Legion - the good the bad and the fix(?)
Hey there dbd team,
After playing a lot on the ptb i decided to write my feedback on the legion (I'm sorry for my poor english but i hope you will get my points)
The rage of the Legion feels fast and fun. The feeling of being able to chain your attacks is a good one and in the beginning you actually feel like you have an impact on the game as you can hit many survivors in a very short period of time.
Hits don't mean anything in this game as long as you are not able to down survivors and that's where the Legion struggles most. You have many injured survivors but at last you won't be able to down anybody as you will get looped for a very long time due to the movementspeed of 110%.
As survivor you don't feel pressured to heal as you are basicly safe as long as a pallet is nearby so the killer doesn't even waste time by hitting them with the rage. So in the end the rage feels like a useless tool as it doesn't help you to down a survivor.
The fix (?): Getting stronger by chaining attacks
As many of the people here I don't want to see you guys to release a weak killer and we want to appreciate your work for the community.
That's why my fix tries to emphasize the good and fun things about the legion: The chain attacks.
In my opinion the chain attacks should reward you for hitting multiple people (so to do the thing the killer instinct tries to encourage you)
First hit in a chain attack: Inflicts deep wounds
Second hit in a chain attack: Inflicts deep wounds + 25% less blood left
Third hit in a chain attack: Inflicts deep wounds + 50% less blood left
Fourth hit in a chain attack: Instantly downs a Survivor
Sounds strong? Yes! But you can counterplay as survivor by not sticking together against the Legion.
Let's have some Examples:
The Legion finds 2 Survivor close together
First Survivor gets a hit and deep Wounds; 2nd Survivor will get 2nd and 3rd hit and so has 25% blood left; rage ends
Legion finds 3 Survivors close together
First Survivor first hit, 2nd gets 2nd hit, 3rd gets 3rd and fourth hit and gets downed by the fourth hit.
In this way the Legion is a threat to groups of survivors but not a real threat to single survivors.
Numbers are just examples and could be tweaked.
I hope you like the idea of getting stronger by chaining attacks.
Have a nice day.
