    Ok guys, I've read enough these days, even after the update, about the "unfairness" of Jason killing teams, and how try to stop them (which is, I remind you, a way to team with Jason) is justified as "killing Jason is too easy" and shit. Well, I've been a player since day 1. I am part of a Jason killing team, and I can assure you that 70% of times one of us spawns as Jarvis, Jason is dead meat. On the other hand, as the killer I've been put down like ONCE in the last 6 months. Keep in mind we play everyday, for hours, my spawning preference is put on "none" and I consider myself an average player and an average Jason. You wanna know what the problem is? It has nothing to do with "game mechanics", "how the game was intended to be played by the devs" or "naughty counselors teaming up and turning me in a pinata Jason :_( " The issue is simpler: 90% of Jason players are absolute simpletons who have to this day NO IDEA how to counter a Jason killing team, or a group hunting. The scenario I come across is almost everytime identical: - My team charges Jason so one of us will die and spawn as Jarvis, and maybe we'll unmask him too in the process. - Jason doesn't see through the obvious strategy granting us exactly what we wanted in the first place - As Jarvis spawns we go get the sweater, usually without bringing the mask so Jason can hear us, and the killer just mindlessly charges us EVEN IF UNMASKED and gets quickly killed. Guys you can get all the buffs you want, and last one was a big one, but if you just charge everything that moves like a raging bull, don't blame the devs or the "teams" if you die. As I told you, I'm a mediocre Jason but I got killed like once in the last 4-5 months because even If I'm no genius I'm smart enough to -disable and trap radio tower - ignore counselors who charge at me with an obvious deathwish until I'm sure I've put down 2-3 players who are not in their team. - Avoid taking groups until you are in rage mode. And even then COMBAT STANCE AND BLOCK! COMBAT STANCE AND BLOCK! JEEEZ! - Avoid the classic "trap the phone, trap the cars" strategy, and instead save my traps for later in game. Again, I'm a mediocre player at best, but I play everyday and I just don't see all the issues you see. Maybe you are part of the problem, ever thought of that?

    As discussed on BEYOND, this patch is coming in as soon as it completes the process. The patch is rolling out to certification now and should be on it's way to players soon. Keep an eye out here for the date, or on our social media channels. EDIT 1: The patch is now live on Steam, rolling out on PS4, and on the way shortly on Xbox One. PATCH NOTES: GENERAL & FINE TUNING Various Quality of Life fixes implemented to the Virtual Cabin 2.0. Removed helium from various floating objects on all maps. Resolved an issue with environmental kills not displaying on Higgins Haven Small. Fixed an issue with the Emote user interface. Dance like nobody's watching… Various Quality of Life fixes for Menu items. ENVIRONMENT AND COLLISION Resolved multiple issues that allowed players to reach rooftops on all maps. Resolved multiple issues that allowed players to reach areas that Jason could not reach on all maps. Made areas where players were stuck less sticky. Fixed an issue where the Shift ability would allow Jason on rooftops. Cars no longer damage players through walls. Fixes applied to prevent counselors from parking the car and blocking Jason from reaching them. INTERACTION LOCKS Corrected several scenarios that caused players to suffer an interaction lock including: COUNSELOR: During bear trap deployment or interaction. While performing blocks. While weapon swapping. While weapon swapping and entering combat stance. During small item use. While dropping items. After using the map. After aiming the flare gun or shotgun. Dodging while dropping a weapon. JASON: When shifting and interacting with items, environment, or counselors. When shifting into water. (He really wasn’t a good swimmer.) JASON SPECIFIC CHANGES Using the sweater to stun Jason while he is already down will not activate the next phase of the kill progression, and will not allow players to kneel him directly from the down state. This was an unintended effect where players were able to stun a stunned Jason, leading to the Tommy Jarvis kill on Jason. Fixed an issue where Jason shifting to avoid the sweater stun animation still allowed counselors to bring him to his knees without the stun.

    I feel bad for the idiots still posting on the official forums, about a game they think is a rip off. Seems a bit pathetic really.

    Hey gang, expect some news early next week. Tuesday most likely. I wanted to get you a status update before the weekend, but it's not firm enough right now to do so. We're working on sorting out what happened with this patch, but also some of our processes here so that we can minimize this happening again. As I said, news/status update early next week, fingers crossed with an ETA, but at the least, a status check in.

