Rat liver is like essential to playing Demo and they’re nerfing it. I don’t understand why.
Devs don't play their own game?
If that’s the case I’m gonna be pissed
It's not even remotely essential to playing Demogorgon. It's essential to constantly fake his power.
And that's probably why it's getting nerfed.
Edit: to clarify, I don't think it needed nerfed. I would have preferred them to take the 4% they knocked off of the boost and make it base kit.
I don't know how long you've had the game but if you play it long enough. You start to see a LOT of evidence that suggests they don't. Just look at various patches throughout the games history. There were several "Who thought this was a good idea?" moments.
Ive just P3ed, lvl 50ed Demo but I don't play him often. I actually never used the rat liver so I have no opinion on this add on.
If the recent wraith buff weren’t a thing I’d assume it was the devs just looking at statistics showing rat liver and tail were in almost every demo game and instead of asking why they just nerf it. But taking the fact that they made a purple addon basekit because it was so necessary to play wraith at a high level I’m especially baffled by what they’re doing to demo.
Nerf wouldn't be so bad if they made his other add-ons actually worth using.
But they didn't. So he has No good add ons now.
Meanwhile here i am on both sides as slinger aiming in every 2 seconds till i smack them. Then as survivor having it happen to me. Lol. Same with ph at evey pallet/loop in general. And these 2 dont go at 92% when using it. Demo also cant hit through pallets and walls. He's supposed to excel in the 1v1 but i think ill stick with ph.
They don’t want demo to be able to zone for free
But that’s like one of the only good things about him. Better yet just make rat liver base kit that would improve him majorly.
Theyre taking away his crutches so we can move onto other addons.
But that’s one of the only things that make him decent. Demo is worse now.
Demo is obviously too OP, devs only listen to rank 15 survivors
Where did they say that or have that mindset?
Currently demo and slinger are the only killers who can zone for free. Demo doesn’t need it and the devs don’t want it which is why they are bugging his portals
Isn't that what the other add-ons and base kit buffs are trying to change, to be fair?
I mean of the addons i only see myself using the yellow to break pallets quicker with shred and black heart. Or probably black heart rat liver. So not much changed his yellows and browns are still better than any of his others.
Lets be honest here with demo; Demo really does need the help given that they have no identity otherwise as all of the rest of their mechanics have self defeating mechanics attached to them.
Demo has stealth but it doesn't cancel any of their insanely loud noises they make at all times making the stealth worthless.
Demo can set up portals to get around the map but they become destroyable the moment they are used letting survivors ruin both Demo's set up and mobility.
Demo's portals can detect survivors but only once they become vulnerable and only in a very small area around them WHILE you're actively charging shred.
Zoning was the only thing demo could do that didn't have a drawback or catch to it.
Hence why I want them to buff his other aspects.
Zoning for no downside is just really annoying to fight against hence why slinger is hated on constantly. If they want to make him like 95% move speed sure but 100% is too much
The thing is...everyone pretty much agrees thats the only thing demo did good was zone. And since his other addons are still pretty meh. And his just general playstyle is lacking so much. Im probably gonna still be using rat liver just with black heart. These slight "buffs" make up nothing compared to the murder of his chase potential.
The issue is even if they buff any one part they don't add up to much without the chase.
Its the general issue of "Jack of all trades" characters is that you can buff any part but getting rid of a single one makes it all fall apart.
Demo's stealth doesn't matter as its too inherently restrictive(Tied to portals demo can't move) even if they did remove the sounds.
Demo's portals still require too much set up time for how slow demo is at actually setting them up with no way to fix this issue in sight.
Demo's portal detection even with all of the inactive/shred charging restrictions removed is still too insignificant to matter most of the time unless he can actually win chases.
Demo's chase/zoning is what holding his entire kit together as none of the parts even with most restrictions removed won't actually matter if he can't zone/down anyone.
Because killers shouldn't have fun in their role...apparently
Because survivors found it boring and uninteractive.
