Blight is fun - Unless you're going against the same build 50 times with no stop & Sweat Lords...

PilotPilot Member Posts: 1,158

Ruin, Undying, Tinkerer, BBQ & Devour Hope sometimes to replace one of the perks. Throw an Alchemist's Ring in the mix & the match is going to be super fun...

Blight players never heard of build variety.

I'm glad Blight has received 50 buffs up his ass since his release & Billy hasn't been touched since August, almost a year...

I'm honestly mentally exhausted from seeing Blight...

I'm a SoloQ Player, I honestly despise going against Blight cause I know what to expect. He's honestly the only killer that kills me in a majority of matches. The same story, the same build, the same wait last second before you hit someone in lethal rush. Going against a decent & patient blight is a bloody nightmare and a half...

Not to mention how extremely forgiving the lunge in Lethal Rush is...

    I stopped running gen regression on pretty much every killer I’ve ‘mastered’ and continue to 4k. Thing is now the matches are way more interesting than before with pop/ruin.

    I’ve pretty much kept my strong builds and replaced my gen regressing perk with a tracking perk (discordance, whispers).

    I look at builds like this (Ruin, Undying, Tinkerer) as training wheels. Some people need them longer than others for each character.

    Pretty much a rant.

    Haven't seen a different build on Blight in a long long while. It's quite painful to go against as a SoloQ Survivor.

    Yeah, people are free to play however they want, but still... damn....

    Look as much as id like to run fun builds with blight playing him is already playing

    blight vs survivors vs their perks vs collision vs bugs

    id rather not also throw in balancing perks and addons into the mix so it looks like

    blight vs survivors vs blights perks vs their perks vs niche addons vs collision vs bugs vs brown vs board of education

    I will keep using the simple build and strong addons until the rest of his gameplay becomes manageable

    'Since when switching builds & tactics is considered goofing around?'

    Since when does the Killer have to switch tactics and builds for your entertainment? Because that's what this thread is; 'I'm angry Blight players keep using META'.

    Why would they stop? Why would they switch it up if they just want to win? Why should anyone comment on what perks and tactics others use?

    And what would you call it, when people switch off META? Surely they're not trying to win, if they're not using the META, right? That's not a bad thing, mind you. I'm just saying; if someone wants to try their best to win, they'd use the Most Effective Tactics Available to do so. SO what is it, if not 'goofing around'?

    Your thread is that you're angry of the Blight meta, but that implies Blights should stop doing it as per your request. Why? And how will they know they're fighting you?

    It's like logging into DBFZ and saying 'I'm tired of Goku Blacks everywhere. Why not use Krillin sometimes?' and expecting people to do so just because you said so.

    My Blight runs BBQ, Dragon’s Grip, Trail of Torment, and Make Your Choice. Canker Thorn, and Foxglove to recover from rushes faster. Best add on ever since the update made him feel weird. ToT gives him Undetectable for ambushes as he traverses the map. Dragon’s Grip ensures no one touches the gen granting him Undetectable. Since he can immediately rush back when survivors do. I’ll hook players at more open hooks where I can see the savior trying to get away after trigging MYC. I’ll try to cut them off to down them. If the injured friend takes the hit pray that they have Decisive. Anyone abusing BT to take hits for their buddies, and simply not to get away gets tunneled. Always. Idc. Sick of 3 people running BT per match. Getting free saves and then body blocking for free protection hits. Basically carrying them the whole match. Then when I’m survivor not a single soul is ever running it. Every time. I get the most unsafe rescues. 😂

    Should be very easy to get used to it and play around it then.

    Use Small Game. Destroy totems, he is playing with 2 perks now. Simple.

    as a solo queue survivor, I hate playing against a Blight with Ruin/Undying/Tinkerer, it's painful and super boring and i don't wanna throw on some totem perks when it's not guaranteed the killer will have Ruin and potentially Undying with it

    that being said when I play Blight my current build is BBQ, Sloppy (for when I don't have my ability available and can go for M1 hits), Nurse's and Lethal Pursuer

    Are you Na or Eu by chance..

    Cause i normally run Pop Shadowborn Nurses bbq on my Blight

  • theplagggtheplaggg Member Posts: 264

    It is but that isn't the problem I'm talking about. I rarely struggle against Blights. However playing against the same build again and again gets repetitive and boring. I'd love to see something other than ruin, tinkerer, pop and bbq every time.

    Hopefully the devs will buff the weaker killer perks to make some variety accessible for Blight mains.

  • lauraalauraa Member Posts: 2,777

    Rancor is the best perk I have for Blight and even that is unacceptable to use.

    There's no pleasing survivor players so wasting time, effort and energy to please them is a pointless endeavor.

    Because when killers come with interesting builds and challenges regardless of chosen character survivors show up with the same pool of perks and try a speedrun the game because their scoring is so wildly out of whack that short, crappy games lets them pip while killer needs to force the game to slow down by any means necessary and unless the devs are going to add 40secs to each gen at base then sometimes all you can do is play sweaty meta and then both sides have no fun.

    I play primarily for bloodpoints and would love to have fun messing with perks. When I do though I end up not getting enough bp to make the time in lobbies waiting worth the wait.