    For all the Friday the 13th licence has done for the game it's brought it down just as much maybe even more. I can't speak for the entire player base but I will say that many of us want more content. We are not going to get it so it's time to dust off the original idea and put it into motion. I prefer Friday the 13th to Dead by Daylight for one simple reason. If Jason Voorhees catches you it's all over but the screaming unless you have a pocket knife. I have always appreciated this approach. Your not a killer in Dead by Daylight your a hooker. It's time to get creative and start putting "Summer Camp" into motion. As a player I want more! Ditch the licence and start working towards an original intellectual property. Keep the same style of gameplay. Include the multiple ways to win. Keep the if caught your dead killer gameplay. And stock it with original characters, maps and killers! If anyone can get this job done it's you guys at Gun Media. @wes @mattshotcha you have your fingers on the pulse of 1980's horror cinema. You can make the camp great again you simply have to reinvent it. Sincerely Six

    (This is not sarcasm or irony, I'm being genuine here) Teamwork. That is what's always grabbed my attention most about this game (other than murdering cocky douchebags who believe themselves to have teh 1337 skillz). I've played a lot of online multiplayer games of many different genres, but I honestly think this is the one where teamwork comes the most naturally (assuming you're playing with decent teammates and not trolls). Even for very new players, no one has to tell them to hit Jason to free a teammate or cover a repair counselor while a repair is made. No one hesitates to spray a limping counselor if they have spare first aid, or drop surplus firecrackers or other supplies. Anytime I've ever played sweater-girl, I've always had players either give me spare PKs or med spray, or escort me around as a makeshift bodyguard. And I can't even count how many times I've been limping to the cops with Jason right behind me only to get saved at the last second by someone I didn't even know was there. Personally, I find this aspect one of the most rewarding parts of playing this game (again, aside from murdering cocky douchebags who believe themselves to have teh 1337 skillz). It's a great feeling to escape/survive as a team, especially since technically, everybody could lone wolf it if they wanted to. You don't HAVE to work together, but most players do, and that's what makes the difference.

    I told myself I wasn't going to respond but GODDAMNIT I fucking have to, because this post is just...UGH! You call him a hypocrite while doing the exact same thing you accused him of. Good job. Anyway, let's get to what I want to address. First of all. "Who were these terrible people who asked for god like powers ????" "Oh wait ....it wasn’t the player base? .It was the developers who wanted Jason to feel/seem more powerful in the game!......that’s an actual fact...no assumption.." "In all the time I have been on the forum I have never seen or read about anyone asking for God like/ insta- kill powers so.... I think you did that thing again with the assuming....😉" Are you blind? The devs did it because people were bitching and crying for months that Jason was too weak and that he got bullied by the counselors boo hoo hoo ;( I REALLY hope you're just playing ignorant but somehow I know you aren't. Next. "So then since you are such an epic Jason “main” player.... you didn’t need this “god like buff” and were already getting 7/7 or 8/8 kills huh?" "So what did the patch change for you then?" "I will tell you Nothing since you are a Jason “main” apparently And can Bulldozer these pathetic Counselor ”mains” and go 7/7 or 8/8 still hmmmm? Sounds like there is more to your issues with the patch than this..." The ISSUE with this patch, is that it makes it unfun for both parties, Jason AND Counselor. Nobody believes this apparently, but even before this buff it was EZ as piss to get 7/7 or 8/8 even with a Jason squad on your ass. But nobody wanted to actually learn how to play Jason, so the devs introduced this buff that REWARDS YOU for being bad. Gone are the days where Jason has to worry about being proficient at combat or even caring about dodging Counselor's blows. He WANTS you to hit him, so he can get rage faster and steamroll the lobby. If he hasn't steamrolled it already. This buff REWARDS JASON for being bad a combat and PUNISHES COUNSELORS for exploiting his lack of skill. I can see why so many of the whiners love this patch. It literally rewards you for being bad and punishes counselors for punishing you. It holds your hand and coddles you. And because of it, the counselors are less inclined to punish you, because it punishes them too. Which I feel is incredibly unfair and honestly stupid. It completely devalues being able to fight with Jason. There's no point in learning how to fight properly anymore when the game rewards you for losing. And because of this end game is VERY boring and just uneventful to watch. I'll get to that later though when I address another point you made. Anyways, next. "You have missed the entire purpose of this game and how it’s a love letter to The franchise and the character of Jason Voorhees....him getting beat up by teenager stereotypes is not...they aren’t the Stars of the Game." What Friday movies have you been watching? The ones I've seen either end with Jason getting his ass beat by a teenage girl or Tommy Jarvis. Everyone seems to have this deluded view of Jason, it's really weird it's like some fucking mandela effect. Everyone thinks Jason is some unstoppable god of death or something. I hate to burst your bubble but, Jason loses at the end of every movie. So, trying to bring the movies into this is a pretty terrible argument. If you want to go that route the counselors should win by default every game because that's how the movies go. Sure, some of them die, but one always wins in the end. Moreso, this patch also makes the game even LESS like the movies and I'll explain why. Remember those games before the patch where people would just ring Jason around as Vanessa without even trying to stun him? Remember how boring that was to watch? Well, now that's what you're inclined to do for the whole game, because you're punished for fighting Jason. And once he gets rage he can just M1 everyone with little resistance. (Seriously, I know alot of the community follows this dumb "No slashing" rule, but this buff makes slashing even more of a viable tactic. I never minded slashers myself but, I can't deny this update makes slashing even easier. Atleast before you could counter it by stunning Jason. Now though once he's got you stunlocked you're pretty much screwed since he can interrupt your heals and, well, if he's in rage you can't stun him. So you literally cannot stop him.) Now, this rage buff removes what I call the "Final Showdowns." You know how in the movies the movie usually ends with Jason having one final showdown with the last survivor? Ah yes, that was my favorite scene from Part 6. When Tommy ringed Jason around the table for 5 whole minutes. Best part of the movie. Or when Chris Higgins looped Jason through the main cabin multiple times. Jokes aside, those final showdowns were thrilling for me as both counselor and Jason. And this buff completely removes them. Gone are the adrenaline rushing final showdowns with Jason as the clock ticks down trying to hold out until the sun rises. Now its been replaced with just briskly jogging away from him for minutes on end. During those final showdowns I actually felt like I was the protagonist of a Friday movie having that epic final showdown with Jason. I FELT like I was actually in the movies. But now that feeling is completely gone, and it makes me sad. As for the Jason side, there's no satisfactions in it either. It's boring if my prey can't fight back AT ALL. Where's the sport in that? "Jason can still be stunned and Killed even in Rage so......" No, no he can't EXCEPT with a shotgun. I don't even need to go into how stupid that is. The only time you can stun him with any other weapon once he's in rage, is if you knock his mask off. Otherwise, yeah, hitting him does jack for shit. Overall, my main complaint is that this update needlessly removes options for counselors and devalues skill as Jason. Counselors no longer have the option of fight or flight, which makes for very boring games when the only option is to briskly jog away. As for Jason, what's the point of learning how to fight when they get punished for exploiting your lack of skill anyway? The game does it for you! I don't really have much else to say on the matter, I'll fully admit I am terrible at structuring posts but I just HAD to say something. Because this post bothered the shit out of me. Yes, it's sad and pathetic. And I probably shouldn't have even bothered typing it out but. Well, I already put the effort into it so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Too late now.

