Nerf Billy ?

There have being "rumours" floating about so lets nip this in the bud.

As I sit here playing my favourite game, dodging lobbies and hospital map as killer, to those who may entertain notions about a nerf on billy I say to you, do you want a whole bunch of killers to go on strike ? do you want 30 min - 1hr survivor game wait times ? do you want to make a bad situation even worse ?

The bloodshed that will be spilt if billy gets the nerf will be comparable to the great emu wars fought in Australia.

    Billy will definitely be a target soon because he still has not the same amount of rare/uncommon ... addons, and since "consistency" is a point now on dev side the addons will be changed. Which will also change Bubbas addons because he is using some of the same addons. Hopefully they don't touch Billy's basekit like they ruined Nurse's, but since cooldown is quite popular in every killer power (like they added cooldown on Blinks and Static Blast), I'm strongly afraid that they add cooldown after chainsaw usage as well. Or maybe you need to refill gas in your chainsaw or some badword

    Although I don't like to play Billy as I cannot manage to control the first-second-super-turn-speed no matter how often I play him, which you need to master to be a good Billy.

    And I'm strongly afraid that they will nerf insta chainsaws and stering addons, as these are the only addons really worth using.

    Also smells like consistency. They nerfed the Spirit's post phasing addons so that you need the purple and the green addon combined, to have the same effect like old purple addon had itself. They nerfed the Spirit's activation charge speed addons so that you need the green and the yellow combined to have the same effect like old green addon had itself. They nerfed Freddy's slowdown addons so that you need the purple and the green addon combined, to have the same effect like old purple addon had itself.

    I guess the insta chainsaw will experience the same, although I don't think it is necessary. I don't even see people complain about it. Let's see what happens

    Couldn't care less tbh. I prefer Oni anyway.

    Maybe look at it the other way: If they were adjusting gen-speeds so killers that are considered bad have it easier, the killers that are now considered strong would get even stronger. So they have to be balanced "down" to other killers strength before any way of fixing gen-speeds. Otherwise those overused strong killers will be even more overused and fixing them then would even be harder since everyone would complain then more than now.

    Ofc ideally you would balance everything in one go, but that is not feasable at all.

    All I see this "rumors" coming from are kilelr mains. Never saw any survivor talking about Billy nerf rumors. Seems suspicious.

    Billy shouldn't even get touched after the devs nerfed Ruin.

  • supersonic853supersonic853 Member Posts: 4,075

    Yeah did you not read the whole thing for ruin? "Its unfun for survivors".

    Solid Survivors make lots of Hillbillies to m1 them at loops.

    I don't think he needs nerfs, only look on add-ons (carburator tuning guide should be very rare).

    Billy is almost unviable in Red Ranks. he's reduced to an M1 killer most of the time as his attack is very easy to dodge, especially for a rank 1 sweaty survivor.

    If they dare touch billy I will make it my life goal to make every game absolutely miserable for every single survivor

  • Aura_babyyAura_babyy Member Posts: 583

    Billy being nerfed is fake news.

    Add-ons maybe, but he is the most balanced killer in the game rn

  • FreudentraumaFreudentrauma Member Posts: 1,044

    It's more a speculation. People are afraid that the killer gets nerfed when the time comes to rework his AddOns.If I think about it, it's actually fearmongering...

  • RobMeister88RobMeister88 Member Posts: 351

    If they nerf Billy, then it's tombstone piece Myers and/or infinite tier 3 w/ebony mori from here on out. I don't expect the Devs to listen to reason, just complaints that will reel them in more money.

    Dah, didn't the Emu's win?

  • ThisGuuy83ThisGuuy83 Member Posts: 1,303

    Nah, I think it's gonna be Freddy or GF next. That's who everyone's whining about. And when, not if, it happens, that's when it's GAME OVER. I see a lot of killer mains giving behavior the finger.
