  1. How has the players' choice of counselor and their behaviour/playstyle changed, starting from the release until now? For example, back in summer, lobbies were full of A.J.s, she was considered the BEST counselor. Nowadays, I almost never see any A.J., and rarely play as her myself. Most people have moved from a stealth-oriented towards a combat-focused playstyle after realising stealth and composure weren't that great as they were thought to be. However, many counselors today only seem to fool around, throw dance parties in the main cabins, gang up on Jason during the whole match and do not give a shit about objectives - even the Deborahs and LaChappas. I am also guilty of playing almost exclusively as A.J. back in the summer, but have recently switched to Adam/Fox because I've given up on stealth and like to have some combat potential while still being able to repair things, though I often choose Random. Has your counselor "main" and strategy changed during all those months?
  2. ^ I'm not saying Stealth isn't useful at all. It just seems pointless on high repair characters because Jason will patrol objectives anyways. However, it can indeed be useful on Tiffany because she mostly stays away from objevtives, can sneak into Jason's cabin and run away fast and for a long time. Stealth+Stamina is a good combo imo.
  3. It isn't that hard to catch the car since the speed of -shift Jason has been buffed...I've recently encountered part 4 (!) Jasons who seemed to appear out of nowhere and arrived right in front of the car.
  4. Though not from the 80s, there is one in Final Destination 3 (Erin), though she also seems to be goth-ish. I feel that A.J. should have been a readhead.
  5. Didn't happen to me because because when I speak, Jason often seems to think I'm a 12 year old boy/younger child, which results in quite the opposite...aka tunneling
  6. I'd like to know which Jason is your favourite (or currently the strongest in your opinion) as of the game-changing October & December patches/Jason nerfs. Has your choice of Jason changed ever since? My favourite right now is Part 8 because he has no serious weaknesses, is very adaptable and his destruction is helpful after the combat stance "exploit" has been patched. He has neutral traps and his shift is controllable but not too slow for the car. He isn't too bad at slashing either. I also enjoy sneaking up on counselors, though their scream occasionally ruins it. Prior to the October update, I LOVED playing as Part 2. Any Jason could easily grab people and + destruction didn't matter that much; also, objectives weren't marked on the maps. But now, due to the amount of pocket knives, Jason's new grab range, an increase in trap tanking and in Jason's vulnerability, he seems to have even lower chasing/ fighting potential, and isn't that great at objective control anymore either. I remember just after launch, lots of people had him as a preference. Are there still people out there that enjoy playing as him? Who's your favourite now?
  7. It's diffucult to answer because you have already mentioned the most important things. Jenny does have some combat and kiting potential thanks to her luck (hence why I prefer her over A.J.), and you've already mentioned the stamina regen rate. Restful or marathon can really help, also thick skin/medic for more window juking and damage resistance. Well, at first this sounds similar to Vanessa you might think However, one major difference imo is that Jenny should not immediately seek conflict with Jason...unlike Vanessa, who likes to distract Jason from the beginning. Instead, make use of the fact that his sense isn't too strong in the beginning, stay away from large groups, gather some important items and when the time comes, be prepared. Stay inside cabins because most high composure characters are slow. Jenny is said to have 8.5 stealth, make use of this and get surprise attacks on Jason. That's also a difference from Vanessa, whose noise pings Jason will see inside cabins. Also mind you that I'm not suggesting a selfish play style, just saying that Jenny should avoid LARGE groups because most of them will already have Chad/Vanessa/Bugzy, making her redundant. She can, however, try to protect a fixer counselor. So yeah, that's basically it, not much new information though. Jenny isn't top tier but can still be fun to play as, or if you want a "challenge" as some might say. Haven't played Mitch a lot. He seems to be a "mixture" of A.J. and Jenny and worse than both because he can neither hide properly (only 6 stealth, unlike Jenny's see above) nor can he defend himself. Idk if you consider 7 composure as high but as far as Adam is concerned, he is more of a fighter-fixer and can be played in a more offensive way, whereas Jenny is more defensive.
