a lot more for having multiple hook stages as opposed to kills. You can have a visual and audio queue letting the killer and survivors know that the hook will teleport. Have an entity displeased warning or something like that. Having a survivor wait a long queue and get tunneled out of a game or camped out of a game. It's not healthy for the game. It makes survivors bring the most OP stuff and killers to do the same. Or worse people stop playing the game all together.

  • Secret Agent 007
    Secret Agent 007 24 일 전

    Yeah I agree so much with the fact that it's so unfair that the killer can just grab us while unhooking when you are healthy although I can't really suggest the alternative here but ⬆️ this is definitely not the way 😞.

    here's my solution that would 100% end camping: make the pyramid head cages mechanic basekit.
    Like, hooking a survivor takes them to a random hook on the map, after that if the killer stays too long in the same area as a hooked survivor, they're yeeted to some other location, so on and so forth. to balance out the killer having way less pressure i'd say: basekit bbq + noise notification after someone gets rescued.

    How about a new perk, or reworking Kinship into: "While you are on a hook, the first survivor that would be put into the dying state by a hit within 6/8/10m of you, is instead put into the Deep Wound status.". This perk doesn't use Endurance, similar to the application of Mettle of Man.
    A perk of this nature would completely counter killers with instant down abilities that are camping. Killers would not be able to predict if a survivor has this perk so by the time they find out, its already too late; killers would have to generally change the way they play to take into account the potential presence of this perk, like how the existence of DS and Off The Record prevents killers from wanting to tunnel regardless if the survivors were running these perks or not.
    This perk would even be useful outside of camping situations making this perk a decent perk to have all around. Say the killer is laying down the pressure, someone is on hook, everyone is injured and can't heal, maybe even a couple others are in the dying state, things seem pretty hopeless for the survivors. A clutch hook rescue with this perk would give survivors a fighting chance in even some of the worst situations.

      While this sounds like a good idea, here's the thing regarding Bubba's chainsaw. You can still get multiple hits on the same Survivor with one charge. It's why some Bubba players occasionally meme with the Speed Limiter and Iridescent Flesh combo. So if people were using this reworked Kinship to try and secure an unhook against Bubba, he can unfortunately still delete the Endurance and secure a down anyways. Otherwise, this makes sense

    Otz, it's certainly all good what you're doing, but the developers will listen to ideas that will protect the survivors. And they will not fix all sorts of toolboxes and first-aid kits with incredible speed

    I'm missing a solution for trickster, which imo is the seconds best face camper after bubba. He can down rescuuer and unhooker extremely fast with an open hook, even faster with main event.
