    Hey, campers! Below you will find screenshots for each Jason. These shots were taking from the "select your Jason" section of the game. I'm posting these because I thought you guys might like to see the pros/cons for each Jason. We gave each Jason a strength and a weakness to help bring some gameplay variety to each Jason. Let me give some definitions to the strengths and weaknesses now, as I'm sure you'll have some questions that the images alone can't answer. J2 Strengths Can Run - Pretty self-explanatory. Traps - This Jason starts with more traps than others. Right now, that number is 6. Morph - Faster cooldown, so he can morph more frequently than other Jasons. J2 Weaknesses Shift - Slower cooldown on this ability. Defense - This Jason has lower HP and lower chance to successfully block attacks. Waterspeed - This Jason is very slow in the water. J3 Strengths Can Run - Same speed as J2 Weapon Strength - This Jason can deal more damage with his weapon against counselors. Grip Strength - It's harder to "wiggle" out of this Jason's grasp, once he grabs you. J3 Weaknesses Stun Resistance - This Jason gets stunned more frequently than others. Sense - Once sense is activated, it doesn't last very long for this Jason. Stalk - Similiar to "sense" in that it doesn't last as long. J6 Strengths Throwing Knives - This Jason starts with 4 knives. Other Jasons have to find them during a match. Sense - This Jason's sense lasts longer once activated. Shift - Faster cooldown on this ability. J6 Weaknesses Defense - This Jason has lower HP and lower chance to successfully block attacks. Can't Run - Has a "fast walk" but can't run like J2 and J3. Morph - The cooldown for using this ability takes longer, so this Jason can't Morph as often during a match. J7 Strengths Sense - Faster cooldown with this ability. Water Speed - Very fast in water, slightly faster that the boat. Grip Strength - It's harder to "wiggle" out of this Jason's grasp, once he grabs you. J7 Weaknesses Can't Run - Can fast walk, but can't run like J2 and J3. Traps - This Jason only has 2 traps to use. Shift - Slower cooldown on this ability. J8 Strengths Water Speed - Very fast in water, slightly faster that the boat. Destruction - Reduced amount of hits required to break doors/walls. Stalk - This Jason can remain in "Stalk" longer than others. J8 Weaknesses Sense - Once sense is activated, it doesn't last very long for this Jason. Can't Run - Can fast walk, but can't run like J2 and J3. Grip Strength - Counselors can break free from this Jason's grasp faster than others. J9 Strengths Shift - Faster cooldown on this ability. Stun Resistance - The chance this Jason will be stunned will be lower. Stalk - This Jason can remain in "Stalk" longer than others. J9 Weaknesses Can't Run - Can fast walk, but can't run like J2 and J3. Less Hit Points - This Jason has lower HP than other Jasons. Traps - This Jason only has 2 traps to use. Savini Jason Strengths Shift - Faster cooldown on this ability. Weapon Strength - This Jason can deal more damage with his weapon against counselors. Destruction - Reduced amount of hits required to break doors/walls. Savini Jason Weaknesses Water Speed - This Jason is very slow in the water. Can't Run - Can fast walk, but can't run like J2 and J3. Grip Strength - Counselors can break free from this Jason's grasp faster than others.

    This should be a time of celebration, not hatered. We finally got a date after all this time and people complain? Because it's not in April? Think about it. It could've been a lot worse! But the Devs did their best. I hope people can just respect the hard work they put into this project.

    Like I said previous to the last countdown, we should have a countdown to release. I wasn't sure if I was going to do one but I thought it could be fun. It's also my 1,000th post (time to go outside...) on this forum. Hopefully this won't get shut down- this is a place to bring your hype. 32 days until launch!

    Thanks for taking up this burden for humanity, Lynx. I, for one couldn't bear the scathing, blistering hatred from the same twelve people on this forum who would lay into me for daring to question the most holy. I will name my children after you and forever remember this sacrifice.

