How Legion should ACTUALLY be changed.

Legion would, effectively, be the worst Killer in the game. Even worse than Freddy.

Legion's power was designed for one, specific purpose: To quickly spread damage across multiple Survivors in a short period of time.

This however, can be quickly stopped by a Exhaustion perk that allows you to basically outrun the Legion for free. No thought required. Or scattering. Run in a straight line, Legion can't see scratch marks while in Frenzy. It is so easy to counter Legion's power.

Legions are forced to tunnel because there is never another Survivor within range to switch to. I've seen Legions try on PS4. They tend to fail because their power lacks the range and speed necessary. Don't even get me STARTED on The Game. Or any map with second stories.

They need to scrap every single thing in the list and do the following:

Get rid of moonwalking, get rid of the filthy blade exploit, rework or increase the rarity of Frank's Mixtape, and buff Legion. Buff Legion's PURPOSE. They need to be STRONGER, not weaker.

Legion should gain a speed boost and possible total power duration boost every time Legion places a Survivor in Deep Wound. This way Legions can do their job as intended and imagined, Survivors don't have to be tunneled as much, and Survivor complaints will go down as a result.

And yes, I know some of these things are being addressed, like Deep Wound timer no longer going down in TR, but I just want the list removed entirely and redesigned.

Either that, or Legion needs another ability to go with their Killer Power. Like how Pig has a stealth mode with ambushes AND Jigsaw Traps.

"There is no counterplay!"

Fight me. Reply to me, right now. I will overturn anything you try to claim. Bring it. 😊

    I also agree. If this change goes at live...I swear I'll never buy anything from this game for real money.

    Legion should have an area of effect attack called "blade storm". He will keep a whirlwind of slashing blades around him that downs nearby survivors as he runs in frenzy mode

    Oh sorry, my mistake. You are right. Please don't give me demerit points for the next killer meeting

    Only made an account so I could share my opinion on The Legion changes.

    I think they went way too far with these changes. Dropping the power on a miss completely goes against who the killer is. Frenzy: a state or period of uncontrolled excitement or wild behavior. Feral: in a wild state. Resembling a wild animal. If these changes are implemented the power should be called Adrenaline, because it's just a speed buff now (a crappy one too). As for "Moonwalking" and "Tunneling," increasing the number of hits to reduce the timer to zero or fully depleting the power gauge when hitting a target that already has Deep Wounds would be sufficient in my opinion. Pausing the bleed timer while inside the Killer's Terror Radius effectively counters "Moonwalking." Lastly, just remove the stacking capability of the add-ons. Changing the base movement speed was bad in my opinion, it was fine the way it was. Once you hit bloodlust you could catch up. It was a good balance for having the ability to vault at a similar speed to survivors. Increasing the movespeed while in frenzy was needed though, the duration boost changes could have been changed with the add-ons.

    This would have been a much better way to nerf Legion.

    Learn to play Legion. Thats it.

  • bubbascalbubbascal Member Posts: 318

    Oh, I KNOW how to play Legion. I mained old Legion from rank 10 to rank 1 before the emblem change and did not use exploits. I did VERY well.

    I can consistently pip nowadays at rank 10 with new Legion and no add-ons. But that might be because I have Ruin.

    Either way, I 100% know how to play Legion. I know how they work, old and new, and I know they're weak. 😥

    What if they added an addon that when you apply the deep wound status effect your power duration wont go down for a few seconds like 4 seconds or something.
