    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.

    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." 😉

    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, 😘.

    Okay, I was sick of this nonsense conspiracy theory year ago and I am still sick of it now. The lawsuit happened and it has not ended yet. That is the major thing that needs to be acknowledged. No one has washed off their hands of anything. The main developer has moved on, for obvious reasons, because this is still business and they have to make money. I am 100% that people who are trying their best to keep this game running right now are a small team, very small, because they need to keep the costs low... the game barely produces new money right now, they cannot add anything new and someone has to pay for the servers. Now imagine yourself a game developer. You are a small team and you have been given this game, which was broken in various ways and which you have not coded nor programmed anything for. It must be a very frustrating task to keep this thing up and patch it. The point is... they are trying. I am sure they are just as frustrated with this thing as we are. Patience is a virtue.

    No I don’t want them to ever shut down the servers, regardless of the bugs and glitches I still have a damn fun time playing this game along with others who have a lot of fun playing it. A lot of us would hate to see servers shut down. You’re being too negative saying that. however, the devs need to get their game fixed. I truly don’t think they put in the time into fixing the game like they should be. Especially with the fact that this game was backed by a kickstarter and the player base payed to have this game made and this is how the devs re pay everyone? By not fixing their game? It’s about damn time the devs actually make some progress with these glitches and bugs..... this latest patch it actually affects my game experience more with the environmental kills not working and it is really game breaking tbh....... they brought that bug into the game and then they go to say they’re more focused on fixing the roof glitch and the environmental kills will be fixed in the next patch??! But when the hell are we going to get another patch? 5 months? And who’s to say that patch won’t bring in any new bugs? And we aren’t getting any new content, so we at the very least deserve more frequent patches that will fix things. They always make excuses and say “we can only focus on so much at once” “we’re a small team” blah blah blah. But bugs and glitches have existed so long in this game and their care level for fixing it really shows.

    Update from the Beyond stream: For anyone who missed the stream Mattshotcha said the hot fix that will hopefully end the Roof glitching is being retooled by the team and they hope to get it out to certification and us ASAP.... This hot fix will only focus on the actual interaction mechanics that allow players to gain access to all roof areas around the maps..... they believe that they will have this issue completely buttoned up with this upcoming Hot fix...after play testing the teams most recent build.... The following patch after the Hot fix will then address the environmental kills that have not been registering and allowing players to accumulate hundreds of kills per match... Matt also mentioned the knife throw car glitch and Victoria’s pants also being next on the teams cross hairs.... He also was asked about Jason’s mask hit points and him being easier to kill since the rage buff... and that the team was looking into these as well but they didn’t want to make any changes that were too drastic with Jason’s gameplay... I wanted to post something in this thread for anyone who hasn’t seen the Beyond Episode and wanted to know where we are with the most recent developments.

    All those tags are open as tabs and I'm always combing through. But priority one is getting this roof nonsense sorted out once and for all. We would like to get back on our track of what we're fixing once we do. So cars/knife physics, a second look at balancing, and some other items we've been poking around at. But things are getting back to normal around here and I'll be popping back up more frequently. Thanks for hanging in there and tagging me in. Please do continue to. Even when I don't respond, I use those tags to create tabs to keep them in my active routine. Totally understandable.

    Working on getting the VoD of yesterday's BEYOND stream up on YouTube, but we had an issue with our local recording. I'm going to pull the broadcast from Twitch to upload soon, but can give the basic update here as well. First off, we appreciate the patience. We're working to fix the issue that allows counselors to reach unplayable areas in game, but at a root level. So we've identified the issue allowing the bear trap method, and fixed that. Internal testing was done by our usual testing partner, as well as internally, and then a follow up by our testing partner again, for the sake of being thorough. But through the process of figuring out and fixing the bear trap method, we came across the underlying bit of the issue that could be present elsewhere in the game, just not yet uncovered by us or the community. So we have the predominant method figured out and fixed, but are taking that knowledge back with us to inspect other areas of the game in an effort to be done with this method entirely. Pushing out a fix for the bear trap method now, then investigating further and potentially needing to push a second fix will take longer than just holding onto the bear trap fix while we work through any other potential instances. On top of this, we've refined some of our internal processes to aid in the detection and recreation of issues, as well as to test more thoroughly not just via our testing partner but also more thoroughly internally as well. We've always tested our patches, but we wanted to improve and expand on the process. Now, with extra redundancy checks, we feel we're getting a much better view of the patch in it's pre-certification state. We've also added another CS agent to the team here at Gun. He will be helping with all things CS, including but not limited to JasonKillsBugs.com As for Database Login Errors, please continue to submit reports to JKB. This issue is not very widespread and all the details we can find would be incredibly beneficial.

