Killers start to voice their disagreement of the nerf

i just entered into 2 games and once after the lobby screen to kick start of the game, the killer DC.

is it the voice of disagreement of the nerf?

    Could be? I wouldn't recommend doing it too much as it is a bannable offense. But its pretty much the only thing some players can do to express themselves, that the devs react to.

    The devs still don't seem to care that the only Nurses we see are some poor person trying to grind out a daily. The player base for her has almost disappeared.

    I disagree about the Nurse.

    She is hard as hell, but her power is the strongest in the game and she is still 2nd strongest killer. Basically she is one of the only 2 killers that can skip loops, the other being Hag with Mint Rag.

    Except Nurse doesnt need Ultra Rare addon

    Probably. Survivors kept on DCing vs Spirit and Nurse... so yes?

    When this patch come out I hope Killers would either switch to Survivor so there's no more killers or non stop usage of Ebonies.

    Personally i wouldnt disconnect because survs have no fault in that, would be a much more effective protest to see killers running tue game but refusing to play, imo.

    Crossing arms, in poor words.

    Haveblnt played killer in some days due to challenges, but I might actually do that in the next hours.

    You are disagreeing with me that the frequency with how many Nurses still play is way down? Honestly try to think back to how many nurses you vs before the change and how many you see now.

    Her power is powerful, but the change to the base kit, made her more frustrating to play, to the fun factor is way down, and people have made it clear by playing some other killer.

    The Nurse Killer player spends a crap ton of time WAITING, waiting after she blinks for exhaustion to clear, waiting for her blinks to regen. The Nurse spends a lot of the match time, actually stupified or gimped.

    And there has been little Dev acknowledgement that they reduced the fun factor of the killer to a point of extinction.

    Not many people play her, but because she is hard, not because she is bad. Fatigue is needed to balance loop breaking power. Hag's teleportation requires surviviors to be dumb or 15 second cooldown. Thats way more than Nurses fatigue. And dont forget chain blinks.

    I didn't say the Nurse was bad, I said the FUN factor to playing her was tanked. And people want to have fun playing a game, not spend 10-20 minutes getting frustrated. So the dves took a Killer many people played and had fun playing and made her almost disappear from the trials.

    Man, I had a survivor DC after stepping in a trap while I was on the other side of the map. It was an immediate DC, they didn’t bother trying to escape the trap or wait for help, it was just the sound of a snap and bam! DC.

    The sad thing is, I was willing to farm with them for the double blood points.

    Maybe yes and its no suprising. Devs are not listening and want us to try and accept nerfs. I plan to run around gens letting survivors win game without effort coz this is exact future of the game with current way of nerfs headed towards killers - easy games for survivors with lot of "fun" and without "frustrating" killers a their perk. These DCs you are experiencing may be form of protest and I fully support it. Hope that more killers join this.

    I dont play much nurse cause I suck at her, but I think it was the most fun I have had as killer.

    Outplaying surviviors with precise blinks is very satisfying, and they can even counter that because its too fast to react. But of course its not much of a threat if they see it coming.

    same here, if, before watching the PTB, I kept some hooe, now that I saw it I clearly saw how terrible it looks and clearly understood the direction they are taking.

    They want survivors to escape almost always, unless some major mistakes are done by them during the game.

    At this point, after the many nerfs have been made, I think that a massive protest is the only way to make them rethink of what they are doing.

    Yesterday already on 40% of the games killers disconnected in early or middle of the game and I reappy can't blame them.
