    Hey guys, so I know there's been some discussion on this previously but not really a dedicated topic about it. It's just something I've been thinking about, especially in regards to the upcoming updates. Hear me out, tell me what you think, agree / disagree, it's all good. Firstly I'm not saying the game should be just as I imagine it. F13 is a lot of different things to people. For me, it is horror first and foremost. And the way I pictured this game was as a tense, brutal, modern survival horror. F13 has always had some comic relief as is typical of the 80's horror greats, so it's expected that some of that would be in the game too. But with upcoming content like dancing emotes, and everyone running around in bikinis and speedos, I can't help getting a GTA vibe to it all, and what that means for the future of the game. I love GTA, but F13 having elements of that is jarring for me. I think that not everything in a movie translates to a game, they are 2 totally different experiences and what works in one might not in the other. Adding more things in isn't always beneficial, especially if they start taking away from the core idea. I've always wanted F13 to be a game that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and represent Jason as the great cinematic horror character that he is. For me, content like this is starting on a path that I feel could break the immersion for me and subtract from the experience. What do you all think? EDIT: just to be a little more clear, I think there is a reason why Final Chapter is cited as a favourite among hardcore F13 fans. And it's not because of Crispin Glover's dance. Despite its comedic elements, there is a dark and violent nature to that movie, most of all in Jason. It really shows just how terrifying he can be, without even being undead. That's the tone I always wanted this game to be.

    If you attack people with weapons, you are a talentless pussy and you should "kys". If you grab people and do the head punch or single-hand choke, you are a slightly more talented pussy and you need to drink bleach. If you use throwing knives, you are a cheap bastard and you are "autistic" (Dumbest damn "insult" ever). If you use Jason-specific grab kills, you are a try-hard fa**ot and you like to suck your uncle's...well, you get the idea. If you use environmental kills, you are a showoff and you should get cancer. If you block attacks, you are a cheap exploiter and you should perform impossible sexual acts upon yourself. If people escape, you are a noob and apparently a fan of beastiality and you wear your aunt's underwear . If the counselors kill you, you are the worst fucking Jason ever, and all of the other players in the match have been having sex with your mother...for $1. Nobody wants to die in the game, hell, I don't want to die in the game. Unfortunately, the game is engineered to almost ensure a pretty high body count if the person playing Jason does his/her job well. Some kids* just can't handle doing poorly in a game. I would hate to see how some of these people handle real-life problems. Just play the game that is comfortable for you and ignore the stupidity as much as you can. Mute can be a wonderful thing at times. *By kids, I do not mean a certain age group. I mean a mentality. Immature, childish people who lash out at the smallest amount of adversity.

    Unless of course the team killer is working with Jason, which happens a lot. Or if someone has killed a TKer in defence, they would now be punished for it. Or any other side-effects that would punish good / normal players. I've always said that no solution against team killing would be adequate if friendly-fire was kept in public matches. So I was very happy to hear that the devs had finally come around to taking it out entirely. It's happening and it's for the best, people need to just realise and accept that.

    I found out that you only get those sound affects when you're hosting the game.

    My idea is a screen somewhere in the menu that has your statistics. Example: Number of times killed, number of couselors killed, number of escapes, number of health sprays used, etc... I know games like GTA and WoW have similar stat screens. Not only would this be a cool way to check on your gameplay, but it could also help you track your Achievements and Trophies. What do you folks think?

    So I compiled some of the things we already know considering the information currently released. Heres the first image. In this image it is beyond apparent that this is another forest map. So the possibility this is the Lazarus Boat, Manhattan Docks, or The Grendel from Jason X falls short. Now I cannot remember where I read this & I will update as soon as I find the link but I do remember reading that the new map & Jason would correspond with each other. Another thing to remember it does rain in space. Now the second image which I'm not sure how many people actually caught on to this but I'll throw it up along with the box cover of part 5. I believe that this cannot be coincidental. We know because of the blue dot mystery that Gun likes to keep secrets & surprise everyone. Perhaps the revamped website is a mystery or secret hidden in plain sight. Also seeing that the majority of the community is eager to see Roy Burns as Jason Voorhees. I apologize if this has already been discussed I decided to post this in hopes that it's a new way to perceive this.

