Its not slippery slope when it happens frequently. The mask was just easy pickings. If their goal is to harass a streamer, then nothing has changed for them.
If you let genuine racists control what you think is right and wrong then they still control your life. They still have power over you. Look at how the pepe meme almost became a nazi thing despite the creator being firmly against it. If actual racist want something to be seen as offensive they will get you angry enough to demand it's destruction.
In short I don't need to tell you have bunny legion is offensive. You'll be explaining it to me if they ever pick it.
Streamer mode: hide other players names and characters before game
Streamer queue: delays matchmaking while searching (behind the scenes, delay randomly what batch matchmaking you join) so people can't queue snipe easily. Not a Streamer only queue.
I still think both of these would have more of an impact than removing cosmetics, but we will just have to wait and see what happens.
But the goal was to harass POC streamers. That was the whole issue... which is why the masks are getting removed...
How is removing all of the masks discrimination? Who is being discriminated against here?
It's only irrelevant when it doesn't fit the narrative that you're trying to present, get it. This is obviously not going anywhere.
You have tried to derail this thread multiple times by bringing up random, unrelated topics like coulrophobia and paedophilia.
You are actively trying to take the focus away from the harm that Leatherface's masks created by refusing to accept that they needed to go and by constantly attempting to make the decision seem absurd and unreasonable by equating it to things that are completely unrelated to it.
I'm not derailing anything by giving examples of how removing masks fixes nothing.
Idc if they're gone, I'm saying the devs are lazy on how they address harassment.
You know just because you don't agree with someone else, doesn't make them a racist right? Calling everyone who doesn't agree with you a racist is pathetic.
OK this is going around in circles now and being taken really off topic.
The feedback with regards to the removal of these masks has been heard...and I emphasis we're removing these down to the way they've been used within the game and that hatefulness like that, has no place in our game, or on our forum.
