Why is the Slasher named Fencer now? Slashermakes better sense due to it's color, the fact that it can "slahed"="schlagen"=Slasher=Schläger.
Take the enemy under continuous fire / pressure build up
It actually makes less sense to name it Fencer, considering all it's both aesthetic and practical properties.

Under a Slasher you can at least imagine something, but what should be a Fencer?
Besides, the name "Fencer" sounds pretty, well how should I say it; Gay!

Slasher was the master of the drive-by assault.

Fencer has to sort of stop and poke away at range.

I can sort of see why the name fits. What I would like to see is an upgrade on Fencer that a player can toggle for a small amount (eg 50 metal) which allows Fencer to fire while moving. Then it can be called Slasher!

Fencer:

- Shoots a lot of stabby missiles; similar to a swordfighter doing a lot of stabby movements with his sword, also known as fencing
- Shoots the same type of missile as Picket, which is a name for a type of fence
- Likes to form lines and fence enemies into killzones

Slasher:

- <weird german word soup>
- "Fitting color"
- "Not gay"

You're proposing a perfectly accurate zero-overkill long-range skirmisher for 200 metal.

For me fencing feels much more like recluse - go a lot back and forth, and hits (missles) go all over the place and many times miss the target. And definitely doing a hit while stopped/stationary is the exception not the rule.

OT hope we don't get another set of renames (even if it is back to original)

With all the old farts around still using the old names and generally being the more vocal players on a team, I consciously have to make the effort to use the new ones, even though the name change had happened before I even started playing (I think I do genuinely prefer roach to snitch though). It's an interesting experiment on cultural evolution (or lack thereof) though.

More semantic quibbling please! I like reading it.

xivender "to slash" ist eher schlitzen, nicht schlagen. slasher macht keinen sinn, die raketen sind nicht scharfkantig.

explanation to our non-german-speaking-lobfellows: .....not so important....

DErankXivender could you do me a favor and clean up after the down vote storm spaz out you did to me, since I removed the one down vote I did to your OP?