    *These are simply my opinions and I hope I do not come off too chauvinistic, but feel free to add to it in the comments!* The Signs of a "Good" Jason player To some, as long as the person who plays as Jason kills everyone, it may be fair to say they did everything right. While this may be true, I like to think differently. Jason is completely OP. He has to be. So while some would say getting a 7/7 or 7/8 ratio at the end of a match is a good game, we may be ignoring some aspects of the game (Who the counselors are, whether we are dealing with seasoned players or newbies, etc.) So while some Jasons may get all the counselors. I would say it's hardly fun when they do 7 asphyxiations and trap the hell out of the 4 door car. Here are my opinions on what a true "Good" Jason player does: 1. Varied Kills I love environmental kills: I love throwing Jenny into the fireplaces, Cracking Adam on the back with a boot, or smashing Bugzy against a fence on Higgins Haven. I try to do environmental kills as much as I can, but it's understandable if a environmental kill isn't nearby or a trap went off somewhere. But I don't want to see the same quick head punch decapitations and asphyxiations will spectating. Try to vary it up, not only do you get more XP, but it's entertaining for those who have died. 2. Trapping properly and effectively So you've found the phone fuse. You find the box, but there's at least 4 traps by the phone. While the strategy is understandable, I find it ineffective when Jason wastes all the traps on one objective, when often there are at least 3 to worry. Use 2 traps on the phone instead of 4, trap the gascaps and engine and don't waste traps for the car doors or for windows. It's honestly a better strategy in my opinion. 3. Use Stalk Using stalk is truly to master the art of Jason. It's difficult to master, I am still learning how to properly use the ability. But I have had games where a Jason used stalk and scared the hell out of me. Not only does it make the game more fun, but it is really useful. Use that Stalk more! 4. Exploiting Fear Cut the power! Break the windows! Stare ominously into your victims soul! Exploit their fear! It helps you to find those stealthy counselors. Even the mangled bodies of your victims will scare them! 5. Know Your Victims! 2 minutes into the game and you find two counselors going into two different directions. One is Vanessa and one is AJ, so who are you going after? Obviously, a good Jason player will go after anyone who has a strong repair ability. While those Vanessa and Bugzy players may get on your nerves, it's the quiet one's you have to keep an eye out for! 6. Sound Pings The sound pings may be just a part of the sense ability, but they can be really helpful. If you have good awarness, you'll know exactly if a counselor is close to an objective. This is especially useful for those who play Part 7 Jason, who is often ridiculed for his strengths and weaknesses. So it's useful to pull up the map every so often to keep the objectives in your head. I hope this is informative and not too chauvinistic to read. Please comment for any other suggestions or opinions!

    I have renewed hope/hype. Wes just can't post this on his twitter if we aren't getting the update today.

    Agreed. Nothing said the "Update" or "patch" which seem to be interchangeable at this point, were coming out today. There was some indication something was happening today. I assumed it was news of some sort. There is no way the devs would take the chance on saying something that has to pass cert would come out today, unless they already had cert, which they clearly did not.

