With news of a report function coming to Friday the 13th: The Game, it helps to know what the developers will be looking for when considering whether to ban someone or not. It’s probably worth it to check out the new list of bannable offenses when it comes to Friday the 13th.
- Deliberate Third-Party Hacking Software – Anyone caught with automation/speed/wall hacking and other third party macro systems to give them an edge in-game will result in a ban
- Threats of Violence/Rape/Sexual Assault – Those using Voice Chat to threaten and harass other users with threats of sexual violence, rape and domestic violence to a degree unsuitable for social standards will result in a ban.
- Excessive Racism – Those caught being racist to others will result in a ban.
- Deliberately Helping Jason – This one is trickier; we will ban the Jason player and those helping Jason for deliberately ‘helping’ Jason win a match through killing other teammates or working to farm XP.
- Deliberate Abuse of Exploits – Exploit usage that results in the deliberate griefing of others to gain an advantage and overall reduce enjoyment for other players will result in a ban.
- Do Not Pretend to be an Employee of Gun Media or IllFonic – Anyone utilizing usernames that attempt to act as a member of our team or speaks in-game as an employee of our team will result in a ban.
- Do Not Spam Report Those You Do Not Like – Reporting users needs to be constructive; we do not ban for team-killing. Please only report those you are certain of cheating or exploiting. We will eventually ignore requests from those excessively reporting other users for actions that do not fall within these guidelines.
The best way to prove someone is cheating or exploiting the game in anyway is to capture video of the incident. It’s pretty hard to prove somebody is helping Jason through a screenshot, although screenshots can confirm things like glitches.
For those of you out there that like to run down your teammates in the car, it looks like you’re safe from a ban for now. Team-killing is not a bannable offense. While it can tough to prove someone is, without a doubt, helping Jason, we have seen it done before. Since helping him is on the list, it’s widespread enough to target.
If you have evidence of a player cheating or doing any of the above actions, Gun Media encourages you to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org with any and all reports.
