  1. Your kidding right? I would have thought the big three in game exploits (under the bridge, on the roof and hiding in the cabin wall) would have been fixed by now. These exploits I've seen in videos long before the game launch.
  2. Better be careful with those bear traps, if you make it a habit to "accidentally kill" your fellow counselors. Someone might report you for helping Jason, resulting in a ban. I wish I could say that was all a joke and in fun but knowing the player base and how there are asshats being dicks, I can see it happen. Regardless, you shouldn't get penalized for someone dying in a trap you placed. To me, if you walk into a trap that results in your death then it should be a suicide or just a death. It should be different so it sticks out like how the Jason kills are shown in the results screen. By the way its getting to the point that that I don't even want to play for fear of doing an exploit that would result in a ban. I wasn't aware using combat stance was an exploit when breaking down doors. Great, something I did when even remembered to enter combat stance. This exploit crap is getting old, just fix the f'ing game already. Oh wait...
  3. Thanks for confirming what I pretty much already had picked up on from playin the game and watching various live broadcasts on you tube. While the OP may believe his tactics work, they really don't and seem to more focus on small group tactics and screw the rest of the counselors. The perfect example is the talk about how a group can quickly get a car fixed before Jason can shift.. That's great for those 2 or 4 players but by leaving every door open you are screwing everyone else you leave behind when they have to fend for themselves. While sure I have seen well organized players repair a car quickly, a experienced Jason player will have no real problem stopping them. Locking doors is always a good idea to do from the start of the match. It will prevent Jason from just walking in on you. I have had this happen to me a while ago. I get into a cabin and lock the door and head to the back door only to run into Jason coming in from the back door. Locked doors can also be a sign that the cabin has already been searched. The only reason to not lock a door is late in the match (if you find one still unlocked that is), is late in the match when Jason has his rage activated. If Jason is on your ass, spending time locking a door he will just be able to break down in seconds is pretty much pointless.
  4. As much a I like playing Jason, it doesn't feel right to get selected to play him when you just were him two matches ago while in the same core group of players. This happened to me about a week ago (last time I played actually) and I ended up leaving the group so it wouldn't happen again. Hopefully they can fix this somehow by adding in some Jason counter. Something like, If you played Jason you are skipped over in the random selection until someone who hasn't been Jason gets chosen, with priority to those who have the settings for playing Jason over a counselor. That of course would only work in a group that doesn't change at all since when someone leaves and a new player joins they would mess the counter up. Maybe in a changing match group here could be added a priority to the players who stay in the same group that haven't been Jason yet. I know this sound a bit crappy at best for an idea. Even after rereading it myself it sounds more complicated than it should. Lack of sleep and no caffeine can do that to my fragile warped mind. lol!
  5. I can see her being used for the single player part of the game that I understand is on the way.
  6. So are these perma bans or bans with time limits like 1 month for a first infraction? I'm not to fond of the idea of banning people for using in game glitches. These are in the game because the developers missed them in playtesting or something in the coding. These should be fixed as they are found but not something that is ban worthy. Of course exploiting a glitch all the time I can see as a problem. I still say the easiest solution for stopping player counselors killing each other is turn friendly fire off. It would solve both the intentional killing as well as the accidental "I'm sorry officer, I just didn't see Chad until it was to late. He just ran out in front of the car."
  7. 1. Just dumb luck? 2. What Perks do you have equipped? Check the negative effects of them to make sure thy are not giving you more noise or fear. I have a Level Headed the gives me +14% sense avoidance chance and -0% noise generating penalty. Sense is Jason's Predator vision, as I like to call it and he can spot anyone from a good distance away. Having fear can easily give you away so any perk that lowers that or doesn't add to it can be useful. 3. A smart Jason seems to typically go after the stealth counselors first because they can be a royal pain later in the match especially if that player using these stealth counselors know how to really play them. Its a big map when you have to hunt down someone who is playing hide and seek. 4. Deborah has great repair/intelligence skill and AJ has really good repair/intelligence. So just like 3 above, you may be a target because you are a threat to repair the car, boat and phone while being stealthy. 5. Are any other players near you when Jason finds you? If you are next to near to someone playing with low stealth like Adam and Brandon 'Buggzy' in your example, they will give you away, so its best to stay away from them as mush as possible. If you can, team up with another stealthy counselor. 6. Are you in game chat and talking with other players? If so, you have to remember that the player playing as Jason can hear what you are saying. You may be giving yourself away by saying what you are doing or where you are headed. A fatal flaw even when using the walkie-talkies if Jason is near the one speaking. 7. Try running for a short bit then crouch to regain stamina when you are not able to get into a building.
