  1. Agree 100% with everything you said there... If there was another me, I could agree more than100%, but I am still working on my clone. It has nothing to do with the game, it has EVERYTHING to do with your lack of ability to process information... and your tendency to melt like a snowflake when you read something you don't like. I will repeat in no uncertain terms with simple words... just for you. The devs need to see how your weapon turned invisible to be able to "replicate" it before they can understand how it happened so they can address the problem and hopefully fix it. They CANNOT replicate it if they cannot see how it happened. You DID NOT show them this, or are you going to ignore this point AGAIN. I did not dismiss your other video... You DID NOT show what happened to turn you weapon invisible and thus "cause" the weapon to become invisible. You dismissed what I said completely though... which is not unexpected from an SJW. It is their preferred tactic in conversation or debate. I have yet to meet one SJW with a valid opinion on anything due to their complete dismissal of every other opinion that does not echo their own... And I have met MANY of them. Mr. Cool explained why your Jason behaved how you described. Mr. Fire explained that this was supposed to be fixed, but it was not. Others explain things to you and you ignore them because you are right and they are wrong, but you are wrong. Here is a simple truth for you... You cannot have a valid opinion while ignoring even one aspect of the story... and without a valid opinion, you will look like a fool to anyone with a brain that knows what is going on. There was one part of your video that everyone else seems to have missed. Right at the start of your video, the window in the house next door is also visible, and it was open. Someone was nearby, Jason CANNOT open windows. Post that entire match, I bet you smashed the windows in that cabin and started the video after you finished walking around the cabin smashing the windows. You are not close enough to the morph pin in that area to have just morphed there when the video starts. Out of context videos prove NOTHING... show it from the start. The only part I left out of my explanation as to why you are answered with... "get over it", is something that I thought would go without saying around here... We have heard it... literally thousands of times. We have given logical arguments that people like you seem to ignore, thousands of times... After the first thousand responses to people like you, we start to lose patience... and you will get no apologies for it... so get over it. Jason is not invulnerable even with rage... Just you saying that shows how little you know on the subject. Before you have an opinion on something EDUCATE yourself on the subject first. Once you have a valid opinion with logical arguments, the only people that will give you a hassle are the people who remain uniformed by their own choice. Do you understand, or do I need to use simpler words for you? There may be MANY people that agree with you... and literally all of them will make the same uniformed arguments that you have. Nothing will ever be changed for the better by listening to people that do not have all of the information they need to have a valid opinion... Nothing will ever change for the better basing actions on lies either... so get over it. I ended nothing but my post with that. The conversation only ends when we both agree its over, no matter the outcome... What I just quoted here from your response is the typical response from an SJW... Freedom of speech is only effective when there are no infringements upon it... end of story... If you want to post on a public forum, then you have authorized the debate to ANYONE who wants to respond... it comes with posting on a PUBLIC FORUM so get over it. There is no freedom of speech if ANY speech has to be authorized at ANY point in ANY debate or conversation. What you suggest is literally the opposite of free speech... You seem to be typing in English, but you sure don't understand the language very well. Also... free speech comes with the license to make a fool out of yourself... so keep talking, please. I find it rather amusing. Your 4th idea, as I said was awesome in case you missed that point. But as I said, you were not the first to think of it... and new content cannot now be implemented... This would at minimum take animations that are not in the game... If it is not in the game, then it is "new content"... and there will never be any more new content in this game for reasons you should already know by now. As to rage mode, no one here came up with it, that was the devs. All of us here made suggestions. Some were good, some were bad... many were worth consideration. Rage is what we got though and it has been stated on MANY occasions that it is not going anywhere... and people wonder why we say... get over it. Many of us got over it a long time ago, and some of us simply welcomed it when it happened. It solved the problem of Jason spending most of the match locked in a stun animation. This was simple to do to a VERY skilled Jason with only one counselor... let alone the groups of battle Chads that usually showed up to try and get the Jason player to rage quit... and many Jason players did just that. I never met a Jason player that EVER volunteered to be a piñata, yet many became one. The piñata Jason was a problem, and it still can be... right up until rage happens... Then it is no longer a problem. Rage did what it needed to do... it made the whiny little trolls come out to cry about not being able to troll Jason quite as effectively as they could before rage... and they were all very easy to spot just from what they said. Only a troll responsible for the piñata Jason problem would ever say that Jason player sucks... It did not even take a skilled counselor player to do it to a great Jason player... So please... tell me who actually 'sucked' at the game, and why rage was not necessary. Your argument so far for this is severely lacking. I almost never take a swing at Jason, and I main A.J. I can lead excellent Jason players on very long wild goose chases outside of cabins without relying on a weapon for extra stamina. It is not that difficult to do it for me, and I am no where near the best player out there from either side of play... If I can do it, so can literally everybody else with a little practice... so get over it. If you do not like rage, you have other tactics to choose from. Not hitting Jason at all will delay rage from kicking in until about 15 minutes into any match. Maybe try escaping instead of fighting. Maybe try escaping early in a match instead of walking around with a bat up your... well you know. Fighting Jason is only a requirement to kill him, or just hitting him to force him to drop someone else in his grip. It was never a requirement to escape, and neither is it a requirement to run out the clock... I have done it myself, and watched it happen quite a few times. Try staying to spectate other players as well... unless you are afraid of learning something. You have an awesome name Math'... Math is the key to the universe... and something I am very good at... It is one of my top interests, right up there with physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, genetics... and a great many other interests I have. Most of which math is a requirement for any kind of understanding of the subject... Do not take what I say here as meant to offend... because it was not... Text messages can easily be misinterpreted... I only use caps to emphasize a point, not to scream... If I wanted to be rude, I would be the last person on earth you would want to speak with. This is me being nice, and censoring myself... even though profanity is not required to be censored here... This is an adult forum for a game meant for adults... so act like one at least.
