Smashing a counselor's head on the power boxes is nice, but I was wondering if it could be possible to have this kill also destroying the power box in the process in a future patch, making it even more useful.
It seems you guys are working very hard to fix the game and to get things fixed faster you reach out to the community to report bugs. I feel if you want to fix the game from being broken you should make a new mode for players that will benefit everyone. The new mode should be Sandbox Dev Mode. An offline mode where you can load a map and control every aspect of how a game would load and start. You can load in idle characters and change to control whoever you want. You can reload the map on the fly and be able to do stuff. Maybe implement AI in the future so simulation. Of course have this mode reward no XP/CP but players could freely explore the map, learn what does what and where and experiment. They game should only load the stuff of the current engine builds and then we can see if problems can be replicated and essentially break the game a lot faster then with all the lobby waiting and reloading.
Just wanna say I love this game so far and I feel it has so much potential to become the best in it's genre. With updates and support I don't think this game will go any where. Here are some ideas of what I would love to happen in the future for this game: NEW ITEMS: Soda Can that replenishes 25% of your current stamina, and gives you a 25% overall stamina pool increase. Effect lasts for a couple of minutes. Relaxing Pills that make holding your breath last twice as long and lower down your overall fear meter. Effects last for a couple minutes. Beer that lowers the amount of damage you endure but increases stumbling chance. Will also delay being put into "crippling" movement state for 45 seconds when your health drops low enough. Effect lasts for a couple of minutes. Wooden Barrel Shield - Can be used to shield an ally from attacks or defend yourself from blows and can absorb up to three melee attacks from Jason. (two attacks if he is empowered in melee). Shield is immune to grabs from the front. Enter combat stance to use. (max of 1 per map) Backpack - When picked up, the counselor will wear it on their back and it will give you two extra item carrying slots. Sprint speed and stamina recharge speed will be reduced by 20%. (max of 1 per map) Bicycle - Cannot carry a Large Item while using. Speed is faster than the fastest Counselor. If Jason hits you or you get hit by a throwing knife while riding on bike, you will fall off and be instantly put in "crippled" movement state. Stamina does not recharge unless you sit still with bike. (max of 1 per map) Canoe - New way to escape via water but very slow. Will have to find an "Oar" on the map to use the canoe. Will not alert Jason if you board the canoe. Small Canoe icon can be seen by Jason on map. One counselor with one oar will have lower top end speed and harder traction. Two counselors with two oars will have increased top end speed and improved traction. Jason can tip over the canoe just like the boat. (max of 1 per map) TV that can be turned on to make some noise in some cabin's. Essentially new variety item skin for the radio. (max of 1 per map) NEW WEAPONS: Spear - Slow attack start but good range making it ideal for poking near windows or a door being broken down. Hammer - Slightly slower, smaller range but high stun chance. Oar - Decent range but very high break rate. (max of 2 per map) Taser - Similar to pocket knife but less stun on Jason and will not work on traps. Screw Driver - New variety item skin for the pocket knife. Ice Pick - New variety item skin for the pocket knife. Bow & Arrow - Large carrying item similar to beartrap. Must set arrow and then single shot use. Cricket Bat - Similar to baseball bat but less stun chance. Army Knife - Best durability weapon but shortest range. Can also be sacrificed to let one of Jason's traps go off. Nail Gun - Can be used to further upgrade a barricade to make it more sturdy or as a weak ranged weapon against Jason with limited ammo. New Game Lobby Customization Options: Game can now be set to 20 minutes, 25 minutes, or 30 minutes. Friendly Fire can now be turned off or on. Counselor Duplicates can be set to off or on. If set to off, duplicates of the same Counselor cannot be picked. Jason voice communication with counselor's can now be turned off or on. Counselor damage intake can now be set to Reduced, Normal, or Increased. Jason damage intake can now be set to Reduced, Normal, or Increased. Item Spawn for the map can now be set to Reduced, Normal, or Increased. Door Durability and Barricade can now be set to Reduced, Normal, or Increased. Weapon Durability can now be set to Reduced, Normal, or Increased. Perks can now be set to disabled or enabled. New Realism / Hardcore Mode: (New Game Mode for F13) Minimap for players on the bottom right is disabled You will not be able to tell who is dead or not when pulling up the player scoreboard (death screams in game will still be heard) Pulling up the map will not update what objectives have been complete or are currently in progress. Counselors can no longer check their map to find the location of Repair Parts that have been dropped. Music sound queue for Jason is disabled until you spot him or see him in your sights / screen visual radius Fog will shift in and out during certain areas making surroundings slightly more ambiguous. The closest power generator to the phone now needs to be ON or repaired in addition to the phone box in order to call the police. When counselors "stumble", they now lose 10% of their stamina. Counselors can no longer escape the main road exits with the car when driving in REVERSE, and must turn around and go forward with the car to successfully escape. The car now permanently breaks and cannot be used after FIVE times of Jason