[Rant] New Nurse is SO much fun!

I had a Nurse daily and just tried to get the blink hits so I used the addons that lessened the penalty I was going to suffer from my many missed swings.

Since I'm better with other killers I was at rank 5/4 when I attempted this daily. I'm so glad that I'm forced to play against higher skilled survivors when I play as a killer I'm not as skilled with. It makes the game so much more difficult and almost impossible to learn a new killer with!

As I found the survivors they all ran in straight lines so it took quite awhile to catch up to them. In case you didn't know, this is the best technique to waste the Nurse's time since she can't recover quickly, you don't need to bother with losing line of sight like you used to!

Because they were better at survivor than I was at Nurse they were able to avoid many blinks since they can avoid her telegraphed location.

Everytime I missed they continued to run in a straight line while I had to wait for the charges to come back. Even with the addons they gained quite a bit of distance just by running in a straight line.

While I was trying to get those daily hits the rest of the survivors were plugging away at gens and by the time I got the first survivor down 4 gens had finished!


I managed to get the daily done, but I don't think I'll be playing the Nurse anymore even for dailies.

She was tolerable before without addons, I could get the daily done with a reasonable match and even a 4k here and there.

The Nurse is no longer fun to (attempt to) play and has a mindless counter that wastes an absurd amount of time.

I'm very glad I'm not a Nurse main and I fear for the future changes the devs have in store for all of the killers.

I continue to be baffled by the choices the devs make and baffled even further by the fact that they think they're doing a good job with those choices.

Seriously, someone in the team needs to speak up and get some good decisions going because some of these things are immensely frustrating... and I don't even main this character.

    She became extremely beginner-unfriendly. If you didn't mained her before the nerf, she is now useless in your hands, sadly. Demn devs doin dae baskit nerf no one asked for.

    I don't have fun when play as and playing against her

    What resonated most with me in your post is about having to practice unfamiliar killers at high ranks. It really sucks and should be addressed.

    As for Nurse, her skill floor has been raised quite a bit, but it's well deserved. I used to 4k all the time with old Nurse even though I was not a good player, like I was playing on easy mode. Now I feel like it takes true skill to pull off.

    Good Nurses will still do well. I Watched Marth play a few Nurse games today, and he certainly didn't struggle to 4k. That being said, I probably won't play her anymore myself lol.

    It's more of a matter of principle. There is no other game quite like DBD, and their unique killers. That being said... if you leave, it hurts the chances of this game getting the fixes it needs.

    I played against them and got wrecked by CD addons once. All other addon combination nurses were a four man escape. I played pretty good with matchbox, CD and spasmodic nurse myself. CD is the best addons combination by far i can say.

    I'm going to be honest here, none of this has anything to do with Nurse.

    Back in the day I was in red ranks when I decided it was time to learn Nurse. I didn't have much of a choice with the amount I was playing then so it was play red ranks, or play green ranks with all the red ranks who just rank reset at the same time.

    She was a bitch to play then too, not knowing her.

    Learning ANY new killer in the red ranks is a rough experience, let alone one whose chase mechanics are like learning the game anew from the ground up.

    Nerf or not, you wouldn't be having a fun time in the red ranks trying Nurse for the first time. (And to be honest, stacking on add ons to reduce the downsides never goes as well as just improving what's good already.)

    I love how some people take out of their hats statements like this.. if you think shes the same as before you can't be taken seriously.

    She's unplayable and unfun for the majority, both skilled and new obviously. You just need to search the forum and you will see. Or wait until the devs have her new data if they are willing to share it in a near future.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    And? You don't even have dedicated servers yet on ps4 lul.

    I already explained that in another thread, you can still 4k with her but you have a forced upon playstyle that is not fun for anyone good that you 4k nobody denied that. Will it be more fun? Nope not at all.

  • DWolfAlphaDWolfAlpha Member Posts: 861

    Because of the recharge, when in a Chase, only chain blink if you are close. Otherwise, only blink once. That's the only thing I can think of that would make running in a straight line work against Nurse.

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    Oh that yelling makes me totally see your point, no wait she isn't and you have no point to begin with. People who argue because of a 4k a killer is fine, is laughable at best. These survivors you played, not even all t3 perks, not even all bringing items.

    You will see after spirit's slight tweaks how people will go back to nurse and how everybody will explain how this killer is completely unfun for either side. Give it time.

  • HeroLivesHeroLives Member Posts: 1,710

    Can you imagine if they wouldn’t of touched Base kit with the add on changes...

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    Writing in all caps = shouting.

    Check the thred of @NMCKE i explained it there in depth why she isn't fine and why survivors will hate new nurse even more.

  • justarandyjustarandy Member Posts: 1,711

    Okay after you said "on PS4" I laughed hard, good joke mate you nearly got me :)

  • justarandyjustarandy Member Posts: 1,711

    Since the rework I versed like 5 nurses (2 of them had legacy skins) and I used to verse Nurse every day. Legit nearly noone plays her anymore. And the times I versed nurse we completly made a jokeshow about her. I swear, I was just holding W. I wasn't even looking behind me, it takes them ages to just close distance to be even remotely treating. But by that point I just run into a complex tile (jungle gyms, main building etc) and then I get enough distance to continue the braindead W strat.

  • justarandyjustarandy Member Posts: 1,711

    You sometimes verse potatoes tho, and theses cases you could go perkless without a headset and get your 4k. These would probably be his semi regular 4ks we all get no matter how skilled we are. But when potatoes can outrun you something is definitely wrong.

  • HeroLivesHeroLives Member Posts: 1,710

    I’ve seen your posts and what you have to say. I just don’t care enough to get into a debate about it, because honestly I just don’t want to. IMO since the changes she’s still fine and just as effective. Did her base kit have to be touched? No. Honestly it’s so rare even before to come across a nurse. It’s still rare but not as Rare to see one. If anything I’d say the majority of the people complaining never even bothered to play her much at all , they play a few matches since the re work then run in here screaming.

    here’s the part that nobody is going to like which is why I mostly keep my opinions on survivor and killer to myself. If you have a low skill personal cap as either that’s mostly a personal issue and not a game issue.