  2. Apparently you can't read, or do not understand the language we agreed upon at the start of this conversation... or I have found another SJW. Go back... read what I wrote to you... slowly this time. Swinging the invisible bat does not enter into it, and I already explained what they need to see and why in the last post. If the words are too big for you, google is your friend. The "LoL" in your reply really does not give me hope for your I.Q. though... With that thought, you should perhaps google "replicate"... If you do not understand why they would need to do this, you probably do not understand the meaning of the word. Also... you do not need to quote the entire post. Just a tag is sufficient, or you can highlight a line or two of text to quote. Also... I can see you swinging... I cannot see what you are swinging... Do I need to explain why that is too?... Definitely an SJW.
  3. Nope.... A.J. main here and completely disagree. I still almost never take a swing at him and am doing just fine in game... with A.J. against running Jasons... It saddens me that others are not able to do this, but that is on them... I am far from the best player out there and have no problem doing it... without taking a swing at Jason. Not sure how or why others can't figure out how to do it... I have explained how I do it on these forums so many times it makes my head spin... I must be wrong because I am doing something that others apparently can't do... How does that work exactly when I am actually doing what others say is impossible? I can answer that... they are full of crap. If you can't play slow counselors effectively, then don't... play a faster counselor. Personally, I think playing fast counselors is too easy... but I have no problem catching them when playing Jason... The only people I have a problem catching are people that are good at playing the game, not at playing a specific counselor. Certain friends of mine will give ANY Jason player a long run for their money with ANY counselor they play. The main problem I see is... people that are not able to adapt. Its not rocket surgery.
  4. Thank you for your informed opinion and the explanation. I have not been in a game yet in which anyone tried to kill Jason, since the patch I mean... But I suspect I will be soon. As I said many times, giving a few more strikes to remove the mask will not make things harder, it will just take a little while longer. Making literally any job take longer through repetition is not making it more difficult than it was initially, unless HEAVY labor is involved in the task... This is a video game. No heavy labor required here. But at least they tried something... so I will give credit where credit is due. Also... I just got out of a the game by myself in quick play for 2 games... In the first I found the keys and fuse, dropped the fuse off in front of the phone box (no knife for the two traps there or I would have made the call before continuing), found gas and a battery and repaired the two seater by myself... Got the car started and picked up a friendly random, drove past Jason and escaped in about 4 minutes... with A.J. of course. Completely rusty at counselor and Jason (it has been a while)... and still managed to do all this by myself... My second game was Jason... I got 4 out of 6 with one rage quitter I didn't get credit for and Tommy managed to escape to the cops. He gave a pretty damned good chase right to the exit... Only missed 2 quick throws out of 9 knives I had... but I had run out before going after Tommy. Not bad for as rusty as I am. After these two games... I reaffirmed my own stance that counselors need no buffs... and Jason seems alright at this point as well. I don't expect them to do much more with balance, and I am not sure I would want them to. I am not seeing how others can justifiably complain about much of anything as far as balance goes. They all argue like SJWs... Ignore facts, ignore logic, ignore other people's experience and opinions when differing from their own, throw blame at everyone but themselves... and calling others out for doing what they are doing, in this case... being crybabies... I am surprised they are not trying to get us banned to have us silenced, so their voices are the only voices left to hear... like they do on social media... #banallSJWsfromALLplatforms Only bug I saw was the part 9 Jason in the first game became Savini Jason in the 'back to the shack' animation at the end of the match... but I have only played 2 matches since the patch. I need a few smokes before I dive back in. Not sure how it happens, but the only problem is that Jason cannot see that you are holding a weapon. Who cares if you can't see it? It still works normally... Most people do not complain when given this kind of advantage. Also... to fix the problem, they actually have to replicate the problem. If they cannot replicate the problem, they cannot fix it... To be able to replicate it, they need to know how it happened... which you do not show in this video. The video starts with you about to climb through a window and I do not see the weapon in your hand at that point. They need to see what was going on when the weapon became invisible, and probably at least 20 seconds before that point to see what they need to replicate. The devs are not mind readers or magicians... There is no simpler way to explain this that I can see, so I hope this answers your question. Hopefully, this gets fixed one day, but I doubt it would be a priority due to being at the opposite end of the spectrum from 'game breaking' bugs.
