Did they remove the counterplay against nemesis?

I swear you used to be able to crouch at windows and pallets and not get hit by the whip but I'm getting hit through pallets and windows. Did they change this and no one's talking about it or am I insane?

    Just went to custom and Nemesis can't hit a survivor crouching behind window and most structures (tables / fences). He is going to hit you over pallet if he is tier I, if he is tier II pallet is going to break instead.

    It's possible they changed it. I don't really play Nemesis, nor do I play against him super frequently so I can't say for certain. I will say I got sniped at a safe loop on Toba Landing yesterday in a way I didn't even think was possible, so who knows. Hitboxes have also been extra terrible as of late I've noticed with hits that don't physically land injuring you and vice versa so maybe something with that was changed

    Nemesis can hit you with tier 2 and 3 tentacle over all pallets and most windows, but not all of them (Backwater Swamp maps are notable for their weird windows that make it impossible to hit past them). The tentacle has a series of finger-like hitboxes that extend in a downward arc, and if one of them hits you then the power connects. They also linger for a fraction of a second, allowing Nemesis to 'drag' the tentacle sideways.

    It's quite possible that something has bugged out with his power, but I've not noticed it myself.

    That part about pallets is incorrect. Depending on how he places himself he can hit you over a pallet. If he tries to hit over the lower side of the pallet, you can't crouch it (unless your far enough to the side). It doesn't matter whether or not he is in tier 1. If he tries to hit you over the higher side and you crouch, he will always hit the pallet (though he won't break it in tier 1).

    It depends where you are, if nemesis is tier I, he will injure you even if you are crouching behind highest part of the pallet, but pallet is going to get destroyed instead as tier II

    Crouching reduces how much of the hitbox can hit you and makes it more difficult to be hit but you can still be hit if their aim is right on target.
