    Hello Campers! I would like to introduce Victoria Sterling, Camp Crystal Lake’s newest counselor. Similar to Chad, Victoria comes from money and she is used to getting her way. So much so that she often is perceived as “bitchy” and manipulative. She doesn’t mean any physical harm, but it’s safe to say that in a pinch, she’s looking out for herself first. Victoria has low repair and strength, so she will need to rely on her above average stamina pool and stealth skills. It would be ill-advised for Victoria to square up to Jason without some additional help from another counselor. In a 1v1 situation you’ll find Victoria doing less fighting, and more yelling for her Dad...the Dean of an Ivy League junior college. Getting a better picture now of Victoria? She’s the worst, in the best possible way! Victoria will be added at no additional cost in the next update. Note; Victoria will not have access to the premium DLC clothing packs (Spring Break and Halloween).

    Hello Camp Slashers, We’ve talked about grab animations, Single Player Challenges, Weapon Switching, Changes to Part 7 Jason, Grab Animation reworking, Roy’s Coveralls, the Salt Mines, and Key-binding, and today we’re going to talk about some of the improvements coming to the counselor AI in Friday the 13th: The Game’s Offline Bots game mode. AI will now be equipped with Perks that better match the selected difficulty level. Playing on Hard? The counselors might be packing a Perk that starts them out with a defensive item, just like their human counterparts. AI will be better at choosing a hiding spot, and what cabins they should enter based on the number of other counselors in the cabin. At higher difficulties, counselors will more carefully select and use weapons, especially weighing their chance to stun. They’ll probably ditch that stick for something that packs a bit more punch. AI might not be able to appreciate music, but higher difficulty AI will use the radios located in the cabins as a means of distraction. Higher difficulty AI can shoot more accurately, place traps, and will attempt to open Jason’s traps with pocket knives. They have become better at repairing vehicles and letting friends into a repaired car before they take off, as well as getting back onto the road in case they wreck. Counselors will react more realistically to sounds – broken windows, doors, walls – and depending on difficulty and the counselor you snatch up, they may have an easier time of breaking free of Jason’s grasp. We believe that these changes will allow our Jason players to face a greater challenge against the Offline Bot AI.

    Hello Friday the 13th: The Game players and fans, As many of you are aware, we have been targeting an April release for the next major update to Friday the 13th: The Game since our announcement that the game would be moving to an updated version of the Unreal game engine. We have known that hitting a date in April was ambitious, and a best case scenario, but we believe that people should strive for their best. Today we have been forced to accept that the update will not be able to be released in April. The update is shaping up nicely, but there are still a few issues that we need to iron out to ensure the best gameplay experience for our players, and we still need to pass the patch through console certification. Our goal is to make sure the work is done right, and that meant we needed some extra time with it. Why didn’t you release on Friday the 13th of April? This update has been a massive endeavor. The game engine upgrade alone means that the team at IllFonic has had to go over every system in the game and check, tweak, or recreate it. They have been doing amazing work at an intense pace throughout the update process. We are incredibly proud of their progress and everyone at Illfonic and Gun are anxious to get the update out and into the hands of our players. However, setting a hard release date, with the amount of features and upgrades included, would have only served to undermine IllFonic’s work for the sake of hitting a specific day. The game, and our players, would have suffered from it. When is the update coming? We are in the later stages of finalizing, but we are not yet at a place in the process where we can state a specific date with certainty. All of our major reworks and new features - updated game engine, Single Player Challenges, Victoria, Bot AI Improvements, Weapon Switching, Legendary Perks, etc. - are in place in our development builds. However, we are at least weeks away from release, and if major issues are found we will work to solve them before release. What we do know is that there is no longer a possibility of hitting a release date in April, and we felt that we should let Friday the 13th: The Game players know. Why is it taking so long? This is, by far, the largest technical update to release for Friday the 13th: The Game. In addition to the implementation of our new and reworked major features, everything in the game needed to be checked over due to the engine revision change. That said, we realize that our players are used to an update every month or two, and we understand the disappointment of the update not being released in April. What is “done”? Every piece of “Thursday News” that we have released since February 9th, 2018 is finalized in the update. The engine upgrade is complete (there’s a comparison video lower in this post), Single Player Challengers are finished, as are Weapon Swapping, Keybinding, the altered Jason Grab, Legendary Perks, AI Improvements, the Salt Mines, Part 7 Jason rework, and Victoria Sterling. All of these features are in our development builds and are working well. Right now, we’re buttoning up the build. Are you going to “surprise drop” this update? No, the next update is a massive milestone for us and we will not be silent about its release date. We will be releasing communications about the update’s release before it comes out, and we will communicate the date as soon as it is certain.

