    All things must come to an end, eventually. And while that statement might sound ominous, there is a lot to cover and a lot of news to highlight, so please read on. Dedicated Servers for Friday the 13th: The Game will be decommissioned in the upcoming patch, set to roll out this month, November 2020. What this means is that the game will revert back to peer to peer matchmaking for Quick Play lobbies. The Database Servers, however, will stay active and continue to house all player progression and unlocks, so users can continue to play Friday the 13th: The Game via peer to peer Quick Play and Private Matches. The patch that will go live in November will also be the final patch for Friday the 13th: The Game. The team has been hard at work completing fixes for a long list of player issues to include in that final patch, and the community can expect finalized patch notes to be released in the week prior to the patch going live. The official forums will be archived in a locked state, so that players can still reference the information that lives on the various boards. As for the online presence of the game and official channels, we will be switching to a more minimal approach, keeping our social media channels active for any necessary announcements only. The game will continue to be available for sale, and as such will continue to receive the full support of JasonKillsBugs.com as a resource for troubleshooting. Please do continue to use the support site for any assistance needed. As for the Double XP, CP, and Tape Drop Rates that we set in the start of the pandemic, the team will opt to leave this active indefinitely. The team at Gun wants to thank each and every player and fan that has made Friday the 13th: The Game what it is today. We know this news is hard to hear, despite being inevitable. We appreciate each and every one of you. Stay tuned on what is next for Gun by following along on the Official Gun Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

    Patch Notes - 11.10.2020 - Final Patch Patch 1.39 This patch will deploy on Tuesday, November 10th. Patch is scheduled to start rolling out at roughly 10AM Eastern US Time Tuesday morning on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Switch will be delayed. As soon as we have definite timing for the Switch we will update here. Combat Stance Commonly referred to as Sliding or Teleporting, the team has fixed an issue allowing players to manipulate combat stance changes. Players may still see, when in spectator mode, counselors attempting to perform the exploit, however this is a visual artifact. Pocket Knife Issues Instant break free by using health spray or firecrackers when grabbed, resulting in not only an instant break free but also retention of the player’s pocket knife, has been fixed. Loss of pocket knives in circumstances when firecrackers are used has also been fixed. Jason - Game Play Ability Unlock/Recharge Rate toggle in private matches has been fixed to include both parameters. Lobby icon irregularities resulting in an inaccurate lobby icon have been fixed. Abduction, when Jason is able to Morph while holding a counselor, has been fixed. Mask HP loopholes where use of a flare gun or firecrackers could get the mask to come off too quickly have been fixed. Jason Kill Sequence - Kneel: The issue where the kneeling animation during the Jason Kill process could be repeated has been fixed. Counselor - Game Play Hiding Under Bed: An issue where players could hide under beds and become stuck in a way where Jason could not kill them has been fixed. While it is still possible in some instances to cause the bug, the counselor will be able to be killed by Jason in that state. Lobby icon irregularities resulting in an inaccurate lobby icon have been fixed. Numerous safe spots around the maps have been fixed, including the Pinehurst Roof method by way of Tommy’s bed. Players will now see an error if they roll and sell perks too quickly, but the game will stay functional and no longer lock up. Players can then continue to roll and sell perks, being cautious of not overloading the roll system. An issue causing the Counselor clothing options to not save properly when altering color/items has been resolved. Feel free to go back to playing Pink Cop Kenny. Tommy Jarvis voice lines have been restored, and this is between him and Jason. General Various Interaction Locks have been fixed, particularly those that occurred when players would input either multiple button presses or rapid button presses in short succession, rapid pick up and put down of items, and multiple inputs appearing with on screen prompts. Fuse Box and Fuse spawn for the Cop call has been extended to ensure the fuse does not spawn inside the house with the fuse repair box. With this patch, matchmaking will shift away from Dedicated Servers and onto Peer to Peer Matchmaking for all matches. The game will still be playable online publicly with the Quick Play option and privately with the Private Match option. For more on this change, as well as the status of the game going forward, please follow up with our statement here.

