I love playing this killer, however, I'm aware that she isn't well liked. But is that universally true, any survivors who do like playing against her, or is it all hate?
What do you feel when you see an Artist?
Pretty sure Jeff's not a killer.
She is very fun to face. I feel like you can’t play against her the same way as most killers and she adds diversity. Even holding W, trying to dodge her shotguns is very fun to me. Can’t speak for everyone though :\
Really? Against a good artist, I feel like you can't really dodge her birds. You're practically forced to just hold W against her, and even though I love playing her, I despise going against her.
I feel like good Artists deserve the reward. It is possible to counter her birds at loops and such.
I suppose you can bait the birds and DH does counter it (well, by passing one bird).
But is she really fun to go against?
Boring as ####. Hold forward, look behind to make sure you don't get bird sniped, pre-drop a few pallets and that's about all you do against her. If you loop you're dead so it's all you can do, takes away a lot of the interaction and just puts me to sleep :/
Really don't enjoy facing her, didn't like playing her either. Haven't even got the DLC because everything is just so boring and the same as what we've got before. If I wanna play Artist then I might as well just play any of the other 115 anti-loop killers.
Not OP. Just dull.
She's not OP or anything but i find vsing her very dull because as you said, when playing against her for the most part you have to hold W
Me, in the process of making a concept that turns Jeff into a Killer: 😲
Anyways, yeah, Artist is really unfun to go against.
I hate her. I hate how she looks, I really hate how she sounds and all the constant hoarse cawing she does and I hate the fact that she's the new killer that the pre-nerf Freddy players flocked to. It's the same thing, spam power as much as possible and tunnel hooks the second someone gets rescued.
I've played a couple of games tonight with her, and some survivors just give up or kill themselves on the hook if they see me as the Artist.
I get it, she's incredibly anti-fun.. but I love playing as her, so I feel guilty playing her.. ;_;
if thats how you have fun, go for it. she's no more boring to me than pinhead/slinger/trickster/nemesis/etc. only one of the anti-loop no mobility squad i like facing is pyramid head but that's because i've put so much time into him that the interaction is back and i can return to actually running tiles. if they dont use their power creatively, they dont down me, and that forces both of us to actually react to each other and play in a more interactive way.
im sure its something similar with artist, and the other anti-loop killers, but holding w works better even against pyramid and im not putting in over 1k hours across 2 years into each of them just to be able to stand a chance at looping. w key is boring but it works so ill take the boredom.
dont feel guilty about playing what you find fun. unless it's, like, 2x range ruin/pain resonance/undying/tinkerer nurse with a midwich offering against solos, then feel free to feel remourse.
While I hate facing her, I won't dc or give up unless I'm on hook and my three teammates are hiding behind rocks across the map and not making any indication of doing gens or rescuing me.
You shouldn't feel bad for playing her. The devs made her to be played and you should enjoy her before her inevitable nerf comes. It's not like your opponents feel guilty for the perks they choose or the strong loops and tiles they run around or feel guilty sabotaging hooks or blinding you.
Could have fooled me with some of his cosmetics
I enjoy playing against her - but it feels like she gets wrecked a lot. I don't think I've seen an Artist get more than 2 kills when I play survivor, and I barely see her anymore.
Yeah I think it’s fun. It’s just me though.
She's really fun to go against. I love that she has different counterplay and dodging her birds are always fun.
You are one of my favorite forum members, but our opinions almost always seem to be different :/
and, shockingly, you and i manage to prove to the rest of this community that people can disagree with each other and still be friends.
She doesn't bother me honestly. Her power doesn't feel super oppressive and it's dodgeable. She can sorta guard hooks from a distance but you just have to remember to move away from hook before healing and you're good. Most of my good matches lately have been against Artists
Honestly very true! Having different opinions is how we can have conversations, just wish people can come to realize that their opinion isn’t the only thing that matters.
I try to sit on a gen, do a totem and maybe an unhook and just hope for the match to end quickly
Artist should be nerfed to play it safe.
Kind of boring as you just hold W to outplay her.
How is that different from most killers? Holding W is a decent strategy most of the time, you don't have to be against Artist to do it.
EZ BP then. Next match.
She's fine. Not the best but I don't hate her.
On a quick note, what's your opinion about Plague, Oni, Twins and Pinhead?
she is the only killer to click the survivors back.