    We all know how excruciating it is to play a match, snatch up a counselor, and – BAM! – “the host has left” pops up on the screen. It’s annoying. It’s INFURIATING. It’s an issue that players have been experiencing, and telling us about, for a while now. But what do we do about salty players who can’t take the fact that they are losing? We give them Salt, with a Capital S. “Huh?!” Salt is a currency, only instead of being able to buy something cool with it, you buy an express ticket to the Salt Mines. More on that in a minute. Earning Salt is EASY! Just do any of the following: Leave a match early, like a jerk Leave a match while being killed, like a big jerk Leave a match as Jason, like a super jerk Leave a match while hosting, like a mega jerk “WTF are the Salt Mines?!” Great question, it’s almost like you’re reading my mind and asking exactly what I need you to, so I can explain the system. The Salt Mines are where Salty players go to play with their equally Sodium-soaked peers. They are kept to their own matchmaking queue where Salty souls only play against other Salty game quitters, locked away from players who know that, sometimes, losing is a part of playing In Quick Play, Salty players will play together, but they can play with anyone in Private Matches. “How much Salt do you get for each of the things listed above? Does Salt go away? How fast?” We aren’t saying, that would be like a "how to" for trolls Yes See 1 “When does this happen?” We’ll be rolling out this change with the engine upgrade update. Happy Matchmaking.

    Would you blame them? People waited all day for something of substance, only to be told something of zero substance that was assumed to be coming anyway. GUN are complete clowns, lol. This is embarrassingly bad. Any other company would have, at the very least, given a progress update - just so people knew at least a general idea how far along the update actually was. As silly as it is - this stupid tweet pretty much sums up this company. Like if I wasn't done before, I am now. We're going to cross the 1-year anniversary threshold and the game will still be busted. To leave it in this state for over a year is, like I said, embarrassing on their part. It isn't "butthurt" - at this point any anger towards the devs is both reasonable and justified. They've got a complete lack of transparency, and a complete lack of professionalism. I can't think of any other game dev that acts like this. Like, if you want to brownnose and let them bend you over, be my guest - but I don't kiss the butt of people who disappoint me on a daily basis.

    Hey everyone, it was my intention to have this posted up to all of the major places - forums > reddit > Twitter > Facebook - but I miscommunications that to the team. That’s on me. Unfortunately I do not have my laptop with me while at the show floor, and I was coordinating over the terrible LTE network that was a little overworked at the expo. There is some extra info to go along with this, though, and that is that each Single Player Challenge has three Skull Objectives, on top of multiple Challenge-specific objectives, for XP score, being undetected, and eliminating all counselors. For each Skull Objective you complete, you unlock a specific Emote. We do realize that not everyone is a fan of emotes, but we think that they can be fun to use and there’s no harm in having them. Especially when they don’t cost our players any extra money. Plus, everyone gets AJ’s interpretation of Violet’s dance (useable on any counselor, yes, even Chad), and it’s the best thing ever. Again, sorry for my miscommunication! Edit: have you seen a dancing Chad get hit in the face with a throwing knife? That shit is hilarious.

    @Alien_Number_Six suggested we have a thread dedicated to bringing Alice Hardy (Adrienne King) to Friday the 13th: The Game. Alice is the original final girl in the Friday the 13th films. She’s the only final girl to appear in two films She killed Pamela Voorhees The ‘Girl Next Door’ trope is already filled by Jenny but I can’t think of any reason not to bring Alice (and Ginny) into the game. LaChappa and Shelly share the same “trope”.

    Jesus Christ people. It's ONE week he didn't post new info because he's at PAX. The F13 page posted a quick note on twitter, no where else. Shifty's at PAX so likely didn't even know they posted it. Is it REALLY that hard for you guys to cut him some slack for one friggin' week? Do people really need to get the torches and moan and whine because they didn't get an update one single week because they were at a convention? Seriously, calm yourselves.

    You guys that want team killing back do you remember those times? It was a trollfest. Minutes and minutes waiting for the match to start only to see stupid bugsy killing all the way around other counselors and no game at all. The next game you were lucky not to find such lowlife people but the host left. No thanks, I don't want that back.

