    Beginning the first of July and continuing over the last ten days, there have been hacking attempts on Friday the 13th: The Game affecting matchmaking, gameplay, and player progression. We are in the process of conducting our own internal investigation and have engaged a third party international computer forensics company. We are working with our development partners toward preventing further disruptions. These attempts and the harm to our player base constitute a crime. So, in addition to our other efforts above, we will also be fully cooperating with any resulting law enforcement investigations. We have not detected any loss of or unauthorized access to any personal or financial player information. Due to the criminal nature of this intrusion and the ongoing investigation as to its origins, we are currently unable to share additional information.

    Let me get this straight... The servers are down because some cocksucker got butt-hurt about getting banned (presumably because he was hacking/cheating/being a douchebag) and decided to act like a spoiled brat about it instead of growing the fuck up and refraining from taking it out on everyone else? Somebody REALLY needs to get a life. If you're upset about getting banned, that's your problem, not ours. All you've done by fucking with the servers is demonstrate what a little bitch you are. It might take a while, but eventually the problem's going to be fixed and normal play will resume. Server problems are temporary, being a butt-hurt little fuck-boi is forever.

    They have to be careful how they word their response to the current situation, lest something said is taken out of context. No matter what is said, a portion of the player base won't be happy. That's always the outcome of bad news. Some problems are not so easily diagnosed, or solved. It would be nice if life worked that way.

    Players have continued to play this game even after waiting months at a time for a patch. Even if a patch takes longer than six months, there will still be people playing, even if it would be fewer players.I Also, this is an English speaking forum. If you wish to quote and/or respond, kindly keep both in English when you post.

    I would like to thank everyone at Gun Media for getting this issue fixed as quickly as possible. @mattshotchaand company did everything they could to insure the survival of Friday The 13th: The Game. As a player I am grateful. Please continue to ban hackers. They have proven that their exploits are far from harmless. And i call upon the players to continue to report the abuse. I would love for the exploiters and blatant teamers to be added to the list. They are just as bad. Of course this may be too much to ask but one can dream about the end of this kind of abuse. As a player of this game and someone who loves to play it i have to say that I am sick of ghosting Jasons, coasting councilors, health spray canceling and a host of other annoying exploits. And if you are walking around blocking players into cabins. keeping them from jumping out windows and walking around with Jason like he is your best friend you deserve a ban for harassing other players. The hackers, teamers and exploiters who consistently screw around with the player base took your servers down. These players own your game due to your complete lack of issuing bans. Why don't you do anything about it? Why does the player base be forced to put up with it? I think it's time for this policy to change. If you are exploiting the game and blatantly teaming you deserve a ban. It's time Gun Media. The ball is in your court. What are you going to do with it.

    Players who ONLY slash as Jason are the equivalent to Players who ONLY play as Vanessa. Their only concern is making the game as easy as possible. Is it fair? Absolutely. Is it lame? Absolutely.

    Guys, trust me... you DO NOT want the dedicated servers disabled. It's far better to put up with time-out errors until the servers are fixed than it is to get booted round after round because some whiny-ass 12-year-old (whose mother really should have just opened her mouth instead of her legs) decided to quit and kick everybody out because he wasn't Jason/got killed early/had his sweater stolen/got slashed to death with 2 PK's/etc... Unless you have heard the high-pitched bitch-whining of an entitled little waste-of-sperm telling everyone that if he doesn't get to escape then nobody gets to play, you have absolutely no idea whatsoever how bad it used to be without dedicated servers.

    Sounds like the hackers are trying to hold the servers hostage over being banned for cheating. This would be a golden opportunity for the devs to look like heroes by releasing the unfinished version of Uber Jason as a parting gift to the playerbase as well as the Pajama pack with no charge. This way here, the devs look like heroes while the hackers who have peddled the unreleased content since 2018, would in turn look like jackasses preventing people from playing with new official content. I know know...but still. Golden opportunity for a PR win here.

    Meanwhile your player base pays the price in endless griefing and harrassment. All this while we wait for the fixes you put out every six months. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate Gun for hanging in there and supporting the game. And I know you understand how flustrating it is to get constantly cheated exploited. You did hire Illfonic to develop the game. But that being said many of the players are sick of the abuse and harrassment. This game outright sucks to play sometimes. Not because it's a bad game and has some bugs. But because you do absolute zero to combat cheating and exploiting. Because this is your attitude you have cultivated an environment where if you want to win at all you have to lower yourself and learn every exploit possible. And that to be very frank is bullshit. I shouldn't have to break your game to even have a chance at winning. At the end of the day the trolls own your game. They own it so much that when you tried to ban one of them they shut your game down! When is enough going to be enough? When will Gun Media bite the bullet and hire the people necessary to police the game? Because until you do the trolls are just going to continue to screw with your player base and crash your server. I do appreciate Gun for hanging in there and continuing to make the game all it can and was supposed to be. I have always defended Gun Media and Black Tower deserves a ton of credit for patching this game up into playable state. The fixes and additions to Private Match have been great. This is the last Friday the 13th content we will see until the end of a lawsuit that could easily last ten more years or more. I can't speak for everyone but I do feel that many of us just want to play the game without the constant abuse or requiring knowledge of how to break the game to survive. That attitude needs to change.

