The Shape VS The Cannibal

Hi I'm StiCraft,
It's my first post, so I don't really know how it works here... So, I'm sorry if I'm not at the good place. And I'm sorry too if I'm writing bad things because I'm not English, I'm French.

So, I come here to ask you why you decided that The Shape had to be slowed while he is spying whereas The Cannibal is not slowed while hitting everywhere around him, I think it could be better if he is slowed when the 1st or 2nd hit missed, I mean, if he could lose that speed bonus that have killers. Because Cannibal can one shot all game long whereas Shape have to have his power level 3 to one shot for only 60s.

That's all for the moment I will let you know if I have something else to say.
Thanks for reading my post. See ya in the fog.

    You are comparing apples and oranges here. But basically, any kind of ability that can knock down a survivor in one hit has to have some kind of drawback. The Shape pays for his knockdown ability by having an extended chase by stalking his victim(s). But once he has evil within 2 up to 95-99% he can insta down someone and also has an extended period of time where he is super dangerous.

    Cannibal and Hillbilly on the other hand have an ability that can be used all game long to get the one hit knockdown. But their downside is the attack isn't particularly easy to land. During the charge up phase the survivors can start juking creating distance or throwing off the attack. Hillbilly has extra mobility and map pressure while Cannibal has an easier time landing attacks when in close proximity as well as the ability to hit multiple targets. Both are also punished with their attacks resulting in a stun if they hit objects.

    Bottom line is they are different and have different strengths and weaknesses.

    PS welcome to the forums. The rules around here are pretty simple. Basically don't be a jerk.