    Hey campers! I hope you all had a great weekend and that this Monday isn’t being too rough on you. I heard that Mitch is still recovering from having too much fun this past Friday. So, seems to be a lot of chatter about our pal Reggie, huh? It is true that Shavar Ross AKA Reggie “The Reckless” Winter reached out to us about being a character in the game. We’re fans of Mr. Ross and loved him as Reggie in Part V. Let’s not forget that scream he has! Man, he could beach dolphins with those pipes! However, as you guys are fully aware, adding a new character to the lineup isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. A lot of thought would need to go into a new counselor and their stats. Let’s not forget that Reggis was a kid in the film, and Mr. Ross is a little older now. I’m not sure he can hit that high note scream anymore. It would be cool to see Reggie back at Pinehurst again, but adding new content to the game isn’t always our call to make. Especially with the uncertainty of the on-going Miller case with respect to the license. There are other characters we have on our internal wish list as well. Maybe someday we will get to bring them back to Crystal Lake. But in the interim, under the circumstances, we can’t commit to them. It sucks, I know. Trust me...I’m a fan just like you guys, and I want to see more familiar faces at camp. Wes Keltner CEO Gun Media

    Honestly, what is wrong with people? The meta of the game went from everyone trying to repair the car to escape... to people relying on the cops being called to escape... to everyone trying to kill Jason... and now nobody wants to do... anything. Every lobby it’s clear that players just want to sandbox. There might be 1-2 players who are running objectives and the rest are trolling, hoarding items, or refusing to escape. Way too many matches are completely dragged out by mediocre players trying to ‘juke’ Jason through the same 2 windows or around a table. Why is their no report or boot option? These players MUST be able to be booted from the game. Cut and dry, point blank, period. The amount of trolling, lallygagging, and lack of objectivity in this game now holds the entire game hostage. It gets to where I escape and I leave to another lobby. I’m not waiting 8-15 minutes to watch amateurs and kids wonder around setting traps on each other while Jason grabs his friends and just spins around. But wait, wouldn’t this put me in the ‘salt mines’? Oh ok.

    Rather than dish out warnings and lock this thread, I'm going to say something and I want people to remember this. Yes, you're all entitled to your opinion - no problem with that - but be adults about it. Calling the developers 'shit bags' and similar names is childish. You can leave such phrases out of your personal 'reviews'; you can express your displeasure but don't throw your toys out of the pram about it. Put it across in a way that's constructive and useful to read. How is insulting the developers going to help better the game, and who would want to read your opinion if it's mostly angry insults? These are people you are talking about. People have feelings and emotions, and these people have been working hard for a long time for us. It's so easy to complain about little things and forget everything else. I don't want to see any more of these hate filled 'opinions' (mostly just anger fueled insults). Remember when you say 'the devs are <profanity>, <profanity> and <profanity>', they are people just as we are and the forum rules state no flaming or antagonising. Post sensibly and reasonably.

    Good Lord. After all this -- you STILL don't get it?? No matter how many times we circle around this. No matter how many times it's pointed out to you. You continue to ignore what EVERYONE is telling you. NO ONE IS SAYING NO ONE WANTS REGGIE!!!!!! What myself and SOOOOO many people are saying is that you and a few others are trying to use deceptive practices and metrics to make it look like a HUGE number of people want Reggie. You throw out "metrics:" 32 likes. 2 retweets. That's "coffee-sipping, giggling spiteful girl" GIF-worthy? It's posts like these that create enemies here for you. And honestly, it's fairly unimpressive. You've proven that 32 people on the planet either: Like the idea of Reggie being added, or Think that GIF you tweeted was cool. You say things like "Reggie's thread is one of the largest threads on the forum for a reason." Indeed. I have some true metrics for you: Reggie Thread Total Posts: 710 (711 counting this one) Total Posts by Armani: 194 (27.32%) Total Posts by RoyBurns, Tyrone King, and two others: 164 (23.09%) Total of the above: 358 (50.42%) Posts from others either not for the idea or complaining about the above in thread: 228 (32.11%) Posts from others with a neutral position: 51 (7.18%) Posts from others expressing interest/development in the idea: 22 (3.09%) Conclusions: Well over a quarter of all posts were made by one person (you) Just under another quarter of all posts were made by four others. Over HALF of all posts were made by five people. Just under a full third of all posts were NEGATIVE - whether regarding the character being added or about the tactics used by some of the five listed above. Removing posts from the five users mentioned above, only 3% of comments were POSITIVE about adding the character. Further findings: Over 20 instances of multi-posting by the aforementioned five listed above. Over 20 instances of bumping the thread after lengthy hiatuses by the aforementioned five listed above, some with little to no relevancy. In conclusion, I'd just like to add that you would have a LOT more support if not for the attitudes often expressed here. When someone disagrees with you (myself, @bewareofbears, @Truth, @hu_soldier13, @Barbara Ann, @Qcici and several others, case-in-point) -- rather than simply debating the subject logically and politely, you and a few others very often took the low road and wrote smug, insulting comments -- posting likewise GIFs to cement your smug position, creating anger and emnity within the forum. People here often tried to help you and were met with the same. That is not how a campaign succeeds. Honestly, I very much doubt Shavar would condone many of the things said and tactics used here to get him in the game. I've said my peace. Please do not use the size of this thread in your argument again. End of Line.