    The whole focus of ass has kinda been a calling card of the entire game's run even before the lawsuit. More focus on things like ass and silly ass emotes instead of...anything that matters. Part of the problem.

    Honestly what happened to the playerbase? It’s literally the same couple hundred people in lobby after lobby every week. Every lobby when I’m checking levels and for teamers there’s someone or even multiple people I have blocked because they are a troll, teaming, etc. Playing now is basically me getting in lobbies with people I already had to block knowing they’re teaming, trolling, exploiting garbage. Some of you are on this very forum and know who you are. I’ve caught multiple ‘streamers’ and forum members doing shitty things like placing traps at windows and unlocked doors where there is one way in AKA Packanack kitchen, Packanack utility shack/office. Not to mention obvious teaming and tunneling of non-friend players and intentionally saving friends for last. I’ve seen such obvious teaming from forum members you should be ashamed and banned. Then there are the exploits. I’m not ‘allowed’ to name people but shame on you forum members and trash Redditors that intentionally exploit. Jasons who exploit window glitches with attacks knowing it might bug or create an interaction lock, throwing knives at counselors mid window knowing it might glitch them to climb outside and appear back on the inside, throwing knives at the car knowing it will glitch, sandbagging windows causing interaction lock or just blocking, exploiting/cheating to avoid getting killed by shifting mid stun or morphing away, turning to an object/wall. You trash exploiters know what you’re doing and I see you. This is an independent game and you taking advantage of that is worse than despicable. And then there are the counselors who troll with traps, hoard items, refuse to contribute to gameplay, glitch into the roofs, get into glitched spots and hold the game hostage. There are several forum members who engage in a combination of these behaviors and luxuriate in it. Multiple times I had to turn and counter-troll teamers just to survive. I’m getting in lobbies where it’s me and a party of five or six. That’s pathetic. Go play a private match. I’ve had dozens of lobbies where it was me and my friend versus a party of six doing everything they could to get us killed. This is nothing new. You used to be able to just quit and find a new lobby, now that’s all but impossible as I’ll get piped into the same lobby indefinitely it just get out in a similar lobby TEAMING with teamers and trolls on a mission. Is the playerbase that small and insufferable really? Apparently. The game has never been this disproportionately filled with trolls and exploiting garbage. Such a shame.

