Questionable Nightmare changes
So I just played a few games as the Nightmare and came to a conclusion, that his power is actually hurts him now.
Lets look at the stats. Basic time to put 1 snare and get your 4.6 speed back is around 2-2.5 seconds. While you're putting a snare, your speed decreases from 4.6(115%) m.s to 4.0(100%)m.s. While survivor stepping on the snare slows only for 2 seconds, and only for 5%(100%>95%).
So does his power really works for him now? You can just run away while he is placing them and get a good ammount of distance. Some of the pallets where he was really good at chasing, now survivor can just run through the snares and you never gonna catch them, because you're not gaining any distance.
And don't need to tell me, that you need to use them strategically, putting them at the places where survivor could run. There is no point in doing that, I can just play Trapper and do this thing better.
