Thank you guys for reading

I used the dbd patch notes format to make this more realistic.

    I came across this while looking through the forums and felt like giving some feedback specifically on the chapter idea.

    Hell's Fever Power:

    This seems like a cool concept, but I feel like it would be way too easy to kill survivors due to how powerful this ability currently is. First, the Aching Status Effect's properties carry the same problem that old Legion had, that being old Legion had no counter. If you hit a survivor with a fireball, then it is basically a death sentence. Since the survivor will most likely still be in a chase with the killer, they won't have time to find a water bucket, meaning the Aching Status Effect guarantees a free down for little effort. On the other hand, if the survivor wanted to find a water bucket, then the killer would just stop them anyways. This leads to a "Die if you do, die if you don't." scenario, which could make facing The Pyromaniac frustrating. The only counter to this that I could think of would be the survivor using the perk, Lucky Break, but even after Lucky Break's duration is up, they're screwed.

    On top of what I already mentioned, having the Aching Status Effect slow the survivors is a little overkill, effectively power creeping The Clown. In other words, there is zero point in playing The Clown when you could just play The Pyromaniac. Also, having the dying state bar only last 55 seconds could lead to very boring gameplay, with the killer only choosing to slug the survivor to kill them in 80 seconds at minimum. This is less than two hook states and would need to be adjusted to be balanced.


    I chose not to review the addons since I usually prefer to play without them. Also, things may sound good on paper, but need adjusting later on. This means that all of the time put forth into making addons could have been used for something else.

    Burning Sensation:

    I like this perk idea a lot! It offers an interesting alternative to existing gen-defense meta perks and spices things up!

    Fire Obsession:

    This perk is essentially Hex: Thrill Of The Hunt, but better. Fire Obsession power crept Hex: Thrill and essentially makes it pointless to run it. One of the bigger problems with killer perks is that the usage of killer perks is very small and the usage needs to be expanded, leading to more unique and interesting games.

    My Special Guest:

    This is an interesting idea, but it encourages camping. Also, this perk is just straight-up overpowered.

    Survivor Perks:

    Nerd Instincts:

    This perk has the same issues as the first version of Decisive Strike, essentially serving as a 'Get out of jail free card'. It would also make grabbing survivors even less reliable than it already is now.


    This is a very interesting idea for a perk, but I feel like the effects for 1 and 3 tokens are too weak. Maybe the effects could last longer?

    Payed Attention:

    This perk is interesting. I'm not sure whether it is balanced, overpowered, or weak. I feel like the only reliable way to get use out of this perk would be for a teammate to divebomb the hooked survivor with this perk equipped. Even after this perk to work, Borrowed Time is just a stronger version of Payed Attention since the timer only starts after unhooking the survivor, not right when you get hooked.

    Overall, you have some pretty neat ideas! I suggest you take a second look at some of the perks and parts of the killer's power and adjust them to make them more balanced. After doing that, I think the changes would be very interesting.