  5. Asking for changes to a game to be made because you want to use a different playstyle with a specific counselor is LAUGHABLE. If you want to use a 'no fear' Vanessa... use the perks: Nerves of Steel, the map perk (Preparedness I believe)... and any other perk that reduces fear... But wait... people would cry about not being able to use medic and thick skin. Vanessa is almost universally agreed to be the 'best' counselor simply due to her speed and stamina... She is indeed the most overpowered counselor on those two fronts alone and literally needs no buffs... and neither do ANY of the other counselors. Neither do any of them need any nerfs... They are ALL fine right where they are now. A player will a fair level of skill can run Jason around for ten minutes or more with LaChoppa... But people crying for buffs to Vanessa are just acting like entitled children... and no one should give ANY entitled child (or adult acting like one for that matter) what they want... EVER.
  6. Thank you. And thank you too @Dragonfire82877. All is good with me, and I hope both of you (and everyone else for that matter) can say the same... but I know this is just wishful thinking at this point. There is no time in history that everyone could say all is good... which is just a sad truth... Still, I can hope all is good with everyone... there is always hope. I knew your lowest time would be under 5 minutes... I have been in games with you when you have accomplished it... 3:37 is not surprising to me at all. One more question for you though... if you don't mind... Do you find it harder to kill Jason now that the mask takes more hits to remove? We are on the same page with where counselors and Jason are as far as game ballance... and in the past, we have had very little disagreement on this issue. We respond with 'get over it' for one reason, and one reason only. Its the part you missed... or simply do not understand. This is an 'asymmetrical survival horror game'... which literally means the killer has to be overpowered to have a chance at doing his job against superior numbers. If this makes you angry, then you are the problem. Free speech does not and never could come with the right to not be offended... the two cannot exist together. No matter who you are, or what you say... a minimum of 1 person out of a hundred you speak to will be offended. Free speech is literally a license to offend... it cannot exist otherwise. Get over it and grow a pair. Without free speech, you CANNOT be free. Loss of free speech leads to dictatorship... fascist, communist, or 'other'... Find one example in history in which this is not true... That is a dare. As to you 5 points... 1: No. 2: Already have it. 3: No. You have the option in private matches for so many different reasons I will not list them here. Some wonderful forum members have already listed a few reasons above. 4: An awesome idea that has been spoken of many times, by many of the fine people here. Unfortunately it is never going to happen. You may find some of the reasons why it will never happen in threads that talk about it... There are a few of these threads, but the names of them escape me at the moment. The search option at the top of the page works very well though. Its too bad about this one, there was so much that could have been done with it. 5: Absolutely not... Way too much potential for abuse of stats. If you want to play stealthy, play A.J. If you want to play with a fast runner with high stamina, play as Vanessa... and so on. 6: There are still bugs with muting other players, and bugs affecting microphones. They have existed in the game for a long time, possibly since the beginning. You can however, mute the same person again... This takes two seconds out of your life... so not a big deal. Turning off 'push to talk' fixes the bug with the microphone... Also not a big deal... but you will be playing with an open mic... so watch what you say, others may be streaming... also not a big deal. Also... developers ARE also players. They may not play as much as the rest of us, but that does not make them "not players".
  7. Actually, I am pretty damned good at playing counselors... I escape consistently 6 out of 10 matches, and sometimes more often than that... For the rest of those matches, I contributed to at least the possibility of someone else escaping before I died... Putting in car or boat parts or getting the cops called VERY early in almost every match I play. I do not leave in a car without all passenger seats filled, although I will not wait for others in a boat if they can't keep up to A.J. I do all this without hardly ever taking a swing at Jason unless it is to save someone else... How do I do this you ask, running away works. Jogging to reduce sound pings... unless you are in sense range (which is WAY smaller than most people think), Jason does not know anyone is even in that direction... You would be amazed how well avoiding Jason works, it just does not work all the time, or we would be super powered invisible ninjas... It sound like only the crybabies want that... sensible people do not. But this often gives one enough time to get their shit together and get a vehicle started or cops called before Jason knows what is going on... Oh... one thing you haven't tried yet... stop hitting Jason. Rage does not activate until 15 minutes in if no one touches him. Plenty of time to escape before rage hits and if you watch your stamina you can lead him on a merry chase for ages with our lord and savior LaChoppa… but that does require some level of actual skill and... gasp!... tactics. Sorry I didn't read the entire discussion, but when you said this... I had to stop and say something. Your arguments are weak... and you seem to not know how to play the game, but that is on you. And trying to fit a few big words in does not make you look intelligent when you deny logic. Several people here have tried to explain things logically to you and you argue like an SJW that will not even hear or acknowledge that things can and do work in ways you think they don't. I have only read the thread to this point and it seems you and a few others accusing people of being crybabies should look in the mirror. Counselors that work together and have a half decent knowledge of spawn points for parts can get both cars running and escape before Jason gets his first shift... he cannot stop them short of catching them before they start the car... and Jason can only be in one place at a time. Under 3 minutes and 6 escapes are possible in that time, even against damned good Jason players. I have been the driver in several of these cars, and had it done to me while playing Jason... and if you think the Jason players I have done it too suck, or I suck as Jason... then you are a blind fool that does not understand what I just wrote. Counselors don't need anything more than they have... You are flat out wrong. With proper teamwork (rare to find but it happens), Jason can be killed very quickly... within minutes. @GeneiJin What is your fastest time killing Jason? I bet it is lower than many think possible... even now if it does take a couple more hits. We should play again soon Jin, I miss the hunt... and its been a while for me... but I am diving back in. I may need some target practice before we play again. Counselors need nothing. Learn to play little clod... maybe one day you will grow up into a medium sized clod.
