Rank 1 Killer + A Nurse opinion
For me, personally, I thought the day I would be a Rank 1 killer will never come. Even if it's for one match and the next time I play I will depip and I will never ever be rank 1 again, just the simple fact that for once I've been Rank 1 as a killer is one of the best feelings I've had in a long time. It feels so rewarding that finally, after all the sweat and frustration I've had playing as a killer up until now(versing survivors that literally gen-rush you to the core and just toy you around), I've reached the top spot and I can proudly say: This is the best you can be! It's such a great feeling! Of course, there's always room for improvement and perfectioning yourself over time, but whatever happens, you can never be higher than Rank 1.
It took me freaking ages to get here. 1,254 hours of gameplay to be more specific. And the way I got there was absolutely ridiculous. It all started last night laying at Rank 4 with 2 pips and then I said: let's play a match of Nurse. And from there it was history. It took me 11 consecutive matches as Nurse to get from Rank 4 with 2 pips to Rank 1(pip, pip, pip, double pip, pip, pip, pip, double pip, double pip, black pip, pip). The fact that I got it with Nurse as well is pretty mindblowing for me, considering the fact that a couple of months ago I could barely hit someone with a blink attack...And I can make a personal opinion that, if you know how to play her decently, if it's even better than decent then you're in a great spot, the Nurse is the best killer in the game. The fact that you can cut down multiple chases faster than any other killer is giving you the best advantage in this game. In a game where literally every second matters, she is the best pick out there. Very good map pressure and with the right combination of perks and add-ons and, as I said earlier, at least decent blinks, she is lethal. And it's such a nice rewarding feeling when you chain a couple of blinks to perfection and it ends up with a hit on a survivor being in a spot where he thinks he could never be hit, it motivates you even more, it gives you a morale boost that makes you play even better! It is extremely painful at the beginning until you learn her, you'll have a lot of matches where most survivors escape, but once you get the grasp of her, you will never want to switch her again. She is in a perfect spot the way she is right now. The only problem she has is around some objects which are a bit frustrating to blink through because you'll often end up not blinking at all through them(cars, rocks, hills), but it can be do-able if you slightly charge your blink a bit more than you think is the right amount. Maybe a fix here wouldn't be a problem.
The perks I've used on her to get to Rank 1: Corrupt Intervention(Mandatory), Shadowborn(also mandatory, it helps you A LOT in the blinking phase to see survivors that are hiding behind stuffs), Nurse's Calling(mandatory, it's just OP on Nurse) and Pop Goes the Weasel(but I'd take into consideration Whispers for future plays with her).
Add-ons: Heavy Panting & Kavanagh's Last Breath(Increasing maximum Blink Range and increasing Blink Charge time) + all the add-ons that reduce the time of fatigue after blinks are the best! No doubt in my mind! If you're also on a learning cusp with her, Plaid Flannel is a pretty good add-on(the one that shows you where you blink).
I hope you guys are having an equally great evening as I've had and hopefully I can challenge the most of you into the fog.😁
