OP  5/17/13 7:32:10 PM#21
FYI, kidkiller was already taken so I had to settle for kiddiekiller. It is the reason that the witch got exiled. Seems a fitting name for starting the path of exile.

OP: I understand what you are saying about the lore can be more offensive and gruesome than your name would allow. Consider this, most evil people don't name themselves anyway. Hannibal didn't call himself Hannibal the Cannibal for example. We all know that in most game lore Orcs murder, rape and pillage... but no game (well that cares about it's player base) is going to let you name your Orc "Elfraper" regardless of the lore. Lore items can be quickly glanced at and forgotten but players names will pop up on chats etc repeatedly.

I think it is a tad over-dramatic to quit a game because they wouldn't let you use your name. Also, be honest with yourself, is it that fantastic of a name anyway?

I would like to give an opinion on this post, but if I agree I will offend people who disagree. While if I disagree my comment will be seen as inflammatory. Either way I will get banned by this site full of the most delicate flowers in online gaming. Ban people for giving honest opinions... beautiful. Unfortunately I still like the articles.

It's OK for the developer to have it in the lore but not for me to have it in my charcter name? Hypocrites

/facepalm.

You're calling the GM clueless?

Reminds me of the guy throwing a tantrum in another game because they got banned for rping a rapist.

they don't exist in the same plane. Lore's purely virtual and so is the character. The TOS/EULA impacts the player, who is real. The EULA/TOS have no power over the character.

 

at no point does your character pick his name. You pick it for him.

 

That's why they can't be equal, they're not comparable.

That's insane logic. How is hearing spoken words affecting a real player less than a name that has to be read? Did I not really hear the lore, or was it virtual sound? 

On launch day for open beta I thought the same as OP and made a character with a reference to that lore also. Those are 2 clear examples of how lore affected to END USER. 

Character name is : Eatyokids if anyone wants to verify I can also post a screeny since I went to the website and it shows my characters there.

It's not that difficult.

Should just lock this thread before someone really loses it.  Sometimes I hate that kids can play these games and post opinions.  It is NEVER acceptable to glorify anything remotely close to a child murderer...seriously are some of you that developmentally delayed???

 

I'll just have to ignore this thread - please lock this crap down.

Never said glorify it. Was just giving an example of something that the OP could've done if he were creative and wanted to stick with the theme. But thanks for flaming anyway.

It's a sad day indeed when a family is too afraid of reprisals to publicly thank somebody for saving their lives.

Very glad to see that someone else listened to (reading was another option since it captions what the class says when you select it) the lore provided by the developers and, like me, created their character in the spirit of said provided lore.

Naming a character in that manner is offensive. It makes all your arguments moot.

you want it explained?

 

you created a HERO. not a VILLAIN.

villains go and kill kids. heroes usualy don't - they tend to save em.

 

there. explained. thanks for the dicussion ^^

Wha, Wha? He didn't create anything. He's choosing a PREMADE character, with a PREMADE background. That character in question(the one who wouldn't have taken the kids if...) is the one he will playing.

Your arguement is basically this:

The "witch" is a hero because despite burning children, her name doesn't reflect that. Had she said, made her name BurnerofKiddos, then her "actions" then take substance, but not before.  

Or is that over your 2 inch head?

Eatyokids?

Offensive only to the uneducated. It's a Mike Tyson reference.  Or it could have sexual meaning. You know, offending someone isn't really a level of concern for me unless it does any actual damage. I can't worry about what one may or not be offended by all the time or I'd never get to say anything. Rest assured that just about everything you say could be taken as offensive by someone somewhere.

I don't see what the problem is.  It sounds like you were clueless about the rules and the GM had to inform you.  Seriously, just change your name.

KiddieKiller.

Eatyokids could go either way. For all I know you're talking about baby goats. However if it's banned it's banned. The feigned outrage is puerile.

It says taken...maybe she took the kids to perform some ritual and sent them back cursed...

No where in the part of the lore you're speaking of does it say she killed the kids.  You're trying to get technical with the " letter of the law " so there you go.  You're name assumes something they didn't actually say.