  8. Yes, they know the mechanics better than the rest of us... but nowhere was it stated that they were trying to kill him all 75 times either. It was 1 in 75 matches, but I don't think they considered that all 75 matches would have a kill attempt in them... Little did they know that many players would literally dedicate themselves to killing Jason and absolutely nothing else. 1 in 15 technically is not a rarity, but if they could ever come close to this with some balance adjustments, this would be a happy median for players on both sides of the argument I think... A bit of a challenge is not too much to ask after all... It is not much of a challenge right now from what I see. I got the game in Oct 2017... Meat shielding worked back then, block was more responsive... but other than that, combat stance has not changed... it was always a bit wonky.
  9. I am not the selfish one here... that would be you, demanding that someone do as you tell them... The very definition of selfish behavior. My analogies were not poor at all... you just didn't like them. If a player grabs the sweater and does not want to use it to kill Jason, sorry about your luck... try again next match... I have been screamed at in various languages and levels of rudeness for not giving up a pocket knife to sweater girl so they have a better chance at killing Jason... Instead, I used it on a trap and got the cops called so EVERYONE could escape if they could make it to the exit... But I am the asshole?... I am selfish?... Your own words point to you being the selfish one here, not me. Perhaps you should google the meaning of selfish... you may find a picture of yourself there. As to your example above... The driver of the car would have final say on what is played on the radio, and who sits where and literally anything else that happens in the car... If someone wants to be a dick like that in a car, it is the driver that needs to pull over and boot them the fuck out of the car... Calling "shotgun" does not mean you get to sit where you want, that is up to the driver. Talk about poor analogies... this one takes the cake and has NOTHING to do with what we are talking about as the DRIVER can very well tell ANYONE in THEIR frickin' car what to do, or they do not get to stay in the car... do they?... If they do not like the driver's "rules" for getting a ride in their car... EVERYONE is welcome to walk. We are talking about playing a game... You do not get to be in charge, I do not get to be in charge... no one really gets to be in charge unless the other players are willing to do what that person says... and if they do not want to follow your orders, then tough nugums. Also... I am not the one that needs to "git gud" apparently... I do very well for myself in this game already. Perhaps you should "git gud" at just one other aspect of the game other than trying to kill Jason... then you would not have to cry so much when someone else has to go for the sweater because they found nothing worthwhile in ANY drawers, or campsites, or anywhere else for that matter... Maybe you should offer them a trade for the sweater... a pocket knife? a med spray?... something would be nice instead of expecting someone else to do your bidding with ZERO incentive. Being polite and asking does work more often than not... so long as you were not an asshole to that player earlier... If that is the case... good luck getting that player to help you in any way. My whole point is... You do not get to tell others how to play... Thinking that I am wrong about this would make you an asshole... Telling me to "git gud" when I was never the player doing this might even confirm this... Calling me a "dick" and "selfish" solidifies it... I don't take the sweater for no reason... but neither would I ever bitch someone out for taking it and not wanting to help with a Jason kill. that is THEIR choice to make, not mine and certainly not yours. I got news for you... I actually play for the team, even when EVERYONE else in a match does not... But I am a dick am I?... I am selfish am I?... The asshole in this conversation has truly revealed himself.
