The Artist-Your Opinion So Far



  • crowbarmancrowbarman Member Posts: 466

    Not sure why this is - unless it's line of sight, you can just take a swarm that doesn't slow you down. And you can run into the crow now without damage. So just don't get hit in line of sight.

    Haven't unlocked/purchased.

    I dunno, I just haven't got the enthusiasm for this one. I expect I'll log in before the week is out.

    Mine was, this killer is a hook camping baby who always puts crows on hooked survivors constantly she is bot. You probably have your xbox turn itself off for eco mode LOL.

    I never said she needed nerfs. Haven’t played a lot of games against her yet, just saying I get where people are coming from. I think a nerf is likely, though. A lot of people seem upset.

    “You survivors”- I play both sides.

  • HannaciaHannacia Member Posts: 684

    People get upset when they can't instantly win. She isnt strong nor she is weak. I'd say she's kinda at the middle. I like playing her though but i don't care if i 4k every match

  • ShinobuSKShinobuSK Member Posts: 4,406

    Played 10 games against her and mostly escaped, havent seen her get more than 2k yet.

    Played one game with new survivor lvl 10 and got his adept, on new map against Oni.

    She looks annoying in some loops but in most maps she is fine, havent played her myself yet though.

    Also its too soon to say anything because people are still only learning how to play as or against her. Give it time

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 19,975

    And playing as anti-loop killers is also pallet pallet pallet pallet because hold w pre-drop.

  • Gamedozer7Gamedozer7 Member Posts: 2,007

    This at first it was fun because I wasn't any good with her and survivors would stay in the loop and I got chances to use her power and experiment and then survivors started holding w as soon as I set on crow to another loop rinse and repeat untell I down them or give up because I'm wasting time but no resources.

    Cool design

    Seems fun in theory

    W completely negates her power and makes her boring to play

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 4,800

    Now that I have played with her some more, I would argue she is definitely not op, but pretty damn strong.

    But yes I kind of also find it a shame that her more interesting and skillful playstyle, trying to hit survivors at range, seems much less viable than just chasing a survivor to a loop and then shutting that loop down. It would be great if they found a way to increase counterplay against her a bit at loops, and instead make her long range chase stronger. So that both playstyles are at least kind of equally powerful.

  • AkumakajiAkumakaji Member Posts: 2,347

    I had an awesome chase with her in Campbells Chapel. I chased a survivor outside of the Chapel and left a crow at the window, the surv went up the stairs, I followed and got in a hit. The surv then tried to loop me, went through the window and BAM! Dire Crow in the face, down. That was a thing of beauty and I had recovered from my strike just in time to send the crow flying. This wasnt the mindless "I will set down a crow here" shutdown that to many peeps complain about, but felt rightfully owned. I think this will be the skill ceiling with her, ie planning something like this in advance, noticing an opportunity during the heat of a chase etc.

  • ChordycepsChordyceps Member Posts: 993

    I have very mixed feelings on the artist.

    The positives:

    She's kinda an unparalleled intel gatherer with her crows being able to go across the entire map.

    She's one of the only killers who you could hypothetically down someone from the entire opposite side of the map. What good that would do you is debatable, but the fact that you can do it is wild.

    She can shut down most loops entirely with relative ease.

    The Negatives:

    Despite her power being able to span the entire map, she suffers on large maps. Hard. Survivors that know to run away when you set up your crows will make you suffer, cause while you're trying to be a big brain boy and spend a few seconds setting up the perfect trap, they've already ran well outside the crows damaging range.

    No mobility options. Which makes large maps a huge issues. You'd think her crows would circumvent this, but with how quickly survivors can dispell crows, you have to have galaxy brain reads and perfect timing to actually down swarmed survivors who have made distance on you.

    In conclusion: I don't know how I feel about the artist.

