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?
Survivors are the games cash cow, so the devs want to keep them happy.
She was over preforming apparently and they found her too strong so they changed her add ons and base kit. I personally didn't agree with the way they changed her, she is painfully boring now imo.
She was by far the strongest Killer for 3 years. Logical that she will get a Nerf someday, and honestly, for overall game balance something like Nurse needed to be nerfed. You cannot balance the game and keep Nurse as it is.
I also highly doubt that you have been a "SS Nurse". People who were really good at Nurse (aka using her without Add Ons for example, not those people who bypass her Skill Level by putting on Extra Blinks or Range Add Ons) still do really good with Nurse and she is still the best Killer, despite people claiming otherwise.
This story never gets old, might checking the bug section for the nurse? With all of these she is not the best killer anymore by a longshot since no amount of skill makes up for all the bugs she has which are literally game breaking.
Got a question for you.
If i can hit a survivor with nearly every blink, what do the three seconds CD effectively do?
to separate the corn from the cob
Omegablink was not fine and needed nerfs,however IMO they went too far with the recharge.
Because survivors were not having fun.
Nurse should of never been made in the first place.
A killer that ignored all game mechanics is not healthy for the game at all.
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.
I do just as fine with her now as I did before, except that now she’s more punishing. She can still blink through objects and she still has two blinks at default. The ability to quickly teleport through the environment is great for mobility and she has serious snowball potential. If a cooldown on her power killed her for you, she was never for you in the first place. That’s just the way I see it and based on my own experience.
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.
Nurse was and still is the strongest killer in the game by far and the players that were good with her before are still good with her now - without using perks (shadowborn only). The biggest change was the add ons, removing the Omega blink and extra blinks, was really needed because it made nurse incredibly easy to play as, and for such a strong killer a high skill cap is needed.
She's definitely not weak now, she's still the strongest - what I hear most from Nurse mains though is that it's less fun to play with her base kit right now, that there's a frustration element to it.
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 totally believe that since the game deciding to not let you blink a 2nd time, while hearing nurse charging the blink 10x a second is really cool. Also when the game decides to completely disable your 2nd blink or even the first for the rest of the game. Also the dead zones are incredibly funny, like play an offering for sanctum of wrath and feel the power of a killer that literally can not use his power at all. Other funny bugs are having lunge disabled for whatever reason after a blink or being completely glued to the ground and no it is not the fatigue because usually you can walk but very slowly and the list goes on.
10/10 best killer, no doubt about it.
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
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 pretty much what's been happening?
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....
Very true, I’ve played against her like 2 times after the rework and easily escaped her with no challenge
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.
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.
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.