    Was in a group of three tonight for a few rounds and on the last match we were up against a Savini who was teaming with at least one of the counselors. This became evident when he conveniently showed up at the phone house despite me repairing it flawlessly. Jason was after one of my teammates at the time when suddenly he stopped mid-chase and morphed to my location as I was running in to make the call. I stunned him and began to flee the scene as he trapped the box and commenced to tunneling me for a couple mins. My buddy makes it to the phone house and before he's even half way through the animation of disarming the trap, Jason stops coming after me and morphs straight to him and kills him. Me and my other partner turned our focus to one of the cars as Jason was now camping the phone. Wouldn't you know it, before we even made it there with the gas he was on us. At this point I switched over to game chat and proceeded to tell this guy what a drizzling shit he must be if he needs Savini AND a spotter to play this game, while also pointing out that despite those advantages he still had only managed to get one of us half way into the round. As I was in the process of switching back over to party chat I could hear one of the counselors tell Jason "kill me so I'll get Tommy". Jason morphed away to presumably do just that. Problem was, they forgot (or never knew) the one other person Jason killed was one of us, who just so happened to get the magic Tommy token and came back. So now, the group is back together, and it's Adam (me), Vanessa, and Tommy, and we're like "F this asshole" and made a beeline for the shack. And since Jason's buddy was now dead he lost access to the map and couldn't quite tell right off hand where we were going simply by watching our screens. We made it to the shack and Vanessa runs in to grab the sweater. Jason shows up immediately where Tommy is waiting with eyes on the target; BOOM. Down he goes. I run in and grab the ax (Vanessa already had one). Jason gets up and I combat-stance attack; off comes the mask. Vanessa passes her ax to Tommy and prepares to activate the sweater when suddenly..........this paper Savini loses his macho balls and morphs away. He had been all hellfire and brimstone with relentless pursuit when his buddy was calling spots for him. Expecting him to sneak attack us with a shift, we all calmly strode back into the shack to reduce his open field advantage and commenced the dancing, flickered our flashlights, defiled Mama V's poor decrepit head in what resembled a cult-circle tea-bagging, and all of us switched over to game chat and heckled this asswipe mercilessly for cheating, and like a typical bully, running like a little bitch when the tables were turned. We figured he'd quit, honestly. All his advantages had been neutralized and he was demasked. To our surprise, he came back. He set traps in front of the entrance to the shack (uh.....ok) and tried to melee us through the walls. When that didn't work he tried knives and couldn't hit us. We were still trolling our assess off both verbally and virtually through emotes/dancing/flashlights/teabags. Right around this time the two-minute warning sounded and he began to realize we weren't coming out, and if he wanted to end the fun he'd have to try his luck and enter. By now we had all stopped moving completely to try to lull him to a false state of security, and..................................... IT WORKED! He finally shifted into the main room with what I'd estimate to be about 50 seconds left in the round. We all simultaneously started to move, and he lunged for me and missed, and feverishly tried to get his big ass into the doorway when Vanessa struck; sweater time! Tommy lined up behind him and entered combat stance with the ax. He strikes and Savini hits his knees. Tommy then calmly, almost arrogantly strode around him and stood there for a second to let him think about it, then.....checkmate! I gotta tell you; I HATE Jason teamers. But, a damn Savini cheating? That's sacrilegious and downright nutless. Watching that bastard faceplant after it looked like he might eventually clear the room with the cowardice was so satisfying. We all cheered and laughed our asses off. Other players we hadn't heard from up till then also chimed in with laughter. One of them said something to the effect of "HAHA!! Killed that flaming dick!" 😄 Going in, we had said it was our last round. Damn fine way to end the night.

    Yeah, sorry you had to come back at such a bad time Don. Unfortunately, Jason whiners are incapable of developing skill in any caliber whatsoever and instead desire victory to be handed to them on a silver platter. I've been steadily playing less and less F13 ever since the patch launched back in January. And let me tell you-- it's heavily killed the PC community. Before the update, the regular amount of consistent players for the game was 600. Now, it's dropped to a mere max of 200 - 250 players. Pretty awful numbers indeed, hmm? (May as well take the game off Steam.) As a Jason main myself, I understand the issues people were complaining about. For instance, the pinata parties were a problem...when the rare incident occurred in the first place. Counselors spawn separated from each other for a reason. (I'm aware it's not always the case) And if you've actually watched the movies, you'd know that Jason picks off his prey one victim at a time. Enough about that though. I'm not one of those people who went to the developers, peasantly begging for an overpowered buff. Instead, I, much like many others, adapted and played the game smart. In result, nearly 90% of my Jason matches have ended with 7/7s or 8/8s. And how? I kept good crowd control, actually moved out of the way when a counselor swung their weapon, (before grabbing naturally.) and best of all; didn't require stun immunity to pull two simple tasks off. Heck, there were some instances where I didn't activate rage at all. And finally, there's playing as a counselor in the game. (Unless you're that jerk who always leaves when the system doesn't choose you to be Jason.) While I did main Lachappa for a while, I eventually switched over to playing Vanessa for the purpose of playing a hero per se. For greater detail, performing selfless acts and ensuring other players escaping before worrying about myself. You know, acting like a team member! Now, once Jason hits rage, it's not so encouraging. And it's not even just that. I'm typically the last survivor due to everybody else being dead or escaped. And usually, there's no other method of escape depending on the scenario. I was content with this situation before the Rage update, given I could stun Jason and give a good chase in the process. Now, it's been reduced to a boring game of ring around the Rosie with a couch or table. Less exciting for both the players and ESPECIALLY the spectators. Quite honestly, I could excuse the godlike buff if the last counselor alive could be exempt from Jason's stun immunity. That's all I want at this point-- a chance to survive when every other player died because they dicked around too much. Give the veteran players who have stuck around your game for this long an opportunity to survive.

