  1. This may have been mentioned somewhere: Stalk now cancels itself when you enter combat stance. I always use combat stance to break down doors, often while in stalk (even if no counselor is around and I’m making my job easier for later) and I’m 99.9999% sure this never used to happen? Surely it’s an unintended thing, it’s really really shit either way.
  2. Of the options in the poll, glitchers annoy me the most. I see it as a statement of their poor character as people, not just players in the game, and unless they're children I generally think of them as lowlife trash (and I'm not generally the type to look down on other people in that way). Sometimes there'll be someone who's just doing it for a laugh and leaves the spot, but those who routinely glitch and will do it till the time runs out and waste everyone else's time are up there (or more accurately, down there) with the lowest of the low as far as the player base of this game goes. Another thing that irks me which I occasionally see, counselors playing selfishly - even if I'm Jason it bothers me, because I'm someone who finds it rewarding to help out even complete strangers who might not always "deserve" it, because it feels good to be good to others. A few days ago I was Jason and some moron came back as Tommy. Some kid playing as AJ tanked the door trap at the car and couldn't heal themselves, I morphed to them and they were politely asking Tommy if he had a spray and he ignored them. I threw knives at him till he was crippled and unsurprisingly he used his med spray, then I tunneled him till he was dead and let the kid and the other counselor who was still alive escape, shifting around in circles and not bothering to stop the car. Back to the main topic though - cancerous cheating scum. I've had some great moments messing with glitchers lately - a while ago this moron who used to play under a different name but got a bad rep for being a complete piece of shit was trying to do the Packanack roof glitch. I ran into the trap he'd just set and immediately healed myself, then drew Jason (not a friend of mine, some low level noob Jason) to us, ultimately the cretin ragequit while Jason was giving him that savage one handed choke, effectively ending his peckerwood dreams of rooftop chicanery once and for all. Here's the video of what I described in the above paragraph - I always save stuff like this. 😂😂😂
  3. I had some little fuckwit do this earlier today. He must have had 3 health sprays, thick skin and medic, but I got him in the end after everyone else was dead. Only hit him once with combat stance, due to the position he was standing in causing me to lock on from the wrong angle. I had 7 throwing knives when I first noticed him glitching, needless to say it was pretty fucking annoying using them all only for him to repeatedly heal, then needing to collect more in between killing the other counselors (while making sure not to use any precious knives on them...) and preventing them from repairing the phone. Next round, I got the Chadmobile ready with one objective in mind. Took forever to find the gas, finally did so just as the cops were arriving. Drove to the police exit, conveniently turned him into roadkill then immediately escaped. He didn't say too much after that round surprisingly enough, then next game I was Jason, interrupted his attempt to climb through window with a knife then grabbed him and killed him (before anyone else - one handed choke needless to say) as he exploded in a barrage of super mature and enlightened insults about how I am "JUST GHEY!" 😂 Eventually he came back as Tommy and started accusing me of being a cheater (ironic given that he, not I, was glitching two rounds earlier), claiming I was teaming even though I wasn't friends with anyone in the lobby, then got super emotional and started to call me a "sore loser", which was a strange thing to call me considering I've never "lost" to him in any way. Projection 101, like it normally is when some dumbass insults you. Fascinating how they tend to gravitate towards terms that are infinitely more applicable to themselves.
  4. Yeah, usually when the lobby is full of mediocre fuckwit counselors who think they're super elite because they can beat on some hapless motherfucker who just got the game at the police exit till time - something they clearly have in abundance - runs out. Harder to do now I guess. Once this girl let her mum (presumably a middle aged woman in her 50s or 60s with zero clue how video games work) play a round and I let her kill me cause the rest of the lobby were a party of dumb bogans (Australian equivalent of redneck basically) saying weird vaguely sexual shit. I just stood there (as Tommy with all the stuff I spawned with) and let her slash me to death rather than be implicitly on the same side as such fundamentally shitty human beings.
  5. Yes, weapons with high stun chance are likely to work. If the person hitting him after the sweater is used has a good sucker punch perk, it's more likely to work. In the days when the sweater girl could also hit Jason right after using the sweater, I kneeled him with a wrench quite a few times, as wrenches stun him about 90% of the time with a 25% sucker punch perk equipped. Axe almost always works when I'm Tommy cause I use sucker punch on every counselor, but I've seen it fail quite a few times when others do it.
