    You guys deserve more than a standard form press release, and the man himself is working on that.

    Dude, you gotta post this stuff yourself, it looks bad when we hear it elsewhere first.

    Since Friday will no longer be getting new content. I would just like to thank everyone at GunMedia, IllFonic and everyone who backed the game. I can honestly say that this was one of the best experiences I ever had with a video game. Especially a multiplayer one. That is very high praise from someone who has been playing video games from the age of three years old and generally can't stand online multiplayer games. The environments, the characters, the Jasons are all so authentic and the gameplay was so fun. Thank you so much for all the great content. In a lot of ways this game took me back to my childhood. I was born in 1978 and I grew up with the Friday the 13th series. I was actually the cool kid at school because my awesome parents let me watch awesome films. I would tell the kids at school the gruesome details of Jason Voorhees' adventures and they would wish their mom and dad were awesome enough to let them watch those scary movies. Last May I was driving to work with the classic 80's music station blasting tunes dialed to eleven down the dark and lonely highway 195 near Austin Texas. I put quite a lot of time in at work you see. And for a solid year when I had time to play Friday the 13th was the game I chose to play. Thank you to all the wonderful people here on the fourms who I played with and argued with and agreed with. You guys helped me pass the time on my long and boring security shifts. And when we play together it's a ton of fun. And lastly I want to thank @ShiftySamurai for being the community manager here on the fourms. Thanks for putting up with us and our many gripes. And @wes I think I speak for everyone when I say that I want you to keep your promise to update the game and polish it up and get us console players those dedicated servers. That's all I really ever wanted from the game at this point anyway. Jason Ayotte aka Alien Number Six

    We will still be fixing bugs and other issues players find in the game, and we are still bringing dedicated servers out for our players on consoles.

    It's simple...you post it HERE before sending it off to bloody disgusting. That's how you control it. Everyone this news pertains to READS HERE. Posting it on bloody disgusting is just announcing it to a bunch of people who already forgot about the game.

    I gotta say, this is shocking. It might finally be safe to say "RIP F13: the game". Without future content this game is dead in the water. Fixes or not. It's been fun.

    I’m starting to get the feeling that we’ve been scammed. Everything the devs have done so far has seemed super sketchy and it seems like they might just be using this lawsuit as a way to get out of releasing the promised uber jason dlc. I feel betrayed, lol.

    Fair enough. I just think most of us would rather have the bugs fixed over piling more content onto a broken game. You're right though. Some people absolutely appreciate quantity over quality. You're a big part of the reason why the game is in the state it's in right now.

    It comes across like maybe they had an emergency meeting over the weekend after their latest patch screwed things up even worse again, and decided hell with it, not gonna be able to milk much more from this game and we obviously can’t fix it, so let’s pull the plug and use the court battle as the scapegoat
  11. 5 points
    The one thing no one is saying is that this is not a permanent thing. Yes, future development has to be postponed until the lawsuit is resolved, but that IS finite. It could be weeks or months, or yes, a year or two. Again, neither Cunningham nor Miller want to see this franchise shrivel up and die. They both want the lawsuit to end amicably so that money can be made again and the franchise can continue. I, for one, can and will wait. I'm confident we'll see Uber Jason, Grendel and more. We just have to be patient and let it happen in its own good time.

    Nailed it. Just add it to the list of many, many things that make this game a fucking joke...Only these guys would post what @ShiftySamurai did up there and somehow think that's a smart/rational approach. Guess I'll go buy a couple burner accounts for hacking purposes now...Main one won't have any violations so I'll be fine. *shrug* I don't even know what to say anymore. It's like these guys want to be the laughingstock of the industry. Doesn't matter anymore. Game died when they utterly failed on the engine update and the patch that followed it. They lost any and all remaining credibility they had (and that really wasn't much to begin with). Word to the wise: If you're ever gonna back a project on kickstarter - make sure the devs involved aren't total hacks. This is why I refrained from backing Hide or Die. That game will likely turn out worse than this one...

    Campers, You may or may not have seen the press release circling around the internet about future content for Friday the 13th: The Game. We're still sorting through the pieces while trying to shove our hearts back into our chests. Once I have a clearer picture of what details I can discuss, I will. We CAN work on bugs, balance, performance, optimizations and of course dedicated servers. That's what ILLFONIC are doing as we speak. Sorry, I don't have more to share at this time, but I didn't want total silence on this topic. This really sucks. I need a drink. -W

    Devs already confirmed dedicated servers last year. Devs already confirmed Uber Jason and Grendel Map. Devs already confirmed taking 5 months to patch the game would fix issues. Devs already confirmed a whole fucking lot that never happened and never will happen. I'm not sure if you're familiar with Tommy Callahan but his Dad once told him that a guarantee is just words on a box. You can print a guarantee on any box and take a shit in it but all you got is a box of shit. Guaranteed.

