I won't know till next week, presuming Australia gets the patch when Europe does?
One thing I came across before but much more frequently when playing tonight: at a certain point in both games that I played as Jason, the cursor that should appear on my map just disappeared for the rest of the game. As you can imagine, this is quite problematic when you don't have a clue where you are on the map unless you happen to be near an obvious landmark, and even when you are it's hard to know what spot to morph to.
I had a Vanessa evade me for the last 6-8 minutes of a game and she ended up surviving, due in no small part to that annoying glitch. Then it happened again the next game that I was Jason. The fact I was Part 2 Jason (used to always play as him but tend to pick Part 8 nowadays) and his shift sucks didn't make it any easier.
One thing that I find hugely concerning is that apparently as of the new patch, Jason can't see the summary of players which tells you which counselors are still alive, whether Tommy has shown up, the ping etc... What the actual fuck?
That surely has to be a mistake as that would be complete bullshit if not. I believe I read that Jason doesn't even know how many counselors are in any given match? Which sounds absurdly shit if true. This was posted on the F13 reddit though so hopefully it is inaccurate.
Unfortunately the patch is awful. I've had a multitude of issues just in the first hour after the patch launched. The player list can still be seen, but as Jason you have to press Select and go to mute players, while as a counselor you have to open the map and hit L1.
They said it shouldn't be happening, but considering that emotes take up the spot of accessing the player list I find that hard to believe.