  8. Its been a while since getting booted to the game menu but I have routinely been booted right out of the game and to the Xbox One home screen several times. Of course now that I mention this I'll probably get booted all the time to the game menu now.... Just more problems that the game has that needs fixing.
  9. Either make it more visible to see on the map by having it flash a bit more maybe in yellow for example or make a larger than usual "sound bubble" thing on the screen so you at least know the direction the trap that got set off is in. By the way, spamming traps is a strategy for Jason just like a counselor using a packet knife to disarm these traps. Keep in min that not all Jason's have a lot of traps to use. I think its just Part two that starts off with 5 of them.
  10. Host migration has to be the priority "to do" after they fix all the current problems the game has on all systems. I don't care about maps or new cloths or new Jason's until this is dealt with first. Its getting really old to suddenly get booted out of the game because the host left. This seems to usually happens when they are not Jason and get killed after Tommy has been summoned. Even if the host disconnects de to no fault of their own it would be nice to have so the rest of the players in the match can continue playing, if the host wasn't Jason of course. The only thing just as annoying than this missing feature, is having players leave the match after Tommy shows up. While it may not affect the those playing as a counselor I have a hunch it affects the one playing Jason in regards to earning experience for kills.
  11. These guys are doing a hell of a lot more for their game and the people who bought it than the dickless wonders at EA/BioWare and Mrap Effect Andromeda. Lets see what we got from EA/BioWare... a few patches to "fix" faces and other things that shouldn't have needed fixing in the first place if ANYONE had an ounce of professionalism and gave a crap about the game they were working on and oh wait, nothing. Not a crap load of credits to buy any multiplayer loot boxes, no special skin for the car and sure as hell not a single apology saying "Sorry we screwed you over by having third rate nobodies work on our major AAA franchise. But hey, how about our Anthem game! You're gonna buy that aren't you?" At least IllFonic and Gun Media gave us two sets of free clothing for the counselors, a crap load of CP (when this double xp event happens) and a retro Jason skin that adds a bit of fun for those players that actually like to have fun in the game. While the game is back to bugfest because of this, I do appreciate the gesture that they at least give a crap, not only about the game but the players.
  12. I still find it odd that it can be a kill when the window was opened. Closed and broken sure but open? That's more like Jason helping you get out or in the building by tossing you through the window. "Here, let me give you a hand."
  13. Trouble you would have to be certain you know who it is that you want to report. If there are a few people playing the same counselor that are all alive at the time you might report the wrong one. Had an issue with a recent host that was helping Jason by camping out right in front of where two players had hid in tents, he used the shotgun to shoot one (don't know if they took damage) and when he got killed he quit the match when there was only one counselor left and about 8 minutes left screwing everyone over. There are asshats out there for sure.
  14. I'm going to have to agree with the idea of delaying the Double XP Weekend. I just tried to get into a quick play match, well several actually and got disconnected on 1 of them so badly I got booted right out of the game and onto the xbox one home screen. Five other attempts sent me into my own lobby and the one I did actually get into a lobby with people only had a single player and he bailed out (wonder why?) seconds after I got there. This crap is happening BEFORE this event has even started. Just to be clear, before the freebie pack the quick play feature was mostly working. What the hell is the point to even have an event when most of you players cant even play it without the new problems that have popped up from this free content pack stacked on top of the old problems that haven't been fully fixed? *Edit* Of course I just now got into a match and the host was an asshat helping Jason by standing by where 2 others were hiding, shooting at one of them and then quitting the match when he got killed with one counselor left and about 8 minutes on the clock. But that's all another issue on its own...
