I have noticed since Jason can see the phones location  he will constantly camp the location. Just wondering if there is a better way to do things that will stop this sort of issue. I did not see any topic in search about this so wondering what others think as well

Jason should have to find the phone location it should not pop up on his map since it is not a "goal" of his to repair it to win. His goal is the counselors so that should be the only focus and help he gets. He should not have double advantage over counselors by seeing where all of their things are as well.

Counselors can see the car .... so that's fair. (Referring to the "double advantage", I assume you meant the car as well.) If Jason cannot see the phone, I think there has to be a tradeoff, since someone usually spawns very close to it. If he cannot stop them then almost every match will end up having the police called first thing. I've suggested that if Jason cannot see the phone, then it should be much harder to repair, thereby avoiding the meta game of teleporting right to the phone and camping it.

Im all for more difficulty in repairing the phone...so yeah...taking away Jasons visuals on that and making the phone a few more steps would help. Maybe Jason cannot see the phone location UNTIL someone misses a step or messes up.the his mother would tell him about it.

And just to chime in,

 

Jason knows the camp like the back of his hand. It'd be disappointed if he -didn't- know where the phone was.

I agree.

 

Was there actually a problem with Jason camping the phone? It seemed Jason players would check it from time to time, but if Jason put most of his energy into guarding the phone, he's letting people escape in the car. The phone should need more steps I agree, but not at the tradeoff of Jason not seeing it.

I can't really see Jason players wasting time on that when they would want to camp other things like the car first!

Camping the phone box in the beta was a by product of how easy the cop escape was to do.

 

If the phone was significantly harder to pin down than Jason wouldn't feel obliged to camp it.

 

Also if the boat escape is added WITH the 2 cars and the phone it will make camping all escape routes basically impossible.

I think that no one should be able to see the phone. When I was playing I swear that I didn't see it on the map. I don't know how I didn't see it. I could see the car but no phone. I kept running around looking for some sort of clue to where it was. It made it a lot more challenging.

Then escape by boat or car.

 

Not that difficult.

 

We have THREE ways of escaping, four if you count surviving.  And in all likelyhood one of you will die... So it serves to ZERO advantage for Jason camping just one location of interest.

 

If he camps the phone, there's still the car and the boat.

 

He camps the boat, there's still the phone and the car.

 

He camps the car, there's still the phone and the boat.

 

 

If he's camping one means of escape, go find another.  That's the whole point.  And as I recall, there are not three Jasons present in this game... So how is camping an issue?

 

EVEN IF the boat and the car are both gone and Jason is still camping the phone... Hide.  Wait until the match ends.  The match ends in your favor... so there's literally no advantages to Jason guarding the phone; all odds are stacked against him if he does.  Idk how this was projected into an issue; it's not really an issue, the game itself negates it becoming one.

BAKA I never morph right to the phone
I morphed to Blairs cove or Stillwater 1st than I would go check on the phone if you morph to them they would think the phone must be there since you morphed there 1st so what you said is a lie not everybody does Morph right to the phone

Heres the thing. As Jason you can see cars moving on the map. You can stop them even once theyve been repaired. Once the phone call is made theres nothing you can do about it aside from camping the exit once the cops get there. Cars are important to stop repairs on but Id say less than the phone. When I was Jason my first priority was to stop them from calling police. As a counselor, depending on where I spawned, the first thing I tried to do was get that call in.

Tools for the phone repair would be a nice extra step to make the phone that bit harder to repair.

That said, Jason should be able to smash the face of the meddler repairing the phone box right into the electrical circuits 😈

Didnt really say anything offensive @resolution. Just stated how responding makes ME FEEL. Didnt call him a child, nor that he talked or acted like a child...just how it makes me feel. Just saying. Just like how you said how you text makes people THINK your mad, when in fact your really not. Noone should get mad at you for that.

I never suggested nobody had a right to get mad at me for it.  I even apologized for it.  Something you seem to forget and currently lacking.

 

My bluntness had more to do with social immaturity rather than feelings.  Ignorance of proper rules of social behaviors.  Don't you go using it as an excuse to treat people poorly and justify it.
