  1. Hello Everybody, Last month, a community member named Shady had submitted a posting, asking for a counselor tier list and I thought I’d chime in with my two cents. A few months ago, I had posted some comments on this forum stating that I don’t believe that there’s a best overall counselor, however I do believe there’s a best counselor in each category. After playing the game for a while, I have modified my opinion. I now believe that there are two best overall counselors and two that deserve an honorable mention. I’m going to define each category, show the results of some polls I had posted, rank all the counselor from last and then go into details about my top four favorite counselors. Please be advised the ranking, categories, definitions, and all comments are my opinions only. Please feel free to disagree. Here are what I call the five categories of counselors and my definition of them: 1. The Mechanics: These are counselors who are good at repairing objectives. A counselor needs a six or higher score in repair to qualify for this role. 2. The Runners: These are counselors who are good at running. They excel at kiting and juking Jason. They're also good at delivering parts to objectives. To qualify for this role, a counselor needs a six or higher score in stamina. 3. The Defenders: These counselors are good at protecting mechanics while they repair objectives. A counselor needs a six or higher in luck to qualify for this role. 4. The Brawlers: These counselors are good at going toe to toe with Jason and knocking off his mask. To qualify for this role, a counselor needs a six or higher score in strength. 5. The Double Classes: These are counselors who can do double duty in the above categories. In order to qualify for this role, a counselor needs a six or higher in two or more of the following stats: repair, stamina, luck, and strength. A couple of months ago, I submitted several polls asking people who they think the best counselor in each category is. Here are the current results of those polls: 1. The Mechanics: Deborah Kim 2. The Runners: A tie between Vanessa Jones and Tiffany Cox 3: The Defenders: Vanessa Jones 4. The Brawlers: Brandon "Buggzy" Wilson 5. The Double Classes: Vanessa Jones My picks for the best counselor in each category are going to be somewhat different from the results of the polls. I will present my categorial picks but first I’m going to present my overall ranking of the counselors. As I said before, this list and all comments are my opinions only. Also, please be aware any counselor can be effective in the hands of a skilled player. Please note also that I’m going to judge each counselor by their natural stats without the inclusion of any perks. Now on to my list with my comment on each counselor. Please be aware that I’m going to start from the bottom and work my way up. 14. Shelly – In my opinion, Shelly is the worst counselor in the game. With a seven in strength, it seems like Shelly’s role would be that of a brawler, but there would be much better picks for that role like Adam or Fox. The rest of Shelly’s stats are either bad, mediocre or pointless for this type of character. For example, Shelly has an eight in stealth which I believe is useless for a brawler counselor. If you’re going toe to toe with Jason, what is high stealth going to do for you? I would pass on this counselor. 13. Eric – With a ten in repair, Eric’s role would be that of a mechanic. While he’s great at fixing objectives, his abysmally low stat of two in stamina makes him extremely vulnerable. If Jason finds him, Eric has a very low chance of escaping. I would choose a different counselor. 12. Deborah – I might catch some flak for this one. Deborah is very popular with other players and I do see her a lot in the public lobbies. I myself used to play Deborah quite a bit before moving on to other counselors. In my opinion, she’s the female version of Eric. She’s a little better than him but not by much. She’s practically got the same weakness as him. With a three in stamina, she’s going to have a hell of a time escaping from Jason if he finds her. Although she’s got a ten in repair, I don’t believe that means she’s a good counselor to play. I’m going to elaborate on this point, but first, I would recommend watching Slash N’Cast’s counselor re-ranking video on YouTube. