    Jason is weak

    If anyone is interested in watching or having their Jason gameplay footage reviewed, analysed and critiqued by one of the top players on this game as Jason in particular, Check out these links: Just send him any of your Jason/counselor gameplay footage if you have any, if so. @mattshotcha Great community initiative? Seems a tight knit community in some parts.

    Jason is weak

    Haha, who are they and which game video are you referring to? Those players are probably just good in groups since that's what most public lobby kill squads are good at, staying together in groups. They probably are not high level kiters in the slightest or could survive the night solo versus a good client Jason as what I've experienced in public lobbies myself of these groups, i could even bet quite a bit they don't even dodge cancel which will further highlight to me they are not solo players. What's worse than having 1 solo great counselor? Is having 7 of them, all in a passive 'gang bang'. Running into 7 true great counselors in a public lobby is very very rare, you may get 3 or 4 at best on average. There is a difference between counselors who are really good and the ones who know how to kill, you can deal with the latter. The true art isnt killing a Jason but surviving the night on them and clocking down the timer, especially solo it's not really too taxing killing an off host Jason and then it's a squad? Even more of an ease! Could that same team you refer to kill a great host Jason? That would be the true challenge and test of the team. I doubt there is true hidden gems of kill squads in public lobbies, there's only so much you can develop before you hit a glass ceiling in quick play, it's just not the same, although I long to be wrong lol but i feel like I've seen it all with the tournaments and what not that are going around and feel like i have seen the best already in terms of both Jason and counselor and a certain few who have made me go "wow". I need to go easy on the links lol but last one, same team vs same counselors -Pinehurst, just the first game. Not your average day kill squads. Btw not a team per say but great counselors in the same lobby. Just for you, maybe can change your opinion, who knows 🤷‍♂️@Dragonfire82877

    Yeah, unfortunatly. Blame the old devs. Again, block off host being the problem.

    Jason is weak

    I have just said, you can come to that conclusion off host due to the non functioning block. He is somewhat weak against a team of knowlegable smart counselors. You should read the posts again. And also your just going to get some exceptional counselor players in this game who outmatch the Jason's skill, especially if they are a few of them working together as a team that's how games are I'm afraid.

    Wow, someone who agrees with me that the counselors are not up to scratch in this community. Thank you. You don't need to make a part 2, i don't disagree with you to be honest. Watch these two games: Or If Jason plays against these sorts of teams then he may infact should be called weak. Passive players, who like to kite, engage only for stamina, dodge cancel upon hit etc etc but this guru player is just very good so makes it look easy. The last link does highlight Jason's struggles vs passive smart players. The first video was 6 counselors and all of them chad, chad not having the greatest of stamina but 6 counselors with no Tommy and chads at that too rather than Vanessas or even Tiffanys playing smart ran a very good Jason around for almost 18 minutes. The goal was to survive the night, which made it much much easier for Jason, throw in higgins is not known to have many sprays and a lot of open space, didn't fair too bad. Now, if they go for the kill or push objectives too, this really could be tough for Jason as J cannot now just tunnel for stamina drain as his attention is needed on multiple objectives.

    Jason is weak

    Yeah they will agree with what i just said. Lol. Not a fully functioning block for client and also they probably won't mind a HP boost aswell most likely. Seems like they are having a blast playing J on host though. Maybe @DEVILS_REJECTS7 you should talk more about the block rather than Jason being weak and specifics.
  7. Are they ever going to compare how slow block is on Host as compared to off host (client)? That is one MAJOR complaint by the higher tier playbase, clearly it's not been heard as there maybe a lack of. Not many people block as Jason so doesn't suprise me. Take a look how fast block is on Host, go to the time stamps in the comments sections of the video on the first link: This was once achievable off host (client) too, not any longer as of the engine/grab update as client. It's too slow, and gets slower as ping rises. Combat stance entry is delayed as client. Back before that update it seemed ping didn't relate to block speed at all as it was same speed (quick) on all pings.

    Jason is weak

    Watching these two guys play, down below, doesn't suggest to me Jason is weak at all, mind you they are playing as host and it's a completely different ball game off host vs knowledgable counselors and teams But as you can see perfectly fine and competitive. Only issue is off host is where the problems arise. Delayed block, delayed knives etc etc i know all this comes down to having ping so can't really be fixed but the block can (off host that is), as it was once fine and perhaps a raise in HP too for Jason, double would be adequate. Should sift through their YouTubes, they make playing Jason look easy.

    Jason is weak

    Found an old clip of a good Jason getting pummeled and yes he eventually died, a well coordinated team of 6 counslors (in this clip) can topple a mighty fine Jason easily, which was the case in the clip. A great blocking Jason i feel somewhat balances the odds a little but even then still a long stretch vs a high skilled lobby. Doesnt help that block is so bad off host now, i just hope they fix this atleast, if they do anything that is. Off host block on low ping (80ms or below) is managable 1v1, certainly against non wielders of swift attacker but against a group its usually RIP especially if they are all carrying machetes, no way your blocking all the hits from all angles and directions not with this new block, expect a demask quick. With the old block most definitely evens things up a little.

    Yes, for counslors the biggest cue is if they dodge after hitting me generally speaking or jog while im chasing them and not full on sprint to the nearest cabin, usually close range kiting. It's usually the Chad players or Vanessas as these players have a pretty good understanding of the game, to pick these counslors.

    Jason is weak

    People are starting to play in point based tournaments, this is the greatest challenge of them all for a Jason. Not only do you have to contend with getting tommy box and not dying, objectives are being contested rapidly right off the bat. Most these players systematically loot and locate objective parts as fast as they can much quicker than the average QP counslor all the while planning for going for the kill in end game. It also doesn't help they are mostly experienced counslors so know the general vicinity of the parts to efficiently locate them. Traps are already being tanked and objectives worked on pre shift, the small maps are even more a nightmare, you can expect a car or a boat running pre shift if your an inexperienced, novice Jason or off your game in the slightest even for veteran Jason players fortunately though most the time there are 6 counslors as opposed to 7 due to usually there being a spectator in the lobby monitoring the game.

    Jason is weak

    It seems majority of these players play in quick play, which i don't blame them as that's the easiest mode of play to get into. Finding competitive lobbies or Jasons to play against is really hard unless you know people and by that i don't mean your sub standard "good" Jason who knows what he's doing in a pub lobby, i mean infact the really great Jason players. There are observable cues to tell how much the Jason knows i.e whether he speed shifts, window punishes, quick toss knives, blocks etc etc so I understand some players hit a glass ceiling and never break through it and when they do face a great Jason and die, it was probably just "unlucky" on their behalf or "wrong place and time" from their perspective or just a "bad game" so brush it aside rather than pursue to find Jasons like that individual. My way of assessing a Jason to some degree is i use speed shift as an indicator if this Jason knows what he's really doing or not, as a speed shifting Jason is so rare in quick play that its usually someone I've played with before considering how small the playerbase is and also a Jason who window punishes. Kind of a hidden trick, especially the speed shift, not readily known by the average Jason. Windows are incredibly bad against a great Jason player, infact Jasons who complain of "window hoppers" and you can only "run me by window hopping" straight away tells me that they must just be an average Jason at best in my honest opinion. "Window hoppers" open up endless opportunities to catch a counslor or deal damage gradually, like all the ways you just highlighted. My eyes light up when a counslor is constantly going through windows. I'm like this should be a an easy one. Haha.

    Blocking didn't seem like it was ping related at all from when i used to play on yellow bar, the ping came into factor when i would try to grab once i blocked a hit.
