We have been made aware of two new exploits that could potentially be abused to ruin the enjoyment of others. While our team investigates and fixes these issues, we will be banning players who abuse the following (in accordance of our game rules, which can be found here: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/19450/):
- 2+ killers in a match exploit: Abusing bugs to join a public match a second killer
- Legion mend time exploit: Abusing a bug with Filthy Blade and Nasty Blade add-ons to greatly extend mending time

If you witness a player abusing the Legion mend time exploit, please be sure to report them through the in-game report system. There is no need to report the 2+ killers in a match exploit. We have access to data that will allow us to find the players abusing the exploit.

Don't kill Legion with the rework

Don't make him weak than he already is without the exploits and abuse.

If you are going to trash him or turn him into the worst Killer that's fine but offer a refund for those who bought the DLC

We don't want to wait another 2 years just for you to buff one Killer

He's an easy fix, give him 115% movespeed ,get rid of him vaulting through pellets/ windows, no stun on his power and remove the deep wound mechanic

Still looking at Killers whom is at the bottom IE Leatherface, Pig, Trapper.

Trapper for example even though hes buff hes still Trash so same could happen to Freddy and other killers

    Hes already low tier, I wouldnt be suprised if he gets buffed but is just less annoying to play against.

  • NuclearBurritoNuclearBurrito Member Posts: 1,101

    That literally just removes everything unique about him. His mechanics CAN work, they just currently don't. No rework is required. Just a sidegrade to shift his power away from cheese and no skill gameplay.

  • TriksetTrikset Member Posts: 173

    Side grading to remove cheese is a nerf. Cheesy is easy and you cant take the easy out of a class without it being considered a nerf.


    Interesting times ahead.

    @Trikset do you not know what a sidegrade is?

    Eh it's not a common term to use so I guess that's fair if you don't.

    Basically a sidegrade is a set of changes which individually are buffs and nerfs but combined even out to end up with the same overall power. So if you decreased the recharge time but buff frenzy movement speed or something then if you get the numbers right it is a sidegrade. The post PTB Plague changes are a good example, she got a big nerf (lowered MS during purge full charge) but also a lot of buffs at the same time (increased MS during initial charge, corrupt on all cleansed ect) which cancel each other out when combined.

    You nerf the cheesy strats but then buff alternative strategy's at the same time so he's overall as strong as before. Maybe even over buff him since he is weak RN. But either way removing a cheesy strat on it's own is a nerf, but you don't have to just make one change and stop there, that's just silly and I hate when people have that mindset (it is surprisingly common).

    Everyone, say it slowly with me - They are "updating" their power. Does that mean full on rework? Nope. Just some changes. Now what changes we have no idea

  • se05239se05239 Member Posts: 1,642

    As long as they don't remove how Legion can vault windows and pallets just like a survivor could. That's probably the most unique thing with Legion.

  • SomeissuesSomeissues Member Posts: 1,123

    Most survivors dislike going against Legion mainly due to his ability to go through loops, if he is loopable I'm sure the survivor playerbase would be willing to play against him

    Also the moonwalk exploit and deep wound timer

  • YouAreWrongYouAreWrong Member Posts: 2

    The only thing in DBD that will stay the same: killer mains complaining till they get what they want.

    "waaah it's me against four people and I'm so weak, give me perks to locate where everyone is at"

    "waaah survivors are too smart and they keep getting free"

    I never used it but how they changed decisive strike is a clear example of favoritism. The ONE thing they have to get away and it's turned into a complete useless perk to where no one uses it anymore.

  • SpookyKillerSpookyKiller Member Posts: 6

    Honestly just make it where the bleed out timer only goes down if your not in his terror radius that's a solid thing to do don't nerf him to the ground and make him be the new Freddy

  • ItsYourBoyGuzmaItsYourBoyGuzma Member Posts: 395

    It's great that it was changed because now it helps low rank players fight off tunneling killers or just tunneling in general.

    Also the Dev's changing it is not favoritism , players have wanted this change for over 2 and a half years .

    Quit talking out of your a**

    Just wait what they propose this week, and then we can still trashtalk them =)

    The ONE thing?

    You mean other than MoM, Flashlight saves, Hook blocking, Pallet drops, Infinite loops so you don't get caught in the first place.

    Yes it's the killers that are whiny...

    The new DS is better than the old one!

    a 5 second stun for getting tunnelled that the killer can't dribble or [BAD WORD] with your screen to make you miss the skill-check.

    On the Legion change he's D tier trash atm anyway, he's just annoying both to play as and against.

    Any change is welcome.

  • tehshadowman33tehshadowman33 Member Posts: 434

    Plague got a straight up nerf. The buffs didn't balance out.

    If Adrenaline didn't exist, MoM didn't exist, Deliverance didn't exist then maybe it would be a fair trade off, but overall it just weakened her chase game... Which wasn't offset by any enhanced tracking/map pressure ability... Being broken isn't that awful if you can just loop the plague while 3 other survivors do generators.

    Hell, if you're slugged and adrenaline pops, you'll get up even when you're broken! Total fun.

    There's also an invincibility time survivors get after being hit with corrupt purge. You can't hit them with corrupt purge twice in succession unless you wait a bit.

  • NuclearBurritoNuclearBurrito Member Posts: 1,101

    @tehshadowman33 You are missing the point. I'm saying that a sidegrade involves a series of changes instead of a single change. Plague is an example because she was buffed and nerfed at the same time, if it was done perfectly or not is another story but that was never the point of the claim in the first place.

    Also, if being broken doesn't matter then then the nerf shouldn't matter either, since if you break them before hand (which you can absolutely do if they aren't curing themselves) then you can just down them with M1 which you already had to do anyways. If they are caught in the open randomly then you can still do the normal combo anyways, if they are in a loop while broken then it resolves as better than using the combo.

    The only way the nerf would matter is if instadowns are a major threat. And if that is the case then being broken is the same threat since M1 resolves like an instadown while injured.

  • NuclearBurritoNuclearBurrito Member Posts: 1,101

    Actually. Don't respond to that. I'ma make a thread for it

  • DarkWo1f997DarkWo1f997 Member Posts: 1,380

    They said it’s an update, while Freddy is getting a rework, Legion is getting an update. But I fear the worst.