    It's fine where it is now. If counselors weren't dumb/selfish and actually used them on traps, it wouldn't even be remotely problematic. It's fine as is now because those 4-5 knives aren't helping the counselors survive. It just delays the inevitable for one more grab.

    Tl; DR Exactly. I did a lot of work yesterday so I wanted to unwind and fired F13th up. At first cool cool I’m the last person put in a lobby, 4 people are using mics, and the game starts immediately. It’s late, I’m snacking on some chips, so I have my mic off for now. The game starts and just as I go to turn on my mic, I hear the person a cabin over say, “Yeah somone’s in the cabin next to me. On the north side. No. Where are you? Oh ok. No. Yeah.” I decide to keep my mic off and see what’s brewin..... BAM, Jason shows up at my cabin. The people with mics were working together and talking with each other to narrow the locations of counselors and relay that to Jason. Unfortunately for them, I’m amazing and I survived while they escaped because Jason was chasing me THE ENTIRE 20 minutes. At the end, the friend that was Jason was FUMING and instructed: “Everyone, go after BeautyNumber2 she’s a bitch.” Second game, 3rd game, 4th game, 5th, 6th, 7th these people spent the entire game gunning for me. I survived every time. I stayed just to make them seethe. “If you don’t get her first she’s gonna be the last person again. Get her first.” By game 2 these teasers were talking MAJOR SHIT, shutting windows and doors on me, “get out bitch,” trying to pin me in doorways, “die bitch!”, trapped windows, “She stepped in the trap! Quick! Quick!” and even tried to run me over. These cunts did everything they could to try to get me killed......... because I was good. Not because I was talking trash or being annoying on my mic (which I never turned on or responded to their shit talking and teaming), not because I was trolling or not playing the objectives. These people hated me because I was good at the game and infinitely better than they were. How dare I play the game I payed for the way it was designed. But of course, the rhetoric is still: how dare I breathe a word of dissatisfaction with the way others are holding the game hostage and impeding on my experience. Let’s continue to tip-toe around trolls and say not to shame toxic players by holding them accountable and enforcing ramifications for their behaviour. Yes, we wouldn’t want to hurt the feelings of the players running entire lobbies over with a car and we certainly wouldn’t want to restrict online play for groups of players escorting Jason around Crystal Lake, that would be insensitive to the community. This is what the game has been reduced to. And no amount of ‘salt mines’ can quarantine these toxic players. No lobbies were closed and nobody left the game. So what are the ‘salt mines’ going to do about teamers, grievers, and trolls? Gun/Illfonic took a year from release to implement a basic system to reprimand toxic players and couldn’t even do that correctly. They won’t admit that they fucked up for not seriously addressing concerns over the past year as reports with screen caps and videos of toxic behavior went ignored. The gaming experience went from an occasional troll to 2-3 trolls per lobby every match. And let’s not rewrite history about why friendly damage was taken away because the major cause of team killing wasn’t trolls, it was accidental killing while trying to save counselors being grabbed. Yes, there were plenty of trolls over time, but that game element was in need of overhaul. The current state of lobbies includes: Traps by windows, the battery locked in a room, the fuse found but never used, someone walking around with the propeller but never repairing, someone hoarding both keys, running people over, pinning other counselors in locations, locking the back door to Higgins or Packanack so people have to go all the way around, etc. these are tells for trolling and occur so frequent that they’re simply ubiquitous in the game now. I believe it’s too late, but I’ll see what this next update has to say. This game is like an abusve relationship, we’re always waiting for it to get better with the next patch but the promises always fall flat. We love the game and want to believe it can be fixed, but we know it’s not going to happen yet we stick around anyway. That’s the real horror of this game.

    If you don't want emotes then don't use it. I'll use it, I'll buy it. A lot of people will and there's nothing you can do about it. So just accept and move on.