    This is one hell of a mystery. Hopefully you can get your perks back. Let's keep politics out of the equation. There's enough to deal with as it is. As far as we know, there's no solution yet. The official word is that it's being looked into.

    Not really. They could just take down the dedicated servers and have us be able to play on P2P. Since those actually work. Instead we get silence from them for the most of this time and nothing happens.

    @Laotian Lam,I agree with taking the time to fix things right. The player base can't bear a rush job that makes things worse. @F13 Seppuku Squad, hosts quitting is a risky option, but would allow people who don't quit to play again. As far as having friends, one could always make new friends. There are some decent players in Quick Play. @aurllcooljay, that was a very interesting topic you made. I wasn't aware of so many of those things you found. @tyrant666, those were some dark times. @Liquid Swordsman, I have ideas for about 36 similar games. The server issues have given me some time to develop them a bit.

    No one said you couldn't post here. This is an English speaking forum. Use a translator if you wish, but kindly post any quotes and responses in English. Also don't respond with an entitled attitude. Even if you don't like the rules, you should respect them. @Dragonfire82877, I'm surprised that such a thing wasn't done. Hopefully nothing worse happens regarding this game. @Laotian Lam, you beat me to it.

    A few things about your post: 1. Hackers are not necessarily "nerds" playing around. They can be people who can have very malicious intentions, and cause massive damage and cost. It sounds like the bunch behind this are of the gray hat variety. 2. Hackers have done far more damage to other targets that are not this game. I'd be much more concerned with incidents involving national security or financial institutions. 3. I agree that the punishment should fit the crime. However one must be careful with accusations, otherwise you could have a witch hunt on your hands. Anyone that has information relevant to the matter should submit it accordingly, and then leave it to the appropriate person(s) to take it from there. 4. A strong enough sentence may or may not stop hackers. Like any type of criminal, some will back down, while others will push the boundaries. Most of us agree that something needs to be done. Let's hope things are done the right way. Hackers might just do it because they can. They don't need a specific reason. Patches take time. It could take longer than six months. Let's hope it's sooner than that. I agree fixing the servers is necessary. If they need to shut them down for a bit to do that, then so be it. Implementing such a thing this late in the game is very unlikely. The "Salt Mines" was an attempt to curb bad behavior, and didn't quite work out as intended. I'd be willing to make that sacrifice, even if others wouldn't.

    Does NOBODY have any patience anymore? All you armchair Game coders/developers who think it's so easy go apply at Gun media and help them out instead of complaining.

    Due to the existing problem of freezing the game on dedicated servers, could you please disable the dedicated servers so that players can play on their hosts as before when there were no dedicated servers

    It's a shame this is even happening. The game has more than enough issues without this one. People don't need money for doing the right thing. Cleaning up the player base is its own reward. I think that hackers would less likely turn on each other for money, mainly because they would lose respect, trust and credibility in their social circle. As the old saying goes: "Snitches get stitches". It sounds like they either took a day off, or they are seriously screwing with the player base.

    The only reason Walkies may be useless is if people are using Party Chat instead of Game Chat. Using Party Chat is a mild form of cheating since the game intended for you to use Game Chat. If you want walkies to be useful, play the game as intended. That simple.

    Agreed! Some things you just don't appreciate till they are gone. Now I do miss being able to play the game, even with its problems. One problem being that my CP and perks were wiped out a few days prior to the servers breaking down. 1300 hours on Steam and playing since June 2017, never had an issue with perks until then. Even if they do bring the servers back I doubt I'll see my perks again.

    You would think Trump would have been in charge of this by reading all that. LOL!! This game is done. Ahh well. For all the problems it had, we got our money's worth. Definitely played this game more than any other on this gen's consoles.

