  1. I know they weren't really happy with how their original Paranoia-attempt played out. It might be worth revisiting and rebranding though. Could be a digital only five dollar / Euros / pounds title completely detached from F13 if the general concept was a supernatural, disguised killer blending in amidst a group fighting for survival. They might even be able to stick with the Paranoia-title.

    This game was a disaster.

    You're right. Nothing says manly manhood like people "accidently" hitting friendlies with twenty baseball bat hits to the dome until they collapse in a puddle of bloody. That's why it happens every day in the army, in the police and in all those manly places. I'm so happy me and my friends can join each other in private Matches, clubbing each other with our big baseball bats while Jason watches US, machete in Handys. Always feels so alpha.

    We're Still Here

    My PS 4 runs on guinea pig related Power. They run on a treadmill, they won't generate high enough voltage to fry the console with their little legs. No worries.

    We're Still Here

    Happy for at least some positivity in dire times. I haven't played as much as I did at the height of my enthusiasm for this game, but I'll always be back until somebody switches off the lights.
  5. I had at least two occasions where players got Jason for two games in a row. I definetly felt like rng-ing Jason more often than before.
  6. Wayne Newton, first Dankeschön-scammer in history. I, like my Dankeschöns, am authentic and made in Germany. All Dankeschöns come with a TB-Seal-of-approval.
  7. Don't fall for this guy. He's a fraud. It's spelled Dankeschön. And you get them from me. $ 4,499.99 is the price. I only had second hand experience. Somebody I played with got accused of being a homewrecker by some people. It would be a long story with loads of details, to cut it short: there were no grounds for such accusations. It was major unneccesary drama. It got sad because people got really hurtful and shitty about it aswell.

    The future of SP challenges

    Well, the movies still exist...;) I like the SP challenges and I think they are done well enough. But I don't see them as anything that will prolong the game's life tbh.
  9. I have rolled quite a few legendaries, none of the really great ones. I was particularly bummed out by a legendary slugger perk with a 7 (!!!) % negative to your stun chance. How is it a legendary perk with a grey-perk-level negative? I would probably go with OPs Vanessa combination, maybe switching Scout with either Marathon or Restful for a more "kitey" build.

    New update ruined the Game

    I'd say the reaction is more like touching a hotplate, burning yourself & than saying: I hate hotplates & am afraid of them. Ideally, memory of experiences will help you make proper usage of certain thingd. Like using a hotplate to cook and using Jason's new grab differently than the old one. My jury is still out on the update as a whole, but the cutscenes for SP challenges should be skippable. Those are no 10 second clips like the MP opening and they are annoying to watch when you repeat challenges.

    PSA: Update will not drop on 5/26

    Sir, you are essentially and factually right about everything you say. I humbly yield any argument on my behalf and look forward to the update of the engine and everything that will follow come Thor's day. Regards Mr. Bjarnason All that aside, some people are going at great lengths to accuse Gun Media of certain things in this (and many other) thread(s). Shifty is only the latest victim in this. There's quite a lot of people trying to defend him, which may be the reason why the discussion is still ongoing.

    PSA: Update will not drop on 5/26

    Well, he actually stated they are not going to release the update on May 26th. Isn't this a holiday weekend in the US? It might relate to that, not them generally not working on weekends. Anyway, glad to see this coming out this week. It has been quite the wait.

    Daytime maps

    There are kills in broad daylight, but most of those are Jason appearing out of nowhere and killing people swiftly, almost one hundred percent of the time without them realizing what hit them. This is probably why daylight maps would be okay for offline play. I remember two actual daylight chases from the movies, the odd-man-out paintball guy who tried to run from Jason in VI and the cop in II who actually chased Jason. Plus the game, while inspired by movies, is not a complete movie. It's a climax of a movie, the remaining survivors know Jason is out there to get them and they try to scratch, claw and dance their way to an escape. No F13 climax takes plays in broad daylight.

    Today/Tomorrow's Thursday!

    I think he meant the PS4 system update.
  15. I had a session with friends yesterday on PS4. While the most glaring issue wasn't an in-game-bug, we had boatloads of timed-out sessions and hosts quitting games. And it was really annoying. We didn't play/complete many games, but the following things happened within five or so actual games: 1. I froze up as a counselor at one point after tanking a trap at the completed four seater. Couldn't interact with objects or use items afterwards, I was just able to run and hit. 2. One of my friends couldn't drop the gas can at one point. 3. We got an unmasked Jason down to his knees and he started sliding around, one of my friends who was Tommy did get the x-prompt but the animation wouldn't trigger. Those are not only bugs, but actual gamebreakers imo. Especially since the freeze up bug can happen to Jason aswell, essentially taking one side out of the game entirely.

