Personal opinion, his gameplay is just straight up boring. Yes, he is amazing at chases and he can shut down pallets extremely well (done it myself), but for me, there's just not enough in his ability to be entertaining.
Because he's bugged like hell right now.
I love Clown and I do wish more people would play him. When I'm Survivor and I see Clown I'm happy because I know a good Clown will always be able to catch me and I can learn from how they're doing it. Slowing down Survivors at loops is a great ability because it makes Survivors fear being slowed, they're afraid they can't keep doing the loop. That's really simple of course but that's half the game right there, chasing into loops.
When I play Clown I always have a good time because he's constantly laughing, gets a hit, laughs triumphantly, gets stunned by pallet, laughs in pain, it's fun for me.
@WaffleFalafel Getting to skip Paley loops arguably the worst thing a killer has to consistently deal with isn't fun?
i dont really like him due to his lack of map pressure.
thats also a reason of why i hate the cannibal, there is nothing special about him, its just the basic mechanics.
almost every one else has something to put pressure on the survivors, but clown doesnt rly have that.
its like, your in a chase, your affected. your outside the chase and your perfectly save.
I use The Clown and he is the only Killer that can cover an area with his Tonic. Also, he lunges pretty fast with his Madame Butterfly, therefore I use "Sloppy Butcher" with him, to be effective both up close and far with his tonics. Above all, he is one of my top picks for living Killers and the other two that I use is "The Wraith", and "The Spirit".
