Re: Show off your Nationality


Ok in all seriousness, nice thought but it opens a can of worms, definitely breaks immersion, and nationalism generally induces negative emotions. We might get along but many countries still hate each other for one reason or another.

Bad idea. I have enough contact with Russian nazi's IRL, no need to extend it into my favorite game.

I like the idea of personalization, but let's steer clear of present-day flags. I guess I could see an argument for futuristic soldiers sporting their lineage on a muted 2-tone flag symbol, but I'd hate to see big bright flags ruining the appearance of the sweet armor they put so much work into.

You're not decorating your car's bumper or your Alienware laptop, after all.

If there are custom graphics, all manner of uncouth things will be seen. They best have a robust policy on dealing with it.


(Also, nationalism is not necessarily racism, though it can be. Nation and race are different concepts. Though I find both flawed views to some extents.)

What difference does the flag make? The second they start typing everyone knows they are russians anyways.

Because it's a shame. Those people are not worthy of wearing this flag. But yet here they are, priding on their nationality, while they're nothing more than a brainless idiots, causing people to scorn my motherland.

So, NO THANK YOU!

I think that RL flags would break immersion, so I don't support the idea. On a stat page on the other hand I don't see why this would be a problem. What stops any of you to put your national flag into your sig after all?

Think of the comedy and grief potential of people who die or lose an objective to a guy draped in the glorious American flag. It would just make all the non-Americans jealous of our country writhe in anger, and make the self-loathing Americans froth and vomit.

It's like giving half the PS2 population the finger constantly. It would be glorious!

Yeah sure it might break immersion and really has no viable reason to ever be in the game, but think of the grief it will cause!
Ahh, in that case The Enclave should DEFINITELY play a euro server.
