Scream. Now most of you all hate it. I have never seen so many complaints of a kiler before yet, the community banged on about wanting Scream.Expectations to reality folks.
We hate it because the killer's power is pointless.
The power equals the movie after all is what it is based on...it was never ever going to be good but eh.
He should of calld up and tormeted virgins....i feel spiderman is ghost face....
I have no clue why you feel the need to hate on Scream. It literally revitalized the horror genre with it's satire and clever plot. The only thing to hate about Scream is the fact that it spawned the garbage series that is Scary Movie.
@Brickolas You said no reason to hate on scream, yet you have hated on scream is it spawned the garbage series, still hating....i have never said hate.....but people wanted this character and now moaning about it....
@Brickolas - I think you hit the nail on the head with the word satire. It mocked the formula many horror fans enjoy.
I like him even in game but they need to fix him. It is in their interest to sell him because of the license anyway. Before any of you jump in to say how other licensed killers are weak, they weren't unviable when they first got out at least right? But even if he is fixed they could nerf him again unfortunately, so people should expect that.
Because it's not Scream. No map or survivor. All we got was the Ghostface mask and a massively underpowered killer.
I didn't care for Scream or having the license; I heard what the power was and saw the design during the intial leak and was underwhelmed - it felt unoriginal in the context of DBD. But it did sound fun, I guess. In a memey way.
In the end, the way the power is intended to work is great, on paper. But it seems so buggy, and isn't usable except on potatoes. And that is not how you want your balancing.
Hell, even if you can physically see someone through corn, he can't even stalk them, yet people can cancel his power completely by looking in his general direction without any knowledge that he's there?
Plus the survivors get a very obvious audio notification when he begins to use his power, making them look around them if, you guessed it, they're not potatoes. It's too easy to counter. It's a case of handholding survivors with information VS a STEALTH killer in this scenario
How could they make him strong? Everyone knew that he’d be weak but you all wanted him!
@TreemanXD I mean with his power he certainly could be 'strong', in a similar way that Myers can be, although if done right, easily better while still being pretty balanced. But the fact is that as of right now, he's too easy to counter with spoonfed information on his actions.
Ghostface will be out 2 years then they'll re-work him like they did Freddy?
Oh wait, he'll probably get nerfed first like Freddy did too because "OMG GHOSTFACE IS OP SOMEHOW!".
What we wanted: An iconic character in a game with several others already in it
What we got: Sort of that but he's garbage if you actually want to win
It was worse when Legion got nerfed.
Well i mean he's [BAD WORD] OP when basement camping but yeah he needs to have his abilities fixed.
Legion isn’t nerfed. They had to hardline him to stop all of the unintended exploitation they never foreseen the legion player base adopting.
Now legion players HAVE to use the power as intended to get the INTENDED benefit of FF: applying DW to as many survivors as possible to buy gen control time and/or render teammates temporarily unable to assist each other (because they cannot ignore DW and must mend) before singling out an individual target.
Players complaining about legions new (intended) state are probably the same players that think Freddys current state is weak: because they play killer with limited tunnel vision.
Ahh i feel the love flow with the down votes :) we all new ghost face was going to not be as strong but well here we are - again and when he gets buffed - it still wont be good enough - again. So well, just get use to things i guess.
Im rank 3 with Legion and i have no problem getting 4k, when i say nerf, im talking about the stun duration, if u miss, you get stunned and the vault speed. I dont care about the other changes, actually, i like how it is right now.
All im saying is that legion had more complaints than ghostface, im not trying to start a legion thread because its usseless to give my opinion for the devs.
And btw, i think i play fair, I am one of those who say "Do not do to others what you would not want done to you".
Oh come on, you know that this isn't what they asked for.
No one is asking to see their favorite slasher get gutted.
No it isn't what i meant, a lot wanted scream and now it's happened there are a lot of threads with people not happy. Really? how else was this going to go? when most have complained about the killers since Spirit. They should of given the costume to The Legion and then this wouldn't of happened.
@Mushwin - Good point. Now they have the Ghostface mask, there is nothing stopping them adding it as a Legion cosmetic too. I'd quite like it on Nea or Dwight aswell.
@JawsIsTheNextKiller exactly, just give the costume to the legion as it is a good cosmetic and let's us all pretend scream never happened
I can't really blame them for having to face the easiest Power counter thus far.
Not really the wraith would he better than him because hook survivor can just keep looking at him
My quote is "if your friends unhook you in my face they don't care about your life and neither do I, you are going back down"
just becaus we ask for a character included, doesn't mean we aren't allowed to critizice the implementation.
"a lot wanted scream and now it's happened"
Did it, though? They didn't get the Scream license, so nothing from the actual Scream franchise was implemented outside of the mask (which is a separate copyright).
This isn't based on the movies. They didn't license the movie just the Fun World mask which was made a year before the first movie. So from that standpoint you're just factually wrong about something you can just easily look up.
With that out of the way, lets talk about what we did get. We got a killer whose power isn't actually something he has much control over as survivors do his power better than he does. That is insane. Survivors are better at counter stalking Ghostface out of his power by nature of being in 3rd person view. They don't even have to commit to looking at him for a real length of time.
People are going to complain when you give them something with a promise of being fun AND powerful, but instead they lack both fun and power.
@TAG You know what i mean, ghost face/scream..
The devs could have at least designed a power that isn't shite.
