Not that I don't believe you, but I know sometimes people miss the fact that Killer Instinct during frenzy only works in your terror radius, so it doesn't hurt oblivious people.

no no, i know that, i mean that sometimes the highlight just vanishes entirely without you smacking the person or gets hung up even after you smack someone with frenzy

Is Myers a reasonable character to start playing on? He's so fun, and his gameplay loops seems simple enough.

Just got my first win on myers, definitely sticking with him, so drat fun.

I think best for last and play with your food are decent perks for a starter build as well, and once I get bbq and chili I just need one more decent perk off the blood web and I should be good to go.

If you have doctor, monitor & abuse is fun on him because it shrinks his Evil Within II terror radius to almost nothing.

Michael can run a lot of silly gimmicks that are surprisingly effective. Infinite Tier 3 and one of the addons that boosts your stalk rate is funny. So is taking Scratched Mirror (the addon that lets you see through walls in exchange for always being tier 1) and sending the match to Lery's

Yeah, videos of the infinite tier 3 tombstone myers and the mirror builds definitely influenced my choice of killer.

I really dislike the way hooks work in this game. Had a match where it came down to two people, a Jake and a Steve who was being a clicky clicky trash fire. Steve gets the gate to three bars, I take him out on the hook closest to the gate. Close the nearby hatch, run into Jake lurking and down him too. Pick him up and there are no hooks I can get him to with the one Steve broke. So I drop him and start smacking the broken hook as if to indicate "Don't look at me, I physically can't hook you without you beating me to the gate and I'm not going to give you a free win just because Steve died where he did." Jake crawls away from any hooks and bleeds out

Yellow Moris should really be a default option just for situations like that, but it'll never happen

Okay... who was it?

A lawyer dressed as a horror movie character on a Texas beach said his eccentric actions were just a prank to make people smile.

But it also led to the arrest of Mark Metzger, the Galveston attorney some people saw roaming a local beach in a Michael Myers costume. He was cited for disorderly conduct and released by Galveston police, KTRK reported.

Police received a call Monday about a masked man holding what appeared to be a bloody knife while walking on the beach ahead of Tropical Storm Nicholas, according to The Daily News in Galveston.

Plaything + Retribution is a crazy combination on Trapper. Only problem is that you can't run Ruin with that build, so I have to make do with something like Surge or Pop.

Not letting go of corrupt, that thing is permanently in my Trapper perk set.

Played against a Pinhead today and I just wasn't having fun. The character and concept is just annoying as poo poo to me. Maybe it's something to get used to but the mechanics are just painful to me. It's a slog that ends in either a win or a loss there is really no enjoyment in the match, or close calls, or anything wacky.

It's like being told you get to ride on a rollercoaster but it's just a straight section that goes for a mile at a snails pace.

I agree with these bits, but I feel bad for the Pinheads mostly. Solving the cube in a structure typically makes it pretty safe, the teleport is a double edged sword that hurts pinhead more than the survivors the more experience they have against him.

He seems to me, possibly more than any of the other new killers, immensely weak to the hold W meta. Against good survivors missing your chain in a chase means you've lost the chase, period. Even so, the chains are not as guaranteed as they seem at first glance due to geometry and self breakage, they're not even guaranteed to give a hit on some medium safe loops. The cube just doesn't slow the game down enough.

Like the trickster before feeling like a worse Huntress, the cenobite feels like a worse deathslinger, unless you're using the damage iri for the chain which is a gamechanger and makes it a legitimate threat.

Or later, later's fine.
But now would be good.



I've played 5 games recently, starting right after the rank reset / 500k bonus (my first games in a couple of months). Mediocre loss, bad loss, game where I kill everyone before they got a single gen within Tinkerer range, insanely bad loss where every survivor was doing clip-through-the-wall-grade hugging on loops, insanely bad loss where everyone was running some perk where the gens blew up and blinded me when I kicked them.

Kinda feels like they somehow made matchmaking worse, because not only were none of these remotely close or enjoyable, 4 of the 5 games took like 10 minutes to matchmake each (as killer). Not great!

I'm really getting sick of dead hard. It's so much better than the other exhaustion perks to the point you should just expect everyone to have it at a certain point, and be pleasantly surprised if they don't. I'm not really sure how to fix it, maybe reduce the length of the dash and make it just a dodge move that just lets you gain a little distance instead of prolonging the chase another 15 seconds or so.

I swear a big dead hard nerf and a small decisive strike nerf (make the protection wear off more quickly) would tilt the balance so far in the right direction.

Thereís only ever 1 or 2 Unbreakables and Decisives in the lobby but you have to play as if all 4 have them or you risk getting completely blown out. And thatís the real power, it benefits even the survivors who donít run it.
