You can be banned for swearing in a game that has swears in single player dialog?! O.o

I think Black Ops 2 is going to set records ... for number of people banned ... and number of gamers that leave the franchise!

Hmm single play swearing is is different from people on multiplayer and you know it. It's war people will swear.

Cursing for the purpose of driving the story is different than people degrading other humans online.

I know it's dumb. I remember getting banned in Socom 4 for swearing and the characters themselves swear and call each other dumb asses when players shoot each other.

Ever since cod became flooded with kids they've been real strict

All this bully talk about banning people is just to promote the game. Like saying they will create a fair and polite environment to play.

MY GOD! If people didnt swear in CoD I dont think I would of enjoy the game so much. Its part of the game to laugh of some guy going into rage mode and insulting everyone else when he dies.

I think the initial warning is a scare tactic... I don't see them banning everyone for swearing, but if people are verbally attacking others, they have the rule in place. I don't care if someone says the F bomb, but if they are calling someone else a F-bomb - N-word or something like that, they need to be banned to show that it's not good social behavior no matter the age.

I wish they'd bad people who play DJ with an open mic. They need to be perma banned. No one wants to hear their crappy music over a crappy headset.

So because you are 17+ you should be able to say racist rude ignorant comments to other human beings?

Or are we gonna be real about it and understand there are children playing and that being rude isn't okay no matter what the age on the back of the game says.

Q. So because you are 17+ you should be able to say racist rude ignorant comments to other human beings?

Who said anything saying racist rude ignorant comments to other human beings? The point is the Black Ops II game itself includes course language.

ESRB: Black Ops II

"Content descriptors: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Drugs"

This means players can be banned for using the same words that are in the game.
MikeMyers  +   1185d ago
I think common sense goes a long ways. The odd swear word isn't likely to get you banned, telling people to go **** themselves and being aggressive will. We all want to enjoy our games, both online and offline, without being badgered by some foul-mouthed gamer who can't control themselves.

Besides, if your vocabulary is made up of mostly cuss words then perhaps a microphone isn't what you need. Maybe going back to school and educating yourself is a more important path for you than getting the most kill streaks.

Nobody will be banned for swearing, incredible amounts of racal abuse, perhaps.

Good, I am sick and tired of children and idiots behaving like little scumbags and thinking it is okay. It is about time that this stuff starts getting regulated. Companies trusted people to do the right thing and they behaved like assholes.

The reality is that the majority of people just want to play online and have fun. But a few stupid morons ruin things by being sexist, racist, homophobic, and all around immature. Basically, your internet tough guys that would never behave that way in public.

I do feel sorry for the people that are going to get into trouble for just playing around with their friends and the wrong person joins their game and gets offend.

I would say that there is way more kids playing this game than adults
AdmiralSnake  +   1185d ago
Looks like I'll just turn my mic off, because I know I'll swear if I see morons do dumb crap. Especially the idiots who play OBJECTIVES with the full intent of just getting kills and put absolutely NO EFFORT in doing the damn objectives.

MY Advice COD PLAYERS! You wanna be a kill whore only ? Kill confirmed and Team Death Match is there for your kind, stay away from Game modes like Domination and Demolition.
Oschino1907  +   1185d ago
Got to love though when those kinds of players yell and flip shit on you because you are actually trying to play the mode and win the game. Have been in more then one match where the teams only goal was to spawn trap the other team and camp at the lines of sight leading out of or to the objective. Or in Kill Confirmed even where people scream to not pick up tags cause they are trying to get a MOAB.

I don't understand the reasoning behind it. Where is the satisfaction in steamrolling teams just to boost your stats and ruin their experiance? I have left groups and deleted "friends" over it before in multiple games. I don't have any fun knowing its going to be 200-0 in Headquarters and just camping the objective for 15-20min. Just wipe the other team down and move to the next map or group and actually you know LOOK for a CHALLENGE and not another group of scrub randoms.

Funny part though is when confronted most will admit that they can't stand when others do it to them and that they either rage quit or leave the lobby in search of another because its NO FUN and you feel cheated on the losing side of it. Yet in their mind it's still cool and shows their uber skills when they do it.

Some are worse then others though, I have known and played with people who leave games the team is winning, sometimes even dominating just because their K/D is not at or above their average or they aren't having their way with the other team. Like they don't know how to play against any real competition or suck up a ok/bad game for the sake of the team. The only way they can play is when it's crap teams and groups of random scrubs.

I guess I am just one of the few people who try to play with atleast a loose set of moral values. Like not steamrolling teams after the match is already "won". Not verbally abusing the other team after handing them a crushing loss (unless they were talking smack pre game) and instead commend them for effort and a willingness to stick around for more. Or not using the game in an unintended manner just to boost my stats and ruin your experiance.

I play for the win and for the team, not stats and personal glory. The latter two are great, but only when earned by doing the first two things. Not by taking them and making them your main objective.

Bans day one, and the weeks that follow after launch. =P
FreakyFox  +   1185d ago
And while they are at it ban the people who sit their playng the game while a baby is screaming for food or atention.

Aside from that , somthing should be put in on the stats on how many times you were muted, so you can reflect on that.

Then again i bet most of them cant/dont even read the stats.
Psycho_Mantis  +   1185d ago
What the fuck?? I cant fucking swear? But what if i get pissed off and it just slips out? Shit.... >_>
SOULJER  +   1185d ago
Better ban my 12 year old nephew NOW. Because he will swear every curse word you ever heard. Then he will make some up. He will say he's your real father, and change your sex. He's a little monster when he plays that game. Walk into the room while he's playing, and his whole demeanor changes. Blame his dumb a$$ father. He's been buying him that game ever year.
strigoi814  +   1185d ago
Lol i guess a lot here swear most of the time while playing shooting games
ChocolateGiddyUp  +   1184d ago
I kind of like Treyarch, but I don't think they understand their audience.

Just deliver a fun game...don't try to be the internet police.
