The Wilhelm Franke character will be renamed, but EA also insisted that he's not actually a Nazi anyway.
I'd rather see some new God damn maps then worry about some epic characters fucking name be the same as somebodies else. We are like 8 months into this "live service".
LOL yep i agree
Wow..BF V players and you guys arent up to fluff on what came out today? https://youtu.be/zVy9_DyIos...
They released a new trailer with a bunch of new maps hours ago.
Not to mention that the anti-fascist was probably a commie anyway, so people are just wasting time splitting hairs over nothing.
He wasn't, but then again you don't care much for facts in this affair, do you?
OMFG what a bunch of damn sensitive crybabies.Its a freaking game FFS by this notion.We should stop using Hitler&Stalin to portray them since they killed hundreds of people.And rename them to mini moustache guy and long moustache guy.
No I think they are saying its matter-of-fact mistake. Nothing more. They aren't freaking out. That would be you lol. Calm down. It would be the equivalent of naming a KKK character MLK Jr. It wouldn't work and would be awkward and they would obviously want to change it if it did happen. It would become political where that is unwanted and unnecessary. .
Calm down, Tiger.
Wilhelm is a very common German name. It's a variation of the name William. Wilhelm II was the last german emperor, and ruled Germany until close to the end of WW1, and it's isn't uncommon for many to name their offspring after who's in charge, although the practice is not as popular as it once was. Franke is also a very common German surname to this day. Why is it people seem to think that every potential correlation means an absolute correlation? I mean, if John Smith was a famous civil rights activist, would using that name for a racist criminal in some form of media immediately mean disrespect to the real life person behind it? @Eon It probably wouldn't work in media, but Martin, and King are also both very common names, and chances are, there are going to be some racists with that name. A WWII anti-fascists is a lot more of an obscure reference though, and unless someone pointed out the correlation, I doubt anyone, even in Germany, would have likely noticed. I'm sure if we really looked into it, we'd also find some actual Wilhelm Franke's in the nazi ranks. MLK is a much more prominent figure and is one of the most influential people of modern times.
But let’s be honest here, most people that fought and apposed actual nazis would be labeled “fascist nazi scum” nowadays anyway.
You got a point. Many of the people who fought and wiped out the Nazis were communists.
General Patton: "We've defeated the wrong enemy".
Kinda different when you’re a conscript.
Certainly many were low down dirty commies, but in the west, most were Classical Liberals and Conservatives, which is who I believe Dixiedevil was referring to.
Communism and Nazism are very different on ideological levels. Communism isn't inherently "evil" in what it supposedly achieves, just the way it works out tends to be heavily corrupted, and it's goes heavily against the ideals of things like capitalism. Socialism has some things similar to communism, but their practical application is different, and socialism doesn't preclude capitalistic ventures.
Communism killed over 100 million people last century and is absolutely the road to hell.
Honestly I hate both ideologies so much. Morally bankrupt, rights restrictions and they both eventually lead to more disaster and systematic massacres. I had hoped that the 21st century would forget these but they've simply returned to the political front of every major world government.
@ dragonscale dude over 100 million natives died when the Americas were invaded, how many have died since? Millions as a result of 'the war on terror' A couple of hundred thousand in Japan due to nukes. That's just off the top of my head never mind the other 200+ years America have been at war. But nah, communism is 'absolutely the road to hell' 😂😂😂 It's not the politics that are the problem it's the dictators, the oppressors and the war criminals in charge that are the problem.
depends what side the coin you are on
Well BF5 is not historically accurate so it fits right in.
Because they didn’t give a shit about history in this game lol. That was obvious from day one.
Get woke go broke EA
Its funny, why didnt PC gamer do an article on EA who attempted to rewrite history of an actual mission completed by four men who gave their lives for it by having a young girl instead do the mission in this dumpster fire.
when you want to do an hystorical correct game but you have the 5th grade
So? Why does it matter? Everyone is so easily offended these days. It’s pathetic!
