Well if I can 4k in red ranks and you can't then I don't see how I'm the baby. I can do it without it but she's not my main and I don't play this game 24/7 I have alot of stuff to do outside of this game. The flannel just ensures that I won't screw up. Maybe try it and then maybe you'll actually be decent with her instead of complaining about her. But hey it's just a thought.
Dead Hard basically insta wins chases against the new nurse (distance + extended cooldown for whiffed attack).
I don't use her anymore.
i’ve played nurse since i first got the game and honestly don’t have that many hours with her, i kinda picked up on her power quickly. i’m rank 1 as well and never fail to get 3k or 4k
The more you talk the more it seems you just make up [BAD WORD] to put down legitmate complaints about the new Nurse man.
Yeah talk about a hard counter perk, it basically just resets the chase entirely for her now.
That's when you're meant to add screenshots that you get matched against not browns or actually use a blink build without walking addons.
I'm not trying to put it down or anything like that. You just called me out for being new to her which I already stated. I'm just trying to share my experience and what works with her. Like I said she is alot different from her old version so I'm just wondering if that why you and other people have issues with her now sense you can't play her the same way. I'm sorry if I offended you, I'm just trying to show a different side of the story.
She's fine and fun. I still play her every now and then and do decent with her.
It's pretty much accepted as law of the land Nurse is one of if not the hardest killer to learn. You'll have to excuse me for doubting someone new to her can just instantly 4k at red ranks every game.
And she does play differently from before, mainly because she is so limited compared to her old self. There are things you can no longer do with her. Full Stop. I loved mind-gaming people by blinking in places they never expected and coming from behind a wall to get a cool hit. If you try that now there is a huge chance you're going to basically waste both of those blinks and either reset or lose the chase entirely because of the cooldown.
If it added new ways to play her or offered some new mind-games you could do I wouldn't be nearly as upset at the changes as I am, but here we are with me upset and her left with less tools to do less things than before.
When I say that I'm newer to her I have somewhere around 70 or 80 hours with her. So by no means am I an expert. For the first couple hours I would only have a 1k or 2k game but I found it got alot easier when I didn't mind game at all and just blinked directly to them. Maybe it's just the people I go against, I honestly don't know. The only thing I could see changing is the looking down after blinking. Was that a thing on old nurse too?
Literally the only thing they changed on her basekit was the cooldown stuff. So everything else you experience (including gamebreaking bugs) was there before. So instead of changing fatigue and adding a cooldown they just slapped a cooldown on an already cooldown like mechanic. No thought was put into this change, it was literally just a cop-out to actual real advanced changes, and it shows. If anyone on the team played her they would've instantly raised hell about the 99% charge scenario that happens a lot.
Mind-gaming right now is just straight up impossible with her so I don't fault you for abandoning it. It USED to be a lot of fun to play with them by blinking in strange places but now all it nets you is a wasted chase.
I feel like the devs should definitely take a look at her and tweak something so that she'd be more fun to play as while still keeping her strength at a reasonable level.
Nowadays I only play her with the add-on which makes her movement speed 4.2 m/s and removes one blink. That way I don't have to monitor the power bar.
I can definitely see you you can find that annoying. I guess I just never had it so I don't miss it lol. As for the mind game that's why I stopped playing her. It just isn't that fun sense it's just the same thing over and over and while it takes skill to use her blinks it doesn't leave any opportunities for being creative if that makes sense. That's why I'm a Billy and ghosty main honestly. They have so many more options in a chase to make it fun.
That's one of my biggest issues with her changes, they took ALL of her creative playstyles and just threw them out in leu of one very specfic playstyle.
You're lucky to have picked her up after the changes, I assure you you'd be hating them if you had learned her beforehand lol.
As a Nurse-main myself, you sound very ... unconvincing. Saying you don't even know your blink distances, but yet get many kills with her versus red ranks.
I myself know blink distances very well, but I still miss alot of blinks, because tricky survivors do unexpected turns last moments.
Remember how fun it was to fake blinks or charge a full blink and look down at the last second to get those juicy hits?
Prepridge Farm remembers.
She is one of the least played killers with the lowest kill rate. Yes she needs to be looked at and something changed.
You absolutely have to mind game her blinks. I'm not sure where to even begin with that. The quick aim camera flick as you release the blink charge is a baseline high rank Nurse tech. You'll have a very hard time catching red rank survivors at LOS breaks if your aren't mindgaming your blink destination. They can see where you're aiming and can hear how long you're charging for.
I agree, you do need the mind games in her kit otherwise she gets countered way too hard by LOS breaks.
God damn I miss old Nurse. On the day of her death patch I was still playing her well into the evening until like 2P.M when I was unable to find anymore matches of people who didn't update. That was the last fun day I had with this game :(
I know the distances I'm just not confident in myself if that makes sense. I've ran her without the flannel add on just fine. I just run it because it ensures I don't screw up if that makes sense. Also I'm wondering if the red ranks in my area arnt as bad as everyone else. 99% of the people I play with are casual and I never come up against sweaty swf.
I guess I just didnt consider that a mind game. I considered that just playing her. To me it's not really a mind game.
Well part of playing killer is implementing tricks to fool the survivors into making bad moves, that's mindgames for every killer right there.
That fair I always just thought of it as one of her mechanics instead of a mindgame but I do use that so I guess I do mind game a bit with her sense I use that alot. The other thing that helps is that no one runs dead hard around here sense it's broken right now so that helps me make alot of my swings.
Yeah when DH starts working again you will see x4 every game assuring you waste large amounts of time in chases since it's virtually impossible to fake them out now.
I don't see the fatigue as a bigger "punishment" than the recharge on Legion and the cooldown on Spirit
That was basically her cooldown, it filled that role. Now we have a hat on a hat of cooldowns though :/
Sure it’s different When you add the individual cool downs for each blink and a walking speed slower then survivors movement speed.
Not to mention, that you simply cannot catch a survivor running around a staircase or statues, or through pride rocks Because you could not blink through those, and the survivor moves faster than you
The thing is nobody believes you, stating chases end in 5-10seconds, everybody knows you are making that up.
Big brain plays running around a giant statue to evade Nurse.
ok, look bruh.. i literally have no reason to lie and can post a link to one of my videos that i played as nurse on my youtube channel. the reason you most likely think im making this up is probs cause you trash at the killer and find it unbelievable that someone's actually doing good with them? chill, i have no reason to lie lmfao. you really a joke if you think the killer isn't capable of all this.
