Using his power is a detriment. Being an m1 killer is much more effective than using his chains. The passive and teleport are good.
Would have to strongly disagree. Using his chains at the right moment and angle can get you a hit at most if not all loops. Its not easy to do but its definitely possible. Not to mention it's also useful against the "hold m1 meta", if I get pallet stunned and see them running, I immediately use the chains to slow them down while I break the pallet. And if its an unsafe/ semi safe loop and they stay, you can get them stuck away from the safety of the pallet and get a hit. it's only bad if you keep spamming it at the wrong moments
I don't know if actually reflected on the holding W counter. If someone runs away in the open and you use your chains and hit him you still lose distance in the process.
Nobody needs help with unsafe loops, they are already unsafe.
Pinhead loses distance in this Hold W meta actually. This is because of the second to go into the portal, the 3 seconds to destroy chains, and the second to come out of that stun. This results in a net loss of distance.
He loses distance against Hold W. He also gains less benefit on loops than Clown, despite how much mechanical skill and accuracy is required for his power and the fact it can only hit one Survivor at a time.
I disagree, but i do hope hes like trickster in the vein that he receives a substantial buff. Hes quite lackluster.
His power is literally a net loss if they hold w and the chains break off so fast with the environment. Let's not forget 2nd/3rd can miss
Which is why its better to do it when they are in the open. Obviously constantly trying to chain them will just hurt you more than you gain but picking the right moments to do it is when it can really help
In the open it is still a net loss in distance
