It'S nOt FuN tO pLaY aGaInSt BiLLy!
By that logic, devs should remove SWF because guess what?
It'S nOt FuN tO pLaY aGaInSt SwF!
Only thing thats problematic about Billy is insta saw. Everyting else about him is fine.
why do you want to nerf billy? he's just sitting and doing nothing
We're not looking to make any significant changes to the Hillbilly at the moment. A long cooldown would be excessive since his ability is easy to avoid. We'll be taking a look at both his and Leatherface's add-ons at some point in the future, but that's all that we have planned.
Not just any nerf killer post, specifically, a nerf Billy post again. Most asked after Nurse nerfing posts.
Even though he's like 3rd best killer to Spirit in many peoples eyes. By OPs logic Spirit needs a nerf to.
Many people ask for Spirit nerfs too.
@prayer_survivor The difference is they eventually learn they don't have to gen tap and that it's better to just power through.
Killers complaining about Gen Tapping actually hurts killers, since tapping is actually worse then holding the fix generator button. What this is asking for is a nerf to a perfectly balanced killer, which, bare in mind, I'm not good at using myself. (Don't even mention insta saw, since the devs are looking into changing the add ons)
instead of nerfing him, how about fix the broken chainsaw hitboxes
to all the people saying Billy is Balanced enough
go watch Ryanpez69... he will play roughly around 40 games a stream.. if he loses 2 of them then Im a donkey.
So we're balancing around one single player?
I feel honest depression everytime I see this sort of post nerfing my man.
About that...you just throwing that out there just makes me nervous...I'd rather see less blindness and hemorrhage statuses on my killers..srsly they're just so bad....and it worries me you seem to like those a bit too much (you as in the devs as a whole)
@Boosted_Dwight - If he needs no changes, why are there so many nerf Billy posts?
Just because people complain doesn't mean things are actually as they believe they are.
Billy is possibly the most balanced killer in the game currently in my opinion.
Don't people get sick of playing Hillbilly almost every match? We need some other "balanced killers".
Is this your first time in the Dbd community? People complain about everything. Nerf this, change that.....
Imagine you want to nerf the most balanced killer in the game.. Just shows you have no clue about DbD and probably are a noob survivor.
There are a lot of "please nerf survivors" posts. So we should nerf survivors based on these posts, right ?
And btw, I saw more people complaining about Spirit than Billy lately.
A good Billy gives me the best experience, even when I get rekt badly.
It's a strange Killer, one match you can absolutely destroy him and the next match you're dead before you even realized wtf just happened. Everything can happen from an easy escape to getting totally owned.
It's not like he's Nurse level, at least not in the same way. A godlike Nurse is almost impossible to beat simply because there is not that much counterplay available. A godlike Billy can still be outplayed by playing good and smart yourself. This makes him a pretty balanced Killer in my opinion.
And because rank 18-20 survivors, all killers should be easilie loopable for those survivors?
That would not even like the survivor community, I assume, or did someone really think that a rank 1 survivor likes to get every win just because of a killer nerf before?
That would be no win at all. Just abusing a nerf patch (almost).
The same things keep coming up over and over again, many of the really common complaints have been addressed. Remember all the complaints about MoM, DS, Old Freddy, old Legion, Blendettes, hatch standoffs. Lots of people brought them up over and over again and people defended them. Now they are gone, and the game is better for it.
I don't think the OP is after a massive nerf, but personally I want to see other killers to be as feared as Hillbilly. When certain topics are as complained about so much, they should at least be reviewed.
Thank the entity for listening to us about Blendettes btw! Best nerf in a long time.
Counterargument: leave Billy alone.
Could you pls stop with that "Billy op" nonsense ??? Thank you.
NO! He is one of the most balanced killers, and one of my favorites to play as AND against.
Not the same thing. In those aforementioned topics, the majority of people agreed with them. Most people wanted those changes. Look at the responses in the nerf Billy topics that pop up. Most people are saying hell no to the idea of nerfing him.
@Dwight_Fairfield Yes and I suspect its because Hillbilly is so devestating against newer players.
A common theme I often see is many of those that defend him say, Billy is fine but get rid of instasaw. It will be interesting to see what they do when they review the addons for him and Leatherface.
They could nerf instasaw, or they COULD give him some super powerful ultra-rares!
But devs already said they only gonna change his add-ons and even most of the survivors mains I know don't have a problem to play against Billy.
I agree nerf this meep meep hoodlum! if Legion and Freddy are nerfed, then billy should be too!
I have my doubts, that we can talk here from "most", if we understand under "most", 100% of the playerbase.
I have make some experiences with survivors ingame and also heard some opinions from survivor ingame, that I have not read in this rate, on the forums and I would bet that we find more survivors who have never visit the dbd forums, as survivors in those forums.
Same also goes for killer players, I guess.
The point is... Don't think that the "most" people like to see something nerfed, just because the guys write here a nerf thread about the same topic, over and over again.
The survivors I have meet in the game as example, were not so whiney (mostly) as the ones I have meet here (don't take that please offensive, it is just meant to be a neutral information).