    Actually, you are correct...and incorrect. Parts 2,3, and 4 do happen on consecutive days. But, they are all set in 1984, which was the next year that was slated to have a Friday the 13th during summer. The original film happens in 1979. Here is the timeline for parts II-IV*: 1982 Summer: While staying at her family's summer home Higgins Haven, seventeen-year-old Chris Higgins gets in a fight with her parents and runs into the woods. There, she is attacked by Jason Voorhees. Chris passes out and awakens back at home. Her parents refuse to speak of the incident. 1984 Friday the 13th Part II: Tuesday, July 10: Paul Holt's counselor training program at Packanack Lodge is opened. Jason Voorhees(wearing a burlap sack to cover his face) kills local doomsayer Ralph. Wednesday, July 11: Enraged that the Crystal Lake area is being intruded upon, Jason kills six of the counselorsin training, a local police officer, and the dog of one of the counselors. Eventually, Jason is faced by Ginny Fieldand Paul Holt. Ginny discovers Jason's Shack and manages to slice his left shoulder open with the same machete that killed Pamela Voorhees and stops Paul from being attacked by Jason. Ginny and Paul arrive at one of the cabins to rest, thinking they have killed Jason. Ginny falls asleep and has a nightmare that Jason attacks her once more. Thursday, July 12: The police arrive at Packanack Lodge. Ginny is rescued, but Paul's fate isn't quite exactly known. However, most likely he was brought into another ambulance heading towards the same hospital the bodies and Ginny were heading to. Friday the 13th Part III Thursday, July 12: Jason revives following Ginny's machete wound and flees from his shack. That night, he gets a new set of clothes from the laundry line of Harold Hockett, and then proceeds to murder Harold and his wife. Jason spends the night at Higgins Haven. Presumably around this time, Rob Dier learns of his sister Sandra's death at the hands of Jason and vows to avenge her. Friday, July 13: Nineteen-year-old Chris Higgins and five of her friends go on a weekend trip to Higgins Haven, picking up Shelly Finkelstein's blind date Vera Sanchez on the way. Upon their arrival, Jason kills the vacationers one by one, as well as Chris' boyfriend Rick and the three members of a motorcycle gang. During the massacre, Jason obtains a hockey mask from Shelly, which he uses to replace the sack as a mask. After a lengthy confrontation with Chris, who recognizes Jason as the person who terrorized her in the woods two years previously, the girl axes the madman in the face, seemingly killing him. (It is likely that Part III took place on a Friday the 13th because Chris and Andy refer to spending a weekend in the country. The script confirms that the murders at Higgins Haven take place on Friday the 13th.) Saturday, July 14: The police find Chris in an unbalanced state, hysterically talking of a "lady in the lake", Pamela Voorhees, having attacked her. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter Saturday July 14: The bodies of Jason and the ten victims at Higgins Haven are transported to Wessex County Morgue. There, Jason revives and kills a coroner and a nurse and hides their bodies before making his escape. Sunday July 15: A group of six vacationing teenagers arrive at the cottage next door to that of the Jarvis family, where Mrs. Jarvis and her children Trish and twelve-year-old Tommy are currently residing. Jason kills a stranded hitchhiker on his way back to Crystal Lake. Monday July 16: Rob Dier arrives at Crystal Lake, determined to hunt down Jason. The murderer kills the vacationing teenagers as well as Mrs. Jarvis, Rob and a set of teenaged twins. Trish and Tommy fight for their lives until Tommy impales Jason's head on his own machete. Seeing that Jason is still demonstrating signs of life, Tommy stabs the killer over and over again, screaming "Die!" endlessly. Jason Voorhees, finally dead, is buried in the Eternal Peace Cemetery, although officials of nearby towns are led to believe that his body was cremated. Tommy, heavily traumatized by his experience, spends the next five years being transferred from one mental institution to the next. While continuity is not the strongest point of the films, the timeline is pretty well established, at least for the first 5 films. The release dates of parts II and III do not coincide with the events in the films, they both take place in 1984. Part IV was released in 1984, which is the time in which it is set. Part V was released in 1985, but was set 5 years after the end of Part IV, which would make it 1989. Hope this is straightforward enough to be understandable. But, with the established timeline, Part IV's Jason, Jarvis House Setting, and the 1984 DLC Clothing Pack all seem to coincide. So, I really think Part IV content will be included in the big patch. *This information is taken from the Friday the 13th Wiki, but it has also been corroborated by many sources.

    Hey guys, So we do have internal projections but we'd rather be 100% certain when giving out dates, rather than give you guys speculation. It's better to be 100% rather than to give you guys a promise and miss a date. In essence; we are working as quickly and as hard as we can. This patch brings all versions to parity and gives us a more substantial platform to update for future content. We want to get updates going out at the same time, on a schedule that is sustainable and works for everyone. We're working to reduce the instances of patches going to Steam/PS4 before Xbox One and vice versa. That being said; we have a target. Is that target set? No. However, it is our hope.

    I will be very dissapointed. But, the torches will stay unlit... For now.

    I'd like to politely remind everyone that nobody at Gun/Illfonic has confirmed OR specifically teased an 8/28 date. We have cobbled this date together ourselves through speculation on two pictures of dots and the recurrence of 28 in the last two patches. I understand this statement will not keep people from pushing refresh all day, but if nothing drops before the day is over, there is still not a broken promise to point to. [carefully wraps self in bubble wrap and hides under bed, but not before clicking refresh]

    I'm not sure if this has already been discussed, but I was just thinking the other day "If they already added NES Jason, why not add the map from the game?" I'm assuming they'd have the rights to do so, since they were able to include purple Jason. I've attached a photo for reference. The woods could be tooled with documented pathways on the map (so you don't get lost), and the cave could be tweaked a bit, but I think featuring the cave would be terrifying and make for some intense matches. The three cabins by the lake could be accessed by running off trail, or by swimming (which we all know is very risky.) Perhaps a row boat could included as a reference to the original game. I think aesthetically the map should be played during dusk, where the sun has almost set (the second of three transitions we see throughout the game.) I believe having one map that is played during a different time of the day would add more variety to the types of matches we're used to seeing. I personally would love this, I'm a huge fan of the NES game and this would be super nostalgic for me (also a trip seeing it realized in HD.) Please consider this Gun. I ask anyone else to chime in if they support my idea. Thanks!