    Fucking bullshit. And even more bullshit that we learn this from a random news site. Shows how much we, the backers that made this game possible, mean to GUN. We should have been informed of this long ago. Not find it out like this. More bullshitery from GUN. Also, if this game gets killed before dedicated servers are released, guess what... We will literally have NOTHING. It’s also really cool that all the hackers have Jason X. But we won’t.

    I will be on the game always. I just cant do the forums anymore. There are some very well informed knowledgeable people here. Met some great players. There is a new toxic element to it and it makes the forums not fun for me anymore. Woe is me type shit. Thank you for the Shits and Giggles.

    So, there is really an argument in the subreddit and the forums regarding the balance of this game. I mean, you might have heard these quotes or similar things said: "Jason is underbalanced!" "Why does he get knocked down a lot?" "Counselors are too OP!" "Jason needs buffs!" "Jason is not fun to play!" This obviously proves that many people think that Jason is underbalanced. In many instances, I have heard the idea of making Jason almost impossible to stun or at least very difficult to stun. As neither a counselor or Jason main, I will do my best to present no bias and present both sides of the argument. Many people have come out to say that Jason is extremely weak. Most of the time, they bring up the fact he gets knocked around like a pinball, and that counselors are too OP, but here are my thoughts on this. I think Jason is completely balanced, although could use minor tweaking, and he is fine where he is. People often complain about counselors being too overpowered, but I disagree. For one, each are extremely good in different areas and terrible in others. In what regard is the counselor too overpowered? To me, counselors have everything to fight back against Jason and escape, but Jason can still prevent this. That's the point of the game. Some characters will be repairing escape objectives, and others will be buying those counselors time. I don't think that combat in-game needs changes. Sure, it is annoying to be stunned by a bat, wrench, axe, or pipe, but the thing that always fucks me up is that many people I have encountered have said that Jason can't do anything to prevent it. Wrong! He has the ability to block, to dodge, and the ability to just hack the counselor to death. Blocking is normally the best option in these situations, and gives Jason a chance to defend himself. Blocking completely negates stuns if he blocks. Of course, he has a set chance to block, but his chance is still fairly decent. Also, to the people that think that giving him a really high stun resistance, that would be broken. For one, many counselors are centered around buying time for their teammates and stunning Jason. If Jason could not get stunned very easily, then Jason would almost always kill everyone. Additionally, many counselors who lack speed, strength, and stamina need to stun Jason to be able to defend themselves. I saw a thread here the other day that counselors should get no stamina for knocking down Jason, but I disagree with this entirely. For one, those counselors who lack athleticism will easily die then, where they already are easy to kill anyway. It wouldn't be fun dealing with so many people playing Vanessa or Tiffany, or anyone with a high stamina stat for that matter. Nobody would want to play counselors with low stamina then because if Jason shows up, they'd be dead. They would not be able to get far at all to help themselves. Jason has everything he needs to annihilate counselors, and the counselors have the opportunities to defend themselves and protect themselves, but Jason also has counters to those. I'm tired of people saying that Jason is underbalanced. This is clearly a balance debate that won't go anywhere or be completely resolved, but here is my analysis and thoughts on combat in this game.

    Just think, Bigblue.........When you joined we got off on the wrong foot and didn't really like each other. I said things, you said things......but we found 1 or 2 things that I think we agreed on. I think you're probably right about this too. ? But I still don't like you. ?

    Why is this game dying? I mean they said all future content is canceled in their statement, but I think this case will be cleared up in a week or two. Then they can get back to work! I can’t wait for Uber Jason and dedicated servers. It’s coming soon guys. Be patient! oh I also hope they give us Savini Jason for this short wait.

    I don't know. Devs are in full defense mode deleting posts that criticize them. "Operation blame miller" is in full force and it seems to be working. Don't get me wrong, miller is to blame, but let's not pretend Gun/Illfonic is the victim. Off topic from your OP, but needs to be said.

