  1. I have been trying to back you up since the very beginning it's very hard though so I would like to say that it is the best game I have ever played in my life

     

  2. I get the frustration, but we're offering rewards for backing levels. We'd not have been able to get what we were able to get without the support of our backers, but costs are a reality. The $40 cost of a retail version is something baked in for the major retailers. We aren't a major retailer. We have to pay shipping to our backers. We also have to get together for all the signed versions, then package and ship those out. These costs add up and we've tried small-scale previously with world-wide shipping on posters and other items (we lost money, lol). These backers also got access to the beta, they got the wallpapers, they've had access to content earlier than those waiting to buy and inadvertently got an entirely new copy of the game for free due to our mishap with the physical packaging.
  3. Every single thread of racism or report has been reviewed. We are not a ban-happy company and while people on a few of those social pages seem to believe that is not the case, we review each instance for proof. Simply hearing one guy cuss another player out or use a racial slur isn't going to just get them a slap-happy ban. People use words, people harass, people act like assholes. We get that. It's gaming. We're a game with murder....people get heated. So; I promise you that your submitted content was reviewed. The message that responded to you was likely automated as we don't need to, nor is it prudent, to respond to the several hundreds of emails we get a day. Unfortunately a large number of reports we get are simply text-based with absolutely no evidence. A good amount of those reports are people simply asking us to ban team-killers. Another good portion of submitted materials are 15-30 second videos showing a counselor standing near Jason while claiming they were team-killing/helping Jason. We get a ton of exploit bug reports. Out of all those hundreds of emails, the actual actionable information is incredibly small and has resulted in few bans. We review, we take action when possible and move on to the next one. If you provided us with continued, unrelenting, hateful, over-the-top, terrible things being said from a user that was harassing for the sole purpose of hatred and bigotry, we totally ban for that. If someone is being a prick and calls you a couple bad words....mute them and move on. I apologize you feel you are being ignored, but you are not. You don't happen to be the person that approached me at SDCC, right?
  4. No idea why this wasn't locked already...but definitely locking a topic that has come through more times than I can count.
  5. Hilariously the decision was made before this article came out.
  6. Topic already made on this.
  7. Well, I will hand it to him that he uses the Middletown, OH Public Library to log in rather than his own IP....but this is definitely Darrin Howard, who is evading his earlier permaban.
  8. Hey all! So, the biggest thing we’ve heard from our community with the game are issues pertaining to rampant team-killing that has unfortunately been abused by players on all platforms. While the mechanic’s intent is designed to promote life-or-death experiences into each and every game you play, the reality has turned into more of a Battle Royale scenario to a point our team feels a change needs to be made. In the next patch; Public Games will no longer allow counselor team killing through weapons use against other counselor players. The shotgun, machete, and other assorted weapons will no longer have any effect on friendly players. However; there remain a couple dangers. The biggest one is that the car will remain as-is. A car can and will be able to run you over and kill you. We decided on this as the alternative was abused during our beta where users would simply stand in front of the car, effectively blocking it from moving. The next consideration is that counselor-placed bear-traps will still cause damage to other counselors that walk over them, however a resulting death will no longer incur an XP Penalty. To that we say; pay attention to placed traps. Our team believes that the ability to hurt other counselors is something that this game should have as it adds tension and requires players to make tough calls. However, we do not believe this should be a mechanic that is abused by players to the point where the vast majority of our current communications from fans are complaints of rampant/unwarranted team-killing/griefing/trolling. We will include this mechanic in private matches for now, with the hope of better options in the future. Tl;dr · Public Matches - Team Killing is No Longer Possible · Public Matches - Cars Can Still Kill · Public Matches - Traps Still Can Hurt/Kill - no XP penalty Loss to Trap Placer · Private Matches - Team Killing Still Possible · Can’t Have Nice Things. -Gun
  9. We still have to pay for packaging and shipping your specific case to your address, something that we have to do via our Kickstarter/Backerkit rewards goal. Let me also remind you that you also made a donation and we promised rewards at specific tiers. A Kickstarter is not a purchase; it is a donation that you make willingly and we offer rewards that will be fulfilled at a later date as thanks for your donation. Your donation helped to make this game a reality. Your donation listed exactly what you would get as thanks for your support. If you went for a straight physical copy, we thank you for your $60 donation and we are sincere that the costs are there in shipping to you. That is something we have to do. We even offered a free digital version of the game to you as our apology for not being able to deliver at launch. In essence, you donated $60 and we gave you a free digital key and will get you the promised physical reward just as soon as we are able.
  10. We're working to get those done quickly as possible, yes.
  11. Hey all, Wes talked with GamesIndustry here about the game. A bit about what we've been going through. Thought you guys would like the read with a heads up on what's going on to a degree. http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2017-08-01-friday-the-13th-stumbles-to-1-8m-sold
  12. All physical backers get the bloody skin which can be applied to all versions of Jason. Digital will also get bloody versions as well, those come at a later date.
  13. We have unconfirmed reports from users that the skin is being removed, but MS has not directly confirmed with us just yet. We're pinging them to find out. Until we know 100%, we continue to maintain that it's being looked into.
