*facepalm* Emblems

19 Nov

Taking a page out of One of Swords book I’m going to chat a little bit about the emblem creation tool in Black Ops. As you will notice, my creation is simple and non-offensive. Sadly I can’t say the same for many of the emblems I have come across in game.

Treyarch did an awesome thing by letting players use their creative skills and come up with their own emblems. Unfortunately with the amount of immature and insensitive players on this game this feature has become a breeding ground for genitals, racism, and hate images.

I came across a player the other day with a swastika as his emblem. I was caught so off guard I had to rage quit the game. Not rage because of the actual game, but rage that someone would be so insensitive to actually make that their emblem. It blew my mind!

There is nothing funny about racist and hate emblems. Why anyone would even think to create certain images in their emblem? Same question goes for the sexually based emblems. Explain to me why it’s amusing because to me it is highly offensive.

I am well aware that this is an M-rated game, and if stuff like that doesn’t bother you that’s fine, move on with the next game. But me, I am very happy that there is a “report player” feature. Sadly I use it often. It’s rare that I go a few games without using it. Enough reports and players receive bans from using the emblem creator. May not seem like much but at least the community won’t have to look at the filth you might call a “hilarious emblem”

Do me a favor. If you have an offensive emblem, change it. It’s not funny. You are immature. GROW UP!

    i think its pretty stupid that people find it funny to use racist things on there emblems. Although i got apperently reported for having the Sickle and Hammer as my emblem i got a message from a moderator telling me to change it so i they wouldn’t have to lock me out…I was in outrage because there was at least 10 other genital pictures in the lobby and all i had was the sickle and hammer…tell me how im offensive plz?

    I have to say what an amazing emblem you have there. I keep it simple with just dice and a cup. In other words, Yahtzee! Why do people parade genitals all over the game, you wouldn’t do that in real life unless you’re crazy. People come to play video games to relieve stress and have fun not watch pornography or be offended with racism or bigotry. +2 for you, bowski.
