The armor situation is getting... embarrassing

This thread again.  A male uncomfortable with females showing off their assets, so scared even they can't show it to a coworker which is even stranger.  I bet if males showed some muscles though or something similar, you would still be making this thread.

the new horse training outfit helped me out a bit, but I would still certainly love to see some armour that does not do the whole "protect everything other than my breasts and thighs" type junk

I gotta say though... I am not as "bothered" by this as some of you, and I also do not think a girl wanting to be half naked makes her "hookerish". I see where you are coming from, but comments like that... make me think some of you have worse issues to deal with than the game does

Now, I think options are great. If your character is attractive and wants to show off their assets, go for it! But wouldn't it also make sense to offer at least ONE costume for each class, just 1 out of the 4 or 5 each has, that is just the tiniest bit more badass, as opposed to skimpy and hookerish er, I mean, cutesy.

Just saying. Even as a straight dude, this is getting downright weird for me. I'm getting embarrassed to show this game off to coworkers.

That's all. Let the flaming begin.

inb4 I get called a prude.

 

No flaming needed. It's originally a Korean MMO, not that I'm saying there's not a bunch of American playerbase that doesn't like their characters more sexualized; but the Korean player base definitely likes their Waifus. We got the same costumes they did and perhaps with time we'll get more Americanized costumes, but for now you just have to deal with the costumes they got which are very sexualized for the female characters.

Sex sell, nothing you can do about it.  If things like these in a game bother you, avoid watching tv, don't go to shopping malls, beach, or sport events.

I see nothing wrong with this at all. Style of the armor and type of game.

There is a difference between showing off a little skin, and wearing a onesy diaper with a crotch zipper (Karlstein).

Let that sink in. I have a available to me: an adventurer's outfit with a long coat. You have available to you: a crotch zipper.

If my issue with that means I have psychological issues, I'm completely cool with being batshit insane. I'll just sit here and be crazy.

what's crazy is that America is way more puritanical and sensual than Korea at the same time. It's like we want a pure innocent slut that's a virgin but can ride like Aphrodite herself, but is innocent about her sluttiness that she covers up 25/7 except for when she's f*cking you.

I agree wholeheartedly. It didn't previously bother me when I only saw the options for my own female characters; I just thought ALL the costumes in the game suck, and that was that. Once I started to realize that males could get real armor, though - armor that looks properly adventurous and protective from the elements, good for traipsing around the world, and protective against rampant stabbity/slash from monsters... This really bugs me. So far I've only seen one or two skimpy armors for the guy characters (wizard and one of the barbarian armors, I think), and I feel cheated.

Sure, there are some "adventurer" style armor sets for females in the base game, but I'd like to get excited about a new costume for once.

There are plenty of female players who get tired of the costumes always being sexy/slutty, while the male versions are not. It isn't about being uncomfortable with women - it's about not always wanting jiggle vision lingerie models for the female versions of armor.

I do not think the karlstein outfit makes a girl look "like a hooker" though, I do not even think it is sexy

highlighting the sexual dimorphism is one thing, I made it clear I agree with you to a degree, but you took it to a really offensive level with the "hooker" term. And the fact that you crossed it out... I think you knew you were being offensive. Topic would be much more constructive if you kept talk of "whores" and "hookers" out of your OP.

I get the backlash- hormones, puberty, etc. I'm not suggesting they REMOVE the pixel porn that already exists. I'm just saying... damn man, at least an option lol. There isn't one for some of these classes. It's not like some of these classes can say "Oh, I'll choose to be covered" or "I'll choose show some skin". It's basically a choice between "Today I'm a go-go dancer" or "today I'm a showroom girl". No alternatives.

It feels like most of the women in the game are 1 strong breeze from wearing their birthday suits.

I don't even notice the jiggle, that's how important that feature is for me.  I only get a costume if I like the way it looks.  Now if you don't like the sexy/slutty style then you could just stay in the base armors the game offers until one of those pops into the cash shop down the road.  Although I imagine there won't be much variety.

Actually, no, I did not and still do not consider it offensive at all. Hate to say that the reality is that prostitutes DO exist in this world, and the way that they dress is tailored to illicit certain desires in the demographic they are targeting. I hate that this is an offensive fact to some, but there it is. 

I am sorry that the mention of a prostitute, or their attire, makes this thread irredeemable in your eyes, but I do not share your view.

Darn our Judeo-Christian values making sexuality taboo and something to be hidden. How dare you flaunt it like this, Korean Developers.

It would be a pretty huge help if those base armors could be made into costumes.You end up in a weird place of trying to juggle aesthetics and stats.

I'm not embarrassed, but as a maehwa it makes no sense for me to be prancing about in a summer dress fighting mobs. Be nice to have some fooking options to make it look like a sword slinging fighter.

I would not be offended if you pointed out that prostitutes tend to dress in a sexual manner

I am offended that you imply any girl who dresses in a manner to emphasize her sexuality is dressing "like a hooker"

An MMO has revealing female costumes.
In other news the sky is blue. 

Seriously just shut up. 

pointing a problem in a society is the first step to fix it, heck woman voting is a recent thing and wasn't the norm before too.

 

Off topic : can someone find the official venting thread about forum spammer ? I need it right now....
