    This patch is extremely misguided, and seems like service to low skilled Jason players. A smarter patch would have: • reimplemented body blocking • a rage mode effect that reduces the durability of weapons to one use, and or significantly reduces stun time. Instead, we have a patch that allows Jason to become invulnerable just a few minutes into a session. How naive of some to believe Jason players won’t abuse this. Interestingly, in the films, Jason becomes more vulnerable - not more unstoppable - towards the end.

    Nope. It's the best idea the Devs have had since they thought about making the game to begin with. If you have to "rely" on stunning Jason to survive, well I guess you won't be surviving anymore will you? If people will play the game as intended (I.E. escape at the first opportunity and stop trying to troll/bully Jason) they'll see very little has changed. If they want to hang around and dance, well then they're gonna fuckin' die... and I love that.

    Ok since I am reading a lot of comments full of mistakes I joined to forum to speak my truth. I have been playing this game on ps4 since the first week after launch, I played most roles you can play and in the last year I just became a Jason hunter. I have killed Jason more than 300 times on the EU server, and the thing that I enjoy the most about this game is fighting Jason, not trolling or disrespecting, just fighting. I don't cheat, I don't use macros or anything like that why would someone want to punish me is beyond me... Let's begin with a lot of imprecise things I have seen in previous posts: 1: at similar skill levels Jason wins 1 vs 1, that's simply the truth you may win few bouts but sooner or later he will win 2: it takes A LOT of skill to compete with good Jasons and even when you are very well skilled in combat, like I am, you may still make a mistake or stumble and 1 grab is all it takes and you are dead (and that's fair) 3: good Jasons have good chances even against good groups of counsellors and there are many ways to reduce the chances of being killed when you are a good Jason 4: in the films Jason is NOT ALWAYS an unstoppable killing machine. That's a false statement. Jason becomes unstoppable and bulletproof only after Tommy resurrects him with the lightning. Up until that point Jason is just a very strong and resilient human. It doesn't make sense to make him unbeatable 5: at the begining of the game Jason was scary, especially when slashing BUT if you were to time right you could stop Jason, now you cant!!! This patch is simply a punishment for people who like to fight Jason... how is it ok to make Jason completely unstoppable? you remove fighting for half of a match, that's nonsense! How is it ok to basically remove stunning perks for half the game? It cost me hundreds of hours of gameplay to get a perfect +25% sucker punch, now that is worthless... How can you say it is a good idea to make Jason like this? this is nonsense! Make Jason stronger that's fine, I don't mind BUT making Jason unstoppable and limit him to go on his knees to the shotgun is simply nonsense... Please fix this before the patch goes live

    Hey, you guys who are complaining that Jason is "too OP:" Watch a Friday the 13th movie sometime. When you do, you'll see teenagers getting killed. Lots of them. What you don't see are fearless teens talking smack to Jason and beating him constantly while he is unable to defend himself. Those of us who love the franchise wanted a game where escaping Jason was difficult, and would require cunning, teamwork, and luck. It SHOULD be hard, it SHOULD be scary. And it was, at launch. It looks like the devs are finally putting things right. @mattshotcha, the stream was awesome and much appreciated. The only thing I didn't see addressed that has been discussed here was the perk rolling. Are there changes coming to it in a future patch still?

    Jason doesn’t need to be stunned to escape. Remember, the game is about escaping, not Jason hunting. This is a new change and, if it’s not working, it’ll be re-balanced. What I like about the change is that it’s making Jason stronger without robbing the counselors of escape.

    He will not enter rage until 12 or 13 minutes in already, if the counselors don't have a piñata party. In case you know absolutely nothing about our dear Mr. Voorhees... he is the one who is supposed to be a bit more than a 'tad' over powered. This should also be nice for Jason players who spend more than half the match locked in a stun animation... which is pretty far from being over powered. I wouldn't say it will be easier for Jason at all... nothing in this update will alter my playstyle as a counselor and I escape quite often... without having to take a swing at him at all. It just might make things harder for people that want to fight Jason and kill him... but that was the point... It might also turn the tables on the trolls, which was also the point. The goal was to make it harder to bully or kill Jason. And I agree, it is lovely, just lovely. In the stream today, they did say that knocking Jason to his knees in the sweater stun will work normally... but we will have to see after the patch comes out. The shotgun will still stun him in rage mode as well... so if it comes down to a weapon not knocking him to his knees in the sweater stun animation, the Jason hunters will have to keep a shotgun for this.

