New graphics = Freddy nerf

Wolf74Wolf74 Member Posts: 2,959

The new visuals of the game make it VERY hard to actually see if a survivor is in dreamstate or not.
That is just another nerf to the worst killer in the game.

    I knew you used Freddy! 😋

    And I thought he was second worst now? Or is that still up for debate?

    Yeah, I took this patch very personally

    The devs are not worried about Freddy since he has whole reworked.

    The highlight is not good to see and the whole dreamworld is … gritty(?)
    In german I would say "krisselig"... like in an old movie (or the thing you can change in the Left 4 Dead settings^^).

    Might be a problem with certain video cards or display settings. I have a GTX 1060 and a monitor with slightly tweaked gamma/color settings and I see in the dream world a lot better now than before the update.

    This reminds me of what they did to spirits phase walk, it looks awful. Her vision in phase is so bad now as well.

    That's a really bad point, because you can't keep certain killer at a disadvantage just by saying "he gets reworked anyway".
    We know that those reworks take ages before they happen.

    I play the spirit and notice essentially no difference except the graphics are nicer. Might be your graphics settings? Granted I play on PS4, so I don’t know how the computer was effected by the update.

    Same with Freddy.

    Freddy is unchanged. The survivors still cant bully him in the dreamworld which makes him the best deranking killer :wink:

    It's night and day difference. Her spirit phase is like you're getting blinded in the face with a flashlight.

    I’m sorry you’re dealing with that on the computer :(

    This + the locker buff = why do the devs hate Freddy so much?

  • KaelumKaelum Member Posts: 943

    I had a Freddy daily yesterday, and the new graphics made it so much easier. I’m playing on a PS4 Pro, and it is much easier to find survivors now. Are you playing on a standard PS4?

    What was the locker buff? All I heard about was the new killer perk that causes exposed when you leave a locker

    Lockers now block aura reading. According to this other thread, that includes Freddy's dream world aura reading.

    Freddy isn't the worst killer in the game.

    That title now belongs to Legion.

    No, what he means is that they're not gonna do anything to Nightmare because he has a rework scheduled.
    Why buff/nerf directly when he'll be changed 1 year later, right? /sarcasm

    They did not "touch him" directly… but they changes the graphics and nerfed him accidently.

    I'm about to play a Freddy game, first one since the update, but I have played against 2 since the update. I immediately noticed that DW looks WAY different than it did before. It honestly seemed like it was easier to see, but that was survivor POV. I'll come back and comment further after I play a game.

  • thesuicidefoxthesuicidefox Member Posts: 6,539

    Okay just finish my game. 4k BTW, but a David quit when I caught him the second time so IDK how the game would have been otherwise. Anyway, it was on Preschool. I honestly felt like it was easier to see survivors. Sorry. I had a P3 Claud too and I could see her in the distance (though I admit I saw her aura first with BBQ but could still see her rather well once the aura faded). Maybe it's just the map, but DW seems a lot better. The colors are more washed out so maybe that's where you are having trouble. That definitely threw me off a little bit. But in terms of raw visibility it seems better. I'll try a few more after I finish some other dailies to see what other maps look like.

    Thanks for your opinion.
    I was actually not referring to seeing people in the distance, it is just really hard to tell if they are already asleep.
    But what you describe as "washed out" seems to be what I called "gritty".
    Are you playing on PC?

  • thesuicidefoxthesuicidefox Member Posts: 6,539

    Xbox One X. Washed out. Gritty. Same thing. I didn't have a lot of trouble telling they were asleep or not but then again I wasn't really paying attention to that. I was more focused on how well I could see them when they were awake and it seems better than before. But again it could just be the map.
