Ghostface good or bad?

When the devs nerfed ghostface(for no reason) Stalking became a waste of time and stealth was a priority, Tru3ta1ent says hes top 3. What are your thoughts

    Middle of the pack, stalking is not a waste.

    He's solid. Struggles with map pressure and chases. His Night Shroud is countered in chases by camping pallets.

    He's just decent on most maps, but very strong on the indoors maps.

    In 95% of the cases his stalking is a complete waste.

    I'd think of him around top 5.

    He's good, not top 3 good though. Not at all.

    Also stalking's not a waste of time, completely disagree with that opinion that's been spreading.

    Ghost Face is a decent killer, but no way he is top 3 ( remember, Tru3 only says that Ghost Face is top 3 because most of the time he plays agaisnt survivors who Self Care against his anti healing build ). I would place him around 7th place on a tier list.

    Him being able to T-bag survivors makes it worth it.

    wait how did he get nerfed ?

  • I'm rank 17 and get 4k's like 40% of the time (on ps4) that said I don't use stalk since it is just a waste he's basically just sneaky stabby killer. I have to use offerings to make the stalk time usable since gens can get rushed and completed if I stalk someone to completion. He'll get nerfed soon and that day is the day I won't play the game since his power is a teeny bit under powered. I fear at rank 10-1 I'll probably just run into meta survivors and I bet my opinion will go from "he's top 3 only because the rest suck" to "I wasted my money with this game yet again".

    He's pretty good, definitely stronger if you stalk (especially with add-ons)

  • LentoroLentoro Member Posts: 140

    He is very solid. I think he's top 6. Stalking is still a crucial part of his gameplan and a very effective one. Also, I think that his "nerf" was not really a nerf. Sure, his stalking addons were nerfed but they weren't even his best ones and in return the creepy sound that he made while in night shroud got removed and that was a very solid buff which, in my opinion far outweighs the nerfs. And the continuous stalking and keeping his ability even after getting stunned were pretty stupid and needed to go.

    You have to know when to stalk and when not to stalk. If you're in a position where marking them and downing them would take less time than running the full chase, try to go for the stalk. Otherwise, it's good to go for surprise hits out of stealth. With recovery add-ons, I'd call Ghost Face a high-mid tier killer. Otherwise, just mid tier.

  • ReylaReyla Member Posts: 41

    He's good in that he is functional without add ons, which puts him at least in mid tier. He's tough to judge really because on indoor maps he's a bit of a monster, but on most he's just solid. I'd put him upper mid tier, personally. Top three is Billy and the usual suspects still.

    I'd also say I still think myers is better than him base and has better add ons to compound the issue.

  • meyers stalk is a resource and can't be manually activated and he's much harder to sneak with. He's upper mid since his stalk is awful without add-ons but night shroud makes up for it making him upper mid since his power is okay and passable but with add-ons can do work.

    Easily top 5. Don't know about top 3.

    Stalk is not a waste of time, but shouldn't be your 1st option at all times.

  • yoiyoi Member Posts: 338

    Top 5 are nurse Spirit Freddy Billy and hag. ( Not in order of strenght) he can be 6th thou above huntress unless huntress Is scot zubat or Umbra.

  • ReylaReyla Member Posts: 41

    I don't know I've been over this a few times in my head, which one has the better stealth (btw I agree with stalk being a weakness for myers in a lot of situations). Ghost face has stealth based on his power, and that stealth is better when active, but myers has access to either a 6, 8, 12, or 16m terror radius in T2 for as long as he wants (depending on add ons and perks), but he still has a red stain.

    I think what seals Myers position as being stronger is the fact he can sneak up on three survivors on a gen, T3 and crush a team very quickly. A good Myers can do that fairly often.

    I don't think Ghost face can match that kind of snowball and it makes the difference for me.

    Btw I always include green and below add ons when assessing killer, because you can constantly run them pretty easily, as opposed to purple and pink which require more effort.

    Tru tends to exaggerate how good killers are. GF is good but not top tier.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    GF is high average. He suffers heavily agaibst "Spine Chill". And he got the same map pressure as Leatherface so...
