    In Game Design it's not uncommon to include something which requires you to think outside of the box and use a different strategy as usual. In my opinion, nurse is like that, because she is very weak against stealth.
    The only thing is, that we have so many tracking perks in this game, that stealth can be contered quite easily. And also juking a nurse is quite difficult because her blinks are hard to read since the SAW update, in my opinion. Not forget that we have also to deal with lags sometimes.

    So my anwer is, yes she belongs into the game, but also should be rethought a little bit. Lately it's not fun to go against her.

    Very arguable.
    A god nurse can destroy any good teams rather quickly, tho, as a matter of fact, which makes her rather questionnable, at least in my opinion.

    I personally dislike playing against Nurse, especially well perked/good nurses with several blinks, mostly because you feel very powerless. It may be me that is really bad at juking Nurse in general (even tho I consider I'm pretty good at mindgames), but I feel like most of the power rests into Nurse's hands, rather than being into mine.
    Some people could consider it "fine" since the killers are the power class of the game, but I think they gave her a little too much power, when mastered, pretty much the same way they gave a little too much power to survivors for loopable killers. (at least in the live version, can't say for the PTB since I didn't play it nearly enough to make sure).

    And yes, I'm aware that Nurse is hard to play and master, but I consider this to be rather irrelevant. A character being "Hard" to play should still be fair.
    Sure, she will take more time to learn than other killers, but this time shouldn't be rewarding in term of being able to totally demolish people, this timle should be rewarding in term of fun and possibilities that are opened to you, to outplay your foes.

    A nurse, cornering a survivor around a vault, while carrying 3 blinks, isn't outplaying, she's demolishing.

    She could arguably be made more balanced with more vision breaking objects, eventually, but the game maps are still pretty open, overall, making her a master choice, atm, and justifying her "god tier" status.

    Does she deserve her place in the game right now ? Possibly, since survivors are kind of a powerhouse too, at high ranks. In a balanced game tho ? Could use some changes (if possible without making her super tedious to play tho.)

    Hard to tell, in any case, it's not coming anytime soon.

    The nurse is the most op killer, but she's also the hardest to play. Those balance out well in my opinion, so yeah she belongs.

    Marth's experiment clearly demonstrated that not even a very good Nurse has a chance against optimal survivors (optimal means they just bang out gens and loop regardless of everything). The only Nurses who pipped against them were running NEOD/an Ebony Mori/both NOED and an Ebony Mori.

    Yes. Every killer should at the very least have a minor change to the way the game is played, Nurse completely changes the way the game is played. Even though she is extremely powerful I believe the game needs her for variety's sake.

    I agree.
    Tho there's very few actual optimized teams around, especially not dodged since they did carry 4 toolboxes and such.

    There's another part of the experiment where they did it perkless with no items with slightly more success for Nurses, still allright overall tho, mostly because they know what they have to do and they do not take unnecessary risks.

    That being said, that game is not truly built to be competitive, so both optimized survivors and Nurse could be questionnable in that regard.

    I love the nurse, and I do feel she belongs in this game.

    I think she should be Disposed Of

    I’m sorry for the pun don’t hurt me!

    The Nurse is overrated. You just need a wall and with a couple of fakes make her go the wrong way, then hide while she's fatigued and tries to understand where did you go. Most of the times I get hit it's because they made a mistake that somehow favoured them.

    As a nurse main I feel compelled to answer.

    1. Most nurse's I encounter are new to the nurse or just not very good yet. Nurse is only "op" if the player controlling her is good. Yes, arguably a skilled nurse can destroy any team in minutes whereas a new nurse is going to struggle a lot more. Why? Because most of the time nurse is all about being able to be better at mindgaming the survivors you face. If you can't predict their next move you're not going to hit anything and you'll waste a lot of time chasing after them because you don't blink accurate enough.
    2. Every time I see a survivor complain about the nurse, they're usually also the people that do the most common mistakes when facing a nurse. I.e, trying to get away from a chasing nurse out in the open, trying to use pallets or windows as if that's going to do you any good against a killer that ignores physical objects. The best way to loose a nurse are places where you can take away her vision. Tall grass, corn, buildings.. all these things help survivors tremendously, especially corn and tall grass. Why? Because once we've blinked, we lose almost all vision due to the blink fatigue, and with the corn and tall grass it should be enough to buy you a lot of time to gain distance / lose her all together.
    3. Finally, there are very few really good nurse's in the game today, at least from my point of view as she is a killer that takes a long amount of time to truly master so the chances of you facing a god tier nurse every time is slim to none.
    4. Finally, does she belong in the game? Definately, she's one of the killers that takes time to master and just because you get destroyed by good nurse's doesn't mean that she needs to be removed from the game. You just need to get better at countering her.

    She requires a large amount of skill to be very good with her in the high ranks.

    She is fine.

    Urban evasion is a super strong counter against a nurse btw.

    I will say though, I am looking forward to the new healing perk + nurses on her. It's going to be awesome.

  • boogiewoogieboogiewoogie Member Posts: 32

    I mostly play killer, but I love going up against a Nurse.
    By far the best killer to face. Sure she is powerful, but she is also weak as hell in many other areas. People who mostly claim she is OP are the guys hook rushing or simply not playing stealth.
    I'd rather play against her 10 times in a row than Doc or Larry Leatherdong. Utterly boring

    I´m going to answer with a survivor styled answer.
    Survivors only want us to run in circles!
