Devs, are you gonna ignore Legion's problems for the next 6 months?

Archives, Nurse, Chapters, Doctor, how about Legion?

It is difficult to call him weak, their detection ability and stall potential are not bad, but he is actually overnerfed and not voable at red ranks. His power has huge cooldown, huge fatigue, doesn't allow you to do anything vs injured survivors, he is very slow.

My thoughts about what changes need to add to the Legions basekit:

- Reduce fatigue duration to 3.5 seconds, rework add-ons reducing fatigue

- Reduce cooldown to 15 second

- Reduce vault durations in FF to 1 second!

- Legion can refill his power gauge by hitting survivors already afflicted by Deep Wound (rework Franks mixtape!!!)

- Feral Frenzy movement speed is 4.8 m/s, but triggering Killer instinct insreases movement speed to 6 m/s

- Reduce Deep Wound timer to 10 seconds.

Devs, Legions power is very unique and interesting! It is so sad that you ignore their power.

    @UlvenDagoth Tell me about it. I want to play Legion. But he seems to have some sort of undocumented ability that gives survivors a unique emote whenever they see him in a match.

    They drop to the ground and roll around in laughter. :(

    Yea, I've posted a few times with my thoughts on Legion and the game as a whole. It's like if you arnt bitching no one looks or cares. I had to have it shown to me too (The exploits) and thought of them as ######### moves.

    <------------- long time Overwatch player right there. Some Beta and since Day 1. Thousands of posts at their forums. And like here, never asking for nerfs or buffs or discussing balance issues.

    You could cut and past the crap from here right to Overwatch, just change a Perk name to a hero's power, and there you go.

    Hell, since RoleQ has been forced on Overwatch and DPS queue times have sky-rocketed, you now have the Us vs Them fights going on between the Support/Tank mains and the DPS mains, mirroring Survivor main vs Killer main here.

    It's all extremely pathetic.

    @Peanits can you please make the team aware?

    Nobody is happy with this Legion. Somethibg needs to be done please

  • Chaotic_RiddleChaotic_Riddle Member Posts: 1,949

    Team is already aware, though whether or not they'll actually do something is up for debate. We'll just have to wait and see. Sorry if that's not the response you want, but it's better than hearing another dev tell you that they're 'listening to feedback', so...

    I miss the ability to be able down survivors with his power again hate have hit and run should left that part to be able down in his frenzy

  • Aztreonam78Aztreonam78 Member Posts: 1,016

    This was VERY unfun mechanic, survivors were too helpless before, Legion just was able to wait untill gauge is filled and down.

    It took them two years to do anything about Freddy. So, give it another year and a half. If there's anything you should learn about the devs, is that they are notoriously slow to do anything. Look how long it took them to fix the sprint burst exploit?

    -The pre patch Legion was not the only killer who could do that. Infact, there are killers in the current game who can down you with their m2 attack/s.

    -What for the one is unfun, is for a other player fun. If we really start to go down this road, we should delete every killer abilitie and also his main abilitie - to kill survivors.

    Some people like to have viable m2 attacks and some people like to be pressured by it.

    -If you tell me that a survivor had no chance against a basic Legion without those op addons attached, then you make me chuckle.

    -Btt. I am honestly surprised how long the devs need to make a announcement for a Legion rework, or undone of the rework. Every other companie I know would already have done it.

    Look at the devs from Frostpunk at example: The people have riot there that the game had no endless mode... After a few weeks where the riot has not stop, the devs announced that they will implement some sort of endless mode and then the riot has stop and everybody is happy.

    The devs from dbd seem to have something against making everybody happy. I just can shrug my shoulders to it - its their money what they lost because they doing nothing what this topic matters.

    Personally, when I would be able to choose between the normal money dbd brings in and the normal money dbd brings in + a happy Legion community, I would choose the last option.

    I don't know how many money dbd makes each month, but it would only be logical that it would be more with a happy Legion community, where Legion players come back to the game after they left it because of the Legion patch and with happy Legion dlc buyers, who don't feel cheated because of the advertisment video of the Legion that shows a totally different Legion as what she is today.

    I had a topic about this before that is waiting approval now cause I edited it. Btw, it was against your point.

  • IhatelifeIhatelife Member Posts: 5,069

    They don't ignore him, they're aware of this since the Legion update goes live. We just need to wait.