    It’s very common now. The car is flipping, teleporting, and disappearing every few matches. It’s the new rubberband glitch. Before this latest patch, the car occasionally was glitching when Jason threw knives at it and hit the sweet spot, now it’s crashing, flipping, teleporting into a cabin, or flying off the map completely for zero predictable reason. Driving on a clear road? Teleport into cabin. Jason throws knife and nothing happens? Ok. Barely grace a small rock? Flip. Jason throws knife again and the car flies off the map. There are no clear predictors of what will cause the car to glitch and that’s typical of these clueless amateur know-nothing fly by night ‘developers’ at Gun and Black Tower. This from a company that used millions of free dollars to fund a game they bragged about on social media for being one of the top downloaded games of 2017 yet cried that they didn’t have any money to pay a team.

    Start a QP match as Jason and within 3 minutes, 50 people hanging out on the roof in Packanack? Gimme a break... 2 years and this glitchy nonsense is still going on. May as well just shut the damn servers down already

    Communication with the community costs nothing. So there is zero excuse for that over the entire game's run. Can't hide behind a lawsuit or 'limited' budget for that one. The lack of information, miscommunication is probably one of the few consistent things the game has going for it. People can get antsy over the negativity, but the reality is nobody has any idea what's going on and that's no good. The last time they did 'anything' with the community was when Randy was still associated with the game back in early 2018 with the streams. Other than that, nada. The whole thing on Tuesday isn't even an every week thing (not even always F13) and at best, lasts one hour with VERY LITTLE actual information about anything other than 'high priority', 'low priority' stock answers. You wouldn't know about any sort of 'community' events or double XP until they might actually come out of thin air and when that happens...its a double XP event that should've been made permanent long ago to newer players incentive to want to stick around the playerbase. So even then in the two years the game has been out, its either been a stream with Randy or a double XP event. Not much creativity there.

    DBD is very fortunate in not having the issue that F13 the game is in.... With a License that is completely intertwined in a lawsuit.....limiting what can and cannot be done with it....... If this lawsuit didn’t affect Gun Media, I am sure by now there would have been so many new additions....weapon kills/ new counselors/ new Jason’s and Maps/ and game modes that would have been implemented........I know they wanted to add those throw back pictures of Pamela and Jason with more background info about them before Jason drowned to be found along with the tapes........there was definitely a plethora of things that could have been done if the game wasn’t trapped by the two Individuals fighting over how much money they should be getting........ well now that we know the lawsuit will be on going for the foreseeable future.....Fan films, figures and this game are the only thing to look forward to for the Franchise........And Jason’s legacy.... Hopefully people can finally see that Gun was right unfortunately about the lawsuit lasting entirely longer than they would be able to wait and continue creating content for...... I for one and happy both games exist, as far as I am concerned it’s a win for Us Horror fans ....

    They could do a lot of things to make the game fresh. Some fun weekend events Such as: No perk weekend: Counslors can’t use parks & jasons strengths and weaknesses are removed. Cops only: no cars, just the phone box. Would provide a tough challenge for everyone. Random strengths & weaknesses for Jason. Lucky camper: a random counselor gets a bonus +2 to all stats across the board. ect. Some of the things are off the wall, but that’s exactly what we need. Something fresh. If it doesn’t work it’s no a big deal as it’s a random weekend only event.

