There was a thread on this article just today, but I feel like this deserves it's own thread considering how this goes beyond a simple toxic community.



With plans for playable female characters and a choice of ethnicity on the horizon (you can only create white male characters at the moment), I expect the vitriol to get worse. The Mordhau team seem to expect that too, and say their current plan is to let players 'disable' these new options if they want. "That goes back to a similar situation as the chat filters," Geach says. "Whatever stance we take officially, some group of people are going to be upset with us. And so, ideally we’d put the power in the players’ hands, and give them the option to enable and disable different things.

Yeah, this is very deeply troubling and I wish I was still refund eligible. I'm not going to finance or otherwise support this disgustingly violent centrism and chud pandering behavior.

looks like they need to switch from the mordhau stance to the rightfuckingthing stance and cancel any sort of feature

Comparing this kind of options to filtering chats is the most baffling thing I've read all week, and is just Monday.

Yeeeaaah, I don't know how anyone could call that a solution.... Unless you turn the option on and the game becomes nothing BUT women and people of color.

Fuck the poeple that want this and fuck the people that put it in.

I mean seriously, what?

Nazis continue to be snowflakes and these devs are just enabling them. Fuck this company.

So make the infection worse, so it can turn green, meaning it will have to be cut off, to protect the rest of the body.

I just learned about this dev from the other thread, but are these the worst developers ever? This is a first, openly racist-friendly developers. The option to erase other races. THQ Nordic's crown has been snatched.

They should do this but only as a way to see everyone that's decided to use this option, then ban them forever. I know that wouldn't happen, just would be funny.

The developers are just making my life better by not making me spend my precious money on their trash. Thanks Triternion!

Also go fuck yourselves.

I don't know what kind of game Mordau is, but it'd be great if this turned out to actually be some sort of passive aggressive jab at alt-righters.. i.e. you can disable PoC & women, but it breaks the game because interacting with the PoC & women is required to progress.

Sadly, it probably isn't.

Witcher 3, Kingdomcome Deliverance and Mordau. Something about these medieval games... something about each of these game's developers...

Was really interested in this game, now not so much.

Will wait for Chivalry 2 I guess.