    They could ATLEAST release the small maps. 3 Months since the release of the game without anything new added. 3 Maps aswell as a certain Meta are getting boreing fast (im talking about how crap Kenny, P7 Jason is etc. Every1 just seems to play AJ in public.) Ofc people get angry, I just wanna get new maps, learn phone spots again and enjoy something new like at release. And lets be honest, everytime Gunmedia uses the same phrase "waiting for cert". Well maybe dont tease us 3 weeks and tell us cert is taking too long. Tease us when cert is DONE and release 1 or 2 weeks after. This is just stupid.

    I was just on there reading that thread. The Reddit community is always impatient and whiny. Not sure why they are getting so angry tho. If it doesn't come out the 28th they only have themselves to blame for creating that date and expecting it to release today. No one has officially said today was the day. Granted the last patches have released on the 28th so it's a good bet today would be the day but they can't get upset if they lose that bet.

    Our fellow community on reddit is getting very impatient. Seems most of them were dead set on the 28th being the release for the update. The comment section is, more or less, hard to read.

    In the virtual cabin and the trailers we can clearly hear each counselor having a unique voice. Even Adam who has the same actor as Kenny still has a different voice tone and lines. We can also see the different actors for each in the credits. Yet in the released game, every male counselor excluding only Chad, uses Kenny's voice and lines. All the girls have their unique voices and lines but not the guys. Whenever this has been asked about to the devs, we've gotten the canned "We don't comment on fan suggestions. Please see our policy on those. Link here" kinda thing or otherwise silence. It's never been officially acknowledged and even the new patch coming out that fixes all of these bug glitches makes no mention of fixing this. @wes @GunMedia_Ben @Gertz @Randygbk Can you fill us in on why all the male counselors use Kenny's voice and what happened to all the unique voices shown in the virtual cabin? Will we ever get this fixed? Is there a reason this is not being acknowledged? Any elaboration would be greatly appreciated.

    Crystal Lake = Part 1 - 1979 Packanack = Part 2 - 1981 Higgins = Part 3 - 1982 New Summer Clothing Pack = 1984 1984 = Part IV It's pretty obvious it's Part IV Jason with the Jarvis house. (If the leak didn't already prove that)

    The other day I was playing, I found the gas and put it in the boat. then I found the propeller and was making my way to the boat with it when 2 guys who were camping the boat came at me with machetes and started hacking away at me. I started running away back to where I found the propeller, little did they know that before I found the propeller, I also found the shotgun and stashed it near where I found the propeller. I picked up the shotgun and they started running away. I took one shot at them and took them both out. Then because one was the host, he rage quit and I didn't lose any XP. So much satisfaction.

    How is this post misleading? I offered a speculative theory regarding what the new Jason & map might potentially be using the official sites own image as a clue.

    i always have my headset on but usually only use it for "official business." i don't mind some small talk or joking around but i loathe playing with people that want to chit-chat the whole time. i don't even like playing with my real-life friends when they do that. I've actually left lobbies because people are trying too hard to talk to me. I'm an old guy and actually avoided most online gaming until this came out because of the social aspects (and people notoriously being jerks.)

    Rules for Playing as Jason: 1. Counselors do not get to tell Jason how to play. 2. Counselors do not get to tell Jason how to play. 3. Counselors do not get to tell Jason how to play. 4. (See Rules 1-3). When they drive out counselors say: "Bye Jason! You're a noob! You suck!" When you slash them counselors say: "Quit being a slashing bitch!" When you grab and kill counselors say: "You're a Try Hard!" You cannot win, therefore, kill them all. :)

    Since people are quoting me in here from Discord I figured I would drop in and say hi and follow up. So...hi everyone! The certification process can be fickle; sometimes you get through quickly with no issues and sometimes you get kicked because there are issues that you didn't see while the build was in test in the office. Sometimes it takes a few working days and sometimes it can take more. It's just unpredictable. I probably shouldn't have dropped the specific dates we felt we would be through internally in Discord as anything could happen. I should have left it as my normal "Soon(TM)" response. Obviously, it wasn't ready today and who knows what will happen tomorrow. Don't be angry at me or anyone else if nothing happens tomorrow, it was a guess on my part. I know it can rough waiting, trust me, we are doing everything we can to get something out as quick as possible. I think players will be happy. - Gertz
