Poll: Is Legion's Deep Wound Status a Threat?
Is Legion's Deep Wound status a threat?
Poll at bottom.
Arguments for NO:
-With the rework, the Deep Wound (DW) timer is paused while in the terror radius of the killer and while mending. This means there is no urgency to mend. You can just wait until you are safe to do it.
-The mending makes noise, but there is no reason to mend rather than just hide if you are inside the terror radius, making the noise useless to killer tracking.
-Getting hit with DW while injured has no negative effect aside from putting the status on the survivor.
-DW has no negative effects other than the death timer and the screen effect.
-DW does not help the killer track the survivor any more than just injuring them. In fact, inflicting DW requires going into Frenzy, which makes scratch marks and blood disappear even for a few seconds after you exit Frenzy, making it easier for survivors to escape than just hitting them with a normal attack.
Arguments for YES:
-It can instantly down a survivor if they do not mend.
-It prevents survivors from just instantly getting back on a generator as soon as the killer leaves.
-It makes survivors waste time, therefore buying the killer some extra time.
-It makes the heartbeats of other survivors visible while in Frenzy, making it easy to find survivors who group together.
-The screen effects can make it hard for inexperienced survivors to stay calm.
