So Ghost Face will indeed receive a nerf?

Did I read that right? May not have much effect at all but still I somewhat can't believe they actually plan to nerf him already. Can't we at least wait and see how he does at high ranks before planning any nerfs to him? I don't want to spend money on any new killer if he might not be as viable anymore.

Especially the fact that marked survivors can no longer be stalked. Why the hell? Are you to afraid of releasing an actually powerful killer?

    Sorry I'm out of the loop of the latest news, what is the nerf?

    Marked survivors does that mean exposed?

    From the post detailing the patch:


    DEV NOTE: We have made some slight adjustments to Ghost Face following the second PTB. Unfortunately, they have not made it into the current patch but will be introduced in an upcoming hotfix in the near future. Thank you for your understanding.


    The Ghost Face:

    · Stalk rate add-ons (Telephoto Lens, Night Vision Monocular) are slightly reduced.

    · Pallet stuns will now break Ghost Face out of stealth.

    · Marked Survivors may no longer be stalked.

    · Killer Instinct base duration slightly increased.

    · Killer Instinct add-on (Marked Map, Victim’s Detailed Routine) duration slightly increased.

    · Detection area of screen slightly increased for Survivors attempting to reveal Ghost Face

    I'm okay with most of the changes. I expected the stalking while already marked to be removed since it didn't seem like it was intentional. However, they should be slightly buffing him in other areas to compensate.

    Likewise, no further changes to his perks which desperately need it. And Mettle of Man still require you to be injured, which is unnecessary since the whole problem with it was the disparity between M1 and M2 Killers.

    Still, they didn't gut this patch, so small victories.

    It sounds like a really small nerf but he probably will be more fair like this. He can be lethal but high ranks will probably beva mixed bag for him. He's gonna be fun to play regardless.

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 3,970

    Yes exactly. You were able to stalk them to prelong the exposed effect, but not anymore.

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 3,970

    I hope it really will just be a very small nerf to him. I was really looking forward to a viable killer at high ranks, and any noticable nerf might hurt him too much.

    If they wanna nerf any killer, they should take a look at Nurse and her addons. Still can't believe they don't touch her addons but then nerf killers like Ghost Face.

    @ad19970 Eh i don't see the big deal there that sounds unnecessary to have imo.

  • NikkiwhatNikkiwhat Member Posts: 1,334

    No idea about the add-ons since I dont have access to PTB...but the rest of the changes look reasonable/fairly tame.

    Pallet stun effect makes sense, the stalking is fine,,would be too strong if you could keep stalk-tracking people with a endless potential to insta-down, where as Michael can only Tier 3 (outside of Add-ons) for so much/many times.

    *slowly shrugs* maybe I'm missing something.

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 3,970

    I'm just worried about the fact you can't stalk marked survivors. I feel like that might hurt him too much. With the many pallets on a map, 45 seconds might not always be enough time to down a survivor. His ability doesn't help with loops.

    Him being able to stalk marked survivors gave him at least some counterplay at safe loops.

    I'll wait and see how it plays out before I decide. I suspect people are overreacting.

    EDIT - Downvotes for being reasonible eh? Thanks for proving all the suvivor apologists right and making this look like a killer echo-chamber. FFS, get a grip guys.

    its ok guys just feel the music

  • n2njauwun2njauwu Member Posts: 256

    well i mean i guess they will merge legion and ghostface into 1 character i guess ? xd

  • PolarBearPolarBear Member Posts: 1,899

    What did stalking an exposed survivor do? Add more time to the exposed? In that case it's pretty reasonable that it got changed imo.

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 3,970

    Dude you should maybe start realising that your posts are pointless.

  • Tru3LemonTru3Lemon Member Posts: 1,358

    the most funny part its whats the points the votes that who loved the change for ghostface in the ptb

  • DrazenDrazen Member Posts: 400

    hes 5th member of the so called killer group 'The Legion'

  • DrDeepwoundDrDeepwound Member Posts: 1,952

    most killer mains expect this stuff

  • PoisonNPoisonN Member Posts: 624

    Awnnn in any case we have the Nurse by the way

    Feel the music

  • ad19970ad19970 Member Posts: 3,970

    Lol too fitting. Survivors seem to hate go against Nurse yet who else are you supposed to pick if only a handful of killers are viable at high rank.

    It's not about the nerfs being harsh or not, he just didn't need nerfs whatsoever.

    But I mean, who's surprised really? They probably just want to be absolutely sure we don't get another killer that even resembles something viable at red ranks. Everyone loves having to play the same 3 killers over and over right?

  • Mc_HartyMc_Harty Member Posts: 3,293

    What is the point in asking your community if they liked the changes to Ghost Face, only to just change him again just after launch?

    I swear, this game isn't going to last another 5 months if the devs keep ######### up like this.
