why is nothing done about bloodlust??

seriously, i think these devs never think before they act. now when they reworked maps they left out shelter woods, hawkins and the game. why? it is very obvious these maps need changes, but no we dont get them because the devs don't think further. it's now obvious because they also didn't remove bloodlust. i just wanted to ask what makes you think these changes are good without adjusting the other side as well? do you think making every map a dead zone without removing bloodlust is a good change? where the hell do we need bloodlust when "god loops" are being removed and we can easily catch survivors now, bloodlust is overkill. you can't just make changes by looking from one angle and ignoring other point of views..

    Hawkins needs to be changed and Shelter Woods needs a slight change. That's it.

    Lol only 2 maps. Cry some more.

    As much of a pain the Meat Plant can be, I think it is fine where it is. Hawkins should be looked at all together and Shelter Woods could do with more walls or some sort of cover but that is it. Bloodlust should not be removed just yet. We have to see how the update goes when it hits live servers. Not sure why you put god loops in quotes as they do definitely exist. I have seen them on both sides and it makes the survivor untouchable. That shouldn't be a thing

    Yeah 45s to bloodlust 3 for every pallet. You'd be gen rushed after 3 pallets. My only problem with bloodlust is that you can transfer your BL to chase with other surv. Btw it's fine or need little nerf. There are still maps like disturbed ward. Or you can be looped around 1 loop as deathslinger or huntress without bloodlust

    I 100% agree with you. I posted about bloodlust too just now. Glad to see someone else discuss it

    You guys aren't grateful at all. You get some good changes, take them

    There's a reason people say Beast of Prey is a trash perk... The effect is tied to bloodlust activating.

    Oh man if only you were around when bloodlust wasn’t a thing.. you were NEVER able to catch survivors who could just loop you until the 5 gens are done and everyone’s gone. Maybe you should take notes from your critiques of the devs and think About things before you say something. Bloodlust is completely fair in the current state of things.

  • Gamingwalrus51Gamingwalrus51 Member Posts: 45

    you have to waste 45 seconds twice to down a survivor. Thats 3 gens done while "Bloodlusting every pallet"

    You know, i never saw complaints about bloodlust UNTIL this patch. It's almost like survivors have a list of changes they want made every time killers even get a slight pat on the head.

    Idk any killer that's facing anyone under Rank 15 that gets 4Ks from just Bloodlusting. Stop exaggerating to make your point seem stronger.

    Mindlessly? Do you know how long it takes for bloodlust to activate? Do you know how long it takes for Bloodlust to activate 3 times?

    If you've bloodlusted a killer, you shouldn't be upset at yourself, you've bought your team a lot of time already.

    You're not meant to live forever dude, you're meant to die. The actions you do during the chase decide that.

    If you're making changes, bloodlust is something that should be looked at before you even release the update on the PTB.

  • IvaldiIvaldi Member Posts: 977

    What actions are we going to be able to do at this point? Survivors aren't meant to die, they're meant to escape.

  • BigBrainMegMainBigBrainMegMain Member Posts: 3,826

    You're meant to die, the killer's purpose to to sacrifice you.

    It's the reasoning behind Bloodlust, the killer is meant to catch you.

    What YOU do, also decides that.

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 4,714

    Seems like a bit of an overreaction though. Killers that rely on Bloodlust to end chases will most likely lose anyways because they are wasting too much time waiting for Bloodlust to build up.

    No doubt that it will need to be removed once maps are more or less balanced though, and the devs will certainly get to that.

  • Deadman316Deadman316 Member Posts: 578

    This answer's simple, the devs want to coddle and cater to bad killers that whine about being looped because they're either not smart enough, or too lazy to want to work at being a better killer. So those killers can now win trials more easily with the changes while keeping bloodlust, loose hitboxes and Ebony Mori.

  • ReinamiReinami Member Posts: 2,458

    Yeah, kinda like when they nerfed ruin before they fixed gens speeds, and toolboxes, and god loops, and god windows and infinites? it's kinda like that maybe. Maybe you need to make smaller changes and see how it works before you decide to nerf something else too.

  • ClickyClickyClickyClicky Member Posts: 3,536

    Bloodlust isn’t that bad. Bloodlust 3 is op though. When a killer wants to tunnel they just resort to that.

  • KellieKellie Member Posts: 1,328

    What good changes? Killers have been receiving all the good changes recently because devs finally realized that they need some changes, and have recently unnecessarily nerf some stuff on the survivors side when no one asked.

    Its crazy how from like 2 to 3 weeks ago all I mainly saw was "Survivors easy mode and killer gets treated unfair" and now its reversed. Devs re balancing the game as best they can. I can say a few months ago I was the same, but I guess I matured and realize I need to be patient. In my opinion any survivors right now complaining and such can leave the forums. You don't know how the ptb will be so just wait for it. I'm someone who can't even try the ptb as I'm a console pleb. These changes are for the better like the ruin nerf was, it just takes time to adjust. And to be real if youra survivor complaining now wanting things not to be changed then I guess killers are the bigger person since most of them have dealt with the nerfs they are handed. Yes there are killers that complain here but the point is I see way more survivors than killer posts. Also bloodlust imo should stay until these maps have all been changed and tweaked and feel balance between the majority of players on both sides as it was a bandaid fix for map design and as they are now changing them bloodlust should be on its way out soon.

    The killer should be able to down anyone he is chasing and if you need BL2 or BL3 to do that your already throwing the game by taking too long to down someone. Good survivors will capitalize on this and now you have a 5 minute game.
