No, no, you said it much better. Good on you.

I'm reasonably confident "Burger" is a real name here.

I'd need someone from Russia to comment on "Slutsky".

But the important part is not happenstance stereotyping, but incidences of completely made up names.

Burger is an actual American name and not a racist meme.

So is Slutsky.


Thanks for the catch Killertomato.

This is a problem?


Yea, cause Shekelstein isn't an Israeli name, it's a racist caricature that was submitted to the "your nation needs you" threads.

This is pretty much the equivalent of Sum Ting Wong and Ho Lee Fuk being in the Chinese name roster, or Kebab Removic being in the Yugoslavian name list.

Even if it shouldn't be removed on the ground that it's racist, it should be removed on the ground that it's not an actual name.

Yeah, it's fun and all, but it's the same as having Fishandchipson for UK or Bratwurstundbierein for Germany.
I submitted my own name for the list. Why? 1st of all I did serve in the IDF. 2nd, there are plenty of Russian expatriates in Israel, even before the 1990 immigration wave. 3rd, simply looking for it in FB gets a whole truckload of ultraorthodox jews worldwide. :lol:


Why not Opiumson for the UK, seems more appropriate.

So yeah, EdgeLords are trying to justify stuff by ignorance. The rest of us are just caving into political correctness. :roll:

There are like 5 hebrew names, the rest is just what /pol/ thinks are jewish surnames...

Id say change them, although i found it funny when i saw that the unit that won me the game was called Rothschild, its obviously bad.

or change all other names to the most horrible stereotypes...that would be stupidly fun again.


Rotschild was my idea :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ah yes the actual problems™ totally not derailing...

Genuinly this, its not a good 'joke'...it gets tired really fast.

If you think anti-semitic memes are entertainment that probably says a lot about you.

You can find a hell of a lot of borderline offensive jokes entertaining without it actually saying much about you. When you actually use this "humor" and these "jokes" with a (semi-)serious political opinion behind it, it becomes problematic.

What is removing these names going to do to how the game plays?

Nothing.

Apparently it'll reduce the amusement of a few EdgeLords though. FSM forbid. :roll: As if there isn't Chatgame for that sort of base humor still.

Slutsky* and it's not even transcripted correctly from cyrillic.

Oh nooo, I find wrongly transcripted "Slootskiy" name to be offensive and stereotypical, I guess I should totally go and complain on the forums. Muh political correctness, no fun allowed!

There was no warchat in EE.

You find stereotypical jokes on different people funny? Oy vey, you must be an anti-semite and a xenophobe, goyim.
