  1. Thanks for making the guide. Glad at least a few people are showing Victoria some love! What are your thoughts on her sweater shopping potential? I feel like the speed/stamina which helps her transverse large maps undetected, also helps her travel to out of the way Jason shacks. Guess the downside would be a Jason that tunnels you after entering his shack, since that axe will only give you so many stuns. Though maybe that's enough to get you to the closest cluster of cabins...
  2. Gordon is a scaredy dog. He ran away at first sight of Jason, leaving Tommy and Trish to fend for themselves.
  3. Any luck unlocking the backdoor (near the kitchen / dining room)? It feels like there might be something else to the Virtual Cabin...
  4. Ok, no rush to migrate to a mouse then! I don't even like playing as Jason. Do you think any counselor-centric actions are particularly better with keyboard/mouse controls? I'm not that great at fixing things with counselors stupider than Kenny, but not sure leaving the controller behind would address that.
  5. I've been playing Friday the 13th since the beta days, though usually only 1-2 hours before bed a few nights a week. Still, I've managed to get to Level 40. Just like with the movies, I'm more interested in rooting for the surviving counselors than cheering Jason kills. Hence, my match preference is set to Counselor and luck/probability only has me playing as Jason about once in every 10-15 games. I really like Savini Jason since he looks awesome, has scary theme music and is kinda rare in the Steam community nowadays. Unfortunately, he can't run and I'm not good at Shifting. Any tips on how to be a better Shifter? I'm using an Xbox controller attached my laptop (which I HDMI into a flat screen TV) for my bootleg console experience. My primary problem is I can't seem to stop shifting at the right moment (a few steps ahead of a counselor). My secondary problem is that sometimes the joystick seems a bit too sensitive and I end up by the side of the lake instead of on the path. In some of the Lobbies, I've heard tangential stories that a mouse is better for Shift accuracy. Not really enthused about going back to keyboard play, especially since I'm on a laptop with a touchpad. But if a mouse truly is superior for those sensitive operations, then I could be motivated to switch (with a good mouse recommendation). But what I'd really appreciate are some tips on how to get better at Shifting with a controller.
  6. Anyone notice that only one of the original counselors is missing from the Paranoia trailer? Where's Adam at? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPWOnK96GGI
  7. Thanks for the recommendation; got one and it has been great.
  8. After months of playing the strong silent type, I'm finally ready to use a mic. There just aren't enough emotes or flashlight flashes to ask if anyone has seen the phone box. However, I need some advice on headsets since there are like a gazillion on Amazon. I'm a PC gamer that hooks my laptop's HDMI to a big flat-screen and sits about 8 feet back on a couch using one of those Xbox-like controllers. My three biggest requirements are: (1) mute button so I don't accidentally let Jason find me, (2) reaches me wired with some give or wirelessly, (3) not crazy expensive since I'm just playing a game and not recording a new Top 40 hit. Any strong recommendations from personal experience using in the F13 game?
  9. Wow, loving this thread! Definitely picked up a few good takeaways already. True to my username, I'm often in a situation where I'm the final guy. Usually with about 5-7 minutes left. In the early days, I could just stealthy tip toe around the perimeter of the maps and/or non-cabin areas to survive the night (usually as AJ or Jenny with some Sense Avoidance perks). This was mainly because the unfinished objectives became over patrolled death traps. As players had more time to become better Jasons, this strategy worked less and less. So what's your advice for surviving the night as a final guy (or girl) when the police have *not* been called and there are no finished objectives?
  10. Did you see how brutally Jason went after Tommy in Part 4? He totally would have killed him if he could!
  11. Sorry for the noob-level of this question. Is there a way to keep your camera fixed so it always aligns with the direction your counselor is facing? It's getting pretty annoying to be zig-zagging frantically away from Jason only to have the camera remaining focused on my side while I can barely see in front of me. I haven't quite mastered the whole running while changing camera angles thing.
  12. Yeah, it's pretty disappointing. I've been a huge sweater stealer since Day 1. Ever since that big glitch patch, it seems the sweater doesn't break out of a grab anymore.
  13. Ah missed that, thanks. On one hand I don't like playing as Jason, so that sucks. On the other hand, seems like a low pressure no judgments way to practice being Jason.
  14. Wait, so will there be a Counselor-focused single player mode? It'd be really cool to play as a Ginny or Chris slowly discovering that all your friends are dead while trying to outsmart/kill Jason.
