The Nurse is being ignored



  • DevourOfSaltDevourOfSalt Member Posts: 254

    Lmao with the leak info about the legion get another nerf i wouldn't even be surprised if they did that 🤣🤣.

    I dont know what going happened to this game but its not look good.

  • beatddbbeatddb Member Posts: 415

    I meant ignored by the devs, she got nerfed and they never said anything else about her.

  • TheHourManTheHourMan Member Posts: 1,031

    It hasn't even been a month yet. Let them take a few weeks to gather data on how she performs.

  • Auron471Auron471 Member Posts: 1,301

    Dont ask for any more nurse changes. if you do...

    well... you know what is going to happen to a certain killer....

    just take the nerf before she gets nerfed again...

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 2,246

    @Outland But why should they care?

    How did they handle the feedback that was here on the forums? They ignored it.

    I don't feel there was care or whatever when devs tell you that "great mindgame potential" is 115% on a 60s timer, just shows how little they understood the entire interaction of killer and survivor regarding nurse. Neither did they fix the bugs when charging blinks and it sounds like she is having a stroke...

    Sorry I doubt they care, spirit is next (i never really played spirit as to me she is boring and unappealing) and meanwhile SWF is just goofing around with friends. Remind me again why were nurse changes needed? Oh yeah right because of a very small percentage of all people and not the majority of people that just sucked with her. Yet somehow the very same concept is ignored when it comes to other aspects of the game like SWF. Where the excuse is well most just goof around ...


    Yeah but check how long nurse is a killer in this game and how long some people play her compared to legion.

    I do not think that you actualy main'd her, like, you were good with her you should be good still. If you think that dominating the match is fun is completely wrong. What I want to say is: you think that something is bad if it don't is unbalenced

  • OutlandOutland Member Posts: 535

    I agree with you, it does appear BHVR give zero F's to the feedback supplied by their userbase. They seem to only go with what HARD DATA their reports show them. Only this time I do believe that their data will show a major decrease in Nurse matches because all they managed to do with her changes was make a truly unfun and frustrating Killer.

    She won't be over performing now, because she'll barely see any matches.

    Anyways, hey its their game to F up i guess.

  • tbh I think most of the ppl who say that "Nurse is way slower bc you need to use 1-blink only for map pressure" just don't want to adapt and feel they need to always have 2 blinks to pick-off mispositioned survivors.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    I'm a nurse main too. And the nerf was definitly a huge nerf, but she's still the best, i can agree on that.

  • PickCollinsPickCollins Member Posts: 495

    enlighten me on how a killer is still the best when the counterplay to Them is to hold W and shift

  • MarcusMarcus Member Posts: 2,047

    So you need a yellow and green add-on to not get countered by survivors who run in a straight line. Seems right ...

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    You said she's not the best anymore. You don't said she's not the best without addons anymore.

  • ZoldyarZoldyar Member Posts: 438

    Explain how the changes too a massive changing because she still ignore loops and the only disadvantage I can think about is the few seconds cool down when using her power.

    Also, what was fun about the old nurse that isn't for the new one?

  • OutlandOutland Member Posts: 535

    I don't need to explain how the changes were so massive. The proof is this.

    Almost no one wants to play the Nurse now, the sheer drop in trails with a Nurse should show you that they turned that particular Killer into one people only use when they have a daily to do.

    Like I said the Killer is still viable to play, but the fun factor has been removed and no one is willing to waste their available play time on a Killer that fails to deliver any enjoyment.

    So yeah you are right the changes may have been minimal, but the impact they have, tanked this particular Killer.

    Killers do not like spending the majority of the time recovering from blink stuns to have to wait some more to get their required mode of mobility back.

    Basically the amount of time a Nurse spends in a trial just waiting for negative effects to right themselves is just nuts.

  • ZoldyarZoldyar Member Posts: 438

    First off, if you read my first paragraph I was talking about the nurse and everything she has, not a base kit.

    Secondly, why would the nurse chase after the surivior without her blink? Also, you forgot to include that the best kit nurse with one blink is capable of cover 13.34 m/s. So regardless of what you say, she is capable of catching up with a surivior even if the surivior has an head start and knows the exact location of the killer.

    I'm sorry but to use the dedicated servers as an excuse for the nurse isn't valid because it has also affect the suriviors when killers use there lunge attack which looks like it shouldn't have hit.

    Thirdly, so the nurse that is capable of ignoring all defences a surivior has and is always capable of catching up on them is weak? The nurse that even without add on is still capable of winning games consistently?

    Fourthly, like I said, spirit is much more easier to use and requires less skill to an games unlike other killers. What's the point using killers that are harder to use and takes alot of time to learn, when you have a killer that can offer a free win?

    Don't expect you to watch it. Just there to show you how easy it is.

    Dozens of people that talk about her but have never shown evidence of being good at her in the first place? In that case, then anything a surivior ask for, for a nerf or change should be done because they have an higher fandom than killers. However, as you can see from the forum not everything a surivior demands is done.

  • ZoldyarZoldyar Member Posts: 438

    You are saying it as if millions of people were even good while playing with her.

    Once again, she kept her function of using her power just more drawbacks.

    Once again, I said nurse isn't a fun much of an enjoyable killer and is from it if you read through my previous argument. It's clear that you responding means you highlighted one of the arguments I was in, but never bothered reading through it.

    I also mention what you said about the duration not being fun and that is very understandable. However, you must understand that the devs are thinking of methods to make harder to learn, but enjoyable to to play once fully understand. This is to keep the surivior mains to stop making constant reports about a killer.

