This is my 3,000th post.

Join us- you too can get into arguments with people from all over the world! Debate intricacies of the game and franchise like a bitter custody battle! Kill spare time! It's more fun than spectating!

It's not all that bad though- join up, just use the search function before creating a thread. No, you're not the first person to think the game needs Jason X, host migration, Pamela, Freddy, etc. Seriously- use the search function.

That is all.

I'm not convinced. I think this is where Ben got rabies.

I don't see this as being fair. I've been on these forums for not as long as other members, yet I have lurked until recently, and I can honestly say there are several threads here that basically complain about, well, everything. I'm not saying the game is perfect; there have been several bugs, and the game isn't exactly polished, but it's also not very old. Given time, I believe this game will eventually run smoothly, and there is new content coming out soon (new Jason, new maps, new counselors, all of them announced to be free).

Furthermore, they have a major event coming up soon: the physical release on the actual friday the 13th this month. They're playtestesting the hell out of everything to make sure the game will run well, so it doesn't help seeing threads that make it looks like the developers don't care about fixing the game. They obviously do, because if they didn't then the game wouldn't sell, and they would lose money fast.

I suppose this is the part where I get bagged on for looking like a suckup, but honestly this is starting to get out of hand. I've been part of gaming forums before, but I've never seen one before that's become antagonistic after only a few months of existence. It's basically the reason why I don't reveal my PS4 account to anyone here; respect as well as understanding is almost non-existant, no basic courtesy, it's basically a giant group of howler monkeys everytime something goes wrong with a patch.

My post was just a joke. Ben is a bro.

But this is the internet. Give anyone a voice, and you'll find a palette of different opinions. It is what it is. I enjoy the community for its variety of opinions -- some I find personally invalid, and some I find too optimistic or fantastical. It is what it is. That's why it's called a forum. :) You'll find the same on the Discord and the subreddit. 

Those who think the teams don't care about fixing the game are simply short-sighted. Gun and Illfonic can be as transparent as they can, and these people will still find a reality congruent to their beliefs. The reason you're seeing such a hive of negativity (and positivity; let's get real) is because Gun and Illfonic are pretty connected to the fanbase. Inarguably more transparent and connected than most other game dev companies. Players of the game know this, and so they yelp louder because there is incentive to voice their opinions. Picture baby birds in a nest and how they chirp louder when the mama bird is within range, except mama bird is always within range with Gun and Illfonic through Twitter, the forums, the Discord, the subreddit, et cetera and so on.

Don't let that discourage you, @Trident77. Let people be people, and let yourself be yourself.

Not at all. The negativity can be draining. It is why in life, and on these forums, I joke around a lot. Not everyone finds me funny, or catches the joke ;), but I do sincerely believe that levity makes me a more tolerant person.

What platform do you play on?

Remember here you get 10 likes per day. Some of the hilarious threads will eat those up. I would say I am glad you are away from the negativity on Reddit, but things seem a bit touch and go on here right now. Hopefully you meet some of the more fun forum members and get to play some good games with new players. God luck and good speed!

At first I really thought this was all over the coffee cup joke thread and was kind of baffled. Now that I have read some other things... 

We didn't always agree @bewareofbears, but that is part of discussing things. Your snarkiness will be missed. 

Ps mods, sorry if this ends up being a double post. Sent from my phone and meant to keep those two together. Love ya! Your hair looks nice.

I missed the coffee cup joke post but it must have been super serious and offensive to warrant the official forum punishment to that unnamed user as well.

Feel free to head over there and join that club if you want. Some forum member as well as good players that warranted the invite. Chill people that don't berate players for not having a good match or being the best. I believe that chapter was started by @NthnButAGoodTime.
