I’m glad they added a buffer and increased the detection time AND no longer regress the stalk meter
They buffed a killer?
Detection perks will still make stalking impossible...
Wait, so what exactly did they change?
Here are all the changes: https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/discussion/68260/
Idk, good direction they are going but for some reason I still think he gonna get mowed down by these SWF on voice coms, detection perks etc. 1 second to 1.5 isn't that much of a jump, but I guess we should try and see results from there.
I'm fairly content with what the wrote up. Stalk progress not regressing is def how it should be. I like the Quality of Life changes it seems they're giving him.
My only wish if Survivors still should character face Ghost Face to break the Stalk instead of center of camera.
No one should deny that this makes him better than the PTB version.
@HeHeBoii He has options now at least.
And ninja spotters are going to get revealed by the killer instinct web. (Legions reveal power)
Big change there that people aren't noticing
I love the changes, my only hope is that they touch up on his perks. His perks are some of the worst perks I have ever seen, and it wouldn't be that hard for them to be fixed.
A good start. Still should do something about Slugs and Hooked Survivors revealing him though.
And his perks are all still garbage.
Not satisfied. They should completely remove that stupid mechanic.
*Screenshot for not to misleading*
Object and spin chill will totally destroy him
I'm very pleased with the changes. Sounds a heck of a lot better than how he previously was in the ptb.
Are the changes better than nothing? Yes. Do these changes make him playable? Yes. Do these changes make him viable at all tiers of play? No.
Well he will still just be a ######### myers. I probably wont but it. There changes didnt say anything about object of obsession or i just didnt see it. I want him to be top tier or actually good. As i thought, hes just the leatherface to a billy no matter what and he needs more than just tweaks. Unless they promise to make him actually viable... most likely will not purchase. Very disappointed. I am glad they fixed the main parts however thats probs all they are going to do to him.
Well idk how long the buffer is but it’s 1.5 seconds plus buffer so I hope it stays enough to make it decent
It actually gives him a play style now, instead of having no power he has one
object of obsession trolls gonna destroy him at launch. guess we still have to play nurse to punish them.
Definitely no buy for me. Until they make another Billy or Nurse, I'm not buying anything with cash. Shards or nothing
I am personally pleased with these changes/buffs, they were extremely needed and really make him less bad than freddy in my opinion, my only concern is downed and hooked survivors, if they still detect you or not and also detection perks, these are my only concerns, overall, i am pleased and will try the new Ghostface tomorrow.
About 0.3 seconds.
So basically the way it works now:
So basically the buffer just stops you from accidentally revealing him while you pan your camera around, but it's effectively 1.8 seconds total.
@Peanits so he can sort of work?? Buff him in corn, and he might be a solid mid tier killer tbh.
@Peanits Any hope of detection perk immunity while in night shroud so you can't constantly OoO/spine chill him to deny stalks?
These will be super frustrating on the 18th.
Buffed his crouch speed, meanwhile pig still slow.
Why fix what aint making money anymore right?
@YearOfThePigNerf I mean...3.0.0 pig will be making money via new cosmetics so that isn't why...
not really an excuse 😂 every killer has a power. He still even has a poop ability when you compare it to myers who you cant take out of his ability, you can expose multiple survivors, Has more strategy, faster, doesnt need to be stealthy all game. GUYS I WILL SAY THIS 1000 MORE TIMES IF I HAVE TO! I PRESENT TO YOU: LOCKER TELEPORT! This would be another ability on top of his night shroud. When a locker is within 24-16 meters of him, he can teleport inside of it. If the locker is occupied then it wouldnt show an aura however if it is not occupied then it would show a yellow aura. This shows you can teleport inside. While in a locker you can perk out of it to stalk survivors. Not only that but jumpscare out of it once they are exposed. This gives him map pressure and makes him his own character instead of just being ######### myers. He would be more viable in high ranks because the survivors would have to be more alert. This also fits into the games lore and the character bc he is a stealthy boy. If you agree this would be a good change, please share and upvote.
His crouch speed post-buff is still slower than the pig's crouch speed.
These all seem like good changes, but I think the weakness to detection perks can still be an issue. Still, getting to see the changes in the PTB first will be nice.
Well you do you, man. I've been dead set on buying him since day 1, and these changes only make me want it more. They fix practically every issue he had, yet people still complain...this community (Eye roll)
