  1. Yeah, Xbox. Frame rates post dedicated servers are ass, this is true.
  2. Well at this point, I can’t even play properly with the P2P servers. Even as host my game is still laggy as hell and my internet is actually very good. I don’t really ever see ping rates below 100 anymore (mine was a consistent 60-70ms before all this). Now no matter the host I’m consistently 150-250 or more. As host, others seem to have 150 or less but my game is so unplayable that my ping (which I can’t see as host) has to be 350-500 at least. The frame rate is like 2fps 😂 Playing as Jason is also very difficult in my experience now. Grabs are even worse than before and forget throwing knives. By the time the game registers to throw the knife, the counselor is long gone. 🙄
  3. I've had this happen a handful of times. It's very irritating because once your counselor escapes to the cops, you have zero control over them. Unfortunately, from what I've been informed, it has to do with the latency between connections of the Jason player and counselor. It may registered on your side you escaped but not on Jason's end. Makes no sense to me, but that's the explanation I was given when I filed a bug report.
  4. I was able to play quite a few rounds last night into this morning. Once in a while it glitched out but the playable sessions were equal or greater to the glitched ones. Maybe the hackers are letting up? Anyone experiencing more success with matches?
  5. It’s a glorious glitch, and the one time that I’m actually happy a patch didn’t fix what it was intended to. The mashed up Jasons can be really awesome looking.
  6. Another odd observation - whenever I get the random counselor glitch the match plays just fine. It’s almost like whatever “resets” everyone in the loading screen resets the servers or something.
  7. Servers are hacked again. It's affecting all platforms.
  8. It’s weird but this evening I can get every so many sessions to work to play out a full match (maybe every 8-10 matches). Didn’t experience this last time the servers were hacked. Anyone else running into this? This is just me joining random QP lobbies.
  9. Same here on Xbox unfortunately. This sucks.
  10. I’ve killed Jason a handful of times since the patch and he’s dropped almost every single time. I don’t have sucker punch equipped either. Sounds like you’re just having a string of bad luck. I’ve had that before where I’ve failed to drop him several times in a row. It happens.
  11. I prefer part 6 with the machete, though I also enjoy playing part 5 with the battle axe.
  12. Technically it's fair game, but I find it incredibly boring and lacking in any talent/skill when that's all they do. Just my opinion.
  13. Did more pocket knives get added to each map with this update? My friend just had a round where they got stabbed with 4 knives and Tommy wasn't called/in the game. I had thought previously there were only 3 knives, then 4 with Tommy's. Anyone else experience this?
  14. Thanks for your quick response @mattshotcha! So going back and reading some of the other posts, my understanding is that once the damage threshold is reached for the mask to come off, then it's basically a roll of the dice whether the mask comes off with each subsequent hit. Is that correct?
  15. A curious finding upon some testing with my friend in a private session. Here's the setup - we wanted to test a -HP Jason and a regular HP Jason with Buggzy using a machete in both combat stance and regular stance (no perks equipped to increase damage dealt out). Our Jasons were part 4 and part 6. Hits to remove the mask on part 4: - Combat stance: 4 - Regular stance: 5 (stunned once) Hits to remove the mask on part 6: - Combat stance: 4 (both with stuns and without stuns) - Regular stance: 6 (stunned twice) // 4 (no stuns) My question is this - are we sure that a stunning hit consistently does the same amount of damage as a non stunning hit? Or perhaps these rules/changes don't carry over into private matches?
  16. Can confirm the random counselor glitch is still a problem post-update.
  17. Whether they award extra XP/CP, it wouldn't make much of a difference to those who have gotten to lvl 150. The XP is meaningless after that and the CP just keeps accruing because there's nothing to spend it on once you get the perks you want. If there was something else to actually spend the CP on, I'd be all for awarding extra points.
  18. They’re both distraction characters. As the above poster said - hit and run. They get plenty of hits with their weapons.
  19. I know the game is way past any major changes/updates/etc. at this point, but I've always felt that it would have been a nice feature to have a separate button for healing yourself versus healing another counselor. I can't count how many times I've wanted to heal an injured counselor and instead healed myself because I'd gone through a broken window earlier. I feel like this should have been a feature implemented early on. Would it be out of the question to alter the controls at this point? It wouldn't really be adding a new feature but rather tweaking an existing one (healing other players).
  20. The first one (epic) sounds better since it has no drawbacks and you have the same % increase in damage with both. I don't think you're gonna notice a 3% change in stumbling with counselors.
  21. I thought they had addressed some of the bot issues (i.e. staying in a hiding the spot the whole match)? I have personally noticed them doing that less often since the last update. I used to have 2-3 of the bots stay in a spot all match, now I don't run into that as often.
  22. I thrive on the mean or harassing messages. I find them hilarious. 😆 The fact that someone would care enough to send out insults means that you got to them.
  23. I think it depends on your preferred method of "winning" the game. Do you want to escape and fly under the radar? Play someone like Deborah or AJ. Do you want to tango with Jason and run him around the map? Play someone like Vanessa or Tiffany. If you want to have an open play style and have the option of doing a little of both, pick a middle-ground character like Fox, Adam, or Kenny. I don't know that there's one "best" counselor. Just my opinion at least.
  24. It's definitely a mixture of both luck and skill, though I favor mostly skill and a little luck as my answer. Luck because your initial spawn location (especially on small maps) may or may not yield you items that are useful for surviving/escaping before everything else gets searched by other counselors. However, you definitely need skill to accomplish your goal (whether it be escaping or surviving) if you're going to have a Jason who is keeping an eye on objectives and/or chasing you. You can have all the items in the world, but if you don't know how to play it smart, you'll die quickly.