  15. This kind of sounds like this may just have been an oversight by the developers or they didn't expect players to drive the car backwards as much. It kind sounds like it could be an exploit they didn't think of. One way to fix the problem would to allow Jason to damage the rear of the car like he can the front.
  16. I feel your pain but you have to remember that this game was a kickstarter game made by a small indi game company. Its not made by some big company that is also backed by another big company. While I hate the bug and matchmacking with the mega botched Xbox launch and griped about it. I gave them a lot more leeway and let a lot of things slide than I did with a AAA title game like Mass Effect Andromeda. A game that was insulting at the way EA/BioWare even thought that they could release a game that was unfinished and showed just how they didn't give a crap about the franchise.
  17. Or as I just saw on facebook by the usual asshat trolls, blaming her for buying an xbox.
  18. As far as I know I haven't encountered this at all in any matches on the XboxOne I have been in.. People should just play the game and enjoy it. Why get a migraine over how someone else is plying Jason. Let them play how they want to. When I play as Jason I usually try to do grab kills. I usually am to far away to find an environmental one to do before they get out of the grab hold and I still have yet to figure out how to do a weapon kill. -I must be missing something on that is probably right in front of me on screen ... I also like to actually have fun as Jason depending on the group I'm with. If they are organized I have to go for blood to stop them from escaping by the car or boat. I have listened in on the game chat to hear what they are saying and planning but ignored it as best as I could, even going out of my way to avoid them for a bit after I do a quick scare window break or kill the power. I have hunted a player down into a cabin only to smash a few windows then leave to another part of the map. I have taught a group of 4 counselors that taking the boat isn't a good idea when I am in the water. ( I drowned 3 of them but one did sneak up and take the boat wile I was on the shore. I got within about 5 feet of them before they left the map. I also was on the receiving end of this lesson just a few days ago.) I have walked up to a player who obviously had some serious lag issues (he had mentioned it in the prior match) and just walked by them instead of going for the easy kill. (Wish I had thought to take a screenshot with Jason posing next to the counselor. "Having fun at Crystal Lake! Wish you were here.") As a counselor it doesn't bother me at all how I get killed. Sure, I would love to see something different now and then (and have from time to time) but I got caught and getting killed is the punishment you get for getting caught. Be it by slash or by grab, by environmental or by weapon. A kill is a kill by any other name.
  19. As much as I appreciate the so-so fix on quick matches, getting stuck into a your own lobby while joining a quick match gets old. If I wanted to start my own lobby I would have created a party. It doesn't help that some times while exiting this solo lobby the game goes into a freeze that requires me to eit the game, quit it and then restart it.
  20. Wait, what? You are kidding me right? The backers are kind of meh about the Savini Jason? I was in a match with someone using that Jason and thought it was evil looking. Granted I don't know his weapon kills but still it looks sweet. I would kill to get my hands on one and would gladly pay $10 for it if it were to be released ( I know they said it wont but I can wish). If I knew about the kickstarter I would have jumped on board in a second. The first Friday the 13th was the first horror and R rated film I saw. My friends mom bought the tickets so we could see it. This clothing dlc is another deal for the kickstarters right? Kind of sucks it has also met with so-so results.
