Better idea for The Ghost's second Ultra Rare: bug turned feature

edited May 10 in Feedback and Suggestions

Since the 2.7.0 fiasco leaked pretty much everything about Ghostface, we also know about his Ultra Rare Add-ons and as seems to be the case with all of them lately: one is OK/good, the other sucks/isn't worth being ultra rare.

"Ghost Caught On Tape" (considerably increases peek stalking rate and considerably decreases non-peek stalking rate) both sounds good from the description and plays good regarding the limited in-game footage I've got to see.

"Maggy" on the other hand (instantly recharges the stealth power, 5 seconds of no TR or Stain) is just meh, quite underwhelming for an ultra rare, that could be a very rare or even rare Add-on frankly.


Here's my suggestion for a much more interesting Ultra Rare than "Maggy":

On the dev build, Ghostface has a bug that allows him to double lunge from a crouch stance. This will likely be fixed by the time 2.8.0 releases, but I find this a very interesting mechanic, that could become a feature in form of an ultra rare. Kind of like an Iridescent Head, but with more conditions attached to it.

Since it can only be done from a crouch stance, the drawback of the Add-on would already be given in the greatly slowed speed he has in that stance and needing to get up to close to a Survivor in order for both lunges to hit and down the Survivor. Since it's a double lunge and not a double-damage, there's the additional risk/drawback of missing one or both of them if the Survivor jukes or you didn't sneak up near enough. Hence, I'd say that this could become an ultra rare without having to add any additional drawbacks to it and to me, it seems much farer of a potential insta-down Add-on than an Iridescent Head is for example and Survivors have more counters to it.

In case anyone isn't sure what I mean, this is a clip with that bug:

    I don't think there is a point of giving feedback for a killer, that is in dev build...

    Actually the stealth is better than you think. It doesn't have a timer until a survivor looks at you. Meaning you can use the ability while out of a survivor's LoS and use crouching to sneak up to them for the Kill and using stalk to make them a 1 shot.

    So the double stab while crouching is a bug? When i saw it i tought it was a feature wich would make sense since you are slow while crouching.

    In any case i like the idea, even tho i think we underestimate how good his stealth can be, wich can only be tested by playing as him for now.

    @LastShoe It is a chance to make sure a product isn't broken before it's given.

    Or as I like to say for a example:

    You'd know a sandwich made out of excrements is going to be and taste bad. So why would you want to wait until you get it to judge it?

  • LastShoeLastShoe Member Posts: 484

    @Shad03 For some reason its called a dev build... developers are using it to find most of the bugs and to test stuff. Many of the stuff that we know will be changed and its probably even work in progress. Feedback will be important when developers will start the beta, where players can play this and then they will be interested in a feedback.

    And about this "example"... its dumb. Why? Because any logical argument can't break this. Maybe except another stupid parallel, which leads to nothing. This even have a name: Ad Hominem... a little better than name calling.

    Doesn't deter me in the slightest from giving my Feedback already. That Ultra Rare is lame, not worth paying 7k Bloodpoints for, hence why I made a suggestion for something far more interesting.

  • LastShoeLastShoe Member Posts: 484

    As i said... developers can already be working on something else with this addon, also we don't know how exactly will stalk mechanic work when he will be out, so maybe it will be an amazing addon, all we can do at this point is to wait for beta and see.

  • DocOctoberDocOctober Member Posts: 2,230

    Or I can make a suggestion of an UR Add-ons they could do. Maybe their supposed other idea is meh too.
