Played a match earlier and met a charming individual. It starts out on Higgins Haven large. I spawn behind radio tower house and call Tommy. The cabin is in Springwater near the boat. I search both cabins here and find nothing useful.

Search a third cAbin to find a Vanessa that is searching through the third one I come across and leaving doors wide open. Good sign. I find the gas can in this house, that she clearly over looked since it wasnt in a drawer. As I head to the bathroom for a spray, i notice its the phone house. Yup. The one in Evergreen.

I run the gas down as Fox, put it in. Run back up through Evergreen and notice all cabins up here have been searched. So not only did someone find phone fuse, but propeller as well, then decided to take off with it. I run to the barn to see if that person had anything, all the while calling out "who took the fuse? I know where phone house is. Who took the propeller? I put the gas in". Of course, not a single mic. 

I come across Jason here. He hasn't killed a single person yet. Good job guy. I run back towards Evergreen. Now I see two players coming along Springwater on the road. A Jenny holding the propeller and a Debbie in a bikini with a shotgun. I ask if either has the fuse, explain I put the gas in the boat and dont care if they take my seat, as long as I get the fuse. They ignore any talk. Retarded Jenny proceeds to fuck up on the repair and bunny Debbie stands there. They take off and escape. 

What happens after they do? The fuse pops uo on the beach. One of these players, namely the one whom had been Jenny, spawns in next to me as Tommy. I run down and pick up the fuse. Next to the fuse spawns a pocket knife, which tommy picks up as if he needs another one. I then run up to repair the phone. Obviously Tommy ran off in another direction because he knows he is supposed to protect people. I fix the phone and mess up once on the QTE. Jason morphs over and i make the call. I hop away and Jason gets distracted by someone else. 

As I wait in the northern cabin in Evergreen, sweater girl comes in my cabin. Her and i run over to the nearest person to see its the Vanessa from earlier. I look at the map. The timer has 30  seconds until cops arrive. The one person on the other side of the map is Two pocket knife Tommy. Of course he escapes with all that. Could have went for the kill, could have protected people. Instead, survives of other people's work.

All quickplay Tommys are trash. Watched my wife play and a Tommy just hid until about the last two minutes when Jason finally got to him.

Without a better incentive for Tommy help others escape, or a penalty for the ones that don't, people will always treat Tommy as nothing more than a second Life.

Not all Tommys. I played a match last night and some little kid spawned in as Tommy. (At 1:30 a.m.? Surprised he was up so late.) He saw me fixing the car and straight up gave me his pocket knife. (I didn't ask for it, or at that moment even needed it.) He tried leading me to the gas tank but Jason was patrolling that area, plus I had earlier fixed the phone box so it was just easier to escape that way.

Was spectating in a match today after escaping. A player in that match came back as Tommy, ran around attempting to distract Jason and ran in to the water right in front of him. No joke. Like a bot. Jason was on his ass and he ran right in to the water and got himself drowned.

Most, not all. I try my damndest to be a good Tommy in terms of protecting individuals, while also doing what is best for the overall group of remaining survivors.

In the rare instances I get to be Tommy my approach with him depends entirely on the group I'm playing with. If they're cool I'm the most helpful Tommy you could ask for: running around healing people, disarming traps, completing objectives, striking Jason when he's closing in on someone, etc. If I'm lumped in with a group of shitbags I do absolutely nothing to help them. There's times where I've came back when the cops are already there and I'll fire the shotgun to purposely waste it and walk right out.

I would vote me. It's happened more than once where I'm in QP, get killed and decide that I have plenty of time to go have a quick cigarette. Come back in to see that I'm Tommy and have been just standing there for several minutes.

However, other than that I do try to help others get out and bait Jason away from others as much as possible.

I was playing Fox, and pretty much the whole match Jason tunneled me. They got all the objectives done, and several players escaped after the cops were called. One player was Tommy, and no joke, saw me trying to escape, he kept his gun, and kept his distance. The Jason ends up killing me, which resulted in a angry Fox. I was so close to the exits.

The worst Tommy I encountered,  did the following:

# running around in a cabin (no hiding) with a bat

# I thought ok, went by myself for the sweater, picked it up and on the way back also found a machete and then hurried back to Tommy‘s cabin

# Tommy was still there, searching the same drawers...

# I dropped the machete in front of Tommy, he picked it up and together we went out in search for Jason (at least this had been my thinking)

# next second Jason shows up (mask was already off at that time) and Tommy?

# instead of attacking,Tommy runs into the next cabin and shortly comes back... again with a bat!

# So I went into the cabin, picked up the machete again and put it in front of Tommy (I also used mic, but he obviously had muted me before or was just deaf, stoned, plastered or all together?)

# Tommy (surprise - picked up the machete a second time), I started the sweater.... and Tommy?

# Tommy left the lobby, „rage quitted“, and Jason got me...

Back when it was first released and you could harm other players in QP on Pac I had a shotgun, Tommy came over, shot me and picked my shotty up and headed for the next player and killed them too and proceeded to take swings at random councellors with a bat until Jason slashed him to death.

