Why did DBD ruin one of their first DLC characters? AKA the nurse

She had so much potential, such a great backstory, and used to chain blink. I used to be a SS nurse. But now I’m lucky if I get 1 survivor as her. Why would DBD do this?

    Got a question for you.

    If i can hit a survivor with nearly every blink, what do the three seconds CD effectively do?

    More to do with survivor main streamers telling people not to buy the game till nurse is deleted. ( can't clicky clicky tbag a nurse you see.)

    Without fail they would always complain heavily and dc when it was nurse.

    bhvr is doing what the money tells them like a good boy, this is why they said they will not be looking at nurse for a while.

    Seems this is the case for most of the community, because i have been doing all the survivor rift challenges and have not seen a single nurse.

    But you do you i guess.

    I imagine that’s due to having to wait a bit before you can blink again, add-ons alleviate that cooldown period and make it bearable but base kit can feel a little sluggish. For me though, I don’t mind it as much because it gives me more time to plan my next blinks instead of constantly spamming it like I used to, getting myself panicked and missing all my blinks.

    I still do pretty well with her at rank 1. I just wish they would fix her bugs. I randomly move at 5% speed after blinking and sometimes it bugs out and I cant use my second blink. It would be nice if they buffed her blink cooldown or default range, but it won't happen.

    Well there you have it folks, they will not do anything.

    Just ignore the fact that she is a unicorn.

    Why do they only do that for killers? They keep making things easier for survivor. Ruin being the prime example. People who can't hit great skill checks are flooded red ranks now.

    As for nurse, I agree with the add on rework but not the cd to the blinks. I learned her without using more than 2 blinks. When I first tried 3 blinks it felt too easy. I don't like the cd to blinks now. It makes traveling the map harder. By the time I find someone I may have to wait to recharge them before going after someone. Without range add ons most survivors know if they run in a straight line, nurse has to spend 2 blinks just to close the distance and wait to blink again before they can hit you. The great nurses are still strong but that's about it. Every miss placed blink is costly and she is just too frustrating to play now.

    So is survivors weren’t having fun, should they get rid of stealth killers, make all killers slow, and nerf them all to bits? I know a lot of survivors get ANGRY when they loose

  • TokyoTearsTokyoTears Member Posts: 9

    It wasn’t mainly the recharge. Other killers mostly get to use their ability like 90% of the game. Micheal can stalk, the chainsaws keep revving and the bells keep ringing. It’s very challenge to even catch up to survivors most of the time, and when you use the add on that makes her move quicker you are restricted to 1 blink. I know she was like always slow, but the limit of blinks just feels like it makes her slower

    That's IF you even come across a nurse these days. I actually get excited when I play against one now because it's literally 1 in 100 matches lately....

  • TokyoTearsTokyoTears Member Posts: 9

    Very true, I’ve played against her like 2 times after the rework and easily escaped her with no challenge

  • snozersnozer Member Posts: 776

    People would rather play wraith, clown and bubba over nurse.

    Devs nerfed everything Nurse had. They nerfed both add-ons and her power (they added cooldowns on top of stun after using her power). I agree that more than 2 blinks were op, but, imo, cooldowns are not needed. Thats too much.

  • EvilJoshyEvilJoshy Member Posts: 3,546

    Id like to use her more but it's just not fun anymore. Good survivors always run to a building and it's guess work at that point. One match on Badlem literally EVERY TIME I found someone they ran to the school. It got so bad I let them take those generators. Corn is my weakness when playing as Nurse.

    When I play Nurse 1 of 2 things happens.

    1: The survivors suck. They try to treat me like any loopable killer and they get steam rolled. Making me feel bad for beating up newbies.

    2: It's survivors that know what they are doing and it's a stressful game.

    Id much rather play as my trapper or gf. If they fixed some of her bugs I would use my Nurse more but that won't happen.

    1 kill? I just picked her up and am getting 3k/4k all the time. Shes a high skill cap killer meaning she doesnt play well with garbage players. It's either get good or play someone else.

  • Lowercase_SymbolsLowercase_Symbols Member Posts: 18

    The nurse is still the best killer in the game. Just because she’s slightly harder to use because of her add on changes and cool down on blink doesn’t mean she’s the worst killer or impossible to use. You claim to be a ss nurse but any good nurse player that didn’t need to use her add ons because her rework would still say she’s top killer. Most of the people who say she’s “unplayable” or “worst killer” now do not have the high skill level to play nurse or a basic understanding of how to play her.

    Nurse will forever be trash:

    1) If you're not near a dedicated server, the latency causes all sorts of issues with blinking.

    2) The abundance of Nurse-specific bugs makes blinking a nightmare on certain maps.

    3) The above two issues combine horribly with the fact that post-nerf Nurse's map patrol is OBJECTIVELY worse than before.

    Solution: Add two more dedicated servers in USA and elsewhere (IDK about other countries) with higher tick-rate, fix the bugs, and ONLY use the cooldown blink mechanic when Nurse is in a chase.

    People are still complaining about Nurse nerf in 2020? Jeez, get over it.