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oXTIw8AMek. According to that video, having the max points in a stat isn’t always necessary. For example, Mitch’s repair stat of eight will sometimes give him three skill checks instead of the two Deborah would normally get, which wouldn't qualify as a meaningful difference in my opinion. Like I said, I used to play Deborah a lot and I used to think she was decent, but now my opinion of her has changed and I don't play her that much anymore. I would play a different counselor other than her. 11. Kenny – I consider Kenny to be the start of the mid-tier counselors. With straight fives in all stats, he’s not bad at anything, but he’s not good at anything either. The only reason I could see playing him is if you’re a beginning player who’s trying to figure out your style of play. Once you’ve figured that out, then you should switch to the counselor that best fits that style. Otherwise, I wouldn’t bother with Kenny. 10. Chad – I know I’m probably going to catch hell for this, but in my opinion, Chad is just a so-so defender. Yes, he’s got that perfect ten in luck. Yes, his weapons will rarely break and he can crawl through broken windows with barely a scratch, but unfortunately that’s his only real advantage. Like I said before, you don’t need a score of ten in a stat to be a good counselor. Victoria’s or Jenny’s score of eight for example would be more than sufficient to qualify as a good defender. Chad’s other good stat is a nine in speed, but I don’t believe that’s very beneficial for him because his stamina score of four handicaps him. He may be good at running short distances but long ones are going to present a challenge for him. He wouldn’t be my first pick as a defender. 9. Mitch – With a repair of eight, a composure of nine, and a stealth of six, Mitch is good at sneaking around and fixing objectives, but he wouldn’t be the best choice for this role. AJ, with her repair of seven, composure of seven, and stealth of ten would be a much better selection. I would pick her over Mitch. 8. Jenny – For all you no-fear Jenny fans, rejoice! I actually find her to be a decent counselor. With an eight in luck, her role would be that of a defender and with a stamina of five, she would at least have a passable chance of juking Jason if necessary and running to hotspots. Of course, she’s got that perfect ten in composure which allows her to keep her cool around Jason while whacking him with a baseball bat. That’s way better than Chad’s measly composure score of one. That and her stamina score are why I ranked her higher than Chad. 7. Tiffany – With a six in speed and a nine in stamina, Tiffany is a good choice if you want to kite and juke Jason, however I believe Vanessa with her speed of ten and stamina of nine would be a better option. Also, I think Tiffany’s stealth score of ten is a waste except in certain circumstances. Having high stealth might be good if you’re delivering parts to an objective, but you would have to jog not sprint if you don’t want Jason to detect you. Also, I don’t think stealth is going to help you too much if you’re going to be kiting and juking Jason. 6. Buggzy – In my opinion, Buggzy would be a good brawler but not an ideal one. He’s got that score of ten in strength so he’s great at demasking Jason, but Adam with his score of eight and Fox with her score of seven would be more than sufficient at that task. Also, Adam and Fox have a repair score of six so if killing Jason fails, they can easily repair objectives. With a repair score of one, Buggzy would be lousy at that. I have to admit that with a solid score of eight in both speed and stamina, Buggzy would make an excellent runner. However, if running and kiting Jason are your thing, I believe it would make more sense to pick Vanessa with her speed score of ten and stamina score of nine over Buggzy. 5. Victoria – In my opinion, Victoria would be the best defender. With a solid eight in luck, her weapons will last a long time. Although she’s not very fast with a speed score of four, her score of seven in stamina make up for it. Unlike Chad and Jenny, long distances wouldn’t present much of an issue with her. She would be my first pick for a defender. 4. AJ – If sneaking around the map and repairing objectives are your thing, then AJ is your girl. With a ten in stealth, a seven in composure, and a seven in repair, AJ’s got that fantastic ability to stay off of Jason’s radar while quickly repairing that phone box or installing that car battery. Although her other stats are either middling or bad, making her a mediocre runner and a lousy fighter, that’s okay. When playing AJ, you don’t want to outrun or fight Jason; you don’t want him to know that you even exist. AJ would be one of my top picks for a mechanic. 3. Adam – I believe Adam is the best male character. With an eight in strength and a seven in composure, he would make an excellent brawler while keeping his cool. If killing Jason doesn’t work out, he can easily fix objectives with a repair score of six. Adam would be one of my first picks for a brawler. 