    Not me tonight, unfortunately. I thought about bringing my Xbox with me on the plane but didn't want to have to explain it to the customs agents...
  2. I agree that trying to come to conclusions based on the anecdotal evidence of the vocal minority is pointless. There are no known facts and no ways to verify anyone's claims. All I personally know for sure is that I haven't found any tapes since the super XP weekend. I hadn't thought much of it until I read this thread. There are people on here that I trust who are claiming similar issues. Is everyone on here a liar? Who knows. Is the tape drop rate now zero? No way for us to tell for sure. Let the devs figure it out. Let the internet speculate and argue.
  3. That's not quite how I've experienced it. From the counselor side just last week, I was no where near tapping out, yet when Jason threw me through a window, the window broke but I remained in his grab. Then I broke free, yet was listed as dead on the status screen. From the Jason side, I'll get the prompts to execute a kill, be it an environment or a grab kill, but nothing happens when I press the button. Seconds later, they'll break free, yet show up as dead on the status screen. I'll pay more attention to it, but I'd be surprised if the kill execution lined up with the exact time of a tap out as often as I've seen this glitch happen.

    This is what I'm going to think of now whenever Tommy says "C'mon, you pussy!"
  6. I've lived the Double-Kill glitch pretty regularly. It's not so bad if you sweep the lobby anyways, but I "killed" a Vanessa once who then proceeded to get the sweater and almost kill me. Not to mention the cases where "dead" counselors escape and the lobby has to wait until the 20min timer runs out because the game has confused itself. If the glitch happens to a Jason who should've killed me, I've started to do the honorable thing and let him get the second kill immediately. Hoping for good karma. I really just hope they've fixed this one in the new update.
  7. AJ about 80% of the time for me these days.

    As the person who was mercilessly shotgunned down, for the second consecutive match, I'm happy to have found a way to contribute to the group effort.

    You realize this means you can't call yourself a 'garbage Jason' ever again, right?

    There's something about Adam?

    To be honest, I didn't know there was a stigma around being killed as Jason until I started reading these forums. A newbie probably wouldn't get that upset... ...however, the trash talking that happens while killing Jason is by far more damaging. The problem is that it's relatively easy to kill Jason if the group decides they want to do it, especially against a new player who doesn't know what they should be defending against. The pricks that then turn around and berate you as a shitty Jason often cross the good sportsmanship line (to put it mildly). I wouldn't mind being killed by a good group nearly as much as I would by a mean-spirited one.

    I can be on as early as 8EST tonight. I'm all for maximizing the time to play with good people.

    Yep, that's it. Just be careful about old hard drives as they may not be USB 3.0. The Xbox will recognize USB 2.0, but when you try to set it as a default capture location, it'll complain that it's too slow. And too dusty. Oh, and a new feature that I've discovered (and verified a couple of times): If you let the capture go for the full hour, the game will dashboard you at the 60min mark. Doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen. I try to record match by match so that this isn't an issue, but sometimes I forget. Like the time I was hosting a couple of weeks ago...

    It'll be more of a blooper reel, actually.

    Yep, the Xbox will recognize it as the default capture location, and the capture commands will reflect the larger size. You may have to set it as the default capture location, actually, through the settings menu.

    If you plug in an external usb hard drive, you get the option to record up to one hour. It has to be USB 3.0 I think. I use a Western Digital Passport portable 2TB.

    Thanks for the feedback! You're right, I was being reactive the entire match. I was lacking a sense of urgency at the beginning, jogging between the phone house and the Tommy house, then taking the time to knock down the phone house door. I think I've learned from that for sure. I hadn't noticed that I switched from chasing Mitch to chasing Vanessa. Good catch! Morphing into the stream 3 times was pretty frustrating. Has anyone ever mapped out the morph points on each map? I know that would take forever, but someone must have done it... I haven't played J2 since this match. I'll be set to have a go with him again soon, I think. Thanks for watching and commenting!