    Umm, no you haven’t.... You could claim to have covered the Paramount movies but even that would be an exaggeration. It’s minimizing like this, that turns fans toxic. Where’s....? Sandbox mode - It’s great I can play Jason single player but what about the other half of the game, Counselor play. Forest Green - map Tina’s Summer Home - map The Lazurus experience The Voorhees House - map Grendel You get a pass on the remake as the rights were never secured but saying that you covered it all, when each Jason doesn’t even have his own map is BS. When you can’t play as a a Counselor offline because reasons, I know you’ll say “a believable Jason AI is too hard” but who says we need one to enjoy just being a Counselor or visiting Camp. You actually make it harder for those of us who have spent time explaining things to people when you minimize this way, when anyone can point out the number of things that haven’t been completed, the broken promises and fact that you’re game is barely half done, but you’re only missing some small elements. Bugs, Glitches and toxic players can all be written off by those of us who get what Gun was trying to accomplish, being talked down to isn’t. Saying you covered everything but some small elements, reduces every suggestion that has ever been made to nothing. They’re all just small things not worth the time or effort. I genuinely mad that you would post such nonsense as the above quote. Guns not making a sequel, awesome because anyone who thinks that this game is in a finished state is a fucking moron. Go a head give me a warning/ban that would at least be a response to any of the things that I’ve brought up and exactly the type of fuck you I expect from a Community Lead who can’t do his job. Thanks for posting about the switch on the forums by the way, I appreciate you taking your responsibility to the community seriously. I don’t want another meaningless apology, so don’t bother.

    It isn't new content. It's all existing content being brought over to another format. There will not be anything in the Switch version that doesn't exist in other versions already released. EDIT: also, new code is not new content as long as it isn't coding in an element that didn't previously exist. This is the same manner in which we are allowed to make bug fixes and balancing changes.

    I think this is okay, since it shows how to combat glitchers. Jason gains no advantage by glitching onto a roof; this is actually helpful info for those who hate glitchers in my opinion.

    UPDATE: The team is testing a new fix for the "Bear Trap Method" counselors are using to slingshot themselves onto structures. Given the nagging resistance of this issue, the team is running additional testing on this fix, but hope to have it out to you within a week.

    While we wait for the roof glitch to be fixed, to those who continue to exploit, let this be your warning! (tbh, I have no clue how this happened) Furthermore, upon hanging you from the roof, I will then make you my love slave. You will be dead Spiderman, and I will be Mary Jane -- and that's just the beginning of the sick, awful things I will do to your body!

    Multiple atmosphere changes ended up ruining the gameplay in hindsight. Things like the longer door animations l etc. There are worse changes though I was thinking about. Being able to overadjust the gamma should have been removed immediately. We got people out here running 3 and 4 gamma looking like the middle of the afternoon because they “can’t see” AKA just want to run around. Sound pings were ruined at launch in favor of letting mediocre Jason players spam sense to find counselors continuously with no effort. This has made it harder for counselors to rightfully play stealthily and forced the meta to become nothing but counselors running around and speed looting leaving doors open and windows closed. Might as well, right? Instead of Jason having to legitimately hunt counselors, going toward the slightest ping, Jason just spams sense and crutch plays while counselors run around and scream over everything. The bad programming for counselor screaming has also added to it. When Jason is in stalk no counselors should be crying out, period. The game was initially designed, packaged, and promoted as a game that would force counselors to use stealth, walk and crouch around, and be very quiet otherwise they’ll create pings that Jason will see. Letting sense do all the work for Jason and not penalizing counselors enough for running has completely destroyed the intended dynamics of the game. The sense ability should be delayed or, as many have begged, replaced with stalk in order. Whatever Wes tried to explain-away about stalk being too powerful early on is BS. Jason is stealthy early in the films and should be stealthy, it’s SUPPOSED to be difficult to detect him. Sense being available so early AND being able to spam enablesJason players to abuse it as part of the game mechanics. Take this away and make Jason have to hunt better. I also propose a decrease in counselor speed and higher generation of pings. The ridiculous range in the music cue is already enough. To counter this, stalk and sense should both have a continuous duration and cool down, once used it works the intended duration and cannot be toggled off or spammed. This will force Jason to use his abilities more strategically and counselors will just have to get better at anticipating. Making gameplay more difficult for Jason and counselors makes for better matches. Sigh

    I have yet to see a patch where fixing one thing does not break (often re-break) another. The worst for me after this patch is having to kill counselors over and over again because environmental kills fail after triggering them. It used to be only once in a while that a counselor would be "dead but not dead." That said, I've gotten a few snickers out of Jason looking like Darth Vader using force choke. I call the image below, "You've disappointed me for the last time, Tiffany." 😉

    If you want friendly fire, play in private lobbies. Bringing back team killing would be an even bigger problem...besides what do you think these teamers you're complaining about will do? Instead of chasing you down with a car, they'll just shoot you. The reason why Gun can't do a whole lot about teaming is that it's not always completely egregious.

