Wow so hunters got what?  A surrender button and some fog for Jack, that's it seriously?  After playing 10 or so games after the update, have fun with the complaints from people with long wait times in rank battles because everyone has stopped playing hunters.  

If you are going to spread out ciphers, have the hunter be a little faster.  Playing as a survivor, I actually liked having them closer together.

Instead of having a huge red blob show up covering the survivor which allows the hunter to see nothing, how about just silhouette the survivor for 5 seconds.

Glad you sort of fixed chat, are you ever going to let soul weavers chat before a match (dont know if that is for all hunters)?  

Co-op ciphering has been reduced?!?? By what, .000001%?  

Change the button location for abilities for ALL hunters, or make the UI adjustable.  

Survivors get a special way out if 3 are captured.  Makes sense, especially if there are 4 ciphers left to do.  How about silhouette the last survivor if 3 have escaped?  You can hopefully see the changes you have made or haven't made, are not evenly done.  I wouldn't be surprised if you get several more complaints after this update.