    @Thatguyinktown Alright, here it is! (I managed to upload this before catching a plane last night. Sorry to miss the Thursday night session!) Feel free to watch with or without my following commentary: 1:05 - the phone house and the Tommy house spawn right beside each other, with a counselor in each. I try to go after the electrical box first, but it’s as far away as possible, so I waste a lot of time running to it. 2:12 - I finally trap the phone, getting ready to check the car. Wait! The trap at the Tommy house is tripped! And the battery repair has started! 3:10 - Breaking the phone house door. It was important to me, not sure why. 3:24 - First visit to the car. 4:15 - Bad knife throw. 4:57 - Should have morphed instead of shifted. 5:09 - Another bad knife throw. 5:22 - Still not morphing. 5:55 - Shift grab. Really should have had this kill. 🤨 6:35 - Cops called. 7:47 - White fence morph, followed by shifting without sense. 9:03 - First realization that J2 can’t swim too good.😖 9:45 - Car starts 9:56 - Frustration hack, followed by 3min car chase.😠 12:14 - Morphing into the river. Jason doesn’t have rage yet, but I do!😡 12:58 - WTF? In the river again.😤 13:32 - Everyone’s escaped except demonwolf. I’m ready for this match to end. 13:56 - Landed 4 good slashes. Should’ve had him. 14:08 - Oh good, here’s Tommy!😡😡 15:02 - Oh, c’mon.😡😡😡 15:52 - Really?😡😡😡😡 16:25 - Should have stalk-shifted in. 16:43 - Good block, couldn’t exit CS fast enough. 17:21 - In the fucking river again. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 18:03 - And stay out!

    Thanks, @Thatguyinktown! I've never seen anyone blatantly ignore objectives like that, using the one +trap Jason yet only setting one trap all match. Yet even with that, and all the other points you pointed out, he still managed 6/8, which I'm sure is a reflection on the co-operation of the lobby. I'd like to post the match that started this discussion - my 0/8 against you guys. You've given me tons of tips already, but it'd be cool to hear your critique after seeing it the way I saw it. I'll try to do that soon.

    Thanks, man! Yes, nervous is one way to describe how I feel when I'm grabbing those first two knives. But I felt much more comfortable last night than last Thursday, so things are progressing in the right direction! And 'yes' to the group name. This I've tried to keep in mind. But I always think that while patrolling objectives, it's not enough to just scare counselors away with each morph - you still need to capitalize on opportunities to remove a chess piece from the board. So keeping the chases short but ultimately winning a few of them is what I think I need to work on. Yeah, there's nothing quite as stressful as hearing several traps tripped at once! Being able to reliably stop the car would be a big improvement for me. I'm still finding that I have to orient myself after a morph, so morph-shifting will take some practice. I think I know the answer to this question, but do you have to press a button to stop the car when shifting, or is it enough to make contact? Actually, sometimes I do go lie in wait for the caller to reach the phone. It's produced a few good reactions! But having a plan doesn't always translate to actions when in the heat of the moment, so I'll often find myself going after the group around the fuse box. Your ongoing willingness to share your expertise is very much appreciated! Yes, I have to do this more often. Maybe the egg timer Guy was talking about can be useful here... This is all excellent advice, and very motivating. Thanks! I'm going to see the new Avengers movie tonight, but I may well try to join for a few matches later on if you guys have an empty slot.

    Thank you @Thatguyinktown, @TheHansonGoons, @BrokenFattHardy, @Zaneygrrl, @TiffanyxAJ, @Risinggrave, @Alkavian, @Super Ty I feel like a rookie being called up to the big leagues when I play with this group, and it's been an awesome good time playing with people who respect the game and each other. Case in point, when I discovered a new interaction lock as Tommy and couldn't do anything to save Hanson - all while forgetting to un-mute my mic - he didn't swear at me (outwardly) once!

    I'm in. Or down. Or game. Whatever the cool kids say these days.
  24. That would certainly make for a disappointing announcement on May 10th, then. 😁
