Any news?

Recommended Posts

I stopped playing on the day they killed dedicated servers. I took a break on the game and now I'm back, plaining to play more of this game.

I tried to substitute it with Dead by Daylight and I regret it until this moment. I couldn't find another game that gave me the same energy F13 once did.

Haven't played much video games  anyway...

Are there any news? How's the game right now? Is it playable?

Umm... If you're on PC, then hell no. If you're on console then yes, but you have to have patience, as you'll probably get kicked from a lobby or two before you finally find a match you can play all the way through without the host quitting or your connection timing out... Weirdly enough, I've had more issues with connection timeouts than I've had host-quits, but both are still major problems. If you want to start playing again, I'd suggest trying to be host if that's feasible for you, but if not, try to cherry pick lobbies with hosts that have a decent internet connection, and preferably are higher levels. It's no guarantee, but more experienced players are less likely to die early or leave if they do get killed. If you see a lobby with a LV 11 host and pings bouncing back and forth from yellow to red, run away as fast as you can.

Now, if you can manage to find a lobby without any connection or host issues, the game is still quite playable and as fun as it ever was. Exploits are as limited as they've ever been... Gunn is working on one final patch to try and address a few outstanding issues. There's good nights and there's bad ones... The good ones are usually enough that I keep coming back, even when the bad ones make me want to throw my Xbox out the window.

This game is what you make of it. If you see it as a broken down, buggy, poorly constructed piece of shit, you are correct. If you see it as flawed-as-fuck but still mildly entertaining, you are correct. If you see it as the dream-come-true game you"ve been praying for since childhood, you are correct. If you see it as something you play that gets you in the mood when your collection of My Little Pony porn isn't working for you  then guess what? You are correct. 

To use the same analogy I've said about this game for a very long time, it is a deformed shelter pet, but it is our deformed shelter pet and I will play it until it gets put down for good (I.E. no longer able to be played online at all)

I see slighty better numbers of good days compared to bad, though how long that remains true is uncertain at this point.

Our deformed shelter pet has brought us so many fond memories.

That sums it up perfectly.

I play on PC every once in a while, and haven't yet come across a hacked lobby. Make of that what you will.

Is it just me, or would anyone else have loved a "Jason vs Jason" mode? No shack, no counselors, no objectives... you spawn on one side of the map, the opposing Jason starts on the other, and you have ten minutes to demask him using TKs, traps, or melee slashes (trying to grab-kill another Jason sounds stupid as shit).

Each Jason's mask HP and weapon damage would be the same (to prevent some Jason's from having an unfair advantage over others) and if both still have their masks on, whoever took less damage wins (probably'd have to block access to the lake to stop someone from hitting the other Jason once and then hiding in water like a bitch).

That sounds like it could have been interesting. This game was in desperate need of more gamemodes. Sucks Paranoia never panned out.

I've always had a gamemode idea of my own: Slasher Competition. 2 Jasons vs. 14 counselors. The objective of the Jason players is to get more kills than the other Jason. For counselors it'd just be standard gameplay of trying to escape, etc.

You can play with your friends. I do not recommend playing with Quick Play.