    Let me first start out by saying that when we talk with content creators, streamers and people that can spread the word on our game; we look at how their work is made. We look at quality, we look at content and we look at what someone is going to do for their channel to bring this game to the forefront of as many people as possible. We haven't discussed what we're doing publicly yet, but I can tell you that we're working for the best interests of this game. We want it to survive, we want it to thrive, we want you all to be able to play for years to come. We can't let this game be a flash in the pan...and if we can't get traction on people playing, that's exactly what is going to happen. You have to think long-tail here; streamers and YouTube channels are mainly there for entertainment. They find something they like or can be engaging, they play for a bit and they move on to the next shiny game. We have a core community that we listen to quite a lot and engage with on a day-to-day basis. You guys are the community, but a core community does not necessarily mean we're going to be able to build up funds for all the things we want to do for this game. You guys are our community, you guys are our supporters....but what good is it down the road when not enough people played or we can't continue to fund growing the game when there aren't enough people playing or buying the game? We want this to be the definitive F13 experience in gaming, right? The crowd-funding we got simply wasn't enough. We've been fighting tooth and nail via Backerkit to raise funds and we lowered funding quotas to try to get things going, but in all honesty funding is and always has been key. We have a monumental amount of interest in the game, and we will make sure that we can do everything to let people know that this game exists, it is fun, and the people who made it and support it are fans first and foremost. Streamers and YouTube creators aren't being given special treatment as in 'look at this game, you get it before anyone else.' You can't look at that mindset from our perspective. We want them to cover this game, talk about it and spread the word the same as we would want the LA Times, Kotaku, Game Informer, The AV Club and CNN too; we want more people to know about this game. It's pretty safe to say that the majority of people that are going to play this game still do not know it exists; we promise you that. This is standard practice with any project; a movie pre-screens for reviewers, a band plays a single for record labels and critics, and every game worth their salt makes sure that they can spread the word by any means necessary. Our goal is eyeballs, our goal is a fun game and our goal is to ensure that every single person has fun playing it.

    I knew from the moment they announced the content creator thing it was about marketing and money. I get that and I don't blame them for it. At the end of the day, they're a business, and they need to do what's in the best interest of their business. On those grounds, I don't blame or fault them for it. But, as a fan and gamer, my gripe with this is in streamers getting to play early and thus when the game launches there won't be any sense of 'everyone on the same level' of learning everything and figuring everything out. It'll all have been spoiled in the streams prior to launch and on Day1 people will already be picking certain chars and doing certain strategies etc. they saw in the stream. That's what I am dissapointed about. I was looking forward to the launch day bliss of ignorance we'd all have and get to explore and figure everything out on our own and together. Going in blind won't be possible with the pre-release streamer thing. So that's my two cents on that. I don't blame them for marketing to get more money. God knows they need it. But, I can't say I'm not dissapointed that most stuff will be spoiled before we even get to play it ourselves.

    (Takes a drink of water) (Takes a chill pill to ease anger from 4 AND HALF WEEK DELAY!!!) So. lets look at the trailer, we have.. A new kill. Thats pretty cool. But the interesting part, is the perk system. Perks seem to be able to be rolled with positive and negative aspects to boost their effects. An RNG buff system for perks? Well that's going to be pretty unique! Not sure how that will effect the meta on the whole but it sure as FUCK spices things up a bit! Also that bit at the end where he slashes Early 2017 to announce that SOUL CRUSHING 4 AND HALF WEEK DELAY!!! ... was kind of funny I guess

    This game is first and foremost about Friday the 13th. It's a passion project, one that all of us here are spending a lot of time and effort to ensure things are exactly what they should be for the best possible experience we can come up with. Sure, we're a business, but that's to fuel a passion more than anything else.

    They have been more transparent than any other devs i can recall. They don't owe us anything. Matter of fact, we owe them a big thank you for even designing a game based off of and centered around one of the most , if not the most, iconic killing machine in horror movie history. So...sack up. Be thankful we are even getting this game. This is for fans by fans. I'm glad they took the time to build it and get it right. You can say "i backed them". Well, i did too. Makes no difference. They don't owe us anything other than the awesome game they have made which is like 2 seconds away from being released.

    Obviously, I'm goddamn thrilled to have a release date! Gives me time to clear up on a couple other games I'm played first, too. I really want a clear slate when I start playing this. Stuff noticed from the trailer! Jason 6's weaknesses - Defence, Can't Run, Morph Jason 8's weaknesses - Sense, Can't Run, Grip Strength Jason 9's strengths - Shift, Stun Resistance, Water Speed Jason 9's weaknesses - Can't Run, Less Hit Point (that's new), Morph In the clothing section, it's split into Tops, Bottoms and Shoes as earlier suggested. There are 6 items in each category with a half-block on the left, so at minimum (I emphasize that) it's 7 items per category. There's also a perk screen, with "RollPerk 500CP" at the top. Seems to be a system where you spend your game cash and get a random perk (don't know if that's for a single game or lasts longer) with a random positive and negative effect as well. In the video they got: Perk - Sneaky (move faster while going through windows and getting in or out of hiding spots) Positive - Window and Hiding Spot Speed Increased 7% Negative - More Damage Taken 1% (pretty fortunate there)

