Should Noed be removed considering killers have one shot insta downs?

I feel like a lot of killers take advantage of this on top of their one shot kills to slug everyone. Majority of the time it makes the game unfun when they start to slug.

On Facebook killers troll and make fun bout that. But facts are, most killers camp their totems/hexs. And not everyone in game will run around looking for totems.

    So survivors should get nerfed to the ground, making the game completely unfair? What will happen when there's no longer survivors to play because the killers are all op with perks and attacks?

  • Ark_the_BonsaiArk_the_Bonsai Member Posts: 862

    nah, it's fine as is. I do really think there should be a totem counter in the game though

  • Nyxis_FierNyxis_Fier Member Posts: 77

    I think it's op personally. Especially when killer already has one shot attacks like the chain saw, head traps and head shot hatchets that all insta down.

    Though I do think it'll benefit greatly to have a Totem counter that'll count down after each gets removed. Or at least highlight the totem when you have small game and you're near it.

    I think it should be removed because it's a bad perk that basically rewards killers who weren't able to stop survivors from doing their objectives

  • EndstilleEndstille Member Posts: 1,845

    Sorry but every killer that relies on noed is probably bad at the game.

    The perk is a wasted slot, you do not have to bother to even cleanse dull totems due to the fact the time is better used spend doing something else. So noed activates at the end of the match, oh no, now you have to look for the totem. It will be cleansed in what a minute?

    I completely understand your frustration when it comes to 1 shot downs and I agree it is a little bit over powered and some things could be reworked but as for NOED it is very much counter able but you don't see it as often the higher you climb in ranks. If you are really concerned about it however then I suggest that you personally ensure all totems have been cleansed. Either by bringing perks such as Small Game / Detectives Hunch or you could bring a Rainbow Map / Map with Red Twine.

  • Nyxis_FierNyxis_Fier Member Posts: 77

    I've played with some of the higher ranks. As well as my brother being rank 1. He would see it often being used as well as ruin. Yeah it can be countered. But not everyone goes looking for those totem especially when the killer downs one, and then just runs around slugging everyone. I use small game. I am usually the only one running around getting totems and I'm at rank 8. But it still doesn't help when you have killers camping by their hexs. Plus other traps also triggers your small game. I dont use the map much since I normally play king and either carry a tool box or med kits for others.

  • nightfallnightfall Member Posts: 31

    I think it should stay because it punishes survivors who ignore easy side objectives.

  • Nyxis_FierNyxis_Fier Member Posts: 77

    There is no "no" option because there shouldn't be. This is mainly for people who feel/view otherwise. To express without the fear of getting harassed by killers who feel so strong to keep it when they in fact don't need it.

  • SiveriousSiverious Member Posts: 12

    Maybe if they had more of an impact to our objectives people would do them more but it doesn't and most dont cleanse because it really makes no impact to the main objective it's an optional thing, not to mention it's hell coordinating with randoms to even get them all.

    NOED should be left alone and remain as is.

    Survivors have countermeasures to NOED. It's called breaking the totems. Having trouble finding them ? Survivors have a countermeasure for that too. It's called Small Game.

    I know, I know, Survivors can't possibly have fun unless the Killers are reduced to a punching bag that they can flashlight stun, teabag, pallet stun, loop, and gen rush into oblivion.

    Here's some food for thought though. If you keep nerfing killers, you won't have a game left, because Killers will be nonexistent. Survivors are a dime a dozen and outnumber Killers 4 to 1. Keep asking for nerfs to killers and you'll run out of players to bully.

  • Nyxis_FierNyxis_Fier Member Posts: 77

    As I stated above, small game also reacts to traps. If they're going to keep nerfing survivors, their perks and items then they should do the same to the killers such as noed. Survivors get nerfed more then killers do in my opinion. And significantly. While it's 4 to 1 killer, killer can still one shot survivors WITHOUT having to use any perks. Survivors get a 4% to get unhooked on their own. None the less now they're changing insta heal because killers keep complaining about it. So the moment someone says otherwise on noed, there's a problem?

    Killers are a dime a dozen too. It's easier to find killers then a group of survivors. Many times in waiting endlessly in a lobby with a killer.

  • nightfallnightfall Member Posts: 31

    Well then clearly NOED is not an issue if you don't want to bother turning it off.

    You don't even really need to try hard cleansing it either. Even without totem locating perks or maps, the chance of NOED surviving would be incredibly low if survivors simply cleansed every dull totem they saw while running around doing main objectives.

  • Raven014Raven014 Member Posts: 3,660

    No. Not every killer has a one shot, and those that do either have to use their ability (which is weak like Bubba and GF), or addons (Huntress and Clown). Getting rid of NOED does two things:

    1. Encourages toxic SWFs to be more toxic at endgame.
    2. People to pick certain killers even more than they already do.

    NOED is a safety net perk. Not just to get used to a killer, but also to try new things and rely on it if it fails. It's already weak in the fact it's a hex that, under the current game, has no reason to remain intact if a survivor sees it.

    Some buttons are missing such as "No" or "just nerf noed".

    I would let noed nerf in that way that you need a requierment to get the effect, something like you need to hook every survivor atleast once. Or down a specific amount of survivors.

    Noed is fine how it is but it is annoying that some bad killers get some free kills with noed for no effort or skilled gameplay, WATCH OUT SARCASM! (just go afk, get noed and then some ez kills or hooks and then camp the until they are dead.) WATCH OUT SARCASM!

    In video games, the monster's final form should be more difficult to beat than its original form. Players shouldn't reach a point in the game before it's even over and be like, "Woohoo, it's easy street from here! I'm home free!" Once those exit gates are powered, the killer becomes much weaker; NOED makes the killer dangerous again.

    I don't like dying to NOED, but there are multiple reasons why I don't think it should be removed from the game. (Other reasons: It counters Adrenaline. It encourages survivors to take some time away from gens and cleanse dull totems. It can be used for an end-game build.)

    The perk Small Game should have a totem counter.

  • FibijeanFibijean Member Posts: 8,283

    Then... why even make a poll, if there's only one answer people are allowed to give?

    I'm a survivor main, by the way, I barely play killer except for dailies, so this isn't coming from a killer who just wants easy wins. NOED is one of the most easily countered perks in the game. If some people don't do totems to counter it, that is 100% their fault. If killers want to use it in conjunction with a power that lets them instadown, how is that any different to a survivor choosing perks that compliment their choice of item?

    We can't remove a perk from the game just because it works well with the powers of certain killers, that's lunacy. Killers are allowed to have good loadouts, and they're allowed to employ strategies that make it easier for them to get kills. Again, this is one of the most reliably counterable strategies in the entire game, so it's not even that great. There's really no call to remove it altogether.

    It may seem that way but NOED is easily counterable and you are fully capable of disabling NOED before it's active.

    What you lack is the capacity to deny NOED before activation.

    I don't really feel it's unfair when i verse it.

    Plus they said they also feel it's fair.

    None of these choices are close enough to my opinion, unfortunately.

  • PolarBearPolarBear Member Posts: 1,899

    Kinda just defeats the purpose of a poll if you're not gonna add the other answer there.

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,088

    Noed is fine imo, I have no problem cleansing totems when I’m a survivor.

  • Boosted_DwightBoosted_Dwight Member, Trusted Posts: 2,674

    I pick no because doing totems isn't difficult.

  • GibberishGibberish Member Posts: 386

    NOED is literally just a anti-genrush perk. It's fine. Break the totems.