    I've been reading all the posts and the debate on Post Rage Jason and buffing him up and how a lot of players think it's too easy to kill Jason. Having been playing this game for about 2 years, I've enjoyed every aspect of the gaming experience. I truly tip my hat to the creators of this game. Being a fan of the franchise and having watched the movies over and over again, I was reflecting on how Jason was able to wreak havoc early in the movies because no one knew he was actually there (except for tommy in part 6, of course). Once the match starts, I play on the basis of planning for whichever jason appears, whether he runs or not, breaking through doors easier, etc. I wonder what the experience would be if I did not have that intel right off the bat. To me, having to guess while trying to survive would add to the authenticity of the spirit of the game. As the game would go on, then you realize what you're up against and play accordingly, or winging it. Just a thought, no hard feelings whatsoever. Cheers and survive the night

    Pocket knife, but not so I can use it as a get out of jail free card from Jason. I main Deb so I like to have a pocket knife so I can silently spring Jason's traps, fix shit and disappear like a ninja.

    I'm still trying to decide how people who are complaining about the people who are complaining meet the criteria of "constructive." I mean, it follows that if people complaining about their displeasure with a product they have purchased is not considered "constructive" then how can someone complaining about those people expressing said displeasure be considered constructive? As you've apparently appointed yourself High Moral Guardian of what people are allowed to express, perhaps you can explain this to me. On the one hand, you say that people who complain should just quit the forum, quit the game, and/or just keep it to themselves. But couldn't the same be true of the people who are complaining about the people who are complaining about the game. To use your own parlance, could they not just "fuck off" themselves? Who asked for their input? Can they not just ignore these threads? Yet, for some reason, they feel compelled to complain about people who are complaining. How is that "constructive"? How is that adding anything of merit to a discussion? Yes, I know, this whole thing is becoming meta at this point. I'm sure people are going to complain that I'm complaining about the people who are complaining about people who voice complaints. It's like complaints within complaints within complaints at this point. A veritable Inception of complaints.

    That's pretty lame. Just stick with me, @Vaderspupil, @Redrum138, @lasse_hei, @pioneer67fkd, and the others we tend to play with. If I'm online looking to play F13, either send an invite my way or I'll shoot you one. The only "rule" we have (sometimes its not necessarily followed) is if a kill glitches and a counselor kicks out (listed as dead), don't be an asshat and run away. Take your death like a champ.

    The game has been Rotten TRASH for over a year between endless bugs and glitches and JOKE sluggish game mechanics. I only play once in a blue moon but when I did it appears its mostly noobs with rotten QP lobbies of horrible players just shouting into mics and not going for any objectives the entire time . . . Most of the veteran players are long gone and the game mechanics feel even worse now than they did 2 years ago. Jason's grab is the worst control in gaming history. . . 6 months from now they know there won't be anyone left. So why "fix" anything? All they care about are their own wallets. Not a working product. In the end it doesn't matter. I would blackball them from the gaming industries or at the very least boycott all their future products so they will never make a PENNY off their games again. Of course, I don't know what mindless sucker would buy another game from them. But I'm sure there will be. You still have people blindly defending them even after they have TRASHED this game into oblivion to the point its hardly functional Hell, you can find less bugs on Atari 2600 Games.

    The thing that's make it a huge low blow for me is, according to Matt, even after the lawsuit is done, Gun Media has no desire to continue to this franchise whether it's a sequel or in any way shape or form. That just gives you a general idea on what so so interest they've always had for the game and pretty much explains the past random double xp events and streams that went unnoticed. You're right that folks will get antsy over the negativity, but if your company is going to operate as a team with low morale then your community is going to follow behind. Simple.

