People have also been offended by Satele Shan since her initials are a reminder of the bad WW2 days in Europe. There is no pleasing anyone. 2017, the year of the offended. I hope they skip it in history books.
Thank you to everyone who has used my referral link over the years and to all of the wonderful people I've met on here.

Oh, please.

We are talking about a game where players routinely dress up female characters and companions in "Slave Girl" bikinis.

The game has cutscenes in which NPCs or even player characters blackmail characters for sexual favors.

In certain storylines, you can do things like have sex with a female NPC and force your companion to stay and watch, or cut off an old man's head and deliver it to his wife.

There are many references and depictions in the game of murder, torture, enslavement, violent assaults, and all kinds of depravity.

Do you really think that the developers would give a damn about people being offended by the name "Hot Prospect" ... ?

As so many people on this thread have said, this is just a deflection, an excuse. The developers don't want to admit that they gave one of the new servers a really dumb name that players would be mocking the hell out of for as long as it exists, so they're spin-doctoring it to make it look like they're changing the name out of concern for the player community.

Points deducted for not working in "liberal".



I was unsubbed for a few weeks due to lack of funds and I want to get out my 2 on stuff I've missed. I don't think there was anything wrong with the name at all. I honestly didn't think of it being anywhere near offensive. It was the people whose heads are stuck in the gutters that made me have to go out of my way and google the term to even fathom the connection.

Didn't faze me either. In fact, I related the term to sales rather than what the preponderance of folk seemed to equate with it.

As for changing it, poor BW; damned if they do, damned if they don't.

My position, at the end of the day is: It's a server name, ffs. But others apparently really cared so...
