Editorial: I’ve had enough of your Black Ops II emblem nonsense

Oneofswords: It’s that time of year again, where the Call of Duty players have gotten comfortable enough with the mechanics and maps of the game that they start turning their attention to user-created content. And beyond the war on maps like Turbine and Hijacked, there exists a secret, shadow war…a war over emblems. I’m tired of this particular war, so I’m ending it, right now. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

What did you expect from the userbase?

In WWII they put emblems on planes and bombs. In COD its not hurting anyone, so why not.

People just want to complain over nothing.
I have a dominican flag as my emblem but sometimes I don a haitian flag for the lulz.

Oneofswords(Dan Amrich) does say some interesting things and i agree with him on this one. I don't easily get offended, even by penis swastikas (lol) but i can see how that's inappropriate. I would like to see a gallery of the top rated user emblems sort of like the picture they used in the article. Some of those were amazing

Some of them are quite nicely made and pretty awesome, but some are extremely offensive.

I couldn't make a decent Emblem if my life depended on it.

Why not integrate Facebook accounts in multiplayer games? FB plagues everything else.

I say if you don't like it play another game.
It's that easy.
2pacalypsenow  +   1064d ago
Yeah cuz if you spent $60 on a game you should play something else

It's pretty stupid when I see a pig rapeing a horse that's rapeing a human.

Horse love is never consensual; they always say "neigh"

It's the same tired trick. Make something original instead of being a boring idiot.
jjb1981  +   1065d ago
One would think with all the creativity, time and effort that someone might create something great. Instead the emblems are either really cheesy, yes cheesy, or something pornographic.

I kind of don't see anything wrong with CoD emblems. I mean an emblem is supposed to represent you and since most people playing CoD are dicks it makes sense to have one as their emblem.

All I ever see is Pikachu, Wolverine, asses, squirting peens, and boobs.

My Captn America looks terrible but at least it's original.
MRMagoo123  +   1064d ago
I have seen a few captain americas so not that original. OT tho the fact that a large portion of the players are kids not all but most explains the emblems then top that off with the adults that act like kids and you are destined to find mostly childish ones.
InTheLab  +   1064d ago
captain America isn't original but MY captain is. the pikachu and Wolverine every uses are from the YouTube tutorials.
JeffGUNZ  +   1062d ago
Almost all the people who play COD are kids? How do you know this? Did you take a poll of the millions of people playing world wide? Give me a break.

hey man if it bothers you that much, quit the game. I think its all about freedom of expression. Nice article tho.
ChipChipperson  +   1064d ago
Get over it. People are such wimps nowadays." WAAAAAH, I'm offended and scared of sex, guns, and immaturity". Yeah, dummies act like racist, homophobic, and obnoxious assh***s in this and other online communities. This game has been around for what, 5-6 installments within the franchise now since the beginning of this gen of gaming? It's not surprising and it won't stop. Just stop letting it bother you that much. You'd think there would be more important matters bothering you in life, but no, a stupid emblem of a penis f**king a horse with cum spewed all over it does?

A carrot on a stick,best emblem in this particular situation.
legendof117  +   1064d ago
No offense to anyone here or the writer of this article, but this guy is a pussy.

I mean come on... half the people who put emblems like this are looking to get a rise out of people. Especially people like this.

Yes, there are emblems that shouldn't be used, but the ones that are sexual.... let's get serious. Sex is a common part of human life. People are just scared to talk about it. I chuckle when I see these. Some of them are actually really artistic.

This game is meant for 17+. If you play mature games and can't handle sex; then don't play.

Plain and simple.

Article is 100% wrong, the game is M rated, and is about MURDERING 1000's of people with all kinds of weapons, knives, handguns, expolsives

and you're CRYING LIKE LITTLE A B!TCH about vagina and penis pictures

get real man, i bought the game, it gave me tools to create th8ings of my choosing, therefore i can create that which i choose to, if you find that being online and seeing boobs and weiners makes you feel icky offline, play local games with your amish friends

personally i don't even use the stupid emblem editor, but holy crap some of the things people make has made me laugh my a$$ off

there are so many flaws in this article and your logic, freedom of speech does NOT mean its free until it infringes on someone elses freedom, that would be STUPID, could you imagine that,

"conan o'brien is infringing on my freedom, he said pooty butt on my tv that i own that is never allowed to offend me ever"

you have the FREEDOM not to play the game if it offends you, you don't have the RIGHT to play the game and never be offened, who gives a $h!t if your offeneded, deal with it, grow thicker skin, or by all means, excersise you FREEDOM to not play!

this stuff has gone on since '96. come on.
Tetsujin  +   1064d ago
I've seen some people play, and I've seen some emblems that were good and required talent, and the other 99%...

However I see it like this;

Inappropriate? Yes, however I wouldn't make an article about it unless it was directly targeting a nationality/religion

Offensive? There's a system to report people
