In-game race-discrimination

AuthorIn-game race-discrimination
Just join that battle with the description..what they can do?ask empire block you?report you battle violation?if they get pissed off and AFK then you could report back them
for Jedi-Knight:
Lol, those are exactly my thoughts too.

As for being insulted by the racial discrimination.....
1.) It's just a game.
2.) You can always change races. Unless you are going to start using real world examples of discrimation against those who change races...
@16: It's a FICTIONAL WORLD, buddy. Calm the hell down already.
How would you know to make the difference? Why should racial discrimination be allowed in one and prohibited in the other? (no matter which is which)

#22: 1.) It's just a game.
No! It's not! If I may quote https://www.lordswm.com/pl_info.php?nick=lexa
It's a SERVICE. Not a game. It's a WORLD. Not a game. It's a COMMUNITY. Not a game. Anyone who says, "it's just a game" is missing the point.

So you see? You'r missing the point! The point is that: THIS IS the world, the reality! The other parallel stuff you'r living in, where you must wake up every day, you must eat, must feed your children, MUST go to work!!!, and die only once, that must be some sort of nightmarish virtual imagination...
Unless you are going to start using real world examples of discrimation against those who change races...

Am I the only one, who have thought of Michael Jackson? :)
@12 So what seems to be the problem officer?

The problem is that in the game there is a balance between factions. There is no faction that beats everyone, for example, barbarians (almost) always wins against wizards, wizards almost win against necromancers, etc, etc...

I very well know that battle description is not an obligation but it is a sort of bad sportmanship to break it, even if this type of bad sportmanship is specifically allowed by the game mechanics (yes, some people might have a conscience and feel bad).

So asking such things breaks the balance of a group battle.
And on top of it, it is impolite towards those who are targeted. Not to mention that "NO MAGAS" is also pejorative.

I wanted to bring this up to discussion to the community. Yes, I know I can go in, full arted/enchanted and break their game off since none has magic protection. But I think that's beyond the point.

Thanks for attention.
I wish this was a joke but it doesn't appear to be. Although I agree that trying to block a certain faction from a PVP is cowardly, to actually be offended because of a claim of racial bias is.....laughable.

Back in my day, everyone told ethnic jokes. All races, cultures, and religions were hit and nobody got offended. We all laughed. Too bad today's world is one of babies who get offended for any little thing.

People in power use this sort of thing to silence free speech. If we can't hear certain words without falling apart, what would we do when faced with a real enemy? Hide under the bed? This politically correct nonsense is doing serious damage to society. Get over it.

I would also join battles that asked for no mages and get great satisfaction lighting up the battle creator. The real world can be tough. There are plenty of people on the earth who don't even get three meals a day. You should check yourself with that.

This isn't an attack on you personally, it is an attack on our pathetic and weak nanny world. I think I just threw up in my mouth.

Stay thirsty my friends
Yes, I know I can go in, full arted/enchanted and break their game off since none has magic protection.

How would that bring "balance" to a battle? If anything you've just made an argument against your own case: if some factions have an advantage over some other factions, then by asking the advantageous faction NOT to join that fight, aren't players doing the right thing to keep the "balance" in a combat?

And for the last time, please, people don't hate your (fictional) race, they just know you'd have an advantage in the fight and/or are interested in a different kind of battle. Racism's definition refers to the belief that the inherent genetic factors that make up one's own race make you superior to others. That is NOT why people put this in the battle rules.

As you heard from Pantheon and Jedi, many people just take it as a compliment, not an insult. I mean, if the server prevented inter-race marriages and relationships then MAYBE you'd have about half a case. As such we have Wizards married to Elves with Barbarian children and Demon siblings. How're we racist again?

You coming in here screaming discrimination seems either like making a mountain out of a molehill or a childishly immature cry for attention.

Thanks for attention.

Yup.

This thread needs to be shut down ASAP. It's completely pointless.
^ Sorry; that was me - posted with alt-char without noticing. (I smell my first forums ban.)
I am thrilled by the amount of venom and acrimony at my address that drips out of some posts right above... (this is just beautiful!!! :))

That let aside, I still invite people to **debate** and **discuss** what they think about such things breaks the balance of a group battle and impolite towards those[...] as per #25 which takes away some of the allegory and metaphors of my previous posts...


I thank thee for some of the constructive remarks, so far:

#2: I must say that I too feel sadly discriminated against. (a careful eye would read "discriminated", of course! :))
#7: Feel free to join such battles.
#13: "no wizzard description" is cowardice
#14: keep busting their games, until they get sick and tired of you.
#15: this has got to be the most hilarious thing i have seen on this forum. and trust me, i have seen pretty silly things LOL xDDDD ( :):):) )
#20: I take that as an indirect 'compliment'.

Again feel free to talk about the (real) issue I raised. Oh, and asking for the thread to be closed is tantamount as asking for you to have the last word...
Thank you, and may whoever wants from the community express their point of view (if have one!)
1. https://www.lordswm.com/group_wars.php
2. Create a challenge.
3. Description: "Wizards only!!!"
4. Create the challenge and join it!
5. Eoy!
#22: 1.) It's just a game.
No! It's not! If I may quote https://www.lordswm.com/pl_info.php?nick=lexa

If Lexa will write "This is stupid to spend all you time in game - go play outdoors" you will do that?
No, don't go outdoors; the wizards might get you.

Oh! And whoever said "it's just a game" is simply a level which has been beaten.

Opinions are delicious, but please don't let them suck the blood of others-
Actually people that put such a battle up, did use all their arts, enchantment and talents to be prepared against all the other factions only, giving them a huge advantage.

Its like a level 8 player setting up a group battle with the description "level 8 players on my side, level 4 or lower on the other side".

Keep in mind that you are not breaking any rules if you would join as a level 12 player on the opposite side. Therefore I let this up to you if you would join such battles or not.
Setting up a battle with such restrictions is lame, and joining it despite these restrictions is rude.

'nuff said.
Read 23 again. Naviron is joking.

The only sensible thing in this thread is the stuff about the rules. The comments on a battle aren't binding. You will annoy some people if you don't adhere to those restrictions.

Do you delight in annoying people? If so join battles and don't adhere to the battle creators request. Are you a pathetic person who feels joy in winning even if you have a huge advantage over opposition? If so join battles and don't adhere to the battle creators request. It's not against the rules
Here's my 2 bit :)
In the end I feel bad because of my race... In some countries posting such descriptions (race bias) in any public venue would surely pave your road straight into the jail... All 5 Star hotels have "Rights of admission reserved"
But that's not the point.
When someone says NO Wizards/Elves/whatever... tell me what is he thinking ?
1. Wizards/Elve/whatever are easy to kill, it will be too easy a victory.
OR
2. Wizards/Elve/whatever are too strong ( Read, I lack skills to beat them) so please don't enter ?
But that's also not the point...
Its their party , they get to choose whom to invite... but i agree it iscase of bad sportmanship, and gatecrashing is not to nice either (but fun;)
