Hag camping rebalance

Options

When a survivor is hooked, traps in 32m radius should be destroyed, just like Skull merchant drones. Hag in SoloQ is an absolute pain.

    Yes, or remove her lunge or reduce her movespeed if she teleports to a phantasm within 32m of a hooked/recently unhooked survivor.

    Dredge cannot teleport to lockers near a hook. Twins cannot release Victor near a hook. Singularity gets a big movespeed penalty if it switches to biopods while standing near a hook. Skull Merchant cannot place drones near hooks and existing drones are destroyed.

    While you're fixing Hag's spooky-camping-at-a-distance, also remove Plague's ability to puke on hooked survivors and infect them.

    Wait. Hag? We still have that killer? I can't even remember last time I saw her somewhere. Is she really that problematic?

    More to the topic - maybe it's indeed time to fix her. Make her 115% and reduce her camp/3gen potential slightly. Maybe even add some small secondary chase thing to help her out in chases a little bit

    Really? Don't u think she should be adjusted a bit? Maybe make her a bit stronger in chase? Somehow she doesn't feel like her 4.4 is deserved on her considering her ability is just to trap

    She's not a chase oriented killer, she's a trap setting killer with reduced movement speed. Her whole deal is that she is supposed to feel somewhat omnipresent through her traps which is honestly fine. She isn't particularly strong, but not super weak and has counterplay that is consistent and accessible to everyone no matter what happens.

    32 meters is excessive, Skull Merchant’s drones are only removed within 16 meters.

    Exactly, They could simply make traps despawn within a certain meters of a hook like 10 meters; and gives Survivors a chance to be rescue despite the fact that Survivor can literally sit on traps and disarm manually.

    But if they do that, at least Buff her movement speed or add a 2nd effect to her power in chase or to traps.

    yes nerf defining aspect of hag.... which is camping hooks and 3 gens. hag is all about camping.... you nerf camping and hag becomes ineffective as a killer. it is like removing skull merchant ability to put drones at gens.

    Hag is fine. She's a area control killer. That's different from others. Different playstyle, different counterplay. That's a good thing, that's variety. Camping hags are to counter as a team.

    If you are hooked in the basement, maybe ask yourself, what led to that unfortunate situation.
