Watching a survivor run away while having no means to chase them.
Nurse main here, I play spirit now.
And it wasn't even a good implementation of one.
The best I've seen so far is a bar which charging a blink drains from, so you can rapidly blink like 4ish times in a row without letting any cooldown happen, but it rewards patient + precise blinks but also allows you to use it more freely than the cage of a power bar we have now.
I just quit and uninstalled. Teleporting everywhere was so fun and unique, now it's a chore and so janky. No other killer besides Hag has anything close to that, and it got boring after a while getting set up and 2~3 gens are done.
She's clunky. On console, it's already difficult to blink accurately (I say this after putting enough time to get multiple levels of Devotion into her), and it was already punishing with the fatigue, but now it's even worse. When I tried playing as her, I spent most of my time looking at the power bar; staring at a power bar isn't fun. And to make it worse, I would still mess up and try to blink early.
It was already a struggle to have fun with her on console. Now it's just a completely miserable experience. I was never able to 4k with her, but at least her mechanics were a fun challenge. Now, she's not fun at all.
It's not just that she's less fun now, it's that she's downright frustrating to use. I question how much internal testing was even with the cooldown or how much Nurse player feedback was taken into account considering survivors can simply outrun her now. That's absolutely ridiculous and shouldn't have gone live.
Its because Spirit is a lot more accessible and less punishing, and generally gives the same amount of kills.
She isn’t dead. Not even on console.
It is clear no one on the team plays Nurse otherwise these changes would've never left the design table.
not_Queen is a nurse main.
Yeah you don't have that awesome server test going on do you?
I'm not angry or anything, it's just first hand experience is the best way for you to understand
But since you can't play her, i can onply say that you looks at you power bar more than looking at survivors. You can't constant blinking anymore, which was what made her fun. Also, survivors can basically have much easier time juking you, because running in straight line is a viable option now.
No, we do not.
Well i hope for your sake and all other ps4 players that you don't for a long time because I think that + rework that completely screwed musclememory is the result why people do not pick her anymore. For me the killer is non existent now like so many others and my waiting times increase.
You're a trusted member of the community, not a official dev.
Read the conversation. They were talking about console. Which currently still runs on peer-to-peer.
We as in console players. We, the console players don’t have dedicated servers. I hope this helps you understand what I meant. :)
A screenshot does not at all prove a thing. 1 single screenshot? We don't know how poorly you played at all.
She was never popular on console.
Rank 1 survivor on PS4 and have played enough to finish the first rank of the rift. Have only seen two nurses during that (both red ranks) and they got 2Ks each. Still scary but definitely feel better about juking LOS blockers. Didn’t see any crazy add on combo either unfortunately
Omg so i tried her just today and they trashed her so bad. Right now every other killer is better than her in my opinion. Ill add to this that i played her most of my 1500h hours in the game so im not new to her.
Im playing in rank 1-2:
I tried several new addons combinations and her base kit and... god those addons... are SO bad. How could it be possible to worse her addons even more? Im surprised they could manage to do that...
The only way i could play/"enjoy her"(not really) and not get 4 escapes or just 1 kill was using "spasmodic breath" wich gives you 4.6 speed after a hit with blink and chase like a normal killer wich compared to the old nurse this sucks.
Her addons sucks. Im pretty sure they nerfed her blink lunge, its so short that is ridiculous, and not happy with that you have to wait for blink charges. Im on pc and this change is terrible so i can imagine literaly no one will play her on console.
And now no one will play her in pc either. Im not playing her anymore until they change this. And also not supporting this guys with the buy of new rift passes/skin. Im very dissapointed.
They really shadownerfed her lunge? I'm not sure, but i do miss a lot of blink lunge after update. Or is it the byproduct of dedicated server?
The devs made Nurse unsatisfying to play. That's basically it.
I haven't seen any Nurses either.
She is not worse than every other killer.
And no her lunge wasn't changed. Nurse's lunge (AFTER A BLINK) has always been slightly slower than a normal killer lunge.
In the 160s rather than 172.5 as average iirc.
Actually I think they changed that when the patch was released, correct me if I wrong, but when they released the patch notes, they changed the cooldown so it happens right after the fatigue.
Yeah, I already mained spirit, and beore the nurse nerf, I was considering maining nurse. After the nurse nerf, I just dropped her.
I feel like after they nerf spirit 3 things will happen: Veteran players and killers will either quit the game or switch to survivor side, survivor queue times will get longer, causing survivors to derank or the Devs will change the MM again so that red rank surviors can vs any rank killer, and that the longer queue times and lack of killers may cause survivors to quit resulting in the game possibly dying.
no, it starts when you start your fatigue, so you need total 3.5 sec to have 2 blinks back after fatigue
Oh okay, I guess I was wrong. Thanks for the correction.
I have just stopped playing her its not fun to run after survivors after you hit them.