    Trish Jarvis: The Big Sister Yet Another Counselor Topic . Trish's Uniqueness: Trish is a fan favorite character and deserves to be in Friday The 13th The Game. Trish lasted over a 10 minute fight with Jason and won. During that fight she slammed a TV on Jason's head, cut his hand in two with a machete, jumped out a window, and out ran Jason from a house and back. Not to mention protecting Tommy while doing most of that. So she's definitely one of the strongest girls in the Friday The 13th Franchise. Which we do need more females with strength in the game. We also need more blonde females aswell. And who doesn't wanna see Trish and Tommy team up again to kill Jason. Trope: - The Sibling Yes I know, she's a Final Girl. But if I don't give her a different Trope some people will get mad and say "Weall ready have a Final Girl m8!" So, instead of the Final Girl, she can be The Sibling. It works makes sense. The sibling of Tommy Jarvis, she can also have unique dialogue about Tommy. When she's calling Tommy she can have uniue dialogue there too. Stats: Composure 4 - Does Put Up A Good Fight Against Jason But Does Not Stay Calm Luck 6 - Weapon Doesn't Break During Final Fight And Demasks Jason Repair 2 - Has To Have Rob Repair Her Car Speed 7 - Slightly Outruns Jason Stamina 8 - Outruns and fights Jason for about 10 minutes Stealth 3 - Sneaks Into Rob's Tent But That's About It Strength 5 - Puts Up A Good Fight Against Jason Outfits: From what I can remember, Trish has 4 different outfits in the movie. Jogging Outfit - One being her jogging outfit. A White Long Sleeve Shirt with Pink Shorts. Home Outfit - Another outfit she is when we see her in the Jarvis House for the first time and when she's reading with her mom. She has is a Plaid Shirt with Blue Jeans. I Couldn't Find A Image Yet, Will Soon. Casual Outfit - Another one would be her outfit that she wears when she meets Rob which is a White, Long Over-Shirt with another White Shirt underneath. Final Battle Outfit - Her last and most iconic outfit that she wore when she fought Jason would be her long Blue Shirt with A White Belt. Im adding much more to this Topic so stay tuned. Thanks for reading this. And please, fill free to comment your thoughts and suggestions. I would love to hear your guy's feedback this. - Deku Scrub

    Quick Play is a mixed bag most of the time. As a counselor the odds are stacked against you. You can still win but the experience leaves you feeling like the counselors need a buff. Then you jump on a Private Match with a bunch of 150's with microphones. If your Jason your lucky if you get three people and as a counselor it's incredible how fast and easy you can complete objectives with proper tactics and communication. This experience will leave you with the feeling that Jason needs a buff. So what is the answer? Adding more items seemed to make Quick Play a more balanced experience but made Jason useless in a Private Match. Buffing Jason and taking away the item increase only made Quick Play a flustrating experience and only helped Private Match's Jason issues a little. I think that the melee system needs an overhaul. Remove Combat Stance and improve hit detection. Give Jason needs an attack that can hit more then one counselor to make ganging up on him less inviting. Ultimately a Normal/Hardcore setting like Call of Duty could go a long way to balance Quick Play.

    Last straw. "At least weeks away" tells me there's no chance for anything earlier than June. The fact that you wouldn't even say "June at the earliest, now" says that it could even end up being later than that. I'm out. You've lost me as a customer, not that you care - you got my 40 bucks. At least I know you won't get any kill pack/clothing pack revenue from me, for what that's worth. I defended you guys for ages, gave you so much the benefit of the doubt, and the reality is - I was defending people who didn't deserve it. You make me regret backing this.