  6. Few things irritate me more in this game than when the level 11 PS+ player tries to give me driving instructions (anyone who plays with me knows I'm good at driving and even most high level Jasons are almost completely incapable of stopping me in the car), then they get all pissy when I completely ignore their simplistic directions which basically amount to "Drive on the road, see that part of the map that's a road? Drive on it". . . Oh thanks bro but I think I know the layout of packanack small by now, having played about 15000 matches on it. They actually proclaim me a terrible driver because I'm doing all this crazy unpredictable shit, yet they don't seem to notice that Jason is completely incapable of stopping the car and we end up escaping unscathed after I've kept him busy for several minutes to better aid those not in the car. Healing new players (who have mics) or repeatedly saving them when they get grabbed and them not acknowledging it 9 times out of 10 is starting to shit me as well, the second my weapon breaks and I need to go find another they end up dead. I'm glad the player base is more active currently but getting a bit sick of some of these frankly useless cunts at the same time. I really do try and help the new players and it's always nice when you see some that have a decent attitude or at least attempt to play the game properly, I go out of my way to help anyone in the game in general, but goddammit there are too many painfully unfunny adolescents (and younger even) who never stfu playing this game right now.
  7. A trend I’ve noticed: Heal one of these clueless noobs when you see an injured Shelly approaching in the distance and take pity on him, then wait for him to... um, try and attack me two minutes later? Or give the noob Chad a pocket knife because you found one at a campsite late game and already had one, he’ll appreciate that surely - oh wait, why tf is he trying to hit me now? ???
  8. Same here, it sucks. I feel so lost as to who the cool people and the fuckwits are as I only started playing regularly on X1 in last month or so (been playing since day 1 on PS4). I connected a headset even though I don’t normally use mic - still couldn’t hear anyone. Every time I’m Jason and someone is talking as I’m killing them, in my head they’re the saltiest motherfucker on earth and they despise every facet of my being. And whenever a Jason is tunneling me and can’t kill me, I feel like they’re saying all sorts of horrible things ? lol. Also, the glitch after shooting flare gun/shotgun where you don’t drop it after shooting and then you can’t do anything but emote, flashlight, cycle through inventory (and use items) and run. Can’t open windows, doors, can’t pick up items, enter vehicles etc. I think the glitch may occur for more than one reason but the most recent time it happened and COMPLETELY fucked me over for the ~15th time in the last 2-3 weeks, it appeared to happen because my character stumbled in the middle of the horrible forced “drop flare gun” animation. The flare gun is such a joke at this point it may as well be renamed the Flair Gun and shoot out floating speech bubbles that say “Wooooo!”, with accompanying sound effect. Oh wait, that would be new content, never mind ? It sucks when the salty asshole Jason player who would virtually never be able to get me (or at least not without a long struggle) under normal circumstances gets to kill me because the game fucked me over even worse than the car rubber banding bullshit that was left in for six months. I love having dedicated servers on console finally and have been enjoying the game as much as ever lately, just wish the above issues would be fixed along with the horrible interaction lock that happens mostly to people who use combat stance frequently. There are matches on Xbox where I get interaction locked almost every single time I come out of combat stance, I have developed a habit of spamming RT as I’m getting near a window or door with Jason on my tail since it’s very likely I’m glitched after the simple act of entering combat stance and hitting him. I know it’s not necessary to use combat stance, but hit detection is pretty iffy without it (especially if you’re saving someone else who got grabbed like the human pocket knife you are ?) and at this point it’s too ingrained in me to not use it.
  9. What’s the status with the servers now? I set my Xbox up two nights ago after the PS4 issues started, I have a relative staying till this weekend and they’re in the room my Pro is set up in. I had my original PS4 connected through my PC monitor, but when the server issues started I connected my X1 instead. I’m guessing it’s mostly back to normal now? I don’t wanna miss out on all the fun with all the new players etc so will probably get my PS4 hooked up again soon unless there are still issues with finding a match, can’t connect both consoles at once in this room though so only wanna switch back to PS4 if it’s worth it. If need be I can wait till the weekend when I can have both consoles hooked up to my tv again.
  10. I was in a party with friends earlier trying to get into a lobby - it would search for much longer than usual then put us in lobbies on overseas servers (we're in Australia). It put us in US lobbies a few times, then it even put us on the EU server... Sucks cause it was pretty reliable at putting me on either the AU or AP server (where I get roughly the same ping of around 100ms) until today. We eventually gave up 30+ minutes and numerous failed attempts later. Did private matches for a bit until it dwindled down to just four of us, then we all said fuck it and stopped playing for the night.
