  1. Well, if this is the final death nail, it's been a hell of a fun ride. I haven't played since May, but did plan to start working it back into the rotation eventually... Still one of my favorite games I've ever had the pleasure to play you deformed, broken, masterpiece just like the game's antagonist.
  2. Excited enough that this was only the second game I've ever bothered to pre-order. (Take a wild guess what the other game was) I usually like to wait and make sure I'm going to like a game first before I spend money on it. The game is technically an early birthday present from my wife, which quite conveniently, is being released on my actual birthday. God, I hope this game doesn't suck.
  3. So, you're saying that if you wrote the story/script that helped create the characters and much of the backstory to one of the most iconic an profitable horror franchises in history, you wouldn't want your fair share for what you helped create? I certainly would as would any creator. A screenplay is a much differen't beast than a magazine or newspaper article you'll forget about five minutes after you read it. Last time I checked, a newspaper article never spawned a billion dollar franchise. The courts siding with Miller is all the proof I need that the argument that Miller was merely Cunningham's employee doesn't hold much weight. Writers and creators have the right to profit and share in the success of the copyrighted material they helped to create. It's as simple as that.
  4. You misinterpreted. They shut down the Dedicated Servers, not the regular servers. Basically, the game reverted to the way things were when the game launched before dedicated servers were a thing on console. You can still play QP matches on console, but your gameplay experience will depend on how temperamental your host is and their internet connection.
  5. Depends on how you like to play obviously. Personally I either like to try and Kill Jason, and if that's off the table, I like to try and help as many other players escape as I can and don't mind it when I die trying. I just don't enjoying trying to run Jason around for twenty minutes anymore unless I'm playing with friends or otherwise fun lobby of other players, and nothing's more boring than escaping in the car in under five minutes... I either want to be the last person off the map for the last person dead depending on the flow of the match. Because of how I like to play, I value Stamina, Speed, and Luck... Mostly for Jason Hunting, but these stats translate well to how I like to play when that's not an option. Composure would be right up their too, but none of the high composure counselors really fit my playstyle so I have to deal without it. Similar issue with Strength which helps out Jason Hunting, but I don't like the trade offs I have to deal with by selecting a high strength counselor. I don't value repair very high since, just as long as the counselors repair is above 1, I can handle it just fine just as long as Jason isn't up my butt. As for stealth well... I'm usually not actively hiding from Jason, so I don't have much need for it. I agree on Speed. While I've learned to adjust and manage pretty much everyone's stamina, Speed will still sometimes get me. Especially with Fox and Adam who I sometimes forgot aren't as fast as I think they should be... Fox in particular feels like she's running in cement at times. Stamina has sadly become mainly a troll stat. Very useful though when used properly. I disagree somewhat with stealth, I feel it's probably the most overrated stat. It only really affects sound pings, and let's face it... The vast majority of Jason's hardly pay any attention to sound pings unless they're in a part of the map where they can't find anybody, or generally just don't use them properly if at all. Stealth is a stat that needs buffs from stealth perks or another stat like composure to be truly useful. It's pretty effective for Jenny or A.J. who can be pains in the ass to find... On the other hand, Tiffany has max stealth but a lot of good that does her when she still lights up like a Christmas tree halfway across the map when sense is turned on.
  6. I almost never waste a PK on a trap... Mostly because I find it kind of unnecessary the majority of the time, and partly because my play style is... What you might call risky, so PK's are a bit more valuable to me though by no means essential. I just as soon tank the trap and take my chances. Those rare instances I will spend my knife are usually when I'm playing within a coordinated group that has a particular objective in mind. I don't mind sacrificing the PK nearly as much when I trust the people I'm playing with know what they're doing.
  7. Oh, come on dude. Just because someone doesn't agree with your opinion or doesn't play the way you want them too, that means they're a troll white-knighting for trolling? No... Go back and read their posts without your Vanessa hate-boner on, this isn't what they're saying. Not exactly anyway... Surviving the night is a perfectly legitimate condition for winning. Hell, sometimes it becomes your only option depending on match flow... And yes, if you gave Jason a handicap and extended the match to thirty or forty minutes, I'm sure most decent Jason's can eventually catch the troll. 🤣 I'm not even sure how to unpack that. Twenty minutes is more than enough time for a Jason who knows what he's doing to dispatch a lobby, even with runners. On the rare occasion I run into a counselor who can outlast me for the full twenty, I tip my mask to them. I don't make excuses or call them trolls and pretend they somehow didn't beat me. That reminds me too much of guys who rage-quit the second they get grabbed and pretend they somehow won or one-uped Jason because of it. No... You still lost. I accept it, and tell myself I need to do better next time. I actually enjoy a good chase against a really skilled counselor. I do agree that the best way to deal with a troll is to more-or-less ignore them and shrug off their antics, and yes some of them do get themselves hard by doing their stupid tea-bagging and dancing on Jason's face, but for most Trolls, there's nothing more satisfying for them than to break Jason enough that he either rage-quits or just gives up. I'm sorry, but not engaging that player at all because you don't want to bother with them or know you aren't good enough to catch them is a form of giving up. There's no point in quitting especially once in rage... Everybody's tripped once or twice at the worst possible moment. Everybody's climbed through the wrong window, or ran through a door not realizing Jason was standing right there. Trolls can be taken advantage of if you know what your doing. I mentioned this earlier, but I fix the phone quite frequently with Vanessa. It's a bit more challenging, especially against an alert Jason but by no means impossible.
