    Not sure if its a glitch but

    I'll route this to the proper people. Thank you for the info.
  4. Yes, we are looking into a few things that might be causing this.

    Patch Notes - 11.16.18

    Thank you for the videos, I've forwarded them to the team. If the videos are yours, please don't remove them.

    Patch Notes - 11.16.18

    I mentioned this when we first tweeted out an opening for a Community Manager/Community Developer role, but my responsibilities here are growing. My current role is no longer specifically in Community Management, it's working with PR, and leading our marketing communications, community management, and customer service departments. Please understand that I know that community engagement hasn't been the best it could be, which is why we are taking steps to remedy the situation. We have a new Community Developer starting in a few short weeks - the first week of December - and they will be able to give the forums (and our other social outlets) the attention that they deserve. I've worked with this person before and I'm happy to be able to get their experience and work excellence into the team here at Gun. Our previous CS wasn't as good as it could be, so we reworked and expanded our in-house CS team in order to elevate our customer care abilities. CS currently has an average response time (during working hours) of less than an hour, which is an amazing feat given the two months they've been here. They are super on-the-ball and killing it. I am beyond proud of them. Unfortunately, and to the annoyance of my coworkers, I have not taken a vacation since I started here. Hopefully, that will change in 2019. To answer another question; no, this update was not planned to bring balance changes. This is the first update with Black Tower at the helm and, while we have planned for balance updates in the future, it seemed prudent to have their first update focus on some of the smaller QoL fixes. Letting them get their footing with leading the project before we start asking them to make larger/sweeping changes seems like a good idea.

    Patch Notes - 11.16.18

    Sorry for the lack of an ETA. It will not be rolling out this weekend.
  9. People who hack to access content they do not own get banned. It’s not instant, but it doesn’t typically take too long. The increase in emails and reports we are getting that say “I was banned for no reason” have nearly all been attributed to DLC access hacking. We double check and respond to each one of those emails. So, yeah, we’ve noticed an uptick in players using this Jason that shouldn’t be able to, as well as an increase in player bans.
  10. I’m not sure if I understand the request. Do you want to see your own perk loadout, or that of other counselors?
  11. Hello campers! Let’s welcome the spookiest time of year with a whole month’s of in-game events! Week 1 - 10/2 - 10/9: 1.3 XP - ENDED Week 2 - 10/9 - 10/15: 1.7 XP - ENDED Week 3 - 10/16 - 10/22: Details on 10/16 - LIVE Week 4 - 10/23 - 10/31: Details on 10/23 Special Event - 10/12 - 10/31: 13 Days of Voorhees! https://gleam.io/r1EMb/13-days-of-voorhees
  12. Dedicated Server Update 9/26 – All Platforms Fixed a search cancelling issue where a player could become stuck while cancelling out of a Quick Play match search Fixed an issue where server uptime could cause a handshake failure when connecting to a game server (this caused the "infinite connection" issue) Today's HotFix update should start going live for all players at approximately 4pm Eastern. Please keep in mind that the update may take a while to roll out to all players on all platforms. This hotfix represents the final update from IllFonic for Friday the 13th: The Game.
  13. This is game balance and not new content.
  14. The Ultimate Slasher Collector’s Edition was only released in North America. The Ultimate Slasher Edition should be available anywhere the original physical edition was.
  15. People who hack end up banned. They might be around for a bit, but it all ends up the same. I get lists of newly banned players every day. If playing as Savini Jason a few times is worth them losing the game, that’s their decision.
  16. Victoria, Single Player Challenges, Legendary Perks, New Outfit for Roy, Weapon swapping, Keybinding, J7 rebalance, new Jason ticket system... there were a lot of things finished and added to the game in the engine update when different groups had some downtime between working on things directly related to the engine update. The engine update touched every part of the game and things had to be checked by the teams that created the content. That includes people who are building assets. Your analogy doesn’t work here because it would be more like the entire McDonald’s interior is being renovated but some employees are still making food while they check over the old food and food prep hardware to make sure it works well in the renovated McDonald’s.
  17. A press release was sent out today in regards to a shift in development partners for Friday the 13th: The Game. Black Tower Studios will take the lead to work on bugs and continue improving the overall player experience. As such, now that work on Dedicated Servers is complete, IllFonic will transition away from development of Friday the 13th: The Game, while Black Tower Studios will be picking it up. Black Tower Studios have worked with IllFonic for over a year on content and maps for Friday the 13th: The Game, and we are confident in their ability to continue supporting the game. Examples include assisting in the creation of Pinehurst and Jarvis House maps. IllFonic will be moving on to different projects that are better suited to a full team. About Black Tower Studios: Black Tower Studios is located in Tokyo, Japan. Comprised of industry veterans from around the world, developers at Black Tower Studios have worked on a variety of AAA titles across multiple publishers.
  18. The answer to your question is in the original post.

    Your ban was for intentional bypass of anti-cheat measures.