    I love seeing all the legal experts here and people that can see the future. Can one of them tell me the winning lotto numbers? This sucks, but people who are saying the game is dead, great! Move on. Either be patient and wait for updates to fix the game, and MAYBE see future content, or really just fuck off. Its really fucking annoying reading the same shadenfreudes on here. Bitching and being irritable isn't gonna fix anything. Crying me a river over a freaking game. Rub one out and feel better. Anyway, as an Xbox player, ill see how bad it is before I continue to play or just wait for a new update. I for one wont bitch on here, ill find something else to do or play until things are figured out.

    It's great that they have "poured their hearts & souls" into this game, but maybe they could try pouring some "dedication to their backers" or "Honesty in their communications". Maybe a sprinkle of "Actually fixing glitches" and a dash of "Following thru with what they promised in their Kickstarter campaign". Shit, while we here, they could fill up a big glass full of "We are sorry for consistently saying one thing and doing something else". Fact is, we can stand here kicking rocks all day and it will not make a single fuck. We are turning on each other even more, distracted by the arguments between ourselves and in the meantime, where are those "heartfelt & soulful" developers? It's after 5pmEST so I imagine they are all driving home, and have hung up their "developers hats" for today. They ain't worried about the condition of the fanbase, for sure. They've already been paid and let's face it.......... Money is the driving force in any business, not fanbase, not passion for an IP. They've even said that this forum is the last thing they are concerned with and if you don't know........ WE ARE THE FORUM. Without US, this place is an empty webspace with some Gun Media Info & some Friday the 13th pictures. Today's press release to "news outlets" should've clued you in, because if they cared about US.......... They would've posted here before the articles were published.

    No one should be fine with this. Without the ability to generate any income, how long do you think Gun and Illfonic is going to want to fix bugs/glitches/dedicated servers at a loss? Even worse, since everything is online based minus playing against bots...how long do you think Gun and Illfonic are gonna keep the servers up and going without any revenue? i would not be surprised if everything is shut down by the end of summer, except for the ability to go kill bots.

    Too many unanswered questions... what’s new right. From what i read it’s anything AFTER june 2018, sonin theory, Uber Jason could still be released in the next almost three weeks. Second, several articles make it sound like this was not a decision forced upon the game makers, but one they just decided to make. If that really is the case, it sounds like they are just using it as an excuse not to make more content and just move on.

    Already out of reactions, but this was VERY well said. People need to take a moment to breathe before jumping to conclusions. Especially with something like this, where not even the people involved truly know what will happen or what this means. Everyone needs to take a step back and let them figure this out. This is not the end of the game. This is a temporary situation that will be resolved when the lawsuit is.
  32. 3 points
    Are you seriously this negative or is it something you do for attention? Either way; your inferences are inaccurate to say the least. It amazes me that people like you actually come here, read, and post on something you have such animosity towards. You do not know how long the lawsuit will stall things; at this point no one knows. You do not know what will be done (bug fixes etc) and your statement which contradicts the official statements is just your usual vitriol. Will the game die because of this - well that depends on how long the lawsuit goes on for. Will the devs work on fixes and dedicated servers...I believe them when they say they will. You seem to assume the worst on every aspect which I hope is just an act you do on here and not a true characteristic of you in the real world.

    Why can’t Jason X be released??? First, he’s already in the game. We all know that. Second, HE’S NOT FROM A FRIDAY THE 13TH FILM! That’s why it was titled “Jason X”. There’s no legal reason not to release him.

    This explains why they rushed such a huge update out blatantly unfinished and broke the game. It was then or never. They can issue a few bug fixes over the next few months, and if the legal dispute isn't settled in good time then the game will end.

    It's great to know the folks at GUN and/or Illfonic think so highly of their game and playerbase that not only do we NOT get news like this in ANY of the subforums, we all learn about it through a forum members post from a different website!

    What, no new content or emotes and any new updates can only be bug fixes. How...horrible? Ironic, a limiting lawsuit forces the game to do something it should have been doing THIS WHOLE FUCKING TIME!

    Most of us are fine with this. People have been asking them to forget about content and focus on fixes for at least 6 months now. Nevertheless, can't be surprised this is how we're learning about this. Forget an e-mail to the backers they're failing. Forget posting this to your community before bd did... I doubt we see many more updates at all, fixes or otherwise.

