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!
