>The Doctor got nerfed into the ground, what the fuck are you smoking?
What are YOU smoking? From his original release he has received the following improvements:
-Removed the slowdown when switching stances
-Added a disabling effect to his shock
-Made the skillcheck randomized addon part of his base kit
-Made snap out of it take longer
-Increased base shock range
-Decreased the charge speed penalties from his range extenders
-Reduced the speed penalty for treatment mode
-Made snap out of it trigger skillchecks
Lots of big buffs, but he still remained trash because his power is just inherently weak and they refuse to change the things that actually make his power bad.
Same deal with Trapper and Wraith, both got a bunch of buffs but none that actually fixed the core issues with them.
>But they extended the range of his lunge huehuehuehuehuehu
Never happened. Doctor has always had the standard lunge range.
Nurse, Hag, Huntress, and Tier 1 Shape were the only Killers to ever have below normal lunge range.
>Gave him a speed boost to counter Sprint Burst
>Now shits on people who don't use Sprint Burst
He always had that speed boost, in the form of the Windstorm addon.
They made it part of his base kit and changed the Windstorm addons to do something else.
And no, its not enough to counter SB. Survivors have plenty of time to dash away to a safe spot.
Wraith is still hot garbage, better than he was back in beta, but still just a noob stomper that gets shit on by competent Survivors.
Basically the problems with those 3 killers are as such:
-Shock doesnt disable long enough and takes too long to charge up to actually do its job as an anti-loop tool
-Putting Survivors into Madness 3 wastes far, far, far more of the Doctor's time that it does the Survivor's, as it only takes like 12 seconds to get out of
-Madness isnt even worth raising as all of its effects are just cheap little tricks that only work agains noobs and no competent player ever falls for them
-Static field slows you down, making it counterproductive as a searching tool
-As you said, way too dependent on addons, needs v.rare/u.rare addons just to be mediocre
-Traps are too easy to see, avoid, and disarm
-Even in the event you do get somebody retarded enough to walk into one they can get out of it right away if they get lucky with RNG
-Traps take way too fucking long to set up for way too little reward
-Cloak is still not even remotely invisible, you would have to be blind not to see him tottering towards you from a mile away
-Decloaking's duration and slowdown gives Survivors more than enough time to make distance, making sneaking up on Survivors pointless in the first place
-Power is effectively unusable in chases unless you get a retard who will just sit there as you cloak/decloak for the speed boost
