  1. So I was selected to be Jason on Pinehurst, and a Deborah seemed to be hiding at the main house. She lit up on my sense, but the house didn’t light up. Turns out she was inside the chimney. Having a good time too. Apparently, according to the player doing it, this has been around for some time, but as someone who plays daily, I’ve never encountered this. While in the chimney, she can’t be grabbed, but I slashed the shit out of her, and he quit before he died. So even though it sucks that it’s there, it’s essentially a free kill. Have you guys seen this, or is this a new one?
  2. My favorite moments as Jason is when I’ve got the opportunity to be clever and scare the counselor, as opposed to being a tank and just running through everyone. Stalk is by far my favorite ability, and I’ll wait inside cabins or bathrooms for people to come in unaware. Barreling through counselors doesn’t affect players at all, but if you manage to scare them, they change the way they play.
  3. Picking a new Jason would never work. If I were a counselor and got picked to be the new Jason mid-game, the first thing I’d do is remember what people were doing before I got selected and intercept them. The game ending is the best result we can expect. It’s annoying, and for the life of me, I don’t know why people don’t take 30 seconds to change their preferences, but everyone remaining gets free points, so there’s not much to complain about.
  4. I’m all for Jason getting a buff, personally. It doesn’t bother me, I was just caught off-guard that it did it three games in a row.
  5. I’m cool with it, but I wish I’d have known before I took the chance lol. I got decapitated.
  6. The servers work fine for me, but I’m curious as to balance changes they might have made. In the last 3 games straight, my bat didn’t stun Jason at all.
  7. I thought this glitch was gone for good. Just happened this morning. I’m starting to think the game introduces its own bugs whenever it wants.
  8. The polite way to say this is just to tell you there must be more than one way to do it then, because yes it is. I watched one of them do it.
  9. Right. I thought the exact same thing. This was taken because it was the first time I’ve seen it since it was patched out. But since this screen grab, a friend told me over half the room he was in were all up on the roof. THEN, a different friend of mine showed up later and told me he learned how to do it from a random. He showed me (it’s somewhat similar to how it was done the first way, but the location is slightly different), and it’s pretty easy. It spread pretty fast too, apparently. All I can suggest is to avoid Packanack for awhile unless you’re with friends.
  10. A friend of mine just showed me how to do it this morning. He came from a room where everyone was doing it. Yeah, it can be done by yourself, with a trap. For fuck’s sake... it could get much, much worse.
  11. I have no idea. After I died I just started browsing spectator mode and he was already there.

    Patch Notes [PC] - 08.15.18

    Agreed, but not in this fashion. It kills a play mechanic. If anything, it could encourage more people to take up Jason-hunting. Better odds than surviving in the boat.

    Then the reward for doing so should be much, much higher. If the reward for surviving is the exact same across the board no matter the method, players will use the path of least resistance; that’s just common sense. If the fuse — a multi-step process itself — can get everyone out, why do TWICE the work with TWICE the risk to only get two players to safety? Theres no motivation at all to attempt the boat now. The stealth was the boat’s only upside for all the work. That’s gone now.