  • ChickenchaserChickenchaser Member Posts: 391

    No. They're Going to ignore legion for the next 5 years.

  • Aztreonam78Aztreonam78 Member Posts: 1,016

    No, they are focused on demogorgons chapter, winter chapter, Nurses addon changes and on archives

  • IhatelifeIhatelife Member Posts: 5,069

    Buddy, we cannot do anything about it. I also want Legion to be buffed, but they've mentioned that they need a time.

  • ItsYourBoyGuzmaItsYourBoyGuzma Member Posts: 799


    More like next 3 years because this year will be rift and nurse focus.

    Next year with other dlc's /rift/ and the doctor rework...

    Then finally theyll admit to legion being dogshit then finally think about reworking him LUL

    Hey chaotic

    I would love to get some advice on Legion please 🐖

    I was really excited for the changes but everytime I play them I end up very frustrated feeling like I'm not doing much of anything. Also be aware I play on console so getting 360 alot can be a nightmare on console if I'm honest because of penalty to missing attacks.

    But I'm hoping you can offer advice to me thank you


  • Chaotic_RiddleChaotic_Riddle Member Posts: 1,949

    Legion is a toughie to learn in their current state, and I apologize to @Aztreonam78 for this being off topic, but as a Legion main, I tend to run a certain build that puts Legion’s power into the hands of the Survivors in a way that works for you. I call it the Mega-Stall. I currently think Legion has the best stalling in the game with certain perks and add-ons.

    The gist of it is to always run any of the blade add-ons if possible and another add-on of your liking. The perks mainly consist of Sloppy, Thanatophobia, Ruin/Pop Goes The Weasel, and either BBQ, Coulrophobia, or Nurse’s.

    The gimmick here is to use your ability when needed, not wanted. If Survivors take the time to go through the 15-20 second mending time AND heal with Sloppy affecting them. If not, then you’re just dealing with Survivors who are in a constant injured state and are suffering from a much slower gen progression time from Thana and the other two gen perks I mentioned above. The only time you should really use your ability is when Survivors start to actually heal. When they realize they can’t exactly go with it, they’ll be forced to deal with a SLIGHTLY longer Gen process. The last perk, of your choice, is to either help heavily affect the healing time with coul or get some good aura readings off of Survivors who aren’t playing it safe.

    Hopefully, this helps. I’ve played on console before and I know how hard it can be to deal with 360ing, so hopefully this build can help you deal with it less often without the need to use your ability.

  • DarkskiesDarkskies Member Posts: 1,139

    Thank you! I will give it a go let you know how I get on sounds interesting build.

    Yes sorry op but I really was enjoying Legion up in till of late I guess getting higher in rank is when you really see how lack luster he is. Being able to work on a gen while in deep wound and still have time to mend is crazy bad.

    I don't understand the silence about Legion it must be so frustrating for you guys that have been so passionate about getting ideas out.


  • answer : yes.

  • DBDbuildsYTDBDbuildsYT Member Posts: 1,042

    That doesn't mean this isn't an urgent situation.

    I'm not interested in the old legion so I just want something fun and viable.

    And its very unfair that due to survivors lobbying by dcing against legion we ended up with a buffoon of a killer.

    We need a rework and fast, this situation is unacceptable

  • UkilledLegionUkilledLegion Member Posts: 647

    I 1000 times wrote about stab wounds study and frank's mixtape because this not help to killer this addons need rework but green addons not bad and about gameplay.I can understand why Legion not see cut progress and why progress in terror stop and why health cut progress is saving....I think it so bad all changes only for surviviors

  • PhilipOmnisPhilipOmnis Member Posts: 16

    According to the official line dropped by one of the dev streams, Legion was buffed rather than nerfed. My best guess from that? It'll be a long time. Keep those fingers crossed!

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 3,101

    I was maining old Legion aswell, new Legion is just boring as hell, I even try to replace my legion dailys. I really love this game and I bought alot of cosmetics and all Chapters but I never paid for a old Freddy 2.0 DLC, my money was never so much wasted as in the new Legion.

  • justarandyjustarandy Member Posts: 1,711

    Freddy got a whole rework. This here are just number tweaking. Early 2020 should be alright
