    No one had problems with Turkey back when Para WubWub and me were one of the few people to main the kit. Nowadays lots of people have the class unlocked (which I think is a good thing, Imo more classes should be more accessable, like Leprachaun, Eastern Bunny and Scarecrow). The higher usage rates mean that we have more interactions between the kit so more opinions can be formed about it. And if a lot of the people feel like the kit is unbalanced or ruining gameplay, there should be something done about it.

    Since I'm here now I would also like to give my opinion about the class. Although I can't give my full opinion since don't have the kit unlocked, I feel like the kit does need a change. Not do I just see a high usage rate with the bubble, I also see a fairly low useage rate of the ink blaster. Which was rather surprising for me. Because when the kit first came out it looked like a better version of the turkey cannon ability.
    To get back to the bubble problem, I do think it needs a change. You get weakness I, or even weakness II if the user has Squid bubble 5. Which causes you to not be able to kill jnfected efficiently. But killing is your only option since you're trapped and usually also horded by infected.
    I also recognise the situation @foxilvery describes. On maps with high difference / void squids can easily screw you over with how she says it 'just one click'. In these occasions riotshield also doesn't work, something I found kinda strange. Your only save bet is flashing away. But a perk like flash is usually unlocked later in the game so as a 'younger' player you don't really have any good answers to the ability. On top of that flash a one-time-use item while the ability refreshes ever 25 seconds.

    I still don't understand your first paragraph (turkey isn't a good comparison because everyone knew from day one it was op), we have had enough interactions on squid to know. That players have no problem with the ink blaster, it's so much more on the bubble (which is used less than ink blaster, but so much more noticeable). There's been so many ways the bubble has been used to the point that there are such "combos" with the bubble used towards other infected kits. aka skeleton, guardian, titan, etc. I think we've had more interactions than squid mains give us credit for.

    I find it hypocritical how it's literally a direct counter to the prestige perk riot shield that has every use of it negated to the bubble. I think there should be some way to escape the bubble with riot shield, but not simply by walking out.

    The thing about the bubble that I don't like that doesn't make sense is that infected can come through but survivors can't. Only other squids should be able to go through squid bubbles.