Asked why he did that? 'You guys never protected me'. He had spawned at the main lodge with the fuse and car next to it and gotten swiftly killed and apparently the rest of the lobby were to blame.

I've also seen Tommy take seats in cars/boats leaving others high and dry multiple times.

That's when The Chad gets in a car and takes care of business. Not even Two pocket knife Tommy can withstand the onslaught of the car.

I dont get to be him all that much, but I must be one of the better quick play Tommys then. I actually want to help. And to hear Tommy taunt Jason when he stuns him to which I'll probably parrot lol

Hiding Tommys are even worse than AFK Tommys.

Tommy Jarvis spawning in, dashing for the fixed up boat or car has become such a common thing it is expected when I enter QP with a group of friends. It's a running gag for us to announce that we are fixing and objective for Tommy to escape. 

I personally will give up my spot as Tommy and I'll try to keep Jason at bay. I will also escort and wait for stragglers, but if you fuck around while police are there I'll leave.

We shall see which Tommy is the worst. I am currently making a compilation of all the wonderfully retarded Tommy players. Then we can vote :lol:

I mean As a Tommy or general Player I am pretty bad at Combat, So I try to help everyone with Objectives, If I find something like a Fuse or Gas and Know which Car (Or Boat) needs it, I bring it over and fix it, I am pretty good at firing with flare guns so I usually save people from afar with a flare gun.

Just spectated a match today. This Tommy beats all. He was AFK and became easy Jason fodder. :JasonPt6:  lulz

Why is It Always the players that clearly don't know what their doing, that are chosen to be Tommy? It's really annoying to see a Tommy player that leaves everybody else behind or just hides until the timer runs out <_<

Just wish that being picked to spawn in as Tommy was chosen by the players skill, not just randomly

There should be a system that should compare each of the players escape rates and however has the highest survival/escapes in matches, should be chosen to be Tommy.

It would be better than having a lvl 2 Tommy run around not helping the counselors and only hiding.

Worst Tommy I ever saw was someone killed in the first minute of the game. Came back as Tommy and I met him at the four seater, which was trapped at the hood but nowhere else. Someone else had left the keys and the battery nearby because of the trap.

I (as Deborah) arrived with the gas. I saw Tommy run up from a different direction and pick up the keys.

I said, "Tommy Jarvis! Perfect timing. Go ahead and disarm the trap and install the battery while I put in the gas."

I put in the gas flawlessly, then ran to the passenger door. That's when I noticed TJ standing by the driver's door. I looked at the front of the car and saw the hood was still up.

Me: "Dude! Why didn't you put in the battery?"

*bunch of clicks*

Him: (after rustling with a mic he wasn't using) "Uh, I already used the knife on Jason."

Me: "How? You literally spawned about thirty seconds ago, I never heard Jason's music."

Him: "I . . . guess he was in stalk. Go fix the battery. You're a fixer counselor."

Me: "So is Tommy Jarvis."

*silence*

Me: "You have a med spray. You could have tanked the trap."

Him: "Wulll . . . Jason slashed me, too. Do you wanna get outta here, or what?"

Me: "I don't have a knife or a med spray."

Him: "Just tank the trap and then jump in the car."

So I did. *snap!* I put in the battery and TJ jumped in the driver's seat.

*WAAAAHHHHH!!!*

Roy's music hits. Luckily, he morphed about 20 feet in front of the car. Roy starts jogging for the car. 

I stand next to the passenger door, spamming the action button.

As SOON as the car starts, TJ slams it into reverse, leaving me limping behind.

I'm critically hurt, and -- as I mentioned before to TJ, I had no med spray, I had no knife.

Roy grabs me while TJ performs a K-turn and drives off. 

I'm dead.

I then spectate TJ driving PAST two other counselors who saw the car moving and raced to meet him on the road. They start screaming at him while he drives past them and goes straight for the exit.

I had a few choice words for him after he escaped.

His response? "Oh, wah-#&@%in'-wah. Look, if I can use your death to escape -- yer gonna die. You're just mad that I escaped and you didn't. That's the way you're supposed to play the game, dip$#!%."

. . . . I hate QP.  :(

If I'm Tommy, first I check to see if the car/boat/phone objectives have been reached.  If they haven't, I go for objectives.  If the cops have been called, I go towards the exits and try to distract/protect so people can escape.  If the car is started, I try to head towards the road it's on, so I can try to stun Jason if he stops the car.  It's the obvious approach, but it's amazing how many people don't get that.

If you've played the game for more than a day, you've probably escaped before, so I don't get Tommys who throw people to the wolves.

When team killing was on, there was a jason with a teammate, we luckily killed him, then he came back as tommy and shot me, and at that time I had a shotgun, so he got more kills than Jason.

The worst Tommy's are the ones who steal the four seater or the boat , going alone with nobody besides them.
