EM Event on LS

@Mesanna

Just came to say, I am unsure who approves the EM events, but really? A golden haired leader building a wall to keep out refugees???

Can we please keep politics out of UO?

If you don't seen the toxicity of this....

It may be tongue and cheek but seriously.

    Sasha, I see you are on a non-English speaking shard? This is clearly aimed at our sitting President of the United States. Totally uncalled for and very distasteful coming from a business not knowing who supports who. I really hope they at Broadsword as a whole find this distasteful as well, regardless of ones political alignment.

    If they want to make office jokes that's on them at their work, but to bring it into the game like this is wrong.

    Woooooow, really?
    A Goblin, a Gargoyle, and a Drow walk into a bar . . .

    Never be afraid to challenge the status quo

    I agree that politics has no place in this game, but this is pretty ridiculous. The EM should be fired, like last night. @Mesanna ; really ? 
    You and Several Others like this.


    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

    I totally agree.

    Sadly she approves all events. To be voicing politically in opposition or in favor of any sitting president, politician, or really anything polorizing irl...ruins the immersion of this which is supposed to be an escape from reality even for a moment. Bad taste...poor management. Nothing new in the realm of Sosaria unfortunately..

    Strange I thought the realm of USA was proud of their "right" of free speech.

    This is a PRIVATE game/forum and we get enough of this in our daily lives we do not need it in our UO world too.

    Very proud of free speech ya dunk, however why the fk would an EM use a 20yo medieval wizard game to promote political beliefs..negative or positive. Last I checked this was a fantasy world of wizards and warriors, not the political system of the USA...

    I have noticed this forum becoming as left wing as uostratics. Lots of extreme left wing views get posted here that don't get removed but instead are welcomed. So many people are anti rewarding actual skill gameplay:
    Lots of posts about how puzzles are unfair because only smart people can do them.
    Lots of posts about how they should allow Powerscrolls in trammel because currently more skillful players only get them.

    In my opinion these are dangerously extremist left wing views.

    It seems you can be political, as long as you lean left.

    Wow, I guess we found the people who can't take satire. I will say this if you are going to be a bully you better not have thin skin. People seem to think You shouldn't make fun of Trump, but that is literally the only thing he does when he speaks, so no I don't think jokes prodding a bully are too extreme I think they are fine.

    If you want to blindly follow him whatever but toughen up if you think that making fun of a guy who literally ONLY insults people is too far.

    I'm extremist ?

    Only smart people can do puzzles? Most smart people I now have better things to do.
    Power Scrolls in trammel is a mater of not enjoying PvP not skill.

    An extremist is someone who can't keep their sense of humour when listening or seeing something that opposes they beliefs. Lighten up.

    If you didn't enjoy the event leave. If you have an objection to the content, file a complaint with his/her supervisor. Calling for him to be fired is over the top unless you Know he violated his instructions from his employer.

    I mean I am pretty Anti Fascist, Considering I believe in democracy. But seeing someone that's a thin-skinned bully as a hypocrite doesn't really show that aspect of me off, Trump supporters need to stop being a bunch of snow flakes.

    If an EM mocked Obama, they would probably be fired for racism.
  • CazadorCazador Posts: 67
    This is the most retarded thing ever.. @Mesanna
    these types of events are what you promote? No wonder the population dwindles further and further into the Abyss. You can’t even find EM’s that can come up with a robust story, some shoddy RP, and a sweet event item to most likely be duped off and sold for $. GJ!

    Probably depend on if it was racist (Birther) or criticizing one of his policies (illegal drone attacks) God knows more of you should have stuck to policy.

    As much fun as it is to bait right wingers it really is too easy.

    My point is politics should not be in the game But it is an internal issue at Broadsword and EA. If the EM in question deserves disciplinary action or to be fired it is not up to a bunch of snowflakes on the internet who were offended. If you have a problem with him file a complaint and calm down.

    One would hope the EM's all have a written set of guidelines and policies but having dealt with large corporations all my life I wouldn't bet on it.

    Generation Snowflake, or Snowflake Generation, is a neologistic term used to characterize Millennials and Generation Z as being more prone to taking offence and having less psychological resilience than previous generations, or as being too emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own.

    Snowflake is a 2010s derogatory slang term for a person, implying that they have an inflated sense of uniqueness, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, or are overly-emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions. Common usages include the terms special snowflakeGeneration Snowflake, and snowflake as a politicized insult.

    Sounds like a bunch of socialist Democrats that beat up people who disagree with them, just go to Berkeley or Oregon as a conservative or a pro lifer or just disagree with any socialist Demon and watch what they do.

    Clearly this "political satire" stuff this can go both ways, right? So an EM could plan an Event about a, e.g., warmongering & whining ex-president wife and her links to "strange" activities in Pizza parlours basements, "unfortunate accidents" resulting in the death of some of her party electoral staff and the use of private mail storage sytems (hey, there is an idea for a new Deco Mailbox to be sold in the UO Store!  B) ), and be sure that it will be appoved by BS Management, right? :D ;)
    I.

    BTW:  A single one of the jokes, the one about the "Samovar of Steaming Covfefe", WAS actually funny, IMO... :p