    For some this game is nothing but a dead game that will be forgotten with time. For me, it is not. For most of the people that don't know me, I am really young. When I first played the game I was 14 years old. In my 2017 vacations, I played this game every single day. I used to wake up at 8 AM and played until 23 PM, only stopping to lunch and go to the bathroom (seriously I almost end up having to use glasses because of that lol). So yeah, even though it is just a game, it is a very important thing in my life because the time I spent on it was in that phase that I will probably be remembering every time with nostalgia when I get to 40 years old. I tried to stop before, but I just couldn't the game was too amazing. Knowing that it will be reverted to the unplayable pee to pee dumbshit makes so pissed that I want to jump out of a window. I was not just in the game that I have good memories though. Although I am relatively new to the forum, I had a really good time here as well, even when discussing the dumbest things (Sneaky is still better than Thick-Skinned in my books, maybe I am a lost cause...). But well, enough of talking about this. I had good experiences in this game and in this forum thanks to you guys. I really appreciate the cool way I was treated by the member and by the moderators. I will miss all of this. Bye. ;-;

    Killing dedicated servers days before an actual Friday The 13th is so on brand for Gun Media it's not even funny anymore.

    That's a very clever workaround @aurllcooljay. A lot of games seem to make of a similar circumstance. Hopefully an offline profile save will become a thing, so people don't have to resort to this.

    You realize the object of the game is to escape and not to smack Jason around like he's a piñata right? The rage buff is fine how it is. It accomplished what it was primarily supposed to do, eliminate Battle-Chad squads with their swift-attacker and sucker punch equipped, so they could run around and troll Jason for twenty minutes to entertain their twelve Twitch followers. The Rage buff also shifted the focus from tea-bagging Jason, back to trying to escape the map as quickly as possible. Speaking from a counselor's perspective, I liked the rage buff. Unless Jason was really good, the game had just gotten too easy. It's not perfect, but at least I become a little bit more concerned now whenever I hear Jason's mother start cackling. The Rage buff would never have been necessary in the first place if Counselor mains hadn't complained so much that the game was too hard because Jason was what he was supposed to be... A nearly unstoppable killing machine.

    Using a boat or car is supposed to be risky. If you take the starting sound from the boat, then the car would have to lose it too. While it is hard to escape by boat at times, it is not impossible.

    I just wanted to say thank you for making F13th the game. No game has ever come close to what F13th is, and probably never will. Its sad to see you guys shut off dedicated servers.. But for what its worth. Its been a hell of a ride. Also.. this is one of the few forums that never banned me for speaking my mind. So thank you to the moderators too. To everyone else on this forum that i've argued or agreed with. You made it worth staying around. With only a few days left. I will now try to get myself killed when playing as Jason. I've never been Killed as Jason. But hey, i figure my 1st time should be my last time. A fitting end..lol

    Many people (myself included) are wondering about that. I was also wondering if the option to possess more than 30 perks would ever be possible. Some perks are less useful than others, but some players might appreciate the option to have space for one of each, while working towards the Rare and Legendary ones. With the final patch coming, I'm not getting my hopes up. This game had an interesting run. So has the forum. Best wishes for wherever your gaming journey takes you. Out of curiosity, how many people would you say that you've run down?

    I want that added too, but original grab would force counselors to play as intended, fixing objectives and trying to escape. The game was supposed to be about Jason and trying to survive, not counselors trolling and humiliating Jason /surviving every time.

    @ovmise, this is not the place to ask about a ban removal. Contact f13game@fearthegun.com and plead your case there. Also, it's a good idea to not do things to get yourself banned in the first place.

