I have never felt this scammed.
This is probably the only game in which I bought all DLC without hesitation but HolyS. I have never felt this scammed and it is already been a recurrent feeling with this game for a while.
First time i felt scammed it was with the pay to win "mettle of man" issue which forced everyone who played survivor regularly to buy Ash or be killed in most of redrank games because MoM players got to live with that extra life while you got hooked for not having MoM. All that to see it nerfed to the ground to the point that LITERALLY nobody uses it because it is dog poo.
Now with this chapter, which I instantly purchased, I leveled the surv to lvl 50 but i though i would give the oni a go and [BAD WORD] loved it. Games were fast paced, survivors who got cocky got instantly punished and hooked and the most important aspect of it, i could contest almost every redrank game and always had the feeling that i could turn around the surv pressure even when there was a team of 2-3 surv with voicecom.
After millions of bloodpoints, I got him to prestige 3 to find out that it was nerfed within 10 days of its release after weeks of TESTING in ptb.
Now i find myself smashing walls nonstop instead of survs who were just in front of me but they made a 90º turn as soon as i got in range. Also smashing stupid corners because you can't turn and it will just hit the environment.
Now I find myself getting looped as a trash mouse1 killer because my power is only good for slug and if i ever find a surv out in the open and he fails to dodge ( which is really easy because as it has been said in other threads there is not really a turn of more 20º) i get punished if i want to hook him
You just transformed a fun and capable killer with his ups and downs into a worse version of Billy, in which we have our mobility with limited duration and a really high cooldown just to turn back to the m1 bad killer mechanic and getting pallet toured because the only good thing this killer had ( to force a surv out of a loop by using your power ) is gone with the wind because reasons.
What i am trying to say is that this game is putting in my mind that "scammed" feeling too many times. It is continuously making me feel scammed with so many worthless perks (Hello to Jeff, Quentin, Steve, Tapp, Ash, Yui,,,) and it really makes me feel like i wasted SO MANY time grinding for those perks after paying for the chapters to find that the perks are not only useless, but cannot be fitted in any "perk combo" because they are so situational that you can end a game and escape without even using them at all.
I even thought about uninstalling the game because all that grind to have it morph into an underpowered version of billy feels like a waste of time which i don't know if i ever want to repeat or waste my money to do it knowing that sooner than later its fun will be removed.
You do what you gotta do, because i know players like me with thousands of hours are just a speck of dust in the player base but man, i am really sure that it is not only me who feels this way.
