Developer Announces Plans For Salty Friday the 13th: The Game Players
Don't be a sore loser or you will find yourself alone with Jason in the Salt Mines.
In another recent post, Gun Media's Community Manager has revealed some upcoming changes to the public matchmaking system for Friday the 13th: The Game, specifically the separation of regular players from the toxic ones via what they have dubbed the "Salt Mines."
Trolls and troublemakers will soon find themselves stuck playing amongst their own kind, essentially damning them to a hell of their own creation where they will be lucky to play the game at all. Here is the in-depth update describing the creation of this new grouping:[blockquote-0]
This is great news for players who rely on the public match system, as these trolls and griefers are the very reason many of us have exclusively played private matches with friends since day one. As with any automated system like this, there are some risks of players getting accidentally lumped in with the "bad" players. In this case especially, though, this is another welcome change and we are looking forward to checking it out. The game's developers, Illfonic, later clarified that it is fine for players to leave after they have been killed, just not while Jason is finishing them off (unless you're the host).[blockquote-1][scripttag-0]
What are your thoughts on the Salt Mines? Hopefully they will lead to an overall better game experience for everyone and cut down on all the hijinks and quitters. We here at Dead Entertainment are looking forward to that engine ugrade update more and more!
