To the developers,

 

The inclusion of RNJesus as a crew member is unnecessary, insensitive, and offensive.

 

I'd suggest removing this "fantastical creature" crew member, or add one for the Prophet, Buddha, etc.  Heck, you can even add a Flying Spaghetti Monster.

 

Done.

Excuse my curiosity, however I'm struggling to see how it can be 'Insensitive, and offensive.' I mean don't get me wrong, you want to sum up the whole thing about crew skins, is that all the crew customization can be called 'unnecessary' however it is still something new, and can bring a new 'flare' to something, of which some of my friends who play, can enjoy more. (Mainly because they actually complain at times about the lack of crew customization.) On top of the many things that need fixing in the game.

I get everyone (mostly) has their gripes, or frustrations, about RNG in one way or another, but I think this is one of the few things they gave in the update that gives people that little more space to 'personalize' their crews and or tanks, even if unnecessary. (I find it quite funny because it gives me a reason to yell at my crew and being able to call RNGesus something like 'Harold' will bring a new conversation starter to clan chat. "Dangit Harold!" will definitely grab a few people's attention.

However I wish you best of luck in delivering your feedback about this to the devs, but as stated above, the forums may not be the best way to do it here.

I don't have a problem with the crew skins at all.

 

I don't have a problem with RNGesus being an internet meme.

 

I do have a problem superimposing a twenty sided die on the body of an obvious Christ-like figure, complete with robes and a halo.  That is what is insensitive and offensive to me.  A lot more so than someone running around with 666 on their tank.  

 

My only sarcasm is that while the developers are going around offending, potentially, Christians, lets go ahead and offend everyone else.

I like this change. I can change all my ZSBIA crew into a clone army and tell who is who/what right away.

You do realize that sarcasm doesn't translate in a venue full of blathering idiocy right?? How do you know anything is supposed to be sarcastic when people are on here making stupid posts all of the time. The fact that you are wrong pretty much proves this point...

Every conceivable thing, no matter how trivial, would be offensive to someone... you're proof of that

Guys let is get down to the "nitty gritty". Oh wait I cannot say that as it's offensive to the black and coloured people as that refers to what was left at the bottom of the slave boats upon docking.

 

So anyway, back on track! So many everyday comments appear to be offending the snowflake people especially when it's not deliberate.

 

However the meme, "RNgesus" if googled within the Urban Dictionary shows its meaning as: RNGesus, a portmanteau of an acronym RNG (random number generator) and the name Jesus, is the name of a deity responsible for luck, chance, and random elements in video games.

 

Now let us change part of one word in that whole explanation and see what happens and the offence it causes. It will be compared to Islamaphobia which appears to be the snowflakes latest craze. RNghammad! what if they had chosen that word. Would all Muslims not be up in arms that their diety was being mocked? Of course they would and rightly so as that is their faith and believe.

 

Therefore why is it that the Christain Faith is allowed to be mocked instead?

 

Make no bones about it, the name RNGesus is most certainly offensive and should be removed forthwith.

I forgive but I do not forget!!!

 

All that remains is for the Devs to remove their own offensive skin.

 

Next time that ban hammer comes down on any player for Religion then the Devs need to eat their own words.

 

Guys, please don't think that I say the above words lightly. Any child under the age of 16 is capable of writing and then saying they don't understand the arguements regarding religion. I accept that lightly. (IS Brides etc) but for WG to BLATANTLY introduce a skin based upon a Religious Meme is scandalous.

 

Devs, write me up for using Red ink!!!

I do so agree.

 

We have gone from an era of adults to a bunch of 1990 - millenials that are so offended with life that was fought and died for, to give them a balanced life and still they become offended at every single word they can find.

 

LBGT and whatever the rest of that acronym is becomes the example. Those protesters are God like.

 

Shall be have RNlgbt are Gods?

I think a picture of the prophet Mohamed with a picture of him smiling and holding a bag of credits and to be called "Profit Mohamed" would be cool.

It is blatant hypocrisy to ban people for being insensitive to certain religions (Mostly just one) while having RNGesus in game. I personally don't care if they have this in game but I do care that there seems to be a huge double standard when it comes to these things.
