So my opinion is that the totem placements for some maps should change. It is very infuriating as a killer when you decide to run a perk that involves a hex totem, and it is immediately taken out before the first gen is done due to its obvious position.
A prime example of this is Crotus Prenn Asylum's realm. There are a couple of totems that are just sitting out in the middle of the field with absolutely no coverage that any survivor can see. There is another realm I can't think of currently but the Asylum definitely has the worst totem placement.
Now I'm not saying make them impossible to find. A recent good example of placement is Lery's Memorial Institute. It is hidden just enough that you have to legitimately stop and look, or face the right way. But not hard enough to where you can't find it at all because it's in this one location no one would ever imagine. This would entice people to utilize the perks "Detective's Hunch" more (because it is a very good perk IMO) and "Small Game". I'd rather have my totems taken out that way every match than seeing the typical survivor running the typical Meta perks spot my totem "a mile away" because of its horrible placement.
*Edit: Meant to say entice, not insight.
