Well, I think I’ve reached the end of this road. Been away on vacation (not a Bears style vacay, but a real one) and came back to see the forums in a pretty sad state. Lots of desperation, frustration, and beating a horse that has become more of a rug than a corpse. Already seen some good folks leave and some get banned. At this stage, moving on to other things seems best. I no longer have a drive to keep investing time here at this juncture. That being said, I must say I’m humbled by amount of folks who took an interest in The Playbook thread, helped contribute to it, and made it a place people could go for some help getting a bit better at the game. I can hardly believe the number of views it has received and the amount of positive feedback it has garnered. Thank you all for taking an interest and providing input. @Kodiak thanks for putting it as a sticky in the General Discussion Forum for people to find. Just letting you know at this point I will no longer be updating it unless some unforeseen and unbelievable development occurs allowing new content to be added to the game. You can unhitch the boat from the dock and let is sink if you so choose. Thank you to all the good folks I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with over last year and then some. Glad to have made some new friends. Thanks for all the great laughs and games. @bewareofbears, @lHeartBreakerl, @AldermachXI, @Brigadius, @TheHansonGoons, @Tattooey, @Ghostboy20, @BrokenFattHardy, @Riot_Dame, @Risinggrave, and a slew of others that I'm sure I'm forgetting (unintentionally). I'll still be playing F13 on Xbox on occasion, but I don't think the forums have much left to hold my attention. Many of you know how to reach me so it's not goodbye, but rather change of venue. I also play quite a bit of Deep Rock Galactic on Xbone. Great indie-game with many new updates and an awesome Dev team. I'd highly recommend it if you want a change of pace. This meme reminds me of the forums and the game at the moment. Frankly, I don't want to hang around for the slow death of both. So I bid you all adieu and good luck. ~Alk
BeautyNumber2 posted a topic in Friday the 13th: The Game General DiscussionTook a break from the game and came back to it being more unplayable and laughable than ever. Here’s what happened in my grand homecoming match back to the game. As Jason, I turned off the power, trapped the phone three times, and trapped the box for people to call Tommy. Three of the four people I killed had pocket knives of course so I had to double kill those three, even tho I snatched them easily with strategy and shift+grab skill In the time it took to re-chase down and kill Vanessa and Chad of course, somewhere the remaining three counselors called Tommy and repaired the phone and called the cops. It’s getting to be where nothing Jason can do strategically can hinder the cops or Tommy being called. If people have the right perks they can kamikaze traps and end of unharmed. So instead of having three measly counselors to pick off—there should have only been one possible pocket knife remaining— yet three people were able to disarm/avoid three traps and end up unscathed. What an ideal and perfect scenario for these players. How the stars align every match these days for counselors! It’s always the best-case scenario. Four pocket knives found, plus Tommy’s and a buffet of health sprays So now I have to deal with Tommy who immediately comes after me and takes my mask off in ONE hit with a machete where otherwise I was hit only once previously with a wrench. Meanwhile across town... someone grabs the sweater so I know what’s going down. The remaining people were obviously communicating en masse in party chat while the rest of us in the lobby heard nothing. This irritation is another issue Anyway, so I morph to Deborah in the sweater who somehow has stamina for days and weeks and agility to avoid my grab like never before AND a pocket knife. Again, she has all the right perks and magically 4/5 people I pick up had pocket knives. So by the time I catch back up with her the remaining three are coming up ready to kill Jason. I morph away and they start hunting me. Jason is a complete joke now. Was I supposed to just stand there waiting for her to use the sweater and then kill me? No, I morphed away and the game instantly went from ridiculously unbalanced to an embarrassing joke. This is but a taste. So basically, when people with only a little knowledge of the game plays as the counselors together, all they have to do is utilize the built-in game mechanics to survive against incredible odds and nearly kill Jason. A skilled, high-level Jason who’s been playing for over a year on the other hand using his mechanics potentially struggles to kill counselors in a group or even individually if they have pocket knives or certain perks. Pocket knives make it so Jason has to re-catch counselors multiple times, and the over-availability of health sprays allows multiple targets to be blugened yet heal themselves sometimes twice or more if they have the right perks. How is this Friday the 13th again? Because if there’s a game based on the franchise this is not it. Counselors should have to outsmart Jason for a CHANCE to survive. Jason should not have to retreat to his shack and write about bullying on his Tumblr because every counselor he tried to kill conveniently had a pocket knife when he picked them up and health spray when he hacked at them. The original and ideal structure of this game—if it is supposed to be Friday the 13th— is that Jason is expected to kill all but one or two counselors. Those who survive do so by outsmarting and being resourceful and survive against the odds. Now, the game is the complete opposite: counselors are easily able to survive and only by their own misfortune do they die (getting spawn killed or by making multiple noises when repairing). Only by luck and absolute domination does Jason kill all the counselors (high level Jason vs newbs and bad players) Now we have the keys and gas in the same cabin and the battery next door. The fuse is in the first drawer in same house as the fuse box which someone spawned in. So again, how is this Friday the 13th? The player as Jason has to be up against a lobby of new players or mentally impaired players/little kids to get more than 4 or 5 kills. If the players are high level and/or skilled Jason is outmatched before it begins. That’s fucked up and incredibly foolish. I’ve given this game infinite chances at this point but it’s somewhere only gotten worse. How did the devs manage that? Well, they did. And before you even try it, no I didn’t search for a similar topic, no I don’t give a fuck about the rules, and yes I deleted the game from my system, never to be played again. I took a break from the game and came back but now I deleted the game. My brother also took his copy back to Target and got a store credit to buy another game. It’s not just me, there’s an entire movement of people who’ve had the game this whole year and are done with it. The empty promises, the lies about dedicated servers, the manipulative nerfing to appease new physical copy purchasers, the silence about game-compromising glitches. I’m done and the game is through. Over.