    Could not agree more. Emotes contribute NOTHING to the game. Which is what happens when gaming goes from a fringe hobby to being mainstream. Back when the audience was substantially smaller, games HAD to be good out of necessity, or they failed and a company went bankrupt (and it still does to this day, under the right circumstances). Now, with installation bases in the tens or hundreds of millions for consoles globally, the margin for error is as wide as ever; developers/studios can take risks, but they can also make stupid decisions as well--and have a much larger cushion. Ask EA how Battlefront 2 is going. But to your point, gaming development is a bloated industry that is going to go the way of television. Quality will continue to deteriorate while the people at the top continue to focus on alternate revenue streams: season passes, loot boxes, micro transactions, etc... even this game is falling prey, as we're on our third kill pack and have had multiple clothing packs. Perhaps the rubberband glitch in the game is a metaphor for the development process. I literally spent the entire weekend trying to force myself to play and just shrugging my shoulders and saying to myself "why"? If you think they give two shits about what we want, you're sadly misinformed. Game development isn't about giving "the fans" what they want, it's about one person's singular vision. Back when it was indisputable Jason needed buffs (I'm too lazy to figure out which patch it was), this community provided a veritable tsunami of feedback and suggestions. What did they do? Ignore us completely and marginally buff Jason's running speed and the number of traps/knives he had. Meanwhile, they've continued to tinker with the grab reach/range, making it difficult for anyone not playing for multiple hours a day to adjust and master the new timing and mechanics. You can claim "Offline bots!" all you want, but the fact of the matter is, there's no substitute for playing against a team of well coordinated human opponents. Again, they continue to whiplash around, vacillating between the blind eye towards addressing valid bugs, issues, and concerns, and remaining content to focus on distracting us with shiny baubles of no practical value (Virtual Cabin 2.0, Uber Jason tease, clothing packs, emotes, single player challenges) all while ignoring the largest contributing factor to replayability and player retention, the asymmetrical pvp. Additional Single Player Challenges or buffs to the Offline Bots are only papering over the gaping holes in the product. The pvp needs to be fixed first and foremost. It has more bugs than a crackhouse on the edge of a swamp, and as pvp is the only means of gameplay that retains any sort of social component, I find it borderline disgusting that the focus continues to be elsewhere. If they were to magically make the pvp disappear from this game, what's left of the playerbase would all but vanish overnight. Using your little kitchen analogy, when you order medium rare steak, and they send you out a salad, you damn well better start complaining, or else the next course will be a barium enema followed by yoga.

    A set chance to block damage, not stuns. The only stun you will receive if you are blocking will be the stun off the demask, which means two things - you would've taken a ton of damage already (with the tiny amount of block damage being enough to finish your HP) or Buggzy was laying into you with a machete when one of your blocks failed. This is because block damage is so miniscule, even with 10 Str. To give you an idea, a heavy machete with 10 Str deals 80 damage but on block it only deals 5 damage max. They are not demasking him off stuns, as actual stun damage even off a heavy axe hit is between 2-5. This is why machete is the only reliable weapon for demask, not only does it deal more damage vs axe but axe also has high stun chance. You can break axes on Jason and still not demask. But regarding Jason mask HP, I absolutely agree it needs to be buffed. That is a no brainer and something I've been saying for months. That is because you do not understand how to use combat stance. Majority of players don't and it's something I am constantly explaining. Combat stance shouldn't be thought of as a "stance", it should be thought of as aim assist. Because that's exactly what it is. Combat stance should always be activated before a swing, either as counselor or Jason, because that will lead your swing directly at the target. The players that don't use combat stance for attacks are the ones you see wildly swinging and whiffing in the opposite direction for example. Both light and heavy attacks can be performed in CS even on console, with light being the better option unless you're trying to demask, as heavy has bad tracking (but more range and roughly double damage as counselor). As Jason, combat stance can be used for a variety of things. Not only attacks, but also perfectly centering targets prior to a quick toss knife, chasing after a counselor which will automatically rotate you if they change directions suddenly, strafing, and even laying traps precisely. It should always be used as a quick in/out in combat, to perform its function and exit out after, so you are retaining your full mobility. Blocking should be used in the same way, quick block the attack and exit out of CS after. That is one thing that did not need to be tied to aim assist however, as block already has full 360 coverage anyway. That is because the Jasons you are playing against do not know how to block. They know the controls, but they don't know how to use it effectively to both pressure counselors and defend themselves at the same time. The technique is to bait the counselor into hitting you, and the way you bait is by draining stamina and/or dealing damage with knives. 1 knife deals 30 damage, if you throw 2 that is now 60 damage and instant cripple for a non-thick skin counselor which means their mobility advantage is gone. Only thing that will save them is spray and they need to do that in your face which is a risk. Stamina can be drained quickly with Shift, as counselor needs to run or they get grabbed. For this reason it is best to run your Shift to its limit instead of trying to grab at the first opportunity, since good players can evade it easily. Once you put counselor in a position where they need to hit you to regain stam or buy time if crippled, you keep good spacing, watch for their swing start up and that is when you block. Once they start they are locked into swing animation, you take the hit and then you grab off the block to punish. Not even a dodge cancel on hit can escape a perfect block grab, as dodge is a teleport (counselor stays at point A until they reach point B, regardless of animation). Alternatively you can throw knife during their swing start up instead of blocking, and interrupt the recovery with grab. Only the inexperienced Jason is going to be slowly walking after you in combat stance holding his block up, which is very foolish since a counselor can simply slowly jog ahead and outpace him. They can also turn and burn simply to regain stam, as they still gain it on a blocked hit. If you aren't host, yes combat stance now has longer entry time and that is not intended. It is just another bug. They can block knives at the cost of losing weapon durability. For that reason, blocking knives is not worth it unless it is close range, as even mid range they can be easily dodged. I mean dodge through movement, not the dodge mechanic which costs more stam and should only be used on hit to avoid punish off a non-stun. Lot more to say on this topic but that's enough for this post.