    This has been something getting under my skin for quite a while now. So i have got to ask, because it seems there is nothing being done in anyway shape nor form. Number one : THIEVES When i seen people with Savini Jason, i would be glad to say to them thank you for backing Friday the 13th. How ever that has completely changed. Now when i see them i find myself going to there profile and seeing level 6 or level 70 etc i know your getting the point here. What I am saying is now when i see them I go yep, another thief because i know they are using the hacked dll file in order to trick the system into thinking Savini is legit, of course i will not go into the specifics. It is so sad to see there are people dishonestly using something they have not paid for and disgracing those wonderful people that where so kind to offer financial support by now stealing the content. As well i know Tom Savini is fed up with people stealing something he created. So my first question is, why have you not been banning these people instantly or putting time into the Anti hack program to make sure these people are automatically dealt with and the true backers vindicated ? Because once people start having the consequences to face the thieves will no longer be a problem but you have got to take the initiative and show the people this community is no longer going to tolerate thieves. Number two : Exploiters I used to enjoy being the most prolific serial killer to hit the big screen, and now to hit the gaming world. Kane Hodder has been so wonderful over the years. From smashing his way into our hearts on the big screen as our favorite mommy loving angered goalie to making his way into our virtual worlds. I used to enjoy hoping on to put myself in his shoes and kill some camp counselors. How ever the exploiting has became so bad, that i cringe when i find myself in his shack with his lovely mother of course. The exploiting that we will say 80% for the sake of those wonderful people i do run across and play with on a daily bases that enjoy the game and find playing fairly a for-filling experience and for those i applaud you. How ever the masses have taken to bullying Jason and exploiting bugs in the system. Let me explain Hitting threw doors, and yes people say Jason hits threw doors. Correct he is a massive Psychopathic killer that has the strength of several men combined and to add to it a very large assortment of some very large and sharp weapons that would easily find there way through wood. Have you ever tried taking a machete a axe or my favorite a baseball bat and swinging it through a very closed door ? It wont end well for ya i promise. Then people go, that's not a bug.. Your supposed to be able to swing a baseball bat through a closed door and hit Jason.. Or use a axe through doors to knock off his mask going for the cheap kill. Then there is the pocket knife bug, people have unlimited pocket knifes. Sure you should be able to use 7 knifes when you only have 1 why not ?. Or the swinging teleport glitch, people swing there weapon and teleport a hundred feet ahead. The mask still on Jason kill, that's a great one. The aim your weapon and glide across the map glitch, oh boy i could go on and on.. We know this stuff is part of the engine issues which is being updated, but it has became toxic to the community, when people know these things are a glitch and they exploit them over and over and seem to feel as though it is fun and fair to take advantage of these bugs and with no consequences in sight why wouldn't they ? It gives them a very cheap advantage in which they have no remorse for taking and driving good fair decent people away from the community and bringing other scum that see there is no consequences when you cheat in F13, so why not come over here after watching youtube and try out those glitches on people trying to have a good time. Guys we know you are working on the engine and that is fine. But my question is, you know this is happening even Kane Hodder has raged about the way things have been let go and Jason has been made a punk so to speak. So why do you guys not hand out Bans ? I am not talking perm bans for exploiting. Simply a 2 or 3 day ban for repeat offenders of course with proper evidence such as a video or photo's. If they want to play, then they pay. We the fans and backers, and fair players deserve to have a decent community to play in. We have been patient, we have waited for Game modes, and bugs to be release and fixed the salt mines coming for those that leave the game and so on. Which if the exploits are left unfixed is going to drive out the rest of what good people we have left, because they will be forced to deal with the exploiters and give them kills or be punished for leaving in which i have one time in the 2007 hours I have played. But these people having no consequences have ruined our community and tainted the Friday the 13th's name. We are glad to be patient while you work on things, but we ask that you help us out as well by enforcing the community rules. Thanks guys Number 3 Hackers The above mentioned has killed the community to the point where we have less than a thousand people playing this wonderful game at a given time. Now we touch on the hackers that have made it even worse than it should have ever gotten and still no consequences to be found. The first two topics have made the community dwindle below that thousand player mark, but then because nothing was enforced in any way for those people, now we face a new tragedy which is Uber Jason Hackers. This Jason has no hit box, and is only stunnable in one of three ways "Firecrackers, Knife, Shotgun" On top of that, these people also feel that Jason should be wearing a utility belt full of all his various characters weapons in which, They have altered the save files and the death moves as well. One to give themselves something we have all been patient and waited for which is not even finished. They have given themselves Jason X other wise known as Uber Jason. As the honest people we have waited patiently for the developers to release the content in which they are continuing to work on before its release. How ever Hackers have decided to give themselves the advantage by enabling Uber Jason in the save files and taking on the role of a invincible Jason Voorhees, in which counselors can do nothing against and yet it still continues to be allowed and has even had mentions from developers on how to fix your game if you have used this content after the patches that where supposed to fix this hack but of course did not, basically giving the hackers and cheaters the go ahead by saying hey guys if your game is broke from you cheating in the game all you need to do to fix it is this. Really ? As well people have hacked the save file by re arranging the saved move sets for Jason and allowing all kills in the game to be used, in which i spoke about Jason having a utility belt full of his weapons. Well that is what i am talking about. I would love to be able to use all kills in Friday the 13th but you have got to also realize this makes no sense in any way shape nor form for Jason to be carrying lets say, his spear, then when you go to kill the counselor he switches to his fictitious weapon which now is no longer the spear in which he was carrying, but now has magically transformed itself into a pair of sheers and uses the Roy kills .I have been part of discords that offer these files and i have removed myself from there presents "I mean really they are not that hard to do yourself" and I have removed them as friends and refuse to play with them. Now i would have no issue in any way shape nor form with this, if instead of being weapon locked Jason had to find various weapons on the map in which to perform his kill, but that is not the case. As well they are using content that is locked such as clothes that are not meant for release at the current moment. But we the honest and fair people are made to endure these things as people laugh at us and make fun when we try and say something about what they are doing they try and make it sound as if what they are doing is fair, right and in no way wrong. So my final questions comes down to this.. Why would you allow these people to disgrace the good name of decent people whom have offered financial support to your project ? This makes kick starter and yourself look bad, and allows no one to distinguish a proper backer from a common thief. as well you where super quick to throw out a story about someone doing a temp job and stealing Savini keys and selling them and quick to offer bans up when it came to profits, for those involved in purchasing those keys, but when someone again steals the skin by altering files and making not only your company name look horrible, but as well taking away from those that offered to help you with financial support you turn a blind eye and deafen your ears to the community. For the people exploiting known bugs in the game, i can understand why you would not want to simply perma ban them if it was something that was not there fault and is something you are working on updating, how ever that is not the case. You are updating the bugged engine in which i am proud of you for doing, but with people accidentally finding a bug, well that has long passed.. People know they exist and they just continue trolling the already very small population in which is killing the community. You may be afraid to start throwing bans out to people because there is not many people left to ban. But I hope you realize if you take the needed initiative and start banning these people that have caused all these issues I assure you the community will rebuild itself with proper, fair and a appreciative respectful player base. Or you if you do not want to do the right thing then release the server files in which i can promise you have already been stolen because i know of underground servers that exist and they themselves will not tolerate cheaters. So give us the people the right to govern our own communities if you are not going to govern the only legit one you have created, so that we can have a fair place to play. As for the hackers.. I am appalled at the fact this has been allowed to go on and feel as if there is no cure in sight. I mean i have sat threw some very bad things since May 26, 2017 in which bugs have caused issues and have not received proper hot fixes and nearly broke the game. I have waited nearly two months at a time for issues that where caused by other patches to be addressed. I have played every day missing maybe 3 weeks since May 26th of last year of this game. I have been along for the journey and I have now 2007 hours in the game to date all the achievements and all of the tapes with over 600,000 cp saved for legendary perk releases. I am saddened and sickened by the actions that are allowed to plague what could be a great community player base of fans and simple players alike for this wonderful horror film classic. Please take time to address the issues that need to be addressed and please stop allowing these trolls to ruin our experiences, you guys are on to something here that could break the records, or continue to go down in flames. Please extinguish the disasters flames and salvage and rebuild this wonderful community. Some may say it is to late, but with faith and hard work we can make this community strong and full of some wonderful people. it is up to you whether you decide to allow this wonderful iconic franchise to die or choose to breath life back into it. Or wait until the fans give it a proper home on a proper governed server made by us, the people. Good luck and Pamela speed my friends.

