Legion vs Plague

MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,205

So, before the PTB I tended towards buying plague because I really liked her design, but now seeing her on the PTB.... well im tempted to go for legion.

Do you have any advice for me? Help me decide

    I'd wait til after the PTB. It's day one dude they're gonna tweak before she goes live just be patient.

    I would wait if I were you. Killers tend to get changed after their PTB ends so she this might not be her final form.

    They’ll probably tweak her a bit, if needed, but, between you and me, and let’s keep the survivors out of this, why don’t you hover that mouse of your’s over Legion’s beautiful mask and just give it a little click...;)

    Well she isn't as broken by design the same way legion is, mostly the curing needs some tuning.

    I'd say Plague, Legion can hardly be buffed without them going back and forth from the OP territory so the Legion will less likely get some buffs.

    Also she has some nice perks.

    I have seen the Plague just rail gun healthy survivors into the dying state with her charged power.

    Legion NEEDS his add-ons, the Plague doesn't.

    Her perks are vastly superior to legions. So i would 100% wait and get her instead. Shutting down 33-40% of the map for 2 whole minutes is huge. I can't wait to run this perk on trapper/hag so i actually have time to set up my traps.

  • MasterMaster Member Posts: 10,205

    Mhm, true her perks are not that bad.

    Has anyone an idea what the obession terror radius changing perk has effects on tier 3. Tier 1 was 20 secs, what about tier 3?

  • EvelineEveline Member Posts: 2,340

    Discordance is better

  • PeasantPeasant Member Posts: 4,104

    Discordance: Shows where 2 or more survivors are.

    Corrupt Intervention:

    Gen repairs? D E N I E D

    3 gens for first two minutes.

    Discordance works the whole game.

  • ClogWenchClogWench Member Posts: 2,583

    Just by what we've seen so far I'd go Plague. Legion is a hot mess and honestly Plague has more fun perks and a less DC inducing power.

  • ChesterTheMolesterChesterTheMolester Member Posts: 2,771

    Use surveillance. Its permanent, and worjs regardless who or how many work on it.

  • DelfadorDelfador Member Posts: 2,553

    Because of legion's core power, legion will not get much buff tbh.

    They can easily buff the plague though, I think you should just wait at this point.

  • BongbingbingBongbingbing Member Posts: 1,423

    Depends on how you like to play, With plague you have to be able to manage a lot all at once, Legion is kind of the opposite he's pretty easy to play when you get the hang of him.

    I was 100% sure I was going to buy Plague first day she came out but Personally, after playing in the PTB she's kind of underwhelming. If the fountains don't get fixed I'd personally go with Legion, as well she's kind of add on dependent. Without the right add ons you'll have to chase a survivor for a while vomiting on them before they go into the broken state and you can down them, against a good team or a good looping survivor this might cost you the game. The same can be said about add ons for legion but at least they counter looping.

  • Warlock_2020Warlock_2020 Member Posts: 1,868

    I think Plague's power is fascinating and could be fun to both play and play against. It calls for strategy on the side of both killer and survivor. Do you cleanse yourself asap and empower the killer early in the game?

    That said, I think her perk that locks down 3 gens for 2 minutes will result in lots of suicide on hook and DC's, no matter who runs it. That perks is too long with no counter. Stealth is not strong enough to evade with the likes of doc, or some of the faster moving killers. Trying to do gens on half a map is not really going to be an option either. Imagine trying to work half the map with Billy, Nurse, Spirit, or Legion running all over. Or Doc making everyone reveal their location all the time?

    I think the killer is good, the one perk may need to be tweaked.

  • EvelineEveline Member Posts: 2,340

    Do you play killer at all?

  • Detective_JonathanDetective_Jonathan Member Posts: 1,165

    I honestly was kind of disappointing by this PTB, i think from me playing this game for so long has just made me become burnt out of the game in general.

  • IcemanIceman Member Posts: 1,408

    Yes! This is why I have love for you.

    Work that magic!

  • Warlock_2020Warlock_2020 Member Posts: 1,868

    Nope. Legion is boring. Boring to play, boring to play against. He had some fun perks, but his power is just plain stupid.

  • IcemanIceman Member Posts: 1,408

    That’s your opinion. And I respect your opinion. Out of all the killers that have been released I enjoy The Legion the most.

  • AxelsonAxelson Member Posts: 86

    why his power is stupid? it makes you cry when you go against a good legion or when a legion uses franks mixtape? xd

    i sugg. you to wait 'till The Plague will came in the game because she can be changed. they really need to change the fountain mech as it gives the surv an insta heal. it also depends on how you like to play killer. if you are that type of person that loves to kill toxic survivors then legion is you choice, of course, you'll also may need franks mixtape. Legion is one of the only anti-loop killer so this is why i would get him instead of The Plague, but as i said, 'till she come to live servers it' a lot of time left and the devs can change her

  • scorpioscorpio Member Posts: 277

    I would never recommend Legion so if you're other option is Plague, then Plague.

  • HatCreatureHatCreature Member Posts: 3,298

    So Tier 3 it has a cooldown of 30 seconds, that's it. The 20 seconds of no TR is always 20, feels bad.