    @mattshotcha Thank you for directing the info and your dedication to it. I know your post wasn’t directed specifically at us, but just to shed some light on the topic so you can better understand how there came to be the situation you’re identifying in the first place. I will start by saying that JKB unfortunately became somewhat of a joke among the community, due to earning a reputation of being ineffective. And I’m sure reports with nothing but “FIX SLIDING” are a big part of that. But even if it were to be explained as “counselor is teleporting” or something equally basic is nowhere near good enough either. Someone without understanding of the mechanics cannot even begin to explain it, so it becomes a guessing game. That’s where people like myself and my peers come in. For a time, Illfonic did in fact have a steady stream of info from a small dedicated group of us. We had a dev hanging out in our discord who received technical knowledge of every new thing we’d find and pass it on. But even with an abundance of info many issues were just handled incorrectly or not at all. As far as Gun was concerned back then, their general attitude was “we know better”. The casual players always earned more of their attention, despite the glaring issue of not having a deep understanding of the game. There was a general distrust due to differences of opinion regarding changes / fixes and ultimately some of what remains broken or detrimental to gameplay is a result of that. Among many other bugs, the full info for Sliding for example was provided as early as sometime around LAUNCH and throughout the game’s life. And yet it became a running joke that sliding had become a “feature” of the game since it remained since launch despite the knowledge provided to remove it. This is just from my experience and the circles I’ve been in, but I’m certain a lot of people were burned in regards to long standing issues with the game that were either mismanaged or not even acknowledged. IMO that is the reason for the divide between developer and playerbase and why many just gave up on trying to reach out and provide info. I will say there is nothing worse than being told to go to JKB when you know that either a) that process has already taken place with zero result or b) is not entirely applicable. In order for accurate repro and tackling more complex issues, a conversation with knowledgeable players is most likely needed for the best approach. You are correct that there is the aspect of players “protecting” certain things in the game, but that is a whole other conversation. I do appreciate that you are making an effort to rectify problems with the game, and thank you for being respectful and acknowledging our efforts as well. While I’m not around much these days, I fully trust GeneiJin and Somethin Cool to provide any additional help / info on this. I wish you good luck with it all.

    @mattshotcha Sorry if this is not the right place to post this, but I was in a game and someone had spoofed my main Steam profile. When I clicked on the player's name, my Steam profile (which is blocked) appeared in Steam rep. I am playing on a secondary account at the moment. Hackers are able to steal your Steam account and cheat to banish the innocent. This is very serious and I hope the developers will be careful before banning the player that it is Steam account overlay. https://ibb.co/0ZDS7f9 You can back end my account and you will see that I didn't log into the game today because my account is blocked. And to see that I didn't use Jason X 😬 My profile Steam https://steamcommunity.com/id/Deathground/

    Greetings! First of all, we were all upset after hearing the latest patch news, but there are some things left to talk about. (This issue is a problem experienced only by pc gamers, but I would appreciate it if you read it anyway.) Most people have heard that hackers have removed the perks and skills of others. This first happened on March 19, 2020 and I am one of the first to experience it. We have submitted this issue to the JKB many times as a report, but the issue still exists. Hackers somehow managed to infiltrate the server. When I write this to you, they are removing my friend's perks. Ok, this is not about this situation. To us (to reporters) hackers have denied access to the game (after the patch in July). When we enter the game and we are connected to the account, we get a "Database login failure" error. We have already sent tickets to JKB many times, but nothing happened after 4 months since our accounts were hacked. I attached the video with proofs of the "Database login failure" error. Also, soon my friends (reporters) will also attach their videos here about the Database login failure error. We found out how they did it, but we'll never share it. That's why we are so sure that our accounts have been hacked and that only the reporters have been hacked. Please take this problem seriously and I ask you to solve it. Best Regards, Abadon. Video:

    We were told to be patient but we are ignored. I wrote to Steam support about this and they replied that only developers should take care of this. We're angry today, as the developers are releasing their latest patch on Tuesday, and we still won't be able to connect to the game ! mattshotcha can you answer this topic ??? We investigated to bring you the evidence of the hack, you know how the hackers blocked us. We have waited long enough, I think, after several months of waiting. Players should be warned about this, as there are not just bugs in this game, but hackers who keep taking our perks off us and we have had enough of your silence about it !!!

