Does anyone actually LIKE playing against the Doctor?

I feel like he's just extremely annoying rather than scary or stressful to play against. He doesn't feel very fun to play against at all. I'd rather play against a Nurse. I don't think he's overpowered or anything, just really unfun.

    I tend to play stealth and I welcome any doc games as a challenge.

    Also no killer is "scary"

    There are many things in this game that are unfun to face. Doctor isn`t the worst of them.

    Doctor personally annoys me

    He is fun killer to go against but he is weak imo

  • darktrixdarktrix Member Posts: 1,790

    The ones that purposely steer the game toward a three gen strat are the most annoying. I don't like hour long matches.

    He is more of an annoyance than anything. I’d rather go against a Doctor than A LOT of other killers.

    He sucks so I don't really care.

    Kind of annoying but not strong.

    Then you haven't played against a good Myers, GF, or Spirit...or killer with tinkerer while working on the first gen.

    Have you ever escaped a doc without ever being in T1 madness?

  • Atrushan88Atrushan88 Member Posts: 2,083

    @MegMain98 That's my feeling exactly, except I'd rather face other killers. He's not really someone I care about facing because he's just an annoyance. His passive making skillchecks a bit more difficult is the only thing I find interesting about him.

    @Dragonredking A GhostFace or Myers can definitely be scary. Sure, they lose that after you find out who they are, although that first jump scare is generally always a rush.

    What's that got to do with there being no scary killers?

    Also: yes. But only when they didn't know how their power worked and I was new to the game.

    I like facing Doctors, but i can say there are some really annoying builds that can make it less fun if not annoying. This is true with others killers too though.

    I like facing doctor, though nobody plays him at red ranks and if they do, they lose almost all the time. It's fun when you loop him for 5 generators.you never said what's annoying/unfun about him, but his power is largely very useless even with pink add-on.

    I don't mind it. Everything that's required is survivors with foresight, so they don't 3-gen us against one.

  • AcromioAcromio Member Posts: 1,737

    I love looping Doctors for 5 generators and see them ragequit as soon as the EGC timer appears on screen.

    @Atrushan88 I’m never excited about facing Doctor but he is pretty weak and extremely loopable. He is very annoying due to the charcters screaming all the time and the passive skillchecks but it isn’t anything horrible.

    When you have killers like Nurse, Billy, and Spirit roaming around in high ranks...Doctor is a nice change.

  • Dwight_FairfieldDwight_Fairfield Member Posts: 5,547

    He can be annoying but I don't hate facing him.

  • VolantConch1719VolantConch1719 Member Posts: 1,133

    The only thing I don't like about him is how much he lags my game.

    I'll readily admit that I am an atrocious Survivor, but I still enjoy the challenge that Herman provides. Especially given my usual stealth playstyle.

  • Atrushan88Atrushan88 Member Posts: 2,083

    @MegMain98 I don't have trouble facing him, he's just not fun. His power is extremely annoying and hard to dodge(You can dodge it, but it's not easy when you don't even know where it'll go), but it's pretty pointless overall. It's basically just a power to prevent you from doing stuff, or interrupt you while doing something.

    @Devil_hit11 Just his power in general: interrupting actions, revealing you when you're near him for him doing absolutely nothing, etc. It isn't really a GOOD power, but it's really annoying when playing against it. Doctor feels to me like the weakest killer, but also the most un-fun to face. I know people like to say Freddy is the worst, but I've definitely won more games against the Doc than Freddy, and they always seemed easier. Although tbf I don't see Freddy a lot.

  • MegMain98MegMain98 Member Posts: 2,821

    @Atrushan88 I can absolutely agree because I have a lot of killers that I despise going against even if their power is not very powerful. I personally hate going against Legion and Pig even though they are toward the bottom of the barrel when it comes to the tier list. I would much rather go against a killer like Hag or Michael Myers even though they are stronger.

    Doctor on the other hand is very irritating because his power keeps you from doing your objectives. He isn’t very fun to go against but at least he isn’t a complete bore to go against like Hillbilly.

  • MdsTheGriffinMdsTheGriffin Member Posts: 38

    I think he is very unfun to go against because he can literally hold down his shock, and get ANYONE in his radius without even knowing where they are. I really, really, think he would be way more fun to go against, and maybe play as, if he had to have a visual on a survivor, to give them insanity. He is super annoying to go against and I think if they did something to change his shock so it doesn't affect you just because you are in his radius, it would be better. That could just be me and my "Entitled Survivor Main Brain" though, so yeah.. Other than that, he isnt strong... he is just super annoying to go against. He isnt even close to being a high tier killer.

    If it's on the game, FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...

    But on every other maps, I like facing him. Mainly because I can actually loop him. (one time, I looped him for 3 gens on Haddon, someone distracted him enough for me to wiggle off, and he just chased that other person. Sure I had BL, but as a rank 12 at that time, I take that as a massive win.)

    The doctor is actually my a favorite killer to go against! he’s creepy as hell and i love him!

  • SkittlesthehuskySkittlesthehusky Member Posts: 504

    doctor is fine to me! i'm honestly kind of sad that i don't play against him as much as i do with other killers. i suppose he dropped in popularity a bit?