  8. I don't see the connection between beer and stamina either, but maybe with another stat, and it should have a downside...Think of fallout, maybe it could give you +strength or composure, but decrease your intelligence (aka repair) or luck (stumble more often) for a while. Or energy drinks could give you a short speed boost, but at the cost of composure and stealth (the side effect should last longer). Or imagine being able to use a magazine that can give you +1 repair
  9. It's an interesting idea, but in order to balance it, Jason should be able to kill each cop. Here's an idea: There are 4-5 cops who come from both exits and split up. Both counselors and Jason can see them marked on the map (they can run anywhere, searching the camp). Once a counselor reaches a cop, a cutscene plays and they automatically escape. However, each cop can only take one counselor (the first to reach them). So no more taunting/dance emotes, no more ganging up on Jason before exiting ;) The only problem I see there is that high speed counselors have a huuuge advantage.
  10. Good synergy: - Jenny and any repair character; she can protect them, but isn't fast enough to leave them in the dust - Two high stealth characters - one of whom at least can repair - for the boat escape (usually A.J. + Tiffany or Deborah + Tiffany) - Bugzy and Vanessa, also with Tiffany if she's wearing the sweater (though Tommy should arrive quickly) - Fox/Adam/Kenny/Shelly can basically work with anyone - Chad and Vanessa Bad synergy: A.J. and Vanessa, A.J. and Bugzy; to some extent Jenny and Chad because although they are similar in terms of fighting, Chad will leave her in the dust
  11. I agree that it is satisfying to kill Chad and Vanessa, but I voted for Deborah. Why? Because I like to chase her early in the match and decrease the counselors' chances of getting objectives fixed quickly. It is also satisfying to know that it will take more time for the others to repair things. Now the others (e.g. Chad, Vanessas) have actually do it themselves instead of running/dancing around like fools
  12. What about Adam and Fox? They are well rounded and imo better than Kenny.
  13. Which 2 above average stats would you like to see together on a counselor? I know most people would like a +stamina/repair character, any other ideas? +luck/repair or +luck/strength (though that might be unbalanced) sound interesting to me.
  14. @Rexfellis I agree with you. Also, if your team only consists of said trolls, one of whom helps Jason and/or tells him your position (which results in you being the first to die), I see no reason to help them afterwards.
  15. Well it doesn't even need to be 10 repair, 6 or 7 are just fine and still enough to repair in Jason's face. High composure+stamina would also be great for juking; almost never lose mini map + very quick stamina regen
  16. I've suggested in another thread how to buff Jason, some ideas are really simple. E.g.: let him block+hit simultaneously again, buff destruction on all Jasons, give him more throwing knives to start with, let Jason see the "cop arrive in" timer so he can plan better to ambush the counselors. These are just some possibilies, while his grab can stay as it is...but, since you've been speaking of abilities, maybe he should get shift earlier in the game, even before sense? Most repair characters are near the objectives anyway, and a good Jason doesn't bother about Vanessa early in the match. This would make objective-rushing somewhat riskier, and also counter his nerfed grab.
  17. The problem is that many Jasons tunnel Chad because they hate him and want to kill him, no matter what. You know, reminds them of that bully from school. Tunnel = max fear, screen black, no mini map. I think devs have reduced the amount of time it takes for high composure characters to reduce fear, so ~3 minutes shouldn't be true anymore. Also, most Jasons don't go after Jenny in the beginning because she isn't as "valuable" as the repair characters. A good Jason always chases the repair characters first, so she can use that to her advantage.
  18. Funnily enough, if you were to show what Jenny looks like now, you wouldn't have to change the female character at all she looks exactly like the standard protagonist/wife from fo4, with her hair, 50ies oriented shirt and high waist trousers.
