Hey there I just want to say I had a lot of fun playing the game up until the patch. Like many people I too think that making Jason invincible when he is in rage is unnecessary. Whacking Jason on the head was essential to staying alive especially if you are the last survivor and you can't do that anymore making weapons useless in the later half of the game. I don't think this is the intent of the original game because the weapons were all graded with durability, stun chance, and weapon damage so you technically rendered them useless now. As to the Jason pinata it was fun, we had a lot of laughs, we danced in the night (some of us barely having any clothes), and we had a blast. I have to say it was one of the most fun to be had with this game as people cranked up their music and we partied like it was 1989. Having said that those matches were few are far in between only occurring in one out of every ten matches, even less at times. It was one of those tropes that happens in video games that somehow made it even more popular with people as they upload YouTube videos and just generally have a good time.
I feel that because of the new patch the score should be lowered for this game because it no longer supports counselors as a playable option especially in the later half of the game. I would search drawers and cabinets for med sprays and pocket knives but they always turn up empty so playing as a counselor feels incomplete and lack luster at times. It was always fun trying to repair the car or boat and getting away from Jason with the many stats available to players but I feel that there should be something more than just searching empty drawers. As to people saying counselors are going toe to toe with Jason, Jason has an infinite health pool, four abilities plus rage, and a grab ability while counselors only have an attack button. Needless to say that they were probably trolled and are in rage mode on the forums (and since you can't stun them anymore they are going all out).
Again thanks for making a truly great game though I won't be playing it with this current patch, the game is literally broken right now. In terms of video game movies everything about it feels really good except for the constant searching of empty drawers. It would have been a 6.9/10 (because counselors don't find anything when searching cabinets) but with this new patch I'd say it is a 6/10 because counselors are no longer playable in the later half of the game with instant grabs/kills when trying to free teammates during rage, weapons rendered useless during rage, and a major bug that doesn't allow you to kill Jason. I mean the dude has only died so so many times in the movies and it was near the end of it so how do you explain that?
Again I had a blast playing this game up until patch whether it was protecting my teammates (with weapons) as they try to escape or repair, to surviving as the last girl as you hope to see the light of day, to the once in a while party bash (that might get out of hand as people die), to finally playing as Jason the mass murderer in Friday the 13th. It was all good fun until the patch and it is my hopes that they will get the silly no stun rage mode out of the game soon and hopefully implement something more than the empty drawers as well as make counselors more viable as a player option.
