Blizzard cracks down on penis shaped universes

Written by Nick Farell


It is not the shape of the future
Blizzard seems a little concerned about the ways that gamers are using the map creation feature in Starcraft 2.

The idea that you can create your own map is fine, but some users appear to be a little testicular about the types of maps they are drawing. Blizzard has created a mechanism to flag and remove maps that are “deemed inappropriate” for various reasons. According to Blizzard community manager Lylirra on the game's official message board players are encouraged to share the maps they create through Battle.net, published maps are subject to review to ensure that they promote a fun and safe environment for all players.

If a map is found to contain inappropriate content, it will be removed from Battle.net and the map maker will be contacted via email. Apparently Blizzard is not just having problems with maps shaped like willies. Some people insist on naming planets and places things that will sail up the noses of others. Like you would expect from the US most of the names are racially bigoted, but equally there are some which are homophobic, sexist and just nasty.

That's why you shouldn't give the average idiot... I mean Joe, the chance to do so.

We all know that Blizzard doesn't have much of a Mojo or the use for one.

This is just another symptom of the abysmal implementaion of custom maps, they went for total control forcing people to publish simple maps they might only want for personal use.
Tbh before sc2 I had a rose-tinted view of blizzard as the supreme gaming company that really did go out of its way to please its fans. Not anymore

Get over it people. It's just one lousy map that doesn't impact SC2 in anyway with or without.

Dear Head Wanker-in-Chief, Nick Farrell:

Registered on Fudzilla solely to comment on your ridiculous attempts at "journalism."
Please stop talking about the US as if you actually know. Kindly stick to pretending you are a tech expert and refrain from adding your own quaint, cutesy opinions such as this gobsmacker:
"Like you would expect from the US most of the names are racially bigoted, but equally there are some which are homophobic, sexist and just nasty."
When you stop being an utter bigot yourself, only then will you have earned the right to badmouth others. Go back to junior high and learn how to write an article appropriately. I recommend paying special attention to a term called "objectivity" with which you are obviously unfamiliar.

@deez: ha ha! that was funny. i especially liked how you referred to Nick Farrell as "Wanker-in-Chief" before going on to complain about him stating that people from the US that are SC2 fans may post nasty things on the web. brilliant!
