Jarvis/private chat-counselors helping jason

Recommended Posts

Love the game. Definitely appreciate all the hard work continuously going into the game. Have a couple ideas (which may or may not have been considered/suggested).

1) Tommy Jarvis. Best character in game (minus jason). Spawning as Jarvis seems to favor the 1st person killed after Jarvis has been called (not so random). Be nice for this to become more random (perhaps he spawns no earlier than 8 min into the match, or when 3 counselors remain). Gotta keep the Noobs joining, but a level 5 Jarvis? Why not make a level 20 min to spawn as Jarvis? Also, how about a quick mini game to be played by potential jarvis' (if nothing more than to make sure that player is actually paying attention and playing).

2) private chat/helping Jason.

I have no answers for this. I love the salt mines idea and hope that weeds some of this out. Perhaps nothing can be done about private chat (which tends to be buddies helping eachother), but what about some reporting or flagging system for blatant cheats? Counselors obviously helping jason (we know who they are) should be sent to the salt mines as well. Perhaps assign each player a limited amount of flags to tag cheats. When a player accumulates so many, bam, salt mines. Just some thoughts. Thanks

I agree it sucks seeing a new player with no idea how to play playing as Tommy. Bad Tommy's are one of my pet peeves. That said allowing new players to play as him gives them a chance to play more and learn to play quicker. As Jason I want a level 1 Tommy. 

The only thing to kill the private chat for helping Jason is to disable party chat in QP. This won't stop people from using discord, or some other com system, but it'll at least curb it on consoles. I'm Leary of a report system in this game, with as small a team as they have it would have to be automated, and that would be vulnerable to being exploited.

I just don't think it takes too long to get to a level 20 (I made that in my 1st week), but that experience also would be helpful. The game has been wanting to get Jarvis  more competitive. One way is to make a min level. 

Adding on to earlier, nothing more annoying than Jarvis helping jason (in addition to being clueless). 

I agree, a flagging system could be exploited. Why I'm think everyone gets 1 flag per week to tag a cheater. Maybe it takes 10 flags to get banished to salt mines. There's gotta be a proportionate system which could work (including time frame for removing flags)

It'svery difficult to get any game without these issues. Be great to weed em out.

Yep, the report system thing always sounds good on paper, but let's not forget, that even AAA developers who "monitor" reports still get exploited and abused. A small team who doesn't seem to do much with the report page they have in place now will certainly not be hands on with an in game report system either. And I believe the devs took a more lazy approach and changed the ToS to where Jason teaming is not a bannable offense. That action alone shows me they have little interest in policing cheaters.

I agree, it seems like I run into assholes in game in waves. When the lobbies are bad they are horrendous, and that's when I find something else to do. However when the lobbies are good, this is my favourite game to play by far.

Id like the option of tommy spawning when half the counselors are gone. Or when only 1 or 2 remain. I dont think anything can be done about comms in QP.

I like the idea of skills tier. There is a difference between level and skill for sure. I'd def like to have competitive matches more often as either Jason or counselor. Also, id like to think higher tiers would play with integrity for bragging rights and avoid the kids and cheaters who lack skill and cheat.

Yep, especially when you  knocked Jason's mask off, found the sweater, and bring Jarvis a machete....then he takes off to escape by cop....