  • FuzzelsFuzzels Member Posts: 449

    She feels like a nurse situation. Stupidly oppressive and absolutely unfun to play against when she's played at a high level and good skill, but stupid easy to run for days when played at a low skill. Obviously she's still new so saying high skill isn't all that viable just yet, but even still. When she plays properly, the only real counter play is to run to the next loop, attempt to break LOS and stay hidden and that's only if you aren't dealing with a swarm. Not only that, but she's kind of bringing back vibes of old deathslinger and PH. She has what is essentially free zoning, and in some cases you either take a bird hit or an M1 hit with no counter available and she can just take placing a bird for absolutely free zoning. Also being a killer with a ranged ability and also being 115 seems wrong. Every other ranged killer is 110, so why is she any different? Doesn't seem fair. I get that she's only got lethal on long range attacks AFTER someone is swarmed, but even still. And there's still the fact that she can 100% shut down a loop just by placing a bird in a specific direction, and that bird WILL damage you without the swarm first as you're more than likely going to be close enough to its lethal hit range

  • FuzzelsFuzzels Member Posts: 449

    The recharge is based off how many birds you send. If you shoot all your birds, yeah the CD is way too long. If you want to land snipe hits, you need to send one bird to swarm, wait for the recharge, then attempt to snipe.

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 10,074
  • FuzzelsFuzzels Member Posts: 449

    Well to be fair, it would be really stupid if she could send out 3 birds, swarm 3 people, then shoot out 3 more birds, injuring or downing 3 people, all at once. Obviously the likelyhood of that happening would be incredibly slim, but it should never be a possibility at all. Even the idea of downing 2 people at once with a MAP WIDE range attack is silly. I feel like the set up she has right now is alright.

  • Nun_So_VileNun_So_Vile Member Posts: 593

    She will be the paradigm for all new killers moving forward.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 3,703

    Got her Adept on her 4th game. No PTB for me either.

    She's quite powerful with a good tracking game. Her 3 gen play is a lesser version of Doctor.

    No a bad killer...but doesn't have the lasting appeal of Pinhead and Nemesis.

  • blue4zionblue4zion Member Posts: 2,440

    2nd day in, I'm for sure starting to agree. Most of the time it feels like you can't do anything against it.

    I wanted this to be a case of learning to play against it, but it's truly just starting to feel rage inducing to face.

  • BadLooperQBadLooperQ Member Posts: 277

    My main grip with the artist is that sometimes I hold the Power Button and the line of sight of her Power either doesn't appear at all or takes a few seconds to load in... I play on PS4 btw and Idk if it's intended or not, does she need free space to use it?

  • unluckycombounluckycombo Member Posts: 582

    For me, boring to verse. Her power style is too similar to the other recent release Killers for me to be interested. I also don't enjoy her anatomy as it feels odd in multiple places (In ways that don't feel intentional and takes away from that uncanny look to me).

    Her perks are cool. Her map has a cool visual design. (Even if they went overboard on the ink.)

    But I think her map is too big, and at least when I versed her as a Survivor, she was pretty bland to verse. Her Survivor is serviceable at best and both of their stories didn't really do it for me. Definitely skipped on buying this chapter tbh.

    thats why this is called your opinion SO FAR- i want these first impressions

    From what I'm seeing, shift + w and simply treating her like a ranged killer at loops (baiting crows for starters) can work.

    This really is just "new killer, can't adapt, nerf now" at work.

    On a side note, if her 1v1 gets nerfed, she needs a secondary ability or buff. She is almost solely anti-loop with her most unique mechanic being able to snipe people (which I sincerely doubt was intended by the devs, it's super great and fun but the DBD devs surely didn't plan for her to be able to do that). Sniping needs to be easier or she needs another ability.

    I definitely won't buy this killer if they nerf her with nothing substantial in return. Quite sick of 1v1 killers with nothing else to them, it makes their powers shallow and one-note, something that is quite typical amongst the DBD devs.

  • Lochnload_exeLochnload_exe Member Posts: 1,255

    the first killer release I don't have a single complaint about in the last 4 releases. She feels perfect to me, genuinely impressed, and they even did the most important change I wanted from PTB
