Pig is the best mechanically, even when she got nerfed with EGC, limiting her possible playstyles (no more endgame Pig). Make Your Choice is strong as well, and Surveillance is also a decent perk now.
Clown does have some good perks, but he himself is weak.
Plague herself is rather weak as she is now, at least in high ranks. Her perks Corrupt Intervention and Infectious Fright are decent.
I'd recommend Pig. Perks you can get from the Shrine, but Pig is the strongest killer of the three. She can mindgame loops with her ambush, and stall the game with her Reverse Bear Traps.
But i’m extremely biased.
Great abilities. Great perks. Great pressure.
Pig is the weakest of the three. Her ability does not counter palletloop in most cases. Her strength was at the end of the game, but after the EGC nerf, she became weak. Also, when playing against a SWF, her stealth is of little use.
A clown is good, but starting with green addons.
Plague is strong, “M1 killer” versus no mitter - not weak. If you know how to chase, the possibility of falling from one hit is dangerous for the survivors. This is an easy way to play slugging.
>Clown does have some good perks, but he himself is weak
I don't think so :P
Amanda is good at countering loops by ambush charging while at the pallet. It's really easy.
Clown is good at ending chases, but not at pressuring gens or finding people. His kit also handicaps him at a certain area, just like Legion's
Plague's weakness are good chasers. She excels when survivors are not in a safe area for them. You can break them, but if they chase well, then it doesn't matter.
What rank is that? You realize reset just happened right?
Only some unsafe pallets, smart survivor will be able to avoid this.
>but not at pressuring gens or finding people
Like most m1 killers. In this case, it remains a job for the player himself.
>She excels when survivors are not in a safe area for them
A good killer will try to chase survivors in an unsafe zone.
>What rank is that? You realize reset just happened right?
Of course I remember resetting ranks. This is an old screen. In addition, a SWF group with an artificially thrown off rank can also fall in the middle ranks. And you don’t want to say that Pig plays well at the red ranks?
I can find screenshots with old Freddy 4king at red ranks, so old Freddy was top tier btw 😁.
In a sense you are right almo but wrong about the rating. i mean he is my third favorite killer and in red ranks he is UNDERWHELMING.
clown and underrated? the last statistics you guys showed us said something different. he had the worst kill rates of all killers on all platforms.
I did not urge to rely on the screen as evidence. Just a demonstrative example. Power Clown - help in chase. Power Pig - in most cases no.
Piggy is such a cool killer. She has a little tool to make some jukes or mindgames (the dash) she has a built in stealth ability so you can sneak up or grab survivors from gens. And you have an ability to seal a survivor for a rng amount of time. And personally I love it putting 5 traps on their heads it feels so good and the way you can sneak up on survivors with whispers and monitor. For the little extra evil im running ruin and pgtw to buy even more time during the trap saison.
(yea i switched enduring during my playtime)
Idk I Piggy is really fun. Not the strongest but least solid. And it's pretty cool when someone boops the snoop
I like the character but she is good for one thing, stall the games i mean she have a tool to stop gen rush but she has weak chase like most killers. Red ranks she doesn't perform that well but she's way better than clown and legion for sure.
But Pig is better because she has chase power + stealth + stall, why Clown has only a chase power, a very weak one without green+ add-ons and very easy to counter, even more easy than Pig's power.
Stealth vs SWF - is nothing. Chase power don't help stop looping, if there is enough space around the pallet. And even if it’s not enough, the survivor can simply throw it off.
>and very easy to counter
Easy counter? I main Clown a long time. One throw of a bottle, and the survivor needs to drop a pallet or get hit. If you throw the bottle behind survivor running around the pallet, he may not even have time to run around it in a circle. The shack easily closes with bottles. Perhaps you just did not meet players on the Clown who able to play him.
Exactly, just drop the pallet and Clown can't do nothing, he needs to break it and survivors can go to another pallet. Untill Clown breaks all pallets, all gens should be done. His bottles even don't counter all loops and Clown slows down after throwing a bottle and that makes his power worthless in trying to catch up to people.
Yes, I met some Clown mains and all told me that Clown is atrocious without Flask of Bleach, a 2000 hours Clown main even said that he is the worst killer in the game.
Only now is not 2016 and there are not so many pallets on the map, and there are even fewer safe ones. His strength makes them throw pallets at once, spending a minimum of time on the palletloop, and sometimes even give hit survivor in pallets. And if one area of the map is cleared of pallets and there is a triangle of generators in it, everything becomes much more pleasant.
The opinion of one person is not indicative.
You are right, he does have low kill rates. But in my opinion it's similar to old Freddy. I think if we understood better how to play him, that would rise.
This is of course just my personal opinion, and not necessarily that of the rest of the design time. :)
I never said pig can do well at red ranks. She struggles there, but she's stronger than the other two.
Why do people find Clown bad? His only weakness is map pressure, he cuts down chases really well.
What about bamboozle
Bamboozle is pretty situational. It can help you against certain windows, but most of the time, you don't need it.
He even doesn't do that LOL. Good survivors will still stall Clown for a long time.
@Almo false. Her head traps (RBT's) are designed to kill. Reference to her Killer Bio.
"Ultimately, she saw now that she had been right in the choices she had made. The time for games was over. There was no chance of redemption for any of them. They were meat, and meat was destined to die."
She doesn't care if they did nothing wrong. She wants them all dead. So to her RBT's are meant to kill. Not to "Torture" Not to "Make the Games Longer". Kill.
I'm a Horror Fanatic so I read deeply in All Horror Figures lore (Myers, Amanda, Freddy, Ghosty, & Leather.)
So the rest of the Devs may think they aren't designed to kill. But the Lore says otherwise...
So.. You are saying the game mechanics contradicts her lore..?
(Sorry if this seems rude. But I had to state what her lore states.)
As with any other killer, except Nurse.
When I play Clown with good addons, I rarely see a survivor who can run from me for a long time.
Pig is the most fun to play as imo.