  8. There's two ways I like to play as a counselor when I'm going solo. I'm either trying to kill Jason, and if that's not feasible, I'm going to try and get the cops called and help get as many other counselors out as a I can. (Or the car as a last resort) That's not just for noobs either, that effort extends to anyone in the lobby whose still alive, and I don't give a crap if I die trying either. That's what's fun for me, as I've got nothing left in this game to achieve or prove to anyone. I do try to help new players wherever I can, to the extent their willing or capable of being helped. There's only so much you can do, especially when they don't communicate or once Jason's in rage mode. I have given up my seat in the car for newer players on occasion, but I usually provide the most help trying to help those last couple of newbies chug towards the police exit. I've been in a lot of matches where keeping the Noobs alive is more challenging than avoiding Jason.
  9. Weird. I fix stuff with Vanessa all the time, have very little interest in trolling, or running Jason around for twenty minutes unless the guy playing J is a total ass-hat that I just don't want to be killed by. I must be playing Vanessa wrong. All joking aside, I use Vanessa primarily for Jason Killing purposes. I like the tri options of trying to draw Tommy or getting the sweater if need be, or if the the kill is off the table, I'm good enough with her repair to sneak parts in as long as Jason isn't up my bumhole. Honestly I value her speed and decent luck, which somewhat helps balance out her low repair and strength. The high stamina is more of a bonus, for me anyway.
  10. Best of luck to ya! I definitely support anything or anyone trying to keep this game alive. I could certainly use something else to listen too to help keep me awake when I'm at work.
  11. Rage-quitting is always the worse look. There's nothing more sad than somebody who thinks they've somehow won by thinking they're denying another player something by quitting like a little bitch. Hiding in the water for the remainder of the match is pretty much a version of rage-quitting. Your essentially taking yourself out of the game, so it's no differen't. Now, if Jason is playing hide-and-seek that's a differen't story, and actually isn't a bad strategy. I've said this many times before, but Jason is not obligated to let the counselors kill him. Make the counselors work for it, as a lot can happen in that timeframe. Counselors can get impatient and sloppy, especially if they're inexperienced, aren't used to working together, or aren't communicating on any level. You can run counselors out of stamina, or force sweater girl or Tommy to inadvertently isolate themselves making them vulnerable, especially if Jason's confident he's neutralized the PK situation. Really Good Jason's don't even need a lot of separation, just enough to get the drop on the target and get a quick kill off before the others can rally around them. There's also a chance you can get sweater girl to use the sweater at an inopportune time when Tommy or other squad members aren't in position. That audio glitch where you don't always hear the voice lines when the sweater gets used is still very much a thing. The rare times I do mess up a kill when I'm Tommy, it's usually from realizing too late that the sweater has been used due to a combo of the muted voice lines and sweater girl not ensuring I was in proper position before she hit Y. I can only stay up your ass for so long, especially if you're running around doing your own thing. Ironically, I can only recall one match with a runaway Jason where he made it the entire twenty minutes without eventually running him down. I've seen several other matches though where Jason survived because he got Tommy or Sweater Girl to mess up in one of the manners I've mentioned above. Hard to argue against a strategy that occasional works. We need to get over this mentality that just because I accomplished A, B, and C, I'm entitled to X, Y, and Z.
  12. Yup. If anyone prefers to watch these films on network T.V. rather than streaming, a lot of these movies will be on Syfy, which is owned by NBC. They're having a Friday the 13th marathon on Oct 13th, with the expectations of 3 & 4 which Paramount currently has the rights too, and a Nightmare on Elm street marathon I believe the next day. If you're looking for Evil Dead, It, or the Conjuring movies, they're all on HBO Max.
  13. Let's hope Miller is more interested in making money than acting like the greedy vindictive prick Cunningham has come across as lately. I already wasn't a big fan of the man since Horror Inc. acquired the rights, and I lost most of the respect I had left for him when I found out he filed a separate lawsuit against Paramount and WB over the remake. Doesn't want to pay the guy who helped start the franchise, but damn sure wants to make sure he gets every penny he feels he's owed. Maybe he wouldn't need that money so bad if he wasn't wasting so much money on lawyers and leaving millions on the table by leaving this franchise dormant just to participate in this one-sided dick measuring contest over a franchise I'm becoming convinced he doesn't really care much about.... Except, arguably, for the film he directed which it looks like he no longer has the rights too.
  14. I have Hulu TV which doesn't carry AMC, so I'm completely out in the cold this Fear Fest anyway. I'm pretty sure it's a rights issue and AMC just couldn't obtain them this year, though weirdly enough I saw they are showing the remake a couple of times but that appears to be it. The entire Friday series is ironically chopped up all over the differen't streaming services... Paramount+ has 3 & 4, the rest of the original eight are all on Pluto TV and HBO Max has the New Line films. We all own copies of these movies, so I know the appeal was to actually get to watch the films on broadcast television like the good old days... If you happen to have the Paramount network or maybe even Syfy... I think they have the rights to the New Line movies... At the very least Jason X was all over their 31 days of Halloween block last year.
  15. I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but I have had a couple of matches in recent months were I became completely interaction locked. I could move around fine, but I couldn't pick up items, couldn't open doors, couldn't open or go through windows... Basically I couldn't perform any action that required me to hit A on my Xbox controller as the lock appeared specific to that button. The other occasion I couldn't do anything at all. I don't know what causes it to happen but the interaction lock will occur. The only way I've found to fix it is to either let Jason grab you or slash you with his weapon... Not great options I know, but they worked and fixed the problem for me. I don't know what to say about the PK unless it happened during the timeframe you were interaction locked. (If that was even the case) I have had this happen to me as Jason too where I either couldn't grab, swing my weapon, of even use my abilities until a counselor was kind enough to come up and give me a whack which usually fixes the problem. Taking a dip in the water seems to work too, but I haven't tried that with a counselor yet.