  10. You know where your own posts are. Exactly where did I ever say anyone does not agree with me is a troll or stupid?... I dare you to find an instance of me calling anyone a troll or stupid in which it was undeserved... I can think of one instance with @Siph in which I was absolutely wrong and apologized to her... But neither did I directly call her stupid and never called her a troll. But unlike you Mr. Man... I can admit when I am wrong. Where exactly was I wrong?... You have not addressed this. Because you do not agree with me does not make you right either... SHOW ME where I am wrong so I can correct myself as I have the intelligence to do so when presented with facts that contradict my view on ANYTHING. I think you are missing the point. Not every match even has an attempt on Jason's unlife… But when players actually try to kill Jason, they are doing it quite often... and quite often is FAR from rare or difficult if an attempt is actually made. This is the point here... and you are still missing it. This game promotes teamwork to accomplish anything... a lone wolf might escape, but with six other players doing nothing... it is highly unlikely this will happen. It takes two players working together at minimum to kill Jason for a reason... and players that do this have a much higher success rate than just trying to escape. An entire lobby of counselors working together and pushing objectives is going to leave any Jason player with a low kill count... If you can count how many players fit into one car, you will discover that is half of the possible kills presented to the Jason player... One car and half the lobby escapes... it just requires a bit of teamwork... A lack of teamwork will get the entire lobby killed... Just like in ANY other game, teamwork will lead to victory, particularly against a team that cannot work together... and Jason has no one on his team (I will not count "teamers" here as this is not the point)… He is the one killer against seven potential victims... 8 if Tommy is called... and one against seven requires some advantages to even stand a chance to come out on top... Hence, the asymmetrical balance in Jason's favor... You are welcome to try and point out how I am wrong here too. Maybe one day, you might actually succeed in finding something I said to be incorrect... Its not like it has not happened before, I never claimed to be perfect... But it sure as shit is not in this post. I am not the one crying here.. take a look in the mirror. You are giving Canadians a bad name. Some players would like to see the original vision of "The Jason kill should be difficult and rare to see" implemented... How is it whining to want something to actually be a challenge?... Once again, your utter lack of logic astounds me... but I am not surprised at all. I can see why Matt might take this the wrong way with players ganging up on him... but then again, that is how it feels when every match you play as Jason is against a kill squad. A kill squad changes the entire dynamic of the match for Jason... Why has no one asked him to play as part of a kill squad instead of everyone just trying to kill him?... It is the success rate of the kill squads against various Jason players we are talking about here... Not the success of ANY kill squad against ANY one Jason player... that would skew the numbers... Just as using matches with no attempt on Jason's life to determine how "rare" the Jason kill is would skew the numbers... It is all about how common it is when players actually attempt it. I have been playing against some good kill squads frequently... by my own choice as I invite them into my group. I do not even keep track of how many times I die as Jason against these players... I only keep track of how many games against these particular players that I actually survive between being killed as Jason. I would like to see Gun play with forum and other community members too... Not the community against them, but working with them. It should not be the community against Gun... well, depending on who is playing Jason that round anyway... But if more than one person from Gun was playing in such a match, then it will never be Gun against the community... It would be counselors vs Jason... as it should be. This game promotes teamwork... us vs them is the wrong way to go about it. If they were playing with a kill squad in every match perhaps they would see what people here are talking about... A night with a kill squad always sees many Jason deaths.
  11. Not sure how you got that out of what I said... When a player messes up on the gas... which car do you go for?... or do you go for the boat or the car?... If they mess up on the battery, which car do you go for?... If there is only one car, and you have not smashed a power box... then this would be the only way to be sure where a player that screwed up on the repair actually is, considering there is only one car and a boat instead of two cars. So yes... VERY situational... particularly when considering you have no idea who is doing the repair unless there is only one counselor left... and if you don't know who is doing it, you have no idea if they will be finished the repair or not before you can morph there (considering you even morphed to the right spot)… and sneak up behind them... If this was not situational, it would literally be happening several times in every single match EVER played.... and it is not. Also... counselors looting the cabins at the start of the match is also situational. There are actually counselors who forego speed looting in favor of the part they found before even opening a drawer... This is the ONLY way to get the VERY situational two cars and six counselors escaping before Jason gets his first shift... It is rare, but it happens. Catching a counselor while speed looting at the start of the match is VERY situational. You have no stalk at this point, neither do you have shift... If they see you, they will normally run at this point if they have a brain... Catching, let alone actually killing a counselor at the start of the match while speed looting is VERY situational... or, once again... it would be happening in every single match every played... and it is not. Mistakes can be punished, but only if you morph to the right spot... and are actually quick enough to do anything about it. A counselor screwing up a repair has to worry about Jason showing up to give chase... but even that is not guaranteed. If Jason has no morph active at the time and is not nearby, he is not showing up... If Jason guesses wrong, he is not showing up. Jason's music only indicates he is in the area... you literally have no idea where in the area he is unless you see him. Stealth counselors are very useful despite what others say about them... But stealth will NEVER help you if Jason morphs nearby and sees you.... and if you are in his line of sight, or give off a sound ping that is obviously close enough that you should be glowing in sense but are not glowing... then sense avoidance perks are of no use either. Stealth AND sense avoidance are only useful if you can keep your distance from Jason. Neither are a guarantee you will not be found, and neither should they be. Smart counselors sure... but you have a great many counselors that think its