  19. The irony is that A.J. seems to be more often the "final girl" than Jenny because of her "lone wolf" playstyle, whereas Jenny can be played both as a lone wolf AND team oriented. With A.J., I mostly run sense avoidance perks, but rarely with Jenny. When only A.J. and Jenny are left, Jason often seems to find Jenny first because he might pay more attention to noise pings. From my experience, I've survived more often with Jenny than with Chad because when I was Chad, Jason always seemed to find me in the beginning, before I could even grab a baseball bat
  20. Unpopular counselors

    Both Jenny and Tiffany are cute, no need for a feud . I'd suggest taking one point from Jenny's composure and/or luck and put it into her repair/speed. But currently, anyone can deal with Jason. Eric is still unpopular I guess and the main reason people play him is for roleplaying/trolling/as a meme.
  21. For me, it's outdoors because you have much more flexibility. Indoors, you have very little space and it's too predictable, too obvious for Jason, e.g. if a counselor is standing in front of a door that Jason is breaking. He can just use combat stance/block after breaking and grab you more easily when you're inside. Outside, I find it easer to bait Jason into a grab and strike back.
  22. If the girl activates her sweater and shoots Jason with a shotgun/flare gun, will he still fall to his knees? Has anyone tried this out? I'm assuming that it doesn't work because finding a weapon (just take Tommy's shotgun) would be too easy.
  23. I'm not quite sure in which subforum to write this because this isn't specifically about horror movies/games, nor is it about gameplay. I still hope this topic gains enough interest Unfortunately we barely have information about the counselors' personalities, backstories, relationships. Horror movies are already full of clichés, now imagine them being, say, in a high school movie, even more clichés! How can we define their personalities, who would hang out with whom (e.g. cliques), who has a crush on/is dating whom etc.? I am aware that this can often sound "cheesy" but hey, they are teenagers after all Here are some ideas that I've thought of, feel free to add yours and discuss! - The "cool/athletic kids" aka Chad, Bugzy, Vanessa, Tiffany - The "new girl" aka Jenny, befriends Kenny, the "nice guy", friendzones him, OR he acts as a gay best friend - Jenny falls in love with Chad, dates him, is possibly a virgin; Chad of course only wants to sleep with her so he can boast about it; she constantly refuses, which results in Chad cheating on her, similar to Trent in the remake - The "class clown" aka Shelley, might hang out with Jenny and Kenny - Tiffany who is SAID TO BE the flirty girl/slut, only because she likes to dress in revealing clothes. She is actually a caring person and wants a loving boyfriend. Might be best friends/"frenemies" with Vanessa, is always in Vanessa' shadow. Might develop a true friendship with Jenny later on - Deborah who spends time in the library, overachiever, coming from a very conservative family. She is struggling with her sexuality and has often admired Vanessa's body in physical education - Vanessa might have feelings for Deborah, too, but is scared because she isn't "cool enough" - LaChappa, who is shy and spends most of his free time sitting on trees and watching his female classmates - The mysterious/"rebel" guys aka A.J., Adam (who are actually kind people), possibly Fox. I can imagine Adam protecting nerds from being bullied...Fox might do this too, but in exchange for money. She often persuades A.J. and Adam into some shady businesses and might try to get between their relationships - Dunno about Bugzy...maybe he hates sports deep inside, but his parents force him, blah blah - I don't consider the "cool kids" to be active bullies, only more popular than others. While at first they seem superficial on the outside, everyone can change for the better...except for Chad, who will always be a dick Oh and I almost forgot Mitch, the stoned janitor who gives advice to the students Edit: You can write your own ideas or "continue" their stories, maybe imagine how they all ended up in camp together?
  24. Counselor backstories/shipping/fanfic

    @Rexfellis wow those sound great! And it also explains how everyone ended up at camp. Too bad that that topic was kind of left behind, I hope you will eventually have the time to continue those stories @Moe9999633 Many girls have probably a crush on Chad, I just don't think he treats girls well. I can also imagine Tiffany ending up with Bugzy
