and the crying can begin.
god no, i hope that does not happen.
It's just frustrating that the devs seem to want to nerf any killer that actually seems viable. If he indeed turns out to be op, than a nerf would be fine of course. But maybe they should wait and see how he does at high ranks before planning any nerf already. It's getting ridiculous.
hopefully this helps
I'm actually laughing though. It's not terrible. Just wanted to see what people would say.
"Detection area of screen slightly increased for Survivors attempting to reveal Ghost Face."
This is the important change IMO. We'll have to see if "slightly" ends up being something relatively benign or if it ends up being problematic. Sadly we won't know until later since the Ghostface changes will arrive in a future patch instead of this one.
Scared of another legion. Though is something even abusable about him? I haven't been keeping up.
It's not about that. It's about their BHVR (pun intended) in general with Killers for the past couple of months.
I'd say that both the increase of the detection area and the fact that you can no longer stalk survivors that are already marked will definitely have some impact on him and will make him just a bit less viable at high ranks. And we need more killers viable at high ranks.
Well, I won't buy him at this time, especially not if they already plan to nerf him.
I do hope others will follow and help set an example. This is a unique opportunity, since Chapter 12 only contains Ghost Face, Survivor mains have no interest buying him in the first place and if Killer players too refuse to buy him for the time being or at all, it will hurt the devs in a way that might actually make them listen again, since licensed Characters are not cheap for them and cost a lot of money to make.
Just so you have the exact data, the increase of the detection on screen is a 4% on each side, for a total of 8%. Its very minimal. We didn't want to alter the timing of the current stalk system. But we felt that Survivors where having a hard time getting him out of his Night Shroud Power during a chase.
That doesn't make the decision any better whatsoever. Stop babying Survivors over and over again, I don't get why you guys still don't get this after 3 years. They can get the good for a change.
so if u made it little easier to reveal him why remove the ability to longer the marked effect , i seen already few ppl make hesitate to buy him since we know what happened to legion
What about him not being able to stalk survivors that are already marked? That's the nerf I'm most concerned about. Was that never intentional to begin with? I'm just worried that might hurt him a bit too much.
Can we just give Legion a new base kit because it is getting really old reading patch notes that talk about changes to other perks or killers that also keep messing with his powers. First it was Borrowed Time and now Killer Instinct is about to get just as messy. We Legion players are already trying to salvage what's left of the killer and it would be great if we can have a set of stats that we don't have to worry about seeing a change in because someone or something else is over or under performing.
What was the point of buffing the timer from 20 seconds to 45 seconds if you could stalk it back to full whenever you wanted?
I agree he needs to be buffed in other areas to compensate, (removing the wind turbine sound when within 8 meters for one) but that was clearly an oversight by the devs.
Unfortunately, this surprises noone.
Buying Ghostface at this point is pure masochism.
Its slight changes that take a Viable Rank 1 Killer to a sub par mid tier. Survivors complain they are tired of seeing the same three Killers at rank 1. Well how about we make more Killers rank 1 viable and stop nerfing them before we even have actual reliable data.
PTB Data is balls, only real community data can be trusted.
The problem with the current one is that it's so damn impossible to reveal him in a chase. If you're off by 0.0000000001mm it doesn't work and EZ exposed. You can literally have him dead center on your screen and it still won't work sometimes.
I'm glad they're at least making it a little easier.
The only issue i would see with him is the stalking while in chase when a surviour is looking back at him for some time doesnt knock him out but i could be wrong ( i play on xbox so havent experience him yet) just wondering if that a actual thing if someone can clarify for me please and thank you.
why would they make a rank 1 killer? the majority of players are mid to low ranks. and they know they will cut themselves with a nurse like killer in this period of time. it's not gonna happen. not even hard to understand
As a masochist, I am offended.
I mean... the changes are literally as follows "detection range was too sensitive, so it was slightly tweaked" and "bugfix" but people are acting like they just ######### murdered him.
what would you expect. crybabies everwhere
Ghostface's exposed status effect is replaced with Deep Wounds.
You ask for constructive criticism, and then proceed to ignore all of it and set the killer up for five nerfs while buffing aspects of their kit that don't matter. I think I'm about done being nice and constructive, as are a lot of people. I'll just join the heaps of people that don't provide anything useful from here on out, as obviously the time spent trying to give detailed, logical breakdowns is entirely wasted.
Your balance team needs to be assigned elsewhere, or fired. I think it's time you looked into hiring people that give a ######### about the future of this game. Sorry to put it so bluntly, but I think these baseless, garbage changes really show where your internal team is at with their knowledge of this game. They're either incompetent, ignorant, or malicious at this point. Pick one, and I pray it's just one of the two 'we're idiots' options.
Oh, and before anyone says "but the changes aren't so bad, they're tiny." Regardless of whether or not they're massive, they've still gone and nerfed a killer who's likely mid tier at best. The principle, that's what matters here.
then buff hes cooldown 30s its way to long should be at least 20-15s if you guys do this i will say that he will be good to go but for the moment i wont buy the dlc since you guys wanted to change him again in the next ptb
Not everyone has faced Ghostface yet and we should all stop complaining about changes until we have played as him. I know some people did play the ptb but the games are mixed with random ranked survivors so its hard to judge him.
Give him a few days and enjoy playing as him. No need to complain about changes that haven't come yet. I personally welcome the changes but if they are too much then they'll revert him back.
Just enjoy the fact he is released, decently strong and we can enjoy him since the event has been extended. Thanks devs for doing this!