    There are three things I cannot stand in Friday the 13th: The Game. Teamkillers, glitchers and most kill squads. What especially annoys me about kill squads is when people constantly rig up the game just to get Tommy Jarvis to try and kill you but will barely do anything else. Granted, I'm not a terrible Jason nor do I suck and I have dealt with people trying to kill me before. But earlier, I just didn't feel like dealing with a kill squad when I was Jason and told my friend to back us out, but before that happened I asked one of my buddies to get the sweater so I wouldn't have to deal with people rigging up the game. Of course, I would've still went after him like any other counselor when he got it but I just really wasn't in the mood. Someone else got the sweater before my friend could get to it and we just left, not wanting to bother with them. We ended up coming back into the same lobby as them, unfortunately, and one of the people in the kill squad was visibly angry that I didn't deal with them. He kept talking over me and my friends, not letting us getting a word in. So my friend was Jason 2 matches in a row. Jason didn't go to his knees the first time (which they deserved) and they only got him the second time. Me and another person in our group didn't help him and he didn't help us, even tried going after us when we tried putting the phone together then ended up killing us anyways. For the most part, me and my friends aren't always out to kill Jason. We don't get a bunch of Fox's, Vanessa's or Buggzy's and will still have enough repair people when we need to get out. You're not always going to be able to kill Jason anyways. The only time we'll get out a serious kill squad (like selecting certain characters) is when people are teamkilling, etc. In my opinion, a lot of kill squads are pointless and can ruin the fun for both counselors and Jason's. Sometimes if a random is Jason, I'll purposefully fuck over a kill squad's plan because it's irritating when they care more about chasing Jason down. Yes, killing Jason is a part of the game, but when all your doing is going after him then you're not really making the game all that fun for anyone. Jason is also too easy to kill and needs a buff. I'm glad they updated it to where people who suicide via beartraps or windows won't get Tommy.

    Hello all, I know this has been discussed in the past but if you all could take the time to watch this video I’d appreciate it. This is a perfect example on why tommy should be allowed to stun! So, there has been discussion in the past about it and some people agree with it while others don’t agree with it. My defense is the people who play as tommy and actually act as a hero are very limited in resources when trying to save the other counselors. In this video, I do everything in my power to save these two deborahs trying to make it to the cops. There was absolutely nothing I could do. How is this considered a hero? Tommy is a special character in the game so he should have a special ability to stun Jason. And all I ask is let’s keep the arguments civil and respectful. Let me know your thoughts on this.

    LOL!! Im glad I didn't bother to look at your other posts. You couldn't make a point if you were a stick. Enjoy agreeing with yourself, and feeding your own ego. You aren't worth anyone's time. Baaaai

    Hi everone I quit playing the game for a while and when i came back to play the game, i relized that you can't stun jason or killing him in a rage mode. I find that unfair to the counselor since you make alot of effort to land the hit and that also making it harder and almost impossible to kill him. I've been playing the game since it came out and it gets boring and boring with every new update. Who is with me at this point? How can i reach gun media to suggest fixing this problem ? cause i don't feel playing the game any more

    What an insightful and useful response. I'm just telling the man like it is. I barely even post here anyway. Just decided to come look today out of curiosity since the game is almost unplayable now on PC with how little players there are. And I'm not playing on no european servers. Hackers galore. (Nevermind the horrible balancing. But that's just a myth guys. Jason still needs more buffs!) Nice to see this place is still nothing but an echo chamber and any legitimate criticism of the game is answered with "REEEEEEEEE! GO AWAY! COUNSELOR MAIN REEEEEEEE!" Or because you don't like the criticism given you just discredit it as "Not a legitimate criticism". or "Not useful." This community AND the game is honestly a mess. And honestly it's the devs fault because they share the same mentality of ignoring criticism they don't like. So, I can't even blame you guys for the game's current states. It's all down to how Illfonic and Gun Media handled the whole thing. Now, I guess Black Tower or whoever the hell is in charge of development now. You probably won't realize how you destroyed the game until they finally add a key for Jason that makes all counselors automatically drop dead. Or an instant escape button for counselors. Since if people are so bad at Jason they need even more buffs they probably aren't that good at counselor either. I'll stop rambling now. Nobody gives a shit anyway lmao. Somebody else has probably explained it better than I'm willing to and nobody listens so, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I give up. Either way, I'm off now. Have fun with the game. lmao. Not sure how it's still fun for you guys, you must enjoy watching paint dry too. As for me. I'm off to greener pastures. If you enjoy the game in it's current state, then hey. More power to you I guess. But personally, this game is just boring to me now. And it's probably going to get even worse. So, enjoy it while you can I suppose. Although if you're still here even after all this, you probably will. Seriously though. I loved this game, and it hurts me to see what it's become. Buuuut there's nothing I can do about it. So, no point in trying. >Inb4 this post gets deleted for going against the norm of the forum.

