Are you happy or dreading the new chapter update?😌

I am looking forward to it to see if boon totems become a new meta and to use the new built to last as a survivor.

As a killer I am looking forward to it for trapper (I know I know😂)

How about the rest of you?

Are you happy because of the appearance of boon totems ,your favorite killer/killer addons or perks got buffed?

Or are you dreading the update because of boon totems or your killer/killer addons got nerfed?

    Dreading, just I've dread Patch 3.1.0 and almost everything released after it.

  • I am happy all around, new updates, new content.

    The Shape got add-on buffs and the stalk meter bug fixed. The Pig got an add-on pass, which i am excited for but slightly worried it'll be a nerf.

    Every other add-on got their description updated so that's great for me.

    Boon totems i am slightly worried about, but i am excited because it's a new mechanic.

    Mikaela Reid is also a cool survivor, i hope she gets cool cosmetics though.

    I’m worried about boon totems but other than that i’m super excited for the update!

    Pig nerf, Deathslinger nerf, Trapper buff and spirit nerf are not enough to fix them, Boon totems are op. Yeah im worried about this patch

    At least Plague is strong now!

    I am absolutely dreading it

    Now I haven't played PTB as a console player so I'm hoping it's unfounded but Boon Totems just seem like an awful idea all around. For solo queue, this is just another thing that gives the SWFs a big advantage (since they can plan out and talk to one another what their plan is) while half a team of solos might be trying to break the totems while the other half is trying to keep them alive for boons. Just another thing that BHVR threw in where communication can make or break the mechanic while forgetting that their game doesn't have that as a feature...

    For killers, especially high rank like myself, it can be hard enough to find and take out survivors quickly enough without adding another objective for me to do (and an objective that I can't even permanently kill off as me snuffing out boons just means the survivor has to take 14 seconds to relight it).

    The Plague changes are nice as I really like to play as her so I've got that goin for me I guess...

    If my wish for time to rewind to back when I was 11 years old and keeping all of the knowledge I have until now intact ever comes true, I’ll make sure to invest in Apple and BitCoin and purchase Behavior and hire you on as the games director.

    I am sad we lost 2 killers and boon perks are broken afff.

    Like they make hexes strong perks, so why the hell they dont do the same to boon? LoL

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 6,273

    I...I am flattered, my dear friend. I do not deserve such kindness.

    Now I sincerely hope your wish comes true.

  • lauraalauraa Member Posts: 1,690

    im excited for tombstone and vanitys buffs.

  • CrowmanCrowman Member Posts: 3,633

    I feel the same. Slinger was one of the few killers I absolutely enjoyed playing and now the fun aspect is getting absolutely gutted. Not to mention I have a really bad feeling the devs will nerf him more since the ADS movement buff made his M2 spam for zoning even better (especially with some other addons).

  • Dilif69Dilif69 Member Posts: 126

    yes... but no plague chase theme :(

  • BigChapAlien21BigChapAlien21 Member Posts: 171

    A little bit of both, honestly.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 2,546

    Both I would say. Plague and Trapper are fun killers and both gets a buff, although Trapper will still probably be the worst killer in the game but Plague could be A-tier now. The rest idk bone totems don't like that idea. Windows will be super strong I will use that all the time. No cooldown always knowing where pallets are, what pallets are gone etc is crazy.

  • SirGandoSirGando Member Posts: 375

    i hate it. but i already somewhat quit the game or lets say lost interest, so it doesnt really matter anymore to me.

  • EvilBarney666EvilBarney666 Member Posts: 137

    I am dreading it. I feel with each patch they make survivors stronger and stronger. I understand the need to make it easier for them. It's standard business. Cater to the majority.

    Survivors outnumber killers. You have swf. They need easier games. The more survivors win they will be more inclined to get their friends to buy the game. That's more for BHVR with chapters and cosmetics.

    Think about this. SWF does indeed have an advantage. Have they given killers anything to compensate them for the level of communication they get. No they have not. I don't feel anyone should be punished for wanting to play with friends.

    I feel that the killer should be compensated in some way. However that is I do not know. With boon totems I feel the the level of coordination the survivors will be able to use will make them even stronger. The killer is supposed to be the Power role. It just does not feel that way to me now.

  • skylerboundskylerbound Member Posts: 317

    Dreading, I think I'm just burned out. I used to be excited for when Switch got cross progression to play killer on PC but I kinda don't care anymore.

  • MarcoPoloYoloMarcoPoloYolo Member Posts: 508

    Wake up call for you. Many survivors will shame you for anything. Don't get your hopes up. Shaming is rarely genuine.

    Also, to answer the OP. Dreading assuming the devs don't tweak their work before launch (they have before and may do so again). The bad outweigh the good. If left unchanged, the end result will be 1 less killer in the S-tier, Trapper getting a good buff, but isn't enough to change where he stands, Plague gets a nice buff, but Deathslinger gets unfairly nerfed into a ground in the laziest way possible, and the boon perks are problematic, and the add-on change list for killers other than Pig are lackluster.

    What I really dread is the precedent this midchapter sets. BHVR is done with changing killers and trading what they're good at. All DS and Spirit needed was a nerf to how unfair their 1v1 is while boosting the 1v4. However, any time something on the killer side is deemed "unfun" a net nerf is incoming balance or the killer's fun be damned. Speaking of balance, they didn't say Spirit was OP for her nerf, but they said Wraith was. Let that sink in for a moment.

    Well it certainly won’t be as much as before. You are right though.

    I was expecting a Pig buff, all she got is a nerf on her best addons and buff on other less powerful ones, so they actually nerfed Pig at her highest potential. So no, i don't want this patch to come, not to mention boon totems and all the new bugs that will be introduced.

  • Marc_go_soloMarc_go_solo Member Posts: 2,630

    Really looking forward to it overall, although if the devs cannot see the current issue with the Boons and do not change them into a fairer perk that could be quite troublesome.

    I don't feel they need to add the dust kick up from footsteps with Spirit, as the directional phasing is more than adequate.

  • TacitusKilgoreTacitusKilgore Member Posts: 1,382

    Not dreading, just anxious. I have a good feeling they'll dish out some much needed small nerfs to some of the more OP stuff in the PTB (blood favor and the boons for example) to make the live build more stable, but theres always a chance they won't and we'll have a terrible live build.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 2,546

    Btw what date is it?

  • MarcoPoloYoloMarcoPoloYolo Member Posts: 508

    I don't think Blood Favor is OP outside of what's probably glitches cough*Trickster*cough. One of the core issues of Blood Favor is that it's optimal to just hold W after being hit to a far-away pallet............... which won't be affected by Blood Favor.

  • ThiccBudhhaThiccBudhha Member Posts: 4,421

    Yeah, not going to lie, every update scares me a little. One day they will nerf a killer I actually enjoy in a way that effects my enjoyment. This update was more or less a net positive for me with Plague and Ghostface buffs to compensate for the Slinger nerf.

  • TacitusKilgoreTacitusKilgore Member Posts: 1,382

    Its not strictly "OP" i don't think. But it does get a bit ridiculous on certain killers because of its new range, huntress/slinger/trickster(if we talk about trickster in the intended sense where only a knife injure activates the perk) can stomp with it since one of their main weaknesses is getting a barrier between you and them. Killers like demo might also be overly strong with it as well since they prioritize their M2's over their M1's. The range makes the perk super scary, but in the end i guess it can be justified with the fact its a hex. I Fully support it having no cooldown though, its ridiculous for a hex perk to have a cooldown.
