The more I see the less hyped I get. Demogorgon looks weaker everyday.
The counterplay to the pounce the demogorgan has is to move left or right of it, pull a pallet down or dead hard it already has more counterplay than Huntress hatchets, plagues vomit, clowns tonic and it's only an attack which takes 1 health state unlike billys chainsaw.
Then tell them why it's a bad change, the developers can't read your mind. :)
Going to leave this here: (Read the second paragraph from @Peanits)
Isn't that the point of the game?
1 - Already nerfed the lunge. It takes longer to charge now(I may be going crazy though, please correct me if so)
2 - Usually they release Killers weak/subpar on PTB, then nerf on chapter release, then buff to midtier with midchapter update.
Not buying the day it drops ... Im waiting for a month ... I have been burned waaay too often.
No.... a proper buff to the teleport would be if a survivor is injured near a portal the demogorgon travels faster to that portal....
And if I'm being honest I don't really think the killer needs a nerf or buff atm.... I believe more playtime is needed because players haven't really learned the ins an out of the character..... I feel the playerbase is treating the portals like hags traps which is something go off from but from what I can tell getting the most out of the portals is more strategic...
I hope the devs leave the demogorgon as is on release
He has both good map pressure and good chase potential, he seems perfectly viable at red ranks to me.
I said IF they do nerf it, not that I want to nerf it, and I never said anything about buffs? I agree that we should wait and see more before making any real judgements on it.
Nothing has changed yet. There hasn't even been an update since the Demogorgon hit the PTB.
I was going crazy then. I think I was using the 'increase of the abyss activation charge speed' addons too much. Yhanks for correcting
I feel like the movement speed deserves a very tiny nerf from 115mps to 113mps. It's a bit of an ugly number but I feel like the pounce attack still enables you to make up ground and for the demogorgan to be nerfed in any other way kinda nullifies him.
I'll be really happy if they leave him untouched but I do feel like he can make up a little too much ground spamming pounce again and again with no cooldown.
The fact he has no cooldown lets him intercept the path of the Survivor which I really like. I am fearful that bad killers will have an easy ride using demogorgan though.
So I'd prefer his movement speed to be nerfed over his power/pounce if a nerf was to come. Ultimately he's decent, probably the closest to the most balanced killers yet.
I know they'll upset a big chunk of wannabe demogorgan players if a nerf does come which is why I feel like they'll just go with it for a while to see if there's anything that can be tweaked months down the line.
I don't recall any changes to the Plague upon being moved to the live server (the movement speed while holding her power was literally after a day or two of being on the PTB and something they had stated they were unsure about before the PTB went online at the time if you mean that)
Ghostface needed those changes for consistency's sake.
Rework Freddy received no nerfs during his PTB and also didn't on going to the live server, with zero talk about the possibility even coming from the devs up until now.
Demogorgon isn't being considered OP en masse; in fact, both sides are considering him very fun and mostly fair. The only issue with him seems to be the hitbox for his Shred, which probably won't receive a change since it's issue is similar to that of a hatchet from the huntress. I honestly think it's very balanced with a lot of potential, and nothing from the devs seem to suggest otherwise so far, either.
Even as a survivor, I doubt he’s getting a nerf. He’s in a pretty good place IMO.
So far the community is very happy where he is place wise: I think he’s perfect.
EDIT:Grammar and Stuff.
It's also very easy for him to sneak up on unsuspecting survivors (in the dream world) thanks to his lullaby - it can be very confusing even when it comes to high level players, it seems.
I like playing against Demo more than other killers. He scares the crap out of me— and it really is just so much more interesting (to me personally) than facing other killers.
Exactly. The amount of information he gets on top of map pressure and a lunge are really nothing to snuff at; sure, many of us have experienced bullying him because the PTB has put us up against low rank players testing out a new killer, but man, this killer can be so scary to go against even with crappy add-ons which is so rare.
The fact he can appear out of seemingly nowhere and you have to keep an eye out when you hear the teleportation sound is a lot of fun too; it keeps us more active rather than passive as often happens when playing survivor. A good Demogorgon player that has gotten the feel for all aspects of the base power seems like it will be a force to reckon with and I love that fact!
do you know the Numbers on Shred? Specifically the movement speed during the charge, movement speed during the attack and the total distance traveled during the move?
basically make demogorgon m1 only with nurse speed :)))