  15. I wish there was a "No Jason" option since I'm all about playing as a the Counselors. However, even with the Counselor Spawn Preference, I still get Jason like 1/15 games. But I'll give it a go the whole match just so everyone else has a fun game. I prefer Part 2 Jason since he can run and has the most traps. I usually load up the fuse box with traps (3-4) since I don't want an easy exit. Then I'll just place the rest strategically around the 4-seater car to deter another mass exodus. Finally, I knock out all the power boxes. Then I look for counselors in cabins (yay, OP Sense), busting out all the windows before entering. I'm pretty bad with Shift, so I just run and slash. Kinda makes the rest of the game feel like those long chase scenes at the end of the each movie. It's fun for me and probably fun for the counselors, even though I don't end up killing many. If Tommy has respawned and someone has the sweater, I totally Morph away from the sweater girl like she is the big bad serial killer. Even though I'm not a great Jason player, I'm still not about to give someone the kill.
  16. Thank you so much! Over enough nights of game play this will literally save hours of my life!
  17. When I'm playing as Jenny or AJ, loaded with Sense Avoidance perks, slowly stealthing around then loud Vanessa or scared Tiffany jumps in my cabin attracting Jason pretty soon after. When I'm playing as dumb-as-rocks Tiffany and no one is around (or cares to) fix with the parts I'm dropping off. When another counselor starts criticizing my fixing ability. Like seriously, don't crowd me out if you just want to micromanage. When I grab the sweater and Tommy spawns as some lame player who died first and has no interest in trying to kill Jason.
  18. The creativity is so high on this, why ban? Now if everyone starts doing it, totally different story...
  19. I'm seeing a few guides/threads coming out which rank counselors/perks/strategies based on the assumption that people are collaborating as a team. However, in practice, this isn't always the case. Public lobbies are a mixed bag of people who don't have mics, don't speak your language or just aren't interested in working together. Also, sometimes you're just feeling anti-social and don't want to interact with other people. What are some good recommendations for players that want to survive as lone wolves? I'm a big fan of playing as AJ loaded with Sense Avoidance perks (Level Headed, Low Profile, Homebody). I just slowly skulk around cabins collecting items. Fixing the phone and calling police seems like the easiest escape option for a lone wolf. Also, it's perfect to free load off of since all you need to do is find your way towards one of the two exits once the police are called (because 50/50 probability it will be the exit you wait near). If everyone ends up dead (or escaping without me), I tend to stealth around the woods and shores (far from cabins) with my flashlight on. When Jason's full attention is on me (and his Sense ability increases), it's a huge liability to be jumping in and out of cabins. Usually only have 5-7 minutes left in the game at this point, so it's not excruciatingly boring. Any other tips for lone wolves?
  20. Where I live, an IMAX 3D movie (with seats reserved via Fandango) for 2 people costs $47.98. There have surely been a few disappointing movies recently. This game is definitely worth skipping one date night to the latest Sci-Fi / Fantasy movie playing on IMAX.
  21. I don't start out with intention of surviving the full 20 minutes, but if everyone ends up dead (or escaping without me) then I give it a go. By the time I'm the Final Guy (or, rather, Final Girl since I often play AJ) there's usually only 5-7 minutes left anyway. Figure one slip up when fixing stuff and Jason will morph right to me. Also, if you're the only counselor left then a moving car or boat on Jason's morph map, when you have his undivided attention, is like asking to get slaughtered. Usually best to stealth crouch (with your flashlight on) around woods and shore far away from the cabins. But as long as there is at least one other (probably louder) counselor alive, I'll do the normal find stuff and fix stuff strategy. Because quite honestly, it is a little boring just to skulk around hoping not to get killed.
  22. I'm a big fan of the slow-and-steady game, stealthily sneaking around cabins as AJ to collect items while trying to fly under Jason's radar. My go to perk combination is Level Headed, Low Profile and Homebody for maximum Sense Avoidance. One thing I'm still trying to figure out is what's the best strategy when you hear the ominous Jason music nearby? My intuition tells me to hide, but I've noticed my fear increases (i.e. blackened edges of screen) if I hide too long. Also, I'm wondering if there is Jason-detectable sound when I open a closet door or get out from the under a bed. Lately I've been experimenting with crouching, facing a wall with my flashlight on and remaining still. From unscientific personal game play observations, it seems Jason is more likely to move on with that crouching technique. Has anyone done more thorough experiments? What's the best way to minimize sound bubbles? Please take into consideration that some Jasons tend roam around the area a bit so the optimal technique also needs to minimize fear for 3-5 consecutive minutes.
