My Thoughts in Freddy from a Survivor PoV
My thoughts on Freddy.
So mind you, I've strictly played survivor because to hell with that que time lol.
It's kinda hard to pin down where he stands. The reason for this being that I get rocks for teammates frequently on the PTB. I say rocks and not potatoes because at least a potato can power a lightbulb if hooked up to one right. Simply put, I've not had a match yet where I've simultaneously had decent teammates and a decent Freddy. It's usually one or the other.
Now then THAT SAID, I feel like Dream Snares are underrated. I will agree, they're not terrific, but I don't feel like they deserve the flak I've seen a lot of youtubers and streamers give them. If you're a smart Trapper or Hag, you know already exactly what to do with these and should theoretically have a decent time with them.
Dream pallets are also an interesting story. It becomes a memory game and people that don't have a good memory are going to suffer greatly at the hands of the pallets and instantly call for their nerfing. I am curious as to the point of the aura reading granted by the rarer versions of these add-ons? But I suppose it's a good strategy for the first hit. Beyond that though it's kinda a worthless tack on.
The generator teleport is one of his larger weaknesses. It looks great. Terrific concept. Takes too damn long, has too many trumpets signaling "Hey dipshits! I'm coming here!", and the cooldown for it seems ridiculous. Either keep the cooldown and channel time the same and reduce the amount of signaling that Freddy is coming, or keep all those trumpets blaring of Freddy's arrival but shorten the channel time and/or the cooldown.
