Do you think Blight is fun to VS? (go againts)

I think his base kit is fun. He is one of the best designed Killers. But still somehow these days I find it VS him more boring than fun. It might be because of a) offten see best add-ons (ring + speed add-ons) that makes him in my opinion too good / low counterplay, b) too offten seen in my games, c) top meta builds on him are boring to VS (tinkerer + ruin + undying + etc.)

    Chases against him are almost always fun because you actually gotta do something other than holding W. He's very fair in chase while still being strong in chase. Not to mention his mobility makes him practically everywhere on the map.

    You can use this same exact reasoning for Billy, other than the "strong in chase" part and the "almost" part because his chase is only decent in comparison to Blight and he's always fun to go against no matter what. Ruindying + Tinkerer and Alchemist's simply make Blight annoying to go against.

    Out of all 4 killers I ever see past few months, he is the most fun to go against.

    Too bad MMR killed variety otherwise he would be considered fun to go against by way more people than he does now. But theres only so much fun you can have when you go against same few killers over and over.

    I find him fun. I have gone up against some really good blights that were ttvs. I often lost but the matches were still fun to me

    Blight is fun to go against, even with Ruin+Undying and Tinkerer

  • ImBrakingBikeImBrakingBike Member Posts: 454

    I do actually. Especially when they have some weird build you didn't expect.

    He's the best well designed the killer in the game has a lot of counter play and even his Techs can be countered by just leaving the loop. I wish I get more blights in my matches.

    Hes only fun when the killer knows what they are doing otherwise most of the time its a sloppy joe that keeps missing their lunges

    This isn't true its quite hilarious to watch a newbie run in to the same corner 3 times in a row or Just fly right past you.

    Guess I'll be the one to go against the grain here. I do not enjoy playing vs. Blight. His mobility combined with certain builds make it very difficult to survive in solo queue. Plus his lunge while rushing has some crazy reach. So many times I've thought I managed to dodge his attack, yet his hitbox still barely manages to clip me. A good Blight makes quite a powerful opponent.

    Were it not for the anomaly that is Nurse, he would be the strongest Killer in the game without question.

    I do. I'm not one of those who only likes going against Blight when he's running a bad build, he's always fun to me.

  • SludgeSludge Member Posts: 508

    No he's not fun to play against. After the first hook he instantly starts another chase, downs them in 5 seconds, then starts another chase.

    SoloQ you can't even touch a generator because everyone is constantly on the floor, it's almost as bad as a Nurse game.

    As Blight main, it always brings fun and pleasure to play against him and test his limits. I dont care about his perks, its not what makes blight a beast

    He's a blast to go against when he's not using that busted build you mentioned. His basekit is 100% fine.

    I absolutely despise Blight and wish he were removed from the game. No, not joking. No, I don't care how balanced you think he is. I hate him.

  • CashelP14CashelP14 Member Posts: 5,277

    I find Blight fun to vs in swf, but not in solo q. I enjoy chases vs him, even with his busted add-ons but solo q survivors being your teammates is just annoying. He's too good in chase and his mobility makes short chases just extremely frustrating.

  • PepsidotPepsidot Member Posts: 1,288

    He's definitely one of the most fun meta killers to face. I don't mind Blight's running blighted crow. However if their good and use alchemist ring/insta down + blighted crow then he suddenly becomes one of the most boring killers to face.

  • MewMew Member Posts: 1,667

    yes and no, i agree 100% with OP.

    basekit is fun, but most blights i go against dont use base kit blight lmfao.

    also- i dont really mind ruin/undying/tinkerer, as long as they dont have speed/ring im fine with him.

  • SepexSepex Member Posts: 977

    Meta makes him a predictable bore, I can see fun in playing against if it's not a sweaty Iri1.

  • AltarfAltarf Member Posts: 1,043

    I just find him boring. Blight to me is overrated in every way - in fun, in strength, in counterplay, in good design, in potential, etc. Blights I play against rarely win if I have a decent team unless they're an exploiting Blight, or have the full Ring+Crow+Ruin Undying Tinkerer build. He's also very boring and simple to go against in a chase. A lot of the time, you can entirely counter him by just going behind an object, and then reposition when he rushes past you or cancels his power. Unless he's got 180 degree 72838371 DPI flicks, that's where his power falls apart, and it's a very boring style of counterplay.

    I realise this is an uncommon opinion and I don't expect many people to agree, but he's just really overrated in my opinion. Even with her being weakened now, I still think a good Spirit outperforms a non-exploiting Blight.

    Without that broken build on him I'd say he's one of the very few fun killers to verse.

  • bm33bm33 Member Posts: 5,977

    I do unless it's one of those really good Blights that ends the game quickly. It's a bummer when you get a killer you enjoy playing against but the match ends quickly because they're so good and able to just kill everyone like it's nothing.

  • Mister_xDMister_xD Member Posts: 7,217

    i think that depends a lot on his build.

    basekit Blight is definitely fun, but a sweatlord Blight with Alchemist Ring and Ruin Undying Tinkerer BBQ is extremely boring IMO.

    same goes when they start abusing exploits (dunno if there currently are any on him, but back when there were i got extremely annoyed / bored when they started abusing them)

  • BlackRabiesBlackRabies Member Posts: 486

    With those 3 perks on he immediately switches from fun to frustrating sweat lord.

  • SluzzySluzzy Member Posts: 2,699

    Not at all. Every blight uses the killer meta and exploits high mouse DPI settings so there is no counterplay.

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 18,646

    Base blight I love. Very fun killer to face and I wish we had more.

    It's only when you start adding in Ruin, Undying, Tinkerer, Alch Ring, Blighted Crow, and/or exploits that his counterplay vanishes into thin air, solos become screwed the second they load in, and nothing is good in the world.