  11. I don't really wanna post a separate thread about this, but... Why can't I hear anyone's mic on Xbox? It's been this way since I started playing on X1 again a couple of weeks ago (mostly play on PS4, and sometimes on PC). Been playing on that platform more than others lately with the increased XP and it's been a lot of fun, but I've never been able to hear anyone's mic a single time. Anyone I've talked to via the Xbox messaging app has the same issue. 3-4 people I've asked confirm the same thing. Sometimes when I'm in a lobby where 80% of the players are using mics, it's a bit frustrating that I have no idea what they're saying. Especially when I'm Jason and I don't know if they're like "OMFG YOU'RE LITERALLY THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME" or "DIE DIE DIE BURN BURN BURN SHUT UP & FUCK OFF & DIE", or somewhere in between the two. I keep encountering the same people every day that I play on X1, and feel a bit lost as to whether they're chill/decent people or salty little bitches, but I guess when a good chunk of them are ragequitting the second I'm even in their vicinity (often with zero interest in killing them at that precise moment...), I can take that as a hint towards the latter. The only headset I have is one that isn't Xbox compatible, and being someone who's discerning about the kind of energy I let around me and who doesn't like to engage with random & often horrible, toxic people via online games, I don't normally use a mic. A friend said that he could hear other people when he'd connect a headset himself - is that what's required to be able to hear other players now? Like I said, still having a lot of fun playing on X1 regardless but it's a significant issue that I hope will be rectified at some point in the not too distant future. I'm still a bit confused about if this is happening to everyone on Xbox or not because if it was, I feel like I would have heard more about this issue. Then again, the few people I've asked about it have all confirmed that they're experiencing the same thing. Also, the interaction lock is the new car rubberbanding - it's definitely happening more frequently after the update, usually after being in combat stance as counselor. Probably affects me more than the kind of counselor who's all about staying out of Jason's way and escaping at the soonest opportunity like the shook little bitches they are =P Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy that dedicated servers are finally out and work very well for the most part, and the game in general is waaaay less buggy than it's been in at least 3 and a half months... There are actually very few issues I have with the game right now in terms of bugs, but the interaction lock thing has well and truly outstayed its welcome - hope they figure out how to properly fix it (without breaking anything else ideally, since the game in general is quite playable right now...) and don't let it drag on like the car rubberbanding thing that was in the game for like 6 months? .. Another minor thing on Xbox that doesn't happen to me on PS4 - sometimes doors fail to barricade when you've held A for the necessary amount of time. Sucks when you're almost out of stamina and a Jason with destruction/weapon damage etc. shifts to the door that you're trying to barricade and slashes you/begins to break it down because it failed to properly barricade on the first attempt. And when someone joins on the "Waiting for players" screen on Xbox, as of the most recent update, it often causes other players character selections to randomise and they load in as a different counselor (or Jason) than their chosen one. This has actually been unexpectedly fun for me (loading into a match on Pinehurst as Lachappa instead of Vanessa then proceeding to destroy Jason nonstop until he finally kills you VIA DESPERATE SLASHING with about 3 minutes left in the round is quite exhilarating...) but still obviously something that needs to be remedied. Seems like virtually the whole lobby (other than the person who joined at the last second) has their characters changed when this happens. This may sound negative but really these are the only issues that come to mind right now, which is a vast improvement over the disappointing state the game was in a few updates ago.