    You could have exited the cabin through a window, you could have picked up the keys and stayed in the cabin, you could have ignored the keys... I don't see how you were baited into dying here.

    [Shifty's possible internal monologue]"I know what is coming and when(ish) it is coming, but the time to announce certain information is not yet nigh. Still, interest is a good thing, and silence tends to breed discontent around here. I'll post something coy, just to be clear that the team is listening and might have something to say, soon." [Likely internal monologue of some members of the community] Wait a minute! He capitalized the "H", which is normal at the beginning of a sentence, but that wasn't a complete sentence, especially with the ellipses at the end, which, as any fool knows, indicates the omission of two or more sentences. So, the capitalized H here obviously stands for Hodder (may he long reign), but the two or more sentences. could. be. OOOH! They could refer to prison sentences! Which clearly recalls the simultaneous jail time served by two characters in Jason Goes To Hell: Creighton Duke and Steven Freeman! That can only mean that we will be getting 2 for 1 Voorhees Burgers as a new pickup item in the next update (lower case h stands for hamburger. Keep up!) His refusal to say the word ground beef in any of his previous posts up to this point CONFIRMS it!

    Here's an idea... Create a whole new game where the counselors have different abilities, dance fighting free for alls with bonuses where Jason dangles from a disco ball and everyone hit him like a pinata where rare emotes and special twerk abilities fall out! Counselors can emote to their hearts content and have all the advantage over Jason. Meanwhile, for those of us who want what the title of THIS game emplies, add an option to either Jason main or counselor main or random. Keep it in line with the movies as it's meant to be & Problem solved!

    @ShiftySamurai I see harm in how the dancing emotes are currently. We have a game where chain-stunning is possible and dancing emotes are favoured by trolls and exploiters. It degrades the game, destroys immersion and benefits griefers predominantly. All dancing emotes should have a stamina cost. I would have no issues with dancing emotes then. Taunting Jason by dancing should come with risk- that should be obvious.

    @SUPAH JD Your suggestion is stupid and misguided. Thanks for providing nothing of value to the conversation.

    Can solve suicide trolling by just giving xp kill points to Jason, the way it should have been from beginning. He is the one that forced you to climb 4 times through a broken window or take a leap of faith out 2nd floor window. Give the man his kill...

