He still goes into a tantrum if you try to rev repeatedly and not commit to it and they still get insta-downed during the tantrum. So he could still guard the hook just not as well.It's probably not going to hurt Bubba's camping potential that much, Insidious ambushing is still an option for him.
Called it BTW. Found my post.
Of course, I thought they would just nerf instant saw. They had far worse plans.I'd bet my left nut that they'll remove all instances of Instant Saw add-ons for Billy (yes, even Primer Bulb + Spark Plug) what worries me is what other nerfs they intend. Nerfs that will -of course- happen before any kind of nerfs to repeatedly used Suvivor perks or addressing gen speed. The day this happens might finally be the day that I uninstall this POS for good. Fuckfaces insist that Instant Saw is busted and I will agree that it's strong but it's not busted. You can still loop Billy and fuckfaces that can 360 have no issue with it (but will still cry about it so it will get nerfed anyway).
The only thing that might make me stay is if they buff the shit out of Leatherface to compensate. I'm a huge fan of the TCM franchise and even try to do the Leatherface chainsaw dance whenever I can when I win in-game.
I've played a lot with Billy. He was my main for a long-ass time until Legion came out and was subsequently gutted and then re-work Freddy happened. The difference between Instant Saw and not using it is night and day. It will 100% help you get them at a pallet or a window that they otherwise 100% would have got if you weren't using the add-ons.
I am so pissed right now. I am honestly pissed. I put hundreds of hours into Billy. It took me a long while to figure out how to best play him and he was the first killer where I felt powerful playing. Here's a killer with map control, could instant down, punish hook rescues, slug like a champion, and could counter specific loops. Oh no, the French faggots just had to nerf him. They seem to have a mantra as of late that no killer can have map control without the threat of a massive cool down to using your power. Which is what they did to Nurse and Freddy is inherently designed that way.
I started using this guy when the top killers were: Nurse, Billy, and Huntress. Even when Spirit was added, Freddy got re-worked, and Ghostface came and was buffed to counter Object of Obsession. Hillbilly STILL wasn't top 3. Everyone would agree that the top 3 were: Nurse, Spirit, and Freddy. Spirit and Freddy being in interchangeable spots. Then came Billy and maybe Ghostface or weirdos that insist Huntress or Myers are up there.
Here come the faggots who say "Fuck you. We're nerfing him. Fuck you. We don't care what you think."
I noticed this little tidbit in the blog post:
So, RIP to Instant Saw too. French fucking faggots. They're not even really French, they're the niggers of the French. I like the genuine French. There's many great writers and artists. But the Quebecois are fucking niggers. Just to rub salt in the wound they rationalize the nerfs by saying:Like The Cannibal, we’ve done a pass on The Hillbilly’s add-ons and brought them up to date with the rest of the roster. Once again, we can’t list all of them here, but we look forward to seeing what you can do with them!
" The goals behind this change is to add a small drawback to misusing the chainsaw, and to add a bit more depth to the chainsaw with resource management. "
Are you fucking serious? "Add a bit more depth?" Are you fucking insane?
Yes, using the saw to transverse the map is easy (except indoor maps or Haddonfield obviously) but using the saw to down a player that isn't fucking braindead is fucking hard. It can be insanely frustrating if you miss once and they get away to their loops/pallets. You lose so much time and time is of the essence.
This is one example of how hard it can be to follow them and nail them with the chainsaw:
Edit: BTW, I had to use Instant Saw add-ons to make the rev time much shorter (by roughly a second). If I wasn't using these add-ons it would have been even harder and the survivor may have gotten away.
These nigga's will do all kinds of bullshit. Hug trees, mis-direct you when they're heading towards a vault, spin constantly while running towards you to take advantage of the fucked FOV killers have. This nigga had NOTHING to work with. No pallets, windows, butt-buddies willing to tank the hit. Nothing. And he was still able to waste that much precious time and almost get away. But oh wait, the Niggers state that they "need to add a bit more depth to the chainsaw with resource management. " This needs more depth and more punishment for "mis-use."
I played several matches tonight in memoriam of my main. They fucking massacred my boy. If they do the same shit to Freddy I am seriously done.
RIP Hillbilly. 2016-2020.
