Seriously... Is there a way to turn off guild flags?

Why would it change? Because you're here throwing a little ----- fit? Please. Seriously, how much of a shitter are you that you get offended by a picture of a -----ing politician. Absolutely pathetic.

I'll ask the same thing I've asked elsewhere: Why do you care if some people decide to turn off troll emblems on their clients?

these siege flags are the most immersion breaking thing i've ever seen, and not in a fun way.

Because having that flag wave in your face everytime you enter my city is a political victory. Everytime you see that flag, something inside you ticks, and maybe the server will finally grow enough balls to actually contest us.

There is a reason why in most Games irl Porn, Religious AND Politic Content  isn´t allowed.

To use your words: Absolutely pathetic. But have your game, I can find other things to do. That's what ticks inside me every time I see these stupid banners.

I suppose next you will try to make a stupid argument that we shouldn't be able to block people or apply filters in chat.  For me this issue is about the game but obliviously for you this is about politics.  Speaking of irrational arguments have you even read what you wrote?

i apologize.  I forgot to add /sarc.

 

So many ruffled feathers.

Perhaps you find these banners stupid because you do not have one?  What would you use as a guild emblem if you owned one?  Would you not be proud to represent your guild in such a manner?  Like i stated before, your safe space attitude will not change a mechanic that has been in this game since its creation, dont like it?  Stop playing video games.

I think if you were really so sure that this wouldn't change you wouldn't be so aggressively opposed to people asking for the ability toggle this visual diarrhea off.

Hey, most of the country stood by and just watched while he has basically made his own personal political party.  We have only ourselves to blame....  What thou sowest, thou shalt reap.

Nope, couldn't give a crap about having banners. If I had to have one, I'd probably have something in line with the theme of the game; heraldry of some sort. Sure I'd love to represent a conquest publicly, but also in line with the theme of the game, and I wouldn't be offended if some chose to toggle it off. If the mechanic as you call it does indeed not change, that's fine. I won't stop playing video games, but I'll stop playing this video game.

I'm not offended in the slightest. You're just -----ing up my screenshots and immersion.

Yep, and PA had better figure out why that is (might not be needed in Korea), before they end up with a real mess on their hands.

 

And yea, allowing users to upload content is just a bad, bad idea. Thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of hours were invested in making this game look better than any other, and that's a strong attraction for everyone. Throwing away that advantage over other games is... very likely, commercial suicide.

No, see, no one cares about owning pixels in a video game that much. Players will first leave the game. And that's precisely why this is going to change. :)

just take the territory from them and put your own flag if you don't like it.

I don't think such option should be added.

Don't waste resources on people who get triggered by stuff like that.

Maybe the black screen on launch should be replaced with a big picture saying "TRIGGER WARNING"

It isnt a bad idea.. it is simply a bad idea in the west because the west has grown into a majority of self entitled cry babies whom accomplish nothing in society.  This isnt an issue in korea or any other version of the game that has been out for longer than us.

are people really talking shit about people being millennials or wanting the option to turn off guild flags?

its not like they are petitioning that you have to change your flag,  or that they should not be posted in game like that, all the want is the option to turn it off and your acting like a bunch of salty little kids that they are asking for something so simple saying that they think they are entitled and shit.

No, see, plenty of people care about owning pixels in a video game like this, or otherwise this topic(and the 30 others regarding it) would not have been made. But here we are.

That's why you're not a game developer.

People play for all kinds of different reasons, and they don't all have to align with yours. This is a pretty reasonable ask, by the way.

It's just a big way to troll. They do it because they know it bugs people.

Or...more likely... they actually really do like and support Kanye, Kim K, and Trump. It'll never change my mind. Everyone in those guilds support those people. Fact.

Agreed. I dont mind a filter, which is what you're asking for. Its reasonable and definately doable. I was making fun of the people who (in many other areas) are screaming "my immersion!, this is going to make me quit" etc. etc. 

+1 to optional setting, much like your cloak or many other aesthetic things.