smashing the car. NEW Counselor Changes: Counselors Can now "Whisper" by pressing the Mouse Scroll Key button (or a separated key bind) ONLY during crouch. Whispering causes Jason to have to be a lot closer to hear Counselors talking. Whispering will not be picked up through radios and cannot be used to communicate with other counselors far on the map. Counselors can now hide in Bath Tubs or Close Shower Curtains in bathrooms. Showers can now be turned on inside in some Cabin's and this will create some noise similar to a radio, BUT with much less radius. It will simply light the cabin red if Jason is close enough. Counselors must now execute the prompted button key required if they are wielding a pocket knife and Jason grabs them to use it. Firecrackers now cause counselors to stumble and take a small bit of damage if they get too near. Firecrackers and Flare Guns are now friendly fire prone. Counselors can now disable "lock-on" on towards other counselors by pressing a specific key bind. Stumbling now causes counselors to lose 10% of their stamina. Shotgun blasts can now break windows. Shotgun blasts can now damage Jason or counselors if shot through windows. DOORS: Locked doors now take two hits to break for Jason instead of one hit. Locked doors can still be broken in one hit only if the Jason is empowered in "Destruction". NEW JASON CHANGES: Jason is now vulnerable to attacks while attacking a door. Jason is no longer completely immune to bear traps when blocking. Jason can no longer block firecrackers or flare guns. Jason now has one second and a half of charge time on his kill moves if he connects a grab on a counselor five seconds after using the "Shift" ability. Environmental kill moves are not affected by this charge time and can be done instantaneous if in proximity. Breaking 'opened' windows hit detection slightly improved to prevent some weapon swings to miss frequently. Extra furniture props can now be broken by entering a small cinematic sequence once performing the action button such as; big couches, giant bookshelves, giant tables, etc. (none of these are furniture that have items in them) Knocking on a locked door will now slightly increase fear of counselor's that are in the cabin. MELEE: Jason can now perform a swift attack with his weapon while he is "running" or speed walking by holding down the attack button for one second and then releasing. This attack recovers a few frames faster than the grab attack and has more range. (Jason will not come to a stop when using this attack and can continue to run or speed walk) THROWING KNIVES: Picking up throwing knives from the environment is now a bit faster and more efficient. (DEVS ADDED) Throwing knives can now be thrown at a window to break the glass. (DEVS ADDED) Throwing knives can no longer be blocked by counselors. Throwing knives can now headshot counselors. If at full health, a counselor will instantly become crippled. If less than full health, and counselor will be instantly killed by a headshot. Throwing knives aimed and thrown at a counselor's leg will drain 20% of their stamina upon impact. Throwing knives can now be thrown at a bear trap placed by a Counselor to set the trap off. TRAPS: Traps can no longer be stacked on top with each other. Traps can now be recovered or picked up on the map with a total of three extra to find. One of them will be in Jason's cabin to collect. New ability to place down a "fake" bait trap with just leaves. Jason will enter his usual "placing trap" animation but just put leaves instead but the sound effect will trick counselors. These fake leaf traps expire after 30 or 60 seconds and only two fake traps can be set out at the same time. Traps can now be set on boat docks. Traps can now be set in cabins. Traps that were not "triggered" can now be repicked up by Jason to place in a new position. SHIFT: Jason can now be hit out of or during Shift active frames. (this includes bear traps, shotgun, firecrackers, etc.) When Jason enters Shift, it now activates a brief distinct sound queue to alert nearby counselors. (this does not happen if Jason has Stalk active) MORPH: The selection point on the map where you choose to Morph is now more accurate when you teleport there as Jason. (DEVS ADDED) RAGE: Once Rage becomes active, all stun time on Jason is now reduced by half. Once Rage becomes active, Jason becomes invulnerable during Shift and it's active frames. Once Rage becomes active, Jason gets a slight movement speed increase when he enters Combat Stance. Once Rage becomes active, Jason's melee attacks recover faster when he is in Combat Stance. Once Rage becomes active, Jason can now walk while holding and aiming a throwing knife. CAR: Throwing knives can now be thrown at car tires to make them slightly increasingly difficult to drive. Car windows can now be broken and this will just allow throwing knives to be able to connect on a player in the corresponding seat. Jason can now manually hit and stop a car going in reverse by getting behind it and performing an "E" key action command when prompted as the icon appears. Counselors can no longer escape the main road exits with the car when driving in reverse, and must be going forward with the car to escape. JASON PART 7: "Grip Strength" ability in Strengths now removed. New strength ability now added called "Bleeding Lacerations". Bleeding Lacerations - Jason's melee weapon strikes with his machete now cause a "bleeding" effect on a successful non-blocked strike to a counselor. Bleeding effect causes a counselor's health to drain very slightly over time and immediately enter a "cripple" movement state for ten seconds. "Water Speed" ability in Strengths now removed. New strength ability now added called "Compact Flesh". Compact Flesh - All weapons that hit or are blocked by Jason have double break rate, effectively halving their overall durability.

