Why are they considered broken? For clown ,you have to aim the bottle directionally at the survivor and huntress has only one shot and still needs to aim it. I never could understand that with both perks that reward ######### up and being able to heal in the span of 2 seconds why is instadown stuff for killer considered broken?
nerfing a c tier killer with no conpensation is really balanced,yes.
its 4 to 2
Hitting a survivor directly with a bottle was easy, you only had to sitck to his back and throwing the bottle, of course you can miss, but you had 4 tries, now you have 2 and this is good, pinky fingers was the most busted instadown addon after huntress iri heads. There are still busted addons like some of Myers ones, but at least Myers is by far one of the weakest killers in the game.
The point is they need to aim in order for it to even work and for huntress Having only 1 ax is not busted at all. Yes, there are times where the killer gets them at point-blank range but nerfing the addons is not the way to do it since those are situational issues rather than the perk being broken especially when it seems it's more of a sense the survivor got outplayed rather than it being easy mode.
Same with NOED, Yes instadown perks and add-ons can be a problem for some people but unlike other issues the game has, these are lower on the bar than what needs to be fixed.
This. I never used those addons, so I don't care. Wasn't good for the game anyways.
Do you think they care? This is one of the most toxic games I've ever played.
Late for the party here.
What's going on with Clown and Leatherface?
Clown is having two add-ons nerfed (I think it's Flask of Bleach, from 5% to 4% bonus hindered; and Redhead's Pinky Finger, which now reduces bottle count by 2) in return for 2 buffs (can't remember these).
Leatherface is having the collectable faces removed, and half the community had a meltdown at the news and has yet to recover.
I'm not mad about the Pink Finger nerf personally, because I never use it because I can't consistently hit people directly to save my life. (I am mad about the Bleach buff, though.) But Clown isn't a high-tier or popular character, and while I can understand why they nerfed Spirit (I don't like it, but I understand), this seems completely undeserved to just randomly take away one of the only addons that (other people think) makes him viable.
Clown's Pinky Finger nerf was probably because the add-on is pretty easy to use, so they wanted it to have some sort of downside -- it is the same logic as Iridescent Head, though applied to an add-on on a Killer that is objectively less powerful than Huntress. I do not mind the nerf, Clown didn't live off of Pinky Finger so this won't effect things at all IMO.
I do find it really funny that people are moaning about Leatherface's masks being removed, though. Sure, you can argue that the Dwight and Meg masks did not need to be removed, but Claudette's mask and, to an extent, Jake's mask needed to go given people started using them to be raging racists towards ethnic minorities, and BHVR simply chose to do away with all of them.
Oh and to the people moaning about how they "earned" these add-ons and Leatherface masks: Cope. Seriously, you got those by just playing, you did not perform some extraordinary feat to get any of the things that are being removed or nerfed this patch and the fact you are trying to upset as many people as possible while you still can just proves how shallow you really are.
I never saw a point in grinding those, anyway. I thought they looked stupid and figured it'd be a waste of time. Now I'm getting 6000 shards for free.
Lol. You can still run the add on and have the same amount of bottles. If you need more then 4 to hit a bottle. I don't know what to tell you
All the clowns I saw who used pinky finger just ran up until it was near impossible to miss so they got an easy down so a reduction to bottles won't be much of a change.
I'll would sooner not play the game instead.
All playing in a way that ruins the fun for survivors has done in the past is get needless nerfs done to Killers we enjoy playing. If you are not enjoying the game speak more with your time and wallet. Also boycotts don't work in Killers favor.
