Are YOU enjoying Sadako? (New Killer)

I wanted to see other ppl opnions on this topic because as a killer main who already got P3 and all perks on every killer then followed Mathieu's advice (play something else) i can't really recommend this killer to others...

She is not really fun to play as she has nothing special other than being able to walk through survivors and teleporting feels really clunky because you can't really tell exactly where the TV is nor the side its facing and on top of that u cant even move your camera during the animation...

In the end she is just a M1 killer with no chase potential, no insta down and a long cooldown teleport that can be prevented by survivors, instantly removing any form of potential map pressure she might have.

I must say that im just playing her because she is new and i wanna P3 her and find the best build possible, however she is boring as clown, Freddy and Wraith are more interesting to play (even tho they are extremely bland too), and once i get there, i'll probably stay away from DbD until next chapter.

    She's fun to play, but she needs a few tweaks to her power.

  • DbD_EnjoyerDbD_Enjoyer Member Posts: 458

    You find it fun to just hold "W" and press M1 from time to time? Sure i also like to play Trapper, but u know what else he can do? Prevent loops entirely or end chases before they even begin.

    I ask u to enlighten me and tell me how to have actual "fun" with her please.

    Condemnation 2 stack should can kill survivor.

    The TV's should only be able to be turned off by survivors. I've been playing nothing but survivor for the last 3 days and I've only felt the need to turn off TV's a handful of times. Either she does it herself or there isn't a real need to do it.

    She's got some good jumpscares against solo Q. I would say "fun" with her is gonna be limited to running really strong addons. Sort of like Clown. Basekit is some garbo.

  • DbD_EnjoyerDbD_Enjoyer Member Posts: 458

    Oh sorry if it wasnt clear, the entire post considers her base power, no addons and offerings, only perks (any).

  • AurelleAurelle Member Posts: 2,592

    Teleporting to TVs are fun and manifesting/demanifesting to trick to survivors can also be fun. But it might just because she's a new killer and I have someone else to play besides my mains. Who knows, maybe I'll get bored of her after a while.

  • OpenXOpenX Member Posts: 890

    Well that's silly, since that is never how things will play out in real games. When you are making ~50k a game with BBQ, how unrealistic is it to be running 15-20k of addons every game? Especially since you said you ran out of stuff to buy at this point.

    I share the wealth in my roster. The killers who don't really need addons don't get BP, and I just dump it into the killers that do. And she definitely does.

  • sizzlingmario4sizzlingmario4 Member Posts: 2,938

    She's fun but she still feels underpowered.

  • DbD_EnjoyerDbD_Enjoyer Member Posts: 458

    While playing i noticed BBQ is really good on her, but i don't use addons because whenever i use them i feel like im wasting, either because the game becomes too easy and survivors die too fast, or because they just rage quit / afk.

    Also, relying on consumables is not realistic as u can't count on them for every match.

    I find her very fun. I agree chases can be rough in certain areas but I find her very strong.....before the backlash comes my primary killers I use are Pig, Clown, Ghosty, Mike, and Trapper and I rarely dont get at least a 2k with them but I know there not strong. If you notice none of those killers have mobility so being able to get around pretty frequently is spoiling me.

    I have a couple clips on the Xbox DbD activity feed (uploading another now) showcasing exactly why I find her strong. The condemned could use some tweaks but I personally feel her chase should be harder because of what she brings elsewhere.

    Before tonight I have only got various coldwind and yamaoka maps so was patiently wating for a heavily survivor sided map to see how I did. I finally got Badham last gm...had a terrible start and still 4k at 2 gens remaining. All my games with her I have used her 3 perks along with corrupt (tier 2 versions). I just got max corrupt along with SHPR and this next game I will bring tier 1 of that in replace of merciless storm.

    Any Xbox gamers check out the activity feed hopefully you can find my clips....also OP your right takes a sec to figure out where you facing coming out of tvs but so far has not hurt me too bad.

    She has great mind game potential and map presence and is best used in a hit and run playstyle. Talking about her chase potential tells me that you are playing her wrong. I see a lot of people playing her wrong on youtube too. The only time they demanifest is to teleport. She has good chase potential in places that you can break line of sight on. If you are using manifest/demanifest correctly, people have no idea where you are. You should be demanifested most of the time, other than when you are attacking. If you just try to chase and loop like a regular m1 killer, then that is all you will get out of her.

    No, I am not.

  • OpenXOpenX Member Posts: 890

    Survivor fun is not a priority for me lmao. Literally I care as much about survivor fun as I do the fun of the guy I shoot in call of duty for a killstreak. Rage quits are welcome. SBMM should give me opponents who can handle some add-ons correct?