New Perk - Hunter - Traps capture Counselors for twice as long. New Perk - Sharpshooter - Throwing knives now deal double damage. New Perk - Collector - No cinema action required for picking up a Throwing Knife. Just go near and tap action button to pick up instantly.

MATCH MAKING You can now select language preference when searching for public games. New key bind and option for "mute all" button added. New option to "report player" after a game has finished. Max of three reports per day allowed. Once a player receives enough negative reports, they will be placed in "low priority" match making system which will make them more likely to match with other users in "low priority". Players placed in low priority state receive half XP and CP until they complete a set number of games. TOMMY JARVIS: Tommy Jarvis does not pre-spawn on the map during the "intro movie" scene for the player until AFTER it is fully completed. The player who has been chosen to be Tommy Jarvis now receives a message: "You have been chosen to come back as Tommy. Press A to come back" with a 15 second timer attached. If the timer runs out, it will pass on to the next player. Tommy Jarvis can no longer reach "level 4 fear" where his screen becomes dark and he loses vision of the mini-map. If you are the last person to survive as Tommy Jarvis, you receive bonus XP. If you survive simultaneously with another final remaining counselor(s) via boat or car, you receive bonus XP. Each time you successfully help a survivor break free from Jason's grab, you receive small amount of bonus XP. Each time you heal a counselor, you receive an additional small amount of bonus XP. Killing or "betraying" a counselor is now -1000 points as Tommy Jarvis. JASON'S MASK: If a counselor escapes or survives the match with Jason's Mask in their inventory, all players receive bonus XP and CP. MINI INTRO CINEMA When the game starts, the player who has been selected to be Jason will have their Counselor selection "killed" by their Jason in the intro instead of it being the same guy 24/7. MOVIE SPECTATOR CINEMA MODE: When a player is dead or they survive, they can choose to enter movie cinema mode which will automatically follow the counselor(s) being chased by Jason. The camera will also shift between players and prioritize to those doing action themed events such as filling up cars with gas, installing batteries, propellers, repairing electricity, fighting Jason, etc. New camera angles that cover more space, screen size, and combination of camp camera when needed will also ensue and happen as fights and dramatic chase sequences occur. Just sit back, grab some popcorn and watch the action ensue as your team tries to survive the rest of the round. AFTER DYING OR SURVIVING A ROUND: Ability to roll perks, customize character clothes appearance, or equip / change load outs is also available to spectators that have survived or died while they wait for the remainder of the round. You now receive bonus 20 XP and 10 CP for each remaining minute you spectate until the match is complete. New camp cameras have been added increasing the total numbers of them on each map. Players can now type to each other with a text box while spectating. (only players who survived or died can see texts) The progression tab and badges can now be viewed while in spectating mode. QUITTING GAME / PENALTIES: If someone playing as a counselor leaves the game, their character will immediately drop all of their inventory and remain alive (idle) and available for Jason for scoring a kill if found. When someone leaves a game before dying or surviving, they will be rewarded with only half of the XP or CP that they accumulated for that game. Players now have the option to reconnect to a game that they left if it is still running. "Mother's Disappointed" -1000 points penalty and loss if leaving a game as Jason. Penalty for betraying and killing a team mate as a counselor has now been increased to 500 points. (DEVS ADDED) Multiplier of 2x penalty deduction added for consecutive team kills and betrayals by the same counselor. Total amount of times a player has performed a "Betrayal" is now added to their profile. Killing blows from bear traps for counselor's do not add to the "Betrayal" number on a player's profile. "Completionist" Total amount of times a player has stayed in a game all the way until the game was completed is now added to their profile. Thoughts? Post here and feel free to share.