    I wish councelors would realize this is Friday the 13th, based on an op, maniacally strong, serial killer. Who generally happens to kill most people he encounters and not scooby doo where tbe teens have a higher chance of making jason look like an idiot, and or killing him. You try to take Jason on, it should be a very slim chance you walk away or leave him dead. As i don't recall watching any of these movies and seeing a bumbling moron in a mask getting manhandled by 17 to 20 somethings at summer camp. Jason should be OP period. Or if you like your odds of beating him constantly, there is a playable version of him in mortal kombat where you can whoop up on him until your heart's content.

    Eva Watanabe [Sabrina Lee] (Friday the 13th Part VIII - Jason Takes Manhattan) Trope: "The Little-Shy Girl" Overview: She's a girl determined to make sure her scholarly studies are completed. She manages to keep her composure when witnessing her friend Tamara's dead body and encountering a mysterious masked killer (but not for long.) Gender: Female Composure: 6/10 (For the most part, she was well composed when seeing Tamara's body AND Jason, but she started going in a panic when the chase began.) Luck: 2/10 (She nearly got caught doing drugs and she could've loss her science scholarship. She also died in Jason's hands) Repair: 8/10 (She seems to be very smart, but doesn't make very smart decisions) Speed: 4/10 (It seems like she has some experience with running, but isn't really great at running fast.) Stamina: 6/10 (Same applies with Speed) Stealth: 8/10 (Shy girls are quiet; she managed to not scream when seeing Tamara's body. However, she made a lot of noise when running from Jason though, so her stealth points went down by two.) Strength: 1/10 (She doesn't have any battle capabilities and watches Julius box along with Tamara.) -Gameplay- Eva Watanabe [Sabrina Lee] is a repair character who has slightly higher-end running capabilities. Her speed and Stamina are far superior than the other repair counselors. She is well intelligent, which also gives Deborah Kim some competition because Eva is smart similarly to Deborah, but she can run much longer. Eva has terrible battle capabilities, which is why she has a One in Strength and Luck. Eva also has slightly higher composure to keep her slightly more sane when Jason is within her vicinity. Eva is a character that could change the meta of the game. Most players nowadays play as Vanessa, Buggzy, Fox, Tiffany, Chad, etc, but don't have any repair characters in the lobby because they get easily killed off. Adding Eva can solve the dilemma of no repair characters in the lobby. Eva can repair objectives by herself or with other players, but it's strongly recommended that she repairs with someone nearby because of her low-end combat abilities. Eva's main choice of weaponry should be either Firearms or High Stun weapons. Eva's weapon will easily break, so it's also recommended you use high-durability weapons like the wrench. -Appearance- Eva Watanabe [Sabrina Lee] is Chinese and has Native Hawaiian blood within her. She wears a dark olive thin breton-striped shirt with X-Shaped suspenders. Her lower body includes a pair of bright yellow shorts in coherence with a black belt. She also wears black stockings and black flats. Her hair goes past her shoulders and ends right above the back of her waist-line. Note: Sabrina Lee is her alternative name in the event that they cannot use the name "Eva Watanabe." @Chetork what do ya' think! @IcrazyKid855 @Barbara Ann @Flyin_J @Gummybish @TiffanyIsBae @FinalBoy @StripMonopoly @Yoshman2523 @VoorheesAJollyGoodFellow I tagged everyone here who agrees to add Eva in : ) @TiffanyIsBae if you want a high stamina and repair counselor, Eva is ya' girl!

    As title says, it's very poorly programmed and a terrible game mechanic to have Jason basically become fully "INVINCIBLE" and immune to any kind of damage or way of killing him just because he goes in water. There should be a way of damaging or killing Jason while he is submerged in water. Hell, Tommy even does it in the movie. I would add items and things on the map like life vests that counselors can pick up and they would essentially work like a pocket knife if Jason grabs you in water. It would stun and damage him. Shotguns should also be able to hit and damage Jason in the water. I hope the next update introduces new ways to damage or kill Jason in the water. It's desperately needed and would make F13 much more fun.

    I'm not sure if I should have started a topic about this and it's fine if it gets shut down if there isn't much to discuss or if this has been mentioned. Recently I discovered that you can hold the A button (on Xbox) while approaching a throwing knife and release the button when given the prompt to pick up the knife and you will retrieve it. This has worked for me 100% of the time. I know there has been an issue with trying to pick up knives not being very responsive. Hopefully this is a good way to avoid that and maybe this will help some people out. That's it. I hope this wasn't a pointless thread or should have been posted elsewhere.Cheers!

    Or how about instead of repeatedly complaining about the grab and demanding balance changes, you simply ask for help. That should be your immediate response rather than singling out one mechanic to blame for your losses. Everything has a solution, you don't get wins for free, they must be earned.
