Petition for USE KINDRED

Options

My goodness, a lot os people, A LOT OS PEOPLE say " soloq die" "soloq is ununplayable", etc, etc, but, honestly. I always play solo and i see a few people using kindred. Its the best solo survivor perk, so many informations for every survivors, try run kindred on some matches before start the drama. Kindred should be base kit, and perk, like Borrowed time now, just should give more range for informations.

    I used to agree but honestly I do better now without it. Your team doesn't make good use of the information the majority of the time so instead I run other things that helps my team in a more meaningful way.

    But what about perk verity??

    I thought the point of the meta shake up is to make survivors used different perks not perks that they are required to run?

    I can definitely agree that Kindred benefits soloq a lot, I just personally stopped running it awhile back because I realized I was sort of using it as a crutch. Which, I didn't like when I realized I rely on certain perks to do well (Kindred, SB when I first started playing, etc.)

    I enjoy the skill it takes to use game sense and gut feelings when you need to get the unhook vs when you don't need to get the unhook. There's certain scenarios where it only makes sense for a certain person to get the unhook anyway, no info needed.

    I can say though that it would be a nice QoL change if there was a version of maybe basekit kindred. Something almost like Situational Awareness/Better Together where you get the auras of all survivors for x amount of seconds and maybe after the survivor has been on hook for 30 seconds another reveal of auras. Kindred would still be helpful because it would give killer aura around hook and constant aura reading, but having some basekit aura reading at least lets everyone know who's closest to the hook.

    Kindred should be basekit. But the devs refuse to do anything to make solo queue more playable. Why should solo survivors have only 3 perk slots?

    Kindred is great if you're going for unhooks, Situational Awareness pairs with Prove Thyself, Empathic Connection if you have a healing build. There are options.

    SoloQ should not have to sacrifice a perk slot in order for the game to be playable for them.

    Bond is better. And damn when I see someone using open-handed, I lose myself with the aura reading.

    Agreed. Remove bloodlust and lunge attack and made them perks also

    walking and looking left and right should be a perk as well!

    My ability to understand written sarcasm is a bit rusty, so I'm going to assume you are serious.

    I wouldn't personally go that far, but I respect your opinion.

    I use both Kindred and Bond on my "I want to win" build because that information is so important to me that it's well worth it.

    It sucks to have to burn perk slots for something a 4 man would have baked in but whatchagonnado?

    I ran kindred regularly and, the only information i got from was how bad my teammates were playing the game. The average player is so bad it doesnt matter what support you bring. They cant handle it.