    Mixed Feelings for the Devs

    There was a time where the game developers were called frauds and thieves in this forums. That was way too much imo. However, there are legitimate gripes with the game, often brought-up in well-written posts. A majority of critics can appreciate steps into the - subjectively - right direction like January's update. A big majority appreciates the new and improved communication. You'll always have forum posters bringing up their agenda in every freaking post or not being able to utter thoughts in a civilized manner, though.
  17. This may sound stupid and besides the point, but I just thought if an ability could be enlisted to certain counselors (trinken preferably low-stamina-and-speed ones) to be able to hit (and "chance"-stun) Jason. Maybe make it animation bound or timing based. As long as there's a hole in the door, they could be hitting with the butt-end of a weapon or poke at him. ((Dmg through intact doors has to go, though, imo))

    It hard to be excited

    I love that term and I think it's an easy homerun. I'm going to use it whenever I talk about DBD killers. That being said, I enjoyed DbD a bit and I can see where it excels, but I also see where it disappoints and underwhelms. I would still say F13 has far more replay value for me than DbD. Everything is subjective indeed, but trying to argue with DBDs pseudo killer variety is a very shaky foundation to construct an objective advantage for DBD. In regards to the topic: I also agree that it is hard to get hyped for the update. SP challenges looks like fun, Victoria is a cool addition. But the wait seems endless. Servers for consoles, if they are ever even to come, are still million miles away. Salt mines seem a poor workaround that will - in my pov - backfire horribly. There are no words on some promised content, which is partly understandable, but still sucks. There is still the disappointment on the Paranoia-fiasco. It leaves a weird feeling aswell that "all resources were needed for the engine update" (paraphrasing) was followed by content-announcements on a weekly base. I can of course only speak for myself, bur this seems contradictory, half-assed and worrying. I enjoyed the updates so far, but the time between those seems so eternal. Car rubberbanding, Jason freeze, shitty Windows have existed within the game for ridiculously long. It took three months to refine Jason's grab. The game is in a decent state for most who still play, but it's impossible to keep the hype going with those long waiting times.
  20. AAA or Triple A means big budget, first and foremost. Games have big developement studios and even bigger publishers. I agree that would have never been made in a Triple A environment, so I think a small studio despite its shortcomings is still the best we could ever hope for.

    Does Jason Really Die In The Game?

    It is literally titled "Jason defeated", but the badge and Achievement claim for it to be a kill. I wondered about it myself.

    Complete Loss of Objectivity

    1. I disagree on that. According to this forum there are people with LFGs on XBox who don't allow spawn killing. There are numerous people who want people to not use emotes. People who say dancing should be taken out of the game. I wouldn't call any of these people cheaters. Some will argue dancing is a troll thing, but I'd say here's where the problems start. [2.] Somebody not doing objectives is not against the rules. It's even integrated in the game with low rep-skill-chars. [3.] This is more like a club everybody paid entrance for than the military though. You can't force people to dance. You can't force them to drink. This to me is what not doing objectives symbolizes. You SHOULD kick them out if they start urinating onto to bar and harrassing other guests. Trolling, griefing, insulting, exploiting is this part in my pov. I have my issues with the QP playerbase, and I also prefer a lobby to do objectives. But I can't agree that people who try to run Jason around, prefer bad repairers or may just be bad at the game should be exposed to kickvotes and I'm cynical enough to see it as common use of a system like that.

    Complete Loss of Objectivity

    This thread pretty much prooves why a voting system shouldn't be implemented. A lot of posts complain about speedlooting, low skilled players, lack of focus on objectives. And I don't like this way of playing either, but as long as people don't glitch or hurl verbal abuse at others, I wouldn't Quite some of the statements in this topic make it seem as if people would kickvote players just because those don't play the way they like. It would only take that long for people to get kicked for failing skill checks.
  24. Clever guys. Telling everyone the focus won't be on new content, then giving news updates every week in which there is a lot about adding new content. Very well rounded stats and the look's pretty much a homerun. Resembles Melissa, the character most associated with the trope within the franchise, quite well.
