  1. If it is the one that has already been posted on here; the one with Patreon - I wouldn't hold your breath as it screams scam all over it (like the supposed SCREAM game).
  2. May 24, 2018 to August 9, 2018 is not 4 months. I'm not saying your issue is not real, but stating that it hasn't worked for 4 months and then saying since the update (May 2018)... 2.5 months would be more realistic and less hyperbolic. Again... the issue is real - no need to inflate the severity/duration of the issue.
  3. I don't know the exact date, but one of the bug fixes made it so that if you have multiple people in a party and you join a server...it would disband the party and kick some of the people from the server. So then the only workaround is for people to play in private matches. Well the group that I played with we were from all over the world; UK, AU, US, etc... trying to do private has made everyone's pings go to crap and caused a lot of disconnection issues. So while the May update wasn't good, and the new content wasn't good... this bug is the straw that broke the camel's back. Slowly an active group has becomes a shell of its former self. Now when you log on to Steam you still see the members, but they are spread out across various games. I played this game because I had met some great people who I had an amazing time playing with. It wasn't one or two people who left, but more like 30-40 from the group. My experiences in QP are what made me originally quit playing the game; the racism, homophobia, sexism, and just disgusting behavior by the QP community. Since QP has never been fun and since that is basically my only choice... I decided it was time to quit and uninstall. I did have a great 6 months playing the game though.
  4. The group of 50+ people that I played with consistently has disappeared for the most part. The May update didn't slow us down... Heck even the "no new content" didn't affect us that much. The kicker was the loss of the party system on PC. Without having the ability to create a party and join a server we slowly dwindled down. Used to be on weekends we would run 2 lobbies because we had plenty of people online at same time. Last week we didn't even have enough to fill one lobby.... Most of the players have moved on to dbd or other games. I am not a fan of dbd so I am basically no longer a part of any group. Since I loathe QP... I uninstalled the game. If the QP community wasn't so toxic I would have continued to play, but if I want to hear juvenile swearing and insults I can get that at work from the inmates. So I guess now all that is left for me to do is lurk in the forums. Who knows... maybe they will fix the party system... if not - I had a good run and got a lot of enjoyment out of the game. (I used to play with a YouTuber as well - he would stream F13 2-3 times a month. His last stream was on July 13th and lasted less than 2 hours; instead of the normal 4-5, because of the party system. He has given up playing F13 as well.... sigh)

    Why is Miller the good one again?

    Just a thought: Miller is owed money.. and here is why. Although he had nothing to do with the sequels - the character he created (Jason Voorhess) did. Yes he created Jason as a child who died/drowned, but that child is the grown up version we see in the sequels. He also created Pamela Voorhees who did appear in part two of the film; they even used some footage from the first movie when it comes to Pamela Voorhees. So while he did not create adult Jason - he did create the actual character and lore surrounding that character. In numerous F13 movies Jason is referenced as the one who drowned as a child etc etc... which was Miller's concept/story. Here's why I think he is owed money. Let's do an example of another movie: Beetlejuice. If you agree with Cunningham you are saying that there could be a Beetlejuice 2 without giving credit to the original creator of Beetlejuce. Even if your movie doesn't actually have Beetlejuice in it, but talks about Beetlejuice throughout the movie... you are using the character and lore of that character so why wouldn't you pay the original writer/creator? IP consists of a lot of thought and ideas... Miller is the one who set up the entire idea of Friday the 13th... Cunningham expanded on that idea, but still included the original lore/characters that Miller created. Edited: Just finished watching part 3... Pamela Voorhees (Miller's character that he created) is in the beginning and end of film. The credits...give credit to Victor Miller.. "Based upon characters created by...."
  6. Not being snarky, but why would they tell us anything if nothing has changed from "working on bugs/dedicated servers." Do you simply want them to repeat that? They won't give a deadline for completion since there are too many factors involved to give too much of an advanced notice. "Working on" means they are working on it - I assume that once it (dedicated servers) are close to done we will know. As far as bugs go...I mean it's kinda the same deal; unless you want them to say something like: Currently working on glitches a, b, c, and d?? I just fail to see what "update" they can give aside from "Yep we are still working on what we told you were last time...." If they said "We fixed x, y, and z... and still working on a, b, and c" all that people would then do is demand a date of when the already finished fixes would be uploaded etc. Then if they said "We will release the fixes once we fix a, b, and c... " Guess what people reply with: When when when when? So what exactly do you want them to say? They already said what they are doing.