  12. Stoked that dedicated servers are now on Xbox. They’ve already made the overall game way better on PS4, and I’d been having a lot of fun with it on Xbox in the last couple of weeks. On the negative side: still having the issue I was having as of the last update, where I can’t hear anyone’s mic ever. Anyone on my friends list I’ve asked has the same issue - one of them said he can hear people, but only when he is using mic himself. Hopefully this will be fixed at some point as it’s quite a significant issue. That the interaction lock bug would have to be among the top priority issues on Xbox at this point. The bug happens more frequently to me on both PS4 and Xbox after this recent update, and sometimes it completely fucks you over and some Part 3 noob Jason slashes you to death before you can spam R2 enough to unglitch it. Edit: also earlier today playing on Xbox, meant to be Vanessa - loaded into match as Kenny, and the Jason player was P5 when they were meant to be P7
  13. My post is basically a combination of fun/fuckaround antics I've come up with, as well as some potentially useful tips for playing seriously that can also be hilarious when pulled off successfully. As counselor: Grab a bear trap or two and place them in areas such as the graveyard on Higgins, in dark spots where Jason is unlikely to see them and more importantly, where one of your counselor compadres is extremely unlikely to step in them. Think about the likelihood of it being in a counselor's natural "path" and if it is... don't set it there. I sometimes do this early in the match if I spawn at the cabins nearest to the graveyard which each contain one bear trap. Even better if his shack is nearby, and you can run in and out (without prematurely grabbing the sweater), have him morph to you then bait him to the graveyard. Combat stance + block is great at baiting Jason into traps in general whether they be placed in traditional spots or not. The female "Go away" emote is also great for baiting Jason players that aren't very good into traps. Traps do a good bit of damage for demasking Jason (not sure exactly how much?) so if you can lure him into two unexpected traps, it definitely helps with that too. If I have more than one med spray, I'll leave it within a few feet of the traps just in case some especially stupid person happens to somehow walk into one. Other fun places to put them are at the edge of the pier on Crystal Lake... but leaving enough space that you can run around them and not step into them yourself. A few days ago I did this and ended up being the last counselor alive against a pretty good Jason, I ran to the end of the pier and almost baited him into the trap about 6 times... it would definitely be easier to pull off with a bad Jason. He killed me when there was less than two minutes left, but even though it didn't actually trap him that time, it was pretty fucking hilarious, repeatedly falling in the water and swimming back to shore (Vanessa vs Part 2 Jason...) before he could drown me, then running back to the trap, dancing and baiting him within millimetres of it. Edge of the map where the trees and bushes are at the repair shop on Crystal Lake small is another fun place to put a trap for Jason as no counselor is gonna be walking around that exact spot, unless they've underwent a recent lobotomy. Helpful to bait him into the trap while trying to get the car repaired or started (or tank the trap at the door while he's trapped). --- Some little bitch ragequits mid-kill and robs poor unfairly maligned Jason of the complete kill that he earned? If I'm in their vicinity I'll sprint over while Jason is still in the kill animation and viciously teabag that weak-hearted motherfucker (the counselor who left) on some coldblooded savageness. Sure, they won't be witness to it, seeing as they left because vidya gamez r super srs and losing = an ever-so-painful wound to their fragile egos, but it's still nice to mock them for my own amusement. Plus it's a nice little non-verbal acknowledgment to the Jason player that I'm on his side when it comes to the absurdly petty & mean-spirited, humourless fuckheads that continue to plague this game and have been a cancerous scourge on it for the decent players ever since it launched. It also sends a message to other potential ragequitter counselors (and playing on PC and Xbox as I have been lately, that's often more than 50% of the lobby by the end of the round...) that they're a laughingstock to any person whose emotional intelligence is beyond that of a prepubescent child, and it's beyond pathetic how they respond to a meaningless "loss" in a video game, time and time again. --- This is something that has happened by accident a couple of times and never been done intentionally, but goddamn it was sweet. I like to maneouvre the car around the boatshed, beach front etc. on Crystal Lake small, most Jason players don't expect it and it fucks up their shift/morph and unless they're really good, it makes it really easy to get the car back onto the main road after they've wasted their abilities and must wait for them to come back. Occasionally I'll fuck up and ever so slightly reverse into the water - usually only happens if the Jason is unexpectedly good. Generally the car going in the water = destroyed and cannot be salvaged, but it'll say on the objective screen if that's the case. On at least two occasions when this has happened, I've left the car thinking it was a lost cause only to return 5-10 minutes later when Jason has forgotten about it and is 100% sure there's no way it's still going to be able to be driven. You can swim around near the driver door and get back in the car in the short space of time (sometimes a few milliseconds) that the prompt will appear to do so. Then you can start it up as normal, and drive that bitch out the water and get it back on the road, good as new! It's extra hilarious to me when this has happened, knowing that the Jason player has to be thinking "how the fuck he doodat?". I might actually start doing it intentionally in matches where noone is taking it seriously as it's probably not that hard to "slightly" get the car in the water but not to the point that it's destroyed. It'd be a pretty awesome and endlessly amusing thing to be able to do at will. --- Jason is