Freddy is not OP
Freddy is an amazing killer right now all thanks to his new rework (proof the devs are capable of good changes to the game).
People tend to complain about him due to these recurring points:
- His lunge is broken
- He has little to no counter play and is too strong with snares
- He takes no skill to play
- His gen regression capabilities are too strong
"His lunge is broken" The reason his lunge seems broken is because of his smaller weapon and killer model size. It is the same lunge as every other killer.
"He has no counter play and is too strong with snares." There is counter play, and would include you making sure you stay awake as much as possible because that is when you suffer from his effects. If you are asleep and in a chase with a snare-using Freddy drop a pallet early to avoid the m2 spam.
"He takes no skill to play" Yes he does, spamming m2 doesn't immediately win the game for him because if a survivor is awake he has to chase like a normal m1 killer with no power. Freddy players have to know for sure when to commit their teleport and constantly use it to fake a teleport. Even then, it still takes quite a bit of skill to play killer especially at higher ranks.
"His gen regression capabilities are too strong" Are they really? If you work together with your team (who is hopefully cooperative enough to wake everyone up) to stay awake then you should not be affected by most of his gen regression penalties. The real gen regression ability is the dream projection (the teleport) combined with pop, that can be annoying but even then that can be worked around by simply working on multiple generators.
What do you think, do you think that Freddy is in a great spot or is "OP PLZ NERF"?
