    I'm out.

    Well, it has been less than fun to say the least, but I've tried to hang in there. Well, not anymore. Can't say a damn thing on here without getting a warning. So, I'm out. I've met a lot a cool people, but this mod team is a joke. So, last post. I'd give out some shout outs, but I don't really care anymore. I have had it with the bs that goes on here.
  2. Here is the thing... First, we appreciate you stopping by to clear the air. That's more than the devs have done. When they do pop in they give us a three sentence statement then bounce. We learn about things from other sites like bloody disgusting or Reddit or discord, etc. That's one of the things that piss us off. The "official" forum is the last place they post things. Secondly, the reason many of us are anti Gun/ILL isn't because of no more content. It's not. Sure, no new content sucks. What is the source of the issue is how badly mishandled this whole venture has been from launch. Everything they have done has been handled poorly. From the first email with our codes for the game all the way til now. Communication has sucked from day one. Then we get to the game.....boy oh boy...the game. What a bug and glitch filled mess. It's been over a year now and it just keeps getting worse. Every patch breaks something. Sometimes it is something small, sometimes it is something major. You'd think they'd have the code figured out after a year. But, nope... Still fumbling around with it like trying to get dressed in the dark. You'd think Gun would be all over ILL's asses to fix it. Maybe they are, but how would we know? They barely ever pop in here. When they do, it is to issue bans and lock or delete threads. I've said this from day one. It would have gone a long way if they would have just popped in weekly to shoot the shit. It doesn't even have to be about f13. Could have been about anything. I see Randy playing kingdom hearts quite a bit here lately. Maybe he could have popped in to say "what's up, fuckers? I'm playing this game today, what are you all playing?". Something along those lines. But, we went from a team that was very active pre beta launch to non existent post launch. Then we get to Jason. So many issues. They stated they wanted this to be the definitive f13 experience. Well, it's not. Sure, it is fun...when it works. They took one of the greatest horror icons and turned him into the biggest damn punching bag out there. I could go into specifics about it, but it has all been said 10000000 times. Then comes the emotes. Did we really need thirty dancing emotes? Anyways, this is going on too long. But, I will finish with this. You call us toxic and ungrateful. That may be what you see and that is fine. That's your perception. But, what I see is a bunch of fans who are very passionate about f13 and who wanted to help this game be the best it could be. Our suggestions and feedback fell on deaf ears. Our patience dwindled in the face of incompetence. We became fed up with a shoddy product. It isn't about not having new content for many of us. It is about not having a solid product to play and relax. It is about two teams that seemed to run and hide when faced with critism. It is about making a great franchise a laughing stock. Again, I appreciate the fact you stopped in, but you will not win over anyone by degrading a community. Best of luck to you.
  3. I have noticed the interaction lock is becoming very frequent now. Hit Jason....locked. Take a swing....locked. Open a window...locked. Set a trap....locked. Barricade a door...locked. Get in a car.....your body is blocking your view. Exit the car....locked. It's getting really bad. Sometimes you don't have time to crouch and swing to get out of it which just sucks. I watched a player fire his shotgun last night, but the gun stayed strapped to his back and he couldn't do a damn thing but run. The crouch/swing didn't work. Couldn't pick up a new weapon, couldn't use doors or windows. Jason eventually caught him.
  4. Well, once again they had opened their mouths and stated that dedicated servers would be included on all platforms. At this point, it is just a creditbility issue now. If they don't do them, they will fall even deeper into the "broken promise" canyon. I've never been a big fan of the "promise" wording. To me it has always been a "plan", but others don't view it that way. I wish they'd just hold off on the dedicated servers as well and focus on keeping the game "functional" (that's a very broad term when it comes to these two teams). Dedicated servers really do not matter at this point.

    AFK kick

    I agree. I just had 3 teamers and then a lobby where the host quit. It's annoying.
  6. Why all of a sudden (as in today and last night) is every match ending with the connection timed out message after the match completes, but before returning to the lobby? Or shortly after returning to the lobby?
  7. What happened? Lack of commitment. Poor planning and execution. How many times did any of the Gun or ILL team actually stream their own game? Not much.

    AFK kick

    Yeah, I mean if the host gets kicked on console it would end the match for everyone since the host is the source of the connection. I played several rounds yesterday with an afk host. The person made us wait the full lobby countdown several times and never moved an inch in match.

