Spirit unlike any other killer gives no indicator that she is using her power other than by standing still. Using that as a comparison to other killers is a fallacy
Like I said I like the guy and he makes decent points but just like he also says as well he hates when people quote him and his videos and act like a hive mind instead of forming their own opinions.
And I agree with that, I certainly disagree with a lot of what he says (for example, spawns being the problem. They're not, imo they highlight it). But a lot of the time the criticism is misdirected given the genuine evidence that he provides and the logic he at least tries to use, as compared to the fans that just parrot opinions.
part of me doesn't want spirit to get nerfed because she's the only killer in the game that can use basically any perk and get away with it, which is fun from time to time. even nurse can't make effective use of all the perks in the game.
if the stand still mind game is a issue why not just remove her heartbeat when she phases then you know shes phasing but leave everything else as is.
That's an idea or remove her husk that she leaves behind so she's completely invisible. That way she'd still be powerful and it would be fun to go against.
Another Scotts take is taken as holy gospel of ultimate truth here. You love to see it
My personal take on how they could change Spirit is that they should make injured survivor's audio muffled or echoed, basically some type of SFX where she wouldn't be able to easily pinpoint the survivor's exact location. I say this because when survivors are healthy and she is phasing she also has to play the guessing game in terms of exact location of the survivor.
The reason I think this would ease some of the concerns people have about her is that, by using her phase she is sacrificing her ability to see survivors, but when you can hear the survivor's grunts and pains so crystal clear (almost as if you could see) It sort of makes that power condition meaningless. It would be cool if she also had an element of having to predict the exact position of a survivor.
That's just my 2 cents
If you werent able to see survivors while passive phasing, I asure you that it would be a game breaking buff because u would easily be able to take true advantage of the passive phasing on loops and chases.
Unfortunately there are to many sheep's in dbd.
Whenever their favourite content creator says something, then immediately they take that as the only thing that is correct.
They can't think for their own anymore and need others to tell them what to think.
Trying to finding things out themselves or form their own opinion is to much effort these days.
bro i do not understand this argument. you either think spirit has counterplay or you don't. how can you say i claim the entire fact she has no counterplay as MY idea. you can only believe 1 or 2. its not crazy that some people will in fact align their ideas. not everyone is a sheep, sheesh
No condescension intended, but I've noticed people have a tendency to assume my opinion is the same as someone else's whose opinion I'm sharing/talking about, even if they asked for it or if it's the topic of conversation. A common example is the devs' opinions on a certain topic, which others try to force me to defend as if it were my own. I just wanted to be completely explicit that it's his opinion I'm talking about and that I wasn't sharing my own.
Take a look at his post history. Contributes nothing to discussion.
Spirit doesn't have counterplay dependant on survivor skill. Guess I'm a sheep then because my opinion aligns with yours according to this guy. I agree with you therefore I didn't form my own opinion.
Here i make a list of what happens in this forum lately
It is because I'm not a sheep that I can agree with you on this, even if we disagree on Spirit having a counter.
For the record - and this is for everyone calling other people "sheep" for agreeing with Scott or whomever - being a contrarian doesn't make you "not a sheep". You're still defining your opinions based entirely on what someone else said, just in a different way.
I can say right now that I wouldn't accept his challenge because:
Spirit mains are sweating bullets right now lol. I'm sorry you've been carried by an unfair, imbalanced build but your time will come.
There are killers with weaker builds than you and still manage 4ks. Get gud
What I mean is that there are to many sheep's nowadays and just jump on the bandwagon of their favourite content creator.
Sure there are still people who can at least think for themselves, but many will believe almost everything others say.
And i don't mean you personally as a content creator who stated she doesn't have counterplay, there are many more same as the opposite.
But it doesn't take away the fact many will believe everything you say.
Hell I wouldn't even be surprised if a content creator would say legion or plague for example are OP or doesn't have counterplay, and more than half of their fanbase/viewers/followers will jump on and say the same without actually trying to get to a conclusion of their own.
That is all I was trying to say and was not an attack to anyone personally.
And yes I believe she has counterplay.
Did I follow the mass?
Nope, just by trying things for myself, and sure some things I've seen others too.
Again, it was nothing personal, it's just behaviour I noticed over the years.
Spirit does not have counterplay and is very strong for how easy it is to play her. For survivors its basically a just hope for the best with her and she is so frustrating and boring for survivors. Still shocked she hasnt been changed yet.
Ya, let's talk about girls should we?
And even then, she may not be using her power. Yet you have to guess whether she is or not. Much skill.
IMO just make it clear if she's using power or not
No other killer gives 0 visual feedback about what they're doing with their power either though.
That's my point.
But if you suspect a Spirit is faking her phase, all you have to do is leave the area, it's the least problematic part of her power.
But that's a 50/50 guess not a mind game or something you out play.
It would still be a 50/50 even if they got rid of the stand still mindgame, most good Spirits don't even do the stand still mindgame and there's still nothing you can do to try and extend chase.
But at least you know what she's doing and can't get a down by standing in one place and doing nothing.
Wouldn't making up one's own mind including being persuaded and agreeing with someone, though? If the argument convinces more people than not, that's still people making up their own minds. Are you sure you aren't just being contrary for other reasons like maybe you don't like the creator or just don't like being of the minority opinion?
I don't agree one way or another but it sounds like you assume everyone that doesn't agree with you is doing it mindlessly.
No that's not what I'm saying. You can agree with him it's just when people quote him word for word like it's gospel because he said it. This is something even he has said he finds annoying when people do this.