smart to not open windows or lock doors, and rely on hitting Jason for extra stamina to prolong the chase... which also brings on rage early. ALL of these hits add up. Too many players do not even consider how to avoid rage... and strike Jason at every opportunity, leaving everyone else that is still alive in game after them to deal with early rage... I do very well without hitting Jason unless it is to save another player from his grip... and after Jason is done chasing me, whether he killed me or morphed away to deal with something else... he is no closer to rage than the default timer has given him. If everyone played like me, you would never even see a Jason in rage before halfway into the match or more... Where are all these smart players you speak of?... I still see many players wanting to fight Jason, whether in a group or one on one. Not every Jason, only the +Stalk should get this buff?... That would be the variant that would be WAY too overpowered with this buff... and if +stalk is altered, then neutral and -Stalk would remain the same? How does that even make sense?... A +Stalk Jason would be able to spend more than half the match in rage with this buff... which by definition makes it too over powered. As the game is now, once stalk is active, players already have to worry about Jason being around every corner. This behavior usually leads to other players getting killed... not the player that was not opening windows and locking doors... At least, that is how I see it play out from spectate after escaping or dying early. Jason is supposed to be overpowered... Asymetrical balance and all that. If players do nothing... or do nothing but beat on Jason... then yes, they will all die. Teamwork is your friend in this game... but teamwork is not a guarantee of survival either. You have to work for it. I find it funny to see people complain about dying as a counselor and demanding Jason be nerfed into the ground... again... Escapes have to be worked for, if you can't do the work, then you should be dying. If you see the car fixed AND the phone fixed later in the game all the time, then you must escape quite often. Why exactly do you complain about the game's balance? Do you think you should escape in every match? It sounds to me like people need to learn to work together as counselors like they are supposed to. This game promotes teamwork and punishes a lack of teamwork. Even two players working together can make Jason struggle to get more than a hand full of kills... One player fixing a car and getting it going can EASILY pick up three other counselors and escape with half the lobby... and you think it is Jason players that should learn to play? I check the number of players online on steam quite often... the numbers never dropped... They were between 300 and 400 for quite some time before the rage buff and for some time after it was implemented... Then came some sales, and the numbers went up... Which SEVERELY contradicts your statement here... Fortunately, Matt has stated that the rage buff is not going anywhere... so once again... deal with it. It was originally supposed to be 1 in 75 matches... But not every match even has an attempt to kill Jason either... But I think you have the right idea here... 15 or 20 tries to get one kill would definitely make players feel like they accomplished something... As it stands now... 9 out of 10 is not an accomplishment and never will be. Happy we have a game like this... sure. You don't need to be happy that you were killed in a game... it happens in literally every video game. Players of a game like this simply need to accept the fact that they are not going to survive every match... and a skilled player is still lucky to survive 50% of the time. We all die a lot in this game... Dying in a game like this and complaining about it is literally whining. This game is not for everyone... some people just cannot handle dying in a game... and those types of players should move on to things that will not frustrate them so much... like checkers... or coloring books.
  12. Complaining about a slashing Jason is literally saying they should not slash... Listening to one's opponent's orders is detrimental to one's chances to actually "win". Letting other players boss you around in a match is detrimental as well... Who put that person in charge in the first place?... How is it they know what's best for you to do? Teamwork is a thing, and is very important in this game... But teamwork does not require someone ordering others about. I for one do not respond well to orders, particularly not when given to me by strangers... let alone the person signing my paycheque... and if they get rude about it, I assure you... I can get far ruder than they can... I just never get rude first. There are already enough assholes in the world. Some players need to realize that asking politely actually works sometimes... shouting orders at people is not going to go well for them... and if the player does not want to do what they want them too, then they need to accept that they are not the boss... And even if they were "the boss"... sometimes, that person can easily find another job working for someone who is not an asshole... Skilled labor has its perks... this is one of them. Not anymore than someone taking a pocket knife for themselves and not handing it over when you order them to so you can use it for something else. Not any more than someone finding a med spray for themselves and not handing it over when ordered to because you need it for yourself. Not anymore than someone finding a weapon and not handing it over when ordered to because you wanted to use it for yourself... Not any more than someone not giving up their seat in a vehicle because they were ordered to because you wanted a ride... are you seeing a pattern here... I am. If a player grabs ANYTHING... and you tell them what they HAVE TO do with it... Make no mistake... YOU are the entitled snowflake. You do not get to tell other people how to play this, or any other game... and believing that you do have this right makes you the snowflake, not the other person... Calling someone a dick because you didn't get your way also makes you an entitled snowflake... Don't try to justify shit behavior... it will not go well for you. Yes, I have had many players approach me politely to ask for help when I respawn as Tommy... or when I have been the final girl to grab the sweater for the kill. Some of these same players were EXTREMELY rude to other players (which happen to be the friends I am playing with) in that same match, or a previous match... or even on a previous night and I just remember them and what they did last time... I have a VERY good memory... I am what some people call "an unforgiving prick"... And I learned to be unforgiving because I was once too forgiving. People do not change, they just become more of what they actually are... and forgiveness is a license for escalation. I have lived long enough, and known many people way more than long enough to have learned this the hard way... and I am not one for repeating mistakes. But, I also run into many players (and people in general) that are not assholes. I may be an unforgiving prick in the opinion of literally every asshole I have ever had to deal with more than once