    If she is only as tall as tamer then you run into the same issue.
    If she as a hip or boob slider they are lewding her.
    If she is taller then the other shai's by any large margin, she wouldn't be a shai.

    But nice picture btw

    The Shai is not a child. Just a little force to be reckoned with.

    You guys still fighting this battle? I think it’s been about a yeard and chane since I commented on the Shai censorship thread.

    I've only been playing for about 3 months, so it's fairly new to me.

    I meant to type out on my phone year and a half and this topic is still going on. Yeah, topic was made or brought up the same day the Shai class was released.

    This is actually the 2nd thread for this topic. The first topic was created on the same day Shai was released and was under the General forum. That thread was locked after reaching 130+ pages due to the amount of derailing and endless argument cycles. This thread was created shortly after the first was locked.

    I will continue to support the idea that the localization(censorship) of the Shai's default underwear should be reverted back to that of the original Korean version of the game, although I am skeptical that it will happen.

    I do not support any sort of censorship. Even if Shai was 1 year old it should be released as it is. This is video game where everything is fictional and NOTHING to do with real life thinks like pedophiles or violence. Anyone who claims this is pure hypocrite and delusional.

    So you might wonder why?

    Well look it at this way. Shai may look like child to you so what are you when you smash shai with your long sword or shoot it with bows? Child beater.

    We can go on and on regarding violence, sexualized stuff in video games and claim how they create criminals in real life and stuff but there is 0 scientific evidence to back this up yet alone the fact we all "commit" disturbing activities in game.

    In world there is hundreds of millions players and yet VERY VERY small portion of those players has commited any sort of crime

    There is 0 reason to censor shai in any form and countries that have laws to ban fictional content if it relates to nudity of under aged character are twisted from head and delusional.

    Besides each country has their own law what is illegal and legal. In my country 16 years old is legal meanwhile 16 is actually "underaged" in here too. They're not allowed to buy alcohol, cigs, drive car, vote in elections, do porn etc but 99 year old grandpa can screw that 16 years old without getting in trouble.

    Then we can start arguing that someone who is dating person who looks like 14 years old or is midget is pedophile. Stupidity of human race. Hope dolphin uprising and victory for dolphins

    I mostly agree with what you have to say. My main issue with the Shai's appearance is a aesthetic one, she's not even sexualized, like at all in game, none of her outfits are that sexual, and frankly having played the character a bit more, I don't really think she looks like a kid. Maybe somewhat childlike, uncomfortably so at times, but ultimately it is more a result of her Voice acting and a couple of her animations than ought else. Well that and that you cannot do anything that might make her look a bit older, I.E. make her more full bodied or give her wrinkles forcing you to play her in the most youthful looking state possible for her race. The game also further exaggerates this issue by using Shai models for all the children in game,

    Let's not kid ourselves this is not Terra online, who's freedom of expression I also defend, albeit I will happily call them sick degenerates regardless. Their vomit inducing take on a small race literally drove me away from that game...

    However, I think we as a species should be a bit more reticent to accept the rule of any other species, especially one so infamous for it's sadistic treatment of other species and violent sexual predilections... Humanity First!

    BDO is a overly sexualized game. Shai's design nor costumes really fit into that category. Because the nature of her design a lot of people have a problem with the character. You don't play one because you want to get off on long legs and giant boobs. But you play one because more than likely you enjoy the game play and skill set of the character.

    The biggest problem I have with kakao's censorship isn't the censorship itself but how its poorly implemented. The shorts clip through most of her outfits, the way it dyes looks awful and the over all design clashes with the aesthetics of her costumes.

    I certainly agree, the censorship is unneeded and actively hurts a couple of her outfits. The only reason I even leveled Shai is because I like group support, but the Wizard is OP a F*** and the Valks gameplay is clunky as hell, not to mention how stupid her awakening is concept wise (I am sorry but the Lance Is intended to be used from Horse back and is at best a Two-Handed weapon on foot, and a bad one at that. I don't care that this is fantasy it's impractical, and it just looks silly!)

    If anything my main issue is how the childlike voice giggles as she murderizes my foes, it just ain't right I tell you! I haven't really attacked any in PvP just yet myself, so I cant tell you if that bothers me all that much.

    Of course you didn't really address the question of the hour, are you with these filthy Dolphin sympathizers? (Please feel free to ignore me being an idiot)

    Yay, new Terrmian outfit set today, and again the Shai sticks out like a sore thumb.

    To anyone who wants this censorship, I just want to know...what is (apparent) age inappropriate about this outfit that justifies that Shai has to have her underwear be visible?

    [​IMG]

    Where do you live that this is expected? Where I live a kid running around in her sleepwear (even with a dress like this over it) would be more cause for alarm than this dress alone.

    I really never liked the ridiculously log legged characters and stupidly large boobs, but then the size of the characters head never changes, so they look all out of proportion and awkward. Every character I created I made to be as short as possible to keep the proportions more accurate. Even with my Shai, I made her the as short as possible. The best part, to me, is them combat play of the Shai, being a fan of the underdog, it's great to see Litlbit destroy an enemy 10 times her size. Joyful giggles and all.

    This was my last commission for awhile and it puts the size of the Shai into perspective. The other 3 characters are from some of my favorite anime. And yes, I had the artist remove the cheesy pajamas because it just looks ridiculous. menotu001a_small.jpg

    I put together this comparison image to show the Termine outfit before and after the NA/EU "localization." Feel free to tell me how inappropriate the before image is that warranted the censorship:

    I usually shorten the legs on my chars somewhat and lengthen the torso so that the overall height stay about the same, but the proportions work better.

    The main problem of the developers to not do it as I think, is that the censored underwear is directly painted over the skin texture, that's why every other clothes show them and all the underwears that reaches EU/NA are censored too.
    And... don't know at what level they can access them as distributors, or need to wait until korea works in it.
