I think he is talking about confederate flag being removed, as this symbol is removed from, for example, Mississippi state flag and a lot of other places.Its the quest feature when you accept a quest. Just find the right quest and either finish it or cancel it.
...which has happened before in the gaming industry. I believe it was Treyarch (one of the Call of Duty developers) gave up on using Swastikas in their games (Call of Duty World War 2 had no Swastikas f.ex) - they also renamed their mod "Nazi Zombies" to just "Zombies".It would be like requesting the removal of a Nazi flag or symbols from a game placed in a WW2 period.
well, everyone is free to do what they like with their product, and we're free to play their games or not. imho, this is just plain stupid. ok, don't have nazis and swastikas, but then don't say the game is related to WW2....which has happened before in the gaming industry.

I don't expect historical accuracy from games, movies, novels, cartoons... this is based on the wild west and US history, so I guess the confederation flag has a place in it. it's not like we're playing slave owners here, that would be something else and totally unacceptable.Also this game is not really a historically accurate one
I suppose so... best if they delete it all from the history books too. it's offensive! [/sarcasm off]I suppose if enough people will cry about it then they'll have to change it

If you want control over a game then make one and manage it. You say that is something else? Really?
as far as I know - nothing, I don't think there's any list of forbidden names. it's up to other players to report such names and for moderators to ban accounts. just as if you'd create a character named Adolf Hitler, for example, use offensive images for your town flag, or name a town in an offensive way.. been there, done that, got the towns renamed and people banned.What is stopping someone from selecting a name like ...
Joshua John Ward,
common sense of other players will stop him. their free will will stop him. you think someone like this would be able to attract a serious number of people to his alliance? he's not coming to your house with a gun to force you to do any of these things. if he is - call the police, they'll stop him, I hope.So Mr Ward registers a town in the western game and an alliance for fort competitions. He runs his town and the alliance like the following.
He dictates that everyone must actively fort fight, pick berries, duel when instructed etc whatever he decides or he kicks them out. In chats he calls his town members or newbies his slaves and attempts to rule over his alliance for world domination. - like anything like this has never happened lol
Who is going to stop him? You?
I am not as you wrote trying to pick a fight. However we do have a short history in this forum and from the beginning none of it has been very good. I blame you for that. From the beginning you have accused me of attempting to be insulting but the fact is I've always attempted to make my comments based more on the context of the topic, not like you have done focused on personal attacks!now, with all that being said, it's obvious that you're trying to pick a fight. again. it could either be because you failed to understand a few simple sentences I wrote (which is really bad), or you did understand, but you try on purpose to construct a nonsense story from it (which is worse). in any case, I have no desire to feed your need for attention in any way, you'll have to find someone else.
Should a confederate flag be included inside a game? I don't see any valid reason it shouldn't be. If so should also the term "master of the west" title be removed? Where is the line drawn? I have observed aggressive self centered players. It might be true that it is common online anywhere in games. I'm not sure. However some players are very controlling and want things to be only their way. Writing that however does not suggest that every player has this kind of disposition.The flag isn't particularly offensive to me, nor is the nazi flag, assuming a historical context, however they are symbols of hate and white supremacy, so i'd happily never see one again.
prove itthat, btw. is how not trying to pick a fight looks like
I don't know mate , it's been a pretty damn while since I last logged in here (I accidentally typed in the right password today), I thought my account here has been deleted long time ago when they cleaned up, but I gotta say I enjoy your posts in ingame forums (Arizona forums,you probably know what I'm talking about) , your threads contain facts and common sense all over them, glad to see you don't let bs go through on this forum too.oh yeah? really? says who? are you going to stop me?
that, btw. is how not trying to pick a fight looks like according to some forum members here. ahhh, made me chuckle a bit at least
I have suggested a parrot as raiding animal for Pirate event..and keg of rum as product, YAARR HARR HARR They thanked me for a good laugh that lasted for a week lol but No, thanks no the idea didn't fit the game . Nowadays game is far from original idea so I agree with what you said.Also this game is not really a historically accurate one (seeing how idiotic all the items added in the past 5 years are, like cats/dogs for "riding" animals or lightsabers), so I suppose if enough people will cry about it then they'll have to change it