2. Vanessa – Without a doubt, Vanessa is the queen of running. With a score of ten in speed and nine in stamina, she can kite and juke Jason with ease. Not only are her speed and stamina great, but with a six in luck, she would also make a passable defender. Unlike other defenders, she’s got the speed and stamina to get to a hotspot in a hurry. Vanessa would be my top pick for a runner and one of my top picks for a defender. 1. Fox - I think Fox is a fantastic counselor and she is my main. With a score of seven in strength and a score of six in composure, she would make an excellent brawler while keeping a level head. Her repair score of six allows her to repair objectives fairly quickly and easily. Out of all the mechanics, she’s got the highest stamina score of five which gives her a decent chance of outrunning and juking Jason. That’s it for my overall ranking. As you can see from my list, my top three favorite counselors are Fox, Vanessa, and Adam. Before I do my final pick for each category, I’m going to engage in some gender discrimination and boot Adam from the list. The reason being is because he’s a male and he can’t don the sweater. For that reason, I almost always play female counselors. My picks for the best in each category would be: 1. The Mechanics: Fox 2. The Runners: Vanessa Jones 3: The Defenders: Vanessa Jones 4. The Brawlers: Fox 5. The Double Classes: A tie between Vanessa Jones and Fox. This would depend upon one’s playstyle. I would also have to give an honorable mention to AJ and Victoria. Although I would consider each of them to be single class counselors – AJ would be the mechanic; Victoria would be the defender – both of them shine in their respective fields and would be excellent selections. If I add them to the categorial picks, this is what it would look like: 1. The Mechanics: AJ Mason 2. The Runners: Vanessa Jones 3: The Defenders: Victoria Sterling 4. The Brawlers: Fox 5. The Double Classes: A tie between Vanessa Jones and Fox. This would depend upon one’s playstyle. So, there you have it. Let me say again that all comments in this post are my opinions only. This is in no way the definitive word on the counselors and a lot of people may disagree with my ranking. Please be aware that my opinions may change in the future just like it did with Deborah Kim. I used to think she was good, but now I don’t. Thank you for reading and peace out.
  2. I am reaching out to the grilling enthusiasts. The 4th of July is coming up, and I want to throw something new on the menu. Any suuggestions? I'm already doing beef sliders, barbecue chicken, hot dogs, smoked sausages, Cajun style catfish, beef and chicken kabobs, and crabs. To those that celebrate it, have a pleasant and safe Independence Day.
  3. I'm not a gamer at all, but I'm a big fan of the film series and I saw a bunch of YouTube videos of this game, and it looks like so much fun, so I'm looking to start. What do I need, equipment-wise? I'd be using my laptop and I have just installed Steam, but what kind of controllers or mics do you recommend? I'd prefer not to spend a bunch of money because I really see this as the only game I'd be playing.
  4. So I've been playing for a while now, and I've been saving every nickel and dime I've made in this game. After nearly reaching level 90, I've been able to save up over 100,000 CP for perk rolls. I've already rolled a bunch in the beginning and bought all the grab kills, but I've stopped spending altogether once I reached about level 40 and just saved. Now that I've got enough for 200 perks rolls, (not including cp I'll get back from selling perks), I need some advice. Should I spend it all at once? Or should I try to spend it incrementally? I know the perks are completely random, but is there some kinda strategy for approaching this to better the odds of getting key perks and epics? My initial plan was to decide on 29 perks that I absolutely want to keep out of the 45 available. Essentially, I'm eliminating 16 perks and leaving one free slot open to roll for a better version of a perk I'd want to keep. I know CP bonuses will be gone once I hit the level cap, so I'm trying to make the best of what I have.
  5. I don't play as Jason that often so I was wondering if someone could give me some help with a thing. As Jason I often find myself chasing a counselor around a table, couch or any piece of furniture that movie Jason would just throw across the room but seems to be game Jason arch-nemesis. So if anyone has any tips on how to deal with this please let me know. I have seen this happen to other Jason's so your advice would benefit a great many players. Thank you.
