We don't need any more of these. It's just annoying to see. No one had an issue with knowing whether they were stunned or not. It's annoying as hell, make it toggable or something. I really don't wanna see multiple red flashes a game.
I agree. It’s completely unnecessary and makes playing killer not enjoyable. Please remove it.
Who asked for the stuff in the first place?
Yes please remove it. It's unnecessary and looks to be very annoying
The only way I could see this being a thing is to help those who may have a disability, but the camera shift should be enough. Either way I hope they just remove this or give it a toggle. Cuz I don't wanna see it. It gives me a headache. Have the same issue with the new Legion VFX. It's actually painful.
@Condorloco_26 Literally no one. I've never ever seen a suggestion for a stun-related effect in all my time with DbD.
Yeah they do stuff like this that no one ever asked, and yet ignore the colorblind issues that have been brought a thousand times on Steam, Reddit and this forum.
I tried the PTB and it gave me nausea, can this new effect be removed please? @Peanits It makes me quite sick like motion sickness or something
It was worse in the last PTB and a lot of people complained (including me). The effect is now less prominent but still very annoying and unnecessary. I hope the devs remove this effect completely.
Yes, that should not be implemented. Red is such an important colour for killers. Scratchmarks, blood, P3 Claudettes. This all is red. Adding another red stun VFX would just mean that killers get even more blind. Combine that with the sound nerfs we received months ago, and survivors dont even need flashlights to disappear at pallets anymore.
Please don't implement this stun VFX. Getting stunned is already unpleasant.
I haven’t even played the PTB (only watched videos of it), and the red stun effect is already really annoying.
Omg I'm glad I didn't try it, it would have been bad for me
Yeah, it's just annoying
And by looking at videos (I can't access the PTB myself) it's already giving me a headache
Someone explain me this vfx plz if you would
It should be much more subtle and not that extreme how it is now. Maybe just in the outlines of the screen and not that flashy
I prefer this VFX version to the one that was implemented in the initial PTB - that one gave me a headache very quickly. This one didn't affect my eyes at all and I was a lot more comfortable with it after a few matches.
I am not fully sure of why it was implemented I am presuming that it was felt an extra visual cue was needed for newer players to show the different stuns in the game etc. (purely my own thoughts on this)
Give us at least ability to enable this or disable.
An "Option" would be really nice
Like turn red stun on and off?
When no one really knows or has an idea why it could've been implented, maybe that means no one really needs it.
Honestly out of everything in the PTB this is something I'm not willing to compromise on at all. Absolutely no one asked for this and I can't understand why this is necessary. Every part of the game doesn't need a special effect tied to it. After a while it gets obnoxious.
Yes I know it was toned down but it's still annoying and I really don't understand why this was necessary at all. I don't see it necessary to have an "OPTION" for this either just get rid of the VFX.
Adding features that increase the usability for people with disabilities has never been a priority for the development team.
That's all I want is a disable. Yea it's been toned down, but no one said tone down, they said remove. No one asked for this. We keep hearing the devs are listening to the community, but when there's an outcry there's nothing. Even toned down it's super distracting and makes me sick. Which is odd, DBD is the ONLY game I've ever gotten a headache from on the VFX. The FOV doesn't bother me, the sounds, lights, nothing. The red flare/black hole from Legion does.
Devs please, just make it toggable. This would save ALL of the trouble of removing/implementing it. That way if we don't want it, we can remove it, and people who don't care/want it can keep it. Though no one really wants it so again not sure why it's needed. There's enough hand holding in this game, and there was 0 reason for more here.
Talked to a bunch of friends across servers, and many of them agreed that it gives them headaches. Some are saying it's old flashlight blinds all over again. Even the new one didn't fix the issue.
I suffer from migraines and I'm very concerned about not being able to play the game if the the VFX remains. It's utterly pointless. Please remove it.
"Oh no, I'm holding W, my camera is moving out of control, and I can't move, but I'm still not sure if I'm stunned. I wish there was a bright flashing epilepsy and migraine trigger to tell me if I was stunned or not."- Nobody
@not_Queen is there a reason this was added in the first place?
Agreed. Can definitely do without it. Headache inducing, unnecessary, and excessive.
Maybe if newer players need help understanding the different stuns, the devs should expand the tutorial. New players won't be new for long, so each will quickly outgrow any need for the extra visual cue, but that VFX will continue to be in the game causing problems for everyone playing killer.