    Patch Notes [PC] - 08.15.18

    I definitely disagree with the boat alert. 1) Unlike the fuse and phone box, the propellor OR gas isn’t always in the general area of the boat. From my experience, one is and one isn’t. Usually, one component is clear across the map. 2) The propellor’s size often makes it difficult to find, and easy to overlook. 3) The boat only holds two. 4) Even Jason’s that are slow in the water can catch the boat if they morph to a strategic place. 5) It takes no skill to kill counselors in the water. Counselors are helpless if the boat overturns. A simple button tap gives Jason an insta-kill. And now Jason gets alerted when the boat starts? Why the hell would I even TRY to find both boat components? The boat can be tough to put together, but it’s rewarding as a stealthy escape if you managed to get it done. Now it’s not going to be worth the effort at all. UNLESS... you start the boat, immediately leave it, then try to come back to it when Jason’s busy. Overall though, it sounds too high risk/low reward to me. If I want to go skydiving, and the instructor tells me that 90% of the parachutes won’t open, I ain’t goin’.
  15. In terms of content, what are they ignoring? Questions asked of them? Because when they announced the end of content, they made themselves pretty clear.
  16. I’m not a fan of Uber, the Grendel or the movie they come from. I could’ve cared less if they ever released. But with my bias out of the way, while I DO empathize with those who were looking forward to them, I can’t say I completely understand it. The community never seemed satisfied with ANYTHING they did.
  17. That was an easy fix. All that took was a simple click to delete the clips and re-rendering the vid. Still, you’re 350% on-point.
  18. And here we go... Let it go, let it gooooo🎵
  19. Didn’t they give him some small “buffs” just a bit ago lol? I actually think Jason is weaker now than he’s ever been. Slasher, I’ve done something similar already lol. Told a guy he was too troublesome to worry about now, and left the cabin. Hit stalk and waited until climbed out the window. Stalk is my favorite ability. Some are catching on though.
  20. Traps are always good, but I admit I like to save my traps. With part 2 I’d be ok, but I tend to save traps to keep myself in the habit for when I’m part 4 and don’t have a lot to go around. I do use the environment when I can, and I’m blocking more often than I used to. But just like you guys said, that takes awhile. They’ll gang beat until a weapon breaks, then tag out while they go get another. I try to only slash if I’m in serious danger (like a group of 3+), but I admit I should probably use it more often. I’m just trying to learn new techniques because I’ve seen some Jasons pull it off consistently. Just had a Battle Chad and Tommy showing no mercy a few days ago; whippin my ass. I finally got the Chad because, while jogging and juking in front of me, he stumbled, and Tommy missed with his save swing. I had just enough time to execute him. But had Chad not stumbled, that would’ve been twice the nightmare. Oddly, with the old grab, they wouldn’t have lasted half that time.
  21. The only trouble I have as Jason is consistently beating the counselor juke. Sometimes I beat them, sometimes I don’t, but that’s one-on-one. Get two or more counselors saving each other with every grab though, and I’m ready to punch babies. The new grab and Jason’s slow recovery gets me every time. I’m trying to beat them consistently, and it just doesn’t go my way. Sometimes shift and stalk tactics are beneficial, but counselors that travel as a group limit its effectiveness.
  22. Sounds like you have your mind made up. I happen to agree with you that they knew, but that’s speculation. But here you are, once again passing your personal opinion off as fact. I’m sorry I hurt your feelings, but the truth is the truth. There are legal issues here, so there are promises that can’t be kept. What I DO agree with is that those promises shouldn’t have been made to begin with, given what I think they already knew. But bitching about it now? You’re beating a dead horse. You’re flogging nothing but bones. I’m not defending them, I’m defending what I think is right. While you say that you weren’t saying what I claimed you did, and you were just quoting them, you were clearly using their quote against them to justify why they should keep their promises. All I did in my original post to you was point out that quotes like that aren’t meant to be taken at face value, and that the situation is a lot more complicated than members here are making it out to be.
  23. Again, common sense. I’m speculating as well, but at the very least, I own it, and don’t make radical — and in some cases — ridiculous claims that Gun and Illfonic have plenty of money to get the bills paid based on zero facts. Furthermore, I also don’t expect people to work for free because they said, “This isn’t about money”. Just because someone says that a project is, “A labor of love” doesn’t mean that they’ll put paying gigs on the back burner to work for nothing so that a few people will have a new model and map. A new model and map, BTW, that people will just bitch about the instant they’re released. I think there’s a lot you can complain at Gun and Illfonic for, but the way the community chooses to communicate it is doing more harm than good. I have my own beef with their lack of transparency and communication but, after seeing the way fans act in here, I’m not surprised they treat us like we loaned them money. Why would they WANT to answer our questions? The community isnt satisfied with any answer they’ve EVER given, and fans just blatantly make up their own answers anyway.
  24. Truthfully, I think people believe they have money rolling in because of the community saying they do with zero evidence to back those claims up. My argument from the beginning regarding this mess is that people are making claims and passing them off as fact, when in truth, what’s being presented aren’t facts at all. It’s all speculation that spirals out of control. Most of the content they released has been free. Dedicated servers are still coming, and it’s not cheap. Mostly everything they’ve sold has been bought already. At some point, that steady stream of revenue stops and, for Illfonic especially, they need to be working on something that can make money, because eating is good. Im not arguing against all the complaints, just the ones that either defy common sense, or the ones that have only speculation as its foundation.
