  1. Any thoughts on how the Grendel's layout might affect shifting?
  2. Again, the argument is moot because by definition, going AFK means that they're not playing the game. Which is exactly why I said it'd be better for the OP to just grind XP with bots, because that way he doesn't have to deal with trolls, rage-quitters, Jason-helpers, etc. and he still gets the XP he wants without annoying anyone in return. What's wrong with that exactly? And it's absolutely priceless how you're chastising me for daring to tell the OP "how he should play the game", and then you follow it up by telling me to stop bitching, adapt and overcome. kind of hypocritical of you, don't you think?
  3. You'd have a point here, except that going AFK doesn't involve actually playing the game. In fact, it's the opposite of actually playing the game. If he wants his lvl 150 so badly, he should just grind XP with bots. That'll give him exactly what he wants without having to be a douche to anyone else.
  4. Let's cut the retard a little slack, it's not his fault that his game was off a bit. He had just lost him home, his mom, his sack, and got a machete buried in his shoulder just the previous night.
  5. @deathbat96777 some of your ideas have some merit (Jason-specific deaths, looting and throwing bodies, popping tires, etc.) But making every Jason run, shift, and break doors exactly the same would seriously reduce any incentive to pick one Jason over another.
  6. If the only means for counselors to survive a match was to go the distance and last the entire 20 mins, then, maybe removing shift and morph would be a viable option. As it stands now, though, this is such an absurd notion that I'm not quite sure whether to laugh or facepalm in response.
  7. Basically it boils down to this: The issue isn't the mechanics of playing Tommy, but how some people choose to play as Tommy. So, it's really a people issue, not a game issue. Yet your solution is to make changes to the game in order to fix a people issue. ok...
  8. She's a Voorhees. Gotta respect that.
  9. So, what happens when Tommy's driving the last few survivors out? The car just stalls at the exit?
  10. walkie talkie

    @JasonWhorehees Sounds like you and everyone else in your match might be using party chat rather than game chat, in which case, yeah... walkie talkies become useless. Otherwise, you'd only hear players that are close by without the walkies.
  11. Yeah, I'm with you on that one. If I get any, cool. If I don't, no biggy.
  12. The F13 Films: What Worked/What Didn't

    Continuing with Part 2 WHAT WORKED Story Time: Considering that the Friday the 13th movies are a modern take on old campfire tales, I felt it was incredibly fitting that the exposition we get from Paul about Jason's legend comes in the form of an actual story told around a campfire. It's part meta, part foreshadowing, and part inviting the very evil you're denying exists. WHAT DIDN'T WORK What Are You, Psychic: The bar scene with Ginny, Paul, and Ted discussing the legend of Jason is a good way to setup her using her child psychology training on Jason during the climax of the film. The only issue, though, is that throughout this conversation, Ginny makes a ton of assumptions about Jason that are completely unrelated to anything Paul said about him around the campfire, but her speculations later turn out to be 100% correct, despite the fact that at this point they all consider Jason to only be a myth. Once again, this was an easy problem to fix. They make a point of having Ginny being really invested in analysing Jason's story, so all that was really needed is to add a line of dialogue where she says she's been researching the facts behind the legend to use in a school assignment.

    Very interesting. I never got to read any of the novelizations before, so thanks for that link. I think Hawke might be leaning a little too heavily in this "devil-child" idea he has about Jason's birth and childhood, but his description of how Jason thinks and how he found Alice would have been a good fit in the movie.
  14. The F13 Films: What Worked/What Didn't

    Moving along with the first sequel, I'll switch it up to presenting only one aspect that worked and one that didn't, per post. That way, it'll avoid the wall-of-text syndrome, and give everyone an incentive to join in and contribute to the conversation. FRIDAY THE 13TH: PART 2 WHAT WORKED Passing the Machete: Having Jason take over as the killer may seem like a no-brainer today, but apparently it wasn't something they'd originally planed on doing. The original Friday the 13th was basically a modern (at the time) version of a "haunted woods" campfire tale, only it had a real, flesh and blood killer in it. Well, Jason's entire backstory made him the perfect candidate for the part of the boogeyman haunting those woods. Before him, Camp Crystal Lake was "cursed", but nobody could really say by what exactly. With this film, the curse finally got a name, and it's Jason Voorhees! He's not only the missing piece that was needed to complete the puzzle, but his inclusion also brought the story full circle, with the son now avenging the mother, adding another layer to the myth. WHAT DIDN'T WORK Google It: Something of a head scratcher comes right out of the gate in this film, and that's how Jason managed to track down where Alice lives. I get that they just wanted to tie up that loose end and move on as quickly as possible, but it's still a pretty huge plot hole to have in your movie, especially since it's right in the opening scene. It's not like we've ever seen Jason find out her name or look her up in a phonebook, but it's not inconceivable either that he could've discovered that information somehow. He could've have gotten it from the hospital where Alice was taken at the end of the first film. After all, the hospital would have her address on file, and the cops would surely ask for those contact information should they have any follow-up questions to ask her. Jason could've either stolen her file or overheard someone mention Alice's address in a conversation. Either options would've taken very little screen time to show, and prevented this baffling plot hole from ever existing.