  21. *EDITED to add a few details after a match where a kid claimed to have both sets of keys as well as thinking up a few alternate ideas. I can understand the challenges of adding her to the game. In the first film she does most of the killing in stealth like mode or as "a familiar" face. The game is more full out Jason kill mode. He shows up announces his intentions and begins to hunt. So if anything the biggest problem would be that change from a stalker like game to more stealth like game a full brains over brawn thing. You guys have done a great job of getting the film setting just right so adding her in a Jason only film series would be a little off. Ideas: If she was added to the existing game as it is. That is no new special map. 1. Pamela is only used on the Camp Crystal Lake map and if the setting for Jason is on random. She would be randomly selected. You might get a Jason or you might get Pamela. 2. She would be killable. 3. She would be more like Tommy Jarvis in that she would have her own "hero" stats, perks and powers. Perks would include a sense ability that not only lasts for a minute or two but recharges very quickly. She should also have some thing that allows her to move quickly from one location to another on the map. She does have intimate knowledge about the camps layout so she should be able to move around faster from location to location, especially in the dark .Maybe something like what Jason has but with very limited use and shorter range. 3a. Perk/Power: healing ability. She could use this to help keep her alive has the same effect as the med spray. This could also remove the need to have an inventory slot to pick up the med spray. 4. She has no music to warn anyone that she is nearby. 5. She uses any weapon the counselors can and pick up items as well. She would stat off with a weapon of course. That means she will have access to the walki-talkie and med sprays. The walkei-talkie to listen in and med sprays to heal herself. To go the extra evil mile maybe even have her pick up batteries, gas and the propeller so on that the counselors will need to escape or fix things. This means she could set up traps to lure players to get an item. 5a. Inventory slots would be limited to just one to prevent hoarding anything. Unless the healing perk is added (3a) then she wouldn't have any inventory slots and not be able to loot the small items. She would now also start with the walkie-talkie. 5b. She can uninstall the battery and propeller. 5c. She can not repair anything to use a vehicle. Figured this would need highlighted to make sure its clear. 5d. When carrying the fuel, battery or propeller she will still drop the weapon she has equipped if it was a picked up one. She will still have her default weapons on her to use (machete and bow) but will have to drop the item she is carrying to use them. This will prevent her from being defenseless if the player tries to mess around with these items and be able to hunt on the fly if opportunity rises. 6. Since she is killable her health and stamina would be just like the film and maybe better than the best Jason and counselor. This would giver her more running time as well as more hit points Hey, she did toss a body through a window and take a beating by the end of the film. 7. She would obviously be able to enter buildings that have unlocked doors. Once inside she could hide in the usual hiding spots but there would be no warning dialog like you get from the counselors. Just like in the film where she hid under a cot, for who knows how long before killing Jack (Kevin Bacon). She could even be able to jump through the open windows as well as open and close them. 8. To balance things out in regards to the guns in the game, Pamela gets a bow and 5 or so arrows. This would work just like Jason's knives. The arrows would also do more damage than the knives. This also fits in with the film. 9. When using the cb radio to call Tommy, Tommy is replaced by a police officer. Similar to Tommy, he has a pistol with a single shot. I was thinking of having it be Steve Christy but his fate is sealed in the film. A lot of these ideas would make the game harder and more challenging and really force players to work together, that is my intended idea. Sure you get some players who are scary at how good they play Jason but he still is a brute. A perfect example would be do you have someone guard the car you just put the battery in or risk leaving it unguarded. The addition of Pamela having a walkie-talkie could work or not but since there are plenty of players who constantly talk or have something n the background making a lot of noise (radio/tv or kids) Jason already can hear some of these people.
  22. Yes, exactly with out the effect we get the same result. Jason would either just show up in front of me or I would try and zig-zag to avoid what is coming and still probably run into the cabin I just left, the tree next to that cabin, or Jason who is probably wondering why I'm bouncing around between a tree and a cabin wall. Yes, that is an exaggeration of what happens but for me it is what it feels like playing when that scratch effect hits.
  23. How true. I didn't even know that the game was even being made until I started to see some live broadcasts of the game about a month ago. I was hooked on this game just watching them and couldn't wait to play. I could easily go play half a dozen new AAA games like Ghost Recon Wildlands, Injustice 2 or Crap Effect Andromeda (need aspirin to stop the instant headaches that game gives me). As much as I hate the constant disconnects I still jump back into Friday the 13th.
  24. Totally agree. The game is intense at times especially when Jason is after you. Unfortunately that scratched video tape effect when Jason shifts just destroys the horror atmosphere feel to the game.
  25. That's nice, to bad it doesn't do anything for the players who still cant play the game most of the time since it came out over two weeks ago.