  7. Part of the problem with the PC population right now is the borked up party system that does not allow a group of say 5-8 friends to create a party and join/create a lobby without people being kicked etc. So now my group of friends we just run our own private matches and do not even mess with the dedicated servers. before if there were just 5-6 of us we would just join a dedicated server/qp lobby, but we can't do that now. Frankly I don't like to play with 5-7 strangers because I find most of them to be horrible players who have no idea how to play the character they choose. As for the randomly assigned counselor bug - I haven't had that issue or seen it since the patch at the beginning of July.
  8. As I stated in my post - I am not a lawyer, but I do have an education/degree in law. There is pure (simple) speculation, speculation, and informed speculation - my speculation is informed as I do have a background in law. When it comes to contract law (which is a major part of this lawsuit) as is business law; it has been noted that Gun cannot RELEASE any new content. What I was pointing out under the law is that while Grendel and Uber are "technically" in the game - those features were never RELEASED and because of this they are affected by the inability of Gun to RELEASE them now. The word release means "to make available for use" which Gun did not do with these two features. Those people who have hacked the files to gain access to them does not count as a release; especially since access to them is a direct violation of Guns EULA when it comes to... wait for it... released content. And yet here we are - several weeks after the announcement with people trying (unsuccessfully) to argue that Gun should/could release them etc since they are "already in the game" which is untrue. These two items are not a part of the released game... see there is that word again... released... to make available for use.... THAT word alone is what stops Gun from being able to put Grendel map and Uber Jason in the game. This isn't some brain teaser or hard concept - it is a simple matter of law. This is a logical assumption based on the available information on the case as well as Gun's own statement which stated they would not be releasing (dang there is that word again) any new content. If you look at the issue from a logical and legal stand point it truly is not difficult to understand. Does all of this suck? Absolutely!!! Do I wish they could release the content; yeah I would love to play an indoor map (I don't play Jason so Uber has no appeal to me). With all that said... I recognize the legal restrictions and understand why we can't have those two things; or anything else like the pajama pack. It just gets so frustrating to see people saying "Legally Gun can...but they just don't want to..." etc etc because that makes absolutely no sense from a legal or business aspect and is just adding to the vitriol and misinformation out there.
  9. I am not a lawyer, but I do have a Master's in Legal Studies and a PsyD in Psychology. I work in the legal system for the Bureau of Prisons and while my legal Studies were focused on Criminal Law I do have extensive course work and knowledge in Tort, Business, and Contract Law. So yes I think my opinion is supported by not only my education, but also experience within the legal field. Thanks.
  10. Gotta love internet lawyers who claim to know 1. Every aspect of the lawsuit and 2. What is and is not "legal" in regards to the lawsuit and spreading misinformation on those issues. I hate to break it to you, but Uber/Grendel were not "released" and thus are prohibited by the terms of the lawsuit from being released. Yes folks it comes down to one word... released. Maybe instead of trying to be an internet lawyer - you accept the fact that Gun has lawyers who have already advised them on the issues. It amazes me how much this topic is brought up over and over again due to one Jason and one map. None of the internet lawyering or complaining will change the status of these two items.
  11. Yes because releasing a newly repackaged "ultimate" edition is the exact way to do that. 🙄
  12. You don't actually OWN anything. Under the terms of use and End User License Agreement - Your "use" of Uber jason is in direct violation of the EULA. Since you had to "hack" the game to gain access to Uber Jason as it is unreleased - you are in direct violation of the EULA. While the EULA does grant you permission to stream/record and post videos of the game (so long as not for commercial use) - that right is limited and revokable by Gun Media. So... yes they can have the video taken down and yes...they can ban your account for violations of the EULA. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you may not: (i) remove any proprietary notices from any copy of the Software; (ii) cause, permit or authorize the modification, creation of derivative works, translation, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembling or hacking of the Software
  13. Hmmm I had this happen to me in January so always assumed it was part of the game. I think 2 minutes is a fair amount of time. If ya move it to 5 minutes people will still complain. People always find something to complain about. Not sure why people think they should get credit for being idle 25% of the game.... Anyways it was this way back in January on PC...Not sure if they took it away and then reinstated last patch? I learned my lesson first time it happened.
  14. Nope not me. My Steam name is Disco Stick I'm traveling for work and won't be on until Friday night.
  15. I have had repeated issues due to my internet and yet never been placed in the salt mines... just saying. As for Savini... get over it. You are not owed anything; especially an exclusive item that is for backers only.
