The state of Nurse.

I've been playing Nurse almost exclusively for about 2 months now, during this time I have encountered bugs that have been around for at least a year (since her rework I believe) they are relatively consistent but I have no method of accurately replicating them.

The first is that the Nurses power will not allow you to use a second blink charge, you will be stuck in a state of hearing the nurse charge it but it will never actually blink you forward causing you to fatigue as soon as it expires. This may occur only once per game, or as it happened a few days ago, I was stuck with a single blink charge for most of the game.

The second bug is when you quickly move your mouse the camera will clip into the Nurse's shoulders and block more than 2/3 of the screen. This happens every game and is more likely to occur while looking at the ground.

I'm not sure if it is intended or another bug but some times the nurse doesn't get stunned by pallets, I noticed this far more often if it occurs during her fatigue animation, but it also happens frequently enough while picking up a survivor (I know this also happens on other killers but it's much more common on the Nurse from my experience).

I don't think Nurse needs any buffs or changes as she is a strong killer that rewards the time and effort required to do well but playing with these bugs can be incredibly game-breaking and frustrating to play around.

Would it be possible to get some sort of confirmation from a dev that these bugs are acknowledged and are actively working on a fix?

    Thats a Bug, it also happens with other Killers, got not stunned as Wraith and did not stun a Billy.

    The thing about Nurse-Bugs is that they will most likely be linked to Dedicated Servers. Because when Nurse got reworked, Dedicated Servers went live as well. And if it is a Dedicated Servers-Issue, it will take a while. I mean, they just said a few months ago that Dead Hard is gonna be reworked from scratch to work in Dedicated Servers. And this is only one single Perk, I cannot imagine how much more time it would take to fix the Bugs on Nurse.

    All of this I've experienced too. Unfortunately Nurse isn't exclusive to issues and these things happen not crazy often (like if this were rockstar would be patched out within the week but I digress). Luckily these bugs were like 1/20 games for me which isn't too shabby for BHVR standards.

    At least with pallet stunning nurse is so rare that it becomes a glaring issue. Though I've pallet saved on nurse a few times and she hasn't taken the stun and walked off after it made the stun sfx. So bloody buggy.

    Maybe if they weren’t using cheap ass Amazon cloud based servers it’d be fine.

    Is it normal, that if you watch slightly down, the blink-"meter" gets stuck for a brief moment at a wall / haystack etc.? Because that sucks.

    Nurse doesn't get stun while in fatigue just like other killers cannot be stun while in animation.

    Most of the issue stated are because of dedicated servers. Some of the logic was made client side like where you land after blinking. Before that, landing after a blink would rubber band you around. But other things are server side. Which delays and drop packets cause many of what you mentioned.

    I dont think that the Servers itself are the problem. The problem is that a P2P-game is running on Dedicated Servers so this needs to be adapted. And given the fact that there are like at least 3 years of P2P-work in the game, this will take a long time.

    This isn't a thread on Nurse balance but I'd say you're definitely biased in that view; Nurse isn't the most balanced killer, she is the most overpowered killer in the entirety of DBD, including MDR+Yakuyoke Spirit. However the reason why so few people complain about her is because the skill floor and ceiling of Nurse is so stupidly high that you both rarely see her and to maximise her potential must put in a tonne of hours into her. If there were more people good at Nurse then there'd be more complaints about her, because the only thing you can do vs a god Nurse is to not get seen. She's definitely far from balanced but I don't think the devs need to nerf her due to her being so hard to play; it's good to have something strong in a game after all that you have to learn to use *cough* spirit *cough*.
