Doctor need a nerf



  • DankyDanky Member Posts: 216

    A few points that you didn't mentioned:

    • they removed exhaustion from Doctors addons to include iridescent king which is a nerf.
    • Nerf'd "Restraint" addons.

    just to name a few more.

    the grab could be used for anything to include window and pallet vaults. meaning with PWYF u would grab injured survivors while full-timing static field and get everyone tier'd up while full-timing "calm" addons and distressing, or fulltime 1 restraint and 1 calm, OR calm and Order addons.

    Call it whatever you want dude idgaf. If they don't want people to dc then they should just remove the option entirely. I'm guessing they never wil because if they did I'm guessing a lot of people would just quit this game altogether.

    Did you just suggest that Deathslinger is OP and needs to be nerfed? Wow.. He's one of the worst killers at the moment, you realize this right? You've lost all credibility.

    Doc’s Power slows him down, you also have a sound notification when it’s charging, it also has a very small shock radius.

    dodging is part of the mind game.

    Holding down W on the keyboard won’t win you chases against him

  • PBsamichShoePBsamichShoe Member Posts: 134

    Yeah from someone who plays solo survivor he sucks.

    What credibility? I'm some rando on the internet, not the prime minister. Everything on these forums is all anecdotal. Calm down

    Irisdescent King was buffed in other ways and restraint was made consistent on every class, so these changes don't seem to bad to me.

    But the fact, that the grab was the only thing you reacted to from my wall of text makes me thing that I may be correct about you being in a Freddy situation:

    You found a way to make doctor work really good for you and that's cool, just like some people made old Freddy work really well for them. But I don't think that the majority used the grab as effective as you did (I can't remember even one moment where a Doc grabed me in treatment), his kill stats were bad/mediocre, his pick rate was low in red ranks and most people placed him low on tier lists. Same with old Freddy, after his rework he was a "better Killer" (indicated by his kill rate) and was played more, most people were happier with him. But there are still people who prefered old Freddy and want him back.

    And I think you are in the same situation: The Devs changed the Doc because many people were unhappy with him and from what I've heard (and seen, like I said, I used to face less Doctors than I do now) people are happy about most of the changes (except for the people who think he is op now but that's a different story). You are not happy because you had your own unique playsyle with him which is gone now, but that doesn't mean it was a nerf overall.

    But I guess unless the Devs release stats again in the future we won't know for sure how the changes effected Doc.

    The option is there so that people who really have to go for real life stuff or who are stuck ingame because of a bug can leave without having to tap out to close the game.

    It's not there so you can leave every time when things aren't going like you want them to (that's the reason why there is a penalty for leaving).

    Doctor is okay, he needs only 2 small nerfs.

    This addon is simply too strong (also its weaker versions are extremly good). Combine it with

    and he is in fact overpowered. It removes the slightest chance of counterplay, if the doctor runs them both.

  • OkoruOkoru Member Posts: 144

    ANYONE who complains about Doc needing to be nerfed or that he is overpowered should be rank 20. Doc is not hard to counter. Take UNIQUE pathing don't just run a continuous loop until he shocks you and m1's you twice. He really isn't that hard of a killer to run around the map. Obviously he has some very good maps for him (Hawkins etc) but that's every killer. Entitled survivor mains need to get over themselves and actually try and improve at this game.

    he is such a no skill killer he just blasts a area and he can see other survis easily

  • PBsamichShoePBsamichShoe Member Posts: 134

    TBF I recently played as the deathslinger and I think I get what you mean now.

    Whenever I play against him it's super difficult to the point where I feel like I might as well just give up most of the time.

    When I play as him I can't seem to hit anyone with his rifle. Granted I played him as a level 1 so idk, maybe add-ons would make a difference. I was also playing against a SWF group of purple and red ranks and I'm still a bb killer too.

    I didn't realize how hard it is to aim his gun and how easy it is for survivors to just keep moving back and forth and other simple strategies to avoid it.

  • hannibal322hannibal322 Member Posts: 11

    I guess the question I have is what is hit pick rate? People play whatever they view is strongest. Based on what I see nightly with 50% of my games being against doctor at least. People have to think hes good to see that much play. The same can be said about the clown people say hes weak and I see maybe 1 clown a week to go along with this.

  • ViceusViceus Member Posts: 145

    I am main doctor here...

    I would says... he need a lot of buffs after this rework... about his movement speed.... shock therapy delay... skills shock therapy radius is too small without add-ons....

    After the rework he is only DECENT killer ( around C or B tier maybe )... I only want he is strong like Freddy at least in A or S tier...

    He is perfectly sane and fun

    should i need put a screen of all my killers and survivors on 50 to have the right to say that doctor is OP and i play both sides equaly and i have 1.000h on the game? my main it's huntress and you have to be a great killer with great aim and predictions to make her JUST viable on 8-20 ranks but doctor no he it's just a killer with extreme broken power that literraly takes no skill to do great with him just because YOU think that people that complain are bad don't make this a fact we want that all killers have to a decent power with a decent amount of skill to do great not a bs killer that anyone can literraly hold w and press m2 and win every loop it's frustrating to other main killers see thoses brain dead killers and me as survivors i would love better things to do beside hold w and run around loops until all gens get done this game it's terrible designed and i know about game design and programming there's a lot of easy ways to counter tunnel, camping, dc, hitboxs, unfair punishments(like connection lost, game crashs) and all those things, doctor was good before those powers he's very fun to play when you are the killer because he's overpowered as [BAD WORD] but when you're on the other side he's boring we should make a killer that is fun for both sides not for one side, freed before rework was a little bad but they din't need to give him fake pallets and those stupid pools that don't make him slow when placing BHVR just need to make a feels changes and that's we would have a killer with unique mechanics and that it's fun, now friend it's just a generic killer with generic powers and that's is boring too.
