A few days has passed, what do you think about Executioner's strength ?
Personally I don't think he's great.
His cages are only situationally usefull, since he sends the survivor as far away from him as possible, most of the time there are survivors around the cage, since they tend to stay away from the killer (duh), which makes it so oftentimes the rescue happens almost immediately, eliminating the whole pressure you'd normally get from a hook. It is nice that he can ignore perks like DS, but again ... It's situational.
His finisher is a nice time-saver, but ultimately isn't that important.
His main power is obviously the ranged attack, which is really good in theory, as it can punish vaults and pallet drops, but isn't too usefull for much besides that as it's slow and telegraphed, making using it while looping rather hard. When you take into account his enormous cooldown after missing, it really is a risk that's not worth taking most of the time.
How do you feel about the 2nd Shape ?