    If that's you conclusion, then fair enough. I'm just here to be reasonable (somewhat). If you and many people do think it has a big impact and deed her as unfun then I can't what's fun for you and what isn't.

  • PickCollinsPickCollins Member Posts: 495

    First of all the video you linked with Nurse literally states that if a Survivor notices you blinking directly at them, that hit is not possible, meaning you can get ran for the length of the Thompson house without concern from survivors bc you just wont catch them. So that video hurts you more than helps ur BS case that Nurse is still this S+++++++ killer.

    You aren’t at all being reasonable. The point of this rework as the devs said is to make her more fair. But she *ISNT MORE FAIR*. She’s unfair, except now it’s unfair to play as her, not against her.

    Nobody wants to play Nurse, she has disappeared from the red ranks where all the meta slaves live and the silence on her from the devs is very VERY telling. Clearly they are proud of this rework despite it being a lazy mess of nerfs and half baked reworks. From the people who brought us the Freddy rework, this is [BAD WORD] shameful and I’m insulted that they think this is good.

    She isn’t fun, she’s fallen out of red rank viability, and her counterplay is literally run in a straight line like a rank 20. She’s no fun and she’s no good.

    I don't know if the link I sent you is the same as the one it is now. But if it is then the video just proves that the nurse is capable of catching up to any surivior regardless of how far they are. So the point of a surivior simply running in a straight line isn't valid. A surivior can run in a straight line against any killer and still make a far enough distance to make it to another loop.

    She is unfun, but she isn't weak and her counter play isn't running in a straight line.

    The surivior would have already been in a far enough distance to where the nurse would have to used alot of blinks. Just like every other killer trying to catch up to a surivior in a chase. For example, each blink the nurse has can cover 13.33 m/s, but the trapper moves at 4.5m/s. Obviosuly including the fatigue and e.t.c she would still be going around the same speed rate as the trapper when using no add on. So once again, she would still be moving faster than a surivior with her blink.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    Play base nurse against good survivors on rotten fields. Then tell me she's viable without addons still. If you keep thinking that.

  • ZoldyarZoldyar Member Posts: 438

    So if I'm playing against good surivior then why can't i use add ons? So they can bring items and e.t.c while I'm just here running no add on?

    I mean I don't mind doing that, but I don't get the point of you speaking of "good surivior " as if I can't just be a "good killer " and not miss all my shots. This isn't me necessarily saying it is "easy" but if you are good at aiming then I don't see much of a challenge here other then me missing my hits. It doesn't mean I'm saying she is fun, I'm just here to say she isnt weak as everyone make her seem as if.

  • DepressedClownMainDepressedClownMain Member Posts: 924

    Nurse was very easy to play. Took me less than 10 hours with her to get 4ks in red ranks. The new nurse requires actual skill, and while I wont say she is fun because that is totally player dependant, she is strong and balanced, being the best killer in game if the person using her has mastered her ability

  • BunnyTheHuttBunnyTheHutt Member Posts: 1,773

    Nah, they took Legion and curb stomped him with this update.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    Without addons, because you keep claiming she's still viable on the highest level without addons.

    The problem is not her chase potential. She lacks massive map pressure without CD or range addons. And range addons give you a worse chase potential. So you go with CD addons, then she's still viable.

  • PereliePerelie Member Posts: 433

    You'll notice that whenever a survivor main makes a thread to complain, Peanits will be in there swiftly to interact with them and listen. Any thread like this, aimed at discussing problems we have with killers? Completely ignored, they simply don't care.

  • ZoldyarZoldyar Member Posts: 438

    She is viable because she still has the power to end chases faster. The only problem is how patient a killer has to be while using her. For the map pressure, I don't think it's a big deal because even though she can cover less map pressure she did before, she can still get to areas very fast. If you saw the link I sent of a guy testing her teleportation distance. She can still get around the map well and catch up to any surivior.

  • OmansOmans Member Posts: 433

    Nurse has disappeared from red ranks because all the previous nurse players who were used to an overpowered, overtuned killer feel jilted even though she is still the best, possibly second best killer. If this cooldown is all it takes to make the nurse go from super fun to super boring, it sounds to me like you are not being truthful to yourselves. She isn't overtuned anymore. And that's why all those previous nurses aren't using her.

  • ZoldyarZoldyar Member Posts: 438

    Explain how someone can out play the a nurse player who is very experience and skilled? You talk about a surivior can rscspr from her, but never explain how exactly.

    Of course it's easier to face nurse players because how many of them are good compared to those just doing dailies or are bad?

    Huntress would have to go to a locker and grab new hatchet. This gives suriviors time to escape, otherwise Huntress will become an easy loop able killer.

    Hag would have to waste time placing down traps which give suriviors time to escape. A surivior can also use items such as a flash light to disable it.

    Myers would have to fully stalk you and that itself takes a long time which commonly result in 3 gens being done depending on the team.

    Hilbilly's attack can be dodge (like every killer) and result in the killer haven't to waste time recovering for there punishment on missing there chainsaw.

    You can juke a spirit, so does that mean she is weak killer?

    Old base nurse hardly required patient. Her fatigue is normal compared to other killers. Obviously the new one is more longer and unfun (she wasn't really that fun to begin with). But she isn't weak.

    So a killer going into fatigue isn't a good thing? So a killer should have access to spam there attacks?

    She still does exist in red ranks, so what are you talking about? There is now 14 killers and you expect one of the hardest killer to learn to appear frequently?

    I dont think you are that good with nurse or have seen good nurse players if you are saying that.
