NCsoft West Addresses Censorship Concerns

121 posts in this topic

Very glad to see this. It seems as though they're at least in touch with the murmuring among the community enough that they can address the major concerns in updates like this. Now all the censorship threads/debates can be squashed and people can get back to impatiently waiting for the release.

Seems logical, and hopefully this isn't a bunch of corporate double-talk they're spewing and they end up going back on their word, but for now I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.

This is extremely important news. A game like this one can't start out with bad press. It's a domino effect, get your hardcore fanbase angry and watch it all go sour :yes:

Preserving the art, what draws us to B&S in the first place, is so very much important to us. Thank you NCSoft for staying true to the art.

This is one of those rare cases where I 100% agree with Ghastly.

This is extremely important news and not only a huge relief as a fan, but more so from a concerned consumer. Little mistakes, on or before an MMOG launch can cause a huge amount of problems that stay long-term.

Hopefully they continue on the right path.

Really glad to hear that they won't censor the game in the west. But Frogster said the same with Tera and in the End they even censored blood. Let's hope they are not trying to lie to us :P

I am so happy about this.

This is actually great of NCSoft concerning about fan based requests even though the game development has barely started.

Thx again. Still can't wait for the game to release.

Still waiting...

Holy cow, is really NCSoft worried about their customers opinion?? Is this the end of the world? :blink:

But if they're gonna do just some minor modification, why should the age limit of the game be still "pending"? Just asking, i really don't get that "modifications to the marketing material" thing....what kind of adjustments could they make, without altering the original artistic style?

"It is NCsoft West's intention to accurately depict the game in its original..."

"We are not planning to censor or alter the actual in-game content..."

Intention and planning aren't confirmation at all :D

I have the intention and i´m planning to play the game at release.... that doesn't mean i will when it does....

I also didn't get it.

I hope they don't gonna spend a whole year to translate the game (Like Tera did), so we should at least force them to announce the ETA.

I hope they keep the original voice acting, and then just add subtitles :)

or have it as an option in the game or something.

also, where is your signature from?

NCSoft just sold a collector's edition(or deluxe whatever it's called) o/

Way to go!

The reason they can't show "adult" rated trailers is because it would limit the forums where these trailers could be shown on.

You don't see porn on gaming sites either, right? :j

That was my initial thought when I saw the trailer. The censorship was just so the video wasn't pulled from various sites for being "too porn-y". And sure, they do use "intending" and "planning" and all that kind of stuff, but they DID make the effort to address the issue of concern, so that in itself is positive. Bonus points to NCSoft for letting us know.

Glad NcSoft addressed censorship concerns for their fans in this early stage. Doubtful they will give over Blade and Soul to that frogster/gameforge for EU with their bad reputation.

Wonder how the ESRB rating could be any different for an MMO? Should be the same Dead or Alive(Console)or Age of Conan(MMO) because their all video-games in a nut-shell under the same rating system.