    Glad fixed most of the glitches but ruined it with the rage update on Jason. He pretty much a god now in game. Least before you had to have skill as Jason. Now doesn't matter. Game a waste of time now.

    Yes i agree wholeheartedly. Some of these Jason players feel way too entitled that they must kill everyone in the lobby or it is a failure on the game's part. They get mad at someone dancing or teabagging them and they take it personally instead of trying to play better as Jason. Now with all the complaining that Jason is too weak, they literally just broke the game for half of the player base that actually enjoy a challenge playing as Jason and as a counselor knowing there's a fighter's chance to survive if they're the only ones left alive.

    LOL. I’m a level 150 player that has been playing since the game launched. I have every badge, tape, and trophy except for Ph. D in Murder, because I haven’t tried to get it yet. I’m telling you all this not to brag, but just to give you an idea of how many hours I’ve logged in the game. I would classify myself as a very high level player. I’m not some newbie mad because they can’t kill anyone as Jason. Being able to “bait” the grab and stun Jason isn’t a sign of skill. It was just taking advantage of a broken grab mechanic. Believe me, I’ve been on both sides of it. And I can tell you, a high level Vanessa, that can kite and bait grabs and run the perks I mentioned before, is going to get the best of a high level Jason player most of the time. And if you are a walking Jason, lol, forget about it. I’ve witnessed high level Jason’s chase high level Vanessa’s for 8 straight minutes. Getting kited and bait stunned. The whole point is that people should not be tracking Jason down to kite and stun him. They should not be passing up opportunities to escape by the cops or in a vehicle, because they want to troll Jason, waste everyone else’s time, and run out the timer. They should be running away trying to escape if possible. Engaging Jason as an absolute last resort. These changes will get the game closer to that point.

    You want to know why this patch is so great? Because I am so tired of seeing people escape/run out the timer from doing the following: 1. Play as Vanessa 2. Run the Heavy Hitter Perk and Medic Perk 3. Arm yourself with a baseball bat 4. Take advantage of a missed Jason grab attempt (due to the animation lock on the grab, not due to a lack of skill from the Jason player), by waiting for a missed grab and then stunning Jason with the bat 5. Rinse, repeat for the last 8 minutes of the round, re-arming with a new bat when necessary, healing if Jason is lucky enough to land a knife throw Nothing will be give me more pleasure than seeing people unable to do that anymore. You should be trying to hit Jason with something as an absolute last resort, not purposely kiting him to take advantage of a bad grab mechanic. Now, the correct thing will happen. When a 125 pound woman tries to hit Jason with a wooden bat while he is enraged, he will grab her and split her in two. As it should be. Sorry all you Vanessa players, trolling Jason for the last 8 minutes of a match is no more. Better actually try to play the game correctly, escape sooner, or don’t go out of your way to fight him earlier in the match, so rage mode takes longer. Also, Jason being able to be stunned when walking through doors was always one of the cheapest aspects of the game, so good riddance to that as well. This is the best change to the game in months. My ONLY gripe is that I do believe that fire crackers should still stun him while in rage mode (but not the flare gun).

    I have to disagree. Making melee weapons usless for half the game (give or take a bit) sure as hell is taking something from counselors. I was and still am all for buffing Jason. But to me this was definitely not the way to do it. It screws counselors the second half of the match. And does nothing for Jason the first half.

    @mattshotcha @ShiftySamurai @wes I want to say the stream was awesome guys. That type of community interaction is something a lot of people have inquired about a while. I hope it gets people interested in this game again. As for the patch, it should make gameplay more challenging again. Bring that fear of Jason back that we missed all too much. I hope you guys get to bottom of the car collission issue and players falling under the map, especially on Packanack small.

    For me, it's not about how easy. It's about whether or not it is fun. It is fun to hide around corners and do a sneak hit. It is fun to square off and fight Jason. What's not fun is looping over and over. Counselors have been neutered. Literally, their balls have been cut off.