    I just want to chime in as well, as someone that supervises the Discord. I wasn't witness to someone shutting down that conversation. If it was a matter of talking in absolutes, like "Devs don't know what they're doing. I know better" attitude, I would understand, but I'm all for discussing the game and that leads me to another thing Inclusiveness: I've been aware of some of the cliquey-ness in all corners of the Discord and it's something I discourage on the whole and expressed very passionately a few months ago (but it seems like there needs to be a reminder), because I've always been of the mind that people should be able to look at the chat and see that it's fine to just jump straight in and join in on the discussions without feeling pushed out by others for one reason, or another. That being said, if you are the one that's pushing others out with insults, things mentioned in the rules, or using language that shuts them out of being a part of the conversation, that could get you shut out. There is going to be a mod-meeting soon today to discuss again, some of the things that have been troubling me.

    Locking the original thread was futile. As if that's going to stop people discussing it. Hence why we're here four pages later. I don't like censorship.

    I did this during the beta too. Jason shouldn't be saying stupid shit as he's chasing you around and nobody needs to hear me yell "I'LL TEACH YOU TO STAB ME!" or "GOD DAMN IT! GET YOUR ASS OVER HERE SO I CAN KILL YOU ALREADY." or even "QUIT LOOPING THE DAMN CAR YOU PUSSY." It would just ruin the immersion for everyone else.

    .....................they bought the game. They are entitled. That is how the consumer/seller relationship works. What you suggesting is the equivalent of a person going to a store, paying for a product at the register, and being told they can have it in a year and a half. The person walks away after and say, "I should be grateful they even took my money! Can't wait!" There is no logic in that and it goes against the foundation of capitalism...I feel like that needs a "sir!" at the end. I shall exempt you from a "sir," sir! An author isn't a good example. It's art without a clear way to achieve it. You could say that he could sit down and actually write them, but that is presuming a lot. When someone is an artist and not one with the label of "artist" that just talks in a goofy voice over other people's work, pushing them could put them in permanent hermitage. Salinger is a nice example. He vanished at the height of his popularity. Didn't stop writing though. I'm not angry about the delay. But it would be nice if people would read the topic they are commenting on to see where everyone's head space is. No point in opening old wounds because you haven't read one single page of comments.

    Really dude? someone who has been ultra-critical of the devs complaining about having shit thrown your way? Pot, meet kettle. I guarantee whatever transgression you feel has been passed to you or anyone else feeling slighted and 'targeted' by attacks, the devs are feeling it ten-thousand-fold. If one singular source repeatedly lied to me? I would stop believing that source; this is not a case of that. You keep going on like this is a longstanding tradition with these guys, nothing but broken promises, and here I am having a hard time remember more than 1 or 2. They said fall 2016, delayed to early 2017. Compensation: Single player missions, Offline AI bots, Jarvis, new map. people got additional beta keys for free Early 2017 became May 26th 2017 and physical copies later than that. Compensation: Everyone that got physical copies is getting a free digital copy so they can play day 1. Yeah, what lying, scheming assholes, its like they are purposely trying their best to make up for the fact that some things, both in and out of their control, took longer than expected. How easily people forget all the great work they have done since the beta, from mechanical and level improvements to new functionality and zero in on a broken promise. Keep in mind, looking at the release date post from Wes, here's a promise...that was kept

    Boo this man! Though I hope you continue to pop around in Off Topic until the game drops. You've been one of the cat's I've come to like most on the forums. I've enjoyed our conversations over the last five months. To be frank, I'm gonna miss a handful of the people here once we all depart for the game itself. Edited: four to five in the second paragraph.

    To be fair, anybody with eyes and a potato for a brain can see the game doesn't suck ass. If Pewder showed gameplay footage that wasn't heavily edited to fit his narrative,that would work against him. Except all the people who will. I agree with this for a few reasons. I'll preface my views as though Gun does want to give early access and this isn't them reaching out for other reasons. 1. The backers are the sole reason this game is coming out. I get that Gun wants to make the game as popular as hotcakes and sell it to everybody and their grandma too, but respect your roots. 2. I'm worred that if streamers are given access to a full game (as in Jason can die etc) that it will affect both the meta and the mystery. I get that is going to happen regardless, but I'm not liking the idea of others possibly having weeks of headstart. 3. Simply put, I don't like being treated like a pleb. While I don't have some massive following, my comments and ferver for the game on my own personal social media has caught the interest and excitement of more then a few pals, who plan to play if for no other reason then just to kill me. They've never watched these streamers and don't know them if I mention them. 4. Being a "little guy" themselves, it seems like Gun wouldn't shoot itself in the foot with the masses. While I plan to play F13 regardless, future dealing with the company are not absolute certainty. (at least for me**.) Pissing off everybody with the "Early 2017" delay* didn't win them hearts and minds, and I don't see catering to a small group at the expense of the kickstarters/backers helping. * The delay didn't piss me off. Waiting to the last minute to announce it did a bit. The idea of streamers getting access however, has me pretty flipping annoyed. ** The most important thing is content. Even though I like Gun, I wouldn't buy a "two old people humping" simulator. But if their business practices start to piss me off enough, I wouldn't bother even if the content is decent. Ask EA or Capcom what I've bought of theirs in the last few years.

