She was a main for me on console.. Rest In Peace.
Since the nerf I think I've gone against a nurse maybe 5 or 6 times total in ranked matches, and I've escaped every time. Before the nerf, I had about a 50/50 escape chance against a good non-omega nurse.
Juking a non-omega pre-nerf nurse was not impossible. I could do it semi-reliably, and I normally only reach rank 6 before reset. Post-nerf, I'm not concerned in the least when I hear the nurse scream. As someone else said, I know it will be an easier-than-average game.
There's really only one fix needed to make nurse fun again (for both sides). They need to revert the basekit nerfs and keep the add-on changes. (Change the add-ons that affect recharge time, of course.)
Lets see some updated stats please @Peanits whats her pick rate and kill rate on pc and counsel and in red ranks. @Almo has stated her kill rate is 43.9% for all platforms which is a 3 to 4% drop from the numbers pre rework.
Man, I look over at her everyday with all her nice perks and cosmetics and think back to the days of having her as a viable character on console.
I think just buffing her blinks recovery rate by like .2 seconds each would be fine. She might need additional buffs on all other platforms aside from PC as well since she does considerably less on those platforms. I have yet to see a Nurse in Red ranks on xbox who can get more than 1 kill.
Yeah, so I got some months away from DBD. I used to be a skilled console Nurse main in ps4, something i was proud of, given its a console Nurse. And just the basekit, no addons never.
And them, today I got the idea to play with her and got this pathetic killer were one of the addons makes her just move as a f1 killer with no power. Lets say... i felt punched in the face when i got that overkilling cooldown.
The result were as predicted by the Devs: a weak killer, everybody escapes. I'll just think if i may keep on spending my money in such a game that makes that kind of thing with a (once upon a time) perfect killer.
The feeling is like beeing abused. She was the best. Now, idk if she is better than old Freddy. Just very disappointing, and very offensive with the Nurse mains.
Changing her ridiculous addons? Ok. But her basekit... unforgivable. Giving cooldown to blinks? Shame on you, Behaviour.
Because nurse could deal with swf and then they gutted her (still can just harder now) can’t make as many mistakes
Smartest comment I've seen in my life
I miss the thrill of playing against a good nurse. Sometimes you were able to out maneuver her and sometimes you weren’t. It was rare to find those killers who could really do damage with her.
Because she is awful at low - mid ranks. She's a free escape when unskilled player playing her.
ok you made my day
They've given up. I thought it was obvious.
Nurse is still the best killer in the game....
I think I still agree with that. She was always the highest skill floor and ceiling as well. Her skill floor just also became higher with the nerfs as she now has more nuances to her power.
She is still the best but she became tedious, honestly she lost everything that made her fun, sure you are still a killing machine but you want to off yourself half the trial.
She sure is good against newbies.
Agreed. She became so unfun after her rework and I don't even think it was necessary.
Lol dbd forums are something else
Uhh what? I know many Rank 1 nurses that have absolutely no issue with her current state. Fact is; nurse is still an S tier killer even with the cooldown.
Well they ALL have issues with her current state, but they accept it, because BHVR went silent about it for more than half a year now.
If she's still S tier and in the top 3 killers after a nerf.. then there's nothing to complain about.
In practice she really isn't that good if for nothing else all of her game breaking bugs that can permanently disable her 2nd blink or her power entirely or any of the nonsensical dead zones such as at one point the entire corn fields on the farm maps.
I'm one of those infamous 1k hours nurse mains and i think she dropped to A-tier simply because being a walking bug and having her base power crippled.
How much hours do you got on nurse if i may ask? I got ~1100.
you will be surprised, but there are still amazing good nurses out there. and i see them pretty often, the nerf was necessary she is stupidly strong and can ignore every survivor defense. she didnt need to exist to begin with, i dont know why they did it. a killer that if used properly there is 0 chance for the survivor to make it, a good nurse of course, becasue line of sights are just something that may work sometiems on certian maps but dont pretend like if that is the counter because is not.
The devs re often wrong about basekit changes, look at PTB billy and Nurse. That is why I would be concerned if they ever considered Spirit.
Nurse was never popular on Xbox because of the way you had to play her, as well as the lag that comes with her effects.
I know, right? People there think Nurse is still anywhere near playable against survivors with half a brain. :D
As a new post nerf nurse main she was definitely hard to learn but I made of my mind that I was gonna play her until I got good with her. I’ve only been playing nurse for a couple months. Didn’t have a single hour played as killer I have maybe 100 hours on nurse and went from 20 to 1 in three months. She maybe a top tier killer but the ridiculous add-ons and fatigue to much. The reason you don’t see nurse as much anymore is she’s way to damn buggy to play. To many dead zones in maps can’t attack after blinks, getting stuck inside objects because you didn’t charge blink long enough to blink through it. Why would anyone want to endure those bugs to play nurse. I noticed a huge difference in nurse after the 4.0.0 update. There’s not a lot of nurse mains anymore but but I could tell a difference. The only reason I went from 20 to rank 1 so fast is match making has been busted for that long. As for me I will continue to main nurse imo she requires the most luck and skill to play