in my life... people do tend to get upset when you don't give them a second chance to screw you over... But if someone who has not yet proven to be an asshole can be polite, and ask me for help... I feel compelled to help them... By polite... I don't mean "please" and "thank you"... I mean, NOT being an asshole... to me... or to anyone else. When an asshole calls me (or anyone else) an asshole for not wanting to do what they want me (or anyone else) to do... to the rest of the world (or at least those people with actual brains in their heads), the real asshole is made apparent... and I doubt these same assholes would EVER feel compelled to help someone just because they asked for help... unless it was already in line with what they wanted to do for themselves anyway. Yes... even an asshole can be polite at times... But if I already know them to be an asshole from a previous encounter... they get no help from me. But neither do I go out of my way to screw over what they are doing either... Unless they have tried doing the same to me or my friends in the past... then all bets are off. I am now wondering if I have beat my own record on the use of the word asshole in one post. And yes... I have actually had players tell me... "You better frickin' help us kill Jason"... or words to a similar effect... I get a good laugh out of these idiots that think they can order people around. I do play with a couple of damned good Jason hunters now and again... and they are some of the most polite people you could ever meet. Yet still, some people will grab the sweater and run away giggling, or don't bother to help as Tommy... Non of us get rude with these people, we simply try again in the next match... Its not like a match with no attempt to kill Jason actually counts towards their ratio of Jason kills vs failed attempts... To be included in this ratio... for success or failure... and attempt actually has to be made. A bit of a drawn out answer... but literally everything is more complicated than most people think. Also... boat escapes are my favored way out of camp whenever possible as well... they are always worth a shot. I almost never instigate a hunt for Jason... I prefer escaping with as many other counselors as possible... or at least making escape possible for as many others that can get away. I try to contribute as much as possible to the team in any match I play. Due to rampant complaints of "teaming"... this will never happen... and needs to stay that way. If it ever was put in game, stalk would need to remove him from spectate at the very least. For honest players... this would make spectating much more fun... its too bad there are so many dishonest players out there to ruin it for everyone else. You can, however, watch Jason from spectate in private matches... if you can convince your friends to play private matches. Most of my friends are not used to team killing and do not like private matches because of this... Not because some purposefully kill other players... but because they have a hell of a time knocking another player free of Jason's grip without killing the player in his grip... So I rarely get into private matches... even when I have a full lobby of friends... Either way, I leave it for the group to make decisions that affect the group.
  13. The situations you speak of are VERY situational. Stalk is indeed HEAVILY reliant on sense... Literally every video you see of stalk kills are done with heavy usage of sense. Over hundreds of games, someone could put together a video of stalk kills that did not use sense at all... but in reality, most of their stalk kills WILL be heavily reliant on sense. Sure you can luck out and notice someone repairing something and get into stalk and come up behind them... but exactly how often does this happen?... In almost 700 matches as Jason I can remember being able to sneak up on a lone counselor repairing something like you describe about 3 times... Sure you can walk into a cabin in stalk... but without the counselor giving off sound pings or you actually seeing them through a window (which also leaves them open to seeing you and negates stalk)... you have no idea where they are in that cabin... Being able to wander around the entire cabin in stalk to look for them while in stalk is WAY too much of a buff. Do the math... How long is the recharge on stalk before rage?... How long are you suggesting stalk lasts for when moving?... Without even doing the math myself I can plainly see that this would leave Jason players in stalk for WAY too much of the match while retaining mobility... and then subtract how much less stalk takes for recharge in rage... and rage can be brought on VERY early in a match. Stealth works fine for those with the patience (very few players have any patience towards this and need to run around like chickens with their heads cut off)… and the knowledge of how it works... Many players have no idea how it works, and think it should make them super powered ninjas instead of the teenage camp counselors (who have ZERO training in combat and stealth techniques). Sense spamming is the only thing that keeps sense avoidance perks from turning counselors into super powered ninjas... Jason actually needs a chance to find them while they have a chance to not be found... Balance and all that. Any nerf to sense spamming is also a HUGE nerf to stalk. Also... players that think they should be able to run around in complete silence (no sound pings) are not thinking... To be stealthy, patience and slower movements are necessary... Not even a super powered Ninja can run around silently... yet Tommy can. Staying as far away as possible from whoever you do not want to see you is another actual requirement for stealth to be "stealthy"... Some players actually think sense avoidance perks should leave them completely unnoticed as they run around in front of Jason in full view of him... which is beyond ridiculous. Also too much of a buff. Tommy was never the problem... getting the mask off so easily is the problem... And the devs have already stated that the power boxes will NEVER be shown for Jason... and neither should they be shown for counselors... But if they are shown for one side, they should be shown for the other side as well... Balance. Buffing stalk to not burn down while moving for that long DOES leave Jason players able to be in stalk for way more of the match than you would ever want to see them in stalk for when playing a counselor... As it is, stalk is Jason's most powerful ability... and is even more powerful when used in conjunction with sense, morph and shift... in that order. Using sense to see a counselor allows you to morph ahead of them and shift back at them, while using sense to actually be able to see them, or you will not be catching them at all... Trees, bushes, rocks, cabins... and generally anything that blocks your view outside of sense will leave it in the hands of blind luck whether or not you could even find them without sense... This is almost a guaranteed kill on even the best Vanessa players out there... barring a pocket knife of course... and there are only so many of those in a match. Stalking is a game of patience when not morphing ahead of someone you see in sense and shifting back at them... and needs to stay that way.
