Is it just me, or is it on every COD so far the is always racism. To be honest it really saddens me to know that some people still feel that colour is an issue and even yet the fact people judge what ethnicity you are simply by the sound of your voice *covers face*. Yes you could say mute them but if im not mistaken COD is a team based game and we have mics in order to communicate with one another as a team. im a team player but i tend to lose games because either most players don't have a mic (not a big problem as its not a requirement) bu also because i have to mute those that do because i have insults thrown at me after a simple "someones above you" :/ like really? Search and Destroy and Search and Rescue being the fan favorite for racism as that is the one game mode most have mics.
Seriously i think all the producers being Infinityward and Treyarch need to bring in a system to report people for such verbal abuse, yes its online gaming and banter is a regular thing i do like to have a laugh and a joke but when people begin to use vulgar language along with such crude insults it does boggle my mind.
Simply its an idea but can we not just have options to report boosters, hackers etc but also racial because its an ongoing problem within many online games.
I don't necessarily think it's actually per say, directed at people. People just throw the N-word around like the f word now. I don't know who these people are so I can't really tell what kind of person they are but I just mute them. Most of the time, they're getting owned anyway.
your right racism over the internet is blatant, im surprised you want to communicate with randoms, most talk so much junk, pointless gibberish or sound like they wear huggies I don't even bother.
I think a reporting function for "racism" would go beyond their "call of duty" and simply reporting them by the "language" option is enough.
I mute them and tell them that I muted them. Most times hat I encountered this, it was some idiot running his blow hole thinking that he was funny to his friends so after I mute him I ask his friends if their buddy is still having fun saying crap after I muted him.
He usually leaves the lobby.
But you are right; it still ruins my gaming experience for a little while.
The good thing is that they are the exception and not the rule. I only play extinction lately, the team environment requires that we play as a Team so those idiots don't last.
Two thoughts here. One, stupid will always be with us. So thank goodness a mute button does exist. Two, you already have an offensive language report button. In fact, I'm pretty sure that it's the first item on the list of reportable offenses.