    The turbulent history of this game. Not necessarily in chronological order. Not gonna post documentary videos from Aldermach/Beware or Pappus since that would just result in a deletion of the post. 1. Beta delay 2. Release delay 3. Backlash for giving out keys to streamers before release, which led to spoiling how Jason was killed 4. Singleplayer not released or even ready at launch, but used to justify a price increase 5. Various people having to jump through hoops to get their backer rewards 6. Savini being accidentally released 7. Savini code scandal 8. The silence (resembles our current predicament) after launch 9. The banning scandal tied to Dilly Dingus 10. Paranoia started, then stopped 11. Uber Jason/Grendel started, stopped and replaced by Roy/Pinehurst instead 12. Removal of friendly fire, which was controversial, whether for or against 13. Jason nerfs through intentional and unintentional means 14. Savini workshop vanished and never heard from again 15. The Savini Jason redesign, originally meant to be a Jason between Parts 2 and 3 or 1-2 according to Tom Savini if I remember or somewhere in there, instead he was designed to be more post Part 9 and theoretically based off someone from Illfonic appearance wise 16. Glitches and bugs throughout the game's lifecycle...some cured, some still around since launch 17. Engine upgrade which basically crushed the game and didn't do much in the way of making it smoother in terms of wide opinion 18. NES Jason to be reworked and made his own with different music, instead it never happened 19. The Rage change, whether for or against 20. The item locator on the map change, whether for or against 21. The dedicated servers dead (our current epidemic) As you can see, the history of this game since its birth has not been without major controversies and I'm sure I've missed some

    I take my time seriously.. I work alot, when i have time to play a game, i want to enjoy myself. Jason players who only slash are not fun to play with. So, that wastes my time. Which brings me back to 'i take my time seriously'. If anything its the Jason players who only slash or choke that take the game waaaaay to seriously. The Jason players that kill with style, are the ones what make this game worth playing and make it enjoyable.

    Everyone is aware of the current state of the game, while there have been reasons posted on various sites and social media platforms i would like get some info directly from Gun. Not so much as a timeline of when things will be fixed but the information regarding who the alleged hackers are has been posted all over and seen by members of the team. @mattshotcha can you provide any information regarding this? Is the hackers being looked into, is the issues absolutely the result of hackers or other underlying issues.

    Jason has a responsibility to kill for Mother. How he kills is up to him.

    They tried something similar to that before. It was called the “Salt Mines.” They didn’t work. I for one wouldn’t object to them disabling the servers until they’re fixed to allow players to play. I personally wouldn’t be playing until the servers are back up and running though. That’s just my opinion on it.

    This years Election will be Brutal with celebrities Like Kanye West AND EXTREME On both sides. can we add a political religious section to this forum. Im OBSESSED With STRANGE CONSPIRACIES OF THE UNKNOWN. Mystical prophecies. Politicians and Aliens making secret deals. Mad Men Screaming of The End and The Anti Christ. Strange Oracle seers and Dark Prophies from the Dark Gods. Preachers having strange dreams From God. Bible Prophicies. Dark Humanistic and Atheistic Doctors in labs creating evil viruses.

    if at the moment they don’t have the opportunity to quickly fix the problem, it’s better to turn off the server and let the players play on the hosts

    I wouldn't say things are "ok" but if you can connect and play, by all means. There's no damage you'll do by trying. The team is still investigating our options at this time. EDIT: I feel like I shouldn't need to say this, but here we are. If you make a forum post trying to justify why you cheated in a game, you will be forum banned. It's an infraction commonly called "Advocating for cheating/hacking." also known as "Promoting cheating and hacking."

    There's an awful lot of finger pointing and naming/shaming going on. You know what they say about curiosity and cats? One can learn about such things, as the internet has lots of information out there. This forum is not an appropriate place to ask such questions. That is a lot of trouble for PC players to go keep going through. I feel for all of them. There is never any justifiable excuse to cheat in a game. If one can't play by the rules, then one shouldn't play.

    Well... Jason has been killed by the devs and the playerbase already so many times before. Its only natural that now the next step is being killed by the servers and the hackers that still populate the game. All this tells me is once the devs pull the plug on the dedicated servers, the castle is gonna fall down completely. Going back to P2P will be the end. The remaining playerbase won't be mature enough to keep it going.

    Even if we could add new content I would vote no for this. Pretty much any idea that will lead to matches dragging on longer than they already do will get a no vote from me.

    On a similar note, it would be fantastic if you could change your Counselor/Jason spawn preference while in a game lobby. Sucks that you have to exit out of the lobby in order to change your preference.

    If what you say is true, that's royally screwed up. Basically means they knew it was coming and didn't do anything about it. My only question is, if they wanted to cause problems for the devs and show off, why didn't they make all the unreleased content available for everyone to use instead of making the game unplayable? That would have made them look like bigger bad asses.

    Not a good business decision to weasel out on anything. Every project you work on has your name on it. Maybe I’m just being naive, but if I were a game maker — developement or publishing side — I wouldn’t intentionally burn bridges by weaseling out. I don’t know... blaming the people who brought you the game — who have nothing to do with the legal stuff to begin with it — sounds counter-intuitive.
