He will be a worse Clown. He is already good if you know how to play him. Do NOT change him
@Peanits said that survs that are hit by Freddy are instantly put in the dream world.
This changes everything,tbh.
Just one garbage? Not even two?
Yes, this is the case.
One killer mains garbage is another killer mains treasure
I know, I'm so excited for him and I'm a survivor main. 😍
Now freddy is good for everyone lmao, he is so good that he has to wait 7 seconds to hit u, omg best killer ever oh my oh yes its happening, lol.
the new freddy will be awesome, good work BHVR!
Freddy goes in and out of invisibility during those 7 seconds in set times meaning if you're skilled enough you can easily use that to mindgame and get a free hit.
They made him simplier to understand and play, but making something noob friendly doesn't mean it's good, far from it @Penny
I don't mean to interject, but mindgaming against a 7 second invulnerability period is not a free hit. That's just a hit. You put in the work and you earned it, and the survivor had ample opportunity to avoid it.
I just saw it on my youtube, and came to the forums to see everyones thoughts, and he is decent. Definitely not top tier, but upper mid tier.
Please change him he needs it
Clown would be more garbage than him. Because Clown ONLY has the gass.
Clown is in a sad state because of it, the ability is buggy as hell, doesn't last long enough, reload is insane without addons and he has no mobility, slow down or map pressure.
Freddy will have the hindered effect on top of the mobility for pressure and the micro sleeps for stealth.
If anything Freddy is a pseudo-Pig with movement and hinderence.
After Leatherface I hope Clown gets looked at next.
I'm still annoyed by the sleeping mechanics.
There's 0 downsides to being asleep if you aren't currently being chased.
There's way too much opportunity to wake up without penalty, both in skill checks and with the clock nonsense.
IT TAKES 60-90 SECONDS. If they wake up from a clock, they can literally do a full generator without sleeping.
This is the same crap we got with Plague and Ghostface. STOP PUTTING KILLER'S POWERS 100% IN SURVIVOR CONTROL.
i didnt know about that, it's true it changes a lot, but still looks week
You spelled weak wrong:) Also we see if he's good when
He comes out.
I wish he still had some action speed penalty, maybe at 25% while asleep, not addon based... Overall seems pretty decent.
I've always enjoyed freddy. Hes decent at mind gaming and with the right add ons hes pretty beast. I'm indifferent about the rework, really.
Current Freddy is fun when A) there's only 2 survivors left or B) you're running an endgame build and the stars align in your favor (huge gamble).
I won't have to watch as a survivor completes an objective / heals / unhooks in my face (boring and frustrating), I won't have to wait 7 seconds to hit a survivor (beyond boring), and I will have a power that can help me in chases beyond a (boring) "free hit".
If the snares/teleporting/pallet addon aren't complete and utter abysmal garbage then the Freddy rework will guaranteed be more interesting than what we have at current.
@mistar_z You don’t understand Clown at all. He’s far from garbage. Like Freddy, so few use Clown properly. Clown is tremendously better at area control and slowing the game down than most realise. Which is strange to me because it seems so obvious the number of things you can do with a projectile that leaves a cloud of noxious gas.
So I'm gonna be honest, I've been maining Freddy since he came out a while ago. I have always been a fan of this killer and through all the buffs and nerfs. The thing with any good killer is knowing the right tools for him to use. I personally feel like with the right amount of time and practice Freddy is 100 percent a top tier killer. Jumping in fresh? No he's a hard killer to learn. Use the right perks and add-on combinations and just how survivors move around maps, freddy is unstoppable, I feel like he's in a good spot honestly and while I'm excited to see the rework I hope this doesn't change Freddy at his core and make him an easier killer to play cause then it won't be as satisfying to get a 4k. I still can pull those off btw with this version of Freddy. I get bullied sometimes but when I learn how they work, I dominate well enough and excel. I support the decision, just please don't hurt my boy too bad.
@DudeDelicious The new freddy will be better than clown in loops against sleeping survivors, he just place snares as he runs around and if the survivor goes for a second lap around the loop, they'll be permanently snared and an easy target. Snares has no cooldown, slow seems to last longer than intoxication, forces medium vaults (something that ain't working with intoxication from my experience as a clown player).
Ok that will make Freddy op but are they gonna change the power than because whats the point of it?
The problem with Freddy is that he's so absurdly OP that it's not fair to survivors. He was the first killer i ever played and once i knew how to play the game and i came back to him, i was astonished at how op he is. I felt so bad for the survivors.
But all these changes are STUPID.
All you need to do to fix Freddy is take away the red auras. That way, if he loses you, he loses you. As it is now, when you're asleep you glow white but the second you leave his sight, you become a red aura he can read anywhere.
THAT is the problem
So keep with white glow but ditch the red aura and boom, Freddy is fair.
Also... If u hear the song he's on you... They could expand the radius of the song a bit
One thing I hate about new freddy : waking up by failing skillchecks.
What's the point of even being asleep if you can wake up so easily and nullify his power...
Freddy is OP against low skilled survivors who can't loop. Yes current Freddy can see auras but he's also easily loopable. So if you can loop then you have an advantage because you can bait him into long chases. At least the new freddy will have some anti-looping ability and then add to that his ability to teleport to gens and it sounds pretty OP.
