Freddy is OP

While there are more powerful killers like hillbilly nurse or spirit freddy stands out because of how little skill required to win and how powerful he is. If you cant play freddy let me some it up if the survivor starts looping you press m2 and set a speed trap. Now dont worry cause this doesnt slow you down at all. Now just loop thiem and force a wasted pallet or them to run and likely get hit. his gameplay is braindead and his gen slowing skill is also probably only second to hillbilly(how actually takes skill) He needs a rework or a major nerf.

    Freddy is by no means overpowered,but i do agree that he's very easy to play and get good result as and very very boring to play against just like clown.

    Wouldn't mind if they would change something so there's more skill involved on his part,but it's highly unlikely that he's going to receive major changes to his power any time soon anyway because there are way more killers currently that would need some buffs/reworks.

    I thought a long time that freddys rework was nice, but after some time playing and vsing him became pretty stale and boring. Additionally i agree that he needs little skill to be played to his full potential, especially in comparison to killers like billy and nurse.

    I would love to see a buff to snares and pallets with a slowdown while setting and some change to his dream world. I don't know if oblivious isn't too powerful for a passive effect.

    You got a fan right here. Keep it going!

    PS: I can apply extreme pressure as Clown on any map. My perks are: Bloodhound, Iron Maiden, Unnerving Presence and Fire Up.

    The only thing I want changed with Freddy is to have an extra clock on the map. It’s such a pain in the butt to run across the entire map to wake up.

    What skill does ds require what skill does bt require all the best survivor perks require no skill flashlights are bugged out most of the time so they require no skill the only things that require any skill from survivors is looping and skill checks

  • OniWantsYourMacaroniOniWantsYourMacaroni Member Posts: 5,897

    Almost no perk in the game requires skill except maybe whispers or dead hard.

    Flashlight saves require preciscion and timing.I've seen soooo many failed flashlight saves because the survivor didn't have the right timing or angle.

    Unfortunately almost everything a survivor can show his skill in is more or less related to chases.

    I respect great loopers and i can instantly tell a rank 1 red veteran from a 18 green but the flashlights im getting blinded looking down looking at walls from behind its ridiculous

    His snare spam is really strong,too strong prob. He can stop loops without much of an effort,which i didn't notice before until I went against a p3 freddy who just snare spammed each loop.

    Hes not OP, hes just mindless to play

    • FInd survivor, drops snares and bloodlust them to death
    • hook
    • Pop a gen
    • repeat

    its not fun or engaging

    Freddy is fine how he is, very powerful but not OP at all, and IMO he isn't boring to go against either

    Discordance + Nurses Calling + Whispers + Save the best for last + Freddy = <3

    Just my personal preference. then again those perks on any killer = win.

    Maybe it's just a case of git divided by gud = win (carry the qq)

  • BigTimeGamerBigTimeGamer Member Posts: 1,752

    Hes not OP, but he is EXTREMELY boring to play against.

    He makes the riveting M1 gameplay take longer and can spam snares at pallets without risk which no other killer can do, thus rewarding bad players.

    I don't know what the devs were thinking, but considering how long he took to be changed to begin with, i guess we are unfortunately stuck with him,

  • BigTimeGamerBigTimeGamer Member Posts: 1,752

    If you think being able to loop a pallet = an infinite then I must say you don't know what you're talking about and are simply ignorant of a killer who objectively has too little risk to his "playstyle"

  • TricksTricks Member Posts: 957

    To me Freddy just feels so much more natural to play than any other killer. I prefer pallet Freddy than Blood Snare Freddy but do extremely well on both. It doesn't feel like I've mastered anything. I dunno the label says "hard" but he feels easy. Hell of a lot easier than the stress fest you get with Nurse.
