Time for actual nurse nerfs...

**Hey this is a repost from my own post in the steam forum. Not copied from someone else.**

First things first, I say that as a NURSE MAIN myself. She needs a nerf (yes, again)

Two things IMO are problematic still :

1. Lunge is extremely forgiving. Make her have a T1 Myers lunge at all times so they actually have to land more precise blinks to hit.

2. The double recharge add ons. These two are BS AF excuse the term but the point of the nurse nerf from 2019 was to make her wait a second to get her second blink back so the survivor has somewhat of a chance to make distance. When they use these 2 blink recovery speed add ons it brings the old obnoxious nurse back ( and God knows all of them run it). You either make these add ons red and purple or you don't let em stack or even better, you REMOVE them.

One more thing, people need to stop saying nurse is hard. For lord's sake she isn't she is just harder for controller players but as far as I'm concerned you can pick her up very quickly and we are seeing more and more of them.

Nobody wants to be in that match with the sweat lord with his double recharge add ons and his saloon/autoheaven map offering (actual free win maps for nurse but map offerings are another topic). Especially casuals (90 %+ of the player base btw). Make it happen please. I know I'm gonna get attacked in this thread probably but I have been playing the nurse since she came out in the game there is no bias here but I feel like I'm the only one seeing how problematic she can be still. Just wanted to share so go off if you want.

    I don't really like the first one, since using White Nit Comb is absolutely miserable.

    Double recharge I can get behind. It's really busted and basically makes it so you don't get punished for double blinking and missing on Nurse.

    Making Nurse's lunges even shorter to raise her skillfloor even higher feels like increasingly blocking the door to newer players from trying what's already perhaps the most intimidating Killer to learn in the entire game.

    Blink recovery speed addons don't exactly bring old Nurse back. The true "old Nurse" was Omega Blink Nurse, which is largely dead and buried.

    I'm sure lots of experienced Survivor and Nurse players have a lot of decent thoughts about the Nurse and how she could be improved, and I'm sure she's not perfect, but I think she's in a decent state. A strong Killer, but Survivors are usually okay with losing against her if it's clear the Nurse they're facing is a very good one, unlike Killers like Spirit a lot more people find infuriating to play against.

    Nurse's lunge sucks most the time, I witness her saw pass through me 80% of the time and my own hits phase right through survivors 80% of the time.

    The recharge addons are fine too, old nurse wasn't a problem at ALL with her old base kit, it was only her ridiculous addons that made her broken. With double recharge she's barely old base nurse with no addons, which was perfctly fine.

    Nurse needs a rework, not just nerf. Maybe making one of her iri add-ons base kit would help

    I've always thought that she's needed a nerf to her lunge. Anytime i've brought it up though nobody has agreed with me. Wanting nurse changed seems like a very unpopular opinion but i'm with you, dude.

    If nurse was easy, you'd see nurse all the time. Even when you are experienced playing nurse you need a stiff drink after a few matches. You don't even account how difficult she is in corn and how dead hard totally counters her. Nurse is unique and that's fine.

    Lol, Nurse is still the hardest killer to master, nerfing her again will mean that her pick rate will drop even further.

    I just hate that there’s no point running from a Nurse. You get spotted, you’re downed. I just don’t bother anymore if a Nurse spots me. I just stand there and take it. Why frustrate myself?

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 5,458

    The Nurses I go against are always pretty inexperienced. They may get the drop on me and get a hit, but after that I run in a straight line and they just never catch up to me... if I go down, it's usually because no one would heal me so I was forced to work on a gen injured. Feels kinda cheap to keep a Nurse busy for a few gens by running around the edge of the map.

    I suppose once the new Tome drops the game will be flooded with inexperienced Nurses.

    2-3,5 second stun + another cooldown on her power + 3.85 m/s + a trail to see where she is going is still not enough?

    and i didnt even mention all the places on every map that she cant blink through

    like you can literary outplay her by running straight forward because shes just not gonna catch up and especially without cooldown addons

  • lol nice bait

  • TheClownIsKingTheClownIsKing Member Posts: 6,278

    I don’t mind the inexperienced ones. I just mostly see Nurses where every Blink is on point.

    There’s no juking or dodging them.

    They already nerfed her lunge. I think the only things that need to be changed on her now are the recharge and range add-ons. Just remove them and we're good. The counterplay Nurse has now is using the small time you have inbetween her blink tokens recharging to actually get somewhere. The 2 recharge add-ons remove that counterplay entirely.

    That and the bugs and horrendous servers. Right now it's so broken that if a Nurse blinks on top of you and swings, she will down you before she even appears from her blink, and she'll sometimes make the wrong sounds. For example she'll be charging a blink and make her fatigue sound like she stopped, but it turns out she didn't stop at all and she was still charging the blink. And there's the countless bugs on the killer's end that I don't need to go into, we all know what they are. Really wish BHVR would wake up and fix this garbage already, it's been over a year and it's still just as broken as it was.