a huge asshole whether on mic or gameplay-wise? E.g. slashing everyone, even defenseless players who have no back up, in an incredibly monotonous and desperate manner. If Tommy's been called, someone's been killed and ragequit or otherwise left/lagged out, and Jason is tunneling me relentlessly for god knows what reason... I'll fuck him up for say 5 minutes and often demask in the process (especially funny when you're playing as Chad with his 1/10 strength), then if I have anything in my inventory I'll just drop it (health spray near car/phone etc and even pocket knives for sweater bish if I have any) and stand there emoting as he slashes me to death. Then, usually less than 30 seconds later... there'll be a much needed influx of a very underrated fabric indeed. You guessed it, DENIM DEMIGOD up in this bitch bwoyyyy. Usually the Jason player just says fuck it and leaves when they look at the scoreboard and realise their worst nightmare is unfolding before their very eyes... I find it funny that it doesn't occur to them that "Oh, someone already left... if Tommy's been called, which he almost certainly has if the whole lobby isn't straight trash, the next person I kill with definitely come back almost immediately as one Sir Thomas Jarvy, unless I kill more than one in a very short space of time. Which is unlikely, cause I suck..." ?) As Jason: This only really works against combat oriented counselors who tend to be overconfident when it comes to fighting Jason, but lack the skill to do so effectively against a Jason who isn't shit. The kind who run at you from ten feet away and then immediately ragequit when you intercept their incredibly predictable swings and promptly punch their heads off ? Aim a throwing knife at them and don't throw it... I know that if I'm a counselor and Jason is standing there aiming a throwing knife for 10 seconds, I'll run up and stun him. But when I'm Jason, I'll sometimes aim them and intentionally not throw them, wait for the counselor to get close... and just before they swing, cancel the knife throw and grab them. Immensely satisfying when pulled off, but can be difficult at times - especially if they have a good swift attacker. It can be good for dealing with actual good players as well as the kind mentioned earlier, as occasionally a good player will get overconfident and too used to stunning you, and few if any people ever see this coming. Never seen it done by any other Jason either, not that I'm bragging or anything ? --- Against counselors who like to stun me every time I'm locked into an animation like grabbing a knife, breaking a generator etc... If I have traps to spare and am generally fucking around in the match and trying to have fun, I'll occasionally place a trap near the spot where the throwing knife is, when the counselor isn't there to see me do so. It only works if it's relatively dark and even then it's far from guaranteed to work... but holy shit does it feel good when you go to grab a knife and Chad comes along with his 700% stun chance increase sucker punch... only to run right into your trap and be promptly decimated (or at least lose his pocket knife and half of his HP). --- When a counselor is nearby, stalk shift into the back of one of those small cabins with the partition where there's usually a closet and a couple of drawers in the back area. Being Part 8/4 and breaking as many doors down as possible while waiting for shift/morph to return helps with things like this. Similarly, if counselors are grouped up around the repaired phone (with firecrackers, shotguns, bats etc...) and you morph there and the door is knocked down and you know where the phone is... Shift straight into the cabin and grab the person on the phone, who is usually the only person inside. Even better if you have stalk on before you morph and no one tips them off. Works best on Higgins haven small, when the phone is basically in the middle area of the map, across from Blair's cove and somewhat near the barn. Shift inside, grab and promptly ventilate that hoe ass trick (the "Ventilated" context kill happens to be like a foot away from the phone - win!). Another time when two of my friends were playing Deborah and the phone was in the same location, they sneakily repaired it right under my nose and I didn't know until I heard one of them making the call. Grabbed Debbie #1 just outside the front door, head punch of course. There were about 2-3 words left in the call that Debbie #2 was making. KNIFE IN THE BACK BITCH! Then I stabbed her heaps of times in the tittayz because Jason fucking despises little goody two shoes bitches like Deborah Kim and has no outlet for his animosity other than to take it all out on her frankly underwhelming breasticles. --- To deal with teamers: One person is Jason and the other is their fuckwit friend, typically Kenny, Chad, Buggzy etc... They're running around trying to hit you even though it does no damage, and they're trying to nudge you into Jason, body block etc. It can be tricky to do but you can get the dumbass Jason to slash his friend to death if he's attempting to slash you. I've done it on at least two occasions, one of which the teamer Chad was the only kill that Jason got in the whole match. You have to be good at avoiding Jasons swings and having some med spray is crucial (I like to climb through a single broken window, that being the only damage I've taken... then promptly heal myself in front of the teamer counselor who has about 10 HP left at that point ?) Or if I'm Jason and there's teamers or people being assholes in general, I'll just kill them first and then intentionally fuck around grabbing people and letting them break free over and over until they ragequit - if they didn't immediately do so upon dying, which they do 90% of the time. Wow, I didn't expect that to be so long. (now I know how Michael Scott felt in that episode of The Office where he was trying really hard not to say it, but I feel like it's too obvious so I won't... i literally can't not say it. twss) This post is absurdly longwinded and I don't expect it'll be read in its entirety by anyone, but whatever - I had fun writing about my favourite game that I still love in spite of the fucking plethora of minor and not so minor issues that are yet to be resolved. tl;dr: I'm fucking rad.