    I did and it did. They will fix it. Give them time. Or they wont and people will be forced to pick another game and flame on that games forum. But no matter what happens world keeps on spinning brother. Sun will rise, birds will chirp and time will march on. People are to vested. Im leveled out have been playing this game for a looong time. There has always been shit wrong with it. Remember when you would get sucked into outerspace? Could get on top of cabins?Anybody who ever expected this game to run like a mainstream game set themselves up for dissappointment. It was a good game created on the cheap with money from fans by a smaller studio. It did extremely well, probably surpassed the creators expectations. Since I was like 10 I wanted a game where you could play as Jason they brought that to me. I never did much if any online gaming until I heard this was available for download because of this title I purchased a ps4,the psn, purchased the download, and a bunch of D. L. C. Because of this game I have found other games. Enjoy it while you have it, cause it aint always gonna be here. Quit making winning rounds life or death. Play it or dont, but you will be much happier if you make an attempt to enjoy it. Ive liked my time on the forums. Getting news, bullshitting with people etc... Even met some good players but some of you guys are fuckin toxic. Im out. Ill be on the game(F13th) but not the forums. Later guys.

    And I'll bet 95% (being generous here) of the posters of this thread don't even realize how much work goes into development, bug fixing, enhancements, rework, testing, etc. I do it on a daily basis. It's unfun, tedious, frustrating, and gut wrenching. And imagine doing this work for ungrateful customers who are slamming their fork and knives on the table, making a loud enough rant/crying to be heard from the kitchen just adding tons of more stress to their already stressful environment. If you guys think you can do better, try it. I triple dare ya.

    The thing is that people unrealistically expect round the clock updates, and everyone is entitled to their personal accounts. Shifty's complaint about being tagged isnt the result of a case of this or that account, it's a case that people are hounding him on his personal account during personal tweets that have absolutely NOTHING to do with the game and demanding answers. That's simply not cool. If Shifty tweets about his breakfast, he shouldn't be bombarded with questions/accusations/witchcraft/conspiracy theories regarding Friday the 13th. Let the man enjoy his breakfast, damn. The people at Gun Media and Illfonic are just that: PEOPLE. They sweat, they bleed, the piss, they shit, they eat, they sleep just like anybody else and expecting them to be at everyone's beck and call with all the answers 24/7 is just ludicrous and rude.

    Yes, the Unreal Engine, basically the most versatile, well-regarded, and best-performing graphical engine in existence right now, is the cause of all the bugs and glitches that this game is riddled with, and has been for the past year. Yes, not the devs. At all. Unreal Engine is the culprit. Think about how every other game on the market that uses it is also a glitchy, bug-ridden mess. Every game, bar none, from indie Kickstarter projects to AAA developers with multi-million dollar budgets. I have no idea why all of these suckers keep licensing the Unreal Engine when every game turns out like this. Yes, this is a well-thought-out, informative, and helpful thread on the part of the OP, and everyone giving his posts the 'laughing' reaction icon should be ashamed of themselves.
