What Killer disappointed you the most when they became playable?

Basically what was killer that you were excited for when they were revealed but was extremely disappointed with once you started playing with them.

    Never liked the pig never have never will. Pigs are way to notorious for tunneling and face camping same thing with GhostFace.

    Legion was the first killer released after I started playing, and he looked lame from the get go. Plague was the first killer I was excited for and then disappointed by because of the changes made to her just before release. I've never gotten excited for a killer after that; I know better.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 2,373

    Demo and ghostface probably.

    How was she different in the ptb? I don't remember that far back.

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 3,357

    She wasn't slowed down while holding her vomit, meaning you could charge the vomit and take the slow-down while you were unoccupied, then walk around the map and even chase survivors while holding it until the perfect moment. Now, she is slowed both while charging and holding the vomit.

    Plague. They slowed her down while holding her vomit and charging it.

    She does NOT need those nerfs and they need to be reverted.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 2,373

    @TragicSolitude hmm that would've been nice.

  • FrankieFrankie Member Posts: 807

    Old Freddy. Cause survivors are babies and said he was OP, so they nerfed an already underpowered killer.

  • tixerptixerp Member Posts: 241

    Legion, Clown, and Leatherface. I would say Plague, but I wasn't exactly excited when I saw her reveal.

    Legion is a very odd case because I was almost certain they were going to be BHVR's attempt at a killer disguised as survivor chapter idea finally. Not that I'm one of the people who was dying for this idea, but I thought it was interesting, and wanted to see BHVR's take. The teaser shows Frank running and hiding with David, only to suddenly trick him. It was multiple killers at once, that looked like survivors actually. I thought it might've even had something to do with a multiple personality disorder based killer, based on the first image of them. Even the name "Darkness Among Us" sounds so blatant. Something tells me they had an idea for it, but it needed more time, and they couldn't delay it, so we have the half baked killer today. I'd really like to talk to a dev someday to see if any part of my little conspiracy theory is partially true.

    Plague. I think I played 10-15 games when she came out and haven't touched her since

  • Spooky13Spooky13 Member Posts: 1,406

    New Freddy. At the cost of becoming viable Freddy became boring, both in gameplay and addons. He may have been weak but his addons were super fun to mess with, and he was a lot more fun and unique to play IMHO, almost makes me wish he had an addon that let you play as old Freddy.

    Legion just seems like the stereotypical action game protagonist. I feel like I could pull up like 20 games in the last decade that all have that sort of look and it wouldn't be too far off.

    I always imagine the people playing that are the wannabe edgy teen kids who are too cool for school even though no one's in school right now so I guess you're not so cool after all.

  • Terra92Terra92 Member Posts: 577

    I completely agree, Legion would totally work better as that kind of killer. People just think that it needs to be a different killer altogether, but no one really likes going against Legion to begin with. I hope they scrap their current kit and replace it with a disguise kit. It's not hard to copy assets being used in the game, usually that's how a game is loaded in anyways. The Killer could then just pick a disguise and run around like a normal player, and then removing the disguise would reveal that they were Legion the whole time.

    It could work against Kindred, too, be a soft counter to it. Once a Survivor is hooked Legion could have an auto blur, which would blank out all auras for a very short duration and then would return to normal, giving Legion a chance to change back into a disguise. And the aura of a disguised Legion within the hook radius would be yellow like everyone else.

    Demo or slinger

  • AvisDeeneAvisDeene Member Posts: 2,396

    Clown. I just unlocked him for Pop and thought I'd give him a shot since I have seen him destroy my groups in matches, but he really is difficult to do well with. Not many options available for him.

  • whammigobambamwhammigobambam Member Posts: 811

    Demo has been quite a let down. No-one runs him on PS4 and if they do he gets upset and sulks alot.

  • shwagshwag Member Posts: 417

    Freddy, he is so watered down and basically does nothing compared to all the cool tricks he can use in the nightmare movies.

    Yes I know the entity dumbed Down his powers in the game lore and I find that to be a copout response on part by the devs.

    Legion, their teasers and trailer were, in my opinion, misleading. As someone above stated it seemed as if they were going to have dissociative identity disorder or disguise themselves as survivors.

  • TheRockstarKnightTheRockstarKnight Member Posts: 1,922

    According to the dev stream on Legion, they were originally a Stalking Killer.

    But AFAIK their main power was always the ability to vault pallets and move fast.

  • TodgeweihtTodgeweiht Member Posts: 3,558

    Plague, I played 3 or 4 games with her after release and got disgusted at how boring she was to play, she is still the only killer released after legion that I have yet to P3

  • FlatskullFlatskull Member Posts: 332


    No clear identity. Was he meant to trick survivors by pretending to be a survivor or was he meant to be a kilelr than can actually just run and not power jog around. What we got was basically an m1 killer than runs for 20 seconds or so then immediately runs out of breath. I just wanted a killer than just focuses on moving fast...I didn't care what concession he had, even if he had to attack survivors multiple times. I just wanted a fast guy for once.

    That Legion trailer released after their ptb began...

    No reason to be misled gameplay existed before then?...

    Before ptb all we saw was 4 masks in a mirror

  • RivynRivyn Member Posts: 2,369

    Demo. Seemed good in the PTB, then he went live and we saw how mid tier, at best, he is.

  • uBoluChauBoluCha Member Posts: 121

    the plague. i can't use her ability well

  • MewMew Member Posts: 1,324

    ghostface. imo hes just a boring m1 killer that doesnt stand out at all

  • MadArtilleryMadArtillery Member Posts: 826

    Demo, is baby bad killer. Super disappointing for being the big monster. Legion also had a heck of a lieing trailer.

  • xCarriexCarrie Member Posts: 973


    When I saw the trailer I was surprised to see how they were going to pull off a stealthy/blending killer but then they actually came out.

    After I got used to pre-nerf legion I enjoyed them even though they got extremely lazy with legion being “a group.” Then because of the exploiters legion got gutted to what we have now. There’s still so much potential with legion and now because of legacy outfits, maybe Joey and Susie will be proper separate members? I really just want them to be reworked. 😔
