Love the game. Definitely appreciate all the hard work continuously going into the game. Have a couple ideas (which may or may not have been considered/suggested).
1) Tommy Jarvis. Best character in game (minus jason). Spawning as Jarvis seems to favor the 1st person killed after Jarvis has been called (not so random). Be nice for this to become more random (perhaps he spawns no earlier than 8 min into the match, or when 3 counselors remain). Gotta keep the Noobs joining, but a level 5 Jarvis? Why not make a level 20 min to spawn as Jarvis? Also, how about a quick mini game to be played by potential jarvis' (if nothing more than to make sure that player is actually paying attention and playing).
2) private chat/helping Jason.
I have no answers for this. I love the salt mines idea and hope that weeds some of this out. Perhaps nothing can be done about private chat (which tends to be buddies helping eachother), but what about some reporting or flagging system for blatant cheats? Counselors obviously helping jason (we know who they are) should be sent to the salt mines as well. Perhaps assign each player a limited amount of flags to tag cheats. When a player accumulates so many, bam, salt mines. Just some thoughts. Thanks
