  1. The upcoming update will contain VC 2.0 and maybe offline bots. That's it for now. The snowflake doesn't represent the first day of winter or Christmas. It represents winter as a whole. Which basically gives them a March deadline for what the roadmap is showing pre-snowflake, and everything is still subject to change, as it says at the bottom.
  2. I'm sure there were instances where the combination of Jason's already long range combined with ping issues led to moments where it appeared that way. I'm just saying we had never seen any clips of it quite that bad. There's an analysis video or two out there showing his range, and it did definitely have a bit of a pull. But I don't think it was anything people made it out to be. If you don't have the items to escape, you're dead either way in my opinion. Doesn't matter if it's 4 feet or 10 feet. I think the length of a rug is reasonable, as the clips showed.
  3. Ok...don't think we've ever seen it that bad, and there's been plenty of videos linked here. But if you say so.
  4. Best insults

    Arguing on youtube...you've already lost.
  5. You're exaggerating. It was never that bad. And exploit? It was just "how it was". There was no exploit about it. You couldn't cause it to happen and take advantage of it. The grab range was what it was to compensate for latency. Now they just tuned it and said "Fuck latency. It doesn't matter". Which is why now Jason can't grab counselors that are humping his leg.
  6. The Implementation of the ‘Repair Part Icons’

    lol...ok? "Hey guys...the new patch is coming out soon. So let's clarify changes made in the last patch. We'll answer the questions about the current patch when we release the next one." Dafuq is going on in that office?
  7. Anyone who complained about that was an idiot to begin with. Jason is a KILLER. If you get within 10 feet of him without a weapon, fire crackers, pocket knife, or another counselor to knock you free - you're dead. Period. And that's exactly how it should be. I could think of a couple of times where I was like "wow...that was bullshit" when I got grabbed before. But it's better than where we're at now. It was never bad enough to warrant a change.
  8. Patch Notes 12.12.2017

    Ok...Someone help me out here. Weren't the Jarvis House issues of boat + 2-seater and fuse box always spawning at the bottom of the map resolved in an earlier patch? Because I played a few matches on Jarvis House last night (PC) and boat + 2-seater kept happening. Come to think of it...I don't think I've EVER seen Jarvis House spawn a 2-seater and a 4-seater. There's always a boat. I thought this was fixed? Was it not? If not...why is there STILL no fix in this patch? "Oversight" ??? @ShiftySamurai - I know this was before your time...But can you find clarification? If it wasn't fixed already, why not in this upcoming patch? It's gotten to the point that I just quit if it's Jarvis House. I don't play shitty broken maps, especially with the do-nothings that play Quickmatch.
  9. I'm not even gonna trap the battery/gas anymore. 9/10 people fuck up the skill check, so I'll know they're there with or without the trap. I'll just trap the door now. That's the only time I'll need to be alerted. If they bypass it, you hear the car start... As it is now, counselors have to be careful when a trap is placed at the door. You still have to avoid accidentally stepping in it while you wait for the door prompt to show. Jason usually has an eye on the car by the time he traps a door too. It's usually just extra security to avoid someone quickly getting in and taking off. And as far as "realism" is concerned - a person could easily bypass a bear trap and get in their car if one was placed by the door...Reach over the bitch, open the door, and climb in. At least with the battery/gas it stands to reason the person would have to get that close in order to repair the thing, kinda. This patch is full of unneeded changes while Jason's grab and hit detection will remain in the crapper, and counselors will remain invincible while climbing through windows...Priorities, mirite?
  10. Whoops.

  11. PARANOIA

    Ah, you're right. I see it there after "New Mode"...Been a while since I've looked at the map since none of that is of any interest to me. I want THIS game to work. The one we have now. I don't care about anything new until the current game has everything in working order. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way (and who's been playing since launch). I'm happy with the current amount of replay value, as long as it's not the buggy mess it is now. New maps and Jasons will add to that. New counselors...meh. They've basically established to 3 "types" of counselors already (Finders, Fixers, and Fighters). Any new counselor is essentially a re-skin with slight stat changes. A new Hero like Tommy would be interesting. New Jasons will add a little variety. But I've already moved on from J4, personally. Paranoia is intriguing. But unfortunately we still don't know enough about it. Will it be a viable game mode for long term play (like the current MP) or will it be something people play for a week and then forget about it? But yeah...if they fix the game and get things into a healthy state, I'll be happy to see the new stuff. But if they don't, it's all basically pointless. Fox and Mitch added absolutely nothing to the game for me. At least J4 brought 6 new kills with him.
  12. Patch Notes 12.12.2017

    Probably haven't played against some really good Jasons then. In our Xbox club that we established here, we have some ruthless Jason players. Getting anything done, be it fixing a car, the fuse box, boat...takes WORK. If we don't manage to find everything needed and coordinate setting off traps to divide Jason's attention between 2 different objectives, we're not getting anything done. It's too easy for Jason to patrol one objective at a time. The only way you're getting anything done against a good Jason is if you manage to split him between 2 objectives, causing him to make a choice of which one to defend and which to allow completion of. For example, if I'm fighting a bunch of counselors at the car because they're about to start it and I hear the "beep beep" from the fuse box skill check, I ignore it. It's more important to stop the car from getting started. Even if they call the cops, I have the countdown on my side, and they also have to reach the cops before I intercept them. Whereas if you drop your guard on one of the cars, it's gone. Anywhere from 1-4 people are escaping. My point is, if you had to do ALL that work for a short window of escape, it wouldn't feel balanced. Don't get me wrong, in your average Quickmatch round, I agree. I can spend 5 minutes at the police escape dancing and Jason doesn't even show up. So a small window of escape opportunity would definitely increase the urgency. But like I said before - if they make Jason a real threat again, people won't screw around and they'll get the hell outta there. They dance and troll now because they can.

    Makes you wonder where the full version of "SP Challenges" is on the roadmap then...
  14. It's pretty bad when people think offline bots are gonna be the savior that helps them forget about the state of multiplayer... I've seen zero evidence that these guys can program half decent AI bots. The best approach would be to find a way to "ghost" real players, like a racing game can do. The "ghosts" are basically recordings of people like us playing as counselors, and you as Jason have to "cut off" said recording before they find items, fix, and escape. The difficult part is how these counselors will fight us, as Jason. Something tells me it's gonna be even buggier than MP is...Either they won't be able to stun you at all, or they'll stun you too easily. I'm curious to see how it all pans out. But if you think there's a lot of bitching now...wait until people are dissatisfied with offline bots. Shit's gonna hit the fan more than it ever has.
  15. It's been on page 1 of the forum literally all day. Search! Jesus christ...