    So now that the lawsuit won’t get settled for another 2-3 years it looks like a movie, new content for the game, and a sequel to the game is out of the window. Currently, all us Friday the 13th fans have right now of the franchise is fan made films and this game. What I ask of GUN media is to please give us more frequent patches that have a lot of focus on fixing the game. It’s very critical the game gets fixed rather sooner then later because players are starting to get frustrated with the issues and are leaving the game. I don’t want to see servers get shut down and I want to see the game stay alive. I’m a die hard fan of the franchise and the game so now that we can’t get a new movie or game we at least need to make sure the game stays alive!! GUN media please fix the game as close to 100% bug free as possible to make the current players happy/bring players back to keep the game alive.

    They have animations of him bending/kneeling over. They can reuse that for him requiring his mask. Since we don't see Jason put his knives in a pouch, we don't need to see him put the mask back on. It can give him back hp too. Maybe the second time it comes off, the mask is destroyed like in part 7 & reboot.

    @BeautyNumber2 Spot on, on everything in your post. Sense should not be able to be spammed, it should work the same as the other Jason abilities. You use it, and for however long you decide to do so, it goes into a full cooldown after. Just like if you short shift. Counselors, especially when hiding, shouldn't be screaming out when Jason walks by them under a bed or in a closet. Holding your breath is an interesting idea, however once you stop you let out a huge gasp which is just as bad as "I hope he didn't see me!" Instead of holding your breath, maybe it should be covering your mouth because you can still breath through your nose. I think back to Ginny in Part 2...she didn't let out a huge gasp when Jason came in the cabin, she didn't gasp when he walked by the bed, she didn't gasp when a mouse walked by her. She did piss herself which Jason somehow realized but she was hidden, and covering her mouth without yelling out like an idiot. The mere fact you character screams out while hiding completely ruins the point of hiding. The problem with making it harder for Jason, is the game is pretty easy for counselors already. So things would need to be changed on their end as well. Make it not as easy to knock Jason's mask off. Make counselors a little slower. Make repairs take a little longer. Make the diving through a window animation, especially a closed window, take a little longer. If you're making it so Jason has a more difficult time finding people, you have to make it more difficult for counselors to get away when he does find them.

    Regardless of what slasher based game is made next, it needs to do a top notch job sticking as close to the source material as possible. At the same time, it also needs to provide a stellar gaming experience. In the right hands, all of our favorite slashers could get a game that would do them justice. You are right about that. I've got ideas for close to 30 slasher based games.

    Nightmare on Elm Street, is the one I’d most want to see. I feel it has the least chance of being made though. To hard a concept for most developers, it’s possible with some more ground work though. Halloween would probably be the most likely to get made and could help build a very specific mechanic to help with the Nightmare game but it’s unlikely they’d listen to me about it, lol. The mechanic in question would be a way to segment a power charging mechanic, with Micheal it would be done by stalking to unlock kills, for Freddy it would be about scaring the players to build up the power to get a kill. I think it would work by observation and manipulation of the environment. Michael would leave a backdoor open or unscrew a lightbulb to generate fear. Freddy would change the environment directly. It’s unfortunate that Micheal doesn’t use traps because I’d want triggering and escaping from traps be part of the generating process but maybe that could be a survivor mechanic in Halloween and a Freddy mechanic in Nightmare. Childs Play has a bit of potential if it’s a slower game or an addition to an existing game. Ghostface could be an epic open world game for a whole class of players, having twenty possible targets could be fun. That’s all I got for now.

    Actually, without speaking for anyone, I think you’ll find that those of us that are still posting regularly, do care about the aesthetics. There’s quite a few examples of how the quality has decreased, I’m hoping things like draw distance will be addressed when there’s an opportunity, hopefully some other things will be returned to there original quality along the way. Not sure if it would be worth it to straight return to the original code, maybe one day they’ll get it set up to run as a LAN and playing the original version will just be another option you could choose. It would certainly be a unique move on the part of a publisher to make all the versions of their game available to be selected. That way you could see the evolution of the game through each iteration, the tournament guys would probably love it. With the ability to see a game this way, you could possibly appreciate it more. Sure most wouldn’t get much play but still, it would be interesting. Sorry got to rambling about pipe dreams, 😋.
