  1. Firecrackers have helped me defend the phonebox more than any other tool. I realize post rage they are not useful, but before that they are beasty in the right hand.
  2. You should have noted the context that it was a lvl 150 Jason teamer whose buddy stole the prop, drove the car out alone with Jason opting to ignore them as they drove right by, and likely used party chat to assist and he still couldn't get past your Scooby Doo routine.
  3. If the player is good with shift, that Jason is a beast.
  4. I'm not gonna jump down your throat over it, and I get not liking to deal with squeakers, music players or most others foolishness. But being 2-3 deep in private chats is a big advantage. Coordination from the get go without Jason being able to hear you? It's definitely putting the game on easy mode. I'm not saying that Jason was right to cheat, but complaining about him being underhanded when you're pulling shenanigans is bull. Good job on your kill, but next time just mute the fools who don't add to the game, even if that is the whole lobby, or at least don't inform us you're playing in party chat.
  5. Hanging out in party chat, and you have the nerve to complain about the other guy cheating? Trollish and hypocritical.
  6. When CLC didn't respond, and with our Thur group downsizing, I dropped it. However, if there is enough interest to get the numbers we'd need for a team, I'm in*. *Having been a switch hitter for @Zaneygrrl's group, the big question I'd have is how we'd work out who is Jason. I'm thinking personally, we take the interested parties and rotate. It might lose us the gold, but I'm personally ok with that. I'm not as interested in never having the option to play as Jason.
  7. I think I screwed up my wording. I had pulled an all nighter. I think it's weak to just go into the water or morph to a far corner of the map. It's not running and hiding to play defensively was what I hope people got out of the above statement. Yeah, I think many expect Jason to roll over at that point. I had a really fun game on Pinehurst with a group who barricaded themselves in the lone cabin North of the main lodge. I grabbed knives as I waited on cooldowns, would morph away Stalk/Shift by a window and chuck some at sweater girl. Broke all the doors and window and took my time. I'd come in and shift out before morphing to safety as needed. Then I'd walk back for another go. They never did run too far outside to engage me, but a timeout at that point would be on them. It's not like I wasn't in play. I managed to shift away from the killing blow and with it being Pinehurst and no objectives done, it was just a matter of mopping up after.
  8. That's not true if by "run and hide" you mean in the deep water or something. If you expect that Jason should just blindly blunder into his death, that's a flaw in your thinking. In my case, in private matches people generally get objectives done and get out. In public, well, they just haven't been able to pull it off. I'm the sort who pulls back when in danger. I will let powers charge up before engaging and go for an attrition approach. Thrown knives, a few slashes and shift out. Playing defensively at that point makes the team fight my fight. Even then, I came close a time or two to dying. I know going up against the right group will eventually see me killed, but that simply hasn't happened yet.
  9. That's pretty cool, actually. Also fuckin' Chad. Glad to see him get his.
  10. We generally get together between 7 pm and 9 Central. Most often, Hanson, Guy and I will be on early, with any stragglers coming in later. We run shop to between midnight and two AM on average, Though @TheHansonGoons is a pumpkin and leaves earlier than anybody. He's a wiener like that. Give me your gamertag and I'll toss you a friend notification. I'm "Rising Bean" on the Box if you'd prefer to send me one.
  11. Same feeling. For as shit as the movie is, JGTH has a great look. New Blood just has so much potential. I really think I may get the accessory pack Neca put out and have him wearing a chain necklace on my shelf. While I'm a bit less excited for Manhattan, he does hold a special place in my heart.
  12. I have 3-4, and my gf got me the reboot, but that's still on preorder. I agree that Neca does great work. As far as what they'll do with part 7? I'm salivating just imagining it.
  13. I hate this design, but I'll be damned if Neca didn't do good work. I'm waiting on 7-9 myself.
  14. I think pulping him with a shotgun is the best bet. Though give me a hundred meters, flat land and a zeroed rifle and I may take that as a close second.
  15. Shotgun would be a better bet, particularly with revenant Jason. But yeah, shotgun. Unless it was a blindside kill and I had no chance, I'd hope to shoot him.
  16. Hahah, so Jason conjured up a tornado to get that first car flipped. That was such a terrible round as far as glitches go.
  17. It's fine as is. This is one of those times where I agree that Jason needs to be played with some skill.
  18. I know that Gun can't force people to not use party chat as the consoles won't allow for it. What I do wonder is that if Gun can have a setup that means if you are not in their game chat that changes certain things. examples would be that as Jason you can't kill anybody (because slash and grab wouldnt' register.) That as a counselor you cannot hide, open drawers, pick up weapons or items, open, close doors and windows etc. I don't know how hard it would be to implement (or even if it's possible), and I know there are some means to counter it, but that doesn't mean an effort like that wouldn't fix a good percentage of people not playing as intended.
  19. Not according to Gun's commentary before the release. Because while the intent was that it would be difficult, the idea that you could kill Jason was intended. Ok... Who said anything about changing it? Though if Jason getting damage immunity while stunned or more HP is your reason to whine, that's on you. Jason shouldn't be taking damage during stuns. Meh. Not if a group of coordinated people know what they are doing and the Jason isn't top tier. Knock the mask off, have sweater girl stun, have TJ knock Jason down from behind and tap A. Not too much to do there. Correct.
  20. After the police are called, hiding is tactical. Jason is on a short timer then. I often hide at that point too. With that we're pretty much on the same page.
  21. Cosigning, @Ahab Hiding is meant to be done in small amounts. When the police are called and you're waiting or if Jason chases somebody near your area. As it is, if Jason runs by you're probably not instantly shouting in fear. And since long term hiding fucks over the rest of the counselors, I don't see the point in making it a more powerful option.
  22. Honestly, traps are his only real negative for me. I feel that once shift comes online it's all downhill if the counselors haven't gotten a move on. Slash and Cast called it right. J9 is a sleeper powerhouse.
  23. I didn't much agree with their take. My take low to high. Final Chapter. Bad shift and negative traps? Against a lobby pushing objectives hard, he doesn't work. Lives. Bad Morph gets punished too hard when dealing with multiple objectives. Baghead. Bad shift hurts. Traps and running have him a bit better than the above. Being able to police objectives is good provided cars don't get started. New Blood. Revised shift and being able to slash has him just above Baghead in my book. Roy. Feels very middle of the road for me. Manhattan/3-D I feel I do better with 3, but damn, if J8 isn't a beast. Jason goes to Hell. Shift that just won't end, decent stalk. I clean house with him even with 3 traps, more often than not. I'd also put Savini here. He has 9's shift, destruction and feels a lot like 3 otherwise.
