I’m willing to let pig go but the rest I’m cool with. At least they have an interesting power that’s fun to play against :)
Been playing Trickster for some days, the problem with him isnt exactly himself but the maps, you get a low wall map or open and you destroy, you get a high wall or indoor map and you get destroyed.
If maps had roughly 50% of low walls and high walls maybe he could be a better Killer, with current map style discrepancy its impossible to balance him in any way, you make him stronger he becomes godly on places like Autohaven or Shelter Woods, you nerf him he becomes a 4 escape at 5 minutes on places like Yamaoka State or Crotus Penn.
How , bubba able to spam a easy down chain saw and easily end a match before it begins best tunneling/face camper, plague killing your astrium category for healing yourself and team? spirit with her dead self and boring zig zags ?
maybe not the knife increase, but I love everything else!
Why not have a dark twisted selfish survivor👌
I prefer a rework but if they can't then:
Plague has a lot of counterplay around when to cleanse and dodging puke. Bubba has a lot of counterplay around windows and baiting him to saw. Spirit has less but gives options and is punished for missing
I highly doubt he will get a full power rework, as the closest thing we every got to a killer getting a rework was freedy. But if he ever did, his power should be something related to a form of trickery.
Plague is no counter play cause she spams a passive no mither on you, you cleanse too early its bad, you cleanse too late its bad, she infects everything including windows/pallets/lockers so you cant even use lockers, coughing gives you away so she know where you are all the time people then gets afraid to do rescue saves or gens because of being infection. Spirit with her twister zig zag and insane speed, bubba that even if you get to a window else when your in a big area with no close pallets or anything to save you, its a down. Not to mention their scrummy face camping/tunneling ways even though I stay away from basements all the time.
Trickster cant do none of these things that these 3 can do. He has counter play. Both plague and bubba should have still get that movement slow down if they using their M2 cause removing it really was a stupid thing or least they need their MS reduced to 110% heck even lower, Trickster lacks mobility and can barely catch up to people. Else like bubba and plague they better remove that speed limit he gets when using his M2
I've been playing him quite a bit and really enjoying him so not much actually.
Remove the recoil so he isn't completly impossible on console but that's about it
It's almost needed because you can't decrease laceration while in chase because you have to do it manually in my version.
6 knives with manual laceration decay would be a bit to much.
I meant carried knives, but I agree.
Rework him so he is not a Ranged killer! Nothing is more maddening that to go down in a deadzone because he shows up.
Make him playable on Controller/Console. How can you aim and chase constantly on a controller?
Why though? Old Trickster had to hit 8 times and had 60 knives. It makes just sense to increase it while also increasing laceration.
His Power is called "Showstopper"
How would you rework him? Like, other than him not being a ranged killer, what would you change his power to be?
to stop people from spamming knives, I was thinking. higher requirement/lower ammo.
Nerf him down immediately, had a game barely start & someone went down in not even a minute. When it was my turn I can see why, absolutely no cooldown between his throw, if anything it's like he's gotten faster & it was already bad enough when then lowered the hit requirements from 8 to 6. Unless it used to be 10, I'm not sure anymore but the point is he needs a nerf as soon as possible.
I would proudly delete him without hesitating. And if that's not possible, I would nerf him so much that people don't wanna play him. 20 knives to down survivors let's go!
Change it so the recoil starts slow and increases the more knives you throw rather then reverse so console players can throw 3 knives without recoil screwing them up
That or just remove the recoil
Then maybe let him run at normal speed but that will probably be too much.
Honestly i'm happy with him now and wouldn't care if they never changed him anymore
I would just let the blades ricochet, 44 knifes and 6 knifes to down and the main event like Oni.
Base speed 115% he desperately need it.