    Like when counselor mains got used to having a dozen pocket knives in each match. Oh I remember those tears. Complain about how many Jasons start slashing due to the obscene number of knives, then complain when the obscene number is corrected.

    I'm asking if Jason is still stunned for a few seconds when pocketknived or when he loses his mask. Edit: I absolutely love that the devs FINALLY realized and understood that there was a severe balance issue that needed to be corrected. Sure, people will piss and moan about having no chance to survive or some counselors being useless but seriously, lets think about this for a second. This patch does not stop counselors from kiting Jason all over the map while others repair objectives. This patch does not stop anyone from repairing the phone and calling the fuzz. This patch does not stop counselors from raiding the shack, taking the sweater, and then killing Jason once TJ shows up. What it DOES stop (or rather what it greatly reduces) is stupid shit like this: And it's about fuckin' time. Maybe now some counselors will reconsider intentionally dragging out the match just so they can bully Jason near the exit. The ones that try it anyway are going to learn a very hard lesson in the form of "Shit, we're running out of weapons and he's still coming! Maybe we should run to the cops while we still can!" In the beginning, if you had an opportunity to escape, you damn well took it. I'm glad that's finally making a comeback.

    I like the buffs. Jason can still be used as a pinata pre-rage due to game mechanics. Well, now any Jason can have some payback post-rage! This is a good thing. I personally don't like the idea of being 98% sure of survival before a match even begins... Anyway, he will still have a challenge against master loopers. I don't see this as a game changer though, because good groups who do objectives will eventually get some done anyway, as before. The best part about these buffs are that Jason will be "feared" post-rage. As it should be. Remember, considering the original marketing (play as your favorite mass-murderer and butcher counselors) and that you still get only a 1/8 chance to be Jason, the game shouldn't be catered to the counselors. At this moment, if the lobby is even half decent, there are only a handfull of Jasons I've met (looking at you @RustInPeace ) that kill me almost everytime. Everyone will still have to earn this kill. I understand the frustration though. When you're used to smacking Jason around and surviving without a real challenge, it could be frightning for you to really having to work for it..Especially against (your words) "trash Jasons". Sidenote: I'd happily wellcome even more Jason buffs!

    But that's exactly my point - you knew it could kill you, and yet you did it anyway on the chance you could avoid Jason. If you're that hurt then chances are you're going to die anyway. You have to weigh up the probability: do you want to risk killing yourself just to stay alive a little longer, or do you want to die and have a chance to come back as TJ?

    The idea is to encourage counselors on escaping not engage in a boss fight like a streets of rage video game. Being an expert with Jason or cleaning a lobby doesn't mean shit if you're not having fun at the end of the day.

    .Also, I'd like to remind anyone complaining that the game is now "broken" that from the very beginning (even before the Beta) this game was never meant to be a "Let's go whoop Jason's ass!" game, it was meant to be a "Run away from Jason's ass!" game. The current climate of stun-dance-stun-dance-stun-dance was NEVER intended to happen. With the new changes, the focus is back on ESCAPING, not standing at the police exit chain-stunning Jason for 10 minutes before getting bored and running away. If anything is "broken" by the new changes, it's Jason being the counselors pinata-bitch.

    What kind of Counselors go straight out of the gate to fight Jason lol? I’m sorry, but anyone who does that doesn’t know what they’re doing. Rage initiates faster if you’re damaging him, right? Stop trying to fight him. Swing if you have to, otherwise, get your objectives done and bounce.

    If that what it takes, it’s been a year of Jason being trash before he got a buff.

    The majority of people that just want to fight Jason are trolls that find it funny when the Jason player rage quits and never plays the game again. If these type of people leave the game permanently, then good riddance to them. But I would say they are far fewer than half the player base. If half the world were assholes on that level... we would have destroyed ourselves a long time ago. I have to agree with you on that... hopefully some of these new players will actually stick around if the frustration level is not so high... Most of the new players I see this happen to mysteriously disappear and are never heard from again... and there have been a lot of them.