    Not at all. Peer to peer is unplayable. Some PC players seem to not understand how shit peer to peer actually is. I feel sad for people who think they can quit until host consistently. Good luck spending 20 min of your life fiding a lobby and quitting to be a host; and then waiting more 10 min to fill up the lobby; and when the match ends, you have to repeat all of that. The searching process, as far as I know, works that way: on the first 5 minutes, it searches for other hosts, and after those 5 minutes it starts loading to create your lobby. However, it is very inconsistent because sometimes it just bugs and loads infinitely or it just says "game error" and you have to wait 5 min again (or it just creates a room with you as a host in the first 10 seconds, but it is very rare). If you finally do find a lobby, you have to wait for it to fill. Don't think it will be fast, usually, it takes around 10min, discounting people who quit because they were done waiting. Something that I do notice is that the more people you have in your lobby, the more chances you have to receive more players, so playing in a group is the most viable option. I played this game while it was peer to peer because I often had at least 4 friends wanting to play this game. Do I have it now? No, and that's why I am leaving. I don't want to be a pessimist, but this is my F13 the Game pee to pee experience. If you think it's a matter of "just quitting until you are host" and all of your problems will be solved, you'll probably be surprised. If you work or have any obligation, this will be a problem for you because you'll have to invest a lot of time to find one match. If you have other games that consistently connect you on matches, is it really worth it trading them for a game that can take more than 30 min to find a match? Probably not. Things were already very bad with the dedicated server (sometimes took me 10 min to find a match). Imagine now... My honest suggestion is to keep only the good memories and not make bad ones. F13 the Game was the best game I played in my entire life, but things have their time to end; and time flies when we are having fun. It is the end of F13 the Game, but not of Jason, nor our amazing community... nor future video games that will be just as amazing as this one. Sorry for the long text, but I really wanted to say something. Thanks, mattschotcha, these changes are all great. Hope to see much more of both your as well as Gun's work on future horror-themed video games. Hope to rencounter this lovable community in other games. I am very happy but also very sad. Thanks, F13 the Game, but unfortunately, I think it is time to move on.

    The game should choose the person playing as Jason as the host of the match because Jason is the only one who stays until the end.

    I wouldn't say its understandable tbh sounds like settling for the bare minimum of function, just because it can be finished doesn't mean that finding a cluster of bots all hiding in the same house in 4 different closets is anywhere close to an enjoyable experience not to mention the cabin by cabin sweep you have to do 90% of the time for the final bot who is stuck under a bed somewhere or frankly even acceptable after it wasn't a "high priority" on the last patch but the last patch wasn't THE LAST patch. leaving the bots in this state may function but its not enjoyable at all and now it never will be when frankly your game is entering a state where bots will be 10x more important to the overall experience not trying to be rude but its just not understandable nor is it acceptable. nothing i can do about that obviously but im just sayin

    I've never really looked at it as "counselor main" or "Jason main". I do believe in character mains (Jenny, A.J. Part 3 , etc.). I'm like that 99% of the time. The other 1% I pick a choice counselor or Jason and play a few rounds. That's a pretty clever idea. Being set on Random, I tend to be Jason 25-30% of the time.

    Any updates we get before the end could make slight adjustments (if any) to the Rage buff. I doubt it will go away completely. I see your point. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. Counterproductive players will probably always be a thing. They are still out there. If one doesn't have to adapt, they won't bother to adapt. That's the nature of gaming today. Welcome to the forum. The game needs more humble players. I agree that having a good time trumps winning or losing.

    Do you mean on the Single Player Challenge, Strip Poker? If you do, there’s a kill on Debra, you have to wait till she leaves the card game and goes to her own cabin. You approach her cabin and there will be a scream in the distance. Debra gets scared and will go for a walk pasted the bathrooms (if you have thrown AJ through a window Debra can see she’ll freak out and you may miss the archery kill). Debra will turn at the bathroom and head across the target side of the archery range, if your Jason is by the bow and arrows set up, you’ll get a prompt. It’s a very satisfying kill. In the regular game, you can find a health spray normally by the archery range on the Crystal Lake map, by the outhouses. The mini archery range on the other map, by the road, can have a shotgun (or used too, been awhile since I used it).