    They’re never going to see or care about your post. All you’re doing is venting pointlessly but it isn’t pointless, we all have to see your temper tantrum. I happen to like the game/forums and would rather if the forums didn’t descend into this toxic nonsense again. You hate the company, don’t play their product. Go write a review on GameStop or something, just do it elsewhere. You’re responsible for your emotions and the actions you take. Now I’ve said my piece and I’m going elsewhere in camp, if you’re calm behave that way. Start by editing the OP and making it clear what the hell you’re mad about. This isn’t a good topic, go fix it so it’s at least not toxic crap.

    Agree 100% people get mad because they can no longer tea bag and troll jason that's all this is. Skilled counselors can still survive the night i witness it all the time i main counselor most the time and i love the new buff to rage feels good.

    If you're so skilled then you shouldn't mind the challenge of a Jason that can't be stunned. If you can't still run the clock out on an unskilled Jason then you were never good to begin with. Sorry...

    This stopped being silly a long time ago, now it’s just “look who’s being a dumbass this week.” If you think the game is dead move on. Your hurt feelings aren’t worth the time to humour any longer. No matter how bad Gun is at their job, those of you who spend the time and energy to be petty for months on end rather than just getting over it, you’re infinitely worse than the pubs you despise. If you don’t have anything constructive to add.... fuck off. I look forward to all the sad faces I’m bound to get, 😘.

    Show me your best clips of you knife killing a counselor from a distance. Here’s one of my personal favorites. Tip for new Jason players- if someone jumps out of a 2 story house instead of morphing outside. Knife kill their ass

    The team is combing through what has been reported since the patch rolled out and we're investigating each case. We're not only looking at what has been reported as a new issue or regression, but also any problem areas where the patch should have fixed an issue, but it is still being seen/reported. It will take a day or two to have a more detailed update than that, but we're looking into it as quickly as possible. I wasn't accusing anyone of lying. I wanted evidence to identify if it was the method fixed so that I could take that back to the team to look at it. I need the evidence to make the case as well. I believe this has been reported, but I will ping it to the team again. We're looking into the patch and identifying what went wrong. Death animation issue is under review and investigation. There is always testing with our patches. What went on here was definitely a misstep but we're investigating righting the ship, as well as ways to limit this type of misstep in the future. No, this was a patch. We will be looking to submit a fix as soon as possible, outside of our planned patching schedule. While I wasn't present in the discussions over the weekend, I assure that all the information has been reported to the team and we're looking into it. I will not have a status update for another day at least, though. Sure, because we're the size of Valve, EA, Ubisoft, etc. I understand this is a tough situation, but with a team of this size, turnaround time is going to take a little more time than some of these massive companies. That does unfortunately leave us all in limbo at times like this while the crew works on things. I will have a status update as soon as we possibly can. Reported these to the team for investigation. I do not, unfortunately have an update yet. I don't know that it's time to "hang em up" as that's a bit serious talk for what is going on here. The weekend was a bit of a scramble, but as I said earlier in this reply, I have no update just yet. The team is hammering away and I should have an update tomorrow, even if it is a smaller status update for you all. The patch did not go as planned and that is definitely something we're reviewing, both as issues with the game, and the process. But I don't think anyone deserves to be hanged for it. With the transition and subsequent work put into the game to sort through some existing issues, a rollback is not ideal. Better to work forward, as much as that seems counter intuitive. This has been noted and is on the list for investigation.

    If they’re making it obvious to let you kill them. Then don’t do it. Go kill other people and don’t give them what they want. It’s pretty easy to counter

    It's working again. All the Jason-mains should file a class-action suit for "Emotional and mental hardship caused and exacerbated by inability to commit mass murder for a period of 6 hours or more".

    In an age where the playerbase is lower (on PC more so than console). I think it only makes sense to allow bot counselors to fill out the team after the final connection screen on the actual maps if no other players have loaded in. I know this has been asked before but I think its become even more evident. @mattshotcha Conditions 1. They would always be hard difficulty with their already set perks 2. They would NOT start with parts in hand like they do in offline mode 3. The bot would never be picked as Tommy unless the human counselor count is below 4 or so 4. They would pick non cloned counselors 5. They can fix the boat and be a passenger, but they cannot drive it 5. This allows human players looking for a game in progress to join mid match and play a bot counselor rather than waiting for a new lobby

    What isn't fair is I paid for the right to have him during the games development phase, whereas you come along after release of the game and simply download it. Then, when one of the nefarious ways of getting him is patched out, here you are, stomping your feet about "unfair". If you didn't know about the game being developed when it was, sorry but that's on you. I didn't know until I heard about Michael being added to the then Early Access game Dead By Daylight. Searching for info on that, I came across the kickstarter & backerkit campaigns for Friday the 13th: The Game, and so here we are...

