The Nerf Cycle

    Thats not really true they have done some great changes in the past the Hag for one and just recently the Freddy rework. Then there is the spirit and Huntress.

    I don't count Legion, Plague or Ghostface I feel they just weren't that well designed from the start imo. Legion imo should have a Freddy type rework and a whole new power and it was a killer which probably started from idea from the community. There were quite a few posts in the past asking for a killer that could jump pallets and windows. The others were given a power which put its strongest part into the survivors hands.

    Personally I wish for them to slow down a bit and take more time with the dlc's as the best ones took more thought.

    With Legion I see it as an example of what the community wants doesnt always turn out good for the game.

    That on top of all the nerfs and buffs on both sides to try and make it more balanced.

    We've trusted them the whole time! I came around when Myers was released. I bought this game for Myers. What they do? Nerfed him. Screwed up Wraith cube. (Yes he is better, but they also nerfed stuff and did stuff nobody wanted) Freddy.... Atlantis. Plague? Weak. GF... Weak! Leatherface... Who cares lol? I mean come on. Spirit had to have been a mistake when she was made. She's the only Killer that's actually a constant threat despite being add on dependent.

    The amount of game knowledge and skill from the playerbase has reached a point where we deserve some high level balancing. Yes, that DOES mean touching the Nurse. It's as objective as anything in this game gets, balance wise. That also means buffing the weaker killers.

    We just got an awesome rework that pulled a killer out of the gutter and into playability and people already found something else to complain, ffs

    Jesus christ I've never seen so much complaining in my life

    Nerf Nurse though.

    Honestly, one of the worst parts about this whole thing is the Survivor Main advocates on the forum already openly admitting to being ready to go after Spirit next. For the betterment of the game and the enjoyment of everyone, of course.

    "Nurse is fine and has been since release same with her addons" the only thing that made me laugh more was the guy saying "legion was fine on release" this forum is great if you want to laugh at people saying ridiculous things

    I’m just worried that, the devs are gonna make the same mistake that made with legion, plague, ghostface, and freddy, and put the counter to the killers power inside the killers power. Mending not counting as a healing action among other things regarding legion, cleaning giving a full heal for Plague, alarm clocks for waking up for Freddy, or simply looking at Ghostface. Killer powers should not have counters built into them.

    If they touch my precious spirit I swear!!!!😡😱😰

  • KaoMinervaKaoMinerva Member Posts: 451

    That's the whole plan. If nurse could be looped, there would be no arguments here. It's the same thing with a spirit. Every pallet is a guessing game and they hate having to outwork the killer.

    It is disheartening but at least we now know where killers stand in BHVR ladder of importance

    Monstrum 2 can't come out soon enough.

  • SpicybarbecueSpicybarbecue Member Posts: 183

    there's already ppl crying for a nerf on the new Freeedy when he's mid-tier at best.

    probably going to happen

  • KaoMinervaKaoMinerva Member Posts: 451

    Because they're upset they can't loop him 5 gens. People were upset about Bamboozle for gods sake. What's so bad about this perk? It's blocks off stupid window loops immediately.

  • MegsAreEvilMegsAreEvil Member Posts: 819

    Of course if people have any changes to tell its allways crying. Sheesh. How outdated are you?

  • MegMain98MegMain98 Member Posts: 2,822

    There isn’t much they can do to Nurse to make her loopable. If they put blinks on a cooldown then she HAS to be at least 110% movement speed. They already said that they are mainly reworking her add-ons. I don’t believe they’ll butcher Nurse. She is still going to be the best killer in the game.

    Spirit on the other hand can be butchered by making her terrible like she was on the PTB. People have already said they’ll whine like babies to advocate a change for Spirit after they change Nurse. I doubt they’ll make any of the strong killers extremely weak.

    Poor Hag got a change a short time ago, please don’t change her.

    I play both sides 50/50 and I can loop most killers for a long time despite not being as good of a survivor as I once was. Nurse and Spirit (somewhat Hag) change this because they can’t be looped easily. I enjoy a challenge and being able to change my playstyle instead of mindlessly looping a weak ass Leatherface.

    I get more Legion and Billy players than Nurse and Spirit anyways.

    Think of your playstyle and changing it instead of bitching and moaning for stronger killer to get nerfed.

  • gantesgantes Member Posts: 1,611

    Nothing meaningful will happen to the Spirit so you guys can chill

    Besides, there's absolutely NO WAY to butcher Nurse with her current kit. They're only gonna make small changes, they said. What small change can they do to butcher her? It's impossible. Her kit is inherently strong, you don't make her significantly weaker without changing core mechanics, which they won't do.

  • KaoMinervaKaoMinerva Member Posts: 451

    Didn't they say that with legion? Didn't they say the ghostface changes were small?

  • MegMain98MegMain98 Member Posts: 2,822

    @gantes True...a small change will not hurt the Nurse’s base kit. It is already super strong. If it is indeed a small change, she will still be super strong.

    They haven’t mentioned changing Spirit but she is the next strongest killer people complain about. I am doubtful anything will happen to her to be honest, just sick of hearing bitching over and over again.

    Old Legion was a curse...Legion overall is an AWFULLY designed killer. Never should’ve seen the light of day.
