Anything related to the duel/comp side should have been benched to fix the main game. The devs at this point seem like their hitting the whole eyes bigger then their belly point

Duel and comp ARE the main game

Would you be fine if the default was female black and you had the option to enable and disable everything else?

I bought this game because 1, I liked chivalry a lot but hated the gay ballerina dead spot hit moves, and 2, this game was advertised as a medieval combat game set in EUROPE, not fucking Sub-Saharan Africa. Anyone who says that Mordhau is not set in Europe is disingenuous, none of the armour comes from outside of Europe, none of the maps are set in non European settings, none of the weapons comes from outside of Europe either, with the exception of the spear which is a universal weapon. Since I have to spell it out for you, the population of Europe is, white people! Surprise! Its shocking I know.

Heres a lesson in basic psychology since you apparently have autism and don't understand emotions, people like to play as and against people who look like them. To enhance player's experiences they should be able to have toggles to only play as people they want to and see people they want to.

So you want this game to pander to your racism. ok.

I'm in favour of a toggle, but on that is labelled 'Character customisation on/off'. Should you disable it, you remove all aesthetic customisation from the game and can only see default clothing and avatar settings so everyone looks the same and no 'darkies' or women. You want to be racist like that, fine, but you opt out of the privilege of seeing other people's customisations and your own ability to do so to, seeing as you can't play nice with other people.

Why should I not have the choice to see whatever I want to see? The devs promised a toggle for women and minorities and I expect to see it. You want to force people to see nonwhites and women in the game, why should they be forced to see that? People should have the choice to see whatever they please to.

Bro this fictional mercenary company couldn't possibly employ people with dark skin or a vagina bro it's impossible

Name a single mercenary company in Europe that has been recorded to employ any significant number of darkies or women. Pro tip you wont because it doesn't fucking exist. Inb4 muh shield maidens

It's almost like it's fictional or something

Ok since its a fictional game lets add dragons, faeries, and ogres, that would make the game much more fun. Oh wait it doesn't because it keeps a slight grasp of realism. Stop with the school zone speed iq takes.

Battlefield V's death had has nothing to do with female or black characters.

You're pretty out of touch.

"The first Battlefield V trailer from last week's big reveal now has more than 320,000 "dislikes," which is far more than how many "likes" it has, and many viewers are expressing their opinions in some harsh ways in the video's comments section. It's a similar situation to the dislike campaign against Call of Duty's Infinite Warfare reveal two years earlier. Battlefield V has already seen its fair share of backlash before the trailer's debut. The marketing campaign for this installment focuses on female characters, even going so far as to feature a woman on the cover art. Some gamers were upset with this inclusion, threatening to abandon the series if the female players were included. A hashtag was inspired by the backlash entitled "#NotMyBattlefield." DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson responded with a promise that the female characters would, under no circumstances, be removed from play."

Also, your arguments about the game being realistic are misplaced. You quoted the store page earlier, and it does state that it is a fictional but realistic world. That means that it is a world that is plausible, but entirely fictional. That means that you cannot have things like orcs and other fantasy elements, but female warriors, seeing as they existed IRL, are quite plausible in this fictitious world.

"Realistic" doesn't just mean "plausible", it means "the quality or fact of representing a person or thing in a way that is accurate and true to life."

Whether it's popular to admit it or not, we all know women are much physically weaker, slower, and more fragile than men, and this fact has lead them to be exceedingly rare sights on the front lines of battle throughout history, even to the modern day where fighting is just pulling a trigger. To really put into scope how uncommon it is, each 200 years, you might get one mention (often part myth- i.e. Gülnar Hatun) of a female fighter, across all the countries around the globe where millions of men were fighting on a frequent basis.

Even the most generous possible estimate would put male:female participation in medieval battles at a 1,000,000:1 ratio. Because, you know, they didn't want to die against much stronger opponents and nobody wanted to send them out to die.

So to see an entire group of skinny big-hipped waifus with tiny upper bodies and no visible muscle, optimized for sex appeal by their 13 year old players, churning their way through the battlefield? Not only is that less "plausible" than even Sauron armor, that is definitely not "true to life."

Lastly, to pretend that Mordhau isn't meant to be based on the real medieval Europe is disingenous; almost every single piece of gear is a copy of a real, historical object, the whole game is named after a German fighting technique and half of the game has real-world names like "Italian cuirass" for fuck's sake.They gave every indication possible that it is heavily Earth-based.

So you've failed to convince me that it's realistic, and you're definitely going to fail at convincing everyone else who has an issue with it. Which is why a toggle should happen, because it would please everyone and there's no good reason not to.

Seeing as you cannot understand what they meant by 'fictional, yet realistic world' as you are hell bent on it being as realistic as possible, why are you getting so worked up about some women in the game but you are quite happy to face-off against a caveman, or a tomato, or Shrek?

Your argument doesn't hold up with how Mordhau is full of ridiculously unrealistic mechanics, behaviour and content. There is literally no realism or immersion argument beyond the pseudo-realistic-but-still-very-arcade combat and some castles.