    What do you expect? 1. Unable to fix their game 2. Unable to fix their game...in a timely fashion 3. No New Content, so people already know its dead, even if it still has people playing...the general consensus is dead. 4. Everything has a half assed answer and its been that way since forever...everything is an answer for an answer that may never come. 'Low Priority, High Priority, We'll Look Into It' ETC ETC ETC Down the line 5. BETTER GAMES out there...why play a game that died literally one year after launch (arguably slightly before), with incompetent fixes, new constant bugs, old bugs never fixed, gameplay that remains stagnant and mostly predictable, etc? Jason Voorhees himself can't overcome these setbacks. 6. Most promises never came to fruition. Paranoia was cancelled because it was apparently 'not fun' but they clickbait hype it anyway, NES Jason never got reworked, they tease Uber/Grendel before Pinehurst/Roy was even on anyone's radar. Then they come BEFORE Uber/Grendel as if those were just clickbait items in a mode with no replay value (Virtual Cabin 2.0). Even post lawsuit with a reworked perk system that's still not happened yet. 7. They absolutely ignore the overwhelming noise/criticism and just hide behind those that praise them on social media. They haven't earned the communities trust and they've done nothing to try to earn it either because they don't care or they feel they won't be able to. They know whatever answer they give is going to be clouded by shady conspiracy/negative overtones. They may pop up once and awhile to talk about the game for a measly hour on twitch, but by and large they avoid most community interaction. Randy stopped steaming games with the community long ago with no explanation given. 8. Double XP still a gimmick, instead of something that should be made permanent. Why would new players stick around in a dead game to slowly level up with the type of players mentioned in your post? Do they want to sit around and wait 20 minutes for some asshole on a roof so they can get their XP? People got better things to do. 9. The Engine Upgrade update was supposed to be the big savior of the game and it was a turning point/deadline of sorts for many in the community and the consensus was it failed to deliver and then the lawsuit news shortly after basically crippled a lot of moral out there. 10. The vanilla game never really got much new added to it, combined with the existing stuff barely fixed and its a recipe for disaster. I can't speak for consoles, but for PC. I 100 percent see where you're coming from. I mean I hate to be this negative and im not trolling but this has been par for the course since launch honestly.

    The Rage buff was not necessary. It was a "we don't really care" band-aid. Want to know why there are dance parties? Well for one, they added dance emotes to the game, just to try and soak up more $$$. And because there is no other way to play then to beat/kill Jason. As it's the easiest way to win. They buffed Jason's speed so much so now you can't outrun him unless you're Vanessa. And Sense is so OP there is no point in trying to be sneaky. Your best bet is to kill him. Plus, the playerbase is so low now (hovering less than 400, half of those playing single player), that the only people left are hackers and trolls. So of course, you're going to get people who dance on Jason's head. An actual solution would be to give Jason diminishing returns on stuns if counselors try to to stun him too quickly. And lower stun duration and chance during rage. Not making him completely immune. Now we have to escape within 5 minutes or you're dead. That won't help the game, it'll make people bored of it as games will be over so quickly. Thy should give counselors a reason to play something other than "Kill Jason". Now it's just a "Watch your counselors die" simulator.

    @Ahab Wow, so i log back onto this account after weeks to find that you still messaged me complaining like a 5 year old. I made up with some people on here after that thread got closed down, but i still see that you can't let it go because you were proven wrong and took the bait, seems the ego is still bruised. Take a ice pack to that bruised ego of yours and have a chill pill son.

    What is the point in standing by the lake and teabagging and emoting like a dumbass? You’re making yourself out to be a fool. Jason obviously isn’t coming out of the lake. Escape in the car or the police. The only person who is holding the game hostage is YOU because you have multiple ways of escaping, killing Jason is not the only way to end the match. Instead you wanna taunt and embarrass the Jason player by being an idiot then complain that they held the game hostage when you could’ve ended it by escaping. It’s not an exploit or a glitch by hiding in the lake. A bitch move? Yes. Should you care? No. We’ve all had a Jason player hide in the lake from us, but it’s not the end of the world. Glitching your way onto the Packanack or Higgins roof on the other hand is holding the game hostage due to Jason not being able to end the game by killing a counselor. That is a glitch, hiding in the lake is not.

    So you ruin the game for a bunch of organized and dedicated players just because you've decided it's not fun. Next time I play pes online I'm scoring own goals every time I play with somoeone who picks Real Madrid just because I'm against that. What kind of sense does that make? XD

    I thought everybody was free to play however they saw fit. Next update let's give Jason a machine gun so he will kill all the counselors before he gets hurt
