Locker Buff should be reverted

Why do you ask? Well multiple reasons actually:

  1. If you use object of obsession and are in a locker you can see the killers aura but he cant see yours.
  • This is rediculus from balance perspective and makes it even easier to hold the game hostage.
  1. It nerfs a lot of perks and addons that dont need any nerf at all.
  • While some will argue for a BBQ nerf (which promotes camping) which i openly admitt i am against it not only nerfs BBQ but also Bitter Murmur, Vanity Mirror and Scratched Mirror addons from myers which clearly dont need any nerf as well as the All seeing addons from the wraith.
  1. It nerfs Freddys power
  • A nerf for freddy is rediculus. The weakest killer in the game gets nerfed. Good move BHVR.
  1. Survivors dont need this buff.
  • It will not only buff solo survivors but also swf which really dont need it. Instead you should have given them perks like bond for free so solo survivors are closer to swf groups stuff that bridges the gab between solo and swf but dosent increase the maximum potential.

Thx for reading.

    I agree with your point about Object of Obsession. Survivors in lockers shouldn't be able to read the aura of others, at least of killers. It gives them an unfair advantage, and I believe it was unintended.
    Apart from that though I actually like that lockers have been given a bit more of a meaning. i think the buff is fine personally.

    I see it as more of a nerf to solo survivors. When the killer downs me after a chase, gen progression stops while the rest of the team gets in lockers.

    I guess to counter somehow the number of aura reading perks.
    After all if u are in locker u cannot do anything, u cannot stay there forever and probably in the end it slows down the game even more forcing people to do in and out of lockers (if they want).

    just guessing.

    Either reverted, or make it so no one can see Auras in lockers.

    Meaning that your Aura can’t be seen in lockers, but you also can’t see other Auras.

    Its worth it to just hop into lockers for some seconds to avoid bbq. He wont know where anyone is and in a lot of situations spents a lot of time time searching before he finds someone compared to aquireing a bbq target the additional time needed will off set the few seconds you spent in a locker. Not only that if you dont do lockers all the time he dosent know if you guys are close or in a locker this can lead to time wasted if he thinks someone is close too.

    And noone says do it all the time do it depending on the killers and yours/teammates position.

    I feel the same. Even though BBQ didn't need another nerf, lockers actually mean something right now.

    This change should happen imo. Kiddos to you for instead of whining, coming up with a good idea.

    Sidenote: Wraith now only has one Survivor-aura Add-on.

    By making use of Aura reading perks and communicating that information to teammates.

    Not tried yet, but I assume this means Bond no longer shows survivors hidden in lockers? That's no good.

    One of the reasons I run Bond is to see when I have a team of f*ckwits who are just hiding and not doing anything.

    It really should. It, along with Breakdown and Distortion, are just the result of BHVR once again giving in to the whiny Scrubvivors and proving to us that they don't give two ######### about Killers. I would not be surprised if it was hard for them to implement the healing nerfs in 2.3.0 and the Legion buffs for 2.4.0.

    I like how devs avoid these kind of discussions and tend to answer the most ridiculous questions in here, the same how they do it in live streams .. the reason probably for business purposes
    They're like saying "you want to counter lockers aura issue, go buy new dlc to counter it"
    Who cares about your dedicated servers when your game is totally broken and unbalanced ?

    Use Iron Maiden then?

    You can't tell eachother such information as solos.
    Or, y'know, as solo, you'd have to quickly friend all your fellow Survivors, pray they accept & then tell them.

    To get people to use lockers more. So Iron Maiden would be stronger.

    It gives lockers more use. Before they were just for new players to be scared in and for the occasional Q&Q play. This way lockers can actually be used to hide more effectively, rather than being a death sentence because the killer sees your goofy statue shaped aura sitting there free for the picking.

    I do agree that OoO probably shouldn't do that, though I don't see any huge problem with it either. Keeping track of the killer is already fairly easy. The perk usually doesn't see much use, and when it does, it's to get the killer's attention and get them to waste their time searching an area for you.

    BBQ is going to be even better now with Iron Maiden. Survivors who try to hide their aura will be exposed and have the location revealed anyways.

    Regarding Freddy though, he's going to be reworked. This is not to nerf Freddy.

    I have been waiting for the day that people cried over lockers. Thank you DBD community.

  • The_CrusaderThe_Crusader Member Posts: 3,688
    You think they give a ######### about OoO using lockers? They've allowed swf to get away with it on comms for years now.

    A locker just makes it even easier for them. They've proven time and time again that they have absolutely no intention of ever balancing this perk.

    I'm just annoyed that it nerfs. All seeing on Wraith, Amanda's Letter on Amanda and both Mirror add-ons for Myers.

    None of these need a nerf.

    Mirror add-ons: you're moving slowly so you have to rely on surprise attack as you can't handle chases. You're also locked out of evil within tier 3.

    Amanda's Letter: You're removing three traps and two boxes practically removing any stall or end game potential for a mediocre 12 m. Now to even active this aura reading you have to crouch and you can't rely on that for too long or too much because in crouch mode your slower than nurse.

    All seeing: probably the most balanced out of the four add-ons due to the cloak mechanics yet again doesn't need a nerf. Also it's Wraith come on people

    Hello

    There are more changes coming in to balance OOO. We will announce them soon.

    We will also take into consideration the lockers effect when doing Freddys rework. (actually any killer's power, thus the existence of the new Killer Instinct effect on The Legion)

    Thank you!

    If this includes OoO in swf then thank you. I would feel 1000 times better about the game.