If we were discussing adding black people or women warriors to KCD, I would be very much on your side, as that game is based in a specific period of history in a very specific and painstakingly realistic recreation of Bohemia. Mordhau is FAR, FAR from that level of realism, which would support a strong case against their addition and there is literally nothing that can be presented to give a solid reason why, in this make-believe world, that women and black people can't be added.

Grow the fuck up and stop being such a big baby about women being in an arcade melee slasher.

Heres a lesson in basic psychology since you apparently have autism and don't understand emotions, people like to play as and against people who look like them. To enhance player's experiences they should be able to have toggles to only play as people they want to and see people they want to.

Another strawman from the sophist, are you just going to make up imaginary boogeyman arguments to knock over all day? Nobody said lawsuit, but it is grounds for a refund from Steam, and I don't want to do that.

No, it isn't.

If a game promises a feature and doesn't deliver you should be entitled to a refund.

Leave the game as it is and send a message. You're not racists or sexists because your medieval game doesn't feature out of place people of color and women.

Some people are of the impression females and darker skin tones will be added as some sort of apology or capitulation to the recent hitpiec- I mean articles that have been written about the game. This is not at all the case. It has been known since 2015 that those aspects of character customisation will be part of the game.

Instead they are capitulating on the switch to turn it off, which was promised alongside with it, until the article.

The popular of all games on steam generally go down after launch mordhau on the other hand, by comparison, is holding onto its player base very well. it just needs more armor, weapons, and maps to be released over time, all games are going to lose their player base to newer ones as they come and players are split up between a growing library of games this is fine. Mordhau competes very well and has a community of people worth playing with the problem with this is its a lie told by people who are trying to get the power to censor speech they dislike......

Good post from you for a change, well, right up until that point where you went full crazy again.

Have sex

This all comes down to the fact that this is a very competitive game, even in the less skill based modes like frontline and horde, this is exaggerated by the fact that the best gamemode (duels) is the most skill based. Players who have been playing since the beginning will almost always be better than new players, and most people don't want to or don't have the time to put into the game to git gud. Chivalry's solution to this was lobbies for people who were only under level 15, which could work very well in Mordhau.

devs wiping forehead sweat away with a napkin after thinking "our community isn't that bad" as their forum slowly gets overtaken by ppl lobbying for racist slurs in a video game

We are gamer activists, The first step to genocide is making our people unable to speak our language, the next step they start putting us in camps. if we can't use ethnic slurs the gamer people will be in camps. Let us speak our language in peace friend. it's important to our safety survival and happiness and hurts no one.

@slouchmeister back me up as the leader of our local gamer chieftain.

i can't tell if you're irony poisoned or making fun of irony poisoning, which means you're probably a good poster

As leader of the gamer tribe, Mordhau I say that the first step to our genocide is the censure of our gamer words, such as nιgger, fag, and others. These are words of peace, they demonstrate our desire for peace with our neighbors, our soil, and ourselves. The United States Government and certain other elements in our society seek to forbid our gamer words to further oppress us. First they take away our gamer words, next they demonize us, then we are in camps. My ancestors have bestowed many visions upon me of my gamer brethern forced to flee from their lands and settle new ones where we are not allowed to game. This must stop.

These guys are breaking rules already in place, and instead of proper moderation we're expected to just mute them ourselves. A proper reporting system would go a long way. That way the problem doesn't persist. Muting doesn't make the abuser stop.

Why are you using words like "abuser", you're playing this up to way more than it is. Grow some skin Jesus.

Funny, a million random individuals buy the same game > now they are a community apparently.

...that's kinda how that works, yeah.

Which the developers of said game are in charge of admonishing or endorsing each and every position this group holds apparently, or face the consequences of the left wing propaganda machine.

Being criticized for allowing racism and other extremist ideas to run rampant = left wing propaganda apparently. Classic.

Let's say that tomorrow, a large, high-profile group of players in a large multiplayer game - we'll use EVE Online - created a literal nazi clan and started hunting down players they deemed untermensch and mercilessly griefing them. Do the developers of EVE have a responsibility to take action in this situation? Absolutely. These players are ruining the image of the game and ruining the experience of other players.

No, the devs dont. How about instead of being acting like a spineless pussy you stand up for yourself instead of whining to the devs. You can mute literally anyone you want, act like a man and take some responsibility.

In light of recent publicity on the state of MORDHAU’s community, we would like to discuss our stance on toxicity and the topic of gender and race in our game.

First and foremost, Triternion does not, nor have we ever, had plans to add a customization option that would force a white male default. This is an absurd idea that stems from a misunderstanding in a recent interview by PC Gamer with two of our artists. These artists, both uninvolved with character development went into a verbal interview with minimal PR experience and ended up answering some of the questions in a misleading way, which combined with a lack of context, led to some very controversial statements. Again, we at Triternion do not, nor have we ever had any plans to implement any kind of ethnicity toggle on potential future character ethnicity customization additions.

Imagine making a medieval europe combat simulator and being surprised when people want to play as the people who were active in medieval europe combat, white males.