    Because it was promised to us backers and Gun keep their word. You're being selfish by asking them to purposely stab a group of their earliest supporters in the back "to make some nice money". Also, for 'services rendered'? What services? I've been a forum mod for almost 4 years here and I never asked for anything for 'services rendered'. Savini Jason will never be released for sale.

    It all depends on the issue. If a new issue arises and it's not too much trouble to fix, they'll probably fix it. There will probably be one or two unintended issues that arise due to the patch. I hope not, but I'm prepared if it should happen.

    @Abadon Mate, if you want a sincere response to your post, from the person who matters most, then you need to tag in the Community Lead (Matt). Not sure if @Mayday tagged him in correctly, but so far he has not responded. This topic has been raised before and there was no definitive outcome after the last patch dropped. It wasn't until the hackers doxed the servers for all platforms that they actually acknowledged it being a problem. In a nutshell - if the issue is not going to be resolve in the final patch then it never will be. And considering how long they have known about it, it would be foolish to maintain hope. Sorry to be so blunt, but it is what it is.

    Sadly we've all heard the news that F13th will be shutting down their dedicated servers while still storing player progression. I have played since, I believe, 2017 or 2018. And I have not prepared myself emotionally and mentally for this moment unfortunately because I didn't think it would actually happen, it just seemed like one of those fictional things to me. I wanted to make one last topic (Idek how many I created, if any) to say my last goodbyes to the forum before it's locked because I rarely made an appearance when eventually for me, it became boring, but I did stop by once in a great while. Goodbye everyone ❤️

    Could you guys atleast look at this issue, since dedicated servers are going away, some people like to play bots and not gonna want to play online half the time since it's going to turn into p2p.. I love playing bots and would hate to run into this problem where they get stuck in the hiding spots like outhouses and closets. A few people like myself have been reporting this for awhile now and I think it's fair to have it checked out for the single player people before you guys wrap up. After this patch is released, hope this fixes the problem but if not, I would appreciate you guys to check it out if it's reported. Also I forgot to mention if this new patch does mess up the bots somehow, it would be nice to give them a good fix up.

    are you guys seriously not addressing bots getting into hiding spots and never leaving for the rest of the round? you have known about it since the last patch that didn't fix the issue and this is the LAST patch you plan to push out and its not mentioned at all in the notes? so its not being fixed? you know how boring this bug makes offline bots? instead of a thrilling chase with the final camper i have to hunt all around the map to find the bed they are glitched under cabin by cabin.

    Going to post this & be on my way but you guys have waaaaay too much high expectations on players these days like way too high. Seriously you make it sound like casual play is a problem to people with your type of skills when in reality everyone has to start somewhere to both learn & be better or just i dunno, have fun? Like legit fun by laughing, playing for the moment & have a good time. If you want a lobby that meets your criteria then host a private match with your friends or something & play with them if you want a challenge cause in public lobbies you gotta have your expectations low otherwise you'll be disappointed. Based on my experience i have more fun against casuals then your lvl.150 elitist players & yes i'm calling them that now cause the majority of lvl.150's that i've encountered both on the switch & ps4 have used exploits like "Jason tech", talked down on counselors for doing a poor job or "suck" despite being new in general & counselors ... ugh i don't even want to talk about them. Look i'm a lvl.150 on the switch since 2019 & on the ps4 for about 3 months & i still play like a random most of time plus during my run as Jason i never talked down on anyone especially low lvl's or even 150 who play casually cause i know what it's like to be other guy (i never forgotten my roots) but instead i give them advice or be willing to train them to be better & yes you read right i actually offered my help to make them a better Jason but of course no one accepts because they're either afraid of me or i'll be too judgmental? I dunno but bottom-line i play for fun & willing to help a newcomer out instead of expecting more. Also OP i would consider watching old Friday the 13th game footage from when the game was launched cause if you compare Jason from then to how he is now you'd see how nerfed he is now even with the rage buff.
