Why is slashing so frowned upon?

Recommended Posts

So I'm playing as jason. Lobby full of people with mic's on excited. We all been playing a few rounds and it's awesome. Well I become jason. When I picked up the game a few months ago it would always glitch when I grabbed counselors so over time I just started slashing. Well I slash the first guy and he immediately gets pissed. I killed everyone and they are so pissed I slashed evreyone they call me trash and all exit the lobby. Wtf?? Why can't I slash. They even said I didnt actually kill anyone because I slashed them. Like how? I know the glitch is fixed but I'm still just kinda use to what I been doing. So why is slashing so hated?

It's because you didn't grab them and used the Choke Kill.  Everyone loves the Choke Kill.

Slash killing, head punch kills and choke kills are bitch kills.   Theres a time and place to use it, but if that's all you use, people won't like it.  And for good reason.

They are very anti-climatic.    Like I said. bitch kills.  

Not sure why you would ask 'Why is slashing hated?".

Slash em. Jason Voorhees is the king of slasher films. Put the "slash" in slasher. Those people are bitching because they didn't get to use their pocket knife.

I have never understood the slasher hate, at all.

I mean, it’s literally MORE work for Jason because you have to get within grabbing range at least 3 times or more to even get them limping. That’s 3+ times you could of just grabbed & killed them (assuming they don’t have a PK) Instead you slashed, got smacked, they healed, then you gotta repeat the whole process over again.

I personally don’t slash. Not because people hate it, but because it just makes things that much more difficult for me. If I’m slashing someone I’m gonna get hit back in the process. That = Damage & I prefer to avoid it whenever possible.

Its because they are bitch kills.  Its not that complicated.

Its like going on a date with a porn star, expecting the ride of a life time.  Only to have her flick you on the nose and leave 5 seconds later.

Bad or new players don't know how to deal with it.  Also likely they are dealing with a Part 3 or 4 and don't have ThickSkin.  But yea, mindless slashing will just result taking an counter-attack that leads to a stun + heal or an easy demask from Bugzy/Tommy.  Slashing has it's uses, and should be used along with Knives and grabs.  There is really no reason not to take advantage of all of Jason's offensive tools.

It should be mixed in with grabs. But, it's your game ... play how you want to. If I KNOW for a fact someone has a PK, I am slashing them. I slash Tommy almost every time unless I can shift/grab him to get rid of the PK. But slash, knives, making them go through broken windows and grabs all combined make for an entertaining round. Plus, counselors won't know if you plan to slash, or grab, if you're doing both. I also slash more/or less depending on which Jason I am using. Part 9 for example, I rarely slash. Part 4, I am slashing away.

Because they don't know how to defend against it.  They have a PK most likely.  Slashing sometimes is harder, but you know what?  The more they bitch about it the more you should slash!

It's in the game so use it and let them bitch about it.  Easier for you if they don't want to improve...

slashing is as close to a new kill as you can get.. why? because when you slash somebody to death, limbs go flyin, their body can go flying into a fence or a wall, you might get a hilarious body flop animation, ect.. i caught a vanessa trying to commit suicide once, i chopped her thru the window & her head just rolled off her neck & fell outside.. it was great. so i dont agree with the "anti-climatic" agrument. besides, like others have already stated, its the king of slashers we are talking about here, it dont matter how ya dice em. it gives you more of a chance than a grab does, & ya cant always have that pocket knife to save your ass. save your own ass or somebody else's ass.. i think its funny how the players who complain about slashing are usually the ones who do all kindsa cheap shit ha ha HA

In situations where there's a whole group of counselors on you, head punch and choke are a good counter to it because of how instant it is. you do what you have to in order to win the game. slashing, quick grab kills are all legit ways of getting kills.

Sorry man but it’s actually more menacing slicing a machete across someone removing limbs as they scream in pain!

Some people just hate dying. They will bitch about it no matter how you killed them. Me personally, I enjoy dying. Means it was a good Jason that put in some work to kill me, so he deserves that reward of watching me die if he earned it. :) Makes no difference to me how it was done. If I'm dead it was the right way.

It's simple.  Because they want to use their pocket knives and make Jason look stupid.  Keep slashing if it works for you.  Anyone who gets mad at that has issues.

Only when your mom calls me over and tells me to bring the weed wacker.

 

Seriously.   Slashing people to death for no reason.   Is a bitch kill.

 

For example.   You got someone alone and limping.  Theres no real pressure to be anywhere.  The player is right next to a enviro kill.   And instead of grabbing him and pulling off a good kill you go for a quick slash kill.   That's a bitch kill.

Jasons job is to kill with style.   Not just kill.        He's a kill artist.

^These are the reasons I agree with.  

But anything outside of that is just a waste of a good kill.

Counterpoint: I've seen experienced players bait Jason into a grab, hit him with the PK, then spray and run off during the PK animation. 

To the OP, slashing is frowned upon because it's anti-climactic and boring. There's all these cool kills in the game, and you just ... sliced someone to death without any fanfare. Over time, the hate for it has gotten amped up by trolls and assholes who think it's Jason's sworn duty to die on their command and play the role of subservient bitch to their army of pocket knife-wielding Vanessas.

But I digress ...

Try to mix in some grab kills once in a while. But be aware and OK with the fact that there are times when you HAVE to slash or SHOULD slash, like:
• When you're fighting a group
• To try and slow down a pesky counselor
• To finish off someone you suspect has a PK (like any Vanessa, alone, late in the game)
• Just to troll an annoying opponent complaining about how you're slashing in any of the above scenarios

Kill how you want. Climatic or not, a kill is a kill. Not everyone you encounter in the game will be ideal to play with.

People who want a climatic experience can befriend players looking for the same.

People who don't have a kill preference can play with pretty much anyone.

There's so much more to this game than how one dies.

Bitch kills are bitch kills.  Its got nothing to do with me being into anything.

 

Like is said.  Theres a time and place for everything.     But I personally don't care for any excuses made.   This game has ton of cinematic kills for a reason.

 

The only exception is the head punch.   Due to the fact that head punches get bonus points for what happens to the head after the punch.
