    They aren't for me, and they aren't for many others

    You forgot one thing: suiciding on 1st hook. U will never be able to punish survivors cuz devs will never punish suiciding on hook.

    So killers are at fault for not facing things they don't feel like they can handle, and are also at fault for taking precautions against things they don't feel like they can handle. Simultaneously, survivors are completely justified in DCing against things they don't feel like they can handle.

    No double standard here, no sir.

    At least you bought the team however long it took to put you on the hook, which is slightly more than the team would get from you DCing.

    There's a huge difference in dcing against a moonwalk exploiting Legion and versing a group comp you may not like. The former has absolutely no counter and the latter actually has things you can do to counter.

    Scroll up, that person was complaining about legitimate play (use of add-ons).

    There's literally no difference between killing yourself on hook and disconnecting.

    I have only experienced full team disconnects a few times, but not for Legion, but for Clown, Wraith, etc.

    Still, I never disconnect from Legion, despite the meager chances of me being able to escape them, because to me disconnecting is a bad thing. Of course there is a rare chance that when a single person disconnects, they had a good reason too, like for me once, I had to get off to help someone in real life.

    When more than one person disconnects, I know that something is up. I also hate when killers disconnects, wastes time and really good offerings I gave up for the game. I wish that offering could be returned if wasted. If people disconnects in the middle of a game, the gen count should automatically go down by one unless there was one more gen left.

    No it is not fun for me to stay in the corner while survivors click their flashlights, I will dc. Very straight forward. Find new game where I might have fun. Not playing is not fun.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 11,721

    That has no bearing on the conversation. You said it was not OK for killers to dodge when they don't think they can win, and implied it was not OK for them to bring in add-ons to deal with those situations. You also implied that it was OK for survivors to DC when killers brought in add-ons they couldn't deal with.

    Either it's OK for killers to dodge and to bring in whatever they have to deal with tough situations, or it's not OK for survivors to DC when they're faced with something they can't deal with. You can't have it both ways.

    I play Legion because I’m fed up with the balance issues and I use the DCing to my advantage.

    See, my philosophy is, “If I’m not allowed to play the game, then neither are the Survivors.”

  • paint1210paint1210 Member Posts: 79

    My suggestion

    Let dev change system cannot esc from game and not allow to struggle in hook stage 1 and automatically space in stage 2 hook.

    Questions settle

  • Claudette_BaguetteClaudette_Baguette Member Posts: 288

    To be honest Legion is not that good. Even with mixtape it takes a decent amount of time to down someone, much longer than a competent nurse does. Also, don't forget that survivor's don't need to heal against legion so they save a lot of time they can spend on repairing gens.

  • artistartist Member Posts: 1,490

    person 1: I dont like legion so I dc. he's broken and unfun

    person 2: *lays out counters to legion, as if it'll change anything, while completely ignoring why people don't like him*

    me: \(-_-)/

  • Claudette_BaguetteClaudette_Baguette Member Posts: 288

    Legion NEEDS a rework. However, if people just DC against them all the time it's just unfun for everyone.

  • GorgoniaGorgonia Member Posts: 1,088

    Try playing a less sweaty Legion and people won’t dc. Not saying you do but I changed my build into something average and I can still have fun and let the others have fun as well. Legion is annoying as hell to play against if they are all tuned up

  • mintmint Member Posts: 29

    Even after equipping iron maiden and haunting ground.. people still DC. No ruin.. no M&A. It's kind of annoying. I paid for the DLC i should be able to use it :(

  • mintmint Member Posts: 29

    The funny thing is... when all 4 survivors stay.. all the gens end up getting done pretty darn quick. Some survivors might go the whole match without even interacting with me

  • altruisticaltruistic Member Posts: 988

    I’ve played 20 hours the past two weeks. This is the most consistent I’ve played DBD since December. (I started playing in beta, and always stuck around.)

    I don’t care about the balance, imbalance or whatever. I just casually play the game these days.

    I played against a Legion today, and granted I haven’t played him much but.. Wtf? It is such an unfun experience.

    I wanted the match to end so badly. You have to hope you don’t get seen, period. Which in a real game will almost never happen. If you’re seen, there seems to be no juke potential?

    I finished out the game and then logged off and played something else. I wasn’t even mad, maybe a bit disappointed. I remember why I stopped playing so much when they first came out.

    I haven't needed to do the "no look" cheese since the PTB. And MOST of the legions I play against don't do it. Not since we figured out that putting a CD add-on on feral frenzy is far, far more effective.

    No look cheesing makes a chase last way, way to long. You can do it, sure. But you are losing at least 1 gen (if you are lucky, remember that people genrush legion hard)

    It's actually funny. Legion isn't actually a strong killer, unless you perk him right (read: perked to your style, there isn't a one true setup but I favor a gen protector build), and know how to apply map pressure. But people act like he's the nurse (but for some reason they are ok with he nurse... Who ignores walls... And floors... And not legion who...Jumps windows and pallets, unless smacked with a pallet, and takes 4 hits of his power to down which will stun him twice, base)

    Let's be honest. Content Creators made this problem. This is an opinion based on feeling, and not facts. Peoples favorite creators hate on legion and actively D/C when they see them, and their followers start doing the same. Those people meet at least 3 others per match that see this happen, and start to do it. And it spreads. As the games get worse and worse, more and more people join the hate.

    What changes could be made so the LEgion would ACTUALLY be fun to play against? And still make him fun to play with?

    Legion is just poorly designed, anyone who played survivor can confirm that vaulting and running is very easy; now, the only thing different with Legion is that you have to hit... *Drum Rolls* M1 while vaulting and running! Don't you see the problem??? There's no skill involved in those actions and you'll get the same results with Legion everytime because his power is too straightforward, there's nothing that separates a good Legion from a bad one besides sensitivity.

    Another thing, I've played against a Frank's Legion and it was awful because I simply didn't feel like I was outplayed at all. If I get downed by a Nurse, I accept that because it took skill to land that blink while on the other hand, using Frenzy does not. Legion just needs a rework, his power doesn't have a learning curve to it and it doesn't reward players who spend hours on him because his power is too straightforward.
