Vintage Freddy/Freddy Rework

edited July 2019 in General Discussions

Way way WAY back in September-ish of last year when Freddy was announced to be the next killer that was getting reworked/add-on passed, I spent two weeks getting him to P3 lvl50, and then getting every single perk on him.

Ever since, I've played a lot of Freddy and gotten used to his playstyle, which is actually very good when executed correctly. I feel as if he got a ton of slack when he came out due to him having to wait to hit survivors. That was it. Only because his power made him wait a minimum of 7 seconds to hit the survivor, he was immediately proclaimed the worst Killer.

I genuinely enjoy playing Freddy as he is now, even though his power has a few kinks, and no matter what the rework is I'd probably enjoy still playing Freddy just because how iconic he is.

My main point here is that if Freddy's power is going to be reworked from the ground up, I'd really appreciate it if I could have some sort of thing as recognition for playing the old Freddy.

A legacy-esque Freddy cosmetic? Perhaps not specifically Legacy Freddy, but something similar. I understand this would require permission from Planitum Dunes and Michael Bay, but it'd be worth it IMO. I want them old Freddy bragging rights. I was there! Remember the Old Freddy!

TL;DR, people who played old Freddy should get cosmetic rewards or something similar.

    Look, I get it, playing Freddy is a chore, he's arguably the worst killer in the game, but... I don't think the devs would be willing to make free cosmetics for a licensed character just because you asked for it.

    well...if they're also visually upgrading him (which they should), then you could technically see the old version of Freddy as a skin perhaps.

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    @Acromio That's not the point, and that's pretty minimalist. I'm not asking for free cosmetics. I'm asking for something to show that I played the Old Freddy™.

    From what I understand, he's being completely reworked, and I put in bloodpoints, sweat, and many hours into current Freddy.

    Whether it be cosmetic or not, I just want to show that I played Freddy before the rework.

    Agreed. I know they're not bringing BACK Legacy but they could ADD a Legacy skin for Freddy. Especially since he's being redone from the ground up, so it seems.

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,214

    Honestly, Legacy Freddy would look neat

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    @Hoodedfengm1n yeah, imagine a glowing Freddy chasing after you.

    Or, better yet, flaming Freddy.

    I like the idea of something for the P3 L170+ Freddy! Although I will be sad to see him go... I've really enjoyed him as he is...

    Farewell Fredward!!!!

    @Supernaut Shard Hand Joe will be forever changed...

  • TheBeanTheBean Member Posts: 2,320

    Well they are bringing in a charm thingie... so they could add in some special charm which probably wouldn't effect any sort of license.

  • bkillercbkillerc Member Posts: 142

    Should buff QOL current Freddy and release another version

  • HoodiedHoodied Member Posts: 12,214

    @Peanits But we want other people to know that we were around during the sad boi hour

  • BBQnDemogorgonBBQnDemogorgon Member Posts: 3,592

    @Peanits If you're on the stream you need to publicly apologize for that cringe comment.

    This just feels like such heavy entitlement, and this comes from someone else who also has P3 50 Freddy with every single perk unlocked. A legacy time reward because you chose to play the previous version of Freddy? It seriously sounds like a joke. You didn't do anything to deserve a reward.

  • SpirezSpirez Member Posts: 663

    Just let them know before the game starts and send them a friendly message. “ I was around before Freddy rework”

  • SupernautSupernaut Member Posts: 1,353

    @Peanits, Freddy may not belong to you, but a whole bunch of sweet blood points do! Memories fade, blood points are forever!

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    @Peanits If not cosmetics, could there be something else?

  • pemberleypemberley Member Posts: 1,510

    I play Freddy regularly as my main, got a lot of perks and add ons for him but I haven’t prestiged him. Does that rescind my Sharp Hand Joe membership card?

  • RoKruegerRoKrueger Member Posts: 1,371

    What if we don't want a rework? How could we keep the good old we learned to love?

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    @pemberley all Fredward Scissorhand mains are recognized as such! We must stick together!

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    @Blueberry really? Putting millions of bloodpoints into Freddy, playing him for hundreds of hours, and learning him so well that I can 4k more reliably with him than with most other killers?

    I think that's deserving of something. I'm only using legacy as an example.

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 8,948

    So should we give out rewards every single time there's a killer rework to every single player that got that killer P3 50? No, that would be ridiculous. Your reward was the bloody clothes and having all the perks unlocked. Should we be giving the rewards based on "learning him so well that I can 4k more reliably with him than with most other killers"? How are we going to measure that? Are you wanting them to go into there system to collect data to know which players play him well enough to deserve and which don't? You must realize how absurd this whole idea sounds.

    I've put hundreds of hours at rank 1 on Freddy as well and that doesn't entitle me to any "reward" just because they're reworking him.

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    @Blueberry Okay, given your same logic, why did players deserve legacy after they reworked the bloodweb? They were just "playing the game".

    This is just like legacy. They are completely reworking Freddy. He is going to be completely different.

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 8,948

    Legacy was a completely different scenario. That was when the bloodweb was built to take way, way longer to traverse through and it was so that all those bloodpoints they put into it before the easier to level version came out weren't wasted.

    None of the bloodpoints you have put into Freddy are being wasted. You are keeping all of your perks, bloody clothes and offerings. That's the difference.

    Also, after this update it's only changing how Freddy plays, it's not making his leveling up process any longer or shorter than it is now.

  • AntiJellyAntiJelly Member Posts: 1,107

    Just had the best idea: If we did get a vintage Freddy player cosmetic, It should be a Freddy who's on fire, as it fits with the end of the 2010 remake. He's lit on fire and we don't see him again.

  • Birthday_BoyBirthday_Boy Member Posts: 15

    Just put on your steam profile "I was a Freddy main before it was cool to be a Freddy main" so all the survivors who come to leave a -rep know you are the OG real deal.

    Sorry, Xbox player here. No can do.

    And also, why would anyone do that? That makes you sound pretentious.

    EDIT: typo.

    You're here asking for cosmetics that shows you played a lot of pre rework Freddy so you can get recognition and to get "them old Freddy bragging right" and youre calling other stuff pretentious. 200 IQ dude.
