Boon totems can be good for the game.
Even though circle of healing could use some tweaks (not making it useless killer mains) I feel Boon totems can work well in dbd. But the problem is that they have been implemented poorly. A few changes to how they work and/or changes to circle of healing we can create a stone fair but balanced perk.
And frankly I'm happy for the implementation of boons. It can (and has) changed the game up, albeit in an unbalanced way currently, and it greatly helps makes totems worth doing and incentives survivors to do them, which to my knowledge what everyone wanted right?
All in all Boon totems csn definitely work just need some changes now to make it better.
