you don't have to learn mindgames because nothing about spirit is a mindgame
stand still and look at what the survivor is doing, react and phase, then use sound to track
you aren't mindgaming the survivor because they have no idea what you're doing. they have no tell. you're making them guess and hope you screw up (which you won't, if you have a good set of headphones)
spirit isn't hard at all, and she's made worse by busted purple addons
i'm going to get an aneurysm from the amount of people who think spirit has anything to do with mindgames
if you want a killer who actually has to do with mindgames try huntress
This. Just @Poweas's profile picture scares me. *shivers*
@miaasma all wrong. Standing still and tracking them like that almost never works. They usually run to a window and then you have to waste your phase going around. Although, yeah she's not much of a mindgamer, she can create guessing games, where you have to try to predict the other side.
She's hard as hell at base (how I play her) since one missed phase can spell a defeat. And that's no exaggeration. But you're right about the mindgame bit, I should have said guessing game since she can create them to make all loops unsafe.
But no, she's not easy. You faced bad survivors.
Also with Huntress, I actually happen to main her, I don't speak about it much, but she's one of my favourite killers.
I only hate Prayer Bead Spirit. It's fun to use when I'm her, but it's never fun to go against.
i faced survivors i knew weren't bad
the thing about spirit is that survivors have no input in interactions with her. ergo, survivor skill doesn't matter. you do equally well against good and bad survivors
once you understand how her mechanics work and how she's best played (phasing short distances mid chase and playing with your ears) she's piss easy, and there's a reason most spirit mains are potatoes on every other killer (same with nurse mains). spirit doesn't really have to abide by the mechanics of the game and if you have a good audio setup she effectively just plays herself
Go watch ZubatLEL, Ardetha, or ANY OTHER God level Nurse play another Killer, and then tell me your opinion.
zubat isn't a nurse main, he's a billy main. i watch him regularly and he'll tell you the exact same thing. it's funny you'd use him as a reference when he's actually said spirit should be tweaked to be more fair because of how strong she currently is, that's amazingly ironic
by nurse/spirit main, i mean players who almost only play nurse or spirit. and i say this as someone whose first killer was nurse back when i first started playing the game. i played pretty much only nurse, such that when i had a couple of hundred hours under my belt and tried to play another killer i might as well have had 0, because of how much of a departure nurse is from how killer is actually played. the same goes for spirit. once you actually have to play dead by daylight and you're used to playing spirit or nurse you suffer and have to basically relearn the game
the bottom line is that regardless of how fun it is to play, a killer with no counterplay is very bad for the health of the game. keep in mind that "just run iron will" is not a legitimate response. running a perk is not counterplay, actual gameplay is counterplay, and if i need to run a specific perk all the time just to have a chance of surviving against a specific killer who knows what they're doing then that essentially makes the argument for me
I'm glad someone gets it
I don't hate her but I'm not a huge fan of playing against her cause if she's a good Spirit, you'll just die, can't do much really.
That's a bad cop out at best. Read her lore and you see she rode her bike home and immediately heard her mother being killed.
So you're either suggesting that, just because she has a uniform at work, she rode a pushbike home through the streets in nothing more than bandages with a bike seat wedgie, or she got home and went "Hey Dad, can you hold off on murdering Mum while I just strip almost naked? Thanks."
No part of her lore suggests any reason she would be next to naked when she died. Nor is there any reason to strip her. Hell, the entity took Ash NAKED and clothed him.
So yeah, there's a massive difference between the blatant fanservice of an almost-naked teenage Japanese girl being used as complete weeb bait, and a crusty old half-cannibalised woman with her fried egg swinging around.
@anarchy753 She was slashed by her Father then fell through a window after having seen her mother cut open. She was still alive so her Father continued cutting her up. If she wants to be half naked then let her be half naked.
Plus, ghosts and the like, often adorn the clothing they wore before death.
@miaasma you're literally saying that to a person who plays Spirit because he has mastered every other killer. Except Billy, but Billy is a headache.
I think we'll agree to disagree since we have such different opinions.