    Dying in a non Jason trap counts as a suicide. You won’t die the first time you step in it. You’d have to reset it. Either way, it isn’t going to be as easy as calling Tommy and jumping in and out of windows until death anymore. You’re going to need help, and by the time you get that help two other counselors on the other side of the map could alrrady be dead. The changes aren’t meant to make becoming Tommy impossible, just more difficult. If it gets rid of the half that plays like assholes then it’ll be no great loss. They make for hateful playing experiences anyways.

    This could potentially be game breaking especially for Jason's like savini, part 3 part 4 etc. This mechanic could be completely abused by Jason's who do nothing but slash as counselors no longer have a defense against them. If a counselor runs out of stamina while Jason has rage there's practically no longer a way to escape. Combine this with the awful swing hit detection and it just makes the game less enjoyable now, especially as counselors

    Nothing stuns him. Pocket knives still force him to drop you and that animation runs while he pulls it out. But once raged basically nothing will stun him. He can still be killed, it doesn't effect that sequence. I think it's great. If players want to just beat on him it'll be at their own peril. His weapon swing will now hit multiple counselors as well. So if they group up everyone he hits is taking damage, not just the first one it connects with. And I just realized when you hit rage and are chasing those last couple counselors you'll be able to just rage through the doors and walls without constantly being stunned by them waiting there with a wrench.

    you are probably correct about killing Jason, still doesn't solve how silly is the rage invincibility. I suggest you to try a match and see how unbalanced this is. It is harder than it ever was. Try and see. Good thing is that matchmaking is way faster, so props for that

    I believe they said the kill process once the sweater is used will play out exactly as it did prior to this patch.... so a melee weapon “should” drop him to his knees once the sweater is activated... I will play test this tonight and post after... thanks for letting us know about the shotgun not working!

    Don’t you think you’re being a little disingenuous here? Counselors do try to tackle objectives at the beginning of the session. But isn’t it Jason’s objective to prevent that from happening? What do you think happens when Jason interrupts counselors trying to tackle objectives? Should counselors just run away with no means of defense? You are suggesting counselors not use weapons as a means of stamina recuperation, teamwork, and survival at the beginning of the game. Might as well eliminate all weapons because they won’t work during rage mode anyway.

    lol of course they fucked up... Issues: Jason can still get on any roof Hacks like infinite shift and instant break free are NOT fixed (they didn't even bother changing the encryption key) Jason CANNOT be killed in rage Clarification for issue 3: Shotgun has NEVER brought him to his knees which they didn't notice and now he cannot be killed when rage is active. This just keeps getting better and better lmao

    Under extreme circumstances, yes, Jason does occasionally get bested. But again, what you have NEVER seen is a group of fearless teens picking on Jason and beating him silly. You know why? BECAUSE THIS IS NOT SCARY. Why would a scary movie have a hapless, bumbling villain who poses little threat to his victims? Some of y'all want this game to turn into a Wayans Bros. movie.

    In my opinion, this whole "bullying" crap with Jason is/was way overreacted to. Jason had/has the tools necessary to beat any scenario. I first thought this whole reinventing Jason would be a good thing...but now I'm starting to think of all the problems it will cause. Maybe not...but the game was sort of balanced...it needed small tweaks, not this. Just my opinion...well see.

    Damn this sounds like a bad idea. How is the lone survivor suppose to survive until the end of the match now? This means we can't stun him through the doors anymore when he rages through them. If you're out in the open and need to regain stamina while he's chasing you and you try to stun him most likely he'll grab and kill you now. Shift grabbing will be alot easier to do now seeing as the firecrackers can't stun him any longer while in rage. In order to balance this out they should have at least increased the amount of pocket knives again. All they really had to do to buff Jason was to bring back body blocking and make the swing hit multiple people but only in rage mode. In another words make the swing stronger in rage mode. That would have been a fair compromise.

    100% true, Jason is a bitch and has been one for a long time, If they would have left him the way he was at launch people would have had to deal with it or leave...... kind of like what some are going to have to do now. No,I was NOT talking about you, Im a 150 level and have been since the 1st week it got extended to 150

    My problem is the fact that in the films Jason was constantly the embodiment of rage. It didnt take 10 mins or however long they are claiming. It has always been far to easy to stun Jason. He is an unstoppable killing machine from which there is virtually no escape. Take out the kil entirely and force counselors to complete the adjectives to get away. M.J.A. Make Jason great Again