  14. There is a bug that happens with the mic that has been around for a long time that causes this. It does not happen to everyone, but it happens... and it happens to me too. Although it is not consistent in leaving me voiceless in game, you can never be muted at a good time with this bug... On PC at least, turning off push to talk actually fixes this. I have had no issues with my mic while leaving push to talk off... but if I turn it back on, the same crap happens again. So if you don't mind leaving your mic open... this has a work around at least. Not sure if this works on consoles or not. Also... welcome to the forums.
  15. Fun fact for you... when players are saying the opposite of what everyone else is seeing, chances are, they are full of shit. Being I am actually an honest person and just call it like I see it... there are more than enough people seeing the same things I am for me to know who is full of shit (not just on this platform)... I fully understand how situational everything is... but when some people are stating the polar opposite of what is actually happening consistently for so many... I tend to take the word of the honest few. There will always be more crybabies than not... and at this time in history, there are WAY more crybabies than every before. Some of these things they say I can see being consistent for some of these people IF every single match they have ever played was with lobbies full of do nothing and completely incompetent players... and they took absolutely no time to learn any other aspect of this game other than beating on Jason... and never even tried to use dodge... Then, and ONLY then... maybe... and if that is the case... and I am not part of the "git gud" community... but they need to git gud. Another fun fact for you... the rage buff made Jason even easier to kill. Reasons for this have been stated MANY times already so I won't bore you with more facts than you can handle. Many players just do not know this... and if they choose not to look into these things for themselves, then that is on them. After speaking with MANY players that came here to complain about the rage buff it was made clear by MANY of them that they were the ones using Jason as a piñata and wished for this behavior to continue... all of these conversations that happened on these forums are still there and easy to find... Listening to the people that were responsible for causing the issue that the buff was put into place to prevent is counter productive. Another fun fact... Matt also said in a recent stream that the rage buff is not going anywhere... But adjustments may yet be made. Face it, piñata parties are a thing of the past and are going to stay that way... If so many people think Jason is invulnerable in rage, then why do they insist on bringing it on quick by beating on him for shits and giggles?... Sounds to me like this is just the idiots that liked to use Jason as a piñata making the game more difficult for EVERYBODY ELSE that is still in the game. Indeed... and here are some more fun facts... just for you. It is MUCH harder to find honest people than it is to find people who are full of shit... dishonest people quickly become apparent through even a short conversation with a few simple questions about the subject.... And crybabies will be crybabies... Listening to crybabies is the wrong way to go... for ANYTHING. The devs vision of this game is simple.... ASYMETRICAL horror survival game... The killer is supposed to be overpowered, but the potential victims are just that... "Potential"... With the concept of an overpowered killer, the potential victims need to work together to survive, and not all of them will survive... in general. Sometimes, all of them will die... and other times all of them will escape... and everything in between. I think they were going with a 5 out of 8 as an average... If you understand how averages actually work... the number of games I have seen with Jason players getting zero kills alone would be enough to bring the average down to 6 even with all of these people saying every game they see is 8 of 8. There is no horror if no one is dying... There is no fear of a killer that is being used as a pinata for ANY length of time... There is no slasher in the slasher game if no one gets slashed... and very little fear of dying at all if 4 or more players are escaping in EVERY match... If you cannot do math... 4 is half of 8 of Jason's possible victims... and you can take four players out in one car. If there is zero concern for one's player, then how can it be a horror game?... People complaining about the rage buff are showing their brand new fear for Jason instead of their utter lack of fear AND respect for him. It did its job, whether others can see this or not. I just happen to like the whole "asymmetrical balance" thing... It is different. This game, like any other, is simply not for everyone... Players that cannot handle dying a lot in a game will not like this game, or the balance the devs are going for... and there is only one reason for that. We ALL die a lot in this game... some of us escape far more than others, but everyone manages to escape at some point... Out of ten matches you play... how many do you survive?... Take your next ten matches and keep track... and I will give you my own average. Yes, it was. Yes... you have said that... and you have also said in the past that you were one of the people using Jason as a piñata... and again... Why exactly should the opinions of the people that were the cause of the issue that the buff was put in to deal with matter at all?... Everyone knows exactly why they are complaining... and when you are complaining about anything put in place to prevent the behavior you are responsible for... you will find it falling on deaf ears... unless it is a fool doing the listening. I still have met VERY few players in game with an actual complaint about the rage buff. But I have talked to a few now. Indeed... such a claim should be backed up with an actual count... and compared to the ratio of the toxic members of the community vs those with some rationality... I bet the numbers are identical... Quick play in this game can be one of the more toxic places you can visit on the internet... and that is where this lovely multi platform community all came from... But, good and bad in every group... that is just the way it is. This post is getting long though... I'll be back... "soon".