    AFK kick

    Unless you are on PC, you shouldn't get kicked if you are the host. You won't on console or it would end the match for everyone. As far as salt goes, you probably would get it, but it should take a few matches of doing it to be put in the low priority que. Once again, if on PC, it shouldn't matter much since the player base is low. Hell, I've been running into the same players on PS4 as of recent. Seems like it is showing signs of slowing down as well.
  10. He made a lot of good points for sure. He has been made out to be this game's biggest villain. Sure, he did some questionable things, but he did try to give all the info he had to Gun. They refused it, so he went public with it. If it weren't for him putting it out there, some of the stuff would never have been fixed. A lot of people hate him, but the guy is smart as hell and knows his stuff. He can straight up play the game legit when he chooses to. And let's face it, the guy was entertaining as hell. He has something a lot of streamers don't have: charisma. He was funny to listen to when he was just messing around. I believe he had the game's best interest in the forefront of his mind and wanted to help until he was rejected. Then all bets were off. I watch him from time to time play other games and he plays them legit and is very good. He's a smart player. He doesn't exploit on them. Maybe it is because they are actually coded properly. He was also one of the first to figure out the ways of the flashlight on DbD and provided a lot of info to other players on how to use them correctly. The guy is really smart. He gets a lot of hate, but I think he came from a spot of good intentions at first. This may be an unpopular response, but I really don't care what others think. As far as the OP's issue, sorry to hear you are having that issue. Hopefully you'll get a response and it will be resolved in the next patch.
  11. Cant wait, dude. Thanks for all you've done for everyone.

    Ghostboy Exits

    I'll follow ya on twitch. I'll also see ya if and when alder streams again. I'm here until I'm banned, which probably won't take much longer. You're right. The forum is and has changed. Not for the good. Catch you on the flip side.
  13. Can we not forget to mention @Tommy86 as far as trying to make players better? I know some don't agree with him, and admittedly, I gave him shit in the beginning too. Especially over not locking doors. But, he has given a ton of info on here so others can better their play. Agree or disagree with him if you will, but the dude knows his stuff and isn't afraid to share his knowledge. He doesn't post a lot anymore, but he deserves some recognition for what he has put out as well. I know I have benefitted from his guides and videos.
  14. Try white noise 2. It's 4 dollars right now. Not out of much if you don't like it.
  15. That would be in their best interest, but their individual names are still associated with Gun and ILL. Unless they wanna change their legal names as well.
  16. Yeah, I'd like to see accountability as well, but in terms of this game....it's dead. Best thing we can do now is inform future consumers of Gun's and IllFonic on new games about how they are via reviews. Limit their income and they may get the picture.
  17. Is anyone really surprised? C'mon. These guys have been.... ah nevermind. Who cares anymore? Let it die.

    Patch Notes - 07.03.18

    Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Not as effective as before but it still works. Just have to wait a bit longer.

    Patch Notes - 07.03.18

    PSA: as patch notes state, you can no longer use an emote to cancel out of the sweater animation as the sweater girl. However, you can still hit the activation button and then immediately drop an item such as a health spray or the mask and get out of the animation lock. Quick time events (repair mini game) can no longer be spammed to trigger an easier repair. It will go through a bit of a longer animation and possibly change your camera angle. I kinda like this. The health sprays "not spawning" in certain locations are now what appears to be a random chance. Play the same map twice and where a health spray didn't spawn in a "set place" may be there the second time. It's random now. Not sure if that was intended or just an issue, but I like it. Sprays really shouldn't be a given. Randomness is good. Keeps things fresh. The counselors don't shake during the kill animation any longer but sometimes Jason does. There is an area on Pinehurst where if you hit Jason with firecrackers as he grabs you you will fall through the damn map and keep going. Quick Dodge seems to be gone now. Hit Jason even if he is blocking and dodge quickly to avoid a grab. This seems to have been removed or altered. Need more time with it to be sure.

    Patch Notes - 07.03.18

    I didn't get to play long today, but one thing I did notice is that the mini game for repairs has been changed. You can't immediately cancel out of it and start a new one like you used to. It takes a bit longer now. Med sprays are not spawning in as much (thank God). One thing I wanted to try is the sweater. I know they said you can't cancel out with an emote, but I wonder if you can by dropping an item still. I wanted to try it today, but someone felt the need to run me over with the car before I could use it. Anyone come across anything else yet?
  21. I can confirm on Higgins small that one did not spawn in the upstairs bathroom. There was still one on the porch and at the top of the stairs (so that is 2 immediately upon spawn). On crystal small, the one at the lifeguard stand on the beach was not there (no one had been there). I needed a spray for a trap but didn't have a health spray. None of the others players stated they had any sprays, but I'm chalking that up to greed. So, some are now gone, but I haven't had a chance to extensively test it. I'm good with lower med sprays. There were too damn many to begin with.

    Most annoying thing about QP

    All of the above plus toxic assholes and "lone wolfers" who feel the need to use others to survive. They don't contribute jack shit to the match but speed loot and take the car or boat even though they were nowhere to help. Then they wanna say how good they are, lol. Clowns.
  23. I did them all as savini as well. Have them on my YouTube as well. He looked awesome in them.
