  1. Hi there, I have recently been doing more slashing to help spread out counselors and avoid pocket knives. I have noticed that after a successful slash, there doesn't seem to be anything Jason can do to avoid their counterhit. Keep in mind that I need to test this more, but I wanted to see what other people are doing to avoid getting hit in the face lol.
  2. Hey Campers, This is a thread that I have been meaning to do for some time but have not previously got around to it. Many times I have new players ask me for advice in game or I see new players lamenting that there isn't more information given in regards to tutorials and strategies. They get the generic, break windows, trap phone first, trap four-seater, don't play Part 7, et cetera but do not actually hear much in terms of specific strategies for specific situations. What I would like to do with this thread is pick a specific scenario or strategy about once, maybe twice, a week and discuss different approaches to dealing with it. Think of it as a playbook where we can share ideas and specific approaches we use for a given situation. This thread will not be on any one specific topic but something that evolves and changes weekly.

The topic was regarding shift-grab and if it was skill or luck. See topic here: WEEK 1 - The Juke (let us talk about the fine art of leaving Jason in the dust) Ok, some might say this is self-explanatory. Don't run in straight lines or git gud or some other such nonsense. New players, and some veterans, have issues with avoiding the aforementioned Shift-Grab. People can be pretty salty about it. There are things that will help offset the skill of the players who have mastered this technique. A. Bear in mind perspective/point of view. A Jason approaching from the rear has YOU as a foreground target. Moving in a linear direction away or perpendicular to Jason's perspective makes you an easier target. Counselors that are walking or jogging are easy pickings in these situations and running counselors are not much better off when moving perpendicular to Jason's perspective. Moving away is slightly better when sprinting because you *possibly* can open up enough distance when he comes out to Shift-Grab you - he might miss. Either way these are less desirable techniques in my opinion. B. Closing the distance of YOU as a foreground target is used by a lot of people. They are trying to throw off Jason's perspective and make him overshoot the target by doubling back on their own path. This can work against short-range Shifts, but it is still essentially moving in the same azimuth (from Jason's point of view) and simply closing the distance quickly. A good Jason can still easily snatch you. C. I recommend using a triangle pattern: You change your foreground presence by moving diagonally. This adjusts your range from Jason in the foreground and makes him consider more than one axis of movement (you are not just moving back and forth or left and right). Figure 1: Moving directly away. Probably the worst option. You are only adjusting your position in the same direction of movement as Jason is facing. Figure 2. Moving perpendicular to Jason. Bad (it gets worse the farther you are away because Jason has more time to steer the hit). A simple Shift approach, leading you like in a shooter game, and Jason has you. Figure 3. Better than 1 or 2 because you are closing the distance between Jason and reducing the time to react. Best used on extremely short Shift distances to throw off the Jason player. It is OK. DO NOT TRY AGAINST A LONG SHIFT. You're just making it easy for shift ninja Jason in my opinion. Figure 4. This is what I do. I change my position both in the foreground and laterally. I move primarily in diagonals and they are strung together in a quick series of adjustments. Don't run any one leg more than a second or so. After the end of two diagonal movements you make a break (horizontal seems best). I would recommend breaking back towards the original center-line for your axis of advance (complete the triangle). This will often throw off Jason's Shift approach and get you out of the grab swath. Remember you can also invert and/or reverse this tactic to make your counselor very unpredictable for a Shift-grabbing Jason. Additional Info: Juking on rough terrain benefits the counselor. Jason has a tendency to get hung up on rocks, trees, building corners, and just about anything else. As you are running/jogging be expecting the Shift and thinking about which way to initiate your juke to put the most obstacles between you and Jason while keeping up your erratic evasion.
  3. Since Gun is still working on a current fix on our matchmaking... ... The most effective way to enter a lobby with at least one other person, is to press "Quick Play" and allow it to search for ONE session. Once you see it say "Search Cool-down" cancel the matchmaking and do it again. At least that way, it won't cause you to join lobbies by yourself. You'll join with at least one other person and you are guaranteed to wait about 5-10 minutes for more people to join, but it appears as if people are leaving sessions less now - so once you find one you'll probably keep the same people for awhile. Or you could party up with people via communities or here or on the reddit forums. I hope this helps some.
  4. What role would you put Chad as? Also share your perks for Chad. I'm using Thick Skin, Sucker Punch, and Heavy Hitter all epic of course, I put Chad in the role of playing as a Body Gaurd. Please share your thoughts and support/tips all you Chad Fans.???
  5. Hey guys, I've read a lot of tips on here for the best ways to use Jason, but I'm still finding it difficult taking out all of the players during a match. I'd say I've only had the chance to play as Jason 6-7 times (which is kinda crazy for how many matches I've played). Only once have i been able to kill almost everyone. Most of those times I've used my Savini Jason. I love the way he looks, and his weapon destruction is great. I think the pitchfork is bad-ass because of the distance, but it takes this Jason so long to complete a whole swing...when you miss your mark it makes chasing a player pretty difficult. I also find its way to easy for players to get out of a grab. Anyways after just finishing a match where I only killed 1 of 7, I'm thinking of practicing with a new one. So, can anyone recommend another Jason or offer up some tips of how to get to playing flawlessly? Also, does each Jason have a different speed at which they use their weapon? Like I said, the pitchfork has it's perks but it's so fucking slow. Is a machete faster? Part Six and Seven seem appealing because I find sense/shift to be very important, I may try them out next. Thanks y'all!
  6. I found this on Reddit, this guy is on point with feedback and changes. I totally agree with 99% of this. Devs please have a read! - https://www.reddit.com/r/F13thegame/comments/5kc5lv/i_hope_you_had_a_great_time_in_the_beta_please/dbn2kx0/ Also just some add on's and highlighting some stuff in the reddit post. - WEATHER A weather system would be great to see. For example, a stormy night with rain, wind lightning and such, Make it harder for Jason to sense and impact the counselors also. Weather would be good to have generated randomly to add diversity to every match. - HIDING MECHANICS. as XNeoRizerX states in his Reddit threat: " Hiding spots need to be reworked and counselors should just shut up about their location unless they're in grey mode fearing for their life... If they're perfectly fine and in a closet or under a bed they shouldn't be screaming "OH GOD, PLEASE DON'T KILL ME!"... I've had so many easy kills due to this and it renders hiding useless, it acts like a forfeit... The player might as well just say "I give up, here I am, just kill me"... it's a stupid mechanic. "
