    Since lots of people were discussing squid bubble on the small MCInfected update thread, why not bring the discussion here.
    I personally don’t have a problem with it. Except for the times you can’t go into the bubble as survivor to kill the squid.

    Do you think squid bubble should be changed? If so why, and what should it be changed to?

    It should be changed. Other survivors should be able to do something about it. One click, boom, dead survivor. It's like D.va's ultimate in Overwatch. No skill.

    In my opinion the squid bubble can ruin a whole game of a survivor (Trapping them near or practically in spawn)and I respect it is hard to master but once you do it is easy kills as you can stop people running from a fight if they may be a low ranks.
    I have one memory on Goron city where a squid bubble blocked the doorway and I couldn't leave this may have been funny but things like the bouncing around can cause you to be either launched into infected, oom or in the void
    I think if a survivor has less than a certain ammount of health/healing they should be able to and leave a bubble as I dont fine squids a problem as commander or working with your rank 1 - 25
    Just my opinion don't hate on me if you disagree <3

    I don't like that hoards of infected can come into the bubble
    That shouldn't be a thing in my opinion

    Squid bubble just needs to reset fall damage when you hit the edge of it so you don’t take like 80 hearts.
    Make it so you can shoot into it

    Nerf the shit out of WW howl 5 because blindness, weakness, and 3 attack dogs for 8 seconds (unaffected by blast shield) with a 6 block radius is much more bullshit

    First of all wolves shouldn’t need 3 hits from an iron sword to kill. Back to the actual topic, you have to remember that squid bubble is the only thing that makes squid actually good. While the armor is decent, the only other ability that it has is ink blaster, which was absolute trash the last time I mained squid. My honest opinion is that while squid bubble is pretty good, it’s not necessarily broken, and is really the only thing that makes the kit any good or unique.

    Then just replace bubble with a different ability that is less one-sided and controversial, but still strong.

    I actually came up with an idea to change the bubble. So instead of the round annoying bubble that pushes you back, there is a border / cage of class spawned around the squid user. The border would work like a cage, no one and nothing can go trough it. Any survivors and or infected that are in the bubble are trapped there untill the bubble disappears. During the bubble the survivors in it get slowness 1 and if the bubble path is lvl 4/5 slowness 1/2 and weakness 1. These statistics probably need some adjusting, but it's a rough outline.

    Now this looks almost the same as the old bubble. The thing is that because there is a 'wall' instead of the bubble, you don't get pushed around by the border.

    Squid isn’t great but it’s annoying and if we had to change everything that annoyed people in MCI it would take a while. People have complained about turkey since the dawn of time yet we’ve all learned to live with it (to an extent). Kill the squid the bubble goes away.

    People have learned to live with turkey? It's just as horrifically powerful as it was when it first launched, the only real difference is that it didn't one-shot back then, nor was there any grass in maps where they could not be hit.

    Everyone has been saying to "just kill the squid" but there's no way to kill when most the time there's other infected while you have weakness. You're practically trapped the entire 7 seconds getting constantly hit.

    Maybe squid bubble can act as a "repulser" and when used it acts like a kb grenade and launches all the survivors backwards

    I find that using juggernaut is an effective way of stopping this

    I have never complained about a kit, here or on SG. Squid bubble is not "annoying"; it is unconscionable. One aimless click from someone in your radius, and you are paralyzed, thrown about, and at the mercy of your surroundings for however many seconds. Automatic death if near void or no food.

    They have NOT "learned to live with" turkey. (For the record, I've never had a problem with turkey.) In fact, it just received a nerf, proving that people did not "learn to live with" it.

    Your flippancy aside (awesome moderating, btw), you're basically saying that the abilities don't matter because you can always just kill it. Does that really make sense to you??

    Ok I think the one thing you are missing is how hard it is to even land a good squid bubble. The times I have tried to pull someone into the void with a high level squid bubble I find it pretty hard (sidenote, I never understood why the bubble gets bigger as you level it up since it is harder to use, but whatever). My point is most the time you won’t find yourself being killed by a squid bubble pulling you into the void, and it takes much more skill to pull off a kill like that if you play squid often. Also like hypris said, squid really doesn’t have anything else going for it except for it’s squid bubble ability.

    The only squids I usually find myself losing fights to are those who have squid bubble 1 or 2 and have infected backing them up. The bubble can mess you up if other infected enter and start punching you against the wall, but if it’s just the squid it’s pretty easy to kill.

    If you have no food you can still outlive a squid bubble, I would rather take on a squid than a baby zombie chasing me with no food left.

    That may be. All I know is that squid bubble never fails to get me into the void if I'm near it, or, if I have no food, I can never regain my health after getting pummeled, if there is any other infected around, which there always is.

    I don't care if it's the only thing good about the kit. You don't give something an apocalyptic ability just because there's nothing else good about it.