    The beta was the first time I watched any streamers and I usually had to mute them. I won't be watching any streams but I hope they don't spoil anything before the game comes out because we'll all hear about it whatever it is. Also, aren't streamers somewhat like reviewers? How objective can you be if you're getting special privileges?

    I do consider this a delay, and i was in the camp who knew there was gonna be a delay and who wanted them to admit it, long ago. Now that that's said, we have a date now and the game is gonna be fucking amazing, what good will them coming out to say : yea our amazing game will be coming one month after the end of Early 2017, sorry about that? Would that even satisfy the whiners? I guess my bottom line is who cares

    Wow..... First really good Friday the 13th game and all most of you can do is complain about a delay, nitpick imperfections in the game, and grumble that a triple A company isn't producing this game. Wow....just wow. People have become way too entitled. This is a game for true fans by true fans. Get over yourselves and respect that we finally have an awesome Jason game to play. To the devs....thank you so much for working so hard on a game for a franchise that you and i both love. Really glad i pre ordered the savini skin and the clothing pack. For you other fans that are just as happy as i am about this game....hope to see some of you on ps4. Just give me more than 2 minutes before you kill me.

    Woh Woh Woh.. you DO know that big company's fuck the same or MORE games on DLC than indie companies now days right? Take for example Destiny... The original Destiny was a DLC fucking TRAINWRECK that charged absurd amounts of money for community splitting features. Dark Souls 3 (A game that I fucking love!) Its first DLC was an utter pitiful disaster with next to NO content for the price and chalk full of exploitables. Lets also not forget that Nintendo amiibo plague... Look you can totally be upset at the delay... hell I AM... but lets not pretend that a AAA company would of given us anything more than a corporate cash grab POS for a Jason Title. Why did the devs delay the game again? Honestly, I don't give a fuck why. All I know, is they promised a early 2017 release date and ended up going over it due to mistakes and roadblocks. However! Does ANY OF THAT change the quality of what we know about the game from playing an inferior beta version of the title? I PLAYED the beta and I enjoyed the fuck out of it. So while I'm upset about the delay I'm not angry enough diss the game. I WANT this game to be good. And as long as they give me a solid best effort Friday the 13th game I don't give jack shit about size or anything else.

    Before I say anything, yes- I'm happy there's a date. It's about fucking time. I am, though it may get shut down. Before I can start any new countdown- I have to finish the one I started: This is the image you would've seen about 21 days ago had the original countdown not been shut down. So, before I start high-fiving over a release date- we were right. We made an educated guess based on the information that was provided and a history of behaivour. I cannot count the amounts of times we were told we were wrong. I can't count the amount of personal attacks. I can't count the amount of knee-jerk reactions to anything related to the countdown. What I can count- was the days down to a delay. We got shutdown and we were right. I think some folks are thinking I'm trying to be negative with this but please read all of the negative bullshit flown anyone's way for even suggesting a delay. It's a broken promise- plain and simple, and we called it. Deal with it. With all of that said- we at least have a release date now and that's a positive.

    I think you might be confusing this forum with Twitter. Most of the people here are pretty level headed. Some might be a little miffed about the release date being slightly delayed again, but nobody here as of yet is starting a dumpster fire. Now Twitter and Reddit, well, that's another beast entirely.

    It's not a fact currently but it may be soon. We're 9 days away from the end of a release window provided in mid-October, six months ago. Talking about a delay is a logical thought. It would be kind of stupid to not consider it being a major possibility at this point. I actually spent some time reading a Dead by Daylight board this morning and they're already complaining Jason is overpowered. Or because the group there has a lot of difficulty hearing differing opinions and had to stop letting people in so they could resume being an echo chamber. Yea, I get the impression they weren't really prepared for what it actually takes. On top of it, having Sony Europe ignore them doesn't do them any favours. Hopefully the Sony folks in North America can tell the ones in Europe to get their shit together.