    And you can run at least brown addons every game, even without BBQ. With BBQ I run purples / greens almost every game. I don't always get to pick which ones but I usually have them. So considering things addonless just isn't a thing for me.

    I played her a bunch the other day and she seems fun. 🙂 In terms of effectiveness I think she's probably a bit better than Wraith but not great. (I'd rate Wraith probably 2 out of 5 stars overall and her maybe 2 1/2 or 3 stars.) Personally I could use some practice on her to get used to her shorter point of view and survivors occasionally running through her while she's Demanifested. Like all stealth killers she's more susceptible to survivors who are paying good attention to their surroundings but also probably does better than average against survivors who are tunnel visioned on other things. And I do prefer how her Manifesting works versus Wraith's Uncloak where she essentially is always moving at survivor speed even while Manifesting.

    She's been pretty easy so far. I did have one that was constantly teleporting to multiple televisions though and that can be fun to deal with. Her 50% speed add-on makes her very very fast.

    She gets boring really fast tbh, not a very creative direction that they went with her. They should have just added more condemned effects, added a true stealth ability in her ghost form (similar to old freddy), and reduced t.v teleport times.

    She's frustrating to play because she's not good and you're just going to end up with 3 or 4 tbagging survivors who feel like gods for beating day release D Tier killers. As for playing against her....well, that's hard because after the first day, no one seems to be playing her now. I ran into a bunch on Tuesday. Wednesday I played a couple of hours and saw one. Aside from that it was just the standard sort of killers I always see, using the same perks I always see. The only new perks being used were survivor ones by Yoichi's who probably doesn't have a bunch of unlockables yet.

    This is a big issue with DLC killers being largely weak on release. It makes the chapter completely worthless and unhype. As a killer, I won't want to play her because they made her bad. As a survivor, I won't get to experience facing her because no one wants to play her and then likely lose. So what happens is that the new content is basically 6 perks (of which like one is probably going to see any play, if even that) and a new survivor skin (Yoichi in this case.) I used to be against new maps because there's enough and the devs seem to have an issue making good ones these days, but at the very least it would make the chapter more noticable. As it is I'd probably forget there even was an update if not for the unique main menu and the starting cinematic. When you make a killer no one wants to play, then the chapter basically has like a lifespan of 3 hours before everyone just gets bored and goes back to playing Nurse/Blight or survivor.

    for a m1 killer she is cool enough but i would like to see her have more mobility like be able to spam tp and maybe induce condemn passively or something instead

  • Nun_So_VileNun_So_Vile Member Posts: 591

    What will matter at the end of the day is how much $$$ she can bring in her current state. I'm playing at red ranks on Console and I saw a lot of them today..probably every other match. For the most part, all matches were 4 escapes. First time facing her yesterday and played a good amount of matches against her between then and now. Overall I agree, she's underwhelming even though she has all these ideas and already existing parts of the game that were incorporated into her design. Has a lot of smooth and cool animations, but still can't help feeling they did her a little dirty for a licensed killer.

  • Senpai_JSenpai_J Member Posts: 62

    I think shes pretty fun, you can always start chases pretty quickly and constantly which is fun but if you get a pallet heavy map its as painful as any other m1 killer.

  • ThatOneDemoPlayerThatOneDemoPlayer Member Posts: 5,069

    I enjoy her way more than I thought I would. She's pretty fun and I don't think she's that bad to begin with. However, I wouldn't be opposed to her getting a few buffs as stated here

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 13,341

    So most maps.

    I tried three games.

    I got The Game, The Game and Badham

  • deKlaw_04deKlaw_04 Member Posts: 3,450

    Nah she’s kind of boring in my opinion. Faced her a bunch of times already and she can’t chase to save her life.

  • danielmaster87danielmaster87 Member Posts: 6,607

    She needs to be reworked from the ground up. Her powers are way too polarizing, especially the mori part. It forces her to either be underpowered or overpowered, with no in-between.

    Shes low tier but 10000% adding her to my main roster/rotation of Oni, Blight and Plague. Shes cool, idk lol I just think shes cool.

  • BartlausBartlaus Member Posts: 707

    I play a lot of killers that are considered being weak, but I also don't care if I win. I mean, the killer shouldn't be total crap. Sadako isn't strong, but there are killers weaker than her imo. If the killers are fun, I don't mind how strong they are. As far as I sweat again for the 4k, I will take a break.

  • PluPlu Member Posts: 1,430

    She's fun, so i am enjoying so far, even with her lack of power.

    Still figuring out a good playstyle and perk Addon loadout for her tho.
