It would be really tough to make a league, cause based on everything that's been said so far it's not really that kind of game. It's not meant to be a competition in the traditional gaming sense like Rocket League or Street Fighter. The randomness of the map create a general luck of finding weapons and mission items that create a competitive misbalance that would make league ranking almost impossible. It's the same reason Left 4 Dead didn't have a ranking system and instead just let each player choose the difficulty and map they wanted to play with. There's too many variables that can affect a single player's performance ranking like if they get teamed up with crappy, loner teammates or if they just get start the match in an area that allows Jason to converge on them quicker than the other players.

There are a lot of random variables, but this game was meant for the counselors to survive at any cost. Starting with Jason near you may only be a minor inconvenience if you can stay ahead of him long enough to come across someone who isn't quite aware you're being followed. Regardless, I don't feel like this game should have an MLG tourney deal as trying not to get mutilated and murdered by Jason does not and should not be an E-sport. The e-sport scene is so cancerous and detrimental to a good community because of the stupid metas they create and the terrible people they bring . (Look at any moba or CS:GO group.) It'd create so many skype call play style metas that nobody wants. It wouldn't be too bad for a good Jason player as they'd find out how to stop it, and any other groups trying to do the same tactic, but at the same time, there'd be a lot of identical groups, which will end up forcing you to play utilizing the same tactic to combat them.

 

Tl:dr Mlg E sport scene comes in. Meta playstyles come in. Meta play styles become mainstream. Jason counter meta comes in. Jason Counter Meta becomes mainstream. Everyone plays the same way with the exact same outcome, until a new meta is created.
