    Well, the news already portrays gamers as psychotic murderers or violent individuals. So you are correct sir.

    The laws in very much countries of EU and NA (USA, CANADA) are very strict about the use of the image of the child. Advertising, mass media and culture products. It is necessary, but first and especially for their own sake. To protect them.
    The punishment is very severe if you don´t follow this law. To call it censorships is just a tergiversation of the facts and the reality. You can check it. The laws are available for consulting.

    Anyway, for me, the Shai is like a Kender, Gnome, Halfling of whatever familiar race from the fantasy tropes. They look like kids just because it is CUTE and the people love it. I don´t understand this hysteria and the menaces to kill on sight every Shai. These forums sick me

    Please, enough. Most of the people here the only that needs is to grow and to mature.

    I don't know what's more entertaining, reading the fallout 76 metacritic reviews or this.

    The strange thing is it's not a kid, it's some pixels on a screen, it's nothing but a character, just like all the others, every character in bdo wears underwear, people (generally) wear underwear. Are you offended because there is a chance someone might see it for something other than some pixels on a screen? Have you formed some kind of intimate bonds with pixels in your past that leads you to think all people think like this?

    I'm sure when the creators of shai came up with the character, it fit in the story they wanted to tell, whether you like the story or not makes no difference. I can guarantee none of them had even the slightest idea sane people would go straight to thinking sexually about it, I'm sure they are asking themselves why you would even be thinking of some pixels on a screen to exploiting children, when there are no children, let alone anything real.

    All this nonsense is either virtue signaling for what? Your against pedo's? Well I suspect any sane person is against pedo's, so what virtue are you trying to signal? Or are you closet pedo yourself, vocalizing the possibility that you yourself can possibly find these pixels as real and form some sexual desire for them because they are in underwear, therefore all people would feel the same?

    I've never even spent time designing a character in a MMO, I take whatever it gives me, if the class is fun to play it, it's not my game, it's not my story, it's not real people. I want to play whatever the creators of the world I'm in intended it to be. Because some people are ****ed in the head, doesn't mean the rest of us need virtue signaling. Pedos are bad, everyone is agreed, wtf does that have to do with customization of a character, I've never used it but I'm disappointed that PA gave in to all the whiny virtue signaling people and closet pedo's projecting their disgust with themselves.

    Whatever floats your boat bud.. some of us dont have a desire or enjoyment out of messing around with a child "LIKE" AVI making there bodies look like X OR more like X ESPECIALLY not being able to see them in underwear....

    Your begining statement of this thread did not sound good and really makes you look like a creeper.. being upset with some conservative views on something that visually looks like a child becouse they are fully clothed is disgusting to me.

    Yes I am a father of 2 girls and your statement and fighting this puts you into a preditor point of view on my end... take it for what it's worth I would discontinue this argument it's only going to get worse..

    I found it entertaining initially but its gotten so weird. Everyone is so hung up on it and its gross that this is the conversation surrounding this new class. That this is the first thing that came to so many peoples mind is just so strange to me. Its a video game.... video games have fantasy creatures... video games often have child like characters.... many videogame protagonists are underage characters... etc. I use to love all the forum madness but this is just too weird... people complaining about sexualizing a character.... others responding that its an issue if thats the lens you view it through and EVERYONE being called a pedo..... so proud of this community.

    This actually reminds me of something.

    Was an expected move - kinda sad tho cause in the end if person a) wants lewd stuff he'll ger it anyway. Also if you guys are so upset bout shai, why not hatw every female class? They can all turned into a childish looking character.. even the guys.. if some1 wants shota stuff he ll get. But now since shai is next on the list everyonr loses their mind. People calling others pedos etc etc. I kind of disagree with the move cause it wont stop anything.. givin her a full body cover kinda ruins the "art" they created and lure even weirder peeps to it. I mean there is a fetish for everything right ?

    Although we may be 100% agreement on lore and understand fantasy. BUT this is a big but that % of everyday folks especially in the US dont.

    That is why the laws are so strict here. it does In fact LOOK like a child between 6 and 10 this perception is leading to the exact comments you are getting here as well as concerns from adults becouse BDO is not a majority of 15 year olds playing here some of us are in our 40's have families and kids.

    So we should ban petite women in the US? :thonk:

    Most petite women I have seen look really young but are above the age of 18.

    Vice Versa, child models look around the age of 18 or more but are actually below the age of 18 due to make up.

    What should we ban?

    You can edit length and general proportions just fine. IF they stay away from revealing costumes you will never have any issues ingame with the chars apperance either so is this actually a real problem or just something you made up because you are upset about the sensorship?

    "Just pixels on a screen" doesnt fly in cases of animated child pornography. Why would it be any different in a game like BDO?

    I would say that there is almost zero possibility of the devs not having knowledge about Tera and the issues that followed with the Elin race there. Its insanely ignorant to believe otherwise.

    Tbh if you just prefere to pick a preset and dont enjoy putting time and effort into character creators then why are you even upset? Surely there will be at least one costume for the class that you can tollerate ingame or comming in the near future.

    This reaction seems a bit unresonable judging by the trolly nature of the post you quoted.

    We should all calm down I guess. To OP: you can still customize your Shai with no problems. To the rest: this debate could go on for ever, there are two different schools of thought, both have some good arguments and some bad arguments, I guess the truth lies somewhere in between.

    As far as that goes there is a requirement in the US by federal law they have to post that these models or actors are 18 specifically for nudity no matter how young she looks..

    There was a big controversy with Howard Stern and the same situation with a porn star that looked like she was 12 but in reality was over 21..

    ANYTHING that looks like a girl is underage is scrutinized and or reported then removed. I am not so conservative that I am ignorant of your comments and I realize there is some very disturbing things on the internet but let's not confuse a situation with how BDO sexualizes every female characters in this game and having a child like AVI in the same situation... this is were I personally draw the line and is my limit with any game sooo yes the min this happens I will take my wallet elsewhere.

    She doesn't look like anything. It's a fictional fantasy character that does not exist, a bunch of pixels on-screen and has no age. If you feel so offended it's only because it's something you don't like, doesn't mean other's don't. "How do you dare to like something I don't / things I don't feel comfortable with!" argument, which is as moot as the entire western debate regarding paedophilia and a far cry from any actual adult-like behaviour.
